WhoaWhoaWhoa...what reason did they give for stopping her? That doesn't even seem possible. I've been of the mindset that people were blowing this law out of proportion, but maybe I'm wrong.

I was kidding, in keeping with the facetious tone I detected in Tom's post.


Not sure if this was already posted or if anyone cares here but the Lillith Fair was cancelled in Phoenix.

http://www.azcentral.com/thingstodo/music/articles/2010/05/21/20100521lilith-canceled-go-gos-protest.html#ixzz0ohKsLyKR

Although no reason has been given, Belinda Carlisle posted her objections to the Phoenix gig on Facebook earlier this month - "in protest of the new immigration law

in ARIZONA."

Carlisle's post went on to say the Go-Go's "condemn the law and want the date moved."

I would've cared about the Lillith Fair only for Cat Power, but I'd rather not be the only hetero man in attendance just to see her perform, so whatever. Again, though, another case of misguided protest on the part of these musicians. Because, y'know, I'm sure the Go-Go's fans are rabid proponents for SB1070.

Done!

I had a conversation with Michael Bidwill a few months back about Sun Devil. I used to have season tix back at SD stadium too, so we were reflecting back on the "old" days. He's actually not a bad guy. Was expecting him to be an ass.

When I first started going to the Cardinals games it was with a buddy (whose wife decided not to go with him any more since they had young kids). This guy is a lawyer who worked in the US Attorney's office at the time and had been a co-worker with Michael Bidwill when he worked there, and got to know him a bit. His take was Michael was solid even though the father was crazy and Bill Jr an asshole.

Not sure if any of you travel to Rocky Point but.....be careful would be an understatement.

http://www.kvoa.com/news/us-consulate-issues-warning-about-fake-checkpoints-in-mexico/

NOGALES, Ariz. - A travel warning has been issued from the U.S. consulate in Mexico after several unconfirmed reports of unauthorized checkpoints.

According to officials, some motorists who didn't stop were shot at and killed.

The area affected is along Highway 8, between the border and Rocky Point.

Motorists are advised to limit travel to major roads during daylight hours and to cooperate if they do come across an unofficial checkpoint.


This report has apparently caused a lot of questions. It appears the Nogales consulate is putting out rumors as there is not a single person, witness or official who can substantiate the claim that any american was ever shot for not showing papers.


While it is not unusual for the U.S. Consulate in Nogales, Sonora to release a travel advisory for parts of Mexico, the latest warrant, dated May 19, 2010, has left an entire community wondering where the Consulate gets its information.

Business leaders in Puerto Penasco, known commonly as Rocky Point, met on Monday to discuss the backlash of calls and emails received as a result of the warning that specifically mentioned dangers on Highway 8, the road to this popular beach resort town.

According to the director of Mexico’s Federal Highway Patrol, no incidents like those discussed in the warning have occurred. The AFI, which is like the Federal Investigative Agency, has also denied any knowledge of problems along Highway 8. Local police chief Erick Landagaray expressed surprise that the Consulate would issue a warning without so much as a thread of truth to it, without first consulting with his office. The Attorneys General at the State as well as Federal level have also said there is no basis for the claims of violence on the road to Puerto Penasco.

Fausto Soto, Director of International Relations for the City of Puerto Penasco attended the meeting, where all agreed the highest priority should be in preparing travelers with the truth, regardless the economic effects on the city.

Nevertheless, according to the American business community, it seems that in this case the U.S. Consulate has violated their own policy not to rely solely on unsubstantiated rumors…and in this case, they got their facts very, very wrong, in the process harming an entire community, many of whom are Americans.

It would be na´ve to think that the timing of this warning was accidental, coming as it did right before one of the biggest weekends for this resort community. That negative reports hit the media harder right before Spring Break or other important holidays for travelers is nothing new. What is new, however, is the participation of the U.S. Consulate’s complicity in unnecessarily scaring the traveling public and causing harm to many American-owned businesses south of the border.

The hope in Puerto Penasco is that those who know and love Rocky Point won’t stay away or cancel their travels plans without first verifying the veracity of what they’ve heard, even if the rumors come with the stamp of the U.S. government.

Sounds like an awesome lunch Sean.

I decided to play reporter and inquire a bit about the travel advisory issued by the Nogales consulate I posted earlier in this thread. I finally got someone on the phone who was willing to talk to me. She refused to give her name but she acknowledged that the wording of their adivisory may have been confusing. I asked her flat out about the shootings. She said she did not have any reports of any shootings of americans on the highway to Rocky Point. She stated that the shootings mentioned were part of a general awareness of the dangers around the entire country. I asked her if that was the case why wouldn't they clarify the language and why would it be included in an advisory for a specific highway. She said that was the language they came up with that was least confusing. I asked her if they would issue a clarification since she admitted she has recieved many calls about this. She said no. I asked why and she said she wasn't answering any more of my questions. I asked her if she could tell me which cities in Mexico americans have been shot in during road side stops. She said Juarez. I then pressed about why the language wouldn't clarify that in an advisory regarding an entirely different part of Mexico. She said I can call the Tijuana office and talk to public relations and hung up on me.

Oh, you mean the time that Ivy and I spent most of our Coachella at the hospital in Palm Springs instead of seeing Portishead because I sprained my ankle skanking to Devotchka? I could probably post a novel about it... but it's too painful.

The best part was how upset all the people at the hospital were that we were missing Prince. The lady in the room across from me kept yelling out "Purple Rain! You're going to miss Purple Rain!" and tried to get the doctor to write me a note so they'd let us back in.

It was very much like getting my gall bladder out last year....like a year or two of ignoring pains and just trying to treat the symptoms. The pain goes away, and you think everything is awesome, but the gall bladder is still rotting. And then, "suddenly" you're in the hospital on the verge of death, and they are like "We need to get rid of this now." And then you spend a miserable couple of weeks in the hospital, but the pain's gone. After a few months, you go "Hey, I thought I needed that to live, but I guess I don't." At least, that's how I hope it turns out.

But it still feels weird sometimes. The place where my gall bladder was.

Conan is slotted at the Comedy tent on Friday 1 pm to 2:30 pm. This showing will be shown live also on video screens at the Lunar Stage. He will also play the Comedy tent on Saturday 1 pm to 2:30 pm.

If any one is looking for something to do tonight, there's a big group bike ride starting at 6 at Steele Indian School park. The route is about 9 miles, and ends on Roosevelt with drinks at The Lost Leaf or Carly's. About 70 people showed up last month, so I expect it will be about the same tonight. :)

I was at Carly's for about an hour this evening. Needed my requisite glass of Absinthe in the wake of a 50+-hour week at work. Plus I got a new cut of my film, which is always good to receive. Oh, and to answer amyzzz's question, I hate when I get my money on a Friday when I anticipate it on the following Tuesday. I can't get to work quickly enough to express my dismay to my employer when that happens.

For the record, I'm unimpressed with the Lost Leaf and have only gone in there as many times as I have because I've been stricken by herd mentality and been unassertive about directing the parties I'm with away from there.

It was like when you bite your tongue once and you seemingly can't avoid biting it again multiple more times the rest of that day. But it's not broken, just a bit of a gash. Mostly fine.

My friend used to be on that show. She was sick of playing the "blond role". She was replaced by either Alexis or Andrea (who can tell them apart.) The girl she originally replaced looked the same too.

Now Channel 12 on the other hand...I used to work for them (indirectly) and we think that they had a chart that covered every possible ethnic combination and that they based their hiring decisions on that. They replaced Mary Kim Titla (who was Native) with a Navajo friend of mine. My white male friend was working as an auxiliary reporter and got passed over 3 times for promotion until another white male left. They would not hire my blond friend despite having more experience...likely because Fay Fredricks already filled that slot. We joked that the news director probably had a spontaneous orgasm when he met Tram Mai, because he could check off 3 or 4 boxes. "Her name is TRAM MAI?!?" (spooge.)

I assume you're talking about TV news? I never watch that -- it took me two posts before I knew wtf Tom was talking about. I get my sparse news updates from radio only.

Well, there was a TV News ad on the previous page. And all of our references were to that. Soooooo...

But yeah, speaking from inside experience, local TV news is pretty worthless. Although, I do have one other friend in the business who is known for giving Arpaio a lot of shit...that's pretty cool.

My co-worker (Jewish) said NPR is anti-Israel.

I've noticed that a lot of times when anything critical or questioning is publicly said of Israel's sometimes questionable policies, it's labeled "anti-Israel" (I've had the same conversation with my boss, whose family lives there)... kind of seems like a cop-out. Jus sayin'.

But then, I'm more or less pro-Palestinian, so.

On the subject of NPR, I heard the most ridiculous thing this morning. They were talking about the importance of using sunblock and ways to get vitamin D - which, okay, I'm on board.

Then one of the commentators is like, "the sun is a carcinogen".

...

Also, the sky is falling.

Yes, and some people seem to use "anti-Israel" as a code word for "anti-Jewish". It shouldn't matter if everyone at NPR is Jewish, they could still be "anti-Israel". (Though, as a news organization, they shouldn't be anti-anything.)

that would work.

06-04-2010, 08:44 AM
The Main Ingredient is on 7th st., so it would make more sense, probably, if you drive from the Main Ingredient to The Burton Barr library on Central and McDowell, which has a LR stop, and park there.

Unless you want to walk a mile to get there. ;)

captncrzy
06-04-2010, 08:47 AM
Ok, I'm calling it. The Main Ingredient. I just read some reviews and now I'm dying to go there and get some of that mac n cheese and $2.50 happy hour beers. We'll figure out how to get to the artwalk from there. If we make it out.

chairmenmeow47
06-04-2010, 08:48 AM
i am definitely going to the artwalk so i can go to fuse afterwards.

actually, i'm kind of more interested in the artwalk than eating, so i'll probably just stop by.

it's a weekly at bar smith. my girlfriend is playing & i tend to know a lot of people who go. it's right off washington and 2nd street i think, next to ye old sky lounge *pours my 40 for the sky lounge*. i have yet to make an appearance and i think i'm going to tonight. it doesn't start until a bit later though.

i still wouldn't mind meeting you at that place, i just know i actually want to walk around the artwalk also, so i probably won't stay long anyways.

The Main Ingredient is kind of too far to walk and too close to make taking the LR worthwhile.
