Motherload


Searching for freedom and connection in a gas-powered, digital and divided world.

Motherload is a crowdsourced documentary about a new mother’s quest to understand the increasing isolation and disconnection of the digital age, its planetary impact, and how cargo bikes could be an antidote.

Filmmaker Liz Canning cycled everywhere until she had twins in 2008. Hauling babies via car was not only unsustainable but took the freedom and adventure out of life, and Liz felt trapped. She Googled “family bike” and uncovered a global movement of people replacing cars with cargo bikes: long-frame bicycles designed for carrying passengers and heavy loads. Liz set out to learn more, and Motherload was born.

In the joy and dedication of the cargo bike community Liz saw that the choice to live by bike, instead of by car, has powerful positive repercussions. These people make sustainability looking really fun! Motherload asks why this is so and what it can teach us about mainstream culture.

Through her research Liz learns how the bicycle transformed society faster and more effectively than any other invention, facilitating women’s fight for the vote and giving the poor mobility for the first time in history. In 1896 Maria Ward wrote in Bicycling for Ladies:
“Riding the wheel, our own powers are revealed to us, a new sense is seemingly created… You have conquered a new world, and exultingly, you take possession of it.”
This all makes sense when Liz finds that humans are genetically hardwired to crave outdoor sensory experiences like riding a bicycle.

We feel this most urgently today, as our hunter-gatherer instincts are drowned out by the clamor of the digital age, and Americans spend 95% of our time indoors.

A ce sujet, découverte récente : End:Civ




End:Civ est un #film #documentaire réalisé par Franklin Lopez, qui examine le caractère #destructeur et #autodestructeur de la #civilisation #industrielle, sur le plan #écologique, ainsi que son caractère hautement #coercitif, sur le plan #social. Basé en partie sur Endgame, un best-seller écrit par Derrick Jensen, End:Civ demande : « Si ton pays se faisait envahir par des extraterrestres qui coupaient les forêts, qui empoisonnaient l’eau et l’air et contaminaient les réserves de nourriture, résisterais-tu ? »

Toutes les civilisations ont dévasté l’environnement dont elles dépendaient, et se sont ainsi autodétruites. Tandis que nous écrivons ces mots, la civilisation industrielle mondialisée reproduit ce même processus en détruisant de manière systématique le monde naturel. Cela devrait être une évidence. De la (mal nommée) sixième extinction de masse des espèces (nous devrions parler d’une première destruction de masse, parler d’extinction suggère une absence de responsabilité, une sorte de fatalité naturelle) au réchauffement climatique, en passant par les nombreuses pollutions de tous les milieux (par le plastique, des métaux lourds, et d’innombrables autres formes de contamination), le constat est flagrant.

Cependant, des actes de courage, de compassion et d’altruisme abondent, même dans les endroits les plus affectés. En documentant d’une part, la résistance de ceux et celles qui sont le plus touchés par la guerre et la répression, et d’autre part, l’héroïsme de ceux et celles qui vont de l’avant pour confronter la crise la tête haute, End:Civ présente une piste pour sortir de cette folie dévorante et aller vers un avenir plus sain.

End:Civ présente des entrevues avec Paul Watson, Waziyatawin, Gord Hill, Michael Becker, Peter Gelderloos, Lierre Keith, James Howard Kunstler, Stephanie McMillan, Qwatsinas, Rod Coronado, et John Zerzan, entre autres.

Il s'agit ici de la version originale sous-titrée en français.

Recorder: The Marion Stokes Project


Marion Stokes was secretly recording television twenty-four hours a day for thirty years. It started in 1979 with the Iranian Hostage Crisis at the dawn of the twenty-four hour news cycle. It ended on December 14, 2012 while the Sandy Hook massacre played on television as Marion passed away. In between, Marion recorded on 70,000 VHS tapes, capturing revolutions, lies, wars, triumphs, catastrophes, bloopers, talk shows, and commercials that tell us who we were, and show how television shaped the world of today.

Before “fake news” Marion was fighting to protect the truth by archiving everything that was said and shown on television. The public didn’t know it, but the networks were disposing their archives for decades into the trashcan of history. Remarkably Marion saved it, and now the Internet Archive will digitize her tapes and we’ll be able to search them online for free.

This is a mystery in the form of a time capsule. It’s about a radical Communist activist, who became a fabulously wealthy recluse archivist. Her work was crazy but it was also genius, and she would pay a profound price for dedicating her life to this visionary and maddening project.

Traumschläger Straßenfest 2019 – So war’s!


Wow! So schnell ist es dann wieder vorbei, das Fest, auf das wir Monate hingearbeitet hatten…

Im Vergleich zur Premiere hatten wir einiges dazugelernt, hinter den Kulissen klemmte es noch da und dort, aber das hat zum Glück niemand bemerkt ;).

Das Wetter meinte es allerdings nicht gut mit uns. Bei Facebook wurde gar gefragt, ob das Fest überhaupt stattfindet. Aber dazu ist ein Straßenfest zu groß, es sind zu viele Dinge fix vorbestellt, als dass wir auf einen besseren Termin hätten hoffen können. Die einen waren fatalistisch, die anderen versuchten unverrückbar optimistisch, besseres Wetter herbeizureden – aber zu ändern war eh nichts, das Fest war geplant und musste stattfinden.

Die Stände machten wetterfester als letztes Jahr auch einen noch professionelleren Eindruck, es sah richtig gut aus. Die Kunstmeile mit der Traumschläger Kinobox, den Ständen von Lichtblau Siebdruck, Tom Hoenig, Karrikaturen „to go“ von Shine, Frau Fenster und dem HipHop-Workshop, daneben Speis und Trank von ZappiZappi, PostVinum, Thai-Küche von Phatt Cook, TikiTiki, dem Schwarz Coffee Shop und natürlich dem Traumschläger Kollektiv selbst, das sowohl einen Stand mit Info und Tombola betrieb als auch das Basisangebot an kalten Getränken und Kuchen bereitstellte.

Dazu natürlich die Bühne für das Musikprogramm von Speerträger, Yohazid, leider dem vorletzten Konzert ever von Toy of the Ape und den Blutjungs!

Dahinter ging unser Fest eigentlich noch mit dem Flohmarkt weiter, aber zum Teil fiel der dem Wetter zum Opfer, und zum Teil schien das Gelände schon vorher zu Ende, das werden wir nächstes Mal (Jahr!) besser machen.

Wie einiges andere auch, was wir von diesem Fest gelernt haben. Bei wem es gehakt hat, wem wir nicht richtig gerecht werden konnten, oder wem wir unabsichtlich Probleme gemacht haben, den bitten wir ganz herzlich um Entschuldigung und geloben Besserung!

Aber genug geschrieben, schaut Euch die Bilder auf der Homepage an, die beschreiben das Fest viel besser als tausend Worte :)

Danke an die teilnehmenden Künstler, danke an alle, die da waren und mit uns gefeiert haben, und danke an unsere Helfer, die das Fest überhaupt erst möglich gemacht haben!

Insbesondere danken wir außerdem unseren Unterstützern:

Kulturamt Frankfurt am Main

For The New G-Plus Refugees Coming To Pluspora Let’s Do The Aspects Again :


Folks who are not on Pluspora, feel free to skip this post, this is really just intended for the refugees on our Pod and not meant to klutter up your reading. Folks who are already being shared with by me are in my Aspects don't need to read this again for the most part (if you haven't seen it but I am sharing with you then please do skim along).

This is probably going to be the last public post of the Aspects. I will do an abbreviated one in the future only for folks in my Aspects already but I will be reducing my public posting due to hate mongers on other pods that I have zero interest in.

Things are fading out over on G-Plus. I've been checking back daily and watching as folks pack up, say farewells and lock up the hold place. I've also been here on Pluspora for months now. If you know me or have heard about this place from me then welcome aboard. There are lots of fellow refugees and good people here.

If you have seen and/or interacted with any of my posts, article links etc here on pluspora then you might want to know that just as on G+ I actually post a LOT more than what you see in my public posts. If we are not sharing with each other and you are not in my aspects, you only see 10% of what I post, discuss and get involved in.

I put a lot of what I write behind Aspects, which for me act as private posts. These let me avoid flooding the stream and let folks see posts on specific subjects that they are interested in.

Warning, I am verbose, opinionated and eclectic in my interests.

It also means that I can keep things mostly troll, spam and neo-nazi free. AND that if you see replies/comments from someone in my aspected posts you know that they are also interested in that subject and might be a neat person for you to share with as well on that subject. And probably a generally decent person to know.

Building up private aspect sharing this way allows an emulation of some of the controls that many of us were used to on g+ and other platforms. There is a problem from specific problem pods (what some folks here call the #RudePods or #NaziPods or #TrollPods) on the Diaspora Network. Mostly these are pods filled with MAGA types who have been tossed out of the civilized pods (though some keep multiple sock puppet accounts like they do on Youtube, Twitter etc). Their numbers are few and small and they hate Pluspora for its founder's insistence of maintaining civilized and polite discussion and not allowing members who use anonymous posting to commit what is considered in some states of the USA as hate crimes or libel. Oh and they hate the fact that we are 11,800+ Strong and outnumber them considerably. Unlike Twitter or Facebook they are a minority here.

So, here’s my List of aspects. If you are sharing with me, and not a troll, Anti-LGBT, or rampant neo-nazi/alt-right/fascist kind of person you might want to considering connecting up this way (reply if you are interested in specific aspects). My aspects lists are also a way to find others on pluspora or the diaspora who are not fundamentally rude, crude, blatantly evil or purposely cruel. I don't get along with those types and won't share with them when they are encountered. I am also actively trying to connect up folks with matching interests to develop their own aspect collections with private sharing to shut out those sort sort folks.

One small thing… if all you post is in a non-english language in your own posts then please don’t share with me. I am monolingual for the most part and find that generally translations don’t work here on diaspora. I wish neither of these things were true, but I'm too old to learn more languages.

So, reply and let me know where your interests are :

#Artists (visual, audio, and sometimes performance; includes photography)
#Biography (that is biographic pieces on other people, not mine)
#Cambridge (That would be Cambridge Massachusetts USA)
#CurrentEvents (includes politics, world events, news)
#FictionBooks (I read things that are not in SF/Fantasy)
#FilmAndTv (may include spoilers, criticism, reviews, theory etc.) #Film #TV
#Food (cooking, eating out experiences, recipes, etc.) #Recipies #Cooking
#Gamers (tabletop, rpgs, role-playing, computer, online, design projects, tools & techniques)
#History (includes archaeology etc)
#Humor (comedians, funny life things, memes)
#Life (My personal life; I’m very careful as to who can read these as I do one daily)
#Pagan (neo-pagan etc. Things not in mainstream religion, including mythology)
#Science (includes space, medicine, environment, physics etc.)
#SFAndFantasy (books and other fantastic literature media)
#Technology (includes computers, the internet, AI, robots, etc.)
#Webcomics (not just the funny ones)
#Writers (Includes How to, format, plotting, characterization, world building, criticism/reviews, spoilers, tools)
#Zibaldone (language, culture, mathematics, strange things, philosophy)

There are days where I will only read/post based on my aspects, to avoid the stream firehose, so being in my aspects is more likely to get my involvement in things that you post…

When posting and using hashtags, always Capitalize the first letter, this is so folks with visual impairment who use screen readers can use search aspects effectively on them

Resharing links of articles from elsewhere on the web that I have posted about is fine, if you want to do so in your circles or even in public. Do not do this with my own commentary or discussions of them or anything I have marked with the hashtag #myownwork please, marked that way consider them to be under copyright protection at this time as works in progress.

Note that Videos on Youtube that I link to in my posts can be accessed long after the posts by going to the appropriate Aspect Play List on my channel:

There are days where I will only read/post based on my aspects, to avoid the stream firehose, so being in my aspects is more likely to get my involvement in things that you post…

Resharing links of articles from elsewhere on the web that I have posted about is fine, if you want to do so in your circles or even in public. Do not do this with my own commentary or discussions of them, or anything I have marked with the hashtag #myownwork please, marked that way consider them to be under copyright protection at this time as works in progress.

Note that Videos on Youtube that I link to in my posts can be accessed long after the posts by going to the appropriate Aspect Play List on my channel:

Has everybody seen "Seed - The Untold Story"?


Just watched it and recommend it.

As many documentaries, it should be mostly seen by people who wouldn't watch such documentaries without a nudge. So please go around and nudge others! :)
