  • The City That Was: The Criminal Act of Feeding the Hungry

    P Segal - Bohemian Archivist

       In The City That Was, Bohemian Archivist P Segal tells a weekly story of what you all missed: the days when artists, writers, musicians, and unemployed visionaries were playing hard in the city’s streets and paying the rent working part time. Thanksgiving season, the time when America prepares to gorge itself on variations of the usual turkey dinner, argue with relatives, and watch sports on TV: hardly anyone mentions being thankful about anything. I would like to give thanks, at this appropriate moment, to people who have risked arrest to make sure that their poor fellow…

  • Tips on Having a Semi-Skinny Thanksgiving

    Ashley Lauren - Living Beautifully on a Budget
    26 Nov 2014 | 2:34 pm
    Thanksgiving is the opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends, while also indulging in some bomb food. It’s easy to over indulge though, which can send you on a downward spiral until after the new year, once all the food focus festivities finally begin to calm down. As you’ll learn in this article, a little prep can lead to less regret. Get Your Fitness On Do something active in the morning to get that metabolism going! No time for the regular gym session (or don’t have concept of regular gym session)? Here are some other options: a quick 15 minute jog or brisk…
  • How to Survive Your Family During the Holidays

    Jay H - Bawdy Broadcaster
    25 Nov 2014 | 3:29 pm
    It’s here. The holiday season. Personally, I hate the Christmas season. Aside from SantaCon, I could do without the time between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve. I’m a Grinch and my heart isn’t going to grow 10 times too big and Cindy Lou Who can go suck a big one. Pure ire fills me on November 1st each year when I walk into a Peet’s or Starbucks and hear the whiny spewing of an Amy Grant holiday track from 1994. Can’t you commercial bastards wait until at least Thanksgiving is over? Shit, guys. Rein it in a bit. Yeah, right. It will never happen. In a few years we will…
  • Rent Control Bids Farewell to the Way Things Were, Rock-Opera Style

    Rachel Balik - Low-Brow Luminary
    25 Nov 2014 | 10:21 am
    “You had a life that you loved for so long. You had a life that loved and now it’s gone.” So ends “Gone Songs,” the first track on Rent Control, a solo, concept album by singer, guitarist, sound engineer and long-time San Francisco resident, J. Kick. That startling sense of loss is shared by many in the city these days, but it takes on a less anguished and more dreamy, philosophical quality in Kick’s interpretation. The album was inspired by his move from the Mission to Oakland, and is a reflection of both his time in SF and the way the city has changed. Some of the songs are…
  • Take a Look inside New York City’s Protest for Mike Brown

    Enrique Grijalva - Mr. Minimum Wage
    25 Nov 2014 | 9:30 am
    As I ended my slave labor shift a strategic ruckus, in unison, caught my attention. I came to the corner of 14th Street and 6th Avenue where countless determined and angry faces sat atop young and old bodies, stomping through the streets of Manhattan. Signs which displayed disdain for the police graced the sea of protesters. The devastating verdict from the Mike Brown trial must have been declared, I thought. Darren Wilson, the inhumane and degenerate cum stain–who fell out of his mother’s toxic womb 28 years ago–was cleared of any criminal and legal wrongdoing by a grand jury…

  • Guerrillas In The Midst, by J.S.H. – Part 2

    Hugh James Latimer
    28 Nov 2014 | 8:01 am
    Some of the principles of guerrilla tactics are continued: Abstract Attack This is the art of attacking under conditions that seem unfavorable in the enemy’s eyes. Poor weather and/or terrain can be an advantage for the guerrilla warrior. Also, attacking when the opposing force is sleeping, worn down, or resupplying is advantageous. Sabotaging enemy soldiers’ resources is a very effective way to stun and demoralize troops. Another “abstract attack” is to convince weaker enemy soldiers that they are safer or better off fighting along side you rather than against you.
  • Letter: Open Carry in the Wilderness Challenge in Canadian Law

    Hugh James Latimer

    Dear HJL and JWR, Could you please spread the following information? There has recently been some interest in bringing forward a legal challenge on the right to Open Carry of sidearms (handguns) in wilderness environments in Canada. Specifically, it questions the prohibition on carrying handguns and advocates Open Carry to meet threats from dangerous animals on (public) Crown Land and private rural land. It is not a challenge for concealed carry or open carry in urban environments, but it may be a good first step. As you know, the laws on handguns in Canada are not based on any form of logic,…
