The Daily Buzz

The Ol Dirty congratulates itself on a job well done. How truly Meta. How truly insignificant. Thanks for the memories, Jen.
The Matrix meets Charlottes web in one of the most obnoxious flash animations Ive ever seen. Apparently the makers of the Meatrix thought they could make a salient point about the horrors of factory farming with poor animation and some of the worst voice acting heard outside a Final Fantasy video game. Kudos.
First Vice Magazine rips off the OC with its pale imitation of our Hate issue. Now theyre ripping off shudder the Voice with their far superior Sex issue. Apparently those obnoxious, ether addicted clowns cant get enough third-rate UO campus media!

    That’s right, it was fuckin’ Jim Spagg. I remember him prancing around naked every once in a while on his show, which was horribly scarring for a 14-year-old whose sole desire was to see some naked female flesh. I’d usually turn the channel to a fitness machine infomercial at that point.

  2. Danimal says:

    The Portland nudist show was run by the late Jim Spagg. It was alright as long as he kept his own body out of it. Not exactly Adonis.

  3. Pete says:

    I don’t know about the porn thing, but Goad ran a ‘zine in Portland until a few years ago. Production slowed after he went to prison. But he was the talk of the town after he published a “rape” issue. I think Powell’s refused to stock it…

    He’s kind of funny, kind of racist and kind of bald. But it’s good to see that he’s landed at Vice, where most of the writers only manage one out of three. He wrote a book a few years back called “Redneck Manifesto” and he was booked at least once on Bill Maher’s show.

  4. Clint T. says:

    ROFL.. Yea Tyler, I was wondering the same thing myself. Wasn’t the show called Spags or something like that..? Nothing quite like public access when I was a young teenager.

    Oh yea, and “accidently” my ass Ty.

  5. Tyler says:


    Isn’t Jim Goad the guy who had the porn-lite show on Portland cable access? I have fond memories of accidentally catching that show at 3:00 am when I was about 14. Sweet, sweet memories.

    I seem to remember him being on an episode of Inside Edition in the late ’90s too, due to a protracted feud he was having with his neighbor.

  6. Tyler says:

    Hey, I consider us first rate. I’m just comparing us to the awesome journalistic brilliance of Vice Magazine, the only other publication to have the balls to write about “hate fucking.”

    The new double should be online tomorrow. Damn, it looks good, too.

  7. Clint T. says:

    Agreed Tim, the OC gets second rate status. Also the ‘ol Dirty should understand.. praise sounds better when it comes from someone other than yourself.

  8. Timothy says:

    Hey man, the OC is at at least second rate! And where is another issue? I hunger for it. HUNGER.

  9. Pete says:

    Portland’s own Jim Goad has an article in the sex issue.
