Today, in Seattle

SouthPart

So I got into Seattle yesterday. Nice city, and good weather.

Spent several hours after breakfast at the Experience Music Project. There were a couple superbly curated exhibits on Jimi Hendrix & Nirvana which made me realize that I need to listen to more music.

(I'd like to take a moment to shout out to fenchurche for giving me a short intro to the town last week. I wish I had more time in town to see all of it, or even to hang out a bit. Next time for sure. Plus, that troll looks pretty cool)

EMP also had features on Horror films & sci fi. The horror one had several screens with short retrospectives on some of the curators. I don't respect Eli Roth but I don't hate him as much as I did yesterday morning.

Each screen was surrounded by a giant sized plastic sprue containing elements of each if their films.

Roth's display also had a door next to it. From behind the door could be heard the sound of power tools & screams & blood seeming to seep from beneath it.

There were a lot of props and displays.

I also checked out the Sci Fi Icons display ( while holding my newly acquired used copy of The Glass Teat. Stereotypical much?). It was mostly a display if props, but if you enjoy that stuff it's cool.

I enjoy that stuff, btw.

Contemplated the space needle, but I'm too cheap to drop a twenty for a view without a terrified wife at my side.

Perhaps in the future I'll grab a City Pass.

But yes, fun city. Took the monorail downtown & wandered a bit. Dropped into the local ebgames to take advantage of an offer on a Facebook game.

Don't judge me.

Strolled about Chinatown a bit (which is where the hostel I'm staying at is located) and grabbed some BBQ pork with rice & veggies for dinner. Late dinner, sure, but can anyone tell me what kind of pizza place closes at nine?

Good town. Kind of hate the radio station they have on in the common room. But I doubt you can get the CBC here.

It's Seattle. I think they can manage getting Radio One and Two there, even without the Net.

FYI, here's the frequencies:

CBC Radio Two 105.7 FM (CBU-FM)

CBC Radio One 690 AM, 88.1 FM (CBU)

You can get the CBC here if you try hard. But you should check out NPR 91.5 for news and information or KEXP for music.

Seattle is a sleepy village and everything closes early.

And NPR has US rights for some of CBC's programming if I remember correctly...?

Yep. As It Happens is an evening feature on one of our two NPR stations.
I also still keep up with The Vinyl Cafe every Sunday.

And Public Radio International's got Q. Not sure about The Current at the moment.
