The Tragically Hip - Poets





#murdochburnett



How this song holds up and seems more profound twenty years later. I gotta share a couple of songs thinking about my ol pal Murdoch who died a year ago today.



Don't tell me what the poets are doing, right Murd?

Paper From Southwest Conference For Popular Culture, New Mexico

I've been adding stuff to my Patreon page.

People do ask me from time to time...what the heck am I writing about and what am I working on....so to visit this site PATREON. which is designed to help artists and writers have rapport and support with patrons and audience is a great idea. I just haven't done anything to promote it.

Anyways, here is the paper I presented last February....and I have been writing more on the same topics. I am also going to add citations on a separate part of the "creator pages" . I also have some short Buddhist film reviews there.

I seem to have forgotten how to link here in my posts...thats how out of it I am argh!!

LOOKING FOR LANDLORDS

Blog, For Goodness Sake!

Yep, still trying to organize my writing and morning practices and put regular blog posts together. This has been a very intense busy past six months. I am making "mind maps" for what I want to do in the next six-12 months....and what I want to write about. I am working on a proposal for a conference paper. May be something to to do with art forgery. Not entirely sure as that is another mind map I'm compiling.

In the meantime I am adding two new blogs I want to follow as I feel they will inspire me t blog myself.

Here is a write who is writing about Food and Movies...a topic I adore and am so excited to get to see what she says...how in depth or if it's notes about food...?

Freedom Square

 A Tent City has been created over two weeks ago by some neighbors, some activists and some homeless people. The protest is next to a Police Station on S. Homan Ave where people have claimed torture and some people being "disappeared". The rumors and allegations have been circulating the city for over 20 years says Stagg.
 We took over some supplies. It's not unusual for me to have a cooler in my car and collect donations and distribute them or be ready to pick up donations. In Freedom Square they serve food between 6-8 p.m. for about 20 people. Friends of the protesters and the public donate food and supplies.
 I picked up some healthy options of cereal and fruit for breakfast the other day.
 They have several engagement or services in tents including a library, a first aid station and an outdoor kitchen.
