          The Test Facing Democratic Socialist Julia Salazar in New York      Cache   Translate Page      

For decades, the New York City Democratic machine has capitalized off of low-turnout elections to keep its members in power. However, a new generation of progressive New Yorkers is rejecting that model, arguing that mobilizing new voters can drive electoral success. As Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s shocking victory in June highlighted, this “mobilize the base” strategy can upend the political establishment.

Like Ocasio-Cortez, Julia Salazar, a 27-year-old state senate candidate, is mounting a volunteer-driven challenge to a long-time incumbent, running as an open democratic socialist and rejecting corporate money. In a city that has been confronted with a systemic housing crisis and mass displacement, many candidates from the Left see machine-affiliated incumbents as complacent and vulnerable to populist criticisms. Salazar is no different. At the heart of her campaign is a critique of her opponent’s proximity to New York real estate interests and his role in propelling a rent crisis in the district. Rent stabilization laws in New York State are up for renewal in 2019, making this a decisive election year. Among Salazar’s chief platform planks are ending vacancy decontrol and instituting universal rent stabilization.

Salazar’s opponent is 16-year incumbent Martin Dilan in New York’s 18th Senate District, which includes parts of Greenpoint, Williamsburg, Bushwick and Cypress Hill. Dilan is one of the last holdouts of the political machine of Vito Lopez, the now deceased former Brooklyn Democratic Party Chair. Lopez was a state assemblyman for 30 years. During his tenure, he turned his nonprofit, the Ridgewood Bushwick Senior Citizens Council, into a formidable political operation. At its height in 2010, the RBSCC held $100 million in city and state contracts and engaged in classic quid-pro-quo politics. Lopez resigned as Brooklyn Democratic Chair and Assemblyman in 2013, after facing highly credible sexual harassment allegations. Dilan and his son, Councilman Erik Dilan, were among the largest beneficiaries of Lopez’s machine, funneling taxpayer money to RBSCC in exchange for political support.

But Lopez’s machine is no more, and there are strong reasons to see strength behind Salazar’s challenge. In 2014, and again in 2016, activist Debbie Medina mounted spirited challenges against Dilan’s proximity to real-estate interests and his failure to effectively respond to skyrocketing rents. However, the summer before the September 2016 primary, child abuse allegations surfaced against Medina. Despite losing critical endorsements and suffering from a crippling deficit of volunteers, Medina still won nearly 41 percent of the vote.

Clearly, voters in the 18th District are open to change. The question is whether Julia Salazar can capitalize on it.

Past under scrutiny

Salazar’s personal biography has come under scrutiny in recent weeks. Her identity as an immigrant, her assertions of growing up working-class and her Judaism have all been questioned, revealing a complex series of accounts from the candidate that could be characterized as everything from deliberately misleading statements to forgivable lapses of judgment. It was additionally revealed that she was previously a leader in right-wing activism at Columbia University, and that she was questioned over impersonating a family friend to access their financial information. As with many questions of personal identity, the story is not entirely black and white.

While Salazar’s website referred to the candidate as a “proud immigrant,” in August it was revealed that she was actually born in Miami, Fla., though she traveled back and forth between the United States and Colombia as a child. Salazar says she “never intended to misrepresent my personal narrative or my immigration status,” and that while several outlets, and even she herself, had made reference to her immigrant status, her statements were the product of imprecise early childhood memories and a strong identification with Colombia and her father’s family. She expressed regret that she hadn’t more thoroughly interrogated her memories as she began to run for public office, saying that “when I set out to run for State Senate I wasn’t critically thinking about my biography, specifically what has been challenged in my early childhood.”

Her early childhood has come under scrutiny from another angle: her class status. She has positioned herself as coming from a working-class background. The first time we talked she described how her economic conditions are foundational to her politics. However, her father worked as a pilot, and her brother has strongly contested her narrative of a working-class upbringing. Salazar admits that her early childhood, until age six, when her parents separated, was not one of economic uncertainty. However, she told me that after the separation, her father paid child support inconsistently at best, and the family relied on Social Security once he became disabled. She said that her mother had to return to college and made $17,000 dollars in one year while raising two children, and that her family’s “economic status varied greatly throughout my upbringing. The background that my parents came from, paired with the financial experience I had in elementary school or middle school are very safe to describe as working class.”

She says that “the lines aren’t fixed when it comes to class status. But when I talk about having working-class or middle-class experience, I mean that I understand the financial insecurity that people in my district face.” She says that “it’s not helpful or meaningful to debate whether I was poor,” but rather that her campaign is “about building solidarity with people who have to work for a living with families that know that if someone gets sick they could lose their home.” Salazar claims that class isn’t a rigid identity, but that it varies with economic status, and the combination of financial precarity and security in her upbringing complicates discussions of her class.

Ultimately, she believes that “voters are more concerned with my record as an advocate and my ability to fight for constituents.”

Which is why her history as a right-wing college activist bears addressing. After first registering as a Republican in Florida in 2008, Salazar says that after moving to New York she intended to register as an Independent but instead accidentally registering for the state’s Independence Party.

At Columbia University, she was involved with both pro-Israel and pro-life activism. Columbia is where she embraced the Jewish faith, which she says was spurred on by the death of her father, who “had made allusions to a Sephardic surname.” Her integration in Jewish life at Columbia, through organizations like Challah for Hunger and Hillel, encouraged her to visit Israel. The details of her trip have also been a source of controversy about her Jewish identity, as the trip was planned by Christians United for Israel rather than a Jewish organization. Nevertheless, she cites her visit to Israel, in 2012, and seeing the separation barrier particularly, as disabusing her of her firm pro-Israel stance. Being “very disturbed by the violence I saw there,” she says she made “a significant decision to reject pro-Israel advocacy.”

She described her experience in pro-life activism, with Columbia Right to Life, as echoing her other right-wing commitments. Her allegiance was shifted in the controversy around the creation of a Columbia abortion fund, which every student would pay into as part of their university-provided health plan. Salazar led the Support Pregnant Students Initiative, aiming to provide support for students who choose to keep their pregnancy. After she published an op-ed in the Columbia Spectator arguing her position, she was confronted by a number of close friends who, through a series of “very hard conversations,” led her to “realize I was deeply miseducated and wrong about abortion.”

Moving left

When asked whys he hadn’t made her political evolution part of her campaign story, Salazar says she was more focused on the community that had encouraged her to run for office, and that she “didn’t think about my own narrative so much and my own evolution.”

As an outgrowth of her political evolution, Salazar helped organize a rent strike against an abusive and absent landlord during her junior year at Columbia. She and her fellow tenants took their landlord to court and won. Her victory, though, was fleeting: when her lease ended a few months later, her landlord declined to renew it. Accordingly, the event holds two meanings for her: while “it was empowering to see how people without law degrees, without any institutional power were able to fight management and win,” she “was still being displaced. It was a very vivid example of the need to fight for systemic changes to systemic problems.”

Salazar says that experience helped propel her run for office.

When we spoke the first time, Salazar expressed how she was “tired of having to ask the same elected officials over and over again to do the right thing.” Her work in Albany and New York City, along with the support of her community and fellow organizers, convinced her that the solution wasn’t bird-dogging her representatives, but replacing them.

Changing landscape

Julia Salazar’s campaign is just one hint that change may be on the horizon in the New York State Senate. Members of the Independent Democratic Conference, (IDC) a group of Democratic senators who caucused with Republicans for the past eight years, are appearing increasingly weak in the face of strong primary challenges. And, if he wins reelection, Gov. Andrew Cuomo may find himself between a rock and a hard place come 2019.

According to Bill Lipton, the New York State Director of the Working Families Party, a progressive, or even a Democratic majority in the state senate is just what Cuomo has been trying to avoid. “Andrew Cuomo has spent the last eight years doing everything he can to keep progressives out of power in Albany—from allowing the Senate Republicans to gerrymander their own districts after promising repeatedly not to, to refusing to campaign for Senate Democrats, to helping the IDC steal the Democratic majority away in 2012, to fostering division between IDC and the Democratic caucus.” This arrangement has allowed Cuomo to act as the power broker in the state senate while both helping block progressive legislation and retaining his Democratic credentials.

Lipton claims Cuomo has utilized this arrangement to masquerade as a progressive while keeping legislative threats to his moneyed friends dead in the water, all the while joking to Senate Republicans about how little he supports Democratic candidates. That Cuomo has managed to build one of the largest campaign war chests in the country through corporate donations speaks to the immense wealth that this arrangement has granted. Lipton says real estate is among the chief interests that pay into this racket: “Real estate is to New York what coal is to West Virginia—the lifeblood of oligarchy.”

Housing crisis

It may be difficult for many residents of the 18th District to square their soaring rents with the $200,000 in real estate money Sen. Dilan has raised during his tenure in office, especially in a district ravaged by pro-real estate legislation and ensuing gentrification. Dilan’s vote has been instrumental in both implementing vacancy decontrol in 1994 as a city councilman, and defusing attempts to repeal the law in 2010 as a state senator. Vacancy decontrol, which allows landlords to freely raise the rent on vacant rent-stabilized units, is at the center of the city-wide housing crisis. According to Salazar, the 18th District alone loses tens of thousands of rent stabilized and controlled units every year.

And considering the state of New York City’s rent laws, which are set on the state level, that isn’t surprising. Once rent on an apartment reaches $2,733.75, landlords can “free” a unit from its rent-stabilized status and instead charge market rates.

There are two main ways that landlords jack up the rent: when a renovation is made owners are allowed a commensurate increase in rent, and the rent can be raised when a tenant moves out. In practice, both of these regulations produce perverse incentives. In the first case, landlords are given very little oversight when reporting the added value of a renovation, meaning they often make small improvements while disproportionately increasing rent. As for the second, landlords are incentivized to rent to short-term tenants, like college students and young people who don’t have ties to the neighborhood, and to harass their rent-stabilized tenants.

The scale of tenant abuse is staggering: A New York Times investigation found stories of landlords who punched holes in the roofs and walls of occupied rent-controlled units, bombarded tenants with eviction suits and harassed them with loud construction. The investigation discovered that the agencies responsible for regulation were “fractionalized, divided among three city and state agencies” and “essentially passive.” This regulatory environment has had devastating impacts on the 18th District. In Bushwick, a family living on the median yearly income, just over $42,000, would have to spend more than 60 percent of their income to afford the average rent of a two-bedroom unit. In Williamsburg, that number is 65 percent.

While Dilan argues that he never thought his vote would come to harm his own constituents, Jennifer Lenow, a member of NYC-DSA’s organizing committee for the Brooklyn Housing Working Group, says that Dilan’s “thousands and thousands from real estate speaks louder than his rhetoric.”

Salazar has been endorsed by the New York City chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, U.S. Rep. Nydia Velazquez and City Council Member Antonio Reynoso, as well as Cynthia Nixon and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Michael Kinnucan, Salazar’s Deputy Campaign Director, is optimistic about her chances, citing the broad dissatisfaction with the political status quo, the support of local activist groups Make the Road Action and New York Communities for Change, and “one of the largest volunteer ground-organizations in the city.”

Polling shows state-wide enthusiasm for large-scale investment in public housing, signaling that New Yorkers would look favorably upon a more proactive approach to confronting the state’s housing crisis.

As part of their New Progressive Agenda Project, Civis Analytics, a data analytics firm, and the think tank Data for Progress (where I am a fellow) have shown that 59 percent of likely 2018 voters in New York support billions of dollars in investment in public housing, even after hearing Republican arguments against it and being presented with an explicit tax pay-for through tax hikes. “These numbers are pretty consistent with the very high levels of support we’ve seen for public housing ballot measures in cities like Portland and Seattle,” says David Shor, head of data science at Civis Analytics’ political practice.

Persona and policy

Salazar’s controversies, meanwhile, have continued in recent days. On September 6, allegations of an affair with former New York Mets player Keith Hernandez and an attempt to impersonate his then-estranged, now divorced wife, Kai, have come to light. Salazar had been family friends with Hernandez, and was arrested for, but ultimately not charged with, the felony impersonation of Kai. According to Salazar’s statement, the lawsuit was entirely the product of a vengeful ex-wife who had gone so far as to impersonate Salazar on the phone in an attempt to frame her for illegally accessing her finances. Kai’s motive, according to Salazar, was that while house-sitting at Kai’s request Salazar had found “a lot of drugs, syringes, and several guns.” Salazar says that after calling Keith and describing the condition of the house, he, along with local police came to document the scene. The next year she was called by local police and interrogated for allegedly impersonating Kai. After not being charged, in 2013, Salazar sued Kai Hernandez for damages and the two parties reached a settlement in 2017.

When asked for comment about the controversies surrounding Salazar, Martin Dilan’s spokesman Bob Liff said that while “Marty has been a progressive and stable champion for residents of the 18th district, his opponent will have to speak for herself.”

A victory by Salazar’s insurgent campaign would offer even more proof that the future of the Democratic Party is multi-racial, decidedly left, community-driven and not beholden to corporate interests. However, the narrative surrounding her has become thick with controversy, misrepresentation and outright lies. While it is quite possible, as many of Salazar’s supporters claim, that the candidate has been victim to a right-wing smear campaign, there remain legitimate questions about how she has publicly presented herself throughout her campaign.

In a district whose neighborhoods are synonymous with gentrification, the question facing voters in the 18th is this: To what extent is representative politics about personality, and to what extent is it about policy? Thursday’s election will help provide an answer.

A great episode to listen to while I cooked butternut squash and sliced baby-head sized tomatoes grown in our tiny garden for dinner. We live in a small apartment in urban Portland (the politics suck, but the people are friendly) and we still try to do everything we can towards self sufficiency with what space we have. I see homesteading as a mindset. Regardless of where you live, you can still adopt those principles for your life.   I was in 7th grade when I heard the news about the towers. Our teacher turned on the news and we all watched in awe as the second tower was hit. I had a classmate who's father worked in the pentagon, who fortunately was ok. We didn't know what the hell was going on and the weight of the attack didn't really dawn on our adolescent minds, but most of us kids at the time came to the same conclusion you did. War. It was obvious.

          Novelist Who Wrote an Essay Called “How to Murder Your Husband” Accused of Murdering Her Husband      Cache   Translate Page      

A 68-year-old romance novelist living in a suburb of Portland who self-published an essay entitled “How to Murder Your Husband” seven years ago was arrested last week on charges of murdering her husband.

Nancy Crampton Brophy was arrested on a preliminary charge of domestic violence murder after her husband was fatally shot on June 2 at the culinary school where he worked. A neighbor told the Oregonian she seemed “hardly fazed” after the death, but prosecutors have kept quiet about their case against her or any possible motive.

“As a romantic suspense writer, I spend a lot of time thinking about murder and, consequently, about police procedure,” Crampton Brophy had written in the essay, according to the Oregonian. “After all, if the murder is supposed to set me free, I certainly don’t want to spend any time in jail.”

In the essay, she also wrote about potential motives, including infidelity and more practical considerations: “Divorce is expensive, and do you really want to split your possessions?”

She added—after saying she didn’t want to actually kill people because she would be bad at keeping the lies straight and because she didn’t want “ blood and brains splattered on my walls”—that she believed “every one of us have it in him/her when pushed far enough.”

If she committed the crime she is accused of, she certainly did not spend the past seven years refining an airtight plan. She is either the world’s worst alleged murderer, or the unluckiest person alive.

Crampton Brophy had been married to her husband, Daniel Brophy, a chef at a Portland culinary school, for 27 years. The Oregonian described him as a beloved instructor with an “offbeat sense of humor” and expertise in mushrooms and gardening. The two “lived a quiet life together in the suburbs, raising chickens and tending a big garden.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z5rwQ8FAXVk How to get away with murder? Maybe don't write a blog post about getting away with murder. Last week, police in Portland arrested 68-year-old Nancy Crampton-Brophy. She is charged with the murder of her 63-year-old husband, chef Daniel Brophy. At 8:30 a.m. on June 2, police and medics arrived at the Oregon Culinary Institute, after students and instructors arriving for class found Brophy suffering from a gunshot wound. The first-responders attempted to revive him but weren't successful. In a press conference that day, police said they were investigating the death as a homicide and that they had no immediate suspects. Crampton-Brophy is a self-published author of romantic suspense novels , many featuring chiseled ex-Navy SEALs — books with "rugged men, strong women and a good story," she touted on her website. There she described her home life — one that read like the satisfying last pages of a romance novel: "I live in the beautiful, green,

    Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his wife Will Hernandez Jersey (http://www.giantscheapstore.com/will-hernandez-jersey-cheap) , the singer Ciara, have joined the effort to bring Major League Baseball to Portland. The Oregonian/OregonLive reports that Portland Diamond Project, the company leading the push, announced Friday that the husband-and-wife celebrities have each invested individually as "owner/investors" in the project. The Diamond Project's leadership has stressed that its effort will take time, estimating an opening day in Portland would come in 2022 at the earliest. MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred has called Portland a candidate to acquire a franchise whether by expansion, which hasn't happened in 20 years, or relocation. Though Wilson is an NFL quarterback, he has a connection to baseball. He played in the minor leagues while in college and practiced with the Texas Rangers during spring training in March. The last round of this year’s Subway Series has been delayed. The season finale between the New York Mets and New York Yankees was postponed because of rain Sunday night and will be made up on Aug. 13 at 7:05 p.m., previously an off day for both teams. The Yankees will be in the middle of a long homestand anyway Alec Ogletree Jersey (http://www.giantscheapstore.com/alec-ogletree-jersey-cheap) , although the makeup game means they’ll now play 20 days in a row during that stretch. The Mets, meanwhile, will make a one-game pit stop in the Bronx between trips to Miami and Baltimore on a lengthy road swing that ends in Philadelphia. With steady rain falling, a tarp covered the infield all evening and play never began. The game was called about an hour after the scheduled 8:05 p.m. start. It was the 42nd postponement in the majors this year, already more than all of last season. Mets ace Jacob deGrom (5-4), who leads the majors with a 1.68 ERA, had been slated to pitch against Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka (7-2, 4.54). But thanks to the bad weather, Aaron Judge and the Bronx Bombers were spared the task of facing deGrom Obi Melifonwu Jersey (http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/obi-melifonwu-jersey-cheap) , who is 0-2 with an 8.03 ERA in two career starts at Yankee Stadium. ”He’s a tough customer, obviously. A great pitcher,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. ”Look, any time we take the field we feel like we have a real good chance no matter who’s out there, especially at home. So you don’t like stacking up these doubleheaders and now a makeup game and those type of things. But obviously, tonight was a tough matchup for sure.” Boone said All-Star righty Luis Severino will stay on his regular turn Monday night at Tampa Bay, with Tanaka going Tuesday. Severino had already traveled down to Florida ahead of the team to get a normal night’s sleep. Veteran left-hander CC Sabathia will be pushed back from Tuesday to Friday, when he will pitch at home against lowly Kansas City on his bobblehead night. ”I think it will be fun,” Sabathia said. ”My mom’s excited about it Sony Michel Jersey (http://www.patriotscheapstore.com/sony-michel-jersey-cheap) , my grandmother’s excited. So I think it will be good.” Sabathia turned 38 on Saturday and the Yankees wanted to take the opportunity to give him extra rest. ”It really benefits him,” Boone said. ”Just with his knee and maintenance.” Sabathia gets lubricant injections to help alleviate discomfort in his troublesome knee. He received one right before the All-Star break and said he thought it was his third one this season. ”The more time I can give that thing and just let the medicine move around, it will react better,” Sabathia said. ”Any time you get a chance to get some rest, I think it’s key – especially for me at this point in the season. I’m welcoming the rest for sure.” The second-place Yankees (63-34) are five games behind major league-leading Boston in the AL East, three in the loss column. Sabathia said it would be ”shocking” if they don’t make a deal before the July 31 trade deadline. ”We always do something,” he explained. ”But I think we have the guys in there if they don’t do anything to get it done.” Last in the NL East, the Mets rescheduled deGrom for Monday night at home against San Diego. Zack Wheeler had originally been slated to start that game. The crosstown rivals split two games over the weekend, giving the Yankees a 3-2 lead in their six-game season series. ROSTER MOVE The Yankees recalled RHP Giovanny Gallegos from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. TRAINER’S ROOM Mets: 3B Todd Frazier (strained left rib cage muscle) is hitting off a tee and could begin ”more intense baseball activities” in the next few days if all goes well Deion Jones Jersey (http://www.falconscheapstore.com/deion-jones-jersey-cheap) , manager Mickey Callaway said. … RF Jay Bruce (right hip) is feeling better and might start baseball activities in the next couple of days, according to Callaway. Yankees: Rookie 2B Gleyber Torres, sidelined since straining his right hip on July 4, is expected to play rehab games Monday and Tuesday at Class A Tampa before rejoining the Yankees on Wednesday at Tampa Bay. — New York Jets Elite Jerseys (http://www.officialusafootballs.com ew-york-jets)
               Comment on Reservoir 3, 1894 by Greg       Cache   Translate Page      
    Adam, at the turn of the century(1900) Portland was the second richest city on the West coast only exceeded by San Francisco and one of the top 10 in the US. Some of the classic measures of a cities wealth and influence is the number of companies headquartered in it, the number of branch offices of prominent companies it has, the number of branch manufacturing plants of national companies and the number of distribution hubs of national companies. Portland had lots in all of these categories in 1900. It was also a major transshipment point for imports and exports on the West Coast.

    Where did Portland get the money for the ambition public works projects at the turn of the century? I know that Portland was ahead of Seattle for a time. Were common taxes enough to fund all the projects?

    The Oregonian, August 7, 1892: "Of Interest to Builders. A New Style of Construction for Concrete Sidewalks, Etc." tells about a new way to build concrete walks and floors. "This method of construction makes a stronger and much more durable walk.... The work is being done by Messrs. Keatinge and Leonard, who have just introduced this style of work in Portland. Their office is room 65, Union block, and Mr. Keatinge said yesterday, while talking to a reporter: "this style of construction is going to revolutionise [sic] the methods now in vogue of laying concrete flooring and sidewalks." An article in the Oregonian two years later (October 1, 1894) says Keatinge and Leonard signed a contract with the Roman Catholic archbishop to build a new cathedral at Davis, Everett, Fifteenth and Sixteenth streets.
              Trey Ball's outfield conversion to highlight Fall Instructional League      Cache   Translate Page      
    A year after being mostly washed out by Hurricane Irma, the Red Sox 2018 Fall Instructional League will open on September 17, running through October 9 and featuring many of the system's top prospects.

    "Fall Instructs," as it is often called, is used to develop players in the low minors and includes both classroom training as well as on-field workouts. The organization will have 55 players in Fort Myers this year, although the game schedule has been noticably slimmed to just nine games, five of which come against the Orioles, with two more each against the Rays and Germany's Under-23 team.

    In the past, the schedule has featured between 12-15 games against the Twins, Rays, and Orioles (14 contests were on the 2016 slate). With teams opting to run fall camps focused more on intra-squad games—including the Twins, who will hold an exclusively intra-squad camp—the schedule has gotten much lighter this year. 

    On the roster of invitees, perhaps most noteworthy is the inclusion of 2013 seventh-overall pick Trey Ball as an outfielder. Thought at the time of his selection to potentially have first-round talent as an outfielder as well as on the mound, it appears that the tall right-hander is making the conversion after limited success as a pitcher. As a reliever in Double-A this season, he posted a 7.58 ERA with 56 strikeouts and 26 walks in 65 1/3 innings.

    Ball had reportedly been taking batting practice for most of the season, and it appeared this transition was in the works when Ball was the designated hitter in Portland's final two games, going 1 for 9 with 6 strikeouts and a memorable game-winning double in the season's penultimate game.

    Fifteen 2018 draftees are on the roster, including the Red Sox' first three selections in third baseman Triston Casas, outfielder Nick Decker, and right-handed reliever Durbin Feltman. Ten of SoxProspects.com's top 20 prospects will participate as well, headlined by third-ranked Tanner Houck (pictured), fifth-ranked Casas, and seventh-ranked CJ Chatham.

    Players on the roster will ready to participate on-field in some capacity, noteworthy given the presence of a number of players who were injured at the end of the season. This list includes pitchers Roniel Raudes (last start June 8) and Alexander Montero (July 6), catcher Roldani Baldwin (last game July 29), Casas (June 25), third baseman Danny Diaz (July 2), shortstop Antoni Flores (August 1), and outfielder Tyler Dearden (August 18). A number of players coming stateside from the Dominican Summer League have also had extended absences, although it is unclear if that was for injury: pitcher Aldo Ramirez (July 17), infielder Ceddanne Rafaela (August 6), and outfielder Angel Maita (August 6).

    Finally, two players in camp—left-hander Josh Taylor and second baseman Esteban Quiroz—will be in camp tuning up for the Arizona Fall League, explaining their invitations despite their advanced status relative to the other players in camp.

    Pitchers (19)

    Yoan Aybar, Eduard Bazardo, Brayan Bello, Durbin Feltman, Tanner Houck, Francisco Lopez-Soto, Chris Machamer, Joan Martinez, Alexander Montero, Andrew Politi, Aldo Ramirez, Roniel Raudes, Yasel Santana, Zach Schellenger, Alex Scherff, Chase Shugart, Miguel Suero, Josh Taylor, Thad Ward.

    The Portland Mercury endorses anything super PC and/or extreme left. I wonder if the union or The Mercury would support a BV employee wearing a MAGA hat, or a “Hilary For Prison!” button? How about a Blue Lives Matter or NRA pin? I’ll take a wild guess and say no, they wouldn’t.

    I’m no right-whacko, but I don’t like extremes of either side. If you ask me, The Mercury has become the left’s version of Breitbart News. SAD!

    veganism is an artifact of extreme affluence and absurd amounts of free time. there are no vegans where famine exists. when you proclaim your veganism all you are really doing is announcing that you have the extraordinary privilege of being picky about what you eat.

              Pac-12 picks: Winless Arizona, UCLA teams have chance to avenge early results      Cache   Translate Page      

    It wouldn’t have been totally unreasonable to think a couple of Pac-12 teams could start the season 0-2. You might have expected those would be the ones coached by Jonathan Smith and Herm Edwards, not by Kevin Sumlin and Chip Kelly.

    Arizona and UCLA have faced stiff competition thus far, but both have chances to finally get into the win column this week – one maybe more so than the other. We predict Arizona vs. Southern Utah, UCLA vs. Fresno State and nine other games taking place throughout the Pac-12 Conference this week.

    UC Davis at Stanford

    No line – Stanford will sit star running back Bryce Love, but it’d be more interesting – and more competitive – if the Cardinal actually loaned him to UC Davis for this game. The pick: Stanford 40, UC Davis 3.

    San Jose State at Oregon

    Oregon by 41½ - The Ducks have already scored 120 points at Autzen Stadium this year, after games against Bowling Green and Portland State. I like the chances of that number reaching 180 come Saturday night. The pick: Oregon 62, SJSU 10.

    New Hampshire at Colorado

    No line – New Hampshire, a team that scored 10 points against Colgate and Maine, visits a Colorado team that dropped a combined 78 points on Colorado State and Nebraska. More stat-padding for Steven Montez, Travon McMillian and Laviska Shenault Jr. The pick:

    Idaho State at California

    No line – A few years ago, Cal took wide receiver Chad Hansen from Idaho State. The Bengals don’t have anyone the Bears would be interested this year, if that gives you some insight into what’ll go down Saturday in Berkeley. The pick: Cal 45, Idaho State 7.

    Oregon State at Nevada

    Nevada by 3½ – There’s more uncertainty at the quarterback position for Oregon State, so the Beavers may need another big day from running back Jemar Jefferson if they hope to keep pace with a Nevada attack that scored 72 points in its season opener. The pick: Nevada 41, Oregon State 38.

    USC at Texas

    Texas by 3½ - Part III of Trojans-Longhorns couldn’t be more entertaining than Part I or Part II, could it? Anything seems possible when these two knock heads. The pick: Texas 31, USC 30.

    Eastern Washington at Washington State

    No line – Maybe Wyoming wasn’t the Cougars’ toughest nonconference challenge after all. Gage Gubrud has some fond memories of Martin Stadium, but how will the Eastern Washington QB operate without Cooper Kupp, Kendrick Bourne and Shaq Hill? The pick: will be in Saturday’s paper.

    Washington at Utah

    Washington by 6½ - A preview of the Pac-12 championship here in week three? It’s possible, especially after seeing Utah’s top challengers in the South, USC and Arizona, stumble the first two weeks. Both defenses are elite, but the Huskies are more talented and experience on offense. The pick: UW 27, Utah 21.

    Arizona State at San Diego State

    ASU by 5 – Manny Wilkins and N’Keal Harry are emerging as one of the top quarterback-wide receiver combos in the country and expect to see big numbers from both against a SDSU team that surrendered 226 receiving yards to JJ Arcega-Whiteside a couple weeks ago. The pick: ASU 38, SDSU 28.

    Fresno State at UCLA

    Fresno State by 1 – Chip Kelly has never started a college season 0-3, but the Bruins have conceded 75 points in two games and now face a Fresno State that’s two weeks removed from hanging 79 on Idaho. Upset special! The pick: Fresno State 34, UCLA 31.

    Southern Utah at Arizona

    No line – A bottom-dweller from the Big Sky Conference is just what Khalil Tate and Kevin Sumlin needed after early-season losses to BYU and Houston. This one shouldn’t be close. “Shouldn’t.” The pick: Arizona 55, Southern Utah 21.

    NEW ORLEANS - The NBAs best and brightest head to the Big Easy on Sunday night to play in the 63rd All-Star Game at Smoothie King Center. Womens Lakers Jerseys . You can watch all the action on TSN with coverage beginning at 7pm et/4pm pt. LeBron James of the Miami Heat was the leading vote-getter as he starts his 10th All-Star Game. "Its great being here, man, and its nice to see all your fellow guys around the league, both East and West," said James. "Im honored to be here once again and excited to be part of this." He is joined in the Easts starting lineup by Heat teammate Dwyane Wade (10th appearance), Clevelands Kyrie Irving (2nd), Indianas Paul George (2nd) and New Yorks Carmelo Anthony (7th). The leading vote-getter out West was Oklahoma Citys Kevin Durant, who finished second to James in overall voting and will be in his fifth All-Star Game. Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors is going to make his All-Star debut as he earned the most votes in the West backcourt. Kobe Bryant was voted into the other starting spot, despite playing just six games this season. His knee injury precluded him from participating and commissioner Adam Silver named New Orleans Pelicans Anthony Davis to replace him on the roster. Head coach Scott Brooks of OKC selected Bryants replacement in the starting lineup and that man will be Brooks former player, James Harden of the Houston Rockets. LA Clipper Blake Griffin (4th appearance) and Minnesotas Kevin Love (3rd) round out the starting five. Pacers skipper Frank Vogel will coach the Eastern Conference team. The reserves, as always, were selected by the conference coaches and offered little in terms of controversy. Much like the fan vote, coaches were tasked with selecting two backcourt players, three frontcourt players and two wild-cards. The visitors from the East will have newbies in Washingtons John Wall, Torontos DeMar DeRozan and Atlantas Paul Millsap. Miamis Chris Bosh will make his ninth appearance and fellow veterans Joe Johnson of the Brooklyn Nets (7th), Indianas Roy Hibbert (2nd) and Chicagos Joakim Noah (2nd) complete the second unit. The Western reserves are a more veteran-laden group with Dallas Dirk Nowitzki (12th), Clipper Chris Paul (7th), San Antonios Tony Parker (6th) and Dwight Howard (8th) of the Houston Rockets. Portland has two representatives in LaMarcus Aldridge (3rd) and Damian Lillard (1st). Davis will make his All-Star debut in just his second season. "I stayed in the gym last summer trying to get better, and Im doing the same thing this summer. And I have a lot to work on," said Davis. "And to be selected in the All-Star Game and the numbers that Im putting up is amazing, but I know that I have a lot to do." The West is on a three-game winning streak. Last year, Paul earned MVP honors with 20 points, 15 assists and four steals as the West prevailed, 143-138 in Houston. Durant became the first player in history to score 30-plus points in three straight All-Star games. One of the most intriguing aspects of this matchup, (other than both teams in sleeved uniforms), is with the new voting regulations, the East doesnt have a traditional big man in the starting lineup. James has a wide array of post moves and he may be forced to jump center. He, Anthony and George might have a hard time matching up with the much bigger frontline of Durant, Griffin and Love. "I guess it would probably help more, but Im okay with the way its done," coach Vogel said of fans no longer voting for a center. The West has taken four of the last five meetings and five of the last seven.

              There is nothing less appealing about the NBA than its predictability. [url=http://ww      Cache   Translate Page      
    There is nothing less appealing about the NBA than its predictability. Ronnie Harrison Jaguars Jersey . At the start of any season, anyone with the slightest basketball IQ can identify roughly half-a-dozen teams that have a true chance of winning a championship. That team that no one saw coming raising the Larry OBrien Trophy at the end of the season? Well, it never happens. And while there are always surprises from year-to-year, teams that rocket up the standings over the course of a season or two without a major overhaul are rare. Its a sport where it can be a very long and hard road going from being really bad to being very good, especially if youre a team that isnt lucky enough to land a superstar, one of those players who can turn a teams fortunes almost with his presence alone. All of which makes the Toronto Raptors turnaround over the course of a little more than 12 months that much more amazing. Two seasons ago this week, the Raptors were 4-15 after 19 games. A year ago, they were 7-12. Right now, they are 15-4, best record in the Eastern Conference. Things like that just dont happen in the NBA, where success follows the obvious movement of talent around the league. The NBA is the easiest league to determine who will be good and who will be bad at the start of a season. And at the start of last season, there was no shortage of those predicting the Toronto Raptors would be very bad, and for quite a while. It would be years by the time they next made the playoffs, and by then, there would be hardly anyone from this roster still on it. Maybe Jonas Valanciunas. The Raptors would have to tank a season or two or three and hope to land one of those generational talents around whom they could build for better times. None of that happened. And yet here are the Raptors, having defied almost every rule of the universe when it comes to how the NBA works, suddenly being recognized as one of the better teams in the NBA, the best Toronto team ever, and an apparent legitimate contender to represent the East in an NBA Final next spring. Think about all the counterintuitive qualities of this team: - It went from bad to good without anyone seeing it coming - It did so over the course of essentially one season - It has no superstar player Some may be ready to suggest Kyle Lowry has become an NBA superstar, although even that notion itself is counterintuitive since NBA players rarely blossom into superstars in their late 20s. The whole thing is part genius, part accident, part chemistry and part smarts. It took luck and timing and a special group of players who dont see themselves as too good to be playing in Toronto. But somehow its worked and we continue to be treated to the kind of phenomenon that is ever so rarely witnessed in the NBA. Will Richardson Jaguars Jersey . A broadcast source said the deal is for five years. The agreement calls for a minimum of 17 regular-season games as well as the East and West Division finals being broadcast annually on ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNEWS. Logan Cooke Jaguars Jersey . It was the most lopsided loss in Lakers history. Darren Collison had a team-high 24 points while starting at shooting guard for the injured Jamal Crawford. Chris Paul added 13 points and 11 assists for the Clippers, who apparently are trying to make up for decades of humiliation at the hands of the Lakers all in one season; theyve won the last two meetings by a combined 84 points. http://www.jaguarsfansclub.com/Black-DJ-...ml?cat=980 .

              Savage Love: Gay and Lonely      Cache   Translate Page      
    by Dan Savage

    I am a gay man in my late 50s and have never been in a relationship. I am so lonely, and the painful emptiness I feel is becoming absolutely unbearable. In my early 20s, I hooked up off and on, but it never developed into anything. I have always told myself that’s okay; I’m not a people person or a relationship kind of guy. I have a few lesbian friends but no male friends. I have social anxiety and can’t go to bars or clubs. When hookup apps were introduced, I used them infrequently. Now I go totally unnoticed or am quickly ghosted once I reveal my age. Most nonwork days, my only interactions are with people in the service industry. I am well-groomed, employed, a homeowner, and always nice to people. I go to a therapist and take antidepressants. However, this painful loneliness, depression, aging, and feeling unnoticed seem to be getting the best of me. I cry often and would really like it all to end. Any advice?

    Lonely Aging Gay

    “In the very short term, LAG needs to tell his therapist about the suicidal ideation,” said Michael Hobbes. “In the longer term, well, that’s going to take a bit more to unpack.”

    Hobbes is a reporter for HuffPost and recently wrote a mini-book-length piece titled “Together Alone: The Epidemic of Gay Loneliness.” During his research, Hobbes found that, despite growing legal and social acceptance, a worrying percentage of gay men still struggle with depression, anxiety, and suicidal ideation.

    Loneliness, Hobbes explained to me, is an evolutionary adaptation, a mechanism that prompts us humans—members of a highly social species—to seek contact and connection with others, the kind of connections that improve our odds of survival.

    “But there’s a difference between being alone and being lonely,” said Hobbes. “Being alone is an objective, measurable phenomenon: You don’t have very many social contacts. Being lonely, on the other hand, is subjective: You feel alone, even when you’re with other people. This is why advice like ‘Join a club!’ or ‘Chat with your waitress!’ doesn’t help lonely people.”

    The most effective way to address loneliness, according to Hobbes’s research, is to confront it directly.

    “LAG may just need to get more out of the relationships he already has,” said Hobbes. “He has a job, friends, a therapist, a life. This doesn’t mean that his perceptions are unfounded—our society is terrible to its elders in general and its LGBTQ elders in particular—but there may be opportunities in his life for intimacy that he’s not tapping into. Acquaintances LAG hasn’t checked in on for a while. Random cool cousins LAG never got to know. Volunteering gigs you fell out of. It’s easier to reanimate old friendships than to start from scratch.”

    Another recommendation: Seek out other lonely guys—and there are lots of them out there.

    “LAG isn’t the only gay guy who has aged out of the bar scene—so have I—and struggles to find sex and companionship away from alcohol and right swipes,” said Hobbes. “His therapist should know of some good support groups.”

    And if your therapist doesn’t know of any good support groups—or if you don’t feel comfortable telling your therapist how miserable you are, or if you’ve told your therapist everything and they haven’t been able to help—find a new therapist.


    I’m a fortysomething gay male. I’m single and cannot get a date or even a hookup. I’m short, overweight, average looking, and bald. I see others, gay and straight, having long-term relationships, getting engaged, getting married, and it makes me sad and jealous. Some of them are jerks—and if them, why not me? Here’s the part that’s hard to admit: I know something is wrong with me, but I don’t know what it is or how to fix it. I’m alone and I’m lonely. I know your advice can be brutal, Dan, but what do I have to lose?

    Alone And Fading

    “AAF said to be brutal, so I’m going to start there: You might not ever meet anyone,” said Hobbes. “At every age, in every study, gay men are less likely to be partnered, cohabiting, or married than our straight and lesbian counterparts. Maybe we’re damaged, maybe we’re all saving ourselves for a Hemsworth, but spending our adult lives and twilight years without a romantic partner is a real possibility. It just is.”

    And it’s not just gay men. In Going Solo: The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising Appeal of Living Alone, sociologist Eric Klinenberg unpacked this remarkable statistic: More than 50 percent of adult Americans are single and live alone, up from 22 percent in 1950. Some are unhappy about living alone, but it seemed that most—at least according to Klinenberg’s research—are content.

    “Maybe there is something wrong with AAF, but maybe he’s just on the unlucky side of the statistics,” said Hobbes. “Finding a soul mate is largely out of our control. Whether you allow your lack of a soul mate to make you bitter, desperate, or contemptuous is not. So be happy for the young jerks coupling up and settling down. Learn to take rejection gracefully—the way you want it from the dudes you’re turning down—and when you go on a date, start with the specificity of the person sitting across from you, not what you need from him. He could be your Disney prince, sure. But he could also be your museum buddy or your podcast cohost or your afternoon 69er or something you haven’t even thought of yet.”

    I am a 55-year-old gay male. I am hugely overweight and have not had much experience with men. I go on a variety of websites trying to make contact with people. However, if anyone says anything remotely complimentary about me, I panic and run. A compliment about my physical appearance? I shut down the profile. I don’t like being like this. I just believe in being honest. And if I’m honest, I’m ugly. The face, even behind a big-ass beard, is just not acceptable. I have tried therapy, and it does nothing. How do I get past being ugly and go out and get laid?

    Unappealing Giant Loser Yearns

    You say you’re ugly, UGLY, but there are some people who disagree with you—the people who compliment you on your appearance, for instance.

    “I’m not sure I even believe in the word ‘ugly’ anymore,” said Hobbes. “No matter what you look like, some percentage of the population will be attracted to you. Maybe it’s 95 percent or maybe it’s 5 percent, but they are out there. When you find them, do two things: First, believe them. Second, shut up about it.”

    In other words: Just because you wouldn’t want to sleep with you, UGLY, that doesn’t mean no one wants to sleep with you.

    “I remember reading an interview with Stephen Fry, where he said that when he first started out as an actor, people would come up to him and say, ‘You were so great in that play!’ and his first response would be, ‘No, I was terrible,’” said Hobbes. “He thought he was being modest, but what he was really doing, he realized later, was being argumentative. Eventually, he started to just say, ‘Thank you.’”

    Hobbes thinks you should try to be like Fry, a big dude with a cute husband: “The next time someone tells him they’re into big dudes with beards, don’t argue, don’t panic, and don’t hesitate. Just say ‘thank you’ and let the conversation move on.”

              The 27 Best Movies and Shows to Watch in Portland: Sept 14-26      Cache   Translate Page      
    From Ursula K. Le Guin to American Vandal. by Mercury Things to Do Staff
    MEANS WE RECOMMEND IT. Theater locations are accurate Friday-Thursday, unless otherwise noted. Movie times are updated daily and are available here.

    American Vandal: Season 2
    Shot in Portland but set in Bellevue, Washington, the second season of Netflix’s true-crime mockumentary is just as clever and addictive as the first. This time, earnest high-schooler documentarians Peter Maldonado (Tyler Alvarez) and Sam Ecklund (Griffin Gluck) take their investigation skills to St. Bernadine’s Catholic School, where, ever since a tragedy dubbed “The Brownout,” the student body has been terrorized by a splattery series of “poop crimes” perpetrated by “The Turd Burglar.” The suspects and victims are numerous, from beloved basketball star DeMarcus (Melvin Gregg) to vest-wearing, tea-sipping Kevin “Shit Stain” McClain (Travis Tope); in their unflagging quest for the truth, Peter and Sam dig deep into teachers’ dubious alibis and students’ revealing emoji habits. This season is a slower burn than the first, but over the course of its eight episodes, its perfectly played characters prove deeper and better, including “a theater kid who lives in the friend zone” and a man known only as “Hot Janitor.” While Peter and Sam are stymied by secrets, lies, and possible sabotage (Mrs. Wexler, St. Bernadine’s dean of students, repeatedly refuses their requests for an interview), the duo’s intrepid reporting and keen crime-scene analysis (“That is way too big for dogshit”) ensures the Turd Burglar’s identity will be discovered. Like the first, this season of American Vandal is consistently hilarious, but it’s also sneakily, subtly emotional—you’re going to end up caring about all these awkward teen weirdos, and, of course, very invested in who had the motive and the means to mastermind the Brownout. (Available Fri Sept 14, Netflix) ERIK HENRIKSEN

    Blaze
    Directed by Ethan Hawke, Blaze explores the legacy of country singer/songwriter Blaze Foley, who belonged to the same scene as Townes Van Zandt, but was murdered before many people got to know his name. There’s plenty of mythology surrounding Foley and his hillbilly charm—he was known for wearing duct tape on the tips of his cowboy boots—but Ben Dickey’s raw performance makes the focus the flawed, tender man behind the songs (Lucinda Williams once called Foley “a genius and a beautiful loser,” which pretty much nails it). The film’s best moments involve his relationship with actress Sybil Rosen (Alia Shawkat) and the time they spent living together in a treehouse in Georgia, but those get cut off due to frequent jumps to sepia-toned flashbacks. That nonlinear narrative also kind of makes sense, though, given the fact that Blaze’s history was lived by people who were often engulfed in a cloud of cigarette smoke and suffering from whiskey amnesia. It’s not the first time Hawke has made a film about a forgotten musician—his 2014 directorial debut Seymour: An Introduction retraced the life of classical pianist Seymour Bernstein. Blaze isn’t particularly remarkable, but the attention given to Foley’s love story and the toll of his addiction are quietly gripping. (Opens Fri Sept 21) CIARA DOLAN

    BoJack Horseman: Season 5
    While all you tantrum-throwing assholes were setting McDonalds on fire for packets of liquid salt in fealty to the diminished, sickly cynical shine of Rick and Morty, animation fans of a more sophisticated bent were indulging the dark sweetness of BoJack Horseman, a show that began as a satire of celebrity and has, over the course of four seasons, become a tightly plotted, painfully insightful, and emotionally draining examination of depression, addiction, and how to let yourself enjoy what brief rewards you earn in the struggle to be better than you are. Starring Will Arnett as a brown horse and Amy Sedaris as a pink cat. (Available Fri Sept 14, Netflix) BOBBY ROBERTS

    Crazy Rich Asians
    Crazy Rich Asians is the first major American motion picture starring a predominantly Asian cast since The Joy Luck Club came out in 1993. That is BONKERS, and it makes this film’s release noteworthy. Great! Let’s talk inclusion! I love it. Thumbs up, Hollywood! Now let’s talk about the next most important thing: Crazy Rich Asians is romantic comedy gold that should be celebrated not only for its cast but also for its perfect execution of light, breezy escapism. (Now playing) ELINOR JONES

    Fags In The Fast Lane
    The Portland premiere of Josh Collins’ campy, unapologetically gay-as-fuck Australian exploitation entry into the superhero canon, centered on the adventures of Beau Cockslinger and his Mary Men. There is also a magic gold dildo. (Fri Sept 14, Clinton Street Theater)

    Fahrenheit 11/9
    Michel Moore’s latest, about the 2016 election and the presidency of Donald Trump (who lost the popular vote by 2,864,974 votes). Whether it’ll be as sharp as Moore’s great stuff (2002’s Bowling for Columbine) or as self-indulgent as his more recent stuff (2016’s Michael Moore in TrumpLand) is TBD, as it wasn’t screened for critics. (Opens Fri Sept 21)

    Fast Break
    In 1978, Director Don Zavin gave unto thirsty Blazermaniacs a rambly, contemplative, slightly stoned gift of a documentary, Fast Break. There is no real narrative arc, the closest thing to a through-line basically gets abandoned halfway through, and there’s nothing particularly insightful or profound to be gleaned from following the team through their quiet Pacific Northwest adventures following their shock-the-world championship run in 1977. Which is fine, because Fast Break works best as a time-travel device anyway, a shaggy portal back to a Portland that will never exist again, where Maurice Lucas is chilling at the pool, Dave Twardzik is teaching kids the fundamentals, and big bike-riding Bill Walton is doing that charmingly infuriating Bill Walton thing where gallons of melodic syllables rain down over his jutting chin and evaporate into senselessness right around his collarbone. Walton would break his foot in '78 and flee Portland a year later, the team's chemistry slowly soured, and never another Finals would be won, but Fast Break perfectly captures the weirdly serene scenes before it all fell down. (Mon Sept 17, Hollywood Theatre) BOBBY ROBERTS

    Halloween (1978)
    In the final trailer for David Gordon-Green's upcoming sequel to this film, the voice of Jamie Lee Curtis dramatically intones through whispery reverb that "40 years ago, on Halloween night, Michael Myers murdered three people." The statement comes off as oddly comical now, after four decades under the Shape's hulking shadow, with thousands of bodies strewn across the sordid history of a genre he elevated to prominence—three seems like child's play. Hell, Child's Play racked up a bigger body count. But watching John Carpenter's breakout film (the most profitable indie ever made for a very long time), the weight of those three deaths feels heavy indeed. Halloween is considered the father of the slasher, but Carpenter's film maintains its power because it doesn't really slashthat much. It simmers, and stares, and slowly glides into menacing situations and abandons you there until the shadow of Michael Myers swallows you right up. That sort of thing seriously fucked people up in 1978. It still works pretty damned well in 2018. (Sat Sept 22, Hollywood Theatre, followed by a Q&A with star P.J. Soles) BOBBY ROBERTS

    The Land of Steady Habits
    The latest from writer/director Nicole Holofcener (Lovely and Amazing, Enough Said) features a quietly amazing cast (Edie Falco, Connie Britton, Ben Mendelsohn) clumsily hurting and healing each other through a series of mundane-yet-emotionally powerful events. Holofcener is not yet a genre unto herself, but she should be soon. (Available Fri Sept 14, Netflix)

    Life Itself
    Dan Fogelman, the creator and showrunner of the tear-jerking machine that is NBC’s This is Us writes and directs this romantic epic starring Oscar Isaac, Olivia Wilde, Mandy Patinkin, Annette Bening and Antonio Banderas and oh man you’re crying already, aren’t you. God this guy is good. (Opens Fri Sept 21)

    Lizzie
    In a revealing interview with the Huffington Post, Chloë Sevigny said she’d hoped Lizzie—the new film in which she portrays Lizzie Borden, who was accused of murdering her father and stepmother with an ax in 1892 Massachusetts—would be a “rousing, smash-the-patriarchy piece,” and admitted that director Craig William Macneill’s final product isn’t what she’d imagined. Building off the wealthy family’s battle over inheritances and the rumor that Borden killed her parents after they discovered her relationship with the Irish maid Brigid (Kristen Stewart), Lizzie tries to find the seemingly impossible balance between family drama, murder mystery, and queer romance. Though it’s a compelling idea, it doesn’t work—the forbidden love story isn’t fleshed out enough for that motive to be believable. And in 2018, when depictions of queer romance are just starting to get mainstream attention with films like Moonlight and Call Me by Your Name, I’m not sure this hypothetical lesbian link to a grisly murder is really necessary. It’s valuable to reexamine history with the knowledge that women weren’t always granted the opportunity to tell their own stories, but Lizzie is more like a rogue spitballing session that reframes Borden’s infamous crime as a justifiable rebellion against injustice. (Opens Fri Sept 21) CIARA DOLAN

    Love, Gilda
    By anyone’s standards, Gilda Radner is comedy royalty. She was a member of Toronto’s Second City troupe that included fellow future legends like Joe Flaherty and John Candy, the first woman cast to National Lampoon Radio Hour, and the first person hired to be part of Saturday Night Live’s inaugural season. In other words, she’s the ideal candidate for a documentary about her accomplishments and impact on the comedy world. Love, Gilda is not that film. The well-intentioned effort by director Lisa D’Apolito strives to highlight Radner’s fearless energy but gets stuck on her precipitous rise to fame and her many famous lovers, layering it all with a quaint rosy glow. It’s only when the film focuses in on the last part of its subject’s life—as she dealt with multiple bouts with cancer—that it finds depth. (Opens Fri Sept 21) ROBERT HAM

    Mandy
    See review, this issue. (Opens Thurs Sept 13)

    Mulholland Drive
    Jesus holy mother of fuck what the CHRIST is that goddamned thing behind the diner? What IS THAT. UGH. (Starts Fri Sept 14, Academy Theater)

    Noche De Película
    A series of shorts presented by PDX Latinx Pride, celebrating Latinx and LGBTQ communities. (Sun Sept 16, Hollywood Theatre)

    Pipe Organ Pictures: The Cat and the Canary
    1927’s silent horror classic, featuring an original score composed and performed live on the organ by Dean Lemire. (Sat Sept 23, Hollywood Theatre)

    Re-Run Theater: Battlestar Galactica
    40 years ago, an enterprising television producer named Glen A. Larson saw Star Wars and said "I think this could be done as a Mormon allegory on television! I know, I'll write a meanderingly weird ripoff and sell it to ABC. I'll get the old cowboy who sells dog food and make him the star." Thus, Battlestar Galactica was born, a budget-busting one-year wonder starring Lorne Greene that stole Star Wars's visual effects mastermind to realize space battles were eye-meltingly awesome on '70s-era television sets (and still kinda impressive now). But the pilot episode Re-run Theater is screening tonight? Eeeehhhh... Once the Cylon apocalypse concludes in the first third, Galactica keeps asking "so what the hell do we do now" and arriving at increasingly stupid answers like "lets play with this annoying robot dog" and "lets visit a casino planet," and "What if casino planet is really run by insect monsters?" But then the Death Star casino planet explodes, and the movie ends, and all the preceding bullshit just kinda slides off, leaving not much more than faintly warm memories of pew-pew and boom-boom. And for a lot of little kids in the late '70s—that was apparently enough. But don't get it twisted: for as much cheesy fun as this might be (and mileage definitely varies) the 2003 reboot is better in every conceivable way. (Wed Sept 26, Hollywood Theatre) BOBBY ROBERTS

    Repressed Cinema: Psychotronic After School Special
    A carefully curated collection of really fucking weird shit, including a “documentary” about a dystopian future hosted by Orson Welles, an anti-alcohol ’80s film titled The Glug, and a 1975 educational film about the pleasures and dangers of processed food in America. (Tues Sept 18, Hollywood Theatre) BOBBY ROBERTS

    Searching
    What makes Searching—a mystery that takes place predominantly on a series of computer desktops—more than a gimmick is how well it captures the limited but instantly recognizable emotional language of computer use: the typed but unsent message, the search query that’s loaded with dread, the shortened email subject line that belies bad news. All of these are effectively deployed in service of a fairly conventional missing-person story, enabling the film’s limited field of view to capture the feelings of familial isolation, technological confusion, and desire for connection. (Now playing) BEN COLEMAN

    A Simple Favor
    A thriller directed by Paul Feig and starring Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively. (Opens Fri Sept 14)

    Stephen King Double Feature
    It's Stephen King's 71st birthday—and the Hollywood is celebrating with a 35mm double feature of two movies penned by the horror and literary mastermind! First up is 1982's pulpy anthology flick Creepshow, directed by Night of the Living Dead's George Romero; second is 1985's Cat's Eye, directed by Lewis Teague and featuring James Woods, Drew Barrymore, and, of course, an evil troll. Hail to the King, baby. (Fri Sept 21, Hollywood Theatre) ERIK HENRIKSEN

    Supergirl
    God, I want to like 1984's Supergirl. And Supergirl really, really wants you to like it, too. That goodwill is present in the winsome performance of Helen Slater as Kara Zor-El, and it's definitely there in the striking melodies of all-time-great composer Jerry Goldsmith. But goodwill is not enough to make up for Jeannot Zwarc's steamrolled-flat direction, Faye Dunaway's embarrassing turn as the villain, and a story by David Odell that (successfully) does its damndest to undermine everything mythic and majestic about Kara and her world, pouring sugar in Supergirl's empathy engine until she's left stranded in a soupy stew of failed gags and short-circuited drama. The real saboteurs? The film's producers, sworn enemies of goodwill Alexander and Ilya Salkind, whose petty, wrongheaded decision-making process hamstrung Superman II in 1981, kneecapped Superman III in 1983, and unfortunately turfed almost all of Clark's big-screen potential a mere six years after Superman: The Movie, and unfairly damaged Kara's for decades with this disappointing botch-job of a cash-in. There are some joys to be found in Supergirl but too many of them depend on a forgiving audience willing to do the sort of heavy lifting that would leave even the Girl of Steel winded. (Sat Sept 15, Hollywood Theatre) BOBBY ROBERTS

    Swinging Roman Cinema: Il Boom
    Dolce Vita Confidential author Shawn Levy continues his series showcasing the best of Italian cinema with a screening of 1963’s Il Boom, a dark comedy about Italy’s economic revival, directed by Vittoria De Sica. (Wed Sept 26, Hollywood Theatre)

    We the Animals
    We the Animals invites its audience into the exclusive, powerful magic that comes with belonging to a group of three young brothers, running wild in a rural town and trying to make sense of their parents’ abusive relationship. Though similar in theme and feel to 2017’s The Florida Project, We the Animals focuses on the internal view of the youngest brother, Jonah (Evan Rosado). In Justin Torres’ novel, on which the film is based, the actions Jonah undertakes and the repercussions he faces are serious—but director Jeremiah Zagar’s film is more concerned with showing the beauty of youth with all the boring parts cut out. (Now playing) SUZETTE SMITH

    White Boy Rick

    Worlds of Ursula K. Le Guin
    Arwen Curry’s documentary about the brilliant science-fiction and fantasy writer—a Portlander who, before she died earlier this year, wrote some of the century’s greatest and most imaginative stories, novels, and essays, cleverly and soulfully reforging genres long dominated by men. Review forthcoming at portlandmercury.com/film. (Fri Sept 14-Sun Sept 16, NW Film Center’s Whitsell Auditorium, director in attendance)

              The Predator Review: A Janky Shot of Cosmic Slop      Cache   Translate Page      
    Olivia Munn deserves better. On a few different counts. by Bobby Roberts

    In 1987, writers Shane Black and Fred Dekker teamed up to create a nonsensical, ugly little adventure about a team of outcast misfits determined to kill monsters. The outcasts—and the film’s intended audience—were children. Unfortunately, Black’s unique talents (Lethal Weapon, The Nice Guys) don’t lend well to family movies, and the resulting mess, The Monster Squad, was rightfully forgotten by everyone except the sort of snot-nosed dipshit kid who’d say, “Yeah, The Goonies was okay, but it really coulda used more casual homophobia.”

    In 2018, Black and Dekker (ha!) have reunited to write a new adventure about a makeshift monster squad—but this time, instead of foul-mouthed kids, it’s foul-mouthed grownups, and instead of Dracula and the Wolfman (DID YOU KNOW: The Wolfman’s got nards!), it’s Predators!


    This is a $100 million Golan-Globus movie—an incoherent cartoon full of slop and jank drowning out the brief sparks of charm thrown by actors who deserve better.


    What difference do 30 years and an R-rating make? None. Because The Predator is also a nonsensical, ugly misfire full of terrible ideas that would have barely been acceptable in 1987.

    Now, none of the decisions in The Predator are as bad as, say, Black’s choices behind the scenes. (Casting a friend who’s a registered sex offender, not telling anyone he’s a registered sex offender—on a set containing children—and then icing out star Olivia Munn when she spoke up and got the registered sex offender deleted from the movie.) But there are plenty of bad calls in the movie, too, like the decision to make The Predator as authentic an ’80s action flick as possible. The Predator doesn’t sample an outdated clichéd aesthetic; it is that outdated clichéd aesthetic. This is a $100 million Golan-Globus movie—an incoherent cartoon full of slop and jank drowning out the brief sparks of charm thrown by actors who deserve better (including Munn, Sterling K. Brown, and Keegan Michael Key).

    The Predator is the kind of conceptual whiff that, decades ago, Black could blame on poor execution by other directors. But Black directed The Predator—now the blame is his alone. Unless your bar for clever is still set at “Wolfman’s got nards,” there’s not a lot here to make all this effort feel anything other than wasted.

              Mandy Review: Blood, Guts, and Rock ’n’ Roll      Cache   Translate Page      
    (Also featuring Nicolas Cage with a battleaxe.) by Erik Henriksen

    Before all the blood starts spurting and gurgling, Mandy offers an epigraph, its letters bloody red:

    When I die
    Bury me deep
    Lay two speakers at my feet
    Wrap some headphones
    Around my head
    And rock and roll me
    When I’m dead.

    The words go uncredited (they are, turns out, the last words of murderer and kidnapper Douglas Roberts, who was executed in 2005), but as they appear, over fiddly electric guitar and fuzzy synth, they set Mandy’s tone. This is a movie that’s kind of sad, kind of lyrical, and kind of rock ’n’ roll; its first half is an earnest, artsy character study, and its second is a greasy, sordid revenge flick. It also features one of Nicolas Cage’s most bugfuck crazy performances, so: Mandy isn’t for everyone. But for those it is for? It’s a hell of a thing.

    Viewers eager for the rock, though, will have to wait: The first half of Panos Cosmatos’ surreal saga is more self-indulgent prog-rock than blistering metal. A glittery title card—“The Shadow Mountains, 1983 A.D.”—and a spacey, slow hour scored by Jóhann Jóhannsson and King Crimson introduce us to logger Red (Cage) and his artist wife, Mandy (Andrea Riseborough), who live deep in the woods, eat in front of the TV, make dumb jokes, and talk in bed. Red wears a beard and Mandy wears Sabbath and Crüe T-shirts. Every shot looks like a black-light poster, and it’s only a matter of time until something terrible happens.


    One scene, in which our hero lurches and grunts in a bathroom as he chugs vodka in tighty-whities and tube socks, is pure... Nicolas-Caginess in the best possible way.


    Because this is a revenge movie, that terrible thing happens to Mandy: Abducted by a drugged-out, “crazy evil” cult of Jesus freaks, Mandy spurns the advances of their preening leader, Jeremiah (Linus Roache), and is brutally slaughtered before Red’s eyes. Of course she is: While Mandy is mostly unpredictable, it still dumbly clings to the misogynistic tropes of the revenge genre.

    At which point Mandy pivots: Cage’s eyes widen, his voice rises, and, after sliding on some aviators and forging a gleaming battle axe, he grabs a crossbow named “the Reaper” and starts hacking his way through Jesus freaks. The results are gruesome, silly, and satisfying: blood spurts and gurgles, there’s a tiger named Lizzie, and a sword fight in which the swords are chainsaws.

    Cage’s craziest and best performances are in movies that—like him—just fucking commit: Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, Adaptation, Leaving Las Vegas, Raising Arizona. (And... Face/Off? Sure! Face/Off.) Add Mandy to the list, and relish the sight of Cage, face slathered in blood and cocaine, channeling rage, glee, and bone-deep mourning. One scene, in which our hero lurches and grunts in a bathroom as he chugs vodka in tighty-whities and tube socks, is pure... Nicolas-Caginess in the best possible way.

    True, Mandy never quite gels; it’s smeared somewhere between super-specialized art house and broad VHS schlock. It’s alternately creepy, sordid, and goofy; even within scenes, it changes its tempo and switches the chorus. But at its best, Mandy has a rock ’n’ roll magnetism that’s hard to shake—a whisper of wit behind its thudding solos. “You should go in knowing that your odds ain’t that good and you will probably die,” a friend warns Red as he sets out for revenge. Cage doesn’t miss a beat: “Don’t be negative.”

              The Party Review: Who's up for Spittle Cake?      Cache   Translate Page      
    Gorging myself in the park. by D Martin Austin

    Two things readers should have figured out by now is that I have no sense of direction and my memory for faces and simple instructions isn’t much better. Though I make no secret of these inabilities, friends continue to invite me to outdoor parties in large, heavily populated parks. Luckily, today’s toddler birthday is being celebrated at Irving Park. The surrounding area is notably easier to navigate and make frequent U-turns in than the neighborhoods surrounding other Portland parks. I just need to look for clues: white people, balloons, and children. Somehow, I only crash one other party before reaching my goal.

    Food is abundant to the point of approaching excess and includes tofu musubi, pickles, fresh berries, rainbow slaw, ambrosia salad, tortilla chips, and popcorn. I contribute fruit (to the joy of the children) and cured meats (to the silent disgust of the vegans). Beverages are provided in the form of beer, wine, and sparkling water as, without this dynamic trio of thirst quenchers, one cannot claim to host a party.

    The other guests are every bit as eclectic as they are upwardly mobile. Our shady little corner of the park resembles a Pottery Barn catalog showcasing diversity. Every archetype one might hope to see at a modern child’s fourth birthday are here, including that one dude who doesn’t seem to belong. I mean, he definitely doesn’t have kids or marriage prospects, and is unlikely to have ever learned how to tie a tie (for work, special occasions, or casual pretense).

    Maybe he’s related to the guest of honor, or perhaps he’s a friend of the family. Maybe he’s also writing a party column.

    Is he my lone competitor? The only other imbecile blessed with a brilliant plan to dominate the world with the most eloquent of irreverent prose? What if he’s onto me and there can be only one?

    Plotting and scheming his demise is put on hold as the party girl proclaims “doodoo” as the word of the day, and the only word she will speak for the remainder of the party. Rather than foster an irrational grudge against someone I’ve only just met in passing, I decide to distract myself with a game of Frisbee, completely forgetting that of all the unique abilities possessed by a group of four-year-olds, hand-eye coordination isn’t one of them. Still, one child after another demands to join the fray.

    Is this kid even part of our party? I know for a fact that kid isn’t. Where are the parents? Is this child covered in dirt, chocolate, or their own feces? Or perhaps another child’s feces? I throw the Frisbee and try not to think about it.

    “It’s time to cut the cake!”

    Lest we break from tradition, we each sing a different rendition of the birthday song, resulting in a cacophony of childhood patronization, and concluding with a Bronx cheer to the extinguish the candles. From what I’ve been given to understand, this final touch is widely seen as adorable, though I suspect we’d all be disgusted if our server at Shari’s drooled on our pie order—but whatever. Point being, Lil Miss Poopy Pants Frisbee Player referees the rationing of the birthday cake, laying down a clear hierarchy of the birthday girl’s friends and family. Being no fan of spittle cake, I use this opportunity to further gorge myself on more appetizing menu options, prompting me to ask another friend in attendance if I look as bloated as I feel.

    “Pretty sure we’re all bloated.”

    “So yes. Your answer is yes.”

    Unsanitary conditions, bloating, and indigestion aside, I’ve truly enjoyed my time in the sun with fabulous company and even better cuisine. But these kids, though. As a compromise, I give a solid 5 points out of 10 for this child’s party (with 5 points being deducted for the presence of other children).

              The Latest in Portland Hip-Hop      Cache   Translate Page      
    Kayela to the muthafuckin J. by Jenni Moore

    By the looks of her web presence and colorful music videos, 22-year-old Portland rapper KayelaJ (AKA Makayela Johnson) is the real deal. But the young MC doesn’t have a big team behind her—since April, she’s just chosen to invest in herself and take music seriously. It’s a lesson many artists could benefit from: looking legit online attracts opportunities.

    Johnson, a Northeast Portland native, has been rapping since she was seven years old, and performed at PDX Pop Now! for the first time when she was just 15. Now using the KayelaJ moniker, she’s been making appearances on outlets like KGW, giving interviews to KBOO community radio, playing shows at Holocene, and headlining the Thesis at Kelly’s Olympian—and that’s just in the last month.

    After her breakout PDX Pop Now! performance in 2012, Johnson says she started getting more attention from fans and the media, but at that time she simply wasn’t ready for alladat. “I was starting to get the emails of people wanting to interview me, and starting to get a little bit of buzz, but at the time I couldn’t handle it because I was going through so many growing pains in high school and just going through a lot with my family, and it all just kind of overwhelmed me,” she explains over coffee, wearing a T-shirt that says “Queer and Black Is Beautiful.”

    Now Johnson’s back to doing music full force, making waves for the first time in nearly five years. “I always say that 2016 was a life-changing moment for me. I started working out. My mental health was a lot better. I was figuring out my identity and came out to all my friends and family as a lesbian. And I just was a happier person, you know? I guess I felt like, ‘All right, now I kind of know myself and I know if I was to do music, I know exactly what kind of person I want to be and what kind of messages that I want to put out there.’”

    Inspired by local female DJ/rap duo Karma Rivera and DJ Lopez, Johnson teamed up with elementary school classmate DJ Bkaye, who learned DJing skills and is also her stylist. Their super-lit set at the Thesis proved they’re a dynamic duo with impressive crowd control.

    Johnson has already dropped three fire singles that’ll be on her forthcoming debut LP: the catchy and bouncy “Check x3,” “Heat Gentlemans Club,” produced by Sir Nai, and the C Los- and I’m Broke-produced “Kayela to the Muthafuckin J.” But first, she’s about to release a massive 25-track mixtape called Homage (Thank You) on September 28 that samples the women of color MCs who paved the way for her.

    “It does have 25 tracks, but they’re just verses. So I’m not making a full-length song,” she explains. “And it’s very nostalgic, ’cause it’s in chronological order. The basis of it is Roxanne Shanté, because I’m kinda saying, ‘Oh, Roxanne Shanté set off this reaction of all these dope strong female artists.’ So I start with ‘Roxanne’s Revenge’ and then I go into Queen Latifah, Salt-N-Pepa, and it kind of just spirals all the way down to the present day with Trina, Nicki Minaj, Cardi B.”

    Johnson was all set up to begin a grad school program (studying counseling psychology), but she says it’s not what she wants to do anymore. “I didn’t expect to get this much attention so soon for doing my music,” she says. “I thought it was going to be something like, ‘just go to class and do it on the side’ type thing.”

    Instead, she now wisely plans to pursue music full-time. Johnson raps in a style all her own and switches up her flow to rap about whatever she wants—including being gay, drowning in pussy, and being able to “hit it better than your hubby can.”

    “Before I knew myself, I couldn’t make the content I wanted to create,” Johnson says. “’Cause I was sitting here rapping about guys, about all this stuff that I wasn’t into but that I thought sounded cool, or sounded like it was hip-hop. And I just feel like all of that was just fake, it was just hindering me from what I’m doing now. It wasn’t authentic. I know my content, I know myself, I know what kind of music I want to make. I know who I’m speaking to and who my music is for.”

              EP Review: Loose, Haircut      Cache   Translate Page      
    Loose’s debut EP keeps things nice and tight. by Ben Salmon

    Loose is a trio of local scene veterans who know how to keep things nice and tight, as evidenced by their new EP Haircut. The band plays jittery, jangling punk rock, full of sharp corners and sneaky hooks that sound like typical lo-fi fare until later, when you find them lingering in your brain long after your ears have moved on to something else.

    That’s a testament to their knack for efficiency; at six tracks and just 10 minutes, Haircut is filled to the brim with a dense tangle of serrated guitar licks, tumbled rhythms, and no-frills vocal melodies. Loose’s sound makes sense, given its members’ most recent musical endeavors: Nick Everett (drums) played in catchy emo-punk outfit Blowout, Teal Bluestone (bass) fronted ambitious indie rock band Naked Hour, and Jeremy Murphy (guitar) made fuzzy math-pop with Riled. Thanks to shifting time signatures and Murphy’s lead vocals, Loose most closely resembles Riled, but with a bonus dose of sparkling charm.

    Opening track “Bruce” veers between punk urgency and pretty contemplation, packing it all (plus a Springsteen reference) into 66 seconds. “Sports” runs more than twice as long, closing the EP with a restless guitar riff and a minute-long coda that’s unexpectedly slow and strangely affecting. The peak in between is “Heatstroke,” an ode to the importance of hydration that finds Loose sitting still long enough to sound almost like a straightforward rock band, somewhere near the midpoint between Modest Mouse’s agitations and the Strokes’ cool vibrations.

    Elsewhere, “Subaru” chugs along proggily, lamenting the prevalence of its titular vehicle in Portland along the way. “Smile” feels like a post-punk take on twang, and Loose’s latent Pavement-isms surface in “Nevermind,” where Murphy sings, “Son, you know one day all your idols will die/Let me introduce you to a bad vibe” as drums pound and guitars jangle gloriously in the background.

    The three-piece formed last summer in the back of a friend’s tour van, then coalesced when their previous projects fizzled out. A year later, Haircut establishes Loose as yet another Portland rock band worth watching.

              Angel Olsen Contemplates Murder, “Sad Girl Shit,” and Pop Music      Cache   Translate Page      
    The singer/songwriter contemplates murder, “sad girl shit,” and pop music. by John Coyle

    “If you don’t like the way it’s mixed, just don’t talk to me about it. Because I will murder you. I will—I’ll murder you in your sleep.”

    It’s early afternoon in mid-August, and Angel Olsen is wandering through her home in the picturesque artist’s hamlet of Asheville, North Carolina. The St. Louis native sounds relaxed and incapable of killing anyone as she breezily recounts childhood piano lessons, her parents’ love for country crooner Roger Miller, and memories of punk shows at her hometown’s dearly departed DIY venue, the Creepy Crawl. “My mom would give me a flip phone to call her, so she could pick me and my friends up. If you drove down there, your car would get broken into,” she laughs.

    Olsen’s murder threat was actually delivered to her band, during the frantic final push to finish 2016’s My Woman. The record underwent multiple mixes, and she was often delivering feedback—“Stuart’s guitar needs to be on the right! Seth’s guitar needs to be on the left!”—over the phone while she was out on the road. It was a grueling process, and while the 31-year-old singer/songwriter wanted to hear everyone’s perspective, she was the one running in front of the train saying, “They’re not Angel Olsen, they don’t have to have final say.”

    At that point, being Angel Olsen was stressful enough that she was barely eating or sleeping—but her agonizing was undoubtedly worth it. Because in a year packed with high-profile releases from heavyweights like Radiohead, Beyoncé, and David Bowie, Olsen’s third studio effort landed on every year-end list that mattered.

    My Woman departs dramatically from Olsen’s previous releases, like 2011’s Strange Cacti EP and 2014’s Burn Your Fire for No Witness, which wholly embrace the austere aural aesthetic of—as she describes it—“the sad girl shit.” Curiously, there was no grand plan to make a seismic shift for the sessions. “I think I just needed a break,” she explains, and says that the bigger sound of My Woman grew from wanting to capture the energy of the band’s informal jams.

    Listening to it now, there’s nothing she’d change—almost. “Though my voice, and drums and guitars sound really big on tape, when you’re playing quietly, sometimes you just hear the tape,” she reflects. “Sometimes that doesn’t bother people, but I don’t know... it’d be nice to not hear it, and it kind of bugs me a little bit.” While she poured everything she had into My Woman, two years after its release, she still sounds surprised about the record’s rapturous reception.

    “People said, ‘So you created a pop record,’ and I was like, ‘Did I?,’” she laughs, pointing out that two tracks are more than seven minutes long. For a brief second, she toys with exploring the whole concept of pop, before admitting, “When something’s popular and people like it, I guess that makes it a pop record. I don’t know what people are listening to.”

    Pop or not, there’s nothing sparse about the arrangements on My Woman. Even the quiet moments feel rich and robust, and every element is polished to a high luster. On “Intern,” the opening track, her vocals are delivered against a backdrop of soothing synth tones, while “Not Gonna Kill You” is propelled toward its climax by impassioned interplay between acoustic and electric guitar. The soaring, cinematic “Shut Up Kiss Me” sparkles as brilliantly as the chrome wig she sports in the accompanying music video and climbs toward an emotional peak you’d have to be inanimate to resist.

    Along with all the critical praise, and hearing it described as “pop,” Olsen was also struck by another aspect of her album’s reception: “When My Woman came out, everyone wanted to attach some sort of feminist meaning to it, or they wanted to talk about women in society, or all the stuff coming out politically, and I was like, ‘Whoa—that’s not what my record is about.’” Though she initially bristled at the idea of people putting words in her mouth, it doesn’t bother her now. “I just got to the point where instead of getting upset that people misunderstood my intentions, I was just like, ‘People are always going to do that, I can’t control that. Whatever you want to take from this is fine.’”

    On a similar note, she’s hesitant to buy into the common trope that bad times make for great art. “As far as writing, I haven’t written anything that’s political-based, or directly political,” she says. But like a lot of people, she’s also inclined to see the positive energy and passion inspired when it feels like the country, and the world, is spinning out of control. “I think the fact that we have a shitty situation right now makes everyone—even if it’s just the hip thing to do—more active than they’ve ever been, and artists are less afraid to take action and be political, which is really cool.”

    As she prepares to hit the road for her “Tiny Dreams” solo tour—she sweetly pegs the start to her mom’s birthday—Olsen isn’t interested in discussing the music she’s currently working on. (After the change-up between Burn Your Fire... and My Woman, she’s likely bored of fielding questions about her next act.) But she does mention that playing older material, like the plaintive songs from Strange Cacti and 2017’s Phases, a collection of B-sides, demos, and rarities, makes her want to revisit similar territory.

    “I kind of miss recording in this really shitty context. I really want to do that again,” she says. “I made my name on the sad girl shit. The sad girl shit is not going away. The next record will probably be sad.”

    Happy, sad, or anywhere in between, Angel Olsen is a fierce talent—and there’s no indication she’s even approached the height of her powers. This is the first solo stretch she’s done since 2014, and it’s being billed as a comprehensive look at where she’s been and where she’s going. Audiences should brace for a stellar show.

              The 23 Best Concerts to See in Portland: September 13-26      Cache   Translate Page      
    From Hand Habits to Kneebody to Toe. by The Mercury Music Experts Dream Team™

    Angel Olsen
    Angel Olsen’s voice is like a flash flood—it’s easy to get swept up in the emotion behind her whispered devotions and existentially aching sighs. Nobody else can do what she does (the only worthy comparison is probably the late Patsy Cline). See Olsen perform songs from Phases, the collection of B-sides and rarities she released last year, at her second Portland show of the Tiny Dreams Solo Tour. (Thurs Sept 13, 8 pm, Newmark Theatre, 1111 SW Broadway, $31-41; w/Hand Habits) CIARA DOLAN

    No Kind of Rider, Sama Dams, Slow Corpse
    Savage Coast, the debut album from No Kind of Rider, has been a long time coming. The band has been playing around Portland for the better part of a decade, slowly perfecting a sound that connects vintage shoegaze pop, sultry indie rock, and lush electronica. The theme of Savage Coast seems to be finding ways of letting go, not just of a bad relationship or the spirit of a beloved family member, but of an entire way of being. This is the music of reinvention and refocusing, a soundtrack to setting one’s hopeful eyes on the horizon. (Thurs Sept 13, Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison) ROBERT HAM

    Greta Van Fleet, Dorothy
    The much-ballyhooed “death” of rock has led to an unusual side effect: As shaggy dudes playing loud guitars recede from the spotlight, the few remaining rock acts have grown even more precious to the diehards. This explains the rapid rise of Greta Van Fleet, a Michigan quartet of three brothers and one friend who are selling out large halls before they’ve even released a full-length album (and before two of the members have reached legal drinking age). A listen to either of GVF’s startlingly competent EPs, Black Smoke Rising and From the Fires, reveals why: These kids are hidebound devotees to the Orthodox Church of Led Zeppelin, replicating that band’s swing, swagger, and screeching vocals with an almost astonishing amount of confidence. They’ve gained acclaim for a powerful live show, and with their much anticipated debut album due in October, Greta Van Fleet are poised to become absolutely massive. When they do, enjoy their riffs, which really are good—but just be ready to ignore the countless think-pieces that say, “Rock is back!” (Fri Sept 14, Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, 1037 SW Broadway) NED LANNAMANN

    Kali Uchis, Gabriel Garzón-Montano
    Kali Uchis is teetering on the brink of pop super stardom. The Colombian American singer/songwriter has toured with Lana del Rey and cultivated a following of loyal stans ever since releasing her 2015 Por Vida EP. In April, Uchis dropped her debut LP Isolation, and it’s pretty much perfect—she jumps easily from R&B to garage rock to reggaetón, with features from artists like Bootsy Collins, Reykon, and Tyler, the Creator. Uchis’ music videos, which have millions of YouTube views, typically involve a lot of bubblegum-pink (her pink hairdo, a pink sunset) and driving down lonely roads in retro roadsters. (Fri Sept 14, Roseland, 8 NW 6th) ISABEL LYNDON

    Murder by Death, William Elliott Whitmore
    Murder by Death and William Elliott Whitmore have come full circle. Back in 2000, Whitmore performed for the first time with a brand-new band, Little Joe Gould, led by the young vocalist/guitarist Adam Turla and cellist Sarah Balliet, in a basement in Bloomington, Indiana. Little Joe Gould would eventually change their name to Murder by Death, and the two musicians embarked on multiple tours together. They found themselves once again sharing the road, and now a label, as both artists released albums this year on the venerable Bloodshot Records. MBD’s eighth LP, The Other Shore, finds them writhing in their literary gothic-folk, this time under the guise of a space-western epic taking place on a post-apocalyptic planet. Meanwhile, Whitmore’s seventh record, Kilonova, rides the singer/songwriter’s far-reaching baritone vocals and swampy Americana into new and exciting realms. (Sat Sept 15, Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell) RYAN J. PRADO

    Blood Orange
    Though Dev Hynes has written and produced hits for the likes of Solange, Florence and the Machine, Kylie Minogue, and Carly Rae Jepsen, his solo work as Blood Orange has never been all that concerned with chart-topping singles. Over seven years and three albums, Hynes used the Blood Orange moniker to delve into deeper, more delicate, and more personal material. His new record Negro Swan explores themes like the ongoing anxieties of queer and trans folks and people of color, surviving childhood trauma, and what he defines as “Black depression.” Negro Swan is a meditative journey through Hynes’ most intimate thoughts, sung over minimalist drum beats, mellow guitar riffs, and spaced-out keys. It’s less an album of independent and disjointed singles—as so many hip-hop and R&B albums are today—as it is one continuous and slowly unspooling narrative. Lacking such straightforward bops as Freetown Sound’s “Best to You” or Cupid Deluxe’s “You’re Not Good Enough,” Negro Swan requires more patience than previous Blood Orange albums, and perhaps more than a couple of front-to-back listens. Its progressive R&B and lush bedroom pop is more ruminative than Hynes’ previous efforts, but the result is beautiful, haunting, and brutally honest. With guest appearances by Tei Shi, A$AP Rocky, Project Pat, and Diddy (who lets himself be surprisingly candid), the most important and frequent guest is transgender activist Janet Mock, whose spoken interludes are heard throughout the album, propelling the narrative forward to a triumphant coda. (Sun Sept 16, Roseland, 8 NW 6th, $29.50-39.50) SANTI ELIJAH HOLLEY

    The Zombies, Liz Brasher
    Sorry, youngbloods: The Zombies are responsible for some of the best live shows I’ve ever seen. The aging group, which formed in the 1960s and was responsible for some of the greatest pop songs of that decade (“She’s Not There,” “This Will Be Our Year”), reunited around vocalist Colin Blunstone and keyboardist/songwriter/vocalist Rod Argent, and this new edition of the Zombies has been an ongoing concern for more than a decade now. In 2015, they played the entirety of their perfect 1968 album Odessey and Oracle at Revolution Hall, and it was mind-blowingly great, bringing tears and delight to the entire auditorium; Blunstone’s gorgeously smoky voice hadn’t aged a day. Expect some of that same magic tonight—although sadly, this time they’ll be without veteran bassist Jim Rodford (the Kinks, Argent), who passed away earlier this year. (Mon Sept 17, Revolution Hall, 1300 SE Stark) NED LANNAMANN

    Hatchie, Wildhoney
    Sugar & Spice, the flawless debut EP from dream-pop purveyor Hatchie—AKA Brisbane, Australia’s Harriette Pilbeam—is a gorgeous, gossamer thing, filled with weightless stardust melodies and cozy-blanket hooks that make each track utterly irresistible. This is Hatchie’s first-ever Portland show, so get ready to be infatuated. (Wed Sept 19, 9 pm, Doug Fir, 830 E Burnside, $13-15; w/Wildhoney) NED LANNAMANN

    Liz Phair, Speedy Ortiz
    Exile in Guyville’s 25th anniversary has given the world a good excuse to revisit Liz Phair’s early streak of wicked genius, but this year also marks the 20th anniversary of Whitechocolatespaceegg, an essential record that splits the difference between Phair’s ’90s intensity and ’00s sheen. Nothing in the collected musical works of humankind is quite as lethal as “Fuck and Run” or “Flower” on Phair’s third LP. What Whitechocolatespaceegg does have is Phair’s greatest pop triumph (“Polyester Bride”) as well as a handful of songs (“Go on Ahead,” “Girls’ Room,” “Perfect World”) that recapture the magic of Guyville’s standout tracks. Let’s hope they get some love tonight. (Wed Sept 19, Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside) CHRIS STAMM

    Toe
    Japanese band Toe is all about interlocking precision, and while their music doesn’t quite fall in the category of math rock, that’s probably the closest descriptor for their rigid but never robotic jams. Toe’s newest album, That’s Another Story, collects various odds and ends from over the years with an emphasis on remixes, revealing something pretty fascinating in the process. By stripping the band’s exacting musical interplay down to its fundamental sounds and building it back up again, these remixes have found common ground between loop-based electronic music and the hypnotic repetition of Toe’s propulsive sound. (Wed Sept 19, Wonder Ballroom, 128 NE Russell) NED LANNAMANN

    Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears, Paul Cherry
    On their last record, 2017’s Backlash, Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears’ soulful, infectious blues met riff-heavy funk, with the focus shifting from Lewis’ noted fretwork to peppy brass and a steady rhythmic pocket, as heard on the excellent “Global.” As evidenced by their status as veterans of pretty much every major American music festival, the band is known for engaging performances that orbit around Lewis’ unhinged vocal delivery that sounds inspired by the likes of Howlin’ Wolf and James Brown. It’s the kind of guitar hero-centric act that’s not unlike the unifying allure of Jimi Hendrix or Lenny Kravitz (if that’s your thing). Their sixth studio LP, The Difference Between You and Me, is due out this month. (Thurs Sept 20, Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi) RYAN J. PRADO

    John Prine, Todd Snider
    The Tree of Forgiveness is John Prine’s first collection of new material in over a decade, and it contains some of the legendary folksinger/songwriter’s most playful tunes to date. At 71, Prine doesn’t spend too much time mulling over the end of life and the great beyond, but when he does, it’s with a twinkle in his eye: On the excellent closing track “When I Get to Heaven,” he sings of being reunited with family and smoking “a cigarette that’s nine miles long” amid a chorus of kazoos, saloon piano, and hooting backup singers. The Tree of Forgiveness is sweet, silly, and a little sad, meaning it’s the perfect kind of John Prine record. (Fri Sept 21, Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, 1037 SW Broadway) CIARA DOLAN

    The Avett Brothers
    Back in July, the Avett Brothers postponed the third of three consecutive shows they were scheduled to play at the Edgefield after a man claiming to be an out-of-state police officer entered the venue with a gun and disappeared into the crowd. Though unnerving, nothing came of the incident, and the beloved North Carolinian folk rockers made good on their promise to reschedule the cancelled concert—tonight they’ll perform to a sold-out Edgefield audience to close out the final day of summer. (Fri Sept 21, Edgefield, 2126 SW Halsey, Troutdale) CIARA DOLAN

    Slothrust, Summer Cannibals
    Slothrust’s extraordinary new LP, The Pact, is a wild beast of a record, alive with sadness, fear, defiance, and joy. The album plays like a tour of night’s most tender zones, those places that hum with thoughts that don’t belong in the light. On “The Haunting,” the album’s centerpiece and one of 2018’s best songs, singer/guitarist Leah Wellbaum paints a picture of existential uncertainty that could double as a band motto: “Not sure if I am asleep or awake, so I’ll treat this body like I think that it’s a fake and see how much it can take.” We’ve all been to that terrible in-between—Slothrust has just figured out how to thrive there. (Fri Sept 21, Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi) CHRIS STAMM

    The Mattson 2, Astronauts Etc.
    If, as a band, you decide to cover John Coltrane’s landmark 1965 jazz album A Love Supreme, you’re either daringly confident in your ability to bring something new or interesting to one of the greatest pieces of music ever composed, or you just love being in way over your head. Most fall into the latter category, but the Mattson 2 qualify as the former. On The Mattson 2 Play “A Love Supreme,” the SoCal jazz duo—percussionist Jonathan Mattson and guitarist Jared Mattson, who are identical twins—rework Coltrane’s masterpiece with verve and virtuosity, giving familiar tunes an update that’s electrifying, psychedelic, refreshingly modern, and respectful at the same time. Sharing tonight’s bill (and backed by the Mattsons) is singer/songwriter Astronauts, Etc., AKA Anthony Ferraro, a classically trained pianist whose new album Living in Symbol is a deliciously unhurried set of soulful dream-pop jams. (Sat Sept 22, Jack London Revue, 529 SW 4th) BEN SALMON

    Johnny Marr, Belle Game
    It’s a shame that Johnny Marr sometimes gets overshadowed by the headline-grabbing nonsense that pours from Morrissey’s mouth these days. Over the past five years, the former Smiths guitarist has released a string of striking pop records that recall the shimmer of his former band’s best album, 1987’s Strangeways, Here We Come. Marr’s new LP Call the Comet is no different, with jangly hooks for days and lyrics that address the caustic political climate we’re currently experiencing by painting a kinder, more empathetic world. Marr has played sideman to artists like Neil Finn, The The, Brian Eno, Billy Bragg, and Modest Mouse. Think about that: The writer of some of the greatest pop songs of all time took a backseat for years before releasing his first solo record. That says as much about Marr as the fact that such incredible musicians sought him out. (Sat Sept 22, Roseland, 8 NW 6th) MARK LORE

    STRFKR
    STRFKR: It’s short for Starfucker. At one time, the name gave Josh Hodges & Co. a little trouble. They changed it up, but in the end they always returned to their Starfucker source. Touring to celebrate the 10-year-anniversary of their first release, the self-titled album Starfucker, STRFKR wants nothing more than to play their dancey idiosyncratic pop-synth songs as many times as we’ll let them. I’ve got nothing but love for this crew. (Sat Sept 22, 9 pm, Sun Sept 23, 4:30 & 9 pm; Doug Fir, 830 NE Burnside, $25.50-30, Sun 4:30 pm show all-ages) SUZETTE SMITH

    Big John Bates: Noirchestra, Stoned Evergreen Travelers
    With their new LP Psychedelic Bloodbath, Seattle band Stoned Evergreen Travelers present something wholly unclassifiable. Stand-up bass and fiddle give the album the swagger and bounce of a drunken cowboy—it’s dirty, confident, unpredictable, and potentially dangerous. At times it sounds like stripped-down Americana or rockabilly, but the gruff vocals and crunchy guitar licks add an unexpected edge. The fiddle, present on every track, sounds like it should be coming from the middle of a circle of covered wagons, but it slithers and drips with enough reverb to be completely spooky. Stoned Evergreen Travelers are like everything and nothing you’ve ever heard before. (Sun Sept 23, Dante’s, 350 W Burnside) ARIS HUNTER WALES

    Jonathan Wilson, William Tyler
    Don’t make the mistake of relegating Jonathan Wilson to the position of second banana: Despite playing in the backing band for Roger Waters—and singing the David Gilmour parts—and serving as producer for Father John Misty, Conor Oberst, and others, Wilson’s solo work is a bounty of far-out delights. All three of his albums for Bella Union are epic double-disc affairs, and explore the far-ranging facets of psychedelic music. The newest, Rare Birds, turns away from the laidback caterpillar smoke-ring sounds of its predecessors in favor of a more yacht-pop vibe with new-age oriented material (to give you an idea, the guest credits include Lana Del Rey and Laraaji). Live, Wilson is in command of truly transporting sound; expect a crack band of seasoned vets and lengthy jam sections. (Mon Sept 24, Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi) NED LANNAMANN

    Miguel, DVSN
    Soul singer Miguel’s 2017 album War & Leisure is inspired by psychedelia and luminaries like Prince, Marvin Gaye, and Lenny Kravitz with lots of heavy-reverb guitar and his powerful, soul-drenched vocals. Miguel already showcased the album earlier this year, kicking off a tour leg in Portland back in February. In June, the singer announced this 26-date leg, “The Ascension” North American tour with Canadian R&B duo DVSN. This time, fans can shriek over renditions of “The Thrill,” “Pineapple Skies,” and “Pussy Is Mine,” in the glowy, comfy confines of the Schnitz. (Tues Sept 25, 8 pm, Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, 1037 SW Broadway, $47-97, all ages; w/DVSN) JENNI MOORE

    DakhaBrakha
    With their matching red-and-black outfits and tall wool hats, DakhaBrakha hypnotized the crowds at Pickathon last month with bewitching sets centered around the chants of Olena Tsybulska, Iryna Kovalenko, and Nina Harenetska. Though they’ve got roots in Ukranian folk, DakhaBrakha draws from a hodge-podge of styles that’s anchored by warbling melodies and percussive elements like goblet drum and table, along with the dissonant sounds of didgeridoo and cajón. The group’s avant-garde aesthetic and self-described “ethno-chaos” sound have attracted curious audiences the world over, and this stop at the Aladdin Theater is sure to be a spectacle of otherworldly proportions. (Tues Sept 25, Aladdin Theater, 3017 SE Milwaukie) RYAN J. PRADO

    Kneebody, Donny McCaslin
    Saxophonist Donny McCaslin has been riding a wave of welcome attention after his well-honed ensemble was chosen to be the backing band for David Bowie’s final album Blackstar. But the acclaim hasn’t gone to his head, as evidenced by his last Portland appearance, when he and his band soared through a two-hour set of modern jazz punctuated by Mark Linder’s keyboard filigrees and an intuitive rhythm section. Their work will be a fine complement to Kneebody, a fluid ensemble that faces forward as jazz, but is nimble enough to work with the colors of electronica, contemporary classical, and funk. (Tues Sept 25, Star Theater, 13 NW 6th) ROBERT HAM

    Natalie Prass, Stella Donnelly
    Natalie Prass had a sophomore album written and ready to record. It was an important one, too—a follow-up to her 2015 self-titled debut, a collection of lush and personal songs that earned her rave reviews and prominent placements on several lists of that year’s best albums. But then the 2016 presidential election happened, which threw her for a loop. Prass scrapped that sophomore effort and started working on a new one, and the result is The Future and the Past, a confidently funky record that echoes ’70s-era Diana Ross and ’80s-era Janet Jackson and courses with politically charged energy. Prass wastes no time getting into it, either: “What is truth and what is fear? What is lying to a cheat?” she sings on “Oh My,” the album’s snappy opening track. “And what is freedom for the free?” Maybe someday we’ll hear that album Prass scrapped, but for now, The Future and the Past sounds like the one she needed to make... and the one we needed to hear.

              Three Not-at-All Made-Up Cannabis Product Reviews      Cache   Translate Page      
    Hey, sometimes we have to go negative. by Josh Jardine

    Having this platform to share canna-centric news, viewpoints, and historical insight is a great privilege. It also means that I’m sometimes besieged with new products for review, and while that’s usually fantastic, it can sometimes... not be.

    The thing that seemed so awesome to a team that’s developed a fancy new product can get lost on the way to market—but pointing this out can sometimes feels like punching down, especially in an industry with so many young, struggling businesses. So unless it’s prohibitionist claptrap or a total rip-off, I have a policy to generally not run negative reviews, especially since they sometimes start a feedback loop of angry comments.

    But I care about you, so this week I’m going to throw hands and violate my policy of “don’t start none, won’t be none.” All of these products are 100 percent real and definitely not made up, for realsies, pinky swear, stick a needle in your mother’s back, etc. Just don’t look for them on shelves. They’re, um, all sold out.


    Super Mega Monster Vape 500 XXXL Pro Edition

    The variety of vaporizer options may seem limitless, but the makers of the SMMV500 promise that once you’ve tried it, “Anything else is like vaping rotting seal meat through a straw made of burning sewage sludge.”

    The unit is hefty at nearly four feet high and 18 inches across, weighing in at an unwieldy 114 pounds, necessitating two-handed use at all times. A standard mouthpiece has been replaced with a neon green, pot leaf-adorned CPAP mask that makes the user sound like Bane.

    Heat settings can be laboriously and slowly programmed to individual temperatures in .00001-degree increments, ranging from 120 to 1,200 degrees Fahrenheit, for hits that the press release claims “offer mad terps, and burst blood vessels in your eyeballs from the blackout-inducing hacking fits.” Each hit is accompanied by a five-second blast of airhorn.

    It’s powered by dual car batteries, and affixed with eight wheels of questionable quality—three of mine broke off during testing, leaving me to drag the SMMV500 down the sidewalk, resulting in a shower of sparks that injured numerous passersby. The tank has a capacity of 13 gallons, which seems excessive, but hey, you never know.


    SUPER Cheap Dabs

    A year ago, you could pay $60 or more for a gram of top-shelf extracts. Oregon’s current cannabis oversupply has resulted in free-falling prices. But the makers of Overly Leveraged Industries have lowered the bar to subterranean, with one-gram butane hash oil (BHO) dabs that are readily available at a frankly baffling five cents each, or 25 for a dollar.

    I asked OLI owner Lee Banfield how he was able to offer what is certainly the most inexpensive dab anywhere on the planet. “We just do, okay? Maybe don’t worry about it,” he responded. He mumbled something about “um, vintage trim,” which was later found to be questionable material from a medical grow in 2006. “Weed is weed, brah,” Banfield explained.

    The dabs are Vantablack in color, and seem to throw off disturbing sizzling noises before they’ve even been lit. When the dab is burned, it emits a high-pitched screeching, which several users describe in online reviews as “oh god, these tortured souls want to drag me with them to the underworld.” Lab test results were printed in Cyrillic; when translated, they appeared to be a recipe for pickled herring pie. When asked, Banfield replied, “You really seem really hung up on this whole ‘test’ thing—I wonder what that’s about,” and insisted his products contain “all the best cannibal droids in the world, for sure, I bet, probably. Now leave.”


    Celebrity Weed

    Bandwagon Gardens, a division of Starfucker Farms, admit they may not have made the best choices with their line of celebrity branded pre-rolls.

    “Releasing individual lines for all 28 contestants from season three of The Bachelor may have been a misstep,” a spokesperson sighed.

    “Was our follow-up strain of ‘Quackers Kush,’ endorsed by Jeanne Bice from QVC’s Quacker Factory, a better choice? Certainly not,” the spokesperson continued, lighting a cigarette. “And people haven’t really seemed to connect with our line of Diff’rent Strokes products—our marketing research team discovered that the average consumer finds them ‘depressing’ and ‘inappropriate’ and ‘Jesus, what were you people thinking?’ But the biggest mistake was the timing of our signing Roseanne Barr and Papa John, for sure.”

    When asked about the company’s overall strategy, the spokesperson took a hopelessly deep pull of whiskey and said, “Look, the weed is attached, I guess, to someone you’ve seen on, like, TV, or something. That’s a thing, right? People want stuff that famous people put their name on. I mean, just look at the White House—isn’t that how we got into this whole mess?”

              The NYT Uses Architecture to Explain Why Portlanders Hate Portland      Cache   Translate Page      
    by Alex Zielinski

    GettyImages-173230232.jpg
    RyanJLane / Getty Images

    Okay, so the New York Times wrote about Portland again. In the past, the Grey Lady has mostly written about Portland as a twee traveler's destination or a place for alt-right protests (they're not wrong about either of these). But this time, the Times used the innocuous lens of architecture to illustrate the exact reasons a lot of longtime Portlanders are... tired. Not pissed off, not hateful, just straight up exhausted with how a fist of cash and LA boredom continues to chip away at Portland's history and identity.

    Meet Arrow and Jessica Kruse, a video producer and fashion designer/Hollywood heir who moved to Portland after living in Los Angeles and New York City. They came to Portland with their kids named Alder and Odin in 2015 and bought a house. Although reporter Brian Libby (a local architect journalist) says there's "nothing conventional" about the couple, their story easily fits the stereotype of the wealthy Californians who seek a meaningful life—fueled by trust funds, tech jobs, and cheaper-than-SF mortgages—in Portland. I almost feel bad about the barrage of Portland fury that's about to crash down on Arrow and Jessica, who probably assumed they were just being interviewed about their weird house.

    But, the weird house is really the root of this painful metaphor. The Times article describes, with delight, how the Kruses bought a 1907 Craftsman-style house on Lincoln St.for $965,000. Then, they paid a local architecture firm $550,000 to stick a bunch of cube-shaped rooms in the middle of it. It looks like it's a Transformer tragically stuck in the middle of transforming into a giant Rubik's Cube. As of now, the main comments on the Times story are architect fans who say the Kruses "butchered" the historic house and created a "modernist nightmare," one that will rudely cause neighboring property taxes to spike.

    For some reason, I'm still more insulted by the Kruses' origin story. The Kruses decided to jet out to Portland because they were worried how their environment was effecting them. The Kruses say they were tired of sitting in traffic for too many hours and having friends with houses "so big the owners used a Segway scooter to get around indoors." Relatable!

    They seemed to haul a good amount of that shit with them to Portland, though. Libby writes the Kruses have at least three vintage cars parked outside their home, including—I kid you not—a black Cadillac limo from the 80s. WHAT. And I'm sure you could use a Segway—or, at least, an electric scooter—to get around the massive house.

    But it's the Kruses' apparent obliviousness to how crashing into Southeast Portland with their big window chunks and mid-century modern furniture and armada of retro gas-guzzlers will impact their new city that completes the picture. New Portland, meet your new poster children.

              Fresh Drops from Wynne, Mic Capes and Umii      Cache   Translate Page      
    by Jenni Moore

    Wynne1_Phillip_Quinn.JPG
    Phillip Quinn

    Wynne, “Buzzer”
    Oh man. Oh woman! Oregon-raised MC Wynne dropped a stunner today with a new basketball-themed song and music video, “Buzzer.” In addition to having a cameo from Dame Lillard (!), the bouncy, two-minute video sees Wynne rolling around in a black car with her crew, spitting bars while hanging out the passenger side window, and quick snippets of her making bedroom eyes to the camera. And ya’ll, it’s two minutes of straight bars. Lots of Portland references and clever punchlines abound. Perhaps my favorite part (aside from her being flanked by Dame Lillard) is when Wynne slows it down so she can put Trump supporters in their place. “We got love for everybody but some of ya’ll crazy if I’m being honest/Cause you voted, now it’s 2018, and that man is still in the office? Jeez!”


    Mic Capes, “Mansa Musa”
    Speaking of bouncy singles, another one came from North Portland rapper Mic Capes in late August. I first heard “Mansa Musa” when Capes performed it at Portland Hip-Hop Day, and I instantly recognized it is as a bop. The catchy song is about Black excellence, Black love and generational wealth. The chorus repeats “I just wanna ball like Mansa Musa, swish/Make a million and get rich,” while the verses are centered more on his personal climb. On social media Capes explained that he wrote the track to draw more attention to the historical figure Mansa Musa, who was a sultan of the wealthy Western African Mali Empire in the 14th century, and is said to be the richest person in history. Go off, Black king!


    Umii, “Don’t Let Up,” feat. The Last Artful, Dodgr
    Last year Umii—comprised of Reva DeVito and producer B. Bravo—dropped their aqueous and soul-infused album This Time. On Monday the duo released a music video for their “Don’t Let Up,” remix featuring the distinct voice of Portland rapper/singer The Last Artful, Dodgr. Set in a plant-filled apartment oasis, Dodgr pulls off a joint and delivers titillating verse that sounds like it belonged on the dreamy, sensual track with DeVito the entire time. The video also features dancers Allison Jax and Treneti Brown, whose playful choreography simulates an interracial lesbian romance. Tomorrow Umii’s releasing This Time (Remixed) and it’s pretty much guaranteed to be packed with gems.

              Four Tips for Feasting at Feast      Cache   Translate Page      
    by Chad Walsh

    Feasts Night Market 2017
    Feast's Night Market 2017 PHOTOS BY ALAN WEINER FOR FEAST

    On Monday, Eater published a comprehensive compendium of all the Feast events that have yet to sell out. Today, we’re narrowing that list down to the top four events you should go to if you have the time, money, and motivation, with tips on how to navigate each one. (It was gonna be the top five events, but Brunch Village sold out of tickets while this listicle was being written. IOW: Act fast.)

    ‘80s vs. ‘90s
    When: 6 pm, Thursday, September 13.
    What: This is an inaugural event. All we know is that it pits delicacies of the 1980s versus those of the 1990s. So expect E-Z Cheese? Either way, it kicks off the festival and it’s certain to have some cool show-stopping ideas.
    Cost: $125
    How to Do It: Participating kitchens often dress thematically, as do guests, so have at it. But as someone who’s spent his formative years in both decades, beware of those high-wasted acid-washed jeans, kids. They’re not—and never were—cool. Mine even had hip-level Hammer flair and a built-in denim belt. My therapist says it’s not my fault, but it was. Don’t make the same mistakes I did. Burn those jeans.

    Grand Tasting
    When: 1 pm, Friday, September 14
    What: Held at Pioneer Square, the Grand Tasting is your best bet to get up close and personal with local and national artisans, so it’s an excellent way to explore what could be the next big thing.
    Cost: $75
    How to Do It: There’s gonna be a lot to sample, but don’t feel pressured to sample all of it. Trust. The very idea of Feast is indulgence, but your body can process only so much cheese before it turns you into a mindless somnambulant. Oh, but DO sample the collabo-beers from KEX.

    Basically Bar Trivia
    When: 4 pm, Friday, September 14
    What: It’s trivia, but with celebuchefs. What could be less snobby/more snobby that showing everyone how smart you are?
    Cost: $35
    How to Do It: It’s the least spendy event on the remaining schedule. And you’ll be fed snacks while you compete. You don’t even need a date, as teams will be assigned randomly. In fact, you might very well leave with a date if you play your cards right.

    Big Feast in Little China
    When: 6 pm, Friday, September 14
    What: A whole lot of locals and nationals are gathering to showcase their own personal spin on the literally countless versions of Chinese cuisine, including Brandon Jew (San Francisco’s Mister Jiu’s) and our very own Kyo Koo (Danwei Canting) and Jasper Shen (XLB).
    Cost: $135
    How to Do It: For this event, disregard the aforementioned previous tone of culinary caution. If you see a dumpling, eat it. This one's gonna be good.

              Televangelist Warlock Pat Robertson Casts Spell on Hurricane Florence      Cache   Translate Page      
    by Wm. Steven Humphrey

    Pat Robertson: Bubble, bubble! Toil and trouble!
    Pat Robertson: "Bubble, bubble! Toil and trouble!" Courtesy YouTube

    As you know, the Southeastern United States is bracing itself for Hurricane Florence, a category 4 storm that could cause "catastrophic" damage once it reaches landfall this Friday. Millions of residents have been ordered to move inland, and Imbecile-in-Chief Donald Trump is keeping himself busy by arguing with Puerto Rican officials about how he didn't botch their hurricane disaster, like, at all.

    But if you're concerned about the life-threatening conditions those in the South are facing... don't be! Because televangelist warlock Pat Robertson has cast a spell on the hurricane, which has forbidden it from touching America! (Note: Normally in times of national crisis, self-proclaimed Christians such as Robertson pray for something good to happen and then go on about their business. However, this must be a pretty serious situation, because Robertson has apparently shunned his religion's historical hatred of the dark arts and has turned to witchcraft in order to stop the hurricane, casting a "shield of protection" over his home state of Virginia.) Let's watch! Stone-cold witchery starts at 1:10.

    “In Jesus’ holy name, be out to sea!” Well. That should take care of it.

    Hat tips to Right Wing Watch.

              TBA: Legendary Isn't Shown the Love it Deserves      Cache   Translate Page      
    by Santi Elijah Holley

    It wouldn’t be TBA without late-night dance parties. After spending hours taking in such tragicomic shows as Kaneza Schaal’s JACK &, or the hyper-intimate modern dance performance of Milka Djordjevich’s ANTHEM, it can be restorative to step out onto the dance floor and shake off any built-up tension, pressed against other sweaty bodies. By all means, Legendary should’ve been a packed house, but by having the unfortunate time slot of 10pm on Sunday night, it didn’t bring in the heat normally found at Legendary parties.

    tba_legendary_1.jpg
    Santi Elijah Holley

    Curated by Portland-based artist, lecturer, and radical queer theologian bart fitzgerald, Legendary is a long-running, fashion-forward dance party for LGBTQ people of color in Portland, celebrating black and brown sexual expression. With a crew of four all-black DJs, Deena Bee started off the night spinning hits from Cardi B, Anderson.Paak, Beyonce, Camila Cabello, and others, while the film New Jack City screened overhead. (“The blackest film ever,” fitzgerald commented.) BNICK followed, with deeper cuts by French Montana, Travis Porter, and Fabolous, while Issa Rae’s Insecure played on the screen above.

    After midnight, Valan Primus took over the decks with throwbacks like Crystal Waters’s “100% Pure Love,” “Show Me Love” by Robin S, and (continuing the “love” theme) Haddaway’s “What is Love.” There were never more than 20-30 people on the dance floor at a time and—for a party celebrating black and brown queer bodies—there were a conspicuously high number of white folks. When headlining, DJ Dubblife closed out the night with tracks by Yung Gravy, Playboi Carti, and Krippy Kush. Most people had already closed their bar tabs and begun to head home to get ready for their workweek.

    Typically held in smaller and more intimate venues, the PICA warehouse was also a much larger space than other Legendary parties, further lending the night a feeling of wasted potential, and a sense of what could’ve been, had fitzgerald been given a more suitable night.


    We'll be blogging about TBA 2018 every day of the fest! Keep up with us at: portlandmercury.com/tba

    “They control your drinks, your food, your safe ride home.” by Anonymous

    A few weeks ago I was at my favorite bar for their half-off beer night. A group of guys were getting drink after drink, but refusing to tip. The servers, who were working twice as hard, decided to 86 them. The guys made a scene about how they were too broke to tip. The bartenders let them know if that was the case, they should drink at home. Last night, I was driving Lyft/Uber and picked up a group: two men and a woman. One of them was very open that he did not plan to tip. They were “too poor,” and “that’s how the world works.” I dropped them off, was generally pleasant, and went off for my next ride. In the passenger seat, a forgotten phone rang. It was the guy who didn’t tip. He now expected me to drive back across the city and hand-deliver his device. I hope the people of Portland keep in mind that those providing services to you do it for tips. They control your drinks, your food, your safe ride home. And sometimes they find your phone and have to decide whether to return it to you or throw it out the fucking window.—Anonymous

              This Too Shall Pass      Cache   Translate Page      
    Time’s Up for Louis C.K., Woody Allen, and Raccoons by Elinor Jones

    What’s up, party people, and welcome to This Too Shall Pass! My name’s Elinor Jones, and I’ll be your news and gossip columnist for your biweekly Portland Mercury. I’m gonna be honest with you straight out the gate: I really wish I hadn’t started with “What’s up, party people.” Um, do people still say waazzzzupppppppp? Ahoy-hoy?? (Note to self: learn how people talk.) I know I’ll never fill the dainty shoes of my brilliant predecessor Ann Romano, but I’ll do my best; like her, I’ve got a giant brain filled with impeccable opinions, one hell of a mouth, and a big ol’ half page to fill with steaming hot news. So roll up your sleeves, Portland, and let’s go! (We’re not going to get dirty, but everyone looks cooler with their sleeves rolled up.) Okay, everyone lookin’ cool? Go pee one more time. Nice. Now we can go.

    McCain and Franklin OUT

    How lucky am I to be starting this gig during what has got to be the most insane point in human history?! Last week was a major moment in politics and pop culture as two pillars of American life, Aretha Franklin and John McCain, were laid to rest. My favorite thing about Aretha’s funeral is that it took place over several days, with multiple costume changes; my favorite thing about McCain’s funeral is the footage of George W. Bush sneaking Michelle Obama a piece of candy. PRO: Being on good terms with Michelle Obama is the only thing W’s legacy has going for it. CON: Old dudes slipping women candy is straight-up creepy.


    Loose Lips (Also Sounds Creepy)

    You know who wasn’t at either of those very important national events? Our idiot president, Donald Trump (who, I’ll be sure to mention like Ann Romano before me, lost the popular vote by 2,864,974 votes)! Not only was he not invited to any of the cool parties, but he’s really having a terrible go at this “leader of the free world” thing. There’s a new book from Bob Woodward titled Fear: Trump in the White House, and from what I’ve gathered so far from the leaked snippets, just about everybody in Trump’s top circle calls him some iteration of “complete and utter dum-dum” behind his back, and I love it. Hot on the heels of Woodward’s book was an anonymous op-ed published by the New York Times by someone claiming to be a senior White House official, who tries to comfort us by saying, “there are adults in the room.” Uhhhhh, which adults, specifically? Because it’s not really comforting if the adults are just sneaky puppet masters using the president’s incompetence and stupidity to pull off their seriously evil shit. My shocking hot take: Don’t trust any of ’em!


    Goopy Eggs

    Looking for a vaginal egg that will invigorate your sex life and enhance your chi? Well, too bad! They’re fake! Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle brand, Goop, hyped the health benefits of this dubious product (which is essentially just a well-polished crotch rock), only to be forced to settle a consumer protection lawsuit that pointed out the beneficial effects of said crotch rocks, shockingly, “were not supported by competent and reliable science.” Can’t wait to see what wellness insertion device they’ll be replacing this with! Maybe butt diamonds?! (Would buy.)


    #TooSoon

    Speaking of asses, admitted (not alleged) serial sexual predator Louis C.K. recently made an unannounced appearance at a New York comedy club. People at the show just had to sit there in a closed room while he did whatever the hell he wanted. Sound familiar? I’m thinking maybe this guy hasn’t learned anything at all about consent! And what the hell, comedy club? You let him in?! The Mercury’s own beloved former columnist Ian Karmel summed it up on Twitter: “Can you imagine the bank you’re working at hiring back the guy who jacked off in front of women without their consent because it had been, like, a year or something?” I wasn’t there, so who knows how I would’ve responded, but I know what I want to say now: “Booo! What are you doing here? Your time’s up! Get off the stage! Youuuuu suuuuuuck! BOOOOOOOOOO!”


    Shush Off

    You know who else is on forced vacation? Woody freaking Allen! According to Page Six, the 82-year-old is taking a breather from directing that has nothing at all to do with the fact that nobody wants to finance his films because he’s an alleged child abuser, and it would be career suicide to get on the bad side of his son Ronan Farrow, who toppled Harvey Weinstein and CBS’ Leslie Moonves. Note: Woody Allen and Louis C.K. are now playing the quiet game, and my sisters and I get to decide when they’re done.


    Headline of the Week

    Sometimes a headline is so perfect, there’s no need to cloud your brainspace with details of the story. Here’s one now, from People magazine: “Michael Moore Claims Gwen Stefani Was the Reason Donald Trump Ran for President.” I’m having this framed.


    Reminder: Raccoons Are the Worst

    Here in Portland, according to KGW, a woman is suing her former apartment’s property management company for failing to adequately deal with the building’s communal trash, which led to a raccoon infestation, which in turn led to the woman being bit by a raccoon and racking up $26,000 in medical expenses. I hope she gets that amount, plus a billion dollars for the trauma, because fuck raccoons. Raccoons are the worst. Speaking of trash, Mayor Ted Wheeler announced that Portland will become “the cleanest and most livable city in the United States.” The Oregonian reports that Wheeler intends to put more trash receptacles on the streets and have more crews gathering garbage while somehow not targeting our city’s houseless residents who usually don’t have a choice but to leave their stuff outside. Good luck with that! The solution that leads to the persecution and expulsion of raccoons, rather than living, breathing human people, is cool with me. God, raccoons are just the type of assholes to celebrate a housing crisis, aren’t they?


    The Last Word

    Now we’re at the end! I hoped you enjoyed reading this column as much as I enjoyed drinking white wine spritzers and writing it. Feel free to direct any questions or concerns to a small piece of paper that you fold into an airplane and fly into a recycling bin (don’t litter!), and join me again in two weeks, when I’ll hopefully have an update on bad men being quiet, Trump’s imminent impeachment, and butt diamonds. Bye!

              Thorns Head to Playoffs—Here are the Players to Watch!      Cache   Translate Page      
    by Erin O'Regan

    For the third season in a row, the Portland Thorns—who have been more in sync than Justin Timberlake and Joey Fatone—are heading into another playoff scenario this month... but this time? WE GOT OURSELVES A HOMETOWN THROWDOWN! The Thorns are locked and loaded for a playoff match against Northwest rival the Seattle Reign in Portland on Saturday, September 15 at HIGH NOON. But all eyes are on the North Carolina Courage, who are currently sitting at the top of the table for playoff spots. North Carolina has been a force to be reckoned with this season—dominating the league with only one loss the entire year. And the Courage certainly have something to prove here in Portland—since the Thorns (ahem) defeated the Courage to win the 2017 NWSL Championship. HOLLA FOR YOUR LADIES IN RED!

    WHO TO WATCH

    If you want to see my face contort as if I were doing advanced trig, just ask me who my favorite Thorns player is. (Bzzzt! CANNOT COMPUTE! Bzzzt!) This team is deep with brand new players and experienced talent, but their individual strengths are only activated when they’re on the field together. They’re like the X-Men... only they’re women, there are 23 of them, and they aren’t fictitious. Nonetheless, here are three of my favs that you should keep an eye on during the coming playoffs AND BEYOND.

    Lindsey Horan (AKA “The Great Horan”)

    This lady is an unstoppable midfielder for the Thorns as well as the US Women’s National team. Keep an eye on her during corner and free kicks. Teams try their best to cover her, but during set pieces she still manages to get her head on the ball and into the back of the net.

    Christine Sinclair (AKA Sinc, AKA the Canadian Sensation Rockin’ the PDX Nation, AKA THE FACE OF EXPERIENCE, PATIENCE, AND COMPETITIVE SMARTS)

    Sinclair has showered this city with her talents since her college days at the University of Portland. Positioned as a forward, there’s a lot to love here: She’s (A) got an unmatchable talent to recognize opportunities that less experienced players don’t see coming; (B) creating opportunities and getting the ball where it needs to be—as in, scoring position; (C) the captain of both the Thorns and the Canadian National team; and most importantly (D) level-headed and patient, but watch out for those flashes of fiery competitiveness when she’s after a win. You old-timers know this as THE EYE OF THE TIGER!

    Tobin Heath (AKA Tobes-Lerone, AKA Jedi Master)

    This woman is a stone-faced killer and a MASTER when it comes to fast, furious footwork. Through exemplary ball control, Heath has the power to speed up and slow down the game. Her corner and free kicks bend and break in new ways during each match, and yet, no matter how badass her on-field performance may have been, you can hear her tell reporters that she can still improve and work harder.

    If you’re a fan of great soccer, the playoffs (September 15) and the final (September 22) are going to be sure bets. Want to support women in the workplace? Then get your guts and butts down to Providence Park and start SCREAMCLAPPING for the women in red!

              W. Kamau Bell’s Insightful Sociopolitical Commentary Brings the House Down      Cache   Translate Page      
    The extremely prolific comedian, writer, podcast host and TV star W. Kamau Bell educates as he entertains and audiences are better for it. by Jenni Moore

    Time and time again, W. Kamau Bell’s traveling docuseries, United Shades of America, gives me a renewed sense of how not to be an ignorant piece of shit. Whether the topic is the colonization of Hawaii or the realities of what actually goes down at the US-Mexico border, I become better informed with each episode. Bell has mastered the art of casually interviewing a diverse range of people—he listens to understand—and he explains in his book that he’s “built a career on asking ‘dumb questions.’”

    {{image:1, align:right, width:250}}

    Bell’s 2017 memoir, The Awkward Thoughts of W. Kamau Bell: Tales of a 6’4’’, African American, Heterosexual, Cisgender, Left-Leaning, Asthmatic, Black and Proud Blerd, Mama’s Boy, Dad, and Stand-Up Comedian is geared toward the fanbase he gained from a prolific career as a sociopolitical stand-up comic, podcast host, and TV star. In Awkward Thoughts, Bell tries to play it off like he’s an uncool person by nature, but at this point in his career, it’s obvious Bell is something much cooler than cool: He is a good person. Perhaps that’s why he’s able to joke about things like slavery and lynching in a tasteful-but-still-funny manner. Thirty pages in, I had already LOL’d three times in a quiet downtown coffee shop.

    Were there also poignant arguments and insights about the world we live in as it has evolved in regards to race relations? Of course! And I love those insights—they’re similar to those Bell makes in United Shades of America. I enjoy listening to Bell explain the lack of options for Black kids trying to identify with superheroes, why “Black” absolutely must be capitalized, growing up feeling like an outsider in Black circles, why he thinks the children’s program Doc McStuffins is one of the best TV shows of all time, and why he’s surprisingly tolerant of Southern white folk who ask if they can touch his hair (“Outside of the South, it’s ‘No, you need to go make some Black friends.’”) Bell’s expression of Blackness is both familiar and relatable, and his parenting stories about raising his daughter are seriously hilarious.

    Though I certainly enjoyed Awkward Thoughts, somewhere in the middle I wondered if listening to the audio book would have been the better choice. After all, Bell has three successful podcasts/radio shows where he also tackles an array of topics: Denzel Washington Is the Greatest Actor of All Time Period, Politically Re-Active, and Kamau Right Now! Plus, his recent Netflix special Private School Negro is maybe even funnier than the show I caught at the Aladdin back in 2016. It was a couple weeks before the election, and after his set, Bell announced he wanted to meet fans and take some pics while wearing a T-shirt that read, “Bad Hombre Raised by a Nasty Woman.”

    Bell has family in Portland, and it’s a city he’s familiar with. He even filmed an episode of United Shades here—exploring the problematic history behind our highly gentrified city. W. Kamau Bell is good people, and he still knows how to keep it real.

              John Cameron Mitchell Dishes on Shrill, Anthem, and Working It to Pay His Mother’s Bills      Cache   Translate Page      
    John Cameron Mitchell dishes on Shrill, Anthem and working hard to pay his mother’s medical bills. by Suzette Smith

    “My joke was I used to be a Tour de Force. Now I’m forced to tour,” says John Cameron Mitchell—best known as the writer, director, and star of Hedwig and the Angry Inch—over a murky phone connection. It sounds a little like he’s in the bath. He seems relaxed and congenial. It sort of feels like I’m talking to an old Hollywood star. His manners are exemplary, but he’s also down-to-earth and ready to discuss everything from Shortbus (a heartfelt, sex-positive indie mission-statement film Mitchell directed in 2006) to his mother’s mounting medical bills which have pressed him into ceaseless work.

    “It’s a great privilege to do these concerts,” he says. “But these last few years have just been non-stop raising money for her care. I’m actually with her right now and she’s happy. I just want to keep her happy and cared for, but the amount of money needed for that, in this country, has kind of crippled me.”

    Earlier this year, Mitchell toured Australia with a Hedwig live show, which he describes as “a massive project with wigs, makeup people, hair people, tour band members, managers—you know what I mean.” In Portland, for a one-off appearance, he’s planning on doing something a little more intimate, a “quick fun thing” at Revolution Hall. “I mean it’ll be a long fun thing.” Mitchell says. “It’s two movies and some songs.” He and the audience will watch two of his films back-to-back (Hedwig and the film he directed earlier this year, How to Talk to Girls at Parties) and Mitchell will provide a “drunk director’s commentary.”

    If he’s read the negative review I gave How to Talk to Girls, he doesn’t mention it (manners!) and despite disliking that film, I would love to gain some clarity on the choices behind casting Nicole Kidman as a punk. Also, Hedwig and Shortbus were so influential for me that I will probably be interested in whatever Mitchell does for years to come—especially if what he does involves him “having a nice bottle of Barolo next to the screen telling stories. Turning the sound down and turning it up and just having a hoot along the way.”

    “In effect, the Revolution Hall show is kind of a wrap party” he says, referencing the Hulu TV show he’s been acting on, Shrill—a comedy series based on Lindy West’s book partially about her experiences working at the Mercury’s sister paper The Stranger. “I play Gabe, the boss.” Mitchell explains. (Me: “So you’re playing Dan Savage?” Mitchell: “No.”) “It’s more inspired by the book than a direct translation. My character is a former grunge record label guy who used to be in bands and is always ranting that the ’90s was better than today.” (Me: “So you’re playing Sean Nelson?” Mitchell: “No.”) “I actually got to write my own character. I didn’t write the dialogue, but the writers quizzed me about his background. I think he might have had a Kill Rock Stars kind of label. Maybe he sold out. He’s the editor of the Weekly Thorn now. There’s a certain unease. His mantra is, ‘Question authority but don’t question me.’”

    One more cool thing: Mitchell will also, at intermission, sing a few songs from his upcoming anthology podcast Anthem: Homunculus, accompanied by the guitarist from Hedwig, Ted Liscinski. Mitchell says that Homunculus is loosely based on his life. “It’s about a guy doing a telethon on his phone because he has a tumor and he’s out of insurance.” No word yet on when Homunculus will hit podcast airwaves, but Mitchell assures me it will be sometime next year.

              Hall Monitor: Renter Beware      Cache   Translate Page      
    What can city council learn from the mistakes at Holgate Manor? by Alex Zielinski

    In April, residents of Holgate Manor, a Southeast Portland apartment complex, were politely asked to leave—or else. In exchange, the building’s new owner, Fred Kleinbub, promised a few thousand dollars to help them move out. If Holgate Manor’s residents chose to stay, Kleinbub warned, they’d face a 9.9 percent rent increase by July.

    Kleinbub’s proposed rent increase falls just under the 10 percent threshold that would have forced him to cover the relocation costs for all of his tenants under the city’s 2017 renter relocation ordinance. But by keeping the rent increase at 9.9 percent, Kleinbub could instead use his own financial incentive to quietly nudge some anxious tenants to self-evict—and legally price out the rest.

    It worked. Renters living in 23 of Holgate Manor’s 82 units took advantage of the move-out offer, splintering a close-knit community.

    Some of the remaining tenants are now withholding their newly increased rent until Kleinbub improves their current apartments, which they say are moldy and rodent-infested.

    The Holgate Manor debacle is a microcosm of what many renters are experiencing across Portland, both in apartments and single-family homes. As landlords skirt city penalties by barely adhering to new regulations, the 45 percent of Portlanders who rent—some 300,000 individuals—are left with few options. Despite a dedicated push from city hall to strengthen tenant protections, Portland is far from creating the kind of stability for renters that Mayor Ted Wheeler promised on the campaign trail.

    But Holgate Manor’s blunders might inform future pro-renter policies.

    One place to begin: Requiring that landlords give advance notice to their tenants and the city before putting a residential property on the market. The city currently has no tracking system to know when a building like Holgate Manor is for sale, let alone the ability to catch the listing before it’s nabbed by a private investor.

    “There is a huge lack of [city] oversight,” says Holgate Manor resident Sara Brassfield. “We could be investing in our community instead of splitting it apart.”

    According to Commissioner Chloe Eudaly, resistance from the city’s powerful lobby of landlords and property developers has made that investment process difficult.

    “Many people think the city can fix the housing crisis,” says Eudaly, who championed last year’s relocation ordinance. “But new regulations from the city face extraordinary resistance. Anyone who thinks we can solve the housing crisis without regulation is kidding themselves.”

    Eudaly is in the midst of getting city council to pass a new tenant screening process—one that will ideally make it easier and more affordable for renters to find housing. After that, she says, the focus will be on new rules that give the city and tenants a 90-day notice before a rental property is put on the market—and the first chance to purchase the property.

    While these proposed policies can’t help Holgate Manor’s current tenants, they’re hoping their pushback will help protect future Portland-area renters.

    “It’s like planting a seed,” says Brassfield, “for a tree you won’t sit under.”

              This Is How It Happens:      Cache   Translate Page      
    by Anonymous

    Donald Trump wins reelection in 2020. Then in 2024, when he is Constitutionally ineligible to run for President, he is selected as the Vice- Presidential nominee by the GOP. The Republican Presidential candidate would obviously be a figurehead, overshadowed by the bigger-than-life Donald.
    Since by then the Republicans in Congress and the judiciary and statehouses will have gerrymandered the local election districts so completely in their favor, that a victory in 2024 is easy to imagine.
    Shortly after January 20, 2025, the Figurehead President , (an aged white man no doubt) , would resign, citing “health reasons” , and Vice-President Donald Trump becomes President-again.
    The 25th Amendment is vague about all this and it would wind up before the Supreme Court, which by then will be completely packed with Trump appointees. They would rule for Trump, just like the 2000 Court, packed with Republican appointees, ruled for Bush.

    Of course President Trump, Part II , won’t have much a country to rule over, as we will have devolved into a disparate and desperate society with street fighting and armed clashes –a civil war that makes the Lincoln –era Civil War seem like a schoolyard scrap. Russian will be the dominate global power, and in the U.S. there will the only the rich and everybody else. No unions, no middle class, no environmental protections, press restricted by the courts -it goes on and on.
    This is how it happens, and don’t kid yourself that it can’t happen here.

              TBA: PUSHIT! Has Audiences Chasing Art (and NIC Kay) Down North Williams      Cache   Translate Page      
    by April MacKay

    As I approach the appointed meeting place, it’s easy to see where NIC Kay's PUSHIT! is set to depart. Dozens of onlookers gather around a single figure, clad in a space-print bodysuit, contorted into a pose indicating a heavy burden and internal struggle. From a tightly braided set of ribbons around their neck, a horde of balloons float in the breeze. This must be NIC Kay.

    From the press notes, I knew that this was a section of an ongoing work the artist described as “exercises in getting-well-soon.” It's presented as “a meditation on emotional labor and the impossibility of the stage as a place of freedom for the Black performer.” There were notes that the experience could involve walking about three miles, over the course of two hours, so I prepared for a leisurely afternoon stroll. I came to witness interesting movement and gain new perspective on what it means to be a Black performer.

    I have to say, none of it was what I expected.

    2018_TBA_Pushit_Briana_Cerezo-8389.jpg

    It was not a leisurely stroll. I’m a long-legged athletic person so I tend to walk pretty fast. But, not only did I struggle to match the pace, there times when the mobile audience needed to break into a full run after the artist.

    A costumed person tied to a large clump of balloons getting chased by a hundred people down N Williams may not be the strangest thing to see in Portland, but it was enough to prompt several calls of “What is this? What’s going on?” “It’s an art performance,” came the replies. “You’re welcome to join us.”

    I found my thoughts constantly echoing the questions of passersby: What is this? What’s going on?

    2018_TBA_Pushit_Briana_Cerezo-8384.jpg

    Performance art can be a tricky thing. Abstraction seems to be the way to seek a higher level of artistry. This makes a certain degree of sense. If the artist wants the audience to have to think about what they are witnessing, spoon-feeding the material isn’t going to stimulate any brainwaves. Personally, I question the capacity of art to have any real impact when the message is so abstracted that it becomes something closer to a whisper.

    2018_TBA_Pushit_Briana_Cerezo-8354.jpg
    Briana Cerezo

    There was a lot of walking, but I felt like there wasn’t anything really happening. NIC Kay never strayed from character in spite of traffic, road blocks, fallen children’s bikes, unruly shrubbery, and low hanging tree branches (that claimed the lives of a few balloons). It was obvious that NIC Kay is clearly a skilled and talented movement artist. Whenever the crowd stopped, flashes of cultural and contemporary dance styles peaked through, but each glimpse was brief and only enough for a trained eye to recognize. I wanted the glimpses to be longer and more frequent.

    2018_TBA_Pushit_Briana_Cerezo-8357.jpg
    Briana Cerezo

    My favorite movement came at the very beginning of the walk, when NIC Kay first walked forward with their hips and legs pulled slightly back by balloons. The movement focused on taking very stressed, silent steps, interspersed with grunts and exhales to accompany tense, slow shape-shifting.

    2018_TBA_Pushit_Briana_Cerezo-8367.jpg
    Briana Cerezo

    And I loved the balloons. Not even just because one was a mirrored disco ball glittering in the sun. The way the balloons pulled against NIC’s neck forced the artist to labor forward in opposition to their very lightness. How do you labor against something that floats? NIC Kay will show you how, complete with a genuinely sweaty brow.

    2018_TBA_Pushit_Briana_Cerezo-8381.jpg
    Briana Cerezo

    I found myself constantly considering the symbolism of the costuming. Was this supposed to establish the performer as an outsider because Black artists and people are still treated like "the other” or like aliens in our Western, white culture? Was the color choice of predominantly white balloons an intentional comment on the impact of living in white-dominant culture? Also, where did they get this bodysuit? It was pretty awesome.

    In the end, I feel like I walked away with nothing but questions. The movement, staging, and back-story revealed very little about the artist’s intentions. I couldn't find the direction they wished the audience to go.

              Hunting in Carbon County - Scarcity to Resurgence      Cache   Translate Page      
    Post #1 of 5:
                  

    Hunting is Carbon’s second skin.  Though we’re not unique in this regard, life here is inextricably tied to it.

    For hunting reaches beyond basic sustenance, it pulls us onto the proving ground, and connects us to this land.

    The comradery and the day in the woods is enough for some.  But for many, a day without something to drag out and brag about is devastating.

    John Deppe shot his first deer in December 1873.  Young John was the son of Henry Deppe, a well-known Pine Swamp saw-miller.  His Hickory Run area deer dressed out at 115 pounds.  And John was just one month shy of his seventh birthday.


    Escaped from Mr. Ash's Game preserve on the Mahoning Mountain: Lewis Steigerwalt, reclined front left was the owner of the hotel, post office, and farm implement business at the crossroads of Andreas, Schuylkill County, just over the Carbon County line from East Penn.  This 1923 picture of 16 buck hunters proudly displaying this fine 8 or 9-point buck is a testament to the scarcity of deer in our area at this time.  The back of the photo says "first deer shot in Andreas," certainly deer were so scarce that shooting one was a cause to take multiple poses with it.  More about this story and the men in the picture can be found in the end notes of this post.
    Were these men cursed?  Many died through unfortunate circumstances, see End Notes for details.

    And this is Lehigh.  Once again…
    And still the timid deer come down
    To drink, at eve and morning;
    And still the laurel blooms as bright
    As in my life's glad dawning....

    ~Augusta Moore, from Poems of Places Anthology 31, 1876-79
    (The complete poem is reprinted in the End Notes section #3.)


    This is a young Snyder boy of Kresgeville
    with his first buck in the early 1950s.


    Today, Pennsylvanians expect to harvest a minimum 300,000+ deer per year.  Many youth have good reason to have high hopes of filling their scopes with that magical chestnut-brown hair.

    But John Deppe’s first deer in 1873 was rather significant.  The harvests in those days were exceedingly slimmer than those in our modern age. 

    This is the first of three installments that will examine the record of big game hunting in our area over the last 140 years.








    The Rabenold-Finsel gang of Spring Hill Mountain
     29 November 2004.
       Even a button-buck is cause for celebration, especially
    when it's the only deer shot that year in camp.
    A son's first deer is a special type of pride for fathers.  That buck
    season was one of the many exceptionally warm ones in recent years.





















    In the Beginning

    You have to begin at the start of it all, when man first evolved into tribes to see the evolution of this special rite of passage.

    From Colonial times up into our nationhood, many area farmers were known as “long hunters.”  The most famous one in this area was perhaps Philip Ginter who discovered coal in Summit Hill in 1791 while out hunting deer.

    Hunters like Ginter were farmers first.  And once all of their crops were turned in for the fall, they turned their attention to hunting. 

    Not just for a few days mind you.  A “long” time entailed, two and three weeks.  They’d start in late November or early December and would promise to be home for Christmas.  Thus our modern day season was set.
    Long Days in Camp - Even into the "modern" era of hunting
    did men hunt "long."  This hunter, a patron of John Snyder's
    "Jonas Hotel" speaks of his glum life back at work after
    17 days hunting in Jonas, just over the Carbon County line.  Many of the
    patrons of these old hotels were doctors and professionals from the city.
    Many more letters and pictures from these men will be posted
    in the next installment of "Hunting in Carbon County." (A link
    will appear here once it is finished and posted.)


    Ginter, like many small farmers of the Mahoning Valley, and valleys just like it, looked for the “buck season” to help expand their land holdings.

    Their goal wasn’t only to salt away venison for the winter, but also to gather as many deer skins as possible.  Each skin garnered a price of $1.  Hence the term “buck skin” came to be applied and the male deer forever known as a “buck.”

    In those days 100-acres of farm land could be had for $100.  Some hunters were known to expand their farms at 100-acre clips every few years mainly from money for buck skins.

    One of the most famous of all area hunters, an almost mythical man, was Jeremiah “Old Jerry” Greening of “Rattlesnake,” a hamlet of Blooming Grove, Pike County. 

    His farm was just northeast over Monroe County from Carbon and he was known to have killed “upward of 500 deer” at a time when deer were much more scarce than they are today.

    Jerry farmed and had many sons who also hunted.  Many of his exploits were told and retold all over the country in syndicated newspaper stories in the 1870s and into the 1890s.  More will be told of this man in the “Tall Tales” section of Post #3 in this series.

    purchase price for their breeding "inclosure." - Dec 1873
























    Game Preserves:

    It could be said that modern deer conservation started in Carbon with Josiah White.  He was no doubt the first to start a game preserve here in Carbon though he wasn’t the last.

    White took up residence here in the winter of 1817/18 to build the “Stone Turnpike,” the origin of the Switchback Railroad.  He was the progenitor of the “the Old Company,” the Lehigh Coal and Navigation Company.

    By 1828, he built the first of the grand homes in what is today Jim Thorpe.  He called it “Parkhurst” where Kemmerer Park is today. 

    Even before he retrieved his family from his home outside Philadelphia, White brought his eighty-year old mother here.  And before he called for his children and wife, he built Carbon’s first game preserve for deer, elk, and peacocks to entertain his soon to arrive children.

    He was not the last to do so.  Asa Packer had one too.  And so did T. A. Snyder, the builder of Flagstaff Park, the inter-urban trolley line, and the incomparable Colonial Court Mansion in Lehighton. 
    Descendants of Henry Melber still do two things as all
    the successive Mauch Chunk Melbers did: Work as undertakers
    and hunt, and not necessarily in that order.  Those who know Tom
    and his son Nate Melber will attest there are no truer sportsmen
    than they are.  For more on this story and how the Melbers
    were fully exonerated, see the End Notes of this post.

    One upstanding hunting family in Carbon was once wrongly accused of hunting a deer from Snyder’s preserve.

    The first evening of Doe Camp at Little Acres
    Farm, Kresgeville, 15 December 1959.

    The men and boys of Little Acres Farm - Doe Season December 1959 - Dreaming of sugar plums and venison.
    There were many efforts by the state in these days that we take for granted today, such as the game lands. 

    In July of 1914 Dr. Joseph Kalbfus and Dr. Penrose of the State Game Commission visited Penn Forest township to select and declare a site for a game preserve, to be stocked with deer from Michigan. 
    Dr. Kalbfus not only visited Penn Forest to set up
    a deer preserve area, but also implemented the re-stocking
    of deer from Trexler's Preserve to counties
    in need of deer: Lehigh, Potter, Elk, Berks,
    Wyoming, and others in Jan 1917.































    The men concluded that “few places in the state afford such an excellent place for raising deer than in Penn Forest Township.”

    People went to great effort to stock deer in this area.  In the fall of 1890, Henry O. Hughes of Carbon Hill, Alabama, helped to restock deer here by shipping two first-year fawns to his father-in-law William Evans in Slatington.

    The article said the deer still had their spots, which the newspaper account compared to the spots of a leopard.  This evidence suggests that the average citizen did not have first-hand knowledge of what a young deer looked like, evidence of their rarity at that time.

    In 1891, the “famous Alligator Club of Emmaus” sold their three “handsome” deer to Jacob Reichard of Haymaker’s Island on the Lehigh, near Allentown.  

    “Two of the deer were bred in captivity, and all of them are very fine, and as thoroughly domesticated as house cats.  That they will prove a great attraction to visitors to the island cannot be doubted.”

    These two articles provide a curious glimpse of life around white-tail deer here and provides ample evidence that deer were considered a rare animal indeed.


    Colonel Harry Trexler
    This hearty buck was shot between Trachsville
    and Little Gap, where Russell Bollinger was known
    to hunt.  Shown here is Russell's first wife
    Marian (George) who died of cancer
    in 1938 at the age of 28.  


    No one embodies the era more than Colonel Harry Trexler.  A self-made millionaire of the Lehigh Valley, Trexler made a fortune in the Portland cement business.  But he was also a logger, purchasing thousands of acres of timbering land.

    The present day boundaries of Hickory Run State Park were purchased by Trexler.  He remodeled the former Samuel Gould homestead and entertained guests with apple-jack punch and fishing jaunts to nearby Sandy Spring.

    The Gould property is adjacent to the Hickory Run cemetery where members of the Gould family are buried along with other logging and sawmill families of the area.  Among them, those who drown in the flash flood caused by the breach of a 70-acre sawmill dam in October of 1849.

    Trexler planned on donating the land for public recreation.  He said, “We live only a short distance from the anthracite coal region where there is scarcely a blade of grass growing…”  The area lacked deer habitat and Trexler was fixed on improving it.

    He wanted men and their families to have a place for outdoor recreation, “rather than have them loafing around pool rooms and saloons fomenting anarchism, I would like to see Hickory Run developed into a state park.”

    Several state agencies (the Game Commission, Fish Commission and the Department of Forest to name a few) commenced campaigns to receive the park from Trexler’s will and trust.

    Trexler passed away in a car accident in 1935, and oddly, had taken the lands out of his will due to the bureaucratic wrangling.  Eventually, trustees of his estate oversaw the land transfer into the park and hunting lands we have today.

    One recipient of Trexler’s will was Joseph Heimbach.  The Heimbach farm is the last large farmstead, on both sides of Route 534, after Hawk Falls and before the camping area.

    Heimbach or his surviving wife, would receive an annual salary from the estate to the amount of $500 per year.  Heimbach may have been some sort of caretaker or overseer of Trexler’s land or perhaps payment for the right of way through his farm.
    The smallest 6-pointer ever?  Another deer shot by Russell Bollinger
    of Trachsville sometime in the 1930s.  His father was Jonas Bollinger who
    was a nephew of John and Charles Snyder of Jonas Hotel.  The hotel
    was started by Jonas Snyder around 1850.  He had two boys (John and Charles)
    who ran the hotel from 1900 until 1950.  Russell's grandmother Emaline
    Bollinger was one of four of Jonas Snyder's daughters.  More on the Jonas
    Hotel will be written in Post #2 and Post #4.

    A 1954 photo of Col. Trexler's Game Preserve - Lehigh County


















    The Bizarre and the Curious

    Colonel Trexler also endowed a large game preserve just south of Carbon in Lehigh County.   In March 1911, a trainload of wild game (forty does, ten bucks, and three buffaloes) were unloaded at Colonel Trexler’s game preserve. 

    The three rail cars delivered the animals from a preserve in New Hampshire as well as ones captured from the “Blue Mountain Forest.”
    January 1917 - How rare was wild game at
    this time?  This Allentown Democrat article
    discusses released 8 deer, rabbits, and one
    wild turkey from the Philadelphia Zoo.  One.


    The train arrived in Coplay at 8:00 PM March 2nd.  Two and sometimes three crated deer fit into one wagon.  However, each buffalo, weighing about 1,500 pounds, would each take up their own wagon en route to the preserve.

    A total of forty wagons were used to haul them the three miles from the station, the “menagerie of wagons resembling a circus procession never seen in this county.”

    Lehighton also had a game preserve, created by William Ash in 1910.  Many are familiar with the section of land west of Baer Memorial Park known as “Ashtown.”  Ash’s home still stands there, a grand example of the Sears & Roebuck catalog homes of that time.

    Ash’s preserve was located on the Mahoning Mountain near what is today known as “Graverville.”
    Wild Turkey:
    A rare 1950s sight on the Barlieb Farm
    in Kunkletown. 

    The first deer shot in the Andreas area in a generation was actually a buck that escaped from Ash’s preserve.  (Note the picture above.)


     “Scarce and Scattered” - 1880-1930

    In this time period, lumber was king in Pennsylvania and Trexler was only one of many Pennsylvanians who started their fortunes in lumber. 

    Williamsport was at one time the lumber capital of the world.  In 1899 Pennsylvania reached its peak of annual lumber production with 2.3 billion board feet of lumber harvested. 

    It made many in the state into “millionaires,” the moniker for Williamsport High School today.  Today, Pennsylvania boasts of 59% or 16.7 million acres of forested land.

    By 1900 there were only nine to 9-13 million acres of forest in the state.  Compare this number to the estimated 28 million acres back to William Penn’s time in the 1680s. 
    The squeeze on big game was on.

    The Great Pine Swamp of northern Carbon County was filled with lumber operations.  The plentiful old growth hemlock trees were cleared, feeding the stave mills for barrel making and the slab bark sent to the many leather tanneries, Lehigh Tannery being one of the largest in the world.

    Indeed the area economy revolved around timber and hunting.  Carbon’s place at the hub of the world-wide distribution of anthracite coal placed its own pressures on the woodlands. 

    Canal boat captains would work the waterways all summer long.  And once December brought the first freeze-over to the slack water, the men would commence hauling logs out of the Pine Swamp to be used in boat repair and boat building at the Weissport boat yard.

    There is some conflicting evidence over just how rare deer had become in the state.  There is no question that the number of deer and big game was extremely small compared to today, through loss of habitat alone.

    Six deer in Weissport - Most likely shot in Potter County, Reuben Small's favored spot in the 1930s.  Reuben, from Massachusetts, met and married Lehighton's Esther Koch at business school, forming Lehighton's
    "Small and Koch Dairy" in the 1920s.  

    (Click here from more on this dairy and other early Lehighton businesses.
    The Small and Koch segment is near the end of this hyperlink.)

    This Weissport scene is sometime in the early 1940s, as the McCall Bridge in the background was completed around 1938.
    Scarce and Scattered

    Scarce they were indeed, making folks curious about wild game in those days.
    Hotels owners used wild game as prizes and to grab attention at this time with “old-fashioned hustling matches” that attracted crowds and brought in money.

    Fred Horlacher (before he brewed his famous Allentown beer) was a tavern owner in “Bowmansville” (Bowmanstown).  On February 1879 he held a match and social hop.  There were a variety of prizes, but the one sure to draw a crowd was the top prize: a “tame bear.”

    Similarly, Moses Rabenold’s Hotel (near Emmaus) held a “splendid year old buck deer, just now getting his first set of antlers” as a prize at his hotel.  Surely, wild animals were of such scarcity and yet held in high esteem by the public to make such offerings an attraction to the average citizen. 

    Perhaps the fact that a four-point buck found in Albrightsville in 1892 best attests to just how rare deer were at this time.  An article in the local paper stated how Mr. Dench discovered this buck skull and rack and how it was the talk of the area. 

    Again, this was only a four-point deer.  He didn’t shoot it.  He found it.  Would this make news today?

    Evidence that deer were curious to people and therefore somewhat rare, can be found in Lehighton’s druggist T. D. Thomas.

              McHenry VFW Post 4600 more than a watering hole      Cache   Translate Page      
    Mention of a Veterans of Foreign Wars hall might conjure up images of war-weathered old men chomping cigars and draining beers in a smoky barroom.

    To a point, the cliche holds up. Brick-and-mortar VFW halls were opened to give American soldiers returning from World War II a spot to meet fellow comrades – many of whom returned rattled by overseas combat.

    "They needed a battle-buddy safe place where they could unload their troubles on one another," said Lynn Rolf, a 42-year-old Iraq War veteran programs director with the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States in Kansas City, Missouri. "But people automatically connect the negative connotations of drinking with troubled veterans."  

    In McHenry, the multimillion-dollar Queen of Hearts spectacle at VFW Post 4600 has shined a spotlight on the decades-old hall and raised some questions: What is the role of the VFW in the community? Is it more than a beer hall?

    Post 4600: An origin story

    It was Sept. 25, 1945, three weeks after the end of World War II.

    A group of McHenry County veterans met in the basement of St. Mary's School and created Fox River Valley Post 4600. Three weeks later, the National Veterans of Foreign Wars headquarters issued the group a charter, and it formally became established.

    The men behind Post 4600 spent most of 1946 recruiting members. They marched in parades. They raised cash through fundraising dances.

    In 1947, Post 4600 hosted its first carnival and raised enough money to buy a 13.7-acre parcel known as the Conway Woods (now at 3002 Route 120) for $5,000. Concrete was poured, and Post 4600 finished its home by Dec. 7, 1948.

    Several expansions followed: a dance hall in 1950 for fundraisers, dances and bingo nights and a bigger barroom on New Year's Eve 1960.

    When Post 4600 celebrated its 50th anniversary in 1995, more than 350 veterans had joined. That number now is more than 400.

    Supporting vets

    Gary Snell played his first Little League game on the ball diamonds dotting Post 4600's property.

    It was 1955. The 72-year-old McHenry man was only a boy.

    "The farthest thing from a 9 or 10-year-old’s mind is the thought that 10 years later you would be drafted to go to Korea or Vietnam," Snell said.

    A graduate of McHenry East High School, Snell was drafted and sent to Korea. It was 1965, and he wouldn't return to McHenry until 1968. That's when he joined Post 4600, and he's been a member ever since.

    "I've seen more than my share of parades," Snell said.

    A lot has changed since Snell joined.

    The baseball diamonds now are maintained by the McHenry Baseball Association, the hall has expanded twice, and people from across the U.S. know about the Queen of Hearts raffle bringing the post millions of dollars.

    The other day, Snell talked to someone in Portland, Oregon, who had heard about Post 4600. Snell sold tickets to someone all the way from Tinley Park.

    "If they were giving away money in Tinley Park, I wouldn’t drive down there to get it," Snell said, laughing.

    To guys like Snell, a witness to the VFW's growth over the years, Post 4600 is more than a bar. It's a family.

    "We do whatever we can to help veterans," Snell said. "It’s not always easy. No matter what you do, it takes money."

    Expanding relief

    VFW halls like Post 4600 have what's called a relief fund.

    It's a reserve of money available to veterans who might need help to buy a tank of gas to get to work, or a month's rent to keep a roof over their head.

    "We can’t answer every phone call," Snell said, "but we try to help."

    The VFW's board has not yet determined what percentage of Queen of Hearts dollars will go into the fund, VFW Cmdr. Dwane Lungren said.

    Lungren took over the post in August 2017. He said Post 4600 offers scholarships to the high school and elementary schoolchildren of veterans that range from $250 to $1,000.

    But Lungren's vision now is focused on in-house improvements to make Post 4600 known for its food. Since the Queen of Hearts raffle has brought crowds to McHenry, the kitchen has been churning out hundreds of pizzas to feed visitors.

    The kitchen soon could be expanded with a stone oven to make homemade pizza dough. Plans to build a beer garden have been approved. The post now has a new outdoor cooler and freezer.

    The expansion, Lungren said, will make Post 4600 a bigger draw in the community.

    "It used be the image of old men sitting around smoking cigars and drinking beers," Lungren said. "Things have changed."

    I think the smartphone parallel is the OP pointing out the selective suffering. Vegans seem to want a high five for not eating or harming animals, but refuse to also add humans into the equation. And The above is right. Where there is famine, they don’t have the choice as what to nourish themselves with. They eat what they can. Good luck on your global desire of veganism. I’m SO enjoying my burger tonight.

    🙄 Actually no. I’m not responsible to someone else’s children, thank you very much. I am responsible to me, myself, and I. Go ahead, call me selfish. I didn’t sign up to lead or set an example to someone’s kids because they decided to procreate, nor do I believe in “It takes a village to raise a child”. They fucked, decided to keep the little assholes, they can deal with other people not praising them or assisting them for their choices when the little messes are acting up. Not my responsibility or job to blow sunshine up the asses of parents with ill-behaved monsters for kids.

    But thanks for the projection.

              Re: Shut Up Already      Cache   Translate Page      

    Yeah I don't police what people eat and I don't want people policing what I eat. And the only friends I have problem with this are rich white people and vegans (most of the time they are both).

    I had a friend who lived in Seattle, who was wealthy because of her husband's job, and would preach all about being a vegetarian and eating organic food and how if you weren't supporting specific food systems, then you were "part of the problem."

    My rebuttal was we need to first be concerned that everyone in the world has access to food, first, and then maybe we can discuss dictating terms of how that food is sourced. It's easy to sit on a high horse when your "household" brings in six figures, you live in a place in the country where there is a nothing but organic, locally sourced food, and you can pretend that you didn't come from abject poverty and your parents live on junk food, soda pop, and cigarettes. Oh and did I mention she would also eat at Arby's when she wanted to secretly eat fast food? Now I don't eat at Arby's so I can't actually verify that what they serve is meat, but I'm fairly certain whatever she was eating wasn't vegetarian.

    Later, she would return to eating meat (meat she insisted was only ethically source and humanely slaughtered > what?). She insisted that anyone eating meat that wasn't sourced the way the meat she ate was, again, "part of the problem."

    She then went on to go to a scam school in Italy to learn all about food and gastronomy, which she paid for with the funds from her divorce from her wealthy husband (but before she divorced him she enjoyed an extravagant vacation in Japan with him, that he paid for, of course).

    The point I am trying to make is that being an insufferable asshole about anything (what you eat, how you are better than other people because you or you don't _) does nothing to convince people that they should also do what you are doing (or not doing). All it does is make people hate you.

    Everyone cares about different things. Vegans want to live in a world where everyone is vegan.
    I want to live in a world where people don't starve to death, people have good, nutritious food to eat, people (including children) aren't going hungry anywhere in any way, children aren't having food taken from them and thrown in a garbage can because their parents owe a school system money, and where most food made in the western world was't processed, toxic waste crap created to make people addicts and make corporations wealthy. I want to live in world where wealthy white people don't get everything at the expense of everyone else and then have the nerve to preach like self righteous assholes to the rest of the world. But that's just me (and that's just the tip of the iceberg of the kind of world I would like to live in...)

              Re: Horrible Parents      Cache   Translate Page      

    The entire point of eating out a restaurant WITH children is to socialize your children. That means you pay attention to them, teach them how to behave properly, and make clear what is NOT acceptable behavior. If the children do not behave, you leave. This is what decent people do. Children will misbehave and children will need to be directed and each child will learn in different ways, but they will learn. All of this is how we grow people who know how to participate in society.

    The problem today is that there are WAY TOO MANY HUMAN BEINGS who are breeding who have no interest in actually being parents, teaching their children, taking responsibility, or GETTING OFF THEIR MOTHERFUCKING PHONES. Another problem today is that there are way too many so-called adults who do not know how to behave properly or have basic skills for participating in a society with other people themselves, so they can't be any kind of example of how to behave properly for children.

    People need to pull their heads out of their asses and remember that OTHER PEOPLE EXIST and they also need to STOP BREEDING!!! Children, whether you have them or not, are always watching and absorbing information by watching other human beings. We are all responsible (including the guy who screamed at the parents about paying their bill if they'd take their fucking kids and leave - which I guarantee has more of an impact on the kids than the pretending to be mortified parents).

    Here's what I would tell people like the Kruses:

    It's great that you like Portland. We do too. But your idea of what Portland is is probably wrong. We're not like the TV show and we're not like the NY Times articles you've read.

    If you move here, after a while you'll get the sinking feeling that you were taken for a ride.

    You WERE taken for a ride. We won't meet your expectations. Our town won't be as cool as you thought it would be. We're just average --but we didn't do that to you. That wasn't us, it was you, and your misplaced trust in whatever arbiters of cred you rely on.

    Creating a community is hard. You can't just buy it.

    Instead of moving from the last place you don't like anymore to this new place you probably won't like either, why not take whatever it is that you think Portland is and get to work creating it where you are?

              Usa, scrive un libro su come uccidere il marito: accusata di averlo fatto davvero      Cache   Translate Page      
    Aveva scritto un libro intitolato "Come uccidere tuo marito". Peccato che poi la realtà abbia superato la finzione, dato che lei suo marito forse l'ha ucciso per davvero.Nancy Crampton Brophy, 68 anni, di Portland, negli Stati Uniti, ha scritto ben tre libri sullo stesso argomento: "The Wrong Cop", che raccontava di una donna che immaginava in quali modi poter uccidere suo marito, "The Wrong Husband", che aveva come protagonista una donna che si fingeva morta, per sottrarsi alle violenze del compagno, e l'ultimo, "How to murder your husband". Qui, l'autrice aveva compilato un vero e proprio manuale che spiegava come uccidere il proprio marito e non farsi scoprire, come ha specificato il Corriere della Sera. Ma ora, la vicenda che la riguarda non è la trama di un nuovo libro.Il 5 settembre scorso Nancy Crampton Brophy è stata arrestata con l'accusa di omicidio. Il marito Daniel, 63 anni, era stato trovato morto il 2 giugno, nella cucina dove lavorava come chef e dove faceva lezioni ad alcuni studenti. Era stato raggiunto da alcuni colpi di pistola. Il 3 giugno, la donna aveva informato del delitto i suoi utenti Facebook, proclamandosi distrutta per aver perso il "marito e migliore amico".

    Twitter Slams NBC News For Sneering At Grassroots Donors Opposing Kavanaugh

    Things that should offend NBC News: Republicans' commitment to tax cuts by taking access to health care away from millions of Americans, their rush to pack the Supreme Court with extremists who will leave ordinary people with nothing and corporations with everything, and their utter and extreme disregard for women's individual rights to control their own bodies.

    Those are obscene.

    If you're NBC News, you'd rather focus on the angry callers to Susan Collins' office, framing them as "vulgar."

    One caller on Friday, September 7 at 6:11 p.m., left a message saying, in part: "If you care at all about women's choice, vote 'no' on Kavanaugh. Don't be a dumb bitch. F*** you also."

    In a second voice mail, the caller calls Collins "a feckless, feckless, feckless woman standing there letting Trump and his appointees steal the right to choose what women do with their bodies. And you stood by, 'Oh, I don't know. I'm so naive.' F*** you. F*** you."

    And in a letter sent to her Portland, Maine office, the writer on August 9 says that "EVERY waitress who serves you is going to spit in your food, and that's if you're lucky, you f***ing c***! Think of that every meal."

              Rod Strikland      Cache   Translate Page      
    Fue elegido en la decimonovena posición de la primera ronda del Draft de la NBA de 1988 por New York Knicks,4​ lo cual desconcertó a los aficionados neoyorkinos, ya que contaban en el equipo con el rookie del año de la temporada anterior, Mark Jackson, ocupando el mismo puesto que Strickland.5​ Saliendo desde el banquillo, Hot Rod terminó la temporada promediando 8,9 puntos y 3,9 asistencias,6​ lo que le valió para ser incluido en el segundo mejor quinteto de rookies de la NBA.7​

    Viendo que tener dos jóvenes promesas en el mismo puesto podía suponer problemas, mediada la temporada 1989-90, los Knicks decidieron traspasar a Strickland a San Antonio Spurs, a cambio del veterano Maurice Cheeks,8​ que con 33 años asumiría mejor su papel de segundo base del equipo. Jugó de titular en 24 de los 31 partidos que disputó de la fase regular con los Spurs, consiguiendo el equipo un gran balance de 16 victorias y 8 derrotas en los mismos. Brilló además en los 10 partidos que disputó de los playoffs, promediando 12,3 puntos, 11,23 asistencias y 5,3 rebotes por partido.9​ El las dos siguientes temporadas se consolidaría como el base titular del equipo, con promedios que no bajaron de los 13 puntos y las 8 asistencias, a pesar de que entre ambas temporadas se perdiera casi 50 partidos por diferentes lesiones en la rodilla y en su mano derecha.

    En la temporada 1992-93, una vez finalizado su contrato con los Spurs, se convirtió en agente libre, fichando en tal condición por Portland Trail Blazers.8​ Allí permaneció durante cuatro temporadas, compartiendo el puesto de base con Terry Porter, y promediando en ellas 17 puntos y 8,6 asistencias.10​

    En una transacción que inicialmente beneficiaba a ambas franquicias, Strickland y su compañero de equipo Harvey Grant fueron traspasados a los Washington Bullets a cambio de Rasheed Wallace y Mitchell Butler en 1996.8​ En su primera temporada en la capital promedió 17,2 puntos y 8,9 asistencias, ayudando a los Bullets a alcanzar los playoffs por vez primera en 8 temporadas.


    La temporada 1997-98 fue la mejor de su carrera, tras promediar 17,8 puntos y 10,5 asistencias por partido,12​ liderando la liga en este último aspecto con una diferencia de 1,4 asistencias sobre el segundo, Jason Kidd,13​ y llegando a ser el vigésimo quinto jugador de la historia de la NBA en alcanzar los 10.000 puntos y 5.000 asistencias.14​ Aunque fue seleccionado en el segundo mejor quinteto de la NBA,10​ no fue elegido para disputar el All-Star de 1998, declarando que renunciaría al año siguiente si fuese elegido. Nunga llegó a disputar un All-Star Game. A pesar de todo ello, los Wizards, nueva denominación del equipo, no alcanzaron los playoffs.12​ Durante las siguientes dos temporadas sus números siguieron siendo muy destacados, pero el juego del equipo seguía sin convencer, acabando por rescindir el contrato de Strickland mediada la temporada 2000-01.

    Regresó el 5 de marzo de 2001 a los Blazers, firmando como agente libre.8​ A pesar de que en su debut en esta nueva etapa en Portland prometía, tras conseguir 8 puntos y 5 asistencias en los 16 minutos que disputó,14​ su puesto en el equipo fue el de tercer base, tras Damon Stoudamire y Greg Anthony, disputando poco más de 16 minutos por partido, en los que promedió 4,6 puntos y 3,4 asistencias en los 21 partidos en los que jugó.15​

    Tras finalizar su contrato con los Blazers, en la temporada 2001-02, y ya con 35 años, fichó por los Miami Heat, que necesitaban de un base veterano y solvente, volviendo a ocupar una plaza en el cinco inicial. Realizó una buena temporada, promediando 10,4 puntos y 6,1 asistencias, pero a pesar de ello no vio renovado su contrato. A partir de ese momento, en pleno declive, jugó sus tres últimas temporadas en la NBA a base de contratos temporales, haciéndolo en equipos como Minnesota Timberwolves, Orlando Magic, Toronto Raptors o Houston Rockets, donde dio por finalizada su carrera en la liga profesional norteamericana disputando 16 partidos en la temporada 2004-05. En sus 17 temporadas promedió 13,2 puntos y 7,3 asistencias, siendo uno de los 20 mejores pasadores de la historia de la NBA.1

              Фёдор_Иванович_Сухов: Что не так со Скрипалями, химическим оружием и инспекцией ОЗХО      Cache   Translate Page      
    4003916_20180913_120059 (700x525, 144Kb)
     
    В политическом плане для наших западных партнеров крайне неудобно что Скрипали сегодня живы и оба пережили попытку покушения, был удобный момент красиво вывести папу Скрипаля из игры, но никто не захотел мараться и потом отвечать перед следующей властью. А "оно само как-нибудь" без письменного приказа и гарантий работает только в дешевом кино, на котором и выросло сегодняшнее поколение западных политиков.
     
    Та же ситуация была с самолетом Эрдогана во время путча: истребитель прилетел, а приказа на сбитие Эрдогана так и не получил. В западной элите все очень плохо с исполнением решений и взятия на себя ответственности за содеянное или с конструированием талантливой подставы.
     
    В США по ТВ давно уже обьявили Скрипаля мертвым, а опровержения так и не было.
     
    В юридическом плане: это подозрение на неудавшиеся покушение на жизнь Скрипалей с возможным применением химических веществ. Эти факты в суде не установлены, официальное следствие не закончено. Комиссия ОЗХО приезжала в Лондон с визитом, а не с инспекцией. Разница: это как если участковый зашел по Вашему приглашению попить чайка, а не с ордером на обыск. А так да, заходил. ОЗХО обязано было отказаться от "визита королевской вежливости".
     
    ОЗХО, приняв стиль визита, заведомо обрекло себя на работу с необъективными данными по делу Скрипалей и фактически заранее обнулило все свои выводы. Даже если это и было химическое оружие, факт его применения не может уже быть установленным из-за отсутствия инспекции ОЗХО в Солсбери. А так да, приезжали.
     
    Инспекции ОЗХО в Солсбери не было, ну и как после этого можно серьезно обсуждать применение химического оружия? Ну а в частном и полу официальном порядке инспектора и сотрудники возможно имеют право на собственное мнение, но как только на горизонте замаячит гражданский иск от русских и через суд затребуют документы и показания, тут сразу все моментально рассосется.
     
    Почему наши британские партнеры не пустили к себе инспекцию ОЗХО? Значит есть что скрывать, помимо дела Скрипалей. Возможно они в Портон Дауне уже разработали химическое оружие следующего поколения и наладили мелкосерийный выпуск, но у них там в лаборатории завелся "борец за мир во всем мире", некий супермен. Возможно он и подает миру неуклюжие знаки. Вы удивитетесь, но таки да, у некоторых ученых совесть таки есть. Лаборатория внезапно получила еще 50 млн фунтов от правительства.
     
    Химическое оружие запрещено, но у наших американских и британских друзей этого оружия тысячи тонн на легальной основе: "оне не успели его уничтожить, им денег на это не хватило". Подозреваю что это бережно хранимое химическое оружие будет применятся для контроля собственного населения и в странах третьего мира в случае глобальной пандемии или других ситуациях когда потребуется быстро и на порядки сократить собственное население и население сопредельных стран. 
     
    Даже Гитлер не применил химического оружия против русских, не думаю что у наших западных друзей сегодня хватит глупости и отваги применить химическое оружие против тех кто может жестко ответить. Нужно ли к этому добавить, что РФ снова забежало впереди паровоза и полностью уничтожило свое химическое оружие, что официально подтверждено инспекцией ОЗХО.
     
    Вероятно РФ примет примирительно выжидательную позицию по делу Скрипалей: типа давайте не будем спешить с выводами и подождем окончания следствия по делу и суда, давайте отправим инспекцию ОЗХО в Британию итд. Ну и напоминать нашим западным друзьям, что заявления Мэй и других по ТВ не имеют юридической силы и лишь являются инструментом внутренней политической борьбы.
     
    В деле Скрипалей нет главного: жертв и установленных судом или инспекцией ОЗХО фактов. Современные политики Запада имеют роскошь делать легковесные или заведомо лживые заявления своему населению и всему миру. Они ничем не рискуют, население будет верить в то, "во что им выгодно верить, пока им суд не скажет обратное". Нюрбергский, допустим.

              La autora de «Cómo asesinar a tu marido», arrestada por asesinar a su marido      Cache   Translate Page      
    La escritora Nancy Cramton Brophy, autora de la obra «Cómo asesinar a tu marido», ha sido arrestada precisamente por asesinar a su marido, informa «The Washington Post». En aquel libro, aconsejaba sobre cómo salirse con la suya y librarse de la condena. Y es que la policía de Oregón ha arrestado a Crampton Brophy acusándola de empuñar la pistola que disparó varias veces al hombre con el que había pasado casi los últimos treinta años de su vida, el chef Dan Brophy. Tres meses después de aquel suceso, cuando parecía que todo iba a ser un misterio sin resolver, la historia ha acabado con un giro casi propio de los escritos de la autora: con su detención. La escritora estadounidense posteó en Facebook cuando la tragedia tuvo lugar: «Para mis amigos de Facebook y familiares, tengo noticias tristes. Mi esposo y mi mejor amigo, el chef Dan Brophy, fue asesinado ayer por la mañana. Para aquellos más cercanos a mí y que creen que esto se merece una llamada telefónica, tienen razón, pero estoy luchando por darle sentido a todo en este momento». La novelista de Portland escribía libros sobre turbias relaciones secretas y solían ir ilustradas con un hombre musculoso con el torso desnudo en su portada. En «The Wrong Cop» («El policía equivocado») tramaba la historia de una mujer que fantaseaba todos los días con matar a su marido. En 2011, según recoge «The Washington Post», escribió el libro de marras en el blog «See Jane Publish», en el que describió cinco motivos para cinco motivos básicos y un número de armas que eligiría para que su personaje matara a su marido en la novela romántica que esta pergeñando. En el post aconsejaba no contratar un asesino a sueldo porque «un sorprendente número de sicarios delataron a la policía» y tampoco que lo hiciera un amante («Nunca es una buena idea», al igual que el veneno que es rastreable. Así, en la vida real habría seguido sus propios consejos puesto que empuñó ella misma el arma. El asesinato desconcertó a la policía y las personas cercanas a Daniel Brophy desde el principio. Brophy, un chef de 63 años, recibió un disparo mortal en su lugar de trabajo en el Instituto Culinario de Oregón en la mañana del 2 de junio, sin que hubiera ninguna descripción del sospechoso.

              Novelist who wrote about 'How to Murder Your Husband' charged with murdering her husband      Cache   Translate Page      
    Nancy Crampton Brophy seemed to have a knack for writing about the murder of spouses. The Portland-based romance novelist authored books about relationships that were "wrong" but "never felt so right," often featuring bare-chested men on the cover. In "The Wrong Cop," she wrote about a woman who "spent every day of her marriage fantasizing about killing" her husband." In "The Wrong Husband," a woman tried to flee an abusive husband by faking her death. And in "How to Murder Your Husband" - an essay - Crampton Brophy wrote about how to get away with it. She wrote the post on the blog "See Jane Publish" in November 2011, describing five core motives and a number of murder weapons from which she would choose if her character were to kill a husband in a romance novel. She advised against hiring a hit-man to do the dirty work - "an amazing number of hit men rat you out to the police" - and against hiring a lover. "Never a good idea." Poison? Not advised either. "Who wants to hang out with a sick husband?" "After all," Crampton Brophy wrote in the post, which was made private after inquiries from The Washington Post to the site's administrators, "if the murder is supposed to set me free, I certainly don't want to spend any time in jail." In real life, she appeared to follow some of her own advice, at least according to police. Rather than hire a hit man she allegedly pulled the trigger herself. Crampton Brophy, 68, was arrested last Wednesday on charges of murdering her husband with a gun and unlawful use of a weapon in the death of her husband, Daniel Brophy, according to the Portland Police Bureau. But what has not been revealed is the alleged motive. She was arraigned Thursday, appearing in blue inmate clothing, and ordered jailed without bail, court records show. She has not yet filed a plea, and her lawyer declined to comment when contacted by The Post. The killing puzzled police and those close to Daniel Brophy from the start. Brophy, a 63-year-old chef, was fatally shot at his workplace at the Oregon Culinary Institute on the morning of June 2. Students were just beginning to file into the building for class when they found him bleeding in the kitchen, KATU2 news reported. Police had no description of the suspect. Two days later, Crampton Brophy wrote an emotional post on Facebook. "For my Facebook friends and family, I have sad news to relate," Crampton Brophy wrote. "My husband and best friend, Chef Dan Brophy was killed yesterday morning. For those of you who are close to me and feel this deserved a phone call, you are right, but I'm struggling to make sense of this right now." Brophy was a beloved chef at the Oregon Culinary Institute. Colleagues considered him the institute's "resident encyclopedia of knowledge" who had a "creative approach to teaching" and an "offbeat sense of humor,"as they wrote about him in memoriam. He sometimes made cooks who forgot their hats wear sombreros or spiky helmets instead, the Portland Tribune reported. And he liked to lead groups of students on "experimental field trips" into the forests, perpetually hunting for new ingredients. Hundreds of people came to celebrate and to mourn him at a candlelight vigil held outside the Oregon Culinary Institute on June 4. Crampton Brophy came, too. But as the weeks went on, neighbors told the Oregonian, something seemed off about Crampton Brophy. Don McConnell, her neighbor of six years, told the Oregonian that earlier this summer he had a conversation with Crampton Brophy about Brophy's death, wondering what the motive could have possibly been in the tragedy. "I said, are [the police] keeping in touch with you?" McConnell recalled asking her. "She said, 'No, I'm a suspect,'" McConnell told the Oregonian. "I thought she must have been one tough woman to handle that the way she did." On Thursday, prosecutors and Crampton Brophy's defense attorney said little as the defendant was brought before a judge to hear the charges against her. A judge took the unusual step of sealing a probable cause affidavit in Crampton Brophy's case at prosecutors' request, a spokesman for the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office told The Washington Post. Police declined to answer questions from The Post about the evidence justifying Crampton Brophy's arrest or what led police to suspect her, citing an ongoing investigation. Crampton Brophy's attorney also declined to comment. "It's a big shock. It's a big shock," Brophy's mother, Karen Brophy, told The Post of her daughter-in-law's arrest. "But we're not making any statements." The couple had been married for 27 years, according to court documents. They had a "fabulous garden" in their backyard, where chickens and turkeys also roamed, Crampton Brophy wrote on her author website, where she promoted her steamy romance paperbacks. One was titled, "The Wrong Husband," about a woman who flees an abusive husband and who falls in love with her rescuer. Crampton Brophy and her husband "had our ups and downs," she wrote on her author page, but there were "more good times than bad." She said she knew she had fallen for him one night when she was taking a bath and called out for him to join. "His answer convinced me he was Mr. Right," she wrote on her author bio. She recalled him saying, "'Yes, but I'm making hors d'oeuvres.' "Can you imagine spending the rest of your life without a man like that?" She wrote frequently about their marriage on the internet, sometimes with a dark sense of humor that her readers appeared to find amusing. In one 2011 post on "See Jane Publish" that drew laughs from readers, she wrote, "My husband and I are both on our second (and final - trust me!) marriage. We vowed, prior to saying 'I do,' that we would not end in divorce. We did not, I should note, rule out a tragic drive-by shooting or a suspicious accident." At the end of the post, she said she loved "the way he can make me laugh when I'm really angry," and "how, when I least expect it, he can say the perfect thing." "But one last word of caution," she wrote, "if I ever take a swan-dive off a high building, investigate. Investigate. Investigate." https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Novelist-who-wrote-about-How-to-Murder-Your-13222873.php
              Author Of 'How To Murder Your Husband' Arrested For Allegedly Killing Her Husband      Cache   Translate Page      

    A romantic suspense novelist who once penned an essay entitled “How To Murder Your Husband,” has been charged with killing her husband, Dan Brophy.

    Police in Portland, Oregon arrested Nancy Crampton-Brophy, 68, last Wednesday and charged her with murder and the unlawful use of a weapon. Her husband, a 63-year-old chef, was fatally shot in a kitchen at the Oregon Culinary Institute on June 2, The Oregonian reported.

    On the day after the murder, the author of the self-published novels “The Wrong Husband” and “Girl Most Likely To,” took to Facebook to express her disbelief:

    Crampton-Brophy has since made her now-famous essay “How To Murder Your Husband” private. It was published on the See Jane Publish blog and reportedly included sections on motives and possible weapons.

    In 2012, Crampton-Brophy told the Romancing the Genres blog what attracted her to romantic suspense stories.

    “Murder, mayhem and gore seem to come naturally to me which means my husband has learned to sleep with one eye open,” she told the blog. 

    According to court documents, the couple was married for 26 years

              Re: Horrible Parents      Cache   Translate Page      

    Okay I read it again. The man did not scream at the parents. I apologize for my mistake. He swore at them.

    I do, however, believe in the responsibility of all when it comes to children. I would have intervened with parents at the restaurant, I don't care about them being offended and i would not have offered to pay their bill if the left or sworn at them for their oblivion and purposeful refusal to pay attention to their children.

    We live in a society that is wholly ME based and that is why we have so many problems. People should care about other people and their existence and children are an extremely vulnerable and innocent population (they did not CHOOSE to be brought into this world). And I do not have children. I still believe we all bear a collective responsibility. An extreme example: if I saw a parent beating their child I would intervene. In fact, I have and I would again. As a teenager I heard my next door neighbor throwing his child against the wall and her screaming. I called the police.

    I have also intervened when I saw a man punching his wife, who when told by me that I thought he should stop because she was crying and I didn't think she liked it said "she's my wife and I will do whatever the fuck I want." I stepped off the train, informed the cops on the platform, and they took over from there.

    In less extremes I am talking about simply behaving decently when children are present. It's an opinion I have and it's clear that plenty of people do not agree. Oh well. That's why it's called an opinion. Children watch and learn from everyone and everything around them - that includes things like tolerance and acceptance of people different from them or racist, hateful, homophobic behavior; kindness, caring, and calmness or cruelty, apathy, and chaos; etc.

    Don't want to be around children that behave like animals because no adults in their life have ever bothered to model appropriate behavior? They're not going to disappear or magically learn how to behave unless someone, whoever that may be, intervenes.

    ALL people in general, especially so-called adults need to pull their heads out of their asses and recognize that OTHER PEOPLE EXIST. If you have no interest in behaving decently, then please move to a hut in the woods where other people don't have to interact with you. This is a society where there are basic and I mean BASIC rules of behavior that are expected of anyone participating in society.

    I love Portland. It’s a lovely city filled with plenty of great food and definitely plenty of great coffee. Almost every morning is spent at a different coffee shop.

    Matthew sent me a link to Le Pigeon. Sadly, it had no availability while I was in town. On the upside, there are two sister restaurants, one of which is Little Bird. It was not only open, it had availability. With Foie Gras on the menu, I felt like this might be a little bit upscale. I’d recommend showing up in business casual but I showed up in a button-down tee and shorts with no complaints, so it probably depends more on what you feel comfortable in.

    I ordered a cocktail to start, a muddled cherry daiquiri, which, while tasty, didn’t show up until after my opening dish arrived.

    The menu is definitely French-inspired. For the appetizer, I had the seared foie gras that was served on a mint crêpe with strawberries and marcona almonds. It was a lovely mix of flavour in every bite and in just the right proportions.

    Foie gras

    For my main, I had the open-faced corn ravioli. Imagine a flatter lasagna but with the foie beurre instead of a tomato-based sauce. Then add the crispy duck confit and corn flakes on top with a bit of the sweetness from the apricot sauce. A delicious dish that I savoured through and through. The duck confit might’ve been a bit too crispy as I felt like I do when eating a bowl of Cap’n Crunch: it tastes good but my mouth suffers a little more with every bite.

    I ordered a glass of their featured red wine, a Gigondas from Les Pallieres. It paired well enough but I wondered if there might’ve been something else that would’ve suited the meal better.

    Verdict: It was a wonderful meal and I’d definitely recommend going if you get the chance. It’s reasonably priced while not feeling too cheap or too stuffy.

    The tragedy is that no one ever gets to live in the city they fell in love with. It always changes in ways that seem, from the transplant's perspective, to be for the worse. You'll soon find this is true of Tacoma (or Portland or wherever it is you're going). Sure, a change of scenery might make you feel better for a year or two, but there's no way to escape this dynamic. In 10 years you'll hate what Tacoma has become since you arrived, even if by objective measures it's a vast improvement. In most cases (absent some imperative like a irresistible job offer) the better option is to stay where you are and do what you can to make it a better place, whatever that means to you. I don't like a lot of the recent changes in Seattle either, but I've moved enough times in my life to know the grass is VERY seldom greener elsewhere.

    Richmonders release a book about lures with some special guests.

    When John Bryan visited Rob Carter's studio in 2016, he was surprised to see hundreds of small containers containing fishing flies that Carter had tied. Each container was carefully marked with the name of the fly, hook size and the type of insect or baitfish.

    Born in Utah, Carter had grown up using his fly rod to explore the rivers and streams flowing from the canyons of the Wasatch Range, while Bryan insists he was born with the DNA to fish and couldn't recall a time he hadn't.

    An idea was born on the spot. Bryan proposed putting together an article about the collection and Carter countered, suggesting a small book. As the idea evolved, they developed the name "America's Favorite Flies" for a massive illustrated book about the favorite flies of anglers throughout North America.

    "The book is as much about the anglers as about the flies themselves," Carter explains. "It's peppered with humorous anecdotes, heartfelt musings and memories, fly fishing lore, historical and entomological facts, and instructional tips."

    Contributors include a cross section of people from all walks of life, including former President Jimmy Carter, Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard, fly-fishing matriarch Joan Wulff, rock musician Huey Lewis and author Tom McGuane. 

    The first step was preparing a questionnaire for participants to provide facts about their favorite flies and to write stories in their own handwriting about them. As friend and acquaintance to many well-known anglers, Bryan provided a short list of potential contacts. Next they scoured the internet to find names of well-known fishing guides and fly fishing professionals, finding Facebook an invaluable source. As contacts expressed interest, questionnaires were sent to them, and they in turn suggested more names.

    "We knew someone who knows Jimmy Buffet and supposedly they asked someone close to him to ask him," Bryan says. "And we received word that he wouldn't be able to participate, although we don't have any first-person evidence that he was formally asked."

    Questionnaires were sent to approximately 300 people, resulting in 224 flies and stories from all over North America. In addition, two dozen outdoor artists provided about 100 artworks for the gallery of the book. Essays were submitted by 14 key people on conservation-oriented topics

    The process of identifying and collecting content, photographing flies, designing and editing took the duo three years. They knew from the start that "America's Favorite Flies" would be a philanthropic endeavor with all proceeds going to protecting and sustaining healthy waters and fisheries, and thus a healthy environment.

    "The James River, as America's founding river, was a no-brainer," Carter says. "John and I both love the James River and its headwaters. The James River Association and the Native Fish Society represent a coast-to-coast movement symbolizing conservation efforts across the country." The Native Fish Society in Portland, Oregon, is a science-based organization that protects habitats for native fisheries — primarily native species that travel upriver to spawn — by being stewards who watch over and collect data from more than 70 rivers in the Northwest.

    The duo will do a book talk and signing at the Library of Virginia, a fitting place given that the original materials and questionnaires from the book were donated to the library. "The materials are priceless and can never be replaced, so we hoped to find a place that would care for them in perpetuity," Bryan says. "We're Virginia authors and well aware of the library, their collections and conservation practices. We're thrilled they were willing to take the materials."

    While the book is bound to appeal to fly fishers, its appeal is broader. But at its most basic level, "America's Favorite Flies" is 656 pages of stunningly delicious visuals with full page photos of each fly, pages of gorgeous work by two dozen preeminent artists and scores of photographs.

    "This is the best part. Fly fishing, if approached sensitively, is a meditation," Carter says. "In the moment one steps into a stream, focus centers on the rhythm of the water, the riffles, the dancing and skittering insects. Senses are alive and open and the catching of fish becomes only part of a more sublime ritual. Immersion into this world apart suppresses every urge to slip into the grind of everyday living. The nagging impulse to constantly check digital devices evaporates." S

    There will be a book talk with Rob Carter and John Bryan on Wednesday, Sept. 19 at noon at the Library of Virginia, 800 E. Broad St., lva.virginia.gov

    Woman who wrote 'How to Murder Your Husband' arrested for allegedly murdering her husband

    Nancy Crampton-Brophy, an Oregon-based romance author, was arrested September 5 as a suspect in the murder of her husband Daniel Brophy, according to the Portland Police Bureau
    The 68-year-old writer was being held at Multnomah County Jail on charges of murder and unlawful use of a weapon.
    Police responded to a shooting at the Oregon Culinary Institute, Brophy's place of employment, June 2. Students were just beginning to arrive when they found the 63-year-old chef bleeding in the kitchen, according to KATU2 news. Brophy died at the scene.
    His wife, Crampton-Brophy, is a self-published author of several books, including "The Wrong Husband" and "The Girl Most Likely To." She also penned a blog post entitled "How To Murder Your Husband" in November 2011. The blog has since been made private.
    In "How to Murder Your Husband," Crampton-Brophy described motives and possible murder weapons she would choose from if her character were to kill a husband in a romance novel, according to The Washington Post. She even offered advice to readers, such as not using a hitman or poison to commit the murder. 
    Her other works also dealt with murder. In "The Wrong Husband," a woman tries to leave an abusive spouse by faking her death and in "The Wrong Cop" she wrote about a woman who “spent every day of her marriage fantasizing about killing” her husband.
    Family and friends are shocked at the latest development in the case, according to The Washington Post.
    The day after her husband was fatally shot Crampton-Brophy wrote an emotional Facebook post.
    "For my facebook friends and family, I have sad news to relate. My husband and best friend, Chef Dan Brophy was killed yesterday morning," she wrote June 3. "For those of you who are close to me and feel this deserved a phone call, you are right, but I’m struggling to make sense of everything right now."
    But one of the couple's neighbors confided to The Oregonian that Crampton-Brophy seemed unconcerned when she told him the police were investigating her as a suspect in the weeks following her husband's death.
    Crampton-Brophy was arraigned in Multnomah County Court on September 6.
