I still strive for transparency so I guess this video might as well go here so if anyone has a question well... I had cultivated a massive fist sized malignant tumor in my sinuses so rare that it can't be treated any known way so they had to remove it. They removed an entire bone from my leg in the 12 hour surgery along with muscle, skin, and fat to rebuild my head. We've had plenty of good jokes waiting for the fourth and final surgery a couple years later. That's all I can say now except thanks to my wonderful friends who've stayed by my side or not throughout this, the most difficult time of my life. After so much pain and suffering I've come to an awareness greater than anything I previously understood that allows me to be in total happiness the likes of which I cannot describe. It seems I am more resolutely atheist than ever before yet more spiritual than I had ever been. I want to do the performance which I have recently done at Proper Eats again. I could maybe do it anywhere so where? Legong? Backspace? Goodnight. CAL
This video was originally intended for inclusion with this post but for some odd coding reason didn't get in till today if you can't see it try refresh. 10/something/11.
New Art show hopefully coming soon. The artist is talking about bringing in sepia tones of this wonderful body of work. Here is the first page out of about a zillion online taken w/o permission from: http://spacetrawler.com/2010/01/01/spacetrawler-4/ I really hope this works out these are just incredible.
More info likely to come.
We are so happy over here at HVB to announce we have established the supply of our very favorite Conveyor Belt Scraps! Its a damn miracle. (Now just let me get this out of the way real quick like. I was about to exclaim in big from wormseye perspective and what wot... "yahoo!" But no I fucking can-not thanks to the assholes over at you know who idiots went and erased a word from our cultural lexicon. OK tirade over but damn that ain't too cool)
Sorry about that I'm very thrilled cause this means we can open it up- consistent supply means we can now have a catalogue to put on your davenport! We have to pay for the supply now but we made a deal after three years of negotiations. We still get the garbage before it hits the dump but now they will cut some of it and we get a wider selection thanks to our legitimacy. The company we get the scraps from just bought another much smaller company and they are going to donate some of the bits and pieces that are redundant to us! Kinda scary getting this close to a big corporation feels like I'm looking out a lower deck porthole of a huge pirate ship. Shh....
We now have Electric Guitars as well. Please if you know how to use one come plug in and fire it up! I got all the proper bits and pieces to Jack them into our local HELD Vegan Sound System we love fun time jammy-jam! Bangeth Thy Head
We still need consistent intern/volunteer positions filled so if you have some days or a certain day you can donate it would be great. All proceeds from HVB go directly back into AR local and national. I'm not done shaking off the cancer there's more surgery fun to come after recovering from this one. I'll draw up a schedule on the whiteboard we can finally use that more than a little bit.
Again we need to get the catalog together to start getting some real outreach going cause man we have to get this out there. Two reasons primarily:
A) replace the "need" for and extinguish use of bad materials like leather and fake leather that cracks and splits.
B) Show people they can live the vegan lifestyle without giving up this basic component so psychologically important.
Those who can't donate regularly just come in when you can and get busy, crank up the tunes grab an exactly some sticky-vinyl by the back door sit at the white table and get crackin'. Or you know ask someone what to dü.
