    US ANARCHISM needs to get organized

    I recall during my college days a young Republican said to me quite earnestly, "The problem with you anarchists is you just can't get organized!" Since I was coming on to two tabs of good blotter, I fell over laughing. My laughing didn't seem to make him too happy but it did wonders for me.

    You misunderstood. My friend does not squat. He lives in this neighborhood and during a hike was just pointing out to me the many vacant buildings and the ones which were being squatted.

    Squatting in Los Angeles

    Oddly enough, I'm visiting friends in Pacific Palisades and my friend who lives here was pointing out all the vacant, newly built luxury houses sitting vacant. Apparently, they're having trouble selling/renting them. He mentioned that people were squatting several. Anyway, I'm assuming you know...

    Grapple?

    I just figured out the branding conundrum. The person who labeled said beverage was trying to be clever in a Madison Ave. kinda way. They conflated Grown Up with Apple and Grape to make Grapple. "The Grown Up Apple/Grape Drink!" ™

    the key to hydration

    I'm still fairly infuriated whenever I think about people taking handles off of water spigots to deny ANYONE access to water. That's like trying to deny someone access to oxygen. I think there's a name for that. Oh yeah, MURDER. [grumble-grumble. Fuckin' people]

    Worst bum feed you ever went to

    Ok, one more. Stranded in bumfuk Colorado in the 80s. Me and my road dawg, with $2 to our collective names. We're starving. The only thing within walking distance is a bakery "day old" store. It's the end of the day so the selection is sparse. End of the story, because of our limited finances...

    MREs are not too bad. Considering, when I was in the Army they were phasing out C-Rats (yeah, I'm that old) and I or someone else would occasionally draw a C-Rat pack with a WWII era can that was bulging. We'd open it to see what was inside and lawdy -- Anyway, I occasionally eat MREs when I...

    Worst bum feed you ever went to

    If Army feeds count, I once got a piece of mystery meat in the mess hall that didn't't even have 1/4 inch of edible non-gristle on it. Still, don't know what animal it was from or what part. Once, I was thrown in jail for fishing without a license in Montana. For breakfast, we were fed a stale...

    Mites! Aghhhh

    I got scabies once, back in the 80s, because I took a nap under a highway overpass late one night and apparently places, where birds roost, are a hot spot for picking up a case of those little buggers. Just keep diligently applying the lotion and they eventually go away. I think it took about a...

    As you transition to doing your art more and more for yourself and the need to express and less and less for others and your need (or desire) for them to approve (love) your art will only get better.

    How to get an mmj card?

    Back in the ancient 80s, I know we sometimes referred to pot as "MJ". Maybe that's what it is derived from. Slang is pretty liquid and takes on weird forms over time.

    What will autonomous or driverless cars mean for hitching?

    Yeah, I know there's "automated" and "self-driving", two different things. But it's hard enough to get people to pull over most of the time. Imagine in the case of an automated (driver letting car pilot) scenario, now the driver has to disengage automated and manually pull over. And like you...

    Soylent or similar meal/drink

    I've used Ketochow for PCT treks. I use it as a supplement breaking camp and setting up camp or if I start camp late, to avoid having to cook. It delivers a lot of calories for not much weight.
