The Portland Tarot Forecast

A free weekly reading for the whole city. I got the idea because sometimes I'd noticed the same card or cards showing up in different people's readings in the same few days, and I felt like I was glimpsing larger spiritual currents. I wanted to more fully examine that, and also to combine my writing flair with my divinatory reading skills. Warning: Contains mysticism

The Crapshoot Podcast, with cortex and churl

Do you enjoy amiable bullshitting? How convenient! Me and churl enjoy bullshitting amiably, and we're doing just that for about an hour every week on The Crapshoot, our brand new podcast. We'll be bringing on interesting local PDX people (and out-of-towners when we can snag them while they're in Portland) and talking about everything and nothing. Our first episode features local comedian and mefite Mark msalt Saltveit, with whom we chatter about palindromes and taoism and football and a bunch of other things.

International Waters, an interdisciplinary meta-festival of Portland culture

I run an organization here in town called Research Club. We’re in the middle of our biggest project yet — the Portland Passport Project. For the next stage, we've talked to all the amazing groups that we've worked with here in Portland and put together a calendar of their events happening between May 15 and July 21. The goal is to create a broader context where you can encounter as many different branches of Portland culture as possible. [more inside]

“We will always have been who we are.”

The ten thousand things; the one true only; the Good Neighbours, yes yes, of course: but also violence, and power, and yes genderfuck, and hearts broken cleanly (and otherwise), the city of Portland, The F--rie Queene, those moments in pop songs when the bass and all of the drums except maybe a handclap suddenly drop out of the bridge leaving you hanging from a slender aching thread of melody waiting almost dreading the moment when the beat comes back, and the occasional bit of swordplay— City of Roses is an epic urban fantasy serial zine set rather firmly in Portland, Oregon. The first eleven chapters have now been gathered together in an EPUB-formatted ebook for your handheld reading convenience. [more inside]

The Public Isolation Project

My friend Cristin Norine is spending one month living in a gallery, alone, that's in plain sight on a busy street in Portland, Or. She can't leave or have visitors, and is only communicating to others via social media. [more inside]

Research Club is a clubhouse for inquisitive people

For the past year, I've been running a little organization called Research Club here in Portland, Oregon. It started out as a monthly dinner at my house, which then turned into a monthly series of free brunches and lectures at an art gallery downtown, and has now turned into a permanent location shared with micro-cinema, Grand Detour. The official line is that Research Club is a community-supported think-tank. [more inside]
