So here it is, I’m sitting at work and wondering why. I’m the marketing manager at an event marketing agency in NYC, and I’ve simply lost the desire, the focus and the drive. Partially because of internal office stress, partially because I’ve become so disillusioned with society, but most of all I’ve become angry and almost hateful of big business. I “Influence Consumer Purchase Decision”, that’s what we do… Influence, twist, and make people buy unhealthy product that they don’t need. Like… Continue

I would like to call your attention to my current project, which aims mainly to raise public awareness of the issues and impacts of the non-consensual development of oil sands in Alberta, and of the various organizations taking action against it. It also advocates the use of… Continue
Venus, the planet of artisans or Shukra (in Sanskrit) has been high in the Winter night sky and is only going to get brighter toward the end of January 2009. Venus is one of our brightest objects in the sky, only second to the Sun and our Moon, followed by grandiose Jupiter in brightness.
After the new moon and Solar eclipse on Jan 25th (midnight) PST, the moon will begin waxing toward beautiful Venus. So, on January 27th, 28th, 29th and 30th the moon will be growing in size and be either… Continue

To the 54 people who watched the video I posted: I'm sorry I put that up and you watched it. I saw it again for the first time in almost two years, and it is was absolutely horrible. Really bad. I'm sure any one who watched it thinks I am lame. And with good reason; I don't make a very good case for myself in it. I am actually not a total bimbo, surfer kid, contrary to how I presented myself. Sorry again.

As January is the throws of rearing it's ugly head and I endure the evenly metered out pains ascribed to this month. I find myself a mess but hanging on with both arms. Some years, January creates a catatonic self imposed exile where even the quiet silence it too difficult to endure. Other years I spend the entire month in a system overload of stimuli running from everyone and especially my thoughts. I think this is one of those hybrid years… Continue

To all the artist who entered the "Best of 2008" and for those who chose not to. Have a Blessed Day. Artist all have a gift whether its alike or different, we all have that gift and it's built inside each and eveyone of us. And that's unity. We all came together for unknown reasons, but for some to win. I'm happy I had the chance to meet new friends and old. The time is dwindling down to the deadline and my blessings are with each one of you guys.
