Tim Wise: on Newsweek’s “Beached White Male”

Tim Wise is an antiracist, author and educator. Recently he spoke in Jamaica Plain, hosted by Community Change, a non-profit organization dedicated to racial justice. Justin was there and rolling. Because Tim posted the clip on his blog, it has received thousands of views and controversial comments.

Tim writes, ”Here is a brief video clip from my recent appearance at a fundraiser for Community Change, in Boston. I am discussing the recent Newsweek cover story about the recession and “beached white males,” and the way the authors missed the real story. It’s not that white men are the hardest hit in this recession–they aren’t by a long shot–but because of privilege and entitlement, they have had the hardest time coping with the exigencies of an imploding economy…sadly, instead of using the experience to foment solidarity with folks of color, many are missing the larger lessons…”

Feast Mass: Micro-Funding in good taste

Our friends Nerissa Cooney and Alex Hage (Golden Arrows) helped found Feast Mass. It’s a dinner party supported by local farms and businesses. The meal is delicious – well worth the $10 entry fee (including beer and ice cream). But the best part is that all of the proceeds make a small community project happen.

The winner of Feast 3 was Charlotte Huffman of Girls Who Rock, an after school program in need of electric guitars. Many of the guests who voted for this project said they did because they knew the $500 would really accomplish something for this organization.

If you want to go to Feast Mass you’re going to need to keep an eye on their website because it fills up fast. The next Feast Mass will be on Saturday, May 21, 7-10pm. If you want to get on the waiting list write to: feastmass@gmail.com

Thinkside Branding: Rethink Music Foot Soldier

When Berklee College of Music, Harvard Business School, and Midem united for the Rethink Music Conference, Ben Spear of Thinkside (thinkside.com) designed an innovative brand to express their vision. The goal of Rethink Music is “to foster creativity and a thriving music industry,” by bringing all of the stakeholders from around the world to the table. Spear’s versatile brand design represents the spark of coalition partners calling for industry innovation to support the next generation of professional musicians.

Thinkside’s brand guidelines and logo help the conference to build buzz. This video goes with Spear to see how it looks in its varied forms from street stencils to posters and subway ads.

April 25-27, Hynes Convention Center, Boston
rethink-music.com “Rethink Music is a solutions-focused conference, bringing together all sides and viewpoints on the subjects of creativity, commerce, and policy to engage in critical dialogue examining the business and rights challenges facing the music industry in the digital era, and to formulate ideas for the creation and distribution of new music and other creative works. The event, presented in association with the Berkman Center for Internet and Society and Harvard Business School, is the result of a research collaboration studying business models and copyright and how they impact the recorded music industry.”

VIDEO: Honk Festival 2009

Saturday October 10, 2009: The fourth annual HONK Festival brought together activist street bands from around the world to celebrate the power of making noise in Somerville, MA. Brisk, sunny, fall weather – I set out in Davis Square to capture HONK as an exploration of sound with my Olympus LS-10 audio recorder. Interviewing bands about the relationship between activism and street music, I found a range of responses from a-political artists who oppose categorization to players with very specific peace and justice commitments.

The imaginary wall between performer and audience doesn’t exist at HONK. Crowds freely interact with the bands who are playing simultaneously around the city in allies, squares and parks.

When the little girl featured here was gearing up to give her dollar, I busted out my iPhone and used the video function for the first time. Though the scene was too loud to get decent audio through the iPhone (with no control over the levels), the pocket-cam is matched with more stable sound from my LS-10 recording.
