Feb 15 blackhook commented on Why Do Spies Love Poison So Much?.
Kronsteen was killed via venom in From Russia With Love...not to mention, Rosa Kleb (Lotte Lenya!) nearly offed James Bond with her shoe blade poison...

Just like with "Flight of the Conchords", a lot of the subversive beauty of Callan Berry's work is in the background ...don't miss reading the posters on the wall ;)
Feb 9 blackhook commented on Victim of Shooting at UW Milo Yiannopoulos Protest Still in Serious Condition, Alleged Shooter Remains Uncharged.
Self defense my ass! ...yet another entitled extremist right-wing shooter. My take is this Neanderthal brought a gun because he was looking to stir up trouble. At the very least UW should expel him for creating an extreme danger on campus.

Speaking of juice-purveying interlopers, someone should re-open the Gravity Bar...
Feb 3 blackhook commented on RETRACTION: Milo Yiannopoulos Is Not a White Nationalist.
Rich, that is way more ink than Malicious Milo deserves. How about just ignoring him? He obviously thrives on the attention, on spewing outrageous statements & salivating for the response like the rabid squirrel he is.

Shame on you, extremist right-wing Port of Seattle 'leaders'!

All the praise is well deserved, really nice job Callan! We need your wacky brand of humor now more than ever, please keep up the great work!
Dec 8, 2016 blackhook commented on Prog-Rock Icon Greg Lake of King Crimson and Emerson, Lake & Palmer Has Died.
Thanks for the solo "Lucky Man" link, hadn't heard that b4. Really does highlight Lake's clarion-clear, gorgeous voice & beautiful acoustic guitar style. I love ELP's first album, incl The Barbarian that takes off from Bartok's piano piece Allegro Barbaro. Lake's stunning playing & singing on the lovely "From The Beginning" from Trilogy is another high point. Tarkus & Trilogy are both loaded with quality songs, and even the slightly outrageous arrangement of Pictures At An Exhibition—with vocals added—mostly works in a trippy, fun way (unlike Rick Wakeman's uninspired arrangement of a fragment of Brahm's 4th Symphony on Yes's otherwise stellar Fragile album). R.I.P. Greg Lake!
Nov 15, 2016 blackhook commented on RIP Mose Allison, One-of-a-Kind Jazz Pianist/Songwriter.
First saw Mose about 30 years ago at ChicagoFest on Navy Pier ...truly magical, I was hooked immediately. Last time was 5 years ago @ Jazz Alley, great show. Incredibly—even at age 84—he still remembered all of his wonderfully-oblique lyrics ...and he did do the classic Your Molecular Structure. R.I.P.!
Nov 8, 2016 blackhook commented on The U-District's Cafe Racer Is Raising Money to Keep Its Doors Open.
Not just "casual musicians" inhabit Café Racer ...much of the best improvised, experimental music in Seattle happens there on a regular basis. Racer Sessions—every Sunday night from 8-10—is a weekly curated set of jams that anyone is encouraged to sit in on ...and many of the best local players from experimental jazz to psychedelic synth mashups to alt-rock play their hearts out at Racer many nights of every week.
