This post is more of an observation than a complaint. I am glad that we have business owners who aren't slaves to schedules and have the freedom to close whenever they want to. However, these extended vacations undermine my effort to make a habit of supporting local businesses. It is easier to support businesses with reliable schedules and make downtown a second, unscheduled stop.
The Holiday 2011 Athens Indie Craftstravaganzaa is happening Saturday December 3rd this year from 10am til 6pm at Ben's Bikes, 670 West Broad at the corner of N. Pope Street. We are so excited about our new location that we decided to add even more features to make this the best event ever. In addition to our usual tunes from DJ Mahoghany, we will include a few live performances from acoustic acts Coconut Moon and Matthew Garrison. There will be art cars and live art demos from local toy maker Chris Purcell. Gretchen Elsner will head up the clothing Swap O Rama Rama, a workshop that gives people an opportunity to re-construct their old clothing into something brand new! There will be no need to leave to go get lunch, because Farm cart will join us to provide locally grown, sustainable eats and Ursa Minor from Atlanta will be on hand with hot drinks and tasty pastries. Of course you'll also find the largest selection of handmade arts and crafts, from jewelry and fashion to paintings and photographs, cute stuff for your pets, and lots more. See you there!

We the administrators of your friendly neighborhood Drinking Liberally - Athens were thinking the other day: "What do we think of the Occupy Movement?" (Full disclosure: We didn't all think this out loud at the same time or manifest psychic powers). We talked about it for a bit and we came to the same conclusion...
We like it.
There are protests like it in over 900 cities worldwide. Nine hundred cities worldwide.
Whether you call yourself liberal, conservative or the Rent Too Damn High guy we all agree with one thing: It certainly feels like the process and the power have been pulled out of our hands.
That is in the interest of everyone.
That is in short what the Occupy Movement is about.
If you cannot stand out with the group at the Arches, on Wall Street or where ever, what can you do?
Well there is still a lot. We feel like a lot of good can come from it.
Please join us at Little Kings this Thursday at 7. We're going to talk about where we might go from here. We need others who are interested in moving forward to join us. Not in some kind of crazy way. With civility & justice. We will succeed. It's just better if you are there.
All are welcome. Forward this invite. Spread the word. See you later

Here is what you can do about it. You can be open-minded to the message that our country is experiencing a severe economic problem right now. Jobs are not like coconuts lying on the ground waiting to be picked up. From my professional prospective, I can tell you that in the Athens area there are talented, hardworking people who have been employed in successful positions and run multimillion-dollar businesses but are now shut out of the economy, either desperately underemployed or desperately searching for any job whatsoever.
You might tell them to "Get a job, a**hole," but I guarantee you they have already thought of that. I have no simple solutions to propose, and the Occupy Wall Street movement has a hopeless and absurdly long litany of grievances, but one message to be heard is that we need rational, open-minded debate in our society, not epithets and platitudes.
The news has got my head spinning. Occupy Wall St gathering more protesters & the spotlight everyday, the whole Republican nomination process & all of its characters (almost lost in the news cycle Palin announces she will not run), the Koch Brothers sales to Iran you can see why I'm dizzy.
Which makes me want to have a beer, sit with some nice people & talk about it. We have a topic prepared but Occupy Wall Street & it's local off shoots will probably hold our attention. Especially since they'll be in protest and hopefully in full force a few blocks away.
But the back up topic is basically how much do we compromise to get something, anything done? Discussion, about Occupy Wall Street or political deadlock is open to everyone and anyone who's willing to have a discussion with a civil tongue. For you right wingers that means "From the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks." Look it up
The only way to make it all worth while is for you to make an appearance, share a drink and a laugh and a thought or two. See you at 7 Thursday Oct 6th, Little Kings Shuffle Club.
Let's get the word out. Thanks

Lecture: October 3rd, 2011, 5:00 PM
ON RIVALRY AND RETRIBUTION: SACRIFICE AND RITUAL IN THE ART OF PAUL PFEIFFER
Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, Morning after the Deluge, Fragment of a Crucifixion: if Paul Pfeiffer’s titles are any indication, his is an art deeply engaged with Judeo-Christian narratives. But to what end, these thematics and the analogies they engender? Indeed, what do game shows and athletes have to with crucifixions and apocalypses? And what might it mean to align contemporary culture with these biblical narratives and themes?
Drawing on the work of literary critic René Girard, this paper considers the work of Paul Pfeiffer with an eye to these questions, arguing that Pfeiffer establishes compelling parallels between various biblical narratives and aspects of contemporary-culture as defined (and dominated) by technology’s omniscient and all-seeing eyes. Fleshing out the comparison Pfeiffer seems to make between the vengeful eye of an all-seeing, Old Testament God and our own culture’s relentless surveillance by mass and new media, I suggest that Pfeiffer also aligns various biblical sacrifices – namely, the Old Testament sacrifice of the word by flood, and subsequently, in the New Testament, the sacrifice of Jesus by God – with the contemporary sacrifice of the world (or more accurately, reality) by new technologies that have radically restructured our relation to both time and space. Arguing that Pfeiffer thus sets the stage for a new interpretation of new media, I suggest that he treats new media as an enactment of dynamics at the very heart of the Judeo- Christian tradition, perhaps for the purpose of decatheting the primal trauma described therein.
The Athens Chapter of Drinking Liberally is happy to announce former U.S. House of Representatives candidate and local attorney Russell Edwards will be attending this week's meeting a very special guest.
Mr Edwards ran against Paul Broun Jr. in 2010 touting a message of unity and common sense during a particularly difficult election cycle. In addition he co-hosts a radio program called "True South" with Neal Priest on WGAU 1340 AM, Saturday mornings at 10.
Mr Edwards will be available to discuss his experiences in the election and the political world from a first hand perspective and what we can do to push forward for constructive change. He'll be accompanied by his fiance, local business owner (and force to be reckoned with in her own right) Airee Hong, owner of Agora.
Drinking Liberally - Athens is happy to host the event at the usual location, Little Kings Shuffle Club 223 W Hancock Ave. Thursday September 1st, 7 pm.
All of any political persuasion are invited. Should be a fun night. Please forward or repost as you like. Tell your friends and family. See you there.

years of regrettable exercise videos, 20 years of insulting training videos, 20 years of forsaken home movies -- all in a one-of-a-kind, one-night-only celebration of video obscurities and live comedy at AthFest."""
(from xanadu gallery...)
We have a commercial client looking for a mid-size bronze sculpture (approx. 5 ft. tall x 5 ft. wide x 2 ft. deep) that would have appeal to a western rural/Native American clientele. Subject matter could include a horse and rider.
The owner of the business is only interested in very a realistic, traditional style. No contemporary/abstract works would be of interest.
The budget is approximately $25,000 retail. (Xanadu's commission is 40% for the project.)
If you have or know of any bronzes that might fit the above criteria, please email images, dimensions, and retail price to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don't have a piece that will work but know someone who might? Please pass this email on.

Friends of the Athens-Clarke County Library is a non-profit organization that advocates on behalf of the library and helps supplement library funding shortfalls. Funds raised by Friends help the library to better serve and enrich our community by making available free information, education, entertainment, and literacy activities for library patrons. In the current economy, use of the library has heavily increased (books, periodicals, movies, activities), but library funding has not increased, so Friends activities will be more important than ever.
If you are interested in working on the friends board, please come to our meeting Tuesday to see what we do and then, if you are interested, put your name forward as a nominee.
If you can't find the time to work on the Friends Board but wish to become a member of the Friends non-profit organization, the online membership form can be downloaded from the link above or at: http://www.clarke.public.lib.ga.us/arls/support/fotl_membershipform.pdf
