  • The Hottest Woman on the Web: Iraq ain't no Disneyland and more

    It's All in the Finger of the Beholder the chick with the most clicks.Who's the sexiest woman in the world? Upfront has our own opinion (we'll get to that later) but according to the men's on-line magazine FHM, it's Megan Fox, the 21-year-old star of the Transformers movies. The shapely brunette, notable for her blue eyes and plentiful tattoos, beat out three Jessicas (Biel, Alba and Simpson), two Jennifers (Aniston and Love-Hewitt) and a swarm of Nicoles, Lindsays, Beyonces, Keiras, Charlizes, Halles and Giselles, plus a Fergie, to take top honors in the highly unscientific, on-line poll.

  • Our Picks for the Week of 5/2-5/8

    Brook Adams & His Swingin' Marmalukeys friday 2 This acoustic band plays an amusing blend of "cowboy gypsy party music." And if you're wondering, yes, we were inclined to give them a pick due to their pleasantly old timey name. But hey, the tunes are pretty good as well. 8pm. $3. Silver Moon Brewing Co., 24 Greenwood Ave. 388-8331.

  • Back With the Seeds

    Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds Dig Lazarus Dig!!! Mute Records If I'm stumbling out of 7B (a quintessential drinking hole) and making my way down Avenue B, it's a record like Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!! that flows through my head. The latest from Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds seems to bring me to that place - New York City. It opens with a drunken melody reminiscent of David Johansen circa 1973, closes with the Lou Reed inspired "More News From Nowhere," and in between travels across several sounds that are so Manhattan you can almost smell the street.

  • Pole Pedal Party: Gearing up for the annual spring celebration and Smith Rock routes

    PPP Katy Van Dis Riding the LightningIt is about time to start (if you haven't already) thinking about, talking about, and gearing up for the Pole Pedal Paddle, Bend's famous multi-sport race. The first time I came to Bend in 1998 was to compete in the PPP. With the exception of the run, most of the events were new to me. I was just learning how to skate ski, had ridden a road bike just a handful of times, and had never been in a kayak. I spent the week before the race rounding up gear from my wife Molly's garage. I was able to get her family's 1967 Peugot road bike to fit my lanky frame and spent a couple days before the race attempting to learn how to paddle a white water kayak. I will never forget the excitement of that first race when the gun fired and I raced up the hill to click into some borrowed alpine skis.
