An Exciting Birthday Present For Me!

Filed under: PolenBabble — Twin A @ 12:54 pm

Hey everyone.

What I want for my birthday is a laser cutter. And you can all help me get one! Huzzah!

The FATlab, an organization I am a proud Virtual Fellow of, is in the running for a VersaLaser laser cutter. You can help us win by following these easy instructions:

1. Surf your internets to Instructables and click Vote — the project is Enter The Ghetto Matrix, by fi5e. It is a DIY Bullet Time system. It is pretty sweet.
2. If you have to sign up in order to vote, create an account. Creating an account is hella easy.

Sorry I don’t post here more often. I was all going to take a big picture of the reason I didn’t post for months, and then I had some forced relaxation, and then I got busy again. Now I’m doing more work with the Graffiti Research Lab and FATlab, and trying to be all productive and stuff.

Yup.

You have until the end of the month to propel our quest for laser glory into THE FUCKING STRATOSPHERE, so please get propellin’.
A

ps: nobody has any funny stories about me except C? awwwwwwwwwww. i no funny.

Wake Up and Dream

Filed under: PolenBabble — Twin C @ 11:13 am

Here’s an event that I will be attending, and A and B and Kissyfur will be performing at, or at least setting up blinkies for.  Lots of our other friends are also performing and/or involved. . .

EVOLVER:
Public Talk with Sharon Gannon, & Daniel Pinchbeck, Opening Body Prayer with David Life
Reality Sandwich and Jivamukti Yoga School presents…
Evolver:”Wake Up and Dream”

What happens when America’s most visionary city starts building a new world by living out its dreams?
Take an overnight journey into a realm of new possibilities with otherworldly music, performance, ideas, art and alchemy. Drift through a labyrinth of rooms full of enchanted activities, glowing and pulsing artwork, exotic performers, magical chill caves, futuristic playgrounds, and endless spontaneity.

Featuring the city’s finest lucid dreamers, including globe-spanning DJs and devotional dancers, hula hoopers and healers, performers and poets, musicians and meditation masters and that big bold playful dreamer — You!
Evolvitorium, 8:30p: “Asanas and Ayahuasca”
In this talk Sharon Gannon (cofounder of Jivamukti Yoga) and Reality Sandwich’s Daniel Pinchbeck (author of 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl) compare and contrast yoga and shamanism and how these ancient techniques might just save our world today.

Invited artists: Globesonic’s (Fabian Alsultany & Derek Beres) electrifying melting pot of Afro-beat, tabla, drum ‘n bass, global trance, dub, hip-hop, and house. Haj (Resident DJ of Sub Swara & Freek Factory) and his “low-end monkey business that’s more about journey than genre.” Hercules’ (Safetycan) Hobo Tech/Freshstep of deep electrofunk.

This is the first in a series of freakishly fun experiments from Reality Sandwich. Their goal is to spread ideas, connect people and reinvigorate life with creativity and spirit. As the seasons change, expect more invitations to participate in reality-changing events.

If we can build it here, we can build it anywhere. So, let’s get together, New York, and start dreaming.

The Waitress!!!

Filed under: PolenBabble — Twin C @ 4:15 pm

We’re off to AC in three hours.  I can’t wait!  I have to do some corporate compliance nonsense in the meantime.  ZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Twin D found the specs on a slot machine he turned me on to last time we were there:

He and Jax call it “The Waitress” even though that’s not what it’s called, but when the waitress comes, you’re usually pretty happy. . .

Big Mike and I went out to dinner a long time ago with some friends, I think to the Heartland Brewery, where we had the hostess with the mostest, followed directly by the waitress that we hate-ress.  I think she ignored us a lot.
