Keep The Oil In The Ground ~ why #NoDAPL

What can I say when the video says it all. AmazonWatch

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.

 

up we go

shedding husks unfurl

shoots curling staff seedlings gasp

silk sheath sun sight spreads

seven little blue bird haiku tweets

 little bird blues sings

sweet haiku twitters all day

cites poetry cries

&

dandelions know

roots deep leaves sun eat all wells

no weeding pleases

&

coy moon winks sun spring

Persephone steps upward

below Hades sighs

&

control a strong hold

power princes addiction

brain breast brawn beat down

&

eye pouring concrete

iron bars doors fixing space

no outside options

two heron journey

 eye guide far sight mindful nest

streaming feeds sole light

whence goes March’s Ides

cold shouldering yet blood pours

poppy red blossoms

I’m fairly certain Bear will cover some of the more traditional tracks of the vernal equinox, but this selection offers a sort of cover many bases overview. How’s your balance?

Another vantage point that I just couldn’t quite resist because it’s Emily Russo’s school project and, well, honestly I liked the beyond Google Earth aspect. Her perky enthusiastic voice sealed the selection deal:

How Equinox Work – Beyond Our Earth – Unfortunately Emily Russo provided no notes on the music. No, I’m not going to ask her on the tubes of you. Feel free to do so–or to identify the score if you recognize it.

Once you hit play and the images flow it’s pretty clear why this is here. Yeah, I’m a sucker for the image play.

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.

 

Media, Music and Movies ~ For Uranium Mining On Navajo Land, Plus Snow From Sewage

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.

The Wild— Is There Still Such A Thing?

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. 🙂

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:

Oh yeah, humans need fur coats to keep warm in winter. And some beaver hats and polar bear gloves too, please.

Metaphorical musical creativity regarding things out of their cages:

“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.”

“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?

Carnegie Center for Art and History facade, New Albany, IN, Jan. 2014

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.

My sculptures just delivered, Jan. 2014

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…
