Re: “What Did We See?

As a former short term student there in the Bay area, at CR to be exact, your poetic work activated such intense memories within me; of even the scent of the early morning air by the Bay. A uniquely cool, moist, lively smell of Earth and Sea come together. A fond pleasant memory for me at least. Thank you so much for this. :)

Re: “Riverbank Music

I like the idea that you have to be "in...tune" to enjoy it. I like that a lot!

Re: “Polar Extremes: How We View Ourselves Vs. How the World Views Us

Humboldt's a rare place in that many rich and poor are visually indistinguishable. The hills don't breed hoity-toity attitudes about having manicured lawns and polished vehicles, primped hair or clean clothes, it's really very cool like that. In that regard, I think less publicity, and even bad publicity, is good for the real permanent locals like myself who don't welcome the corporatized homogenization that inevitably comes with urbanization. Viva laid back!

Re: “Manifest Destiny

I was very close to him for at least 5 yrs. the thing we mainly had in common were our strong anti-violence and anti-gun stances. I moved to San Diego in 2006 and lost touch with him. his number was disconnected. I later found out he did the Casino Job. but even in that he used no weapons. the only weapon he needed was his mind. wish I could find him again, I'd like to apologize for scolding him in his darkest times. we had a huge amount of shows together. I mastered four of his albums, and provided a lighting experience for his shows. I also did some art for his projects when his main man, David had prior obligations. I miss him, he's a good man. just made a couple of bad choices. ;)

Re: “Rumble in the Redwoods

These people are heroes.

Unless we can teach our children the importance of frivolously burning up the last of the cheap fuel as quickly as possible, they might not see alternative energy developed in their lifetime.

Re: “Lady-Fame

Thank you Bill Cassel for reviewing this book, wait, I mean the pre-Lady-Fame meaning of thank you! Perfect summer reading, move it to the top of your towering stacks of books-to-read (you know who you are)! Ask for it at your local bookstores or do that other thing, that I won't mention in the same sentence. If you love the feel and look of books, please read the print version, as many of the nuances that Bill refers to, are lost on e-readers. I loved editing this book with Peter Santino​, let me know what your experience reading it is like.

Re: “Advice to a Student

Wonderful to teach and be reminded constantly of the despair we once felt as though it had never been felt by anyone before us. I wonder if that's the only way to feel relief; we cannot survive constantly being bled by such despair. To teach implies perspective, distance. Or does it?

Re: “Watch: Flatmo Plays the Fillmore

I don't care what Mr. Flatmo's critics say about the "obscenity" of prolific welding resources and labor used to create a frivolous, carbon-belching monstrosity "El Pupo" during the sixth largest extinction event on Earth that's being rapidly accelerated by carbon-caused climate change.

The U.S. is no longer an entrepreneurial manufacturing leader and our celebrity culture is offering today's youths an opportunity for a critical diversion from their malaise and decades of public divestment, outsourcing, record gaps in income, opportunity and reward. Celebrities want our forgiveness, they're not asking for permission!

Do we want more depressed youths, or do we want them wearing their favorite singer's logo at "El Pupo" concerts, to pour open their lives and data on Facebook and to adopt Apple as a lifestyle?

Celebrities are our kid's institutions!

Instead of a robust public education we have Zuckerberg's rescue of public schools, instead of a vibrant literary culture we have Oprah's book club, instead of investments in public health we have the Gates Foundation.

Celebrities aren't inviting our children to be just like them, celebrity's success is based on leaving everyone else behind.

A small price to pay to allow the rich to save America.

No one can reasonably expect a few folks dressed as Nazis to raise any eyebrows in Eureka.

Re: “COSMOSpolitan

I agree that science is very important but it makes no sense whatsoever to waste public subsidies, facilities and student fees focused on promoting and facilitating a celebrity at $50,000/hour.

HSU was just rated "number-one" in academic divestment in the CSU system by the Ca. Faculty Association while administrators get big salary increases and entertainment is fully funded?
