Creative Commons is in the midst of its 2008 fundraising campaign. Find out how you can support Creative Commons at our support site.
To celebrate the campaign, Creative Commons has released “A Shared Culture,” a short video by renowned filmmaker Jesse Dylan. Known for helming a variety of films, music videos, and the Emmy Award-winning “Yes We Can” Barack Obama campaign video collaboration with rapper will.i.am, Dylan created “A Shared Culture” to help spread the word about the Creative Commons mission.
In the video, some of the leading thinkers behind Creative Commons describe how the organization is helping “save the world from failed sharing” through free tools that enable creators to easily make their work available to the public for legal sharing and remix. Dylan puts the Creative Commons system into action by punctuating the interview footage with dozens of photos that have been offered to the public for use under CC licenses. Similarly, he used two CC-licensed instrumental pieces by Nine Inch Nails as the video’s soundtrack music. These tracks, “17 Ghosts II” and “21 Ghosts III,” come from the Nine Inch Nails album Ghosts I-IV, which was released earlier this year under a Creative Commons BY-NC-SA license.

Please don't apologize for your experience! You own whatever happened... and trust me... we *all* had our own meltdowns... :-) I'm so happy for the time we got to spend together out there... Limited as it was, I cherish it. Thank you! And, if you make it or not next year... no matter. You will do what's right for you. Much juicy love to you and Monkey Boy. See you at Decom and we'll share more good stuff! xoxoxoxo

Thanks for coming out to see me in the musical, even tho' you having a meltdown. It was great hearing your voice in the Lounge and hanging out with you that morning (afternoon?). I, too, at this point, will not be back next year. Time to move on, in all aspects of my life. But who knows....it's always possible that next year, both of us will be hanging out together in the Lounge, chatting with Stardust.... (love the photo!)

good idea...Every year, I revisit the question... "Will I go again next year?" I think it's a good question, regardless of the answer... I'm asking that question myself, more seriously than ever after this past year... You were a shiny happy part of my burn & I'm glad that you were in the village & I knew how to find you!

It was so great hanging out with you a bit at Playa Info! One of my favorite memories from PI this year is talking with you and Rooster, and him having you repeat your question so that he could spit his coffee out in response! Too funny! ;D My year wasn't super eventful, but I loved it. ;P *hugs*!!! DeCom fo' sho'

Awwwh!! Happy Anniversary to you two ! Have a fabulous burn Affinity !
I love my TV and I watch a lot of it which is good for my aching neck. TV is a 64 inch tube (stupid choice) less than a year up because we blew all of our electrical appliances in the fall of '05, between the prostate surgery and the hernia surgery. So I try a couple of things last night, I push this, I push that, no luck. Sony is closed for the night. I go on line and find a users manual that is similar to mine, try what they suggest, no luck. Okay, catch up on email and go to bed. Wake up this morning, call Sony, they need the model number which is on the back of this fucking 80 pound tv that is on a shelf at shoulder height....have I tried unplugging it and plugging it back in... Can't help without a model number..I say "can't you just tell me the standard trick for geting these reset....No, we need the model number, you just don't understand, and the supervisor will not talk to me without a model number. So I hang up and take a 2nd look for the manual, Get out every manual, for the refrigerator we don't have any more, etc. And then I move the dressers over the rug and get to the plug, and unplug and plug it back in.
YIPEE!! YIPEE!! YIPEE!! It is making TV noises and there it is, the picture. I AM SO HAPPY.
"The sign of wisdom is a continual cheerfulness" Sometimes a difficult standard to live to....

What do you do on th ePlaya without TV for a week? Do you go through withdrawals? You're a persistent little TV junkie, aren't you! I would have given up!
Wed, August 16, 2006 - 11:37 AM
Armadillo!I don't miss TV on the Playa because thge Playa is so engaging, but I would miss it over the next 10 days and then when I got back, This from a girl who did not own a tv for years....

Thu, August 17, 2006 - 3:08 AM
That is *awesome* that you made it go! I was racking my brain thinking who could fix it as I was reading... LOL! Can't wait to see you on the playa... Where is this camp I hear of with the fabulous view? Me and Mr. 23 will be at 4:00 and Esplanade with Illumination Village. :-) Who knows, tho... maybe we'll run into you and Monkey Boy in Reno on Friday... We'll be stopping by a gun shop, TJ's, and visiting steve's great uncle felix, among other things. See you out there!

On Friday evening the Flaming Lotus Girls are throwing a fundraiser at the Cracktory and then the Pre-Compression party on Satyrday night at the Pound.

Written and directed by John Palmer and David Weisman, Ciao! Manhattan is the semi-biographical tale of 1960s counterculture icon Edie Sedgwick. Ciao! follows young Susan Superstar (Sedgwick) through her tumultuous party years in Manhattan as one of Warhol's Superstars. Through actual audio recordings of Sedgwick's account of her time in Warhol's Factory in New York City, paired with clips from the original unfinished script started in 1967, Ciao! captures the complete deterioration of Sedgwick's fictional alter-ego. The striking similarities between Sedgwick and Susan's life story, especially when recounted by Sedgwick in the midst of drug-induced audio interviews, make the film's candid depiction of excess and celebrity especially haunting. The film is dedicated to the memory of Sedgwick and ends with the actual headlines announcing Sedgwick's (not Susan Superstar's) untimely death, thus inseparably associating the fictional and the genuine figure.

We had always assumed that the surgery had taken care of the cancer so when this unclear test result showed up in the spring, it was unsettling. We are thrilled to be back on the track of our belief that the cancer is gone and all is well.
