Another trek up Mt. Si

Taking advantage of the gorgeous weather this weekend, some friends, Darren and Nora, and I decided to tackle the hike up Mt. Si. I’d been up once before, almost exactly 3 years ago. Has it really been that long!? Time really does fly. This time up, it took about 2 1/2 hours to make the […]

Sigur Ros in Concert

Last Wednesday was the Sigur Ros concert at Benaroya Hall in downtown Seattle. Being that they’re one of my favorite bands, I’d tried getting tickets weeks ago, but it had been sold out since the first day tickets went on sale. Thanks to the good folk at Ticketmaster, there were no other options for finding […]

In addition to the acronyms, and […]

Changing the Film Heroes we Love

Two new trailers hit the internet yesterday, one for Superman Returns, and the other for the new James Bond, Casino Royale. One of these looks, um… super, and the other looks like crap. I was a little skeptical when the first Superman trailer showed up. The footage looked great, but I really wanted to hear […]

What makes a corporation (or non-profit) tick?

Over the weekend I watched the excellent documentary, The Corporation. It did a great job of covering everything from, “What is a corporation?” to the political issues, environmental impacts, sweatshops and some chilling case-studies on press cover-ups and controversy, such as bovine growth hormone. It never felt like they were trying to tackle too much, […]
