commented on Seattle City Council Repeals Its Ordinance Regulating Rideshare Companies Like UberX and Lyft
the Yellow Cab app has actually been serving me quite well lately. I even had a fairly long conversation with one of the alleged "smelly immigrants who can't speak English" about how much I prefer it to calling dispatch, being on hold for ten minutes, and then dealing with some rude asshole telling me my cab was 30 minutes away. the driver asked if the GPS locator showing how far away the cab was worked properly; it did.
basically people on both sides of this issue need to chill the fuck out. I can't imagine using Uber or Lyft ever (I always carry cash), but I'm glad that their presence is causing the old school cab companies to make a few much-needed changes.

since when has three people been "a room full of" anything? are they in a closet? were you there and know for a fact what each and every person in the room looked like and was interested in? I have it on good authority that the rest of the people in this bar were Mariners fans in Kirkland jeans and were in line to sing Neil Diamond. you, sir, don't have shit.
commented on What Is the MOST You've Paid for a Record?
I think I paid about $70 for Swans' "Public Castration Is A Good Idea". Since their originals usually go for north of $100 I think it was a good deal. Not as good as when I found their first LP in the used bin of the Ave Tower Records for $10, but I digress. The creeping fear of being one decent paycheck away from blowing a couple hundred dollars on a single record off Discogs is very, very real.
