This herbal bath is for cleansing one’s body/mind/spirit of inner and outer negativity or stagnant energy. It can be taken during the Full Moon or the waning phase of Grandmother Moon. Your intention, prayers and the consecration of your space in honor of the Guardians…
Native Americans have commented on the bitter irony of these plastic shamans profiting from the degrading, twisted versions of Native American rituals while many indigenous people still live below the poverty level. New Age interest in Native American cultures appears more concerned with exoticized images and romanticized rituals revolving around a distorted view of Native American spirituality than with the indigenous peoples themselves and the very real (and often ugly) socio-economic and political problems they face as colonized peoples.
Private prisons sue states for millions if they don’t stay full
State run prisons are no better. When they get too empty the unions representing guards start getting nervous, and with just a few phone calls, probation officers start kicking in doors and giving felons violations on bullshit like having an unauthorized savings account or “possession of a weapon” for having kitchen knives. I did time with men who got caught up in these round ups, their stories are always ignored by these pieces about “private” prisons. The next time someone talks to you about “prisons for profit” remind them that ALL prisons are for profit, and all of them need to be closed down.
What Up Hollywood: Tequila Mockingbird Interview
Not only is Tequila Mockingbird one of the busiest women in Hollywood, she is also one of the most creative, eclectic, and diverse. A singer, songwriter, music critic, poet, actress, entrepreneur, former model, you name it she’s done it. In fact, “Busy” may as well be her middle name.
She recently opened up the Punk Museum near downtown L.A., a colossal tribute to the music scene she has been intimately involved in since the late 1970s. According to Tequila, the motivation behind creating the museum was based upon a promise with former Germs vocalist, Darby Crash, “to keep punk rock alive,” an exchange they had just days before he died from a heroin overdose in December, 1980.
Never one to shy away from controversy and downright shaking things up, Tequila is in the process of writing an autobiography which, if she has the final say, will be titled ROCK AND ROLL NIGGER. By all indications it will be an excitingly salacious read, chock-full of true to life stories from the never ending stream of Tequila’s memories involving her wild child lifestyle in the Hollywood underground and beyond. And yes, Tequila admits even Robert Plant tried to hit on her during their 1971 tour in support of Led Zeppelin III, when she was just a sweet youth thing living in Cleveland.
What Up Hollywood recently got a chance to talk with Hollywood’s very own Punk Princess at the foot of Johnny Ramone’s memorial about her upcoming appearance in her third Batman flick and a whole lot more.
Statement of Solidarity with the Mi’kmaq Warriors
"The anti-fracking struggle currently being waged by the Mi’kmaq is occurring at an historically important time in Canada. It follows on the mass mobilization of Indigenous peoples across the country who took part in Idle No More rallies and “flashmobs,” etc. It is also occurring as thousands of Natives in ‘BC’ have expressed their opposition to oil and gas pipelines and tankers. And all this is occurring as Canada seeks to position itself as a new “petro-state” based on the extraction of gas and oil, especially from the Tar Sands in northern Alberta. In this context, the struggle of the Mi’kmaq is of critical importance."

Race Relations in America
- White Person: Smacks person of color in the face
- Person of color: That really hurt. Please don't do it again.
- White Person: Wow you are really over reacting. I barely even touched you. Actually I only brushed past your face. No, on second thought I wasn't even there when it happened so I don't know why you're complaining to me.
- Person of color: What are you talking about, I have the bruises to prove it and that bystander caught you on camera.
- White Person: That was the past. It's really insensitive that you would bring up my previous actions. You are being rude. Actually scratch that. You are being aggressive. No, no, no, on second thought you are being abusive. That really hurt. Please don't do that again.
