it's laundry day

on sunday, i went to see jason mraz in concert. it was awesome! he's great live, and i always enjoy myself a lot at his shows. but what i don't understand is what's up with the seats? i think this type of show is more enjoyable when everyone is on their feet and feeling the music. of course, a lot of people stood up anyways, and i certainly did too, since the people in front of us did (most of them anyways), even tho a couple poopers behind us kept telling us to sit down. what the fuck, you're at a concert, so why don't you just shut the fuck up. it was funny tho, cuz jason told everyone who was sitting down that they weren't really fans, and that they must be here with their friends who are. booyah fuckers! they stopped complaining after that.

jason played most of the songs i wanted to hear, but he didn't play the single! it's not as if it's the best song on the cd, but you'd think he would at least perform the single. i like the song a lot, but i guess i wouldn't have traded any of the other songs for it. well, he coulda played another couple songs, rite?

of course, it wasn't just jason that rocked. his lady friend tristan prettyman and british guy james blunt opened for him, and they were pretty awesome too. i admit, i missed most of tristan's performance, but i'd seen her earlier in the year at a smaller venue, and she sung beautifully then too. anyhow, great performances all around. unfortunately, we didn't do any mraz-hunting this time around, but we still have fond memories of meeting a drunk jason at a bar after a show last year.

vote for the monorail

people of seattle! why is the monorail up for a vote again!? this is fucking ridiculous! we've voted for it like four fucking times already! just build the god damned thing! if you haven't already voted (by absentee ballot or in person), go fill in that fucking YES circle, now! if this doesn't pass, there will be no monorail, and that pretty much sucks for everyone who's tired of our horrible traffic and our slow and inconvenient public transportation. i want a rapid transit system, dammit!

also, people of washington state! vote NO on that stupid tim eyman initiative 900. it's a waste of state money! why can't this fucker just go the fuck away? what is that fetish called where you get off on thinking up stupid initiatives and then attaching some sort of tax cut to it so that people will vote for it? we didn't want slot machines everywhere last year, and we don't want this shit this year. i hate tim eyman and his idiocy, and i wish i didn't have to hear his name every fucking year. please, tim, if you're listening, move to canada or something!

it's really up in the air with i-901, the smoking ban initiative. i think it goes too far in marginalizing the smoking population even more, and if i were a smoker, i'd be really vehemently against it. what do you mean i won't be able to smoke within 25 feet of not just the door, but any window or vent, of any public establishment? that's beyond stupid! where the hell am i going to smoke!? but then again, i'm not a smoker.

finally, people of king county! keep ron sims in the county executive job. he's doing a fine job, no matter what they say, and he supports the gays and their rights. and we all love the gays, right?

yes, this is korean pop star rain, a picture from a recent issue of vman taiwan. i think he's hot. like many pop stars in asia, not only does he act, he also sings. so far he's only been in some k-dramas, like "full house" (in which he plays... a pop star an actor), and released three albums, the latest of which ("it's raining") i picked up cuz the single "i do" was just too catchy for me to resist. plus, he wore a white jacket in the mv for it, so...

i like what he's wearing here, tho i could do without the cargo pockets. it's also almost enuf for me to reconsider belt buckles.

i'd love to have met him, but not all of us are as lucky as life in "the kong". sigh...
