because it is an uppercase and a lowercase city

lxy didn't like the moore theater installation/intervention. i liked that we were able to explore a space, enter and exit a building in different ways, find corners and odd spots. but the spots could've been odder. it seemed thrown together at the last minute? wacky for wackinesses sake? if you're going to rent that theater you need to focus on ghosts and transformations (new>old>new>old>newin2009) and the sense that every corner is overrun by the last thing you'd expect there. not silliness for its own sake but a reminder of what it was and a wistful hope and also an inbetween. the backrooms themselves were kinda the best canvas, and it ends up with watermelons and monitors and a bar? make it a haunted house in june, summer ghosts exhuming themselves.

the bridge motel, the last thing (reference: http://www.ilxor.com/ILX/ThreadSelectedControllerServlet?boardid=62&threadid=83 ) was better. there you knew 'this is the last thing that will ever happen in this sordid smelly room. wow.' it gave the acts more permanence a story you could add on top, embellish, picture how it played out before.

at the moore it seemed like they didn't take advantage of the space, the physical area around them.

i liked when people walked out above the stage and i had to make a snap judgment on booing them.

jergins, Tuesday, 23 June 2009 04:23 (ten years ago) link

I agree! Also still pondering the program, which lists 32(?) sites within the theater but I felt like there were *maybe* 10? And yes, less random 'I am doing performance art' moments and more exploitation of the space/environment, plz. But yes, also, it was neat to have access at least.

it's true, i didn't like the moore thing. what a waste of a good idea and a wonderful venue. granted, the thing at the bridge motel was top notch A+++ so it's not really fair comparing. but still, the moore thing would have been on the disappointment end no matter what.

at the same time, i was very happy to spend some time with tehersa, et al, even if it wasn't for very long. (sorry for bailing early, t.)

lxy, Wednesday, 24 June 2009 04:48 (ten years ago) link

also, that building posted right up there is super hot.

lxy, Wednesday, 24 June 2009 04:48 (ten years ago) link

What is the bill and Melinda gates foundation building going up east of Seattle Center? Is it a building to house the foundation or is it a foundation-sponsored project? I could not tell. If it is for the foundation, they should give me a job because I live close.

tehersa (tehresa), Wednesday, 24 June 2009 05:11 (ten years ago) link

it will house the foundation. get a job there!

lxy, Wednesday, 24 June 2009 05:35 (ten years ago) link

(except the building might not be ready as soon as you might want a job)

lxy, Wednesday, 24 June 2009 05:36 (ten years ago) link

unless, you know, you're looking for a construction job in which case

lxy, Wednesday, 24 June 2009 05:37 (ten years ago) link

Could be good way to get fit?

tehersa (tehresa), Wednesday, 24 June 2009 05:48 (ten years ago) link

lxy, Saturday, 27 June 2009 03:09 (ten years ago) link

buttimore (jergins), Saturday, 27 June 2009 03:50 (ten years ago) link

I would like that very much. In addition to whiskey I am also quite fond of porches.

tehersa (tehresa), Saturday, 27 June 2009 03:52 (ten years ago) link

And good peoples.

tehersa (tehresa), Saturday, 27 June 2009 03:53 (ten years ago) link

lxy, Saturday, 27 June 2009 03:54 (ten years ago) link

so you like to watch dudes smoke up while they tap their feet to disco right.

buttimore (jergins), Saturday, 27 June 2009 03:55 (ten years ago) link

uh

tehersa (tehresa), Saturday, 27 June 2009 03:56 (ten years ago) link

Is that a trick question or

tehersa (tehresa), Saturday, 27 June 2009 03:57 (ten years ago) link

what

buttimore (jergins), Saturday, 27 June 2009 03:57 (ten years ago) link

no trick just treats babay

buttimore (jergins), Saturday, 27 June 2009 03:58 (ten years ago) link

(note to estela: that almost came out 'truck question')

tehersa (tehresa), Saturday, 27 June 2009 03:58 (ten years ago) link

truck question: am i glad or sad to be behind this vehicle?

lxy, Saturday, 27 June 2009 04:04 (ten years ago) link

I am baffled. Truck questions are tricky.

tehersa (tehresa), Saturday, 27 June 2009 04:15 (ten years ago) link

The qwest tech said there is a rockathon that is a marathon where bands play every mile. Hmm.

tehersa (tehresa), Saturday, 27 June 2009 18:48 (ten years ago) link

what's more annoying than running? having to run past wanker bands every few minutes.

lxy, Saturday, 27 June 2009 18:54 (ten years ago) link

(or in my case, having to stroll past a wanker band or two over the course of a coupla hours, till i hail a yellow cab to take me home so i can smoke in peace.)

lxy, Saturday, 27 June 2009 18:57 (ten years ago) link

There was also mention of business men in pirate costumes scaring children?

tehersa (tehresa), Saturday, 27 June 2009 19:01 (ten years ago) link

oh jesus. ya, seafair pirates. they're a seattle thing. a terrible, terrible seattle thing.

jergins will probably defend them.

tehersa (tehresa), Saturday, 27 June 2009 19:44 (ten years ago) link

lxy, Saturday, 27 June 2009 20:04 (ten years ago) link

The Seafair Pirates are goodwill ambassadors for the city of Seattle, and have traveled across the United States and Canada, as well as to Grand Cayman, Mazatlán, Kobe, and Taiwan. Each year they also travel to the Cayman Islands for Pirate Week. In 2007, Sports Illustrated was shooting its Swimsuit Issue for 2008 and the pirates appeared in full uniform with model Melissa Haro

buttimore (jergins), Sunday, 28 June 2009 04:11 (ten years ago) link

the pirates lecherous as hell and grab women off the street at parades and grab boobs, kiss. they also scare kids (that are easily scared). they harken back to the old less appropriate more gold miner/skid row Seattle that i love but am glad is gone. they though, they can stay.

tehersa (tehresa), Sunday, 28 June 2009 18:31 (ten years ago) link

my wandering auld fella is currently shacking up with a seattle habitant I'll have to enquire as to the prospects of the relationship with a view to fappage

esperantzen (p much resigned to deems), Saturday, 18 April 2015 10:13 (four years ago) link

!

lxy, Saturday, 18 April 2015 13:18 (four years ago) link

would it not be better to enquire in person?

lxy, Saturday, 18 April 2015 14:23 (four years ago) link

surely the situation needs assessing post haste?

lxy, Saturday, 18 April 2015 14:24 (four years ago) link

its over twenty years (god) since we left school for the summer in donegal and told our friends/classmates we were moving to seattle where my dad was due to take up a marine professorship or idk what.

after a summer of increasingly disturbing fuckery and brokenminded parenting we ended up living with cousins on that island I keep posting about instead, where I had to learn irish for five years.

he owes me a week in seattle, basically, is the point

esperantzen (p much resigned to deems), Saturday, 18 April 2015 14:27 (four years ago) link

i like 'post haste' in the context of ilx. but i always have to confirm to it's actually a thing before hitting submit because it's too perfect.

lxy, Saturday, 18 April 2015 14:28 (four years ago) link

XP I'll ask him in person in a fortnight, which only requires I wait a fortnight and spend no extra money. then I'll be right back to u with an answer.

esperantzen (p much resigned to deems), Saturday, 18 April 2015 14:29 (four years ago) link

that was an xxp I did not employ enough post haste

esperantzen (p much resigned to deems), Saturday, 18 April 2015 14:30 (four years ago) link

i think your island years weren't all bad? otoh i don't know what i'm talking about so.

he certainly owes you a week, if not the whole five years.

lxy, Saturday, 18 April 2015 14:33 (four years ago) link

xptoo

lxy, Saturday, 18 April 2015 14:33 (four years ago) link

i will be here in two weeks to learn the outcome

lxy, Saturday, 18 April 2015 14:35 (four years ago) link

they weren't all bad at all but at the same time there's no point letting him know that if there's free lodging up for grabs, and I def begrudge the Irish lessons.

esperantzen (p much resigned to deems), Saturday, 18 April 2015 14:38 (four years ago) link

marine professorship

like biology or maritime industry? if the latter and he needs employment he should connect with our jergins.

lxy, Saturday, 18 April 2015 14:44 (four years ago) link

it would have been the latter twenty years ago I guess, but he is very old now and I wouldn't recommend him to work with anyone I'd be afraid for him to fall out with tbh

esperantzen (p much resigned to deems), Saturday, 18 April 2015 14:49 (four years ago) link

but he is talking with contacts there about work as is so I guess he plans to se(a)ttle for a while

esperantzen (p much resigned to deems), Saturday, 18 April 2015 14:51 (four years ago) link

haha fair enough!
