Super Bowl Sunday marked three weeks since a conversation with my mother revealed that my grandma was in very delicate condition. Mom's choice of words, like “do not resuscitate” and “living will” caught my attention. Grandma had been hospitalized for pneumonia a/… Read full post »
Cathy and I were lovers for a few weeks, back in the early summer of 2011. We'd met through one of the more alternative online dating sites. She reached out to me first, with praise for my photography skills and an interest in the play I was writing at… Read full post »
2012 seemed like the perfect time to start a motorcycle club. Last year, I pushed myself in new directions by establishing this blog, taking to the airwaves as an underground radio DJ, and writing/directing/producing a new play. Repeating myself year after year was never very comfortable for me.… Read full post »
The downgrade of America's credit rating by Moody's and Standard & Poors was the ultimate admission of failure by Corporate America—particularly its Financial division. The financial industry did its best to sabotage and cripple any long-term economic engine that would have… Read full post »
It's Sunday morning. I'm watching the sun rise from the southeast side of Nob Hill, just outside of downtown San Francisco. In a few hours, roughly a million people will sort of go berserk on Market Street. By floats and balloons and roller skates and bicycles and convertibles, lucky thr… Read full post »
I'll admit it: I was waiting to get good and fucking furious about something before firing out another piece across these wires. The appropriate "thanks" goes out to the dissenters in and conservative reactionaries to Monday's Supreme Court decision in Brown, et al. v. Plata, et al.
For d… Read full post »
I didn't attend a celebration of “Yuri's Night,” out of respect for the man and what his achievement came to symbolize to those of us earth-bound misfits who have since longed for a life off-world. Fifty years after the USSR showed the U.S. who was really serious about going i… Read full post »
I decided to venture out in new ways this year, and doing this blog was one of them. I'd resisted the temptation to join the explosive cacophany of blogs that swamped the internet en masse a few years back because I didn't want to waste bandwidth on a vanity project.… Read full post »
In the too-brief, post-orgasmic glow that was Hosni Mubarak's historically mortifying exit from a disgraceful rule over Egypt, it would have been easy for some of us human revolution junkies to reap cheap thrills out of each new trysting partner as democracy's emboldened groupies throughout and aroun… Read full post »
In the hysterical pessimism surrounding Egypt's political and global future, one looming question is being completely ignored: isn't it time that Israel got serious about the Middle East Peace Plan? Syria and Jordan could easily be next in line for Egypt-style uprisings. If that happe… Read full post »
With all due respect to Public Enemy, the Revolution is being televised. Right this very second. It is a whole new model of Revolution, too. For once, the army's involvement is not leaving slaughtered masses in the streets. For once, days of "rage" are anything but. For… Read full post »
The State of the Union address is about to commence, in about an hour. Over the last two days, the journalistic and op/ed anticipation surrounding the speech has grown to a fever pitch usually reserved for Lindsey Lohan's latest drug/booze/rehab/probation foibles. Minutes ago, Google News… Read full post »
In a better world, the story would have gone something like this:
(01-20) 12:12 PST (Not the AP) --
The Justice Department announced today that over 130 individuals from nation's seven largest financial firms have been arrested and charged with a variety of crimes ranging from fraud to/… Read full post »
I wasn't even born when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was shot to death on April 4, 1968.
His legacy came to me as a kid, through shows like Sesame Street, Sanford & Son, Star Trek, and The Jeffersons. My parents were strong believers in Dr. King, and… Read full post »
"City of the dead, at the end of another lost highway, signs will still lead you nowhere."
Yep. That's San Francisco right now, and has been for years. If you've visited the City (yes, the capital "c" is intentional) since 2007, you probably didn't notice how bad things have gotten for… Read full post »
Facebook is over. Done. Finished. Kaput.
"What? No, it isn't. My account and my 211 'friends' are still there."
It's been quite a year for Facebook. Mark Zuckerberg was Time's "Person of the Year" for 2010. The Social Network, a movie based on Zuckerberg's years at… Read full post »
. . . I love you. I really do. When I see a man in power cry tears of unadulterated joy, it makes me tingle the way my first high school girlfriend did when she stuck her tongue in my ear during our freshman summer break. Oh, John! If only gay… Read full post »
