The Blink 182 show was amazaVIBES!
I didn’t have a ticket but I showed up outside and when the doors would open huuuge clouds of BLINK VIBES wooshed out into the patio of Key Arena in Seattle Center. The Mariners were playing last night too, and I was at SafeCo drumming when my buddy the ginger pedicab driver told me about the show. I’m pumped that I hit up the Blink 182 show. Not to be missed, oh no.
Then this morning I was checking out the show on the Instagram feed, it really tied together my random outside encounters with the whole picture. Like this kid who was pretty upset for being “the only one who got kicked out for crowd-surfing” He wanted to send a message to his friend inside using my facebook acct. I guess his phone was still inside. I couldn’t help because my droid is a hot spot only device. And there was no Wifi outside the show.
I saw the same crowd from the stage this morning on Instagram, and of course as they emptied out into Seattle Center I was in it, I wanted a shirt, but the merch tables were all inside and guarded pretty fiercely– I guess. Enough to keep me away at least, as it were.
Heck Yeah Blink Lit Up Seattle Center with their fans and and electric current pumping out of the the Key Arena. I encountered many crowds last night, and pedicab drivers. Seattle was poppin, it was good bike riding. And…
There are a lot of people that live on the street here in Seattle. Copious sidewalk campers, and hella tent villages. It’s actually….. yeah. We have to help them. Ideas and Activation. There are madd resources. The Gates Foundation is here, and so much more. This morning I was riding around in Occidental Square— I have a crash spot in Pioneer Square so I can be out and about downtown (quite possibly my fav part of the city) hella early– and, there was a free outside store event in the Square with all these clothes and bananas and bedding, and such– nice stuff. And good branding and signage. No doubt a well funded community event, I rolled up and was like ‘sweet jackets on that rack’. But the line was all around the square. And the vibe was a little spooky too. So I kept moving. But yea, MUCH need here, much help and further to go…
And then this morning at Zeitgeist coffee, this brother was standing outside the cafe screaming, first we couldn’t see him, then he came into view. It was so early at that point that I could imagine practically seeing a big black dragon, filling half the street that he was screaming at. And then he moved on, and croissants were served and the beat goes on. We’re all in this together, this is how your garden grows.
