A University of Washington student was arrested on Saturday afternoon after writing comments online that he intended to be “the next Elliot Rodger” and he would “make sure I kill only women.” Keep reading »
A surprise performance by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis would get me excited, sure. And that’s probably what a lot of audience members were feeling at the Experience Music Project Museum in Seattle (where Macklemore’s coat from the “Thrift Shop” video hangs in the collection).
But folks all over — including Seth Rogen — are scratching their heads now that pictures have emerged of Macklemore (real name: Ben Haggerty) performing in a costume that looks like an ugly Jewish stereotype. Keep reading »
The Duluth Trading Company recently used Google search data to figure out which American cities were most smitten with flannel. Unsurprisingly, the Pacific Northwest flannel capital of Seattle/Tacoma claimed the top spot, although Portland somehow didn’t even crack the top 10 (color this native Portlander nonplussed!).
