Blathering on

This is where you will find posts about San Diego metal, punk rock and cannabis related events, organizations and venues. Also, posts about bands from other genres or locations and events that should be part of the San Diego scene. In short, random shit that has caught the eye of this blathering freak.

Happy New Year!

Today is the first day of 2021. ( Sorry not music related ) For some of us, the fly stuck in the fence represents what 2020 felt like. I don't need to recap 2020 for you. We all know that it was a dumpster fire of a year. A year so  bad that if you can say, " I only lost half of my income" that about 787, 000 of our fellow citizens can rightfully say, "Ha! Only half?".  Right [...]

San Diego Mutual Aide List

Distribution List This distribution list consists of organizations, community fridges and events. Due to Covid, if I were you , I would message the organizers to confirm distribution methods before venturing out.  For example,  a fixed location distribution might opt to become a mobile distribution to prevent Covid exposure.  Please check back, I will update as often as I can. If you're able to donate to any of the following organizations and events, please do so. This is a short [...]

The Community Front

From the Kindness Corner The Kindness Corner is a new category on San Diego Blather. In this category you will find a page with a list of private community ran outreaches with a couple of registered non-profits that are truly volunteer and donation ran. All of those listed do not receive government funds so please consider donating clothing, food, funds and maybe your time. This tiny post is about The Community Front and is the first tiny post from this [...]

Golden Plates

This is a San Diego based artist whose creations are dripping sweetly into my ear canal and tripping around my brain giving the best cerebral massage. Honey, this a gorgeous parade of notes and images that's highly addicting. Who is this artist? Lets meet  Golden Plates and the multi talented juggler and artist who is Elder Brycen - a character with character! Bio from Facebook: "In 1823, Joseph Smith claimed to have discovered the word of God on some Golden [...]

Manifest Unity

A bit of blathering on.... Once in awhile I'll blather on in a post about whatever has been playing on my mind. Not everything that's been keeping me up because that would be ridiculous and I like to keep my demons private. I promise, the urge occurs only once in awhile and this post is one of those bits of blathering on The fireworks are booming in the distance and even during this Covid-19 pandemic, from the thunderous booms I [...]

Chiix

Going to the beach? This artist is perfect for enhancing your relaxing day at the beach or even ending your hike staring over a lush canyon. Wherever your special place is, you'll need this artist with you! Chiix delivers with beautifully done Atmospheric that's rich with a dreamy emotional quality that's rather lovely and relaxing.

ALL Lives Matter! Just Not Black Lives??

I stood on one of the four corners with quite a few people but trying to keep a social distance. Most of my co-protesters are white, I'm one of the few brown people there.  I heard passing motorists scream at me, "Go back to your country!" We all heard the idiotic racists with their comeback to our Black Lives Matter signs with "All lives matter!" and " N*** Lover!". Along with signs that said, "Black Lives Matter" we also held [...]

Paleos

A Force.. Paleos is a metalcore force,  a fucking force bent on desecrating your senses with majestic vocals bellowing up embraced by tasty shredding that's going to tear you up one side and down the other. The drums? You're going to get crushed. You may not be able to handle what this Atalanta, Georgia band is delivering but we better hope they can come to San Diego soon.  Oh man, I can only imagine these guys in the same line [...]
