100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

New Music Video from Father John Misty (and more)

I'm pretty sure that's Ron Jeremy at 3:05 in and again 20 seconds later.

That's apparently how Sub Pop recording artist Father John Misty (Joshua Tillman) rolls.

Check out this complete non-sequitur of a music video where scenes change as often as FJM's dance moves. (See our Sasquatch! Music Festival photos of the artist for more on that)

In fact, the only correlation between this video for "I'm Writing a Novel" and FJM is that it appears to be a pretty good represenation of what it's like to be inside his head 24 hours a day. They guy is a brilliant songwriter but he is also as quirky as they come. Or at least that's the persona he puts on. Videos like this, well, they just help solidify that notion.

Still, it's a great song.

And for something a little darker, check out French electro-pop group SALM's video for "Prophet 21" from their upcoming album Endless Stairs. And when I say it's a little darker, I mean someone gets curb-checked.
