    MAKE HISTORY BY SAVING IT. See the beauty of Mes Aynak, and take a stand to stop its destruction. http://igg.me/at/SaveMesAynak Saving Mes Aynak follows archaeologist Qadir Temori as he races against time to save a 5,000-year-old Buddhist archeological site in Afghanistan from imminent demolition. Sold to them by the Afghan government, a Chinese State-owned mining company is closing in on Mes Aynak, eager to harvest $100 billion dollars worth of copper buried directly beneath the archaeological ruins. To get to the copper, however, would mean blowing up the site and reducing it - and an entire mountain range - to rubble. It would mean the forced evacuation and relocation of countless native Afghans from the area, who will never be able to return to their homes due to toxicity from the mining. It would mean erasing from the face of the Earth all of the culture and history that Mes Aynak contains. Although only 10% of the site has been excavated, the discoveries are already rewriting the history of Buddhism, Afghanistan, and us - who we are as human beings. Imagine what is still there, waiting to be re-discovered and shared with the world. Saving Mes Aynak, from the producers of Life Itself and The Interrupters, examines the conflict between cultural preservation and economic opportunity, through the lens of the Afghan archaeologists and local villagers who live and work near Mes Aynak. They face a nearly impossible battle against the Chinese, the Taliban, and local politics to save their culture and heritage from permanent erasure. But we can help. We can stop this from happening. www.savingmesaynak.com

      This is a Herschel set from January 17th, 2012. In in, Herschel performs with no audience...an improv show with only the improvisers, begging the question,if a Herschel falls in the forest and no one hears it, does it actually make a callback? Herschel is Mike Cirelli, Nathan Clancy, Gary DeNoia, Lucas Zachary Hazlett and Erick Hellwig. Special thanks to Dave Herman for videotaping.

          My girlfriend and I just completed the building a of Hexakopter UAV. We are hoping to use this system to autonomously map archaeological sites when wind conditions aren't favorable for my usual KAP work. The "Hexa" is capable of flying via remote control or by uploading a set of predetermined flight plans into the UAV. A digital camera hangs from the bottom of the aircraft and takes still or video images. The in air video from this flight is extremely low resolution (160x140) and will be replaced with HD video (1920x1080).
