This community is very informative.
I dont know if I should introduce myself first but I would like to reach out if anyone is listening.
I have been playing music for several years in bands here and there. I moved to seattle about a year ago giving up alot of friends and my old band back in Rhode Island. I would very much like to start a band or at the very least play music and make some new friends here. Again I dont know if I should go into details but briefly I will state that I have played several musical genres, and that I live in capital hill. If your interested feel free to reply and regardless if you are a musician or not I am always interested in meeting and talking to new people.
I've done a couple of searches here on LJ to see if there's a community focused on attending, reviewing and discussing theater in town and haven't been able to find any. Does anyone here know of such a community? There's nothing listed on the Seattle-related communities list that I could tell.
If no one knows of such a thing, would anyone besides me be interested in such a community here? Show of hands? If I see more than, say, 5, I'll launch one and announce it here.
anybody had any experience trying to sell jewelry? i am trying to get rid of a ring that is gold w/many, many small diamonds on it. i do not want to pawn it because i am looking to get rid of it, not get a loan on it. and i was told pawn shops won't give you much for selling an item to them as opposed to pawning it. i am not expecting to get a whole lot for it, but i should be able to get something i can live with. i've looked online for buyers and brokers but can't find many websites w/good info and most don't even have websites. i was hoping someone has done this and can point me in a good direction. thank you!
I have a Motorola flip phone, but the joint has broken. Does anybody know of a place (preferably downtown or Belltown-ish) that does cell phone repairs? Thanks.
Is there a place in Seattle where I can buy plane tickets in person (rather than online) with united airlines? I looked on google and the memories.
Bizarre series of incident... the bookstore where I work, Queen Anne Books (1811 Queen Anne Ave N), is being pranked by a rabbit. Not a real rabbit, of course, but someone who clearly has a rabbit fixation. Started about a week ago with the discovery of The Joy of Cooking Rabbits sitting on one of our tables. Since then, we have discovered on the shelves of our store books such as Da Bunny Code, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Rabbits, When Bad Things Happen To Good Bunnies and many other lovely books. They're all old Reader's Digest books with squares cut out of the inside pages and treasures tucked inside, but the flycovers are really amazing. Very well done. In addition, we've gotten 2 letters from Y. Trabet with nothing but pictures of people in bunny suits inside of the envelopes. Oh, and of course each book is "ex libris Y. Trabet" and some of them are "written" by Y. Trabet (except those written by "authors" such as John Steinbunny, who brings you The Rabbits of Wrath.
We have yet to catch the bunny prankster, but we are keeping all the books behind the shelf. Anyone heard of anything similar going on around town?
I've got three tickets to the Switchfoot concert on Monday (Oct 11) that I can't use. It's at the Moore Theater at 7pm. I paid $18.50+7.30 (Ticketmaster charge) back in August when they first went on sale. I'd like to recover as much of the money I paid as possible, I'd like to get the full price I paid for each ticket but it's negotiable. If interested, you can email me at krismith[AT]u.washington.edu.
