Aceyalone at A Club tonight. Mini-Birds on a Wire fest in Pullman.

Posted on Tue, Sep 27, 2011 at 2:52 PM


The lyrically gifted ACEYALONE, also known as Eddie Hayes, collaborates with a lot of people. He began releasing solo albums in 1995 but has also had his hand in several projects, like Haiku D'Etat, the A-Team, and Project Blowed. He is also a founding member of the Los Angeles rap group Freestyle Fellowship (known for spearheading the sub-genre jazz rap) along with Myka 9, P.E.A.C.E., Self Jupiter and producer J Sumbi. The group, which last released an album in 2009, will be releasing a new one called The Promise on October 4th, via Decon Records. Catch Aceyalone as he heads a bill of four acts — maybe we’ll get lucky enough to see some collabs onstage, too? Details

Also, check out Day Two of the mini Birds on a Wire festival going on in Pullman. The headliners are the indie folk group Vetiver: 

They're joined by Spokane's Mon Cheri and Horse Thieves.

Mayor Verner announces Urban Design Award winners

Posted on Tue, Sep 27, 2011 at 1:45 PM


Spokane Mayor Mary Verner awarded the top Mayor's Urban Design Award of the year to the Spokane Public Market at last night's City Council meeting. The market, which was designed by Nystrom Olson Architecture and opened its first phase in June (it doesn't yet look as idyllic as this picture might suggest) was granted Verner's Mayor's Choice Award.

Urban Design Merit Awards were also given to a plan for Kendall Yards that includes parks, open space and access to the Centennial Trail; the new Shadle Park High School; and the LEED-certified Bissinger Building downtown.

The Design Review Board also threw bones to Davenport Hotel developer Walt Worthy, and Wells and Company developers Ron and Julie Wells (responsible for many of the old restored apartment buildings downtown). It even went so far as to bestow an award on a project that didn't even ask for recognition — the "Shrinking Lilac" award went to the Main Market Co-Op, on East Main Avenue.

Re: Drivers

Posted on Sat, Sep 24, 2011 at 8:34 AM

You're an idiot! We have high insurance rates in Spokane due to all the
dumb, careless drivers that unfortunately drive here. Yes, the southbound
flowing traffic is supposed to yield right-of-way to drivers turning right
on Sullivan from the off-ramp but many, many of them speed and drive into
the far-right lane to either turn right at the light or cuz they're dying
for a McDonald's meal. The city should have a stop at the corner of the
off-ramp so each driver hesitates to make sure some idiot isn't going to
merge into their lane and cause an accident. Just because people
are 'supposed to' doesn't mean they will, so please get smart and stop
being part of the many accidents in Spokane! Get to pumpin sweetie!

Jeers to whoever decided to tear up the street and sidewalks near Broadway
Elementary just as school started. Not only is the traffic revision
dangerous for various reasons, but you had to wait until the first week of
school? Now, all those children who walk to school have to manuever around
all the closed off, broken up sidewalks! Wouldn't summer have been a better
choice for this project? Cheers to tentative drivers who slow down and keep
an extra eye out for our children!

To the company that fired me for no apparent reason. Yes, I know that as a
temp worker you have the right to fire me at any time. Did I pee in the
wrong urinal? Did I eat lunch at the wrong table? Instead of having the
guts to talk to me and let me know there was a problem so it can be
corrected, you went the spineless cowardly route and called, no wait, you
didn't even do that, emailed the temp agency at the last possible minute
and did it that way. I busted my ass every day for you and this is the
thanks I get? Whoever did this, and I got a good idea who, have fun looking
at yourself in the mirror and calling yourself a decent human being.

Dog Owner

Posted on Sat, Sep 24, 2011 at 8:33 AM

I saw you walk into the valley Home Depot. When I was done shopping I
noticed a panting dog sitting in a hot truck, in the sun with the window
barely cracked. As I sat in my vehicle, waiting to see how long it took the
owner to return, I wondered what kind of an idiot would do that! You were
in that the store for more than a couple of minutes. If you insist on
taking your dog to the hardware store, Big R and Montgomery Hardware
welcome well behaved, leashed dogs to shop with you. You belong in
a "kennel" or better yet, locked in a hot car wearing a fur coat! Now that
I had my say, please be more considerate of your best friend.

Freeway Spanner

Posted on Sat, Sep 24, 2011 at 8:33 AM

To the self-righteous spanner in the white pickup Westbound on I-90, coming
up to construction last Friday afternoon. The way you create and enforce
new laws is to go through Congress then join the police. Until then,
driving in both lanes (way before they actually merge) so that nobody
behind you can get past is neither your right nor your responsibility.

How is it possible that after everything I've done, you are still the best
friend I've ever had? I don't deserve to even have you in my life and yet
you still manage to do whatever is possible to put a smile on my face. Our
weekly Froyo dates keep me going and I'm so grateful to not have to suffer
the pain alone. A pain I single-handedly created on my own no less. Only
the strongest of men could endure what I put you through and not turn their
back and walk away. You are an incredible person and when this is all over,
you'll be the reason for me to better myself and make a change. You inspire
me. Lones sends her love and told me to tell you happy birthday. And that's
what I hope more than anything - for you to be happy. Love you always and

Uncaring Pet Parent

Posted on Sat, Sep 24, 2011 at 8:33 AM

who left his dog suffering in his hot (that's internal temperature) black
and green truck while he enjoyed leisurely shopping on the south hill,
Wednesday 9-14: You have no right to be the owner of an animal who depends
on you for its basic needs. It was 82 degrees outside when you adamantly
stated it "was not too hot", yet what you fail to realize is that even with
the windows cracked, it was at least 95 degrees (probably over 100) inside
your truck. You also fail to realize that your dog was barking and crying
uncontrollably while you carried on comfortably in an air conditioned
store, and only stopped when you exited the store and came into view. Your
dog was in that truck for at least 20 minutes, it was barking and crying
before I went in and after I came out. I waited at least 5-10 more minutes
before calling Crime Check. You have been reported to the authorities, and
I hope this opens up your eyes to the responsibilities you have to your
animal. Shame on you for being so uncaring!

mess up my head! Friday night, Hico Village Laundry. You: cute girl in
sweat pants. Me: old guy under hood of old, blue Subaru. You didn't stay
long and I missed my opportunity to explain it to you. Mothballs are
usually made of dichlorobenzene, a poison with mild neuro-toxic and
carcinogenic properties. It is also known to make people [worry too much].
Before I could get it together to explain it, you escaped out the side door
with your supportive dude in the small, white pick-up truck. If you don't
want to worry so excessively, get all the mothball smell out of your house.
One washing won't do it. Best regards.
