PERMANENT BOOK STACK: The Bebelplatz is best known as the site of the book burning ceremony held on May 10, 1933 by members of the S.A. ("brownshirts") and Nazi youth groups, on the instigation of the Propaganda Minister, Joseph Goebbels. The Nazis burned around 20,000 books, including works by Thomas Mann, Erich Maria Remarque, Heinrich Heine, Karl Marx and many other authors. Today a glass plate set into the Bebelplatz, giving a view of empty bookcases, commemorates this event. Students at Humboldt University hold a book sale in the square every year on that day.

STREETS IS TALKIN'
hey, you gotta start somewhere. seriously, fuck people with their redundant subject matter. oh yeah, bloody pussies and adolescent boobies, stoner junkies, and long haireds with cool clothes. just let me watch some weirdo bust a bunch of dirty birds eating hamburger buns. dude why is the lens constantly readjusting so loudly sooo good??
Cincinnati Freedom (born c.1995–December 29, 2008), also known as Charlene Mooken, was a 1,050-pound Charolais cow living in the Watkins Glen Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen, New York, who is particularly popular with animal rights activists and animal lovers.
Cinci's rise to stardom began on February 15, 2002, when she leapt over a six-foot fence at Ken Meyers Meats, an Ohio slaughterhouse, and escaped. After eluding the traps and tranquilizer darts of SPCA officials and police officers for 11 days, she was finally captured just after midnight on February 26 in Clifton, Cincinnati, Ohio.
Finding a permanent home for her was a source of much debate, as most considered her no longer eligible for slaughter. The Cincinnati Zoo declined to house her, citing health concerns and the possibility that she could not be safely contained. Jan Malley, a Northern Kentucky woman with a 12-acre (49,000 m2) farm, was also considered as a possibility. In late March, however, artist Peter Max offered $180,000 worth of paintings to the SPCA for use at their next auction. In return, he took custody of the cow, whom he named to commemorate not only her dramatic pursuit of liberty, but the city into which she escaped.
Cinci Freedom received the key to Cincinnati, but didn't wear it during the Cincinnati Reds Findlay Market Opening Day Parade on April 1, 2002, as planned, because she was judged too jumpy and nervous to participate.
She was reported to be doing well in the sanctuary and had apparently made a number of friends, including Queenie, who escaped from a slaughterhouse in Queens, New York.
Sadly, most likely due to the high levels of growth hormones that were forced upon her, while she was being raised for slaughter, Cinci developed spinal cancer in 2008. This is an incurable and untreatable ailment in cows. She was put down on December 29, 2008 surrounded by her herd and friends at Farm Sanctuary.

NO MONEY, NO PROBLEM
update on the cunt who tried to accost me in the bathroom. she was apparently seen last night outside of motorcity, fingering herself and trying to talk to people. you could not even make that up. this woman is going to fuck herself, with or without your help.
with all that money you'd think she'd be able to feed her neck.
these kids don't even look half as strange as starved celebrities.
this guy looks like he could definitely stick a needle in you

MODEL HOPEFULS MISSING A STAGE DIVER

craigslist is a lonley man's emotional gold mine. i can't help but look at listings with photos. sure you get weird dong photos, but you also get some good ones that pretty much convey the vulnerable soul of someone looking for love in all the wrong places.
this one says, " i'm a guy with a good sense of humor. i work out a lot, notice the toes. i keep a 9-5, and am often told that i look younger than i am." the only downside: who folds photos of themselves this many times? and uses it for an ad.
this one says, " i went to the north pole once on acid and never came back.
this one says, " i feel better when i stand about 40 feet away from the camera. i'm not sure what to do with my hands, but i hope you will dually note the randomly placed objects on the shelf, which if my calculations are correct, should counter balance my own lack of personality in this photo."
no brainer. "mysterious, but probably hideous."

VAGRANTS A LA BOWL
Razortail played a show the other night at the bowl. Total headliners, the other band was The DietCokeheads featuring Billy Rohan's sister on drums. I came late, missing a bunch of other bands that had I known were playing I still would have missed because i had shit to do, son! But the other bands included Bad Dream and Tyransaurus Rhombus Rex or some gay shit Alex Porta thought up of. (J/K!)

the real jerry is actually somewhere else 'creting a spot
shows are actually much more enjoyable when you can put your foot up on stage. that way you can casually rest your 40oz on your thigh as you watch razortail's bassist in reality high def.

james gettin' all "jamesy" at the show. i told him i saw his thingie on the rough edit menu of paulgar's florida dvd. he kinda hung his head and walked away. maybe i shouldn't have told him i saw it, but i mean that would only be lying. and i'm not a liar. i'm more like a "i saw your thingie on a dvd" public announcer.
