A Sheltered Sea Winner for best Ocean Conservation film at the 2009 Blue Ocean Film Festival, “A Sheltered Sea” illuminates the pioneering conservation action of the marine life protection act as it creates the first statewide network of marine protected areas in the United States. Directed by Bill Bayne and Produced by The Baum Foundation, “A Sheltered Sea” was the first film of its kind in Northern California, to tell the Marine Life Protection Act story as it was unfolding. As a forward looking response to long-term overfishing and new pressures from pollution and climate change, the Marine Life Protection Act Initiative brought together diverse stakeholders—fishermen, conservationists, government, divers, scientists, and ocean-loving citizens—in a sometimes explosive process to set aside marine refuges akin to our country’s national parks. Livelihoods, the future of marine species, and coastal access hung in the balance, awaiting the outcome. The film explains why everyone holds a genuine stake[...]

Paul and Kathy seem to hit it off rather well but, during a meteor storm, a meteorite fragment strikes Paul, burying itself deep in his skull, which has the unpleasant side-effect of causing Paul to mutate into a giant reptilian monster at night and go on murderous rampages. It turns out that this sort of thing has happened before, when Professor Salina rediscovers ancient Native American paintings detailing a similar event many centuries ago. Kathy, however, still loves Paul, and tries to save him.”-IMDB. Sponsored by Savage Henry Magazine, Scrap Humboldt, Phantom Wave Records, Daisy Drygoods, Vintage[...]

A universal life force. 2. A cosmic unit of energy, the creative force in nature. 3. A soul music juggernaut with 8 heads and one heart. Now and always, Orgōne delivers dirty, organic, California soul with heart; music that grabs you by the collar, pulls you to your feet and shoves you wantingly onto the dance floor. It all started with two kids from the San Fernando Valley, whose shared affinity for gritty soul records of the 60s and 70s collided with the colorful music cultures brewing in Los Angeles during the late 90s. That friendship sparked a movement, and Orgōne has been delivering nothing but gold to the funk faithful ever since. “We intend our music to have an inhibition-canceling effect,” founding guitarist Sergio Rios explains. “It speaks to those who may have wallflower tendencies encouraging everyone to own the freakiness that lives inside them, and enjoy the spotlight for a little while. Sometimes it takes a nudge to let go and get on the dance floor. And[...]
