THE ULTIMATE FOOD FIGHT

DON’T CLEAN YOUR PLATE

Temecula, CA – Well Sports Fans, the story of tomorrow’s planned Occupy May 1st Event has now been released on the web mainstream media and the resulting comment firestorm is one that hasn’t been seen since, er, the Trayvon Martin killing. The comments against the Occupy Movement are ludicrous in their simplistic ideology and pop culture historical references, and almost enough to hope the 0ne Percent wins the depopulation effort that they are waging against the 99%, 98% of whom don’t even know that they are on the list. But like Martin Luther King who marched for all black people including the thugs or Jesus who died ‘for all’ even George Zimmerman, the Occupiers march for all the 99%. And of course, 98% don’t realize that they are slowly being poisoned by the people who take our tax money, however, that all is about to change on Wednesday. Why Wednesday?

Scott Mann clarifies his endorsement in the 67th Assembly District race

Statement From Scott Mann, Menifee School Board Member:

"Today, Melissa Melendez' campaign put out a statement showing my support for her campaign. Sadly, the statement had quotes from me that I did not approve for release. I have asked the Melendez campaign to retract this statement immediately and to provide better oversight of campaign staff.

Phil Paule is the true conservative in this race who signed a 'No New Tax Pledge' early on and will work to eliminate the ridiculous regulations that stifle the California economy. He understands what it will take to create relief for businesses, entrepreneurs, and hard-working taxpayers in our state. I believe so strongly that Phil will do the best job in Sacramento that I've spent countless hours over many weekends talking to voters in Menifee on his behalf."

From one Naval veteran to another, it is important to maintain 'water tight integrity' with your campaign staff."

DICK CLARK - R.I.P.


AMERICAN BANDSTAND
Temecula, CA – Dick Clark passed away yesterday and I read the report shortly after it happened. I reflected a minute about how I had recently talked to someone who thought that he died years ago. I had thought the same thing though I couldn’t quite remember when he had taken his final bow. So seeing the news of his death yesterday was an ‘oh’ moment. I hadn’t planned to write a story about Dick Clark, as everybody knows Dick Clark. Then this morning I see all the majors running the story front page and being in the music scene myself, well. Unlike in most of my stories, there is no direct personal involvement with the subject. I never met Dick Clark or came even close to. Like most people, I knew Dick Clark through pop culture music.

AFRO-LESS MAN RETURNS


BUT THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME – SMOKE THAT TUMBLEWEED
Temecula, CA – In a week that finally saw murder charges brought against George Zimmerman, in a year that marks our empire’s 11th in Afghanistan, on a night of wind and rain, the man who is known as Afroman, Joseph Foreman, made his appearance in Temecula at the Tilted Kilt, without an ‘afro’. What has the world come to? It was like seeing Hugh Hefner as a eunuch, Pamela Anderson boob-less, or Jay Leno chinless. Fortunately the Afroman song message remains the same as does the funk driven beat. As we like to say in the biz, it wasn’t a sellout, but it was a solid show. The supporting line-up assured that success. For me, each act brought another layer of locality in the scene.

CONVICTIONS TOSSED - JOE AND JOE GET NEW GO

It's official: Former OC Weekly cover story icons Joe Byron and Joe Grumbine are no longer convicted felons.

Both men were operators of a pair of Long Beach marijuana dispensaries as well as Garden Grove's Unit D collective that were raided in Dec. 2009; they were convicted of pot sales in a Dec. 2011 trial that ended with the presiding judge, Charles D. Sheldon, dismissing himself from the case after sending a congratulatory letter to the prosecutor--just the latest evidence of his overwhelming bias, (see "Judge Charles D. Sheldon is Captain Kangaroo, Dec. 22, 2011). But today, acting on a motion for a new trial by defense attorneys Christopher Glew and Allison Margolin, Long Beach Superior Court Judge Joan Comparet-Cassani threw out the two men's convictions, awarding them the right to a new and hopefully fair trial.

FABLED NESSY BURGERS DISAPPEAR? GASP!!


A MOMENTARY LAPSE OF RELOCATION
Temecula, CA – One of the most ‘in’ things around these parts is or was a very small in-descript little portable eatery called Nessy Burgers. Perched by the side of the road just off the Hwy 76 to Oceanside and I-15 South to San Diego [in relation to Temecula], the small clean food stand has remained in the same spot for 26 years. Every day when you pass the location there is a group of people eating and/or in line for food. The menu is simple and the sodas are canned. It is a pick and go kind-of-place, perfect for the traffic that flows by it on a daily basis. It was one such day years ago in the middle 90s that a friend of mine and I stopped to see just what all the eating hubbub was about. One word:delicious!

AFROMAN RETURNS

GETTING TILTED ON FRIDAY THE 13TH

Temecula, CA – Though the forecast calls for rain and it is the second of 3 Friday the thirteenths this year, a packed house is expected as Temecula welcomes back its next most popular black man after Chuck Washington, AFROMAN. Appearing back at the Tilted Kilt Friday after the sold-out December Christmas show, see recent archives, with A-Man will be DEVOCEAN, LOOSE NUTTS, ILLNOISE, INDICA ROOTS, and C-WAY. With the current wave of shooting homicides, many of them racially motivated, it’s a relief to attend an event based on music rather than madness, reefer rather than racism, and poetry rather than polarizing punditry. AFROMAN, the Grammy nominated homie is back! Roll up the good times and let the good times roll.

TOTALLY DISTORTED BY THE VAULT


NOT READY FOR VEGAS ANYMORE
         Temecula, CA – Sometimes I feel like I’m two thousand years old as I watch events unfold in the scene. At the scene speed of light you see people get a second chance at destiny, bands get re-birthed, and believers made of cynics who were once outside the T-Town scene. It is magical, Sports Fans, and Friday night’s Social Distortion show had elements of all 3. Folks, there is a reason why I roll deep in the hood around this valley. It is the people and the music that they make which is like Reality TV without the TV. To see all the character arcs, cast rotation, and side drama, all done to a soundtrack of today’s freshest music is better than being Dick Clark. After the jump, the distorted view from my bandstand.

WHO MADE THE MOON?


WHY AREN’T WE ALL RACISTS?
         Temecula, CA – Having put out a number of political and music stories, it’s time for some third leg of my theme topic Triple Crown, the crown of religion. There are 3 reasons that call for this logic. It’s Easter season, Trayvon Martin/the proud to be white forward in my email box, and a video that I recently saw. To the fulfillment of my Jewish grandmother, Mary Belle Bowman/Daniel, who said to me long ago before I ever knew another side of life existed, this story is dedicated. Of my questioning about the future of things to come at the end times, she said, “Before the last days finish, all the secrets of Man will come to light. They will all become known. There will be no more mysteries.” Like the inexperienced character in Tropic Thunder, I looked at Granny and said, “Now what (the hell) does that mean?”
         Granny looked back into my eyes and said, “Everything” and chills ran down my spine. And now, Who Made The Moon?

KONY 2012, PART 2


IC ANSWERS BACK
         Temecula, CA – The organization was never about Jason Russell alone. It started with 3 young Wiseman who followed a star, Collin Powell, when he said there was a genocide going on in a distant land. Grabbing a camera they took off and the video ‘Rough Cut’ was born. Like the CEO of Invisible Children, I was mesmerized to a call to action immediately after screening it. Also, perhaps as one of the oldest IC members, I felt much like one of the two AK-47 toting adults you see in the film watching over the kids. However, in my usual Lois Lane with a penis fashion, I have had an embed’s POV. Today is no exception. After the jump, the just released Invisible Children KONY 2012, Part Duex

WHAT THE ‘SONG OF SONGS’ IS REALLY SINGING


JACK’S LAST BOOK
         Temecula, CA – Over the years I have written all sorts of articles and reports about marijuana. Those stories and their links have led to many side streets about pot, or Mary Jane Green as I have identified her. One of the most fascinating aspects of the plant is the reference to cannabis, both singular and plural, found in the Bible and by extension, the Torah. However, though found in both the NT and OT, the instances pale in comparison to another natural ‘drug’ that leaves Mary Jane and her various personalities in the dust. When I first heard the premise of Jack’s last book in 2003, I might as well have been listening to the latest Harlan Ellison plot. I heard what Jack was saying but it made no dent. Now it does, ladies and gentlemen, this is the thesis that Jack worked on just before he crossed over. It is a subject he became interested in after reading John Marco Allegro’s “The Sacred Mushroom and the Cross.”
