Epicly Later'd—Pat Duffy, Episodes 1-3

There are so many good episodes of Epicly Later'd, but the most recent with Pat Duffy is a shining example of every single reason that skateboarding is the best thing on the planet.

Be sure and watch all three.

paranoid android.

I realize that this may come across as grim, conspiracy theorist, crazy talk. But I was recently informed that the U.S. Joint Forces Command is currently performing an emergency management exercise here in Portland, epically titled "Noble Resolve". And this is freaking some people out. Maybe for good reason?

Haven't any U.S. officials seen the cinematic gem Wargames (starring the youthful and captivating Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy)? I mean, Christ. It's one of AFI's top 100 sci-fi movies of all time! Did that film teach us nothing?

Jokes aside, I actual felt slightly threatened upon gathering this information. Maybe I'm crazy! I have no fully formed opinions, but I do have a lot of questions and an open mind. I'm trying not to think about it too hard, but it has made me uncomfortable enough that I thought I should at least mention the matter in the blogosphere.

If this all leaves you feeling a bit too heavy, icky and full of doom and gloom on a beautiful Wednesday afternoon, might I suggest watching the following videos? I find that kitties, Michael Cera, and nonsensical rap performances are all quite spirit lifting if the need should arise!

Business Socks

I think I have a new favorite band.
Being from Utah I call dark socks church socks,
but now I know they are BUSINESS SOCKS.

Donkey Punch

If the gods of movie booking are listening, I'd like to offer a prayer up in hopes that King of Kong plays somewhere near me.

purple and brown

new to me...

Homeboy, throw in the towel.
Your girl got dicked by Ricky Powell.

So last night, while meandering downtown after work in search of art and beer and lovely people, I wandered into Portland's Upper Playground where I happened to meet a charming young fellow by the name of Ricky Powell.

Maybe you've heard of him!

Slightly legendary street and hip-hop photographer?
The designated "fourth Beastie Boy"?

While Rappin' with the Rickster I learned that he's got a firm handshake, a lovely smile, a captivating demeanor and an appreciation of the all-you-can-eat buffet.

Oh word!
