Glad you're here Jesse! It's the third night of curfew in Los Angeles. "New future" sounds good. This Brother Ah is soothing.

hi everybody! really happy to be here hanging tonight. this is hopefully the last time i'll ever ask this, but: i can't really look at social media while doing this. if there are outside world updates you feel worth sharing, please share.

The only real info I'm getting is from the activists and organizations who are also out there cooperatively working on effecting change in this world. The news media is not doing this moment justice...
  9:15pm JakeGould:

@jj: Well, you know about the curfew in NYC? 11pm to 5am thanks to trustafarian white kids looting stores in SoHo hours after peaceful protest? Also NYPD is doubling the patrol size from 4,000 to 8,000 and they are all on 12 hour (!!!) shifts. And if somehow this does not work, Cuomo has vowed to send the National Guard to NYC.

And hyperlocal to the East Village — which I know you know — this video of a local resident flipping out on rioters is everything as the kids say. Filmed on 2nd Avenue near 7th near the theater that shows “Stomp” at. www.instagram.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16pm jj.:

yup, know about the curfew for sure, was alerted on my cell phone.
  9:17pm JakeGould:

Drumpf also had protestors in D.C. tear-gassed so he could walk to a local boarded up church and pose for photos with an upside down bible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm jj.:

to be clear, my request pertains to breaking news currently happening, not the past few hours. things that may've happened since i got on the air.

and i'd be happier if there were no updates at all, but just sayin'. also @jakegould & @sally & @richy4619 & anybody else, thanks for listening. nice to have some company.

@jj. Then your wish is granted! No new horrors to report.

Where is that Central Parl Mandarin duck tho?

very glad you found your way here, @otto!
  9:35pm Sally:

@Jake, FYI-CNN just reported that the Bishop of Washington Diocese was "outraged" by that Drumpf photo-op. It was at a church in one of her diocese, and she said Drumpf's message and actions were "antithetical" to Jesus' teachings. She added the protestors "are rightfully demanding an end to 400 years of systemic racism and white supremacy in our country." Wow..
  9:36pm h:

hi, I understand and that we are living in unprecedented times and my petty concern here is of absolutely no consequence. That being said I was really looking forward to getting my Hits From the Cloud v.5 from the pledge drive to, you know, help me and my family get through these difficult and sometimes tedious times. Is that not happening until after we get a vaccine?

No curfew in Jersey City I'm aware of. Its been peaceful in Bergen Lafayette as far as I know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25pm McGroovey:

I got a text alert (in NJ) about the NYC curfew, but nothing about one in my area. For whatever that means.
  Swag For Life Member 10:25pm Somm Ben:

Peaceful in Newark as well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:26pm melinda:

No curfew in Portland ME. We're running wild in the streets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:27pm Scott Williams:

No curfew in JC, everything's been peaceful. jj, thanks for the MC5 shout!
  10:29pm ignatatus666:

A curfew in Brooklyn is impossible. I was there for the last one . East NY was business as usual aside from stores. The cops don’t want to deal with Van Siclen or the projects as it is and they ignore the Orthodox/Hasidic communities.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:31pm Scott Williams:

Sounds like Shirley's been listening to David Tibet/Current 93
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm melinda:

Does curfew mean you can't leave your home after hours? That would be bonkers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm listener 126464:

Happy to say it looks like rally/march in Asbury Park stayed civil. Curfew was set for 8 but police didn't enforce. They probably all went for pizza at TJ's.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm Mungerphut:

Philly police are arresting people violating curfew in certain neighborhoods and the National Guard is patrolling Center City. Curfew is 6 pm and the protest at the museum broke up around 5
  10:50pm JakeGould:

Well, looks like there’s looting and fires being set on Fordham Road in the Bronx. The curfew won’t stop anything but give the police a new reason to arrest people.

So the scariest part of this to me is the NYPD doubling patrol size from 4,000 to 8,000 with no clear indication when that will stop. Imagine being stopped by a tired or amped up cop that is pulling a full 12 hours as a shift. It’s like this “solutions” will only make things worse.

@melinda: You stay home or… Something. Either you are given a summons or maybe locked up. Who knows… Literally; no clear guidance on how that would work if you are out after 11:00pm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm Yes:

pretty track
  10:51pm devlawn:

yes melinda.

can't be outside in a public place for any reason.
  10:52pm JakeGould:

The fireworks behind the music are comforting. I’m wistful for nice and beautiful explosions.
  10:53pm devlawn:

last night in culver city california they announced a curfew with 30 minutes notice, so if you were 35 minutes from home you were breaking the law.
  10:56pm devlawn:

4pm. not really night i suppose.
  10:57pm JakeGould:

And apparently Macy’s in Herald Square is being looted, but the place is all boarded up and all pics and vids just show rioters just bouncing around or trash fires in the street.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm jj.:

macy's? yikes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm Mungerphut:

All local police scanners are off line too, so it is hard to figure out what is going on
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm melinda:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:01pm jj.:

eesh. ominous. to be fair, i guess people were jamming scanners in some cities with "fuck the police" + "chocolate rain" + such.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Dan Bodah mentioned the "Chocolate Rain" prank on Vocal Fry earlier to great effect.
  11:04pm JakeGould:

Remember: There were peaceful protests yesterday and today in Brooklyn and Union Square. And that stuff ended at around 5-6:00pm.

Whatever is happening in the Bronx and in Herald Square is not a protest. It’s rioting and looting happening hours later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05pm jj.:

yes, i marched yesterday in my neighborhood after police helicopters alerted me to the existence of a march, and it was very peaceful except for the hovering police helicopters.
  11:06pm JakeGould:

Chicago PD got to listen to “Chocolate Rain”: www.vice.com...

As well as NWA: consequenceofsound.net...
  Swag For Life Member 11:07pm Somm Ben:

Someone better be handing out voter registrations at all these demonstrations.
  11:07pm JakeGould:

And whoever smashed the window of B&H Dairy on Second Avenue should be shamed for an hour by old Yentas who survived pogroms and the Holocaust.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm Crudbringer:

OMG this Sun Ra! (busily constructs pyramids from mashed potatoes and toothpaste)
  11:13pm JakeGould:

@jj.: That video I posted on Instragram @9:15? The young black woman ripping the white male rioters a new one was doing so right across the street from B&H.

It might sound like I am forcing a division between protestors and rioters but I have no need to force it: The protests organized by blacks have been peaceful and the majority of the looting and mayhem in the East Village and SoHo is being caused by teenage and college aged white guys.

Of course they smashed the window to B&H… What blowback will those brats ever feel?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:15pm Richy4619:

yeah yeah ok still don't snitch ok don't profile thanks
  11:16pm Sally:

Space is a safe place too dammit
  11:20pm JakeGould:

@Richy4619: Snitching? Profiling? You might want to tell that to the people organizing protests who are very clear on telling white protestors who show up how to behave. They are “profiling” to protect their own communities.
  11:20pm greatb:

Good evening, all. Space remains the place!
  11:22pm greatb:

the only thing that outpaces world events is Sun Ra reissues, and I am grateful for that

  11:54pm JakeGould:

Some quotes from the New York Times piece; from what I am reading protestors at a later protest in Union Square walked up 14th Street, headed up 5th Avenue and starting smashing windows of places like Aldo and Nike in the 20s and then just kept on moving up.


“That’s not what this is about!” a young woman who was red in the face shouted over and over again.


“They’re not with us!” shouted Steevo Anthony, 33, a supervisor at Whole Foods from Brooklyn, as he moved away from the looting. “Keep walking!”

Trembling with emotion, he added: “It’s giving a bad name to us people who are out here trying to do the right thing, the people who walked away.”
