How much of your life do you want to share with virtually strangers “friends of friends”?
And another philosophical concept I will present here is “Retaliation”
That energy goes into the Universe. I mean, it can’t be that strong, but it’s just interesting…….
It’s been four hours since I posted this “poetry” a stretch I am sure into the network to relieve my soul…..
war or jealously (neither i want in me)
………………………………………………………………………………………………………maybe this is cheap but it brings laughter or release & sweet relief thru art my go to savior where I choose to direct this piss energy
Writing words, sharing them it’s dope. And noodling on the piano. Peace.
Rise Up! Action Band is a new rally band in Seattle, who’s mascot is an Action Crab and comes out to support the Marches for solidarity, the cause, and righteous vibe. Coming to May day workers rights next. Power to the People!
“We gather together to play music and perform at resistance events. We use music, chanting, dancing, and performance to amplify the uproar made by the thousands of people enduring and witnessing injustices in our communities. We do this for the oppressed and voiceless, and for the betterment of all people. We create more than music, we create solidarity. We are Rise Up! Action Band.”

Pinch the Patriarchy!
This band shows up at various marches and rallies for the power to the people movement to rock positive since we’re all in this together now!
Marches swung to New Orleans tunes at the Seattle rally in Capital Hill today.
Spread peace humans.
Started on an awesome environmental solutions and awareness gig at Surf Incubator in downtown Seattle, a short skate to Pioneer Square. Loving it!
Seattle is amazing! Such an excellent place to be for a young professional/musician. Played music tonight with a great friend, and omg we sounded so good together, just singing our hearts out! Talked about playing out, we’ll just have to see where it goes, but in the meantime, I am thanking Santa and the Universe for my good fortune with my latest client, and it’s for the health of our Planet Home to heck yeah. Peace.
Here is a sweet idea, not original, but we could level up. I’m just trying to to run with it, and hype it.
How can we give help to our fellow humans in need as a Christmas gift?
I know we want all our stuff, and um, we also have to help all these people– right? and I’m not saying just give them money. I’m saying let’s build profitable industry to help them, that will create jobs, and hype goodwill and brotherhood into our ethos. Flex it promote it, hype it get involved and take figuring out how to do it on. Be interested, make this issue part of our regular routine of priorities. We are totally all in this together.
There are so many people in need. Here in Seattle alone there are copious homeless people all over the place. Sleeping in bus stops, doorways, wrapped in blankets standing on the sidewalk. Staying warm in the library and Starbucks, etc.
Take this theme of “Helping Our Fellow Humans” get on their feet in a way that they want to, to hackathons. Make MEMEs, post them, care. I know there are tons of caring people who do a lot, let’s keep organizing and keep attracting investment around this. The more of us that commit just 3% of our attention to this industry, I’m not even calling it a cause because industry is more powerful, and profitable and in our current economic system industry is how things get done.
Thanks for reading, Merry Christmas! We’re doing great, let’s keep it up!
