OTOH, Portland has one of the best bicycle/pedestrian infrastructures in the country - Pitts can only do so much with those freaking mtns (signed PO'd when visiting Pitts and am rather regulated to trails along the river).

I haven't spent too much time in Pittsberg but my short time there I can say its pretty much not Portland. And I know Portland.. Too well. We have a shitty relationship ever since I dumped her, said fuck you and moved to Minnesota. lol Actually, now that I think of it, Minneapolis is more like Portland really, even if it pains me to say that its kinda true.

Blue is the new Pink...Grey is the new black...hahah

Maybe Pittsburgh is like what Portland was 10 years ago...not the new Portlandia Portland, which has been ruined by yuppies and hipsters and money from somewhere...what happened to the grimy working class port city with dirty diners...maybe thats how pits is like pdx now...but the today show probably ruined in.....coming next Pittsburghlandia!

Portland used to be the West Coast working class port town, it's just recently become "hip" It still is a very large port city with shipments of grain leaving the busiest grain terminal on the west coast bound for china and russia...everytime a grain shipment doesn't leave Portland a hipster should shed a tear

Fat is the new skinny, dumb is the new smart, and drunk is the new sober.
No, fuck the west coast cities. The only reason I tolerate them is that the weather is comparatively passable in the winter. East Coast, you are talking an older culture, more history, older buildings, less tweakers, actual alleys (ever noticed Portland has no alleys for the most part), more genuine people, yeah I could go on

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$35.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

It takes forever to do profiles via smartphone.. I'll fill this out on a laptop later.. me and my wife, Straps, recently moved from NC to central Ohio and are looking for like minded folks. Oldschool punk and metal etc is our tastes but not limited to. She does Vocals as well as I.. I also play bass. And am currently working on a demo. Think serial killer true crime punk.. not 'horror punk'.. true horror, yes.
