Portland geek meet-ups!

Two gatherings of Portland geekdom coming up tonight and tomorrow:

* Tonight: The triumphant return of Stephanie Stricklen! She's a well-liked KGW Channel 8 anchor who's been on maternity leave, and keeping a lot of us entertained via Twitter during her early adventures as a new mother.

Her main KGW job is as host of the 7 p.m. Live on the Square, so called because it's both live and broadcast from Pioneer Courthouse Square downtown. And a bunch of us will be in the Square to cheer her on when she broadcasts again.

* Tomorrow: Raising Arizona. The first post-KUFO edition of the Cort and Fatboy Midnight Movie*. Doors will open at 10 Friday night, the film will start around 11, there will be beer and food and hanging-out, there will be Rick Emerson as a guest, and there will be more. All for just $3 admission.

* Fatboy Explains The Name: "okay, so: Midnight movie USED to start at midnight. 1) OLCC bitched about long-movies pushing past 2:30 2) people fell asleep. ...So we moved em to 11pm. You're still in the theater at midnight, hence we stuck with the alliterative name. I'm also not fat."

    So the meme was to "ruin" a Star Trek character by changing one letter in their name, but... ...maybe something else would happen if you did?…
