Has anyone heard from Tree?

I was just wondering if Tree is still in India. Has anyone heard from her since she left?  I hope she returns with lots of cool footage. I think she is there learning a new quilting technique.  I can't wait to hear all about it.

Press Pause Play

Check this out!  It's a recently-produced documentary about how art (music, film, etc.) is much more accessible thanks to the DIY (do it yourself) movement of the last decade.  I see many of you as part of that revolution.

The 5x5 Challenge

I'm stealing another challenge idea from Vimeo.  And I quote:

"A 5x5 is a classic Vimeo video project. It's a 25-second video composed of five 5-second clips, using only natural sound. 

The challenge here is to find beauty in the mundane. Your day-to-day might seem boring to you, but I can assure you there is beauty in it — in your breakfast routine, commute to work, 8am biology class, lunch hour, trip to…

All We Can Do Is Try start THIS one off without some things

and take some "other" things into the Future with us.

Maybe this can serve as a tablet upon which we carve what we plan to leave behind and what we find worthy of taking into 2012. ( I'm not keeping score).

A daunting task; to compile such a list, but if…
