I’ll be watching the Timbers playoff match tonight, but if I weren’t I would be checking out one of these fantastic events (it’s not their fault they ended up taking place the same night as a Timbers playoff match!).
The topic of the Special Wordstock Edition of History Pub is Women in Oregon Politics: From Suffrage to the ERA. The presentation is free, all ages, and takes place at the Kennedy School Theater (5736 NE 33) at 7pm on Thursday, October 7 2010. [more]
Portland’s answer to MST3K, the 7th Planet Picture Show, takes place at 7pm this Thursday, October 7 2010 at Mount Tabor Theater (4811 SE Hawthorne).
This week’s film? The only film with Christopher Reeve a superman that I haven’t seen: Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987) [more]
The standard trope is that the playoffs are a new season, and that what happened in the regular season doesn’t matter now, but Portland Timbers fans wouldn’t mind if the team continues to play at as high a level in the USSF Division II 2010 quarterfinals as they did in the final 10, undefeated, games of the regular season.

Also kicking off tonight (but continuing all weekend):
The 2010 Wordstock Festival takes place Thursday, October 7 through Sunday, October 10 2010.
The largest celebration of literature and literacy in the Pacific Northwest features exhibitors, authors, and workshops at the Oregon Convention Center (777 NE MLK Jr), and venues throughout the city. The schedule is intriguing. [more]
