A Scumbag’s Guide to Portland – Part 4

Yeah. With your dumb orange car.  Hey cats and kittens, it’s that time again! Happy belated Memorial Day. Hope you’re still making out with a soldier you met last night, and eating leftover BBQing burgers, cooked in the name of our brave civil war heroes. It’s that blissful time of year when day-drunk

Broke-Ass Pop Culture: Thanksgiving Cliches

First of all, I hope you all had a super Thanksgiving. And if you’re waiting in the checkout line with a cart full of Black Friday doorbuster deals, you are crazy. For my family’s get together yesterday, I decided to make a dessert. I’m not the best cook in the
