Today’s Epiphany

I recently told a friend that I was moving to Seattle in May.  She immediately told me “You have to see this video then.  It’s about Portland, but really it’s the same as Seattle.”

“PORTLANDIA” INTRO TO VIDEO

“Do you remember the nineties?”
“Yeah.”
“You know… people were talking about getting piercings and tribal tattoos.”
“Yeah.”
“People were singing about saving the planet, forming bands.”
“Yeah.”
“There’s a place where that exists and still has a reality.  And I’ve been there.”
“Where is it?”
“Portland.”
“Portland?!”
“Yeah.”

She was right.  I think I saw each and every person in this video on my last visit to… Seattle.  The dream of the 90’s is still alive in Seattle AND now in Portland.

Which…in turn, means, that the hipsters in Portland (and Williamsburg, Brooklyn) actually began in Seattle.  Epiphany had, mystery solved.   Good thing I kept my flannel.

    • Yes, I have seen the 1890’s version. HILARIOUS! I’ll probably post at a later date. Most likely, i will fit into this 1990’s landscape. I just found a box of my clothing from the 90’s in my old closet at my parent’s house. Talk about timing! lol
