Whose able to correctly use apostrophe's? NOT PORTLAND
Who's water has fluoride?
Who thinks a city with jobs is a good thing?
I definitely wouldn't call seattle "weird" unless an overwealthy, undersexed latte/audi-driving populace, spooked by periodic shootouts and knife murders, defines weirdness.
Professionally happier but lifestyle-tepid Seattle
Looks like Kathleen will be home to see her friends and meet her fans at the Hollywood Theater this Friday night.
Hey Portland, OR! Friday night is the opening at The Hollywood Theater! I'll be doing a Q&A after and I think we'll have quests from the film in attendance. Please come and spread the word! xx Sini a
On Friday, we open the documentary THE PUNK SINGER! A look at the life of activist, musician, and cultural icon Kathleen Hanna, who formed the punk band Bikini Kill and dance punk trio Le Tigre. Director Sini Anderson will be in attendance on Friday at the 7:15 show for a Q&A along with Sleater-Kinney's Corin Tucker! Sini Anderson will also be introducing the 9:30 show. Tickets are going fast, please buy in advance!
I'm sure throwing some money at it will fix this problem.
Or at least employ someone to claim they are doing something about it.
Hopefully everyone's in line at Helser's/Tin Shed/Salt and Straw and Pine State so I can have the new Bunk Bar all to myself.
I still do not understand why a bean-bag round could not be so different that it wouldn't load in a normal shotgun. Common sense should tell you that. Just a different color is not enough differentation.
As someone who only reads headlines, I am shocked and appalled that a city council member is requesting public money to traffic in the sex trade and equally appalled that the council as a whole is supporting this endeavor.
This is as bad as if not worse than the story last week about the woman being groped by the under aged county worker. http://www.portlandmercury.com/BlogtownPDX…

...or the whole street of Alberta. God forbid you want to eat something there between 2-4 pm.
Or the other few hours when places are open.
I've had to go to battle with Buzzfeed over my photographs from time to time. They are positively recalcitrant. My goal is to never click on Buzzfeed links, and I've been quite successful. I wish Buzzfeed could take their prodigious talent and work on some way to profit share with content creators.
Interesting conversation. I was all over Ten and subsequently Vs and Vitalogy when they came out. I agree with Ned's thoughts on Vitalogy. I didn't like it as much as the first two and I never bought another album of their's after that. I also never saw them live. Would liked to have seen the show here, but at $80 a piece it was not going to happen for me. What happened to the whole war against ticketmaster in the 90's. $80? They really sold out on that idea. Seems like $40-50 would be a lot more reasonable.
We're kindred spirits Steve. I show these to people and no one laughs except me.
Everyone in the world is humorless.
@D&W, I went to Broder Nord the other day, and I was amused to see how we all had conditioned ourselves to how Broder works, even though the new location is 2-3 times the size of Clinton St. There were 10 of us lined up outside at 8:50 am.
There are a million options for pizza, so I don't wait for pizza. Country Cat is nearly as good as Screen Door and (amazingly!) takes brunch reservations. However, I don't have a lot of options for Swedish hash and those pancake thinks with lemon curd, so every few months I'll cop to waiting 10 minutes for Broder.
Colin, I'm pretty sure that concept exists on SE Clinton down the block from the theater.
You can make a reservation for Apizza Scholls on OpenTable. Or, just go on a Tuesday; I was there last night and there were plenty of empty tables.
I'm pretty sure that building already has sprinklers -- set up above the loading dock, to keep people from sleeping there.
Jeezus fucking Christ! What a bunch of God damn idiots!
Let's face it the whole park ranger thing should be cut unless its to keep Forest Park somewhat safe and checked in. The rest of the parks should be handled by regular law enforcement and Forest Park is out there on its own and needs ancillary coverage.
Thank goodness for Copwatch, keeping the city safe from Cops. Wait what does Copwatch do again? Oh that's right, Copwatch tells the cops who is watching them.
It's probably already a Portlandia sketch, but I want to open a one-seat restaurant specializing in one particular Swedish dish. People would line up around the block and then convince themselves that waiting for an hour was both fun and part of the experience. I'd call the restaurant, "Stockholm Syndrome."
Cibo on Division is pretty easy to get into and has Fancy Pizza.
I've been to Ken's (once, though it was very good), and I still have never gone to Apizza Scholls, even though people say it's well worth the wait.
I'm just not down for lines, basically ever. There's so much good food in this town that there's always somewhere nearly as good close by that won't make me wait.
Guess what, if you have waits every single day? You need a bigger fucking restaurant or a second location. I'd say it seems really rude to deliberately make your customers wait like that... if there weren't a baffling amount of Portlanders who seem to have no problem with it.
If there's no Martian Manhunter, then this is shit.
