The Silent-Reading Party Is Tomorrow Night!

Posted by on Tue, Feb 4, 2014 at 12:05 PM


As you may have read on the Stranger Suggests page, the reading party is tomorrow night. Who's doing the music this time? The multi-instrumentalist Sam Anderson (of the band Hey Marseilles) and Katie Kate (a rapper who's a Stranger Genius Award finalist; she won't be rapping, though, she'll be playing piano). Both Sam and Katie played at the last reading party, but they were graciously filling in for someone at the last minute. Tomorrow, they'll be back, having had a month to prepare.

Plus, there'll be a special guest! I don't know how we got him, because he's been so incredibly busy lately... but Stranger news editor Dominic Holden will be joining us!!! He will just there and read silently to himself, like everyone else. Between Dominic being on the TV news last night for this story about the cop who got fired for abusing his authority after Dom filed a complaint about him and also Dominic's week of breaking news about the Neighbours arson suspect ahead of all other reporters (you caught that detail about the one-way plane ticket, right?)... between all that, I really don't know how we got him. Except maybe he needs a drink? Maybe this is the first time he's been able to contemplate just sitting around and reading while listening to soft music in... months?

Anyway, be there! Tomorrow night at the Fireside Room in the Sorrento. It starts at 6 pm, it's free, and it's all ages. A fuller description of the reading party is right here. Oh yeah, and I just read on Huffington Post that the reading party is the 33rd reason Seattle "wins at life," so there's that.

They also say that Mount Rainier is "always in view," so take their endorsement with a grain of salt.

Hmm. Posting the scheduled whereabouts of the guy whom a just-fired ex-sheriff's deputy with anger control problems might blame for his firing means I'm steering clear and just reading at the library instead.

When my son moved out we turned his bedroom into a library. With an incredibly comfortable rocking chair, a water feature and a candle/rock/sand garden. I don't have access to musicians, but I do have an ipod, so that works pretty well. Plus, no driving/parking/fighting traffic. So in honor of tomorrow's silent reading party, I'll go read in my library. With a nice glass of white wine. If Dom wants to come over, he's welcome to. I'll bring in a folding chair for him.

Wow, this article is officially on Holden's tip. He's SO BUSY ginning up ways to bitch and moan and generally blow the things that are important to him and a handful of people like him totally and completely out of proportion, while remaining silent/ignorant about everything else. Whew! Sounds tiring! Circumstantial evidence-publicizing and using one's paper as a bully pulpit - what a lot of hard, hard work.
It's fucking BULLSHIT, Stranger!

@4 - Aww looks like someone has a lot of free time now that he's unemployed.

@1 Mt. Rainier is always in view. We all know where it's at and when you look in that direction, even on a cloudy day, it's comforting to know it's still there. You and @4 have way too much time on your hands.
