In Culture News: Knights Who Say "Skee," ALL RISE, and #killallmen

Posted by , , and on Mon, Mar 24, 2014 at 5:33 PM

ALL RISE Rising: On the city block along Denny between Minor and Yale, where the Greyhound Bus station used to stand, Seattle City Light is prepping to build an electrical substation. For the next 14 months, the open lot will host a series of visual and performance events called ALL RISE, dealing with the past, present, and future of the Cascade neighborhood. The first is a scattering of 11 signs by Seattle poet Arne Pihl, including the words "THIS IS NOT A GENTLE POEM" mounted on 12-foot blocks that reference glacial change and social struggle. All events are free and will be announced shortly before they happen. Follow ALL RISE on Facebook and Twitter (#allriseseattle), or email. Web cameras are here and here.


Waiting for To Go... Next: Two knights take a break from their Godot/Pinter duties to play skee ball.

Life Is Terrible: The Garfield fashion line has been unveiled.

Somehow, Garfield made each and every one of those attractive people less attractive.

Also, uhm. I feel like I'm treading on thin ice here, but re: #killallmen. I'm not saying that you actually want to kill all men, and I'm not trying to sound like a Men's Rights Douchebag, but when you're literally saying 'kill all men', it does open up the conversation to the possibility that you're advocating the position that you're advocating. I mean, I'm not saying that women haven't gotten the short end of the stick for all of human history. They have. But that doesn't mean that saying 'let's kill all the men' gets an assumed 'oh jk lol' included in it.

Again: Treading on thin ice here. Don't want to sound like a douchebag. But to read people advocating for the extermination of my entire gender en masse does feel a little tasteless..

@2: I just categorize it alongside "die cis scum".

Two English guys walking around in bowlers makes me nervous.

It was the Greyhound Maintenance Facility. Now it's going to be the Denny Substation!

I hope the substation buzzes.

Generally speaking, when they buzz there's something wrong. A hum is OK, but a buzz is bad. A boom is really bad.
