Record Review: Blossom, Maybe

Best Microsoft Access Programmer Portland OR

Blossom’s chill, soul-derived delivery allows space for Neill Von Tally’s instrument-heavy production to shine.

by Jenni Moore

When I say Blossom’s sophomore album Maybe is dreamy, I mean it literally. If this project were, say, a cannabis plant, it’d definitely be a heavy indica: a downer (in a good way), and more relaxing than energizing. The whole project has a late-night/early-morning vibe. As someone who’s made a habit of listening to records ever-so-softly on loop while I sleep, I can attest that MaybeRead More

Portland’s Team Dresch Is Reclaiming Their Role As a Kickass Beacon of Hope for the LGBTQ Community

Best Microsoft Access Programmer Portland OR

Team Dresch is all the way back.

by Ben Salmon

Team Dresch is back. Really.

Not “sort of back” or “sometimes back,” which are fair ways to describe the Portland-based queercore band’s off-and-on status over the past 15 years. No, Team Dresch is all the way back, just as they were in the ’90s: writing and recording songs, playing blistering shows, speaking truth to power, and generally being a kickass beacon of hope for queer, nonbinary, and otherwise marginalized punks everywhere. (And for … Read More

I, Anonymous: Sorry I Was Tripping Balls on the Nude Beach

Best Microsoft Access Programmer Portland OR

“Since I was on a nude beach, I just went with it.”

by Anonymous

To the girls on Sauvie Island: I’m the guy that perhaps set up my spot too close to you guys. I didn’t mean to make you uncomfortable, but I’m pretty sure I did. I was trying to avoid looking at everyone, but you two are attractive, and I glanced a few times. My intention was to slowly drink my magical tea and walk down the nude beach, past the … Read More

The Portland Horror Film Fest Returns with Killer Emojis and Exploding Brains

Best Microsoft Access Programmer Portland OR

by Ciara Dolan

The horror genre is dominated by clichés: abandoned houses, flickering lights, creaking floorboards, jump scares, cell phones with no reception, cars that won’t start, invincible killers, ghost children, and final girls. Many of the movies included in this year’s Portland Horror Film Festival either completely invert these tropes or use them as stepping stones to much darker corners of the human psyche.

Only half of the festival’s six feature films were screened for critics, but the best of that bunch … Read More
