The 2005 Seal Hunt: The Battle Continues: http://hsus.ga4.org/campaign/protectseals

The largest commercial slaughter of marine mammals on the planet has begun. By the end of this year's hunt, more than 300,000 seals will have been brutally killed--many of them babies as young as 12 days old. Some of them will have been skinned while still conscious and able to feel pain. Stand with me today and stop the seal hunt forever by joining the Canadian seafood boycott. http://hsus.ga4.org/campaign/protectseals/

Once you've signed the pledge, you'll be able to spot Canadian seafood by using HSUS's downloadable pocket guide to spotting seafood. You can also sign up for Seal Watch, a frequent email that HSUS will send out during the hunt featuring stories and images.

Thanks for joining me in ending this awful hunt.

Please I am just trying to get as many ppl as possible aware of this terrible hunt that started last month. They beat the shit out of these seals and skin them alive. Thats fcuked. Please take 5 minutes out of your day to sign this pledge and to visit the website. If you have a little more time ...its important that you tell as many people as possible about this website and have them sign the pledge. This means a lot to me and it needs to be stopped. Thanks for your time!!!!

Learn more about the hunt at http://www.protectseals.org/

Please help me stop this....its uncalled for!

In recognition of Earth Day, the UC Berkeley Environmental Coalition and the Berkeley Energy Alliance for Renewables is screening "The End of Suburbia: Oil Depletion and the Collapse of the American Dream" — With brutal honesty and a touch of irony, The End of Suburbia explores the American Way of Life and its prospects as the planet approaches a critical era. With oil prices at 25 year highs, and gasoline prices at all time highs, this film is particularly timely. 

Questions and answers following the film with Jan Lundberg, Cal Simone, and others. Jan Lundberg is an energy analyst who published the Lundberg Letter on oil industry trends and now publishes culturechange.org, an online journal focused on ending oil dependency, paving, and disposable plastics. Cal Simone is a Jungian scholar, teacher, and writer who has dedicated his life to bringing what's in the collective unconscious to consciousness. He is writing a book on the current energetic state and trends of the American collective psyche. http://postcarbon.org

A VIP Pass, good for both nights, is a mere $5.00!
     2 nites of mind warping films and videos. Missed John Pauls funeral too? Here's your chance to pick the brains of the Church of the SubGenius pope pickin conclave! "On this slack, I will found my church."  Bob "the rock" Dobbs
     A VIP Pass, good for both nights, is a mere $5.00! I don't understand-- is something wrong  with making a little money? Unlike the upcoming Dr. Hal's SubGenius Science Fiction Movie Festival-- watch for it! --this cinematic SubGenius event will mostly feature non-"Hollywood" fare; view original videos by Dr. Hal, the late Jeff Robins, Doug Wellman, Dr. Philo Drummond, Nancy Denny-Phelps, Mark McGothigan, K-Rob and other visionaries. Multiple screens-- three, count 'em, three separate simultaneous projections! SEE! Ultra-rare films by Bishop Joey and Dr. Howland Owll!
     WATCH the programme on our Giant Screen while stewing stark naked with giggling SubGenius groupies in the luxurious comfort of our bubbling hot tub! EAT a variety of toothsome snacks throughout the evenings! DRINK yourself insensible to enhance the overall mood! (Of course, it helps if you bring the snacks, drugs, groupies etc.) LEARN uncomfortable truths about people you thought you knew as you view their most private, intimate productions! TOLERATE the non-slick but raw and honest entries, examples of Cinema Mediocrité. With surprises, gags, performances, nudity and the transcendentally numinous. Dobbs approved.  Pot luck and BYo your favorites.

# KFC leafleting in San Francisco 4-23-05 NOON.
 We need your help to speak on behalf of chickens being tortured by KFC!

On Saturday, April 23rd at 12:00 noon, please join Gail Camhi and PETA
to protest KFC at Geary Blvd and 6th Ave in San Francisco, CA. For more
information, please contact Gail at gailcamhi24@aol.com. Come out and
show people that the secret in KFC's secret recipe is the torture of
millions of chickens. 
	
KFC is responsible for slitting conscious birds' throats open, and
scalding them while they're still alive.  They cut the beaks off of
mother hens without pain killers and drug their chickens with
antibiotics to keep them alive through conditions that would otherwise
kill them.  Please join our worldwide campaign against KFC by attending
this protest.

# Peak Oil UK:  Entering the Age of Oil Depletion
Royal Museum of Scotland, Chambers Street, Edinburgh
Monday, 25 April 2005, 9:30 AM – 5:00 PM

A one-day conference on the approaching peak and decline in global oil supplies will take place at the Royal Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh on Monday, 25 April.

Increasingly, analysts are forecasting that global oil production could reach its all-time peak before the end of this decade — mirroring the now established pattern of UK North Sea production, and marking a critical turning point when ever-diminishing supplies will challenge the world's economic and social well-being as never before. 
 
Amid mounting concern now about rising oil prices and rapidly growing demand, six leading experts will discuss the 'Peak Oil' problem and its far-reaching economic, social and political implications.

Former Energy Minister Brian Wilson will give the opening address:  Why Britain Needs an Indigenous Energy Policy.

The other speakers will be:

·        Colin Campbell, retired oil industry executive and Chairman of the Association for the Study of Peak Oil (ASPO):  The End of the First Half of the Age of Oil
·        Chris Skrebowski, Trustee of The Oil Depletion Analysis Centre and Editor of the UK Energy Institute's monthly magazine, 'Petroleum Review':  Depletion — The Reality in Action
·        Matthew Simmons, Chairman of major US energy investment firm Simmons & Company International:  Can Market Efficiency Overcome Depletion?  Or Why Economists Don't Get It
·        David Spaven, Chair of TRANSform Scotland, the campaign for sustainable transport, and a transport consultant:  Transport — An Oil Crisis and More
·        Jeremy Leggett, Chief Executive of the UK's leading solar energy company, solarcentury, and a former oil industry consultant:  Half Gone — The Third and Biggest Global Energy Crisis

After the presentations there will be a roundtable discussion with the speakers, moderated by BBC Radio journalist Mark Stephen.

The conference is organised by Depletion Scotland, an Edinburgh-based awareness-raising group, with support from The Oil Depletion Analysis Centre (ODAC).  More than 160 people are expected to attend.

Voices in Motion II:
Conversations Across the Feminist Landscape

Monday April 25, 2005
7-9pm

New College of California
780 Valencia Street, SF
(between 18th & 19th Streets)

FREE! FREE! FREE!

Please come and participate in the second of an ongoing conversation 
addressing critical issues related to feminism (past, present and future), 
and to sex, gender, and gender identity oppression. Our hope is to form an 
inclusive coalition that is respectful of multiple locations and committed 
to ongoing dialogue and action that both celebrates and challenges notions 
of "woman" and feminism in general.

On International Women's Day, 2005 we launched "Voices in Motion: 
Conversations Across a Feminist Landscape" with a gathering that brought 
together panelists and participants from multiple locations: across 
continents and classes; spanning sexualities, generations and cultures; with 
varied gender identities, ethnic identities, and races, but with one reason 
to come together: to begin a conversation about who we are, where we want to 
go, and how to get there.

This meeting is intended as both a continuation of the conversation we began 
on International Women's Day and as a reaching beyond in the hopes of 
forming a Bay Area coalition.

Please invite friends and allies.

All sexes, genders, gender identities, and gender expressions are welcome.
This event is wheelchair accessible.

# Note: this man may save your life. -PlantTrees
Dr. Michael Greger Diet and Health Lecture

The San Francisco Vegetarian Society presents a free lecture by
author, physician and nutrition expert Dr. Michael Gregor on "Cancer
Proofing Your Body with Plant Foods." According to Dr. Gregor, up to
70% of all cancer deaths are preventable through diet alone. In this
dynamic and engaging multimedia presentation, he reveals the top whole
plant super foods that have the potential to block and even reverse
tumor formation. Learn what free radicals and antioxidants really are
and exactly how they work to protect your body from the ravages of
aging, cancer and other chronic degenerative diseases. Profiling
specific cancers (such as breast and prostate), Dr. Gregor shows how a
phyto-nutrient rich plant-based diet may be our best protection
against the cancer epidemic.

This is a great lecture to attend whether or not you are a vegetarian.
In fact, it may be of special interest to your non-vegetarian friends
and relatives, so be sure to invite them.

Plant Foods."             Monday, April 25 at 7:00 p.m.

# 4/26: Bad guys are killing the Monarchs  (alameda) 
Noon talk in Alameda at the Elks Lodge describing how real armed Mexican "banditos" are illegally cutting the old-growth pine forest where beautiful Monarch butterflies winter almost 2,000 miles to the south of here. Speaker Danielle Lee of the Michoacan Reforestation Fund will tell of huge losses in the number of Monarchs that usually migrate each spring northward into the U.S., where their caterpillars benefit everyone by eating noxious weeds. Mexican government "federales" try to stop the "banditos," but they can't keep up with the illegal logging, and the precious forests are being decimated. It's urgent that Americans join the campaign to offset what the bad guys are doing, says Lee, who will talk at 12 noon downstairs in the rathskeller of the Elks Lodge, 2255 Santa Clara Ave., to the Isle City Branch of Sons In Retirement.

*WAR ON IRAQ*
"Iraq possesses huge reserves of oil and gas – reserves I'd love
Chevron to have access to."
- Chevron CEO Kenneth T. Derr, San Francisco, 1988.

"So I think this is very promising to the American investors and to
American enterprise, certainly to oil companies."
- Bush-Backed Iraqi Vice President and former Finance Minister Abdel Mahdi
 on
plans for a new law to privatize Iraq's oil, and open it to foreign
ownership, December 2004.

ChevronTexaco has profited from Iraq's oil for a decade. It sold
Iraqi oil under the UN's Oil-for-Food Program and it was the first oil
company to sell Iraq's oil after the 2003 invasion of Iraq. It refines
that oil in Richmond. ChevronTexaco's Iraqi war profits, plus its
unprecedented profits from the increased price of oil due to the war, made
2004 the most profitable year in ChevronTexaco's 125-year
history.

*OUR SONS, DAUGHTERS, HUSBANDS, WIVES AND FRIENDS SHOULD NOT DIE OR KILL
FOR CHEVRONTEXACO'S BOTTOM LINE
*
ChevronTexaco's 2004 net income was more than $13 billion, compared to $7
billion in 2003. ChevronTexaco's biggest worry? What to do with all its
excess cash. The answer? Pass the savings on to consumers in the form of
reduced gas prices? NO. Demand that the Bush
Administration end a war to expand U.S. access to oil? NO.
ChevronTexaco – like the other world oil companies, is hording the cash,
putting it into cash reserves for a rainy day and expanding
their global empire by acquiring new companies – like their recent
purchase of oil giant Unocal. The people are fighting back to oppose war
for oil and you can join us on Wednesday, April 27!

*WAR ON ECUADOR
*Between 1971 and 1991, Texaco extracted more than 1.5 billion barrels of
oil from the Ecuadorian Amazon, devastating one of the most
biologically fragile places on earth by destroying rainforests and
creating massive oil spills. In order to save millions of dollars, Texaco
simply dumped 20 billion gallons of highly toxic wastes from its
operations into the pristine rivers, forest streams and wetlands, ignoring
industry standards. Now, ChevronTexaco denies the effected peoples of
Ecuador their right to compensation, and instead is trying to get back
into Ecuador for a new round of devastation. The people of Ecuador are
fighting back. They have sued ChevronTexaco for over $6 billion in
compensation for their lost health, land, lives and way of living.

*WAR ON RICHMOND*
The ChevronTexaco refinery in Richmond spews a deadly array of toxins into
the air, water, and land, including cancer-causing dioxins, on the largely
African American, South East Asian and Latino communities. Since 1999,
there has been a 20% increase in toxic emissions in
Richmond and most of the increase can be attributed to the Chevron
Refinery, the largest polluter in the city. The refinery and plant have
had hundreds of accidents, including major fires, spills, leaks,
explosions, toxic gas releases, flaring and air contaminations
inflicting severe illnesses including asthma and deadly cancers, on the
people of Richmond. Despite decades of requests, demands, lawsuits and
protests, Chevron has continued to place executive salaries and corporate
profits over the health and safety of the community and
workers. The people of Richmond are fighting back and demanding that
Chevron clean up or get out.

# Wed April 27 Urban Futures: Planning for Sustainable Urban Development

Join us for a presentation by Professor Raquel Pinderhughes, author 
of "Alternative Urban Futures: Planning for Sustainable Development 
in Cities throughout the World." Any consideration of sustainable 
development must focus on utilizing processes and technologies that 
are less damaging to the natural resource base, produce less waste, 
and do not pose a threat to human and environmental health. Focusing 
on water, waste, energy, transportation and food systems, and using 
examples from cites around the world, Professor Raquel Pinderhughes 
will discuss how alternative planning and policy approaches, and 
appropriate technologies can reduce the negative social and 
environmental impacts associated with urban infrastructure and lead 
to improvements in public health, the natural resource base, economic 
development, and an increased standard of living and well-being for 
urban residents. Professor Pinderhughes is Director of the Urban 
Studies Program and Professor of Urban Studies and Environmental 
Studies at San Francisco State University. She teaches courses on 
environmental planning and policy focused primarily on sustainable 
development and environmental justice. She is a resident of Berkeley 
and a member of the Ecology Center Board of Directors.

Victor Olenov
Victor's visionary art deals with two magical aspects inherent in the transformational power of IMAGE and its reflection of the ongoing continuous simultaneous creation underlying the static "surface reality."

The first aspect is what is called a "totemic portrait." Totemic portraits are a shamanic approach to healing as well as to the cultivation and storage of power through the image of a personal totem - manifested personal spirit.

The second aspect of the work deals with images that are spirit-catchers for the spirits that are not personal, but rather are the energetic entities acting as agents of Eternal Life.
http://arthealing.org

Andres Amador
The most developed of my explorations into the principles of sacred geometry, fractals, chaos, and patterns in nature has been my light sculptures. Using the basic constituent of string on a frame to create curves from solid lines, I bridge the analog and the digital, displaying the place in reality where substructures are revealed. My latest series, "Pixels' examines the most fundamental components necessary to relay a message. Individually the parts in the 'Pixels' series have little to say, but when arranged properly in large numbers, whole new universes of possibilities are born. 
analogia.org

Rena Jones
Electric violinist & cellist Rena Jones is currently celebrating the release of her newest album "Transmigration" which is already receiving radio play and rave reviews. 
renamusic.com

Phidelity
this international man of mystery will be laying his unique multi-layered soundscape percussive psychedelic dubbed out beats to the mix. 
phidelity.com

Kyrian
SO the first thought that comes to mind is... psychedelic Tuuvan beat boxing? huh... multi-harmonic drones done up in a tight hiphop beat boxing framework with a stylistic quirkiness only Kyrian could muster... ok I get it now...errr. Kyrian will be doing a Beat Box Puppet show as well as the jam session with Rena and Kris.

Interface Oblivion
IO has been tripping out with their own musical vibe since 1993. They blend a distinct sound of syncopated electronic backing beds with ripping beats, live melodic compositions, heavy bass, dub and vocals. IO's evolving blend of live improv with triggered looping and energetically charged compositions shake up the current musical molds.

IO's performances blend the open structure of improv fusion with meticulously composed songs. They perform with bass, keys, guitar, vocals, dub and tight algorithmic beats to elevate the soul. 
http://www.interfaceoblivion.com

VJ Mickey T
Mickey is a Vj in the truest sense of the word, rather than trigger low quality compressed video loops, Mickey's style is clean high quality with his analog gear and effects couple with his distinct style. He also hosts the Whitebox VIP lounge which does events similar to ours and is highly recommended.

#  Sat May 7, 5-8 PM  Celebrating National Masturbation Month at the Parkway Theatre -- There are many reasons to masturbate, but probably none as important as pleasure -- so to welcome this year's National Masturbation Month, we're going to celebrate orgasm with Good Vibrations Founder Emerita Joani Blank and her unique movie Orgasm! The Faces of Ecstasy. Joani and her colleagues from Libido Video interviewed twenty-two Bay Area residents (male, female, and trans, aged 22 to 68) and then asked them to have orgasms for the cameras. Shot only from the shoulders up, the resulting movie is an intensely intimate yet non-explicit exploration of human sexual response, and you've never heard anything as thought-provoking as their interviews. (Note for masturbation purists: a few orgasms in this video result from partner sex.)
   Joani Blank will be on hand to talk about making Orgasm! Faces of Ecstasy -- and she'll bring some of the movie's stars to talk about their
experience getting intimate with the camera. Hosted by Dr. Carol Queen (who is one of the performers in Orgasm!), and co-sponsored by Good
Vibrations and The Center for Sex & Culture.

#   BURNING RIVER – June 25 & 26
 Saturday & Sunday, 2 hours north of the Bay Area on the Upper Cache River
 Can you imagine 100+ Burners on a fabulous, hot, sunny day on the river?  We can dress in crazy attire, have water battles (Super Soakers are a must), chill out on the beaches and just enjoy being in a wet, tree-lined environment with amazing scenery right before our eyes.  Once you are on the river, there is nothing to do but have fun and relax.  All meals are taken care of and all gear is sent ahead.  The most you have to worry about is loosing your paddle and having to swim.
 At night, we can put on the Bling!Bling!, light up our e-poi/e-staffs while dazzling the natives by the river's edge.  With a little coordination, we could set up our own cozy village with a community bar among the trees and deeply connect with one another.
 If we get enough interest, we may be able to take over one campsite for ourselves (run the music, stay up all night, etc.) and have leverage to book a campground on the way for the preceding Friday night stay or perhaps negotiate discount rooms at the local casino for Friday night.  Stay tuned for these opportunities…
 This is an all-inclusive, family-oriented (12 yrs +/min. 65 lbs.) event so we encourage you to bring the whole Burner family and to post this announcement out to other Burner communities.  The company running it has Burners on the payroll but the guests will be a mix of Burners and non-Burners – our goal is to make it mostly Burners! 
 The scheduled trip includes 2 days of volcanic river canyon rafting (rated class 3 but is mostly class 2) in either a 2 person 'ducky' or a 4 persons raft.  The $139 pp fee includes all on-river meals and evening entertainment, life jacket, camping fees, parking, raft rental, paddles and shuttle service.  There will be some free tickets for those in our community who cannot afford this adventure but passionately want to attend.
 2 hours north of the Bay Area on the Upper Cache River.
