Seattle Space Needle Reflection at Night

Mudhoney at Neumos

Mudhoney at Neumos

Last night, hipsters stood stoically, pointing gently above the stage, careful not to spill their PBR’s, while across town, their fathers were stage-diving and crowd-surfing like twenty-somethings. Such is the state of affairs in 2013 Seattle.

What, exactly, got the Gen Xers so riled up last night?

I’m glad you asked.

You see, Seattle’s favorite sons, Mudhoney, once again took the stage … this time at Neumos … and they spent nearly two hours screaming through one of their best sets I’ve personally witnessed in damn near a decade. It was as if Mark finally

What’s Long and Hard and Filled With Seamen?

Mt. Rainier and a Submarine

On my way to work yesterday, I looked out the window and spotted what looked like the ugliest whale I’d ever seen.

How about Destiny’s Child? They seemed pretty dominating to me. I once saw a video where they were wearing short-shorts and walking these big doberman pinschers, and I gotta admit, I was a little intimidated. My wiener moved, but I was still kinda scared. So scared that I

Sneak Peak

Washington State Ferry and Mount Rainier

The mountain was out for the first time in a long time this past week.

I was walking to the galley a few days ago when I just happened to look out the window and catch this scene. I grabbed my camera, lined up the shot, and snapped this photo without so much as breaking stride.

It’s a little crooked, but fortunately, there’s no such thing as a bad picture of Rainier.
