Whether it’s onscreen, or behind the camera, I hope you can contribute to this project. Parts of the One Day in San Diego project might be included in the One Day on Earth feature film. As a person aspiring to make my living producing video and films, this project feels simultaneously fun, important and rewarding. I will still have to do a little brainstorming and research (and what-not) to decide on the approach to answering the questions that I selected. But it would basically be talking to people walking around on the street and asking them the questions in the bullets below.

All filming will be done on Saturday, April 26th. I intend to spend a large part of the day capturing footage for the project, so if you want to join in, speak up! I have selected these 3 Questions as the topic for my film:

One Day In San Diego : Your Day. Your City. Your Future. [Trailer]

Who wants to join me?

 

Whether it’s onscreen, or behind the camera, I hope you can contribute to this project. Parts of the One Day in San Diego project might be included in the One Day on Earth feature film. As a person aspiring to make my living producing video and films, this project feels simultaneously fun, important and rewarding. I will still have to do a little brainstorming and research (and what-not) to decide on the approach to answering the questions that I selected. But it would basically be talking to people walking around on the street and asking them the questions in the bullets below.

All filming will be done on Saturday, April 26th. I intend to spend a large part of the day capturing footage for the project, so if you want to join in, speak up! I have selected these 3 Questions as the topic for my film:

  • What is the best thing happening in San Diego today?

This question is one that can be researched ahead of time, so as to find interesting events to show up to for the purpose of getting more interview footage on the other two questions, and to provide a structure for the film. The answer could be general or specific to the day. It’s an open-ended question that might get people thinking about their community.

  • Who is San Diego not serving?

As an example, a group that is currently not being served are those that are just on the brink of self-sufficiency, not quite homeless, but a long way from enjoying economic recovery. The working poor, the recently unemployed, and the underemployed. San Diego has an oversupply of qualified people for the dwindling number of jobs and more arriving every day. Vocational schools and diploma mills prey mercilessly on this group and many end up incurring more debt to try to keep up with the ever-changing job market in this age of innovation. That’s my example, who would you say?

  • How are people changing the future of San Diego?

This question might be my participants’ chance to advocate for their pet projects and causes. I would allow more time for people to answer this question. I would also like to find those who have a particularly compelling story that answers this question. So, yes, I am looking for people to tell their story of how they are changing the future of San Diego! If no one has such a story, this is a place to ask people for their highest hopes for the future.

So what do you think? Do the four or five people that have read this blog have any interest in joining my team? Yes, the part I signed up for is is local to San Diego (but this project has a bunch of cities participating on April 26th) check this flyer out for more information:  odoe_onesheet_sandiego

I am going to be re-posting this until the 26th so sorry for the spam, spam, spam.

Here’s the organization’s website where you can sign up yourself:

Party!

Spirit Science- have you heard of it?

    I hesitated to blog about this interesting video series, because some of the concepts that are covered in this series may be challenging for some, and incredulous for others. The oddly-modulated voice of “patchman” the narrator, Jordan, sounds vaguely familiar from some other YouTube videos I’ve happened upon before, notably “Zeitgeist.” Jordan and friends apparently base much of the information in the series on the writings of Master Shaman Drunvalo Melchizidek, but as the series goes on, he cites many, many sources for what seems like, at least if you believe it, The Secret to Life, The Universe and Everything. Yes, there are a lot of places in the Spirit Science series where it seems like fantasy or storytime, but  it resonates strongly with me. I am enthusiastically sharing this with the select few that tune into my tiny little corner of the Universe to see what happens to be floating through my attention span.


I hope someone else decides to sit through all four hours that encompasses episodes 1-15, because I would love to have some serious conversations with other people who have seen these videos. I am less inclined to believe some of the human history content of the videos over other topics, however I like so much of this, maybe because I think it does a very good job of reconciling scientific knowledge, nature and natural processes with spiritual ideas that happen to appeal to me at this stage of my life. But even more than that, these concepts have been presented to me by people close to me, and it’s kind of like finding out that there is an online school for spirituality that explains concepts that more enlightened people often assume others just “know.”
I realize that I only have a few readers, but I would love to know what other people think about Spirit Science. Watch it. Share your thoughts with me.

The Ultimate Cheat Sheet For Reinventing Yourself | TechCrunch

The Ultimate Cheat Sheet For Reinventing Yourself | TechCrunch.

I posted a link to this article on Facebook several months ago, when I started feeling myself searching around for help to get my bearings. My life had changed several times in the previous year or so, and I felt very shaky and insecure. This article contained exactly what I needed at the time to carry on and more importantly gave me permission to think bigger and more clearly about what I wanted from my life.

Today as I re-read this article I was happy to see that I have progressed from Year 1 in the author’s timeline to Year 2. That discovery was simultaneously encouraging and scary. It means that the edge that I was living on then is now the comfort zone that is holding me back from increasing success and achievement. The process of reinvention (growth) seems to be the result of being honest with oneself about our desires combined with the improvement in one’s ability to let go of attachment to outcomes. Decide what you want to be; what makes you happiest right now, and then let go and be. Want to be a photographer? Take pictures! Don’t just dream your dreams, own your dreams!

My First Video “Ocean Healing”

Presenting my first short film…

The nuclear disaster at Fukushima created an unprecedented environmental catastrophe. Joy is leading a healing ceremony just like the one in the film at Swami’s Beach in Encinitas California, March 22, 2014. Everyone is invited! Come out and participate!

Here is the Facebook link to the World Water Day event March 22, 2014

Love and gratitude to Greg Young who shot the High Definition video, and especially to Joy Phoenix for this being made at all. I cannot claim any credit for anything but editing. I hope that this helps get people to Swami’s Beach on March 22nd.

8 Things Guys Secretly Love

Originally posted on James Michael Sama:

Whether a guy is just starting to date a woman or is in a committed relationship with her, there are small things that she may do without thinking twice that guys secretly love.

While there are many, here are eight to start.

Laying your head on his chest.

When laying on the couch watching TV or laying in bed after a long day, it’s one of the best feelings when a woman lays her head down on your chest and puts her arm over you.

As men, we enjoy feeling as though we are being protective, and this signifies that she feels safe in our arms.

When you text him first.

There is a lot of pressure on guys to always initiate conversation. Sometimes he may not know if he’s being too pushy or texting too much – he might overthink it and not text you at all, which could…

Modern Scientists Validate Alan Turing’s Theory About Biology | Popular Science

Modern Scientists Validate Alan Turing’s Theory About Biology | Popular Science.

I wonder if this, the fact that Turing’s method of reasoning sought patterns of arrangement that in a sense makes computer science akin to biological science. There are design patterns at every level of creation whether created by nature, or human beings. Think about it, a computer is a crude facsimile of a brain. The neural network is one of the more successful models of artificial intelligence, computer virii are strangely similar to biological virii, as in self-replicating and mutating. Maybe it’s just semantics, maybe not, but Turing’s ideas are at the heart of computer science, in all it’s variations, as much as Babbage or Ada Lovelace.

My only point is that as computers become smaller and more powerful, their logic and structure will tend to more closely model biological systems, because we have to follow the patterns that we are familiar with, until there are far fewer differences between computing devices and biological systems. A kind of convergence of machine and organism. It’s not coincidence that “bionic” prostheses are already becoming commonplace, and mind-computer interfaces are the next -big-thing, research in both of these areas would be synergistic at some point. Plenty of fodder for sci-fi horror there.
