I’m going to be a good teacher.

One of the fun things I’ve learned in teacher school is that kids, particularly very young kids, are suuuuuper stupid. CHECK IT OUT.

BONUS: The last part will teach you how to totally cheat little kids out of gram crackers.

Mai 68 Posters

I’m excited about this post because it’s radical politics, which I like, and design, which everyone else likes. These are posters from the 1968 General Strike in France. I think they are the bee’s knees.

Content-aware deletion

We got CS5 at MCAD so my co-worker and I figured we’d try out this content aware shit everyone’s talking about. He found a random picture on the internet of a road. Here’s the original.

March 4th Day of Action

Today was a massive day of action to oppose budget cuts, tuition hikes, layoffs and furloughs in all level of public education. SocialistWorker.org has been live blogging the whole day with readers sending in reports from across the country. Here’s the most recent from San Francisco:

About 3,000 students, teachers and parents from all levels of education marched down Mission Street, headed toward a giant rally at San Francisco’s Civic Center, reports David Russitano, a math teacher and member of United Educators of San Francisco.

The crowd is a cross-section of all races and genders. The feeling is festive, with costumes, homemade signs and plenty of noise-makers. It feels like the start of a massive movement.

And the crowd is still continuing to grow as schools get out!

Protesters from all parts of the Bay Area are converging on the Civic Center rally in San Francisco–expectations are high for a huge turnout.

Here’s a link to the rest of the live blog. This makes me so happy. There’s some awesome stuff happening right now!

Update: That 3,000 mentioned above became 20,000 within two hours! Democracy Now reported that, nationwide, the action numbered around 100,000!

How about I post another video!

You guys are diggin’ the videos, right?! France + Star Wars = Fun!

Howard Zinn, 1922-2010

It’s actually taken me off guard how sad I am that Howard Zinn died yesterday. I’m not good a eulogizing, so I’m not going to. Instead, I’m just going to post a lecture that Dr. Zinn gave last year and let that be that.


People shouldn’t be able to make these noises.


I’m endorsing Bill for President, because he saved Shambot!
