Geek Love: Ignite Portland 4


News
Ignite Portland 4, which took place last night, Thursday, November 14, is a free event, but nonetheless you need a ticket to get in. I had nearly forgotten mine, and so was pushing hard against the 6:15 deadline, at which point they were going to give my ticket away to the hundred-thick throng of hopefuls waiting at the door of the Bagdad Theater. As it turns out, all 550 available tickets had ...   More

The Book Baby (and impending death by girl-mob).


News
This—and by "this" I mean the press release I've pasted below—is the only thing that has paused our office's ongoing, day-long conversation about Twilight and the very real possibility that we may be trampled to death by howling, lustful, bite-craving teenaged girls this evening at Portland's only sneak peek screening of the film: On Friday, October 3, 2008, Audrey DeKam of Albany, ...   More

And One More Makes a Soccer Team!


News
There has been a lot of media talk recently about families with inordinate numbers of children. And that's a personal choice. If you can properly care for 18 kids, Mr. and Mrs. Duggar in Arkansas , who am I to judge? But it does seem that some couples are incapable of handling large amounts of children traipsing through the house on a daily basis. Last week a Salem couple got in a lot of trouble ...   More

Portland's 5-Year-Old Chef Makes Radio/Web Big Time.


News
Locals have been buzzing about Julian Kreusser's excellent TV program Big Kitchen With Food since last summer. At an age when I was still savoring the fine taste of Play-Doh, this five-year-old foodie launched his own cooking show (with the help of his parents and baby sister) on Portland Community Media. It's awesome. That's really the only word for it. But the local homeschooler's hit the ...   More

Get Your Broke Ass to the Zoo!


News
Being broke sucks. However, it does give one more impetus for seeking out free stuff. Our most recent find for the financially challenged is free admission to the Oregon Zoo on Monday, Jan. 19, in honor of MLK Day. Just when you were wondering what to do with the kids on their day off, take ‘em to see the baby elephant and swear that you will throw them in the lion exhibit if they misbehave. ...   More
