Re: “ACME Donuts

These guys are going to give VooDoo a big nudge in the donut market in Portland. The donuts are creative (hello PB&Jelly!), but in a way that focuses more on making them taste good rather than look funny. I don't know what they do to their cake donut recipe, but it's light and warm on the inside and just a little crisp on the outside -- not dry, stick-to-the-roof and gummy like most. (I can't confirm, but I also heard they use all natural, better-for-you ingredients.) I had something chocolate with something orange on top that made my morning.

The staff is super friendly and the place has that neighborhood vibe that native Portlanders like me max nostalgic for. I'll skip the tourist lines at VooDoo and go to Acme.

Re: “Portland as Fuck

I'm adding to the "give Ian a regular column, or article or whatever" petition. Ian, you breathe new, nostalgic life into things that should never have started to feel mundane. Thank you.

Re: “How Do You Make Sense of Horror?

An honest and compassionate perspective, Mirk.

Our thinking about dealing with criminality is completely backwards. Invest in people before things go horribly wrong, not after. We shouldn't be debating prison sentences, we should start with social services, community support, childhood guidance and family intervention when necessary. With few exceptions, crimes like this are preventable, but you we have to start much, much earlier.

Re: “Joe the Plumber Is Still a Huge Idiot

Um, Europe still has gun control laws. No recent government-initiated genocides to speak of...

Re: “This Reminds Me of the Great Calculator Scare of the Late '70s/Early '80s

Maybe English words are just spelled dumb. Necessary contains two S sounds, yet one is represented by a C and the other by SS. Don't get me started on vowels. Let's switch to Latin.

Re: “Mad Men Morning After

What I took from the Peggy/Megan convo:

Megan's struggling to become something new, to fit into a role. It seems so important to have the man, and also prove herself as an individual in a time of changing women's roles. She breezes by people who want it more or are working harder, and to compensate, she tells herself she really wants it.

But when she finally achieved it she don't get the high she expected. It's a letdown, only she can't admit it's a letdown. Especially to Peggy you who would envy her position.

It's a lonely place.

Re: “Paris Kicks Off Week-Long Keep Portland Weird Festival

I live in Antwerp and I can confirm that European urbanites know shit about trees. In fact, they'll rip them out any time they do the smallest street repairs.

I'm super excited to hear there's some Portland influence making it over the ocean. Bikes are big here, but it would be nice to see some recycling and a few more second hand stores. Europeans are humanists, not environmentalists...
