The Best of Slog: The Transit Fight, Gay Farmers, and a Bad Excuse to Post a Katy Perry Video

Posted by on Fri, Apr 26, 2013 at 5:14 PM

Policing the Police Yields Mixed Results: Interim Police Chief Jim Pugel offered an unsolicited apology for a homeless-mocking video he made in the 1980s, and the federally appointed monitor of the Seattle Police Department says the SPD is resisting reform.

Transit Catfight! Ed Murray opposes sub-area equity for Sound Transit. Mike McGinn thinks that's—and I'm heavily paraphrasing, here—bullshit.

No Contract (Minor Contractual Obligations May Apply): Goldy breaks down the Washington AG's gutsy smackdown of T-Mobile's new ad strategy.

Cool Story, "Pastor" Mark: God's tool from Mars Hill "Church" shoots off his idiot mouth again about how much he hates women.

Thus Began the Gay Farming Movement: For a good time, call 360-786-7630. Ask them how they feel about this sentence: "Well, gay people can just grow their own food."

A Bookshelf Built for Two: Two Slog writers have upcoming books. Here's one. And here's another.

"Besides being a radionic psychotronic expert with Asberger's and an undying love of Tiffany...": This has to be the best qualifying clause beginning a sentence on Slog this week. This weeks' Slog Netflix Streaming Club is kind of mind-blowing.

I Will Miss the Erotic Han-Solo-in-Carbonite Sculptures: The Broadway Grill is closing.

Best Slog Headline of the Week: "Not With A Bang But A Side Order Of Cheese Sticks."

Lastly, our Patriotic Corporate Overlords have ensured that this song is going to be played a whole lot around Seattle in July:

Hmm. Never saw that video with the fireworks shooting out of her breasts before.

The SPD is resisting those in authority over them? They deserve to be beaten and pepper sprayed.

My phone doesn't play videos very much- so someone please tell me if, since that is Katie Perry, the fireworks are really shooting out of her boobies, as it appears in the preview frame.

Also, Dear The Stranger, please ask Mr. Savage for advice on how I can convince The Future Mrs. Dr. Awesome to wear a fireworks-shooting brassiere. Thank you.

@3,
Fireworks do indeed shoot straight out of Miss Perry's tits in the video.

That whole video was bizarre.

Can we call it Gay Gardens? I think that meme will pick up more speed with the homosexuals.

@4 No, in this one the fireworks come from her heart - between hre breasts. You are maybe thinking of the video for "California Girls", where the whipped cream does indeed shoot out of her breasts.

@6,
All I know is that when I was staring at her tits, I saw fireworks.

I like the remix of Fireworks that's on one of those cheezy Gay Pride Workout Albums on iTunes.
