    Let's talk accordion

    Does anyone play? How did you learn? What kind of music do you play? If you travel with it, how on earth do you do it? As for me, I picked it up after playing klezmer and 'folk punk' (whatever that means) on strings for a couple years, and by imitating someone else who's also self-taught and...

    on open/closed relationships

    what do you think of this? i have often recommend this to people who ask me about non-monogamy because it comes closer than anything else i've read to reflecting my own opinions on the subject. don't worry about the political parts, that's not really the point...

    what's with all these right-wing anarchists?

    i used to know some left-anarchists who thought they could dialogue with tea party/anarcho-capitalist/free state/etc types in such a way to draw them further into anti-authoritarianism as opposed to mere anti-statism. as much as i think a lot of the things that a lot of left anarchists are about...

    last.fm is an awesome site.

    live for free and garden in rural western new england

    i'm a little hesitant to post this, since i feel like my constraints on this might be sort of narrow, but i think this could potentially be a really good opportunity for someone (or a couple people) on here, and could possibly be beneficial to myself and the other residents on the property as...

    dumb traveler names

    inspired by widerstand's offhand remark in another thread... i know i've heard so many over the years, but i can't remember that many, probably because they the people who used them were so stupid they weren't worth remembering, and also because it was years ago mostly. but nevertheless i...
