I don't think US Bank reads the SLOG. I suggest you go over to the bank and demand to see the manager. It's cold, so don't forget to ware a ski mask.
Let us know how that works out.
Slingshots are only a few bucks at Fred Meyer. Make sure you're not leaning out or you'll be seen.
That new building is just... blech. I'm trying to decide whether to call it "the Black Hole" or "the Bruise."
"Eyes on the street": that's you.
The bright light complements the prison architecture. There's enough steel around the clock to support a machine gun.
What is a bank after all, but a prison for your money?
Seems like there should be some sort of complaint procedure for this through the City.
The light keeps my concentration away from the god awful building its attached too. And that is one UGLY building, so it requires a sign of signifigant watt-age. I vote for keeping the sign on.
I assume that the light and playlist are to discourage people from encamping before the warm glow of the ATMs. Probably best to apply aluminum foil to the windows and avoid the blight altogether.
On the ground floor of my building (NE 65th St and Ravenna Blvd. near Green Lake) there is a real estate office with a television in the window facing the street. The television plays a loop of footage of a guy walking through near by neighborhoods. The television is never off. Who is going to see it at 3:00am on a Tuesday morning and then decide to choose that office to view house listings?
What is the deal with buildings leaving their lights on all night? I remember a few years back when the west coast was having a power crisis and you could see downtown office buildings blazing away all night. Sure, I understand having some security lights and all, but WTF?
ah typical seattle passive-aggressiveness at its' finest: whining about something on the internet. Next time your car breaks down send an email to AAA and see how far that takes you.
