walking downtown singing a song the other night, happy mood, on the way to the Olympia Film Society at the Capitol Theater to see the film, "Margin Call." I enjoyed the film. An interesting portrayal of some of the depraved behavior in the financial industry, and the misbehavior of one fictional company. I can imagine that truth might be stranger than fiction on this —and that some of the real behavior and politics in and around the financial industry might even be richer than what was shown in this film.
It also has been recommended to watch the MF Global hearings on CSPAN.

Hello. Queer Rock Camp is currently accepting applications. Camper and Volunteer applications are available online at stonewallyouth.org/queerrockcamp . Campers and Volunteers have been signing up from across the country, so apply today!
Queer Rock Camp is Stonewall Youth's newest summer program and is happening this August!! Queer Rock Camp is a tuition-free, week-long music program for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, and asexual youth and their allies, ages 12-21. Based on the model of Girls Rock Camp, QRC aim to empower youth, giving them a voice, building confidence, fostering creative individual growth and supportive collaborative relationships. In one week campers learn basic skills on the instrument of their choice, form bands, write an original song, and perform to a public audience at Olympia's historic Capital Theater. Camp is being hosted by Lincoln Options Elementary school and all meals are provided.
Donations to support Queer Rock Camp can be made online through stonewall youth by specifying QRC in the "designations" section. Thanks Olympia!
OLYMPIA MUSICIANS PARTNER WITH CRISIS CLINIC
Local music release to benefit vital non-profit
OLYMPIA, Washington (May 18, 2011) The Crisis Clinic of Thurston and Mason Counties is partnering with Olympia musicians to create an album of local music as a fundraiser for Crisis Clinic services. More than twelve Olympia musicians and bands have offered their recordings to the project, including Baker London, Kendl Winter, Pitted Youth, Hot Rush, Angelo Spencer, Matty Harris, Hari Kari, The Family Stoned, Margy Pepper, The Blackberry Bushes Stringband and Eleanor Murray. Artist Nikki McClure has donated artwork.
While many have donated their art to this project, it needs community support to proceed. Funds for printing are being raised on Kickstarter.com, a funding platform for artistic projects. On Kickstarter, an individual (or “backer”) pledges a certain amount to help fund a project; the project is only funded (and backers are only charged) if the project reaches its funding goal by a certain date. This project, Shot in Time: Olympia Music 2011, needs $475 by June 6th in order to receive funds. All backers receive a reward; for example, the reward for a $10 donation is a copy of the album.
To back this project, please go to Kickstarter.com and search “Olympia music”, or visit: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rosieharris/shot-in-time-olympia-music-2011?ref=live
