May 14 orino commented on New Trailer for ABC's The Muppets.
The Muppets are a Disney joint. ABC is a Disney joint. The only surprise is that a Muppets reboot took this long to happen.
Feb 16 orino commented on What TBS’s Sped-Up Seinfeld Reruns Tell Us About the Sorry State of America.
What? Back in the days when local TV stations showed syndicated off-network reruns, they'd cut out little bits and pieces, and even cut the credits short to squeeze in a commercial or two. Movies? Hacked to pieces. The commercial radio station where I worked in college played 45s at 47.5 rpm. Nothing new here.
Jan 30 orino commented on First Impressions of Seattle by Someone from Spokane.
Heidi, Seattle has always been as you describe. I was born in Seattle, and there was antipathy toward newcomers when I was in junior high school. This idea that Seattle is some kind of Nirvana/Brigadoon/whatever seems to have been the result of Seattle spiking Money Magazine's Best Place to Live spreadsheet in 1976. Seattle is an unremarkable city in a remarkable location. And Seattle has always wanted to be San Francisco. No mere mortal can afford to live there, either.
Jan 29 orino commented on Marshawn Lynch and The People Who Punish Him (Who Are Bad At Their Jobs).
However one may feel about it, every NFL player's contract requires making oneself available to the media, participating in certain events, and even wearing the prescribed color of shoes. If any of us blew the requirements of our jobs off we'd be fired. Mr Lynch just has to pay a fine, which is probably not a huge problem for him, since he gets paid more in a year than most people will in their entire lifetime.

Microsoft comes up with an even dumber idea than Google Glass! Microsoft is the new Kodak...
Oct 7, 2014 orino commented on As Ridership on Light Rail Grows, Citizens of This City Need to Improve Their Social Intelligence.
So many people on Link carry bags like the ones pictured because Link is a $2.4 billion airport shuttle.
Sep 17, 2014 orino commented on LA Police Now Have SPD's Former Drones, LA Residents Now Have Seattle's Former Problem.
The LAPD already use helicopters far more extensively than Seattle... drones don't have pilots, and could fly much lower, but I don't imagine they'll stay locked up for long.
Sep 5, 2014 orino commented on Pronto Cycle Share and How the Market Reproduces and Reinforces Seattle's Racial Map.
Maybe it's because only white people are interested?
Jul 15, 2014 orino commented on Microsoft Layoffs Happening Soon?.
When I was a permatemp there it seemed they had an awful lot of Assistant User Experience Managers and others whose jobs consisted entirely of attending meetings. They're the ones who should worry most...
Jul 14, 2014 orino commented on Is This the Crappiest Street Sign in Seattle?.
This one is so old, it was painted. By someone with a brush.
