RT @MrFesser: What steps are being taken to identify officers and soldiers who shot and arrested journalists and people in their own homes? Will those people be relieved of duty for any amount of time? Face any consequences? What will those be? When, EXACTLY, can we expect to see them?

RT @MrFesser: I want to hear something concrete from @GovTimWalz today about how police misconduct last night is going to be addressed. Not "I'm sorry", or "I take responsibility", or (god help us) "We're going to send in more troops". Enough platitudes and escalation of force. CONSEQUENCES.

RT @kfaiFMradio: ask for accountability of Walz, Frey, Freeman et al on the clear and documented assaults on credentialed journalists and passive citizens following your orders to stay in their homes.

RT @kfaiFMradio: Aside from many suspicious vehicles, it was a much quieter evening than in other parts of the city.

RT @kfaiFMradio: Just a few of the West Bank neighbors who helped keep Cedar and Riverside secure and safe during last night's curfew. Nearly 30 people stayed awake and engaged with business owners and residents to make sure anyone observed in the neighborhood was there for good reason.

@kfaiFMradio Oh look, they deleted that tweet

30.5.20 17:42 Gotta say SOMETHING.

I took a drive to Roseville and Maplewood to do a really unimportant Amazon return and grab some supplies. I saw some national guard vehicles coming the other way on 280, but only a few. On my way back I diverted to Uptown to help move some friends to safer spaces. We took Hennepin down past Lake and marveled at the plywood, but were relieved to see that everything had also been cleaned up by so many good neighbours. Just so I could see it for myself, I took the slow way home from Uptown and went back up Lyndale towards 35W. You could call it the plywood district now. I hated to laugh at the ALREADY BEEN ROBBED graffiti but it was all I could do. As I got closer to my home, I don't know *why* I was surprised, but I still was surprised to see plywood all over Stadium Village as if a hurricane was coming. The Fresh Thyme was boarded up AND closed. Same with the Speedway. Then, I was surprised by what WASN'T boarded up. I'm still far enough off University that I feel relatively safe, but if somehow houses start becoming targets, who can say? I remain ready to drop everything and run to Cedar & Riverside but I think there will already be enough good people there and I won't be needed. If ANY of you feel unsafe, I have no problems sacrificing my nearly 15 year old car to bust you out. Tonight I'm on Messenger, Signal, WhatsApp, LINE, Signal and if you got some other app lemme know and I'll download THAT one too. Let's hope there isn't an invasion tonight but let's be ready if there is. Let's hope there isn't a war tonight but let's be prepared for one. Let's get through this storm. Let's keep our eyes on what's happening in front of us but let's also keep our eyes on what needs to change for a better future. Black lives matter. Keep wearing your masks and washing your hands. I love you all.

I'm too lazy to play my own records tonight so I'm going to let KFAI decide for me. In two hours, a special four hour block of metal will air during the "True Brit!" and "Shadow Planet" slots.

No matter what, have a good night... and "see" you tomorrow.

I've been nominated by Rissy Bird to post 10 favorite albums of all time in 10 days, in no particular order. Guidelines are only the albums that have deeply impacted me. Only the cover with no explanation and to nominate a friend to do the same every day.

I break chains, baby, but nominate yourself if you somehow haven't done this already. This is my second time around so without completely violating the "no explanation" rules, I'll just say this set of ten has deeply impacted me in a slightly different way. (10 of 10)

Watched the mayor's presser just now - I'm glad he asked why the murder cop isn't in jail. I wish he'd been a little stronger in talking about the accomplices-to-murder cops. I also wish he'd been slightly less deferential to the police regarding their overreaction to the protests last night, so as to prevent any recurrence of overreaction to future protest. I doubt his comments will lower the potential for future protest. I'm sure now isn't the time to make a comment like this, but I think I'd like to run for mayor again next year.
