5:29pm: I just sold the biggest sponsorship i've ever sold to one of my festivals to Current.tv!

And about a week ago I had pretty much decided not to bother with going after sponsors anymore and just cut th budget on everything down to absolute basics.

And then this. Needless to say, pretty psyched!

I've never watched Current, but of course, now i love them. Someone over there knew daddy needed a new pair of shoes...

5:48pm: NIMBY had a small fire, and the FD was called, and there are apparently tons of violations, and the place has been padlocked and red flagged and it doesn't look good. No one was hurt. Only one tenant lost their container. But rumor has it the place is done for.

McCain/Palin: Putting Japan First
by Kagro X
Wed Sep 10, 2008 at 11:00:57 AM PDT

"Drill, baby, drill!" "Sell out to the Japanese, baby, sell out to the Japanese!"

The Republicans have just spent a month going completely frothy over the need to drill for oil and natural gas in every backyard in America, claiming it'll lower gasoline prices at the pump.

But did you know that in the meantime, they've been preparing to secret all that natural gas out of the country and sell it to the Japanese?
Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) did:

September 2, 2008

The Honorable Samuel W. Bodman
U.S. Department of Energy
1000 Independence Avenue, SW
Washington, DC 20585

Dear Secretary Bodman,

On June 3, 2008 and July 30, 2008 respectively, your Department issued and affirmed an order pursuant to Section 3 of the Natural Gas Act that will allow two major integrated oil companies – ConocoPhillips and Marathon Oil – to export 98.1 billion cubic feet of Alaskan natural gas to Japan and other Pacific Rim countries. This order, which will allow the export of as much natural gas as is used by 1.4 million American families in a year, comes at a time when the President had demanded that the moratoria on oil and gas drilling along our environmentally-sensitive coastal areas be lifted and Americans are being warned that their winter heating bills are going to be dramatically higher. The Administration is trying to have it both ways – arguing that we need to drill everywhere because we don’t have adequate energy supplies, while finding that we have so much energy that big oil companies can export it overseas and keep prices here at home higher than they would otherwise be.

Well, well, well. Energy prices going through the roof in the U.S., supposedly because we're not drilling enough, and the Republicans are selling what we are drilling out the back door! Wish I could say this was a surprise.

And sakes alive! Who'd have guessed it'd be Slick Sarah Palin and the Alaskans selling it off? We're all paying through the nose for our energy needs down here, Republicans are wetting themselves over the supposed need for more drilling, and Slick Sarah and her cronies are hawking their America's wares to overseas bidders. Which, not coincidentally, has the effect of hiking the prices Reg'lar Hockey MomsTM pay to, say, heat the seats in their new boondoggle hockey rinks, and, it seems, boosting the dividend checks paid directly to... Alaskan families like Sarah Palin's, who received $3200 per head this year. Wow! I haven't seen a scam this blatant since yesterday, when we found out Slick Sarah was charging Alaska taxpayers $60 a day to sleep in and munch those mooseburgers in her own kitchen.

So they're pumping up prices by selling off the gas they told you was ours to the Japanese, and then paying themselves bonuses when they do! (Plus extra for cheating you from home!)

Enough with the skimming already, you jerks!

What's the difference between a Hockey MomTM and Enron?

Yeah, it turns out that's lipstick too.

30th June 2008

10:14am: Guanajuato
Sitting in the lobby of La Casa Azul in Guanajuato.
We arrived yesterday morning and things have been great. We kinda cant bleive June is ending and we are actually in Mexico and a bunch of friends and family are joining us here in a couple of days!

We both actually managed to sleep a couple hours on the flight down. I think the exhaustion of festival/closing escrow/moving/planning a wedding/planning a wedding In Another Country/coordinating all this transpotation and such with our guests/etc/etc took its toll.

But we spent the day wandering around yesterday, did some bar scouting in preperation for our outing here on thursday with friends in tow, and managed to turn the Bar Fly (our favorite spot from last time we were here) into a rockabilly dance party for like a good hour. We walk in and their playing Operation Ivy, good sign! The dj/barback moves into Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and other swing stuff (bartender guy playing air trumpet between making drinks) i ask if he has any rockabilly. He proceeds to spin a ton of spanish rockabilly and US surf tunes and people around the bar are all dancin around. DJ guy takes off his shirt, gets on the bar, holds his nose and dives. Quite a trip. Place is a blast. I remember it as playing reggae all the time last time we were here (three years ago).

Walking around we saw places that changed (our hostel from before is no more, but theres a cool, cavernlike bar thats new right down from Bar Fly) and just basically drank a bunch of Indio beer and tequila.

Yesterday was more wander and some errands. Today w move to San Miguel and look for a decently stocked liquor store to start building the bar at the Hacienda for our when our guests start to arrive on weds.

We almost even have a ceremony figured out for Saturday. I think it will be all of 10 minutes...The thing for us is the company of our friends for the weekend. I think its gonna be a good week!

24th June 2008

12:36am: Thanks to the kindness and so much help from ms sara and mr richard (and ms sara's mom's truck) we have MOVED into our new place in West O!
so frickin great.
love it love it.
oh, and then i go and take the trash out and this guy sticks his head out his door: "Did you hear that, the gunshots? i heard bullets whizing right by my window!" the ex-cop guy next door sticks his head out "yeah, that was live rounds, ive called 911"

yippee! good times! west o! alrighty then!

on the plus side, out place is well back from the road, behind the parking area, and what not. not worried. but hey. talk about welcome to oakland.

and im not even going to go into the excitement/drama/tragedy that is/was my van this weekend............
