Bits & Pieces: Muy Guapo!

The fellows from Muy Guapo, who competed in the 2013 Long Beach Red Bull Flugtag event in their Mexican pro wrestling-themed garb and riding a bull craft, built themselves a sled shaped like a wrestling ring and won the Red Bull Schlittentag event recently at Mt. Hood SkiBowl.

The Muy Guapo Sliders, as they called themselves, had the best combination of fastest time and most creative presentation — so they took first place in an event that featured 24 teams and their sleds racing down the snowy slopes at SkiBowl. The same guys also took part in the 2013 Schlittentag, and have been involved in a couple past flugtag events in Portland.

The team Breaking Rad came in second place with the most creative craft of the day — they wore “Breaking Bad”-inspired gear and raced on a sled fashioned out of blue barrels.

Third place went to Axes Of Evil, which had the fastest time on the course at 9.4 seconds in their Portland Timbers-themed craft. The crowd chanted “PTFC” as the craft went down the hill.

‘Something Wicked

The last film starring the late Brittany Murphy, “Something Wicked,” which was filmed in Oregon, will be shown at Regal Entertainment Group theaters in Portland starting Friday, April 11. It premiered in Eugene. The movie will be shown at the following Regal theaters in the Portland area: Fox Tower Stadium 10, Lloyd Mall 8, Division Street Stadium 13, Bridgeport Village Stadium 18 and IMAX (Tigard), Movies on TV Stadium 16 (Hillsboro), Cascade Stadium 16 IMAX and RPX (Vancouver, Wash.). For info and tickets: REGmovies.com.

The movie summary from Regal: In this hauntingly seductive thriller, a young couple embarks upon their honeymoon against the chilling landscapes of the Pacific Northwest. But when tragedy strikes, gruesome secrets from their past collide with sinister forces of the present to ensure this couple does not live “happily ever after.”

Murphy died in December 2009 at age 32 from what was reported as pneumonia, anemia and possible overmedication.
