Our Deconstruction Project

Posted By on Fri, Oct 28, 2011 at 12:03 AM

Downtown denizens have probably taken note of our ongoing construction project here at the Source. We've fielded a few questions already about just what the hell is going on at 704 Georgia, so we figured we'd go right to the source of all this consternation, our contractor Paul Biskup, to explain why the building seems to be disappearing one brick at a time.

In case you can't make out Paul's response from the video due to the ambient traffic noise (who knew cars made so much noise) he's explaining that most of the bricks on the building were essentially falling off.

So to be clear, the Source is not, moving, closing or otherwise disappearing. We're just cleaning house and hope to have everything back in place before the snow flies.

Redmond Horse Business Wins Venture Capital Competition

Posted By on Thu, Oct 20, 2011 at 10:09 PM

This year's Bend Venture Capital Conference winner is more Butch Cassidy than Bill Gates.  A Redmond horse equipment manufacturer took home the top prize, a $250,000 cash investment, at the Bend Venture Conference, organizers announced on Thursday afternoon.

RES Equine reportedly wooed potential investors with its equine safety equipment that has high margins and global appeal, according to Economic Development of Central Oregon, which produced the event.

The annual entrepreneurial competition, which is held in downtown Bend at the Tower Theater, drew some 300 investors, entrepreneurs and business professionals. This year’s event also included a new concept competition funded by Bend Broadband. The competition awarded a Portland inventor $10,000 for a software program that helps decode hard to pronounce names.

If You Like Bikinis and Toby Keith...

Posted By on Thu, Oct 13, 2011 at 5:56 PM

Toby Keith's lo-fi ode to America's most infamous adult beverage receptacle, the red Solo cup with cameo from the Red Rocker who happens to be celebrating a birthday today.

This ditty isn't going to win a CMA, but it's worth watching if only to puzzle over the montage of disparate cameos, Craig Ferguson, Carrot Top and Ted Nugent all in the same video. Wtf?You need to use a flashplayer enabled browser in order to view this video
