Bumbershoot 2014: Best single Bumbershoot day ever?

No need for a loping intro to this one. For future reference, this is what happened on Sunday, August 31st at the Seattle Center. For a slobbering, no-good-for-shore music fan of many decades like me, it gives full on braingasm to try to wrap my skull walnut around it. These blurbs will be reasonably tight […]

Bumbershoot 2014: the Saturday of your life

“It's never too late to have a happy childhood.”  ― Tom Robbins Play.  I am looking at the Bumbershoot 2014 schedule for the first time today. Just two days before it all comes down. It's not because I'm lazy, though I am that (sometimes). Or a procrastinator (all the damned time). I prefer to walk into […]

Timber! Music Festival 2014 Recap

Show Date: July 26, 2014

In case you missed out, here’s a recap of all the great happenings from this year’s Timber! Outdoor Music Festival: First, a bit about the setting. The festival took place in Tote-Mcdonald Park over in Carnation, which is just the right size for this festival. There were a good amount of attendees there, but it […]

With over 400 films playing the 40th Seattle International Film Festival, there was NO WAY I was going to be able to watch and write about what got me into those theater seats before the festival was over—or, more importantly, before they screened for the last time during it. Here’s a quick list of films […]

SIFF Review: The Family Picture Show


Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/elitol1/threeimaginarygirls.dreamhosters.com/wp-content/themes/pegasus/includes/theme-shortcodes.php on line 340

This program is a highlight of the festival every year: 12 diverse short films united only by their appropriateness for all ages. Most but not all are animated, but you certainly needn’t be a child or a parent of children to enjoy the suite. My 4-year-old daughter, 7-year-old son, and I went to see it […]

Sasquatch 2014, Day 3

Show Date: May 25, 2014

I have to admit, I kind of like the new Sasquatch schedule of Friday-Sunday instead of the old late Friday-Monday. It’s a little less tiring, and you still get the free travel day on Monday so you can stay out late at the party stages guilt free. With that said, onto the final day of […]

Sasquatch 2014, Day 2

Show Date: May 24, 2014

Saturday turned out to be the sunniest and hottest day of the weekend. It seemed that a good amount of the festival goers tended to skip the first few acts and the grounds didn’t start to really fill up until 4:00 or 5:00. Most of us however knew there was good music to be heard, […]

SIFF 2014: Week Three Highlights


Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/elitol1/threeimaginarygirls.dreamhosters.com/wp-content/themes/pegasus/includes/theme-shortcodes.php on line 340

SIFF 2014 is lurching along into its final week, and there’s still time to catch up on your cinema (over)consumption if you’ve yet to partake. I can’t protect you from the well-meaning but terrible pre-film bumpers imposed on audiences at each screening — the membership and Egyptian ones are particularly egregious, more so when viewed more than one time […]
