Seattle Space Needle Reflection at Night

Summer in the City

 

 

“They aren’t growing up with a back yarrrd! Won’t they miss not having a back yarrrrd?”

Nope.

They have one.

As far as my kids are concerned, Lake Union is their personal over-sized swimming pool, complete with a diving board shaped like a bridge. Not to mention, a lawn sprinkler on crack.

On a different note … it’s a shame, but ever since this incident, I’ve been paranoid to take photographs with kids in them. I guess that’s the whole point, though. Fear.

Stay scared, everyone. Your country depends on it.

You Might Be From The Suburbs …

 

Seattle. A city comprised of 600,000 transplanted suburbanites. More passive-aggressive notes per square mile than all other cities in the USA combined.

I encountered the above notes today while walking on the same block. The same block!

*sigh*

It looks like it’s time for another installment of “Seattle Rex’s Suburbanite Education Series”. This one will be brief.

Dear Neighbors from Outer Culdesacia, I have a few tips to make your staycation more enjoyable, not just for yourself, but for everyone.

One note is passive-aggressive. Two notes is obsessive-compulsive. That was a comment, not a tip. Here

Dancin’ Fools

Dancing Fools

While sorting through my photos this evening, I was reminded of a couple of guys who stole the show last weekend at the Bite of Seattle.

During one band’s set, two guys from the audience had proceeded to, uh, dance.

While they were obviously being goofy, they actually had talent. For instance, the guy in the white did a dive, transitioned into a breakdance two-step, then did a few baby swipes before getting back up and spazzing out. The guy in blue, well, the guy in blue reminded me of who Flava Flav would be were he white.

Rainbow Over West Seattle

Legend has it that at the end of a rainbow sits a pot of gold with enough of the precious metal to spring a murderous white girl from an Italian prison as her less wealthy co-conspirator rots in jail while said white girl enjoys the support of the supposedly-liberal Seattle establishment despite the fact that the first thing she did when confronted by authorities was throw a black guy under the bus like the Grand Fucking Wizard of the KKK proving once again that white rich and female still trumps negro every goddamn time regardless of the pee cee

Dear Women of Seattle, No Really!

Not long ago I wrote about my experiences with the pathologically narcissistic women of the Pacific Northwest. I took a little heat, but I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again … I’d rather be right than popular. And I am.

Case in point …

Yesterday, I stopped at La Parisienne in Belltown to get some things to take home, and while waiting, I decided to get a storefront shot for a later review. Here it is:

Alright, it’s nothing special, but it’s my picture and I’m happy with it.

As I’m setting up, not even in shooting

Scenes from the 2014 Bite of Seattle

Dancing Man/Woman

The 2014 Bite of Seattle is upon us, and yesterday, we walked over to the festivities to check it out.

It was crowded, a little too crowded at times, but fun nonetheless. I ate more stuff than I care to remember, about twenty percent of which was actually edible.

The real draw, as usual, was the music, which, although I never happened to be present when the band names were announced, was really good.

Fortunately, the temperatures cooled off a bit, sparing me from both food poisoning and a nose full of B.O. Fine, I wasn’t really “spared” from either,

The Least Shocking News Ever Reported

Climate Change Proponents Use More Electricity

Remember, you heard it here first.

And second.

And third.

And a bunch of other times too.

As a lifelong student of human psychology, I’ve always been fascinated with the way that people justify hypocrisy to themselves. The conclusion I’ve reached is that people know they’re full of shit, they just generally don’t care.

Everybody wrings their hands about Global Warming, but they do so purely for their own self-interest, not because they give a damn about the planet or anyone on it. They would just as vocally ridicule Global Warming if they thought for a microsecond that it
