Are you sure you weren't sitting next to the 2008 Seattle Mariners?

David, Oh, had I only known... I'm sure I would have given my seat up to you. (And not have lost those three hours which I will now never ever have back again.)

I'm actually really sorry I missed it. It sounds like an important night in Seattle postmodernism.

Speaking of surreal, that was one very and very red carpet laid out at McCaw Hall.

David, I have a few extra jars of Fennel Salt if you want one...

are you serious? you couldn't find a seat so you left? i must've gotten in line at around 6:45 and found seats easily. the hollywood shit in the movie was pretty lame near the beginning, but the violence was really well done and all the stuff with the actual riots pretty much made me forget about some of the cheesy dialogue.

it was much better than i expected it to be

I guess I shouldn't be, but I'm always amazed at how many people will fork over $50-$200 for some glitzy event yet never support local regular events. Oh well.

And I had two spare VIP seating tickets ... that section was fairly empty, as most of us wanted to sit nearer to the stage ... next time ask, I hardly ever use them.

My guess is he was wearing some kind of musk.

@6 is right - the ultra-critical might not like it, but I thought it was a good film, and other than the weak parts with Charlize Theron (memo - don't cast people you sleep with) a fairly decent attempt at representing what happened.

But somebody tell me where the protesters shop ... talk about your fancy dressers ...

I'll bite, Will, speaking of just asking:

Will you give me $9000? I have a little pile of bills I really need to deal with. Better sooner than later, what with finance charges and such.

Let's do this!

Sorry, I'm not a protester, so I don't have $9000 lying around to buy sweaters with.
