The Everything is Everything Frame

September is out of the gate and off to a brisk start not only here at COP:24/7 but in all that this forum surveys. I'm almost breathless trying to keep up with the comings and goings, mis-steps, mis-cues, fall out and what have you. However, as I swirl in the Big Chair in search of the latest updates, links, commentary, observations and mash up's, it's onward and upward toward our anniversary celebration later this month. Are ya ready readers? Well of course you are. Let's go get em....

"Coming Out for Equality – A Rainbow Family Outing"
After a successful 2009 Pride Picnic, local organizers are poised to continue the momentum in observation of National Coming Out Day as well as the Equality March happening in DC that same weekend. The event will step off in Reservoir Park, 11 p.m. set up with a 1 p.m. start time. Organizers believe that this event is being designed to encourage working for equality at the local level. The title also reflects the intent for this event to be open to all LGBTQ Arkansans, their families and straight allies. Meanwhile bringing the broadest spectrum possible of LGBTQ/Same gender loving Arkansans, their friends and families together to play and have fun, but to build deeper relationships between diverse communities.
The group’s consensus is to keep this event as a recurring fall event in lieu of a spring picnic; primary consideration being that there is less likelihood of inclement weather affecting the event. Another community wide planning meeting is being scheduled to finalize the event. Here's a chance for you to get involved by sharing your talents, expertise and above all your resources to make this a winning fall outing.

Got Capitalism!?: He's back! You know one of my favorite filmmaker who takes no prisoners and keeps calling the shots on the shotcallers, big-ballers and bullshitters amongst us. It's Michael Moore bringing down the house with his latest film, Capitalism: A Love Story, about our economy being pulled back from the abyss. Moore is on a tear trying to find out about "credit default swaps," "derivatives" and just where the hell is all the bailout money. After premiering at the Venice Film Festival, it comes to the U.S. shores October 2. Hopefully, Little Rock's Market Theatre will again bring Moore's send up to us locally. I don't plan on missing it, perhaps we should see it together shall we? Hit us with a e-mail or drop it likes it hot in the comment box. Here's a thought for the Day:
