ethereal specter,

haunted by the past, ghosted

but not forgotten

 

trunk or treat is not

the same, Halloween has grown

too tame.  mischief brews

2017 – New Year, New Businesses

I am trying to figure out my post baby plan, but right now that seems to include a revamping of our first business, Karnage Creations LLC. I am a licensed contractor, and the work we like to do is restoring historic windows. We prefer to do larger jobs, more along the lines of being subcontracted in a home renovation project than handman odd jobs. We also do a variety of carpentry, painting, etc. Find out more about Karnage Creations LLC here: Richmond Window Repair

The other business David and I are trying to get off the ground is the Heathen Homestead. This is our farming, herbal medicine, crafting, furniture making enterprise. Our website and etsy are live, and our journey is just beginning. Keep tabs on that project here: The Heathen Homestead

The South is Still Rising: Contemporary Radical and Anarchist Movements in Richmond, Virginia from 1994-2004 by Mo Karnage

The South is Still Rising explores the little known story of radical organizing in Richmond, Virginia in terms that Mo’s mom can understand. This story is contextualized in both within the history of Richmond and within the history of radical activism on a national and global scale.

The South is Still Rising reveals the things going on in the old capital of the Confederacy that are not played up in the media, and that many folks don’t get a chance to find out about. This is your window into a better understanding of what is actually going on in the South.

A new type of Southern Pride. A history that includes the resistance to racism, sexism, capitalism, and more!

Welp, They Fenced Off Monroe Park – Here is your background a little too late

They finally fenced off Monroe Park, much to the suprise of people who didn’t follow the issue from 2010-2014. I am honestly so pissed and frustrated and busy I can’t write a big ol opinion piece on this at this time. Instead, allow me to suggest that folks read the DOZENS of opinion pieces and articles that were written on this issue over the 4 years we fought tooth and nail against this crappy, gentrifying, neoliberal nonsense plan.

Budget Bozos

City of Richmond’s budget is an ongoing soap opera of whodunits and epic missteps. It would be hilarious if it was just a TV show with some crack pot protagonists. Unfortunately, the crack pots are the politicians and the results of budget failures are very real. It ends up being less than funny for frustrated tax payers.

The latest boondoggle for Richmond is the proposed Maggie Walker statue and plaza. Originally intended to be funded with private money, now the Planning Commission has overlooked that 2010 resolution and are estimating a combined cost of $900,000 for the statue and plaza. Some, including members of the Public Arts Commission ( http://rvamag.com/articles/full/26318/public-arts-commission-members-protest-approval-of-maggie-walker-statue )    see this as a last gasp from Mayor Jones to resurrect his reputation. Others just see this as a continuation of luxury spending while basic services try to go down the drain, but can’t because the sewer gutters are blocked and flooding the streets. (more…)
