Portland Pixels

Let me tell you something, this blogging stuff ain't easy. Staring at a blank screen willing a lone blinking cursor to move, to begin trailing letters I hope form words that in turn clump together in sentences and then paragraphs, is at times a frustrating, nay, MADDENING exercise that often spurs me to desperate measures, flailing the google (did I just create a euphemism?) in search of a subject, any subject, that will break the knots in my synapses and clear the way for fluidity of…

Snout About You

I'm a cat person. Cats are kind, compassionate animals, the perfect companions, actually. When you've had a hard day, there's nothing like a faithful cat who greets you when you come home, who winds around your ankles as you close your front door on a demanding world, who leaps gracefully into your lap as you wearily sink into your favorite chair, always ready to calm and soothe you with grateful purrs.…

Stumptown Styles

The missus and I were running errands yesterday when she spied a pedestrian on the sidewalk and said “That is so typically Portland.”

“What?”, I asked as I pointed out a stop sign for her. She always drives because I don't like to drive when she's in the car with me, but I like to help out when I can.

Video PDX

Whenever I'm visiting YouTube I can't help but take a look around for any new vids that Portland fans (and non-fans – there's just no defense against the surf-by looka-me clown rants) have posted. I'm like any citizen who loves his or her town, I like seeing what others love about it too, and how the media limns it.
