I live in Portland but am visiting the East Coast right now, your amazing blog is making me want to be back right now. Awesome job of capturing everything about the city! (This was more of a statement than a question, but still..)
We’re launching Nerve Dating in Portland next week and wanted to get on your radar. Disclaimer - the site doesn’t sound or behave like most other dating sites. It doesn’t suck. We’re targeting a younger, cultural crowd who are out and about, love film, food - the type of people who read Stumptown Mag.
Wondering whether it sounded of interest for a potential piece next week? If so, I can send more info, some insights into the Portland market, and set up a time to chat with Sean.
So, all you folks are “the type of people who read Stumptown Mag,” right? Are you part of a cultural crowd who are out and about? Do you guys want to use Marina’s lame hipster dating site? If so, I don’t know. Maybe drop Marina a line and let her know you’re interested in using her website to find other people to fuck? Anyway. Thanks for sending us that promotional item, Marina!
I'm Chelsea, native Portlander. I enjoy your blog quite a bit. Is it a magazine as well?
Thanks! We used to run a full web magazine (stumptownmag.com), but then everyone got busy so we switched to using the Tumblr full-time. We might fire up the main site again this summer, depending on everyone’s schedules. No print magazine, though.
I feel sorry for you that you, what seems like somewhat frequently, have to pull all nighters? Good luck with that dude!
Bah, work is work. Sometimes you have to do it - it’s good for you, I say. Plus, I call it an “all-nighter,” but I’m typically in bed by about 4 a.m. or so. Give me a weekend night with good friends and drinks and music, and I’ll beat 4 a.m. easily.
what is menswear coming to? it’s a sad sad time. don’t fall into this trap, it is ridiculous and hideous. this has been a public service announcement.
Word to this. Why in the fuck have guys been working so hard the past few years to wrench fashion away from slobs at the mall wearing flip-flops and track suits? Just to go back to wearing sweatpants in public again? Fuck that. That’s just lazy bullshit, egged on by designers who pimp free shit to bloggers and GQ editors to make a buck off of kids who will wear whatever they see on Tumblr. How about this: Instead, why don’t we all just agree to dress like adults, huh? No matter what the #menswear boys on Tumblr are paid to tell us to do? Deal?
