Earth, the magnetic potato?

Scientists in Munich have presented their research on how the Earth’s oceans might look if not for its internal currents, tides and the weather. Are we a rotating potato? Check the link.

Lightning In a Bottle Festival Line-Up Announced +a Link to 33 Mixes for your EarHoles

Looking for Some Music to Stream while you go about your business? The Lightning in a Bottle Festival  (see my POST from 2/27) just ended their MixTape competition, and 33 people submitted mixes. Basically the only requirements were that the mix could only include artists that were on the Line-Up for the Festival, and it had to be 30-60 minutes long.

So… aside from the amazing MUSIC taking place at this 4 day festival on Memorial Day Weekend, there is also AMAZING ART! The folks running this festival just recently released the ARTIST LINE-UP for “Lightning in a Paintcan” (raising funds through a silent auction for the DoArt Foundation, a non-profit organization). Here is a ScreenShot to give you a taste of the Phenomenal Artwork you can catch live at the Festival.

Well this year, one of the featured artists includes a Local Arizona Artist who goes by the name of GRIFFIN ONE. Check out http://www.GriffinOne.com to peep his art. Here is the info about him on the Lightning in a Bottle Site. There will be a forthcoming post that covers this Renaissance Man’s diversity of creations, but for now, here are some images to salivate your senses:

Lightning in a Bottle 2011

Another Dazzling Earth-Friendly Dope Summer Art & Music Festival (w/Camping!)

Pre-Sale Tix Mon, Feb 28

Now that I have locked down my tickets for Burning Man (see my post from January 31),  the annual festival in Black Rock City, NV, and what I and at least 100,000 others humans consider to be the most creative event that humans have happening on this planet, it’s time to plan for another DOPE festival at the end of May: Lightning in a Bottle put on by the Do Lab crew from LA.

Also this festival was recently awarded an *OUTSTANDING* Greener Festival Award!

They had a stage last year at Coachella if you were there (see below).

Anyway I went to LIB last year and camped out for 4 days. It was pretty much the most well-organized, enjoyable, and tree-shaded festival I have ever been to! They even had FREE WATER STATIONS available to everyone there. There were amazing artists, 3 excellent stages of glitch, dubstep, breaks, house and all kinds of tasty beats, including Middle Eastern Music, funk, and various electronica. Performers included: Nosaj Thing, Stephan Jacobs, MartyParty, Mimosa, Vibesquad, Lucent Dossier, Jupit3r, Daddy Kev & Nobody, Eliot Lipp, Heyoka, & Daedelus….

There were AMAZING artist painting live under the trees, as well as some of the coolest art installations and sculptures I have ever seen. The vendor’s section was amazing… oh and they had trapeze artists, belly dancers and fire-artists.

They even had a HUGE (I’m talking 100s of feet) Earth Harp!! So tasteful and elegant too… It’s kind of like a smaller-scale version of Burning Man, but with Trees & Water!

My favorite stop on the walk up the hill from the stages to the campgrounds was the huge TUB that my friends drove out there.

It was sponsored by the grandson of Dr. Bronner’s soap (link) and featured Dr. Bronner’s minty foam soap and a rinse (about 15 foam tubes and 15 shower heads coming out of the walls of this massive Tub! Since it was the only shower for about 1000s of folks, it was a hotspot indeed!
