Snow Ghost news
Snow Ghost (by Cindy Brennan)The new Snow Ghost CD, “Despair, Death, and Redempshire,” is out. You can listen to it at the Internet Archive, or order a $10 ppd. copy at the Snow Ghost homepage.

We’re having the record release party tonight at Pizza Hut (Bruce’s brilliant idea). The attendees will be disproportionately vegan, and one of them pointed out to me that the only vegan stuff at Pizza Hut is the crushed red pepper and pizza sauce. “They put milk in things it seems you couldn’t put milk in.”

Jacob wrote a nice description of the Snow Ghost Community Show debut party at the Catholic Worker house. “the snow ghost’s connection with them is peculiar, in that he is a self-avowed ‘satanic warrior’, but i guess they can still respect each other by virtue of being on the same coin, if opposite sides.”

Worcester Wal-Mart news
The Zoning Board of Appeals was supposed to hear a petition against the Wal-Mart this week, but because of a recent change in the zoning laws, they had to turn down this particular petition. They’ll likely hear the petition after a building permit is issued, which turns it back into an issue they can rule on.

You can listen to the discussion as an mp3 or in other formats.

City Council candidate websites

Just added Joe Casello’s site to the list.

Indiana, here I come

I’m leaving Worcester in a couple days to spend the summer at the South Bend Catholic Worker, and was planning to write an article on Pie and Coffee with a bunch of suggestions on what Worcester Magazine can do to improve, because I know editor Michael Warshaw reads (but doesn’t really like) my commentary on his magazine. But last week the T&G reported that Mr. Warshaw is leaving WoMag to edit a semiweekly paper in Framingham. Good luck and godspeed. Of the three major media outlets in Worcester, WoMag was the only one that doesn’t make a regular habit of insulting its readers’ intelligence, and if I’ve written lots about the things I don’t like in it, it’s because I like it enough to want to see it be even better.

Interesting comment on th T&G article from WoMag copy editor Lester Paquin. He points out four errors in the article, none of which were in the on-line version by the time I saw it. Does the T&G make on-line corrections without noting them? So it seems.

    It looks like if you became a meat-eating dairy-non-eater, you could eat the hot wings.

    Y’know, it’s kinda cool that these big corporate chains at least make this type of information available. They sure didn’t do this back in the old days. I have a big fear that if I were to visit Europe I’d end up getting in a fistfight with a waiter over my requirement not to eat mayonnaise.

    Observations like that are the reason I read Jake’s blog.
