Logging shows are more fun than I had expected. Displays of skill with dangerous power tools and heights....

Swypo OTD: "fireworks" -> "ghee Turks".
Why: shove your way to the front of the scrum to get off the ferry and then amble a generously spaced two abreast up the whole quarter mile walkway to the street?
I had no idea modular synths went back that far.
Eagle Harbor being as pretty as usual:

Three hours later: why the fuck is there still a newscopter in the air? The event unfolded in seconds and has generated zero opportunities for aerial footage, and since then it's been only press conferences and detectives combing the scene. Or as one of the better local journalists put it: https://mobile.twitter.com/jseattle/status/1127019457618989056

Why is there a newscopter over my neighbourhood? Oh, shit, that's why: http://www.capitolhillseattle.com/2019/05/multiple-victims-including-one-reported-dead-in-central-district-shootout/
I have been spending a lot of my time supporting and helping my friend who has reached a point, after almost 3yrs of bureaucracy, where our immigration have rejected her 2yo sons visa because the cost of his disability is a burden. This is despite the fact he will die if he goes home as they do not have the treatment he needs. We have a petition as part of the campaign for ministerial intervention. Would be so grateful if you could sign and share #savekayban
lmfao i love the picture for Darkthrone on last.fm right now
I haven't quite found that, but clothes shopping is fun for the first time in my life, and when I got my first new-style shirts I found myself excited like a kid with a new toy. I guess I should have done this a while ago.
It's been an interesting challenge figuring out what sort of thing to replace the old uniform with. I definitely want to push out of the "man box" but my tastes tend to run fairly stereotypically masculine, and those are the sorts of clothes that tend to look right on a me-shaped body. But at the William Morris Gallery recently I decided that my goal was shirts printed with his wallpaper designs.

There's a contest for all five of the Eurosenses!
* Eurovision is for original songs, of course
* Eurolfactory is for industrial design history trivia
* Europroprioception is for gymnastics
* Europrecognition is NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC WHO TOLD YOU WE EXIST, and
* Euroecholocation is for masked crime-fighting

For years I've had a uniform: plain trousers and plaid shirts, occasionally livened up with a smart jacket. It works but I've been getting bored with it, and feeling that how normie it's looked since plaid came back into fashion has made the wrong people [un]comfortable around me. So I'm trying to branch out.
This is day 1. I was a little nervous, but got exactly three comments: all compliments from people who see me regularly enough to recognise the departure.

Nothing like back-to-back Taiji classes to get me back to level. And with that vantage point I see how melodramatic that last sentence looks. But it's not today in isolation so much as that commute as a microcosm of a broader feeling that in the past 5 years, as we've failed to address either gentrification or homelessness, Seattle has become a meaner place.
