We decided to focus on the positive today and talk about them. I remember interviews from guys

10 THINGS: People #Winning With Social Media

We love social media. It is hands down the best way to rally people for 2-3 days for a cause that they will forget as soon as a new one comes along. It ‘s also a great way to make friends and fans and/or stalk “follow” people you adore or perhaps just want to know

10 Things: NW Artists You Can Run Into At SXSW

Well folks, we’re just a couple of weeks away from the music portion of SXSW. I’m glad the festival comes in early March because with February being the shortest month of the year (Happy Black History Month) it makes the wait seem much shorter.

10 THINGS: Black Portland Didn’t Know About Black Portland

So we have to talk about this Black Portland thing, right? Right. If you haven’t heard, ATL rappers Yung Thug & Bloody Jay recently dropped a mixtape titled Black Portland.

10 Things: You’ll Need To Survive Until The Summer

The one thing that ties the whole Northwest region together is the crappy weather. Truthfully,  it could be much worse; we escape tornados, blizzards and other weather extremes, but all the cold and/or wet weather puts such a damper on things. Once the holidays are over, we don’t have houses full of relatives and hot
