Forever Moore

Type only logo

The Moore Theatre is the oldest operating theatre in Seattle. Built in 1907, the theatre has played a long and vital role in Seattle’s cultural arts history.

Everyone has performed at The Moore including Ella Fitzgerald, Pink Floyd, Frank Zappa, The New York Dolls, Nirvana, Mudhoney, Soundgarden, Henry Rollins, Lewis Black, Sonic Youth, Anthony Bourdain, The White Stripes and Jeff Bridges. We could keep going, but we think you’ve got the picture.

After 106 years, it’s time for a facelift. The Forever Moore Campaign will raise funds to replace seats, patch and paint the interior, improve heating and cooling systems, and improve the auditorium for smaller productions. To find out how you can be a part of making “Seattle’s perfect little theatre” even better, please visit stgpresents.org/moore.

Not a bad logo either. ;+)

Ron Finley: Designer. Gardener. Collector.

Portrait of Ron Finley in a garden

Artist and designer Ron Finley couldn’t help but notice what was going on in his backyard. “South Central Los Angeles,” he quips, “home of the drive-thru and the drive-by.” And it’s the drive-thru fast-food stands that contribute more to the area’s poor health and high mortality rate, with one in two kids contracting a curable disease like Type 2 diabetes.

Finley’s vision for a healthy, accessible “food forest” started with the curbside veggie garden he planted in the strip of dirt in front of his own house. When the city tried to shut it down, Finley’s fight gave voice to a larger movement that provides nourishment, empowerment, education — and healthy, hopeful futures — one urban garden at a time.

“Gardening is the most therapeutic and defiant act you can do, especially in the inner city. Plus, you get strawberries.”

“We gotta flip the script on what a gangsta is — if you ain’t a gardener, you ain’t gangsta.”

This is a super inspiring and frustrating TED talk. It’s worth the 10 minutes of your day to take this in.  CHECK IT OUT

What design and The Sopranos have in common

Cast of the Sopranos

Here is a brilliant and funny post by Michael Bierut on how everything he knows about design was learned from The Sopranos. This was written the day after The Sopranos ended back in 2007.
