Common Folk Hero of the Week

Mark Scheffler’s protest against the legality of open carry in Appleton, WI is pure creative common folk genius. A couple weeks ago, two presumably militant zealots, Charles Branstrom and Ross Bauman, decided to walk through the downtown farmer’s market carrying AR-15 assault rifles on their backs for “self defense.” ar-15 They were not arrested nor fined despite several 911 calls and many feeling, rightfully so, uncomfortable.

In steps Mark Scheffler who decides he will point out the absurdity of gun laws by carrying his brown hen, named Winchester, in his arms through the farmer’s market. While carrying assault rifles through a downtown farmer’s market is completely legal, carrying a chicken, ironically something inherent in order for a farmer’s market to exist, is illegal and carries a fine of $263.50. It is also worthy to note that Scheffler owns a gun himself and pretty much feels like I do, “Guns have their place…they don’t belong in downtown Appleton.”

It scares me that a seemingly rational person “illegally” carries a hen whereas the quite possibly mentally impaired are the ones legally carrying assault weapons. Let’s think of the worst case scenario in each situation…



Magnets How Do They Work?

The Insane Clown Posse in the song “Miracles” asks “Fuckin’ magnets how do they work?” which they attribute to miracles.

Well Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope this is how they fucking work.

A friendly reminder that science will always set you in your place.

Swampy lives a life that you or I could probably only sustain for the length of this video. Get a glimpse in this trippy, stream of conscious, train hopping, graffiti, art video diary provided by the illustrious Swamp Donkey. Illegal trouble all day.


Humpday Helper: Vex Ruffin- No Escape

Vex Ruffin is a Filipino-American who is the only person to have gotten a deal on StonesThrowRecords through an unsolicited demo sent through the mail, Peanut Butter Wolf said “It was kind of a fluke that I listened. I just liked the drawing on the cover so I decided to check it out. I called the phone number on the CD and Vex thought I was his friend playing a practical joke.”

Vex Ruffin’s music is pretty out there but could be described as minimalist electro-punk filtered through hip hop beats and sampling, apparently he uses an SP 303 as inspired by listening to Madlib. His first release, Crash Course EP, is dope and he’s got a new one on the way Nov. 12th. Until then, here’s a free download, No Escape-
