2007-09-10 23:30:26   hello jim. thank you for letting me know about the time. i'm pretty sure the Feminist Forum's e-mail said 2 PM...so they must be watching it 12 hours after the game??? i unfortunately already deleted the e-mail so i can't go and check. but now that i know it's gonna happen in a couple of hours i'm gonna go head to a friend's house to try and catch it now. thanks again for the correction! —JessicaRockwell

2007-11-14 08:45:51   To avoid being a hater, I left out the part about the people not smelling very good at WEF. Don't you get the feeling that many of vendors are "hippies" because that's their market? —JimEvans


2007-11-14 08:54:44   Actually, I found it an amusing point to make. I have no idea what the intent of it was, but fits the light surface contradiction qualification for humor. And yes, I just phrased it that way. In other words: "It's funny. Laugh." http://cheshirehall.net/link/ws/wink.pngJabberWokky


2007-11-14 10:15:16   I'm glad WEF gets no university money - I agree with you. It's not comparable to the magnitude of picnic day by nearly any means, no matter how much people wish it was or feel more deeply connected to it or are hippies <.< Tons of vendors selling overpriced junk, big whoop. And the part about peoples smells, LOL! —EdWins


2007-11-14 14:27:56   Way to base your opinions on vague feelings and not on actual experience. I know several vendors and have talked with many more, none of whom seemed in "it" for the money (it being wildlife conservation, anarchism, weird bikes, anti-war etc. etc.). There are so many informational and educational booths and free activities at WEF. One year I showed kids how to do political spraypaint stencils in the Art and Revolution space. Maybe that's the smell you were refering to. Sorry about that, next time I'll use a spray box. I like some of the music at Picnic Day and I like some of the music at WEF so I go to both. I still think you're hating without actually knowing, which makes me sad because WEF tries to be such a positive, non comercial, non corporate, zero waste, FREE event. —PxlAted


As far as "actually knowing", I have been to or around (I work on campus) WEF 5 to 7 times and Picnic Day as many. You right I don't know the vendors. But, how is someone selling crazy hats or didjeridus advancing environmental causes? I wasn't knocking informational or educational booths, but you can't move around the Quad during WEF because it is packed with vendors. It's unpleasant. —JimEvans

2007-12-13 20:49:00   Depends on if you're going by folk taxonomy or scientific... that's a horrible and viciously debated split. You should see the rabid arguments among rodent breeders. Next thing you know people will be saying that deer mice aren't mice. ;) Ah, peros, how seldom people defend your right to distinct classification, while the lago question gets all the spotlight. —JabberWokky


2008-04-01 01:42:26   haha, we're competing for the revert —BrentLaabs


2008-04-01 03:03:14   Thanks for the cleanup. —JabberWokky
