empire + blood = your lifestyle

hi, I'm pxl. I hate the Empire, like bikes, am in love with KDVS, used to cherish the Domes, was the resident atheist at the Bike Church, gardened at EC gardens, usually votes for the Green Party or the Black Panther Party, rides Critical Mass and the Davis Deadly Dashes, make posters for music that's fucking rad, love beauty (in all it's forms), am into pluralism, know how to have fun and would join the Campus Crusade for Chaos and Confusion if I knew who to ask.

my art can be seen here.

Basically, the sentence is starting to become a list of what the subject isn't about rather than a list of what it is. Imperialism isn't necessarily a matter of death (see the Pax Roman for an example of peaceful imperialism by force), but the way the US is in Iraq does relate to death issues. Therefore, I didn't remove the whole thing (although I still think that as yet another "what this subject *isn't* about", it probably should be), but I did remove the non-life/death aspect of it (although in the case cited it does, in abstract imperialism does not necessarily involve killing and thus is not a trait that UCDSfL would be distinguished by not caring about). Gah... I told you it was a bit convoluted. Point is, the whole sentence is almost off the subject, and that part of it is yet farther astray, having nothing directly to do with the student group at UC Davis or their avowed purpose. As I say, "genocide"=="directly with death"=="semi-on-subject"... so feel free to add genocide, although as I later posted to the talk page, the number of what it isn't about had exceeded the number of points they do have to do with, which is a distinct issue that I edited again to correct (edit 347). In no way did I remove the single word because it was controversial... I remove it because it was too vague and wishy-washy. Genocide would have been better... but the whole thing did unbalance the sentence to a list of what they aren't about rather than what they are. You could fill books with issues of life and death that they aren't about... veganism, hunting, gun control, chewing gum mortality rates, sanitation ethics, hygienic education, sex education, the effects of doorknob placement on a right handed majority versus left handed individuals. Genocide would have been more on-subject, but still a "list of stuff they aren't about". —JabberWokky

2008-02-06 19:43:36   it's sorta a double litmus test, you can't just run the string through a binary converter you have to do the math, and then you have to be able to interpret the meaning once you figure it out. As far as the binary goes, it should be in octets but this particular string is 9 digits in length... Just extrapolate, and sometime when I finally run into you in person I will do the math for you... I was so amazed at how the mural changed the whole place, and I was looking for a chance to pitch in, I just thought it would be cool for the robot to talk in his native tongue. —StevenDaubert

2008-02-25 07:56:58   I do like it, and think it should be in there. I only object it to being the focus of the entry. The entry is about MA, not "Why MA is Bad, M'kay?". —JabberWokky

2008-02-25 08:09:07   How's that? I understand that you bleed from your eyes when reading about them, but please give the organization the respect due any other community organization. We all have groups we dislike or think are pointless or downright bad for society, but shouting them down is just poor form. There's plenty of room to give the entry room to say what they are and do, and then jump all over them like a rabid howler monkey with ebola. —JabberWokky

2008-02-25 08:10:39   Works for me. —JabberWokky

2008-02-25 09:29:16   Hey pxl, just fyi, 12 step programs don't require a belief in a deity. Sure, these guys say the serenity prayer and refer to a higher power. The serenity prayer, though, still has plenty of meaning if you eliminate the deity part. Basically, it's a reminder that stuff happens, some of it you can do something about, some of it you can't. It is good to know the difference between the two. Also, many people in AA who don't believe in a god refer to their sponsor as their higher power.

Oh, and see you at mass on Friday. I'll finally be in town for one again! —WilliamLewis

2008-04-08 10:12:41   Thanks for the info. I will make my way over to the bike church this weekend or next weekend. —CalamityJanie

2008-06-13 18:34:59   I saw fishbike headed Eastbound on 3rd a week or so back... I also saw it parked near the minor stage near shields before whole earth —StevenDaubert

2008-07-24 20:44:40   whoa dude bro man guy

2008-07-25 14:59:14   I still like the futuristic minimalistic pxl look... —StevenDaubert

2008-07-31 11:04:25   Is the Fishbike coming out for the new moon ride this Friday? I hope so! let me know if you have a cycling sound projection system to elevate our sound. -Rainbow —RainbowVogt

2008-08-31 12:39:00   ORMF poster. Make it? —Darach

2008-11-02 08:39:05   what up pxl! —StevenDaubert

2008-11-03 10:06:31   I doubt I'm worse off than the millions of other omnivores out there. —MattBlair

2009-02-21 17:15:08   Hey Pxl!! It was great to meet you & everyone there at J-Street!! I am really excited about our possible future there & nervous about it as well, we'll see how it goes...if you or anyone else has anymore questions for us: tell them to feel free to call or email us!! Landon was really nervous (he is an introvert) & we both wondered how well you guys felt you got to know us from these 2 short contacts...so please ask if you guys wonder anything else!! See you soon!! —Christina & Landon —chrstnhwrd

2009-03-11 21:18:46   Beautiful picture! —PhilipNeustrom

2009-03-12 08:43:26   That image of the bike dome is incredibly well photographed. Nice work! —JabberWokky

2009-03-24 22:04:56   Thanks for explaining about the Bike Church changing its name. —NickSchmalenberger

2009-04-28 12:04:16   LOL! A classic from my high school days! Do you always check user's deleted comments section? —MasonMurray

2009-05-07 10:45:54   It took me some time to realize you were referring to my email. There are some good old baby jokes in my page from back in the day when I first created it. —MasonMurray

2010-01-22 02:42:50   The wiki certainly doesn't have to be NPOV but similar tactics apply to getting your point out there in a way that is acceptable to other collaborators. I think it really does make more sense, tactically, to let people draw their own conclusions about some things, because they very likely don't have all the background info that you do. Meanwhile you and other wiki people with knowledge of the situation can fill that in and things will become more clear without saying explicitly what they mean. I think there is still room for that sort of interpretation, not necessarily as comments even, but it has to be written carefully because of the collaborative process. —NickSchmalenberger

2010-01-27 09:10:59   pxl, your usually think things through more

This would only work if the co-op also boycotted American products, Israel can only do what they do because they get billions of dollars from the US. Sins of US == Sins of Israel or something like that

for that reason, BDS is a joke —StevenDaubert

2010-03-04 16:25:13   But "anarchy" just sounds cooler. —BrentLaabs

2010-04-01 08:35:31   (Check the calendar) —JabberWokky

2012-05-17 15:36:12   you hate the empire yet use Apple...

do you do music / video related stuff or are you just fanboying it with apple? —StevenDaubert

2012-05-30 10:31:22   Daubert, I used to to design work and really enjoy the mac interface. I buy used, and have only bought two in the last 20 years. I'm not a computer guy, otherwise I'd probably use something cooler. —PxlAted I know I figured you had some sort of photo / video editing in on the Mac front. I just like to give you grief cause in the 90's M$ and Bill Gates were the evil empire and apple and Jobs were heroes. Now Apple is the evil empire and Gates is giving all his money to charity... Life treats you okay?
