1) Go ahead, stop believin' -- Journey might be done making albums.
The members of Journey say they might be done recording new albums. Their last record, Eclipse, didn’t sell very well, and now they’re asking themselves, what do we care? Keyboardist Jonathan Cain says they can get along just fine on their classics. “We have a great catalogue here. We’ve got a lot of songs that we're not even playing. So, we're like, 'What's the point of makin' a new CD right now?'" Well, it does give concertgoers a chance to head out to use the bathroom and buy a beer.
No matter what happens, they'll keep touring, because they found such an awesome lead singer to replace Steve Perry. And beginning today, you can see his saga in a new movie: Don’t Stop Believin’: Everyman’s Journey. It’s the rags to riches story of Arnel Pineda, who went from poverty in Manila, in the Phillipines to replacing Steve Perry as the lead singer of Journey after the band discovered him on YouTube singing in a cover band.
The movie has a week-long run at the SIFF Cinema Uptown on Queen Anne in Seattle, and it’ll also be available starting tomorrow on most on-demand services . . . .check with your provider. It looks pretty cool.
2) Hey, this isn't just a crappy old doll -- it's a crappy old antique doll
You know, MOHAI, Seattle's Museum of History and Industry, is in its new home on South Lake Union . . .and Saturday is Bring Your Artifact to MOHAI Day. Bring in your historic artifact, photograph, document or piece of complete junk and experts will help you figure out what you’re dealing with. They say they’re not doing appraisals, so it’s not exactly like Antiques Road Show on PBS, but they can tell you if you’ve got something that’s worth something or not. And by the way, they specifically say no firearms or large furniture allowed. So don't even think about trying to haul in your prized vintage mahogany Civil War musket cabinet, okay?
3) You have been warned: 8 ways your clothes could be dangerous to your health
Do you have big weekend plans? Maybe getting all dressed up and going out? Keep in mind this list that I found – 8 ways your clothes could be dangerous to your health. For instance -- and I think this would be mostly for the ladies -- thongs can cause urinary tract and vaginal infections.According to this article:
Along with being painful and annoying, it turns out that these undergarments can harbor bacteria in the most unwelcome of places. You should go for full cotton underpants, especially when you’re sleeping, to decrease the chances of infection.
Sexy! There's lots more -- belts that are too tight (especially after a big meal -- I think that one's for us dudes), skinny jeans, too-heavy earrings, and pointy high heels. Before you do any damage, check out the whole list at Huffington Post.
Can you blame us for sticking with fleece and Gore-tex around here?
