Melissa Longfellow recreating Bellingham’s beloved, mysterious and much-missed Grace statue on the Bellingham waterfront! And then some epic sunset “yoga on liquid” action on the bay…

I’m excited to have my first iBook available for sale/download in iTunes:https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/tom-robbins-incognito/id888429771. “Tom Robbins Incognito” is a story I wrote in 2003 about my search across NW Washington for “the Northwest’s elusive literary hero” that results in a hilarious and insightful interview — Robbins himself called it “one of the best stories ever written about my unworthy self. In fact, it may very well be THE best… you managed to capture my essence more accurately than just about anyone has done before.” You can download the first chapter of me bumbling around La Conner for free or buy the whole thing for $2.99. New foray in to digital publishing… lots more ideas/projects coming up!

Good day in the EverGREEN State: legal cannabis went on sale in Bellingham (and across the state in approx 24 stores) this morning at 8 am. The line of customers stretches around the block, and we’re nearly matched by the number of reporters, TV crews and photographers covering the celebration – national media, Canadian, Global TV. TODAY is the real Independence Day – freedom from prohibition, superstition, paranoia, propaganda and the failed War on Drugs!

dBMcast#151: Mixed by DJ Playaduster
I’ve been hooked on the Chet Faker vibe since I first saw him perform last fall at Symbiosis, and that jones has only increased since he released his first full-length album “Built on Glass” in April. DJ Playaduster dug deep to find rare cuts, remixes and live performances and then spun them all in to this flowing, gorgeous, sultry mix here just for you. “Faked Out” also includes two tracks from musicians that resonate with the Chet Faker sound: James Blake and ODESZA. Enjoy!

Archangel (Live Session) > Jeans & Wallet > 1998 (INTEIBINT remix) > Blush (Boiler Room 3/3/14) > Left Alone (with Flume) > Drop the Fame (with Flume) > Solo Sunrise > James Blake “Life Round Here” (remix) > Gold > Cigarettes & Chocolate > ODESZA “Keep Her Close” > No Advice (Airport Version) > Talk is Cheap (Ta-Ku remix) > No Diggity (Live Session > Live @ the Boiler Room 3/3/14) > Lesson in Patience
