This one really seals the deal, Jonathan. Ugh, and he looks so happy too.

I do not, sorry Jonathan -- my only experience here is driving (when he's performing). And this picture really sums up how it feels from a car. (I mostly bike between SE and Gresham)

driving experience is even better!. can you elaborate a bit on how it feels to drive by this area... trying to see around that guy and watch for cars, bikes, and people walking? thanks
