During WWII, with asian hemp suppliers in the hands of the Japanese, the USDA asked America's farmers to grow 50,000 acres of hemp, aka "Marihuana". Here's the video they produced to edjucate those farmers.

Poetry That anger will
that no thought
comes and
sputtering engine
no mind
no hope
but
FIRES BURN
White eyed explainations
another fist
a dieing palm
in red light
darkness.
Trampled grasses
and seething waterfronts
no burn. No trampled grasses,
Quiet -- save for the
clanging of midnight machines
black metal insects
chomp chomp chomp
the fertile fields
wrapped in soft blue
wrapped in dark black
wrapped in questionmark
infinity

Buffalo I posted the "Petition to Remove Bush and Cheney from Office" on the Colbert Report politcal messageboard, hoping to have a discussion about the text of the document before posting it as a petition, boy I got more than I expected.

One of the regulars there, who goes by the handle SoCal, took imediate and childish issue with the very idea of an "online petition" affecting change.

What follows is an all out, on going, and at times very heavy debate about the future of resistance in America, the tactics of childish name calling, the state of our governmental environment, pro-hope, anti-hope, real good old fashion out and out type debate. And I'm happy to be a part of it.

I hope you'll check it out, and contribute if you feel inclined. Join in here:

General News It's been in the works for a long time now.
Asked for. Yearned for. Thought of. Mentioned. Whispered.

And now, because you asked for it - The Buffalo Readings will be doing a regular monthly readings series all summer long, not just in the heart of Manhattan, not just in the East Village itself, but at the one of the epicenters of poetry: the world famous Bowery Poetry Club! Yes, they've wanted us there for ages now & we've always wanted to be there as regulars. Mutual admiration at it's finest! So at long last the i's are dotted and the t's are crossed: the Second Monday of June, July & August will find us hosting the nastiest, grittiest, most well organized chaotic open mic event you can think of! Buffalo style poetry, music, special guests, movies, an open mike & a full fledge functioning bar. An hour and a half of poetic, artistic ecstasy.

6pm - 7:30pm, Monday June 11th, July 9th & August 13th.
Admission will be Free to all!

Buffalo ###

Letter from the American People asking for the Impeachment of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney

###

When in the Course of American History, it becomes clear that the powers of the few have once again become out of balance with the checks meant to right them, it is the duty of the citizens of The United States of America to remind those in power of their equal station with the people, and that it is the founding principle of this Nation, that we all must consent to the practice of the powers handed down to them by her people, or that power shall be taken away. It is with this then that we remind the current administration of its long list of abuses, and demand that it turns over its power immediately to the people.

Buffalo That The Bush Administration, and it's racist, bloody politics, and cohorts, et al.
Along with the FOX News Corp Branch of the Government
are in a bubble being blown,
and the whole of America
is turning its
back on their parrot-like
compatriarts
FEAR mongering
lunitards. Guliani?
Was Hitler
when he was
just the mayor of NEw yOrk
To seat him at the head of
the largest most
boisterous assemlege of
fascists since since
1938
is a direct afront to
the ideals
we
the inheritors of this
mostly free democracy
come to appreciate as
the true, and better
dream of the
promise of American Society

But Facists may be too strong a word
Evil People at the Top
folleyed by - Fearful people at the bottom.
Evil can be infectious,
but Fear is usually first
so
NO FEAR!
-
I proclaim upon the land
Fear causes you to give up on
driving this continent
but no the land
this earth
but not the ground
or wind or sky
The people
The laws
The way we live our lives
Let no prior guilt
commit you
to not doing future good
NO FEAR
Your moment is pure and unmuddled by history
live truly live
and your world will correct itself

Poetry In the past week, I've encountered a lot of great poetry rearing its head around the internets. Penn State has unleashed a huge database similar to Ubuweb's Giorno Poetry Systems audio conservatory project, PennSound In both places you can find loads of free poetic audio ranging from poetry to lectures and musical compositions.

General News

The Buffalo have established an internet radio feed! KBUF The BUF is for BUFFALO! [moose.]

Last week saw the establishment of Buffalo Readings as a definite threat in SecondLife. [See SecondLife article] As a consequence of this, we had to figure out how to stream a live audio feed into the virtual neither-realm. Seven cartons of cigarettes and a busted leg later, we have, the Buffalo Radio Station!

As of now, we'll be playing the recording of last week's reading in heavy rotation (with some extras thrown in - nudge nudge). It went superific. It's 2hours, 18 minutes long, with David Acevedo, Noah Levin, Brian Kenny, and myself, plus a trouble ridden call in piece by The Honorable James Honzik. Listen in, cause you can't hear it anywhere else. Oh and sorry about all the SL crashes we caused. I'm getting that figured out.

Check back here often, cause there's gonna be a whole lot of Buffalo Broadcasts announced in the next few weeks. Live events, open mics. plain old DJin, good stuff. And don't forget that you can join us and other Buffalo live in the virtual SecondLife Buffalo Hang, now open for business, cause life is so much better, together.

Click the link below, or copy and paste into the player of your choice.
NOTE: The stream url has changed! Our new stream host (egihosting.com) doesn't crash SecondLife.

And please let us know if the broadcast is giving you trouble.
