Archive for the ‘Donuts’ Category

Wow. Thanks to everyone who has taken an interest in press freedom, community radio, music outside the mainstream and everything else I’ve posted here in the past couple years. I’ve never been motivated by trying to drive traffic here, thus it took me years to get to 15,000 hits. Been more focused on keeping an archive of my writing, my radio work, aggregated news, and other fun stuff.

The day I got the most traffic (317 hits) was when I broke the news that the student government of Evergreen College was releasing footage (later removed from YouTube) of the infamous Valentine’s Day Riot after Dead Prez played a show on our campus in February of 2008. My friends at 206 Zulu put together a thought-provoking video about that night. So check this out, and please come back to my site again soon!

MYTH: Evergreen students have no respect for authority. FACT: Olympia Police escalated a volatile situation, beat up random people, then fled the scene. (Unfortunately many kids lost control after seeing such an outrageous invasion of our institution by violent cops and sacrificed credibility for cathartic release on a symbol of police oppression, the cruiser. We can discuss whether property destruction is violence at a later date. It’s bigger than hip hop.)

Check it out, this week’s show is available to download or stream!

The show was dedicated to Andrea Holland who is facing 4 felony charges in Boise, accused of running a major ecstasy operation. Lots of drugs are dangerous, from crack and speed to Vioxx and Viagra. The point is locking people up for half their lives for some drugs while Big Pharma makes billion dollar profits is unjust.
