A friend of mine who I haven't seen in probably 2 years (jeff spiteri? anyone?) told me bout this forum a while back, and I've been reading threads off and on for the past several months... lots of good shit I must say. finally made an account... first post! woo!!.... uhh.... anywho... ill be arriving in portland (cliché, I know, right?) monday the 7th by way of train... not hopped unfortunately, as I have yet to do that.
anywho... what draws me to portland is the electronic music scene, which, from my understanding, is blossoming. Plan at the moment is to try and start some sort of new industrial/experimental/DnB/dubstep/ambient/glitch/breakcore/downtempo/grime project... some shit along those lines... Bringing all my gear (software shit and analog hardware) and everything so hopefully I can connect with some like minded artists and create kind of a live dub soundsystem type of rig... hybridize electronics with live instrumentation n shit... In a few months though, depending upon how all that goes, ill probably end up putting most of my shit in storage and begin hitching/squatting my way south to follow the heat...
But as I was saying, if any of you fine people happen to be in/around portland and could maybe show me around or something, or happen to know people who might be down to collaborate musically, let me know. cause as of right now I have no fucking clue what Im doing when I show up haha

aw no shit you know him? last I heard from Jeff he said he was working on some farm collective in socal that provides housing/food or some shit which sounded dope.
But yea anywho Im at the Hawthorne hostel for 2 nights n I met this street chap who everyone apparently calls "boston" or "handsome jack mackeral" ahaha but yea hes funny as fuck and has got some serious wit haha. I watched his pack whilst he skated to some pizzeria somebody tipped him off on n he scored us some slices from the dumpster that I microwaved. gave him an extra bandanna I had cause his was phantom (you know, like amputee limbs?) haha... mid september we may catch out from corvallis I think he said

Seconding the voodoo donuts and Satyricon. I saw the Casualties (with Rum Rebellion, Hammered Grunts, Mouth Sewn Shut and Crum Bums) there the other day. I forgot how much I love that joint.

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
$100.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    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
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    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
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    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
    $100.00 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.

So, here's something great! After finally saying NO to eating carbs and sugar this morning (since that's mostly all there is to eat at home) and instead bought and ate vegetables, I actually don't have cravings anymore!

All I've eaten today is two sweet potatoes and some broccoli, and I don't have any food cravings, and I'm not lethargic!
