THE TASTY BITS THIS WEEK
Special Feature Story of the Week
–Five members of the Team are off representing their home countries during this international break. Jake Gleeson is between the posts for New Zealand, and Footy Danso is representing The Gambia. Of Closer interest, Lovel Palmer is playing for Jamaica against Guatemala. BUT most interesting is the Intra-Team Rivalry of Rodney Wallace of Costa Rica is hosting Steve Purdy from El Salvador! Our Timbers really have a foot print in International Soccer.
-AND in an attempt to shake things up a bit, the Timbers Management made a Trade last week with the Philadelphia Union. We Traded Jorge Perlazza for Portland Raised Danny Mwanga! Nobody likes to see popular players leave the club, but he just has not produced goals this season and in sports played at this high of a level, a change of scenery can be all it takes to get a Striker finding the back of the net again. We wish Perlazza lots of goals (except against us) and we welcome Mwanga to the Club. NOW lets start winning some games!!!
Each week I check in with Marshall Kirkpatrick for the latest in Tech news and tweets. Whether he is tirelessly building his new project Plexus Engine or continuing his work with Read Write Web, Marshall always has his finger on the crystal ball of whats new in the world of technology. This week I will show you a few things that are inspiring us and we think are totally awesome.
-Some killer Tweets this week from Marshall include this one “Experience is valuable because doing anything for the first time is really inefficient. Duh.” He also gave us some proof of the popularity of iPhones to their owners with “Latest v. of Android took 7 months to hit 7% of its users upgraded. Latest iOS hit 7% in just 19 hrs https://twitter.com/_DavidSmith/st … says
Unrelated to Phone Technology, but totally awesome from a Musical Production Point of view, you should click on the You tube link on our website to watch is this link Marshall tweeted out! It is a little song and video featuring Mister Rogers, and some crafty editing by PBS Digital Studios!
-On Google Plus Marshall sent out the most heart warming picture of Popular Puppet Kermit the Frog. Go to our website and check it out. It will make you smile with a wrinkly lip, if you know what I mean!
SPECIAL SUPPORTLAND TIDBIT
The Music on this weeks show is all about the clicks and the pops of records. ALL the music was from my vinyl collection, and even though MP3s and CDs are easy and everywhere, Portland is fortunate enough to have have a deep tradition in actual Record stores. There are links to all these stores on out website and we always encourage people to shop locally! If you know specifically what you are looking for, you need to go to Everyday Music or Music Millennium. They both carry records and cd’s and buy your used music! That way you can shop even longer. The staff at both locations are super helpful and will help you find what you are looking for. I have also ordered records from Music Millennium and they were awesome. Sometimes, though, you just want to browse through crates of records and see what finds you! That is where 2nd Ave Records, Jack Pot records, and Exiled records hit the spot. These shops cater to the obscure and awesome. No Conway Twitty or Thrift store Lawrence Welk here…These shops absolutely LOVE music and know we do to. Nothings free, or even cheap, but the quality is always tops! AND then there is the granddaddy of them all. Cross Roads Music! This store is the combination of over 35 different COLLECTORS who are always upping there personal collections and putting the seconds in the store. You will be daunted by the vastness of the store when you walk in. DO NOT plan on just hopping in for a second and looking around, before you know it, you will be doing the dj hand jive over crate after crate of mysteries and happiness. The place has such a revolving inventory, that it truly is never the same shop for more than a day. All of these shops keep the music scene here fresh and new, while paying the ULTIMATE tribute to musicians of the past! Great Portland Scrambles all of them!
