Two distinctly Pac NW news tidbits

First, in what could only have been a slow news day, there was article in the Seattle Times today about a man who, in 2012 bought a cell phone, picked an easy to remember number, and proceeded to get phone calls from high-end car companies, photos from scantily clad women, and files of beats from people, all unsolicited.

Turns out, he had picked Sir Mix-a-Lot’s old phone number…

In other, more indie minded news, Seattle band Hey Marseilles will be releasing their third album on February 5.  In an email sent to their fan club yesterday, they told people that for the occasion, they had partnered with Ballard brewing company Stoup Brewery to create a commemorative beer for the occasion…called Hey Marse-ale.  Well played, Hey Marseilles.
