A Glorious Tribute to Maya Angelou

I saw an eagle today. Down at Elliott Bay park, which is my favorite park in the whole world (it used to be Dumbarton Oaks in D.C., designed by Olmstead) . . . it was flying amongst some lower birds. I saw some eagles in Dutch Harbor, Alaska, too, standing on the dock . . . they really are majestic creatures up close. Truly the King of Birds. Their presence inspires respect, awe . . . you want to sit at their feet and hear them lecture about things; you could imagine sitting next to one with a pipe, and he’ll tell you all about what he really does, and does not like, about America. And maybe he’ll even tell you that he’s been so angry at America so many times that he’s almost flown right into the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. to demand from those podunk congresskids that they take his image offa anything and everything having to do with the U.S.—that’s how disgusted he gets sometimes. “These white fundamentalist Puritans come and kill all these Indians, and take all their land, and they have the balls to claim ‘moral imperative?’ . . . “ And then he’ll pause . . . and then he’ll say that he thinks about that, sure, but then he’ll soar a little higher, and just forget about the whole damn thing.

GOOD NEWS!: GREAT BEAR RAINFOREST SAVED!

April 3, 2001
San Francisco, CA -- The Sierra Club applauded the government of British Columbia who, in coordination with environmental organizations, logging companies, and Indigenous people, announced today the largest rainforest conservation measure in North American history. Some 3.5 million acres--an area 4 times the size of Rhode Island--of ancient temperate rainforests will be immediately protected or placed in a moratorium on logging until final land use decisions can be made. The new conservation area, referred to as the "Great Bear Rainforest", is a wildlife hot spot, home to numerous wildlife including a large bear population with the rare, white "Spirit Bear."

I recently saw the movie, The Bear. I was pleasantly surprised by the psychedelic sequence. This movie should be a staple in any progressive family's collection.

I want to direct your attention to Kirsten Anderson's thumbmonkey. It's a quite excellent blend of the personal and the net-dendritic.

Kirsten Anderson is the "owner, curator, director and janitor" of Seattle's own Roq la Rue art gallery.

Dan Clowes will be appearing in the flesh at Roq la Rue this May for the opening nite of a new show featuring artwork by himself, and fellow Fantagraphics artist Chris Ware.

Chris Ware will be there, too.

The Earth Mother has come out of her lair with a very important message for all Earthlings on Earth Day:

"EVERYDAY IS EARTH DAY, ASSHOLES!!!"

REPORT FROM THE MEDICS

"According to street medic and clinicion, Doc Rosen, this is some of the worst police brutality he has ever seen. He said the police are acting with more violence than N30 in Seattle. The medics have been treating many burns, broken bones, teargas related injuries, head injuries, and even a C-Spine injury from a rubber bullet. The QC police are intentionally aiming tear gas canisters and plastic bullets at peoples heads, beating people, shooting them with water cannons, and just being brutal in general. "

Some protestors get biblical with the slingshot on their ass.

The caption to this photo includes the sentence: "Protests have marred the summit . . . "

HEY, NOTHING LIKE A LITTLE OUTBREAK OF REAL DEMOCRACY TO MAR YOUR MEGALO-CORPORATE, ANTI-PEOPLE AGENDA YOU FUCKS!!!

HEAD FUCK

--WHO WAS NOT EVEN DEMOCRATICALLY-ELECTED, AS THE GUARDIAN SO SKILLFULLY REMINDS US

"At approximately 11:00 p.m. EDT, approximately 20 riot police fired rubber bullets down the stairs into the CMAQ foyer, injuring one activist. He suffered wounds to his leg and was treated at the scene by medics. CMAQ staff and reporters responded to the police assault by barricading the doors.

" . . . At 12:57 a.m. EDT, CMAQ reporters confirmed via eyewitnesses that the Medical Center had been tear-gassed by riot police. The clinic was moved to the CMAQ building.

"As of 1:29 a.m. EDT -- Sunday, April 22, 2001 -- CMAQ staffers confirmed that the young man shot in the throat with a plastic bullet last night is in critical but stable condition at St. Foy Hospital in Quebec City, Quebec.

"Other reports of serious injuries and police brutality continued to mount all last night and this morning and afternoon. People who had attended the previous protests in Seattle, Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia continue to insist that the situation here is worse than all prior protests."

David Dellinger--one of the Chicago Seven--was also in Quebec City this past weekend protesting the FTAA.

Carnival of Protest Ended in Tear Gas and Choking

And, Even the Green Zone Wasn't a Safe Haven by Naomi Klein

Naomi writes: "Throwing activists into unmarked cars and nabbing them off streets is not supposed to happen in Canada."--it's not supposed to happen in America, either, but it did--in Seattle during the 1999 WTO-protests.

"To provide for the educational and emotional needs of targeted activist youth and of children whose parents have been targeted in the course of their progressive activities...

"The Rosenberg Fund for Children (RFC) is a public foundation which was established to provide for the educational and emotional needs of targeted activist youth and children whose parents have been harassed, injured, lost jobs, or died in the course of their progressive activities and who, therefore, are no longer able to fully provide for their children. Professionals and institutions will be awarded grants to provide the children or activist youth with services at no or reduced cost.

"The Fund bears the name of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg. On June 19, 1953, the Rosenbergs were executed because they refused to implicate others by falsely confessing to giving the 'secret' of the atomic bomb to the Soviet Union.They wrote their sons, Michael Meeropol and Robert Meeropol (the Fund's founder) just before they were killed that they died secure in the knowledge that others would carry on after them. The Fund carries that trust forward and will ensure that future generations will do so as well.

"The New York Time's chief legal correspondent said of Robert Meeropol that 'after having been an orphan at 6, adrift at 33, and a frustrated lawyer at 40, he has fashioned a fitting monument to his parents, one meant to spare other children from what he had to endure.' Since its founding in 1990, the RFC has gathered 8,000 supporters, and provided over $650,000 for the children of targeted activists. In the spring, the Fund awarded $109,000 for over 130 children and activist youth."

Among other projects, Syd worked on Blade Runner and Alien.

I recently learned about Syd thru a tree-copy of Juxtapoz, which unfortunately doesn't update their website anymore. Juxtapoz still remains my favorite art mag. Btw, you can purchase yourself a copy of Juxtapoz @ Seattle's own Roq la Rue--currently featuring the artwork of Anthony Ausgang & Blair Wilson:

How the GOP Gamed the System in Florida

"In all, some 200,000 Floridians were either not permitted to vote in the November 7 election on questionable or possibly illegal grounds, or saw their ballots discarded and not counted. A large and disproportionate number were black."

Natural Health's Second Annual Guide to America's Healthiest Cities

Number 2: Minneapolis

"Because of the city's large Tibetan community, the country's second largest, interest in the Dalai Lama's teachings is high."

Number 3: San Francisco

"It had the most yoga studios and acupuncturists per capita, and scored extra points for not having a lot of fast-food restaurants per capita."

On Seattle:

"Seattle came in a hair behind San Francisco in amenities, with top scores awarded for its abundance of acupuncturists, yoga studios, and farmers' markets per capita. Despite all Seattle has to offer, it earned only an average physical health grade because it had high rates of breast cancer and obesity."

Number 1: Honolulu!

Australian Protestor Sets the Fur Flying!

"Mr Mark's protest was against not the Florida election fiasco but all the fur coats adorning Republican women. Mr Mark, an intern with the animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, wanted to bring to the attention of George W. Bush the plight of the minks, raccoons and rabbits on the backs of the Republican revellers."

Also: Hail to the Thief!

On an anecdotal note, my very own sister (who used to live in Florida), is friends with a current resident of Florida who twice asked to receive his absentee ballot--and never received even one. Since my sister's friend's Dad is a judge, the judge looked into it and what do you know?--both absentee ballots had been turned in with Bush's name on it.

If you think Bush won the election fair and square, it goes without saying that you are a complete and utter moron.

And NOW, it's time for another wacky edition of:

FOUND IN MY REFERRER LOG

The World's Largest Ball of Twine

Firefly Delight

Princess Leah's blog.

Those above seem to have found their way into my referrer log by mistake.

Following are some lesser-known sites found in my referrer log which were actually supposed to be there:

The Place to Be, who found me after some teenage girl gave him my url via the Makeout Club--cool!

(Was it you, Tiff? (--who would also like to plug the Rain City Skate Park.))

This amazing directory called 'Mr. Murphy's Neighborhood' . . . from the producer of Ghost in the Machine.

Norton, who called me the "deadly Dr. Menlo" . . . heh.

The Scobleizer . . . yes, I was scobleized ("most distasteful thing I ever stood still for"--ha ha, love that line, via Wm. Burras, o'course) . . . Ok, just found it . . . he sez: "Dr. Menlo's MPS" . . . his acronym standing for . . . erm, can't find what the acronym stands for, but from the following paragraph I'm guessing 'Micro-Published Something' . . .

Which reminds me of this comment by drat fink:

. . . someone else was pushing "micro publishing" as an alternate to "weblogs" which apparently has alot of negative baggage attached to it already. i guess it reeks of amateurism. but really, me zines? and why not "idealogs?" its more specific and tidier than micro publishing and it comes complete with a clever pun instead of poor syntax. also "zines" are by nature amateurish and thus the stigma has not been removed. whereas "idealogs" despite sounding like a 1970s toy company has a fresh and bold outlook, one that screams (albeit demurely) "vision."
See also via drat fink: this Housemartins link, and also Regular Pot Smoking Won't Kill, Kaiser Researchers Determine.

I used to really dig the Housemartins way back in the late eighties; I was surprised to learn that Fatboy Slim used to be a Housemartin.

Drat Fink is one of those blogs I would steal links from more, but it is always so chockfull I never know where to stop--same with FMH, Jimwich, Abuddhas, RandomWalks, BookNotes, Wood's Lot, Ghost Rocket and many more!

Happy Belated Anniversary to BookNotes, btw--you know, only in the last 2 months have I discovered BookNotes, Wood's Lot and CABINET, which makes me wonder how many more great blogs are out there that I haven't seen yet?

Oh, and see also (via this weblogs search, actually): methylsalicylate.

(ps: I am unable to send mail via my WELL account right now, tho I can receive ok--so sorry to those whom I haven't written back to yet. Hey, didja hear fellow Seattle-ite and Corpse-er Joe Safdie is gonna be @ Bumbershoot this year? Cool!)
