Daily Stank Image Bank: Metro-Fi + MSN + Newt Gingrich = BFF?

Last night, between wiping away the Seahawk tears, I was able to again get on Metrofi/Metro-Fi at the Thirsty Lion. While looking at the PDX PIPELINE and other sites, I was thrown a series of pop-ups, blinking ads, and banners very similar to Myspace, except a little more… Well, let's take a peak.

portland's mississippi studios vs the state of oregon

Tri-met Riding Etiquette (Tri-Metiquette): #3 – The Seat Next To You, What's More Deserving: Your Bag or A Human Being?

Tri-Metiquette #3 is a tricky subject. Obviously, non-verbal communication happens when someone places their bag / stuff / dog (I've seen it!) on the seat next to them. However, what kind of non-verbal communication is going on here? I believe it's different for every individual. Let me explain

Albina Community Bank: "extend opportunity to the under-served wherever the need exists"

I've been using Albina Community Bank for a year or more after leaving the bad, inattentive, non-community-based, and slow (in my opinion) service of Washington Mutual. Besides the fact that I have never waited more than a couple minutes at this bank (all locations), they really support Portland. I mainly used the Sandy branch, but […]
