New friends, good food, and other random bits.
I’m headed to Hawaii for a little POW WOW (and by little I mean HUGE).
I’ll be living in a house with a bunch of artists in Hale’iwa, in the gorgeous North Shore. Essentially, I may not ever come back (I will be back in a week). I’ll be updating Booooooom with the usual stuff and posting updates from POW WOW. Last time I was there I jumped off this rock, but I promised my mom I wouldn’t do it this time. However, I did get travel insurance. (just joking mom) (but I do have the insurance)
PS – Follow the POW WOW BLOG.
The first-ever Booooooom film screening was a huge success! Thank you all for showing up and packing it out! Huge thanks to the gang at W2 for hosting the event for FREE! If you came out and enjoyed the film, please note that “An Island” runs on donations so if you feel inclined you can jump over here and support the project! Cheers!
This pretty much sums up the idiocy that is happening in Canada right now with regards to the future of our internet usage:
In my opinion the internet should be evolving into a more open and affordable environment, not a more expensive and inaccessible one. I can’t believe our Canadian government is allowing this to happen.
Canadian artists consider this:
“This also means that those who produce media-based art, and depend on the Internet to show the world their work, are less able to produce and disseminate their content freely. This means less innovation and more control of art, film, music, and other forms we may not yet know of!”
The only way to stop this is to rally together and email the leaders of our government, OpenMedia has made this really easy!
Already 250,000 people have spoken out against this. If you feel the same way I do, head over HERE. (it literally took me 2.5 seconds)
