Video Party to Celebrate 10 000th hit – bring popcorn!!

with 4 comments

The last thing we need to do is revalidate the obsession with decimal milestones. . . but I also figure 666 666 hits is a pipedream so please enjoy this passing moment in blogging hysteri-er-history.

It’s a good excuse to share one of the most beautiful bits of longform music video I’ve ever seen. Although you no doubt share my disdain for decimophilia, please oblige your ears, eyes, brain and soul with this little celebration feast.

Turn the lights right down, turn the volume way up, and set faces to stunned.

Cancer – An Extreme Alternative?

with 5 comments

As an ‘alternative health’ practitioner – trained, qualified, and practising in shiatsu – cancer in all its manifestations is one of the most confronting dis-eases I have ever had to work with. Although I can only imagine how it feels for family members or, moreso, the patient, I have lost friends to leukemia at very young ages, and sufferers have shared their stories with me in ways that are generous, brave, and heartbreaking.
