Fave Reports / Five Years - Volume 1: Brent in Portland

Doc here, a man who some say is 12.8 in meatball years, with the first of the "Fave Reports/Five Years" submissions from you, the good readers of The Journal.

And of course, who better to lead things off than my good friend and close colleague, Brent in Portland.

The Journal was born from a conversation Brent and I had on a Thursday night at The Paris Theatre in Portland in the summer of 2009. We were both of the opinion that this thing of ours was bigger than what was being talked about in a couple of Yahoo Groups that had a slightly less local scope. But the conversations were few and far between in those Groups, and we both agreed the scene needed a national voice.

And that was the start of The Journal... Thank you sir.

Here is Brent's forward, followed by the first of two of his favorite reports.  Enjoy.
