Went to a hardcore leather bar after the show named Cuffs - really random but fun. Befriended 2 fantastic people named Michael and Bubba today. Very real, down to earth, and OPEN. Bubba changed his name at about 16, I believe, from Michael to Bubba... just to paint a picture - he is a very boyish skinny white kid from Montana. Did it as a lark and kept it up. Also said he has never lived in the same city for more than a year since he was 16 (21 now). Bubba rocks.
The bartender there, Christopher, had the raddest tattoo i have seen in AGES. A Freddie Mercury quote.
Don't you love it? He was a lot of fun to chat it up with.
There was all this talk about how Seattlites are passive aggressive. How they'll snub you out of nowhere. I thought it was funny. Everyone here seems very real and unpretentious to me - but that is coming from my LA standards perhaps? I still just can't get over how beautiful the city is. Can't wait to get back.
