Mic Check, Expanded Edition: Dethklok

dethklok tour pr

In this week's print edition, AP Kryza interviewed two-dimensional metal thunder gods Dethklok, stars of Cartoon Network's Metalocalypse. Although we only had space to run two illuminating answers there—regarding Wisconsin's election results and singer Nathan Explosion's trash-compactor vocal style—the conversation was wide-ranging, covering everything from Cool Ranch Doritos to Sarah Palin. It ...   More

Brew Views: Sarah Palin: You Betcha!

Brew Views
The knee-jerk response to Sarah Palin: You Betcha! is that the Barracuda from Wasilla has gotten a documentary she richly deserves, though it might be just as true that wanting to make a Sarah Pali   More

Conversations across a divided country with Dan Hoyle

Arts & Books
Dan Hoyle says his epiphany came the day the journalist and playwright found himself sitting in a little garage cafe in San Francisco being offered sensitively prepared food crafted from morally conscious ingredients to help benefit the children of the Taliban, or "something to that effect." “I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, what is America coming to?" recalls Hoyle. "I need to find the real America. ...   More

Merkley's "Animal Crush Videos" Bill Signed into Law

Here's something to take your mind off the political infighting in Washington DC for a second. Something actually was achieved today in the nation's capital. President Obama signed into law the Animal Crush Video Prohibition Act of 2010 sponsored by Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), along with Sens. Jon Kyl (R-AZ) and Richard Burr (R-NC). Merkley joined the president in the Oval Office for the ...   More

Nobody Works Anymore: Palin v. Biden edition

Okay! Now that we're about to actually see Sarah Palin in a national debate for the first (and, we hope, last) time, it seems like the best possible moment to haul out all the Palin-related weirdness we've been sitting on for the last month. She's a liar: Rolling Stone rounds up the top 10, but there are many more . She's got skills: She'll win the talent and swimsuit contests handily. [youtube ...   More

Shepherd Fairey, What Have You Started?

Remember this image? It was our cover last week, the work of Barry Stock , and it cleverly (if we may so flatter ourselves) riffs on the iconic Barack Obama HOPE poster by Shepherd Fairey . Fairey's work, which started popping up all over the country (appearing both in the window of my neighbor and the office of Willamette Week 's publisher) in January, is easily the most iconic image of the 2008 ...   More

Nobody Works Anymore: Last Chance to Laugh at Sarah (We Hope)

Sarah Palin in her sportscaster days. Yes, that says "Lots of Dogs." We're almost there, folks. 24 hours from now, we will almost certainly have a new president. If our luck holds, it won't be the killah from Wasilla. Still, if tomorrow evening is the last we ever hear of America's first female vice-presidential nominee for the Republican party (unlikely—she's not going anywhere ...   More

Earl Blumenauer v. Sarah Palin

U.S. Rep. Earl Blumenauer may not be attending town hall meetings on health care to defend his reasonable proposal on end-of-life discussions between docs and their patients. But the Oregon Democrat is plenty ticked off at former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin for calling his proposal "inherently evil" and lying about what it would do as a means of scaring people. Maybe he should challenge her to a ...   More

The Closest That Sarah Palin Got To Portland

Under the watchful plumes of Richland's nuclear power plant, Sarah Palin visited Eastern Washington last week and signed copies of her new book, "Going Rogue," at a local Hastings bookstore on Sunday. According to earlier reports, the Tri-Cities is as close to Portland (about 170 miles) as Palin is going to get on her multi-week book tour. I was in Richland for Thanksgiving but couldn't quite ...   More
