I went to see Strength
play last night at the Tonic Lounge. It was a great show, not as crowded as the last one, but a lot of fun. They're playing tonight at Nocturnal, openning for The Thermals, so that should be fun. If you're in Portland tonight, you should check them out.
Before the show, I went to my first meeting at Disjecta
. It was very, very stressful to sit in that gallery and listen to people talk. I'm tentatively the Director of Operations for the "New Disjecta," which will probably be in the Park Blocks (or not, depending on a variety of factors). The highlight of the three hour meeting for me was meeting Jo Ann Kemmis, who was the Director of Operations for the Modern Zoo
. She is genuinely nice, and not all about trying to sound smart and impress people. Anyway, this job (although it ill be an unpaid position for quite a while) will be a great opportunity for me to learn how to financially manage a non-profit organization. Those are the skills that pay the bills. Here's a recent article from The Oregonian about The Move
Before that, I went to the Lloyd Center Mall, despite all of the recent hullabaloo
there. Katy, Marian, Chris, and I saw Napolean Dynamite, then went to Stanford's, a place kind of like all other places that serve food and booze next door to the mall. The drinks were expensive, but the Happy Hour menu was all $1.95.
I'm going to go back to sleep now. I drank a lot last night.
