I’m back at work and I can see the aftermath of the Soundgarden and Pharrell concert down there, but I have yet to find anyone who actually took a photo of THE CROWD. Wtf.
This is the exact moment I fell in love with Breaking Bad.
This scene man
yeah that plate is broken pretty bad
This is why I decided to work from home today. A co-worker just took this from our view from work. There’s a free concert down there today with Soundgarden and Pharrell before the kickoff with the Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers.
They’re expecting 200,000 people. As much as I’d like to see it, I didn’t want to deal with parking and traffic. This vantage point is much better.
I’ve extended my stay. Don’t send a search party.
Oooooh. I like this.
Where is this?
I want to see it! :)
Downtown Portland on 10th Ave. between Stark and Washington. Right around the corner from my sister’s shop and the Ace Hotel. It’s incredible. SO much better in person. :)
Dog Loves Water video
For a second there, I’m airborne with him. Watch the videos at the link. They’re the best part.
Thank you for the reminder. Needed to read this. (via dream-on-darling)

Re-identification of Viking corpses has revealed that half of their warriors were female.
"Researchers at the University of Western Australia decided to revamp the way they studied Viking remains. Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. (Female remains were identified by their oval brooches, and not much else.) By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons.”
Women have always fought. We have always been there, ‘contributing to history’. Our own, modern sexism contributes to the erasure of it.

It’s been a SciFi sort of weekend. We’ve watched ‘Divergent’, ‘Ender’s Game’, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, and ‘Noah’.
By the way. Never leaving Portland. Glad I brought my cat.
