RSS icon Comments on Portland Hearts Skaters


Skaters are clearly the most oppressed people alive today. That they have the courage to not tie their shoes each morning is a testament to their unbreakable spirit.

So move to Portland, you big fucking loser.

What tree @ 2 said.

I don't want a fucking skateboarder shrine in front of my city hall. What's this official respect for skateboarding, which is supposed to be so cool and counterculture? How co-opted by the man have these little skate pukes become? What happened to their rampant and glorious disregard for public property? Jesus, get rebellious again you pussies, before The Man buys and sells your souls just like he has ours.

And enough about Goddamn Portland. Seriously. It's a fine little progressive burg, but Seattle kicks its ass as an actual city and you know it. So do they. Deal.

No, it's the King County Courthouse that has the crack problem. City Hall has the big-empty-unused-space problem. Have you even been to City Hall?

Posted by me | August 10, 2007 4:48 PM

Yes. Kind of a dangerous place, IMHO. Wouldn't want to be a retiree trying to go there, that's for sure.

No, where is City Hall?

I wish I could add something, but Matthew @3's response can't be improved upon.

Portland..the land of milk and honey. One giant orgasm spewing endless milky white cream all over it enlightened citizens--who then ingest the mana and create all kinds of amazing banjo hymns and hootenanny hay rides. Portland....rubbing an intoxicating halluncinogenic salve non-stop on it's anus and then having prophetic visions. to oral satisfy itself while Colin Meloy fingers it asshole lovingly. Oh Portland....yes..Portland...yeah..Por...t....

Crack(tm): Ask for it by name!

@5, why would a retiree want to visit city hall?

Question at large: Why does the stranger have such a hard-on about the idea of skaters at city hall? It seems to be a common meme there.

This "skater rage" is getting tiresome.
