Seattle is nice, so there’s that.

Enjoying the Northwest

Reviewer Rob

I went for a nice bike ride today along the Puget Sound. It was near Ballard, I think. It’s been a long-time goal of mine to get here and see this place, a real remarkable wonder of nature. Although it was a warm, sunny day and everything was perfect I have to say I was almost underwhelmed. Seemed like I was at the shore of a large lake and not a part of the Pacific Ocean. I guess technically the Sound is perhaps a separate body of water. But I had to reach down and scoop up a handful of wet gravel here to smell if it’s salt water. This really didn’t seem like to mighty Pacific, it was so calm and peaceful. The news reports were saying that this was going to be the hottest day of the year.

I’m uploading a behind-the-scenes video or two of my photo shoot the other day with K, a local art model (she works as a Seattle-based traveling nude model and also paints from her own photography so she’s an artist/photographer/model). The two black and whites posted below are from the shoot in her downtown Seattle basement art studio workspace. The videos are being uploaded to the Members folder here for Premium high rollers, SO JOIN UP.

The Economics of Legal Weed

Cannabis Will Be Free

Yesterday was 4.20 🌬I was given this shirt in 2012 by a vendor when I worked at a dispensary for 3 weeks in Seattle. When Chase and I were making @wmrtwo we ran out of money from our investor during post production and I had to move to Seattle and grow medical marijuana to finish funding our movie. I went and worked at a dispensary to make sure I was completing my first grow cycle properly. This was back when I could sell my hydro flower for $240/oz or $640/qp at farmers markets around Washington state. I got out of it soon after weed was made recreationally legal and the prices growers could get dropped really fast. But we got all the money we needed for our movie so I quit growing and selling it. Then I moved to Portland to study physics 🌈 instant photo of me studying organic chemistry by @tmronin
