Can you say Koyaanisqatsi: Life out of Balance.

In the Hopi language, the word Koyaanisqatsi means “crazy life, life in turmoil, life out of balance, life disintegrating, a state of life that calls for another way of living”.

Will people wake up?

    Speaking of bikes, I came across this nice article regarding up and coming bike cafes across the country and it’s about time!!! http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/41953889/ns/travel-active_travel/

    This past weekend, I enjoyed a 20 mile urban bike ride stopping at an independent coffee shop & planning on doing another bike ride this weekend as well.

    The first time I saw Koyaanisqatsi almost 30(!) years ago, I was blown away with the cinematography and music. I became very interested in Philip Glass. I received an email today from Patagonia, and he has contributed a piece for the company’s Benefit Tracks project http://www.patagonia.com/us/media/music

    Luz: that’s great! Reminds me of this, from three years ago:

    Steve: I vividly remember one scene – and I haven’t watched the movie since I saw it in a theater in Boston in the Eighties – where the camera races along a dirtroad, music pulsing quickly… until it hits the edge of a cliff and we realize that it was not a car, but a plane… and the music stops at the exact moment that the plane hits the edge and flies, and a huge reverb makes the last sound from the music hang in the air, just like the camera on the plane is now hanging… fantastic!
