So, You're In Seattle... Andrew Ginn

Before moving to Seattle, I had this idea of what a person from the Pacific Northwest Would be like - gone the ways of the wild west that I had grown up with; present, people who were a little more connected to an earth that would more easily host human life. Because of the abundance of life in the...

At 51 Lance Mountain Might Be Doing His Best Skating Ever

Lance mountain was always a pro skater I admired. More for his silly antics than his astounding ability to push the limits of what was possible. He was pretty much the comic relief of the skate world. However, he consistently placed top ten in contests so he’s no slouch either. He wasn’t known for...

Lost Red Hot Chili Peppers Song Found

If the Red Hot Chili Peppers ever had to lose a member like John Frusciante, they found the right dude to replace him in Dave Navarro. One Hot Minute kept the Peppers relevant to high school kids and beyond - I remember because it was me. That four-ish year stretch in the mid-90's gave us my...

Help Me Survive Vegetarianism

I'm so hungry, that penguin looks tasty... *UPDATE* The samples at Costco sure are less fun when you can't eat meat... I don't care for New Year's resolutions. I usually scoff at them cynically from afar, mocking people for having hope. For 2016 I'm trying something new: I'm trying to drop the...

Because who knows Ballard better than I do? Well, probably a lot of people. After living on Ballard Ave. for a year and in the neighborhood itself for a few more years... I think I've got a pretty good idea. I love all the local shops and small businesses, the brick buildings, the charm! Ballard is...

So, You're In Seattle... Jim Petosa

As the creep of outside influence washes over Seattle like that one wave that rushes up the beach faster than you thought, the identity of the area is becoming less remotely PNW and more affected by the outside national and global forces at play. It's super cool to be able to able to find the gems...

I Remember The Challenger Explosion

In 1986, I was a tiny child - only 5 years old in Albuquerque, NM - when space travel took over my squishy little brain. I don't know why my mother was with me at the time, but we were at the cute little preschool/kindergarten that my family dropped me off at every morning. Lots of parents were...

DUDE, They're Gonna Start Making Time Machines Again!

Ever since the time traveling escapades of Doc Brown and Marty McFly began in the mid 80's, nerd culture continues to obsess over the gull-wing doored DeLorean. The ones we get our hands on can't go back or forward in time - I'm not even sure they can actually pull off the 88mph required - but they...

So, You're In Seattle... Jet City Saber Guild

Now that we've finally stopped seeing as many Star Wars product placements - really, Star Wars bottled water... - it's nice to get a chance to talk about it with people who aren't just caught up in the momentary hype of the newest, excellent film. Adrienne and Matt started the officially recognized...

Here's How To Get Out Your Seahawks Frustrations

I first met comedian Craig Gass when I drunkenly hit him with a rolled up #VedderCup banner in the seats of San Diego's Petco Park. My awesome friend Kool Keith says: "oh sh**, it's Craig Gass" "The comedian?" He followed us up the stairs and we became pals. Craig's a huge Seattle sports fan, and...
