Go ahead and mock my Reynolds-Wrap-hat mentality, but I think there may be a government agency working against the interests of legitimate cannabis research.

Is it a conspiracy? Ha ha, no, it’s just the Drug Enforcement Administration, doing what they do best: getting in the way and slowing things down like three drunk frat bros on an escalator at 2 am—an exasperating situation filled with slow people making bad choices.

As we’ve covered here, the feds require … Read More

The Zombies
The Zombies

When Odessey and Oracle, the second album by UK pop group The Zombies, was released in 1968, it barely made a dent commercially. And a year later, when “Time of the Season,” the fourth single taken from the record, became a worldwide hit, the band had already broken up, with its members moving on to other projects.

But as its reputation has grown over the past five decades, and the nostalgia economy has risen along with it, the … Read More

A lot of us have the feeling that there’s something wrong with our country. And also that the wrongness runs deeper than our elected officials. How could anyone make a single play about that? You can’t. So instead, Asher Harman and the Gawdafful National Theater are creating a six-part play/gallery installation/livestream called The Dope Elf.

My best advice for navigating The Dope Elf is as follows: 1) Keep your eyes on Hartman. He introduces himself before the … Read More

Revisiting SharePoint for BE Tables

Best Microsoft Access Programmer Portland OR

A few weeks ago I asked about storing my back end tables on a shared network drive or SharePoint. Here’s a link to my previous post. The general consensus was that storing the tables over the network drive would be better. We had a spare desktop computer, so I setup my BE on there and set the permissions on the folder where the DB is so anyone can access it (although they’d never be able to find it).

Everything works fine for my local

So you saw Portland Attempt at Barbecue Restaurant No. 136 close and thought to yourself “You know what would work there? A SPORTS BAR.” Are you thick? Did you don’t just see On Deck sell its second location. Did you not see that location become a lightly-screened sports-themed bar? Did you not see the Pearl Tavern and its college QB owner fail and get replaced by a relatively screenless brewery? Did you not see Century basically ditch the sports theme for movies … Read More
