    the earthquake puts everything into perspective…i cant begin to imagine how life must be down there. violence is inevitable, who wouldn’t kill if that was the only way to get your kid water, food? at least it seems that the US is doing all we can.

  2. KWL Says:

    have there been reports of violence fat b? I have seen more about collectivist organizing on the grassroots level, i.e., families, neighborhoods, friends organizing out of necessity to get the things they need for survival (same things happened post Katrina, often misunderstood to be ‘looting’). Then again I tend to try very hard to ignore most news media, I’m getting most of my info through list-servs & whatnot.

  3. Robear Says:

    thx. for the link, KWL. In the book ‘Collapse’, Jared Diamond writes a pretty detailed chapter re: Haiti and the Dominican Republic

    The odds are stacked against them, like a casino.

  4. KWL Says:

    haven’t read that, Robear. Diamond tends to naturalize inequality (i.e. certain people are poor because of nature or geography, sorry, nothing we can do!), but he at least means well, and often he *does* do a good job of laying out why the odds are in some people’s favor & not others, as you say…

    Certainly a rough situation… my hope is always that tragic events like these will expose the social and political and economic relationships that bind us to Haiti (and not just us, or Haiti, but the globe really), in hopes that we might begin to change them…

    Aaaaand I’m done on that.

  5. MisterChristian Says:

    has anyone written up Miner yet? This one is a verbal but the rest will count against the three strikes

  6. Robear Says:

    kwl, the book, ‘Collapse’ talks about the colonialism, intervention and sanctions that add to the geographic quagmire.
    His writing is Sahara Desert dry, so I don’t blame anyone for not reading his stuff.

  7. halcyon Says:

    Robear….Colorado has been Cooooold and dry. No snow in weeks. Yesterday was the warmest day we had in 2-3 weeks. It was 35 degrees! This am is cold and overcast. Was going to go snowshoeing but the trails are packed down so well you do not need to bring snowshoes.

    @ KWL & Robear

    Collapse, and Guns Germs and Steel are great reads. Informative, and thought provoking.

  8. jdub Says:

    Two natural disasters in the last 5 years have wiped out almost 400,000 people. That is something that needs to be addressed. Instead if spending billions upon billions of dollars fighting a confusing war we could’ve done a lot of good for places that don’t have oil as well.

  9. Robear Says:

    halcy, no snow in the mts. here, either. Our rivers and streams need winter snowpack to survive. Not looking good, so far. Of course, the winter veggies are thriving.

    ‘Guns, Germs, Steel’ is on my books to read list. It literally took me a couple years to get through ‘Collapse’. His writing style is just painfully slow. Informative, interesting, but cotton mouth dry.

  10. jdub Says:

    Are you in boulder halcyon? My sister resides there

  11. Wilson8or Says:

    The Ghost from IT was insane. Definitely a had to be there moment. I’ve NEVER seen such a glowstick war. Actually listening to that Ghost, one probably doesn’t understand it. The band was literally playing the glowsticks!

  12. halcyon Says:

    jdub… I am in Eagle (small mtn town) which is in between Vail and Glenwood Springs.

  13. jdub Says:

    IT had some incredible moments, ghost, waves, 46 days, tower jam. What else am I missing

  14. Wilson8or Says:

    Dog Log as an encore was pretty bad ass! I also liked the Rock & Roll/7 below/bug set that preceded it

  15. Robear Says:

    Wilson8or, one only had to be there to see the glowstick war, which Mitch claims can be found on Youtube.

    The music holds up beyond belief on listen back.

    halcyon, I talked to a guy in Denver on my way home from New Year’s. He’s into the winter sports, and said it’s been BLEAK this year. Drat, I was getting hyped up for a visit!

  16. jdub Says:

    Hal, do you snowboard, ski, or both. I spent a large portion of time skiing the icy mountains of Maine, even the powder days were icy as the wind would often blow it away on the top and open areas

  17. Robear Says:

    jdub, the ‘Ya Mar’ from set I, night I is pretty redic.

    ‘Birds’ was rockin’. ‘Disease’ went big. Insane open ended ‘Chalkdust’. All the round room stuff was hot.

  18. jdub Says:

    A week before Christmas we had 2 feet of the most beautiful powder I have seen the northeast. Unfortunately it was all south of Mass. Oh well

  19. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    no apologies needed, Miner! I think we can all agree to give you a pass once in a while… after all, we’re here because of what you started.

    after the fantastic posting over the course of the last few days (well, months, actually), I’d say we all could use this long weekend. Not that it will stop any of us from continuing the conversation.

  20. KWL Says:

    @Robear, JD talks about colonialism (etc) in Guns also, but tends to explain it away: for ex, Europeans colonized Africans, & not the other way around, because Europe had geographical advantages that made it inevitable–that kind of logic is questionable in my book… He caught a lot of criticism for it, though, so he may have improved on that reasoning in Collapse

  21. jdub Says:

    Unfortunately the group I was with at IT was more into partying than Phish, killing my buzz and momentum many times throughout the weekend. Like not going in for set 3 night one because they were too tired. Nice thing about BB is I know I can find like minded heads to let lose at a show with.

  22. fat bastard Says:

    just got 4 tickets to TAB chicago…relatively pain free but i still hate ticket bastard…no relation to FB

  23. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    surprised my wife with TAB Boston tickets over dinner last night (I got them pre-order but held out until now). It’ll be a nice way to celebrate her new job which starts the following Monday. Is it bad that I’m looking forward to the fact that my wife will have a DEA prescribing license?

    I’m looking for a pair of TAB tix for the HOB for some friends if anyone has any extras or leads on them. b_crossen at hotmail if anybody does. Thanks in advance!

  24. Mr. Palmer Says:

    I say Fox takes the $100 million they were going to pay Simon Cowell to do American Idol and send it to Haiti. Everyone wins

  25. Wilson8or Says:

    Thanks for the heads up on the youtube video. I Don’t utilize that enough! It’s always surprising to see what shows pop up there
