There are a couple things that we are plotting to see this time around while in Seattle. One is the Science Fiction Experience and the other is the Experience Music Project. The word ‘Experience’ must now, by law appear in any Seattle tourist attraction, it would seem.
We visited Archie McPhee’s which is a most excellent waste of time and money. Monkey with fez has been acquired, along with a load of other crap, like a loose old-school telephone handset that will make a great microphone for crappy podcasting, or maybe I’ll have to make the handset for my mobile phone that I want… Photos of the crap I’ve acquired will appear in the next couple days.
Sadly, we will miss the Elvis Invitationals
which they describe as follows;
2005 Elvis Invitationals
Seattle’s Amatuer[sic] Elvis Contest
We’re looking for a few good Elvii !
Dress up and sing an Elvis tune with the fabulous Memphis Mafia band! Over $1,000 worth of great prizes waiting to be won!
Plus, special performance by top professional Elvis impersonators, Night of the Living Elvis!
