1. Bad Dirt, Bad Water, Bad Farms


    from Bruce Tokars Added

    Bad Dirt, Bad Water, Bad Farms is the story about the toxic land on the west side of the Central Valley. In the mid-1980’s America was shocked to learn about deformed and dying birds at the Kesterson Wildlife Refuge in California. It took nearly five years (and a story on CBS’s 60-Minutes) before the Federal government closed Kesterson and attempted to clean it up. But what is not widely known is that the very same toxic substance that was at the heart of the Kesterson disaster, is present in huge quantities today on the west side of the Central Valley. Big industrial agriculture growers don’t want to talk about it, but their continuing production on toxic soil requires excessive use of subsidized fresh water. In fact, so much of the land is recognized as being unsustainable that if were taken out of production, enough water could be saved and redirected to address the problems of the Sacramento Delta. You won’t hear Big Ag talk about it though, so we will. This is a story that brings us yet another damn good reason to vote NO on the water bond in November. Putting an $11.1 Billion dollar charge on California’s already bankrupt credit card is madness! There are already plenty of laws on the books about water. Instead of creating more laws and putting us further into debt, the laws already in place should be enforced – something that doesn’t happen because the water pirates don’t want it to happen. Share this eye-opening video with your friends, family and co-workers and learn how a simple solution to a complex problem can make what is wrong, right again. Vote NO on the water bond.

          • Filipino Wedding in Winnipeg + The Delta


            from Bond Freyer Added 651 0 0

            Highlights from last Saturday's crazy cool wedding. Chastity & Rodel tied the knot and although they have been together for a while and have gone through some interesting times - Rodel still choked up when she walked down the aisle. When it came to the vows everyone laughed out loud when Rodel stumbled on his words, but I think it was so that they did not have to pull out the tissues... It was so - genuine! We had the traditional Filipino Catholic ceremony and then headed out to go have some fun in front of and behind the cameras. We stopped outside Fort Gibraltar, walked around the Waterfront side of the exchange and ended up at the new Hydro building. The entourage was a lot of fun and provided us with lots of laughs and funny photos. Chas & Rodel worked it in front of the camera - they had good practice... Remember their wicked Connection session in the mud?? So awesome... The Delta looked incredible part because it is a great location and huge part due to Madeline's Weddings who did a great job decorating. We also set up a photo-booth - red carpet style - and the guest had fun with that late into the night. I love the photos we captured and look forward to a Fearless Bride session sometime soon : ) Congratulations Chas & Rodel! You guys are beautiful apart and even more so together. Take care of each other and I'm sure you guys are great parents to the Chas' beautiful girl already. Modern Wedding Photography in Winnipeg www.blfstudios.com

              • Hyperlite Tribute


                from Hyperlite Wakeboards Added 802 0 0

                The Tribute is a shape designed for the true freeride experience. Built off of a 2.55" continuous rocker line it carries awesome speed into the wake and all the pop you need. Combined with a variable edge design which rolls from soft between your feet to a sharp cupped rail tip and tail, this board is as quick and responsive as they come. A new feature that strays from traditional Hyperlite shapes however is the Tributes shorter curved molded in fins. Ending almost two inches from the tip and tail of the board, it's just enough fin to know it's there and working but nothing to delay release off the wake. All in all the Tribute is a great addition to the line, and definitely a shape and a ride Hyperlite has never offered before.

                    • Ligerian Blues - Deltas


                      from kazamix records Added 118 0 0

                      Deltas is an acoustic musical duo made up of Richard Bourreau et Vincent Erdeven who are part of the band Lajo and Zenzile. Around the sound of the strings of guitar, kora and violin, the dialogues invite you to let it go with the current. An aquatic Odysey which can be compared to a river taking its source within the limits of their imagination, pouring into the mouth of your ears. It is a Ligerian Blues suggesting journeys and meditation. Deltas invites you on board to share a moment of serenity. Sometimes accompanied by Andra Kouyaté (n'goni, n'gont bass) the trio re-invent a new harmony to obtain different colours. ................................................................................................................................ Réunis par la passion des musiques mandingues et d’Afrique de l’ouest, Richard Bourreau (Lo'Jo) et Vincent Erdeven (Zenzile) composent des cartes postales sonores. Avec ce projet Niagami initié à Bamako, elles sont le reflet du delta du Niger dans le miroir des eaux de Loire. Les deux Angevins Vincent Erdeven, au clavier et à la guitare chez Zenzile et Richard Bourreau, violoniste chez Lo’jo mais aussi affûteur de la kora, la harpe mandingue et de l’imzad, la vièle des touaregs, enlacent leur vision passionnée des musiques d’Afrique de l’Ouest. Sous leurs doigts, naît alors un blues d’ici, empreint du delta du Niger, qui trace une ligne Angers-Bamako en toute simplicité et sensibilité. credits releases 27 March 2013 Releases 27 March 2013 Kora, Violon ; Richard Bourreau Guitar; Vincent Erdeven Ngoni ; Andra Kouyaté Drawing ; Roberta Pracchia Recording ; Jérome Pinçon Mastering and Artwork ; Frédéric Bellanger © kazamix records 2013
