What food do you miss from where you came here from?!
I miss grits (but luckily the ones at the screen door are tasty as hell!)
I also kind of... miss my grandpa's chicken bog.
Okay, so how difficult is it to get a camera into the Crystal Ballroom? Site says professional cameras not allowed but it varies by show...so how am I supposed to plan? Dagnabbit. I guess I can send my man back to the car if we have to.
That is all. Yes, I am seeing Nick Cave tomorrow, the day after my 25th birthday. Which means - today is my birthday. Go, me!
Anyway, yeah. I'm just wondering, since I've never gone to a show there, if I should even try to bring my camera.
New in town. Not willing to compromise on my music, so if it means having to go alone, that's okay. Ideally I'd like a buddy up with someone to go to the Cold War Kids on the 27th, Santogold on Oct 5th, Anberlin on Oct 12 and Ludo on Nov 9. Anyone interested?
This is somewhat of a strange request but I was hoping someone might have a bicycle my friend could borrow while she's visiting me next week. I could even leave some kind of collateral. Oh, it would be awesome if it was a road bike because that's what she's used to, but anything would work. She'd probably need a frame between 49cm and 53cm.
THIS BILL MUST BE STOPPED!!
Have a look at these gems:
"Sec. 6. Maximum Amount of Authorized Purchases.
The Secretary's authority to purchase mortgage-related assets under this Act shall be limited to $700,000,000,000 outstanding at any one time"
"Sec. 8. Review.
Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency."
"Sec. 10. Increase in Statutory Limit on the Public Debt.
Subsection (b) of section 3101 of title 31, United States Code, is amended by striking out the dollar limitation contained in such subsection and inserting in lieu thereof $11,315,000,000,000."
Anyone know if Rooster Rock has firepits?
I just got a bee in my bonnet today for some reason about the following question:
What is the common name for the four-dimensional equivalent of a sphere?
Through the practice of Google-Fu, I found "4-sphere" (or N-sphere if you don't want to be locked into four dimensions) and "hypersphere" (for anything over 2 dimensions, apparently), but it seems to me that there must be some other name. Something that you might find in a sci-fi novel, or with latin roots or something.
I was thinking that maybe it was a Klein Bottle, but that's more analagous to a mobius strip. Nothing about all points on the surface being equidistant from a single point.
Anyway, I think I've used up my nerd quotient, so I'll stop here, but if anyone has a cool name they can suggest, that'd be cool.
Best flea markets and swap meets in the Portland Metro area? I'm looking as a seller and as a buyer. Thanks!
Howdy. Got a question for my fellow Portlanders. I have a (nearly) 10 month old daughter, and I would really like to go out with out her and my husband and have a beer and maybe a game of pool. I don't wanna get drunk, and I have no plans to bring her into the Triple Nickel or some place similar. I'm a little sketchy about bringing her into even a non-smoking bar (babies and bars don't really mesh, I guess). So, does anyone know of any family-friendly type place with beer and pool or salt-board type games?
Sunday night, Industrial East Side, esplanade entrance under I-5 at the end of Salmon. There was a neo-hippie-pagan homeless party of some kind happening. Is this a regular thing or just a random fall evening in Portland?
