SF: Need audience member for Penn show tonight

Last night I was at the Good Vibrations Holiday Party at DNA lounge in San Francisco.
I chatted with Carol Queen about this. (and I was actually filmed for it too.) She asked me to forward this to my readers and any folks who might be interested.

Penn (of Penn and Teller fame) has a new cable show call "Bullshit!" and it's about debunking commonly held ideas. The first show will be on virginity. They're looking for sex positive folks.

Tonight they're doing a studio style talk show at the Center for Sex and Culture.

If you're interested, e mail Carol Queen at mail@sexandculture.org by 5pm to get the details.
It will be at CSC, located at 398 11th Street at Harrison

Pass it on!

So the British Post Office was able to figure out and deliver mail to, "Dan the mushroom man, in his van at the side of the road on the Burgess Hill Roundabout, somewhere near Brighton".

This has me wondering, if you were to make up an address like that for yourself (that is accurate and could possibly work), what would it be?

Also, "The Mushroom Man"? Why do I suspect the drug enforcement officers showed up shortly after the the mail was delivered?

You are The Star


Hope, expectation, Bright promises.


The Star is one of the great cards of faith, dreams realised


The Star is a card that looks to the future. It does not predict any immediate or powerful change, but it does predict hope and healing. This card suggests clarity of vision, spiritual insight. And, most importantly, that unexpected help will be coming, with water to quench your thirst, with a guiding light to the future. They might say you're a dreamer, but you're not the only one.


What Tarot Card are You?

Senate Fails To Reauthorize Patriot Act Provisions

Fails? Associated Press (who CNN got the article from) is just a little politically biased? Doesn't seem like a failure to me.

Actually this is a pet peeve of mine... Is it possible to find unbiased political reporting?

To say "Senate Fails To Reauthorize Patriot Act Provisions" or "Senate Succeeds In Ending Patriot Act Provisions" speak of a political bias. Where as "Senate Does Not Vote To Extend Patriot Act Provisions" would be less slanted.

Wow! I've been playing Gun on the Gamecube and I think it's been a long time since I've seen a game this politically incorrect. It plays out like a serious spagetti western and it uses all the racial slurs you would expect to hear from the 1800's. Plus graphic violence, prostitutes, sex, hunting and killing animals (with guns and trampling them with your horse), riding horses to death...

  1. I'm shocked this game ever made it to the market.
  2. I'm surprised parents are not up in arms over the game.

But all that a side, the story line does play out like a classic western, the game dynamics are good, and the graphics are excellent.

I'll finish the game, but it's seems like every new scene my jaw is dropping with "I can't believe they just did that!"

It's definately rated Mature for a reason.

Anyway, just let it serve as a warning/sales pitch as to what you are getting into when you buy/rent/borrow the game.
