Re: “Best Art Walk That's Not Art Murmur

This is what i've been saying for some time. There are a lot of us here on the Avenue who are very very good at what we do, and we have merchants who are listening. This should go on growing into something quite wonderful. CK Gallery is only a beginning to the gallery scene that could and should exist here on the Ave.

Re: “Best Art Walk That's Not Art Murmur

I prefer going to Art Walk vs. Art Murmur. Its a little less of a scene and i can actually chill for a bit with the art & artists without getting shoved to the side by some hipster.

Re: “Most Obvious Inclusion on This List

Great writing - you've hit perfectly on almost everything that makes BeerRev great. What did you miss? How important Rebecca and Fraggle are in making/sustaining this best of all beer bars.

Re: “Most Community-Minded Sex Shop

I have had the priveledge to enter into this shop. I was suprised about the content of it because I was taken there as a suprise. I am not a stranger to "Toy Stores" but this place was wholly different. It was classy, tasteful, and intruiging. There were more than just sex toys and the owner is very nice. I was not nervous. I did not feel exposed. My shopping experience that day was relaxed and enjoyable. I even bought postcards!! If you haven't been to Feelmore510, stop by. You won't be sorry

Re: “Best Artist

I am quite honored! Thanks EBX! Just a quick clarification; I organized the "Artists in Action" portion of the Oakland Art Murmur Flourish event. The whole successful event was organized by a large group of generous volunteers led by director Danielle Fox and other terrific OAM Board members. I love you Oakland!

Re: “Best Untapped, Warehouse-Size Thrift Store

As far as I know; and I love the thrift store, so if I'm wrong I would like to know, Thrift Town is the only good large thrift store left. Their prices are reasonable...who could afford to shop at Goodwill??!!!, and they always have some special discount going, whether coupons or color sale tags, or sale days, theres' always a way to spend/save. I love the one in El Sobrante!

Re: “Best Political Artist Collective

Cops nationwide are often used by the fbi/cia to harass, malign, mock, threaten and possibly kill the Targets. See examples of the cop's low mentality and homicidal mindset as they verbally assault me and attack my online documentations of police corruption; note that the last & related links below presents evidence of crimes by the UT police against me, AND IN THE THIRD LINK SEE HOMICIDAL CHARACTER OF FBI OPERATIVE AND ASSASSIN J. ROBERT UPTON'S :………

Re: “Best Political Artist Collective


This is the real fbi which uses the methods and incorporates the values of the notorious Mafia.…

The fbi parades Mafia murderers around the fbi academy for the education of their agents, police, etc. The Mafia serial killers (hit men) are homicidal sociopaths and are often in the witness protection program; the fbi learns from them how the mafia uses violent, deadly and inhumane practices against Targets.
