So there's a lot of bad dancing??

Heh. Sorry. This lame azz show "The Singing Bee" was on TV while I was running, and it's on CMT. I'm not sure if that is a contributing factor, but that show is a festival of bad white people dancing. Their complete lack of riddum or coordination almost catapulted me off the treadmill.

I am sitting on the back porch with my girlfriend. It is raining lightly so it feels great outside. I have been trying to improve my sig quality all night. I have learned a lot today!

I loved living in the Rose City and still know some good people out there.

Was gonna watch The Goods tonight but forgot to bring it to work and it doesn't seem like there are many good movies I haven't seen on Netflix.

Unless you lived there before the takeover, its hard to comprehend because the perception most people have of Portland is white bread at best; hippies and stuff. And yes that would mean a lot of bad dancing. I'm not sure if Billy Reed's opened back up, I knew some people trying to get that location.

IDK what Billy Reed's is, but my brother's stories of smug hippies have made us both ROFL.

He kind of is one, being a part-time tech support guy and full time musician, pursuing his doctorate in ethnomusicology, and was vegan for years upon years. His tales of hippy talk in the health food store (no not Whole Foods, that would be way too mainstream) and the Alternative Healing supplement to the Oregonian that comes out periodically, are sidesplittingly funny. He also has been to Burning Man many times. I think that gets you hippy points.

I have to go out there so we can get high together and walk around busting on smug hippies. He once illustrated Pacific NW talk like this:

"I wanted to go to the Ta Ki Te Na workshop, but it's hella spendy."

"$10 on the sidewalk! Groundscore!"

"Would you like a sack for that?" (There are no bags in Oregon).

"a couplethree"

"I gotta put some gas in my rig" apparently it doesn't have to be an 18 wheeler to be a rig.

And of course, the jo-jos that I'm so jealous of Spoken and Hex for having ready access to.

Remember when MLK was considered the hood? Yeah, that doesn't exist anymore. I've been here my whole life pretty much.

Swp, theat pretty much takes care of the SE side of town, at least when I was living there. LMAO...

Spoken, I do remember that, in fact the part of Killingsworth I was living on was too considered the 'hood. I also remeber the 'projects' over in North which they tore down. Do they still have the corner on MLK where the Blazers Boys and Girls club is named after Officer Jackson? I had a few run ins with him.

Yeah the Boys and Girls club is still there, and the police station is still right next to it. The shops right next to the station are still african too except for 2 of em.

And they took away blimpies...
