re: Detroit— I feel like that city has so many real and pressing issues that it would be incredibly rude of me to try and depict it in any romanticized light.

re: Seattle, haha I was thinking Seattle but thought perhaps that was too obvious. Maybe not. Also, as someone who likes studying cities, it always felt like Seattle lacked the obvious historical footprint of places like Chicago, so I’m unsure on using it. I might, though, the assumed character of the city fits what I am looking for.

Seattle is definitely younger than a lot of cities in the US, but there are some really old places that are pretty nifty, like Pioneer Square. It’s mostly food and shopping now but a lot of the buildings are leftover from when they used to have a wood mill and a ship yard. It used to be the last pit stop before Vancouver when people were heading up to Canada/Alaska in search of gold. 

There is also the Seattle Totem Pole, which has the best story ever. 

Even though totem poles were not originally carved by people living around the Puget Sound, references to totem poles can be found in many places around Seattle. For example, the Tlingit pole standing in Pioneer Square was acquired in 1899 by a group of Seattle businessmen who took a trip to Southeast Alaska and stopped in the Tlingit village of Tongass. They assumed that the village had been abandoned and proceeded to remove a large pole that was taken back to Seattle and erected in Pioneer Square. In fact, the Tongass people were just away at their fishing camps, and when they returned, they were unhappy to find the pole stolen. The thieves had been observed and their actions were reported to Governor Brady in Alaska. The Tongass people asked for the return of the pole or payment for it. After lengthy negotiations, a payment was made, but the pole remained in Seattle. This pole was damaged by fire in Pioneer Square in 1938, and a replica was carved by a group of Tlingit carvers from Ketchikan as part of a Civilian Conservation Corps project. This replica pole still stands in Pioneer Square in Seattle today.

The thing to note is that while they did eventually pay for the totem pole, it was only 1/4 of the tribe’s asking price. So in 1938 when the original was ruined by an arsonist, the city sent representatives to Tongass to ask the descendants of the original carvers to make a replica. Everyone agreed upon the going rate for a commissioned totem pole and Seattle makes the payment. But months go by, and then a year later, and still no totem pole. So they go back to the tribe, and are informed that what they actually did was finish paying for the original totem pole. They’re going to have to make another payment to get a new one. And what could Seattle do? The totem pole was a part of the city’s cultural heritage now, they needed to have one. So they paid. 

Also even the older buildings in Seattle are built on top of the town that used to be there, and there’s an underground tour that takes you through what remains of the city below.  It’s pretty cool.

We were at my grandparents’ house for Easter today, and my brother brought along the Nintendo Wii for our cousins to play
Only he forgot the sensor bar :T the thing that makes the wii-motes work and junk
Then he remembered this crazy myth he heard basically said if you light two candles, they act as a sensor bar.
I DON’T KNOW HOW
BUT IT TURNS OUT IT FUCKING WORKS.
So if you ever lose or break the sensor bar, and don’t mind your TV looking like an offering to Satan, I recommend candles :I

I’ll remember that for the next time my sensor bar stuffs up…

This also works with flashlights, in case you don’t have any candles handy. c:

The “sensor” bar doesn’t actually have any sensors. The sensors are in the Wii-mote. The sensor bar is actually just a line of infrared LEDs that an IR camera in the Wii-mote can see, which means you can substitute other IR sources, like candles and flashlights.

Science, hail Satan.
