#2 Ducks take on less-hapless-than-usual Buffaloes in Boulder
For those of you who can recall last year's matchup between these two teams, there was a bit of history to it: No team had ever been 44-point underdog underdog in conference history until Colorado's ill-fated venture into Autzen Stadium.

After months of obsessing over recruiting rankings, crucial missed plays and the saga of Johnny Football, the 2013-14 college football season is finally upon us. The season officially kicks off with the battle of the Carolinas set to the tune of that old South Carolinian ditty, “Sandstorm,” on ESPN at 3pm this afternoon. Both Orego...
Hear it for yourself tonight at Holocene's listening party.
Ever since the release of Music Has the Right to Children in 1998, the alternately nostalgic and deeply unnerving ambient music of Boards of Canada has captivated a small, cultish fanbase. There are the thousands of YouTube videos trying to emulate the hallucinog...

Like many of the Portland-area's great columnists, John Locanthi grew up in Beaverton. After briefly considering making the big move to the nearest large city so he could write about how people there are different from people in Beaverton, John decided to just stay in Beaverton. This former WW intern is aggressively seeking full-time employment. In the meantime, he shares the Beaverton w...More
