A Trip Out East

First day, First photo.

There are still people on this planet who believe Evolution is a lie.

Sometimes you need to ignore the stares.

Sometimes you need to find a safe place.

As usual we didn’t behave like typical vacationers. It’s way more fun our way.

Us at Hopewell Rocks, New Brunswick, 2012.

The Party Pixies

Filed under: art, News — Tags: , , , , , , , , — Sunflower Skins @ 10:01 pm

Tuesday, April 19, 2011: Thom and I go to Toronto to see the Pixies, reunited for a Doolittle tour. Guam and Jekyll sneak into Massey Hall in our backpack and protect our swag, of course.

The show begins with a high-speed version of Un Chien Andalou:

and then the band appears, dressed in street clothes and looking for a good time.

“We had to learn some of these b-sides sides,” Kim says.

Highlights include Frank hoisting his pants in nearly every song, the girl in the left balcony shaking her booty and generally going crazy, Dave’s show-stealing humility during “La La Love You,” …

… Into the White…

After two amazing encores–unexpected Pilgrim songs–Kim says goodnight to each member of the band and then to the audience.

Special thanks to our friend Sean K. Robb for letting us happy punks crash at his place.

So Thom & I went to Toronto and spent most of our time playing with dinosaurs in the room. Really, what else would we have done? Here’s what happened:

Adapting to the Black Pelt Oil Crisis

A Message from Thom Roland & Britani Sadovski

From woolly mammoths in snowy prehistory to elephants on the hot African plains to the many endemic species of the Galapagos Islands, evolution relies on the ability for life to adapt. Following suit of the planet’s ecological state, animals have evolved as steadily—as complexly—as human beings. Until human beings, that is. With our grand delusions of destiny and entitlement we’ve begun to destroy this planet (though some of us try to stop it).

In times of ecological crisis or severe change, animals are faced with a drastically new environment, one to which they must either adapt or become extinct; they are forced to evolve much faster and more radically than the natural progression, or otherwise be obliterated. These environmental changes are either natural or artificially induced by humankind.

The Deepwater Horizon oil spill, though finally capped, will result in more ecological damage than environmental experts can predict. Despite skimming efforts, oil-slicked birds collapse on shores, too heavy to lift a head, and fish lie belly up by the thousands in shiny waters. Oil has destroyed breeding grounds, infiltrated fish eggs, and contaminated algae. Plankton—the food chain’s most basic member—now contains traces of oil, feeding into the larger sources, as fish are eaten by bigger fish—and those in turn by even bigger fish. The entire fishing industry itself will be irreparably harmed once the oil completely spreads throughout the coast and washes to the depths and the shores. As a result of this spill, marine life is forever altered.

The good people in the Sunflower Skins offices are distraught with the idea of losing part of the ocean’s population, yet we retain hope for evolution. While hair growth may provide short-term skin protection, we fear that an equally beneficial reverse-effect is unlikely; forced ecological change, particularly as a coping response, induces premature, accelerated development. Not only will the whales, and potentially the global food supply, have to cope with the oil crisis, they must also learn to behave in a new manner in their new bodies. More than 100 days later we wonder if they’ll survive—and if we, too, will be able to adapt.
