Random Links: "Does Anyone Actually Read These Things?" Edition

The "Random Links" feature has become a Friday tradition here on Welcome to Blog. No one reads these things but they're fun to put together. So here's another batch of lonesome links in search of loving homes. Won't you make their dreams come true by clicking on each one?




  • First up, an overdue thanks to Stumptown Confidential (link) and Humu Kon Tiki (link) for linking to this match-up review of the Alibi and Thatch, a new tiki bar in town. The Portland Mercury's recent review of Thatch can be found by clicking here.


  • Click here to view time-lapse images of arcade games from the '80s. I do believe they qualify as being "trippy."


  • The owners of Schumacher Furs called it quits this week. Hmmm...what controversial/irritating business should be run out of Portland next? Is there any way we could sick those protesters on Alaska Airlines? Their smug "Lewis and Clark" radio ads have been getting on my nerves for a while now.


  • Does Portland need its own city-themed condom? Sure, why not?


  • Click here for David Koenig's rant about changes that are in store for Disneyland's Tom Sawyer's Island. This spring "Imagineers" will ditch the Mark Twain theme for a Pirates of the Caribbean overhaul.


  • I've never said any of these eight things to a bartender but I've caught plenty of bartenders performing these faux pas (thanks, Sho).


  • Here's a handy chart comparing the heights of downtown Portland's skyscrapers. I always thought the "Big Pink" was the city's tallest but the Wells Fargo Center has nine feet up on it. At # 3, KOIN Center.


  • The Blazers win a few games, make a trade for Fred(dy) Jones and everybody's talking about them, maybe, landing the # 8 slot in the playoffs. It's their best season in years and, so far, no one on the team has been caught with ganja or mc'ing dog fights. Somewhere, Phil Jackson is quietly sobbing into a monogrammed towel.


  • Two links carelessly lifted from Blogtown: click here for a parody ad for those space-aged Nikes from Back to the Future Part 2 and click here for photos of "hot chicks with douchebags." "Power Laces not included"?! Lame.


  • Click here to read Bubbly Red Stuff's review of a recent Decemberists' show in Berlin and here for videos.


  • Does the world need a remake of Police Academy 5: Assignment: Miami Beach? No, no it does not. AND the new version doesn't have a guy that runs around making funny noises with his mouth?! Lame.


  • Finally, yet another reason why undergrads shouldn't be allowed to carry lightsabers:
