It has been a while. Yes I know, it has been tough without me hasn’t it?

I have recently been coming back to this and other earlier projects, and I am glad I have. I am excited to report that during my time away I have apparently accumulated a number of new followers, as well as a few people that signed-up on my Collective!

I took some time this morning to send out an email blast with an update on recent happenings. If you have not already signed-up to it, you may want to do so. More intimate details not shared here will be shared with those that support me the most through that list.

A part of that update is the fact that I have manifested new technology. That is right, I now have a very functional laptop (with Windows 8…), as well as a Smartphone (and no monthly payments thanks to a HUGE supporter!). I have been working on downloading apps, but it does not appear that will be a reality. However I have a very nice windows phone I am bartering for (see post soon), and intend on getting an even better phone soon that I will be able to download apps on.

With that I have a…

QUESTION FOR YOU!

As an avid reader of this blog, I am guessing you have listened to my audio posts, as well as read my writings. Now that I have a smartphone (with camcorder capabilities) I am thinking about doing video updates and posting them here.

What do you think? Would you enjoy video updates, or do you feel engaged enough with the audio posts?

It will take a decent amount more work on my end to produce videos worth sharing (post-production is harder then most people believe), but I may be willing to put that extra work in should others desire it. The audio post-by-voice are by far the easiest way of keeping you all updated and engaged, but if you feel I should take it a step further I may do so.

Yes, I have been busy lately. As some of you have heard I am starting another business. With some help from others of course.

A number of my talented and passionate friends and colleagues are the inspiration for this project. After years of event coordination, graphic/web design, and guerrilla marketing for small businesses and non-profits I am moving onto promoting individuals instead of corporate entities.

The business name is Primal Talent Enterprises, and it will serve as a talent agency for those passionate about the dark and eclectic arts. We will represent professional talent in a wide range of categories, and be the source for ethical talent agency contracts. Furthermore the goal is to significantly change the state of the “alt industry”, and get those that walk to a different beat paid well.

One of the major ways I will be doing this is by creating what is known as an “Interdependent Alliance” of subcontractors. This is when a group of professionals in any given field work cooperatively (instead of competitively) toward a single uniting goal. Pooling resources, expertise, and services for a mutually agreeable scenario for all involved.

Once again this is one of many crucial steps I am taking to walk my talk as they say. Using cooperation over competition we truly could be living in a more fare and equitable world. This is just a small and simple example of how.If you wish to be involved with this project, click the following link.

If you have ever been looking for a “step-by-step” guide to creating or participating in a Peaceful Revolution you have found it. Check out my newest page entitled Peaceful Primer with Actionable Steps. This was a document I drafted a while ago, and have finally been able to polish and add to this site. It is jam-packed full of inspiring movements, organizations, and alternative modes of sustainable civilization. There are also a number of links to extremely helpful websites and momentum building tools ideal for activists. It very well could become a valuable tool for you and those you know.

Thank you once again, and don’t be shy! Comment, Like, Share!

Peaceful Primer with Actionable Steps

Please research any of the following terms you are unfamiliar with. Most notably those indicated within quotes.

A number of people around the world at present have either come to the individual realization, or are hearing echoes throughout the public sound-scape that systematic or revolutionary change is needed.

Clearly most all of us do not want a violent revolution. However if we are not able to act quickly towards peaceful solutions, more extreme measures may be the only option afforded to us by the powers that be…

I assert a peaceful non-violent “Evolution” as I like to call it is possible! These are step-by-step actionable ideas powered by SociAutopsy, which have a large potential to work for our collective aims while remaining within the public’s view of ethical.

The information and techniques presented below are based on years of personal experience with grassroots organizing, extensive work with non-profit NGO’s, PAC’s, social entrepreneurship, and even covert direct action.
