Amon Tobin and Pitch Black, along with two opening bands, are playing at the Roseland Theatre (8 NW 6th Ave) Thursday night (starting at 9:00 pm or thereabouts). Tickets are $26 (available online at TicketsWest). The music is best described as sampled electronica (Amon Tobin) and Kiwi-style dub (Pitch Black). I'd expect a late night of electronic music: an evening nap may be in order! Jeremy's already got his ticket and can fill you in with more, including a sample of the music.

Roots Brewery has a $2.50 imperial pint night. The beer is great! It's on the eastside but it's not very far. There are carts and more beer nearby.

The Glimmer model output gives suggestions for illicit afterhours activities in Portland. I suggest looking in the North park blocks.

Quiet night. Kristin ate a Whole Foods Meal Pod in her room and Toby went for pho by himself. Good work!

We attempted to make an expedition to the movie theater last Tuesday but I forgot my ID (:D). Tonight, we will make another try... So let's meet at the hotel at 6:30 pm. Don't forget to bring your ID!!!!!

Freedom Riders is a mountain bike documentary about the evolution of freeriding near Jackson Hole, WY (I think). The show is at the Clinton St. Theater. It starts at 7 pm.

Summary of the evening:

  • Star Trek discussion / planning of future paper about the Red Black Hole
  • Four people from Seattle get touch-and-go jello shots
  • Kristin tries to order Munster cheese at the Portland Timbers bar HQ. The retort: "This is a sportsbar, sweetheart, we have cheddar or swiss."
  • Gethin is a pool shark, but it's Doug who holds his own against the expert-shooting hipster who usurped our table
  • None of us is a shuffleboard shark
  • Todd has the best time of all - measured with N_{drinks} data and a degree-of-swaying interpolation scheme - and has not showed up at the workshop this morning

Friday and Saturday

The Thing at Fifth Avenue Cinema. Showtimes: FRI. / SAT. - 7:00 P.M. & 9:30 P.M SUN. - 3:00 P.M.

50c beer all night long


For the end...

CEILING POPCORN!!!!! Did you check your bedroom ceiling? Do you want to take a bubble bath?
