I've been all 4 years and the mardi gras ball is always a great time. Plenty of dancing to great bands playing cajun/zydeco, the costumes are amazing - people really go all out! If you miss New Orelans or miss Mardi Gras this is as good as it gets in Portland!

Why don't you laugh at rape jokes? Because they aren't funny. duh.
Thanks for the article! I hate that crap too. And good for your for standing up for yourself, and tackling the subject with humour.
It was more than one song. It was an endless evening of flat not-even-frat-boy-funny digs including several Jewish jokes, a Nazi, that awful Ted bear thing, digs at actresses not eating to fit into their dresses, digs at actresses working as strippers, and on and on. It was just mean-spirited across the board. Why watch? To see Barbara Striesand, Adele, and holy crap Dame Shirley Bassey! Billy Crystal is a decent oscar host. Steve Martin is, also. Johnny Carson was always good.
Aw! It's just a pre-social media shout out! KBOO has great public affairs shows in the AM, DJ Anjali/Incredible Kid on Tuesday nights, and a teriffic Native American show (http://kboo.fm/TillicumWawa) on Thursdays. It's a grab bag, but there are nifty shows.
Ditto Anita Robinson - so much talent in this town!
You need help. And you need help right now. This is going to sound counter intuitive but call SARC or Portland Women's Crisis Line 505-235-5333 right now. They will have resources for you. You have to stop what you are doing. It's no joke, it's not "harmless".
Wow actually Feminist Agenda has been a great resource for getting the word out about Womenstrength free self defense classes for women in the Portland Metro Area.
and many other events and classes -
