Subject: Contacts in Oregon
From: Easy Rider
Date: 02 Aug 99 - 09:35 AM

I'm vacationing in Oregon, this August, Flying to Portland and driving up to Eugene to visit friends.

What are the best things to see and do, in Oregon?

Where are the best guitar makers/ guitar shops?

Does anybody live in Oregon or in/near Eugene? We'd (my wife and I) like to meet you.

Powell's book store is an absolute must. Drive east on I-84 and check out the gorge and then back on the WA side on St Hwy 14 to Portland. If you decide to do that give me times and dates , we live about 2 hours east of Portland but the scenery is breath taking. My work schedule affords me some week days off as well. So EZR. It is a possibility. There is six to eight active M'catters that live in and around the Portland area. They might answer to the call. Let's give them a chance to catch up to the thread.

Geez Bert, "spectacles" really shows your age and he's got it right with "contacts," much more modern. Plus then you don't need prescription sunglasses.

And if you see Eugene, tell him I said hello.

Hey, Easy Rider! I live in Vancouver, Washington. Vancouver is just across the border from Portland, Oregon. I'd love to meet you and your wife! Mudjack is right about the scenery in the Columbia river gorge. Gee, if I could arrange it I'd take you there myself.

But what would be fun would be to have a song circle. I have the room at my house, and if the weather's nice enough we can do it outside on our deck. If you know when you'll be here and want to meet folks all in one shot, the song circle might be the way to go. Let me know,

Margarita:

I'd LOVE to join a song circle, if someone would lend me a guitar, and to meet you and other Mudcatters. We arrive, Portland, Aug. 17 and depart Aug. 31. We want to see the sights and do some day hiking, and we will spend four or five days in Eugene, with our friends there.

We are thinking of relocating to Oregon, maybe Eugene. We are getting real tired of the rat race in NYC. Does anybody know about the job market for Programmers/Systems Analysts and for Dance Therapists in Oregon? I've heard it's good to live in Washington (no income tax) and shop in Oregon (no sales tax). Is that true?

I don't want to impose, but it would be real nice to stay overnight with some of my Mudcat friends, while we are there. I know I'm a stranger, and I don't want anybody to feel awkward.

Thanx, EZR

Hey, Easy. My husband and I went to Canada and stayed with Musicman! We'd never met before so my husband Jack was apprehensive. But as it turns out, we both enjoyed our stay very much. I'd be happy to put you up. But you'd have to put up with us! :o)

No state income tax in Washington. However, if you work in Oregon, they will take Oregon state income tax out of your check. And what do you get for it? Nothing, nada, zip. It is so irksome. Live and work in Washington is a better deal. Yes, shop in Oregon where there is no sales tax.

Beaverton Oregon is the computer center around here. Maybe there's more in Vancouver than I know. Dance therapist? Is that like physical therapy using dance? Never heard of it. But then I never heard of music therapy until last year. (Musicman is a music therapist)

I'm sure that between the 17th and the 31st I can arrange a song circle! Talk to you soon,

I see our good folks are keeping you in tune with the local ooplaws.(pun intended)Now I don't mean to start a civil war here, but have you noticed how quiet the OR folks are about there beautiful state? Us WA folks are real proud of our no income tax sstus. But not to many years ago, there they had all their offramps closed coming from Calif. The last time I went to Barbara's. OR failed to put a sighn on the Salem off ramp, So when I got to the CA state line I turned around.

Hey, EZR, our best friend lives in Portland and grew up there. He just moved back there last year and can't sing its praises enough. We are seriously looking into the job market, too.

Here is one resource I've found, which you might tale a look at, there are several more, esp. for high tech OR Jobs

There is another Mudcatter, on the ethnic crossover thread, who is leaving NM for Portland.

Good luck,

Yeah, that's me leaving NM for Portland. I'm taking off at the end of Aug. and will be staying w/friends (& housesitting) in Eugene for the first half of Sept. before heading up to Portland. I was going to post something when I first saw this thread but I didn't want to be guilty of threadcreep for mere personal reasons. Thanks for the excuse. *BG*

But I was planning on starting a thread at some point asking about song circles, jams, etc. in Portland. I've only been checking out the Mudcat for the past month or so but it's been really fun. It'd be nice to meet some of you guys and share some songs.

Anyway, thanks for the job link, katlaughing. Should be useful. I'll start a new thread about song circles (and maybe rental info) as the time draws nearer.

P.S. Wish me luck. I've got my very first recording session in a real studio tonight. : )

Yes it's beautiful here. Beats the heck out of Michigan. And Washingtonians, you may pay our income tax, but you don't pay our sales tax, 'cause we ain't got one, so maybe it's a trade, hmmn?
I spect we could put you up a night, EZ & co. Thing is, we don't have our plans for the end of the month sorted yet. So give me a few days - we just got back from Michigan - and I'll know better. It's also possible there will be other traveling Mudcatters in the area, so we should try to coordinate something.

I'm coming that direction around Thanksgiving, so I'll mark this thread and refer back to it.

A production I co-wrote with a friend is done frequently at OMSI during the holidays, "Return of the Light" -- a mixed media celebration of the winter solstice. They reprised it last winter and I think he's doing some rewrites and updating and it will be performed again this winter solstice season. I'd love to see it again, but don't know if I can get out at both Thanksgiving and Christmas. But if anyone's in the area and it comes up, you know one of the writers...Ta-DAH!

Date: 03 Aug 99 - 12:07 PM

I told this to Frank a while ago but here we go again...

This thread drives me nuts. Why? I miss the Oregon coast like crazy. Here's the details:

THIRTY-TWO years ago (pushin' 33) Carol and I left Chicago with everything we cared about loaded into a VW bus (1967). We headed West to find the place where we wanted to live. We had our records, books, cat and dog. We hit every Western state before settling in Depoe Bay, Oregon. There we found a house on a cliff looking South toward the town. It rented for $60.00 a month. We also paid that same amount for a storefront right downtown on the ocean. That became THE FOLK ART SHOP. Sold records, banjos, dulcimers, books, and all manner of home made folkart items. To make a long story short, we lasted there about 2 years---singing in Lincoln City and Newport--trying to sell things and ideas folkie. NOBODY came in to buy. Nobody knew what we were doing. Very few gigs. Eventually we headed back to Chicago and the Midwest where making a living with folk music was doable in a beatnik sort of way and travel was easier. (The East Coast was closer now.) But a love for the Oregon Coast will be a part of me as long as I live.

If folks like the people talking in this thread had been in Oregon back then---if places to hang and hear and play the music had been there----if anybody who knew who Woody & Pete were (and the ones who did know of them didn't think that to know them meant I was a Communist or worse)---well, I might still be there. I came to love walking the beaches in the fog and rain. Now, when it rains here in Illinois, I get nostalgic for Oregon. I go out in it and walk and pretend that the fog here is obscuring tidal flats at he base of Cape Foulweather and hundreds of tide pools filled with unbelievable forms of life.

I do hope you good people out there know fully what a paradise you are so lucky to inhabit. Here's one guy and gal who are truly glad we climbed down those cliffs when we had the energy and the health to do it.

And if you folks looking for alien life in space would only look once at the base of Cape Foulweather, I'm sure you would find all that you search for -- and all without first having to discover warp drive.

Now I know I'm going to start WW III. East of the Cascades, WHERE I LIVE, The sun shines and every one is always smiling. They can't help it, you see, the wind blows all the time at such force, you always have a smile on you're face, We're actually trying to talk and and wind deforms your mouth. When it is raining or cloud covered in Portland, we get the wind and it's been blowing for six months. Now armed with that peice of knowledge, that means the sun has'nt shined in Portland for six months. I've been to several song circles in Portland(Sandybobs)to find rain, I say, "Sun's shining out our way" and the heads snap like....Really?

Art-- I lived in Oregon for just a year and sometimes I find myself aching in the same way for the Oregon coast. I absolutely loved taking my dogs to the beach and walking with the surf pounding and the mists rolling in. I think if I'd lived that direction instead of Portland I'd still be there. I might head out that direction again some day. My son is in Seattle now and he and his lady want me out on the Left Coast, so ... maybe in a couple of years. (Kat, if you reveal my plans to leave wyoming sometime in my lifetime, I'll be steamed! ;-] )

Isn't it wonderful and poignant how some places just burrow into you and always create a longing in your heart when you remember them? I hardly ever get nostalgic for Santa Fe -- except for the wonderful weather which meant I could ride my bike just about the year round -- but I often feel lonesome for Oregon.

Easy Rider,

Wow! A thread about Oregon! This is a fun one for me- I live in Oregon and coordinate a Career Resource Center!

I'm in Coos Bay, on the south coast. Don't know if you'll be coming this far south, but lots of great outdoor activities, and some good music happening. Feel free to e-mail me for details or if you have questions about the Coos Bay area.

In addition to the Oregon Employment Department web page that Katlaughing offered, I'd like to suggest checking out:

http://olmis.emp.state.or.us/OLMISHOM.HTML

This is the web site of the Oregon Labor Market Information System, and provides LOTS of labor market information for the state of Oregon. Incidentally, within the next year, the Coos Bay area will be the newest site of 1-800Support, (www.1-800support.com) a call center expected to employ up to 500.

Enjoy your visit to Oregon!

Very interesting. Computer careers in Eugene. We have a newly built Hyundai disc manufacturing plant in West Eugene. (They've recently been in trouble for being reluctant to hire women and minorities.) Right downtown, in the old Bon Marche building (where I used to get kicked off the escalator on my way home from St. Mary's Lower School) is the Symantec company. Both of these are targets for the monthly riots put on by the local anarchists. Springfield, right next door, has the Sony plant. (The anarchists don't dare show their hooded faces in Springfield.)

The University of Oregon built a research park near the river, but it's having a difficult time getting tenants.

Parts of the city want to be friendly to high-tech companies. Actually the place is booming in spite of itself. Property values are skyrocketing, so get here soon.

You can go almost everywhere on the bike paths, this being the most bicycle-friendly city in North America.

Sam Bond's Garage - used to be a garage in the Whiteaker neighborhood. Now it's a tavern, and they have an open mike type of set-up on Sundays, especially for folk-irish-celtic music types. I would have to sneak in there wearing a disguise because there are people who hang around outside who want to kill me. You would be safe though, as long as you don't look like a yuppie or a cop.

There are dance companies, dance troupes, ballet, square dancers, and it's possible to major in Dance (or something like that) at the University of Oregon. There's the Hult Center for the Performing Arts, The Lord Leebrick Theater, and the Cuthbert Ampitheater (outdoor venue) all of which you should check out.

One hour west is the Pacific Ocean, now more crowded than Art remembers, but still magnificent. One hour east is the Cascade mountains, also magnificent all year long.

It rained all through the nineties, so I'm expecting sunshine during the otts.

We also have the finest police force in the entire nation!

Oh, Art, it was nifty. She *claimed* to be jet-lagged, but boy I sure wish I could sing half as good as that when I'm NOT jet-lagged. She was late getting into Portland, and the opening act had a few nervous moments wondering if they were going to run out of practiced material... but Anne showed up and was wonderful.
Did a wide spread of songs, some hers and some others, and kept us all on the rollercoaster. She sang "Never Grow OLd" and we all joined in, and the little methodist church filled up with harmony; she did David Roth's song about the hispanic guy with cancer (Juan Juarez maybe?) whose whole circle of friends shaved their head in support of him and you could see people wiping their eyes; she did her song, Follow that Road, and you could have heard a pin drop, she got a howl of laughter from the audience and much applause when she did B&B's Orange Cocoa Cake a capella as fast as she could (that's where the jet lag showed up).
She sang Dave Messengil's Orphan train, and ended with two Blessings songs, it was a great night. Frank was pretty nervous about her being late, I forgot to look and see if he had any fingernails left at the end of the night. He's a sweetie, and amazingly enthusiastic, and boy, does he love this music. I had a sudden lightbulb click when she was singing this Tom Paxton song I didn't know, something about how I could never leave you... and I was reflecting on why I wouldn't sing that song, or some of the others, because I believe when a relationship is over, you set it down and get on with your life, and not linger... like many of her songs did, and AHA,
I all of a sudden realized she must be the Annie of "Annie's song" (as in, "now Annie's going to sing her song called take me back again").
Blessings,
Barbara

Another opinion of the concert...WONDERFUL. The first time I'd heard her, hopefully not the last. Frank is really to be commended for making something like that happen in a place the size of Toledo, on a Thursday night. Great going, and thanks again Frank.

Thanks for the reports folks.--She and her first spouse, Jan Burda, and now, her partner for this era, Mark Moss, were (and are) friends of ours. There's a 99 & 44/100% chance that she is NOT the Annie in Paxton's fine song. But Anne hills was a part of a fine trio for a time with Tom and Bob Gibson. It was called THE BEST OF FRIENDS.
I've a closely guarded tape of a grand set they did at Holstein's in Chicago on 2/16/85.

And isn't "FOLLOW THAT ROAD" a wonderful song?

Boy, it sure is, Art.
Follow that road... back through time, back through distance back to me.....
I liked her song about the (with the, too) Tibetan bell. LOTs of good songs, and a wonderful voice.
So when are YOU coming this way? Blessings,
Barbara

Anne gave Nancy and I a copy of the new CD with Michael Smith and her, called "Paradise Lost and Found", just the two of them with new versions of some of the older stuff, just beautifully done, Spoon River, The Dutchman, Patterson Summer, Silken Dreams, We Become Birds and others. Also Art, I missed out on the auction, can't seem to get very far with this dinosauer 386. I never tire of singing Nightriders Lament, but do a great job of screwin up the yodel, but after hearing Jerry Jeff's yodel, I don't feet too bad. Got to find a way of hearing your Night Rider's Lament. I finally figured out why I don't write too many songs. Firstly lack of talent and secondly there are tons and tons of great songs just waiting to be embraced...

There is a song in a minor key for which I cannot remember the composer nor the title. But the chorus is: "Oh Iiiiiii, wanna fall in love . . . . with you" Anyone know what it is? I know, the lyrics are schmaltzy. But it's a beautiful song. thanks

Gee, I just got home from Oregon on Monday, and this thread is making me nostalgic. The high points were the song circle (thanks a lot, Margo), watching whales at sunset at Shore Acres State Park, and Much Ado About Nothing at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival at Ashland. And the Oregonians don't treat us Californians TOO badly (as long was we promise not to move there permanently).

I'm refreshing this thread because I am visiting the area of Portland and Seattle for June 3-11, 00. I don't expect a song cirlcle to be set up for me! But would appreciate any info on happenings during that time. My friend Michael Mandrell (guitarist) is touring that area doing gigs from mid-May until mid-June, so happenings within that time frame would also be welcome. I can't wait!!

Hey, if any of you ever get down to Coos Bay, you should check out the stern section of the New Carissa. It was something watching those nimrod coasties dropping napalm into her.

As a resident "coastie" of Coos Bay, I'd just to remind Amergin that it was the "nimrod" government dropping the explosives.

LOL!!! Rosebrook!! You're right, it was the navy, sorry. The whole thing was a SNAFU. As a member of the clean up crew, I was told to do twenty different things by twenty different bosses. There was no communication between them. BTW, Rosebrook, I am hanging my head in shame.....

Thx, Margo, those are pretty good lyrics. Maybe one of these days I'll write my own from the insider's point of view. The Carissa spill wasn't nearly as bad as the carrion crews (news crews) made out. Alot of our time was spent "looking" busy not actually "being" busy.
