The tone and inferences in Pacific Lutheran University's "did you REALLY mean to save KPLU?" letter really rankle. It's like they're angry that listeners organised to save KPLU as an independent station at no cost to PLU.



Were we CONFUSED? Really? C'mon. 'Are you SURE you want this group to have YOUR INFO?! REALLY? Were you IN ERROR?' Spreading FUD - Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt - much, PLU?

I am highly unimpressed. It feels like a last-second hit on Friends of KPLU/Save KPLU, like they're looking for a reason not to sell to the community and instead sell to KUOW, which will shut down KPLU's news department and who mostly want it for the transmitters, to serve as repeaters for their corporate NPR feed station.

And I don't even know why PLU would do this, unless it's personal. Whose ego got bruised at Pacific Lutheran University?

In case their FUD manages to confuse people, here's SaveKPLU's website. There's still plenty of time to donate and help buttress this community buyout.

Anna and I went to the Night Vale live theatre show last night at the Neptune, in my old hood, the U. District. I hadn’t been to the Neptune since they turned it back into a stage theatre, and I’m glad to say it works really well.

I’m not going to review it, per se; I’ll just say it was a lot of fun, with a lot of William Castle-esque elements – particularly – in one section that I really enjoyed.

My camera did a terrible job with the spotlighting, but have some cosplay pictures from the queue, a couple of the least bad stage shots, and a panorama I call Appropriate Theatre is Appropriate.

We queued up 45 minutes ahead of doors (in a bad spot, in the wind), and got good seats; totally worth it, even if I had to run over to the bookstore and grab a clearance XXL fleece sweatshirt that I’ll be wearing a lot because damn this thing is comfortable.

Anyway, if you get a chance, and you like Welcome to Night Vale, the stage show is a nice night out. Go, and enjoy.

So remember when I went EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE RADIO INTERVIEW! last month? The station manager was kind enough to send me the audio! Thanks again to transmissionfm 88.3 Auckland, host Doloras La Picho of Is This the Future?, and Daphne Lawless of the darkwave band Vostok Lake for hooking me up. I had a great time, thanks for having me on!
