Featured Monthly Member – Melle Mel

On the soil we get our lingo from. Ooh.

On the soil we get our lingo from. Ooh.

We love our monthly members (why else would they be Friends with Benefits?), and we like to give them a little love here on Hella Bus.

Just look at Mel, she’s living life in the sunshine, because the air’s a little sweeter and the breeze is a little gentler for monthly members. Some things are just fact. We couldn’t make this up if we tried. Thanks for being a monthly member Mel! And good luck with the Mile High Club Contest.

Kathy says no new jail

Every month, the dynamic, smart, and ready-for-action interns at the WA Bus organize ShortBus, the Bus’s all-ages political throwdown. In April, ShortBus attendees not only made superfly Bus shirts (sneak preview right here), but they asked other young people why they support Initiative 100, the No New Jail initiative. What did they say? Well, see for yourself!

We’ve got a lot to learn

About heckling. Apparently.

A Bus tipper was in attendance at last night’s Seattle School Board meeting, and was astounded to find that the audience constantly interrupted and disputed the Board during the proceedings.

There aren’t many places we heckle here in the states, primarily sporting events, during wedding speeches, and in the general direction of terrible comedians (Dane Cook, we’re looking at you).

England’s got us beat hands-down. For real. If you’ve never seen the British Parliament in action, you’re missing some of the best political action around. Check it.

Now, if we can elevate the heckling to that level here in the States, that would be interesting.

They reminisce over you

One of the all time best songs. Pop quiz: name that sample, and name the Black Sheep track that used a different part of the same song.
