Seattle Space Needle Reflection at Night

Seattle in 1962

Seattle in 2014

Be sure to fast forward to 5:10 where the world was introduced to the wireless pager. It’s the size of a small building and weighs only 800lbs, but every drug dealer on Rainier had one by the end of the week.

Speaking of blasts from the past, an artist made this rendering in 1914. It depicts what he thinks Seattle will look like in 100 years, or 2014:

Seattle in 2014

It’s hard to believe that Seattle will look like this in just two short years, but I still have faith. I can’t wait to fly in the

Playing the Odds on the 520 Bridge

520 Bridge

520 Bridge

Today, tolling began on the 520 Bridge.

As a person who crosses the bridge 5, maybe 10 times per week, you might think that I dutifully purchased a ‘Good to Go’ pass yesterday, the day before, or even months ago.

Were you to think this, you would be wrong.

“But why, Rex? Do you not realize that a Good to Go pass saves you one dollar and fifty cents every time you cross the bridge? Do you not trust Bill Nye?”

Of course I trust Bill Nye. We all trust Bill Nye. Still, after a great deal

Sprint Paperless Suggestion

So, I just got finished paying my Sprint bill online, and on the final page, I watched as the company admonished me to “go paperless” in order to “reduce clutter and help the environment”.

I was heartened. It was very considerate of Sprint. I had no idea they were so concerned about my tidiness or the state of our local forests.

After I made my payment, however, I realized that something was amiss when I was told by the very same company to PRINT A COPY OF MY BILLING CONFIRMATION FOR MY FILES!

But … but … wait …

Americans love their lame, gratuitous, self-congratulatory, end-of-year retrospectives.

The media loves them even more, as recycled content makes for easy filler during the under-staffed holiday season.

I’ve generally avoided the trend myself, but this year, I am going to indulge myself.

In the past 11 months, 3 weeks, and 2 days, I have taken 600GB of photographs, and my trusty MacBook Pro (my primary workhorse) only holds 1TB. It is time to throw them all in the desktop array (with nearly 10TB of their brethren) and start anew with a clean photo

Introducing The Finger Wag

Finger Wag

For as long as I can remember, my favorite TV shows have been in two genres:

1) Infomercials 2) Televangelism

To me, these are the television equivalent of train wrecks. They are deeply troubling, and I know it is so very, very wrong to stare at them, but I just can’t help it.

In addition to these programs, in the last few years, I have found yet another guilty vice. That vice is the comment section of mainstream news websites.

Reading the comments attached to mainstream news articles is like sitting in the zoo and watching monkeys fling shit at
