What Do Occupy Oakland and Mayor Jean Quan Have in Common?

First, they are both Libras. Why does that matter, you ask? It doesn't, unless you are a firm believer in astrology, or perhaps, like us, you are looking for another excuse to see Mayor Jean Quan in this wizard hat.

As our sister blog, the Exhibitionist notes, local astrologer Djenne Ba has used their signs to unravel the mysteries that surround the Occupy movement and Mayor Quan's mishandling of the situation. Obviously, it can all be found right there in the stars, planets, etc.

Anyway, Ba tells Oakland Local that she's assigned an Oct. 10 birth date to the Occupy Oakland movement, which just so happens to be 11 days before Oakland Mayor Quan's birthday on Oct. 21. Ba explains in rather vague terms that "Both Quan and Occupy charts have four planets in air, three planets in fire, two planets in the earth element and one planet in water."

Make sense?

Ba goes on to say that the Oct. 25 police raid on the Occupy Oakland camp "did not sit well in Quan's soul."

Neither are her stars

Moreover, she uses the stars and the planets to translate Quan's handling of the Occupy movement: It  will have an "unfavorable" impact on her political career. We'll agree with that assessment, but only because it has already.

In short, you don't really even need to know stars and planets exist to have arrived at such clear conclusions.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
