Clouds on the open ocean make things more interesting, although it was mostly thick cloud cover and since it was 40 or 50 most of the time, we were really hoping for a little more sun:

    You bested my clouds with your clouds. Sweet clouds, Babs.

    Anyway,

    CITY pt. 1


    Spoiler:
    Down by the water by Pike Place Market is a tourist mecca so it's weird to me
    that McDonalds keeps their ugliest McDonalds there.
    For reasons, this seems to me like if there was a McDonalds in that first city in Final Fantasy 7.







    Walking down a little side street, I like this wall.
    It always feels here, like you're in a Zombie Movie set in Mayberry
    and you just cleared out all the zombies.







    I like this thing. It's on an island in the middle of a street and it always feels good here.





    Having gotten a camera I discovered that I like lining up buildings
    in certain ways in pictures, so I plugged that traffic light into that line.






    I like this little park 'cause it looks like 70's Bob Newhart would eat lunch here
    after he died and went to Heaven.







    Waay back in, 2nd grade? 5th grade? I saw this painting by Charles Demuth
    called The Figure 5 In Gold and this reminds me of that.







    Go to Bottom if you want to get a Peashooter.






    This may not be a big deal to others, but being born in Idaho and raised in Utah,
    even after 10 years here, I still love walking downtown between the skyscrapers,
    and then you turn a corner and you see the water, that close to downtown.




    To my desert brain it still looks like something from a dream that couldn't be real.






    Like the cliches that are cliches because they're so true, PPM is packed with tourists,
    because it's so awesome.
    You may recall that this is where I saw my first Blue Snaggletooth.




    And you know I like upside-down things, so I was pleasantly surprised to find
    this lantern in a weird, dirty, hidden part of PPM.
    Unfortunately I could not get any good pictures of the awesome bowels of PPM
    because of all the fucking people.
    I did not want my compositions cluttered up with a bunch of hideous Pig-Monkeys.







    Sadly though, when it comes to public art, Seattle's mind is so open that it's brains fall out.
    Shittiest Public art ever, yo.
    Like this giant flower?

    Welcome! I'm the Mayor of Playland!


    This is one of the only sculptures I like and it's just 'cause it's a rip-off of whoever
    it was that started doing the big bronze globs like that.

    CITY pt. 2

    Okay, before we go up to my place, let's duck in this alley here where I always smoke.

    Spoiler:
    This always reminds me of a Celestials head.





    And this would be his hand.






    And this cracked me up.
    I talk a lot of shit about the homeless/psychos roaming our streets,
    but of all the things I've seen them do in alleys...shooting up, smoking crack,
    whacking off to porn on Thanksgiving, you have to be impressed by the alley denizen
    that took the time to do SIGIL MAGICK, to protect the alley. lol


    The spell is "Only That Which Serves The Greater Good May Enter This Space"
    I'm sorry to report, the spell did not work.





    Here's a very Seattley picture. When I walk by here, I'm like, "Man, I so live in Seattle?"






    I love these cylindrical buildings.






    I really do.






    I've got a comic book idea about these blue seal people so I liked this seal on a window.







    Check how dirty these street lamps are.

    That would never fly over where I work.





    When I moved here, people were bitching about what an eyesore this thing is.


    Uh, I like it. I'd really like to see it during the next big Earthquake.
    There's a bus stop under it.





    I like to imagine this building is full of green gel.





    And I lined these buildings up to make a weird new building.






    Walking home, I got this perspective lesson,




    and I pictured this as a chrome gorilla robot emerging from the forest.

    Spoiler:

    Approaching my building, right by the front door, there is this very cool 80's
    Candy-Colored Sci-Fi wall art and "graffiti".





    Fuck you, taggers. Try something like th^t.






    Now here are my guitars.

    • Starting from the left, that is one ugly-ass guitar, but it's my James Tyler Variax, just a tool I use to simulate the sounds of Dobros, Banjos, Baritone Guitars, Hollow Bodies, Telecasters, 12 Strings, Sitars, etc. It's cooler than the last Variax because you can also flip a switch to instantly go into open tunings or even make your own virtual alternate tunings. They sound aight...better than keeping 50 different instruments in my little apartment.

    • Next, I finally found it, my dream guitar. I can use it to translate my thoughts into sound waves...The Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro. I do not know why it's called "Traditional" because it's not traditional. It has the coil tap push/pull knobs and Grover locking tuners. I started off loving the gross tobacco color with irony but I also actually love it now. All the other ones were boring. Would have gotten dark green. I do not understand the aversion to making green guitars. It is twangy as fuck.

    • Next, my experimental fretless...just got a $700 Epiphone and paid Parsons Guitars a couple hundred to remove the frets. I have gotten amazing sounds out of it. There are no fucking frets to impede your expression.

    • Then, just my 1960 replica Les Paul, for slabbier sounds. Still have not put the pick ups Jimmy recommended, into it...they just sit there in a box.



    And here you can see my Fender bass in with 'em. It's got some knobs...a knob within a knob. That's nice.





    I was thinking it would be cool to just leave them out all the time,
    since I'm sober now and will never have kids...so I was going to cover them with this.


    Turned out the humidity was fucking them up so I have to keep them in cases,
    but I like the way the cloth is distorting the monkey god in the picture.






    I was so excited about this. There was a time I would have paid a hundred bucks
    for this poster. It never occurred to me that there was a company that did
    reproductions of every fucking movie poster ever made.
    That's almost everything I love in that poster.







    Reflected city plus Fallout New Vegas on TV looked sweet...
    like it's a giant Japanese Blade Runner Fallout video billboard in the city.






    I love how it looks like there's a dreamland of fun over yonder on a hill between the buildings,
    if you could just get over there.
    I'm always out on the deck loving the view and loving how different it looks over there every day.
    The last one is hella magical...looks Skyrimmy, yo.

    If only all graffiti were that cool

    Do you have a doorman at your apartment?
