This is Why I Love Portland

07/13/2011

A brown vehicle, surprisingly tasteful in its wildly gothic external decor, stops at a light. Amid the various brownish skulls and headstones adorning the SUV-ish car, I spot a sign saying “Thank You For Your Patience During Our Remodel,” and the active rear window wiper has been fashioned into a waving hand. Inspired by two comely girls waiting on the corner, the driver rolls down his passenger window, and out blares “Break on Through” by The Doors. Accompanying the song is a lip-synching monkey puppet, singing to the girls, who squeal and delight in this spontaneity.

This is an example of shit that happens in Portland every day, and why I adore it.


WWII Rescue of Downed B-29 Crew

04/01/2011

This is some amazing footage of a submarine crew rescuing 12 aviators as their bomber is shot down off the coast of Japan during WWII, and the veteran who sees the film for the first time 60 years later.

Thanks, Wendylady!
