William Burroughs

"Thanks for the wild turkey and the Passenger Pigeons, destined to be shit out through wholesome American guts

thanks for a Continent to despoil and poison

thanks for Indians to provide a modicum of challenge and danger

thanks for vast herds of bison to kill and skin, leaving the carcass to rot

thanks for bounties on wolves and coyotes

thanks for the AMERICAN DREAM to vulgarize and falsify until the bare lies shine through

thanks for the KKK, for nigger-killing lawmen feeling their notches, for decent church-going women with their mean, pinched, bitter, evil faces

thanks for 'Kill a Queer for Christ' stickers

thanks for laboratory AIDS

thanks for Prohibition and the War Against Drugs

thanks for a country where nobody is allowed to mind his own business

thanks for a nation of finks — yes,

thanks for all the memories all right, lets see your arms you always were a headache and you always were a bore

thanks for the last and greatest betrayal of the last and greatest of human dreams."

He's the reason I stopped using products tested on animals when I was a kid. I hope he inspires others to look on the back of products too and speak up against animal testing.

Bold Native


Filmmakers, cast and crew will host the Los Angeles screening and DVD release party of the independent feature film Bold Native, the first fiction film about the Animal Liberation Front (ALF), a non-centralized group of animal liberators and economic saboteurs that the FBI calls their top domestic terrorist priority. The DVD release party concludes an independently booked summer tour by Bold Native which brought the film to capacity audiences in Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle, Washington DC, Des Moines, and New York City. This event and screening will be held on Saturday, November 27th at 6:30 p.m. at the Downtown Independent Movie Theater, 251 S. Main Street, Los Angeles, CA.

In Bold Native, Charlie Cranehill (newcomer Joaquin Pastor), an ALF member wanted by the government for domestic terrorism, emerges from the underground to coordinate a nationwide action, while his CEO father (Randolph Mantooth, Emergency) tries to find him before the FBI does. Simultaneously, a young idealist campaigns for more humane treatment of farmed animals on behalf of a large non-profit organization, and a woman from Charlie’s past threatens to undermine his plans.

The film reflects a growing cultural debate about the use of animals for food, clothing, entertainment, and scientific research. It introduces viewers to the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act (AETA) of 2006, a law which enables the prosecution of activists as terrorists if their actions result in economic damage to corporations in animal industries like factory farms, slaughterhouses, research labs or fur farms. In addition to narrative storytelling, the film incorporates undercover footage from labs, farms, and real-life animal liberations for stunning realism.

look who's benefiting

I am shocked by this.  Lets get paid by teaching children that the abuse, exploitation, and killing of marine mammals is a good thing. WWF, National Wildlife Federation, and The Nature Conservancy have sold out by taking money from Sea World tickets and are now on my shit list.  It just keeps growing.

Baby girl needs a home!

This adorable baby girl literally jumped into my arms yesterday. She was dumped (I suspect) in this big empty lot near my work. I work on a sound stage lot and there are NO houses anywhere. She is completely docile and loving. Rode in my car on the dash and fell asleep! About six months old with a clean bill of health from the vet. Full shots and de-worming done. FIV and Feline Leukemia NEGATIVE. Flea treatment done.
Now she needs a loving home! Please forward to anyone in the LA area who might be interested. Contact Patricia
