You're a Good Man, Casey Jarman

As the former WW Music Editor leaves town, we remember some of his finest work.


Casey Jarman is gone. We will not let him be forgotten.Wait, that sounds a bit misleading. To clarify: He isn't dead. He just moved to San Francisco, where he will serve as managing editor for his self-professed "favorite magazine," the McSweeney's-owned monthly The Believer. For four years, Casey was Willamette Week's music editor and—if the Post-It note on the soda machine warning of expired ...   More

The It List: The Top 10 Things in Portland and the World


Each week our culture scientists rank their 10 favorite things in the universe. The resulting list is infallible. The list is perfect. If you don't agree with the list, you are wrong. Some items may stay atop the list for weeks, others may only make a brief appearance. Some items are Portland-centric, but only because Portland is at the center of the universe. Please do not write to us, asking ...   More

Crapshoot! (Vol. 2, Issue 3)

I'm obsessed by this song. I want to curl up and live in this song. It was on a Nuggets compilation somewhere that wound up playing in the office, probably six months ago. I keep coming back to it. The disc, Heron's ...   More

Crapshoot! (Vol. 2, Issue 1)

Hi, Casey Jarman—WW's music editor and resident comics/videogames nerd—here. I've decided to re-launch my short-lived old column, "Casey Jarman's Crapshoot Starring Casey Jarman." I've lost a couple of the unnecessary "Casey Jarmans" in the title, to seem a bit less arrogant. I also won't be starting this re-launched version with a reference to Genesis (the band or the bible). Instead, ...   More

Casey Jarman For Blazers General Manager

Remember when Casey Jarman, WW music editor and Blazers blogger extraordinaire, wrote last month about some of the big men who Portland could acquire. The always-modest Casey included Chicago's Tyrus Thomas, writing that the only "downside" was "I'm the only person in the world who thinks this is a good idea." Turns out Casey wasn't. Here's what else the prescient Casey had to say about Thomas ...   More
