the gun dilemma: or how facts just can't make a dent on this american love affair

since the horrendous events of last saturday in tucson, az; some pundits have actually taken up the great gun debate.
rachel maddow of the rachel maddow show is one of these pundits.
it's another reason why i watch her show w/a passion.
tonight she displayed this:

as a sociology major & general statistics nerd, i truly wish people would use logic instead of emotion on these issues.

#freeweek: the means @red_7 + bonus foto shoot + "stand up" single, january 4th 2011

this was pretty much it for me during free week oh.eleven.
i was totally drained from my 2 week xxxmas/nye staycation in austin.
started gettin' sick 'round this specific night.
a bummer, but did manage to get some much needed rest for these 30+ y/o bones.
my homeboy dialek fronts this 4-5 piece unit called the means.
they have been playing around austin for the better part of oh.ten & it feels like oh.eleven is gonna bring some well deserved attention their way.
the fellas opened up this hip hop showcase to a good crowd of headz. i was stoked to hear quite a number of new tracks they've been working on since i last saw 'em.
check 'em out on stage:

also got to shoot some band fotos for the boys in the red 7 green room before their set:

in the spirit for free week, dialek sent me a track for all your hungry ears:

re: "Must be nice to be homeless in Austin."

fuck yeah it must be!
i can't afford to buy even the sushi from heb & a bottle of that swill from houston, ozarka?
i'm walking away from this job, car, condo, & start sleepin' under i35, beggin' for change and/or leftovers.
gonna have to get good @ clever sign making though.
or, maybe my voice will miraculously become like that of a sportscaster or radio jock & some do-gooder will make a video of me, then i'll get hired by msnbc or some NBA team.
take that chumps!
i just beat the system!
