about me
I want to go to the following places before I'm in a coffin:

Cuba before Castro dies
Ireland
Spain especially the Basque Region
Patagonia
Bali
Alaska
The Badlands
Wood St station in West Oakland - strike this- the effin thing is being demolished and condos are sprouting up in it's place.

And of course, your heart.

I grew up in the shadow of NYC, commuting 4 nights a week to the punk scene, which at the time was centered around Loisida.
Oakland CA is where Home is.
To complicate things further, I am living in Annapolis MD

SAGITARIUS
Spontanious. Horny. Sexy. High sex appeal.

Tom is a great guy. Intelligent, sensitive, thoughtful and knows much about music and bikes and home owning. I'm so glad the tribe gods brought us together. I'm honored to have him as one of my friends.
October 8, 2005
Tom is the reason I got on Tribe - besides meeting funky girls, of course - and besides the fact that friends kept bugging me to get on. That is, to meet people like him - he probably thought I was a freak when I emailed him out of the blue but when we went out for drinks, I soon realized how good of an idea it was. I even forgot to look at all the punk chix at the silver lion . . .

he's a cool guy, very DIY, he's the kind of person that (like me, I hope) keeps urban areas interesting and thriving - fixes his house, rides his bike everywhere, knows how to get a good deal on a mortgage. Tom's good people.

He's not really in West Oakland either, he just wants you to think he's tough. ;-)

--Kenneth Boulding

*Consider this:
Carrying a baton concealed - Felony
Carrying a firearm concealed- Misdemeanor

Now, as for batons, there are some loopholes, such as if it's 28" or longer, it's not a baton/billyclub, its' a cane.
- Shatter from the BaGG tribe...... makes ya think about the criminal (in)justice system and weapons and their intent/end results.

*They're gonna keep callin' us "cutters." To them, it's just a dirty word. To me, it's just somethin' else I never got a chance to be.- Mike, from Breaking Away

* “Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has power, genius and magic in it' - Gothe

* "You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You are the same decaying organic matter as everyone else, and we are all part of the same compost pile." - Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club, Chapter 17

* "Politics, it seems to me, for years, or all too long, has been concerned with right or left instead of right or wrong." -Richard Armour

* "When you hear the voice of God telling you to do something, get a second opinion.''
--Daniel Ellsberg

* Being in the army is like being in the Boy Scouts, except that the Boy Scouts have adult supervision.

[T]he megacolon was jam-packed from the base of the descending colon all the way up and halfway across the transverse colon. It was filled with white, chalklike fecal material.
- Elvis Presley's Cornor who performed the autopsy

- James Brown

* Jon on the Enron trial:
"The trial of Enron chiefs Jeffrey Skilling and Ken Lay began four-and-a-half years after perpetrating -- allegedly -- the fraud that led to the second largest bankruptcy in American history. Why four-and-a-half years? Because apparently it's harder to bring Ken Lay to trial than it is to invade two countries."

* I didn't want to hurt them. I only wanted to kill them.
- David Berkowitz, aka Son of Sam, aka .45 caliber killer

*I have seen the Promised Land, and it's been Promised to someone else.
- Stephen Ilepi- False Prophets

*Almost everyone I've talked to says, 'We're moving to Houston.' What I'm hearing, which is sort of scary, is they all want to stay in Texas... so many of the people in the arena ...were were underprivileged anyway... this is working very well for them
- Barbara Bush a few days after Hurricane Katrina

* One final paragraph of advice: Do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am - a reluctant enthusiast... a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it's still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, encounter the grizz, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for awhile and contemplate the precious stillness, that lovely, mysterious and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound people with their hearts in a safe deposit box and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this: You will outlive the bastards.
- Edward Abbey vis a vis Clay Mankin of City Cycle

* The number one sign you have nothing to do at work: The 4th Division of Paperclips has overrun the Pushpin Infantry and General White-Out has called for a new skirmish.
- Fred Barling

* Doesn't anybody notice this? I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!
- Mugatu

* The call for patriotism comes out of the mouth of Tyrants and dictators.

I am falling over laughing watching Wonkette.com completely derail the GOP's attempts to revitalize their party.
First some republican party person, all down on her luck and depressed, thought to work with the youngins and put together www.rebuildtheparty.com , asking for ideas on how to re-energize their party.

Some ideas seemed genuine at first.

Then, a few hours later, it gets posted on www.Wonkette.com :

A few weeks ago a Chron reporter contacted me about the credit card and other consumer debt drying up. They used some of what I had to say.

www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi

There's some good comments at the end. Some a little wingnutty, while others make a good point- the banks lending us money got a 700bn bailout, while they raise the floor interest rates, late fees, and other spurious charges.
And they also ding merchants for accepting card... read more
