@15 - We weren't trying to be a local landmark. We were just painting something we thought was cool on our house.
Jun 21 Baxter commented on On That Bettie Page Mural.
Hello! I am one of the Bettie Page house owners. First of all, thank you so much for this piece. It's been wonderful to have so much idealogical support. You stated many of my thoughts much better than I could under pressure during a TV interview. I've never been interviewed before and there are many sentiments I wish I could have expressed better.

Second, many very generous people have asked about donations to help with restoration. We really appreciate the offer and have been so moved by the outpouring of positivity we've received from the community. However, between our home insurance, the original artist, and volunteers, the cost of repair is within our means. In lieu of a donation to us, we ask that you please consider donating to the Rape, Abuse, & Incest National Network (RAINN), which is an excellent non-profit focused on supporting victims of sexual assault. To us, the so-called feminists who slut shamed Bettie are part of the problem of perpetuating rape culture. The idea that a woman shouldn't be allowed to express her sexuality without consequences is disgusting and incredibly damaging. donate.rainn.org

I tried to find a direct donation site for the victim of that awful case involving the asshole with the 80s movie villain name, but I couldn't locate one.

Thanks again for the support. As one of my friends put it, it just goes to show that for every sucky person out there, there are hundreds more who are good and kind.

So does one need to watch the rest of the show to understand this episode? Or can one enjoy it as a one-off?

They have handle-less paper bags at the Safeway on 75th NE in North Seattle as well. I always assumed it was because they were trying to get you to remember your cloth bags. It's not like those handles are very sturdy anyway. If you have any cans or bottles in your bag, they are pretty much useless.

It's not that it's too hot for TV so much as I just don't understand what is happening. What the fuck is with the giant bears and Miley's Odie tongue? I couldn't find anything sexual in that video at all. Just bewilderment.

Ah! The Gifting Island! I love that magical little spot.

You should check out the awesome documentary, "Busted Circuits and Ringing Ears" about Tad. It's excellent and gives the band its long overdue credit in the early Seattle scene.

Bravo on that headline.

Here's the thing: The one time I couldn't watch the show live, I didn't look at Slog, Twitter or FB until I got around to it because I KNEW people would be talking about it. If you are a regular slog reader and you get spoiled, that's on you.

That said, JINKX 4-EVER! Though Alaska is just as deserving as her for the crown, Jinkx is our home town girl and a genuine sweetheart to boot.
