Organic Love Dance Deemed Most Beautiful



Pilobolus: A performance merging dance and biology (video)
Otis Cook and Jennifer Macavinta perform the organic love dance, "Symbiosis."
The music, recorded by the Kronos Quartet on Nonesuch Records, is a compilation of works: "God Music" from Black Angels by George Crumb, "Fratres" by Arvo Pärt, and "Morango ... Almost a Tango" by Thomas Oboe Lee.

The flow and tenderness of the dance defies time and gravity -- something you'll never see of hear on prime time game shows with dime store dancing. Much freedom is given the dancers by the liberating music of Crumb, Part and Lee. Many dancers never seem to understand how restricting so much of popular music really is.

I hope you enjoy this. It is worth the wait.

Iddybud Journal: Iraq-Recession Campaign

Iddybud Journal: Iraq-Recession Campaign

Jude's excellent summation of the Iraq-Recession Campaign...

[excerpt]

"This morning, former U.S. Senator and presidential candidate John Edwards and his wife Elizabeth Edwards joined top anti-Iraq war leaders to announce the launch of a new nationwide, multimillion dollar campaign aimed at shining a light on the cost of war in Iraq. The new Iraq/Recession Campaign was launched with a teleconference.

As economic concerns weigh heavily on the minds of Americans, opposition to President Bush's reckless war in Iraq continues to grow. The massive cost of the war in Iraq- hurtling toward one trillion dollars - has increased demand for a strategy to bring U.S. troops home. The Iraq/Recession Campaign will highlight the majority of Americans who want to see leadership on investing in critical priorities at home and establishing real security throughout the world."
