In addition to Katie AND Cameron as writers for Yow Yow! I’ve also joined the blogging team. With Katie’s move to the Bay Area, Cameron and I will be covering Seattle to the best of our ability and keeping ya’ll updated. Also the PR Specialist, I can be found writing posts about music, movies, and sporadic findings on the interwebz.
When I’m not working my day job, I can be found reading, looking up the news for Yow Yow! coverage, and playing various sports around Seattle, in addition to going on adventures with my friends, that is.
Thanks for welcoming me to the team!

Readers, were you like us and watched music videos incessantly in the 90s? I remember waking up early and rushing home after school to catch VH1 and MTV. There’s something to be said for the ability to tell a story in 3-4 minutes while tailoring imagery to song.
Amos Lee nails it in Flowers directed by Mike Healey and Kelly Goeller. The concept of the video is stop motion using only white paper. With two weeks of creating the world and two weeks of filming, this video reminds me how much artistry is involved in making music videos and reinforces my love for them.
It’s been awhile since I’ve come across a new design that has stopped me dead in my tracks. And as I write this, I remember that I just posted that “99 Problems” project a couple days ago.
Brooklyn-based artist Monica Ramos crafted these creative illustrations called “Comfort Food” and their so incredibly quirky and funny to me that I had to feature it.

There’s a quirky new Tumblr out right now that calls out Instagram users for using the #nofilter hashtag when they actually did use a filter. The person monitoring this page must
a) know their ish about Instagram
b) have a lot of time on their hands
To be honest though when I see the #nofilter hashtag on my feed, I’m just like “who cares?” Before Instagram, people would just use digital cameras and no one would say #nophotoshop.
Check out the Tumblr here.
Good morning! I hope all of you had a lovely 4th of July yesterday. I stopped by my co-worker’s BBQ before heading to Seattle and watching the fireworks from her rooftop! While we were there, a few of us reminisced about last year’s 4th of July firework fail in San Diego. Anyone remember this?!
From our rooftop in Seattle! Best view in the house :)
It was nice to be back in Seattle again for the 4th.
This guy. Really likes his job. Really.
This happened today. A Wendy’s employee was photographed eating ice cream directly from the machine. Now, yes – this is something we all probably dreamed of as children, but never thought was possible. However, I’d like to revert back to that Pitch Perfect quote in which Rebel Wilson’s character Fat Amy says:
I sometimes have a feeling I can do crystal meth, but then I think, mmm… better not.
Well, this is one of those times. This employee may have had inhibitions about eating the ice cream from the machine (like so many before him) but in this case, he should’ve just let this go. Oh social media…how you influence others.
The name of the employee and the location of the franchise is not known as of right now and Wendy’s has not released a statement, but let’s be real – that will come out tomorrow.
More like fired for prank.
This Taco Bell employee was recently fired for snapping a photo of him licking the franchise’s taco shells while working and posting it online. Is it time for people to take social media etiquette classes now?
Scratch that – I mean this isn’t just a social media issue, it’s a health issue above anything else, but c’mon he had to know this was coming.
Taco Bell released this statement today in regards to terminating the employee for this scandalous photo.
Taco Bell released a statement on Tuesday that the employee is in the process of being terminated from his employment.
Our franchisee is responsible for the employment and conduct of his restaurant’s employees and he has informed us that he immediately suspended the employee shown in the photo and is in the process of terminating his employment. The employee who took the photo no longer works there. As we complete our investigation we will work with our franchisee to implement any additional action we find appropriate to address this situation and ensure it never happens again.
Teachers – all over the world…or just in the Seattle area – please stop by your local Cupcake Royale for a free scope of ice cream tomorrow. You deserve it!
*Out of respect for today’s tragedy, Yow Yow will not post the rest of the day – please just spend the day reaching out to your loved ones.
