Rowdy Roddy Piper busting skulls in Cloud City!!!

Rowdy Roddy Effing Piper

The greatest pro wrestler ever,Rowdy Roddy Piper, was in recording voiceovers for his episode of Celebrity House Hunting airing on Biography Channel...

"For the past few decades, Rowdy Roddy Piper and his family have been living in the country outside Portland, Oregon. While he moved his family there to protect them from the increasingly violent fans of Roddy's wrestling nemesis, Hulk Hogan, he now feels that things have calmed enough to bring his family back into the city. Roddy and his wife, Kitty, have a long list of requirements for a new home, but the couple of nearly 30 years doesn't always share the same list. Roddy is looking for a home fit for a Hall of Fame wrestler, while Kitty wants a home where their kids and grandkids will be comfortable, as well as a place that can house her two goats, large dog, and parrot. While Portland's finest real estate at their fingertips, will this couple be able to find a home that fits both their needs?

Popular singer Yuki Saori to receive Japan's Art Encouragement Prizes. Yuki has gained prominence outside Japan after collaborating with Pink Martini, a jazz ensemble based in Portland, Oregon, on "1969," an album almost entirely of songs sung in Japanese and an international sensation recorded entirely at Cloud City Sound." Pink Martini's Thomas Lauderdale produced an album for EMI Japan singer Yuki Saori with strings, harp, horns, and every other type of instrument played by the best players in PDX! Dave Friedlander engineered.

A homegrown Portland creative space that has empowered the music community by providing the tools of technology.
