didn’t know i was unamerican

This is a beautiful song and video written by Ian Rhett.




i’m really emotional today.
this song makes me cry

tired of watching all my friends party party
tired of watching myself struggle struggle struggle
trying just to get by
trying to bring a smile to another
trying to find what happiness looks like for me

while greed, war, disease, destruction ravage our heritage, our family

tired of feeling like nothing matters
tired of feeling like we have no voice

tired of being ineffective
tired of being afraid

tired of being lied to
tired of not knowing the truth or anything close to it.

tired of being american

Flock Takedown Coachella 2006

Here’s a rough draft timelapse of the takedown of Flock at Coachella 2006. (Music by Cortex Bomb) I’m planning to document the creation of Michael’s next sculpture for Burning Man 2006 and combine it with footage from Flock’s temporary residence in front of City Hall, SF last year, and the Coachella footage to create a documentary of Michael Christian’s art and the migration of the Burning Man Art Festival aesthetic to the Urban experience. Stay tuned!

Consciousness and Quantum Reality – Nick Herbert

OK. Here’s the download. This is where hard science and new-age thinking align to reveal the mental/spiritual quagmire we are in at this moment in time. It appears to me that we are faced with integrating a new paradigm for understanding and acting in the universe (or perhaps I should say multi-verse?)… and I think this interview explains why everything appears so topsy turvy in our world today. I happened upon this book on a houseboat in Sasaulito last night.
