i am in need of suggestions for something fun to do for a 17-year-old night owl and possibly friends in portland!
solo or group activities. i enjoy just about anything and i'm here for awhile.
edit: preferably outside of the house?
Any suggestions for fun Portland things to do with visiting family members? Most of them are over 21, so bar suggestions are totally welcome, since I tend to frequent the same 3 dive bars. So far our list includes riding the tram, seeing the Rembrandt exhibit, visiting Powells, taking a Shanghai Tunnel tour, Voodoo Donuts, walking around downtown.....I'm running out of ideas! Help! Before the crowd gets surly and ousts me from the family!
Fastest... sale.... ever.
I opened up shop 30 minutes early at 7:30am. It is now 9:15am and all but three paintings and a small table of craptastic gadgets and various sundries have been sold.
So if you were planning to come to my moving sale this weekend, sorry, shop's closed as of noon today.
Have a great weekend, week, month, and summer season folks! I'll see this lovely city again at Thanksgiving! Kisses!
Want to get a small tattoo (the chemical symbol for THC) on my forearm.
Does anyone have recommendations for tattooists who do EXCELLENT text work?
I'm based in Gresham but can drive.
Anyone know where I could find a Sleater Kinney shirt in town? Are there shops that sell band shirts?
hi folks! i'm hoping that some of you were out at first thursday last night. if so, you may have seen me & my friends dressed up as live dolls at the crude things gallery of 6th & davis. lots of folks were taking out pictures, which was great, we were expecting it, however, we didn't get very many of our own, as we were all busy being still. so what i'm wondering is, if you were there, and happened to get any shots of us, would you pretty please be willing to send them to me or post them here? i'd really love to have some of those images for my portfolio. thanks in advance!
I just bought a window air conditioner at Lowes. They will install it for $175, in a weeks time. I was wondering if there is someo cheaper out there in Portland that I could hire to install it? $175 just seems like too much and I don't think I can wait a week in my 110 degree apartment!
I looked on Craigslist, but there is nothing =(

Do you have a favorite credit union? Why?
We've been banking with Wells Fargo, which hasn't been bad really. At least, I don't have anything bad to say about them. The husband however has his gripes (mostly his fault, but we wont go there..) But if banking through a credit union will be better financially in the long run (we're looking to buy a house next year.. ) then I'd rather make the switch now.
If you think it's a better idea to stay with WF instead of a CU, why?
Much thanks :)
The boy needs a suit for a wedding (or two), where does one find good ready-to-wear suits at a decent price? Any particular stores, thrift or otherwise, that we should check out?
You know I'm getting tired of the Oregonian subscription sellers that come through my apartment complex every 2 weeks. Or I get stopped say going into or coming out of fred meyer. Or getting stopped somewhere using the bus or max.
Why would I pay for a newspaper that is an annoying format?
(I like the Mercury/WW format of opening more like a big book)
Why should I pay for a newspaper that has Ads in it, not only stuffed into it, but printed in it?
(If I wanted ads for local places I'd just go online, most major stores have their weekly specials printed online, thats if I even wanted to pay for the high mark-up of retail B&M stores)
They don't even offer the newspaper in pdf form (I might pay for that) and OregonLive isn't run by them.
Oregonian just seams to be getting more desperate and not adapting to times. The RIAA and Oregonian have something in common, they need to change their business model.
Is there any kind of rhythm to when new, good stuff comes out on the floor at the Goodwill outlets? The one near Movies on TV is close to me. What's the best time of day or best day of the week to go?
My backyard looks like it could double as an extra for a George of the Jungle movie.
Any recommendations for someone or a company to come in and clear out all the overgrowth and haul it away? Front yard isn’t that bad, but needs work too.
Last time I had this done, it was around $250.
No, not an actual punk rock girl. I'm talking about the song by the Dead Milkmen. The wife and I are currently working on making a custom Guitar Hero game build and this is one of the many tracks we've picked, but I can't seem to find a good copy (192k MP3, at least) of it anywhere, nor the CD for anything less than $10+ when shipping's factored in. Can anyone point me to a locale for the track or the CD? Much thanks in advance.
Edit to add: Thanks guys, I got my hands on the track and it sounds great!
I want to make a cd of funny alcoholic songs - in the vain of "I've got friends in Low Places" or "It's 5 o'clock Somewhere". Not necessarily limited to country songs, but I'm just looking for fun/funny songs. Do you have a fave drunken tune?
