FREEDUM



we are in control
of the level of our joy
and sorrow








F R E E D U M
(an exercise in random sampling)

volume up . 720p



odd new experiment
look at 5K+ pictures in my photo library
and pick a hundred that most move me
and make a video of that

right
midnight
you have 24 hours
go

ha, well ok. It appeared early on
that quite obviously ... women
were superior to men
so let's start there

but that's just an educated guess
and men control education
so it's inconclusive

there is a way
to let go

I would rather celebrate
and move forward
in every second
that remains

remixing the remix '22



I call the process 'random sampling'


thinking - maybe a THREE LIVES thing
family? check.

I mean w/5K pictures to look at
you look for clumps that show promise
more than individual photos
a particular subset of files with
a sign of gold beneath
the surface


adobe bridge - 24hrs?
ok 48, scouring early mixes
audio/music? ... your call

holy shit, this early edit of borderlines
works mint w/this music
and now if I ... ok, now this
It already has my favourite 100!
I've already done this

when all said & done, there's a timeline
and a proposed narrative!



FREEDUM TRUMPS FREEDOM!

SALAAM/THALAIVA

that there are certain qualities 
that make you a divine human being

FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH
the story behind salaam/thalaiva


I lived up in the Punjab in 2008 for a few months
not sure why but I fell in love with India
from the onset
it wasn't the warm air, that masala hint
mass confusion - a magic

an innocence if you will
a rare transparency that is endearing
their 'business' is ruthless
but their humanity
is mint

I remember once having a few days off
going to a hole in the wall cinema
it was dirty and people dressed in rags
watching bollywood

90 min movie - 60 was dancing/singing
Ya, so SALAAM/THALAIVA 
it's a late Aug thing

This is what it feels like there, Mohali 
in late November - celebrating the Diwali

this is a preview of 
Diwali 22 (coming 10.22)
