samueldelany: For decades the governing cry of our cities has been “Never speak to strangers.” I propose that in a democratic society it is imperative that we speak to strangers live next to them, and learn how to relate to them on many levels, including the sexual. City venues must be designed to allow these multiple interactions to occur easily, with a minimum of danger, comfortably, and conveniently. This is what politics - the way of living in the polis, in the city - is about.

Stickshift Fest is in just three days! We have loads to do to get everything ready, but we can’t wait for this to happen - it’s going to be SO AWESOME.
We will have THREE different compilation CDs available at the fest FOR FREE (but we will take donations) featuring more than 30 amazing bands and almost 50 songs! One of these is a fresh re-pressing of our first comp, and one of them is a BRAND NEW UNRELEASED COMP that we’ve put together for the fest!
We’ll also have super cool Stickshift Recordings patches printed by our friends at Remote Screen Printing in Fayston, VT for $1.
And of course, we’ll have ALL of this at an 8 HOUR show with 10 BANDS!
It all goes down on Saturday at The Monkey House! Happy Birthday to us :)

If you’re poor, the only way you’re likely to injure someone is the old traditional way: artisanal violence, we could call it – by hands, by knife, by club, or maybe modern hands-on violence, by gun or by car.

But if you’re tremendously wealthy, you can practice industrial-scale violence without any manual labor on your own part. You can, say, build a sweatshop factory that will collapse in Bangladesh and kill more people than any hands-on mass murderer ever did, or you can calculate risk and benefit about putting poisons or unsafe machines into the world, as manufacturers do every day. If you’re the leader of a country, you can declare war and kill by the hundreds of thousands or millions. And the nuclear superpowers – the US and Russia – still hold the option of destroying quite a lot of life on Earth.

So do the carbon barons. But when we talk about violence, we almost always talk about violence from below, not above.
