About Me

My photo
I have recovered from the disease of Alcoholism. I believe there is only one person really,.. everybody. And that peace of mind is everything. -So treat your neighbor as you would treat yourself, because your neighbor IS yourself. I think most of recovery is what I would call common sense, but that learning to be ordinary is a true gift very few people acquire. My ambition is to accept everything unflinchingly, with compassion, and therefore be intrinsically comfortable in my own skin, no matter what. I am comfortable being uncomfortable and am willing to go to any lengths to improve my life. I believe the Big Book was divinely inspired, and is extraordinarily powerful. Unfortunately AA's best kept secret a lot of the time. (In my opinion). I just try to do what works, no matter what it is.

This is a video of U2 performance of the fly on the Zoo TV tour.
Kathys post onYes We Can - Barack Obama Music Video which I LOVED watching, (even though I am NO authority on American politics, except for having the same level of fondness for George Bush as David Icke ) but anyway. I digress. its a great video, but it reminded me of my favorite bit of the Zoo TV U2 tour performances, which was the HUGE !!!! Ultra high definition TV's flashing the words IT'S YOUR WORLD YOU CAN CHANGE IT over and over REALLY !!!! Fast at the end of the song the fly. Here's a utube vid of it. I LOVE multimedia installations, and use of cool words. I think the video stage backdrop had a lot to do with Brian Eno whose mind I LOVE. I LOVE the way he thinks creatively. Whatever. Anyway the TV installations were HUGE and breathtaking. Really well done. This tiny utube pic does not do it justice. The effect of those words being flashed MASSIVELY in the background was very effective. Very believable. I love 'propaganda' and suggestion when it is used in a positive empowering way. It works! Anyway. Just thought I would share that with you. There were a couple of very powerful messages I took from that concert. A couple of slogans that have stayed with me since I first saw them in that incredibly powerful context of a beautifully engineered video installation. Good work Mr Eno! I really ought to read more of his stuff, as I find his thinking very inspiring. ( I think I want to purchase his little book of cards called Oblique strategies.) Whatever. There are so many great creative minds out there. Hard working souls! Right I'd better be off. Have yourselves a great Monday!.

I wish that more people would want to change the world in a positive way. Hopefully, the message will get to the youngest of minds before it's too late.

Yeh we get the chance to make a difference these days, who knows, one day it may be a global difference? How amazing would that be.

Recovery Love and Happy Sunday :)

Sounds like a good concert! Bono rocks! Have you ever seen Blue Man Group? They change the theme of their show alot but its all about propaganda in their case as it relates to Art. But I do believe that postitive propaganda can get a message across. Yes we can!
