commented on Letter to the Editor: Please Don't Come to Spokane
First item in The Inlander'
s version of SLOG's version of "The Morning News:
The View from the Westside
The Stranger sent a team of writers to Spokane to tell its Seattle readers something that many of us here already know: Spokane, contrary to some popular opinion, is OK. Our literary scene is "blooming," our record store scene is "booming," our food scene is growing, and a city councilwoman doubles as "The Weed Queen." There's also this hard-hitting interview in which Ijeoma Oluo, a black woman, interviews former Inlander columnist Rachel Dolezal, a white woman who identifies as black. Give it a read.
commented on Why Should I Give a Fuck About Giorgio Moroder?
It's only been a few years since Giorgio Moroder Presents Metropolis
became available again, after decades of being mostly unseen due to music licensing issues:
In 1984, Academy Award-winning composer Giorgio Moroder (Midnight Express, Flashdance), introduced Fritz Lang's science fiction epic Metropolis to a new generation of moviegoers. Working in collaboration with film archives around the world, he supervised a special reconstruction of the film, with color tinting, fewer intertitles, and newly restored footage. A pioneer in the field of digital music, Moroder backed this special edition with a throbbing new score, punctuated with pop songs from some of the biggest stars of the early MTV era: Freddie Mercury, Pat Benatar, Adam Ant, Bonnie Tyler, Loverboy, and others. Unavailable on home video for more than two decades, Kino Classics is now proud to revive the 1984 edition of Metropolis, an historic achievement in film restoration, and a dramatic vehicle for the visionary music of Giorgio Moroder. Rather than substitute digitally enhanced footage from one of the restorations that have occurred in the 27 years since the release of Moroder's Metropolis, Kino Classics has chosen to present the film exactly as it appeared in 1984, mastered from an archival 35mm print.

@2 Since we're talking about centenarians with local connections and outdoor sports: You'd think the passing of 107-year-old REI founder Mary Anderson might have merited a mention on SLOG.

I challenge anyone to follow the Open City category link above the title, scroll through, and make any sense of it. What does this piece have in common with "How to Get Support if You're the Victim of a Hate Crime" or a Teatro ZinZanni review?

How do I get him to loosen up and feel more comfortable about talking to me so that we can eventually progress to some new experiences?
Maybe get some edibles and sparkling wine?
