    it's back! It's bigger! It's better!

    http://bangpdx.com/fpo/

    I've wanted to relaunch this for quite some time. Not only do all the videos on the old For Portlanders Only site have file formats that are out of date, I've amassed hundreds of additional clips since then that I've never gotten to share with anyone. The lack of a standard video format that works in all browsers has set back any plans to resurrect the site -- until now, when Flash is going extinct and a lot of the formats associated with it are going bye-bye as well. Now that I can focus on one format -- MP4, and HTML5 -- I can start back in on this again. These videos will be accessible by phones now! Yay!

    The plan is to try to upload one video per day, or as often as I can. Currently, the new site has five.

    http://bangpdx.com/fpo/2015/09/19/full-ramblin-rod-episode-september-1987/

    These were all on the original site, but they've been redone in a higher resolution (except for Rod). More to come!

    Sweet! I can't wait for the newscast intros you could dig up- try to get some from KOIN with the last set of graphics they had under the name Newsroom 6- I saw it on YT ages ago and can't find it again.

    If you want a better full episode of Rod, let me know. That one I sent you was done on my previous VHS-to-DVD machine. I think this newer one will let me do it better.

    On the non-video front, are we going to see any more entries in "What Powell's throws out"?

    There'll be one more eventually, with the leftovers of what I had. I'm not concentrating on putting articles on FPO for the time being, though.

    That Beer's Got Legs! -- Rainier 1981
    http://bangpdx.com/fpo/2015/09/26/that-beers-got-legs-rainier-1981/

    I’ve never seen this ad air on television in my lifetime, but I spotted a Rainier neon tavern sign not less than two years ago that depicted moving legs on a beer bottle. If it wasn’t for me, you’d never get such a reference…

    I haven't seen any of your sign-on videos. I guess they weren't in the original site.

    I like the KPTV sign-off. Do you know what TIME this aired? Like in the morning or something? I'd prefer they do this now instead of crappy informercials and sitcoms nobody watches.

    According to TV Guide, the times KPTV would shut off varied from 11 PM to 1:30 or 2 AM.

    Good work! FPO is one of my favorite parts of the site.
    Once I figure out where my VHS collection went, I might have some 90s material for you!

    I would appreciate that, KE7JFF.

    When this was on the original site, some parts were cut out. I decided to upload the uncut version this time, which has a NOVA commercial in the middle for a Mt. St. Helens episode (from when the explosion was new). I actually have that episode. It's not bad.

    We don't get that channel here, so I have nothing from it.

    KVDO doesn't exist any more. It was Salem's OEPBS station.

    I noticed there's a show on KOIN Saturday @ 11:30pm called "Up Late NW." I think I'll tape an episode in case it goes away really quickly.
