THE SHORTLIST (DAY 3) The Arcade Fire

It took me a lot of thought to come up with number 3. Honestly, there’s a ton of Film Directors, Actors and various other people I would love to work with!

In the end, I decided to go with The Arcade Fire. Honestly…I’m a big fan! It’s that simple. Although I’m focusing on my acting career right now, I would love to direct a music video for them. I’d love to play a role in one of their music videos as well!

And between you and me… I absolutely adored observing people’s reactions last year when their album, The Suburbs, won the Grammy for Best Album! Many good laughs were had!

Here’s the Music Video for their Title Track…The Suburbs, directed by Spike Jonze (another name that could go on the list!) 


Behind the Scenes: Transformation Meditation Stopmotion Animation

This particular behind the scenes includes a conversational interview between  April Anna and myself with regards to the subject of letting go to meditation.


At long last April Anna and I are ready to show you the fruits of our labour of Love! Check out the stop motion video she edited on her blog. It is simply fantastic work in my humble opinion. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it!

…And a great big thank you to April Anna for her dedicated, inspired work, generosity and wisdom!

Nurture your Wisdom, Reason and Compassion

Today I am self-employed. After years of trying to fit into the system and getting spit out every which way, I decided to say fuck it and followed my own heart and intuition instead. I don’t buy the old fallacy of appeal to authority you see.

Today I am all about opening eyes, hearts and souls. Instead of struggling to make money, like everyone else, I decided to face my fear of scarcity. I’ve opened my eyes to the fact that debt is inherent to the economic system. On a Global scale, there is always more debt than money available. And the discrepancy keeps on growing. Today, 15 million children die of starvation every year. Today, those who are truly in power are the multinationals who have the money and influence to buy out any Supreme Court judge, politician or President. If we let them. Our Home is in deep suffering and we are all controlled to some extent by our conditioning and our individual and collective fear. Our monetary system promotes egocentrism. It promotes the idea of Win/Lose, whether you personally believe in Win/Win or not.

A time of Great Change is at hand. You must make a choice today. You will either accept and promote the needed change, or you will resist it. Just as you suffer when you resist the Present Moment, you will suffer if you resist this Great Change. A very wise man once said, truthfully: “The only Constant in the Universe is Change”.

The only Constant in the Universe is Change

What this Great Change will be exactly is still unknown. To me, it is a blissful, poetic mystery. To you, it may be a source of fear and anxiety. It all depends on your perspective. You have a very important part in how all of this will unfold.

We must be creative. We must promote the idea of giving for the sake of giving. We must inhabit it, live it and breathe it. We must be the change we want to see in the world. We must be stronger than the conditioning we’ve been given. We must awaken to our own potential. We must expand our sense of self to include the other.

That’s what Love is.

Love yourself first. No matter what. It is the only way to love others unconditionally. Nurture your wisdom, reason and compassion.

Thank you for reading. Feel free to re-read it at will. Let it sink in.

I Just Woke Up From This Most Amazing Dream…

Santiago de Chile. January 18 2012. 5h28am


I was at some log cabin with a bunch of friends, artists and soulmates. Past, present and future. We were having the time of our lives! We were being sillier than silliness incarnated…And then a little more silly! I woke up as we were group hugging each other, rolling on the floor and laughing blissfully. You were all there! You know who you are. I wish you could have lived the dream with me! 

…This will have to do I suppose! I love life and I love each and every one of you!

The Art of April-Anna

The other night I had a very deep experience. I thought I was going in for an art project. What I got instead was an introspective journey! I met April Anna just recently and I have to tell you, this woman is a very deep and spiritual soul! She has a great sense of humor as well! I can’t wait to show you what we did together…

In the meantime, why don’t you check out her bodypainting website?

The Bestest New Year’s Resolution EVER!

No more Yearly Resolutions!

Even betterer…Resolve to make resolutions only in the present. Give yourself that present! For example, right now I want to face my fear of the cold and the humidity…I go outside and I go to the local swimming pool at the YMCA!

Contrast that with “This year…I’m quitting smoking!”

…You’ll probably feel bad about breaking that New Year’s Resolution a week or so from now…You’re going to need to light up another one! 

Find the courage to face your fears in the Present Moment! Don’t think about it.

Just do.
