1) Local News

           No, just because it is cold as hell does not mean that 
           climate change has stopped. Just ask Jon Stewart.

           Plastic bag bans are not enough.         
           We are throwing away our shiny stuff too quickly. Oh, yeah, and 
           there is no "AWAY" for it to go to. Unless you count 
           Imperial Valley via traincars. 

          1989 LA Times article pushing trains pushing trash.

          The 19th century abandoned gold mine that is now a gold mine
           for landfill contract-holders.

           LA Weekly, as always. 

           Occupy got a big All King's Day present (see below).
2)  Other News

           Chase pays off as cheap as is humanly possible. Yeah, 
           $20B sounds like a lot, and it is. To me. To you.
           But it is also true that the last five years have been good.
           You want some data on just how good? The worst year 
           they had, 2008, they were in the black over $5B. Since then,
           their profits have been so ridiculous that they pick this up
           like a bar tab, and just move on. They are on track this 
           year to clear $23B, net.

           Sleeping, sleepy, boring, racist, angry, ignorant people 
           multiplying rapidly. Brilliant children convinced that they
           are stupid and that it is all over for them. Suffering,
           sadness, stupidity, and silly greed driving it all...

2a) Boycott List :  Pat Robertson, Monsanto, Cold Play, Foo Fighters, 
                           Linkin Park, Newsmax, Charlie Sheen, Stacy Keach, 
                           Walmart, Wikipedia

2b) Hero List :

3)  Local Loco

            Make your own art and share it. Like this guy.

In 2007, I put this up on a sheet of
plywood and decorated it with lights, just like the manger scenes of my
neighbors. It had a one day run.



4)       Calendar 

                 Free Museums on January 25!

                 Thursdays in Westwood, always. 
                 Saturday mornings on the radio with Uncle Ruthie, on 90.7 FM, KPFK.

                 Always bad parking and good music at McCabes in Santa Monica.

                 And Mary Katherine's page, too, Alive And Picking for a more far-flung fling.

                 Folkworks Calendar

                 LA Weekly

                 ANGRY AMERICANS! returns to You Tube!

5)          "The Green Book" goes onto the list. Elizabeth Rogers has put
              together an effective tome, here. Lots of celebrity references, 
              for those TMZ friendly among you. Lots of links for more info, 
              'cause the odds are there will be at most one thing that you 
              actually TAKE from the book and use, and care of Ms. Rogers
              you won't have to rely on Google for the links.

6)          Lit Minit : Frankenstein. The monster speaks.
Thank you so much for reading and listening. I hope you had fun. Now:

No money was paid to anyone for anything here, so look somewhere else!

"The Journey," by Douglas Whiting can be read with great love and respect and hope for your enjoyment. This time with complete endorsement, authorization, and  permission from the author.

We did not pay anyone for use of the opening music from Cake ("Wheels," off of "Pressure Chief") or the close music either:
 Spin Doctors "More Than She Knows," too. Mr. Scruff is still waiting for his check, too. The close music is his song "Kalimba." We will share when there is something to share.
