Looking to New Global Retrofits

i look at you, world
think how many want to hold & control you
"i need everyone to perform admirably"
Spock says when the shizgoin' dwn.
it's kind of like that now

2 appreciate each thing we offer in
Retrofitting our New Globalism
i have been looking to the past
for clues and guidance to the future

4warnings posted to p-rents gen,
reading future shock.
4 the past fiv min.
looking at d.weinberger.
and to the now & future
with asking the question
is this a new culture generation?

POWFOX answers that
Super is the option of positivity + intensity
Hyper accelerated + inertia
Future is forward
We Are Here
Civilization and Nature
is gotta a new relationship to each other
should i move to an eco-village?
does knowing how to build and fix bikes
make me prepared for the new eco-future?
will there still be bicycable roads in 2012?

will our future be cool and unique
or standard and boring?
Do we have what it takes
to make our future Rad?
Should I drop out of Art School
& join Sustainability Education
First Aid, Bio-medics? Alchemy?
Learn to make Water 101?
or should I give up
and build a spaceship?

everyone gets
viral for 15min

Feeling the Future

Sean Christensen w/ Linda Christensen (no mediate relation)

Today I read a post about
"Paleo-Future"
dated ideas of what people THOUGHT
the future would look like in the past.
For example, some dude in the 1950's
draws a picture of a car
he imagines peops'll drive in 1985.
Maybe its a rocket car.
But it's stupid
and you're all like
hahaha there were Dodge Duster Hatchbacks
and Sporty two seater Fieros in the 1980's
You're drawing of the future car looks
like billboards for drive in burgers
Yeah... so for those of us who see
that the future is right now,
let's stay on this page and wait for the chime
before we turn to the what's next
right!?
Oh Wait, here's the chime...
Amesome But True

Something to be said for
taking a breath before speaking

Maybe there can make an iphone ap

At speeds faster than ever
(Super Hyper Speed)
we can not always have
some room on our plate or

Married 2 Life

this doesnt matter
the Valentine's Day thing
because.. we should get taken out
and treated right year round

But... sometimes
it's a sweet and precious thing
to have a date with urself

Before you start crying over pitchers
to your best friend, or whoever will listen,
remember:
Its better to be Alone
Than with the Wrong person

Keep your head above water
No one here (on this blog) is gonna judge you
for being single, sexy and unavailable.
Being single means you get invited to stuff still,
huh, you remember that, partnered people?

Why not celebrate something strong instead?
RAWR!!!
That's right, today is officially
the start of a New Lunar Calendar
HAPPY YEAR OF THE TIGER

Here's to a Ferocious New Year!
don't let no monkeys pull your tail 2010
Let's Do This!

Olympic Wins

Games on
Canadia olympics are open
winter in Vancouver BC
vectorizing in on tribal values
srsly, combining all the
best features of West Coast Can
native roots, mythology, lore & j-pop...

Sumi, Quatchi and Miga
fuse the cultures of a diverse city &
are cute enough to collect and adore,
always plus to olympics committee
that enjoys collecting and running up bills
for hosting cities.
*historically cities lose money on olympics
this years events in BC were
largely protested by Vancouver's communities
they didnt want their city to lose money
to the corporate games in already depressed times
and tho the characters are kawaii mega-cute, 4 sure
to some, the use of indigenous aesthetics,
has been argued as an inappropriate
way to place profit in olympic committee pockets.

while it is up forever debates
those of us who do enjoy the artwork
and the honest fusion
that inspires and move us culturally forward
together

the original spirits of nature
and lore from Beijing's olympic
mascots are another
set of tribal, spirited folk creatures dancing
in the light of human solidarity in
connectedness to the earth
but again because of the politics,
from a questionable source.

But to those of you
(the artists)
who have designed these
to be so memorable and inspiring
thank you


The Fuwa, Beijiing 2008
