Launch of terra, not terror

I have left The Chief Source to start my own blog - terra, not terror.

terra, not terror will discuss environmental progress going on around the world. I like to keep up on efforts to create a sustainable, less expensive, safe, energy-efficient place to live. And I love doing whatever I can to save money, energy, and resources, so I'll show you my ideas, too.

This will be a positive space for us to share what we're doing to reduce our footprint. I hope you enjoy reading about efforts to help our planet.

I plan to write something at least once a week. -that's a lot of progress!- I imagine this page will evolve over time, and I hope you check back once in a while to see what fun things are going on in the "green" world.

The name?
When Bush talks about the "war on terror," it usually sounds like "war on terra," which I jokingly take offense to. (Terra is Latin for Earth, and is also my name) Whether a war on the planet is actually his strategy is open for debate. We should focus on living in harmony with the earth, not living in fear.

Kerry Clawson Back Online

And so am I for that matter. After a bit of travel-inspired non-GABBing, I'm back into this.

Meanwhile, ABJ theatre critic Kerry Clawson's blog has been silent for a long time. Like no posts in May long. She's back with a long post that includes a rundown of the tech rehearsal of Unbeatable, a play about breast cancer. Also, she gives news about a A Narrow Bridge, a play in the works by a Cleveland-based playwrite.

On Life Support: Dodie's

Just went down to Dodie's for what I thought would be my last meal there (and the last time I waited forever for food there). But apparently they were given an extension, until perhaps the 22nd of June.

In that time frame, Two Amigos may cease to be an issue if it goes into foreclosure.

Next time on As Highland Square Turns...
The laze-abouts outside Angel Falls taunt a girl-jeans wearing hipster into a brutal game of hackey sack.

More on Akron's Dirty Book Business

Scene Magazine runs a portrait of Elora's Cave founder Tina Engler. Apparently she doesn't just publish "romantica," she invented the subgenre and started self-publishing online when her first dirty book was rejected by every traditional romance publisher.

I first covered Elora's Cave on GABB here.

Red Light Galleries

In Akron is the place to be ‘till June 17. Don’t miss the chance to view and purchase some of the (woefully underpriced) work of Boring Daughter #2!!

Extra Special Garbage Week!

So this is Akron Garbage Amnesty Week, whereupon you can set out just about anything and the boys, and occasional lady, in fluorescent yellow pennies will toss it in their truck.

This act of amnesty, though, apparently taxed our sanitary warriors because when I came home today my city-approved-must-be-facing-the-right-direction-or-we-won't-touch-it trash can was in not in front of my house. Nope, it was visiting the neighbor's.

New Stuff

I've added some folks to the blogroll. I still run across Akron from time to time and for the most part they go up automatically. Some have been up for a while, one I just found. So here's the rundown.

Am Fem is the domain of Angela, young woman with some apparent web design chops who runs a mostly personal blog. It's compelling, especially as she has some pretty trying life circumstances.

Angela set up a blog for her fiance Chris called Crovin. He seems not to have the fire in the belly -- he hasn't posted since April 29. We'll keep an eye on that one.

Derek offers A Subset of Derek. As he puts it, "An incomplete account of my life, thoughts and feelings."

Andrew Shears runs the boards at Radio Free Ohio. He's a Ph.D. student in Geography at the U.

Check them out and enjoy.
