So I went down to watertown last night, smoked half a jay [yah, yah, I know, I know.. but it was a party day.. ] and danced to some wicked good old-school techno.

It always amazes me how much my view of the world is influenced by my perspective. Like, there was a guy at Watertown wearing a ‘europe is for homos (with hearts instead of Os)’ shirt, which said on the back. At first, I thought it was a gay-bashing thing.. but then I realized, this guy was not displaying any animosity towards anyone – and then my DJ friend tells me he’s from one of the local crews.. and I realized, no, Sheer.. it’s funny… and then I smiled, and he smiled, and everyone seemed friendlier.

Totally about perspective.

If you think someone won’t like you – or is making a statement against you [not that I’m gay, mind you, but gaybashing makes me extrordinarily uncomfortable nonetheless] – then your reactions to their perceived view of you means they probably won’t. And conversely.

Anyway, so I talked to a bunch of people last night – like four or five, and I even remember some of their names. It was cool, if a bit different – I got the phone number of a very cheap camera operator who may or may not be any good, we shall see..

As always, I’m juggling too many eggs..

    I keep forgetting this is Seattle.. 😉 In many of the cities I have lived, gay-bashing (via T-shirts or otherwise) was a accepted standard behavior..
