I've been reading Everybody Loves Our Town in dribs and drabs as I go to sleep, or in the bathroom.

I just got on FB and it threw Jonathan Poneman at the top of the 'People You May Know' box. We have 48 friends (out of his 3200 or thereabouts) in common. 

Nope, I don't know him.

p0tat0es: (nope)

It would seem that I have no capacity for snark. I can't stand to read the comments on articles on Slog, or Line Out, or the P-I's site, or on [livejournal.com profile] seattle even.

What I hate is a) people making inflammatory comments anonymously, and b) people, who's positions I might actually support, making their point in such a ham-fisted way as to alienate anyone they might persuade, including me.

If you post something inflammatory or accusatory, I think you should have the cajones to sign your name (or in these cases, add a valid email address) to it. Take ownership of your statements. Do not be a little bitch who flings poo and then hides. And please do not allow conversations to immediately dissolve into "You suck!...no you suck!"

If I was one of those people who got off on debating, playing the devil's advocate, or was a political gadfly, maybe I'd feel different. I can't say for sure, because I am none of these things. Maybe someone can enlighten me on the appeal of this. 

OK, I'm going to go look at [livejournal.com profile] baaaaabyanimals now.

Work is super slow today, so basically I've spent all morning and afternoon looking at guitars on the internest.

So many pretty guitars.

Also: Reggie Watts is on the new Prince Paul record. What?

p0tat0es: (chop suey!)
I was going to write an expanded version of my experience at Rock Lottery on Saturday, but my bandmate-for-the-day Levi already did it, and better than I could have.

Seattle is too fucking small.

I guess it's only official in the sense that I'm sitting in an office and I've declared this. But seriously! Do people have this problem elsewhere? It seems like you can't get more than, like, three degrees of separation, much less six.
