Young Fashion Heroes

Here's a fun site where you can see what the kids are wearing at Trader Joes, Whole Earth Market, and other locales in Portland and "beyond". It reminds me of a time when I cared... Click here!

Too much for Gus

Well-known filmmaker Gus Van Sant, who has made many of his sometimes controversial films in Portland and is a local resident, has been arrested on charges of driving while under the influence of intoxicants, according to Portland police.
The arrest took place in Portland around 4 a.m. Thursday, according to Portland police spokesman Sergeant Brian Schmautz.
Many of his films were made in Portland and he is currently making "Paranoid Park" in and around the city.

Cai Guo-Qiang

Cai Guo Qiang is an interesting International art star, who made built his career by utilizing gunpowder as his preferred medium. As you can see he has branched out and is making equally compelling work. I still like his work that involves big explosions or the traces of such explosions. Check out his other works in the link in his name.

Not to be outdone...

A Chinese restaurant owner thought it would be fun to give his employees funny haircuts, so that they would attract customers. I'm sure his employees really loved this one...

New Chinese X-Mas Custom

Someone told these people that a great way to decorate for Christmas is to give your toliet some holiday cheer... (actually this is a toilet decorating contest in China not exclusive to Christmas)
