Windsor Update 2022-02-12
Just home for a bit.
This is all so surreal.
Had 4-5 hours sleep a night all week. Was just at the protest for more than a couple days. Got 40 minutes of sleep two nights ago then had a stand off with police few folks even know about at the second of 3 blockades. This epic tale may become a short novel/chapter soon. Then finally got 4 hours from 4:30am-8:30 am this morning before I was called back as the cops made the move at the primary blockade. In my Santa hat I planted myself for the best meme-able moment (like our Tieneman Square tank man). I had too many interviews to remember or to ever find. Detroit News or Free Press, a few with Rebel News, Global, Reuters, etc. Apparently I was standing beside Vincent for one of his comments that made it to Tucker Carlson. I didn't always feel like talking if I was tired and not sharp.
Gotta sleep for a few hours before I walk over to the Green Room to catch a ride back to the front with blankets and more Druthers. At some point I might try to check in on Facebook to find what live streams or video clips people might have shared with me, but they'd be too many to count. Feel free to link them here.
I might check in here too, but won't have much time to chat.
Also, I've got some FANFUCKINGTASTIC new connections and several new projects lining up. Some of them you folks can participate in too.
One I want to share is the idea of printing up several stickers with a local vinyl sticker guy who makes great stuff. Perhaps if some folks agree and we can fund raise, and kindly ask M7 if we can print a bunch of SaidIt.net (and some (maybe all) of the following: Projex.Wiki, WikiSpooks.com, Druthers.net, CorbettReport.com, UnlimitedHangout.com, and StandUpWindsor.ca) stickers to distribute to folks at the protests which will likely go on for some time to come. Perhaps folks can do funny/clever/insightful/witty memes and have them "from SaidIt.net" too. We can work out the details soon, if we get permission.
I'm quite certain I've forgotten some of the important details and haven't even touched on the endless stories that could almost bring a Santa to tears. This is history making and it's so weird that it's in this little town and that we are part of it.
