Silk Thai Cafe in Tacoma

Filed under: tacoma — sparkrobot @ 6:29 pm

Silk Thai Cafe TacomaWe arrived at around 8pm and for a Friday night, the place was relatively slow. (Though it was the 23rd of December.) We were seated right away. The decor was nice and the atmosphere inviting. however they definitely could have lowered the volume on the “background” music. With so few parties dining, Josh Groban in the air was seriously KILLING me. We ordered and the food was on the way.

We started with spring rolls, which were nice and freshly prepared. I had Garlic Chicken and Dionne had a Beef and Broccoli plate. The food was great and reasonably priced. Though the servers were friendly, they were a bit slow considering the traffic. This definitely won’t affect my decision to return however. We’ll be back. I’ve added it to the main Tacoma Restaurants post.

Moderately priced with a great menu. Two of us ate with an appetizer and a couple of beers for about $34. Check it out.

New rock photography up

Filed under: photography — sparkrobot @ 6:01 pm

Well… sorta. Some of it is rather old. I finally got a few minutes to edit some photos – new and old – and add them to the rock photo gallery. I’ve recently updated my equipment from the old FujiFilm to a Nikon D50. So. Wow. I guess next up is actually learning how to use the damn thing. Reading the manual though? Come on. That’s SO boring.

Anyway, if you’ve been on the edge of your seat waiting for me to update the gallery, your time has come. Check out photos of band like The Little Killers, Valis, The Stuckups, The Cinch, X27, The Earaches, Bob Log III, The Eastside Suicides, Ronson Family Switchblade, The Electric Kisses and the Urgencies to name a few. I’ll be adding new photos as well as a backlog about a mile long.

CHS Circus logos

Filed under: design — sparkrobot @ 2:38 pm

Stumbled across a cool collection of old Circus logos via Veer’s recently redesigned and includes a new design blog. Good design inspiration and the new look at veer’s not too shabby neither. It’s not a major overhaul but the design seems to be more suggestive and inviting overall. A nice improvement on an already well designed site.
