Another Portland Blog

ATTENTION AICN AND CHUD READERS!




If you've come to this blog in search of "Goonies Never Say Die!" conference photos, they'll be posted sometime tomorrow. Until then, here's two links:


  • You may enjoy this article about the time I "broke into" the Goonies house.


  • Or there's this lengthy rundown on Cyndi Lauper's video for "Goonies 'R Good Enough" courtesy of phooeyhoo.com


  • UPDATE: Earlier today Ain't it Cool News (link) and CHUD (link) both ran a story I passed along on last weekend's "Goonies Never Say Die!" conference/anniversary celebration in Astoria. Harry Knowles ran it with a favorable intro. Meanwhile, Devin Faraci, an editor over CHUD, made fun of the article (but, despite his concerns/criticisms, ran it anyway).

    So I spent my workday getting lambasted by and defending myself against movie geeks from around the world on AICN's Talkback message board. Here's my favorite snide comment, compliments of "anchorite." It's a response to not only the Goonies article but the bits I posted on the "meth epidemic" last week.


    "And to the guy who contributed this bit of news to this willy-wanker of a site, why don't you get off your ass and try to make downtown Portland less of a shithole. Stop blogging your miniscule brains out and start actually DOING something about it. Need some ideas? You can start by throwing 'AIDS Man' in front of a bus. Several times, if necessary. You liberal, overly-tolerant jackoffs have let a perfectly good city turn into a hellhole because you're too damn scared to do anything about it. Losers."


    Sheesh. I wonder if the fans holding out for a "Sixteen Candles" sequel are receiving this sort of abuse. Some days it just doesn't pay to be a fan of '80s cult classics.
