Random Links: Spring Break Edition

Did Spring Break come a week late this year or is it just me? I thought it always fell on the third week in March. Anyway, here's another round of random links:

  • Some people call it "Spring Break," Zach Randolph calls it's "bereavement leave." Read more here.


  • Last week, someone at the Crystal Ballroom stole Modest Mouse frontman Isaac Brock's lucky hat. This week, he flipped out during a show in South Dakota and attacked himself with a knife. Coincidence? Or was his latest bout with self-destruction caused by this monstrosity? It's all Paula Abdul's fault, I know it.


  • The author of Phooeyhoo, an old friend of mine, spent part of his winter break in Vietnam. He returned with photos and a word to the wise: don't ever try to cross a street in Hanoi.


  • BREAKING NEWS: If you stand hang around at a local anti-war rally holding a "Osama loves PDX liberals" sign, people will call you names.


  • I passed by Printing Press Park over the weekend and found myself thinking, "Huh? What?" Reid over at Metroblogging Portland dished out some context in this recent post.


  • "Pass the wine, please. I want to become crazy."


  • It is my dream that, someday, I'll write an office memo so terrible it will be made fun of by a writer at Slate. After all, everybody's gotta have goals.


  • Click here for "Rejected Pretexts for [a] War in Iran." If the administration breaks out a "duckling suicide bombers" threat, they may just sell the public on another one of these quagmires.


  • If you bike, don't talk. If you talk, don't bike.


  • Like many people, every time I pass the abandoned Portland Gas and Coke Company building I think to myself, "Say, that would make a great McMenamins." Here's at least one reason why that won't ever happen: the land it sits on is an environmental catastrophe.


  • Coming to the Portland metropolitan area in 2008: a Renaissance Fair. Unlike Reed's annual "Renn Fayre," all the geeks at this one will probably keep their clothes on.


  • They're right. These toys shouldn't exist.


  • Finally, it took them twelve years but the writing staff at Mad TV have come up with something that's kinda, sorta funny:
