As I’ve poked around in old categories and posts, it has been satisfying to see the successful fundraisers for children in Haiti and on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. There’s also some not-half-bad stuff strewn about the site among the broken links and out-of-date formatting.
However, it has become painfully clear that I’ve started a lot of stuff I haven’t finished. I know that nobody cares (or is even aware of this) except me, but I need closure. I need to clear the decks before I sail into uncharted waters.
I thought about just deleting all the evidence and starting fresh. I may still do that, but for now I feel compelled to create a list of all the things I’m not going back to and continuing on this blog.
I guess this is a blogger’s confessional of sorts. I confess that I have sinned against you by what I have done, and by what I have left undone.
- I quit trying to have lucid dreams using my brainwave entrainment app.
- I have no intention of doing more Rule of Life posts.
- I will not organize a caper. Sorry, Bob Goff.
- The Collective Podcast is dead.
- I have given up on the idea of an online art auction for the Lakota.
I think that’s it. There, I feel better. Thanks for indulging me. I will now move on with freedom and joy.
I would like to get back to MonkCasting. Also, is anyone up for group online spiritual experimentation in a Google Hangout?
It looks like a computer art student at the School of Visual Arts in New York City recently turned in his thesis animation. “Oscillate” by Daniel Sierra just hit the YouTube and Vimeo a few days ago.
Daniel said that his goal with this video “was to visualize waveform patterns that evolve from the fundamental sine wave to more complex patterns, creating a mesmerizing audio-visual experience in which sight and sound work in unison to capture the viewer’s attention.”
Mission accomplished, Daniel! Thanks for your entrancing addition to the Internet stream of collective consciousness.

Usually I’m paralyzed and the evil spirits are in the bedroom with me. I try to stop them before they get to my family. I have varying levels of success. I’ll wake up slurring louder and louder, “In the name of Jesus, get out!” It all feels so real. Who knows? Maybe it is… really messes with my head.
Hearing comedian Mike Birbiglia talk about his life-threatening sleepwalking on This American Life made me think of my demons. Check out the segment below. It’s funny and freaky too. (Jump to 7:51 for Mike, but it’s all good.)
I’m thankful that I don’t sleepwalk and act out my demon slaying sessions like Mike acts out his dreams. Although, now that I think of it, one time I did go into the closet while sleeping and I peed in my wife’s shoes. But that didn’t have anything to do with demons… except maybe the booze demon.
File this one under altered states of consciousness. And, oh yeah, Mike has a new movie out based on his experiences, Sleepwalk with Me.
