commented on Satan, Scarecrows, and Skin
Awesome list, Kelly O! Is "Aliens" not included because it's more of an action film? Because I remember pretty much screaming my head off, along with the rest of the audience, when that film came out. Also, I didn't sleep a wink the night I saw the 1978 version of "Invasion of the Body Snatchers." The final shot freaked me the hell out.

I agree, Megan - the Pagliaccio salad at Pagliacci is fantastic! I've been tempted to tell them that I have very specific food allergies and have to be very careful about what I ingest, in order to get them to reveal to me the ingredients list for their salad dressing. I want to make/eat it every day!
commented on Dear Elliott Bay Books: Please Be Open the Hours You're Open
Okay, correct me if I'm wrong, Christopher: You work at The Stranger, which is ONE BLOCK AWAY from Elliott Bay Book Company, and yet you couldn't get over to the store until three minutes before they closed? Sorry, but yes, that makes you sound rather assholey.
And all this whining about EBBC not selling used books: Last I checked, a couple of used book stores in the neighborhood went out of business recently, so maybe it's not a great business model, and maybe you should BUY YOUR USED BOOKS FROM TWICE SOLD TALES, to support our last surviving used book store on the Hill! It's a very simple equation: New books = Elliott Bay. Used books = Twice Sold Tales. Heaven forbid you should support TWO independent bookstores!

Theatre makes fun of rich people all the time - Why can't it do the same for poor people? Why can't theatre be an equal-opportunity offender?
