It is all the more disappointing because at least one person whose opinion I respect, Dan Savage, who had Swartzman on the Lovecast this week, thought that the movie had some smart things to say about adult sexuality. There is no mention of the dialog and dynamics that takes place between white people who want to fuck each other in this review. I think that at least some of us wold be interested in that.

That really sucks.
Love that guy... a little less right now.

Seems like you're not trying very hard to wrap up SIFF.

Are you feeling alright Charles?

Cue the Sanctimony Squad!

Your comment wouldn't sound so tone deaf if that isn't exactly what SubPop was doing... playing the sanctimony squad.

One insular group of people trying to take down another group of insular people; making fun of how narrow minded and homogenous they are by making a video parody that is pretty narrow minded and homogenous.

Wow, Seattle is the whitest place on earth. Thanks SubPop. My Idaho friends and i will all feel safe and Cosmopolitan.

We'll be right there.
Mar 26 jnonymous commented on I Was a Teenage Marilyn Manson Fan.
This was great Emily. Sincerity suits you.
I am going to try and one up you however. I admire Marilyn Manson for all the same reasons you do - The aesthetic dedication to character, the counterpoise of his spoken personality, the way he brings Alice Cooper levels of shock and pop. But I never ever listened or would listen to his music intentionally (except maybe someday Sweet Dreams (are made of this), which is pretty awesome).

He is a musician so cool I love him despite his music.

Wowza. Is it creepy to cat-call a cartoon character? I'm confused flustered.

Charles, I think I may have lived there also. Were the landlords Dick and Nancy? Was it 1712?

Feb 27 jnonymous commented on How Central District Activists Feel About Uncle Ike's These Days.
“Putting a weed store on 23rd & Union is problematic because the murder of Troy Hackett happened in the parking lot next door to the church,” Flores continued. “[Degene and Troy] provided young people with hot meals, clothes and shelter, because they were responsible business owners who cared about the community. I think the question we should all be asking ourselves is, what would Degene and Troy want on that corner?”


Selling legal weed is not tearing apart black families. And It is a total fabrication to suggest that business in that area are all involved in community service.

What does this even mean?

Part of my problem is all the strange rhetoric around honoring the community. Listen to this from youmustlearnL
In areas where the owners of the land and wealth actually live in the community, there is much more care taken to recognize and dialogue with the community.

Aside from the barber shop are any of the existing business owners in dialogue with the community?

Much of this comes off as petulant whining and it isn't honoring the community at all. Preserving an abandoned bank building for nostalgic purposes? Really?

By all means lets figure out a way to encourage small local business, discourage monolithic architecture but we need stronger voices saying things that make sense to the actual community. Not nostalgia for a failed commercial zone, wherein you paint a gas station as a cultural touchstone. It is insulting.

@11 I won't say that Steely Dan can't jam my face off. I'll concede that point.
However, Elvis is 20 kinds of compelling; bland isn't in the man's vocabulary even if Jamming isn't his thing.
