    Peculiar forces converge in Portland, Oregon




    WACKY WEB WEEK

    Peculiar forces converge in Portland, Oregon


    By Kathleen Atkins
    A campaign to "Keep [My City] Weird" might have originated in Austin, Texas, but we in the Northwest region of the country have no doubt that the people of Portland, Oregon are the most enthusiastic competitors in the odd contest. And many Portlanders are proud of this reputation. They promote it. This week's video illustrates the case of a flame-shooting bagpiper playing the "Star Wars" theme while balancing on a BB-8 droid. Would such an event be regarded (benignly) as unremarkable in your town? We think not. Next question: how did that BB-8 droid go off-script from its as-yet-unreleased Star Wars 7 film "The Force Awakens" and show up in Portland? Weird.

    Off-script indeed, when the feature film clip of 'Battle Scenes' can't spell 'Separatist' correctly on-screen, but the source of the clip apparently could.
