Uh oh. Queue the MRA fedora brigade...
Oh yay, another vague submission criticizing anything to do with bikeportland. Original. btw,
"Were the two women kicked out of a cab for kissing oppressing you?"
This story, much like the lying lesbian waitress claiming she got no tip a couple weeks back, has been thoroughly debunked. Also, the cab driver wasn't white, and you can listen to his 911 call if you care to learn the facts before trying to sound smart.
Those Scientologists seem to have it all figured out, don't they?
Just what we need. !0 million airborne drones buzzing around in the sky all day, making an assload of irritating noise like a cloud of mechanized locusts, scaring the shit out of birds, tempting criminals to shoot them down with pellet guns to get free shit, and occasionally failing and plummeting out of the sky to squash some little old lady weeding or hit some kid at the park. All so some dumb asshole can save $20 bucks on an iPod.
The 'Fast & Furious' franchise, and the mindset that driving fast on public roads is cool (a mindset that has only grown because of these movies), is a disgusting, cancerous pimple on our collective ass.
I'm just glad that dude and his buddy didn't kill anyone else while they were driving like assholes (and, at least so far, all signs indicate that they were). That would've been a tragedy. But not this.
Denis, the silent majority does "speak up." By giving money to the shelters, food bank, building affordable housing within our resources, and a $40 resource access center just a couple of years ago. Maybe what the silent majority wants is for the homeless advocate agencies to stop lecturing us and show some appreciation every once in awhile. Maybe we would like the downtown of the city we love to be civil and not menacing, and not look like crap.
Here is typical liberal Portland thinking:
1) Really really CARE a lot
3) No homelessness!
Caring isn't a plan. "Someone just needs to give us more money" isn't a plan. These agencies will always say they need more money. There is no "enough". They will always tell you that some sort of watershed is right around the corner if they just had X more money.
Portland is humane. I and many others give money directly to these agencies, and I'm sick of people like you telling me I'm "inhumane" because I get sick of aggressive criminals downtown, and I don't want my city to look like shit. Fuck you. What exactly have you done recently Denis, besides talk? "Care" a lot?
What is it with the Producers / Show Runners (ugh, I wish I could go back and not listen to Simpson's commentaries just so I would not know that term) and their fascination with offing tween blondes? Opening episode Rick put one down, Sophia got cut down before she could give mommy a special hug and now you can make strawberry mudpies with Lily's daughter ('s brains). Even the Governor's daughter had light-ish hair.
Sly commentary on the soulessness of tween stardom? Random coincidence? Producer who was, as a young boy, rejected by a then unknown Nicole Eggert years before Charles in Charge and is getting his symbolic revenge?
I guess I'm in the minority, but I thought the Fast & Furious movie was horrible. I rank it right up there with Black Dog. Another stinker, never mind that Patrick Swayze was the star.
@ Melogna - There will be lady sizes!
This is an excellent idea! I hope there are lady sizes!
Ah, the charming classism of the petite Portlandia bougie shithead.
I guess there is not accounting for taste, trololol...
It's gonna be hops mania all over again.
Amen. Too many people on my Facebook feed protested Black Friday and are the ones with brand new iPhones, clothing from boutiques, $1000 bicycles, designer messenger bags, etc., aka every day of the year consumers.
How many "characters" whose names no one knows or cares to know died?
I noticed a lot of bullshit "IF YOU BUY SOMETHING TODAY YOU'RE PART OF THE PROBLEM" hand-wringing from internet acquaintances this year. Thank you for being a voice of reason Alex.
We've all seen each other's Arrested Development DVDs sitting on our shelves - there's no moral superiority in having paid $6 more per season.
Buying something on sale doesn't make you a bad person, injuring someone else for trying to buy that same thing does.
Man, people just freak the fuck out over Eat, Pray, Hike.
That was a pretty good ending ... to season 3.
I definitely second the strategy of very slowly cutting back like Blabby mentioned. That's what worked for me. I started at around 10 a day before I really got serious about the idea of quitting (going up way more if something was stressing me out), but was able to ween myself gradually over maybe six months, to the point where I was smoking one or two a day. I guess sometimes you just have to rip the bandaid off, but for me gently pulling it off was what worked.
Torn, because YES that was an active, bang-up finale with unexpected turns and YES I actually, finally enjoyed bits of this show but these things should've happened 5 episodes ago and this whole damn, dumb show could've progressed at a more interesting clip. This was also the first actual promise delivered on (of dozens) from the Hardwick's of the world that "some fucked up shit is going down on tonights ep, you guys I swear."*
Bummed because now it's clear the writers are JUST smart enough to know they can do literally nothing for an entire season, redeeming the dreadfulness with a mere 15 minutes of unexpected action at the end.
Farmer's daughter is the worst panicked cryer I've ever seen.
I like how The Guv's gang, after his long spiel about the awful people at the prison, agreed to go murder a bunch of stranger s on his word without a SINGLE QUESTION as to why. Two of their gang suddenly disappeared as soon as the Guv joined camp but why be suspicious of his murderous plot or him as a person in any way, right gang?
The show still sucks and will continue to suck. Be back to bitch in Feb.
*More shocking than the farmer's beheading or The Guv dying is no black people being killed off in amidst the bloodshed. I'll reiterate: I have no attachment to these characters. I'm for the zombies and the black people on the show. I'll be satisfied if they are the only ones left at the end.
Day one is probably the toughest day. Keep yourself occupied and engaged with as many things and people as possible. Good luck.
