oh billy

Is there such a thing as a shame-filled plug?

I'm moving here from Vancouver this month (hopefully), and I'd love to meet some new people. For the sake of not being redundant (also I'm lazy) here's a link to a craigslist ad I just wrote:


Yeah this is a little lame I realize, but I figure I'm already so deep in I might as well keep going and ask for recommendations for fun things to do here. By fun things I don't mean stuff anyone with a pulse enjoys, I know how to google movie theaters or coffee houses or whatever...I guess I'm under the impression that there are a bunch of secret awesome places only locals know about like underground restaurants with free steaks or warehouses with roller coasters hidden inside. I'm really interested in just about anything, from art galleries to ultimate frisbee leagues. Anyway, all input is appreciated...thanks!

Somebody on here's gotta know.

Okay, so we watched the Canadian documentary movie "Stupidity" here at the house today, and we were all gobsmacked by a little snippet of what looked like an old propaganda film, that appeared to contain this line:

"... each new scientific development in the weapons of war presents a new challenge. But the people of Portland, through working together, are ready."

Am I hearing this quote right? And does anybody have any idea what film this is from? File is here:

Yet another "hey look at me" plug

If you have access to an issue of the Oregonian today, look for a a one-page color fundraising insert for Albertina Kerr. They used one of my photos (I donated the use) and they were kind enough to give me name credit. They also used a version of the photo on their site

If you're a curious sort and want to see the original, unmodified pic, it's at:

And if you're inspired by my artistry, and have some cash to spare, you could donate to Albertina Kerr.

Damn Cooks,

I'm making an apple pie and totally overestimated the amount of apples needed. I compensated by snacking on slices, but I still ended up with about a pound of apples covered in apple pie filling goop that is currently sitting in my fridge.

Any recommendations on how to put those to delicious use? The answer ideally does not include me making any more pie dough, or I'd go for hand pies.
