Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
@Amy Mills seeing as the house was destroyed in the 60s, it's way long gone now. Lower Bottoms in that particular section was redeveloped, including, from what I've been told, freeway construction, which was far more popular at the time than any other transportation infrastructure besides commuter rail (BART) both of which supported white flight and suburban sprawl as a planning strategy, leaving the urban centers to rot with no services or support (except violent cops from the 'burbs to beat those too poor and black to flee)....
I like this. I have interstitial cystitis. An invisible condition that is often ignored. We need to be heard and seen.
thanks for the write up see http://nocoalinoakland.info
There are other forms in Alameda too, including some interesting paper pieces, some of which encourage the viewer to take a piece.
wonder if it's the same person who put the gnomes all around oakland utility poles a few years back (and they are still there!)?
Link, what house? I live in Lower Bottoms.
Hey David — I suppose some boxers probably do end up wailing (making long cries of sadness or pain) after their fights, but in the ring they are pretty focused on whaling (to strike or hit vigorously) on each other.
It's spelled "wail" not "whale".
"Those who may have a problem with an East Coast writer publishing an opinion on the place after living here for just four years."
Lots of new arrivals in Oakland, as well as Oakland's pols, absolutely love to read East Coast (NY Times) tourism writers on just how trendy Oakland is.
And creative too, if you think fancy cocktails are Art and spendy dining out is Art Appreciation.
But there are at least two Oaklands and never the twain shall meet.
Do you mean "grisly"? Grizzly refers to bears or gray-haired-ness, neither of which seem to pertain here.
The photo of the Shetman tank is a classic, and is emblematic of the the violence, racism, and inhumanity of 60's urban renewal. The tank is about to tear down a home in my neighborhood of Lower Bottoms. After this and over a hundred others were destroyed, the land at the heart of the neighborhood sat empty for more than a decade.
I am Elizabeth, i want to thank ''firstname.lastname@example.org'' for the very great spell he caste on my husband that makes him to come back to me immediately. We have been married for 9 years and we were blessed with three kids, my husband left us unjust-fully and was lost in a beauty of a woman, a woman who can't even withstand me and was staying with her, and left me and the kids all alone in the house and never care for us. each time I called him, he always insult and used me down on
phone, until i met a friend of mine who introduce me to (Orikiolodumarespelltemple@gmail.com) and he assured me that my husband will be back
to me within three days really after that given time I heard someone knocking at my door and find out it was my husband, pleading and dropping out tears begging for forgiveness, I accepted and we are now one, now i will advice everyone who are in this condition to contact him for your own solution at : Orikiolodumarespelltemple@gmail.com ..... he will
help you and bring your sorrowful life to happiness
CONTACT HIM THROUGH Orikiolodumarespelltemple@gmail.com ...

Beautifully rendered tribute Lincoln. I raise my glass high. xo MJP
I was so glad to finally become an official ink worker in the early nineties. And it was you, Lincoln, that got me there. Always a pleasure to work with you and share struggles and laughs. haste la Victoria Siempre! Great article.
I worked at Pedal Express Courier for three years. What many folks don't know is that Inkworks delivered many of their jobs by bicycle! In fact, their shipping forms had a little box that they would check for orders officially delivered by Pedal Express. Clients loved receiving deliveries by bike and it felt wonderful to deliver work for a fellow worker-owned cooperative. I have many memories of picking up jobs of all sizes from their shop - ranging from a small stack of papers, to boxes weighing several hundred pounds. They were a longtime client of ours and we thank them for all the years of support!
Thanks Lincoln for the article. As a former Inkworks collective member for the last 8 years I would add this.
The most rewarding aspect of Inkworks for me was our customers. Many were social justice non-profits active on the cutting edge of their various issues and causes. Printing their position papers and reports was very educational. Two of my customers were the ACLU of Northern California and the Electronic Frontier Foundation who I was so glad to be able to support their work. I am so grateful to them and our other customers that supported Inkworks for many years. I will miss them.
