Is it Still Worth It?

Uncategorized October 5th, 2012 2 comments

I’ve had convos with young, eligible voters who dis voter registration and voting in general. From these conversations, I have brief moments where I doubt my personal foundation and life’s meaning, I’m not mad at them – I don’t like it, but I understand.

Your Presence Is Needed

I hope you realize that you are powerful. Particularly, when you are hanging out with your peeps. Much more than the old heads, you’re in and around a variety of social settings – house parties, clubs, bars, and impromptu gatherings – where there can be great socializing. This video is the best push I’ve seen […]

Another Year Around the Sun!

Uncategorized September 10th, 2012 0 comments

Welcome and welcome back! It’s hard to believe – another year around the sun (I’m getting old).  Let me ask that question we’ve all asked and answered so many times today: how was your break? I hope it was wonderful – restful, productive, and beautiful. I hope you can observe – with me – the […]

Make the Community. Respect the Scene

I keep a running polemic – in my head – about Community. I’m no expert, but I spend lots of time thinking about and observing communities. Personally, I’ve always found Community to be too buttoned-up for my addiction to those things novel, uncertain, complex, and challenging. I get too sedentary hanging with Community and quickly […]

Jazz? I Prefer Funk – It Made Me Aware and Alive

Uncategorized August 6th, 2012 0 comments

(I’m calling fanboi warning on this post.) I believe in Funk. The first time I heard Parliament-Funkadelic’s “Do That Stuff” I was in – knee deep. Funk. The bomb. P-Funk. Uncut, lip-curling, stank, funk! I realized that I was a Funkateer all my life and never realized it. (Name-shouts for James Brown, The Bar-Kays, Booker […]

  Visa Olympics: Go World—Derek Redmond from Kirsten Stewart on Vimeo. I’m that guy who gets caught up in the Olympic pause-for-peace hype. Just when I get my people-of-the-world-unite-through-sports groove, I also get caught up on the cash-money hustle of this world sport game – fashion faux pas, copyright police, anemic storytelling, and incivility. And, […]
