Complaint

To the power-tripping asshat at the Fez who denied my boyfriend entry for "not being of legal age", in spite of the fact that A) he turns freaking 26 in July, and B) he had been happily (and politely) drinking and carousing with the Plunderathon crowd since 3:30 or so in the afternoon, no questions asked:

THANKS FOR TAKING A BIG SHIT ON OUR OTHERWISE FUN EVENING. :p

You may now return to your regularly scheduled program.

P.S. Yes, Boyfriend did have his current, unexpired Oregon Driver's License on hand; the door guy apparently even tried to confiscate it.

movie premier

is there a particular theater in portland that all the extreme fans go to for the movie premiers? you now, the geeks that dress up and wear costumes? or maybe one is more popular than the others?
JW South Park-style

There has to be a twist.

Oh wise and mighty DPers.

It's my hubby's birthday in a couple of weeks, and one of the things he loves most in this whole wide world is pinball. I come to you seeking the best pinball halls – or arcade with much pinball selection – in the Portland area. We'll be willing to hit any of the outlying areas to get his fix.

His only criteria is that it be modern pinball, with all the electronic "minigames" you can shove in it. Ones like Twilight Zone, Lord of the Rings, etc. Speaking of, Twilight Zone is probably his favourite table, so bonus if you know where we can find one of those.

And ... Go!
Worky Work!

I'm looking for the following old school Gameboy games:

Donkey Kong '94.

Baseball.

Boxxle.

Do any of you fine people out there have it? Yes, I could look on eBay or Craigslist or call some random store ... but, I thought I'd give it a shot on here first. I can pay you!

Also, I'm trying to get rid of three PlayStation 2 games:

-Call of Duty : Finest Hour
-Madden 2005
-Metal Gear Solid 3 : Solid Snake

All in perfect condition. $10.00 each. I just really want to get these off my hands.

Pirates plundered the town, not one ninja was brave enough to show up

First off, if ye wanna help make next year's Plunderathon great, click on the donation link and send us a buck or two. Every bit helps!


















Now fer the gory details:


The ship, H.M.S. Birdman, sailed erratically but semi-failthfully through the night, but ultimately sank shortly after leaving the Fez.


The other ship, The Flaming Molly, was last see in Vasalene Alley being stared at by hordes of drunk Pride festical atendees.


We had some contests (tug-of-war, cleavage competition, pirate name contest, costume contest, cabin-boy presentation contest, etc) and a war (rubber bands in O'Bryant Square after we arrived at Pioneer Square to find it full of flowers.)


After the games, we gave away a few thousand dollars worth of sex toys (Thanks to Spartacus for the leather and most of the condoms, Taboo for the t-shirts and most of the cock rings and Fantasy for most of the vibrators and other assorted toys). Then we gave away $1,000 worth of free admission tickets to the porn theatre (Thanks to Paris) and $900 worth of free passes to the Ace of Hearts (thanks to, well, the Ace of Hearts).


So, yeah, we lived up to the "blatant sexuality" theme this year.


We did much drinking and much carousing, and there was some boob-grabbing and ass-slapping.


And a few lawyers were locked in the stocks brought by the allegedly scurvey-free Randy Rackem (and his hot assistant for the night Emily, who the Historian tried to hit on).


Many photos were taken, and will be linked here as they come in (feel free to leave your own in the comments section).

Plunderathon Pics and Video

Plunderathon rocked. My SO and I had a great deal of fun, and we managed to get very intoxicated as per the plan of the evening.

A big thank you to all who attended for reminding why I moved to Portland OR. I love this city.

I put up some pictures and video of the event I would like to share here:

I noticed there were others documenting the event. I would love to see some of the pictures others grabbed. Edit: Already a thread for that

The quality of these pictures seem to get worse as we get further into the evening.

On a side note, I vaguely remember having a gaming themed conversation with someone with rainbow colored hair that was looking for a gaming group to join. Does anyone know who that was?

HEY PORTLAND,

Answer me this:


What is the title of an animated Aladdin-like film that involved "three golden balls," some thieves, a witch queen (maybe?), and some absolutely amazing artist animation?

Does anyone know? It had a title of something like Ali Baba and the forty thieves, but nothing like it is showing up on IMDB, nor in google. Also, I'm almost certain it wasn't disney.

p.s. is the whole gay pride weekend over in portland?

Outside of Portland experience

According to stereotypes, the average person who reads this community showed up in Portland six months ago after they realized that Dubuque, Iowa just isn't cool enough for them.
But then there are a few people in here that were perhaps born and went to school in Portland and have lived pretty much their entire lives here.
But then, quite a few of us are probably in the middle, and came from around, but not in Portland. In fact, many of you are probably reading this from Salem...RIGHT NOW.
So, my question is, how much do all of you leave Portland? Are you that familiar with rest of the state? I have lived in other areas of the Willamette Valley, and have also passed through or visited almost every crossroads in the Willamette Valley. But for many people reading this, going to Albany might be like visiting Tierra Del Fuego.

JOSS WHEDON ON EQUALITY NOW:

"There are two ways to fight a battle like ours. One is to whisper in the ear of the masses, try subtlely and gradually to change the gender expectations and mythic structures of our culture. That's me. The other is to step up and confront the thousands of atrocities that are taking place around the world on an immediate, one-by-one basis. That's a great deal harder, and that's Equality Now. It's not about politics; it's about basic human decency."
