Hi, my name is Jim Macdonald, and I have an odd assortment of interests. In no particular order, I love Yellowstone, I am an anti-authoritarian activist and organizer, and I have a background in philosophy, having taught at the college level. My blog has a lot more links to my writing and my other Web sites. In Jim's Eclectic World, I try to give a holistic view of my many interests. Often, all three passions show themselves interweaving in the very same blog. Anyhow, I think it's a little different. But, that's me. I'm not so much out there, but taken together, I'm a little unusual.

    The BAD PODCAST – The Agony and the Ecstasy of Relationship

    Anarchists and anti-fascists also live complex lives just like everyone else. We have families, relationships, and traditions. In this episode, we look first (00:01:03) at Aly's recent break-up with her boyfriend Gray and then (00:34:51) the bliss in Jim's relationship with Dee Elle. Those discussions focus on having ideals for relationship that are consistent with anarchist beliefs around freedom and therefore anti-authoritarian approaches to relationship. The discussion focuses on feelings, how to approach differing values in relationship, and the degree to which we believe we must seek our ideals also in our partners. Other segments include a Kellogg's anti-ad (00:53:48) –which was recorded prior to the strike's resolution (and has a special guest) – Aly's answers to rapid-fire questions from Jim (00:56:14), and a discussion about our approach to Christmas (00:59:17).

    The BAD PODCAST - First Episode!

    We just recorded the second podcast tonight, and hopefully it should be out in the next week or so! In the meanwhile, enjoy Episode 0001!)


    The Bozeman Antifa Dance (& Theatre Collective) - i.e., BAD - launch our first podcast, where collective members Aly White and Jim Macdonald discuss (00:22) what BAD is, why BAD is, what the podcast is going to be. Along the way, (29:32) they explain why you shouldn't eat at Sidewinders Restaurant, and discuss some of the pieces they have written on the BAD website (www.bozemanantifadance.org). First, (37:32) Jim discusses his controversial essay on a bull moose that came through Bozeman, how it was treated by the authorities, and what that says about our society. After Aly asks Jim some rapid fire questions (57:05), Aly talks (1:00:33) about her essay about working through anxiety, how that is mirrored in her dog Echo, and the social implications of talking about mental health issues.

    So, why shouldn't you eat at Sidewinders? Check out this PDF flyer!
