Agree 100% but I also reserve a little eyeroll at the editorial director of The Stranger making such a big critique of snark. I mean, really...
May 18 Jubilation T. Cornball commented on Get Over It: Fleet Foxes Are a Great Band.
I would put Third of May / Ōdaigahara right up there with any of the Beach Boys or Beatles epic orchestral songs. When I heard it for the first time on KEXP a couple months ago, I nearly sank to my knees in praise. They are a mighty, mighty band.
May 12 Jubilation T. Cornball commented on Jenny Durkan Launches Cookie-Cutter Mayoral Campaign.
@11 - right ON! I predicted Heidi would write this column and she didn't let me down. Jenny is a powerful woman - gay woman - who we are super lucky to have in the race.

She has more movements than an incontinence club. Meh.
May 8 Jubilation T. Cornball commented on Guest Editorial: To Stop the Keystone XL Pipeline, We Need To Stop The Flow of Dollars.
When O'Brien puts pen to paper and calls out actual solutions to the homeless people literally dying on the streets of his district, maybe I'll read it. It's easy to stomp one's feet about an issue far away but attending to local issues -- from potholes to gun violence to opiate-driven crime and homelessness. These are what I voted for him to address and since he cannot effectively do so, he will not get my vote in the future.

I enjoy voting in polls regarding matters about which I am profoundly uninformed. And I think i did a damn good job at this one.
May 8 Jubilation T. Cornball commented on After Murray Promises Scarecrow Video $50,000, Scarecrow Told It's Not Getting That Money.
@14 - Read my comment. I said move Scarecrow to a newly built retail space (you know, the ones that sit empty for months/years with "For Lease" signs in the windows?) and move the homeless into Scarecrow. Every business that goes under during our current homeless emergency should first be looked at as a possible shelter. We can get college kids and un/under-employed people to do the demo/conversion buildout. All hands on deck. If we need to raise taxes to buy all these buildings, open the floodgates. This is an emergency and everyione needs housing - not VHR tapes.

Let Scaregrow relocate to a new build retail space and make their old building a homeless shelter. RVs can park in the lot. It's a transit-heavy and service-adjacent location. If you think we need a video rental store more than housing for the poor, you're gross.
May 2 Jubilation T. Cornball commented on The Crack Epidemic That Once Ravaged Black Neighborhoods Didn't Get the Same Sympathy as Today's Opioid Epidemic.
Not disputing the author's point at all but has anyone additionally thought about the fact that crack heads are annoying as fuck and junkies just quietly zonk out all day?
