Comments on: New Content and Documentary Teaser http://westbank.dreamformula.com/?p=17 A history of activist media on the West Bank Fri, 01 Sep 2006 17:33:37 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.8.2 By: C B http://westbank.dreamformula.com/?p=17#comment-8 Wed, 07 Jun 2006 02:28:00 +0000 http://westbank.dreamformula.com/?p=17#comment-8 This is very cool. I lived at the Hard Times from 1988 – 1992. I was there every day and did all of my college papers there. I credit the Hard Times for opening my mind and getting me through school. Seriously.

Man, I even remember the place when it was the Urban Peasant, and then Cafe Global, and finally, The Hard Times. I have so many memories there. I remember that the owner of the earlier incarnations of the Hard Times was “Mike,” a Jamaican kid who played trumpet and guitar. What the hell happened to him?

You should know that some of Gordie Zieter’s ashes are rumored to be stuffed in the walls of the cafe — the rest we set adrift on the river. If you go way in the back of the cafe, behind the false wall where the bar USED to be, you can still see a picture of Gordie on the wall. Dance on Big Bear!

Look forward to the film. Hope that you include all of the early regulars who populated that place:

Gregory Peck
David Markell
Peter Dodge (obviously)
Mike (?) onetime owner
Jason (?) Mike’s asshole partner
Andy (?)
The Dude Who Got Busted for No Reason with Pot (what a frame up) and nearly Caused the Shut Down (again, no reason).
Red Boy
Gordie Zeiter
Larry Johnson
Tsihi (Sunny), an Eritrian dude who never stopped smiling and who was a friend
Barachi, an Eritrian dude who proved you don’t have to be an “American” to be a pain in the ass
Too many people to list.
