The name is Bryan... Wear it out all you want. :P I am crazy, eccentric, and an enigma even to myself. I am an activist and member of the ISO (International Socialist Organization) as well as The Coalition to End Rape Culture at Umass. I am a certified rape crisis counselor and an educator advocate at the Center for Women and Community. I am interested in psychology and want to get into some sort of human services field. Some of my hobbies are drawing, writing poetry, rapping, doing spoken word, making jewelry and performing. I do lots of meditation. I have an interesting set of beliefs mixing Marxism, Buddhism, Taoism, and Atheism. I enjoy listening to political talks and Dharma talks. I also burn a lot of fucking incense! If you want to know anything else about me, just ask! :]

Music: I am a fan of old hip hop and underground hip hop. I love punk, rock, ska, jazz, blues, soul, motown, funk, reggae, metal, folk. I am very picky about country music. I like Johnny Cash and country music from the 1920's. I like music from Latin America such as Bomba music. I also like music from the East and Middle East. I like Buddhist chanting and singing bowls. I like tribal music too. I also like chain gang prison songs. They are so raw and emotional with the simple singing and rhythmic banging of hammers. I just love music!

Books: I enjoy political non fiction mostly. I also enjoy books on Taoism, Buddhism, and eastern philosophies even though I am not really religious. I love poetry as well: Plath, Poe, Ginsberg, Rumi, Kerouac, Jim Morrison's written poetry, Bukowski, Whitman, Chaucer, Saul Williams, Shakespeare's sonnets, Thoreau, William S. Burroughs, Neal Cassady, Mark Twain, Charles Baudelaire

Above all else, be yourself. Don't try to impress people. It leads to exaggerations of who you are. That exaggeration won't last. You have nothing to prove, other than that you are a perfectly flawed individual who is awesome in your own ways and fucked up in your own ways too. Lets remove our masks... I am not here to impress any of you, and if you want to impress me do so by not being ashamed of your flaws. I see beauty in all of our uglies and the strength it gives us all to be beautiful even with our demons. What is beauty without the ugliness? If we are friends, I will make you happy. If we are friends, I will drop the ball and upset you.... Perfectly imperfect.... fucked up and beautiful....

Deir Yassin: The Agony - Israel/Palestine

NEVER FORGET! 

David Rovics - Jenin

The only way to stop more killings of innocent Afghans is to end the occupation.

3 Years have gone since the death and destruction of Operation Cast Lead, when Israel once again showed its true colours and massacred the people of Gaza for 22 days, between 27th December 2008 to January 18th 2009.

3 years on, the Israelis continue with their shameless lies, that the operation was all about stopping home made rockets being fired from Gaza. Yet, they don’t tell you, that the year before the operation started, rocket fire from Gaza was reduced by 97%, as there was a truce between Hamas and Israel. Israel then duly broke the ceasefire on November 4th 2008, in an unprovoked attack killing 6 Hamas members, they then began to severely restrict humanitarian aid coming into Gaza from 123 trucks daily to 16 daily. When Hamas responded, Israel claimed an all out war was now unavoidable, but didn’t mention this war was being planned for some months in advance.”

Remembering Cast Lead

‎3 years ago this week, Israel launched an attack on Gaza killing 1,400 Palestinians; 13 Israelis were killed, most were soldiers, 4 from friendly fire. Zionists call it a war, antiracists call it a massacre. And the Siege of Gaza continues to this day.

US covering up war crime evidence in Afghanistan?

A decade ago an Afghan war lord took control of thousands of prisoners from US forces. While under the control of General Abdul Rashid Dostum, a US ally, witnesses say thousands suffocated to death after being crammed into metal containers or shot to death on the way to a prison near Sheberghan, Afghanistan. Did the US play a role in the matter? Nathaniel Raymond, former lead investigator for Physicians for Human Rights, visited the site twice and tells us what they found.

Although the Image that Israel distributes about herself is that of an oppressed nation, it is with heavy hearts that we present these crimes that stand for themselves for the brutality of the Israeli Army and the heartlessness of its soldiers who seem to have a thirst for blood. It is for the hope that the world may see a clearer picture that we present these painful facts. It is interesting to notice that today’s media does not dwell on these crimes as they do on the Holocaust. They are reported in the news for a week or two and then swept into the sea of oblivion. Those who attempt to revive the true history of Israel are charged of being anti-Semitic. So with the hope to keep those memories in mind we present this shameful history of  Israel that seems to have found that the role of Goliath is more interesting than that of David.”
