Feb 28 – Sleep In Public Day

28 Feb

Not the easiest thing to do especially in cold cold Boston but it had to be done. Eli didnt like it as you can see from the video.

I did it once in Barcelona for real. Not by choice. I was legitimately homeless. No money for a hostel so I slept on a beach and I’ve never been so humbled in my life. Bottom of the barrel. I literally came minutes close to getting jumped and killed but I made it.

I don’t really sympathize too much with homeless people. I struggled a lot for what I have. I came from nothing and worked since I was 15 to get to where I’m at so I can’t really understand how someone comes to the point where they live on the street instead of fighting for their life. Instead of working at a McDonald’s. But one thing I know for sure is that no one should be sleeping on the street. I rather my tax dollars go to providing poor helpless people with shelter than maintaining people on death row. In fact I rather none of my money go to prisons.

But the other thing that reminds me of this day is the general reflection on the homeless. I think that because I live here but when Iived in Spain people go take naps at parks and on benches all the time. It’s almost like sleep is villanized here. I vouch for bringing back nap time. Who the hell said we don’t need that after kindergarten should maybe be homeless b

Feb 10 – Umbrella Day

10 Feb

Today is Umbrella Day and it’s also the Grammys so here is my tribute to the greatest video ever of an umbrella in use.

 

I grew up watching this musical. It’s probably the only musical I’ve ever loved. I tried to watch Les Miserables and was miserable. Can’t pretend I’m the first to use that line.  Here’s the original. Not too shabby huh?

Jan 31 – Backwards Day

31 Jan

For this day I could have done a lot of things. But wearing my clothes backwards wasn’t enough to I decided to go back in time to 1776.

If you want to celebrate, you can do a tribute to the king of walking backwards, Michael Jackson, on the eternalmoonwalk.comScreen Shot 2013-01-31 at 4.09.47 PM

Or maybe you try and play a record backwards to discover the hidden message. This is my favorite one. Pink Floyd poked fun of the whole phenomenon and ridiculous accusations that there were satanic messages in records by hiding a tongue-in-cheek version of their own on the song “Empty Spaces.” Start playing at :22 and listen carefully for “congratulations you have discovered the secret message”
