Monday Morning Musical Musings with Paul Bourgeois
Make it part of your Monday Morning.
Hip-hop can start from jazz and blues. But where do jazz and blues come from? Music is like God, I guess. There is no beginning or end. I can’t touch it. I can’t talk about it. It’s too big. So I can only show MY road, the road I took to get to my idea of hip-hop. And, if you respect that, maybe something of it belongs to everyone. And I can’t even pretend I know what that means.Monday Morning Musical Musings with Paul Bourgeois Make it part of your Monday... more

Sometimes people decide to call things FAILs, when they aren’t really that FAIL. I try to find the glimmer of goodness in everything, so this is another edition of some FAILs that I don’t think are really FAILs.
Oh so when a terrorist decides to surrender we call that a FAIL? I think that sounds a lot more like a WIN. Homeland security, if you set up more booths at more conventions, more terrorists will turn themselves in.
If you ever need to evacuate from a mall in Mexico its best to follow the designated route. If you have trouble escaping you might say "it's a bitch of an evacuation" and this is how you'd say it in Spanish.
How could this be a FAIL? It's an engineering miracle. The contractors have figured out a way to develop the world's first invisible balcony.
CAPTCHA just wants to be sure that you aren't some sort of robotic sex fiend. That would spark the end of civilization as we know it.
I've never seen Harry Potter, but people seem to like it. So just because you didn't like how the book ended does not make this a FAIL.

After last week's UN meetings, the Obamas took a photos with José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero and the Spanish Prime Minister's family. The daughters dressed like they were preparing for a night out with The Cure.
The Prime Minister has tried to keep his daughters out of the public eye. Despite convincing the state-owned Spanish news agency EFE not to distribute the photos, the images ended up on the front page of several Spanish newspapers.
These first daughters have potential to be the most notable Goths in Spain since the Visigoth conquest of the 7th century. The Goth subculture exists in Spain, as it does in much of the world. Goticos were featured in a 2006 episode of a Spanish news magazine.
The Gothic family photos have prompted a Facebook group called Las hijas góticas de Zapatero. The group has over 14 thousand fans. And like all great newsworthy images, these pictures have prompted Photoshoppers worldwide to turn this into a meme.
There is the minimalist approach, by dressing the entire party in black, to signify their inner angst.
Then we have a more hardcore version of the Rodriguez Zapatero daughters leading the group in a Satanic sacrificial ritual. Note the US president's commitment to cultural diversity, by symbolically "raising the horns."
Meme-sters have quickly connected the Goths with cinema. In these examples we see references to The Ring, The Shining, Edward Scissorhands and The Exorcist.
The final image shows the entire clan celebrating the commercialism of contemporary Goth culture, alongside pro-heavy metal activists Los Hermanos Alcázar. The 41 year-old twins stand in front of the site of a former Madrid rock venue every night, to commemorate its legacy. They are avidly opposed to the commodification of rock n roll.
Spain has a bright future in darkness.
Learn how to Goth yourself.

Dark Faced Anima Mine
By Reid Baer
I find myself strolling through a garden replete
with cold iconic sculptures Madonna-like from
an era much more Catholic than now. She appears
walking intently toward class climbing the steps to
a temple-like building with thick columns. I fix
my gaze on her. She seems to fit into the scheme
of our surroundings. She is of an ancient class
of cultured sophisticated dark skinned people.
Her light brown face draws me to her in a stunning
most captivating way. She notices me. I
ask her a question from a distance. She can not
hear so she moves closer to me. I repeat the
question but stare at that face – that face that smiles and
responds in perfect Spanish - so I dust off my
failing Castellano and communicate as
best I’m able in haltering sentences. She
is supplicant and enticing and I succumb
in a kind of sudden psychic trance and then just
as suddenly … it’s a blur ... next I remember
she is in our bed room and very much pregnant
with my child but I don’t remember the sex with
her. I wish I could. I bet it was good. She stands
there so small yet protruding so large and still so
beguiling by the nearby dresser drawers as I
focus in on her studious dark rimmed glasses
framing her dark face. She is more demanding with
me now as she moves about responding to the
voices throughout the big house from both sides of our
families who are in the fast throws of our nuptial
planning which she takes in feminine stride and I
want her in my life so I sit up and go to
her and hold her petite body close to mine. She
is so small but she is mine and beloved. She
responds in kind with soothing Spanish words I strain
to understand about her commitment to our
new familiarity and future as a
family. She breaks off the embrace and joyfully
reveals a collection of baby clothes gifted
to her by the relative crones and sorts through them
demonstrating each item: tiny socks, baby
booties, a little jumper for the Christening ...
I love to see her happy face … I’m sleepy and
I return to bed. She wakes me up later and
says she hates to see me sleeping in – okay, but
how else am I going to find important clues to
what is really happening to me or to you?

Embracing My Roots
This year I decided to take Black History Month seriously. I'm enrolled in a program at the Omega Boys Club in San Francisco where the teacher, Ms. Estell, has made it a point to educate us about Black history since I've know her.
When she asked us, "what is your responsibility for Black History Month?" I answered, "To educate others about my culture." However, due to the fact I knew very little about my culture, I had to listen intently to what she was teaching us.
She began with what I like to call a prep talk. Every history book that I've had at school always started talking about the African culture at the time of Slavery. Every year that was always an arkward time for me. Many students would try to lighten the mood by saying, "Oh I hate white people." Nevertheless, it still hurt me to think my ansters were, "invented" for such horrible treatment. Ms. Estell, who became very passionate at this point said, "YOU WERE NOT INVENTED DURING SLAVERY!" She might not have known, but it really stuck a cord with me. "You were KINGS and QUEENS!"

An Oakland college student who shot video of a wild fight on an AC Transit bus said the altercation started because of a remark about shoe shining.
“The white guy was asking the black guy for a shoeshine,” said Iyanna Washington who shot the video with a small camera. “And I guess the black guy took it as a racist comment, like, ‘Why’s a black guy have to spit shine your shoes?’”

The fight happened just before 3 p.m. Monday on Oakland’s NL Bus line near the Thomas Berkeley stop. The shoeshine statement started an argument that went back and forth for several minutes.
On the video that Washington recorded, the bearded man eventually walked away up to the front of the bus. But the men continued to trade insults. The younger guy threw the first punch.An Oakland college student who shot video of a wild fight on an AC Transit bus said... more
I bow myself at the grave of Victor Schoelcher in the parisian cemetery of Pere la chaise.
A billboard campaign in Atlanta has raised questions over whether abortion providers target minority communities.
On the billboard is a black and white photo with a close up of a black toddler's face. He looks troubled, nearly in tears.
The caption in bold letters reads: "Black Children Are An Endangered Species."
Catherine Davis with Georgia Right to Life says that the billboards are meant to grab people's attention.
"They don't know the impact that abortion is having on the black community," Davis says. "And so we wanted to awaken the community to the holocaustic impact abortion has had."
The billboards have raised the ire of some who live nearby.
"It's incredibly offensive," says Heidi Williamson of SisterSong, a reproductive health group for women of color. "And it's just horrific to have to drive by it everyday."
According to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention, more than 50 percent of the abortions in Georgia in 2006 were performed on black women — though blacks make up about 30 percent of the state's population. While Williamson acknowledges the numbers, she sees the billboards as an attack on black women.
"The enemy is not black women," Williamson says. "The enemy is poverty. The enemy is uninsured children and not properly funding education so that we can make sure there are comprehensive sex-education programs and pregnancy prevention programs."
Williamson says making the choice when and whether to have children is a woman's right.
About 60 billboards have gone up in Atlanta so far. Another 20 are expected by next week. They direct people to a pro-life Web site that calls abortion an assault on the black community — and says that Planned Parenthood and other clinics are targeting minorities to exterminate them.
"I believe the abortion industry is advertising, they're making it attractive," says Davis. "They're framing it in terms of civil rights in order to pull this particular demographic into their abortuary."
Abortion rights activists deny the allegations. They say 86 percent of Georgia counties do not have an abortion provider. Of the 15 providers that exist, just four are in predominantly black neighborhoods.
In addition to the billboard campaign, a bill filed this week in Georgia would make it a felony to solicit or coerce a woman to have an abortion based on the race, color or sex of a fetus or parent.
Leola Reis with Planned Parenthood of Georgia says the law is just another attempt to restrict abortion.
"I think that these kinds of bills are a real distraction from the overwhelming issues that we have in this state," she says. "I think the community is going to become quickly tired of this kind of tactic."
Lynn Hogue, a law professor at Georgia State University, says the bill violates the First Amendment rights of clinics, as well as women's right to privacy.
"It's absurd that the law would purport to identify certain reasons that you could not use — or could not have — as a reason for having an abortion," Hogue says. "They may not appeal to everybody, but certainly the reason for having an abortion is you don't want to carry a pregnancy to term. And whatever reason shapes that decision is constitutionally protected."
While the debate continues in Georgia, The Radiance Foundation, which created the billboards, says it is in talks to expand the "endangered species" campaign to Washington, D.C., and perhaps to other cities.A billboard campaign in Atlanta has raised questions over whether abortion providers... more
