Clemmy and I were hanging out one night at the Brooklyn Bowl talking about life, love, etc. I was telling her I remembered when I was younger hearing this story of the mythology of love. The way I heard it was originally the Gods created people in twos. They were put together as one in three different ways, two women, two men, and a man and a woman. They were so happy and fulfilled with each other they cared nothing for the Gods that had created them. This infuriated Zeus so much so, that he sent lightning bolts down separating them from one another.

Afterwords, the Gods sent hurricanes, floods and fierce winds to blow humans away from themselves. Aphrodite, seeing their sadness and loss, felt so sorry for them she connected their souls with the memory of the other. This search then outweighed all else. Zeus, displeased again, erased the memory of the other half of their soul, but he could not erase the longing. That longing is love.

We instinctively continue to search for the one who our love belongs to and most make mistakes along the way. The one thing is, our soul never does. It never will.

You know the story.

P.S. – After I told Clemmy this she asked me if I knew about that song by Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Origin of Love. Which I had not, so she sent me the link to this video above, which I think is super fresh and inspired this entry, so thanks Clemmy. :]

Kathleen Hanna

This is a re-write 3 days later.

Kathleen Hanna seems cool. I don’t know her, but I loved the last video in this post of her at Joe’s Pub. It pushed me to become mini obsessed with her over the last week. That might not seem like a long time for most people, but for an obsessive Aquarius like myself it is enough time to form a 100 page hypothesis on this observable phenomenon.

I edited this post 3 days later. Someone rated the post 1 star which means they thought it sucked ass. Which it did! This might not be any better, but they are my words. I don’t care about the one star per se, but if I am going to get it I want it to be for my words, not “facts” I found on this world wide web. That’s reduncqulous. :]

On with the show!

This video is from when Kathleen was with Bikini Kill.

She released a solo album under the name Julie Ruin in 1998.

She then went live as the lead singer for Le Tigre in the late 1990s.

This last video is about how Hanna’s drunken tagging of Kurt Cobain’s apartment inspired the name for Nirvana’s single, “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. It’s preformed at Our Hit Parade staring, Kathleen Hanna, Kenny Mellman, Carmine Covelli, Mike Jackson and Mr. Adam Horovitz. They also did Bikini Kill’s “Rebel Girl”. :]

12-15-2010 at Joe’s Pub in NYC.

It is pretty awesome. Kathleen Hanna is super fresh.

That’s right No One, and it may not be the last Alicia Keys this week…and what?

; ]

-Cara

What can I say Alicia is inspiring me this week and this time with a twist of Jay-Z.

New York is my home and I love her.

-Cara

Little Sunday night music break with Alicia Keys.

Day 60 - New Tattoo

New Tattoo

I am not going repeat what I already wrote here. A quick synopsis, starting August 1st, 2010 I will publish a picture I take that day everyday for a year (well to be exact I will do this everyday until July 31st, 2011). This is the 60th of those photographs. Also, there is a Flickr collection called “The Awesome Leftovers” where I put the daily shots (if any) that didn’t make the cut.

Naba’s new tat and some signs.

-Cara

Here’s what the person who did this video has to say…

This is a performance meant to entertain and inspire.

If you want to help…

As I said this is a performance. I don’t want there to be any doubts about my situation. I am a performer. I have a roof over my head and I have yet to start my own family. But this video isn’t about me. This is for the men, women and children on our streets who don’t have bright green puppets on their hands. The people who aren’t always as easy to see. This is for you.

Look around and see there are good people out there.

See.

-Cara

Write about love.

-Cara

Good morning love…

stretching…

I look and see it’s beautiful out.

-Cara

Un deseo sutil que temblando me viene a buscar.

-Cara

That’s right.

-Cara

Nice.

-Cara

Gotta go get ready for a vegan bbq. :]

Happy Saturday everybody!

-Cara

Life is better than good.

-Cara

Monday.

-Cara

Let’s get it started with some music…

Heads Will Roll by The Yeah, Yeah, Yeah’s.

:]

-Cara

Be attentive.

…and no the video is not my work. ;]

Happy Friday.

-Cara

Nneka is what’s up.

Miss CHeMAR

For more info on Miss CHéMAR follow this link.

I don’t care what you say about it, I was just in the zone with this video. I like post modern, something like, me watching people watching me watch me be me to music while people watch me...

I said it.

-Cara


It’s Saturday, so I figured we’d keep it light.

Michel Lauzière rollerblading along a street lined with strategically placed and filled bottles. Performance was of “The Toreador Song ” from “Carmen” using 300 glass bottles on Late Show with David Letterman.

Enjoy…

:]

Eco Fish

Eco Fish

I was surfing the world wide web for a cool eco flash game to blog about since it has been forever. It always surprises me that there is not too many out there. I found this one entitled “Eco Fish” which I think the point of this game really is to figure out why they call it “Eco Fish”. The second mystery is why the game song is, “Deck the Halls”.  It is addictive though. :]

Good luck.

jeffe-me

That’s right a year ago, on January 10th, 2008, “The Day After An Inconvenient Truth” was formed. When I first started this blog it was to have a voice in the world that differs from mainstream television, radio, satellite, newspapers, etc.  I was inspired by the movie, “An Inconvenient Truth“, drawn into the meaning of an “inconvenient truth”, the fact that you might not want to hear what the problem is and what can be done to solve said problem, but here is the truth and now that you know, what are you going to do about it?

In the beginning, what I primarily wrote about was eco, environmental “inconvenient truths”, following in the footsteps of the film, but as time went by I began to find “inconvenient truths” in other areas as well, be it the issue of gay rights, human rights, animal rights, freedom of speech, freedom of art, whatever is going on in the world that mass media does not cover or covers up, these were the pieces I exceptionally enjoy writing about. Then there are the “recycle stuff” ones, just there for some information of what extra steps you can take to make a better world, the D.I.Y. projects using recycled materials, or just how to make something green and cool for your everyday life.  Throw in a few organic recipes, cool green events, green product reviews, games, petitions, stories of amazing people who inspire me, beautiful photos, and sometimes just a funny video to relax and you have, “The Day After An Inconvenient Truth“.  :]

What I am getting at with all this is to say, “The Day After An Inconvenient Truth” has evolved from when I began to where it is at now. I went from doing blog entries everyday from January, 10th, 2008 to October 13th, 2008, right around when I got an official 9-5 job, to now where I may not blog everyday, but no more than a few days go by without me throwing one out there. I needed to find a balance in my life and for now this works for me. I’d rather have good ones than just have ones. :]

I really like writing this blog, even when I can’t think of what to write about, or when I’d rather be playing PlayStation with Ms. Marine or web 2.0 out on the million social networks. This blog makes me more accountable.  It is something I started and am still doing a year later (see Tony). Listen, for someone with absolutely no attention span to anything (besides computers and all things tech), I am pretty amazed that “TDAAIT” is still going. What is crazier is when I started this blog I was surprised if I got 10 hits a day, to now where I get on average over 300 unique hits a day from all over the world. Though businesses like MSNBC and other corporations that I do not have any respect for, ask me to place their advertisements on my site, I refuse. I was not working a real job when I started this blog and could have used easy money like that. Instead, I was insulted that they would even ask me, so much so I responded that they obviously had not looked at my blog, because if so they would never have asked me! In retrospect, I am sure they would have asked me anyway. In their minds people are just a herd of non-thinking cows who when they see a blinking ad, inevitably they must click on it. That goes against what I am trying to achieve here. I really hate ads everywhere. I am blessed in  many other ways through this blog, so it doesn’t need to monetarily support me as well.

What else have I gotten from writing, “The Day After An Inconvenient Truth”? I have learned about a lot of bad stuff that goes on, and I have learned about good people, things and ideas, living and growing here on this Earth (I liked it when Alice Walker called humans “Earthlings” in this interview.). I maintain hope and an awesome faith that things will only get better if you do good.

Something I keep in the forefront of my mind is, what each of us does affects the other. It is not just the huge things necessarily, even our smallest thoughts affect the world. Also, we can as one person change things; who you touch in turns will touch others. You may not get the gratification of seeing the change you bring to the world directly, but if you do it, you may see the world itself change. I search for happiness and peace, by going inconveniently through its sorrows, untruths, truths, and ugliness. I also keep the faith. Faith is the most important thing, without it you are lost. I guess that is what, “The Day After An Inconvenient Truth” is to me, a way to not lose hope and to maintain my faith during the era that is the beginning of the end.

This year I have learned that humanity is not as bad and hopeless as it seems, so that’s cool.

Pop! Goes My Heart.

Love it.

Merry Christmas to everyone and it’s true, war is over if you want it.

Much love to all who couldn’t be home this year.

All About Me

I start many things with good intentions, many, many things. This time I intend to stay focused. This time I will not leave behind what I started. This time it is larger and more important than my obsession with Martha Stewart, all design shows, and Teresa Witherspoon. :P This time it is about the greater good...this time I am serious.

Wanna cool, original, organic cotton, handmade, super fresh t-shirt? Yes you do...
