Bernard Stollman interviewed by Jaee Logan -- Suzannah B. Troy

I helped Jaee Logan to find his Dad,  Giuseppi Logan through my twenty-one part YouTube documentary series on the legendary jazz musician.    When we spoke I told Jaee you need to make a documentary, a Hollywood film and I even see him writing a book. He flew in from CA to start filming with his friend and fellow musician Bobby who did the filming here. Here is an amazing interview with Bernard Stollman. I feel like Jaee took over where I couldn't really go. My YouTubes tend to be in the park where I first filmed Giuseppi Logan and started changing lives through the miracle of YouTube posting.

If you go to this YouTube link you can find more of the series filmed by Jaee Logan and his friend Bobby.   This clip ends with asking Bernard Stollman about the East Village and about Malcom X who Jaee shares a birthday with.  Giuseppi Logan's birthday is also coming up.

I will be bringing postings of all the YouTube series on Jaee Logan being reunited with his Dad after 40 years.  What is really exciting is this interview with Bernard Stollman and what he has to say about how he came to found ESP record labels and find musical talent.  Also why Bernard Stollman felt compelled to document artists.

As an artist I can' express how important that is.  Stay tuned...I will be bringing you a series of YouTubes and writing by Dan Orth and for jazz lovers you will not be disappointed!!!!!

Christine Quinn gets backing? post Donny Moss and Suzannah B. Troy

Dear friends -- gay and straight:

This is frightening.

The Gay and  Lesbian Victory Fund, a nationwide group that helps elect gay candidates to public office, is already campaigning for Christine Quinn for Mayor of NYC in 2013 (see below).    In the months leading up to the election, the Victory Fund will assuredly rally gay people around the country to support her campaign.  The fact that Quinn has betrayed the gay community time and again when it suits her politically; has one of the worst human rights voting records at City Hall; and has been exposed for budget and campaign corruption on multiple occasions does not appear to be of interest to the Victory Fund.

This support of the VIctory Fund, coupled with the fact that Quinn already has a staff of people campaigning for her (compliments of NYC taxpayers), means that we now have to resume our efforts to educate the public about why she should be voted out of office.   

Soon, we will hit the streets again, protesting at her speaking engagements and educating the public (as in the pictures below).    During the last election, this campaign was quite effective, we think.   As you may recall, Quinn was supposed to be re-elected to her City Council seat by a landslide (in her gay district), but she barely won a majority.  After the election, Crain's reported that, "Insiders have largely written off Council Speaker Christine Quinn (for 2013 Mayor), who was damaged by the council's slush fund scandal and extension of term limits, and struggled to win re-election."   But we can't rest of our laurels...

Until our street campaign starts up again, please use any opportunity to educate your friends, co-workers and strangers about why Quinn must go:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXoANkQh93I

And please pass this email along to people who might want to join us.

Also folks please watch my YouTube series of NYU and The Villager in what appears to be corrupt dealings with the community on behalf of Christine Quinn who they both wanted in office.  The Villager does some feel good stories but they endorsed Mike Bloomberg and Christine Quinn?  Does anyone know how John Sutter has so much money he can have so many newspapers that he gives away free and please don't tell me advertising.

Also note The Villager's sister paper Chelsea Now removed a link with me speaking at  a City Council Task force meeting on DOB and guess who did not show up? Christine Quinn.  The newspaper made it go away before the very close election where both Quinn and Bloomberg barely won.  If Derr had backed out Yetta Kurland would mostly like be representing the district instead of Christine Quinn.

Gee whiz -- how did this article on City Council task force meeting on DOB vanish  before the election in John Sutter's newspaper Chelsea Now?  http://www.chelseanow.com/cn_12/builtupcomplaintssome.html

NYU evil empire Avatar comes to mind - Suzannah B. Troy

Please watch my film review of Avatar because I compare the evil greedy people in the movie to developers that would crush our communities and displace the people of this great city and I mention NYU and Columbia University as well as other. NYU mega dormed the East Village to death and led the way for Cooper Union, The New School, NY Law, SVA and other to confuse the Lower East Side with dorm fodder. They do not even need to abuse eminent domain to get the job done. Please walk by 120 East 12th Street to witness NYU's evil dirty work tearing down St. Ann's that survived everything from 1847 all these years except NYU's greed. NYU pretends they are green but every which way they can bust through zoning and block the sun light with high buildings and rip down our historic buildings NYU will do it even participating in an illegal air sale with the USPS over St. Ann's and to date the USPS have never notified the State of NY as legally required when selling air space over St. Ann's. USPS need the money desperately since the USPS is losing mega-billions and NYU needed to ruthlessly tear down yet another historic building and bust thru zoning. Both NYU and the USPS were confident they were above the law and not behold to the community.

Read the article in Crain's about NYU, the Purple Reign of Terror where ever NYU wants to buy up, rent or take-over a neighborhood which includes tearing down historic buildings including Edgar Alan Poe House, St. Ann's, The Province Town Playhouse and there are historical artifacts of more beautiful buildings NYU tore down on the side of Bobst Library to remind us that once the Village had beautiful architecture and NYU clearly has no architecture school or sense of beauty as well as respect for the community and history.

NYU has said they were here first. Actually the American Indians were here and treated far worse than the locals now but it is paid and people are being displaced. My maternal Grandfather was born in a tenement house on the lower East Side in 1904. NYU says they have to expand and they act like real estate property is cocaine and like the greedy corporate demon in Avatar we the people are an inconvenient presence.

For those who don't know Columbia University is abusing eminent domain to move an entire neighborhood called Manhattanville out. NYU and Cooper Union do not even have to abuse eminent domain to bust through zoning and push our community out in favor of soulless banks and chain stores that cater to college kids.

NYU's president John Sexton is paid almost $2million dollars a year and that is really to be a real estate magnate. He and the president of Columbia University are in a fierce competition to see who can buy up as much property, expand as rapidly as possible, push out the communities and use real estate to lure talent like it was cotton candy at Circus.

I even heard an NYU staff member bragging he was given a 100 percent mortgage so yes NYU treats real estate like cocaine the people like the Avatars except they ending is a happy one.

Christine Quinn Goldman Sachs Sullivan Cromwell - Suzannah B. Troy

What do Goldman Sachs and Christine Quinn -- City Council have in common? Sullivan & Cromwell and the need for high priced New York lawyers that specialize in White Collar crime. I include the link for my new YouTube for articles on this and related issues.

What do Goldman Sachs and Christine Quinn -- City Council have in common? Sullivan and Cromwell and high priced lawyers that specialize in white collar crime. The fact Christine Quinn went out and hired Sullivan and Cromwell along with other top dog lawyers that specialize in white collar crime is old news and we would all love to know what is the actually cost to tax payers as of today, this very moment? I have asked The New York Post and The New York Daily News to run a ticker tape of the costs to tax payers by City Council and hey throw in Albany but for now Bill DeBlasio is trying to get City Council to be transparent and post spending on the city government website. For now it has not happened and my new YouTube that is a must see on corruption, NYC politics, Wall Street, Mike Bloomberg, Steve Rattner and the fact that little old city council at Christine Quinn’s lead have hired the very same law firm, Sullivan Cromwell as Goldman Sachs one of the most powerful financial brokers and wheelers and dealers but at the tax payers expense. I want Christine Quinn to list each city council and staff member and the price to date of how much their high priced white collar crime defense attorneys cost. Christine Quinn is hugely despised here in NYC for flushing democracy down the toilet aiding and abetting Mike Bloomberg who was urged on by Steve Rattner as mentioned in the awful puff piece book by Joyce Purnick to run or you could use the term steal a third term. Now meetings are in play to discuss a referendum so the voters can vote on if we want city politicians to have a third term since Mike Bloomberg and gang cunningly worked out away to deny us a referendum. This will forever taint Mike Bloomberg’s legacy and their is more to come.

In the mean time Mike Bloomberg wants to do away with public advocate yet again. Stay tuned. FYI: Last night President Obama was snubbed by top Wall Street firms at a high priced fund raiser where some pay as much as $50,000 to attend and among the missing was Goldman Sachs which shows you have powerful the Wall Street firms are and how much they don’t want any rules or limits set in play. Wall Street has a script of how brilliant and generous they are to us mere mortals and they don’t want to be forced off script. Wall Street wants to rule from The White House to Wall Street.
