JOSS ON VERONICA MARS WEDS!




BIG NEWS: JOSS WHEDON GUEST STARS ON VERONICA MARS, WEDS NOV. 9th, 2005 9pm *UPN*

From the beautiful insiders over at tvguide.com: Think of the trend as "once more, with feeling." This TV season Buffy the Vampire Slayer alums are proving there's more to life than slaying vamps. Here, their old boss, creator Joss Whedon, weighs in on his old gang's brand-new gigs.
Joss Whedon Cheers on Buffy Alumni

He's *mostly* right about Bones, it is NOT Angel at the FBI, though it's scary enough to almost be. After being annoyed by the pilot of Bones, I'm now willing to conceed that the show is WELL WORTH watching. I didn't dig the female lead at first, but the chemistry is good it's just really quirky.

Joss called Veronica Mars, "the best show ever".
Season 1 of Veronica Mars is excellent, the pilot is one of the best things I've ever seen (cried like a baby)...

Lost: Veronica Mars?

"I wish that the juggernaut that is 'Lost' wasn't our direct competition," says "Mars" creator Rob Thomas. "The flip side of that is UPN gave us their number-one time slot [after 'America's Next Top Model']. I just pray that the people with the TiVOs watch us and tape the other show, because we need it.

"I've got friends who write for 'Lost,' and I say [to them], 'You don't have to suck much, just suck enough to lose two million viewers.'"

Thomas' friends are writing partners Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis. Regarding Thomas' comments, Horowitz replies, "Eddy and I would be happy to respond. We love Rob. We LOVE 'Veronica Mars.' So we decided to run the 'just suck enough' idea past our boss, [executive producer] Damon Lindelof. He responded with what we think is a fair counter proposal. We will ship two million 'Lost' viewers over to 'Veronica Mars' ASAP. But on one condition ... Rob must rename the show 'Lost: Veronica Mars.' It's time to franchise up, bbby."

STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY

STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY

By thefayth, BiNet USA President
With additional edits/support from Juba Kalamka, BiNet USA VP

Bisexual communities have been notified of my intent to remove my networks, support and help from those who center white supremacy or practice trans exclusionary radical feminism. Simply put, I do not believe bisexual exclusionary communities (or beci's) to represent the bisexual community.

When I emailed, messaged and tweeted at "Jayne Shea" and messaged her last Tuesday, I did so because I'd seen Seattle continuing to thrive with TERF's, or people who exclude trans people.

It occurred to me, that the same group reported to BiNet USA for allowing cis only women was possibly closely associated with Jayne Shea; this has now been confirmed. And now the rest is history, Black-bisexual-intersex-trans history as I, thefayth, recently became more public in my transition from assumed cis female to known intersex trans multi-gender…

No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag

No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag
(but people I knew said I did, so did "the news")
By the artist formerly known as Faith Cheltenham, and the activist formerly known as thefayth

With my stepping away from bisexual community; I am returning home to those who love me; not something always found in bisexual, or LGBTQIA communities. The true upheaval for me personally is most profound in that I turn away from the concept of giving, entirely. thefayth is no more as I must admit I have no faith in humans, if I ever did. Further, I decline to serve with my body, my mind or spirit to provide such faith to humans without benefit to me first and always.

My bigger shame? Direct donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to advocacy between 2004-2017 focused on bi communities worldwide, while also working for free at same time; I should have picked one or the other!

My shame is particular, in that I feel, I may have been treated better if I’d been giving only to peopl…

DEATH OF KHALIL LAWAL BY PHILLY COP JAMES POWELL 

PHOTO OF KHALIL FROM www.socialistalternativephl.org
On January 29th, 2018, after accidentally hitting a pedestrian, Khalil Lawal was approached by Philadelphia Police Officer James Powell—who was off duty at the time—and shot 15 times mere seconds after the encounter. James Powell shot Khalil first at point blank range and then several more times as Khalil was already laid on the ground.

Khalil was unarmed and had not been committing any crimes when Powell approached him from behind with his gun already in hand. Khalil was shot directly in his left eye, his temple, his neck, chest and legs but succumbed to his injuries almost 2 hours after the incident.

In April, the Lawal family discovered that the Philadelphia Police Dept. still had not taken a statement from Powell—about 3 months following the s…
