When Two Worlds Collide

This is a trailer for a film on an indigenous Amazonian leader who is trying to save his world. Unfortunately, this is a story for our entire planet not just the Amazon basin.

"When Two Worlds Collide: A hazardous journey of an Amazonian leader confronting the rules of the globalization game created by developed countries in order to protect corporate interests. With the Rainforest facing peril, this apocalyptic story presents two colliding visions that shape the climate future of our world."

Richard Dawkins: Show Me the Intermediate Fossils

I have selected this video from Richard Dawkings video productions, one of my heroes, to help fight the ignorance of most nonscientists who think that beliefs have anything to do with the nature of science and our world. This one is specifically is for idiots like Rick Perry who use their ignorance to perpetuate their fairytails and myths.

 PostSecret: Confessions on Life, Death, and God

In this video many young people are approached on the street and asked to reveal a secret. It is entertaining hearing and seeing their answers. This is one in a series where the same thing is done in different cities.

Alone in Tokyo

If you have not visited Tokyo this is an excellent glimpse of this mega multifaceted city. It is a great place to visit, and I wish that I will have the time to return there to further explore.

 Miehina the Kyoto Geisha

I so clearly remember, years ago, Yumie and I walking through Gion, the geisha district of Kyoto. It is not uncommon to see geisha walking in full kimono through this part of the city.

Last Minutes With Oden

To date this is the best video that I have added to my site. It is an excellent documentary of a man on the edge of society who must put down his dog Oden. Alert: It is a tearjerker.

Everything is a Remix, Part II

Here is a video that shows that our most popular films are just remixes from older film. Kirby Feruson show the new film along side the old and shows that they are the same. The section on Star Wars is especially good.

Shelter From the Storm

This is an inspiring but sad video of the state of our educational system which reflects our declining society. Here you will see a true teacher, not just a person in the front of a classroom, who is making a difference in the lives of low-income children in LA. Why can't we focus on education and institutions that make our lives better rather than fund a mega-military and support the oil industry?
