A Tiny Valve

Well ok I guess I earned a bunch about accordion this week from this total badass Romanian dude. Getting my ass kicked every morning and loving it.

So I’ve been at the KlezKanada retreat these past few days which has been an education and a humbling experience all wrapped up in a lot of other shit hat I’ll need to unpack before discussing but:

If I learn one thing this week, it’s that the point of cabaret is laughing in the face of abject fucking misery, especially now while watching a cabaret performance entirely composed of songs discovered from a woman’s concentration camp called Ravensbruch. The songs themselves are often quite jaunty and hilarious, coupled with the horrifying subtext of knowing the background of these songs.

Dear people who aren’t in the U.S.,

This shit didn’t just start happening… Please understand this.. the only difference is how technology, thus social media is infused in everyday society.. So we can spread the word and garner attention easier.. We’ve been picketing and protesting.. But it falls silent.. when a racist media doesn’t deem us as anything worth reporting.. THIS HAS BEEN HAPPENING FOR HUNDREDS OF YEARS……

We created Zombies, Run! to make running more exciting. Running is great, but it’s not the only way to keep fit. Bodyweight exercises like push-ups, jumping jacks, and squats are also essential for improving your health.

Except, like running, they can be super boring. Even the 7…

Is it racist that a white, 20 year old unarmed kid was shot by a black cop on Monday, Aug 18, 3 days ago and its no where in the news? Oh wait, it happens all the time, its just not newsworthy. Sucks to be white.

Dear Racists: I know you’re going to to be trotting this out in the next few days claiming that this shows how white people are just as badly treated as black people in the US (though, of course, the idea that “it happens all the time” to white people is, of course, a ridiculous and disgusting lie).

But guess what, fuckheads, as usual, you’re wrong as fuck. The reason this tragedy isn’t national news is because, surprise surprise, a similar (ish) shooting of a white teenager by a black cop is being handled by the authorities completely differently! That’s right, you dumbfucks, this officer is being immediately and vigorously investigated, the officer’s name was released, the victim wasn’t denied medical care, nor was his body left on the street for hours. It’s almost like, we treat black and white people differently in our justice system! And if you want to argue that the fucking Salt Lake City PD (oh shit, was I able to read about this case in the NATIONAL NEWS?!?!?! ) is racist against white people, you are fucking out of your mind.

So, nice try, you asshole, I know you were salivating over finding a case to compare this to Mike Brown, but, even with this timing, you’re not even fucking close to proving your racist “point.”

this morning, police raided Greater St. Mark school/church in Ferguson, MO (formerly called St. Sebastian’s Parish).

community members had been using it as a safe space and staging area. police claim that the church is violating housing codes by sheltering protesters, even though the pastor has said it isn’t true.

please please please boost this. help these organizers recover the supplies they lost, and share just how fucking far these cops will sink to make the people of Ferguson suffer.

You gotta love when they go for churches. They don’t need to burn crosses, we know who they are. 

why aren’t white conservative christians hooping and hollaring about violation of religious freedom and community and shit?

hmm?

or the fact tear gas has aboritificants, which cause miscarriage and can cause problems with reproductive organs (most affects, uterus and ovaries). Why aren’t “pro-life” people caring about that?

oh but this isn’t a race issue is it.

i’ll wait.
