Posted by on Thu, Jan 3, 2013 at 2:06 PM

I sorely regret, along with The Funhouse, what's happening to our city. Kudos, and a great big personal thank you, to every single one of the folks working on this Funhouse documentary. A must see:

Documentary Trailer features interviews with Brian Foss, Mark Ostler, Eric Bruckbauer, Jimmy Berg, Helen Halloran, Jonathan Zwickel, Jeff Albertson, Tony Fantozzi, Cody Creel and Bill Cerise-Bullock. "Dig Your Grave" included with permission from The Pharmacy. Photographs by Keith Johnson. Directed by Ryan Worsley, and produced by Debbie Porter.

I'm pretty sure it's the trailer that features those interviews, the film features a ton more interviews, bands, songs, photographers and people.

Reminds me of an article I 'read' in 2007 (!!!ahem, coughcoughparodycoughcough!!!):

'Renting Owl' Seen in Neighborhoods for First Time in 30 years:

March 23, 2007: A tiny bird so rare and unusual that its scientific name means "renting owl" has been spotted for the first time in north Seattle in 30 years, scientists and land use planners announced yesterday.
Conservationists working around recently converted condominiums in the Roosevelt South neighborhood got their first natural glimpse in 30 years of the long-whiskered owlet last month while working to demolish a privately-owned single family house.
The species wasn't even known to exist after 1976 when upzoning began in earnest, and since then the only known living renting owls have been those caught walking to and from Safeway at night.
"Seeing the long-whiskered owlet is a huge thrill," said David Fox of Asociacian Ecosistemas de Seattle Norte, who was part of the research team, in a press statement.
The American Rental Bird Conservancy, which partnered in the research, described the sighting as "a holy grail" of rental bird biology.
As few as 250 of the owlets are thought to rent in north Seattle, land use planners said, and the birds are as distinctive as they are rare.
With their diminutive size, bright orange eyes, and wild, wispy facial feathers, the dainty birds belong to their own genus, dubbed Rentoglaux, or "renting owl."
The owlets owe much of their survival to the remoteness of their dense rental habitat from such "cutting edge" areas like Fremont, or Madrona, the researchers said. But as condo conversions encroach on Seattle's northern rental units, the birds' future looks dimmer.
"Due to the rapid destruction of its rental and single-family habitat and its tiny range, it is inferred that the species is in serious decline," Fox said.
"Until recently, the owlets key habitat was completely underzoned."

@4 or you could have just said "I don't like gentrification."
