Re: “The Icky Boyfriends: "We Still Suck"

"I actually don't want to make circ. illegal, I just want to end it."
Doctors could simply refuse to do it, as a matter of medical ethics, and more and more do. In most of the developed world it is not offered and not asked for, because it's not seen as a matter for "parental choice". Several senior lawyers have argued that it is already technically illegal, like the non-consented, non-therapeutic removal of every other normal, healthy, functional, non-renewing body part. The law just lacks enforcement.

Re: “The Icky Boyfriends: "We Still Suck"

I ask people "Do you think it's okay to cut off part of someone's body without their permission?" It's a YES or NO question. There's no middle ground.

It's evil to forcefully cut off 65%-85% of the males sexually charged fine-touch receptors. Leaving it straitjacketed by it's own skin is diabolical.

California's 2011 law AB 768, with only one parent's permission (a 25% chance of keeping one's foreskin), allows this genital mutilation to be forced upon any male to age 18, to be done without medical knowledge, without pain relief, to be done anywhere, with anything. Who made this law? Our now State Board of Equalization member Fiona Ma and assembly member Mike Gatto. There's nothing equal about AB 768.

Circumcision minimizes the breadth and depth of sensation. Cut males find it uncomfortable to have their glans touched after orgasm, but intact males don't experience this negative because they have all of their pleasure receptors to override such unpleasantness. Intact men can just continue to go and go and go. Yes circumcision is a limiter of multi orgasms.

Re: “Can Birdland Take Flight in Its New Location?

Birdland es verdaremente un lugar unico, encuanto a su atmosfera que siempre de sus principios a sido tan amigable, intima y comunitaria, como a los actos musicales de alto caliber que atrae siempre, en el Jazz es escepcional y ahora en su nueva localidad musica variada tambien, como por ejemplo la gran y unica ' Ana Tijoux ', artista de Hip Hop con un toque unico y especial a ella, directo de Chile! En realidad un concierto de no perderse, no solo para los Chilenos, pero para cualquier Latino americano y personas que les interesen el buen Hip Hop con un toque sudamericano que pica... El Octubre 14 ANA TIJOUX en Birdland! :))

Re: “Can Birdland Take Flight in Its New Location?

The new Birdland 2.0 incorporates the down-home charm, the wonderful eccentricities, and the community feel of its former Berkeley location with ceiling height, a nice dance floor and a beautiful renovation job on its new digs. Now one of the best party scenes ever has evolved into a space where more peo0ple can see really great music and feel really good about it!

Re: “Can Birdland Take Flight in Its New Location?

Michael's quest is a worthy one - there's a motherlode of terrific local musicians and a scarcity of venues, and Michael's been wonderfully open about presenting a wide range of us. Here's to many years of great live *local* music!

Re: “Keep Mutating

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for noting my miscalculation about 38 years. On the "first Bay Area punk record" point, I should have clarified it and wrote "first Bay Area punk album." I wrote "arguably," because Psychotic Pineapple's album is earlier, though perhaps not "punk."

Re: “Keep Mutating

It's stated that he joined Chrome "more than forty years ago." Yet if he joined after 1976's "The Visitation," that was 38 years back.
Also, it's claimed that the DKs' debut LP of 1980 was "arguably the first Bay Area punk record." This ignores and slights the 1976 single by Crime, the 1977 EP by The Avengers, the 1978 EP by The Readymades, etc.

Re: “Are Jazz Festivals Excluding Women?

Gender discrimination has no place in jazz.....It doesn't matter if you are a girl or a guy, ..What matters is can you play? Can you swing? This would be like saying there is 30 % blacks and 70 % whites...or 57 % are italian american, while only 23 % are German american...Jazz belongs to all races, all color and and all genders...It is 2014, it's so sad we are even talking about this....

Re: “Turning The Volume Up On Oakland

Love the statement: "We're capturing a certain moment of time in Oakland," said Tavella. "We were having trouble confining it to a certain sound, since there is so much good music here." Ah, just like our amazing denizens. Spicy variety!
