Watch this short about TV and more...
http://www.5min.com/Video/The-truth-behind-commercial-television-9716
Recent research at the National Institute of Mental Health conducted by Peter Jensen concluded, "Extensive exposure to television and video games may promote development of brain systems that scan and shift attention at the expense of those that focus attention."
Let's take a look at how this works inside the brain and what we can do about it.


New World Order impact on Texas
First Texas, then California, then Nevada, who know's?
Bush can call in World War III, and he'll remain in power like Castro.
Who wants to start first? Friends,
Former Mexican President Vincente Fox spilled the New World Order  
agenda for the U.S.A. on Larry King Live: erasing borders and a  
common currency.

Monkeys Can Die from Bananas
"Contrary to the stereotype, bananas are not the preferred 
food of monkeys in the wild. Bananas, especially those 
containing pesticides can be upsetting to the monkeys' 
delicate digestive system and cause serious dental problems 
that can lead to eventual death."    - sing in Costa Rica


When buying AUTO PARTS or other parts: try this line:
"can I get a price on a..."
then they give it to you.
And you say: "ok, thank you."
Indicating that you understand the price BUT you are not jumping on it or buying it.
In this way you are establishing you are not a sucker.
In the future when phoning any place,
Always use that line.  
"can I get a price on a..."
That will tend to get you a lower price BECAUSE
that way you sound like a professional, and not a sucker.
They have a wide range of pricing they can quote you.
So depending on the place... It is best to appear to be IN THE KNOW.
TELL A FRIEND! This is so important!

 *Protest* Tony Blair in Oakland!! -- Paramount Theater
Tuesday October 23 8:00 PM - 10:30 PM PARAMOUNT THEATER 2025 BROADWAY
(at 20th & BROADWAY, Downtown Oakland) OAKLAND, CA (BART STN. at 19TH ST. & BDWY)
*************** PROTEST!!! ***************
*************BE THERE EARLY!!!************
Check *this* out!...: not content with the death & debacle in Iraq, Blair is chompin' at the bit for an attack/war on Iran!
If you liked the first movie, you'll LOVE the sequel!
Read about Blair's "lets go to war --again-- this time with Iran" speech he just gave in New York -- just in time for the Thanksgiving/Christmas season, I suppose.
(Yeah..., "Pass the gravy", "Peace on Earth" & "Goodwill to All".)
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/americas/7052080.stm
Apparently he's on a speaking tour to whip up war fever for yet *another* war.
And trying to live out England's past glories through the U.S. and being Bush's yap dog.
Btw, this is the same speaker series organizers that brought another WAR CRIMINAL, the ZIONIST WAR CRIMINAL, BENJAMIN NETANYAHU, to Berkeley back in 2000. Apparently they like RIGHT-WINGERS, PSEUDO-'LIBERAL' POSERS, MASS HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATORS and WAR CRIMINALS.
LET'S GIVE "BUSH'S POODLE" A 'WARM' -- A *VERY* 'WARM' -- BAY AREA WELCOME!

6.30 pm Wednesday, Oct. 24 The Power of Community + Crude Awakening  UCBerkely
     Crude Awakening tells the story of how our civilization’s addiction to oil puts it on a collision course with geology. Shot on location at oil fields in Azerbaijan, Venezuela, the Middle East and Texas, the film visits with the world’s top experts and comes to a startling, but logical conclusion – our industrial society, built on cheap and readily available oil, must be completely re-imagined and overhauled.
     With Panelists: Monica Moore (Pesticide Action Network, North America) and Miguel Altieri (Prof. of AgroEcology, UC Berkeley) Willow Rosenthal (City Slickers Farms) Antonio Roman-Alcala (Allemany Farm)
Discussion theme: What will Agriculture look like post-peak oil?

October 25: 9pm The Wind That Shakes the Barley     FREE MOVIE
Ireland, 1920. Damien and Teddy are brothers. But while the latter is already the leader of a guerrilla squad fighting for the independence of his motherland, Damien, a medical graduate of University College, would rather further his training at the London hospital where he has found a place. However, shortly before his departure, he happens to witness atrocities committed by the ferocious Black and Tans and finally decides to join the resistance group led by Teddy. The two brothers fight side by side until a truce is signed. But peace is short-lived and when one faction of the freedom-fighters accepts a treaty with the British that is regarded as unfair by the other faction, a civil war ensues, pitting Irishmen against Irishmen, brothers against brothers, Teddy against Damien... (2006)

http://critical-mass.org Bring: bike, helmet, Headlamp, costume.
I sure would like to see the ride group together and remain a mass,
thereby minimizing impact on traffic and pissing off fewer motorists.
I would like them to block cross traffic JUST at the intersection ahead of the mass;
NOT 3 intersections ahead.
We could make room for cars to make right turns at corked intersections.
I think we should be visible and fun, and not upset or inconvenience people.

Important Anti-War Protests: This Wednesday AND October 27!
San Francisco: a massive die-in that is being planned now, and a post-march interactive “convergence” in Dolores Park.
On October 27 in 11 major U.S. cities, anti-war demonstrations will take to the streets 
demanding: End The War/Bring the Troops Home NOW!
In Northern California, a large and broad anti-war coalition has joined forces so that together, organizations, unions, congregations, and many diverse communities can mobilize a large and powerful demonstration and rally. Two new events will be part of this October 27th in San Francisco: a massive die-in that is being planned now, and a post-march interactive “convergence” in Dolores Park.

End the War Now – Protest
SF Civic Center
11 Massive Demonstrations for Peace 
Boston, Chicago, Jonesborough, Tenn., Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York City, Orlando, Philadelphia, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, and Seattle
The U.S. occupation of Iraq has led to 4000 American deaths and roughly 30,000 injuries. Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis have died and millions are homeless. Spending on the war thus far has been $457,984,243,792.
While most Americans oppose the war, there is no end in sight.
If we want the destruction and waste to stop, we have to take to the streets in protest in large numbers. This is the only way our elected officials will realize that their perpetuation of the war will end their political careers.
For this reason, a wide array of groups have come together to organize a series of major demonstrations this fall. One of these actions will be a protest and march in San Francisco on Saturday, October 27th. We'll start at the Civic Center at 11am and later march to Dolores Park. 
Join us, tell your friends to join us, volunteer as an organizer and donate to our effort to show Bush, Cheney, Pelosi and Feinstein that northern California is fed up with the war and won't tolerate any more excuses. No more surges, no more study groups: BRING THE TROOPS HOME NOW!

National Mobilization to End the War in Iraq, Saturday, October 27, 2007, 11 am Civic Center, San Francisco,

Please contact Carol-cbrouillet@igc.org to commit to helping at either table or in the contingent. We also need folks to help put together and pass out signs.

OCT 27 -- A “DIE-IN”
there WILL BE an art/photo/lie-down-amongst-strangers opportunity
that day. A.N.S.W.E.R. is organizing a mass ‘die-in’ as the march leaves
the Civic Center and heads west on Market Street. On the incline between
Valencia and Duboce streets, marchers will lie down across Market Street by
the thousands. If you’re there, you can probably spot yourself in the news
that night or the next day.

People everywhere want the war to end, but Washington has failed to take decisive action. With each passing month, nearly 100 service-people and countless more Iraqis are killed, some 12 billion of our tax dollars are spent, and the death and destruction continue. Our communities - from New Orleans to Minneapolis - are neglected and suffer the consequences. From Boston to San Francisco, from New York to New Orleans, on October 27th the people will speak: We want this war to end, and we want it to end now!

Taoist Erotic Massage for Men Tue Oct 30 7-9:30pm 
Location: The Center for Sex and Culture @ 1519 Mission Street Suite #1 (between 11th Street and South Van Ness) 
Cost: $25-$40 per individual (sliding scale). 
CSC now accepts Visa, MasterCard, and Discover, as well as personal checks. 
RSVP: Space is limited!
Email destin at EroticRockstar.com to reserve your space.
Experience the power of sacred sexuality in this hands-on, clothes-off workshop.
This 2.5 hour workshop will focus on the male as receiver. Men must attend with a partner. This workshop welcomes givers of any sex.
We will practice a series of conscious breathwork techniques and Taoist erotic massage, which can lead to extended, full-body orgasm and an altered mind-state conducive to spiritual insights.
Honestly, if you're looking to get off, this isn't for you. This is a spiritual, erotic, non-ejaculatory practice that stimulates and spreads erotic energy throughout the body. It is very hot, but it isn't sex as you normally think of it.
After the introduction and demonstration, we will practice the breathwork, and you will be guided through a series of different genital massage strokes. Participants will then have an opportunity to give or receive a 40 minute massage with integrated breathwork and coaching.
There is no sexual interaction between the giver and receiver except for the massage itself, and all boundaries will be respected.

7:30 pm Tuesday, Oct. 3O SNEAK PEAK of King Corn UCBerkely
     Don’t miss one of the year’s most important and entertaining films! With all the talk surrounding Michael Pollan’s newly infamous The Omnivore’s Dilemma, this movie has come at the perfect time! It’s the smarter, hipper Super Size Me for a hopeful new age in which people have realized that our current state of agriculture is in big trouble.
     King Corn is a feature documentary about two friends, one acre of corn, and the subsidized crop that drives our fast-food nation. In King Corn, Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, best friends from college on the east coast, move to the heartland to learn where their food comes from. With the help of friendly neighbors, genetically modified seeds, nitrogen fertilizers, and powerful herbicides, they plant and grow a bumper crop of America’s most-productive, most subsidized grain on one acre of Iowa soil. But when they try to follow their pile of corn into the food system, what they find raises troubling questions about how we eat – and how we farm.

The procession will end in Garfield Park at the Festival of Altars 8:30 PM at 25/26th & Harrison/Treat.
This Park has 6 OLD Sequoiahs that are planted in two sets of 3. So it looks like 2 trees. 
Also has more trees  better spaced on borders of park.
WHAT A WASTE! I am so upset that people hear Redwoods like company, so they plant them six feet apart. What a waste!
Please plant Redwoods 20 or 30 feet apart. These trees become very large.

Taoist Erotic Massage for Women (Co-facilitated with Ms. Amy Scott) Tue Nov 6 7-9:30pm 
Location: The Center for Sex and Culture @ 1519 Mission Street Suite #1 (between 11th Street and South Van Ness) 
Cost: $25-$40 per individual (sliding scale). 
CSC now accepts Visa, MasterCard, and Discover, as well as personal checks. 
RSVP: Space is limited! 
Email destin at EroticRockstar.com to reserve your space.
Experience the power of sacred sexuality in this hands-on, clothes-off workshop.
This 2.5 hour workshop will focus on the female as receiver. Women must attend with a partner. This workshop welcomes givers of any sex.
We will practice a series of conscious breathwork techniques and Taoist Erotic Massage, which can lead to extended, full-body orgasm and an altered mind-state conducive to spiritual insights.
Honestly, if you're looking to get off, this isn't for you. This is a spiritual, erotic practice that stimulates and spreads erotic energy throughout the body. It is very hot, but it isn't sex as you normally think of it.
After the introduction and demonstration, we will practice the breathwork, and you will be guided through a series of different genital massage strokes. Participants will then have an opportunity to give or receive a 40 minute massage with integrated breathwork and coaching.
There is no sexual interaction between the giver and receiver except for the massage itself, and all boundaries will be respected.

Eugene Debs, Josef Stalin, Melians

"They have always taught and trained you to believe it to be your patriotic duty to go to war and to have yourselves slaughtered at their command. But in all the history of the world you, the people, have never had a voice in declaring war, and strange as it certainly appears, no war by any nation in any age has ever been declared by the people."
-- Eugene Debs
Socialist candidate for president, June 16, 1918
The speech led to Debs's being stripped of his citizenship and sent to jail for 10 years.

But how much nobler it would be
if men died for ideas that were true."

"The voice of protest, of warning, of appeal is never more needed than
when the clamor of fife and drum, echoed by the press and too often by
the pulpit, is bidding all men fall in and keep step and obey in silence
the tyrannous word of command. Then, more than ever, it is the duty of
the good citizen not to be silent."

Harbin Hot Springs, Oct 11, Unconditional Dance AND JILIAN LoVE's Bday bash http://harbin.org
You'll move to the polyrhythmic, expertly mixed flow of sounds from downtempo to uptempo -- a huge cross-genre mix of deep grooves, funky beats and cutting edge remixes, with a spicy global imprint. Soak in deep waves of bass, as ultra clean sound floats you into your bliss. A meticulously tuned surround-sound system, subtle lighting effects, and special guest DJs create the soundtrack for an ecstatic community gathering.
There is no cover charge for Harbin guests. But Thursday night Unconditional Dance -- like a night blooming flower -- is short and sweet. It begins at 8:00 and winds down by 10:00 to 10:30 pm. So arrive early, dance your heart out, and then retreat to the sauna to cool off afterward.

6.30 pm Thursday, Oct. 11 Our Daily Bread + We Feed the World
Screening at the Hillside Club 2286 Cedar Street in Berkeley
     Welcome to the world of industrial food production and high-tech farming! To the rhythm of conveyor belts and immense machines, the film looks without commenting into the places where food is produced in Europe: monumental spaces, surreal landscapes and bizarre sounds – a cool, industrial environment which leaves little space for individualism. People, animals, crops and machines play a supporting role in the logistics of this system which provides our society’s standard of living. 
     Our Daily Bread is a wide-screen tableau of a feast which isn’t always easy to digest – and in which we all take part. A pure, meticulous and high-end film experience that enables the audience to form their own ideas.
     We Feed the World is a film about food and globalization, fishermen and farmers, long-distance lorry drivers and high-powered corporate executives, the flow of goods and cash flow–a film about scarcity amid plenty. With its unforgettable images, the film provides insight into the production of our food and answers the question of what world hunger has to do with us.
With San Fransico area breadbakers: Steve Sullivan (founder Acme Breads); Julie Cummins (CUESA); Phoenix Pastaficio; and Eduardo Morell (Morell’s bread)

October 11: Juvies 
This documentary explores the juvenile criminal-justice system, and the increasingly controversial practice of sending youth offenders through the adult system. Focusing on a group of twelve young offenders chosen randomly to participate in a video-production workshop at Eastlake Central Juvenile Hall in Los Angeles (where they await trials as adults), the film compares their crimes and sentences, explores their feelings about the experience of juvenile hall vs. adult prison, and examines the media's role in affecting public 
opinion about youth offenders and how they should be handled. (2004)
Juvies will start at 9:30

Eye Gazing Party - West Coast Debut Tuesday, October 16, 7:00 PM
The Tantric Temple (Potrero Hill, SF)
For single women and men in their 20s and 30s  $10
http://www.eyegazingparties.com
"New York's hottest dating trend" --Elle Magazine
Michael Ellsberg and Destin Gerek invite you to the West Coast debut 
of Eye Gazing Parties. These parties have been happening all over the
world, and now they are coming to San Francisco!
The eyes are the window into the soul, so it's a lot easier to have a mesmerizing conversation with someone new after you've spent two minutes looking into his or her eyes. That is the simple idea behind Eye Gazing Parties. Banal chit-chat about employment status, the location of your apartment, or where you're from is not a great way 
to spark a captivating connection with an alluring new person. Eye contact is.
Here's how it works: An even number of singles meet in an attractive space over drinks and world beats. After a fun mini-lesson in the art of eye contact, the group splits into pairs, and each pair spends two minutes looking into each other's eyes, no talking, with inviting beats in the background. The pairs switch up every two minutes, for a total of around half an hour. Then there is a party afterwards, with drinks flowing and luscious beats vibing. The eye gazing has an electrifying effect on the party; simply put, two minutes of eye contact is the Cadillac of ice-breakers. Come try out the exciting new way to meet single souls! 
Eye Gazing Parties were founded by Michael Ellsberg in NYC in 2005, and have been covered by the New York Times, CNN, Good Morning America, and major media around the world. People who attend them report having profound experiences with many new and exciting people at each event. 
The party is co-hosted by Destin Gerek ( http://www.EroticRockstar.com )
 and is held in the stunning Tantric Temple ( http://www.tantrictemple.org ), 
founded and run by the incomparable Bast ( http://www.undercoverpriestess.com ), who will also be there. 
If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Michael at press2007@eyegazingparties.com (no need to follow the invite instructions on the Eye Gazing Parties website). He will send you the address. Please only RSVP if you are set on attending, as the success of these parties depends on maintaining an even balance between men and women, and cancellations or no-shows throw this balance off. 
Feel free to invite your friends--have them RSVP directly to Michael (press2007@eyegazingparties.com)
and have them mention your name. Thank you! Michael and Destin

6.30 pm Tuesday, Oct. 18 Fed Up, Fowl + Pollen Nation + Islands at Risk (four short films)  UCBerkely
     Using hilarious and disturbing archival footage and featuring interviews with farmers, scientists, government officials, and activists Fed Up! presents an entertaining and informative overview of our current food production system from the Green Revolution to the Biotech Revolution and what we can do about it. Fed Up! explores the unintentional effects of pesticides, the resistance of biotechnology companies to food labeling, and the links between government officials and major biotechnology and chemical companies.
     Fowl is a short documentary examining how chicken has become central to the revolution in how we produce our food. The film looks at how society has become disconnected from what we eat and how our food system has become dependent on fossil fuels.
     Pollen Nation follows the journey of third generation beekeeper Jeff Anderson from the honey harvest on the High Plains to the warm winter-feeding grounds of California. It also explores the history of human interaction with bees, from ancient Egyptian beekeepers to professional bee brokers in the 21st century.

October 18: Crónicas (Part of our monthly Movies en Español series)
Oscillating between furor and languor, rage and repose, Crónicas mixes ethnography with media critique, questioning the nature of truth in reportage, the media's power to effect (and affect) that truth, and the queasy complicity and mutual fascination between interviewer and subject. Inspired by a gruesome real-life trio of South American serial killers (among them Luis Alfredo Garavito, who shocked Colombia with the murders of about 140 children), Crónicas follows Miami tabloid TV correspondent Manolo Bonilla (John Leguizamo) and his crew (Leonor Watling and José Mar Yazpik) as they report on one such killer in Babahoyo, Ecuador, failing Journalistic Ethics 101 in the process. The film is aided a strong sense of place; sorrow's descent on Babahoyo feels as perpetual and all-consuming as the torrents of rain that drench the region, and the town itself—much of it suspended over water on ramshackle bamboo bridges—threatens to collapse from its own psychological detritus.

Lights Out San Francisco is a grassroots community group organizing a citywide energy savings event on Saturday, October 20, 2007, from 8-9 p.m. On this night, we invite the entire city of San Francisco, including schools, businesses, city and federal government agencies, churches, and individuals to turn off all non-essential lighting to save energy. The Bay Bridge, Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and much of downtown will be turning off their lights.
Lights Out San Francisco http://www.lightsoutsf.org is taking the message of energy conservation to the streets!
     Please join us for a bus tour of the city this Sunday, October 14th. Lights Out San Francisco (LOSF) Steering Committee member Jens-Peter Jungclaussen
http://www.dasfrachtgut.com has graciously offered not one, but BOTH of his veggie oil fueled buses for us to use this Sunday. Our plan is to transport friends and volunteers around San Francisco, stopping at different neighborhoods to pass out energy-efficient CFLs and information about LOSF.
     We want to extend a very special invitation to our friends at the Friends of the Urban Forrest to join us on Sunday. Please be sure to RSVP to Brendan at Brendan@lightsoutsf.org, as space is limited! All the details are below. Thanks!
     Who: Peter, his buses, volunteers, and you!
     What: Passing out CFLs and info, asking businesses for permission to put up LOSF posters in their windows. There will be music and water provided, but please feel free to bring food and libations. If you choose to drink, we trust you will do so responsibly, as you will be representing LOSF.
     When: Sunday, October 14th. 10:30am until we feel like we're done. You may stay as long as you like, but there will be occasional drop offs at public transportation stations if you'd like to leave before we stop.
     Where: Meet at the LOSF office at 2548 Mission St. (between 21st & 22nd), where there will be a brief orientation.
     Any questions? Call the LOSF office at (415) 643-5673

We are also distributing 110,000 free energy-efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) throughout the city. Look for our booths at events (www.lightsoutsf.org/events.html) or stop by our office (2548 Mission, next to Medjool) to get your free energy saving lightbulb. Our goal is to raise awareness and educate San Franciscans about the small changes they can make to fight climate change.

We thank the Friends of the Urban Forest associates for joining us in this effort. Visit here to pledge to turn off your lights from 8-9pm on October 20, and join the City of San Francisco in conserving energy and protecting our environment.

Volunteer to get the word out about this important energy initiative in your community! Email volunteer@lightsoutsf.org. Volunteer now!

6.30 pm Wednesday, Oct. 24 The Power of Community + Crude Awakening  UCBerkely
     Crude Awakening tells the story of how our civilization’s addiction to oil puts it on a collision course with geology. Shot on location at oil fields in Azerbaijan, Venezuela, the Middle East and Texas, the film visits with the world’s top experts and comes to a startling, but logical conclusion – our industrial society, built on cheap and readily available oil, must be completely re-imagined and overhauled.
     With Panelists: Monica Moore (Pesticide Action Network, North America) and Miguel Altieri (Prof. of AgroEcology, UC Berkeley) Willow Rosenthal (City Slickers Farms) Antonio Roman-Alcala (Allemany Farm)
Discussion theme: What will Agriculture look like post-peak oil?

October 25: The Wind That Shakes the Barley     
Ireland, 1920. Damien and Teddy are brothers. But while the latter is already the leader of a guerrilla squad fighting for the independence of his motherland, Damien, a medical graduate of University College, would rather further his training at the London hospital where he has found a place. However, shortly before his departure, he happens to witness atrocities committed by the ferocious Black and Tans and finally decides to join the resistance group led by Teddy. The two brothers fight side by side until a truce is signed. But peace is short-lived and when one faction of the freedom-fighters accepts a treaty with the British that is regarded as unfair by the other faction, a civil war ensues, pitting Irishmen against Irishmen, brothers against brothers, Teddy against Damien...

I sure would like to see the ride group together and remain a mass,
thereby minimizing impact on traffic and pissing off fewer motorists.
I would like them to block cross traffic JUST at the intersection ahead of the mass;
NOT 3 intersections ahead.
We could make room for cars to make right turns at corked intersections.
I think we should be visible and fun, and not upset or inconvenience people.

Mark your calendars. Jan L. showed this movie to a number of us back in June. It is excellent!

7:30 pm Tuesday, Oct. 3O SNEAK PEAK of King Corn UCBerkely
     Don’t miss one of the year’s most important and entertaining films! With all the talk surrounding Michael Pollan’s newly infamous The Omnivore’s Dilemma, this movie has come at the perfect time! It’s the smarter, hipper Super Size Me for a hopeful new age in which people have realized that our current state of agriculture is in big trouble.
     King Corn is a feature documentary about two friends, one acre of corn, and the subsidized crop that drives our fast-food nation. In King Corn, Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, best friends from college on the east coast, move to the heartland to learn where their food comes from. With the help of friendly neighbors, genetically modified seeds, nitrogen fertilizers, and powerful herbicides, they plant and grow a bumper crop of America’s most-productive, most subsidized grain on one acre of Iowa soil. But when they try to follow their pile of corn into the food system, what they find raises troubling questions about how we eat – and how we farm.
With panelists: Michael Pollan (author, The Omnivore’s Dilemma, The Botany of Desire), Aaron Woolf (film maker), Ian Cheney +Curtis Ellis (film stars).
Discussion theme: Corn, farm subsidies, rural communities and the Food Bill.
Screening at the Hillside Club 2286 Cedar Street in Berkeley. This film will open at the Shattuck theater on November 2nd.

Eugene Debs, Josef Stalin, Melians

"They have always taught and trained you to believe it to be your patriotic duty to go to war and to have yourselves slaughtered at their command. But in all the history of the world you, the people, have never had a voice in declaring war, and strange as it certainly appears, no war by any nation in any age has ever been declared by the people."
-- Eugene Debs
Socialist candidate for president, June 16, 1918
The speech led to Debs's being stripped of his citizenship and sent to jail for 10 years.

"The voice of protest, of warning, of appeal is never more needed than
when the clamor of fife and drum, echoed by the press and too often by

the tyrannous word of command. Then, more than ever, it is the duty of
the good citizen not to be silent."

You'll move to the polyrhythmic, expertly mixed flow of sounds from downtempo to uptempo -- a huge cross-genre mix of deep grooves, funky beats and cutting edge remixes, with a spicy global imprint. Soak in deep waves of bass, as ultra clean sound floats you into your bliss. A meticulously tuned surround-sound system, subtle lighting effects, and special guest DJs create the soundtrack for an ecstatic community gathering.
There is no cover charge for Harbin guests. But Thursday night Unconditional Dance -- like a night blooming flower -- is short and sweet. It begins at 8:00 and winds down by 10:00 to 10:30 pm. So arrive early, dance your heart out, and then retreat to the sauna to cool off afterward.

6.30 pm Thursday, Oct. 11 Our Daily Bread + We Feed the World
Screening at the Hillside Club 2286 Cedar Street in Berkeley
     Welcome to the world of industrial food production and high-tech farming! To the rhythm of conveyor belts and immense machines, the film looks without commenting into the places where food is produced in Europe: monumental spaces, surreal landscapes and bizarre sounds – a cool, industrial environment which leaves little space for individualism. People, animals, crops and machines play a supporting role in the logistics of this system which provides our society’s standard of living. 
     Our Daily Bread is a wide-screen tableau of a feast which isn’t always easy to digest – and in which we all take part. A pure, meticulous and high-end film experience that enables the audience to form their own ideas.
     We Feed the World is a film about food and globalization, fishermen and farmers, long-distance lorry drivers and high-powered corporate executives, the flow of goods and cash flow–a film about scarcity amid plenty. With its unforgettable images, the film provides insight into the production of our food and answers the question of what world hunger has to do with us.

October 11: Juvies 
This documentary explores the juvenile criminal-justice system, and the increasingly controversial practice of sending youth offenders through the adult system. Focusing on a group of twelve young offenders chosen randomly to participate in a video-production workshop at Eastlake Central Juvenile Hall in Los Angeles (where they await trials as adults), the film compares their crimes and sentences, explores their feelings about the experience of juvenile hall vs. adult prison, and examines the media's role in affecting public 
opinion about youth offenders and how they should be handled. (2004)

Eye Gazing Party - West Coast Debut Tuesday, October 16, 7:00 PM
The Tantric Temple (Potrero Hill, SF)
For single women and men in their 20s and 30s  $10
http://www.eyegazingparties.com
"New York's hottest dating trend" --Elle Magazine
Michael Ellsberg and Destin Gerek invite you to the West Coast debut 
of Eye Gazing Parties. These parties have been happening all over the
world, and now they are coming to San Francisco!
The eyes are the window into the soul, so it's a lot easier to have a mesmerizing conversation with someone new after you've spent two minutes looking into his or her eyes. That is the simple idea behind Eye Gazing Parties. Banal chit-chat about employment status, the location of your apartment, or where you're from is not a great way 
to spark a captivating connection with an alluring new person. Eye contact is.
Here's how it works: An even number of singles meet in an attractive space over drinks and world beats. After a fun mini-lesson in the art of eye contact, the group splits into pairs, and each pair spends two minutes looking into each other's eyes, no talking, with inviting beats in the background. The pairs switch up every two minutes, for a total of around half an hour. Then there is a party afterwards, with drinks flowing and luscious beats vibing. The eye gazing has an electrifying effect on the party; simply put, two minutes of eye contact is the Cadillac of ice-breakers. Come try out the exciting new way to meet single souls! 
Eye Gazing Parties were founded by Michael Ellsberg in NYC in 2005, and have been covered by the New York Times, CNN, Good Morning America, and major media around the world. People who attend them report having profound experiences with many new and exciting people at each event. 
The party is co-hosted by Destin Gerek ( http://www.EroticRockstar.com )
 and is held in the stunning Tantric Temple ( http://www.tantrictemple.org ), 
founded and run by the incomparable Bast ( http://www.undercoverpriestess.com ), who will also be there. 
If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Michael at press2007@eyegazingparties.com (no need to follow the invite instructions on the Eye Gazing Parties website). He will send you the address. Please only RSVP if you are set on attending, as the success of these parties depends on maintaining an even balance between men and women, and cancellations or no-shows throw this balance off. 
Feel free to invite your friends--have them RSVP directly to Michael (press2007@eyegazingparties.com)
and have them mention your name. Thank you! Michael and Destin

6.30 pm Tuesday, Oct. 18 Fed Up, Fowl + Pollen Nation + Islands at Risk (four short films)  UCBerkely
     Using hilarious and disturbing archival footage and featuring interviews with farmers, scientists, government officials, and activists Fed Up! presents an entertaining and informative overview of our current food production system from the Green Revolution to the Biotech Revolution and what we can do about it. Fed Up! explores the unintentional effects of pesticides, the resistance of biotechnology companies to food labeling, and the links between government officials and major biotechnology and chemical companies.
     Fowl is a short documentary examining how chicken has become central to the revolution in how we produce our food. The film looks at how society has become disconnected from what we eat and how our food system has become dependent on fossil fuels.
     Pollen Nation follows the journey of third generation beekeeper Jeff Anderson from the honey harvest on the High Plains to the warm winter-feeding grounds of California. It also explores the history of human interaction with bees, from ancient Egyptian beekeepers to professional bee brokers in the 21st century.

October 18: Crónicas (Part of our monthly Movies en Español series)
Oscillating between furor and languor, rage and repose, Crónicas mixes ethnography with media critique, questioning the nature of truth in reportage, the media's power to effect (and affect) that truth, and the queasy complicity and mutual fascination between interviewer and subject. Inspired by a gruesome real-life trio of South American serial killers (among them Luis Alfredo Garavito, who shocked Colombia with the murders of about 140 children), Crónicas follows Miami tabloid TV correspondent Manolo Bonilla (John Leguizamo) and his crew (Leonor Watling and José Mar Yazpik) as they report on one such killer in Babahoyo, Ecuador, failing Journalistic Ethics 101 in the process. The film is aided a strong sense of place; sorrow's descent on Babahoyo feels as perpetual and all-consuming as the torrents of rain that drench the region, and the town itself—much of it suspended over water on ramshackle bamboo bridges—threatens to collapse from its own psychological detritus.

Lights Out San Francisco is a grassroots community group organizing a citywide energy savings event on Saturday, October 20, 2007, from 8-9 p.m. On this night, we invite the entire city of San Francisco, including schools, businesses, city and federal government agencies, churches, and individuals to turn off all non-essential lighting to save energy. The Bay Bridge, Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz and much of downtown will be turning off their lights.
Lights Out San Francisco http://www.lightsoutsf.org is taking the message of energy conservation to the streets!
     Please join us for a bus tour of the city this Sunday, October 14th. Lights Out San Francisco (LOSF) Steering Committee member Jens-Peter Jungclaussen
http://www.dasfrachtgut.com has graciously offered not one, but BOTH of his veggie oil fueled buses for us to use this Sunday. Our plan is to transport friends and volunteers around San Francisco, stopping at different neighborhoods to pass out energy-efficient CFLs and information about LOSF.
     We want to extend a very special invitation to our friends at the Friends of the Urban Forrest to join us on Sunday. Please be sure to RSVP to Brendan at Brendan@lightsoutsf.org, as space is limited! All the details are below. Thanks!
     Who: Peter, his buses, volunteers, and you!
     What: Passing out CFLs and info, asking businesses for permission to put up LOSF posters in their windows. There will be music and water provided, but please feel free to bring food and libations. If you choose to drink, we trust you will do so responsibly, as you will be representing LOSF.
     When: Sunday, October 14th. 10:30am until we feel like we're done. You may stay as long as you like, but there will be occasional drop offs at public transportation stations if you'd like to leave before we stop.
     Where: Meet at the LOSF office at 2548 Mission St. (between 21st & 22nd), where there will be a brief orientation.
     Any questions? Call the LOSF office at (415) 643-5673

We are also distributing 110,000 free energy-efficient compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) throughout the city. Look for our booths at events (www.lightsoutsf.org/events.html) or stop by our office (2548 Mission, next to Medjool) to get your free energy saving lightbulb. Our goal is to raise awareness and educate San Franciscans about the small changes they can make to fight climate change.

We thank the Friends of the Urban Forest associates for joining us in this effort. Visit here to pledge to turn off your lights from 8-9pm on October 20, and join the City of San Francisco in conserving energy and protecting our environment.

Volunteer to get the word out about this important energy initiative in your community! Email volunteer@lightsoutsf.org. Volunteer now!

6.30 pm Wednesday, Oct. 24 The Power of Community + Crude Awakening  UCBerkely
     Crude Awakening tells the story of how our civilization’s addiction to oil puts it on a collision course with geology. Shot on location at oil fields in Azerbaijan, Venezuela, the Middle East and Texas, the film visits with the world’s top experts and comes to a startling, but logical conclusion – our industrial society, built on cheap and readily available oil, must be completely re-imagined and overhauled.
     With Panelists: Monica Moore (Pesticide Action Network, North America) and Miguel Altieri (Prof. of AgroEcology, UC Berkeley) Willow Rosenthal (City Slickers Farms) Antonio Roman-Alcala (Allemany Farm)
Discussion theme: What will Agriculture look like post-peak oil?

October 25: The Wind That Shakes the Barley     
Ireland, 1920. Damien and Teddy are brothers. But while the latter is already the leader of a guerrilla squad fighting for the independence of his motherland, Damien, a medical graduate of University College, would rather further his training at the London hospital where he has found a place. However, shortly before his departure, he happens to witness atrocities committed by the ferocious Black and Tans and finally decides to join the resistance group led by Teddy. The two brothers fight side by side until a truce is signed. But peace is short-lived and when one faction of the freedom-fighters accepts a treaty with the British that is regarded as unfair by the other faction, a civil war ensues, pitting Irishmen against Irishmen, brothers against brothers, Teddy against Damien...

I sure would like to see the ride group together and remain a mass,
thereby minimizing impact on traffic and pissing off fewer motorists.
I would like them to block cross traffic JUST at the intersection ahead of the mass;
NOT 3 intersections ahead.
We could make room for cars to make right turns at corked intersections.
I think we should be visible and fun, and not upset or inconvenience people.

Mark your calendars. Jan L. showed this movie to a number of us back in June. It is excellent!

7:30 pm Tuesday, Oct. 3O SNEAK PEAK of King Corn UCBerkely
     Don’t miss one of the year’s most important and entertaining films! With all the talk surrounding Michael Pollan’s newly infamous The Omnivore’s Dilemma, this movie has come at the perfect time! It’s the smarter, hipper Super Size Me for a hopeful new age in which people have realized that our current state of agriculture is in big trouble.
     King Corn is a feature documentary about two friends, one acre of corn, and the subsidized crop that drives our fast-food nation. In King Corn, Ian Cheney and Curt Ellis, best friends from college on the east coast, move to the heartland to learn where their food comes from. With the help of friendly neighbors, genetically modified seeds, nitrogen fertilizers, and powerful herbicides, they plant and grow a bumper crop of America’s most-productive, most subsidized grain on one acre of Iowa soil. But when they try to follow their pile of corn into the food system, what they find raises troubling questions about how we eat – and how we farm.
With panelists: Michael Pollan (author, The Omnivore’s Dilemma, The Botany of Desire), Aaron Woolf (film maker), Ian Cheney +Curtis Ellis (film stars).
Discussion theme: Corn, farm subsidies, rural communities and the Food Bill.
Screening at the Hillside Club 2286 Cedar Street in Berkeley. This film will open at the Shattuck theater on November 2nd.

Please foster Kittens for you local SPCA.
Help raise kittens until they are 8 weeks old or 2 lbs and can be put up for adoption.
It is important that they have humans for socialization and play!   (lucky you)
http://www.sfspca.org/foster/index.shtml
this is the sweetest and most fun way to bring extra love into your life,
and into the kittens' lives. This program is FREE:
You attend their kitten foster program so you know how...
And then when they have a litter of kittens for you,
they send you home with kittens and all the cat food you need.

by frequent recurrence to fundamental principles."

Half his present repute for the freedom to think

Will risk t' other half for the freedom to speak."
