rumor has it that there is some uber-special presale for people on the mailing list in the subject of this posting, of tickets to the sigur ros show coming up in october. the rumored presale is friday.
is anyone on their list and care to confirm? i'd bake you something tasty, love you forever, and bring you cash in advance if you'd buy me some tickets at the presale, however that works (maybe via ticketbastard?) since i got screwed by the bands own pre-sale website being down last week at 6am when i dutifully got up and tried to buy tickets.
thanks for your help, folks. sigur ros is one of my two favorite bands (which one is on top depends on mood) and i'm really looking forward to not experiencing the show from miles from stage.
..in a few weeks I'm going to be doing a shoot with a local photographer..
does anyone here do vintage hair and makeup...or know people that do? I can afford most regular rates..but have always done trades in the past..since Im kinda new here still...I have *no* connections to depend on..so? anyone?
Where can a person buy a good hat or two in this town? I'm thinking more along the lines of a beanie, rather than a baseball cap, cowboy hat, fedora, or what have you. Preferably something fairly thin (i.e. not wool) and either head-hugging or amusingly floppy. I never thought such a simple item of clothing would be so hard to find, but none of the obvious places to check (Goodwill, Buffalo, Red Light, Target, Ross, Frederick's) seem to have anything, at least this time of year.
I'm looking for some used bookstores (besides Powells) that have a good sci-fi/fantasy, aviation, or space section. I prefer that it would be in Gresham to downtown Portland. But, for books...I'll take the bus anywhere.
I need to fulfill my inner nerdiness. Where in Portland can I find World of Warcraft tcg cards? I recently decided to start playing, but I've been having problems finding some in the Portland area. I've been to Gamestop and picked up a couple packs, but I used to work at Gamestop and I know those cards go fast so I'm not holding much hope on those stores. :)
Does the zoo have metal detectors anywhere?
My boyfriend just got kicked out of his apartment by his psychotic roomate. It was not pretty. Not living there was a necessary step, but now he is essentially homeless. I live in such a situation that it is impossible for him to come here. Does anyone need a roomate? Or have advice? He is a bit gloomy and a bit dorky, but wonderfully sane, friendly, and reasonable. No drugs or drama... (although he sure knows how to put up with them) Help?
Before I have to go online to buy some - do any of you long-haired boys and girls know where I can find decent hair sticks? The only ones I can find at Freds/Target are the cheap plastic ones that break before I can get them through my mass o'hair. My favorite is a wooden one with a metal tip, decorative and effective; my least favorite is the one that makes me look like I have antennae sticking out the top of my head. Any suggestions for local shops or makers would be appreciated!!
can anyone recommend some stroller friendly
hiking nature walk spots? :)
So one of my old roomies left a bunch of NutriSystem food and I don't want it.
It's like Dinners and Lunches. I'll give it away to whoever can come and get it, but I wouldn't mind getting some cash for it either, I'm poor. BAWWW.
Everyday on my bike ride to work I pass by Sweet Pea Baking. I've never been there and they don't have a menu online but I am interested in stopping by sometime and picking up a treat. What do you recommend I try? I am by no means vegan if that makes any difference at all.
Today is a lovely day for Last Thursday.
I'm going to be moving on July 4th. It's a pain, but it's the only day I could get off work. The real problem - besides trying to drive a moving van from the deep NE to the deep SW on a holiday - is that I need to find someone to help out. I'm pretty scrawny, and the only other people who will be able to assist at this point are my 7 1/2-months-pregnant sister and my also scrawny mom who injured her shoulder recently.
You'd be getting $50 cash money plus lunch. We want to try to get started pretty early (around 9 AM) and have the whole operation finished by 4 PM or earlier so as to avoid the worst of the traffic. Basically, what we'll be needing the most help with are a couple recliners and a bedroom set, so you don't need to be a human forklift or anything, just able-bodied.
I'm not mathematically inclined, so please tell me if I'm off.
Say Safeway has gas for $4.13 per gallon, and if you use their card, you save $.03 per gallon. I wanted to know how much of a "savings" that was, so I did 4.13/.03 and got 137.66. Doesn't this mean that if you buy 137 gallons of gas, you'll "get one free" via their savings of three cents per gallon? Isn't this kind of a shitty savings?
*prepares for snarking of obvious mathematical error*
I've used to take dance classes when I was a younger teenager, but then I stopped. Now I'm 20 and I want to take a class that's a little more fun than yoga or pilates. Does anyone know of a good adult gymnastics or dance class? I'm mostly interested in gymnastics, and I know I don't want to take ballet. I tried a hip hop class at Vega but didn't really like it. I used to take hip hop with DJ at Stites and then at her studio on 112th, but I have no way of finding out if the class on 112th is still going on. It would be even better if the class was in North or Northeast. Thanks!
I need to get a cheap, used car...like $1000 cheap. Anyone had decent experiences with local used car dealers?
Where can I get preferably sealed containers of TVP that are cheaper than the 10oz bags of Red Mill at Whole Foods? Those seem pretty expensive. I want to buy a bunch of TVP. I asked about it last time I was out at FuBonn and they looked at me like I had 3 heads and was speaking Martian. From this I gather that TVP is White Hippy Food and not Asian as I was led to believe.
nb4 eat real food liek bacon
Does anyone know where you can find those cheesy tuxedo t-shirts in this town? I've found many online, but I need it sooner than that. Thanks in advance!
