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

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 Not only do all the videos on the old For Portlanders Only site have file formats that are out of date, I've amassed hundreds of additional clips since then that I've never gotten to share with anyone.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.

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.

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.

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!

Happy Birthday to the great Akira Toriyama!
Today, variety in my country's Cartoon Network's schedule has died.
I'm Planning to make a New Qubo schedule With Several New and Returning Shows (With one of them being Jacob Two-Two), No Paid Programming and the Return of the 4 hour Marathons.
Today marks the 10th Year Anniversary of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated and the 7th Year Anniversary of its series finale. It ended up becoming my favorite adaptation of the Scooby-Doo Franchise and found out about Lewis Black by name (I had heard his voice in some earlier shows).
Happy birthday to Akira Toriyama. My moniker here should make it clear that I am a fan of the DB Franchise.
