Re: “VAMP Record Shop in Oakland Celebrates Fourth Anniversary

It is amazing how almost any smallish business like Vintage Art and Music for the People are obligated to use Fakebook for publicity. It is even more amazing that the Express puts that fact on the front page of the story.

Re: “Town Business: Developer Wants to Stick MacArthur BART Tower's Affordable Units Entirely in Bottom Quarter of Building

More mindless drivel designed to fan flames of class warfare. BFD that the subsidized housing does not include a penthouse suite.

What a terrible thought that the "elites" that live there will need to pony up an even greater premium price to get the views. Should we give them more lower floors so that the elites pay less money for a pretty view and drive the total revenue and viability down?

I think Darwin cut his math and economics classes and spent his time learning magical thinking.

Another EBX article to stir the pot. Who gives a %^@$* where the units are ? If this was any other city in the USA there wouldn't be an option of affordable housing. Please EBX, try to stop fanning the flames.

Re: “The Veg Hub in Oakland Cooks Fake Meat for the People

I appreciate the level of detail in the taste descriptions and I look forward to checking out the Veg Hub.

Re: “The Veg Hub in Oakland Cooks Fake Meat for the People

For ethical vegans (and anyone else who supports social justice), the fact that they are Seventh-Day Adventists (who are against LGBTs/marriage equality, and don't allow women to be ordained) could be an issue. I'm not comfortable patronizing them because of that, which is unfortunate because of the other positive aspects. There are many other vegan restaurants in the area who don't have oppressive beliefs (to my knowledge), who I'd rather support.

I've reached out to them, and they don't denounce these aspects of their religion (although they curiously claim they don't believe LGBTs or women are "inferior").

Re: “New Oakland Police Chief Talks Cultural Change and Compassion for the Homeless

I would love to see a large ship, i.e. a retired cruise ship, parked in the turning basin and made available as a homeless shelter. The land will always be used up for more and more expensive property development projects, but our waterways could serve as a very good platform for safety and shelter. Who wants to work on that, and fund it?

Wishing you success. Then hoping you and your family bring some of that success and expand in East Oakland. We could use some shops out this way too.

Re: “The Bay Is Brutal: A Love Letter To Concrete and Brutalism in the Bay Area

Joseph Esherick is also credited for Wurster Hall's design, with Vernon DeMars and Don Olsen. Good, playful piece -- those of us who spent years either studying or working in a brutalist building, for me that's Wurster Hall, particularly will appreciate the cognitive dissonance that brutalist structures create in their inhabitants. I love/hate Wurster Hall, and there certainly not enough character spaces for me to tell you the many ways. However it remains the Jungian archetype of architectural building form -- forever imprinted in my subconscious as a beautiful, evocative, leaky, cold space. As I write, I think of all nighters at the drafting board almost three decades ago, and really want an espresso from Strada (Roma). I will be curious to see what happens to Campi's celestial wonder, the old BAMPFA, a seismically challenged structure (google "non-ductile concrete"). Campi took his inspiration for the building from the heavens.

NorCal natives Kyle Espeleta and Jesse Wakeman co-wrote this funny, unnerving, and touching dark comedy. Shot for just 40k over a total of 14 days, DC is definitely one not to miss for indie film buffs and mainstream moviegoers alike. Won't be in theaters long so get out and go see.

"...Developer Wants to Stick MacArthur BART Tower's Affordable Units Entirely in Bottom Quarter of Building..."

And ??? so ??? I'm glad that they're below market rate included- regardless of where they are.

I see NO problem with allowing those who are paying market rate to have the choice of the lot.

While nice, why MUST a developer contribute all of those "community benefit" projects. Heck... isn't the Mosswood center a city owned property. It's stipulations like this that has made it so difficult for things to get off the ground here in The 'Town

Re: “Town Business: Developer Wants to Stick MacArthur BART Tower's Affordable Units Entirely in Bottom Quarter of Building

I see our New Mexico carpet bagger is waggling his finger again.

I love it. We have a hole on the ground that used to be an always full, effectivley useless parking lot that could be 400 living units... And that's not good enough for anyone.

We have people pouring into the area; people screaming about rising rent and ownership costs and others, including the carper baggers playing NIMBY (everything else is 2 or 3 stories... Cant we all chant together? No changes! I got mine!). I know! Lets build a wall around Oakland!

How about some solutions vs mindless criticism Darwin?

I love the black businesses. We need more. Growing up in Oakland I have watched them wither away. I'm glad yours is a beautiful bud. Hoping it blossoms into bouquet of bountiful blessings for you and yours.

Re: “Town Business: Developer Wants to Stick MacArthur BART Tower's Affordable Units Entirely in Bottom Quarter of Building

Why is none of the money dedicated to transit improvements?? The very existence of this building derives from our recognition that we need to get more people using transit. So why not dedicate the impact fees to improving car-free access to Macarthur BART?

Neighborhood shuttles, enhanced bike facilities, expanded bike/ped access: any of these would help.

Re: “Dan Savage: Should You Tell Him or Her That You're Cheating? Or Keep it Secret?

I feel relieved to finally have my husband back. He loved me for years but later left me for some other woman and I hated myself because I felt I let him leave. I was caught in a bad position and was about losing my husband for bad until I met dr.sanu and contacted him, explained my situation to him and 48 hours later my husband returned to me and was filled with regrets for his action and we are happy again. If I hadnt met dr.sanu then I wondered where my marriage would be today. Kindly find his contact below:
