Well, at least relatively schnockered. We all had a fine time at last Thursday’s CIMS (Coalition of Independent Music Stores) event at Seattle’s own Triple Door—Kinski, the Helio Sequence and Fruit Bats played, The Postal Service got their gold record, and the staff got two drink tickets apiece good for ANY DRINK IN THE HOUSE. I had 32-year Oban scotch on the rocks, m’self. Shawn, pictured in photo number two at bottom left, preferred a Mai Tai. I’m not sure what everyone else was drinking, but we all looked snappy. Here, Ben & Jimmy peek their li’l noses over the prize!And here’s some of us, posing holiday-style for the camera.Here’s TPS and pal Tony, thinking really, really hard. About something. Ice cream, perhaps? Or giraffes? Or….success?
