Hear the Kim Jong-nam Assassination Story as Never Before

Occurrences as strange and high profile as last year’s assassination of the former North Korean heir to the throne, Kim Jong-nam, thankfully don’t happen that often. A world war was started thanks to a similar assassination in the past. Kim Jong-nam’s death hasn’t led to anything worse like Franz Ferdinand’s assassination led to the first world war yet, but the story was still so interesting and so incredibly strange at the same time.

Celebrating Growth with presents Supporting Sound

At the beginning of November, I took a Lyft ride and like all rides I take, I chat it up with the driver about any old thing of interest. On this trip we were stuck in traffic and we started talking about the city of Seattle. The driver said that he’d lived in Seattle for more than 30 years and that he didn’t like how the city was growing.

Live Office Music for Seattle Tech Companies

Workplaces are much more casual than they used to be. We wear jeans everyday, there’s beer on tap, there are ping pong tables, and some even have slides. Now there’s live music too.

Porter & Joe Cocker: Red Hook Beer and Music Pairing

Can it be Spring yet??! I’m so ready for it. Still, usually I’m a seasonal kind of guy when it comes to my drinks. I like whisky in winter and gin in summer. I like red wine in the cold weather and white in the summer sun. I enjoy a pale ale in the spring and a stout in the fall. But as we wind down out of winter looking (longingly) to spring, I’m enjoying a porter with equally longing music.

The Magic Stone: A Fairy Tale

Stories have an enormous influence on culture and vice versa. We may not think about it sometimes but it’s true. It’s why we have certain superstitions, beliefs and feelings about a specific situation. We’ve all been brought up with some sort of story that serves as a piece of advice about everyday life and how to deal with it or how to behave. These come in the form of nursery rhymes, campfire stories and, of course, the fairy tale.

Be Patriotic and Celebrate Black History Month

We’re still not there. In the 21st century, we in America are still not to the point where everyone is truly equal. Where no one person has an advantage over the other because of a superficial reason like skin color. It’s a shame really especially since so much of our culture has been built by black Americans.
