Running of the Balls

In Spain, there’s Running of the Bulls. In Seattle, we have Running of the Balls.

10,000 yellow tennis balls are released out of a dumptruck on a very steep hill. Object of the ball dump is to get the balls down the hill as fast as possible. Kids roll up newspapers to use as sticks to get them down the hill and into the pen at the end. The balls all have numbers on them. People have pre-bought the balls and the “winning” ball gets a cash prize. This was an event hosted in Edmonds, Washington by international travel guru Rick Steves.

Marcus Eaton Houseparty at Buchholzpalooza II

marcus-eaton

We were fortunate to be present at a special evening of acoustic music with Marcus Eaton, at the home of David and Christina Buchholz. Recently home from a successful and well-received series of performances in Colorado and Southern California, Marcus is currently working on a new studio album which should be available soon. We were lucky to hear Marcus playing selections off his earlier releases “The Day the World Awoke” and “The Story of Now,” as well as songs off his upcoming CD, plus a special improvised version of “Billie Jean”.

And it turns out we were also celebrating Marcus’ birthday. There was an awesome cake and a Happy Birthday sing-a-long by party attendees.

Marcus continues touring and you can view his schedule on My Space or Facebook. He should be playing locally again soon, and watch Seattle Twist for future local performances.
