#144: 21st Century Viking: Answering McGinn’s three questions

Music: internet jazz radio

Here is the link to my latest 21st Century Viking article entitled Answering McGinn’s three questions. The Mayor-Elect of Seattle, Mike McGinn, set out a youtube video asking anyone who was interested to answer three questions. This was my first 21st Century Viking post in over a month, so I wanted to ease back into it.
Why so long in between posts? Well, I guess the short answer would be that I didn't know grad school would be so hard. I mean, I heard it was going to be a switch but nothing could really prepare me for it. A lot of stuff in my life went up in the air, and in the process, I realized that the 21st Century Viking is one of the things that I wanted to keep. My old job, however, was not one of them. :-)

Honestly, right now I should be doing my work, and that work involves some freelance writing. I'm a writer now! I've been doing a lot of homework lately too, but I wanted to post this link and let you know that since I left my old job, I have so much more energy and I want to put some of that back into the athenaverse again, along with my new and improved HMTL skills. See you soon.

#143:A Report From Last Night's Hipster-Free KISS Concert

Music: KISS

Last night, an old friend and I went to see KISS at the Key Arena in Seattle. It became immediately obvious that there were almost no hipsters in attendance, which was quite refreshing. How could you be a hipster at a KISS concert? I say that it is impossible as KISS has, and always will be, completely un-ironic. The fans were just there to see KISS and to have a good, irony-free time while proudly proclaiming their allegiance in the KISS Army. The second-best moment of the night had to be when two guys dressed in full KISS costumes snuck behind the concession stand and posed for pictures with the concession workers. The best part, of course, was the KISS Army Patrol reunion. And seeing KISS, of course.
