Argh WHAT IS IT

I don't usually feel the compulsion to make these kinds of posts, but...

If you're up in Shoreline near Shoreline Community College, do you know WHAT THE HELL is going on with the plane (or chopper?) that's been up in the air for like twenty minutes now?! It's a bit nerve wracking.

Edit: It is gone and remains a mystery... dun dun dun.

Moving recommendations

Hey-

I'm moving towards the end of the month and looking for advice on who to hire (or avoid) for a local move. We're just going from SLU to Mt. Baker/Columbia City area. Any personal experience or recommendations greatly appreciated.

Additionally, any places worth checking out in the Columbia City neighborhood (other than the places on Rainier)? I've gotten spoiled living so close to Fremont and downtown. I don't really know this neighborhood very well yet.  Thanks in advance for any wisdom.

Black light posters?

Hey Seattle LJ,

I'm hoping you can help me find the best place to acquire black light posters. Apparently it's not the 70's anymore, so I'm having a difficult time finding quantity/quality. Any suggestions? I'd prefer shops on the north end or east side, but I'm willing to travel if there's an ultimate source.

TIA!

posted by: lettered in seattle

Please feel free to link this around to anyone who might be interested.

Hello Earth is a grass roots community enterprise formed with the intention of presenting free entertainment in outdoor spaces. Our current project is a play based on an episode ("Mirror, Mirror") of Star Trek: The Original Series.

Auditions tonight (Sunday, March 16, 2014) and Tuesday (March 18, 2014) from 6:00pm to 9:00pm, at Theatre Puget Sound, in the Armory/Center House on the 4th floor in Seattle Center, Studio C (Sunday, March 16th) and Studio I (Tuesday, March 18th).

Needed: Actors to fill all roles (except Kirk, Spock and McCoy), which will be cast without regard to the gender or race of the original series characters. We are not looking for impersonation. We are looking for creative people who want to be part of the process both on and off stage.

Auditions will consist of cold readings. Please be prepared to stay for the entire time; we may not need you for that long but we will be holding callbacks after hearing everyone.

Performances will take place at the end of July and beginning of August outside at Blanche Lavizzo Park.

Please contact me, lettered, or helloearthseattle@gmail.com with any questions.

Hey Seattle.

My mom passed away about a year and a half ago, and I'm still struggling with it.  I'm already on butt loads of antidepressants and anti anxiety meds, plus sleeping pills, but I'm not coping well.

I need to talk to someone, preferably in the South end, Rainier Ave., etc.  or downtown.  It would be awesome if they did NLP or CBT type therapy.  Bonus points and I will bake you brownies if they accept Medicare, but if not and they're good, I'll find the money somehow.

My Google fu is failing me.

Please help.  My mom would not want me to be like this, she wants me to enjoy my life.

Thank you.

posted by: iamkatia in seattle

OK, so, here's the final update on my 6th annual street youth xmas fundraiser--the goal was $1600.00 and WE BLEW PAST IT by several hundred!! Our grand total, collected from 36 donors is $2,037.98--WOOHOOO!!! that's about $167.00 a month that i'll be able to afford to get kids that one thing they really need; a phone for job searching, a bus ticket back to their home state and families, warm winter-wear and blankets, hand-warmers (a homeless man said last night that they were "lifesavers", they are, buy some and keep them in your glovebox for the ppl spanging at off-ramps. that and new pairs of socks) 3 $15.00 money orders a month for our kids in prison,--on and on, so much need comes up! and now, thanks to these 36 donors and all of the people who rallied and shared, i'm in a position to help a lil bit. i bless you all. this is truly the real spirit of Christmas. deep, deep thank you's to Cathy C, Cara L, Age D (gave twice!), Sara G, Clystina W, Linda L #1, Linda L #2, Nicholas I, Jack, Justin S (is this the ex-street youth?? that would be a first, and awesome, must find out), Mary F, Don L, Stephanie M, Aaron G, Mac M, Sharon P, Babylonia A, Patsyann C (gave twice!), Carlo V, Ryan W, Carolyn F, Nicole D, Deirdre&Blake L, Rachel P, Shannon R (gave twice!), Jennifer C, Chalice B, Audra B, Yahm P, Karen S, Lori J, Meagan B, Carol W, Suzanne P, Mindy W, Ruth Y. BLESS YOU ALL.
some years ago, i put together a lil slideshow of some of my street family members. click on the link below, click on 'Street Youth in Seattle', then 'play slideshow', turn on yr speakers, and sit back and enjoy.

i love you all. i love you all.

...

96 hr update: every morning for the last 4 days i've started my day weeping tears of joy while sipping my coffee and reading all the incredible notes of love and support pouring in on behalf of my beloved street family.
notes like this one:

Mac ******* sent you $75.00 USD:

"I wish so much that I could donate more. We have so little money but we wanted to help, so we took all of our Christmas budget and we're giving it to the kids who need it so much more than our gift recipients do. :-) Katia, these kids are so fortunate to have a mother like you. Bless you."

WHOA. right? ...i'm more convinced than ever that the greatest gift one can give to themselves is to help others.

so,.. here's where we're at--the goal this year is to reach $1600.00 which beats last year's total by $8.00. we are now at $1,457.06 (!!!) we are only $143.00 away from our goal! we sooo got this. we need one last final push to get over that finish-line. so pls toss in a few dollars and continue to share (all the shares have been amazing!) and by this time tomorrow, we'll be wrapping things up here w a huge THANK YOU and a street family slideshow. Merry Xmas, and bless you all!! <3

72 hr Update: Big, wonderful spike in donations yesterday! We're up to 19 donors giving a total of $1,136.50!! I couldn't be happier. Only $463.50 to raise to reach this year's goal of $1600.00. Yesterday's donations were big--3 people gave a total of $400.00. Wow! But now's the time when lots of smaller $5. & $10. donations can make a huge difference. Pls help us get to the finish-line! For the Kids!! <3

48 hr Update: A dozen people have donated a total of $631.50! We're 40% to the goal of $1600. Please keep sharing and pls keep giving. Let's show the youth here that we love them and care deeply for their well-being. <3

24 hr Update: It's been almost 24 hours since the fundraiser began and, so far, 7 people have donated a total of $453.25! That's a great start toward my $1600. goal this year, but we need more than 7 people to step up for our youth! Can you donate what you'll spend at your favorite coffee shop today to help support street kids who are trying to improve their lives? Pls consider it. The money raised will likely last all year and goes to things like--winter wear, blankets, tents, sleeping bags, skateboards (totally legitimate, environmentally friendly means of transportation!), books, phones (for kids actively looking for employment), clothing, bus tickets, replacement ID's, household items for when they get their 1st apt/room..

To donate $ go to this paypal link:

https://www.paypal.com/

And make a donation to my email address: iamkatia@gmail.com

If you'd rather offer gift cards, that's awesome! I'll PM you my address.

If you rather meet a youth and take them shopping for their needs, i will be thrilled to arrange that!

If you can only spare $5.00, I know what that's like! and I will put it to good use.

I have been so honored to be street mom for hundreds of youth over the last decade. It's been the most important thing I've ever done in my life. And I have been so blessed by the kid's presence in my life.

Thank you for supporting these amazing and worthy young members of our Family. <3

6th annual Seattle street youth fundraiser!

Dec. 17th, 2013 | 10:35 am
posted by: iamkatia in seattle

It's that time of year again when I ask you all to reach into your hearts, and wallets, to show some love for Seattle street youth this holiday season.

Last year I was able to raise $1,590.26 to help get street youth the things they need ALL YEAR ROUND -- not just for Christmas. In fact, the $ raised lasted until last month, where I spent the last $115.00 on blankets and 3 - $15.00 money orders for kids in prison. This year I'd love to beat that record and get over $1600.00. There is no doubt in my mind that we can do this!

It's easy--just go to this paypal link:

https://www.paypal.com/

And make a donation to my email address: iamkatia@gmail.com

Another option is donating items, such as bus tickets/Orca cards, hand-warmers, sketch pads/art supplies, winter accessories, etc..

And yet another option is A.S.K.--Adopt a Street Kid for the holiday season and take them shopping yourself!

I love you all!! Bless your kind hearts. <3

And please share widely!!

**

UPDATE: Received 3 donations in a little less than 4 hours, for a total of $300.00.
Almost 20% of the way to my goal of $1600.00, woohooo!! Bless. <3

So probably two years ago or so I posted here looking for a place to get sopapillas. Real pillowy ones, not a goddamn fried tortilla with chocolate sauce and whipped cream.

Well I am pleased to report I have found something just a few inches off from being the real deal. Plaza Garibaldi in Queen Anne makes sopapillas that are like smaller, slightly more donut-like versions of a real New Mexican/Arizonan sopapilla.

Any nurses on here?  I've lived here for 6 months and work in one of the hospitals on First Hill. (I'd rather not bad-mouth by name in a public forum). I don't know a lot of people in Seattle and my only fellow nurse friends here work in my same hospital.
I am thinking of moving to another hospital, (or other nursing job) but don't have anyone to ask which might be better.  I'd hate to give up a tolerable, but not great  job for something I end up hating.  Anyone have opinions on which places are best to work in the Seattle Metro area? Any opinions or advice welcome.

Anyone live in West Seattle near Arbor Heights and willing to do a stranger a favor?

Nov. 12th, 2013 | 12:58 pm
posted by: faithful_summer in seattle

Anyone live near Arbor Heights in West Seattle?

My dog had some specialty medical supplies shipped and the woman who took my order got my street wrong. Despite my street being a NE street, because the address did not exist on the street she chose, apparently their map software decided to correct the address to the West Seattle zip code where there's a similar address that actually exists. Despite the street address on the package saying NE, it was delivered *somewhere* not here, and I suspect it was to the SW address.

Anyway, they are shipping me more supplies, but that takes time. I'd like to find out if my supplies are actually at the address that I suspect they're at. It's not a close drive for me, so I decided I'd put it out here to see if anyone actually lives in this neighborhood and might be willing to go knock on a door to see if someone got an unexplained package of medical supplies with my name on it. If I knew for sure it was there, then I'd be happier about spending the time/gas to go get it.

It might be a fat chance of anyone here living right around there, but I figured it doesn't hurt to ask.

So.  Anyone want a dog?  The other stupid thing was him adopting the dog when he lives in a one-bedroom apartment.  Well, two now but whatever.  Alternately, where are the decent no-kill shelters in Seattle?  I'm way the fuck up here in SnoLOLmish County.

Searching for apartment and/or weekly rental

Oct. 2nd, 2013 | 03:55 pm
posted by: p1nk5pider in seattle

My request: I'm looking for an apartment/room in shared house somewhere preferably in or around the U-District, and preferably not much more than $650 a month. Some place that offers short term or month-to-month lease is a must.
I know it would be easier to search the neighborhood in person, but at the moment I'm crashing at my dad's place down in Vancouver (WA), so if anyone can suggest a reasonably-priced weekly rental place in the Seattle area where I can stay until I find something more permanent, that would help too!

(Extended version): All the online apartment listings only seem to list luxury apartments with $1000+/mo. studios, and Craigslist has been a disappointment too as I have sent in close to 20 emails over the past couple weeks, and have had only 1 reply (and when I went in to look at the place it was a complete dump. It will do for a month or so but if there's something better out there I'd prefer not to live in a fly-infested stink hole).

Please and thank you as always!

Looking for cheap/free child's wagon

Sep. 7th, 2013 | 05:20 pm
posted by: faithful_summer in seattle

Looking for cheap or free wagon I can use to pull my elderly dog in when we go places. Hate to leave her home when we take the other dogs out, but she just gets worn out so quickly. I've been looking on Craigslist, but most of the wagons I've been seeing are newer style with built-in chairs for kids (that or expensive collector items). Plain old flat wagon would be ideal. Needs to have fairly high sides so she doesn't fall out or try to get out and hurt herself. Good hardy wheels a plus so we could bring her when we take the younger dogs to the dog park (which is gravel, dirt, etc.). She's about 35 pounds, so a standard size wagon should work as long as the sides are high enough. Reply or message me if you think you might have something that works and maybe we can make a deal!

Hi there, I'm looking for a lawyer. The last entry in the "legal" tag was from 2012 so I'm looking for some newer info.

My partner does freelance music work and has a client who is consistently late with payments. The client has been selling his soundtrack on Steam for awhile and now says that they will only pay yearly, which seems absurd to us. Caveat: there are no contracts, only IM logs and in person talks. It was a good faith agreement that he would be paid in a timely fashion, and trust us, there will be no more work done again without a contract (don't need the snark, we know we dun' goofed here).

So I guess I'm looking for a media/intellectual property/copyright type of lawyer, if you have any recommendations. The industry is video games, so bonus points if the lawyer has taken those cases before. Thank you! We're in the Kirkland area, but willing to drive to Seattle and surrounding areas.

Help reunite this soldier with his dog

I'm trying to boost the signal on this story wherever I can.

Soldier returns from war, finds his dog was given away or sold

He's also posted several CraigsList ads begging for the return of his dog. The ads cover the whole Eastern Puget Sound area, and the soldier was deployed from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, so Oakley is likely to be somewhere in NW Washington. Spread the word if you can.

I'm a currently unemployed UW grad looking for a place to volunteer long term. I have a strong interest in law and would like continue volunteering when I find a job and am working ~40 hours per week. Would appreciate if anyone could point me in the right direction! I live in the Green Lake neighborhood.

Anger management help?

Jul. 11th, 2013 | 12:17 pm
posted by: lonelywizard in seattle

Hi,

I'm looking for a help for a friend. He is in great need of anger management classes or a therapist. He is unable to work so I'm trying to find something free or sliding scale. I haven't really seen much anger management specific stuff.

Also if you might know of any affordable therapists or psychiatrists that would be wonderful. He is bipolar and we have tried everything through DSHS etc. to get him help and it keeps ending up no where.

Kind thanks

Outdoor Star Trek

Star Trek Episode “The Devil In The Dark” Launches at Blanche Lavizzo Park

Seattle—Hello Earth Productions is proud to announce its third annual “Outdoor Star Trek” performance series. Performances will be Saturdays at 7pm and Sundays at 2pm in Dr. Blanche Lavizzo Park’s amphitheater (in the Central District) on the weekends of July 27-28 and August 3-4. The classic episode has the crew of the Enterprise investigating a mysterious monster, only to discover a new life form called a Horta. The show is free and open to the public.

Outdoor Trek is a community project which celebrates the diversity of the original series, while at the same time adapting it to the 21st century, outdoor theater, and community. The inspiration is half sci-fi, half Shakespeare. Shakespeare in the park is a well-loved tradition, offering free theater, a social gathering in the sunshine, and a familiar, classic story. Hello Earth presents a new classic, just as beloved, only this time in outer space.

“The Devil In The Dark” was written by Gene L. Coon, and was the twenty-sixth episode of the first season. It is highly regarded among fans, memorable due to the strange and yet compelling life form known as the Horta. Arthur C. Clarke said of the episode, “It impressed me because it presented the idea, unusual in science fiction then and now, that something weird, even dangerous, need not be malevolent.” Hello Earth uses this idea to promote the themes of diversity and understanding inherent in Star Trek, which can be seen not only in the friendly-yet-terrifying Horta, but through cast, props, and sets. In a world of infinite diversity, Kirk and Spock can be played by women, beach balls can be alien eggs, and phasers can be water hoses. Star Trek is a dream of the future brought to you by your TV screen; Hello Earth brings that dream to your backyard.

Hello Earth Productions produced the Star Trek episode “The Naked Time” in 2010, and “This Side of Paradise” in 2011. After a brief hiatus, Hello Earth is back at Dr. Blanche Lavizzo Park for Outdoor Star Trek. The company happily accepts donations during the performances, but there is no charge. It is recommended for spectators to bring cushions, as the amphitheater seating is concrete. You can learn more about their activities at helloearthproductions.org or on Twitter at @hello_earth.

Eastside tattoo artists?

posted by: chokethewind in seattle

Hi there,

I'm in Kirkland and looking for an artist. It will be a small script side piece, so someone good with script is ideal. Willing to travel for a good artist, would prefer to stay on the Eastside. Eastside Electric Tattoo seems to have good reviews on Yelp, if anyone has any experience with them.

The last entry in the tattoo tag was back in 2011, so hoping for some newer input. Thanks!

Experiences with Willamette Dental?

Jun. 26th, 2013 | 02:22 pm
tags:
posted by: haremstress in seattle

So I'm getting new dental insurance from my employer, and I can choose among a few options, once of which is Willamette.

I went to Yelp and the Renton location has a couple 5-star reviews, Lynnwood has a single 5-star review, and all the others look completely abysmal. Has anyone here (who isn't one of the aforementioned Yelpers) dealt with Willamette and are they really that bad/is the Renton location actually good?

The other managed care option I have is one of Delta Dental's PEBB plans, and the providers on that have either no reviews or terrible reviews. Sigh. (The group I'm in is 3100, for what it's worth, basically if anyone here is a public employee... who's your dentist?)

I'm trying to reach out and see if anyone has had any bad experiences with the Seattle Pug Rescue.

Obviously,I had a fairly bad experience and after looking further into SPG, I'm finding I'm not alone.

Sark on.

Personal Recommendations for Hair Coloring

posted by: errantly in seattle

Who in Seattle do you recommend for all-over unnatural color? Think teal or lavender.

Without recommendations I'll head to Lush and take whoever they put me with - can't go wrong there, but a personal recommendation is always better.

Cheap downtown parking

posted by: hoshinekoyasha in seattle

Anyone know any good places to park if I need to park downtown on a weekday morning for two hours? (Tuesdays 9.30am to 11.30am)

Is the library parking lot a reasonable option or is it usually full? Will there be street parking available?

Second hand furniture?

Jun. 10th, 2013 | 12:58 pm
posted by: daveon in seattle

I'm getting rid of two large sofas, they're not too bad but it's time for a change for us, and we've tried Craigslist and a couple of other places with no luck.  We're about to have them thrown out, but I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions on Second Hand Furniture places who might take them off our hands.

If the good weather could hold, I'd probably put them on the easement which seems to be the way to get rid of furniture around here, but the rain looks to be coming back.

Any thoughts?

Fathers Day;

Jun. 8th, 2013 | 12:55 am
posted by: mousefarts in seattle

Hey guys, I'm originally from PA, & I am sending my dad a care package for Fathers day of some snacks that are well known & made/popular/a favorite in Seattle, WA.
Problem is, I moved here in Jan & I am not sure of brands or what is famous here.

My dad would enjoy things like potato chips, horseradish, pretzels, chocolate, gummies (maybe)....I tried googling but found no real good results..any help?

Open to all suggestions for things that are easy to ship, don't ask me to send my dad some Salmon or Chowder...haha! I could do a gift basket or edible basket online but I thought the Seattle touch would be cute since he was a little scared with me moving across the country..


Thanks!
