One

(no subject)

Hey DP!

I'm in search of a painting class. Oil or acrylics. I'm not really interested in painting landscapes or anything, just learning more about color, technique, style, etc. Ideally around the N or NE, but I'm flexible on that. Mostly just looking to have fun and learn a little bit more about painting. And, you know, paint something.

Recommendations?

day laborers and moving

Hey gang. I have a super heavy sleeper sofa I need to move from one side of town to the other, and then up an interior staircase and into a spare room.

Anyone have any experience hiring a few day laborers to assist with this kind of thing? Good idea / bad idea? I see folks wanting work in a couple spots around the city on weekends, but is there anywhere I should look for some assistance on a weeknight? Anything else I should keep in mind?

i have a music question!

so, i know the pacific northwest has a good "indie rock" (i'm just going to call it that because i'm not good at the whole music genre-labeling thing) music scene, good "indie" bands, punk bands, whatever. the thing is, i can't ever get into it. i've tried for the last three years to enjoy this music, with an open mind, and beyond a couple bands, i dislike it.

however, a couple months ago i discovered the blue scholars, a seattle-area (i think? i know they're northwest) rap group, and i love them. so, does anyone listen to any good northwest rappers/rap groups? i'd love to hear about them, and what your favorite songs are so i can give them a listen.

also, does portland have any kind of hip-hop scene that is worth paying attention to? or do i need to head up to seattle to see some good shows?
