This is SO not correct - Steve Cannon is an EV gem and so is A Gathering of the Tribes. NOT EVERYTHING in the EV has to ALWAYS be about $ or we will have no EV left. And who kicks out a blind man who has been paying his rent AND providing a refuge for impoverished poets in the EV? Sheesh, I'm disgusted. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03...region/07tribes.html

that is just disgusting. so upsetting to hear about. I hope he finds a buyer who will let him stay. On this same topic, the rent laws which protect tenants from being evicted in situations like this expire on June 15th. It's critical that they are renewed and strengthened to prevent more tenenats from this kind of situation.

Well, Canon has survived a few of these situations at Tribes. The situation it is in now leaves a lot of interpretive options legally because the landlady did accept his recent rent payments, it could be interpreted as a 'constructive' contract ( in legal jargon - essentially standing as a contract in every sense except for not actually existing in writing ). But I'm not a real estate court judge so who knows. I doubt anyone or group is going to come up with nearly 3 million during this time...

Lil, if you have info going forward on any rent law actions or demos either online or RW please post them in this forum. Thanks.

This is a real East Village story. Yesterday my wife sent me out to get... No, not milk. Not bread or eggs. She said, "Go to Enchantments and get me some High John The Conqueror root". I went but they were closed. But being the East Village there was ANOTHER herb/magic store a few doors down. I went in and asked the girl for the root. She said that they were out and then I asked what it was for. She said, "Your wife obviously needs it for a spell". "A spell?" I asked, "What kind of spell?"...

Was that at Flowerpower? Those girls are witches. You're lucky you got out of there with your own balls intact. From Wikipedia: The plant is known in some areas as bindweed or jalap root. It has a pleasant, earthy odour, but it is a strong laxative if taken internally. It is not used for this purpose in folk magic; it is instead used as one of the parts of a mojo bag. It is typically used in sexual spells of various sorts and it is also considered lucky for gambling. -So Daddy, Empress is...

Poetry reading at ABC NO RIO 1989 Early February. 12 degrees outside A bulldozer working next door ‘accidentally’ knocks half the East wall off. There is no heat to begin with.. Among the five people there I remember the monumental J.D. Rage and Eduardo Arrocha the last tattooed man at the Coney Island Freak Show before it closed. Snow was falling in the room. I remember J.D. read this poem where she said something bad about God and right then there was a big roll of thunder outside that...

That was it Bobby. And there were these other few extremeists around that would inspire and encourage you too. Plus hardly any touristas or people just looking for lighthearted entertainment would ever venture in to the zona because it had been abandoned by the cops, was overwhelmed with junky/dealer feeding frenzies in the middle of the street, and there was just this general harshness the beauty of which you kinda had to earn the right to revel in and savour. And the poetry was so whack,...

It's kind of become like that hasn't it. But I kind of like to think of it as the Lower East Side blogging itself through me. One needs to think in terms of how much mayhem and jubilance has been endured. How vividly beautiful are the colors of rat entrails or sharp morning sunlight on the nearly naked bodies of a garden parade. What kind of sublime insanitywisdom flows off the tongue of a delirious neighbor as he collapses in a reverie imposed by HIV cocktails, insulin injections, 65 years...

In Loisaida there is a path that may be found by the voice upon which spoken words earn a kind of everlasting permanence for the speaker whose immortality becomes part of the continuity of la Raza. Maybe this is not for you to understand in a human way.

The following indicate a delusion: 1. The person expresses an idea or belief with unusual persistence or force. 2. That idea appears to exert an undue influence on his or her life, and the way of life is often altered to an inexplicable extent. 3. The individual tends to be humorless and oversensitive, especially about the belief. 4. An attempt to contradict the belief is likely to arouse an inappropriately strong emotional reaction, often with irritability and hostility. 5. The person is...

So, SEVEN, One could imply that you think La Raza is: 1. The person expresses an idea or belief with unusual persistence or force. 2. That idea appears to exert an undue influence on his or her life, and the way of life is often altered to an inexplicable extent. 3. The individual tends to be humorless and oversensitive, especially about the belief. 4.

This is from items on the community board agenda: WHEREAS, formerly there were PEP, NYPD, and sometimes DEP monitoring, there currently is no enforcement or monitoring; and WHEREAS, people in this area suffer from abnormal levels of noise pollution every weekend; The no monitoring claim is just a flat out wild lie. Every single event there has lots of cops in attendance ALWAYS. It is really laughable someone could assert there is no monitoring. And, what the fuck is "abnormal levels of noise...
