Seattle's gum wall has been my favorite thing to show new visitors, it's such a weird and unique thing. Super gross, too, but that's part of its charm. And now 20 years' worth of gum has been removed, allegedly because it's eating away the brick. Dammit! Time to start a new one, I'd say. Seattle’s Pike... Continue Reading →
The gay population of Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood has declined dramatically in the past 10 years for various reasons. It's not the gay epicenter it once was, which makes a lot of us sad because it used to kinda be "our" place where we knew we could go into a bar and find like-minded people. Now it's home to...

I made this little graphic to demonstrate my confusion at the recent weather reports for Seattle. Sometimes they're a little off, but usually not this off!

And no matter how bumpy or jerky the ride might be, they'll insist on... Continue Reading →
We Seattleites will soon be able to opt-out of receiving the Yellow Pages. YES! It's about goddamn time, too -- personally, I haven't cracked a Yellow Pages since the mid-90's. The minute I see one on my doorstep, I walk right over and dump it into the recycling bin. It's obsolete and wasteful, and it needs to... Continue Reading →
Yesterday I found some photos from last year I had forgotten to put in my galleries. They're from a walk we took around Green Lake on a chilly winter day. It was bitterly cold but the late afternoon light was lovely, and a bizarre wedge-shaped cloudbank eventually overtook the sky. They're online now but here's one of... Continue Reading →
I just updated my long-running list of Annoying Busfolk, this time adding "The Bulldozer" based on someone I encountered this morning. This bitch was on a mission, and nothing could get in her way!
Sure, go right ahead and use that empty bus seat next to you for your giant ugly bag, lady. It's not like the bus gets crowded for the morning commute or anything. And besides, it's YOUR personal storage space, go ahead and spread your sizeable self out while you play Bejeweled 2 on your iPhone. No... Continue Reading →
Seattle was rocked by yesterday's announcement that lounging on railroad tracks for fun can get you smooshed by a train. Indeed, these are times of amazement and discovery! And just get a load of this brilliant quote: We've got different amusements, different types of things that, you know, that kind of satisfy us and amuse us. We... Continue Reading →
