I heard from an old friend this morning, one of those "here's my new email address" type of emails you send out when you get too much spam and have to start over with a new address. Anyway, she was an actress and owned a theater group in Corvallis before moving north to Portland. She's currently working on an online sitcom that features the cycling culture in Portland, it's called "The Bicyclist" and the episodes are 4-8 minutes in length.
Check it out, it's pretty entertaining:
There are 30 episodes to watch, so the next rainy afternoon you are bored, get caught up on it! It sounds like they are working on a feature length adaptation of it, I hope it works out for them, it's fun to see the bike culture and our area featured. Tell your friends about it too, it would be excellent to see this gain popularity. Here's the web site: http://www.thebicyclist.tv/index.htm
