      TRACK TWENTY: song for the collectors | 4min 40sec | DV | 2011 A search for fulfillment through the collecting of metaphysical experiences leads viewers into a desensitized world where an isolated individual finds solace in his peculiar obsessions, private possessions and favorite television programs. In the video short, “Song for the Collectors”, images of tragic environmental disasters and sensational web videos blend with bits of iconic pop imagery to tell the story of a collector who has lost touch with reality in pursuit of collectible memorabilia connected to grand and catastrophic environmental events. “Song for the Collectors” begins with a voice narrating instructions for encapsulating the flow of environmental energies inside of colored containers. Video of a drifting balloon and cropped still images from Warhol’s Marilyn, help to illustrate the instructions. As the video continues, the narrator begins recalling personal adventures associated with his collecting. Historic volcanic eruptions and devastating hurricanes become destinations for his obsessions and as the thrill of collecting triumphs over the tragedy at hand. The videos insertion of a single image from Warhol’s “Green Car Crash”, a painting depicting an overturned car in flames with the driver's catapulted body impaled on a post, might best sum up the conundrum of the collector where the reality of what is being collected falls victim to the individual's drive to posses and profit. What are we chasing, missing, overlooking or insensitive to in pursuit of personal fulfillment? Has the daily repetition of death and destruction in the media truly numbed us to the tragedy of our situation? Are the frequencies and severity of disasters truly being recognized or has the tragic simply become better television? video & music: written, recorded, performed and edited by t.becker | backing vocals - Erin Becker | 2011 | public domain footage - prelinger archives

                This year has been exasperating in regards to Mother Nature unleashing her worst on the U.S. with record tornados, hurricanes, earthquakes, fires, floods, blizzards, etc. Since credit unions, like so many other businesses, have been adversely affected by these natural disasters, we invited Ongoing Operations' Founder and CEO, Kirk Drake, on the program for his expert insight on how to prepare and cope when the weather rears its ugly head. Kirk also points out that not only did the weather impact credit unions, non-weather related events can wreak havoc on operations as well. Kirk provides some helpful business continuity tips, along with a few credit union examples to show what can be done. It was a pleasure having Kirk on the show because I think this is an important issue to cover. I hope you take a few minutes and enjoy the show.

                    This video was taken 9th January 2011. The night before worst flooding disaster in Australian history. Grantham Queensland. At the time was trying to see the funny side of a normal flood event in Grantham. This footage was the 4th time we had been flooded since Boxind Day December 2010, 4 floods in 12 days. So was a bit over floods by this time. This Weather report has been translated the way a leyman understands most reports... Little did in know how different it would be 16 hours later... Armourgedon came to town and mother nature gave us a kicking. . .
