Homeless organization sets up protest on the Ave

For the past several weeks, a cluster of tents have congregated in front of the post office on the Ave and Northeast 43rd Street. 

The people living there are homeless members of the community — individuals and families alike — looking to bring awareness to the issue of homelessness in the U-District and throughout Seattle.

The effort is run by the self-proclaimed The Ave Foundation, who describes themselves as “homeless for the homeless.”

Fix the world in five minutes or less: Don't forget to smile

Corporate citizenship.

Those are two words that are rarely heard these days. Instead, most stories about corporations revolve around greed, fraud, and general douchebaggery. But one company is using its resources to actually give something back to society.

Last year, the Amazon Corporation began a program called AmazonSmile, where the company donates .05 percent of each sale to a charity of the customer’s choosing.

The sex appeals: A guide to naked pictures

Since the dawn of committing images to paper, canvas, or stone wall, people have loved naked pictures. And with good reason — they can be romantic, erotic, beautiful, and hilarious.

Book review: ‘Meka,’ by J.D. Morvan and Bengal

Ever since the reopening of Japan to foreign relations at the dawn of the Meiji era in 1868, a sizable portion of French people have openly and avidly been fascinated by Japanese art and culture. This influence ranges from fin de siècle Impressionism to a wide range of anime- and manga-influenced art in today’s French cartoons and comics. 

Album Review: ‘Hesitant Alien,’ Gerard Way

Music doesn’t exist in a vacuum. The sounds we enjoy are important, but where — and who — we were when we heard them play a huge role in how we feel. Whether it’s Curtis Mayfield pumping us up for a job interview or Cyndi Lauper getting us through a bad breakup, context is inseparable from composition.

All the world's a gallery

If you have ever needed a compelling reason to explore the UW campus, now is the time. Until Oct. 25,12 works of art are on display in a project called Mad Campus.

This unusual exhibition is from MadArt,a project started by Alison Milliman about six years ago. The program has put on other exhibitions before, such as Mad Homes in 2011, when artists took over five houses before they were set to be demolished. The idea is always to bring art into an everyday context, where people will simply stumble across it.
