NOT BORED! | In response to the way he was slandered in the French press during its coverage of the murder of his friend, Gerard Lebovici, on 5 March 1984, Guy Debord withdrew all six of his films from world-wide distribution. It wasn’t until shortly after his death (a suicide) on 30 November 1994 that two of Debord’s films were finally screened on French TV. Finally, in November 2005, Debord’s films were re-released as a collection. Most of these films have never been screened in New York. In this retrospective, all six of Debord’s films will be shown in chronological order and in the original French. No subtitles. Translations and other relevant printed materials will be available. more... 4 Comments

Jed Brandt and Matt Wasserman | In January 2005, Indypendent writer Matt Wasserman had this to say about ""Recipes for Disaster": "Crimethinc is the American heir to situationism, born in punk shows and hopped trains instead of cafés and garrets. They have yet to inspire a May ‘68 but in their second book, Recipes for Disaster, they move from their previous manifestos and pamphlets to suggestions for taking action. They offer up a “moveable feast,” with 61 recipes ranging from “Antifascist Action” to “How to Make a Bicycle into a Record Player” to “Squatting.” All are forms of direct action, or “acting directly to meet needs.” (This book turns “just do it” into an anarchist slogan.) And nearly all take the status quo as a given." [Read The Original Review]

rozele | Jewish supporters of workers’ rights zapped a Yiddish studies conference this weekend at NYU, where graduate teachers have been on strike for over 100 days. Since fall 2005, NYU’s graduate teachers have been on strike for a new contract, and the entire campus has been under picket; attending events held in NYU buildings is crossing a picket line. The conference’s organizers aligned themselves with that effort by placing it on the NYU campus, rather than at one of the many community venues which have hosted events during the strike. more... 0 Comments

Butler was considered to be one of the first African-American women to break into the world of science fiction. Jane Jewell, of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, said 'She is a world-class science fiction writer in her own right. She was one of the first and one of the best to discuss gender and race in science fiction.'"
