Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
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.

Friday Mixtape: Double-Threats

Posted By on Fri, May 22, 2015 at 10:05 AM

Lots of musicians publish tell-all memoirs. Some tell a little more than others, like The Dirt, the collective autobiography of Motley Crue, which is a thrilling, though somewhat tawdry read. But those books are often written by ghostwriters, not the artists themselves. I recently found a copy of Woody Guthrie's lost novel, which he wrote in 1947, but publishers only bothered with come 2013. And though it's rarer to publish a novel instead of a memoir, he's not the only songwriter that made the leap to literary fiction. Artists like Leonard Cohen, Patti Smith, Ben Weasel, Dr. Frank, Nick Cave, and Richard Hell have all published novels as well. Sounds like a mixtape to me.
