Since my last weekly round up, I have started a new job/career which involved opening a men’s custom clothing store called Beckett & Robb in downtown Seattle. That is definitely the most substantial change/development in the past month for sure. I am excited, we opened on Wednesday of last week and once the store is up and running, I will be the daily operator of it. The only daily operator. Alone. Monday through Friday. Yes, I do understand the responsibility and all that, thank you for asking.
So no day to day coworkers. If it doesn’t get done, it’s because I didn’t do it. If the shop gets a bad yelp review, that’s on me. I could go on, but you understand.
You may notice that Facebook and Twitter have fallen off the roundup, they still exist, but they are such minor players. I have Facebook because of family and I honestly don’t know what Twitter is for (still), especially since I am not trying to promote some strange service or have the need to supply my commentary to everything.
Since my last Rear View Mirror, I have celebrated hundreds of birthdays on Waldina. I decided to choose people from May 15th to spotlight: Jasper Johns and Richard Alvedon. I truly admire both of their work in their visual fields.

Most Popular Post Last Week: Happy 62nd Birthday Cindy Sherman
This week on TheRealSPA over on Tumblr, I highlight photos and videos that I found interesting. From the last month or so, I chose the one image that I looked at the most and thought about the most after posting. It was this photograph of James Dean and Eartha Kitt in a cafe. Then, I got to digging into that idea of them and found more photos and have posted them here for the first time.

Today is the 90th birthday of the woman that is an American icon, even fifty years after her death: Marilyn Monroe. Do yourself a favor and watch The Misfits sometime soon. You won’t be disappointed. One of my favorite stories about her is that for 20 years after her death, Joe Dimaggio had red roses delivered to her crypt twice a week. Generations of flower shop delivery boys learned the story, made the drive to visit her final resting place in honor of their baseball hero, replace the 3-day old roses with new ones, touch the her bronze name placard and understood the true meaning of eternal love. The world is a better place because she was in it and still feels the loss that she has left. #MarilynMonroe #Birthday #Hollywood #Royalty #Icon #follow #followback #PNW #PhotoOfTheDay #DailyPhoto #seattle #dailyinspiration #StyleIcon #History #Legend

I'm a mountain goat. Above this large rock in the yard is a tree branch with a bird feeder hanging from it. I like to stand on the rock to keep the birds away. #BirdHater #petsofinstagram #PetLover #DogLovers #Doggie #AnimalLover #Animal #PNW #Dogstagram #InstaPet #SeattlePet #PhotoOfTheDay #DailyPhoto #DogsOfInstagram #InstaPet #RescueDog #dogs #Poodle #Seattle #DailyScraps #SenorScraps #follow #followback
