Tantra combines deep states of relaxation in the body with states of 
high arousal ... Love is so kind to our 
environment, unlike many other forms of gratification, is free of cost, 
and leads to the opposite of violence and war. "In an age of divorce 
and sexually transmitted diseases we need nothing more than to form 
stronger and more lasting bonds of love. Tantra lights the way." (from )

# Fri Oct 14 9:00 PM Encounter Studio  555 De Haro Street #120  party  8pm - late 
 Please join us for the grand opening of Encounter Studio, a new art/performance space in Potrero Hill. We're building a small theater and sound studio in a live/work space. The building used to be a soap factory, now it's all offices except for one other artist collective: False Profit are our neighbors. 
Although the theater isn't finished yet, we have renovated the space enough to hold parties, film screenings, and music performances. Our 1,000 sq. ft. performance area can easily support an audience of 50 or more, with high-end video projection in a comfortable atmosphere. Now it's time to celebrate! 
In the earlier part of the night we will have an artists' salon featuring our own work. Simran will have his "Haunted Garden" sound installation running. Hallie will perform interactive improv with audience participation. I'll show some of my evil mind control video art. There will be a couple other surprises along the way. 
After midnight, there will be partying and dancing until whenever. We'll provide snacks and some alcohol, but it might not be a bad idea to bring reinforcements.

BART runs around the clock during the October 15th weekend

BART trains run Friday night through Saturday morning & Saturday night through Sunday morning

For the first time since the Millennium, BART trains will be running around the clock during the October 15th weekend to make sure Bay Area residents and workers can get between the East Bay and San Francisco while Caltrans shuts down all eastbound lanes on the Bay Bridge for overnight earthquake retrofit work.

Normally BART service ends around midnight. However, this weekend BART trains will zip back and forth across the Bay from Friday night through Saturday morning and then again on Saturday night through Sunday morning. The service will only be hourly, so please download the timetable of scheduled service.

Trains will only stop at the following 21 stations:


24th Street/Mission
Balboa Park

Bay Fair
Downtown Berkeley
El Cerrito Del Norte
Lake Merritt
MacArthur (AC Transit Transfer Point)
Coliseum/Oakland Airport
Pittsburg/Bay Point
Walnut Creek

San Francisco International Airport
AC Transit will offer connecting service at the MacArthur BART Station. Visit or for additional information.

The last time BART offered overnight train service was between December 31, 1999 through January 1, 2000 for the Millennium celebrations.

Ironically, the time previous to that was also because of Bay Bridge construction work. BART was a lifeline for commuters and the economy after the October 17, 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake collapsed a portion of the bridge?s upper deck, shutting it down for a month while crews repaired the bridge. BART ran 24-hours a day for nearly the entire time the bridge was down.

BART does not provide regular 24-hour service because many essential maintenance activities can only take place when the system is shut down. This maintenance work is essential for both operational safety reasons and to ensure the longterm reliability of the system.

BART supplemental and extended service during the October 15th weekend has be made possible by funding from Caltrans.

# GI Rights Hotline Training October 15
 A crucial element to slowing the military machine is helping individual GIs get out of the military!  As CCCO has done since 1948, we are supporting individuals in their resistance and opposition to war.  In particular, we are standing with a group of people —GI’s whose questioning and resistance are increasing and becoming better known

 The GI Rights hotline is staffed by a network of organizations throughout the United States and in Germany.  In 2004 we received 32,000 calls from people who needed help obtaining discharge from the military.  Increasingly, people are also using email to contact us and we sent about 3,000 emails in response to email queries.  

The hotline provides accurate, comprehensive, and objective information on draft registration, military discharges, civil rights in the military, and involuntary activation and deployment of military personnel.  The work we do and the information we disseminate are known to enlisted people in numbers far greater then the thousands with whom we communicate personally.

We are seeking additional military counselors to volunteer on the Hotline.  Tasks include answering live phone calls, returning phone messages, responding to email inquiries, and making referrals to relevant organizations and individuals.  Volunteers make an initial one- year commitment of at least 2 hours of service per week.

 CCCO will be holding a GI Rights volunteer training on 
 Saturday, October 15, 2005  9am – 5pm
 405 14th St., Suite #205 Oakland, CA
 Pr-registration required by September 26
 For more information or to register for the training, call 
 510-465-1617 or  888-231-2226
 Or email
 The training will provide an overview of all the discharges, AWOL practices and regulations, and  legal and ethical issues in hotline counseling.

# Graveyard Games San Francisco Saturday, October 15 2 PM - 3:20 PM FREE
Graveyard Games SAN FRANCISCO

You're never too dead to play.

  On Saturday October 15, 2005, Graveyard Games will be in Colma, San  
Francisco's very own City of the Dead, so you can meet the living and  
play with the dead.

  You're invited to the Italian Cemetery to get to know your local  
dearly departed, pay your respects, and learn Tombstone Hold 'Em-the  
secret poker game you can only play in a cemetery.


1. Arrive at the Italian Cemetery (540 F Street, Colma, CA 94014, 2  
blocks from Colma BART station) on Saturday October 15 between 1:30  
PM and 2:00 PM.

2. Look for your host near the main entrance, under the white arch.  
She'll be holding a deck of cards. She will have further instructions  
and supplies for you.

3. Bring a single flower to place on a grave to show some respect,  
and to signal that you're one of us.

4. Take a few minutes to explore the cemetery. Look for any poker  
chips left on tombs. You'll need these to play.

5. Be sure to look for the grave of someone you can prove died on  
your birthday. You can use that tombstone as a Joker during the game.

6. Tombstone Hold 'Em Tournament begins at 2 PM. Here's a tip: learn  
the rules ( before you  
come. We'll have instructions on hand for any friends you bring along.

7. For non-poker players, there will be other creative, playful  
things to do. And expect a few surprises.

8. The winner is crowned at 3 PM. No fancy prizes, but lots of  
respect, and maybe a special memento from beyond the grave. Plus,  
everyone can keep the chips they earn as a souvenir.

9. After 3 PM, you're invited to nearby Globe Tavern (7379 Mission  
St) to raise a glass to the players you're leaving underground at the  
Italian Cemetery.

By the way, if anyone asks--you're here for the last call.

Italian Cemetery 540 F Street Colma, CA 94014

# 10/15: George Bush Going Away Party - Evening of Political Comedy  (downtown / civic / van ness
 2nd Annual   Sat, Oct 15th @ 8pm 
 Partial proceeds benefit CCCO's "Military Out of Our Schools" program 

 Featuring a multicultural variety of political comedians from both New York and San Francisco: 
 -Bill Santiago (The Latino Laugh Festival; Comedy Central's Premium Blend) 
 -Diane Amos (The Pine Sol Lady; film actress) 
 -Lisa Geduldig (Producer of Kung Pao Kosher Comedy, Funny Girlz, Charo) 
 -Scott Blakeman (New York's premier political comic) 
 -Alana Devich (Semi-finalist in Comedy Central's "Laugh Riots" competition) 
 -Ross Turner (Veteran of several "Bush Bash" political comedy shows) 
 -Aundre the Wonderwoman (Anti-death penalty advocate by day; comic by night) 

 Last year's sold out show, on the eve of the presidential "elections" was a success but failed to send Bush back to Crawford so we're trying again. With his approval rating sinking to a new low of 38%, coupled with his record on Iraq, and his slow and bungling response to Hurricane Katrina, we figured we'd try once more to usher Bush out and send him back home while continuing to provide needed political comic relief to the citizens of the Bay Area. Medical studies show that laughter IS the best medicine; endorphins will be handed out in the aisles.

# Oct 15-23 Dear Animal Advocates, Guardians, Vigilers, Lovers and Liberators,
 National Primate Liberation Week (October 15-23) is coming soon, and I must admit I have nothing solid planned for the occasion.  So, if someone wants to help plan something, we should have a meeting soon - like next week, I would say.  I am open to getting together on October 11, 12, & 13 (in the PM) and brainstorm & see what we come up with - I was thinking of asking the university to phase out all experiments on monkeys - for ethical and scientific reasons.  Let me know what you think. Please let me know which date above best works for you to meet with others to discuss NPLW - and other matters related to UCSF. Bob O'Brien vigilforanimals yahoo com

# stilt-walking workshop for adults at the Crucible in Oakland this Sat & Sun; Oct 15th & 16th!

# Going Deeper With The Four Agreements

October 16th------FREE Introductory Night 
October 23rd------Be Impeccable with Your Word 
November 6th-----Don’t Take Anything Personally 
November 20th----Don’t Make Assumptions 
December 4th------Always Do Your Best 

Everything we experience is based on agreements we have made – with ourselves, with other people, with god, with life. But the most important agreements are the ones we make with ourselves. In these agreements we tell ourselves who we are, how to behave, what is possible, what is impossible. Using The Four Agreements as a guide, this transformative class series will uncover what agreements you hold for your life, teach you how to clear out old agreements that no longer serve you, and to create new ones that reflect your life’s vision. Participants will be guided deeply into themselves to discover how to live life rooted in love and abundance rather than fear. Presented by Rainbow Marifrog, certified Circle Guide from the Center of Creative Intent. This class is a pre-requisite for the six-month Toltec Shamanic Apprenticeship beginning in January 2006. All genders welcome. The Four Agreements is a recommended text. Come early for free, live music! 

Cost per Class: First night free, then $15 - $10, sliding scale. 10% Series Discount.

Presenter Bio: Rainbow Marifrog is an inspired teacher of Toltec Shamanism, who has walked the path for many years.

A current graduate student of Somatic Psychotherapy, she also uses a holistic, body-oriented approach that grounds these expansive, shamanic processes in the body.

#  Talk Mogadishu: Media Under Fire (Amnesty International screening)
 Sunday, October 16th 5:00pm $5
The story of HornAfrik, the first community TV and radio station in  
Somalia. A decade after the disastrous US humanitarian intervention  
in Somalia, HornAfrik, the first independent TV and radio station in  
war-ravaged Mogadishu, was established by three brave Somali- 
Canadians in the face of chaos and devastation. Their vision was to  
forge a path to peace through freedom of expression, impartial news,  
and debate. The station's talk shows have become incredibly popular,  
providing a unique way for Mogadishu's marginalized residents,  
including women's groups and human advocates, to speak out without  
being silenced. It is a venture not without danger; HornAfrik has  
been attacked more than once by angry warlords displeased with the  
station's content. Despite the perils, the founders of HornAfrik  
continue their broadcasts, creating a blueprint for the role of the  
media in times of conflict.

Speaker: Natoschia Scruggs
Fulbright Scholar to Senegal, Natoschia will speak about the media,  
war and the breakdown of civil society. Originally from NYC, she has  
lived in Cote d'Ivoire for one year and has traveled throughout 8  
African countries. She is currently a doctoral student in African  
Diaspora Studies at UC Berkeley, and holds degrees international  
relations (BA), political science and African Studies (MA) and  
African American Studies (MA). She is also an intern with the Amnesty  
International Film Festival as Film Researcher.

# Sex-Positive Parenting Salon and Discussion Sun Oct 16 7pm 
Center for Sex and Culture, 398 11th Street at Harrison 
Please join us for a forum discussion on sex-positive parenting.
This workshop is intended for parents who have chosen to be sex-positive and to share sex-positive values with their children. We live in a society with many mixed messages about sexuality. Many of us rejected our parents’ values in order to become sex-positive people. Now, raising children of our own, we find we are unsure how to communicate our values to our children and what information we should share or not share.
Because the event will be an open forum, we will address whatever issues individuals bring to the table. However, some of the general issues we are sure to discuss are polyamory; Paganism and alternative spirituality; interfaith unions; bisexual, homosexual, and heterosexual partnerships.
This event has arisen out of the concerns individuals have brought to the Center for Sex and Culture and the ideas of our current intern, Michelle Mueller. Michelle, student of the Graduate Theological Union, has a special interest in developing mentorship and sexual education programs for Pagan youth. Michelle co-founded a student Pagan group at Bryn Mawr College and was Assistant Coordinator for Teen Programs at Circle Sanctuary’s Free Spirit Gathering 2005. In the 2005-2006 academic year, Michelle intends to volunteer at UC Berkeley as a religious advisor for Wiccan and Pagan undergraduates. Although Michelle is not a parent, she enjoys mediating between Pagan or sex-positive parents and their teenagers.
Please bring any books or resources you think other parents would appreciate.

Here's all the detail about the 10/16 day-long workshop on legal issues for sex workers: 
A Legal Defense Seminar for Adult Entertainers, featuring Harvard educated criminal defense attorney Katya Komisaruk, will be held at the Center For Sex & Culture on Sunday October 16th.

This is a private seminar that will be limited to 30 screened participants. You must be a sex worker/adult entertainer to attend this seminar. People from all areas of the industry will attend: exotic dancers, BDSM professionals, massage therapists, escorts, tantric practioners, sexological body workers, transgendered entertainers, etc. To attend send an email to and include a link to one of your ads and your phone number.

This seminar will teach adult entertainers about the laws of California as they relate to the adult entertainment business. Subjects covered include: what the laws are so that you don’t break them, how to handle encounters with law enforcement agents, safety tactics during arrest, how to use your right to remain silent and see a lawyer, resisting interrogation, arrest and search warrants, rights of non-US citizens, and reporting police misconduct. There will be lectures, Q&A sessions, role playing drills, and you will also get one-on-one time with the attorney who can review your personal ad and website copy.

The cost of this all day seminar including lunch is $100. Lunch will be a catered vegetarian, vegan and raw food. You may purchase your ticket by cash or credit/debit card in advance. No tickets will be sold at the door and the event is expected to sell out.

You may also wish to bring additional money to purchase autographed copies of Katya’s Book “Beat The Heat: How To Handle Encounters With Law Enforcement” ($10) or to purchase a scented heart candle that will benefit a local sex worker charity ($25).

Pens/Pencils, Notepad, extra money for books or candles, anything else you want to eat/drink or share with the group, printed copies of your ads or website copy, emails and websites.

Hookahdome is a seven-year-old Burning Man theme camp that offers a full-service hookah lounge with talented entertainment, a fire-lit Esplanade performance and dance area, and the Magic Flying Carpet art car. We have become happy members of the neighborhood around the 3:30 to 5:00 side of town. At Burning Man 2005, Hookahdome served thousands of BRC citizens, and hosted some of the most attended get-togethers and live performances.

This year, our artists and engineers continue to perfect the experience we'll offer up to the city. This party is intended to help fund some of the fantastic innovations we have up our sleeve for Burning Man 2006. All proceeds from your ticket price will directly help fund the expense of exhibiting the Hookahdome again in all her glory.

# Film x 2 Night Thu Oct 20 7pm & 9pm FREE.

 From French director Henri-Georges Clouzot. Capturing the moment and  
the mystery of creativity, for this film, Picasso created 20  
artworks, ranging from playful black-and-white sketches to widescreen  
color paintings. Using inks that bled through the paper, Picasso  
rapidly created fanciful drawings that Clouzot was able to film from  
the reverse side, capturing their creation in real time. This month  
commemorates Picasso's 124th birthday.

Fela Anikulapo Kuti (1938-1997) was a Nigerian colossus, a prolific  
singer-composer who played keyboards, trumpet and saxophone. Fela hit  
upon what he called Afro-beat, a seductive, explosive groove wherein  
highlife and Yoruba folklore were fused with American jazz, R&B and  
funk. This new sound, charged with searing anti-colonial lyrics,  
became the vehicle for political dissent. Fela was repeatedly  
harassed and jailed due to his political views. By the time of his  
death from an AIDS-related illness, he had transformed African music  
for all time. This film overflows with fervent live performances,  
frank interviews and exudes genuine Lagos street credo circa 1982.

# Live Son Jarocho Music/Taco Bell Boycott Victory Celebration
 Thu Oct 20 7:00 PM Free

Sponsored by KPFA, the Oakland Institute and many Bay Area CIW allies.


* SON DEL CENTRO, a spirited Son Jarocho music group out of Santa  
Ana, CA

a Florida-based farmworker organization
(Gerardo has worked in the fields since age 11, first as a peasant  
farmer in Zacatecas, Mexico, and later in the fields of Florida.  He  
joined the CIW shortly after his arrival in the U.S. in 2000 and has  
become a dynamic community organizer and nationally-recognized human  
rights leader.)

After nearly four years of a tenacious and growing national boycott,  
Taco Bell and its parent company, Yum Brands, finally agreed to take  
responsibility for the sweatshop conditions in their supply chain.   
On March 8th of this year, Taco Bell signed an historic agreement to  
"work with the CIW to improve working and pay conditions for  
farmworkers in the Florida tomato fields."

This ground-breaking agreement set several important precedents,  
including the first-ever direct, ongoing payment by a fast-food  
industry leader to farmworkers in its supply chain; the first-ever  
enforceable Code of Conduct for agricultural suppliers in the fast- 
food industry (which includes the CIW as part of the investigative  
body for monitoring worker complaints); and market incentives for  
agricultural suppliers willing to respect their workers' human  
rights, even when those rights are not guaranteed by law.

The boycott victory was celebrated by supporters from former  
President Jimmy Carter to former guitarist for Rage Against the  
Machine, Tom Morello, who said of the agreement, "This is a major  
victory for the workers and demonstrates that by standing up and  
standing together, we can overturn any injustice.  By standing up and  
standing together, we can change to world."  The US. Congressional  
Hispanic Caucus remarked, "This is a truly historic agreement,  
marking perhaps the single greatest advance for farm workers since  
the early struggles of the United Farm Workers."

Come hear the story of how farmworkers from one of the country's  
poorest towns took on a corporate giant larger than McDonald's...and  
won!  Learn how they organized an aggressive national campaign of  
creative actions and mass mobilizations that never wavered, grew  
stronger with the commitment of youth, religious and union allies,  
and finally convinced the world's largest restaurant company to  
change the way it does business forever.

Join Son del Centro and the Bay Area community to honor the CIW's  
innovative work and celebrate this important victory for human rights.

Live community music - a "fandango" - will follow the CIW  
presentation.  Bring your musical instruments if you have them!

 Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi Hosts Art Opening of Tim Gaskin'sWork

"My work is a statement on how artists and advertising brands become  

On Friday, October 21, 2005, Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi hosts the  
monthly Third Friday's Art Reception in his City Hall office, Room  
282. This month's featured artist is Tim Gaskin.

Tim Gaskin is a third-generation San Franciscan, pop artist, and  
television and print journalist. He has been influenced by left-coast  
politics, the sexual revolution, television, magazines, fashion, the  
HIV/AIDS pandemic, local art, and dance music. Gaskin uses his art to  
transform and enhance the environment of others. His work has been  
called "inspired pop art, each seeking the balance of nature and flow  
of energy with just the right mix." His Superstar Collection includes  
strikingly vibrant Warhol-esque portraits of contemporary pop-culture  
icons. Gaskin is also the producer and host of Comcast's first LGBT  
show OUT Spoken.

 .How propaganda affects news sources and corrupts democracy.
 Historic and current video clips will be shown to illustrate commercial and political propaganda.

Chet Helms was one of the founding fathers of the psychedelic movement from the 1960's. As promoter for the "Family Dog", Chet developed the concept of the modern rock concert and was one of the founding fathers of the 1960's peace movement that swept the nation and made waves around the world. Chet was also the catalyst that brought together Janis Joplin with Big Brother and the Holding Company, which helped shape the San Francisco sound. Without Chet Helms, as many have said, there would be no Grateful Dead, no Jefferson Airplane, no Big Brother and the list goes on and on. He promoted other acts like the Charlatans, the Great Society, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Peter Tosh, The Clash and countless others. Chet Helms continued promoting pivotal concerts through four decades. In the 60's at the Avalon Ballroom, Family Dog at the Beach, S.F. Golden Gate Park, Denver Dog, and Crystal Ballroom in Portland.

# Tue Nov 15 6pm “Peak Oil: How It Will Change Your Life”
in Grass Valley: Renowned Authority Richard Heinberg Presents
Nevada City, CA – October 31, 2005 – Cheap, abundant oil is now a thing of the past. How can ordinary households and local government and businesses respond to this unprecedented challenge and soften its impact on our lives? Alliance for Post Petroleum Local Economy (APPLE of Nevada County) is sponsoring Richard Heinberg’s timely presentation on the repercussions of the rising oil costs, what “Peak Oil” means, and how local communities can prepare. Come Tuesday, November 15, 2005, to Center for the Arts in Grass Valley. Doors open at 6pm, the presentation begins at 7pm. Admission is $15 and tickets are available online at Center for the Arts website  and at Briarpatch, Bookseller, Yabobo, The Love Shack Records, and in Auburn at Cherry Records, as well as at the door.
Richard Heinberg, widely regarded as America’s foremost peak oil educator, will discuss the most recent evidence regarding the timing of the global oil production peak, its likely consequences, and what can be done at both the international and local levels. He is the author of The Party's Over: Oil, War and the Fate of Industrial Societies (2003), and Powerdown: Options and Actions for a Postcarbon World (2005). 
In the wake of hurricanes Katrina and Rita, communities across America are taking a long, hard look at how to prepare for crises of any kind. Peak Oil presents a very long emergency with far-reaching domino effects, and Heinberg is a world-renowned authority on this topic. The author will be signing books immediately following the presentation.
Alliance for Post Petroleum Local Economy (APPLE of Nevada County) is an outgrowth of The Town Hall Conference last spring and will have information tables on how to get involved. The APPLE Workgroups are focused on energy, transportation, food and water, health and preparedness, and outreach/education.

The Great Owl Invasion
obvious and blatant freemasonic symbols on the dollar bill, what precisely that hidden microscopic owl is doing there.
Neither will we ever be certain whether those plans for the National Mall surrounding the White House, the Washington Monument and the U.S. Capital proposed by the McMillan Commission in the same year that the Bohemian Owl worshipers legally acquired their grove in California, had anything to do with why there appears to be a Giant Owl surrounding the Capitol Building.

As an American citizen I am bound by no law executed by Bush Coup.

Wake UP America, the current organized crime family running Washington, DC
