Alibi Flashback: John Trudell speaks

Our 1994 interview with the late poet and activist

By
Way back in the time before time (which is to say, 1994), Bill and Charlene Sewady talked with the poet, activist and hero. This seems like an appropriate time to reach back into the archives and revisit that interview.

Letters From Downtown

Signs of Compassion

By

When you work Downtown, when you're here day after day, you deaden a bit to some of the things you see. A couple huddled in a doorway on a cold November morning, a worn-out blanket barely covering them; cops on bikes pulling a homeless man up off of the sidewalk, a puddle of vomit at his feet; an elderly gentleman in suit and tie, stalking down the street and shouting curses at the demons leaking from his head; none of these things provoke a second glance after a while. There's a lot of suffering here for sure and very little that one person can do. A dollar here, a dollar there, maybe that helps a bit, but the overall feeling is one of powerlessness, and slowly you become hardened to it.

Today, though, I noticed this sign in the window of Lindy's Diner, and that numbness thawed just a little bit. No, Lindy's isn't going to solve the problems of homelessness and hunger. And one single meal on one single day isn't "enough." But it is something, a reminder that hardness isn't the answer, that compassion is. And that even if we can never do enough, we can, and should, still try.

Can Courtney Be On a Podcast?

Yes. Yes she can.

By

If you've been following the adventures of our resident "person who does things" (we've got to think of a better title), Courtney Foster, you'll know that she's always up for trying something new. This past weekend, that "something new" was appearing on the Potential Problems Podcast, a banter-fest hosted by local comedians John Cuellar and Allen Clark.

It's an expletive filled hour or so that isn't afraid to explore some (hilariously) risque content, so maybe wait until the drive home from work before checking this out. But definitely DO check it out! Because these guys are funny and Courtney is too.

And hey! We're bringing our own podcast back from the grave, so watch this space for a brand new episode!

Realistic renderings of kids' monster drawings are amazing

By

Everybody knows that kids have the weirdest, most wonderful broken brains on the planet. And if you've ever looked at drawing made by the under-8 set, you've probably wondered what it be like if the lumpy, tentacled beast depicted actually roamed the earth.

The Monster Project has tasked a group of artists with bringing these child-drawn monstrosities ever so slightly closer to our world by rendering them in a realistic fashion, and the results are wonderful. Check them out, and also note that they have a kickstarter, so if you're moved by their work, you can support it directly.
