Here are a few shots from Friday night. Everything was shot without flash — I had my flash with me, but never got around to putting it on the camera. I haven’t been able to go completely flash-free at the club in _years_…no matter how I pushed my D70s, it just couldn’t quite handle the low light of a goth club. The D7000, though, doesn’t even pause. This is fun.
I keep seeing questions about why Norwescon and Sakura-Con are both scheduled for Easter weekend this year. Here’s my attempt at an answer, with the disclaimer that I’m not speaking officially for Norwescon or Sakura-Con.
A couple weeks ago, I posted a survey and asked for respondents from the local Seattle Gothic, or seagoth, community for a research project I was working on for my Law and Justice Research Methods class. For those of you curious about the final results, I’ve published the entire report. You can watch the presentation, read the report on the site, download the prettier .pdf version, or even download the .pdf version along with all the data files in case you want to do your own number crunching.
This is one of the most disturbing local stories I’ve seen in a long time. A 15-year old girl was beaten on the platform of the Seattle Metro Bus Tunnel, while security guards and witnesses stood around and watched.
That’s it, then. Slightly less than a month. Two important measures, both of which could use more support. Yes on R-71. No on I-1033. Don’t forget to vote.
I’ts official: as of 2:38 this afternoon (though this iPod screenshot was taken about an hour later), today is the hottest day in Seattle history!
The writing’s been on the wall for some time now, but it’s just been made official: tomorrow’s print run of the Seattle P-I will be its last.
Lucy’s second stop on the tour is at Seattle’s Pacific Science Center, where her exhibit is running from October through March 8th. Unfortunately, that could very well be her _last_ stop before heading home to Ethiopia. Apparently, not enough people are bothering to see the exhibit.
Buried in the midst of my Pride photos: my 12,000th photo uploaded to Flickr. Yeesh! Another 8,000-some shots and I’ll have as many pictures on Flickr as I have tracks in iTunes. Photowhore _and_ musicwhore, that’s me!
