EARTHSHIP

These homes are 100% sustainable AND they’re cheap to build.
They have their own greenhouses and grow crops year-round no matter the climate. 
The entire roof of the Earthship funnels rain water to a cistern, which then pumps it to sinks and sowers. Then the used water (grey water) is pumped to the plants. After being cleaned by the plants, the water is pumped into the bathrooms for the toilets which makes it ‘black water’ which is pumped to outside gardens for non-edible plants.
The constant temperature in the home is 70°. The large greenhouse windows always face south to heat up the thermal mass throughout the day.
Solar panels on the roof and optional wind turbines provide the Earthship with all the power it needs.
NO BILLS.
They are easy to build. One couple in Canada built a 3-story Earthship by themselves in 3 months. They didn’t hire help nor use expensive equipment.
The most basic Earthship is $7,000.
IT’S MADE OF RECYCLED MATERIAL. 

I know what I’m going to be living in.

“Acquainted with the Light : Excursions through the World Within” is a body of work encapsulating the life events of the author that occurred between Febuary - July of 2013.

just like the events that inspired this release, “AWL” was abruptly cut short. what was meant to be a full-track was abandoned half way leaving us with merely a 5-track audio narrative of a journey towards the light featuring selected remixes from a dope roster of producers.

sadness itself can be a great teacher but what I’ve come to realize yet again is that love is infinite and love is selfless. it takes many shapes, forms and sizes. but it exists everywhere and anywhere.

“..instead of trying to visualize the light in front of your eyes, try to bring this light right into the sacred chamber of your own heart, imagine now that your heart is the source of light. . begin to feel that the rays of light coming out from your heart send light to all directions, dispersing darkness. because only light can conquer darkness. the moment you bring light into a room whether it has been dark for a week or a month or a year the moment you bring light in, you would not know how long the room was in darkness. it instantly is lit. the same it is with the light of your own heart. every human being is a carrier of light and the heart of every human being has light in it. . keep on opening and closing your eyes. . keep on with the deep breathing. . till you capture the vision of the light…keep it as long as you can. . “

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. … No artist is pleased. [There is] no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.
— Martha Graham

Random fact of the day

ifimamermaid:

fluffmugger:

“Blood is thicker than water”, when used in the context of family over friends, is in fact a wildly incorrect bastardisation.

The true, full quote is The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb,” and refers to relationships forged by choice holding deeper meaning than those of mere biology.

GENERATIVE ART WORKSHOP
WHEN: July 5-13 (M-F 6pm onwards, WEEKENDS 1.30pm onwards)
WHERE: TERMINAL GARDEN, 566 Shaw Blvd. Mandaluyong City
This 9 day workshop will introduce coding to artists who want to incorporate programming into their work, starting with basic elements of the Processing language and moving into topics including 3d modeling, using peripheral devices like the Kinect and Arduino, data visualization, computer vision/sensors &amp; interactivity, and generative art inspired from nature, statistics, biology, and computer science. 
We will also work on projection mapping techniques, and filmmakers and visual artists are invited to bring content and a concept, and we will help set up the tech for installing it.
The programming will be done in Processing but the concepts are applicable to other languages and tools.
On the last day, we shall have an opportunity to showcase what we’ve learned on the 13th JUL by providing visuals and projection mapping during an electronic music concert at B-SIDE! [more info TBA]
This course is part of 2013 BEDROOMLAB workshop series.
Requirements:
Requirements: Bring a computer with processing installed — you can download a free copy from http://www.processing.org. 
(Prior programming experience not required!)
Fee: 1,500 PHP (for the whole week!) 
15 Slots available.
Register: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1EtRDUElFdAFDcffBWBDESrWj5Jg3cMKTFMizb8JxCUA/viewform
Book Now: Tengal - 09206045559, tengald@gmail.com
About the workshop lecturer: 
Gene is a media artist, music technologist, and researcher specializing in the intersection of generative systems and data mining. He writes free software for performing arts and researches emerging technologies. He currently works at Sourcetone.com developing software which delivers music according to its emotional content. Web =&gt; genekogan.com, twitter.com/genekogan, github.com/genekogan
FAQ: 
I don’t know how to program, is it necessary for this workshop? 
-No! We shall be focusing on concepts and streamlining the workshop lessons to each partipant’s skill and interest. 
Say you’re a filmmaker, a theater art director, or a motion graphics artist and want to learn how to do video mapping or use computer tracking technology using Kinect. You don’t need to learn your programming basics 101, just come on over and we’ll help you set-up your project. We anticipate that the workshop participants vary, some would be more skilled in programming, others won’t. Don’t worry, we’ll guide you to let you get the most out of this workshop. Having some programming background is useful, but not necessary for this workshop.
Are you sure it’s only 1,500 PHP? 
-Yes! We’re not in it for the money, we want to cultivate a community of first-time creative coders and artists. FACT: this is the only 8-day workshop on generative art (or Processing language) offered in the Philippines and only for 1,500 PHP!
Will there be assignments during the workshop? 
- Most of the assignments we’ll give you would probably just links to videos and reading material. We want to focus on getting our hands dirty during the workshop session itself! 
What if I miss one day of the workshop? 
- The reason why we are trying to limit the workshop participants to a maximum of 15 people is because we want our lessons to be tailored specifically to each participant. Say, you miss one day, no need to worry, we’ll catch up with what was the lesson you previously attended. Of course you will make the most out of the workshop if you participate on all 8 days. 
I want to learn how to use kinect and arduino for interactive projects but I don’t own one, should I buy?
- Buying is entirely up to you, but completely unnecessary. We have 2 arduinos, a kinect, and a bunch of other sensors that we can use during the workshop. 
Is there a dress code for the workshop? Is this like going to school? 
- Nonsense! The workshop is a rare workshop that is combines both informal and intensive! Come as you are, no need to be proper, just be yourself. We envision the workshop environment to be informal, fun, and easy. We don’t serve refreshments, but there is a bar just outside the venue. If you prefer to bring your own. BYOB to share!

So Who/What is the BuwanBuwan Collective?

Buwan-Buwan is a traditional Filipino game that enacts the lunar eclipse. Players draw a circle on the ground representing the moon, and must stay inside this circle. Meanwhile, one player acts as the Bakunawa, the mythical giant sea serpent who would eat the moon: he may not enter the circle, but must touch another player who is inside it in order to switch places.

Buwan-Buwan has been all but forgotten by a generation of young, Filipino urbanites weaned on gadgets and mass media, but BuwanBuwan, a Pinoy beatmakers and electronic musicians collective, appropriate the concept of a game they in fact never played as children, transforming it into a framework for their perpetual creative exchanges, a take-off point for defining their indentity as Filipino artists, and above all, a common ground where they can all play.

"The video for Similar Objects’ IDM stomper “PASTMAYANFUTUREPRINCESS” contains some of the weirdest, most imaginative short filmmaking wonders this side of exotic tropicalia. Its narco-futurist, black-and-white affair blends intricately with the visual themes of the track—the mystical surrealism of natural and cosmic energies, the paranormal incursions to astral prophecies and Mayan occultism, and some images lifted from an ’80s sci-fi videogame featuring a modern princess with special powers being chased by a mysterious man wearing the face of a teddy bear.
