Place the Katu Anchor with their shower-towel (from the Katu Blogger Meetup)

As some of you might know, a bunch of us got together for a Katu blogger Meetup–“We Are All Going To Die!! Part 11 or possibly 12 (from the Katu Kool-aid?)”.

Well, JC took some pics while he was there, as did most of the “bloggers”. My pics might be a little different. I went to the restroom (free beer and wine), and that apparently is also their shower.

So, Pipeline readers, below are pics of the Katu Anchors and let’s match them with their shower towels. I mean, do you think the lower people get to use the prize shower and leave their dirty towels–no way!

I’ll throw the first out…I’m going with Steve Dunn is a blue towel man (sorry for the cloudy pic). what do you think..perhaps yellow or black?

KATU:”unjustly lumping Pedophiles, Artists, Pot Smokers, Musicians, and Skinheads in the same bunch.”

My friend over at Public Press emailed me about this…

In an apparent attempt to cast aspersions on Portland’s “Keep Portland Weird!” attitude, KATU is running a story that puts any fringe belief and behavior in the same bag, unjustly lumping Pedophiles, Artists, Pot Smokers, Musicians, and Skinheads in the same bunch….READ ON at PublicPress.org

We Are All Going To Die!! Part 11 or possibly 12 (from the Katu Kool-aid?)

Dear Portland:

Just because I make fun of Katuand really, all local news everywhere in the country is pretty much the sameI don’t hate Katu…they provide me some enjoyment and good material. The whole “We Are All Going To Die!!” series would not be possible without Katu’s “Spirit of the Northwest”🙂

Tonight, Katu is having a bunch of us bloggers over at their place. For some reason, they didn’t invite the PDX PIPELINE crew or the Portland Mercury crew…hmmm, but they did invite the Portland Metroblogger crew, and in turn, Betsy invited the Merc–So we are all going to have some fun I guess…except what do they want?

From KATU

Hello fellow bloggers!

Channel 2 is hosting a meet-up of Portland-area bloggers and you’re invited!

KATU wants to get to know the blogging community and is interested in joining the conversation. There’s no agenda, other than to enjoy some food and beverages courtesy of our hosts. Meet fellow bloggers, view (and photograph!) the television studios and have some fun!

While there is street parking in the area — consider carpooling or taking public transit.

To help spread the word (and hear what fellow bloggers are saying about this meetup), let’s tag our blog posts and photos “KATUmeetup”.

Please RSVP so the right amount of food can be ordered, and when you do… feel free to post your blog address to your reply (optional).

Let me (or our KATU contact below) know if you have any questioins… hope to see you Wednesday August 29th! 🙂

Questions about this:

Please, no kool-aid…I used your tag “KATUmeetup”. Freinds? BFF maybe?

We Are All Going To Die!! Part 11 (from decapitated rattle snakes and dog fighting webmasters)

Sometimes, you miss the goodness of “The Spirit of the Northwest“, Katu, and forget that We Are All Going To Die (not in the natural ways).

Then, you take a look at their site and shudder in fear. I haven’t looked in a few days, and of the thirty stories announcing the apocolypse; these two stood out for me:

There are zombie rattle snakes roaming here? Go on Katu

  • “Turns out, even beheaded rattlesnakes can be dangerous.”
  • “the area where the Anderson’s live is near prime snake habitat
    • WTF? Yo Andersons–here is a public service announcement. If “prime snake habitat” is in the description of where you live, maybe you shouldn’t live there….that’s just me talking though…I’m sure it’s lovely.
  • “If another rattlesnake comes along, Anderson said he’ll likely try to kill it again, but said he’ll grab a shovel and bury it right there.”
    • Nice, good thinking–Here we see “Natural Selection” taking place at the Anderson snake “habitat”.
  • “It still gives me the creeps to think that son-of-a-gun could do that,” he said.
    • Me too Mr. Anderson–and I like to see a “son-of-a-gun” quote. Apparently, that is a triple dasher (which is only outdone by the “Triple Lindy”).

As for the dog-fighting guy; look at this mugshot:

“Police say he ran a company called “Dead Game Kennels” and say the website promoted dog fighting and betting.”

Yeah, that guy looks like a webmaster….snappy name too… (.net .info .biz and others still available)

Obviously, the end is near and We Are All Going To Die!!

We Are All Going To Die!! IX (from Stephen Colbert Junior)

Katu, aka The Spirit of The NorthWest🙂 , has another great story and pics. This bald eagle does not look happy and is kind of freaking me out.

If that is Stephen Colbert Junior, there is a “wag of the finger” coming Monday!

Although, what is rather frightening is the water it was swimming around in…that water is Bad News Bears (Walter Mathau Bad News Bears!).

There is a long story and a bunch of pictures of the Eagle.

PORTLAND, Ore. – A bald eagle rescued from a muddy pond is now doing well and may be released back into the wild this weekend.

Go look and find out…

We Are All Going To Die!! VII (‘Sheed Can’t Sell His Crib)

In what must have been the lead story for KATU (other than the alligator in SW Washington–google it–be afraid), Sheed can’t sell his house.

Yes, Rasheed “I helped destroy your team then left and won a championship” Wallace had to reduce his asking price from $5.5 Million to $5.2 Million.

What does this mean?

We Are All Going To Die!! V (from fruit-flavored meth)

If “Movie Rage” and Mustard Gas Weapon-leaks didn’t frighten you enough, KATU serves up the new scare-fest–Fruit-Flavored Meth. That’s right!

They are not going to sit by and let FOX take all the Meth Glory!

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) – What may be a marketing ploy among methamphetamine manufacturers has shown up in Lane County: fruit-flavored meth, aka Strawberry Quick.

Mmmmmm…Strawberry Quick…so enticing–BUT–Oh No! What about the Children?!

Sgt. Clint Riley of the sheriff’s department said there was no evidence that the meth had been marketed to children, though.

Close Call Indeed…So what shall we do?

“It’s definitely something to keep our eye on. But what it means, I don’t know.”

Ahh, keep me eye on–sound advice! We Are All Going To Die!
