Do We Deserve To Exist Any Longer? What Would Michael Jackson Say?

Nothing like music to get one’s emotions stoked. Michael Jackson was such a talented sensitive soul.

Michael Jackson | Earth Song


Well, from what I remember from Michael Jackson’s posthumous movie, This Is It, Michael thought we needed to stop the devastation immediately or else we’re definitely effed for good. Remember, this song was released back in 1995. That’s over 15 years ago.  Has anyone seen how the rain forests, et al have changed since then?

When you think about what we’ve be doing, the question comes up – Do we deserve to keep on going?

The entity to ask this to isn’t so much each other than it is our home, Mother Earth.  A sincere apology is probably a good start followed by a commitment to change for the better.  Maybe it’s already out of our hands and She’s retaliating slowly but surely.  It could be that it’s all a part of some elaborate program. I’m not one to put much stock into 2012 from a prophecy standpoint, unless you consider the self-fulfilling kind where you give up and are resolved to experience a certain outcome.

It’s as if we are at war with the earth. But we are not separate from it, therefore we are really at war with ourselves. We deny our connection to each other, the animals, the plants, the ocean, the earth, the stars.

We are all one, yet most of us live in the false idea of separation, largely in part to the wonderful nature of duality. That’s the secret.  Duality exists for us to appreciate the unlimited variety of expression of life. But what we need to remember that above the duality is the oneness that encompasses all.

The ALL is in all of us and we are all part of the ALL. The separation is only perception from each of our limited consciousness.

I’ll post a similar topic in a few days regarding this subject.

some background info on the video [taken from Wikipedia]

The video was filmed in four geographic regions. The first location was the Amazon Rainforest, where a large part was destroyed a week after the video’s completion. Natives of the region appeared in the video and were not actors. The second scene was a war zone in Croatia, with famous Serbian-born Croatian actor Slobodan Dimitrijević and the residents of the area. The third location was Tanzania, which incorporated scenes of illegal poaching and hunting into the video. No animals were harmed in the making of the “Earth Song”, as the footage came from documentary archives. However, a poacher killed an elephant within a mile of the shot. The final location was in Warwick, New York, where a safe forest fire was simulated in a corn field

F-N-F | Friday Night Film | The Future of Food

F-N-F | Friday Night Film April 8th, 2011

In case you haven’t figured it out yet, healthy lifestyle is part of my thing.

The Future Of Food (2004)

This documentary came out November 13, 2007 according to the info on Hulu  – less than 4 years ago as of this posting. However, when checking out the history of the film on it’s OWN website, I found this:

The Future of Food has been a key tool in the American and international anti-GMO grassroots activist movements and played widely in the environmental and activist circuits since its release in 2004. The film is widely acknowledged for its role in educating voters and the subsequent success of passing Measure H in Mendocino County, California, one of the first local initiatives in the country to ban the planting of GMO crops. Indicative of its popularity, the Future of Food showed to a sold out audience of 1,500 at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco in 2004, a benefit for Slow Food, where it was introduced by Alice Waters. [source]

Like Food Inc. and The World According To Monsanto, it is an eye opener for many as to what’s being done to our food supply.  Remember, knowledge is power and ignorance breeds complacency and allows for ease of control.  Keep informed!

The Future Of Food offers an in-depth investigation into the disturbing truth behind engineered foods that have quietly filled U.S. grocery store shelves for the past decade

Enjoy the film:

April Fools Day All Ya Pranksters

I’m bringing back the EffEnEff – aka Friday Night Film or Friday Night Funny – whichever fits the bill.

Tonight I share two TED Talks that I like – most of them are sooo good it’s hard to choose just one.

Number one is Jamie Oliver and his Food Revolution movement.

Sharing powerful stories from his anti-obesity project in Huntington, W. Va., TED Prize winner Jamie Oliver makes the case for an all-out assault on our ignorance of food.

Jamie Oliver’s TED Prize wish: Teach every child about food

Number two is Magician David Blaine explaining how he was able to hold his breath for 17 minutes

breaking the world record – and what his often death-defying work means to him.

New Irish Green Gem Juice Drink For St Patrick’s Day

Happy St Patrick’s 2011

Thanks to the local City Idiot for this gem.

JUST IN TIME FOR ST PADDY’S DAY

HERE’S A TWIST ON A FAVORITE OF MINE



Since i am often the DD – “designated driver” verses the luckier DD – “designated drunk”, I have to find a non-alcoholic beverage to consume while out at the clubs, bars, restaurants and parties.

YOU GET THE LUCKY LEPRACHAUN

GOLD RUNNING THRU YOUR VEINS!

So what’s better than tiger blood juice and a perfect drink for St Patrick’s Day?

why, Lucky Irish Gem Juice!

Careful how you say that. Don’t let drunk friends order it as if they’re slurring their speech  it could sound like you’re asking for Jim Juice, aka Jim Jones Blue Kool-Aid suicide drink. Just remember Green Good. Blue Bad. Simple alliteration memory jogger there. GG good, BB bad.

This drink can pass as non-alcoholic and safe for the non-idiots to drink who are the chosen ones to take their village idiot and city idiot buddies home from their favorite Irish Pub this St Paddy’s day.  An excellent choice for those who choose not to imbibe the green beer monster.

LUCKY IRISH GEM JUICE (inventor – Terry P Carter)

Drink Recipe:

  • Ginger Ale
  • Ice
  • Bitters –  i like the taste – it really amps up the ginger ale.  Bitters does have alcohol but it’s like the equivalent of adding vanilla extract to a drink. A few drops aren’t going to do anything to your sobriety. Here’s a few BITTERS I like to use.
  • Chloroxygen – 4 to 10 drops will do the trick depending on how ‘healthy and energetic’ you want to make the drink.

REGULAR Chloroxygen or MINT Chloroxygen can be used depending on your preference.

be sure to use $5.00 coupon IHE882 @ iHerb.com

to get your Lucky Leprechaun Magic Elixir, aka CHLOROXYGEN today.

*disclaimer 1*

THE LUCKY IRISH LEPRACHAUN GRASS  is actually CHLOROXYGEN chloropyll supplement – great for natural energy boost and great for solving and avoiding altitude sickness / acclimating yourself to high altitude especially if you are like me and live most of the time near sea level.

*disclaimer 2*

Regarding the video – it’s my interpretation of a city idiot – urban version of the Village idiot.

It’s not polished, predictable, professional, etc. and it’s not supposed to be. He’s an IDIOT, duh.

It’s a bit off, stupid, and just a little out there…. although as with the special idiot savant variety, there’s always a little bit of wisdom in older idiots – they are most likely the smartest of the bunch as they are still alive.

. . . and yes, i AM Irish but pretty far removed from the homeland – ancestors bailed out of the Blarney ages ago.

Solfeggio Music Player 528Hz

528Hz Solfeggio Musical Instrument

Here’s a fun musical instrument you can experiment with available on my friend down under’s website.

by dragging your mouse over the ‘notes’ you can play the Solfeggio scale:

63Hz – 174Hz – 285Hz – 396Hz – 417Hz – 528Hz – 639Hz – 741Hz – 852Hz – 963Hz – 1074Hz and 1185Hz.

I found you can play a Solfeggio version of the theme to Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

on the equal temperment scale the opening notes are A-B-G-G(octave lower)-D

On Solfeggio, try playing 963 – 1074 – 852 – 417 – 639.

Try your hand at the Solfeggio Player Here

>>528hz Solfeggio Player<<

Wonder if Speilberg or John Williams or whoever was responsible for that melody to communicate with the aliens in the movie has any significance or just coincidence.

Some of the frequencies are claimed to be associated with chakras and healing tones:

  • 396 Hz – Releasing emotional patterns.
  • 417 Hz – Breaking up crystallized emotional patterns.
  • 528 Hz – Love frequency “DNA integrity and repair”.
  • 639 Hz – Whole brain quadrant interconnectedness. Connecting Relationships.
  • 741 Hz – Intuitive states & non-linear knowing. Awakening Intuition.
  • 852 Hz – Pure love: unconditional love and returning to Spiritual Order.

Jandy’s site also has some great Binaural beat music that is great for

meditation, relaxation and general tripping out.


Borucan Costa Rica Rainforest Masks At Selby Gardens

Here’ s my personal gallery and account of the

2009 Costa Rica Rainforest Mask exhibition at Selby Gardens @ Sarasota Florida.

For the most part, I will let the pictures of the masks speak for me.

That year, prices ranged from $200 to $1000 for the long totum-like mask.  Most were priced in the 400-500 range.  All masks were exquisite in their detail and as colorful as the rainforest from which they originated. These are from the Costa Rican rainforest. Originally I was thinking Amazon=Brazil, Peru, etc… But of course, not all rainforests are found in the amazon . . . Just conditioned to go there right away – blame it on Child of the 80s symdrome.

Borucan Mask-Making: The Men Behind the Masks

Almost 20 years ago, Borucan mask-making was nearly lost as an art form. One man, Don Ismael Gonzalez, took it upon himself to re-invigorate the carving tradition by teaching it to a group of young boys. Today the new master carvers are the teachers of a new generation of apprentices. As a result, the Borucan people have a renewed pride in their customs.

There are three distinct styles of masks, each of which tells a specific story about Borucan culture. The first is the Diablito, or devil mask, which comes directly from the festival El Jeugo de LosDiablitos. It is the most traditional, dating back to the Spanish occupation of the region. The second is the Ecologica, featuring the plants and animals of the rainforest. These were originated by the new generation of artists concerned about the imminent threat to their culture form the destruction of their environment. The third is the Combinados. These masks are a metamorphosis of both the Dialito and the Ecologica. They represent the coming together of the old traditions with the new generation.

All masks are original one of a kind designs carved from balsa wood and cedar. The artists use acrylic paint to adorn the balsa images and traditional hand-hewn tools to carve. The design is drawn onto the front surface and then carved. This process creates a relief out of one piece of wood.

Orchids: Nature’s Perfect Mask

Note – Selby gardens started as a Orchid research facility.

A mask by definition is an object that hides reality and enhances an image for the purpose of eliciting a predictable response. Sometimes it mimics a powerful and fearsom entity and in other cases it acts to seduce in order to continue its existence.

The Borucan Indians of Costa Rica are continuing their rich tradition of mask making to ensure their survival. Originally, the masks were used as a ritual defense against the Spanish Invaders. Today they are an exquisite example of an art form which has captured our awareness and invited us to help perpetuate this significant custom.

As with the mask, the orchids image has been specially crafted by Nature through color, shape and aroma to attract the one significant insect or animal suited for its propagation. For this reason Nature has perfected a mask making tradition of its own.

The Rainforest Mask Exhibit is coming back for it’s 7th time at Selby Gardens starting this March 4th 2011 through April 15th.

The Borucans will demonstrate their carving and painting during four “Meet the Artists” sessions in the Museum of Botany and the Arts on Saturdays and Sundays, March 5, 6, 12 & 13 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. Spanish interpreters will be available to translate your questions.

ChlorOxygen Benefits of Chlorophyll Supplement

I wanted to add an update on the benefits of the supplement ChlorOxygen.

First off, what the heck is Chlorophyll?

Chlorophyll is the green pigment in plants that harnesses the sun’s energy in photosynthesis. Chlorophyll performs metabolic functions in plants such as respiration and growth.

OK, so why would I, who am NOT a plant, want to take it?

Well, if any of the following apply to you, that’s why:

  1. Alleviate suffering from high altitude sickness naturally and FAST! Symptoms of altitude sicknes include shortness of breath, headache, disorientation, nausea.
  2. Desire to increase red blood cell oxygenation – explains why it works so good on relieving altitude sickness.
  3. You’d like more life energy from a natural source that’s not caffeine or some other stimulant.

I think of ChlorOxygen as INSTANT ALTITUDE ACCLIMATION in a bottle – Just Add Water!

This is  a link to my personal story

SO WHAT’s the best brand to take and where do I buy it?

PURCHASE ChlorOxygen Regular

BUY ChlorOxygen Mint


Remember to use code IHE882 to save $5.00 to $10.00 off your first order!

Each ounce of Herb’s Etc. Chlorophyll Concentrate contains as much Chlorophyll as one or two 16 ounce bottles of other brands. Each ounce contains approximately 2,950 milligrams of Chlorophyll.

What makes ChlorOxygen Chlorophyll Concentrate such  an awesome product?

  • It is the best tasting chlorophyll on the market.
    More consumers choose ChlorOxygen for its mild yet tasty sweet grass taste over other chlorophyll brands.
  • It is preservative-free and alcohol-free.
    Since ChlorOxygen is low in water, it does not need preservatives like other chlorophyll products. It is also alcohol-free.
  • It is the only chlorophyll that doesn’t require refrigeration.
    ChlorOxygen is the only liquid chlorophyll on the market that doesn’t require refrigeration, which makes it way convenient. This is very helpful especially when traveling.
  • It offers superior value.
    ChlorOxygen is highly concentrated. It takes up to two 16 oz. bottles of the competition’s chlorophyll to equal a one ounce bottle of Chloroxygen. So you know you’re getting excellent value for your money with ChlorOxygen Chlorophyll Concentrate.

SUGGESTED Use: Each 36-drop dose delivers 100 milligrams of Chlorophyll Concentrate. Take 18-36 drops twice a day in 8 ounces of water.

Caution: Dark green stools may occur.  I have found this to be true when taking it for the first time or when I haven’t taken any in a while and consuming the maximum daily suggested amount.  However, the body seems to acclimate to this after a day or two and that side effect tends to diminish.

Chloroxygen is USA grown and manufactured by Herbs Etc.  It is organic, GMO-free, pesticide-free and BSE safe.

Consider this: over 60% of the dietary supplement ingredients currently come from China. Herbs Etc. is American, family run organic business.

*Crash* Glass By Corning for the Future

Ok, so this was pretty cool, but my question is, is it sharp when it shatters?

Personally, I like the windows that black out / photosensitive for privacy/shade.
Don’t care for the bathroom mirror acting as anything other than a reflector of non-augmented reality.
The cell phone being semi-translucent on the backside made no sense other than “ooh, aren’t we cool? Look how sophisticated our tech is”… to me, I’m thinking, where’s the privacy on your call?Why would you want people able to see the reverse image of who you are calling on the backside?
The whole dashboard of glass on the car? How thick is that – meaning, how much heavier is it than current materials?
Bottom line, glass cleaners and micro fiber cloths will be VERY POPULAR.

Proud to be Chinese Shoes?

Ok, for all of those people who want to keep purposely buying Chinese made shoes (can you say NIKE?) and don’t care about playing ignorant to the fact you are helping China buy more and more of the US one step at a time, why not embrace it whole-heartedly and help the Li-Ning brand make it big in America.

I have to say, this commercial they put on YouTube is rather funny – full of stereo-types and jokes. But like every other ad – it’s just using humor to push product. That said, enjoy a laugh if you dare 😛

Some funny quotes from the vid (seems like most of the good lines are given to the Indian:

It’s cow’s head … I know cows, trust me I know cows.

Eff me? Eff you!

Why is it wet if it’s waterproof?

Kiss him… kiss him! Suck his face!

I’m li-ning towards kicking your ass!

the Indian talking in mocking chinese – “engwish”

The Indian actor reminds me of an older version of actor Ajai Naidu from Office Space fame.

Social Media Revolution

Oh, HAPPY 2011!

Ok got that out of the way…

Found this video on Social Media and it’s impact on the world.  Reminds me of a comment a naive professor said about the pointlessness and uselessness of the internet back in the early 90s…. He had to eat a dead bird for that one.

This video speaks for itself.

OH, and here’s the first one I remember seeing about a year earlier:
