Thank you. We will have a look.
Shoot! So all they really have right now is a Facebook, but at the last collective meeting we were talking about this issue and are looking to find a better way to inform people about things. Bridgetown collective meetings are every other Monday and Wednesday. So not today 4/14 but next monday 4/21 there is a meeting for mostly booking and then 4/23 Wednesday there will be a committee meeting where most other issues are addressed. Come on out.
Someone else posted this properly. Thanks.
I made a thing and it’s just me on banjo. I wrote this song a little while ago while I was thinking about how I feel about work, industry, america, and over all what these things do to the mental health of people, the environment we love in, and how when exhausted from being over worked we are considered lazy when we just can’t do it anymore. I’ve had personal experience with pressure and being overworked while trying to improve my financial situation after my daughter was born. I kept thinking that eventually it would get better, working 10, 12, even up to 20 hour days. They never let up. It’s like feeding the bears. Once they get a taste it never ends. I have my own issues with working and how I feel my work enables these companies to destroy the planet we live on. But I cannot beat myself up too much. I cannot accept all the blame or even a fraction of it. I must work to live, but I also must fight for change. I understand that not everyone is always in a position to be active in these struggles, and I certainly don’t expect them to. As a father I know that I am not willing to put myself at risk in certain ways. I also know some people can not afford to necessarily lose their jobs over this. I am not saying that I know what to do. I just felt this way and wrote this song. This is roughly about sadness and anger in the face of capitalism.
Utah Phillips once said, “The earth is not dying. It is being killed, and the people killing it have names and addresses.”
I’ll share it again for you night time folks. It’s a new song.
