02.27.15 courthouse

King County Courthouse: once voted the ugliest building in Seattle, now ranking among the loveliest (as the city succumbs to explosive growth without much planning or care for aesthetics).


02.27.15 manuscript

A page from the original manuscript of Dracula by Bram Stoker.


02.26.15 science

One night in 1987 a dozen of us were stranded after a concert, with no money for the ferry home. Logical solution? We jumped in the Science Center fountains and filled our pockets with coins. There were no fences back then…


02.26.15 monorail

The monorail station remains brilliant. Just avert your eyes from all the recent changes to the Seattle Center. Dream instead of bubble elevators and fun fairs.

I loved the Pike Place Market best when it was awash with piss and bordered by strip clubs and pawn shops. But I do concede the new shiny gentrified version is worth a visit, particularly since the donut stall is still there.


02.25.15 diner

One of my favorite places in the world: Randy’s Restaurant on East Marginal Way in Tukwila Washington. My grandma brought me here at some point in the 1970’s, and I come back whenever I can get a ride.

Hanging out with my mother as she pursues her post-retirement career: buying old shit at the Goodwill Bins store, roughing it up, and selling it on.

Jeffrey Henry has spawned! It was an honor to meet his child for the first time (Sophie and Otis dashed out of the shot)
