Magnetofunky - A 1223Studios Production

Grid power to the people!

Magnetofunky is a laid back (and often explicit, you bet your ass...) weekly podzine of extremely eclectic music and progressive politics, with a focus on energy independence for the 99%, the people usually left out of discussions on going off the grid or generating electricity in an emergency. I'm seeking solutions to a simple scenario: how do you charge a battery AND keep your fridge running on day three of a blackout without a solar panel or a windmill?

Physically, I'm in the damn-near completely gentryfied and contentious (and constantly renovated) left coast oasis of art, culture, and social experiment called San Francisco. My current base of operations is in my Mission District sculpture/podcast studio, but metaphorically, I'm perched at the western end of Golden Gate Park near Sunset Beach, where the sunsets are wonderful and scientists, poets, artists and musicians come through and jam to the surf...

The Open Mic Stage accepts submissions of almost any genre from great bands and artists the world over, whether big name or indie, as long as I like the beat and flow.
