Goodbye Glenn Beck, Says Jon Stewart...Hilarious

Jon Stewart dons his fake glasses and pays tribute to Glenn Beck's departure.

Posted By on Fri, Apr 8, 2011 at 7:04 PM

As you may have heard, Fox News television personality/conspiracy theorist Glenn Beck is leaving the network soon. If you hadn't heard that, let me give you a moment to let that news settle.

OK, good. Last night, Jon Stewart bid farewell to Beck with this tribute...and it's excellently funny. And only slightly crazier than the real thing.

Some UConn Fan Just Called and Threatened Me With Violence!

College basketball gets some people really riled up.

Sometimes people call newspaper reporters to say, "Hey, nice job on your article!"

But most of the time, they call and say things like what I just heard from a guy who dropped me a line about 10 minutes ago about this week's Left Field column.

"Do you know anything about UConn basketball?" he asked.

"Yeah, of course," I said. Because I do. I love Kemba Walker and the bunch, actually.

"Then how dare you say the things you did about Jim Calhoun, one of the greatest men to ever walk the earth. You think this Hall of Fame coach will really be remembered for recruiting violations?"

Here's the weird thing. That column -- which is a humor column, by the way -- never even named Jim Calhoun, and only included one sentence that referenced him. But the clearly well-adjusted man on the other end cared not for that explanation, opting rather to explain that "he's seen" my picture in the paper (don't look, it's not there) and he was going to track me down and that I should be ready for him.

I laughed. But he wasn't joking. He seriously wants to rumble over a tongue-in-cheek sports column.

"I'll be the guy wearing all the UConn shit," he said, before calling me a few names and making some moderately terrifying threats, as I tried to thank him for reading the paper, because I'm a terribly nice person, even when someone wants to punch me.

Let me make clear that I think UConn fans are a generally affable bunch and this guy isn't representative of the Husky faithful. But damn dude, it's just a sports column. The Final Four is great, but let's all settle down, OK?

Alex Trebek: New University of Oregon Football Announcer

He's good on Jeopardy, but better when he calls Oregon football games.

Posted By on Thu, Mar 24, 2011 at 7:47 PM

No, he's not really the new announcer for the Ducks, but he totally should be. You'll agree after taking a look at this:

The Big Lebowski Costume Winners

At a screening of "The Big Lebowski" in Bend, Oregon, these folks won the costume contest.

Posted By on Sun, Jan 9, 2011 at 7:31 AM

If you weren't there at the Tower tonight to watch The Big Lebowski with 400-something other people who may have become your new best friends, you also missed an incredible costume contest, which kicked off the weirdly, awesomely, justifiably well-attended (and sold-out) event.

Here are a couple videos from the Walter and Dude categories of the contest. Sadly, I didn't capture any images of the "freestyle" competition, which included a Big Lebowski, complete with wheel chair and Phillip-Seymour-Hoffman lookalike assistant. Seriously.

Top 10 Reasons Bend Needs a Skatepark

Posted By on Wed, Jan 5, 2011 at 7:10 PM

home_overpass_shots_532w.jpg

For our annual Top 10 Issue, we polled some of our local people organizations for their personal top 10 lists. My favorite came from the folks of the Division Street Stakepark Project.

Behold, Top 10 Reasons Bend Needs a Skatepark:

1. Without it, our per capita consumption of PBR makes us look like a bunch of redneck booze hounds.

2. Because I can only imagine how awesome BMC's "what if" radio campaign is going to be after the park opens.

3. How else will we ever hear the words "The pregnant man pulled off a sick 900" uttered?

4. Because I've invested in Krylon stock.

5. So that Boneyard Beer's Tony "Chicken Head" Lawrence can finally make his Peralta Porter for the opening ceremonies.

6. Because the homeless look bored, and need to get some exercise.

7. So that clients of the marijuana co-op on Division Street have a place to chill out and use terms like "whooooooah" and/or "niiiiiiiiiiiiiice."

8. If we don't, then the DMV will try to take the spot instead.

9. Because the local Canada geese population apparently need a new place to poop.

10. Because Redmond is not cooler than Bend.

This New Source Staffer is Kind of a Bummer

GI Joe stops by our office...and kind of weirds everyone out.

Posted By on Fri, Dec 3, 2010 at 7:20 PM

So yeah, this guy came into the office to whip us into shape as some sort of a newspaper bootcamp charade. Yeah...not really feeling his motivational style. And he appears to be made out of plastic, which is troubling.
