Re: “What the Hell is Going On On the Esplanade?!

I don't know when Hales' walking cops plan will start, but it seems like now is the time. My lord.

Re: “Strange Melody

I loved her first album, but when I saw Jessica Pratt at Pickathon a couple years back she was a total... prat. Sullen and haughty, refusing to engage with the audience or interviewer to the point of being rude - why agree to perform in that space, then? It was cringe-worthy. I now have a hard time separating her [pretty-good] art from the artist.

I'd be interested to know if she's had an attitude adjustment since or if the move to LA was just to be closer to her people.

Re: “Portland and Ferguson and Race and the Police


At the very least, I take comfort from the fact that, even before his diversity training, Charlie was deeply and personally against the militarization of the police. Always said they could have the body armour, as long as it was pink.

Re: “BREAKING: Oregon Won't Defend Its Same-Sex Marriage Ban in Court

Denis, Lake Perriguey and Lee Ann Easton brought the original suit that started this ball rolling. BRO/ACLU only filed suit and brought motion to join prior suit months later, when they realized the impact Lake and Lee Ann's suit would have. Of course - I'm sure you know this already.

I realize that BRO and ACLU are publicity savvy, and were prepared to hold a press conference, but it would be nice to hear from the original plaintiffs as well. They stepped up first and this day must be incredibly meaningful for them.

Re: “Beauty Is in the Eye of the Beholder

I love the idea that Chris is on the "take" from O&S. Because.... Piattino is some sort of threat? It's silly to the point of absurd. Chris may have an unusual background for a restaurant reviewer, but his delight in well-loved, well-prepared food is no joke - whether he's reviewing a unnoticed cafe off Alberta or a bastion of fine dining 20 years into it's run. And he always discloses when he has a special relationship to an establishment, or has been given particular access. The man has dealt with comic-con people, so food nerds ain't no big.

I've had the misfortune to taste some of the food the owner of Piattino - and while I think he loves to be a restauranteur, he has no IDEA what good, modern Italian food is. Quality control has to come from the top - and unfortunately the owner, while an incredibly sweet man, has no taste. I'm happy for the owner that he has so many loyal (if misguided and weirdly prone to conspiracy theory) fans, but his food is unfortunate and it's only fair that Chris use his power to warn us.

Re: “UPDATED: From The Cogen/Manhas File

Gotta say, it totally makes sense to spark up before a parade. Parades are *boring* for the participants - a joint would make all that walking and waving much more tolerable.

Re: “Some Quick Words About That Ural Thomas and the Pain Show Last Night

It was an amazing show! Ural was just incredible. And I'm so proud of Scotty Magee for getting back behind the kit to help make this happen.
