1:51 am - moving help requested [e.3n.4a]
i am half done moving into the new space. the heavy furniture/gear is moved from 57 into 40 except for the large aquarium. what's left are the books and the gear in storage, and it is with this that i ask for assistance from the village. if you're available anytime over the next week (especially Sunday), and are able to lend a hand, please contact me.
as a nod to advice i've been getting that i purge some of the excess gear, the aquarium will not be coming. how's that for giving this "downsizing" notion a whirl?

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.Collapse )

9:23 pm - the vegetarian myth (3n.1a.1b)

part 1, and part 2

an excellent listen (for certain analytical, and similarly oriented temperaments), and valuable context for considering a somewhat non-dogmatic practice of vegetarianism; veganism; human agricultural practice; and more.

if wanting to skip the pledge drive lead in, the actual program content begins at 02:46 for part 1, and immediately on part 2.

12:19 am - keeping Stormy [eh.5l.3a...]
lie down sweet one
  in blankets woven soft

lie well - so very well
 and know thy song shall whisper long

lie in fondness
 lie in favor

stalk our memories
 walk our tales

for there is grieving in thy passage
 though relief in ended pain

there is much that i would wish you
 in hope of things unknown or scarce

for i am told of many heavens
 and prize thoughts you've voyaged there

remain well, remembered, missed, loved, and celebrated...
  you live on in those who cared

12:42 am - Thunderdome fundraiser details (4c.3a)
Saturday, August 15th
The Death Guild/ Thunderdome FUNDRAISER!!! at the Oakland Metro Opera House

Help get Death Guild Thunderdome back out on the playa for Burning Man this year!!
There are many ways you can do this, but the Fundraiser is certainly the most fun all around. Many of you have been before, so you know we throw a hell of a party. This year's festivities include DJs Melting Girl and Decay, incredible performances by Ariellah and Diva Marisa, a full bar with $2.00 PBRs and free range battles, Thunderdome style. Join us here for the pre-playa celebrations!!

Oakland Metro Opera House
630 3rd Street
Oakland, CA
(between Martin Luther King and Jefferson, near Jack London Square)

This fundraiser is an all ages event.
$10-$20 sliding scale at the door

We would love to see you all there, but you can still help us out even if you cannot make the party. Since the fundraiser is so close, we would appreciate all the help you can give us by reposting this information anywhere and EVERYWHERE. Our parties are only as fun as the people who come to them and getting the word out there as much as possible would be a great help to us all.

Also, as you may have heard, Thunderdome has gone through rough times in the last year. We have lost some key, founding members. Our founder, David King, suffered injuries in a motorcycle accident and may have to have surgery. With all of this, the task of trying to get to Burning Man seemed almost too daunting to undertake. However, we wouldn't be Thunderdome if we didn't at least try. We're drumming up funds within our own circles but, given the late hour, we are asking for your help.

If you have ever fought in and loved Thunderdome, climbed the dome and screamed your head off, or just walked by and wondered if we're as tough as we pretend to be (shhhh; we're not), *please* consider donating. Any little bit helps; we can't do it without you.

We have set up a paypal account for any donations that you can muster up. Send them to:

12:21 am - seasonal provisioning (eh.5l.4a.2b.1c)
tap tap...

when the current focus needs on my maslow's pyramid have come sufficiently along, i intend to rejoin the exchanges here in banter land. for the moment though, we break with a routine that pushes such things to the corner to share an observation and some opinions.

a much anticipated, and long overdo, gathering of the bloodwell (the born families of my daughters and i) being postponed yet again, i visited the Mission Bazaar and delighted at the number of clan and friends vending and working the event, as well as my first visit inside a building i've lusted about for over a decade and a half.

being a creature of purpose, and intending to walk as much of my talk as i'm able, it pleases me to encourage those of you who do holiday shopping to consider this event tomorrow (sunday, 11-5 at 14th and mission), and to recycle what wealth and assets that we can, not only within the local economy (and for as many cycles as possible - study this, really!), but directly to some quite talented and skilled craftsfolk within our close circles.

official promotion of the event isn't as widespread as the promoters or the vendors would have preferred - and i happily suggest checking it out, and spreading the word.

vendors i encourage looking for are:

andrea costantino - jewelry

and stop by the sound booth to visit baconmonkey and netik
or trilliansf as she patrols the isles managing the floor.

now, back to my precious, and blessed, isolation...
and perhaps baconmonkey's urging was enough to get me out to visit santa pig this month - we'll see.
