Warren Ellis (seen here) is a writer that I pay attention to. His book Shivering Sands inspired me deeply, not so much in content but more-so in composition and style. The note below is from an installment earlier in the week at his blog Warren Ellis dot com. I stop in there a few times [...]
Just be grateful you dont have to deal with me, in the physical, every day of your lives. NinjaMotorhome keeps you that safe distance, otherwise you would get prowled by Wolfman. And by prowled, yes: I mean “prowled”. The the secret working title to this pic is: “henchbot relaxing at home“. Note the red gloves, [...]
Normally, news pithy as this wouldnt see light of day @ Ninja BUT: See who’s playing role of Blackbeard? oh yes…..what better role could be cast for Ian McShane after such lofty heights as the great Al Swearengen. There is no better role, Blackbeard is the scurviest dog of all time and McShane will do [...]
Listen to The National. Really. Do it. From the open mic event today @ Whitechapel. Nothing special, Im just being lazy and blockquoting everything so I dont have to tell you the same thing twice. Its pissing down proper here in Seattle Wa, anarchy from the skies always sets this town ablaze, be it snow/sun/rain. [...]
In the background today is the Nov 2k10 Gorilla VS Bear Mixtape. Its like any mixtape with its hits and misses so remember that once you press play. The deeper you go down the rabbit hole the better it gets. Here ye be: Gorilla vs. Bear November Mixtape Forest Hipster is such an awesome description. [...]
The City is gripped with fear, crippled with terror at the onslaught of snow just belted across the face of this unprepared town. Cars lie haphazardly abandoned on bridges, roads and interstates. The gale force winds threaten to knock out power, that very threat keeps our kind citizens behind closed doors, quaking at what may [...]
Check it out.
In less than 36 hours I am assuming post as first mate aboard sailing vessel Wandering Star, Seattle on a three day sail around the Sound. Captained by Jerry Ceis and including the freshly minted, honorary pirate: Dave Henderson. Cabin boy: as yet unknown. my favorite part of this post was adding the tags.
I went to Starbucks again today. This time she bought my coffee, we talked about unrest in Thailand for fucks sake. I used to never go to Starbucks but now I’m there every day and Im on Facebook every day, Im even applying a CAPS to Facebook!!! Things are going downhill fast. Im not supposed [...]
Finally something that DIDNT happen in Enumclaw Washington. This is what happens when you ask for a new ScienceLab! you filthy Squidlets.
Welcome aboard: bring me vodka so I can function and possibly fire this thing back up. Return to broadcast is imminent.
The Rendezvous landed on the greatest weekend of all time for ski-bums in the PACNW: the Dirtbag Ball at Crystal Mountain. If you dont know what it is, it doesnt matter….its easy to explain: Ski Patrol sells tickets to a huge rager in a private lodge and tells everyone to dress up and go nuts, [...]
Lots of traffic this weekend in the motorhome, including an afternoon where I left the rig to the devices of my companero’s as I wobbled around the lot making the Mayors’ rounds, rig to rig collecting “votes” and giving away booze in anticipation of next seasons electoral cycle. I paid the price, in spades. Someone [...]
BREAD, BOY! yeah, i DID file that under food porn.
An estimated 10 million gallons of untreated wastewater was discharged into Elliott Bay on Monday night from the West Point Treatment Plant in Seattle’s Magnolia neighborhood.
Ive been doing “local things” for a number of days now and short of riding those damn ducks all over town, I think Ive just about got the list of “stuff to do while your in town”whittled down to nothing. Being obsessed with frontier history/western cultural narratives I was only too happy to oblige a request [...]
You can either stare at Frost Kraken here all day, or you can buy it here all day. There were only 3 left but as of now, I assure you: there are only 2. Yet another treasure from The Wonder Closet. Thanks to Gauger for the goods.
Ive blown my hotmail account to bits and it was absolutely premature. Sifting through the wreckage will take the weekend, in the meantime email me @ email@example.com. Or you can text via sms, on my new droid smartphone……which had absolutely nothing to do with the utter destruction of a certain email account. Really, nothing. The [...]
