Re: “New Growth in Temescal Alley Means Death for Polymorph Recording

I've played the Stikman's and Dan Rathbun's music, and many bands that have recorded at Polymorph, regularly during my radio show at London's Resonance FM. There is a world-wide underground that appreciates what's gone on there, and if the locals had any sense, they'd treasure the uniqueness of that the way Portobello Rd and Brick Lane treasure the input from the branches of the world-famous Rough Trade Records. Have a care before you lose it.

Re: “New Growth in Temescal Alley Means Death for Polymorph Recording

LONG Before Big Box retail and internet monsters like Amazon help demolish main street in the U.S., Real Estate speculation has killed: Record Stores, Book Stores, Cafes, underground style purveyors of all kinds, and, yes, recording studios and the like---> FACELESS "owners" could give a crap about those who paved the way EVERY TIME.... Polymorph will be sorely missed (3 of my bands recorded there) and Sarita Waite will lose no sleep over it, though she CERTAINLY SHOULD. Thanks for helping to screw the music community, Ms. Waite- and letting the almighty dollar have the final word once again....

Sure, people can cut albums on their own without the help of a professional if they don't care what it sounds like.
A thousand monkeys on a thousand typewriters = a thousand Home Produsahs on a thousand laptops running Fruity Loops and a cracked version of Pro Tools 7.

Re: “InterPlaying With Ourselves

Love that comment about needing scientists to tell us that it's good for us to breathe. Anything that encourages good breathing and playfulness has to be beneficial.

Re: “InterPlaying With Ourselves

What a great article!
I've been doing InterPlay since 1998 or so. The first time I came to a class it was in another city from where I live. I felt relieved....Like I'd come home. It was exactly what I'd been looking for.
But for months I put off finding where I could take more classes. Go figure...
From the start, a lot of the exercises were easy and fun. Or sometimes, deeply revealing and moving. And the first year or two, a few of the exercises were quite challenging, and I thought I wasn't doing them "right." But in every class, the leaders would say to everyone, 'You can't do InterPlay wrong....however you doing it, that''s the right way." And the atmosphere in every InterPlay class I've ever attended is so positive and playful.
So I kept coming back, and over time the activities that were hardest for me have become some of my most favorite.

Some of the benefits:
InterPlay has made my writing more fluid and fun. Also I've become a lot more playful, and more easy-going and trusting of life and of myself: that I am 'good enough' just like I am.

Several of the InterPlay forms have come in very handy in everyday life. For a quick break from computer work, I'll do a the 3-breath song, the InterPlay breathing or a 'shake it all out' thing we do. Just yesterday, I noticed I was feeling fragile. So I did a 'one-arm dance and allowed a little song to come out, and then did a little free writing about of a big trip I'm taking. Five minutes later, I was feeling so much better! Plus I got a simple insight which continues to relieve a lot of stress for me about a project I'm involved in.

Re: “InterPlaying With Ourselves

InterPlay is fun, educational, life changing, warm, inclusive, and diverse. I've been doing InterPlay for a long time, and gradually, in -- as InterPlay co-founder Phil Porter would say -- incremental steps, I have become stronger physically, mentally, and spiritually. Not to speak of all the wonderful friends I've made!

I wish we had you in Anaheim... I would quit my gym for yours! I've heard about your prices... and basically the more you workout the less you pay. Win-win situation :)

Re: “The Perfect Sidekick Offers a Safe Space for Lesbians — and Straight Women — to Work Out

This place is absolutely awesome! I went for the first time two weeks ago just to stop by and check out the place. My boyfriend was with me and as soon as we went in, we were both using all the workout equipment! Nathalie made it fun AND INFORMATIVE! She drew on a white board what area we were working out and what moves would help improve that section. I got to meet the yoga instructor too and she was super cool, I definitely want to try yoga next!

Re: “The Perfect Sidekick Offers a Safe Space for Lesbians — and Straight Women — to Work Out

This article hits the nail on the head! The Perfect Sidekick is an accepting and honest group of people who are improving their lives through community and fitness. Nathalie genuinely cares about the overall health and happiness of her members, A rarity in the (sometimes shallow) fitness industry...

Re: “The Perfect Sidekick Offers a Safe Space for Lesbians — and Straight Women — to Work Out

Such an SMART move -- It's crazy nobody had thought of it before. But Nathalie has a personality that I think no one could have brought to an LGBT gym if they tried. Congrats on having the guts to be an innovative thinking and going for it!

To The Perfect Sidekick, trainers and clients - keep up the hustle and good work!

Re: “IsAnyoneUp.com and the Porn Generation

As you probably know, some of the people that end up on isanyoneup have the pictures sent in without their permission. When they try to get Hunter Moore, the site's owner, to take the pictures down they often get ignored, or worse yet, get subjected to more ridicule.

I offer a service that gets the unauthorized pictures removed. Before becoming an attorney, I was a software engineer and I use my technical background to track down the companies and servers that are providing images that are infringing copyright rights. I then use the law to get the embarrassing and illegal pictures removed.
You can find more information about my service here:
http://cygnetiplaw.com/isanyoneup-com-dmca…

Please let your readers know about it in case they need help getting pictures removed from isanyoneup or any other so-called "revenge porn" websites.

Best regards,
