Veggie Pizza, You'll Have To Do...

Ok, so it hasn't been that hard these first couple of weeks. I set out this month to drop the meat from my diet and I feel pretty great. Turns out, I love eating for the sake of filling bored time. When my go to options are limited, I just don't eat as much... Every time I'm feeling casually hungry...

Holy Crap, OK Go Did It Again

How did no one barf while making this zero-g video? I think the lads from OK Go typecasted themselves into "oh that band that makes awesome videos", but to be fair, they've consistently made exciting music that is fun to see live. Still though, their videos are incredible! The singer, Damian, once...

The Perfect Valentine's Weekend Plan

The Pacific Northwest Ballet made a boring story I know from school into something beautiful. Ok, so Romeo and Juliet is not boring, I just have lame memories of being forced to read early-modern English about characters that I couldn't understand. Then there was that movie with Leo and Claire *,...

So, You're In Seattle... Andrew Ginn

Before moving to Seattle, I had this idea of what a person from the Pacific Northwest Would be like - gone the ways of the wild west that I had grown up with; present, people who were a little more connected to an earth that would more easily host human life. Because of the abundance of life in the...

At 51 Lance Mountain Might Be Doing His Best Skating Ever

Lance mountain was always a pro skater I admired. More for his silly antics than his astounding ability to push the limits of what was possible. He was pretty much the comic relief of the skate world. However, he consistently placed top ten in contests so he’s no slouch either. He wasn’t known for...

Lost Red Hot Chili Peppers Song Found

If the Red Hot Chili Peppers ever had to lose a member like John Frusciante, they found the right dude to replace him in Dave Navarro. One Hot Minute kept the Peppers relevant to high school kids and beyond - I remember because it was me. That four-ish year stretch in the mid-90's gave us my...

Help Me Survive Vegetarianism

I'm so hungry, that penguin looks tasty... *UPDATE* The samples at Costco sure are less fun when you can't eat meat... I don't care for New Year's resolutions. I usually scoff at them cynically from afar, mocking people for having hope. For 2016 I'm trying something new: I'm trying to drop the...

The 5 Coolest Places to Shop in Ballard

Because who knows Ballard better than I do? Well, probably a lot of people. After living on Ballard Ave. for a year and in the neighborhood itself for a few more years... I think I've got a pretty good idea. I love all the local shops and small businesses, the brick buildings, the charm! Ballard is...

So, You're In Seattle... Jim Petosa

As the creep of outside influence washes over Seattle like that one wave that rushes up the beach faster than you thought, the identity of the area is becoming less remotely PNW and more affected by the outside national and global forces at play. It's super cool to be able to able to find the gems...

I Remember The Challenger Explosion

In 1986, I was a tiny child - only 5 years old in Albuquerque, NM - when space travel took over my squishy little brain. I don't know why my mother was with me at the time, but we were at the cute little preschool/kindergarten that my family dropped me off at every morning. Lots of parents were...
