Once upon a time there was a goat named Billy. Billy was sad, Because Billy didn’t fit in. Billy had hopes, And Billy had dreams. Billy could see yesterday, and imagine tomorrow.

But no one read and no one knew… That today is based on yesterday, And tomorrow is based on today, And “now” is only fleeting.

Georgetown Brewing might make the finest beers on the west coast and one of the people behind the brewery’s success is Manny Chao, for whom Manny’s Pale Ale is named. Chao, when he’s not brewing some of the world’s best beer, fights crime, keeping the city safe from those who would try to hurt its most vulnerable (like this creature he’s secured in a beer bubble). In his work life, though, Chao and Georgetown make beers that are smooth, crisp and always on point, whether that’s their Chopper’s Red Ale, Manny’s Pale Ale or their award winning Bodhizafa IPA, which […]

We’ve seen his videos in The Oregonian, The Portland Mercury, and in Willamette Week, showing him standing between chaos and bloodshed when a gun was pulled on BLM protesters downtown. But have we ever really seen Mike BlueHair? I met up with the local copwatcher for an interview, a ride-along, and a closer look at the man behind the camera. Not everyone knows what copwatching is, so I asked Mike to define the term in his own words, “A copwatcher,” he said, […]

Adam Rousseau’s art is striking, charming and, despite its intricacies, is easy on the digesting eye. As such, we wanted to feature some of his drawings here and ask him three important questions. Enjoy! Jake Uitti: When you sit down to draw, what goes through your head? Adam Rousseau: Most of the time when I’m working I’m really just trying to shut out any extraneous thought and focus on what’s happening on the page/wood panel. It’s very meditative for me in that sense. Music is essential for me getting anything done as well, and I think sometimes what I end […]

Seattle Superhero, Kshama Sawant, has been doing her Robinhood thing in the Emerald City for years as a member of the City Council. She helped spearhead the $15/hr minimum wage campaign that city voters adopted and has been pushing for income and housing equality, as well as police oversight in the wake of the absurd proposed youth jail and police bunker. Sawant, in this time of ugly Presidential debating, is a politician worth celebrating. Art by Jill Denkmann

Master composer, Andrew Joslyn, has been adding his expertise to music all over the Emerald City, including tracks on The Heist and tunes by indie darling, David Bazan. Joslyn influences music culture in and out of the city and, in his spare time, fights evil doers with his magic violin. In short, the strings follow his very command. Art by Marc J Palm.
