I'm curious what the role of vice is in fuelling gang activity. The article mentions that gangs have moved from drugs to prostitution; would legalizing these remove the gangs' motivation? Or are they just involved in vice because they have an "insider advantage" by already being criminals?
The policemen are doing nice work to stop against the gang.
This problem is never going to get better, unless there is a better alternative.
We could offer better foodstamps, and bigger HDTVs. Throw money like there is tomorrow. Make it rain!
Or we could have better employment opportunities. Jobs that don't make the worker look like a sucker for working for little more than foodstamps. Jobs that allow the workers to drive the nice cars, a decent crib, and money left over to buy bling. Jobs that make the parents look like heroes even though they can't make a jump shot.
The cheapest way is to teach the little delinquents not to victimize poor people, and instead to go for where the real money is. That would inspire action, I betcha.
Good investigative reporting of a troubling problem. Nice work here.
It is being shown in Vancouver regularly now! Fox gave the DD and The Kiggins permission to keep showing to movie, the 4th Saturday of every month to be exact at The Kiggins Theater.
And as far as The DD wanting to leave the theatre and strike out on their own goes, the theater has recently come into the hands of new owners who had a different idea of how things should be than we did so we made the decision to move on because of irreconcilable differences and in our opinion all the problems that we faced were totally worth it to be where we are now, The Kiggins Theatre is absolutely beautiful and completely supportive of us.
Also, I can understand how shadow casts are not for everyone, but also all shadow casts are very different and run things in different ways, it's all about finding a place and cast that you like, or even just finding a theater without a shadow cast if that's what you prefer.
It's great to hear different opinions from time to time!
Is it coming back to vancouver? I missed it :-( I really wanted to take my kids (not kids any more but they have never experienced it lol)
What I don't understand is why the "Delinquents" wanted or "needed" to strike out on their own? If Rocky Horror "screams what Portland is all about", why move your group from a celebrated, long-run at a cool mom-and-pop venue in the heart of inner SE Portland to Vancouver only to deal with so many problems as a result?
I haven't been to a Rocky Horror midnight movie in...maybe 8 years, and maybe twice in the 12 before that. But I was one of those weird high school kids whose teens were enhanced, if not socially blessed, by Rocky Horror midnight screenings. I wound up working for the theater that showed it in my town, and I lost track after 300 showings.
While Rocky Horror clearly was part of my life and my friends' lives, I never fully understood the shadow cast, those folks who recreate the movie as it plays behind them. Audience participation allowed both a sense of tradition and belonging (of a sort), while improvised interactions allowed for personal expression (of a sort). As both a regular and employee of a theater, the shadow cast always seemed more for the sake of the shadow cast, though I'll note that I can't speak for local regulars.
The craft beer bubble needs to fucking burst already so we can get to work on the cheap awesome cocktail bubble.
I miss Hair of the Dog, "Rose" Beer, inspired by the Belgian Tripel style. It is a top fermented ale which has a deep golden color with a light refreshing body. The beer has a subtle hop profile using the Northwest's finest whole hop flowers. We use Aromatic and Honey malts along with Candy Sugar to give it a unique and fruity character. It is 6% alcohol by weight (7.5% by volume).
Willamette Valley hops and filberts are World renowned.
True enough. Tide might do some good - or maybe just a bar of soap. Rogue recently brewed a beer with wild yeast discovered in their brewmaster John Maier's beard. Which is somehow supposed to not be gross.
"Oregon's wild. It's wild, man. Look around us." We're at Bailey's Taproom and it's full of bearded men and beaded dreads, suits and rags and black dresses and jeans and hats indoors. "Of course it would happen here
what the "it" that would happen there? a laundromat intervention?
Sounds like a big box of Tide is the next IT ingredient.
You also forgot about donating your body to Body Works and/or to science.
And still no movement on my proposal to have speakers play Lou Rawls when someone spins the Loo rolls.
I don't think that Randy is a very dignified name.
Powell's and Laika are two of my favorites! GO LAIKA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
GO HARD LAIKA!
Werker? I pirate sound you!
I shut the city once... Seriously, i said no! I use to hear from him every now and again. What sucks is I was on his side. Lets save money. I can't never say what I'm talking about out loud.. BUT if DH replacement ever reads this. I got you buddy. (emoticon heart)
This is a horribly written article - almost painful to read. How did this make the cover? Was the editor on vacation?
