Follow Friday in Portland

Erin Faulk is traveling across the country to test social media, specifically Twitter. The L.A.-based film maker traveled more than 8,000 miles with a crew that helped her document life as she experienced it along the way while meeting with people face-to-face who followed her on Twitter. Erin’s goal was to find out if people are who they seem to be based on their on-line posts. In Portland , she chose to meet with Lynsie Lee, who works at a vegan strip club. KOIN local six was there when the two met for the first time and Erin taped material for her upcoming documentary called...

DAY 38

#fftheverification Things I’ve learned in the past few weeks: 1. No matter who you are, nobody likes the selection of music on your iPod as much as you do. 2. Everyone is paying less for gas than we pay in Los Angeles. 3. Audis get phenomenal gas mileage. . 4. Something like half the people running the UK are not elected. 5. Armadillos carry leprosy. 6. Louisiana has drive-thru daiquiri stands. 7. Celery requires an insane amount of water to grow. 8. The President and Bill Cosby eat free at Ben’s Chili Bowl. 9. The appropriate way to say Baltimore is Balamer. 10. Pot pie in Pennsylvania...

DAY 27

We got up early to be at Mount Rushmore right at 8am. The weather cooperated, and we got some gorgeous footage and photographs. I also took a photo for a family of ten. And by a photo, I mean like 12 photos, because I am bad at using cameras. Sorry, family of ten. We headed to Crazy Horse, which is supposed to be an enormous sculpture of Crazy Horse on a crazy horse, but is currently just a face. The sculptors started work on the monument in 1948. At this rate, it should be finished in about 450 years. I can only assume the delay is due to funding issues. Perhaps a Kickstarter is in order? As...

DAY 26

We woke up from our NyQuil-induced slumber in Worthington, Minnesota, in the worst motel of the trip thus far. I don’t want to talk about it. We exited the motel room via the window and didn’t look back. As far as I recall, the day went something like this: Take NyQuil. Dream of Twitter. Wake up, ask where we are. Fall asleep before getting an answer. Dream of Twitter. Wake up, ask what day it is. Fall asleep before getting an answer. Dream of Twitter. Wake up, ask what time it is, fall asleep before getting answer. Dream of hay bales on Twitter? Wake up, go to Wall Drug, take some more...

DAY 25

We woke up in Chicago, and learned about the Aurora theatre shooting from Twitter. I’m not good at talking about tragedy. I don’t feel like I have anything to add to the conversation. But I think we all have a need to connect with one another when something like this happens. I think that’s why we gather to leave flowers and mourn at the sites where terrible things happen. Why thousands of people showed up to hear President Obama speak in Aurora. And why we go straight to Twitter when our world is turned upside-down. Not just for the news, but to gather and connect with each other in a...
