Prepare for #ELGL14 by learning about who is attending. Find out if you’ll be surrounded by soft talkers, loud eaters, and finger biters or whether you’ll be surrounded by the best in local government.

(Complete the sentence) #ELGL14 is…..

…like that kid in high school who was weird, really into SciFi, incredibly smart, and despite all this quite popular and entertaining.

Registration for #ELGL14 cost $60. If you could use that $60 to buy something else, what would you buy?

Probably beer and cigars. Or maybe groceries, but realistically, beer and cigars.

​If #ELGL14 spun off into a music festival, what bands (dead or alive) would you like to see?

  • Radiohead
  • A Tribe Called Quest
  • Peter Gabriel
  • Steely Dan

I would call this festival One of These Things is Not Like the Other.

​During your time in Portland for #ELGL14, how do you plan on “Keeping Portland Weird?”

I plan on stalking the Darth Vader Unicycle Bagpipe Man
