The scene in the tree with Robert Pattinson and Kristin Stewart from the very first Twilight film

CELEB-U-WATCH: Getting reports from more than one source that Twilight's Kristin Stewart was just spotted in Portland. I have no confirmation, but there is a very good chance that the star of Twilight is currently tooling around the city. It is afterall the place where she first played Bella in that classic movie series.

PEACOCK IS BACK! It's been ten long years since Portland's top drag queens and their devotees packed the amphitheater at Washington Park, but on Sunday afternoon...well...it felt like it all just happened yesterday.

Peacock in the Park picked up right where it left off a decade ago with an afternoon of star power, big lip synching, twerk-friendly dance moves and a whole lot of love packed into the Washington Park Amphitheater. And just like before, Emcees Poison Waters and Maria Peters Lake—who inherited the gig from the much missed Lady Elaine Peacock—held court over a capacity crowd and a crowded roster of performers that had to be at least 25 acts strong.

Everybody was there, including Misha Rockefeller who was one of the shining stars of the previous Peacocks and made a triumphant return to the stage on Sunday. All in all, it was a lovely afternoon spent with a group of amazing performers backed by incredible dancers. And there wasn't even a drop of rain. Oh yes, Peacock in the Park is definitely back. Can't wait until next year!

TO ERR IS HUMAN. TO AIR GUITAR IS DIVINE: So not only did I judge a "top model" contest for dogs this week, I was also one of the judges for the U.S. Air Guitar Contest at Dante's on Saturday night.

It was the only Portland qualifying event for this freaky national competition as well as a benefit for the SUN Community School Program.

My fellow judges included national champ, Lieutenant Facemelter (who took off his pants and changed into some really groovy threads back in the judging area), the Marquis, and local radio god Daniel Bozyk.

After adult bevvies were provided the panel got our asses to judging. I was told to look for three things: technical accuracy, showmanship and “Airness” ("you’ll know it when you see it," my instructions said).

After each contestant competed we gave them a score and a few words. Well, maybe I gave them more than a few words...and a little 'tide...but they seemed to take it all in stride.

For this competition there were two rounds. The top 5 from the first round went on to the second round where they were asked to play a song they had no time to prepare for. It was all very cool and very airy.

The winner was Tony Tapatio who had all the right moves, and then some. The second and third place winners weren't that easy to pick and ended up in a twisted, messy air-off. At the end Sahexy and Morti-Air ended up taking second and third. That air-off was AWESOME (it included a stage dive). Damn, the whole night was AWESOME. Can't wait to see if one of these three will air their way to a national crown. Represent, Portland!

TOP DOG: I would like to thank LexiDog, Hotel Monaco, and the Oregon Humane Society for allowing me to participate in their 7th Annual TopDog Model Event.

For the event, held last week, I was one of the lucky judges alongside Kimberly Weishoff, Helen Raptis, Sheryl Stewart, Mitch Elliott and Kevin Cook, aka Poison Waters. The emcee was the one and only Andy Carson.

There were incredible entries and somehow they narrowed the contestants down to the top 12 small and top 12 large dogs. Prior to the event we were whisked back to a VIP suite where were able to relax and have a cocktail.

As for the contest, it was really hard to pick a "top dog." Fact is, all of them were "top" to me and my fellow judges. But we had to choose, and here is who ended up in the winners circle:  in the large dogs (30 pounds or more) category, Ross, a 12-year old English Springer spaniel was chosen as the TopDog Model. The Fan Favorite of the same category was awarded to Huck, a Tibetan mastiff pup. For the small dogs, Smoochie, an eight-year-old Pomeranian, won TopDog Model honors. Lola, a terrier mix, was the Fan Favorite small dog.

It had been years since I had participated in this incredible event, and I was pleased as punch to be back amongst the pooches at this year's spectacular event.

CELEB-U-WATCH: Basketball and sportswear icon Michael Jordan was spotted in Portland on Thursday night.

According to my source the basketball great was seen dining downtown at El Gaucho, a frequent haunt for meat-and-cigar loving professional athletes like Mr. Jordan.

It is safe to assume that Michael is here for to meet up with his peeps at Nike.

No word on where he spent the morning watching the World Cup match between Costa Rica and England.
