Looking Forward To Now
Some time has passed since I've blogged here. First I was too busy to mind, then I took a nice, quiet vacation close to home. Lame excuses, I know. Cheers to starting off 2010 on the good foot. Here are some topics I hope to explore and muse on in the coming days, weeks and months:
Surf Porn 2. "Surf porn" continues to annoy me. (read my original surf porn critique here.)
Peru's forthcoming law to protect waves. In 2010 it's expected to become the world's first law protecting waves and surf spots; that's great news, but it begs independent investigation.
Mapuche Indian Warriors in southern Chile. Our film All Points South is merely a taste of their continuing intense story of ocean pollution, meddlesome surfer-environmentalists and a highly localized community of guerrilleros.
Dane Reynolds, surf star. He's not as dim-witted as we hoped. Nor is he as uncompetitive as soul surfers wished.
Dolphins & Coal. Not sure where this one will lead but it's toxic and involves The Cove, Dave Rastovich and coal power plants.
Art & random interviews with interesting artists, enviros and phoolosophers.
...Please stay tuned.
