InPortland now in the Oregonian
After weeks of subjecting readers to cheeky promos complete with photos of pierced punks casually chatting with soccer moms, The Oregonian's new "alt weekly" supplement debuted in today's edition. If Willamette Week and Portland Monthly mated and gave birth to a mutant baby born with a complete lack of shame, this is what it would like (as of yet, all that's available online is a brief overview).
Wait, upon further review, if Portland Monthly reproduced asexually and one half remained Portland Monthly and the other half was made up of all the chromosomes Portland Monthly no longer wanted, the result would...you guessed it, InPortland.
Ok, one more analogy to put this all into perspective: PM = Arnold Schwarzenegger (pre this), IP = Danny Devito (post, well, everything).
Needless to say InPortland has gotten off to a rocky start but it's worth picking up for the blurb on "Gimmie Doughnut," the new single for sale exclusively at Voodoo Doughnut.
