Kalakalot is thinking about what's for lunch and trying not to hum that song that's going through her head.

Long Beard Guy is the best. I like to think that he plays in a ZZ Top cover band on the side.
Apr 12 Kalakalot commented on How Seattle Gave Up on Busing and Allowed Its Public Schools to Become Alarmingly Resegregated.
Another beneficiary of Seattle Public Schools busing here. I moved to Seattle from an even whiter place (Olympia) in 11th grade. I wanted to go to Garfield because of the music program, and attending a diverse high school was probably the single most formative experience of this white girl's adolescence. If I hadn't gone to an integrated school in a historically black neighborhood, I probably wouldn't know what it feels like to be the only person of your race on a bus, or in a store, or in a restaurant. I wouldn't have gone to class with a guy who lived a in waterfront mansion and a guy who lived in a van. I wouldn't have seen how the local cops always seemed to find a reason to hassle the black kids but left the white and Asian kids alone. I'm a better person for it.

I understand that doling out a few hundred bucks for insurance every year is tough when you're struggling to make a living as a musician, I really do ... I didn't have insurance on my instrument until fairly recently (which is nuts, because there's no way I could have replaced it had anything happened to it). But come on. You're a musician, your instruments and equipment are your livelihood. You need to insure that shit. Do it. It may not even be as expensive as you think (I pay Clarion $200 a year for $10,000 of replacement coverage). Go on. Do it now.

I appreciate the attempt at a counterpoint -- vigorous debate being essential to healthy discourse and all -- but no. THE GUM WALL IS HORRIFYING AND IT MUST BE KILLED.

Thank you Brendan. This made my afternoon.
Jun 19, 2015 Kalakalot commented on Do You Know About the $5-and-Under Cheese Bins at QFC?.
I love the $5-and-under cheese bin, but I find it's not so much of a cost savings when you end up taking home five different kinds of cheese. But that's fine. I regret nothing.

I thought that mango ginger stilton would be amazing, but all I could really taste was sweet. Would have liked more stink and less mango (and I love mango!). Humbolt Fog is great. Truffle Tremor is really great. Sleeping Beauty is another favorite.

I have never understood what's up with Karl Ove Knausgaard, and perhaps I never will. But this cracked me up. Thanks!
