Brain Candy — Ex Tagger Art as Performance, Big Al edition.
Visiting friends now, just before I head off to my mountain internet-less fastness.
Last night I got to talking with the eighteen year old in the house, who has been doing remarkable work with at-risk kids in his community* and he showed me this video taken at the big inspirational conference his organization put on to connect with the community with whom they engage.
For reasons that are probably obvious to regulars here, it connected with me.
*word from the street: marijuana is the easiest abusable substance to get, and causes few problems; alcohol is only slightly more difficult for underage drinkers to acquire, but causes many, many problems. California voters this November might want to take note.
