Hi X
about finding an organization, I know a place you could check out and that they (the kids should check out as well) Its call Twin Cities Underground. It's a teen center (by the way, how old are the kids?)all run and paid by parents and neighborhoods... It's on LakeSt and GrandAve in Minneapolis.
I know the President there.... Her name is Wendy. If you want, I can introduce you to her and her organization. So you can introduce the parents and the kids to the organization... ???

You guys rock. I wish I could get involved over here a little more, but I've already got a lot of volunteer work on my plate and I'm stretched a bit thin.

X - contacting other established organizations might be the way to go - at the very least they might have a person willing to come out to the Stevens neighborhood once a week to do art with the kids or take them to the MIA, etc. until you can get an SSCO arts program up and running.

BTW - have you looked into community education for the kids? Classes are *SUPER cheap, and I think only $5 if you are very poor or receiving state aid. Lots of good, constructive, creative stuff in there.

Yeah, isn't that f*ing rediculous? Have you seen the MPAA "stealing movies is bad" trailer at the beginning of certain films? If I were parents, I would be pissed that my kids school is allowing this mind-washing corporate bullshit is allowed to sneak into our public schools under the guise of Junior Achievement> Ugh. Sorry for the strong language - I am strongly against the current copyright legislation that reduces our fair use privileges and restricts both our access to information and all types of non-infringing access to copyrighted works. Maybe I should start a thread?

BTW, nice to see you posting again.

Ahhh wheres my laughing in tears smily face??!!! You just amplifyed my laughing fit x500.

"MP3s of Kid Rock's music were so widely traded and downloaded by Napster users that he was driven back to the mean streets from whence he came, dying bankrupt and penniless in the gutter."
When found by police, the 28-year-old Kid Rock, born Bob Ritchie in Detroit, was still clutching the cardboard "Devil Without A Place To Sleep Or Anything To Eat" sign that had been his trademark ever since the rise of Napster's MP3-sharing software bankrupted him in January.

HAHAHAHA! IMA piss my damn pants.

It strikes me as something a guilty entity does. Point the finger of acusition away from themselves. THEY ARE THE THEIVES! Hipocrite logic. I remember a few years ago the discusion....acctualy the disscusion has allways been about major lables ripping off artists, hmmm yeah I remember now. DYI punk rock 101. Major lables screw you on royalties way worse then teen kids, new fans who sincerly love the music, ever could. Remember? we were all going "16-18 bucks for a CD!?? What the hell??" So of course the way to go is artist direct. No middle pimps. They were ripping people and artists off so bad, they deserve to fail their business models. Buy directly from the artists and watch them disolve. So then their only hope becomes political because they have the bankroll to loby and manipulate law makers. I can't belive they are suing ISPs too! Telling ISPs it's illegal to suport file sharing! DAMNIT HOW AM I GOING TO GET ANY DISTRIBUTION AT ALL?? It you really are a starving artist RIAA doesn't come to your rescue, you save yourself. So now that communications chanel is outlawed? Just who is in the RIAA anyway so I know who to boycot and artists know who not to sign with?
Time to research this.
TAKE BACK YOUR TIME!!
TAKE BACK YOU ART.
Never again. Let those dinosaurs die. We should all sue THEM! Has the sentance "class action law suit against the RIAA" ever been typed?
Uh, google that = yep, 7 times. Well let the record show this is #8. It's time.
Some heads are going to rolll.

<<<But executives at major Internet companies contend that the subpoenas the RIAA uses to gain the identity of suspected infringers are too broad

"Congress hasn't given this broad a power to the government to investigate terrorism," said Bob Barr, Verizon general council and former attorney general. "Why does the recording industry get this power?"

Cary-Sue has a lot of nerve thinking it's a "good thing for the country". Putting people in debt/bankrupcty is never good during a recession.. as fas as I know. ~gecko7

This is my question also, why do they get more power than the government???? this non sense needs to stop, and os for 20% in layoffs welcome to the recession RIAA, so stop crying about it>>>>

If you have a food stamp card you can get a discount at the science museums omi-theather. 2 bucks to see a huge educational movie. Highly recomended.
