@banana Ohhh Emmm GEEEE so good. you really bring out the truth about these exploiters. jeez i can't believe some one would actually do this. what a bunch of fags. why is this even being written about? who cares. they are just going to get a big bag of cash and run back to LA. KEEP PORTLAND REAL! WHOOOOHOOO!
rocky tinder is an ass clown with a terrible mustache. he's such a 20 something party hipster. and he owes me child support.
jordan kinley is such a big fat jerk
Dude, Wittenmeir is no Coen, Jonze or otherwise. He's just another fat douche that moved here from LA and continues to stink up the place with his blend of sell-out opportunistic mediocrity. The guy has about a 30 second attention span.
Yeah, exactly like the Coen Brothers! Well, minus all the great movies they've made. And plus a Budweiser ad or two.
Charles is not an ad exec. He is a filmmaker who also directs commercials. Just like Spike Jonze, the Coen Brothers and fellow Portlanders Chel White and Matt McCormick.
It's also worth noting that in a city full of 20 somethings one of the most interesting events to happen in the last year is being put on by a guy in his 40s.
correction: Dragging an Ox through Water is NOT slated to play at this particular mansion.
Overheard at the Artistery:
"Oh yeah, he may be a corporate whore, but he's our fucking corporate whore!"
Wait, some guy made tons of money in marketing, lost everything, has everyone in the art community running to "be heard" (really?), a film is being made, and you're telling me money isn't going to be involved in the equation? Someone cue the circus music......
Sounds fun and is a great idea to crash and burn with a smile and a bunch of friends and music
oh, come onnn you cynical grumps. it's not a documentation of the music scene, and no one is getting paid- no commercial profit.
Local ad exec falls on hard times, looks to exploit Portland music scene as a means to get back on top. Portland music scene becomes a Budweiser commercial

I wanted to leave a witty retort, but the button for "BALLOON DIALOGUE" is missing from the preview / post comment menu.
Comic book fans to Mercury: "You have no right to publish what you want!"
Mercury to readers: "We don't care what you think, or if we've offended you!"
Both are wrong. But the one true thing about the Mercury is it's taking the Stranger's path to being a paper that is down on everything, unless it is about someone that works for the paper or is dating them. I hoped it wouldn't happen, but it seems DS's tentacles can reach at least 200 miles. Your sardonic whit and insight into what only you know is cool is so refreshing!
Wait, was that joke (Joe) from the new Techno Tuesday? Usually it just is about technology but I'm waiting to hear about how old people do funny stuff too.
Actually, based on his laborious overexplanation above, the writer of the comic strip seems to be the most sensitive about his "art" - and by taking himself this seriously, he seems the most unable to laugh at himself.
The strip art looks okay. But the writing didn't work. Comic fans = nerds? Oooh...how cutting edge! This just in: retired people like to eat dinner at 4pm buffets! Ha! You know what I'm talking about, people. Good stuff.
As an independent comic creator for the past twenty years, I thought this strip was hilarious and in no way insulting. All you folks all in a constipated bind about this need to grow some thicker skin. If this is what gets the comics community out there all riled up, I'll buy you all a baby soother. Lighten up!! Yeesh...
