Street Art in the Time of Corona Virus

Many of the businesses forced to close in Seattle have literally boarded shut. I assume this is from the very real chance of people trying to break windows and loot what is inside. These are just in a one-block radius from my building, who knows what I will find if I ever venture further. Stay ...

Seattle Dragons play the DC Defenders in the inaugural XFL game.

Here at A-Train Sports, we do not recognize the failure of the XFL 20 years ago. As far as we are concerned the league never existed, and today February 8th, 2020 the REAL XFL begins. I have already locked myself in as a DIE-HARD Dragons fan. I live in Seattle, as a boy the only ...

Meat Vending Machine. One Step Closer to Robots Running Everything.

At first, I thought “Hey Meat Vending Machine, I’m gonna blog about how sweet this is.” Yes, of course, a meat vending machine is pretty sweet no matter the location. You’re out and about, your tummy rumbles, you look up and see meat. It’s the AmericanĀ Dream. An inside of a Nordstrom’s is like a labyrinth ...

Seattle Man Eats Two Bags of M&M’s Labeled “Sharing Size” in One Sitting & Lives to Tell His Tale.

No, this isn’t “Ripley’s Believe it or Not” but in fact a true story straight from A-Train HQ where one of our reporter’s (me) got the scoop on a local rebel, who defied the Mars Corporation’s recommendations to share his bags of M&M’s. (also me) You see we no longer live in a land where ...
