border crossing

When traveling to/fro Seattle-Vancouver, do I need to declare personal items? For example, if I take a dvd player to Vancouver when I'm visiting a friend (along with some movies), do I need to inform Canadian Customs and fill out something, so when I'm returning through US Customs with my dvd player, I am not suspected of buying it in Canada.

I feel like this is a very stupid question, but I can't seem to find a satisfactory answer. Well, not true. I did find a page that suggests you register items at the Canadian border. I guess I want to know if anyone has done this and how big of a pain it was.

3am construction?

I was awakened last night at 3 AM by a JACKHAMMER. being used at the corner of 9th and Seneca. wtf??

Did anyone else hear this?
There was some work being done on the corner there yesterday, but I'm almost positive all construction-type projects have to stop by 10pm, don't they?

And of course I'm getting the runaround from City of Seattle. I called Dept. of Planning and Development, they referred me to Dept. of Transportation because the work was happening on the sidewalk/street, who referred me to the Dept. of Utilities because a jackhammer was involved (breaking of the asphalt as they said). I just want to find out if these people had some sort of waiver and then file a complaint.

My brother got tickets to the D12 show tonight and printed on them is "Dress Code Enforced". Now, this is just at the Showbox, not a club or anything. Can he get away with wearing jeans, a t-shirt, and basketball shoes? He just doesn't want to get down there and not be let in. Thanks.
