stuff fresh jess likes: food and controversy

just six months out the gate with the insanely popular (and controversial) blog, "stuff white people like", christian lander and friends have released stuff white people like: the definitive guide to the unique taste of millions. LOL!

last night at the hideout, a few of my favorite people, some other random seattleites and i had the pleasure of having dinner with christian and friends, thanks to kim ricketts book events (i told you. get on her fun list now!) onepot provided a delicious english meal while we engaged in conversation and listened to a couple of short reads from the book. i was already a big fan of the blog, but after having met the humble and truly awesome author(s), i think "stuff white people like" might be tops on my list. i can't imagine having millions reading your blog every day and responding so passionately to it (both negatively and positively.) you haters know this is supposed to be funny right? even at dinner, i think we might have offended some of the folks having a drink at the bar who didn't have a clue about the blog. lighten up a bit, geez!

p.s. christian signed my book: "jess & jacob: according to #11, your children will be annoying." :)

this article is just fantastic:

seattle p-i.com: 'Voice of the Sonics,' Calabro jumps off magic carpet ride

i've been reading lots of reader comments on news articles and blogs since news broke a week ago that our beloved sonics are leaving us. what i really like about this article is kc's true honesty - he holds nothing back about how he feels, and that's what makes him such a treasure. i know you hear "good golly miss molly, my oh my" in your head right now...just nod and smile :)

what i don't like is how the guise of the internet brings out the severely unclassy. this is not just about the anti-sonics haters, i mean haters in general. lots of them come out of the woodwork long enough to say "good riddance sonics, now take the M's and the seahawks with you" or "the sonics never meant anything anyway." everybody's got their own opinion, i understand that, but ignorance just gets to me sometimes. you know what, this situation sucks, yes. we lost a pro sports franchise and there are many options at which/who to point the blame to. but what makes some people so mad about the sonics that they're so happy to see them leave? what is it about this NBA franchise that's making your life so miserable it inspires you to leave nasty comments on the internets? i'm sorry, are you one of the many employees who now have to make the choice to move to the armpit of america (OKC), or look for another job? are you one of the children or part of one of the families who were helped out by one of the sonics/storm's many community outreach programs? what people don't stop to think about are the ramifications of a major employer leaving the city, the neighborhood effects of losing a major tenant at key arena, etc. - because it's so much easier to complain, bitch & moan about how much you hate something right?

you can hate all you want, but you can't deny that the sonics are a piece of the pie that makes seattle such a great place to live - and losing them will definitely have an effect. think about that!

p.s. thanks for keeping it classy calabro
