Strangercrombie Hooray

posted by on December 18 at 16:42 PM

In case you weren’t following the action on Friday, our annual 10-day charity auction was a a huge success this year. We raised $60,000 for FareStart.

You’ll see a wrap-up in Thursday’s paper, and you can see exactly how much everything sold for here.

A man named Jeff won the Guest Star on Slog auction. He says he looks forward to defending the honor of West Seattle and the Alaskan Way Viaduct. You’ll learn more about him when he writes for Slog for seven days starting January 7.

Giant, glowing, red-hot thank yous to all of you who bid and to everyone who donated items and time and money. Sincerely, thank you.

Alaskan Way Viaduct rules!

Even if Carey Moon is even hotter in person than she is in print ...

Way to go Jeff!

Does this "Jeff" have a "screenname" by which we know him already? Cmon Jeff, spill.

Can I make bumper stickers that say: "I live in West Seattle and am Pro-Surface/Transit"???

The Viaduct: The old-skool Monorail. My favorite boulevard in the city.

Will-I just can't trust anything that Carey Moon has to say. I helped with some of her presentation stuff about 4 years ago, for only about 15 minutes. She seems the type that is super smart about just one thing, and has no common sense about the rest of the world. At least that is the impression that I had from our brief meeting, and I'm big on first impressions. Even if she is kinda cute.

Jeff? Well that's boring. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised.

jeff is only a true west seattlite if he dedicates at least one topic per day to Charlie Chong (RIP)

I'm glad I won the auction - but it was an honor just to be nominated.

You'll learn more about him when he writes for Slog for seven days starting January 7.

Or maybe you'll learn absolutely nothing about me.

HORRAY STRANGER, Great work on making fat ca$h !!

I have to say though that I DON"T LIKE the photos in this Strangercrombie. They look like Macy ads. Unusual for the Stranger who usually takes less tame, more game photos!!!!!

aha, NOW we know "which Jeff" ... someone asked us if the Jeff who's going to Slog in defense of West Seattle etc. is related to us and aside from his site being on our blogroll, sad to say, no. We were too cheap to get involved in the bidding war. Congrats, Jeff!

Well at least he isn't going to be defending Tacoma.

the male model was nothing by comparison to last year

and what happened to briefs and jock strap pix at the Stranger, is Dan getting too old? looked like long under wear bottoms without the interesting stains

with a little work this GOOD THING, thanks Martha, could go to three or four times more

like food banks for the money - if you are down and out - it starts with a bag of free food --- thanks to the Stranger, good work, really good good good work

Tikkum Olam is healing the world. The Stranger is the kindest, most generous Newspaper in Seattle.

$60,000 is a lot of money to throw at poor people. My friend just spent $75,000 putting in a five thousand square foot S&M dungeon into his Montlake home. So spending 60Gs on the poor is really making a sacrifice when it could be spent on things that are a lot more fun but a lot less "do gooder".

My Temple in New York raised 1.5 million for the Anti-Defamation league last year. Maybe The Stranger could consider a contribution to the anti-defamation league this year too?

Mazel Tov on being the only Seattle publication that feeds the homeless and makes Seattle way freaky sexy!

Issur- get a clue, the Seattle PI has raised millions.

But, indeed, three cheers to the Stranger.

Oh noes! I've clicked Jeff's link a couple times in my life... I've never gotten past the first sentence of the first post... The combination of glaring orange and massive quoting? Migraine.

Thus far, a tragic disappointment... Please prove me wrong.

Posted by Amelia | December 18, 2007 10:29 PM

Who indeed is this Jeff person? Prove us wrong dude... slog about something more interesting than mass transit..... pleeeeeezzzzzzeeee. And I live in West Seattle so good for you. Now do us proud....

It's the writing giving you the headache - the colors have nothing to do with it.

hey Jeff. Wanna be Mayor of West Seattle too??? I sobered up and realized I really don't have 49 friends who want to go to Mission.

Next time, we should lay off the booze when on eBay - I thought I was bidding on the golf outing.
