1st Annual San Francisco Youth Unity Eco-Fest in Civic Center

Sunday, June 7th, 2009

The 1st Annual San Francisco Youth Unity Eco-Fest occurred in San Francisco’s Civic Center yesterday. Didn’t seem to have all that good a turnout, but I was there early on.

“A day-long Environmental Summit & Green Block Party, celebrating youth voice and power, raising awareness around environmental justice and connecting communities across the city, with music, DJs, workshops, interactive booths, Eco carnival games, a showcase of student projects awards ceremony, give-aways, solar power, pedal power, Earth Pledge, networking, resource fair and more…”

Powering the amplifiers with pedal power:

Looks to be an array of motorcycle batteries storing power.

How’s the system voltage? 23.7? Check, check, check…

How do you turn the sound down on this MySpace page? No se. Used the Volume Mixer, that’ll do it.

And There You Have It.

Don’t Believe in Clinton/Obama Unity Yet? Then You’re Delusional!

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

Comes now Randy Shaw of Beyond Chron (oops, try here or here instead – you know, if a bunch of people want to get something deleted from Wikipedia, they can do it. Man, what is it with some people?) who pronounces:

“Anyone who tells you there is disunity at this [Democratic National] convention is not simply delusional—they are flat out lying.”

Mmmm. That certainly matches the Party Line. Check out this “Joint Statement from Maggie Williams, Senior Advisor to Senator Clinton and David Axelrod, Senior Strategist to Senator Obama” regarding “THE FACT” of unity states this:

“Anyone saying anything else doesn’t know what they’re talking about. Period.”

However, this is all spin. People, there is disunity at this convention. All conventions really, but this one in particular. Some are unusually outraged.

At least these folks were unified, back in the day:

The people over at PUMA (Party Unity My Ass or People United Means Action) PAC would certainly beg to differ. (Might need to update this entry if PUMA talk keeps up.)

And speaking of which, was James Carville wearing Puma shoes on the convention floor? Perhaps this was just a wardrobe malfunction?

Oh well. San Franciscans might want to come down to the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero in the Financial District on Thursday night, August 28th, to check out some genuine unity when Obama speaks.
