boom boom ditly dat dat scum

dud(ettes), checkin in! the hut is coming along, with the uprights and ribs in place. this saturday we shall collect the thatching materials, whatever we decide on. please join in the fun if you wish, cuz i wishit. check out the inspiration for our design here: pictures are forthcoming!

let me add that the hut is in La P.A.Z. territory (Permanent Autonomous Zone), meaning it's filled with good things like tadpoles, beautiful flowers, etc. noticably absent are the vicious domesticated pigs that i encountered last week when George Walker Bush Jr. came to speak at a local college. my statist friends were there (protesting?) and, not being really into the sign waving, i walked into the woods to get fiber for cordage. little did i know that there was some imaginary line (a particularly UNGUARDED one) between the woods and i, so when i came out the bobbies were waiting. and strangely enough, the secret service were a lot more chill than the local pigs. badges=sewage. i don't hate sewage, i don't hate people. but you know the best place for sewage? not in these fucking creeks. either a) in a hole or b) in a composting toilet thingie.

urban exploring is duh shit! werebrock went up to the highest point in all of losantaville during a lightning storm the other night, in a wicked decrepit structure. he wishes he could show ya'll pictures. if you know what he's talking about, go for it. the view's incredible. also, anyone who wants to freegan their way into a movie, with a soft drink, there's a limited time opportunity. think like a ninja and you'll figure it out

my buddy Pipigwan is almost back in town. together we'll be unstoppable. this is a season for the adventures of myth, my friends. blessed be our CrimeThinc. co-conspirators and thousands of other (hero)ines for inspiration

few last things: Critical Mass this Friday and every Final Friday in the Twin Cities and the nasty, nasty 'Nati. Twins, meet at Loring Park in Minneapolis at 5 p.m. to ride at about 5:30. 'Natians be at the little bit of Fountain Square that's left (right by Rock Bottom Brewery) around 5:30, we'll head off at 6.

I'll post Seaweed's stuff some other time. and maybe you want to check out Julia while she's in town, a tree sitting friend of mine who knows her told me she rocks. and it'll be where all the cool kids at. peace
