The Esozone festival, a "weekend event of fringe science and magick" featuring artist Paul Laffoley this weekend in Portland:
An alternative but not necessarily parallel universe is forming in Southeast Portland this weekend.
They call "Esozone: the other tomorrow" a festival, but don't expect corn dogs and Ferris wheels. Fringe thinkers, visionary artists and occult musicians from around the world will gather at Watershed, a rambling, ramshackle building near Sellwood for a weekend of … well … the inexplicable.

Of course, you still may be a little fuzzy about exactly what goes on. You're not alone.

Between all of our apps, streaming devices, Bluetooth speakers, and energy-sucking decorations, paying for utilities each month can be…brutal. In fact, the average household spends roughly $70 a month on the water bill alone. That number might not seem terribly significant, but when you add it up, that’s $840 a year — a pretty significant […]
Seems like no matter what kind of wireless earbud you buy, you’re sacrificing something: Sound for longevity, battery life for durability, the list goes on.
