Re: “A Hollow Icon

As for moving Portlandia.... She will not work at ground level. Her anatomy was altered for best viewing from two stories below. Her heads about 10 percent smaller, her back is greatly elongated and her hand size reduced.
For the record I worked on her for several months during her assembly.

Re: “A Hollow Icon

In all fairness it would be nice if you all posted a pic of the original design by Mr. Graves. It looks nothing like the eventual result.
This is a perfect example of "Design By Committee". Much like the Edsel.
What we have today is a watered down version reworked to please the local politicians and built on the cheapest dime possible. No wonder it's a mess. The engineering issues were brought to the attention of the city as it was being built and ignored by the folks in charge. Many major permits were never taken out until after it was finished.
It should have been built as it was originally designed. At least it was interesting to look at.

Re: “Street Harassment

My favorite from "back in the day" when I was still a hottie....
"I'd sure like to get into your pants."
"Oh! Why? Did you just shit in yours?"
