Mental Mayhem, Son of a Gypsy






Mr. Mayhem in Philly, 2009, on set for his cameo in the Ellis Ashbrook music video shoot of Hard To Be Easy .

Mayhem's gift is tangling words and meanings while tying your brain into a mental launch pad to vivid encounters from day to day existence.  He recommends calming down and opening up.

QUEENS!

Summer 2009 is over.  It had some good views, like this one looking over the East River and Queens from a Delta flight coming in from Minneapolis.  It was one of the nicer days of the year.  I remember thinking to myself, "Queens is massive."

You know this year it's rained more days in New York then in Seattle?

A View No More

MONTANA!



Boulder Creek and the West Fork Valley, Western Montana , near the Continental Divide.  

The West Fork of the Bitterroot River sits in a steeply pitched valley surrounded by a dense carpet of firs and pines.  Don't be surprised if you run into a Mountain Lion  Timber Wolf or Moose out here...  They like their space.

Urban Bears Are Hard To Find



Flatbush, Brooklyn

Upon spotting an urban bear, the quickest was to assure safe passage down the block is to calmly switch your phone to speaker mode, and hope you've already downloaded anything at 120 beats per minute.  From there, dance at your own discretion, the bear will not hurt you, he'll only want to dance more.

WILD WEST

video

Camping and fishing on the Selway River in Idaho's Bitterroot National Wilderness Area was worth every mile of driving, walking and wading to get into it's currents. You can see how clear the water is, totally amazing. We were catching Bull Trout on Caddis and Hopper Fly's.

ATTN: ENVIRO's- Get Down to Louisiana


Behind a Shell Station looking toward an Exxon Plant, Jefferson Parrish, LA

Forget the Amazon.  The largest wetland wilderness in the North American continent is disappearing 1 football field a day and it looks like public apathy may get the better of a national treasure.  It's a damn shame.  

To get involved in Louisiana, or anywhere natural waterways are being threatened, check out a great organization named the Water Keeper Alliance.  They are serious about keeping our water clean and need a lot of help.  It is OURS, and WE can make or break it.

Alligator Bayou, LA.... Reporting from the South



Three alligators in Alligator Bayou East of Baton Rouge, LA.

Urban sprawl in Baton Rouge is threatening the future of these prehistoric reptiles and their swamp. New residential development--planned communities-- have been spreading like wild fire surrounding the wetland area post-Katrina and already new residents are calling for the swamp to be drained. The alligators will have no where to go and will be rounded up and most likely shot. The politics are tricky and go way back, it looks like the alligators will loose their swamp.

It is a shame that state and federal lawmakers/ regulators do not see what is at stake here. Ecologically, the food chain is disrupted with untold consequences and the once delicate ecosystem is scarred permanently until long after the extinction of humans. Just look at the Lower 9th Ward, vegetation regains the neighborhood block after block deeper and thinker every single day.

It would take a serious private investor to stand up first and foot the bill for proper legal protection of the swamp. It's a cantaloupe for President Obama, too. Real change would be the reversal of fortune for southern Louisiana. Not to mention the tons of agro-waste sent from the mid-west and the miles of chemical refineries lining the Mississippi River-- the life source of that entire region-- no body is doing a damn thing to stop it.

Dead Zones, Superfund Sites , toxic Northerlies; the list of horror goes on and yet nothing towards actual turn around. It's sad.
