Lesbian Art Show

Listen to the interview here.

Today I went into Fontanelle on SW Pine to see the Lesbian Art Show, a Dada-inspired exhibition by Azsa West and Mary McAllister. I loved the show. It features collage, drawing, painting and some very cool installation. So tomorrow - on the 26th of June, a Friday - I am hosting the Radiozine and having Mary and gallery director Leslie Miller on. We are going to talk about lesbian art and play some lesbian music.

King Lear and a Casting Director


 Portland Actors Ensemble is one of the oldest Shakespeare in the Parks groups in the country.  For 40 years, they've offered free Shakespeare every summer and have trained countless young actors in performing the bard's plays. Hear more about it on Stage and Studio.  Also check out the interview with Casting Director Lana Veenker. She's cast hundreds of Portland actors in the current cable show "Leverage" and the Harrison Ford movie "The Crowley Project." She's supporting Senate Bill 621 which would make more tax incentives for film and TV producers. Hear how it could make Oregon millions of dollars.

Check out the interview  

Take care, Dmae

Domestic tranquillity

June 16, 2009

There's something about having a leftist politician (and I use that term loosely) in the White House that brings out the crazies. We all remember how it happened under Bill Clinton, and it's clear that it's even more of a problem under Barack Obama. In fact, since his inauguration, there has been an incidence of right-wing domestic terrorism about every two and a half weeks.

Eight episodes of right-wing extremist violence in four and a half months. We haven't gone four weeks since February without some poor guy -- always with a long history of mental illness, usually with a record of military service and/or domestic violence, and invariably jacked up on a toxic cocktail of white male privilege; us-versus-them enemy seeking; fury at women, blacks and/or Jews; and a belief that the world as he knew it was ending unless he took up arms -- taking out his gun and offing innocent Americans in a suicidal bid for glory.

Remember how bent the conservatives got back in April when the Homeland Security Department warned us about right-wing domestic terrorism? Well, they were right. I wonder when we're going to start waterboarding white Republicans to gather information on the next attack?


A Society of Exclusion

What draws people into a politics of hatred – not just the killers who have made the news lately in Witchita and at the Holocaust Museum, but all those whose primary political motive is hostility against cultures and ethnicities different from their own?

Let’s approach this question by going back to basics: What do human beings really want? If we knew that, we might know what people are really after when they do crazy things, and perhaps we would know what to do about it.
