Oh, Roos Zwart doesn’t just talk about ART she plants it. She’ll show you how too. Got Oak Trees? Who needs a forest? We do.
The best time to collect your seeds for planting trees for the BRIDGE LAND ART FOREST project is the autumn. You don’t need a small fortune to create a forest, take the time to collect and it will not cost you a penny.
Embrace yourself and go out, autumn weather has sun and rain – perfect condition for collecting seeds to grow trees.
When I went out today I was very lucky and found just what I was looking for. Tiny little oaks, which are not oaks yet but are sure to become oaks in the spring as the acorns germinated already.
It will be hard to grow oaks from acorns if you don’t find ready germinated acorns, trees seem to be particular in when they want to grow and the germination is the start. In them small seeds a true chemical ‘factory’ is hidden that reacts to…

Love trees? Join Roos Zwart and start planting.
Last night I got the idea:
The BRIDGE, a new land art project which involves the planting of trees creating a thousand little and big land art forests all over the world. An ambitious project that can happen with the help of many people becoming land artists in their own environments.
It all started when i went to Rhôd where artists talked about future, nature, culture. A question which has been on my mind for a very long time is: ‘How can culture become nature for the future?’. The land art project Vagdavercustis gave me an answer: work with trees. This project taught me many lessons and i want to share them so there will be many land art forests all over the world.
The idea is not art in the forest, but the forest, the trees, being the art. You can plant the trees in certain patterns on the…

Yes, you too can share and spread the joy of reading with free books from the wonderful people who run World Book Night. What are you waiting for? Just fill out an application to be a Giver any time from now until January 5, 2014. Why wait? It’s not a scam. These are real books and we get to give them to real people. It’s fun, it’s easy, it’ll make you smile. I guarantee it.
April 23rd Is World Book Night
World Book Night site –>> http://www.us.worldbooknight.org/
Browse the Books for 2014 —>> http://www.us.worldbooknight.org/books/2014
How it works:
Each year, 30- 35 books are chosen by an independent panel of librarians and booksellers. The authors of the books waive their royalties and the publishers agree to pay the costs of producing the specially-printed World Book Night U.S. editions. Bookstores and libraries sign up to be community host locations for the volunteer book givers.
After the book titles are announced, members of the public apply to personally hand out 20 copies of a particular title in their community. World Book Night U.S. vets the applications, and the givers are chosen based on their ability to reach light and non-readers. The selected givers choose a local participating bookstore or library from which to pick up the 20 copies of their book, and World Book Night U.S. delivers the books to these host locations.
Givers pick up their books in the week before World Book Night. On April 23rd, they give their books to those who don’t regularly read and/or people who don’t normally have access to printed books, for reasons of means or geography.

I can’t seem to get too far from horror films for this All Hallows Eve theme just yet. All of this could change, be revised soon after it hits the blog casa- or not. I’ve kept close to things that give me the willies, which might not be the same things that give the rest of you the willies. There are a lot of strange things going for the scare-the-hair-off-you brass ring for the picking and biting.
While I wish there was much more music in the form of a traditional soundtrack, the short film Echa makes the most of musical and other sounds in order to create a very effective atmosphere. When the film fades to black keep on listening until the very end for the full musical effect.
Published on Sep 27, 2012
Echoes is the interweaving story of Kasia and Sebastian, a young Polish couple, taken on a metaphysical journey that combats [combines] Polish history, culture and mythology.
Kasia, a young philosophy student, discovers a local history book that stimulates her imagination, forcing her to confront the tragedy of the past manifested in the walls that surround her.
Sebastian and a group of friends plan to rob a train using a deadly sleeping gas, only for their worst fears to materialize in the form of a Polish myth.
This allegorical and surreal look at Polish culture as seen through the eyes of a younger generation is both terrifying and strange.

What can I say except the film trailers for Night Watch and Day Watch are pure self-indulgence on my part. If you’re looking for some film entertainment to get serious about for the dark holy day’s night, then you might enjoy Night Watch and Day Watch as much as I do. Yes, they’re Russian flicks-and yes, they do live up the trailers. Careful that the visuals don’t hypnotize you into forgetting the story line. Hmm. Light versus Dark eternally.

Oh this Swedish vampire film takes the entire cake-walk in my movie book list. I have not seen the American remake. Usually American remakes of great foreign films are very disappointing. Though I have heard this time around it’s not. But, if I’m going to watch a film more than once, well, I’ll Let the Right One In be the best one.

For now, I conclude with the music of the man who headlined my theme choice, Warren Zevon, with his musical rendition of the horror of the ghosts of war-zones everywhere.

Oh yeah, you WANT to catch Willow’s Screaming post before it bites you. I had no idea Annie Lennox ‘did’ vampires. Then again what do you want from a Woman who can sing for a Man the way only Annie can. Oh and yes, True Blood will be joining Being Human for creep fixes.
You want MUSIC? Bearspawprint has it in spades. I think The Bear has been saving up for this theme. Yes, I do indeed. She’s been collecting all sorts of sound and sight goodies in her swamplands.
Okay, I dare anyone to find a theme for which Johnny can NOT find an R.E.M. song. Seriously, he pulls one out of his musical vaults every time. It’s great.

Okay my friends, Bear, Willow, and Johnny, this is wide open to music, films, art, poetry, self created works–whatever trips your All Hallows Eve Trap-Door just in time for Halloween–and the Days of the Dead too, if you’re so inclined to swing a noose that direction. All interested parties are welcome to join in this little scream music festival. Just select six items, some of us can’t contain ourselves –or we just can’t decide between some fun and some other fun, so we go for all the fun. But, basically, we’re looking for a nice baseline of six scary pieces with some musical connection for All Hallows Eve. I hope the late, great, Mr. Warren Zevon’s song serves as an example to illustrate just one way of playing in this metaphorical graveyard.

When willowdot21 picked “Animals” as a theme I went a little overboard for a time collecting music for all sorts of relatives. “Buffalo Moon” goes a ways for the concept of animals in general–including a few of ‘us’. It was getting very crowded in my blogcasa. which is not exactly suited to being an ark. So I decided to narrow things down to one particular animal—the Horse. I figured a focus on one wonderful creature would help my sanity. It did. Even so I barely touched even the tip of the Horse iceberg. One reason I settled on the Horse was to highlight the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary in South Dakota. The videos explain things pretty well so I’m not going to say more than that you can find them on the book of faces where they post many wonderful photographs of the horses in residence. The following is from a recent email newsletter:
Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary has received rescued Navajo Foals
In making a public statement against horse slaughter in any form; The Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary partnered with Wild For Life Foundation’s Navajo Rescue and Recovery Mission in early October 2013. Approximately 1,600 horses and burros were swept away from their Native homes as a result of the recent Navajo Nation roundups and were reportedly shipped for slaughter. Many foals and other young horses were left behind to perish. Wild for Life’s rescue efforts gathered the foals and sent out requests for help.
The Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary along with three other sanctuaries have taken the rescued foals and given them life time homes. The three foals; two fillies and a colt arrived at their new forever home in South Dakota on October 8th.
The goal at the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary is to save lives, offer hope and grant freedom to wild horses in peril. We hope this partnership, with Wild for Life Foundation, will continue into the future by helping other wild foals/horses in peril.

Wild Horse Sanctuary Preservation Project (2011)
Gabriela (Sulphur Mustang Mare). Translation: Warrior of God: Her lovely black brown color reminds one of dark chocolate melting in the prairie sun. Gabriela and her mother Houlihan, a Sulphur Mustang Mare from the Sulphur Springs HMA, were donated to the Sanctuary in 2006. Gabriela was just a weanling and she hid behind her mother. Now at age 4, she has her own friends and lives bravely in a band of younger Spanish Mustang Spirits.
The Spanish Mustang Spirit of the Black Hills preservation project was begun in early in 2002. The Spanish, Sulphur, Kiger, and Sorraia Mustangs here at the Sanctuary in these herds are a direct remnant of the horses of the Golden Age of Spain, which is wholly extinct in Spain. The bloodlines are a treasure chest of genetic wealth from time long ago. These mustangs are very capable and durable mounts but have been undervalued for the last hundred years. The purpose of this project is to promote and conserve rare bloodlines that go back to the Old World Spanish and Portuguese Horses that came to the New World with the Conquistadors in search of riches. The Spanish Horses that were left behind by the explorers were worth more than the gold they had discovered. These Spanish Mustang Spirit horses forever changed the history man in the Americas.

I’ve included this Pure Nature Special about Przewalski’s Horses because it’s about an effort to restore what was lost from the wild with what was ‘saved’ in various parts of the world. It does have a great deal of music throughout it. The footage is excellent. I knew nothing of this effort and had never heard of Przewalski’s Horses until I saw a photograph of one at Labellestudio’s blogcasa. Actually that’s not quite accurate because I had seen pictures of these horses as cave art. I thought they were extinct. But, then I visited Labellestudio and learned differently. Thanks Labelle!

Ah Pook is Here
AH POOK IS HERE – This 1994 stop-frame interpretation of recordings by the late William S. Burroughs, was crafted around a selection of tracks from the album “Dead City Radio” produced by Hal Willner & Nelson Lyon – and featuring music by John Cale.
AH POOK received Ten international film awards, was archived in the Goethe institute, and was part of the Burroughs retrospective PORTS OF ENTRY. AH POOK was also voted ‘BEST OF THE BEST’ at the 2010 Stuttgart International Trickfilm festival.
The Guardian review:
“Phillip Hunt’s gorgeous, grisly animation mates William Burroughs’s gravelly narration of Ah Pook The Destroyer’s death-dealing parable with music by John Cale at his creepiest. Hunt’s deliberate and disgusting illustrations of Burrough’s monsters of the mind are a revelation; delicately articulated puppets riddled with revolting detail. Turn down the lights, get out the headphones, and give yourself over to The Master’s ghastly visions and sonorous warnings (“The world cannot be controlled, except by accident”) for six gut-churning minutes.”

This is a tribute to both William Burroughs and Hiroshima. It’s a video I have been wanting to put together for some time now and release on the day of concern.

Yes, you really do want to visit abraveheart1’s blogcasa and follow the link to the entire photo gallery for this action. It’s something to SEE. The ocean currents move –as do the air currents. Yes, Fukushima has come to the USA and other parts of the globe. Surf’s up~~~~~
Radioactive ocean water from the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant disaster was first detected along the coastline of California in March of 2012. Researchers already know that radioactive iodine from Fukushima has arrived in California, and expect peak levels af radiation to hit California in 2016. The problem appears to be worsening as typhoons have caused overflows of radioactive water into the Pacific Ocean.
With the radiation already rolling in, a group of advocates called the Fukushima Response Campaign organized a “human mural” protest Saturday morning, spelling out the words ‘Fukushima is Here’ in letters 100 feet in length on San Francisco’s Ocean Beach.
Organizers are alarmed at the increasing levels of radioactive steam and radioactive iodine being found in coastal California waters, all the result of fallout from the earthquake and tsunami that hit the Fukushima plant more than two years ago. “A threat…
