saw m. ward tonight at the showbox in seattle. joel, ashley, ted and angela were present and, along with the sigur ros show in london, has become the best live performance i've seen.

returned to the parking garage to find my car's rear left window smashed in. the dash compartment's contents were all over the place and glass covered the rear bench ashley and joel were to be sitting on. inventory missing: ipod touch and samsung cellmaphone. police didn't show after an hour-plus. we left and stopped just north at the lynnwood station where we were told to get plastic bags and duct tape from wal-mart because that was "all they could do for us at that time".

at least we weren't shot.
