Leave a comment

Yea, Dwight Yoakam at Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival 2014. What a treat. Loved this mans music for the longest time, but have only heard him twice, live, including today. Dwight has an authentic sound, with his own touch, make shim an artist not be ignored or dismissed.  More information on him can be seen here, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dwight_Yoakam

Pics from Fire in the Mission District on September 4, 2014

1 Comment

On Thursday September 4th at approx.1pm a fire broke out in one of San Francisco’s most diverse neighborhoods. The fire occurred at one of the many stores in that neighborhood, but what is most disconcerting is that the local news channel NBC captured a bite from San Francisco Fire Dept. Chief Joanne Hayes-White. She said. “The business were cited in both 2009 and 2013 for fire code violations, and in both instances, the business were able to correct the violation for follow-up inspections.”This fire has been named the #MissionFire on social media has displaced many residents, injured firefighters, and caused a major disaster in an already embattled neighborhood. San Francisco Fire Department collectively can output at least 1,250 gallons of water per minute. The MissionFire has gone on for at least 6 hours. California is experiencing major drought, so million gallon fires could be quickly draining resources. The #MissionFire was toxic and was huge, and many local businesses had their electricity cut-off.

Reported on immigration/deportation protest

Leave a comment

I knew there was going to be a immigration/deportation protest in downtown San Francisco today. So I went to it and it is my opinion that I reported it faster than mainstream media.
I have no comments about immigration, except I do have experiences.
One was that one of my favorite wildlife photographers had been deported, and the other is that lady who threatened to kill me everyday for 2 weeks had been picked up by ICE.
Demonstrators say at least 2 million people have been deported. There are 13 immigration courts at 100 Montgomery street in San Francisco, and there are approx. 24,000 cases active right now in that building.

The I (Eye) in Media
Opening Night: Friday, March 14, 6 to 9pm
Gallery Hours: Sat/Sun, March 15,16 and Sat/Sun, March 22,23, 12pm to 5pm

An installation project about the “I” in media and how we make it, subculture media catalysts, and how to add your “I (Eye)” to the media.

“The I (Eye) in Media” installation shows you how easy it is to add your I (eye) to the media, celebrates coverage of protests and demonstrations, and introduces the community media champions,

World premiere of the Predicta PC steampunk TVs Episode 5 gets you into the TOHO-Scope newsrooms who report on Godzilla through the decades.

SF’s favorite costumed roller skater is having his first gallery installation, and he’s ready to talk about his slinky satire and street theater life.

“The media” is made by people, and we are the people who put ourselves in the media as much as we are the media. We are activists, makers, hacks, hackers, videographers, costume designers, internet video viralists, and culture-harvesters who post flyers. Media is all around us and our role is flippy-floppy all day long: sometimes we are absorbing and sometimes we are making.

Our Bay Area media –community, local, print, internet, television, radio– is rich with participation, and it’s your personal choice to be included in the local media, via political art and satire, flyer art, neighborhood newspapers, public access television, political demonstrations, organizing, and documenting under-reported events, and more.

Allegedly got stolen car in my pics.

Leave a comment

So weird. I posted pics of a car accident on Flickr, and it turns out one of the cars in one of the pics was a stolen car, so the alleged original owner of that crashed car sends me a message. “HEY, that’s my car in your pics, it got stolen, and the idiots who stole it, wrecked it.”
