wow! i forgot all about the lake city fiasco. when the old lake city movie theater went belly up (after over 50 years), some kids made it an all ages concert hall. the cops closed it down within a month. then it became a church. the cops didn't close that down.
back in about 1983 0r so, we at the rocket used to run pettibon "gag" panels (one-panel cartoon images with funny captions, etc.). we ran them for about 6 months and then quit because people complained that they weren't funny. (keep in mind that at the same time we had also begun running lynda barry and matt groening and charles burns gag panels, too. and they WERE funny).
this image was one off the gag panels. i remember it because it was about the time that ted bundy was being tried and we all thought it was a very twisted comment.
(keep in mind that matt and lynda and charles and even ted were all seattle folks at one time).
