GAAAH gluposti!

Those of you who do not live in our gulag do not realize how the Soviet of Washington works. It's like this, the Wet side decides for the East Side what is going to happen. (Since the East side is very right wing except for me, that means a lot of pissed off people)
Anyway the proposal is to split the Soviet of Washington at the ridge of the Cascades. It is not expected to pass the legislature, but it's glupsoti even to be wasting time about it. The only happy people will be the right wingers and the guys who will make a killing off of making new flags if this did go through.
I think the right wingers need to feel the suffering they impose on me by their total domination of all local things by having to suffer the same at the state level. Why can't they look at this as a chance to develope their characters?
They tell me that if I bitch about being poor, that it is good for my character.

damn headache again

I have to read 'Medical Insurance Made Easy' That is a BIG LIE, no one can make the American Medical Insurance system even SEEM easy, let alone BE easy! Better we should nationalize health care instead of forceing everyone to privatize it all. Sorry this sort of thing makes me all ranty and angry. Plus now I would like to go to the hospital and have a CAT scan or something for this stupid headache. It's changed wheich side of my head to go to several times now. I popped some pills for it but they aren't working yet. Well that is that I guess.

OK u skvarz!

I am still tired from the latest tests. I hardly know which end is up anymore. The Billing test gave me a headache. I have been watching Carnivale, it's wierd, makes Twin Peaks and X Files seem totally like a normal day in the neighborhood. The music is fantastic. The Bulgarian Women's Choir has been used a lot.
Speaking of fantastic music, there is this outrageous Algerian rendition of the Clash's 'Rock the Casbah' I gotta have it, because it's like the wildest thing ever, like Punk meets Rai for a total f***fest, and it's great! I was like sort of singing along and wished I had it to play loud when the neighbors play music that is too loud.
My usual revenge is Macedonian bagpipes. Seriously that or Turbofolk or the louder varieties of sevdelinki. Taty works in a pinch.
Anyway it's been face freezing cold in the mornings but nice later in the day. I made the mistake of using the wrong bag to carry my stuff today. I am paying for that mistake. I also should have eaten something other than burritos. I don't know it's not nice. anyway , going to watch another episode of Carnivale. The dungeon dwelle r has been too sick to help me with my arithmetic.
That is not a good thing!I'm almost too brain dead for anything anyway.

Poetry Slam and the Editor's Birthday

Well the Poetry Slam was very well attended both in terms of audience numbera AND performers. Most read really good work. About three people were not ready for prime time in my opinion but got into the top ten.
I liked the poems of the people who won. The Winner was a Ms. Vanessa Alvisio of Toppenish gulag. She can rhym on the fly and that is really good if you can do it well, further she can in two languages, Spanish her first language and English. She is a very cute lady too, and I liked how real she was about her life!
runner up Wendy Warren read, behind the exterior of a mild mannered reporter lurks a WILDWOMAN! I had no idea her sex life was so interesting!
the other runner up, Mark Burns had some very clever work, and it was enjoyable.
I would have liked to at least be in the Top Ten, but know what? at least I like who won, and had a nice evening out.

A few people read very good stuff, Kim Roberts, Linda Brown,her poem about the socks was cool. and Randy Gottlieb read wonderful stuff, same goes for the always worth reading and hearing Keely Murphy.

The Black Box was mobbed! people were sitting on the floor.

Here are my suggestions for improvements of the experience....
1. Could the Judges picked at random please be given the rules in front of all of us?
2. They can then go to the room where they deliberate, and be given a time-limit.

I think these minor changes would be improvements to the event.
The other thing is a venue like the new Chartwells location would be nice since there are numerous comfy chairs. Perhaps this would make it possible to have coffee and snacks available. That last is just a thought. The event is growing which should please poetry lovers everywhere in our Gulag.

Perhaps more open reading situations such as other slams would be a good thing too. In easily accesable locations, would be a nice thing. There are a hell of of lot of good writers stranded in this gulag for one reason or another.

Vagina Monolouges

Tonight, I went to the film of the Vagina Monologues, which was the same film they showed on HBO. It was very good. Most of the audience was female, quite a few people from Ellensburg. One of the women interviewed by the author was Bosnian and was raped during the war. That particular section was hard when I saw the play, and it wasn't easier seeing it in the film. One brief clip showed the river that goes through Sarajevo. There is a particular day that they remember the people who died in a peace demonstration just before the war stsrted. People were throwing flowers into the river. They as well showed a brief shot of a typical small village in the middle of nowhere BiH. As the people there say 'Vukojebina' which means 'place where wolves f***' She showed picures of some of the women who had been in the rape camps. You could tell these women and girls experienced something evil just looking at their faces. The author felt the same kind of outrage I did at the time, and she actually went over there before the war was over and talked to some of these women and girls. This took a lot of guts then. She also did not depend entirely on herself to communicate the things she wrote, but relied a little on the film, and the pictures. She did it very well. This was a part of the film that I wish our local drama students had a chance to see before doing the show.

It was interesting to compare the film to our local production. Actually looking back the local production of the Vagina Monologues was very well cast and very well acted. The portion called 'Flood' was particularly well cast locally. The woman was like a few women I know who have worked in fruit warehouses. That is cool, because this person really did a good job of sounding like an older woman.
This was for me an excellent illustration of how a play takes shape, in the author's hands and then in other hands. Different ways of seeing the same idea.
'The Little Coochie-snorfer that Could' was actually better in the local production, there was a young Black girl who did it to perfection, there was nothing wrong with the film, just that I liked those two local things better.
