- Thin Gruel with Bison: Ann Arbor Folk Music Forty Years Ago
The death of Pete Seeger (1919-2014) got me thinking about folk music in Ann Arbor, Michigan, 1970-73.
- Joanne Gillies' Right to Live: Hard Times and Love on YouTube

- Mike Kelley at PS1: Dark Humor Unseats All Rules and Restraints
Kelley challenges cultural politics and the status quo directly, gender and identity within self and object relations, artistic techniques and forms. Recontextualizing meaning through the alterations of familiar, mundane low-brow imagery and ideas, he unseats social constructions.
- The MC5 Build to a Gathering
Which was a rock n’ roll rebellion, you know?
- Power Garb of Female Expression at Burning Man
Clothing in a definite alternative style.
