commented on Bainbridge Island Trumpcare Protesters Cancel Die-In Demonstration in the Wake of London Attacks
It's easy for me to bitch about this from behind my computer, but I don't see any reason to cancel an event like the Westlake die-in because of what happened in London. That only makes attacks like these more effective.
What happened in London was terrible, and the victims could have been any of us. But how many people die each day in the United States due to lack of access to decent health care? It's a lot more than 4.
commented on Five Reasons the Red Hot Chili Peppers Are Maybe Okay?
I don't know where all the Chili Pepper hate comes from. I lived in LA from '86 to '92, saw them at medium-sized clubs and always had a good time. Mother's Milk is a great party album.
And by the way, the mid/late-80s was a really shitty time for music in LA. Hair bands lined the Sunset Strip. Bands like the RHCP, Jane's Addiction (also widely-hated for some reason), Thelonious Monster, Fishbone, Mary's Danish and X made the LA music scene bearable.
