Seafair

So I've lived in the area all of my life and I've never once seen the hydro races. Does anyone know if the only way to see them is to pay for it? Or are there places on lake washington you can watch them from?

go see this documentary @ the Harvard Exit

- remember folks, if big business is to rule the world, then at least have the CEO's take a class or two on STAKE HOLDER THEORY!

"Stakeholder theory is a critique of the strong stockholder doctrine in U.S. corporation law and financial-economics theory positing that management's clear fiduciary responsibility is to maximize economic rents on behalf of the firm's legal owners (the residual claimants). Strong stockholder doctrine was articulated in Dodge Brothers v. Ford (1919), in which the Michigan Supreme Court ordered Ford Motor Co. to pay a special dividend." In the stockholder model, other stakeholders - particularly employees - do not count.


One hundred and fifty years ago, the corporation was a relatively insignificant entity. Today, it is a vivid, dramatic and pervasive presence in all our lives.

THE CORPORATION charts the spectacular rise of an institution aimed at achieving specific economic goals as it also recounts victories against this apparently invincible force.

Club hopping tonight?

I like it that Pioneer Square has so many clubs, especially with the joint cover. If I don't like the scene and music at one club, I'll just leave and go to another. The hip hop clubs didn't look like they were doing as well as the clubs that play trance and electronica (Phoenix Underground, Last Supper Club). Well, getting padded down by a guy after standing in line forever doesn't do much for me (now if it were a pretty woman, ... ), and then there's not that many people inside. So the Last Supper Club and Phoenix Underground were good. I like different levels for different music. You know, something to mix it up a little when a DJ sounds tired.

Does anyone know of any other clubs like this (Pioneer Square, Capitol Hill, Belltown)? Especially ones with blacklights and giant projections of animated eye candy on the wall? I'm trying out some blacklight body paint that I bought at Spencers, but it doesn't stick very well, especially when there's sweat. Any suggestions on that? Does anyone else want to try it, or am I the only one?

Say, anyone wanna go out and have some fun tonight?

has anyone ever rater frequently done a drive from olymipa to seattle?
the last week of july, i need to be in bellevue (but estimates to seattle are fine) by 11:30 on M, W, and Th. I'll be near Black Lake in Olympia camping and I'm going to drive back to Bellevue for a hour or two each day, so I won't be leaving to head back to Olympia any later than 1:30. How long do you think it will take for me to get there by 11:30am, what time shoudl I leave Olympia? And how long should I estimate the getting-back time to be?
