Re: “Music Tonight: Thursday, March 21

I need to make a correction. In the description of the band The Bandage, I made a typo. The sentence was supposed to read "blender genre" not "blander genre."
I apologize for the error and regret the mistake.

Re: “Local Beefcake: Photos from the Mr. Humboldt Pageant

rlbw: Good eye on the retro use of "beefcake" and thanks for using my preferred title of Ms. Though I'm not sure, if you root through vintage Playgirl magazines, that you'll find any sneering, nor in my approach the fellas in this slideshow, who clearly gave it their all.

It's interesting that it takes so little a handful of men actively and consensually sending up beauty pageants and stereotypes about masculinity for laughs and charity for you to abandon support, if ever you gave it, for nonprofits that feed the hungry, aid families in need and give shelter and comfort to victims of sexual assault.

Likewise the ease with which you dismiss the #MeToo movement and its support of victims of sexual assault and harassment based on, what, looking at men who've taken the stage to be looked at? Consent is the name of the game, rlbw. And as long as nobody engaged with the contestants without it, I don't see the harm in a little striptease from Mr. Queer.

There's a nuanced discussion to be had about male objectification in the context of the patriarchy but the idea that women and femmes must walk a tightrope of chaste, humorless perfection in order to qualify to ask for fair treatment and freedom from violence is just silly.

I suppose we'll all have to carry on without your support. We've done all right without it thus far.

Re: “Local Beefcake: Photos from the Mr. Humboldt Pageant

"Beefcake"? Oh, how very 1970s Playgirl-esque sneering that is, Ms. Cahill.
Humboldt County people, females specifically, many of you are sick.

Why take the #MeToo movement seriously or women's issues in general seriously when so many women have no qualms about engaging in this festival of male body...
> Comparing
> Shaming
> Humiliation
> Stereotyping

Ladies, your protests about misogyny, paternalism and such ring completely hollow when you enthusiastically go for this local gutter depravity.

As for Food for People, I no longer support you. As for North Coast Rape Crisis, the Arcata Family Resource Center, and Planned Parenthood, thanks for reminding me to ignore you.

Stereotyping
Sexist
Humiliation
Body shaming
Boring.

And $29 for "charity".
Pathetic.

Re: “"This is a Load of Barnacles": SpongeBob Super Bowl Backlash

This cartoon character's back-story only appeared once in local papers.

It was an idea that began with his college roommate who lacked the funds to develop it, or a good lawyer to defend it.

HSU deserved more than $135K.

Re: “"This is a Load of Barnacles": SpongeBob Super Bowl Backlash

Re: “The Murder Mountain Docuseries is Upon Us

Cops were corrupt that's why 3 witnesses are dead, plain and simple. The people of Humboldt voted a corrupt cop as sheriff. They were protecting the alleged perpetrator.

Re: “The Murder Mountain Docuseries is Upon Us

During his tenure as sheriff, Mike Downey was renowned for being a do-nothing.
I always thought maybe that was a good thing, given the sheriff departments prior aggression towards tree huggers and pot growers. A passive sheriff is better than a thug for moneyed interests, as was the case when Irv Renner served as big timbers obedient lap dog.
I was nonetheless shocked to hear Mr. Downey explain to a camera that the reason for his departments glaring dereliction of duty in missing persons cases was pure and simple cowardice. According to him his deputies are scared of people with guns and doing nothing is better than asking for help or trying to establish detente with his own understandably cop-shy constituents, a number of whom voted for him and pay property taxes to secure his departments services. Its funny how Mr. Downey was a much braver officer when the feds were providing lots of money for CAMP. He showed little compunction over kicking in the doors of unarmed hippies when he was coming up through the ranks, but nowadays is more cautious.
If former sheriff Downeys determined inaction is not criminal, it should be, and I hope the Murder Mountain show prompts state prosecutors to look into the case. I also hope the families of the disappeared are organizing a class action against Humboldt County and its ever shifty, shady Sheriffs Office.

Re: “What's a Bobarazzi?

Bob!

How are you? I am living in Florida now. Was recently looking through FOIA files and came across something interesting involving the Arcata airport. https://kahoon137.wordpress.com/2018/12/30/fnord/
Hope you don't mind I attached a photo of one of your articles to reinforce the sync. Anywho, all good down here.

Re: “The Murder Mountain Docuseries is Upon Us

Watched it - very slick and dramatic.Condeming CAMP and the perils of legalization,takes Hum Co sheriff to task and waxes nostalgic for the earliest days of Cannibis ag pioneers and attempts at utopian communities with positive legacies.
I'd like to take the focus of the county and see a quality doc about the history of growing in general without these dark human tragedies -
