Bring back Tower Books! Easy Street was just a more recent interloper on the Lower Queen Anne of my childhood.
Dec 3, 2012 SteveM commented on Any Other Seattle Venues Offering Free Wedding Ceremonies on December 9?.
The Sanctuary at Admiral will host weddings for 20 couples and the last the West Seattle Blog updated they still have spots open. I don't know for sure if it's free for the couples but it sounds like it is.

What's a "gocery store"?
Apr 24, 2012 SteveM commented on Citizens of Seattle, Here Is your 2012 Seattle International Film Festival Trailer.
If they play this one-minute (!) trailer before every film, by the fifth screening of SIFF it will feel like five minutes long. Every year I complain about the pre-show trailers and they keep making more and more of them. Ugh.

The Cain party is just suspended. It hasn't ended.
Oct 24, 2011 SteveM commented on A Minute-By-Minute Recap of This Morning's Viaduct-Less West Seattle Commute.
It would be a better test if you commuted sometime between 7:30 and 8:30 because on a regular day, the West Seattle Bridge isn't bad at all at 8:30 a.m. And today it seems that more people left early so it was pretty quiet after 8.
Sep 26, 2011 SteveM commented on Bullying Gays: For God's Sake.
The good news out of this is the outpouring of support from the neighborhood. I live here in West Seattle, and it definitely has pockets of intolerance, but this is encouraging.

That's Green Lake.
Jun 10, 2011 SteveM commented on Can We Talk About SIFF?.
I saw the same City Arts Magazine ad twice before a movie this year, although at least the ad is better than the crappy ones in years past. They have waaay too many SIFF ads, and they never change. I'm only seeing 10 movies this year, but I'll see the same ads 10 times (or 11 if they repeat them like they did on Wednesday). I can't imagine how awful it must be for a Passhole.
I agree that earlier would be better, although it worked out well for me this year with an early May vacation. Another thing to do is to stop scheduling so many screenings with 4-4:30 weekday start times. Only people who can take off work can see those screenings and I'm always bummed out that there's a movie I want to see but I can't because of when I get off work.
