On Friday, November 16th, from 7-9 PM I will be hosting my 2nd Quadrennial post-election get together and birthday party.

Please contribute at least a few dollars to the non-profit I am raising funds for, $5 - 10 suggested minimum (what would you pay for this meal?) and as much as you can afford - if it's not possible now, your helping in connecting UPSTREAMTV to other resources is appreciated. I am hoping they will make it to make their own appeal to you and show some videos of the wild Northwoods...

You might remember the first quadriennial birthday event: Bemidji, Bali or Ballot-counting? My IRV fundraiser and birthday party!. This time it's a free feed in the community room and a fundraiser for UPSTREAMTV, the 501 c. 3 non-profit cable access channel through which I was able to produce many of the videos I've posted on DailyKos recently.

Here is the facebook event invite, if you want to RSVP:

After this election, I am sure that many more people know that we need to stay engaged, organize inside the party, and outside - as occupy does, to advance the cause of peace and greater harmony & well being. We'll likely have some short occupy inspired brainstorming, decision-making, loosely organize together to do whatever work we agree must be done to make more of the re-elections of Barack Obama, Congressman Rick Nolan, and the DFL's control of both houses in the state legislature. We will eat some great vegetarian food, and I can begin to plan on a future that feels more bright, moist and hopeful after these long years of avoiding earned income to avoid paying war taxes, and I can invite more people to pursue experiments in extracting themselves, as I did, from the grinding impoverishment of urban materialism in pursuit of food sovereignty, enjoying and protecting our northern forests and water sources, life.

Let me know if you wantto play a larger role in this event, or donate towards the meal, help UPSTREAMTV buy some modern video editing computers & figure out livestreaming, help them pay the rent.

ALSO note: there is an Occupy event tonight in Minneapolis. More below the fold.

From an e-mail from Polly Kellogg:

Occupy Live! Hennepin Avenue United Methodist Church tonight , Tues. 6 to 8 PM.
511 Groveland at Lyndale, Minneapolis
Admission is $5

There will be cookies, and people can catch rides home. Parking is on the street, or paid lot across Hennepin. Flyer attached.

This is a chance to see a broad overview of all that Occupy in doing in Mpls/St Paul and beyond - tar sands protests in Texas, Occupy Sandy. See the Ger and hear from Whealthy Human Village and Occupy Homes. Tall Scott from St. Paul is MC. Share FB event by same title. Dave Rovics will sing a few songs...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
