Reminder about Saturday.. Say farewell to Scott aka [ profile] trckrfckr

Scott is moving back to Toronto on March 31st.  I realize this is a wide net I'm casting, but I want to make sure that friends who care about Scott are aware of his departing date in case they'd like to wish him farewell.  If you don't know Scott please disregard.

I plan to make sure he's at the Eagle Tavern SF on Saturday the 28th of March at around 9pm.  So if you'd like to come say "see ya later" in person this would be a perfect opportunity.  If you want to wish him well from afar he is of course on LJ as  [ profile] trckrfckr , and his email address is

Aim above morality!

Maude paraphrasing Thoreau:

"It's best not to be too moral. You cheat yourself
out of too much life. Aim above morality.
If you apply that to life, you're bound to live it fully."

Ruth Gordon, as Maude,
Harold and Maude

Off to hear Bud Cort speak tonight followed by a Harold and Maude screening at the Castro Theater.

Anyone looking for a great 1920's 1bd apartment in Oakland for only $1100 a month?

It's a great place in a fantastic location, only a block from the Grand Lake theater. Dog/Cat friendly, newly finished hardwood floors, excellent large windows, great light, top floor. 4 unit building. If interested.. let me know. I was going to take it but need to change my plans and have already put my deposit down.

Perseverance brings equality

This article brightened my day immensely.

I spent a good chunk of my morning depressed and in tears with my office door closed. 
I was feeling sorry for myself and for my friends. 

Fuck That!

I'm no longer sad.. I am energized.

Equality is a process! We must recognize progress and take the high road in our fight.  Be sad for a little while, but don't be defeated thinking it's over now. Pick yourselves up and fight the good fight. We owe ourselves this perseverance and we will find an end to the injustice of Prop 8's passing. We are equal citizens! I have great hope that others will realize this, but we must continue to let them know we will fight for our rights.  Equality is never free or easy, but equality is always worth fighting for.

Don't be silent, don't forget. Leverage the rights you have for the rights you desire and deserve!
This is another step on the long path to equality.. keep walking!
