In'Lakesh ~ I'm Bezi (BAY-zee), Bay Area rapper, multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter, published essayist, aspiring author, filmmaker, activist and aspiring organizer. More about that in a minute. I've been interested in Burningman for a long time, watching it expand, controversies around that expansion, etc. I considered attending but decided against it primarily for logistical reasons. I don't drive, plus I have health conditions that complicate hanging out in very dry and dusty climates. I'm always into meeting cool new peeps, both online and in the real world.
As a potential third political party organizer, I decided to write a research paper for school about the possibility of uniting progressive activists (i.e. Occupy) and 'alternative lifestyle' (not that I'm super-crazy about that term) folks - who seem to me to have complimentary values - in a vanguard sociopolitical meta-movement. Now I'm trying to find people who wouldn't mind responding to a short survey I created to produce statistical data on this question. It's not nearly as boring or uptight as it may sound. Since there is a growing discussion about integrating alternative lifestyle approaches and organized political resistance (i.e. see the website Reality Sandwich), this research project, if successfully carried out, could have broader ramifications than just getting a good grade. So - how about you? Would you like to add your voice to a potentially important scholarly report? Really... it's not boring! I'm one of the most easygoing cats you could ever meet... with an intriguing story around why
