I am the featured filmmaker of the week on this cool new website based in Portland created by Wieden + Kennedy.
My friend Aaron Rose is curating all original content for the site and it looks like it's going to be really amazing... keep an eye out for a new show called "Califunya!" created by the lovely and magical Becky Stark.
This Friday November, 20th at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, CA Daisies (1966) A satirical, wild, irreverent story of teenage rebellion, Vera Chytilova's 'Daisies' is one of the Czech New Wave's standount moments. The women's anarchic antics are mirrored by the film's wildly free-associative montages, psychedelic color and effects and an overriding impression of gleeful anarchy. Few so-called art movies are this much fun.
With short films and videos by- Maximilla Lukacs and Sarah Sophie Flicker ( The Belles of the Black Diamond Field), Jess Holzworth, Nicole McDonald, Melissa auf der Maur and Ashley Conner.
*Please note the discounted rate and code! Call the hotel rather than book through expedia, etc.

From todays Magic Lecture I learned the following...
The weather inside is like the weather outside...
There is weather inside of our brains and bodies and the way to make it rain is to undestand how the universe operates and therefore become sympathetic to it. Becoming one with our Earth and our Universe is the way to gain shamanic power. Meaning that accepting that you and a storm are one and being able to be entagled and sympathetic with that storm allows you control over it because there is no separartion between you and it. Clearly this is the goal of mankind. Why do we see ourselves as being separate from everything when everything is so connected?
But Stevie already knew all this... she's always been a storm...
