• The ELP Stretch

    by  • August 3, 2012

    We’re shooting on our final location next Wednesday in Colorado Springs; Blue Star Recyclers is one of the stars in the crown of this film project, so we extended the shooting and did some juggling to make it happen.  It’s going to be a little hard on both Kevin and I in the middle...

    After The Fires

    by  • June 27, 2012

    There will be an after.  After lots of expense and worry and trouble, after coughing and crying, there will be more. And it will be So. GREEN. As awful as these fires are, they are natural engineering. The forest is resurrecting itself. It will start a new phase. It will, in a just a...

    The Prissy Fit

    by  • June 10, 2012

      Moths don’t bite, spread disease or try to give you weird religious pamphlets. But you couldn’t tell that in my fitness class. My classmates, all chicks, were doing dances of frantic repulsion whenever the lost moth came near.  I nearly caught it in my hands to let it out, but it got away....

    Dirt, Media and Bull$&!+

    by  • June 7, 2012

    Many people in the sustainability movement tend to be allergic to bull$&!+. They are very nice people.  Very accessible, since they have lots to teach.  And they’re generous and kind and fun, too.  But they don’t like lots of fuss and they want to get down to it.  Get the seedlings in the ground. ...

    New Belgium Visit And Onward

    by  • June 4, 2012

    Kevin and I drove up to Ft Collins on Friday.  It’s a haul if you don’t drive a lot. I enjoy Kevin’s company.  He’s artsy, very smart and a lovely person, and all of these things make it more enjoyable to do this thing. We got Brain Simpson, the media contact for New Belgium,...

    This Is Not The Launch Date

    by  • May 31, 2012

    I was going to launch this blog on June 1st. Here’s why I’m launching in another month, on July 1st… First of all, we’re suddenly having issues with this template accepting embedded video, which is THEE most crucial aspect of a multi-media blog.  It’s a roadblock.

    Bringing Out The Geek

    by  • May 30, 2012

    I’m cat-herding 38 businesses across the Front Range to get the interviews to produce our ELP video. There are many conflicts already, and I’m already juggling, cutting and pasting, apologizing, scrambling and leaving phone messages that beg and wheedle and explain. I’m actually kind of used to this. As a managing editor, a program...

    Income Coming In

    by  • May 29, 2012

    When the universe throws you free anything, dive in. I’ve been thrown a radio job, so I’m diving into it.  It’s national, small-time rock radio with an actual yearly salary and actual medical benefits (the value of insurance is disputable, but there ARE tests that a person can get occasionally which can simplify life...

    2 Beautiful Crop Mob Freaks

    by  • May 22, 2012

    Crop Mobs are insane the way puppies rolling on the floor are insane. They’re so completely imbued with the moment of creating Something Cool that they forget about anything that isn’t fun and good, and they wag and drool and shake in between wheelbarrows and shovels full of manure. It’s THAT FUN. On the...
