    Default N O T O R I O U S :: A Pointless Game

    Did everyone stop playing/watching this game or are my posts really that terrible? Or maybe I'm just not a likable person? This game was on a roll, what happened? I like having destinations for lunch rides.

    Had a much more pressing Calvinball find than for the Salad Days item.

    What I had wanted to do there was to look beyond the obvious (9:30 club/etc) and look towards Dischord Records (in Ian's house on Beecher St), other venues (Madam's Organ in Adam's Morgan) or the roots of Bad Brains off R Street. I remember a time where the only place in DC that you could buy any of these albums (other than at a show) as either ElectroLux on M St, the GWU book store, or the Tower Records near GWU. That or to flush out any memorabilia (I have some Fugazi tickets and LPs that I was going to work into a shot)... but alas, gametime is short and I've got better things to do...

    I would have definitely liked your post over mine! I know my post for Bad Brains was haphazard (and deserved the dislike), but I was in a hurry to meet the Fam for my Sons birthday, and 930 club was close to the Landsburgh (which I thought was a decent spot for a photo for Minor Threat).
    BTW, The almighty Enchanter didn't award me the point for HR Bad Brains

    I think a good symbol of RBG's heritage, courage, and what she stands for in her position. No respecter of persons. Judge others equally and according to law. Committed to "not stand idly by." Also wanted to do something besides the Supreme Court. P.S. I borrowed a coworkers bike.

    Here is an excerpt from a speech she gave in 2004:
    "My heritage as a Jew and my occupation as a judge fit together symmetrically. The demand for justice runs through the entirety of Jewish history and Jewish tradition. I take pride in and draw strength from my heritage, as signs in my chambers attest: a large silver mezuzah on my door post, gift from the Shulamith School for Girls in Brooklyn; on three walls, in artists’ renditions of Hebrew letters, the command from Deuteronomy: “Zedek, zedek, tirdof” — “Justice, justice shall you pursue.” Those words are ever-present reminders of what judges must do that they “may thrive.”
    ...
    But today, here in the Capitol, the lawmaking heart of our nation, in close proximity to the Supreme Court, we remember in sorrow that Hitler’s Europe, his Holocaust Kingdom, was not lawless. Indeed, it was a kingdom full of laws, laws deployed by highly educated people—teachers, lawyers, and judges—to facilitate oppression, slavery, and mass murder. We convene to say "Never again," not only to Western history’s most unjust regime, but also to a world in which good men and women, abroad and even in the USA, witnessed or knew of the Holocaust Kingdom’s crimes against humanity, and let them happen.
    ...
    I was fortunate to be a child, a Jewish child, safely in America during the Holocaust. Our nation learned from Hitler’s racism and, in time, embarked on a mission to end law-sanctioned discrimination in our own country. In the aftermath of World War II, in the Civil Rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s, in the burgeoning Women’s Rights movement of the 1970s, "We the People" expanded to include all of humankind, to embrace all the people of this great nation. Our motto, E Pluribus Unum, of many one, signals our appreciation that we are the richer for the religious, ethnic, and racial diversity of our citizens.
    ...
    May the memory of those who perished remain vibrant to all who dwell in this fair land, people of every color and creed. May that memory strengthen our resolve to aid those at home and abroad who suffer from injustice born of ignorance and intolerance, to combat crimes that stem from racism and prejudice, and to remain ever engaged in the quest for democracy and respect for the human dignity of all the world’s people."

    I think so far that this post is what is the best period about Notorious... To me, this is the bar that should be set for a topic.

    Chapeau Benihana... Chapeau.

    Thanks PeteD. I put some more thought into this one than Bad Brains. I have been enjoying learning more about many of these topics, even if I don't get the point.
