I have been asked more than once -- perhaps maybe even up to
three times possibly -- the question, "How do you find
such funny/weird/unusual/terrifying things at the thrift stores you
go to?" I always answer, "Honey/Baby/Sweetie/Your Honor, they find
me." Please to enjoy this lot of losers!!

Everybody does a preview post for festivals, but I like to do a post-view post as well, after my eyes have recovered from editing a prillion photos and I've had some time to reflect on the three days of the giant annual Seattle music and arts festival, Bumbershoot. I look forward… Read full post »
Well, kiddies, this is it: the final day of my 2014 coverage from Seattle's great urban arts and music festival, Bumbershoot!

Ya know, it's really fortunate I wasn't born two hundred years ago or something, because instead of taking a Saturday to make a music video with my daughter, she and I would probably bond by working together in ceaseless and grueling domestic toil! Bummer! But here we are, it's 2014, the… Read full post »
Back for more visual loveliness from Day Two of Seattle's annual music and arts mega-fest, Bumbershoot! The drizzle and grey from Day One had hit the road and this was a perfect Sunday to enjoy being on the Seattle Center grounds, listening to and photographing some truly great bands. If you… Read full post »
I'm delighted to once again bring you coverage from Bumbershoot Festival, a world-class festival that infuses the Seattle Center with incredible color, sounds, laughs, and creativity each and every Labor Day weekend.

A dual-state post of more musical mayhem from the past! Please
Tell it like it is? OK, THERE IS NO GOD!
Halloween idea: buy up a huge pile of these creepy knick-knacks from your local thrift store and pile them around your front door on October 31st. You will either delight trick-or-treaters or scar them for life. You're welcome in advance, and please to enjoy!!
A lovely day out yesterday with our visitors from Florida to a
couple of Seattle landmarks: the epicenter of all things goofy,
Archie McPhee, and
the very unique Gas
Works Park. Here are a few photos because, fun. Please to
Ah, we wait impatiently through the grey and gloomy fog and rain months for days like last Sunday in Seattle: a perfect summer afternoon with blue, sunny skies in a lush green city park, an ideal setting for Vibrations 2014.

Have you made a record yet? What?? Why not?!? 'CAUSE EVERYONE
ELSE HAS! Or at least you would surmise so by perusing the vinyl
bins at the thrift stores. Here are some examples of "everyone

After the clusterbang that will be climate change and nuclear holocaust and whatever else nasty we've chosen to inflict upon this fine Earth, all that will be left will be roaches, Rush Limbaugh, and massive piles of curios and knick-knacks.Of course, I won't be around to see this p…
Six things I've learned about people from rummaging through the
old record bins at thrift stores:
1. Neil Diamond and Barbra Streisand, people are dumping your entire recorded works in every thrift store I've been at all over the nation. Sorry.
2. Local religious records are not popular.
3. Nor are reco… Read full post »

Q: What is more fun than seeing a superb live triple bill at a sweaty Belltown club on a lovely July evening?
1. Staying at home and watching a rerun of "Dance Moms" while clucking your tongue.
2. Organizing your pencils and pens by height and color.
3. Drinking craft beer at the… Read full post »
