commented on Here's What Macklemore Did on the VMAs Last Night
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis donated all the money from sales of the "Same Love" download to Approve Ref 74, from the day it was released (July 18, 2012), until The Heist came out on October 9.
Combined with sales of the limited 7", released through Sub Pop, this represented over $40k to Music for Marriage Equality, which was a part of Washington United for Marriage.
That they did this, well before any hint of the mega success they now have, is remarkable. They talk the talk, and walk the walk. Last night's performance and win was a true victory.

Do it, Grant. I just got back from 2 weeks in France and really wish I had boned up on the French I took many years ago. If you travel outside of Paris, which I absolutely recommend, you will be especially thankful.
commented on Just Another High: Spiritualized @ Neptune Theatre
I'm with you on the '90s shows being stellar, Segal, but MAN something about last night really clicked with me. It was my favorite Spiritualized show to date, even without the songs I REALLY wanted to hear.
Moments of absolutely shattering beauty onstage last night. I did not want it to end.

Had the chicken at a preview dinner, I am still thinking about it days later. It is fucking delicious. And, the cod! So good.
Le Pichet clocks in at $36, Ma'Ono sells their delectable bird for $39. A good quality chicken at the grocer will set you back $20 and it's raw! $40 for Matt's juicy yardbird is totally worth it.
