I love this city.
Just awful. Made by someone who doesn't know how to make movies, who had no friends to read his scripts and ask questions like 'Okay, so why is this scene in the movie?' Scored by someone who didn't realize that it's okay have two quiet seconds anywhere in the whole film. Also laden with product placement.
Costumes are nice.
If you want a crazy, trippy, semi-intellectual, outsider-art amazing vampire movie, check out 'Daywatch/Nightwatch' with the f/x laden subtitles.

I totally know that house, those guys are so sweet! They always play with my kid when he's running around the sidewalk. They totally brighten my day. If any of you are reading this who live in the house by Sweedeedee, never change!
Love this article. I've had such a hard time articulating the vibe of PAX both to people who go to a lot of conventions and those who aren't familiar with the concept of a 'Swag Bag.' You're right that there's a tendency towards inclusiveness and an emphasis on creating a fun environment for all.
Also my 16-month-old laughed and clapped as an attendee dressed up as a bloody mutant swung a cleaver.
I went in to 'What's the Scoop' recently and bought a pint. Everything I tasted was delicious and their pints were hard-frozen which was pretty convenient for tossing in my bag and taking to a picnic. The only ice cream I'm sure I like better is Salt & Straw though both suffer from the same disease: hard mix-ins that overwhelm the base flavors if you're not lucky enough to chance on the perfect bite.
One cute thing: What's the Scoop seems to be a family business, with children aged 12-20 manning the counters and kitchen when I went in.
Miss Delta completely deserves to be on the list. I've long wondered why it isn't at least always full when Gravy is completely overrun. They do everything on their small menu well, and their ultra-rich food is perfectly cooked and plated, then served by two very attentive waitstaff (one beautiful, one handsome). They are also much more kid friendly than Gravy.
Interurban just started a totally lovely brunch menu with no waiting (as of last weekend) and a lovely modern-styled back patio.
When it comes to good bahn mi in North Portland. there are two great options that I have tried:
1) Vieng Lao, the asian foods market on Killingsworth and N. Michigan, has delicious meaty bahn mi for 2.25 (they're packaged up out on 82nd and brought in every day)
2) The Old Gold, also on Killingsworth but a bit more west on N. Gay, serves a vegan tofu bahn mi on vietnamese style baguette for something like $5.
Uchu suffers from the biggest frustration I have with small plates (note that all plates here are small; along with the naturally small plates of Nigiri, their specialty rolls are also served in half-portions, and their udon wouldn't fill a coffee cup): high prices, tiny portions, and samey quality. I love a place that serves bites of the most delectable flavors, like the vastly superior Mee-Sen thai just up the street, where teensy bowls of broth bring the flavor and the subtlety, but $60 on dinner for two had better be a throw down of tastes, presented well with subtle sauces. Next time you're on Mississippi, hit Gravy, LBB, or of course Lovely's 50/50. Better yet go to Mee-Sen and get some real small plates.
