NEW PROMO! and whatever…

I just put another trailer for the Cleveland’s Screaming documentary up on You Tube. You can also see it on your right over there under the links. You Tube is some weird mojo.

I walked to my post office this morning. There are two post offices in my vicinity. One is about 5 minute’s walk away. But that’s not the one that delivers to my place. It’s actually in Beverly Hills, while my apartment is in Los Angeles. The post office that delivers to my place takes about half an hour to get to on foot. But I hate driving, and I especially hate driving there. So mostly when I have to go there, I hoof it. My friend Hiroshi Maruyama, who designs all the monsters Ultraman fights, sent me a dinosaur book from Japan that wouldn’t fit in my mailbox. So I had to go retrieve it.

It’s funny to note the cultural differences between the two post offices. The one in Beverly Hills is very open, spacious and welcoming. The one in Los Angeles has all of the workers encased behind inch-thick plexiglass. I’m never sure if this is intended to protect the postal workers from the customers or to protect the customers from potential psycho postal employees. This is some weird kinda place I live in, I tell you what.

Next month I’ll be in Hastings, Nebraska doing a lecture at Hastings College. The lecture is on October 24th. I know nothing about Nebraska. My mom was born there, but the family moved to Ohio shortly afterward. So I guess I have some connection to that state. But I’ve never been there. Can’t even imagine what it’s like. But it should be fun.

Next Sunday I’m giving a talk at the Karuna Yoga Studio in Los Angeles’ Los Feliz section. I’m not sure if the general public can attend or not, or if it’s just for members of that studio. I’ll post when I know.

    Take a quick read of Charles Bukowski’s “Post Office” and
    you’ll know for whom the glass protects! I’m not sure if the L.A.
    branch you can walk to is the same that Hank worked at or not.

    Matt, That is an excellent idea.. Of course it would depend on Brad being motivated enough to want to assist all sentient beings in achieving complete Buddhahood and to forgive us for not living in Beverly Hills or frigging nebraska.

    monkey, It is something that some people postpone, to help others. Brad’s motivation really cannot be questioned. It depends on other factors. Whether he has the time and the resources to do it.. But it is a great idea. Bluewolfnines you-tube idea is even better.

    gniz,
    I get it. And I agree with you in the spirit of everything should be questioned. Brad even says to question everything, even Brad. So I think you are a bit off base this time. I do love your trolling though.
    Keep at it!
