VT's @SenatorSanders actually has the cojones to stand up & #filibuster on the senate floor

the rules in the senate are confusing to say the least.
the days of mr. smith goes to washington are long gone.
current rules allow for minority senators to just threaten to filibuster a bill w/out actually standing up in front of the american people & speak her mind about her disagreement. a simple threat can railroad the passage of a bill and cause it to require a super-majority of 60 votes to pass.
every bill now has to pass w/a 60 vote majority.
whatever happened to a simple majority?!?!
in this waning 111th congress, the house of representatives passed an astounding 400+ bills thanks to the tireless work of Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
regardless of all those PASSED bills, the majority of them went on to DIE at the bottleneck that is the U.S. senate.
here's to Vermont's fearless senator Bernie Sanders and those who have stood in to help him in this TRUE filibuster, sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA):

fail in life, thus far. #1 in an ongoing series...

as much as this is a blog on fotos, sometimes politiks, sometimes film/movies, & seldom quirky/funny shit; the one unifying thing that keeps it together is music.
this is gonna be a music post.
this one is about one of my biggest fails in life.
i was perusin' the interwebz when i came across a blog post from boy-cott magazine about a new documentary, directed by michael rappaport, on legendary hip hop crew a tribe called quest.
this is where that major fail in life dawned on me.
a tribe called quest was the 2nd CD i ever bought [1st CD will be the subject of another post in the 'fail in life' series].
midnight marauders truly saved me from being some wannabe thuglet in northwest austin back in the early 90's. it opened up my ears to a different type of hip hop. one that wasn't about violence or the objectification of women. one that was influenced by jazz and bebop and so much more.
phife dawg + q-tip + ali shaheed muhammad + [sometimes] jarobi weren't larger than life, they were dudes who loved music, they were like any homie i had in school, but with talent galore.
i went on to seek all of a tribe called quest's music and any other music related to the native tongues posse. they were my gateway drug into my lifelong addiction w/hip hop music.
so, here's where i've failed: i never got to see these hip hop heroes live.
they even toured again sometime in 2006-07.
i thought i'd have another chance.
here's a preview of the documentary:



i hope to this fail becomes a win.

UPDATE:
newer preview video!

the rachel maddow show w/ @chrislhayes are thankful

i usually catch my hippie/liberal/socialist/commie propaganda the next day, online. so, sorry if you've already seen this. rachel is out on vacation, but chris hayes does a great job fillin' in for her.
i really liked this section about things to be thankful for. things we usually take for granted and are vilified by the right wing.

peligrosa all stars + dave nada @ club deville, november 19th 2010

we sure know how to throw a party down hurrrrr!
finally got cold in austin, in time for @dave nada to heat tings up w/the peligrosa crew @ club deville.
before dave got to bust out some tracks, some dummy @ the red river flats across the street called 5-0 to send our dancin' asses inside the club.
despite this interruption in moombahton services, the party picked up right where pagame/hobo d/dj orión/sonora/manolo black left off.
dave sure got everyone sweatin' & dancin'. breakin' doors & windows. glad the narcs didn't show up for that!
before the fotos, check out this rad video flier that orión put together:

@maddow's THE interview: a north carolina abortion provider talks about life w/a price on his head

on monday night, msnbc's the rachel maddow show got to interview the latest abortion provider who has become a target of the infamous "wanted" posters. the posters that the anti-choice movement claims is not their doing and/or should be protected as free speech.
it's a pretty chilling view into the courage it takes to do this job. a life SAVING job. a LEGAL job.
it's scary how the anti-choice movement pushes all this hate/fear-mongering, then when some nut-job murders an abortion provider, they just claim "it wasn't us! we didn't mean for nut-job X to KILL abortion provider Y"
it takes an amazing amount of hubris for these people to just claim there's no blood on their hands in these cold-blooded murderers.



if you can, please donate to your local or national planned parenthood. they need all the help they can get.

rightwing humour from the belly of the beast or how i learned to love family regardless of political orientation

i find this humorous.
not the "joke" itself, obviously, but just the fact that "they" think it's humorous.
everyone has this.
everyone has a side of their family that they don't agree with politically.
i'm sure they also think my hippie/liberal/fag-lovin'/socialist/heathen "jokes" are dumb.
the thing about it is that when we all get together during the holidays, we can put all that aside & sit down for a nice dinner & cold adult bevvies, have conversations about what's going on in our lives, how the "kids" are doing & all that.
the fact that i find their points of views moronic, doesn't keep me from loving these people.

i got this email from my cousin with the following text:

"A good laugh… I apologize if you get offended… sometimes the truth hurts! ;)
There's an old saying that seems to apply: Creative minds are rarely tidy. I've used that often to explain my desk/workspace.
A picture is worth a thousand words...........
A person's mind and his desk..........."



just to recap:
creative minds = messy desks
"geniuses" = messy desks = creative
punchline:
obama [doing an address to the nation, btw] = "numb nuts"
result:
barrels filled w/laughter.
numb nuts who "wrote" this joke = messy desk = creative? = genius? [THAT should've been the punchline!]

no wonder the 1/2 hour news hour didn't make it!

200 million dollars a day! or how the right wing doesn't give a fuck about facts...

...& cares very little about their audience & their audience just laps it up.
but that's the right & it's the way they do shit & that's not the reason i'm writing abou† this.
i want to show how succinctly and fairly cnn's anderson cooper just busts this incredibly stupid rumor right outta the water.
check it out:



this is the type of red meat conservatives love and it's a precursor to my next post.

giant steps productions presents: east side zombie pub crawl, october 29th 2010

my boy 'the bone' over @ giant steps productions & the lovely ashley whipped up a great zombie soirée on the east side of austin's drinkin' scene.
it all started out @ the liberty, where 30 undead joined up for some tasty zombie hour draaanks.
stop numbero dos was the new joint on the east 6th block, italo's pizza, where the zombie crew doubled in size!. benny from now dead creekside & still kickin' 04 lounge fame is makin' some really tasty pizza's @ this cool spot. please check 'em out when you get hungries.
stop numero tres was the brixton, where we met up w/so many zombies that i pretty much lost count. either that or i got tipsy!
stop numero cuatro was rio rita. i was not able to get their famed tasty bevies 'cause the line was just nuts! good time though. lots of great zombies!
stop numbero cinco was @ cheer up charlie's, where we met up w/zombies & bears & got to enjoy some fine tunes from the appropriately named butcher bear & charlie. no bevies @ this fine establishment either 'cause of the loooong zombie lines & lack of ca$h :(
the night got sweatier & bloodier @ the last stop of the crrrawl, iron gate. peligrosa's very own pagame & hobo d made our undead bodies rock w/a special guest spot from raw word chief dj orión.
though this first[?] east side zombie pub crawl pales in comparison to the big daddy crawl in minneapolis, we still got a great group of party people out for a super fun time.
thanks to all the bars, to james & ashley for putting together a great event & to all the pretty zombies for coming out.
enjoy my amigos muertos!

attn! nerdalert: photoshoppin' fun w/political ads


councilman joel burns & his husband j.d. angle interviewed on msnbc's the last word

this interview was done last night, during lawrence o'donnell's the last word.
it's a great view of the lead-up to mr. burns' epic speech at the fort worth city council.
something that mr. angle, a political consultant, said really made an impression on me & it's something that politicians should live by:
"when our elected officials and our public servants act with courage and integrity, they're almost always right."
words to represent by.


get your civic duty on! early voting locations for travis county

hey chica/os of the austin area!
even though it ain't sexxxy like in '08, we still need to get out & vote in these midterm elections.
the experts are saying that the youth will stay @ home this election year. make them eat those words.
pretty please! w/candy on top.
check out the file below [it will update automatically via travis county elections dept.] & find the convenientest spot for you to pull that lever. whichever side you swing for, just make sure your voice is heard.

learning secrets presents: sleigh bells @ beauty bar, october 9th 2010

tried to avoid the austin city limits festival as much as possible this year. got to leave town for work on thursday & even had a chance to stop in houston to hang w/one of my besties in her new/old digs.
couldn't stay away for the epicness @ @booty bar saturday night though. noise pop duo, @sleigh bells, were brought to town by the @learning secrets crew. i made it back to town just in time to wait during the longest soundcheck ever! i think there were some issues w/a sound board or something like it, whatever it was, it took a long time to get derek & alexis on stage. during the 2nd song, alexis' vocals were barely audible, but after that speed bump everything went smoothly. short. but smooth.
this was the 2nd time to see slay bells, & they have lived up to the slay part both times.
check out all the side stage shots i took!

motherfuckers need to pay attention! #whyimvotingDEMOCRAT!!

i read/listen/watch/breathe/eat/drink politics 23/7.
y'all may have noticed.
we're less than a month away from the midterm elections.
the meme is that democrats are plagued by an "enthusiasm gap".
the meme is that democrats are going to lose big this election.
the meme is that in the last year + 1/2, the administration hasn't done anything/enough.
the reality is that while we're not out of the shit hole [dug by politicians of the republican persuasion], we ARE on our way out of said shit hole.
took 8 years, for a previous administration & a compliant senate/house of reps, to get us in said shit hole.
com'n sonnn! it's gonna take a bit longer & lots MORE hard work to get out of it.

anyone out ther... a; ioeht;vsg
oops, sorry, i was rotfl. anyone out there! right!
anyway, i'd really like to know what other tax experts think about this piece.
i'm always skeptical of republicans & their chicken shit rhetoric hiding behind the "small business" fallacy.
countdown does a good job showing what kind of businesses abuse the s-corporation rule to maximize profits in spite of the well-being of the country & government.

girl in a coma + eagle claw @ booty bar & orión + richard henry @ creekside lounge, july 2nd 2010

here we go!
great lil' showcase @ booty bar w/girl in a coma + eagle claw. there was also some really cool t-shirts being sling'd by pure grease.
dash'd across the street to creekside lounge to dance to some of that good orión/richard henry tunage.
sad to say that unbeknown to all of us, that would be the last night @ creekside lounge. the bar closed its doors the next week. some really good times were had there :'(
oh.well.anyone know where the next hot spot is? i'm totally outta the loop nowadays.


unknown band @ red7 + orion/ulovei/congorock @ booty bar, july 1st 2010

looky loo!
finally a new post.
mr. comandante has been a lazy boy.
these fotitos are from a quickie night out sometime in early july.
went into red7 for a quick minute & took 3 shots of some band from houston[?].
hopped over to booty bar for another knuckle rumbler joint, ft. congorock; then left 'cause my main competition was all over that gig.
orión & ulovei opened up the night all nice & stuff.
cheers <3rs!
