The rise of the VoteBot Army

VoteBot: not a player, just crushes a lot.

VoteBot: not a player, just crushes a lot.

Oh. You haven’t heard?

First there was VoteBot. She was tough. She could do it all. And she did. All of it. But 2009’s a new year, with new challenges, and VoteBot is looking for some back up. And so she’s planning. And she’s building. And she’s recruiting.

For the VoteBot Army.

Yes. The VoteBot Army. We said it. And you can be a part of it. To enlist, just contact the Bus – info(at)washingtonbus(dot)org – and tell us how many people you’re going to get to vote in the August 18th primary.

There’s no wrong answer. You can do it. Tell yourself: I am a VoteBot. Yo soy VoteBot. Join us. Join the VoteBot Army. We’re coming.

And now, VoteBot versus the devil. Dance-off!

Feels good to talk about home

It’s 110% official. There’s been a new Seattle anthem since last year – Jake One’s “Home,” featuring local legends Vitamin D, Maneak B, and Ish (aka Butterfly from Digable Planets). And guess what? Now there’s a video to go with it. Talk about hometown pride, this is full of it. Watch it, and welcome to Seattle.

Art is for lovers

Just like Virginia. Anyway. We love us some street art here at the Bus, and we like the local blogs that keep tabs on the latest goodness. For your perusing pleasure, please enjoy Bald Man Is Watching (named after the semi-ubiquitous wheat paste/sticker spotted in various locales), To Fear It Is To Know It (a window into the brain of local street art guru Damion Hayes) and Seattle Graffiti (uh, duh).

An interesting reinterpretation of art and public spaces.

Hot new goodness

Sometimes months go by, and the good music world seems to have dried up. And then a song pops onto your radio at nine pm on a Tuesday evening, and everything gets better. Would ya believe this exact thing happened last night? Well, it did. And the song that blew this Bus’s mind out of the water was The Field’s “Everybody’s got to learn sometime.” Check those chord changes! And sustained notes! It’s the kind of song you want to swim in. Enjoy.
