A place for Canadians.

Really grown on me, to the point where it's a daily listen. Their best album since I Can Hear the Heart....
Feb 1, 2013 Hutch commented on This Jim James Solo Record Will Be a Classic, at Least in My Record Collection.
I was a big MMJ fan for quite a few years but most of this is wanky garbage, similar to everything else the band put out after Z.
Jan 31, 2013 Hutch commented on The Rent Hike.
@73's got it. The attempts at mid-lease rent raises are pretty sketchy, but aside from that there's nothing "immoral" about fixing up decrepit old buildings and charging market rates. You're not entitled to live in below-market housing in an affluent part of town simply because it's always been that way.
Jan 16, 2013 Hutch commented on A Game of Drones.
I'm not opposed to doing both, Paul, and I appreciate your writing on this criminally overlooked topic. But folks like the ALCU and the well-intentioned proselytizers you cite in the article have been raising hell about this for most of Obama's first term and what have they gotten? A 10-person protest, Dennis Kucinich and, if they're lucky, a few softball questions for John Brennan before he's named CIA Director.
Jan 16, 2013 Hutch commented on A Game of Drones.
@4. Agreed. But imagine how the narrative of "third party voting is throwing your vote away" would change if a third party got 5-10 percent of Washington State's vote? It's not a perfect solution but when extra-judicial killings of American citizens and foreign innocents is the accepted standard of both American parties there's not much a guy like Paul can do.
Jan 16, 2013 Hutch commented on A Game of Drones.
Your "lesser of two evils" argument is a false dichotomy and self-fulfilling prophesy. You live in a solidly blue state that hasn't voted for a Republican president in nearly 20 years. There were several third party candidates you could have voted for that were outspoken about these issues. Take your pick - I went for Rocky Anderson and the Justice Party. Sure it's a symbolic vote but it makes it a little bit easier to sleep at night knowing you're not giving a vote of confidence to morally reprehensible foreign policy.
Jan 10, 2013 Hutch commented on Duff McKagan's Tips for "How to Be a Man".
Can you imagine running a publication and having the thought "let's give the bassist of Guns N' Roses a weekly column" cross your mind?
Jan 9, 2013 Hutch commented on McGinn Brings Out His Base as He Launches Bid for Reelection.
He didn't just "fail to address" the culture at SPD - he passed on an opportunity to name a reformer to the chief position and has doubled down and defended them and the officer's guild during every effort at reform. He absolutely owns this issue and it's baffling that he still has support from minority groups that continue to see a disproportionate amount of use of force.
Jan 7, 2013 Hutch commented on Chuck Hagel?.
@1

You're mixing up "anti-Israel" with "daring to question the infallibility of every action by every Israeli government ever, no matter how detrimental to their own best interests and regional peace." Common mistake in our country.
Jan 7, 2013 Hutch commented on BOAT Is Releasing a New Album (and So Are Their Friends!).
Best dudes. Best band.
