Jun 20, 2013 Michael H. commented on The Amazing & Heartbreaking John Grant Plays at Barboza Tonight.
The only time I saw a show at Barboza, it was for a band, La Sera, that relies very much on its lead vocals. The vocals were completely inaudible. The sound guy claimed that he couldn't do anything about it due to the acoustics of the room. Was this true or was he just incompetent? Has anyone seen any good vocal-driven performances at Barboza?

Well, he didn't say that there is no sexism, just that it's worst in New York City theater. Why that is relevant, I have no idea.

So sorry to see Nook go. That place was awesome. The owners were probably exhausted with all the work--it was usually just the two of them.

People often accuse online dating services of behaving unethically and using fake profiles. Tinder actually admits that they do this.

Must spell "Janeane Garofalo" correctly to win.

Here's an article about this story in Stars and Stripes:


"""[Esquire reporter Bronstein] said there wasn’t space in the article to explain that the former SEAL’s lack of healthcare was driven by an ignorance of the benefits to which he is entitled.

“That’s a different story,” Bronstein said in a phone interview with Stars and Stripes about what he omitted from the article."""

That different story would have some credibility with me. It was a LONG article too, there's no way there wasn't room to put in a sentence about how he is entitled to some care.

"Miaomiao" is one of the latest incarnations of a frequent commenter (and name-changer) on the blog. She may have picked the name because someone else recently said she had cat food for brains. She has already changed her name to yumyum, but it's pretty easy to recognize her comments.
Jan 12, 2013 Michael H. commented on A Photojourney: Nine Stories Underground, in the University District Station.
These are great pictures. I believe the official name for this station is "University of Washington Station." U-District would probably be a better name for the forthcoming Brooklyn station, which is present in the commercial core of the U-District rather than right by Husky Stadium.

I didn't get my presidential election news from the Seattle Times.
