The Republicans Function Just Like Their Ideas On Sex Education:
As teenage hetero-boys, they’re all demands and no plans. When these boys finally do get past third-base–after making up a lot hooey with no real foreplay for the last 7 years of waiting–they get their chance for P-E-N-E-T-R-A-T-I-O-N. And at the pinnacle of this pokey-pokey, they promise sweet-somethings: “Don’t worry, I’ll pull out just-in-the-nick-of-time.” But beneath their bravado pantings, they know that if they do fuck up and get Mary pregnant, their maker (amen, voters) will forgive and redeem them because that’s what their pastor (ahem, lobbyists) keeps telling them every Sunday morning (or election cycle).
* I will say, admittedly, that the ad buys for this fuckshow are huge. Keep the “like” clicks coming. Facebook editors provided the necessary encouragement to write this.
Free speech? Yes, of course, thank you Bernie, Anne Coulter should be able to flip her hair, cross her legs back and forth, and say whatever she has to say that the Berkeley Campus Republicans are so excited to hear, without being threatened. And also NO KIDDING.
The problem I have with his reprimanding UC — timed for Cal Day; I guess he thinks it’s cooler that way — is that it’s NOT THE UC ADMINISTRATION who is the problem.
It’s Breitbart. It’s Antifa. They want to war specifically on UC soil because of the optics. They could have their war wherever, but this is their choice.
What he should’ve said is:
“UC administration is faced with a horrendous situation. We should all really appreciate they are balancing available public education at a world-class level, the safety of the students, and that two opposing political tribes want to foment unrest on campus.”

I know it’s sold out, but hoping to catch Cave’s NYC return in June. Perhaps he’ll slip “Anthrocene” into the mix… Our intersection over that word is touched on in this fun post (which describes me as a science fiction writer) in a way that elevates my music side way too high: http://www.compusmall.co.uk/…/193-the-name-of-the-anthrocene
The #costofcooking in Dudhebavi, India, includes chronic exposure to horrific levels of particulate matter smaller than 2.5 microns (P.M. 2.5), a prime cause of premature death in women in developing countries. This is a frame from video I shot Monday evening as Ashima Narain took still images. This woman was cooking on a so-called “improved cookstove” (see the chimney, for instance). The house also had an LPG stove – used a limited amount to save money. No easy answers.
More soon via ProPublica. What’s the cost of cooking where you live?
Massively excited to be joining Ron Davis, Jazz great and composer legend – Ron and his Pocket SymphRONica Group will be playing at the Fringe festival in Edinburgh at the same location as the Canadian poets and the wonderful singer Daniela Nardi. And joining Ron are both Kevin Barrett the consummate guitarist and the world famous drummer, Seb Rochfort. This is truly an honour.
And who could not want to enter the voice, and the internationally recogniized music of Daniela Nardi. We will be with Daniela at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe – and at other venues in Scotland – in August of this year. Thank you Daniela for agreeing to be part of the world’s great arts festival. Thanks for your commitment to music and to what matters. It is a joy that you are going to be a part of all this – what truly matters – the heart and its voice.The Canadian Contribution of Angela Elster’s Centre for Creative Learning.program at the Scottish Arts Club
Yeah. This is crucial. I give everyone 5 stars unless it was absolutely awful. Just tell the driver if their car is less clean than others, or you think they should drive more or less aggressively, or you don’t like the music, or anything else.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Berkeley campus, Hertz hall is a short flat walk from College/Bancroft, if you take Lyft or Uber.
It also has plenty of paid parking on Bancroft (under the tennis courts, about a 5 minute walk) and there is a big structure on Dana (10-20 minute uphill walk).
“It’s not how high you build your dreams that makes you different but how high your faith in God can climb. It’s not how many goals you reach, but how many lives you touch. It’s not who you know that matters, but who you are inside your heart and in your mind…”
