Other Lives: An Indie Band to Follow

Live music – last time we experienced this was Devotchka at Neumos years ago.

Other Lives (live) comes up All Roses for me – we saw them at the Tractor Tavern in Seattle and enjoyed everything about this band which you can sample here via KEXP Radio. As a side note, if you’re in Seattle, KEXP studio sessions are live in-studio performances that you can see/hear in person (free) and be sure to say hi to our friend Jim Beckman there, just another awesome human walking the planet.

HARD: Trent Reznor, Taped Shut and the Dragon Tattoo

Trent Reznor doing promotions his way ‡ always a sucker for people who do original, or follow their own drummer as my mom used to say. And in this economy, FREE is the new black, so coming to a city near you – check out the HARD lineup and RSVP Free.

Total Lunar Eclipse: Catch the Portal Saturday December 10, 2011

Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse on Dec 10, 6:36 AM PST [next eclipse April 2014]

The full moon will temporarily lose its shine tomorrow and become completely dark – a unique phenomenon and rare gift – opening a cosmic portal direct to our planet and to us. The activating portal will allow us to expand our experience of being and of living in the present moment. The portal opens at 4:50 a.m. and closes at 8:22 a.m. PST [open 3 hr 32 m with the greatest pull occurring at 6:36 a.m.]


Netflix Streaming: Exit Through the Gift Shop

The scope of people’s non-conforming lives and the ultra fascinating under-the-radar street art world: Banksy’s “Exit Through the Gift Shop” is a collage musically, visually and intellectually with a little twist of lemon at the end. Real or Prank? Who cares, it’s solidly entertaining. Stream on Netflix.

Money and Creative Class: Pile up the Gold and Live Big

Somewhere in your make-up (perhaps in the cells of your brain) there lies sleeping, the seed of achievement which, if aroused and put into action, would carry you to heights, such as you may never have hoped to attain. – Napoleon Hill
