Re: Re: Re: fuck Bush


The people who voted for bUSH are not the enemy. They are my family.
And bUSH is but an obstacle to a more liberal political future.

I don't mean to sound trite. I'm trying to keep things in perspective.

Re: Re: Re: fuck Bush


OK Bob ... you're freaking me out. I was bypassing most of the doom
sayers until I got to yours. Your words do sting with bitter truth but
I still believe the world did not change on 2/11 (nor 9/11 for that
matter). Humans have been dealing with the same issues for a thousand
years. The struggle for peace, stability, economic prosperity are
universal. And there is is still immense opportunity in this country.

Americans (Republicans included), like all humans, are on the path to
enlightenment. It just takes some a little longer to get there.

I speak as a Buddhist and as the only Democrat in my family. I know who
voted for Bush. My entire family voted him. And they are good people.

To demonize the enemy is to become the enemy.

Media trips


hey all-

if you know of any media art that samples popculture (media mashing)
(media remixing) please let me know and I will blog it. Media trips has
been getting some pretty good traffic ever since Larry Lessig blogged it.

also, a few rhizomers are already helping out ... a big thank you!!! to
Joy Garnett ... Mark Cooley and Ryan Griffis for all your help.

failure leads to ... a new blog for media-mashers


I have made a few attempts to promote media-mashing to a more mainstream
audience. The San Francisco Mediatrip Competition was a bust. It
received some interest and plenty of kind words but it was a bust
nonetheless.

I love the media-mashing "genre" and, as a FAIR USE activist, it's my
personal mission to promote it as much as possible. The final "product"
does not always impress but the act of mashing always impresses me.

Personally, I felt empowered the first time I ripped and remixed
something from television.

I understand that reading and writing is "fundamental" ... but in a
culture absolutely dominated by multimedia communication, are you really
literate if you cannot express yourself the same way? Are you part of
the conversation? Is your voice reaching anyone?

My new blog is called "Media trips" and it promotes artists and
producers who sample (remix) popcultre. Here is the url:
http://www.mediatrips.com

Finally, if you would like me to promote your favorite media-masher then
email me. My blog may be new but mediatrips.com has been around awhile
and gets decent traffic. Hope to hear from you.
