This is why oil should stay in the ground.
This is why no one needs another pipeline.
This is why protectors are standing strong at Standing Rock in North Dakota and Iowa to protect water and earth.
This matters to everyone on Earth.

roots deep leaves sun eat all wells
no weeding pleases
coy moon winks sun spring
Persephone steps upward

control a strong hold
power princes addiction
brain breast brawn beat down
eye pouring concrete
iron bars doors fixing space
no outside options

streaming feeds sole light
whence goes March’s Ides
cold shouldering yet blood pours
poppy red blossoms

Thanks to the Black Hills Clean Water Alliance of South Dakota for bringing this event to my attention. The Clean Water Alliance continues to fight the Powertech Uranium Mining Company in South Dakota –> http://www.sdcleanwateralliance.org/
The “Final” Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) issued by the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission for the proposed Dewey-Burdock uranium mine is substantially deficient. The mine, proposed by Chinese/Canadian company Powertech Uranium, would use 9,000 gallons per minute of groundwater from Black Hills aquifers, contaminate area water, and open the door for eight other uranium companies that have an interest in the Black Hills.
A Blank Hills Clean Water Alliance Press Release warns that the NRC has put the cart before the horse – they have published a “Final” SEIS – and chosen a final alternative for project design – before they have completed the cultural resources analysis. This analysis is required by law to be completed before this document was issued. The SEIS notes that the analysis is “ongoing.” This relegates the cultural studies to afterthoughts, and necessarily limits NRC’s ability to protect these important resources.
The NRC is accepting public comment on the Final SEIS in the form of limited appearance statements. You can make your voice heard – click here to learn how.

Yes, it’s Monday. It’s St. Patrick’s Day. It’s national beer drinking day for a lot of folks.
But it’s also another day in the ongoing fight against uranium mining and its consequences everywhere from the past to the present.
On March 14, 2014 independent journalist Amy Goodman reported from Flagstaff, Arizona about the ongoing environmental and health issues connected with uranium mining and its long-term consequences for the Dine ~ Navajo people. The main portion of her video report is posted here but there is a great deal more information and related coverage on Democracy Now!’s site. Part of the Democracy Now! broadcast discussed the use of music and film by to raise awareness and share information regarding issues. To supplement DN!’s coverage I’ve included two videos featuring Klee Benally’s music and an informative video about Outta Your Backpack Media which teaches Indigenous people how to make and use movies to address the need for media justice and coverage in their communities. There’s a trailer for the film The Return of Navajo Boy which is referenced in the news piece. The film’s website –> http://navajoboy.com/. Democracy Now!’s page for the story also includes links to information and related stories.

As The Borg say–> “Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated.”
I’ve given up resisting the faux serious slant this post on The Wild demands to take.
Deal with it.
Or not. No one is stopping you from cybersurfing to greener Wild blogland pastures.
Git along little bloggers. 🙂
Some inanity offering deadly serious insights into modern contemporary humankind:
Dude vs. Wild – The Arctic
Still think there’s hope for domesticated humanity?
Yeah, hey I’ve got an oil rig you can buy cheap. Yep, you too can pump your own gasoline.
S&H Green Stamps anyone?
You heard the background music, right?
The Wild reality which is steadily vanishing due to exploding human bomb explosions in all directions and humankind’s absolute disregard for all other living things:
Wild ~ National Geographic Living Music Action
Metaphorical musical creativity regarding things out of their cages:
LP ~ Into The Wild
“Who let the birds out?”
“As in the ladies?”
“No, the bird, literally.”
“Oh bummer. I guess this isn’t an escort parody advert featuring Thelma and Louise. Damn.”
“Nope. Sorry. No wolf whistling allowed today.”
Hmm, no obese wolves fattened on prime Angus cattle or milk-fed lamb-burgers. Just, well, inflated zebras and friends playing dodge ball.
“Give it a try. Come on, don’t be shy.”
“Don’t wanna. No way.”
“Ah come on, that’s what that fast food tummy is for–rolly poly games. Get ready for the next reality show.”
“What’s with these dudes?”
Steppenwolf ~ Born to be Wild
“Someone needs a barber.”
“Where did those leather pants come from? Is that your brother’s skin on the singer’s ass?”
I’m not so sure how this got here. True confession time: the snakes enticed me all the way. Intense music though, right? Makes you wonder about what people will do for television ratings. Or should that be, what they won’t do?

Go visit Al’s Show! Yes, now! Go have some fun! 🙂
On January 24 our long-awaited exhibition at the Carnegie Center for Art and History in New Albany, Indiana opened with a big reception. I say “our” because this is a two person show featuring work by R. Michael Wimmer and yours truly. The exhibition in entitled “The Potential in Everything” because both Michael and I utilize a diversity of materials to make our art. While I depend on what I find at the river, Michael goes much further afield to locate objects that project a certain “aura” and associative power for him. Following are some images from the exhibition which will be up until April 5.
I brought about 25 pieces that I had saved from the river and park visitors. I have gotten into the habit of keeping some of my better creations for events like this. It’s such a big leap first seeing the work at the river…
