All of the work gone into organizing Logo Unlimited presents Supporting Sound was totally worth it. The night brought together the business community with the local arts and music communities to celebrate Seattle growth and it was truly a blast!
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.
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.
