Wanted: Milk truck, makeup artist for shoot in Bellevue this weekend

Do you have a white boxy truck that could double as a "milk truck," especially when decorated with this sign --

"Cookies for Sale" is a SAG project shooting on HD by award-winning filmmaker Wes Kim. The film has guaranteed distribution on 35mm as a short film to be shown with features at Northwest Film Forum and other regional theaters.

We need a milk truck for our shoot in Bellevue this Saturday and Sunday -- does your vehicle fit the bill? We also need a makeup artist! Please direct any leads to Thanks!

photographers in seattle!

I need to find a photographer in the Seattle area to take pictures of me and my fiance. The photographer has to be really really GOOD... I'm not sure how to explain what I mean by that, but I think you know what I mean... someone artistic and hip, I guess, even though I hate those words.

oh and p.s. It's not actually for a wedding, it's just for the announcement type things that we're going to be sending out to our friends and family. We're not actually even having a wedding; we're going to elope!

room needed

The good news is the economy is booming. The bad news is the rentals are almost non-existent at this point. We've checked all appropriate sites. My friend is moving from out of state to go to grad school at UW and is looking for a room in cap. hill, queen anne, fremont, or anywhere else if he gets desperate enough, and he needs this room to be available January 1st or a few days prior to. Any leads? Like minded (ie educationally driven, but not too dorky) individuals preferred, if there's room for preference, which there probably isn't.


Music stores

I feel like giving my money to a local music instrument store tomorrow rather than Guitar Center. Is there one in particular that I should pay a visit to? I'm going to be in the downtown area tomorrow (and I'm there a lot), so that would be optimal, but anywhere in Seattle is good.

I'd like a personal recommendation, as I'd really like to start a good relationship with a local music instrument shop. One with more than just guitars would be great (for example, I need to buy a drum machine), but an awesome guitar store would be great too.

Any suggestions?

Are there any places on the Ave that will serve teriyaki with fried rice instead of white rice? Apparently, every place that has fried rice AND teriyaki on the menu refuses to substitute white rice with fried rice, even when offered to pay extra. Please advise.

Back story: huzzband went to five places on the ave today in search of fried rice with teriyaki and nobody would do it even though they all had both teriyaki and fried rice on the menu. Lol.

Gift Boxes?

I've been looking around downtown and out to Storables, and different paper shops, and can't for the life of me find a place (or think of one) that sells plain cardboard two-piece gift boxes. What want to be able to pick up is something like this:

Of course, I could order it from that site,, but I didn't want 50 of them, and I'd prefer to be able to have it before the weekend.

I'm putting together packages to mail that include samples of my art portfolio, and a dvd of my demo reel. I wanted a cardboard 2 piece box, much like a board game, or retro robot box that you'd find at the Red Balloon Company, or Archie McPhee, which I'd make my own retro sticker/cover for the whole package.

Even one of those boxes like you get shirts in would work well too, as long as the dimensions were close to 8 5/8"x 5 5/8"x 1 3/8". And I'd like it the thin cardboard, not corrugated.

What other stores might carry something like this?

Hey, Seattle...are you an aspiring writer? Pumped by NaNoRiMo? Love to geek out with literary types?
