This is love

Rocco ----->


I asked a bunch of people these questions this morning, and here are the answers:

What is the point of dating? What is it all for?

  1. To find someone you like to bear witness to your life, to confirm your worth and existence.
  2. To torture us. God is like a dungeon master sometimes.
  3. Misery? Christian notions of courting? Bad addiction?
  4. Marriage and respectability
  5. To have a best friend for life.
  6. To get your dick sucked.
  7. To be taken care of when you can't take care of yourself.
  8. To find a soulmate and be done.
  9. Because the other option is worse.
  10. It's senseless, but I'm going to keep doing it.
  11. Our God-given need for companionship, affection, physical contact, etc. Then we complicate it with fear.
  12. There's that whole idealistic fallacy that "society is telling me what to do." NATURE is telling us and there's nothing wrong with that. Society IS making us neurotic, though.
  13. To find love. Feel good about ourselves. Learn about ourselves and what we want.
  14. Unlike my mom and dad, I want to end up married and in love with just one person for the rest of my life.
  15. To make a connection and feel special.
  16. Ego?
  17. Validation. Sense of accomplishment. Seeking someone we deem worth sharing our time with and vice versa. What IS dating?
  18. To find someone to bear witness to my life, to feel safe and loved, to sit on a porch holding hands and talking when we're 80.
  19. Hard to say, really. Generally it doesn't seem like a very honest activity.

You're ok, I'm undead

Read! Share! Revolution!

Read! Share! Revolution!

Anarcha LA is sponsoring a radical reading/discussion group with the help of the LA Eco-Village. The first meeting is this Sunday/Domingo, the 27th @ 4pm - to about 6 or so (LAEV has a community potluck at seven - you're welcome to stay if you bring something to share). This meeting is intended to be a place to explore topics concerning power/privilege within an anti-authoritarian context and how we can become empowered as individuals and as a group to bring about postive change to our lives and within our communities. This first meeting will give us a chance to meet and discuss what our ideas are for this group and what potential we see in it and to eat some snacks, drink some coffee/tea/something in a cup and maybe even do a little reading with some discussion - woah. Hope to see you there!!!

PS - if you have time -
Rebecca wrote up a little survey to help assess our interests/thoughts on this group!!
Go Becca!

Address -
117 Bimini Pl
LA CA 90004
(1/2 block east of
Vermont off of first - by Virgil middle school in Koreatown)

Kid friendly but no seperate child care planned at this time
Bring something to eat/drink to share if you can
No planned reading - planners may have something short to read/discuss that day
Bathroom/kitchen available

Contact with any questions:

george (lives with Becca at LAEV - has lots of free time to answer emails)
Becca (busy busy busy - but never too busy for answering questions)
Kaley (Totally on point - lots of school though...)

Little monster babies

Going for a walk with his GiGi

Louder than bombs

I thought I had the cutest baby, but maybe Abram wins


Walking is so exciting!

So is playing with a see-through purse...

...but sometimes your possessions trap you.

We're all animals

People in the South Bay, where I live, call me a hippie because I have hair under my arms.
Doesn't matter what I wear, what music I listen to, what my politics are... Are you a chick? Got hairy armpits?
Life is simple here.

With tired eyes, tired minds, tired souls, we slept

Hanging out in his reading corner before bed

Walk among us

Weird sounds

My favorite drunk carnie (also see him say Mama!)

I was taking these videos when I got home from school + other commitments, so it was late and he was tired. But apparently he's been walking a lot during the day!

The Beast steals the camera

I started school this week and I think we get along so much better when we're not in each others' face all day.
