Monday, Nov. 17

7:00 pm
Manufactured Consent (discussion)
Is what we want as far as good and services simply a product of a consumer driven economy and not actually what we want.  


6 pm
Zath's Album Cafe - Joe Jackson, Look Sharp!
British pop chameleon Joe Jackson's 1979 debut album, Look Sharp!, may quite rightfully be #22 on Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Album Covers of All Time, but that's nothing compared to what was inside the sleeve.  So come do the Instant Mash at the Cafe Wellstone as DJ Zathras spins Jackson's deceptively simple New Wave groove.  The Second British Invasion was seldom more danceable.



7 pm
DJ Rocky and All-Wequest Wednesday!

7 pm DJ Rocky and All-Wequest Wednesday!   Since Wednesday is the new Saturday for DJ Rocky, he's going to spin the tunes until he drops.  Russell's got another long standing engagement at 6 pm....The Titanic!....but we expect him back next week

7:00 pm
Two-Dimensional Poverty (Discussion)
What is our image of poverty at home and abroad and how does that effect how we feel about it.  Does it make us seek solutions or feel helpless?
Social Injustice

Thursday, Nov. 20

7 pm
Fortress-warming Party at the Fortress of Pinkitude (Finally!)
Serenity, S.P.T., and His Royal Pinkness Randall invite you to dance on their lawn amidst flowers and trees to celebrate their little piece of paradise. The event will double as a memorial service for one of our most beloved SL friends, our friend Ruth! There will be game(s), and DJ Serenity will spin the zeros and ones.

11 pm
Album Cafe - A Doors Double Header (The Doors & LA Woman)
Every Thursday a Wellstoner shares one of her or his favorite albums. This week, I'm hosting two albums by The Doors, LA Woman and The Doors.

If you'd like to host one of these for your favorite album (at the Cafe), let me know.
Cafe Wellstone

2:00 pm
Spartan-Style Wrestling with Ron Skytower
In an effort to treat Ron Skytower and the SL Republicans with all the seriousness they deserve, I've  challenged Skytower  to allow me to honor him as only one cultural warrior may honor another cultural warrior. That is to say, wrestling in the manner of the ancient warriors of Sparta, naked and oiled. Yes, we shall grapple, oiled flesh meeting oiled flesh, until one of us achieves victory by driving his hard spear of manhood deep into the other's dark cave of shame. And we will discuss politics and raise money for Books for Soldiers (this event is not endorsed by Books for Soldiers) while we are at it.
I'll also be DJing and playing the best of Barry White to put us all in that cultural warrior mood.

7:00 pm
Dancing Liberally - War On Christmas
It's that time of year again. I've been receiving War Against christmas alerts since before Halloween. It's a shame. The War on Christmas starts earlier and earlier every year. Let's mark the occasion by dressing up in our best holiday gear (any holiday), discussing the day's events,  and dancing to the best tunes DJs Jane and Rocky have to offer. Lindens awarded for best outfits.

8am
Change (discussion)
What the hell are you doing for change other then buying free trade coffee!

2pm
Author Alicia Morgan at Jackson Street Books
Wellstoner Idella Quandry (Alicia Morgan) reads and discusses The Price of Right(Sterling & Ross, $14.95, $4.00 shipping) at Jackson Street Books. If you'd like a signed copy contact info@jacksonst-books.com, and we'll make the arrangements.
Jackson Street Books

7:00 pm
Pink Saturday 2: Code Pinkified!
DJ Serenity will be doing the honours at the Yak since Rocky can't stay awake past 9 pm.  Dick Cheney is pink with chagrin that his hunting outift is camo.
The Lonely Yak Roadhouse

Sunday, Nov.23

6am
SECRETS OF SL ACTIVISM - FREE Teach-In Course, now listed as: NCI: EVENT ORGANISING
Join us for 1 hour each week to learn new SL organizing skills to promote more SL activism

NCI

2:00 pm
THE RINGS: AWESOME SL SHOW
Then DISCUSSION of the Show, World Problems, and Solutions. This will be a facilitated discussion and we will publish an abstract of the solutions that we envision! YOUR CONSENT TO BE QUOTED IS REQUIRED.

5:30
Groovin' on a Sunday Afternoon!
With the unfortunate and untimely hiatus forced upon the Bluefooted Booby Bar, those left without a place to shake their groove thangs and get down with their bad selves are welcome to dance at the Red Zeppelin starting from about 5:30 until movie time. Given the nature of this week's movie, I think an office/media theme might be appropriate or perhaps - in memory of the Booby - your favorite comemmorative beachwear. RevPaperboy Boozehound will be bouncing the bytes for your grooving pleasure.

7:30pm
Movies at the Red Zeppelin
This Sunday the glorious People's Marxist Lennonist Cinema Project presents an investigative report on the decadent lifestyles of the capitalist media: "His girl, friday" starring Carey Grant and Rosalind Russell. Also assorted shorts
