The second hottest thing in these […]

Ohhh.. Mother’s Day is a tricky one. Somehow we always leave it to the morning of to get mom something. So, save yourself this year (because let’s face it, you will probably be a tad hungover on Sunday) and buy something before Mother’s Day. Which is this Sunday. […]
4.6 billion years ago, a grouping of divine and organic elements, remnants of a kaboom, clustered and collaborated into a stronghold formation, to form a little spinning sphere, held precisely in orbit, courtesy of a big burning ball of gas.

This week is a mix of some throw backs, some recent stuff, and a few from San Diego that I found while doing some exploring there.
About two years ago, friends from Sydney asked if I would host a group of guys coming through Portland. I of course opened my home/E+E HQ to them and played film assistant for the day at the Annual Naked Bike Ride. These two Aussie were filming for a series called Unplanned America. About a year later, […]
Greetings Earthlings! If that is your real species. I hope you all had a terrific Earth Day yesterday, filled with grounding and humbling epiphanies that assisted in reminding you, that you are a part of something bigger than yourselves. I never quite understood why people get days off celebrating personages such as Columbus, yet Earth […]

By now, we already know how talented our local fashion designers are. Portland has been home to more Project Runway winners than LA & New York. But the plus size industry never gets any love. That is, until we met Claire Doody. This fiery chick gets it and is running with her new “feminine warrior, […]
“Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?” Hopefully this line resonates familiarity.

What […]

This past weekend, an event known as Sticker Nerds 3 happened. Blood sweat and tears went into the making of these stickers and the volume of hand drawn stuff is impressive mostly because the large amount of demand from the artists did not effect the quality of what was produced. It looked like it was […]
What is not to learn is nothing at all. What is not to do simply cannot be done. Some girls just really, really, want to have fun. The umbrella of philosophy, made of the fabrics of the examined life, covers all of us from the drops of the unknown, drooping down permanently from the unrelenting […]
