Praise Song Sitting in a Room

Categories:

In response to a remix call-out on WFMU's Beware of the Blog, I submitted my version of Elizabeth Alexander's ill-advised reading of her poem Praise Song for the Day. There are so many cool versions of this poem there - my favorites are Fatty Jubbo's manic reading where he channel's Elizabeth Claire Prophet, the one by Jonathan Wall's where he simply alphabetizes every word in the poem and People Like Us' language removal version. Mine was more or less a piss-take where I turned it into an avant-garde inside joke (with apology to Alvin Lucier).

Here it is:

Livability or Big Brother: Portland Police's Secret List

The Portland Police Bureau is keeping a list of people arrested most often downtown. The police say that the list, which has grown from 35 to nearly 400, is part of a coordinated strategy to improve livability in Old Town and surrounding neighborhoods by arresting chronic offenders and holding them in jail where they can receive drug, acohol and other treatments to end their criminal behavior. Defense attorneys say that people are being labeled as chronic offenders based on arrests rather than convictions.

chapter three already!

Winter Membership Drive: January 26-31

Categories:

Help support listener-supported KBOO Radio by contributing during our one week Winter membership drive.  Nearly 90% of our annual operating revenue comes from individual donors like you.  Your donation is tax-deductible and is how we are able to broadcast such a diverse mix of music and create nearly 5 hours of locally produced news and public affairs content every weekday.

For this drive, we're producing several public affairs specials this week beginning with a look at the economic crisis and providing alternative views regarding solutions (Monday).  On Wednesday, KBOO continues its long-running coverage of the combined issues of global warming and climate change.  However, we're going to focus more on how we can all reduce the amount of carbon we emit through our daily activities.  And then on Friday we'll explore food and agriculture. 

Then to close out the drive, on Saturday you'll want to make sure you stick around the house all morning, because Music from the True Vine will be hosting a 5-hour, live bluegrass performance special.  More details soon...or listen here and then donate here.  And thanks!

JEEZUS! Chapter One

Categories:

Here it is, your free gift for supporting KBOO.  "JEEZUS!" is a self-published book copyright 2007 by Theresa Mitchell.  These posts are intended to boost KBOO Web readership. 

 

By way of introduction:  "Jeezus!" is a parody of "Left Behind."  This is adult content, so be judicious.  In this first chapter, a cruise ship captain encounters difficulties with his libido, as the Rapture apparently begins.  Enjoy.

JEEZUS!”

First, the good news:

"WASHINGTON — President Obama is expected to sign executive orders Thursday directing the Central Intelligence Agency to shut what remains of its network of secret prisons and ordering the closing of the Guantánamo detention camp within a year, government officials said."  --New York Times

But ongoing:

At least 716,760 people have been killed, and
1,397,255 seriously injured in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Actually, we've killed a million in Iraq and displaced two million.

Gaza's death count from Israeli attacks: 1,284. 4,336 wounded. Vast majority were civilians.

And here's the latest on Bushite fascism:
