I feel like I want some explanation on the creeper clown with the van.

Maybe. Sort of.

Was Portland or Austin first on the "keep blank weird" thing? Both not as good as "keep Denton beard" but that was probably stolen from somewhere too.

It's over 30 years old in Austin as was written on the side of a building across from UT.

That dude is like 90% of the way to being an even smaller Danzig. I don't understand why he doesn't embrace it. I pay money to see MiniMisfits

Also, I clearly don't have the sense of whimsy required to live in Portland.

He does.  He plays in a few "Mini-[Blank]" cover bands in town, and he MCs "Tiny Tuesdays," at this strip club, where all the dancers are under 5 feet tall.

Live fast, die young, leave a corpse that's undiscovered.

I dunno, man, that collection of shots could've been taken out in the park behind my house. Coffee, tea or clit rings?

Weirdest little boner....

Now that there's Little Person Danzig, Regular Dazing (also kinda tiny), we should find an Average Sized Danzig (like 5'10-6), Large Dazing (6-6'5), and Huge Danzig (6'-7' probably somewhere in Scandinavia) and take them on tour as Danzig Russian Nesting Dolls.

Dip TechnoViking in shoe polish and you've got Semi-Huge Danzig. Where you'll find the Polish Corridor is beyond me.

The only wonderful thing about the Portland and the rest of the west coast would be it rapidly slipping into the ocean.

hmmmmmmmmmm found this on wikipedia
" Because of strong free speech protections of the Oregon Constitution upheld by the Oregon Supreme Court in State v. Henry, 732 P.2d 9 (Or. 1987), which specifically found that full nudity and lap dances in strip clubs are protected speech,   Portland is widely considered to have more strip clubs per capita than Las Vegas or San Francisco.     Portland has been titled as "Pornland" for its strip clubs, erotic massage parlors, and high rate of child sex trafficking      The term was heavily used in 2010, but the term was referenced by Chuck Palahniuk in 2003 "

The difference being how hard you have to look for them in each town... bet it wasn't hard to find 'em in Portland.

Don't you enjoy the fact that some Portland freaks and/or hipsters are now available in a small convenient pocket carrying size?

looks like fun, but the site pics don't show any tatt chicks or death midgets... maybe they only come out at night?

Portland.  Like Seattle, but with more bars, less employment, and more depression/suicide.

Isn't Portland where everyone is secretly a werewolf or some other fairy tale creature?

Holy fark, all of this talk of Death Midget is causing us to overlook something far more spectacular:

2013-07-10 02:11:25 PM
And isn't Portland where that Faces Of Meth thing came from?
