Hey PDX! It's the WEEKEND! Wooot! We have a great blog for you this weekend!

I used to go to the movie theater every week when I was a kid, sometimes twice a week if I (meaning my parents) could afford it. If it had spaceships and monsters or ghosts or aliens in it, I wanted to see it. I even managed, at the age of 14, to get into an R-rated horror film called Wicked, Wicked (and I did myself no favors, because it was a terrible movie that no quantity of bare breasts could improve, but nevertheless haunted me for weeks afterward).…Continue

Hola PDX! Welcome to the weekend and another edition of our Portland blog. If you're not enjoying your garden or sitting in the sun enjoying a brew, you're probably at the St Johns Street Fair and Bizarre or trying to recover from, and rally for another day of, the Whiskeyfest!

I've lately been suffering from a combination of schedule-fu and malaise, and perhaps just a touch of early spring laziness. For sure my energy has been oscillating like mad, accompanied by a very slight scratchiness in the throat and a head that feels loosely weighted by unsecured ballast.

The first tour we took of Portland after having moved here from the Dallas area, I found myself blinking and squinting more than usual.
I don't suffer allergies, but I thought the sudden eye sensitivity might have to do with some airborn microfuzzy to which my system was unfamiliar. I knew that a lot of people had problems with pollen and wondered if I had finally been introduced to a variety that found Garrison membranes irresistable. My father was susceptible to…Continue

My living room was knee-deep in tweens this morning.
School is out for the rest of the week, so we're a flop for kids whose parents know a good thing when they don't hear it shrieking in their ears. There are blankets and pillows and a blow-up mattress and various plushy animals and…Continue

Usually I'd be extoling the virtues of our fair and fairly odd city here, cracking wise and trying to impart my own perspective of what it's like to live here. This week, though, my mind is elsewhere.
It's in Boston, a city that's been wounded in a viciously cruel way by two young men who decided that some ideology, or some perceived slight, had to be illustrated with the spattered blood and shattered limbs of fellow human beings. This is what I'd like to say to…Continue
