The Latest in Portland Hip-Hop
Catching up with Mic Capes.

by Jenni Moore

Although Mic Capes’ forthcoming Cold Blooded: Volume One is 11 tracks long—enough to consider it an album—the rapper’s not quite sure if it’s truly an LP.

“I don’t know what to call it—an album, an EP, project. People say it’s an album because it’s 11 songs,” Capes says, “but I look at albums like something with a main theme. And this is not that.”

Recorded with Zeb at Momentum Studios, the North Portland MC says … Read More

Savage Love
Hard feelings.

by Dan Savage

I keep running into the same issue with my best friend of five years. (She’s also my maid of honor at my upcoming wedding.) We’re both empaths—most of my friends are—and we’re both in therapy working on how to cope with that. I have severe anxiety that impacts my physical health, so one of the empath-related issues I’m working on is not following through with plans when I need to take time alone. My friend claims she understands this Read More

Portland’s Pretty: One Imaginary Girl at Hoxton for Design Week
by Marissa Sullivan

I can’t remember the first time I saw Sarah Donofrio, the brains behind One Imaginary Girl’s fashion label. But it was probably 2016 and most likely on the runway at Fade to Light. I remember it being a show-stopper and by far my favorite designer of the night. Once I got a look at her credentials, it was no surprise why I was floored by her work. This person had put in her dues. Before starting her own womenswear label, Donofrio … Read More

It’s that time of year when the sunny days have cautiously begun to outnumber the gloomy ones and the lines for Salt & Straw begin to make a little more sense. In Portland, that can only mean one thing: Protest season is coming.

Recent Portland summers have been marked by protests that appear to serve only as an excuse for two opposing organizations to publicly throw insults and punches.

Here’s how they usually play out: Members of the Vancouver, … Read More

Portland’s Police Oversight System Seems to Be Working. Why Does the Mayor Disagree?

Best Microsoft Access Programmer Portland OR

by Alex Zielinski

On May 16, a small audience witnessed an act rarely seen on the public stage: A police officer was held accountable for doing something wrong.

For the first time in Portland history, city commissioners overturned a police chief’s decision and voted to uphold a citizen’s allegation that an officer violated Portland Police Bureau (PPB) policy. The majority council vote means that the PPB must discipline the accused officer, even if Chief Danielle Outlaw doesn’t think it’s warranted.

“It’s a historic … Read More

by Donald Henderson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP)—Despite being the 24th Democratic candidate to enter the race for the coming 2020 presidential election, Another White Guy has announced he is throwing his hat into the ring.

And he may be right—only two hours after announcing his candidacy, Another White Guy has … Read More

That’s a long way from how Martine felt in … Read More
