It depends on the month usually, Carl. We get some of the driving storms, but usually it's a finer rain, no more than an inch in 24 hours. Often, it'll rain for 20 minutes, be sunny for an hour or so, rain a bit more... Lessee, drawbacks for Portland-- job market has sucked for the last four years that I've been here. There is a definite infestation of both hippies and hipsters. The town is very ghettoized, and since gentrification has hit a lot of the traditional ethnic neighborhoods, many persons of color have left for the suburbs. As a Hispanic woman I get a LOT of liberal racisim thrown my way (I'm not the walking Hispanic Heritage Google, yo). 1 in 5 Oregon children go to bed hungry, and our schools aren't all that great. Everywhere has its problems, though. I think Portland's pluses outweigh its minuses. But that's just me.

Oh, I must agree, I've only met Linsel once and we spent about four hours talking, he's an amazing guy.

Shoot, I'm not much of a downtown person. Bailey's Taproom at 213 SW Broadway, probably, I rented a room from the owner's girlfriend for a while, he knows his beer. I'm an unrepentant fan of Stumptown, even if the staff trend towards that 1% of not-terribly-nice folks, there's one at 128 SW 3rd Ave.

So, you're working on Leverage. I assume that means you're coming to Portland, so I've helpfully compiled a list of beers you need to try. No need to thank me, I just like to do good works.

Dear Mr. Wil, Totally off topic, but regarding the "SyFy" bleaurgh, not only did Mr. Brooks insult all geeks everywhere, he insulted female geeks by failing to recognize we exist and spend money. I found his webpage, and his email address (Google is your friend) and explained to him in erudite terms that he's a jerkface.

I caught the last half of the show last night (was raiding, sorry). You were totally creepy. Like, had to turn the lights on and get one of the dogs to come sit on my bed with me creepy. And it wouldn't have been half as effective if Robyn Lively and William Mapother's performance hadn't been just as awesome as yours. I honestly can't remember the last time I was that freaked out by a television show, let alone a film (it might have been Blair Witch. I was cheering on the Cloverfield monster, those people were too stupid to live). Good job, man.

Yep. That tops a six year old spoiling AVP for me. When a kindegardener has seen an R-rated movie before his teacher? That's just not FAIR.

It's an adaptation of a property that people have treasured for 20+ years. Of course there's going to be blood, some people just can't accept any changes to canon. You really want to start a slapfight, get a group of Beatles fans together and show them Across the Universe. That's hours of good entertainment right there (unless you're one of the people who can't stand covers of Beatles songs, in which case you'll be one of the slapfighters and I'll be watching with some popcorn. Man, I love that movie, but then again, in my brain, people break into random public choreographed dance sequences all the time!) (p.s. I liked Crystal Skull)

Wil's a Cylon? Huh, that actually explains a lot.

I'm sorry, Wil. When your coworker/geek friend repeats it after every second sentence, has come up with a shorthand way of typing it, and a coded signal to notify those In The Know that he is thinking it during a staff meeting, "That's What She Said" gets really, really, ridiculously old.

Son of an encephalitic whore. I'll be in LA, but I'll be having Super Happy Family Fun Time with relatives flying 3000 miles into town, which trumps my measly 900 mile flight, so they get to choose our shindiggery. *makes sad puppy dog eyes*

Dear Mr. Seth MacFarlane: Wil Wheaton speaks for me regarding Surfin' Bird. Bow bow oom mow mow. Love, Mary Sue Geez, all I did last night was skip around downtown Portland arm-in-arm with a priest wearing his collar singing songs from the Sound of Music. I love love love the fact that my last sentence is 100% true.

When I was 9 years old, my folks took my 7 year old sister and myself to see Bill Cosby and Red Skelton perform in Reno. Once again proving that my parents are freakin' awesome. There was a Robin Williams special that ran on Comedy Central a lot in the mid-90s, it was obviously from the late 70s or early 80s but I watched it over and over again because it was so hysterical, I spent a lot of time falling off the couch. Margaret Cho is funny to me, but that's mostly because we grew up in roughly the same area at roughly the same time. You know, everyone has been covering their favorite Carlin bits these last few weeks, but very few people mention my favorite, which was his explanation about the differences between football and baseball.
