TV Tacoma All-Star Files: Meet Marty Campbell

Like Daniel Blue's Volcano Tacoma Files only without Hipsters

MEET MARTY CAMPBELL He's a guy just like you or me, only he has done something with his life.  He's a small business owner.  Remember that movie Be Kind Rewind starring Most Def and Jack Black?  Well you can rent that movie at his video store Stadium Video .   Marty has other businesses I think a Record Store... I dunno much about that one.   I hear it is awesome though.

Elections Prove Nothing

Like Dino Rossi or Al Gore, his victory was also stolen away from under his feet.  There is lots of voter fraud in Tacoma and that's the only reason why Maryland Strikland won the POSITION 8 slot in the City Council.  And Like Dino Rossi or Al Gore he harbors deep psycotic resentment for this loss AND If you try to talk to him about it now you'll be lucky if you can get away without bitemarks on your face or boobs.   Dino Rossi is one sick fuck... though not as twisted as Marty. 

Even so I thought it was so WAC up I drew a Tacomic about him.

We All Have Our Theories

Marty tried to be tomany things to to many people.  He started walking around in a necktie.  He even shaved his facial hair.  The man has a baby face... so it lent itself to attract 'undesireable' residents.  Like the BUS PEOPLE of Beards.


Oh the Places You'll Go

 lots of people don't know that Marty is (or was) president of the Downtown merchants group.  What does this mean exactly?  I'm not a business man by any stretch of the imagination but it really sounds impressive.   Hey did you know that Marty is a Chess Savant?

The Chess Whizz!

Marty Campbell plays chess.  He plays a no-holds-barred style of chess often ending in a knife fight.  He is so good at chess people always think he is cheating them. He's not.   You'll be in check mate in about 8 - 15 moves into the game.  Sometimes he'll kill your queen first just to make fun of you in front of all your friends  (Trust me it's not fun).  

Thus in Conclusion:

go see that movie I was talking about up in the first paragraph also NEVER PLAY CHESS WITH MARTY CAMPBELL.

Let's not forget that Marty via Buzzards and Stadium Video was the sponsor of Frost Park Chalk Off Episode XI with quite a generous prize package:

Dawn and Ariel enjoyed the many prizes:


We will no doubt see Marty in another council contest in the future.

BTW: Marilyn is a champion, helped get the stalled 30 year overdue Broadway LID back on track, and our only council member living downtown.

Lets use the comment thread as a virtual campfire for us all to share stories about his FAMOUS TACOMA CITIZEN.

Any stadium video employees out there willing to put out some dirty laundry? give us the low down!

Is it just me, or has there been some kind of invasion? UFO's seem to be circling RR's blog.

Wow. And I thought it was bad that my brother was the source of my children learning the term "drag" ... this might top? Nope. There's more than a bra involved.

A friendly hack RR? Perhaps it was needed so Feed Tacoma could inoculate itself in the future.
