[pdx] Portland: On The Edge Of Something Or Other

2629.(via OLive)The National Lists of Things Administration, outsourced at this juncture to the makers of Edge Shaving Gel, have deemed Portland as one of 10 cities on the “Edge of Greatness”.

Having been born in Oregon and grown up in the Willamette Valley, I’d say what we’re actually on is the Edge of Wetness, but that’s my sarcastic side speaking out, and I’ve promised to discipline him this year. No dinner for you tonight, young man, and we’re not reading you any more Camus for your bedtime story!

What pushes a city up to the Edge? Well, in our case, Indie arts (hallo, Indiewood!), indie music, a whole bunch of LEED-y buildings and soccer.

On the list, we are not quite as Edgy as Denver, but Edgier than Austin, Seattle, and even Los Angeles? Wha? We’re edgier than Elay? Dude!

Here’s the List. We await yet the next list of something or other that Portland will no doubt appear on.

If there’s a list of cities that are apt to appear on lists, Portland would no doubt be right up at the top of it.
