Fantastic response by Bill Clinton to Chris Wallace’s question about Clinton’s anti-terrorist strategy while in office. I tried to post the video here, but FOX news has made YOU TUBE take it down. I found it at this link.

Check it out soon, I don’t know how long it’s going to remain up.

Here’s fox news’ response: link.

Here’s video of Keith Olbermann’s Special Comment to Bush: “Are YOURS the actions of a true American?”

And here’s what the Chicago Tribune had to say.

Post Panel Report

Posted on by Joshua Dysart Posted in Comic Books, Home | Leave a comment

The PULP GRIND MANIFESTO panel I helped produce for the West Hollywood Book Fair was a swimming success!

More people attended than we ultimately had room for. The bio-mass spilled out from under the tent and into the truly intense heat. Despite sweltering conditions, none left and the crowd actually grew throughout the event. Many who joined us after the start of the proceedings seemed to be non-comic book readers roped in by the engaging writers talking boldly, honestly and entertainingly about their craft.

I couldn’t have asked for four (+ Cody, Deven’s amazing service dog, who had lots to say) better speakers.

We didn’t really end up with a manifesto per say, but I intend, as a creative exorcise only, to revisit and restructure the resulting document using the words of the guests. I’ll post it here when it’s ready.

You can read a detailed blow by blow report of the panel here.

Word on the street is that there’s going to be a pod cast of the entire thing soon. I’ll keep you posted.

I want to thank the panelists, Brian K. Vaughan, Mark Waid, Allan Heinberg and Devin Grayson; the awesome moderator Christine Boyland; Plus Mark Masterson writer of Dorothy who followed along, kept notes on the big board (no easy task) and took the only photo of the event (below); and finally, thanks to my endlessly energetic cohort Roz Helfand from the book fair.

Los Angeles based Air America affiliate KTLK 1150 AM Progressive Talk Radio has decided, in their infinite wisdom, to interview me, Joshua Dysart. I’ll be a guest on the Activism A Go Go segment of the Harrison on the Edge show. A live stream of it can be found at the link above.

Harrison on the Edge airs from 10:00 pm – 1:00 am Thursday night. Unfortunately they’re not sure when my segment will run. It will be repeated Friday night.

That is all.

Banksy Hits Disneyland!

“A life-size replica of a Guantanamo Bay detainee has been placed in Disneyland by “guerrilla artist” Banksy. The hooded figure was placed inside the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad ride at the California theme park last weekend. It is understood to have remained in place for 90 minutes before the ride was closed down and the figure removed.” – full article here

Banksy is due to hold what is billed as a “three day vandalised warehouse extravaganza” in Los Angeles this weekend.
