From Leigh Feldman:

Portland Weekend EventsThings I'm currently jocking…

Free music ish… this mix from local record collector and selector DJ Roane. It's his Cancer mix for all the people that just finished celebrating their birthdays. Enjoy!  zshare.net/download/628

The ridiculousness that is our city!! Last weekend was incredible and it seems that PDX keeps rolling. Some amazing examples of amazing things that amazing people in this town are doing… Minh Tran's video of PDX Night Scenes (minhternet.com), Dead Letter and The Watershed's profile in the Portland Tribune (grab a copy at most newspaper stands), PDX 'hip-pop' artist Illaj's new video filmed at Rontoms (youtube.com), the continuation of PDX musicians being mentioned in magazines, Kenny Fresh's influential blog Freshselects.net, the possibility of a VH1/MTV reality show based in our city (?!?!) and MSNBC's article on how wonderful Portland is despite all the not so wonderful things happening in the job market (www.msnbc.msn.com).

Life is a party (even if you are unemployed), everyone is just waiting to be invited.

See you all out and about! Leigh Feldman
