Volkswagen Group.

German engineering for everyone.  They have about 30 factories pumping out 7.2 million cars a year stamped with 10 different brands including Lamborghini and Bentley.  The only thing more eerily impressive than the engineering in these vehicles is the social engineering used to create them.  We just lucked into a seat for the grand opening ceremony of the only North American VW plant.  An enormous theatrical production in itself.  The plant is controlled now, along with a large segment of our local economy, by a classic Wilsonian example of a Superorganism.  This guy is the queen ant.

Dad, brother and me just dragged a '77 bus into my garage.  I'm helping a friend shop for another one in an hour.  But it is the Superorganisms that will probably last.

Like cold water.

Incredible movie from the guys at Astray films.  A surf flick in spirit, not necessarily in content. Good advice.  Very difficult to follow. Watch it in HD.

Sequatchie Cove

Potluck sounds lucky when you're headed to the Cove.  Tonight will be good.

Market Day

It's Wednesday, and I look forward to the Farmer's Market here every week.  Last week I spend days shooting local farms for a new commercial about food.  Tomorrow we'll spend the evening in Sequatchie Cove - where our milk and cheese and so many other good things come from.  Reading about war and rough times all around, we're lucky that Tennessee hills hug us like Trimble says.

Hooray for Earth

Great video from the True Loves.  Has everything - desert, sea, rocks, beats, spectral women.
