"Everything On The Outside" is one of my favorite pieces by Oregon artist Brad Adkins. I'm not familiar with The High Desert Journal but the work is featured on the cover.

Anyone know a sous chef who wants to move to Portland? From Naomi Pomeroi:
"Friends. Please spread the word far and wide and to the very best of the best. Beast needs a sous-chef. I need a sous chef. Someone will come that is perfect (I know!). We just got our beard award and we are busy and super excited to play. Bring me the peeps!!"

I'm at brother's house. Mom is visiting. He put on the netflix and started playing Bridget Jones Diary. Oh. God. Make. It. Stop.

you kind of knew comedy central and jon stewart wanted to have either a woman or a minority take over the colbert slot so its not too much of a surprise that senior black correspondent larry wilmore got the nod. i thought perhaps they might go with john hodgman but among the daily show stable id say this is a pretty solid selection. still unfortunate about that the john oliver timing as he was best suited for the job.

ive got four days to download nearly any movie. what should i get? please read my mind to find out what ive seen or should resee and for the love of god dont bore me.

anybody that had the first week of may in the raffle for the time when i would indelibly stain my idiotically purchased off white sofa... you win. come pick up your prize, an indelibly stained off white sofa at your earliest convenience.

questions to Stella and Judd one word, yeast

whole food giveth and whole foods taketh away. today it was giveth and im not talking about the free sample of yogurt with chia seeds which tasted like soggy granola. locked my bike up out front again to one of those circular racks the city occasionally sees fit to install and when i came out after about 20 minutes i realized i had locked the front wheel to the frame but somehowi did not feed it through the rack. it was just leaning against it for anyone to walk away with albeit with a hefty lock that might have taken some effort to undo. actually the lock is worth about as much as the bike. needless to say i would have been more than a little crestfallen had it been gone and i never would have known i was mostly to blame.
