bring the Ruckus to MS
through Blitz Ladd

On the bike, every member of the Ruckus Test Team knows to go big and blow up early or go home. It’s with this same spirit that the team is taking on the Bike MS 150, a 150-mile fundraiser to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The goal of the ride is to raise awareness as well as $2000 for the cause.

We are hosting a night of controlled inebriation complete with games, possible dance party, lots of beer and door prizes at Blitz-Ladd on July 18th. The bike community has a big heart and we know you do, too! So come out and cause some Ruckus.

The raffle prize list is turning out to be a good one. Details soon!

If you aren't able to make it out to the party and would still like to fight MS you can donate directly here http://main.nationalmssociety.org/site/TR?pg=team&fr_id=10121&team_id=174570

PDX Python Monthly Meeting
Cloudability

tl;dr: Python Module Thunderdome, Pythonic Trivia, wear Halloween costume if you like, please RSVP: http://www.meetup.com/pdxpython/events/33445392

This Tuesday at 6:30pm at Urban Airship we'll be celebrating October with the Second Annual PDX Python MODULE THUNDERDOOOOOME. We still don't really know what the rules are, but it was fun last year so we're doing it again. :)

In the Thunderdome ring so far we have: Nick Wilson, Dan Colish, Chris McDonald and Kyle Jones. Are you up for a round in the dome? Pick a module in stdlib or PyPI and bring a 5 minute Michel's Module of the Month-style presentation to the meeting. All are welcome to compete! If you want to make sure no one else is doing your module, let me know ([email protected] / @pythonchelle) what you're thinking and I'll find out.

After the module throw down, Rob Bednark has created a Python-themed trivia game for us to play!

*** New this year: The Dome is close-ish to Halloween, and some competitors have talked about dressing up like the module they're representing. Why not? Dressing up is fun, and fun things are fun. (Still not sure if a costume will affect the results.) I am going to wear my Halloween costume, which has nothing to do with Python or modules, but does include some fake blood and a couple props. I might also bring some Halloween candy. Feel free to wear a costume, bring some candy to share, or none of the above, but please do join us!

MST3K-style movie mocking of Twilight
through Cinema 21

"A glorious pairing of movies and comedy"--Entertainment Weekly "A truly awesome experience!"--Gawker "Hilarious comedians in front of your eyes, riffing on the movie way better than you and your friends ever could hope to."--Seattlest "The Twilight series is a particular specialty of Master Pancake Theater" -- Popwatch "An essential Austin experience" -- Austin Monthly

Smart, fast, and bust-a-gut funny, Master Pancake Theater's comedy (think MST3K mixed with Beavis and Butthead) has lead to years of sold out shows at the legendary Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas. The members of Master Pancake provide live comedy along with the movie, as well as hilarious skits and competitions. Now they're coming to Seattle's SIFF Cinema at the Uptown for a live skewering of the Pacific Northwest's greatest contribution to cinema, TWILIGHT!

This Lost Boys rehash about a teenager who moves to a small town in the Pacific Northwest and falls in with the vampire crowd features Kristen Stewart as the new kid in town, and Robert Pattinson as the centuries-old kid in town. Kidding aside, the acting is surprisingly good: Stewart is masterful at her one facial expression, and Pattinson has perfected the pale dead-guy mystique that he honed as Cedric Diggory in the Harry Potter series. And if you thought you'd seen every vampires-playing-baseball cliché in the book, just wait 'til you see how director Catherine Hardwicke breathes new life into that tired set piece.

Come out to Cinema 21 and let the bloodletting begin as Master Pancake sucks the life out of this preposterously ghastly modern teen "classic"!

Nerd Nite Vancouver #3 – I Dig Your Bones: Adventures in Forensic Anthropology
Kiggins Theatre

Nerd Nite is a monthly event that strives for an inebriated, salacious, yet deeply academic vibe. We aim to entertain, educate, elucidate, enlighten, and other things that start with “e.” Be there and be square.

Cost: $8.00* suggested cover at the door

Food and beer available in the theater.

This Nerd Nite will feature one talk:

A forensic anthropologist is on the front lines of speaking for those who can no longer speak for themselves. At this event, Dr. Veronica "Nici" Vance from the Oregon State Police Forensic Laboratory will talk about how skeletal remains are found, how bones are analyzed, and how victims can be identified. Discover how the differences and similarities in our bodies are reflected in our bones and tissues, and how they can tell a story of how someone lived…and died. Hear about new technologies being used to solve cold cases and identify missing persons throughout the nation, and what you can do to help.

Social Entrepreneurs Meetup - PDX
Hatch

Every third Thursday we hold our main Meetup at Hatch. The primary theme of our group is: Social Entrepreneurs - PDX: How we help each other solve business and social problems.

We consist of over 300 members of which 1/3 are business owners, or trying to start a business, 1/3 are freelancers that support small business, and 1/3 are folks with shared interests or who are networking.

We plan to hear five or six five minute pitches from social entrepreneurs.

Some nights we will hold Mastermind events where a specialist fields questions, other times we do Crowdsolving events where the attendees ask their questions or ask for help with a problem and the group provides feedback, ideas, connections, suggestions.

Overall, we are a fascinating group of highly motivated changemakers. Hatch is a great co-working space, so if you have not been there, this is a good time to check it out.

Cold beer and treats are always provided. Suggested Donation is $5 to $10

I look forward to seeing you there. If you would like to speak (not really a pitch, just casual information) about a local social enterprise or know someone who would, please contact me. (contact info is above)
