Life in Telluride

When im not drifting, im in telluride.

My Photo

I often live a nomadic life style, traveling around and stopping for favorable work and experiences. When I'm not on a vagabond trip, I'm in Telluride, my home.

After getting up late, I went for a walk to pick wild flowers. The realistate guy I work for is out of town for the weekend but was showing a house so I had to set up for that (mow the lawn, set a table with realistate info, pick flowers and put them in a vase), not a bad job.
Then I went up to mountain village with the intention of climbing but I spent most of my time there spotting little kids (because the people supervising them were clueless) and taking photos of them climbing. The company of children is extreamly positive for my mental health.
At about noon i got back into town and ran into some friends on main st with a mission. Their goal was to sit on a main st bench all day long. To accomplish this goal we would have to improuve our envornment. First I dragged a sofa from the free box (30 ft away) to join the benches. Then we waited for a friend to bring a grill. After we collected some funds we sent an errind boy to buy some burgers and hotdogs. Elan nabed a ton of fixins from her dads resturant and we gave away (donation) burgers, hotdogs, and smores. We figured the law would have something to say about us grilling on the side walk but they only smiled as they drove by. The funds from the food kept us griling and driking for 8 hours on main st. What a town.
Oh, and this photo was takin by Chandler (maybe 10), an aspairing photographer. He complimented my camara so much i had to let him play with it.
I have never understood why people get so defensive about the 'american way of life', but im starting to. For the first time I would go to great lengths to defend my way of life, the 'telluride way of life'.

Freedom Building

One block away from my studio is the freedom building. Its a dilapidaded remnent of the mining era that cant be torn down because of historic landmark codes, but wont be rebuilt becasuse of cost. On its boarded up windows and doors are quotes and muirals.
This is an old one but has even more signifigance now that the Center for Media and Democracy came out with its report 'Fake TV News: Widespread and Undisclosed'. In short, corparations pay PR companies to create and issue 'video news releases' or VRN's, for their corparations. The PR companies in turn sponser News stations when they play them on the air. So when you watch FOX's short news report on the motor indistury you wont know that it was bought and paid for by GM. The entities that are to inform us of socal injustice are becoming more and more thoes that produce socal injustice.
The small print at the bottem was drafted and passed by the city. It basicly proclaims that the local govenment has repeled the Patriot Act.
