Kid's Rights: Play, Education & Clean Water

Aight, so you don't wanna draw on GE's Imagination White Board (see below)...I'm gettin' that. But the video below contains the most ingenious invention: Play Pumps. Children play on the merry-go-round and simultaneously pump water for their village. Girls are benefiting especially because they can go to school instead of fetching water. Imagination WAS here!


imagination cubed by GE (and you)

it's alive....

after you see my dorky drawing just click "start your own drawing" (cause lord knows yours will be betta than mine) and then post what you done did in the comments so we can all see, pretty please with skittles and pez on top.

p.s. i'm putting $2 on Kuh's being extra incredibullness


Imagination Inspires Nations...if you want

Hold your breath
Make a wish
Count to three

Come with me
And you'll be
In a world of
Pure imagination
Take a look
And you'll see
Into your imagination

We'll begin
With a spin
Traveling in
The world of my creation
What we'll see
Will defy

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it
Wanta change the world?
There's nothing
To it

There is no
Life I know
To compare with
Pure imagination
Living there
You'll be free
If you truly wish to be

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it
Anything you want to, do it
Wanta change the world?
There's nothing
To it

There is no
Life I know
To compare with
Pure imagination
Living there
You'll be free
If you truly
Wish to be

hair is frizzed!

So much fun!

Sooo many new and old supporters came!

Band "Death on Two Wheels" was hot!

Tendaberry rocked hard!

Deep Cotton was sick!

Everybody was just fantastic.

We sang, jumped, poured water, jumped on speakers, threw beta 58's and
mic stands, climbed through windows! The list goes on!

Thank you all for coming. I love you!

If you missed, I am sure I'll work in another show next month and i

Talkin Bout a Revolution...

"When President Kennedy was shot that fall, I heard the news over the radio while I was alone painting in my studio.  I don't think I missed a stroke.  I wanted to know what was going on out there, but that was the extent of my reaction."-- Andy Warhol, November of 1963

"Those that believe it cannot be done are usually interrupted by others doing it."-- James Baldwin

Some artists give their audience questions. Other artists give their audience answers.

Some artists never stop working, a war could be going on outside their window, and they remain artistes-- pursuing their own unique apolitical version of truth and beauty.  While others, like Norman Mailer and many in the black canon, cannot exist outside of the politics of the community--their truth and beauty is locked in the political nature of American life.

Well, Andy Warhol was never interrupted. 

He built his world around the notion of the Factory. 

He laid his canvases out dozens at a time and moved through them with his assistants like an android, toiling from morning to night. 

He did exhibit a political sensibility as seen in pieces like "Big Electric Chair" and "Five Deaths," which respectively depicted the horror of modern electric chairs and the crush of modern mortality known as the auto accident.

But Warhol became known for his dispassion. 

While other artists like Dylan crooned about change, Warhol kept quiet and converted his artistic process into a mechanical one: he gave up the brush and pen, relinquished his inimitable human touch for the silkscreen and the whir of modernity.

Then there's James Baldwin.

A fiery man who became so busy marching and politicking and essaying that he stopped writing novels altogether in the '60s.  When asked about the delay between his novels, he snapped: "Well, you have to remember I was working between assassinantions....They're killing my friends!"

As critics began to denounce his work as propaganda, James soldiered on.  He was in search for truth in the here and now.  He was waging a different kind of war, like a boxer fighting folks on every street corner instead of in the ring.  Perhaps the aesthetics of his work did suffer.  Perhaps his greatest work remains The Fire Next Time and the countless of other essays he wrote that fired up the muskets of change during the civil rights movement.

But who cares? As an artist, you yourself decide how you'll live your life, and what you'll do what with the gifts and the moments Yahweh has given you.  As a member of an artistic movement, you write your own manifesto and decide how you'll work through the snare of art vs. propaganda.

I bring all this up because we at Wondaland voted today.  Many of us voted for Obama.  But we encouraged everyone to vote, to engage in the political process.

We believe in questions. We believe in answers.  As much as we believe in rabbitholes.  And the interruption of reality with wonder and magic. 

We are still very much of the world and engaged in changing it on an active level.  

Which sometimes means a ballot box...

and at other times means a bullet...

or perhaps a brush...

You decide...

Truly blessed

I want to thank New York for such a hot welcome on last week.

You welcomed me with open minds.

Magic happened.

For this, I hope we never marginalize a city or a race again.

I want to thank my supporters, past and present, for walking with me
to the future of what you have been experiencing.

Understand, what will and is supposed to happen is bigger than me,
you, any one man or woman.

We have to get focused.

Let us focus.

We have to stay positive.

Let us stay focused.

Let us start a fire.

Already started.

With love,



Yes We Can
