commented on Unraveling a Mystery in Storage at the Seattle Art Museum
this is what I like about random archaeological objects. Imagining the history of the person who makes those delicate glass vessels [roman?] in that one case at SAM [the objects are insanely hot by themselves BTW]. Or my first love in that museum: those little wear polished, hand carved african stools; where they pick out the perfect root/branch but dont really alter much. Truth is; I'm not very turned on by the description of this needlework [as an object] I just feel sorry for the victims of progress and civilization.

I also forgot to congratulate you heroes for doing the heavy lifting re: indigenous peoples day. You guys realize that there are pretty much just as many indians here as there were when we showed up on Alki point, right? [If you count our indigenous friends visiting from south of the border than the numbers are far higher] So....Why aren't we all moving back to northern Europe? I'm serious. Oh yeah; your all frauds.

you might as well get on board with the next revelation as it comes full circle. Everyone is nomadic/homeless; all the best real estate and architecture is re-wilded and made public. The city secedes, is walled off and made totally self sustainable with a 15 hr workweek. Eventually everything starts to revert back to looking and smelling like the pike place market. Anti-globalism.
commented on How to Adjust to Multicultural Seattle if You're from a Small Town
BS; if we decentralized the corporate state groups would become more segregated and self-sufficient [like chinatown] and the resulting cultural flavor would be far superior to the encroaching mono-goo of globalism that the centrist, establishment surrenders to. So yeah kids, those tea party types may be racist assholes but sometimes you just gotta hold your nose and take your medicine. The cowardly simpletons at the stranger are smart enough to know i'm right about the benefits of the libertarian monkey wrench but they're afraid to pipe up. Job security.
