Turn It Up will turn it out!

Pulling double duty today (and hopefully avoiding incurring the wrath of my editors) I published the deets on Turn It Up over on BOTH my blog and my blog today. If you're in town Thursday night, and you don't come... I hate you.

Turn It Up will turn it out!:
"Turn It Up will turn it out!

Phil Reese 4/6/2010--This Thursday at 7pm at the Champaign-Urbana Independent Media Center, get ready to be blown away by the first major local concert event of the season.

The UnitingPride Center of Champaign County--the brand new LGBTQA Community Center initiative--is presenting Turn It Up April 8th at 7pm at 202 S. Broadway, in Urbana.

Its the old Post Office, Y'all, you can't miss it!

Ticket and refreshment sales will benefit the UP Center for securing a space and generating new programs vital for our youth and underserved populations. If you don't go, you're a meanie.

Bands will include local sensations Vanattica and Tom Miebach performing several sets throughout the night.

In between our musical acts will be sensational spoken-word artists Anna Schweig and Cara Bailey.

They'll have your funny-bone covered too. Comedy Improv group The Abe Froman Project will be providing some chuckles throughout the night.

But be ready to have your breath taken away by the Mistress of Ceremonies. Bringing it all together on Thursday night, is the beautiful, stunning and absolutely divine Miss Leiloni Stars of the LA Girls. You know she'll be on point!

Tickets are $5 in advance at the sale page and $10 at the door. $8 for students, but why wouldn't you just get them in advance anyway? I mean its only $5. We're going to entertain you all night. There's refreshments. Why haven't you clicked the link yet? What's wrong with you?"

Chris Geidner: In Iowa, judges are ousted.

Via Chris Geidner's Poliglot blog at Metro Weekly:


In Iowa, which declared Iowa's marriage ban unconstitutional under the state's constitution in 2009, the National Organization for Marriage got one of its first electoral victories this year. The judicial retention elections appear to have resulted in the replacement of all three justices up for a vote this year.

Here, as of 3:35 a.m. and with 1767 out of 1774 precincts reporting, are the Iowa Secretary of State's election results:

Supreme Court Justice David L. Baker
Yes 443437 45.75%
No 525865 54.25%

Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Streit
Yes 442459 45.6%
No 527921 54.4%

Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus
Yes 437118 44.99%
No 534486 55.01%

The court was unanimous in its 2009 ruling that Iowa's constitution required marriage equality."

Can we trust Rasmussen anymore?

WHAT. THE. HELL? NEW HAMPSHIRE??? (and a prop 8 update)

Okay, first let me just say CALIFORNIA can breathe easy for a few more days as San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsome convinced the Supreme Court to hold of on releasing their decision on Prop 8 a few more days until the 30th anniversary of the White Night Riots is passed.  We're probably going to see it Tuesday, the following Thursday or THAT following Monday.  
NOW:  WHAT THE HELL, NEW HAMPSHIRE HOUSE?!?!?!?!???!?!?!?!????!
The NEW HAMPSHIRE House, which on May 6 APPROVED Marriage Equality by a vote of 178-167, has now stalled the REWRITTEN BY GOVERNOR JOHN LYNCH bill 188-186--That's right, folks, two votes.  25 members did not vote at all, and opponents of the bill failed to kill it in a 173-202 vote, but this STILL means we're waiting on NEW HAMPSHIRE to GET ITS SHIT TOGETHER!  The House passed a resolution to continue negotiating with the Senate by a vote of 207-168.  If that same number votes for the 're-re-renegotiated' bill in the next two weeks it will pass, but …
