Tomaxopolis is a pop-culture blog that's interested in the intersection of sports, technology, art/design, music/film/television/literature, comic books/graphic novels, '60s/'70s/'80s/'90s nostalgia, the Dark Arts, sex/religion/politics, Internet culture, etc.
It’s one-stop-shopping for all things topical and random. You’ll find words, pictures, sounds and vids, from the cool to the thoughtful, the contemporary and the retro, the amazing and the ludicrous, to the fun and the humorous. It's all here. You'll also come across arbitrary ramblings/musings and the occasional essay. And it’s unabashedly Portland and Los Angeles-centric.
Just think of it as a stream-of-consciousness blog without the conscience.

For ten years now, LA residents have been lining to get into Hollywood Forever Cemetery. They aren’t waiting to pay their respects, or visit a famous grave, but to see a classic movie under the moonlight—sometimes just a few feet from where the stars of the film are buried. Off-Ramp producer Kevin Ferguson talked about the 10 year anniversary with John Wyatt. Wyatt founded Cinespia, the group that organizes the cemetery screenings.
They started this, the year I moved to Los Angeles. Have yet to check it out. Might have to check out The Shining next Saturday…
