Wam Bam Ashleyanne is not a local DJ but PDX kinda has a little thing going with [...]

Celestial Clockwork: A Movie Overlooked

"Sometimes I Eat Spiders" is the best song in the movie... not as pretty as opera... but it's solid kitch-core!

This is a strange one…

Hey, I missed you guys! Due to the dedication to the new QPDX Podcast, 2 Girls 1 Podcast, I’ve been a little busy of late. However, I love writing about movies, and little could keep me away from this blog for long.

Celestial Clockwork, made in 1995 by Venezuelan director, Fina Torres (Oriana and Woman on Top), is one of the stranger movies I’ve [...]

Right before I leave Captain’s place in Portland, I start revving up for my return to Brooklyn.

It’s been something I’ve consistently done, not exactly consciously, but as I sit on his couch at my laptop thinking about how in a few days I will be back across the country, I want to start scheduling time with people and activities. It sort of eases the pain and separation anxiety of [...]
