Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.
(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)
FEAR - BEEF BOLOGNA
I was just remembering all the backyard parties Brownsville used to have in the 90s. It was a good gig, because we had punk rock and the Mexico discotheques. Things changed.
1993 ! Stylin all the while. In the Mexican jungle…deep in the Yucatan .. there are more than a 1000 pyramids mostly covered with jungle and many appear to be mountains. we drove around the entire Yucatan loop for 8 days thru Chiapas ,Aqua azul,palenque,tulum,chichinitza,and my favorites…the ones with no names…just a little wooden sign with a chalk marking of a pyramid shape . a guard with a smile and no tourists in sight . that was the mystery to me . there were many . many stories there . a carnival fully in swing at 2 am blasting techno - the teenagers clearly on the prowl in their sunday finest …..suits and big puffy 1st communion dresses under the ferris wheel….at the car rental they told me not to drive at night because “banditos”…is this jungle rave what they feared I’d really see ? it was odd hearing techno in 1994 anywhere let alone in a remote mexican jungle . my peace and love fantasies of stargazing advanced technologists smacked me with the brutal reality of bloodletting fatcats who only made room for a few at the top of the pyramid looking down upon the crowd. like life, it’s complex and didactic and the creators are often overtaken by the sleighers….and the posers pose in between the pondering……hmmm…I wonder?
