Fourth Annual Masked Mardi Gras Party at Town Hall Tuesday, February 20,
Town Hall 342 Howard St, SF CA
For more information or to purchase tickets, visit

Guests are encouraged to don masquerade masks for this New Orleans' style party. A percentage of proceeds from the evening will go to a fund for Town Hall’s own Hector Sahagun, a bartender who was in a tragic head on taxicab collision on January 4, 2007 after leaving work.

The evening will be a raucous, roving feast, encouraging guests to roam about the restaurant to sample traditional New Orleans’ style foods prepared by Executive Chef/Owners Mitchell and Steven Rosenthal:

• a shellfish boil strewn over newspaper covered tables;
• a raw bar with oysters, crab and shrimp;
• a gumbo and jambalaya station;
• fried chicken;
• jalapeño corn bread;
• beer, wine and Pat O’Brien’s style Hurricanes, a cocktail synonymous with Mardi Gras.

Beads and doubloons will festoon the restaurant, and the feet tapping sounds of a New Orleans Dixie band will play throughout the night.

$65 per person. has a limited number of tickets available for $57.99.

For more information, visit or contact info [at]


Words that Talk to the Clit and the Cock: Erotic Writing and Why it Matters
Sex writing can be sublime, thought-provoking, raunchy, or ridiculous. It can feed stereotypes or bust them; it can be a power for sex-positive growth, a visceral way to connect your head with your body, a way to jump-start fantasy or a way to escape your own identity completely. Noted erotic author and memoirist Carol Queen will share her perspectives on written porn and erotic literature, and will include plenty of snippets of her work by way of example, and maybe inspiration.
Location: One Taste, 1074 Folsom Street (Cross Street: 7th) in San Francisco
Tuesday, 2/20, 7:45--9:45, $10-15 requested but no one will be turned away for lack of $.

Abundance League 2/22, 6pm

Dear Abundance Leaguers,

Our monthly meeting is next Thursday, February 22nd at 6pm. You're
invited! Note: meetings are the third Thursday every month except
December when we'll take a break.

In addition to regular announcements by members, we are delighted that
Matthew Blom will
give an abbreviated version of his class, The Art of Authentic
Communication. This class
and discussion are designed to help folks shift to greater
understanding, collaboration, and
fulfillment in their relationships through authentic communication.

Matthew first came to The Abundance League over a year ago when
embarking on a new
career in facilitation, mediation, and nonviolent communication. It's
obvious he has pursued
his passion with gusto since then having completed a year long
training at the Bay Area
Nonviolent Communication leadership program and facilitated groups of
up to 300 people in Open Space Technology, including The National
Conference for Dialogue and Deliberation and the US Project Speaking
Peace conference.

If you've ever met Matthew, you know that he radiates calm in a way
that sets the stage for positive transformation. His class promises
to be great learning experience that can help bring more of what
matters into our lives. You can learn more about his class and
for the full length version of it here:

We hope to see you next Thursday!

Abundantly yours,

Neal White Arrow & Maritza

discovery channel airs program on CHEMTRAILS Th Feb 22 9pm ET/PT

The new time for the Discovery Channel's BEST EVIDENCE presentation of the program "Chemical Contrails" is now Thursday, February 22, 2007, at 9:00 p.m. They will show it again early Friday morning, February 23, at 1:00 a.m.

If they are allowed to show it (It was supposed to have been shown on Feb. 8, but never happened), this will be the first time the chemtrail issue has been addressed on mainstream TV. I understand that the program does have some substance. Would you share this information with your readers.

Heads Up everyone, (FYI)

Chemtrail Spraying investigation about to air on the Discovery Channel.

Watch the Discovery Channel program "Chemical Contrails", Feb. 8, 2007

Check your local listing for time of airing.

I have been told by sources close to the making of this film that it
will not be the usual blasé put down of the Chemtrail Spraying issue but
a fair look at the subject without any preconceived bias.

Quote: the Best Evidence combines dramatic documentary storytelling with
today's technology and advances in science to unravel and test both
long-held and recent mysteries. We go to any limits — using science
rather than loose conjecture — to make definitive points leading us to
the very Best Evidence. Get a preview of the upcoming episodes.

Episode 3: Chemical Contrails

Across the planet, millions of people have seen them — jet aircraft
vapor trails lingering in the sky. Are these just regular "contrails" —
the carbon and water vapor exhaust from commercial planes — or are they
potentially toxic "chemical trails" emitted intentionally as part of
secret geo-engineering experiments or weather-weaponization tests?
Experts and passionate observers on both sides present their best
evidence — from video and photographs, satellite imagery, soil samples
and military evidence. We shed light on a subject that has many people
looking up for answers to disturbing questions. A team of technicians at
an independent laboratory will examine the samples to finally get to the
heart of the question: What is in those fuel emissions and what causes
them to linger for hours and link up with one another like a ghostly
blanket that seems to affect the weather and perhaps our health?
Premiere: Feb. 8, 2007

DJ Miles Maeda (Ouvre, Aroma, Apt Entertainment)--Los Angeles/Chicago

Miles Maeda was one of the pioneering members of Chicago's scene in the early '90s, putting out a slew of now legendary mixtapes that inspired many a young aspiring dj. Miles has since grown to be a favorite dj of many, known for his precise mixing skills and poised presence behind the decks. Sharing a residency at Chicago's Smartbar alongside Justin Long and DJ Heather, travelling the world to share his music with everyone, and consistently putting out top notch tracks keeps Miles very busy. We are very excited to have him out for our 2nd Tonal party and can't wait to hear him lay it down!

Brown (Drop Music, Aroma, Mobile Trax)--Nottingham, UK

Nottingham based vocalist and producer, Brown is one of the key players in the new UK sound which has had a huge impact on the record bags of our favorite dj's. Featured in collaborations with Littlemen, Inland Knights, Da Sunlounge, Andrew Phelan & Origami, and Bryan Jones, Brown has put tracks out on many a hot label such as Drop, Mobile Trax, Aroma, Myna, Prismatic, and many more. Brown's debut SF appearance at Crush-o-matic last summer had everybody grooving, and we are happy to welcome him back for Round Two for another dj set featuring himself on live vocals.

Andrew Phelan and Origami (Prismatic, Drop Music, So Sound)

One of SF's fastest growing duos in both the DJ and production realms, Andrew and Origami put down some serious business. The boys tore it up at Electric Blue and will surely do so again this time. A Chicago native, Mr. Phelan brings the funk just how we like it with Origami backing him up on live bass keeping the speakers booming and your bodies moving!

Eric Sharp (Rock It Science)

Founder of the Rock It Science crew, Eric Sharp has quickly built a name for himself with his infectious energy behind the decks and the versatility to rock any party. Eric's opening set at Electric Blue got everybody going just right. This time Eric will throw down a Fire Engine Red closing set, leaving everybody begging for more and heading for the Endup.

Rob Crush (Crush Collective)

Buckle up San Francisco! Rob Crush seems to be everywhere at once, spreading the good word about some of our city's favorite parties. What you may not know about Rob is that he has secretly been honing his craft, mixing records deep within the bowels of a dj research laboratory covered by a biotechnology front. You are going to wonder why you haven't heard from Rob sooner, and we look forward to seeing him get a lot more action on the decks!

Free film screening and public forum on February 24 at SF Public
Library Koret Auditorium. 55 Grove St @ Market / 8th / Hyde / Larkin

Eliza Heminway's documentary film "Closing the Books" and a public
will be held February 24th for to help save the 5.8
acre historic UC Berkeley Extension campus from the wrecking ball and
make sure this historic treasure paid for with our tax dollars remains
in public use. UC Regents have engaged a private developer, AF
Evans, to
convert this historic site into high density
condo and retail space in the name of profit. Their proposal is
currently under review by the SF Planning Department. UC Regents are
seeking to rezone the campus, which if approved, will permanently end
its 150 year history of public use. A public hearing is scheduled for
March 8th at the San Francisco Planning Commission; it is the only
public process planned
regarding the re-zoning of the campus. Film Screening and Public
to be held:

WHEN: Saturday, February 24, 4:15 - 5:30 PM, Free

WHERE: The San Francisco Public Library, 100 Larkin St. (at Grove),
Koret Auditorium, located on the library's lower level. Enter at 30
Grove St. and proceed down stairs. Special needs parking is
available on
and Fulton Streets.

NOTE: This program is sponsored by the Friends of 1800, Save the UCBE
Laguna Street Campus and Trinity Productions, and is not a San
Francisco Library Sponsored program. Contact (415) 563-7336 for
additional information.

The program will begin with a screening of Eliza Hemenway's new
documentary UNCOMMON KNOWLEDGE: Closing the Books at UC Berkeley
Extension, a poetic journey inside UC Berkeley Extension as plans
unfold to close its historic San Francisco campus and convert it into
a lucrative private development. Filmmaker Eliza Hemenway worked at
the campus for over six years. Wondering why UC Regents were closing a
campus with a 150 year history of public use, she picked up her camera
and began to film. The result is a revealing look into higher
education and culture, as well as a hauntingly beautiful portrait of a
campus and the community it served. Accompanied by an edgy urban
soundtrack written and performed by locally acclaimed musician Tim
Barsky and Everyday Theatre with additional music by The Toids.
The film screening will be followed by a brief Q&A with the filmmaker
and a public forum.

A panel will present information on the historic and planning issues
related to the reuse of the Campus. The panel will include: Charles
Chase, AIA, Executive Director, San Francisco Architectural Heritage;
Mark Paez, Urban Planner and Co-Chair, Friends of 1800; Warren Dewar,
Attorney and Board Member, Hayes Valley Neighborhood Association
(HVNA); and Tamara Colby, Urban Planner and Co-Chair, Save the UCBE
Laguna Street Campus.

A Public Hearing on the Draft EIR will be held Thursday, March 8, 2007
in Room 400, City Hall. Call 558-6422 the week of the hearing for a
recorded message for the exact time of hearing. A request has been
made to hold the hearing at 6:00 PM. Again, this is the only public
process planned regarding the re-zoning of the campus.

Save the UCBE Laguna Street Campus was founded to establish a Citizens
Advisory Committee to determine the highest and best use of the campus

Legacy of Torture:
The War Against The Black Liberation Movement

The same people who tried to kill me in 1973 are the same people who are here today, trying to destroy me. I mean it literally. I mean there were people from the forces of the San Francisco Police Department who participated in harassment, torture and my interrogation in 1973 ... none of these people have ever been brought to trial. None of these people have ever been charged with anything. None of these people have ever been questioned about that. -- John Bowman, former Black Panther

In 2005 several former members of the Black Panther were held in contempt and jailed for refusing to testify before a San Francisco Grand Jury investigating a police shooting that took place in 1971. The government alleged that Black radical groups were involved in the 34-year old case in which two men armed with shotguns attacked the Ingleside Police Station resulting in the death of a police sergeant and the injuring of a civilian clerk.

In 1973, thirteen alleged "Black militants" were arrested in New Orleans, purportedly in connection with the San Francisco events. Some of them were tortured for several days by law enforcement authorities, in striking similarity to the horrors visited upon detainees in Guantánamo and Abu Ghraib.

In 1975, a Federal Court in San Francisco threw out all of the evidence obtained in New Orleans.

The two lead San Francisco Police Department investigators from over 30 years ago, along with FBI agents, have re-opened the case. Rather than submit to proceedings they felt were abusive of the law and the Constitution, five men chose to stand in contempt of court and were sent to jail. They were released when the Grand Jury term expired, but have been told by prosecutors that "it isn't over yet."

Save the Date for Solstinox - March 3, 2007
Do you all remember that one night of the year we are farthest from the Man, yet equally distant from two encounters with his flames?
Do you all remember the intense playa energy this planetary alignment generates, and how hard it kicks us into the season of Man?
It’s coming back. Soon!
This year, it will be at Mighty in SF. It will be mighty big. The events committee that puts on SF Decom will make it happen. And it will be a fundraiser for Black Rock Arts Foundation. This year, the vision we created in 04 is all coming together!
That special night of the year our spirits named Solstinox is coming back March 3. If you don’t save the date, you must not remember…
I can’t wait to dance with your playa souls again when the planets align. Sunshine
PS: More to come when it comes.

Do you have a compelling vision you keep to yourself yet yearn to express?
Are you daunted by some of the challenges that you face as you pursue your goals?

Great space, that looks really nice inside. Castle Room, Barnyard, Retro Bar Room, Jail Room, and more.
The theme is going to be: "The Hare-Itics Ball : Ye Ole Bunny Jamme" Hop with it.
We really need some fresh bunny art so it's not just the same stuff recycled from last year.
We have alot of small (as in up to 5x5 feet) spaces spread around the venue that we'd love to fill with bunny art. This is where you come in to play. Do you have an idea for an art installation, interactive art piece, performance art piece, or anything really, that you would like to bring to bunny jam?
If so, send me a message or email me at sfaaron26 [at]
We also need general volunteers for set up and running the party, but that doesn't take as much advanced planning.
