Pearl Jam's newest album "Backspacer" will be released on September 20th. Their tour for this album begins here in Seattle on the 21st (our 13th anniversary !) and I can't wait. It's about time, boys. Here's a short clip produced by Three on the Tree and directed by Danny Clinch about the upcoming release: (thanks Moh !)

It's a Land Camera 210, made between 1967 - 1969. He used it while in the Vietnam War. Everything was in fantastic condition - the bulbs were still intact, the flash unit was hardy used and the black leather case was mint. "You really want this thing ?" he asked. My ear-to-ear smile answered that. I was overjoyed at his gracious offer. So another addition to my Polaroid camera collection...thanks Pop !!

We just got home from the most spectacular meals out we've had in a LONG time. We went to Spring Hill in West Seattle - owned by Mark Fuller, who is a true culinary genius. Not to mention a James Beard award nominee and a nice guy.
I was too excited and forgot to take a photo of our appetizer. It was black squid linguini with clam butter and chilies. Delicious. Then came our entrees - Dan had the wagyu sirloin with a cheddar thyme popover and an arugula salad. I had rainbow trout with summer squash bread, brown butter and toasted hazelnuts.
We ended with a chocolate tart with caramelized bananas and salted peanut ice cream. Too die for.
side note: only had my phone with me - no real camera = not so great photos. wish I could have done better justice to the beautiful food !
