Archive for October, 2010

YES! October! Full of costume parties and candy and  lots of moments that make you go “Oh shit, I’m pretty sure this is how most horror movies start…”. If all of those exciting seasonal things weren’t enough, Seattle is swimming in musical talent this month. So, LOOK AT THIS. I can’t imagine anyone who wouldn’t benefit from taking a peek, not to toot my own horn or anything. As far as the horror movie thing goes, you’ll probably be fine. Just don’t hang out in groups where you’re the token black friend or engage in sexual acts in any dank forests after dusk.
