Jesus Visits San Francisco

"Jesus was a Capricorn, he ate organic foods. He believed in love and peace and never wore no shoes.Long hair, beard and sandals and a funky bunch of friends. Reckon they'd just nail him up if He come down again..." - Jesus Was a Capricorn by Kris Kristofferson

Public Punditry Contest!

Attention Artists, Activists, and Americans!

Celebrate Your Right to Free Speech in the First Annual Freewayblogger Public Punditry Contest!

Freewayblogger, Buzzflash, Michael, After Downing Street and Skippy the Bush Kangaroo are looking for America's Hottest New Political Pundit! Send pictures or videolinks of your Public Political Punditry to Submissions may include Political Art, Speech, Theater or Text placed or performed legally in public under the protection of the first amendment.
Suggested locations for public puditry include Parks, Libraries, and Town Squares... Doesn't have to be a freeway. All physical artwork and signage must be easily removable from site: No Vandalism.
Winning entries will be chosen for the creativity of both their message and its delivery and will be posted on all the above blogs (and throughout the Blogosphere.) Winners will also have their city and state visited, noticeably, by The Freewayblogger over the summer.

Photo entries should be submitted in JPEG format, and video submitted via YouTube or other video links. Deadline for submissions is June 1st.

Although the first amendment allows broad powers for citizens to use state and public property for the free expression of political speech, questions regarding local restrictions or the use of specific sites or manners of speech should be directed to local authorities or the nearest chapter of the ACLU.

(Neither Freewayblogger or any other blogs associated with this contest bear any responsibility for displays of political opinion which could be considered threatening, Hate Speech, or are otherwise illegal, damaging, injurious or stupid.)

The Art and Wisdom of PsychoMike-o

"I Sing of Arms, and the Man..." So began Virgil in his epic poem Aeneid. I sing too of arms - of cardboard, paint, and the mighty overhead projector - and of The Man: PsychoMike-o, whose bravery, wisdom, and sheer perseverance have made Ann Arbor a Shining Beacon of Participatory Democracy.

While here in California we enjoy picture-perfect conditions, PsychoMike-o, along with his lovely young assistant, routinely brave sub-zero temperatures in the dead of night to spread their message of Truth and Righteousness to the slumbering masses... A True Wintersoldier in the Information Wars.

Freewaybloggers come and go, but few have so fully mastered the tools, tactics and tradecraft of the guerrilla. Fewer still have taken so to heart the credo of the Free Speech Warrior: that you keep on posting until you have nothing left to say... that you keep on fighting until the war is won. Give me a hundred such men and we could awaken the nation.

When, and if, this war is finally over, he'll be out there fighting against the next one. And when that war's over, he'll fight to save the planet, for clean air and drinking water, so we can all live in health and peace in a better world than this one. On behalf of Ann Arbor, a Grateful Nation, and Generations Yet to Come, Thank You.

Below are some of PsychoMike-o's entries to the Peeps Diorama Contest.

"Insomnia is my greatest inspiration."

"The Internet is just a world passing around notes in a classroom."

"I celebrated Thanksgiving the old-fashioned way. I invited everybody in the neighborhood to my house, we had an enormous feast, and then I killed them and took their land."
