Mindful Minecrafting: Ep. 6 The Greater Walling of C.C.

In this session we met and planned to get the wall built.  Having collected a significant amount of cobble in the previous session, the next question was did we need stone bricks? There were actually a bunch of next steps.  We used the tactic of checking in before the session, but the goals were pretty clear from the get go.  In a way this was ep.5.2 more than a new mission altogether.

Mindful Minecrafting: Ep. 5 Friendship is the ultimate Craft

“This Song”

Back when I lived in Shanghai, China, I spent as much of my time as possible playing around with my guitar at home and dabbling with recording the songs that came up as a result.  I wrote “THIS SONG” while experiencing life in exile: I couldn’t communicate with most of my friends and family because the internet was terrible and my Chinese language ability was virtually non-existent.

I wrote and then recorded the song first, and just used a handheld audio recorder/camera to make the video.  I think the video document is pretty interesting in itself.  Every wonder what Chinese New Year is like in China?  (Hint: imagine fireworks everywhere day and night for two weeks).
