Exit Through the Gift Shop, directed by famed street artist Banksy, is up for the Academy Award for Best Documentary.
According to Ambrose Heron in FILMdetail, many new Banksy street art installations are popping up all over Hollywood.
I love Banksy and his art (see my old post). I loved the movie. I love this stunt.
But I strongly feel Josh Fox’s Gasland is a much more important documentary and should win the Oscar. It tells the story of how searching and drilling for natural gas using a destructive method called fracking is polluting the water supply.
Many people are shown setting fire to water coming out of their faucets.
This may soon effect most of the Northeast. Horrifying.
If Gasland wins, the publicity may help stop further fracking.
These great videos celebrate the basic fact that rhythm is everywhere. Life is constantly moving vibrations.

For most of the past 35 years, I’ve lived in Marin County (north of San Francisco) as I thrive on its combination of access to both nature and a big city.
When any graffiti or wall art goes up it does not last long.
Someone recently put up a great image of Miles Davis on a sound wall along a major boulevard and I took a few photos before it was painted over.
It is the mirror image of the cover of one of my favorite Miles albums – Tribute to Jack Johnson. It was created for an early ’70′s documentary that was never widely released about the great boxer. Band members were Miles, John McLaughlin, Billy Cobham, Herbie Hancock, Michael Henderson & Steve Grossman. You can read details about the recording here.
