I ain't a hater, I'm a disliker

The other day I did a stroll through Capital Hill to see what was happening in the galleries up there. Of course I was refused the opportunity to take a photo of the work on display at Goods, this place seems to think it exists outside of the community or something. Whatever... I decided that I should check out the Charles Glaubitz show at Blue Bottle. Holy sh#t this is the real deal. I really loved the work here, definately the best I have seen this summer. I totally suggest seeing this, maybe even buying something because the work is totally underpriced. It's funny regarding pricing in Seattle, artists seriously have to undercut themselves to make any sales and even then they struggle to get sales. Whats with that? any way here are a couple flix from the Glaubitz show. As for the work by Iosefatu Sua, Peekaboo, and Angry Woebots at Goods............ sorry guys.

Yo! Sorry you didn't get any shots at GOODS. I didn't realize they treated homies that way. Maybe they thouoght they were protecting the rights of the artists? I usually get nothing but love when I go there, and I don't buy shoes from them.

yeah i suppose they may have thought they were protecting folks, But I know i am not the only person that feels those vibes from them. It aint the end of the world or nothing but I felt like venting a bit.

The fellas at Goods, are really good natured folks, Nin, Steve, Paul, Kosher, Schweaty etc. all have done alot for the skate scene especially ie. design and maintain skateparks, reping Seattle with local art on Manic Skateboards (remember the Jackson St. Jazz Series or the Landmark Series with dope graphics of Seattle landmarks like The Hat and Boots in Georgetown?), or The Push Project (one of THE best art shows in Seattle during the past however long...). When you have the "coolest" shop in town people wanna get a piece of it, ie. BITE IT! COPY IT! RECREATE IT! Look how many wanna be Rudy's Barber Shops there are around town as a perfect example. All those guys have worked super hard to set up and maintain a dope shop, so who can blame them from being protective of their ish...
Maybe they aren't on everyones nuts the minute they walk in the door but they can't be faulted for their contributions...
Remember it's Seattle homie , where everyone is to cool for school...(this town is notorious for being cold as ice to newcomers, not saying you are new jack it's obvious you've been doing your thing around here for awhile... don't even get me started on that one, cause you don't want to hear me rant about waaaack Seattlites)
Whooo anyhow I'll bust their chops about not letting someone give them a little luv aka publicity with a couple photos on their blog...
And by the way the name is Peetz not Peet you left out my Z on the Cut Kulture site...
Nice stuff on the site and blog, good lookin' out!
See you at the Castle Me In party on Sat.. I look forward to meeting you, Mr. LeMerde speaks of you very highly.

I definately understand not wanting to lose what you got but you have to stay real. Fronting as if you have the "Coolest" shop in town does not make it so. For me what makes a place cool is not hype or any stuff like that, it's how i feel when I leave . If I feel like shit ... well then I am going to tell people about my experience in a negative light. I do understand all the great things Nin has done to shed some exposure on Seattles skate scene, in fact we are currently working on an interview for the 'stash.
Thanks for all the input on this, apparently people have opinions on this matter

Yeah everyone should speak their mind on what rubs them the wrong way...
People need to remember the old adage:
A happy customer tells a couple people about your shop, and unhappy customer tells EVERYONE...
Whomever made you feel like shit when you left Goods needs to ease up.
