The Pacific Northwest Seafood Cookbook is for Dummies and Geniuses
by Leilani Polk

Despite having lived in two coastal cities where seafood was fresh and bountiful, I never really learned how to cook it. General intimidation, a bigger shopping expense for (what seemed to me) an unpredictable outcome, laziness… it just felt easier to enjoy seafood at a restaurant. Leave it to the pros.

The Pacific Northwest Seafood Cookbook is made for folks like me, though experienced seafood makers will likely find much to bookmark for later feasting. It’s written by Naomi Tomky, … Read More

Portland’s Best New Ceviche Is Being Served from a Grey Food Truck on Southeast Belmont
by Andrea Damewood

In a gravel lot, across from The Vern, Rafael Luis Garcia is quietly turning out some of the most exciting Peruvian food in Portland.

A native of Trujillo, Peru, a coastal city in the country’s northwest, Garcia spent 19 years managing McDonald’s restaurants in Utah and Portland before making the leap to owning his own truck. Salt & Pepper (not affiliated with the restaurant on SE Powell with the same name) boasts a massive menu, although Garcia rotates the availability … Read More

In The Expanse’s Great Fourth Season, Humanity Explores a New Frontier—But Still Has All Its Old Baggage
To the stargate! And step on it!

by Erik Henriksen

“They made their own clouds,” a man from Earth says in the fourth season of The Expanse, as he looks down at a terraformed Mars. “Brings to mind the people who built the great Gothic cathedrals. Knowing they’d be long dead before their work was finished, trusting their great-grandchildren would lay the final stones. We’ve lost that kind of generational thinking on Earth. Here, you see it in everything they do.”

It’s … Read More

A wistful, good-hearted look at a lost part of movie history.

by Robert Ham

As members of a nomadic military family in the ’80s, one of the first things my parents did when arriving in a new location was to sign up for a membership at the nearest video store. It was their small way of planting a flag in their new community, of feeling like part of the neighborhood. I did the same thing when I moved to Portland 22 years ago: … Read More

by Wm. Steven Humphrey

Here’s an email I recently received in response to a “Food News Roundup” I wrote on the Mercury website, from a person named “Rhonda” (who’s apparently quite proud she’s never heard of me): “Just thought I’d check out your article, never have heard of you, but interested in the restaurants coming and going. [You’ve probably figured out that I’ve left the grammar of this email intact.—Steve] It was informative and pleasant until the chick filet part. Then your true, … Read More

John Waters Interview: Mr. Know-It-All Talks Tarnished Wisdom and Why He Stopped Making Films
Your favorite filthy father X-mas returns!

by Robert Ham

{{image:1, align:right, width:250}}

John Waters doesn’t plan on making a movie any time soon, even if it’s been 15 years since his last feature, 2004’s A Dirty Shame. If the stories the 73-year-old cult filmmaker recounts in his latest book Mr. Know-It-All: The Tarnished Wisdom of a Filth Elder are to be believed, Waters was fine with giving up negotiations with studios and producers.

While the back half of Waters’ memoir imparts that … Read More

Best Microsoft Access Programmer Portland OR

by Josh Jardine

As 2019 draws to a close, let’s review WTF just happened, because this year was akin to consuming too many strong edibles, followed by multiple shots of very expensive tequila.

The cannabis industry had a tough year, losing money for investors and, as a result, thousands of industry-related jobs. This occurred with breathtaking speed for numerous brands, including Oregon’s Cura Partners, maker of the Select brand of products.

In May, MJ Business Daily reported that Curaleaf had agreed to acquire … Read More

Basically I’ve chased that dragon for almost 10 years.
I’m lucky, that I have stayed outta trouble during this time.
Get out of my house, stay the fuck away from me all you leaches.
I can’t stand any of you including me. I want to like me again,

Fish on losers.
