I actually live in Olympia (about 100 km south). Seattle is funny… the Space Needle, Museum of Pop Culture, and Pike St Market are all cool. But it’s kind of hard to find the good stuff. Let me know and I’ll send you to the couple of gems I’ve found.

There’s a lot of really good music… but you have to know where to go. Any of the indie record shops up on Capitol Hill should be able to point you in the right direction. There are a lot of really good electronica bands if you’re into that. “Ruler” is the big local band on all the podcasts now.


You look like you need coffee.


I was listening to a Bloomberg podcast talking about the huge political tensions in Seattle right now with the proposed Head Tax etc.

The reporter was at a townhall style meeting in some suburb and she said the anger and vitriol was so real that she was almost worried the stage was going to get rushed and the city council members attacked.


Nah more like he has had one coffee too many !!


That’s the whole country right now, unfortunately. I don’t think people outside the US really understand how tense it is right now. We’re a powder keg. Somethings got to give. People walk around on edge all the time. It’s just too bad they don’t see that it’s manufactured. That they’re being manipulated by the media and politicians, all to sell more Toyotas and breakfast cereal or get reelected.

Seattle is kind a caricature of the problem with our country right now. You have to be a millionaire to live there. Because of extreme late-stage capitalism (e.g. Microsoft, Amazon, and Boeing) it’s very expensive to live there. So all of the lower wage service workers can’t afford to live there. But because of the far(ish) left political leanings of the region they’ve come up with some pretty draconian measures to try and correct it. It’s crazy.


Last night in Rome. Lovely city and beautiful food. Satisfied the history geek in me too lol
