I traveled to Mongolia to find big fish that also reflect Khan’s spirit. Taimen (hucho hucho taimen) are the world’s largest salmonids. They grow to more than five feet long, and they hunt prey in packs.

First there was couch surfing, then thanks to the web and social media there was CouchSurfing.org, which let people all over the world find couches to crash on. Now savvy travelers looking for a unique and local place to stay in Eugene or across the planet can use Airbnb.com to find a room, studio or cottage for their vacation getaway.

Beer and ballet. The combination is so Eugene it’s a wonder this isn’t already a decades-long tradition. It certainly isn’t any more unusual than watching cyclists smoke cigarettes as they lumber down Willamette Street, for example, so an event which brings both of these things together should be something that will please and amuse many.

Upstart Crow Studios holds a noble vision: to provide a place where all kids, regardless of income, training or physical ability can perform. No child who feels the magic pull of the theater is turned away for any reason. Nurturing children in the arts has been a passion and a pledge. Now, Upstart Crow is adding grown ups.

It’s like nothing else you have ever seen. Largely Butoh (Japanese avant garde) dance, other parts live music, animation, portraiture and stunning lighting techniques, Degenerate Art Ensemble (DAE) is an impressive display of props, visuals and music — and if any one element falls out of balance, the effect could be ruined or enhanced, depending on how you want to look at it.

It’s no secret that Sam Bond’s Garage is a venue where Eugeneans can go to experience lively bands (both local and touring) put on first-rate shows.

If this brewery only produced 10 barrels of beer, as its name might imply, Eugeneans would never have heard of it.

In the old days, human beings got drunk on unsanitary, bacteria-ridden, fermented pulp provided by agricultural negligence and elated discovery.

Crux Fermentation Project, which opened its doors June 30, sits on an 11-acre plot of land adjacent to Highway 97 smack in the center of Bend.

As somewhat of a beer virgin, I met up with part owner and brewery manager Jason Carriere to find out why Falling Sky Brewing’s beer has Eugene buzzing.

There’s a bevy of crazy cheap beer out there that sud-suckers pretend to hate — you know, the industry standards like PBR, Hamm’s and other such swill.

In ancient civilizations, the transformation of sugar into alcohol was a ritual performed by diviners and seers.

Somehow the world didn’t quite understand the Nazis in mid-1938. 

Then Herschel Grynszpan, a teenage German-born Polish Jew living in Paris, found out his family had been among 12,000 German/Polish Jews arrested, stripped of their property and citizenship, then deported from Hanover for locations unknown in Poland. Grynszpan was young; he was angry and he wanted revenge.

Any Oregon Bach Festival audience member could list the instruments she expects to see on the stage at Silva or Soreng or Beall — strings, of course, and the piano, some brass, woodwinds, percussion, maybe a triangle, if we’re stretching things, or a xylophone or glockenspiel. But this year, one more instrument joins the ranks: the harmonica.

Storm Large may be a star, but she’s a Portland kind of star. She’s a rock/punk star singer with her band the Balls and a raunchy cabaret-style singer at regular clubs in P-town.

I’m the first to admit that I am not totally up on the way this whole wedding thing works. I ducked out at the last minute on my own trip to the altar. And many of my friends are single; apparently the rest think my wedding unwillingness is contagious, and this has led to a pleasant dearth of bridesmaid gigs.

A good wedding DJ might go unnoticed, so effectively and smoothly is he keeping things rolling. A bad wedding DJ, on the other hand, will ruin your night and, at worst, immortalize your shitty time by going viral on YouTube. But a great wedding DJ can make your dreams come true.

Eugene resident Bethany Coleman married her husband, Luke, in spring of 2010. The couple didn’t have a lot of money to spend on the wedding, but they wanted something authentic, pretty and vintage. In preparing for the ceremony, Coleman steeped her custom-fitted dress in a bathtub full of black tea.
