Not to add to the clutter at sudoroom, but I'd just like to point out that
the big apartment building in Alameda that I've been living in will be
closing down this weekend, and there might be some goodies to be found for
th eenterprising dumpster diver. There's at least another dozen households
that will need to move out during these last few days, and the recycling
containers around the back are already overflowing.
There's a set of nice filing cabinets sitting near the trash, and one of
the recycling containers seems to have some chairs in it as well. As these
last stragglers move out (I hear they've got all three elevators scheduled
for moving companies from now until Saturday), I would expect a lot more
stuff to appear. Might be worth keeping an eye on...
Marina View Towers, 1100 Pacific Marina,
Trash and recycling containers are around the back of the building and are
unlocked. There is a security car that does the rounds very sporadically.
I feel like we have a problem and I want to put out there, along with what
I think is a really reasonable and well thought out solution.
In my opinion there is way too much stuff at SudoRoom, and it's just
unfocused and messy.
I think it's a roadblock to membership. We aren't equipped to deal with
this much stuff, and we don't have room for people to be in the space.
One solution is to have a party where we donate, recycle, and throw out
things we don't need, in order to make room for a new design of the space
that accomodates more members and makes the space more usable.
As part of that we could hand out green stickers to put on things we want
to keep, and if people put stickers on things, then we can keep them. We
could also hand out a limited amount of red stickers of things that people
want to see leave the space, and we could bring up those items at a
We could pool resources to pay for a dumpster, and uhaul truck. Obviously,
throwing things away would be a last resort, and donating would be
I'm open to other solutions, but this is where I have gotten with other
members so far.
Does anyone know the process and equipment needed to do music mashing? I'd really like to learn what it takes--likely more than just Audacity, right? Is there a Today I learned... not yet on the calendar?
Trying to have regular Sunday dinners, y'all are welcome to join, planning to come from the art show at sudo, around 7pm. My place is 359 Bellevue Ave, Oakland. My number is 818-599-0567.
Potluck-ish, see you, sudoers!
Call me cuckoo but I want to make ramen noodles for Public School's monday
night dinner. It's the start of their Summer School.
I am wondering if anyone has a kitchen aide or other mixer with a dough
hook? Also I need a pasta maker since hand pulled noodles might be a bit
beyond my skill given the time frame.
Any circuit benders in the house? This looks like fun!

On behalf of the upcoming Mission Creek Oakland Music and Arts Festival (
www.mcofest.org), organizer Kiyomi Tanouye and I were thinking to include
fellow local community organizations to publicize during the MCO campaign
of opportunities to learn methods of making art and music. The festival is
throughout the month of September, publicized and sponsored by the East Bay
Express. If any of the talented and knowledgeable at Sudo Room were
interested in hosting or coming over to RPSC to teach circuit bending
tricks, we'd be happy to plug Sudo Room into the campaign!
The projected date of the workshop is Sunday, September 8th.
Hope you hear from you all soon!
