  1. Greatest British/UK Rock Band of All Time?

    Poll working now....
  2. For me, Zepplin is probably wins the title. I realized after creating this list that I would put more British/UK bands towards the top of my all time favorites vs. America....
  3. Greatest American Rock Band

    Among my alltime favorites - Pearl Jam, R.E.M., Replacements, Nirvana, Pavement,....
  4. Greatest American Rock Band

  5. What Housing Bubble?

    I live out in the Bethany area and I am not seeing the slowdown in Portland market you are. Houses are still moving within a month or two unless they are just ridiculously overpriced.

  10. Passing Gas

    How does this apply when you are in the office, especially if you are in cubeland like me? Let 'em fly, or hold 'em till you're in the can? Let's just say you can get a whole new respect for your VP when we comes in the bathroom and cranks one...
  11. what are u listening to?

    Great station. Wish Portland has a good an indie station as Seattle's KEXP. iPod spinning new Arcade Fire, Modest Mouse, and Midlake.
  12. Literary References...

    How about the fat guy that explodes in Monty Python's "The Meaning of Life" after he eats the final dinner mint. http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=htt...%3Doff%26sa%3DN Fat Bastard from Austin Powers. http://www.film.gen.tr/resim/filmler/austi...mber/resim3.jpg
  13. Are your kids (or you) Jammin

    My brother-in-law got Guitar Hero 2 over Christmas and I played for about a day straight. Fun game. Totally addictive also.
  14. Any Skiers on board?

    Live in Portland and often hit Mt. Hood. Have not yet been to Bachelor. Is it significantly better than Hood? Next month headed up to Whistler. For those that have not been to Whistler, I highly recommend it. Best skiing I've experienced in North America.
  15. Children of Men

    I really liked this flick, but the wife hated it. Nonetheless, it was still a bit different than I thought it would be. I was expecting more in terms of solid dialogue, etc., but it was really much more action oriented than I suspected. Nonetheless, I recommend it, but just don't go in thinking it is a Perfect 10.
