Billy Bob Gets His Preach On

Does the whole right wing/left wing argument leave you asking, "what about the God wing"? Stop by the Hour of Bein' Good at 6pm SLT on Monday's at the Democrat Donkey Cafe for an hour of no-nonsense sense instead of the pro-nonsense nonsense that everybody else gonna give you. You're gonna hear the truth straight from God's mouth. And lest you think I'm gonna judge you, remember that only God can judge you - I'm just here to tell you what he's gonna say.
God is Love!

Social inJustice Discussion--Taking it up the Ass or the Art of Apathy
As consumers, are we taking too much from corporations or politicians?  Why is it that people are not rioting in the streets over issues related to the economy and policy making?  Why exactly do the budget cuts we are seeing continue to reflect classism and attack those who can least protect themselves?  Why do we allow this?

Zath's Album Cafe - The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society

In late 1968, while the rest of the rock world was still trying to find a way to bottle and mass-market the psychedelic success of Sgt. Pepper, the Kinks met modest success with the gently nostalgic The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, a ironic paean to a lost, pastoral Britain that may never have truly existed.  But in time, it would become one of the great cult classics of the Kinks' long career.  After the album, DJ Zathras spins an eclectic mix with a heavy dose of classic 60s, both famous and obscure.

The night becomes eKlipetic
Klipe Wirefly spins eclectic soul-grabbing fun.

Social inJustice Discussion--GLBT/LGBT Issues on SL
What are the issues on Second Life that effect the gay community?   Does second life provide a backdrop for increased tolerance or does Second Life mask homophobia with sexual undertones?  An example of this would be that it is OK for lesbians to get together on SL for a sexual relationship but perhaps they are not taken seriously as a hetro couple.

7 pm

Album Cafe - The Original Songs Behind The Cadillac Records Soundtrack

7:00 pm
Dancing Liberally - Taking a stand
Sixty-Eight years ago this week, Dutch truck drivers, dock and metal workers, civil servants and factory employees — Christians, Liberals, Social Democrats and Communists--brought commerce in the city of Amsterdam to a halt when they engaged in a general strike protesting their Nazi occupiers treatment of Jews. Two days later the strike was called off: nine people were dead, 50 injured and another 200 arrested, some of whom were to die in the concentration camps. Think about that the next time you make an excuse for shopping at Wal-Mart or stay silent as co-workers or family make racist, sexist or homophobic remarks.
This week we'll discuss the courage of those brave Dutch strikers and the courage we need to find within ourselves  as we dance to the music of DJ Rocky. Lindens awarded to those in out fits that best evoke the spirit of the strikers and those who take a stand against oppression anywhere.
