What Are You Doing This Weekend? Stranger Critics Answer the Question

Posted by on Fri, Jul 25, 2014 at 5:01 PM

Kathleen Richards: "Experiencing my first Block Party!"

Dave Segal: "Entering the moronic inferno (I mean, three-day musical funfest) known as Capitol Hill Block Party and blogging about some of the acts playing it, while eating my weight in energy bars. See you on the other side... maybe."

Emily Nokes: "Today: Block Party. Tomorrow: Block Party. Sunday: If I am not dead yet, perhaps I will DJ for a bit with my bandmate during Saint John's brunch (long enough to inhale French toast and play this M.I.A. song), and then more Block Party!"

Krishanu Ray: "Going to a Mariners' game instead of Block Party #normCore"

Jen Graves: "The Lady and the Beard! That's one of the movies screening outside tonight at the Asian Art Museum's Deco Night. What I'm doing tonight is The Lady and the Beard. Tomorrow I'm swimming in the ship canal."

Paul Constant: "I'm going to spend most of the weekend going on long walks, hanging out in backyards, and attending birthday parties. But I might want to go to a movie, too. I've seen almost everything that's in theaters right now, but I'm thinking about re-watching Dawn of the Planet of the Apes or, especially, Boyhood."

Bethany Jean Clement: "I am going to the Symposium at Smoke Farm to get ensmartened. And go swimming."

Charles Mudede: "On Saturday, I'm delivering a little and hopefully meaningful talk called 'Adventures with Thomas Piketty' at the Smoke Farm Symposium. In case you do not know: Thomas Piketty is the biggest thing to happen to economics since the invention of money."

I like Krishanu's style. If I were a Mariners fan I'd be there, too. Instead I'll stream the Giants/Dodgers radio feed while enjoying frosty beverages on the porch. (Go Giants!)

I'll be riding Cyclocross on the track outside my apartment (bike lanes are so 00s)…

It's the weekend now, right? I'm listening to the great Hawai'ian Gabby Pahinui. Tomorrow I'm going to drink wine with friends and talk bullshit and maybe watch Tottenham Hotspur again on a TV.

Once again please note that nobody in this posting is actually going to actively read anything!

Shocker of shockers!

Also, please note that Mr. Mudede is unnecessarily gushing about Thomas Piketty, whose book, although good, had serious shortcomings and did not fully examine all existing data, which would have given an even more disastrous and accurate portrayal of absolute inequality.

And, of course, almost everyone will be slumming at you-know-who's block party, because everyone at Der Stranger is so independent minded?
