Downtown P-town down?

"We sold our 500-square-foot New York apartment, and with the money, we bought a house with a swimming pool, two cars, and had enough left to open a restaurant."

Excerpted from a recent NY Times "Dining Out" expose on Portland's culinary scene. Kinda makes you reevaluate that old EC a little bit. I'm well aware that none of us kids are working with real estate in Manhattan, but bring that quote down several notches on the income ladder and it reads more like this:

"We sold our [fixed gear bike, gigantic amplifier, pedal collection, blood], and with the money, we paid our rent for a year and had enough left to eat like the king of the farmers market and go to every show ever."

I'm just sayin.

Bro Bros

No Age totally just played at my crib! We keep it gully here in Olympia, so there aren't like a million youtube vids up already, but I assure you it went down. Booking shows in this town is like taking candy from a really well dressed baby.

Silence Like the Wind

Overtook me in summer Oh 7.

It was really real in the tri-state these past couple months, but all good things must come to an end. Yesterday I cloud hopped back out to Brolympia and got on my finding a house grind. It's always sad saying goodbye to the East but sometimes it bees like that.

Bang Bang Bang

I don't know who greenlighted a serialized Killer Mike internet soapbox, but they're a fucking serious genius right about now. At first you're like "what the fuck is Killer Mike doing in front of some naked ass?" but then he asks some emo skaterz if making it rain is actually kinda gay and it's all alright.

He also, like, raps good and everything. His shit has a phone number to book him, No Age doesn't even roll that guttery smooth.
