Yeah, it's a copy of that.

Hm, maybe I'm just off my game this afternoon...
Apr 22 Jude Fawley commented on Polaris, the Band Time (Nearly) Forgot Plays the Crocodile Tonight.
Oh yeah... I watched that show. Have not thought about it since something like 1994 but I recognized the kids when I googled them. Can't recall the band or the songs but they'd probably be familiar if I heard them. File this along with Tales of the Gold Monkey and Out of Control, under "TV shows that I know I watched and don't remember anything about, that must have Influenced me in some strange and ineffable way"

I gave my cat some Whiskas, there was glass mixed in, she ate it and died. #whiskaskilledmycat
Apr 17 Jude Fawley commented on Sawant Campaign Avoided Payroll Taxes by Paying Consultants as Contractors.
I agree with others saying that paying consultants as independent contractors is standard, and not inherently shitty.

It matters a lot how much they got paid. Were they getting $15/hour flat rate, before taxes and expenses? Or $50/hour? I've worked as a consultant and the standard practice is to expect to get paid more per hour than a salaried staff person, understanding that that was the exchange for a loss in benefits. I expense my home office, travel time, and all other things, and paid SE taxes of about 12% on the net profit. So if they were paid $15 hourly, then yes, this is a problem. If they were paid $50 hourly, then it is not a problem.

The question of city business licenses is a totally different topic. It's the contractor's job to figure that out, and pay B&O taxes.

Catalina, I'm surprised... isn't it considered gauche to criticize someone based on their appearance?
Apr 7 Jude Fawley commented on Restaurant Servers Say Eliminating Tips May Hurt Wait Service.
I am so totally okay with restaurant service going down because of this. Maybe it's because I'm a parent and don't have time to eat out a lot.. Maybe it's because I'm Mustacian and don't feel the need to eat out a lot... But I just don't care that much about restaurant service in the grand scheme of things. I feel for the waiters - they've gotten used to something that may change, but I just don't think they are inherently entitled to an unusually high wage compared to workers in other fields.

"What the fuck happened to you?" This question could equally be asked of Slog.
Mar 30 Jude Fawley commented on Ivar’s Salmon House Is Going Tipless.
I always tip in a socially appropriate way (15-20%), even as I feel that the system does not make any sense. So I think it would be a huge and unexpected side-benefit of the 5Now campaign if this model (of Ivar's) took hold the tipping system was generally phased out in Seattle. It just doesn't make sense.

(Didn't mean that in a negative way)
