Can't believe the fucking coffee maker died...

Whiteaker People's Party is Saturday. I got the day off from work and I'll be appearing with Dwight D @ Lazarus Pit at 1 pm, Davy Jonesers at Tiny's @ 2, and the Soothesayers @ 8 pm. The Whiteaker PP is a response to the Whiteaker Block Party, (Whiteaker BLock Party is now in its 7th year!) Tim (of Soothe sayers) and Jevon organized the "People's Party" last year (2012) outside of the Block Party area, as a kind of act of defiance to the gentrification and monopolization of the Whiteaker neighborhood by Ninkasi brewing, this year the poeples party will be sponsured by Pabst Blue Ribbon, and that fact will be more of a 'two finger' salute to Ninkasi.
Originally, DavY jones' Locker Combo was going to play at the Jesco Club (AA) where Dave was caretaker at the time, THAT was to be the big F.U. to Ninkasi, because it was to be a sober party! but the little area we were to play was too small, and as soon as word got out that there was a 'non-Ninkasi' stage, it started to snowball a bit.
obv'ly not everyone is down with all the trash talking inevitably happens, about 'corporate beer' and the buying up of the neighborhood, whether its true or not, trash talking doesn't really achieve anything. & Where Tim is usually extra careful of what he does day, others close to him pick up the torch and mouth off about it. The politics of this situation makes for yucky band practices, can't we all just get along?

I've inherited the 'games group' at work, and will be running it for the first time tonight, still haven't decided what I want to play with residents. I'm very lucky to work with such great people, the staff at garden is pretty cool.

WARNING: Mertz on his soapbox.

In February of 2003, I went on my bike, with the tagalong (or trail-bike) with then 7 year old JP on it. down to the Univeristy of Oregon to join in a a peace march and protest against the invasion of Iraq, and against the war criminal, treasonist fascist liar Dick Cheney (No, W didn't actually do any of it, come on)

from the wiki )

As most of you probably know, Iraq has been a Nuclear war from the very beginning. Not nuclear bombs, but nuclear bullets, commonly known as DEPLETED URANIUM rounds.

from the wiki again )

I was thinking about posting a youtube on DU here. but, dude. the pictures of Iraqi birth defects are NOT something I want to impose on anyone. This shit has got to stop. Our Hopey Changey president took more money from corporations during the 08 election than Palin and whats-his-name. Because they knew, the McCain Palin ticket was a joke, Obama was the onlly viable candidate, despite red state paranoia and Biblical weirdness of much of my country.

We've got to stop this Iraq/Afghanistan 'war on terror' BS and we've GOT TO STOP USING D/U BULLETS.

Now Obama is talking about an 8 billion dollar interest free loan to Georgia companies to build nuclear plants. You know the contractors have dollar signs in their eyes and holy shit, its national corn dog day....

John Conyers questions John 'Testicle Crusher' Yoo.

John Yoo publicly argued there is no law that could prevent the President from ordering the torture of a child of a suspect in custody – including by crushing that child’s testicles.

This came out in response to a question in a December 1st debate in Chicago with Notre Dame professor and international human rights scholar Doug Cassel.

What is particularly chilling and revealing about this is that John Yoo was a key architect post-9/11 Bush Administration legal policy. As a deputy assistant to then-Attorney General John Ashcroft, John Yoo authored a number of legal memos arguing for unlimited presidential powers to order torture of captive suspects, and to declare war anytime, any where, and on anyone the President deemed a threat.

It has now come out Yoo also had a hand in providing legal reasoning for the President to conduct unauthorized wiretaps of U.S. citizens. Georgetown Law Professor David Cole wrote, "Few lawyers have had more influence on President Bush’s legal policies in the 'war on terror’ than John Yoo."

found out about this on
Christian Freaks rate movies based on 6 'violations' ( which together form the anagram WISDOM )
so I picked a fairly inoccuous one THE SHAGGY DOG - 2006 remake

Wanton Violence/Crime (W)
# adolescent breaking and entering to thieve
# slapstick violence, repeatedly
# traffic violence
# other breaking and entering
# threat to kill
# kidnapping

Impudence/Hate (I)
# dog urination
# adolescent disrespect toward father, repeatedly
# coaching to lie
# lies, repeatedly
# toilet humor, repeatedly such as a man hiking his leg to urinate as does a dog
# adolescent planning of defiance of parental conditions

Sexual Immorality (S)
# talk of naked/nude
# dog nuzzling a man's crotch from the rear, repeatedly
# nudity hidden from the viewer, repeatedly
# dog's tail tickling a man's nude crotch under a smock
# a man's nudity, hidden from the viewer, in his daughter's view

Drugs/Alcohol (D):
# drinking
# drugging of a man to silence (murder) him

Offense to God (O)
# two uses of God's name in vain without the four letter expletive
# Buddhism
# portrayal of Zen meditation

Murder/Suicide (M)
# none noted

interesting to me was that the 1959 G rated version had MORE offenses than the 2006 PG version ... WTF???

THE LION KING was marked as RED (strongest caution ) worst offense was in the 'S' category with only one example:

# Sexual Immorality (S)
# Homosexual suggestion by "Want me to dress in drag?"

GOD DAMN IT, saying or thinking Buddhism is an offense to Jehovah? Jesus fucking Christ, he has a stick up his ass!

Frontside aerial

theres a pirate utopia in my head
where people appreciate the difference
unocal aids in burma due to the heroin trade
wheres the connection?

theres a bulletproof diva under my feet
where people appreciate the difference
the fifth column ferrets out dirty accounts causing retirements of congressmen
wheres the connection?

theres a chain of cigars in the penthouse apartments,
a stinky liqiud that filters down
it leaks out of the bottom of the trash in the alley
with the most disgusting stench you can imagine

she’s still spitting teeth from the fall down...
she’s still running ads for the calm down...
she’s still steaming with her fun in the phone book...
reaching for another type of work...
we all suffer from burnout,
none of us has any energy...

Angry? "Yes."
Effective? "Sometimes."
Speaking to the disenfranchised youth? "Not really."

We just ask for the money up front.
Pay up sucker
