ERIC OLSON

The Tacoma native and Commander of U.S. Special Operations Command is the current longest-serving Navy Seal. And oh, he planned the Bin Laden raid. If you look directly at him, his badassness will scorch your corneas.

JAMES ROBART

Every morning that we get up and don’t find a pile of unwanted phone books on our doorstep, we’ll think of the judge who ruled that Seattleites can opt out of getting the Yellow Pages.

JANELLE MONÁE

Kansas City’s coolest cat rocks saddle shoes, a pompadour, and bones-of-rubber dance moves, not to mention a funky croon. She’s like Little Richard without the unnerving facial hair. (WaMu Theater, June 2)

MICHAEL K. YOUNG

It’s not that we’d kiss up to the new UW president because we want to get our cousin with crummy SAT scores in. With his big 
move from Utah, we’re hoping he has a Park City ski condo he’s no longer using.

EVA GABRIELSSON

She’s spreading the antifascist and feminist beliefs of her late better half, Scandinavian crime author Stieg Larsson—but we’d sell our own mothers to a fascist dictator for a taste of her unpublished fourth Girl with the Dragon Tattoo book. (Town Hall, June 26)

MICHELLE RETALLACK

The executive chef of wine bar RN74 waited six years to move from owner Michael Mina’s San Francisco location to the new one in downtown Seattle. We hope no one told her that her -professional-basketball-watching situation is not going to improve.
