Finally had time to sort through a few photos from HipsterApproved’s first visit to Portland (there’s 100s).
Portland was awesome and I highly recommend you go (even if you’re not a Hipster).
I was also able to visit Mount St. Helens in Washington and Mount Hood (and a few other places in the area). Beautiful!
My first stop was Voodoo Doughnuts, so sorry I went crazy taking pictures there. There was a line…so I kept shooting! The doughnuts were worth it! You should go!
And, yes…the food-carts were AMAZING.
To prepare…I’ve watched tons of the show Portlandia and have even read the Visitors Guide.
Wish me luck…and I’ll give you a full report in a couple of weeks.
“Portlandia (@ifcportlandia) is now following you on Twitter!”
My life is complete.
Great to be back at HipsterApproved World Headquarters in scenic Ocean View, Virginia.
Anyway..my mailbox had some cool stuff in it… For example the new Soundgarden song ‘Live To Rise‘ available as a FREE download on iTunes. All hipsters have iTunes, right? The song is great! It’s off of the Avengers soundtrack.
Speaking of iTunes…Jack White is providing streaming of his entire debut album Blunderbuss – free for a limited time. I’ve been listening to it, and I really look forward to getting a copy of my own on April 24th 2012! It’s some of his best work…And that statement is huge!
Also, speaking of great new music…I’ve been listening to a lot of the new Shins release Port of Morrow. It’s genius. I was lucky enough to get the 4-track acoustic EP because I got it at an independent record store (Birdland in Va Beach). I recommend trying to get it.
Some weird local news…that is pretty un-hip actually…Hey local people – Have you seen the big dead whale that washed up in OV? I went and checked it out after getting a whiff of it when I was going to Farm Fresh for some groceries! It’s on the beach right near the public bathrooms and the parking lot. Man…it’s gross…
It got me thinking about when that dead whale washed up in Oregon a few years gone by….this was way before Portlandia…
