I’ve heard the “keep _____ weird” mantra attached to both Portland and Austin. Are there other cities that pride themselves with being weird?
When a city embraces a vision for being known for something, the community seems quicker to embrace those who perpetuate that vision who might otherwise be marginalized.
This kilt-wearing guy is a Portland hero for good reason. Quirky. Talented. Contributor to a culture of weird. There are a few YouTube videos out there that show him in action. For the moment, this is my favorite.
Unicycle, Darth Vader, bagpipes and fire. What’s not to like about this?!
