Honestly, I tried to be brief, but there is just so much I want to share with you.
I hope you enjoy it.


Andy Warren is one half of Believe You Me. He is the lovely spirit you catch on the dancefloor. He is a lover of dolphins.

I was lucky enough to work with Believe You Me (Andy Warren and Ginkgo) to bring Honey Soundsystem to Portland back in November. I first met Andy when he played at Pure Moods, a basement party themed after the iconic international hit CD-compilation. He played a really gorgeous set by the light of a Himalayan salt lamp.

ANY008: Andy Warren


What does your mix say about the future?
It accurately predicts some of the tunes I will likely play in the near future at a dance party near you. Also when dolphins inherit the earth, everything will be underwater.

Would you ever marry a robot if it had near-flawless AI?
Kraftwerk taught me that computer love is real love too, so I'm willing to give it a shot.

What are you excited to learn about?
I'm excited to learn more about music production, and technology-assisted telepathy.

In the future, I’ll never have to….?
Die. I'm going to digitize my consciousness and live for centuries. Probably with a super cool android body.​

what is a prediction you have?
AI is going to take over most low-skill jobs and human consciousness, as well as technology, will be evolving at an exponential rate over the next 50 years.

In what way (big or small) are you actively creating the future?
Making sure that people will continue to have ways to enjoy themselves.

What is a song/sound that is futuristic
Dub techno.

What movie/art/tv show changed the course of your future?
2001: A Space Odyssey

This question comes from Not That Jennifer, would you rather know the future or be able to travel back in time?
Definitely travel back in time. Specifically to the 90s. The 90s were awesome.

Do you have any gigs coming up?
March 18 - Portland - Bit House
March 24 - Portland - Parasol
April 14 - Portland - Believe You Me 3 year Anniversary with Eddie C @ The Liquor Store
And a mini East Coast tour is in the works for late April TBA

Here's a photo of me in 2007 helping out in a Biloxi, Mississippi library that was ruined in hurricane Katrina.
AmeriCorps (as well as the NEA and other public services) are under attack. The current administration is attempting to completely cut funding.

I served two AmeriCorps terms as an AmeriCorps Member where I painted murals, tutored students, built houses, volunteered at food banks, fought wildfires and mentored folks doing environmental education. I learned the value of service and I got to see all the corners of this country. 

I currently work for an AmeriCorps organization that focuses on environmental justice issues.

AmeriCorps has clearly been an important part of my life and the lives of so many others. Don't let this administration strip the funding of this and many other important social and cultural programs.

What is AmeriCorps? This video does a good job explaining it.

Space and the American Imagination explores the role that writing, painting, drawing and film have in shaping the way that America learned to believe that space travel was possible. Having the scientific knowledge is not enough without the cultural imagination to manifest the futures we want.

Read the introductory chapter to get a taste of how creative visualization helps to manifest possible futures. It's fascinating and useful.

Powervers is a new podcast by Arbie (@ahhhbie) and Michael (@michaelrholt), two young(ish) friends exploring what it means to be gay and queer in the world today alongside a rotating crew of hilarious and inspiring special guests.

Irreverently funny, socially relevant, and at the forefront of an increasingly sex-positive culture, each episode unpacks and explores a different topic affecting queer people, including Masc4Masc culture, sex positivity, and, most recently, queer spirituality. In future episodes (which drop bi-weekly on Tuesdays) the boys plan on tackling queer language, racism and intersectionality, being professional party people, and much, much more.

Walker Arts Center has been commissioning artists to write op-eds in response to current events. You can read them at their site or get them through a print-on-demand service.


I'll be perfectly honest, I haven't even watched this yet
But it doesn't even matter because I LOVE Theda Hammel SO much and I really really like Patti's videos that I know that this is going to be amazing.

(There will certainly be more stuff from Theda in future issues, don't you worry! Maybe I can convince her to be a guest editor??)

The origin and story of "The Future is Female" shirts.

New York Times


From the event page:

Wikimedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity, however, is not. Content is skewed by the uneven gender participation. This represents an alarming absence in an increasingly important repository of shared knowledge. We all know that this bias is not just about gender. Women of color are often the least represented voices in history.

Let’s change that!

Art & Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thons in Portland! These events require no previous experience and are open to people of all gender identities. Just bring a laptop and charging cable and we’ll provide everything else! Snacks and experienced, dependable childcare provided!


A) Go see Get Out. Don't watch the trailer though, it will spoil a lot of it.
B) ask yourself: Why do we think of the future in terms of the 1960s?
Do you have something you think is a good fit for Always Never Yesterday?
