Random Nuggets

-I was fortunate enough to witness the Portland-based (100 years and running) Franz bakery demonstrate their hipness by creating and presenting the world's longest hotdog and bun combo. Peep game:

-'Stach for Cash, a fundraiser/contest for best mustache in categories such as sexiest (an oxymoron), bushiest, and creepiest, was a huge disappointment. Jeff, Kes, and I didn't really give it a chance, but just had to leave immediately after walking in and seeing everyone sporting fake mustaches. Come on...

-Back in April, I was reading through the music section in The Mercury, one of our great free weekly papers, and saw this upcoming show...The Passion of the Christ with the Sounds of Slayer. The local club, Sabala's, decided that the best way to celebrate the birth of Our Lord was to project Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ, turn the sound off, and blast the angelic Sunday worship sounds of Satan's own Slayer. That is so wrong, but so rad.

-Aside from the Daytime World Naked Bike Ride (which drew several thousand participants this year), the number one gayest event I haven't yet attended is Voodoo Doughnut's COCKFEST 2006. At this "contest" (I don't see how this is anything but a lose-lose situation), men get together and erectify their penis', then see who can stack the most doughnuts on their stick. No. But then again I do so cherish their apple fritters & soul-saving 22-hour business day, and well...the cock-n-balls is a masterful stroke (hah) of genius:
