Re: “In Reflexivity, Balance Dance Company Looks Forward, Not Back

So-o-o much better written than your review of Ballet Idaho and no personal disses or non-sequitur comments. Kudos!

Re: “The Week in Review: Of Bikes and Boobies

Burlesque is "nontraditional art?" Please. And what's not traditional about scantily clad women? What, is she Amish?

Re: “The Week in Review: Swinging from the Rafters

"The Troubled With Man" - not "The Troubled Man". It's a significant difference. =)

Re: “Sociology Professor Randy Blazak On A Mission

Hey, thanks for the kind words folks! I'm really excited about this book. I fixed most of the copy errors (that were a product of the amphetamine haze it was written in (meaning a certain SSRI I was under the influence of)). Please feel free to contact me with any questions about the book. Rock on, Randy.

Re: “Sociology Professor Randy Blazak On A Mission

I had to check out any book that is compared to "Swingers" (my favorite movie of all time). I stayed up half the night reading "Mission." This has to be the funniest book about depression ever written. I loved all the music references. My dad is a big ELO fan and I can tell there are secret messages in the book for people like him. But they way Blazak writes about music is exactly like the way my friends and I talk about music. I think it's time for a road trip to Portlandia! A lot of pleasure for only 6 bucks!

Re: “Sociology Professor Randy Blazak On A Mission

I think I paid $6 for it on Amazon and what a bargain that was. I found this novel appealing cross generations for it is a very diverse piece of work. I am a Music professor at a Jr. College in California and I this it contains enough hidden and non hidden references to the music scene I will be assigning it as extra credit next semester...Great job Mr. Blazak, was that ELO references in there?

Re: “Sociology Professor Randy Blazak On A Mission

Flowing like a mad white water rafting trip, this book is Portland to the fullest, I laughed so hard I almost wet myself. It's kind of like a funny Stienbeck but more "On the Roadish" but set in the 1990's. Read in one sitting, could not put it down.

Re: “Sociology Professor Randy Blazak On A Mission

This book is an instant classic, Hunter S. Thompson, Kerouac and a bit of drunken Hemingway flow through this book. Articulate, well written and very funny. Hidden innuendoes and some dark humor. It is a "welcome relief" and should be turned into a screen play.
Look at todays NY Times best seller list #2 BURIED PREY, by John Sandford How does that happen and a book like , The Mission of the Sacred Heart does not even rate.
How many Prey books are out there? The first one sucked and the 100th one is not much better. READ , The Mission of the Sacred Heart and I promise you will not regret it............Its that good!!!!

Re: “Sociology Professor Randy Blazak On A Mission

I'm 2/3 of the way through this book and I just love the way it moves. It's hilarious and sad at the same time. I'm sure there is a good back story behind it. It really captures rainy Portland.

Re: “Review: Tru at BCT

Interesting. I found Ford's Capote to be endearing throughout the entire piece. He was cocky, but in an approachable way. And I thought the gossipy nature of the text was an effective device to help show how dependent Truman really was on the people around him.

To each their own though.

Re: “Something Funny in Boi: Hijinx is New Downtown

Last week the scene clearly stated that Brian Lee and Pat Mac are just co-managers, not the owners, just making a correction! This is copy and pasted from the scene! Mac and Lee are managing partners. Hijinx is owned by Colby Smith, former limited partner in The Big Easy Concert House (now the Knitting Factory). Karl Pence, former Hangar owner, is a consultant
