Re: “Pricing Out Portland's Artists

I'm always hearing about the creative class being priced out of Portland, but every single time I ask anyone in this camp seeking housing or studio space where they are looking, the answer is always the same: the trendiest east side neighborhoods that have been picking up steam for more than a decade. Well, surprise surprise they can't afford it, just like I couldn't afford many neighborhoods in both Chicago and San Francisco where I lived before Portland. My Chicago neighborhood was the then decidedly sketchy (now popular and expensive) Wicker Park because I couldn't afford the North Side. In SF it was the Western Addition, long before Divisadero Street got the cute shops and scene-y restaurants. I went where I could afford and if it was short on charm or amenities (or safety) I didn't complain that I was being denied my rightful place in more sought after neighborhoods. I'm sure there is space in Milwaukie, east beyond the 205, or in Hillsboro but you'll never see this crowd go there. I always laugh when the hand wringing starts about the vanishing diversity on the east side. Want diversity? Head out to Oregon's statistically most diverse city...Beaverton. Anyway, everyone makes choices--did anyone really think that their freeform creative careers were going to pay the kind of income that would allow them to live in prime real estate?

Re: “Dog Day Afternoon

I love how anytime anyone says anything on the internet, there will be someone waiting to say; "YOU THERE! HOW DARE YOU TALK ABOUT THIS, WHEN YOU SHOULD BE TALKING ABOUT THIS THING THAT I FEEL IS MORE IMPORTANT?"

It was shitty reasoning in freshman seminar, and it's old as hell on this forum, and all the others just like it.

Re: “Letters to the Editor

The illegitimate 14th Amendment which was never legally ratified by a proper quorum, is the first instance of the use of the name, the "United States." Prior to that, the acknowledged country here used to be called, "The United States of America". It's also the first instance of the terms, Privileges and Persons, rather than Rights and Men. Anyone who claims citizenship thereunder, becomes equal as corporate legal fiction, owned by the State.

Re: “Dog Day Afternoon

Scarface was a much better movie, but Pacino there is still chewing up the scenery.

Jack Lemon was always over the top, but he won a well deserved Oscar for his more restrained performance in Save the Tiger.

Re: “A Bigger Broom

There are basically two personality types who become police officers, but usually the only ones to get hired are short men on steroids and fat assed women who want to be men; both of which assume that the only way to be effective in their jobs, naturally needs to dismiss the Constitution for the sake of expediency. They are petty tyrants. Any honest man who values the Bill of Rights and couldn't decide whether to be a priest or a cop is only from old movies. No one with any integrity will stay on the force, because to be just doing their job, requires them to be abusive. There can be no crime without a victim. All too often, the only victims are the accused. All of these vulgar codes need to be abated, and citizens need to be more personally responsible and vigilant against those whom infringe the Rights of good Americans.

Re: “Everything as Fuck

Showstopper: I was disappointed that Tyler changed his profile picture to something goggle-free after I made my comment. At least we're still treated to the sight of his impressively wispy ginger beard.

And of course, life at B26 is nothing like New Girl. After all, there's a black guy on that show.

Re: “Pricing Out Portland's Artists

The bar is raised a lot higher in California. Farm league players, such as working musicians in Portland, don't get signed by agents or get deals with promoters. If you want to play a small club, you have to rent the place yourself, and charge at the door. In LA, you even have to pass an audition before they so much as let you rent the room.
