Had really nice guitar
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 3:12pm brainiac:

Hey all, I gotta tell you about this wild dream I had last night… I was across the table from this woman I didn’t know, but who seemed really smart and cool. She was wearing a WFMU “Consistently Inconsistent” shirt and rolling a 40-sided die that CONSISTENTLY came up on the NUMBER 5. Like something out of a David Lynch film, you know? And it looked just…like…THIS…
imgur.com...
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 3:13pm brainiac:

So hypnotic, right? Anyway, the dream continued but the scene changed to this same woman in a band, and the band’s music was available on Bandcamp: creekandkills.bandcamp.com

It was then revealed to me that all the proceeds from sales in June went to two worthy causes. But here’s where it gets weird: TODAY—JUNE 5TH—Bandcamp waives their fee, so all the money is straight up DONATION to these causes!
It all seemed so real!
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 3:13pm brainiac:

And then I woke up.

brainiac ... brother.

We are both in tears here. This is going to be a long show.

Thanks, friend!

That's my partner Kate's band. And today is our twenty-first anniversary. And we have spent all day drawing attention to the causes that she and the band are supporting with the sales for this month.

And, you know, just being absolutely raw.

So, so glad to have a place like this and to be a part of the WFMU community.

Oh, man, I was hoping to make it to the first mic break before crying.

All sympathies, Rob Kopp.

It's understandable to "flinch". The key is to realize you had no reason to have done so, and let your Reason take control.

Remember that there is a difference between "white guilt" and acknowledging that you (and I) have NOT been doing what we HAVE to for everyone who lives in a separate reality that is engineered to make sure they never have the same advantages as we do, simply by virtue of the family they were born into. Guilt does nothing. Action.

Do your thing, Sheila. The way you use your platform has been inspiring to me and, I'd guess, to other DJ's- not just the idea that we can use our platform to speak out if we want, but more importantly that we can do it and still have it be good radio.
  3:51pm P-90:

Also don’t forget: Martin Luther King made some of the most on point comments, cleanly and concisely characterizing the “sincere, well-meaning white people” problem.

In NL there are a lot of protest demonstrations as well. But fortunately we have an experienced prime minister (Mark Rutte) who's saying very wise words these days. That really helps a lot
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 3:55pm Handy Haversack:

Well said, Matt Fiveash. This is great radio. And Todd last week, efd, you, so many DJs -- the radio is even better when invested with purpose and passion. It's so, so crucially uplifting when things seem so bleak and brutal and fighting seems so hard.

So: thanks. To you and Sheila and Ken and ALL of you.

Jeez, it's gonna be one of those kinds of days. If I keep thanking you all, just ignore me. We're a little raw over here!

  4:02pm WM:

It's almost impossible to respond meaningfully to your comments within the limited confines of the message board, but I think there are two further questions you should ask: 1) do you believe in collective guilt (all Germans are responsible for Hitler, all Russians are responsible for Stalin, etc.)? 2) is race real, meaning is the very process of racial classification rational and logical? (The best book I know on this subject is The Racialization of America by Yehudi Webster.) P.S I love your show and admire your courage.

Also, about 15 years ago I was in a bagel place near the Barclays Center where the core Brooklyn protests happen.

I’m sitting there, getting my food when this social worker and a very big (as in tall and husky) black man walk in. And she’s clearly explaining to him all of the food he can get there. She points out the knishes and he just cuts her off and says enthusiastically, “Jewish food! I love Jewish food!”

Conflict is a major source of collective struggle. Quite obviously. So with that context, stop naming "things" with and representing "culture" through the public dime!
Should public money be used to celebrate specific political figures or historical perspectives? NO!
Should public money be used on facilities or other objects named for select political ideologies? NO!
Conflict is a major source of collective struggle! Yet, egoistic group-think insists on shooting us all in the foot. In the name of posterity. In the name of division.
