What the what?

Oh, well hello there. Welcome to my blog/photos/mess of a site. You may have arrived here via a couple of different domains. My long-time primary site has been Slightlynorth.com; hosted by Tumblr for the last few years. It started as an e/n site back in 1998. That was before we had powerful self publishing tools and CMS applications. The few of us with sites like this were all hand coding everything on the site, including the posts themselves (uphill in the snow both ways). I remember the time that I would have to put in my own <BR> tags just to start a new paragraph. <BR>

<BR>

So anyway, don’t have to do that anymore. In fact, things are amazingly easier now. One can point their domain to a new location, setup WordPress with a nice looking design, and import all previous posts from the previous location in less than 2 hours. And the domain DNS isn’t even the longest part of that process anymore.

 

I guess I got the itch to get this thing started up again after working with Chris on his podcast site (Life is a Party!!) this week. I made me remember how much I love blogging/writing and sharing photos. I figure since I have a couple of domains now, a cheap host, and the ability to do it, I might as well not waste the opportunity. With that, I have removed Slightlynorth.com from Tumblr, imported all of my posts from there to here (and they look like crap, but whatever), pointed the domain to here, and will be combining it all under the flag of Static in the Sound. I love the site name, and this all fits into the original purpose of the site; Seattle, music, food, etc.

 

I’m super excited to get this going again!

The Fanciest Vegan Meal in Seattle

Canlis - 03

 

It is no secret that Canlis is Seattle’s best fine dining restaurant. What may surprise you is how accommodating they can be towards vegans with just a little bit of notice. My wife and I recently celebrated 12 years of marriage and decided Canlis would be an excellent spot to mark the occasion. Thanks to Anika over at Vegan Score for the hot tip, we made a reservation for the private Cache Room and mentioned we would be having the vegetarian tasting menu vegan style. They were more than happy to accommodate us!

Sushi Detox at Billy Beach in Ballard

Mmmm Sushi!

I don’t remember now how exactly it got started, but a group of friends of mine and I started this a year or so ago. We called it “Sushi Detox” after a few of us were traveling and eating too many meals of easy-to-find-but-full-of-oil-and-salt foods. Somehow we decided that sushi would be the perfect way to get together for a Welcome Back Home meal that wasn’t deep fried. Continue reading…
