I’m not a big celebrity guy… folks are folks, and we all gotta eat…. but getting to meet Elon Musk and ride with him in the Tesla Model S car that I helped to hack, ahem, modify for the documentary Racing Extinction was pretty cool.
Last night my dear friend Mona Caron handed me a small card with an image of a modern-looking man with his hands together in prayer, San Precario, with some words printed on the back. The words were in Spanish, but it didn’t take a translation to understand that what I was holding in my hand is an expression of our times; the increasing lack of stability in the workplace and the age-old desire for right-livelihood.
We had just finished watching “The Economics of Happiness” a film that critiques Globalization and promotes localization. I highly recommend checking it out, even though it is difficult to solve the complex problems of the whole world in 1.5 hours of film. Nevertheless it provided some excellent discussion.
Well I don’t want to open up too many cans ‘o worms here. Mostly just wanted to send out this image of San Precario. If you want to read more check out this link:
“I’m countin’ down to the day deservin’
Fittin’ for a King.
I’m waitin’ for the time when I can
Get to Arizona’
Cause my money’s spent on
The goddamn rent
Neither party is mine not the
Jackass or the elephant “
