I love Divine, but the addition so close to Betty will make the wall too crowded.

The artist and homeowner need a better appreciation of negative space.

Hey Charles, I'm sorry you had a hard time hailing a cab in Vancouver. If it makes you feel better (and I know it probably doesn't), the cab drivers in Vancouver drive like bats out of hell anyway. I've had safer experiences with tuk tuk drivers in Asia.

Every time I hear someone complain about Uber or Lyft, I plug Flywheel as an alternative. It really is a lot better. Like Uber or Lyft, Flywheel is a hailing app (so the driver can't see the color of your skin) that you can use to pay for your trip. Unlike Uber or Lyft, it uses actual cab drivers, who are all vetted, licensed and insured. Plus, there is no surge pricing.

Unfortunately, Flywheel isn't in Vancouver. But I use it in Seattle all the time.

Who is going to run against Murray? He's already got most of the Council backing him. His fundraising is already in full swing. I can't imagine anyone who would take him on. The guy has a lock on money and endorsements.

O'Brien? Don't make me laugh. Sawant?

What do all the male friends and associates of Hickey think and feel, now that he's been exposed? What are they doing differently, now?

You work at the Stranger, Ansel. Why don't you ask them?
Aug 19 kitschnsync commented on What's So Funny About the Naked Trump Statue?.
Thanks for this, Rich. There is a definitely hypocrisy on display here; when we vilify body shaming of people we like but celebrate it when it's someone we don't like (see @7, shaming of Chris Christie, etc), we are abandoning our own principles.

It will be interesting to see how people rationalize their support for the Trump statues if/when naked Clinton statues appear.
Aug 19 kitschnsync commented on The Morning News:Trump Campaign Chairman Paul Manafort Resigns, Judge to Those Who Lost Lives and Homes in Oso Mudslide: It's Your Fault.
Wow. That's some Grade A assholery in the Oso item.

Oso is hardly in the middle of nowhere; it is ten minutes away from Arlington, a community that is over a hundred years old. One hundred years ago, most of Western Washington was "no place for a home" by Mudede standards in 2016... But there were timber jobs and a railroad in that area. You know, they stuff that built civilization in those times.

I'm not saying the judge was wrong in the ruling, just that Mudede is an insensitive prick. Congrats on another successful trolling attempt, Charles.
Aug 18 kitschnsync commented on Who's Leading Jill Stein In Texas Polls? Deez Nuts..
Who cares about Jill Stein? Dan Savage's criticism of her and her supporters seems petty. They don't matter.

The bigger and better story out of Texas is that Trump is turning the state purple.

LOL @ 5.

Good stuff, Rich! (But you should make Keck buy you a mic, the audio is not so good.)

If you are in your early 30s and you are seriously dating someone who is still in college (and presumably 18-22ish), you don't have your shit together.
