I know some internet pals live in Portland. And I have physical friends that live there as well. Regardless, I fucking hate Portland. Never once did I get more cockeyed looks and rude comments than in that city. Yes, the beer and food are both plentiful and delicious. Many good record & book shops are to be found. And I seemed to fall in love with a new girl at every corner I turned. Still, the people there are terrible. I’m guessing there’s a few people who’d like to fight me over these words. Fuck you. My scrawny Mid-Western ass with definitely win. I’ll even buy you a plane ticket down here. Now, setting all geographic animosities aside, I will say that this band , who unfortunately resides in that most pretentious of cities, is actually worth the listen. I know there was all this mystery and controversy surrounding this band but I could really give a fig about that. And speaking of figs, I had some delicious ricotta and candied fig ice cream today. Yummy.
