OK the pesky Yelper, "Amy M." (Amy Maxwell of Portland, OR) is here: https://www.oregonmusicnews.com/amy-...versations-102

Sounds like a persona to me. The yelp image is the same image from the ticket website, and is one of only two on the web, the other being a different angle of the same photo shoot (note same hair, necklace, blazer, and shirt).

Fake News? Because, damn she is busy.

Blurb from her site: https://www.tickettomato.com/meet-us

"AMY MAXWELL FOUNDER, OWNER
Amy has 20 + years in the event and entertainment industry. In the past Amy worked for large corporations in event planning, marketing and PR. In addition, to her corporate experience she manages Patrick Lamb Productions, produces shows, non-profit events, festivals and concerts. Amy brings years of customer service experience, event logistics, and box office management to Team Tomato. She is highly sought after in the industry for both production and setting up box office management for various clients throughout the nation. Amy believes in giving back to the community and currently sits on the Children’s Cancer Associations Ambassador Board, and donates her time to several organizations in the community. She continues to manage Ticket Tomato’s daily business, along with her travels in conjunction with event production and box office management.

TT Fun Fact: Amy’s favorite band is Earth Wind and Fire!"

=========

I note it says she manages "Patrick Lamb Productions" but old Pat's site says otherwise. It says the manager is Maryann Brunner. http://www.patricklamb.com/contact

I also note that she does not appear on the kids cancer ambassador board like the blurb says. Here's the board:https://joyrx.org/about/leadership/#ambassador-board

Ah, the Internet. Where everything is not what it is because it isn't anything. Or, as Bernard said better: "Doesn't look like anything to me."

I hope her day gets better.

It's a quote from a Denis Leary standup special called "No Cure for Cancer"

It's in a song called "I'm an a$$hole"

I don't really park in handicapped spaces lol

So who else always does a complete circuit of an unfamiliar parking lot, casting a practiced eye around looking for that great, never very obvious spot where your bike won't get doored, backed into, or hassled for blocking a pedestrian walkway? My favorite is big box stores with huge broad sidewalks that literally nobody uses and cement-filled steel bollards separating it from the parking lot to prevent lunatics from ramming the front doors with their Dodge Cummins V10 because they couldn't return a [thing that only a lunatic would think you can return]. You can just roll up to the front of the big blank flank of the building and drop the kickstand and nobody will ever come near it unless they mean to.

But it's nice to see dedicated motorcycle spaces too, and if I had a Yelp login I'd counter that skank-ass lady's review.

so you take your bike to costco? i have actually done the same at the gig harbor costco - parked inside the truck-proof cleats next to the wall.

its fun to see the civilians gawk, when your in gear and riding something that looks to them like george jetsons ride.

also, I am a totally judgmental bitch with dudes. I watch my bike and I like to see how dudes react to it. Some stare and point. Some nod approvingly, but subtly, and keep on rolling. Sometimes kids are the best - so openly fascinated. But the interesting ones to me are the dudes who look like regular dudes but they walk right by my most-badass Kawasaki and absolutely do not even see it. It is invisible to them. These are betas?

Am I wrong here? Any regular dude, rider or not, has got to appreciate the engineering prowess of a ZX-10, or that "thing" with Duc's, or even that weirdass double-thump of a TC88.

It's like how i appreciate parkour but I can't run up walls and I don't even want to.

I dunno...it's been a long day.

If a guy doesn't notice pretty much any motorcycle...or truck, or muscle car...then they've probably got a man-bun, beard, plaid shirt, skinny jeans and Dockers...and yes, are a Beta.

I used to take my Triumph to Costco all the time, saved me a lot from buying tons of dubiously useful crap, limited by the volume of two leather saddlebags. People did look weirdly, but many admired the bike. Now I let my membership lapse because most of the stuff comes to my home in boxes. But you will still see me in front of Home Depot, parked diagonally in a regular parking spot, with several empty spaces on each side.

Also, I'll be honest with you, modern Kawasaki, when parked, leaves me absolutely disinterested, engineering or not. Just filtered out by the brain. On the road, completely different.

Not often since I'm typically there buying 12 packs of paper towels and such, but my nearest Best Buy and Target are both like that: literal acres of 20 foot wide sidewalk wrapping around two sides of the building and nobody ever sets foot on any of it because it doesn't lie on a straight line between their parking space and the front doors.

I like it a lot when motorcycle enthusiasts walk over and will bullshit with them all day, but don't have much patience with other randoms who ask more out of boredom than interest. One guy ogled my bike for a while from a crosswalk in Seaside while I was waiting for the light and finally asked how big the engine was. He was looking at inch-high digits "1200" on the fairing right above the valve cover. I probably said something smartassed like "about a foot and a half by two feet"
