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.

OK u skvarz!
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.

ok, just chek this out cuz it bugz me
I am really really sick of religion being used in this way. If there are any real Christians left out there, please let everyone know this govno bugz you too!
Poetry Slam and the Editor's Birthday
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.

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.
ok back up again!
