I don't make plans, and I don't make breakfast.
Right! As recommended in the Mercury this week. I forgot about that, I'll add it.
@firely yes it was a joke. i am in fact kidding you.
Michael - that's interesting. i guess I haven't run across people who refuse to believe those stats. I far more often hear it phrased in a way that basically ignores the actual and historical presence of people of color in this city.
A sort of related point of clarification: One thing Intisar talked about a lot in the interview that I couldn't figure out how to fit into the piece was that, as someone who moved here from the South, a big part of the project is about figuring out what defines "black culture" in Portland. I couldn't quite find the pithy quote to sum that up (that's the problem with this no-context quotes format, which incidentally makes a lot more sense in print than on the web). While the quotes here focus a lot on how people of color are represented, an equally important part of it for her is better understanding the city and culture she's living in. Rereading the piece now, I don't think that really comes through.
Yeah, my autocorrect thinks "hemmer" is a word (is it?), but not "kemmer." Don't worry, the version that goes in the paper will be proofread....
@sgp had some trouble with my Gendrys and my Genlys, too.
@TSW, curious to hear what you think!

OR MAYBE GARDEN STATE JUST WASN'T A VERY GOOD MOVIE.

I liked Gould's set on... Saturday? The Tabor show before Erotic Fan Fic. And I was a little disappointed he used the same character for Erotic Fan Fic and Iron Comic.
