Lowell is our new favorite spot in Portland. Buy a trinket for your altar and cloak your shoulders in a storied, kinesthetically-fulfilling textile from far yonder. Maya and Dino are the purveyors, curators and charmers at Lowell — stop in and see them some time.

This prescription for a life lived all top down and outside the yellow lines made its way into a mezzanine drawer at Ace Hotel Portland and was found by an unsuspecting individual in need of some advice. The exact provenance is something of a mystery — though we believe the 5-step program, if not the transcription, to be the sage advice of a person six years of age, named Lucien. The Advice From Lucien Poster is our first in a series we’re creating in-house and with some of our favorite artists and young philosophers. It’s screenprinted in Portland on 250 gsm stone blue paper in a limited edition of 150. The word so far is it can really help out your life-living game.

Martie Kilmer, founder of Portland’s Space Design, has an eye for flora and a knack for designing living spaces that cater to all of the physical and discarnate attributes of planthood. It may be innate or a product of her upbringing, bouncing between the Alaskan tundra and the amber hues of Sedona, or her globe-spanning pursuit of the edenic and unusual. Randall Garcia shot this step-by-step video DIY by Martie on the art of terrariums. 


Dynasty Handbag performs tonight at Valentine’s in Portland with Alicia McDaid, New Moon Poncho and DJ Jen O of Akin Jewelry. It’s not something that you want to miss on — avoid crushing regret by attending.

Ace and his ‘rents Jesse and Erin came up from San Francisco to stay with us and Ace took what was rightfully his — our ACE stamps. Viva la guerilla art!


We really love Reading Frenzy in Portland. It’s where we first read Doris and Burn Collector and everything by sts and got vintage postcards to send to our penpals before email shrunk our brains. RF lost their lease a few months ago and they’re looking for a new space. Hopefully you can kick down a little coin to help them make it happen — viva la real books!


We have a serious eating disorder called ClydeCommonitus. We don’t want to eat anywhere else. Chris DiMinno is just a totally fucked up genius. We stopped in the other day for a sampling of some new things on the menu beginning with smoked trout chowder and a salad of seared braised bacon, frisée, fingerling potatoes and sauce gribiche, followed by porchetta, shelling beans, pickle relish, and poached eggs. A pair of dishes that cast every other dish you’ve eaten in your life in a very unflattering light. We devoured a quiche of Calabrian chili, rosemary, blue cheese and caramelized onion followed by a beef tongue omelette with horseradish, romesco, grilled onion and potato croutons. As in, crispy croutons made of potato. You do the math.
After we loosened our belts a bit, we wept with joy into a chef’s board of brûléed french toast with spiced apples and an almond butter parfait topped with roasted almonds. We died, and then we started counting the days until we could go back.
Stay tuned for more from Chris and his team here — we’ll be posting recipes, good ideas and food porn on the regular.
