Arnieville in Berkeley CA

May 22, 2010

Activists in Berkeley set up a tent city called “Arnieville” to protest recent budget cuts in CA.

Berkeley Daily Planet, Jane Stillwater’s blog, and Smirking Chimp have permission to reprint any of these photos.

Berkeley Daily Gazette

May 21, 2010

Some folks think that things change.  Some don’t.  Folks from both sides might make points by pointing out this copy (seen in the window of a bike shop on Telegraph Ave.) of the Berkeley Daily Gazette from the early seventies.

That paper is part of Berkeley History.  Another student protest (hunger strike) was in the news earlier this month.

Do things change?

Bukowski night in Berkeley

May 19, 2010

David Calonne, editor of the new Bukowski collection titled “Absence of the Hero” was at Moe’s Books in Berkeley Tuesday (May 18, 2010) night, to promote the new book.

Both Berkeleyside and Berkeley Daily Planet have permission to use this photo on their web sites.

This isn’t computer science

May 19, 2010

Apparently different cermonies were held Monday at UCB.  This was the one for Integrated Biologoy and not the one for computer science.

Another Photo for Ray W.

May 14, 2010

This sign is not on the wall of the employee lounge at the World’s Laziest Journalist’s home office (we wish it were).  It is posted on the wall where tours at the Nethercutt Museum begin and that gives us a legitimate reason for calling Jalopnik’s photo editor’s attention to this post.  When Jalopnik ran an item linking to one of our posts about the 2009 SummerNats in Canberra, they sent several hundred new readers our way.  Will lightening strike twice?

Seen in Berkeley

May 11, 2010

In the old days, we would have taken a photo of this sign seen in Berkeley on Tuesday, May 11, 2010, and tried to sell it as a feature photo to AP.  We’ll send the link to the Berkeley Daily Planet and give them permission to use this photo of what we think is a humorous sentiment.  (Did an Aussie post it?)

Australian Philosophy in Berkeley

May 11, 2010

This sign, seen Tueday, May 11, 2010, in Berkeley CA expresses an anti-gun sentiment.  Was it posted by an Aussie?  We’ll send the URL to Berkeleyside and give them permission to use this frame on their site.

Tuesday Hunger Strike update

May 11, 2010

On Tuesday, May 11, 2010, the site of the Berkeley Students’ Hunger Strike had reverted to normal.

Back to Berkeley Car-spotting

May 11, 2010

Between taking photos Monday in the rain and Tuesday morning in the bright sunny Berkeley morning, we got a wee bit of car-spotting done.  We saw this Comet on Shattuck.

Hunger Strike Update Photos

May 11, 2010

The Student Hunger Strike at UCB looked much different on Monday, May 10, 2010, than it did last Friday.  On Tuesday this area of the campus had returned to “normal.”
