Hurricanes, Elections & Nor’easters, Oh My

0

Having overcome powerlessness, exercised my right to vote (and my gluts on the all-up-hill walk home from my polling place!) and let out a hefty sigh of relief that there wasn’t any serious electile dysfunction, we thought we’d be on the air last night for our postponed first show from last week, but . . . Athena had other plans. So, when did we start naming winter storms anyway? Does the naming make it more significant?

It was a pretty winter wonderland for those of us fortunate enough to have power, thus heat. I felt REALLY bad for my friends who are still struggling in cold dark houses. I invited them all over, but everyone just hunkered down in their own digs for the duration. Fortunately, Athena was more hype than heavy snow, but the roads were terrible last night and our fearless HomeGrownRadioNJ leader, who needed to come by and finish the rest of the wiring couldn’t get here. So, in favor of safety and not stressing anyone out (remember Green Divas are low-stress), we will postpone for yet another fun-filled week.

Meanwhile we have been in the new GD studio getting ready. Green Diva Mizar and I are trying not to have too much fun, but when she unearthed a purple tiara from the GD costume closet, it was kind of hard to keep a straight face.

There will be no shortage of fun content from this studio!

We are soooooo grateful for those that are helping us navigate the minefield of odd impediments to get us on the air! Our intern Green Diva Jamie is amazing and has stepped up way beyond the call of duty and has done the job of a professional associate producer! Our new audio engineer, Green Dude Rigel is busy recording and mixing us some new pre-recorded fun.

Overall, we are sidestepping the madness as best we can and are going to hit the airwaves – hard – next week, November 15 with one of our favorite guests, Jessica Arinella from What You Can Do TV series.

Then of course, it is time for turkey and gratitude and we’ll be back on November 29, with the patient and flexible Mariel Hemingway to talk about what the heck happened to Prop 37, why GMOs suck and what we can do moving forward.

A Fierce Green Fire

Spanning 50 years of grassroots and global activism, this Sundance documentary brings to light the vital stories of the environmental movement where people fought – and succeeded – against enormous odds. From halting dams in the Grand Canyon to fighting toxic waste at Love Canal; from Greenpeace to Chico Mendes; from climate change to the promise of transforming our civilization, A Fierce Green Fire is “nothing less than the history of environmentalism itself.” (Los Angeles Times). Official Selection Sundance Film Festival.

Occupy Love

Join acclaimed director Velcrow Ripper (Scared Sacred, Fierce Light) on a journey deep inside the revolution of the heart that is erupting around the planet, as he asks the question, “How could the crisis we are facing become a love story?”

Occupy Love explores the growing realization that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness or meaning. The old paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is causing economic and ecological collapse. The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound awakening:  millions of people are deciding that enough is enough –  the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life.

The film connects the dots in this era of rapidly evolving social change, featuring captivating insider scenes from the Egyptian Revolution, the Indignado uprising in Spain, Occupy Wall Street in New York, the environmental movement and beyond. Woven throughout the action oriented backbone of the film is a deep exploration of public love, and compelling stories of an emerging new paradigm. It features some of the world’s key visionaries on alternative systems of economics, sustainability, and empathy, including Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Jeremy Rifkin, and bell hooks.

Occupy Love is a moving, transformative, heartfelt film, featuring Ripper’s signature stunning visuals and rich soundscapes. A powerful cinematic experience leaves viewers inspired.
