Project Season

I joined a new app to find collaborators in Cascadia. I’ll report about how good it works for me and vice versa, called Shapr.

Also joined a team to work on an app/site/media for Taming Bigfoot, a contest in the Seattle area (total leading city in prototyping/activating the clean energy movement). My bandmate & I were talking on the bus the other day, if you want to help things be better, in this case healthier environment, go find the others who are already doing that and help them… voila.

Contest to reduce your personal carbon footprint.

We’re on our way & we got that fire. It’s more that a start it’s a fire!

Rise Up! Action Band played at the 350 Seattle fundraising shindig last night. It was a blast, if you are into helping the planet transition to clean energy, water, food, & fuel, aire like I am go check out 350 in your area & get on board they/we are making good waves. Keep the Oil in the Soil!!

Basphite has been working on an album to sell out of the case. I’m so pumped about this project!

And I’ve been on a quest for 100 subscribers on Youtube “Creativity in Cascadia” so I can unlock more features to start. I’m posting a lot of videos on there, getting a good flow on. Creativity will save the world!

And THIS WEEKEND Seattle paintings by Anna Thoreau are up at The Underground club in Pioneer Square for your third eye’s pleasure.
