Pro-whaling nations are gaining ground in their effort to break the deadlock and resume slaughtering whales. The IWC indicated it will will continue to explore a plan to allow Japan to carry out '‘commercial whaling' in exchange for reduced hunting for 'scientific research' purposes. Anti-whaling activists did enjoy one victory, when the prime minister of Dominica announced at the "International Ocean Life Symposium" that his government would not support Japan's whale-killing position at the IWC.

Sea Shepherd Conservation Society's boat, Steve Irwin, arrived in Hobart on February 2o 2oo9, after a series of violent clashes with Japanese whalers in the Southern Ocean. The activists located the whaling fleet earlier than they expected and prevented the slaughter of whales for over 27 days. However, upon arrival, Australian Federal Police, responding to Japanese complaints, raided the ship and confiscated the log and video footage of whale-killing.

Popular organic supermarket chain, Whole Foods, has warned Iceland of a complete boycott on Icelandic products if the nation continues commercial whaling.

"Whole Foods Market is a mission-driven company committed to environmental sustainability and stewardship of our planet, with a wide customer base with like-minded values," A.C. Gallo, the assistant president of the chain, said in his statement to the Minister of Fisheries. "We are deeply disturbed by the former Minister of Fisheries and Agriculture’s decision to authorize the hunting of Sei and Minke Whales over the next five years, along with a dramatic increase in Iceland’s whaling quota...Our customer stakeholders are highly educated and environmentally aware, and we believe that if Iceland continues its current stance on whaling that the demand for Icelandic products in our stores will decline forcing us to seek out alternative product sources from other countries."

Whales, Dioramas, and Dramas

New wallpaper for someone's bathroom. ------------->

On brown carpeted floor, MY NEW ROOM, Los Feliz, CA, USA, the WORLD:

I’m now down the middle of the book and I’ve come up with an idea…

When I was in grade school, I was a pretty good student in that I loved new things. Really, all things but math. Math was like a genre of music… or film that I just innately didn’t like… umm, like spaghetti westerns or Romantic Dramadies geared toward a women exclusive audience. So getting into math was like sitting through a crap-tastic movie like the “Jane Austen Book Club” and trying to convince myself that it’s “ok”, and I different world/perspective that would somehow make me a more well rounded person by trying to understand it. Well, I understand that crap is crap… that’s too harsh… maybe that some perspectives are incompatible with one’s intrinsic self, tastes. BUT, I do taste art. Mmm mmm good. When it came ‘round to project time, this boy was all about making shoe box dioramas.
Now I’ve always thought books deserved the kind of publicity that movie and TV shows got. I remembering after reading Herman Hesse’s Narcissus and Goldmund, or Tom Robbin’s Still Life with Woodpecker, I would be designing posters in my head to be displayed on marquees, bus stops, and nowadays on Hulu every 15 minutes during a episode of “Lost” or something. All great works of art deserve pervasive and effective marketing. But alas, books get the shaft like most non visual media, most commercial for books are lame… just the book spinning into frame with a deep throated man synopsizing why it’s a sexy read… usually these books are suspense thrillers. Blech.
The more I read “the Whale” book, the more I get drawn to the action packed read rather than a heavy handed message about ecology. Sure, the elements are there, but they are woven in concert and compliment with some real fun characters. SO yeah, I like this book. Make no mistake, it’s not War and Peace or a Moveable Feast, but it would be tedious and laborious if all books were. If I could place a filmic genre to it, it’d be closer to action/adventure and I really truly love it for this. When it comes to mediums in art, books tend to be the haven for easy, unchecked snobbery. However no genre of story telling has hegemony over the whole art does it? There is a time and place for “Schindler’s List” and “Requiem for a Dream”, for “Dumb and Dumber” and “Die Hard”, for “Love Actually” and “Hedwig and the Angry Inch”. There is never time for: “Roger Dodger”, “Mama Mia!”… and yes, “The Jane Austen Book Club”… even Mr. Darcy would rather watch “Jackass” then that contrived crap fest.
SO: I’m making a diorama-ed, film trailer of this book, this mystery book I found in a brown bag weeks ago, which the authors begrudgingly let me keep till I finished reading, whom now seem supportive of my exploration with it. And why not, I like it. Well, I’m gonna get back to reading it, then work some more on the trailer. So far so good…. I can’t wait to show you all!

SAVE THE WHALES PLEASE! A Movie Between Book Covers

Written by two men who hold Master’s degrees from the University of Southern California film school, Save the Whales Please is a movie between book covers with short scenes that end where the director—Quentin Tarantino?—might say, “Cut.” It’s a political action thriller in which Uma Thurman or Angelina Jolie might star as Jan Everett, the drop-dead gorgeous first lady of the United States and committed environmental activist whose passion is saving whales. Her husband, Carston Everett, is running for reelection for his second term. He’s an independent, and his poll numbers, like the poll numbers of his Democratic and Republican rivals, are all under thirty percent. Everett is young, glamorous, and ambitious. But a Jeb Bartlett he’s not. In fact, he’s surrounded by a chief of staff and advisors that make Dick Cheney and officials of the former administration look like Peter Pan and the Lost Boys. Early on, George Pleasance, Everett’s chief of staff, sees a reflection of himself with the president and another advisor in a mirror in the Oval Office. He “felt a chill. In that moment, they could’ve been the White House of Nixon, Haldeman and Ehrlichman at the height of their power, pre-Watergate.”

It’s an action-adventure story of dirty politics all around the world. The International Whaling Commission (IWC) allows Japan to kill whales “for scientific study,” which really means for public consumption. Pirates slaughter whales and sell them to Japan. When Jan Everett and her team, which includes a videographer and a submarine captain, capture both a notorious pirate and a ship owned by a Japanese family with enormous political influence, Japan threatens the U.S. with a trade war. At the same time, nearly two thousand blue whales have somehow been trapped between the Arctic ice and the U.S. Navy’s sonar experiments. If the whales remain trapped, they’ll all die and the species is likely to become extinct. The White House has offered these whales to Japan to forestall the threatened trade war. Jan Everett and her cohort take over the captured pirate ship and set out to save the whales.

The authors, one of whom is an entertainment lawyer, have created amazingly realistic politics and technology. Well … either they’re making it up, or it’s nonfiction that will inspire both green fanatics and conspiracy theorists to take action. Either way, it’s an exciting read.

The Fisheries Agency of Japan blacked out large sections of its whale stock, contradicting a pledge keep the contracts and sales of the government-funded whaling industry open, transparent and public. Greenpeace has lodged a complaint and anti-whaling activists around the world are pressuring Japan's embassies for full disclosure on whale meat stocks.

On the fence about killing whales? Stomach this!


South Korea announced that it is going to resume commercial whaling and is seeking a permit from the International Whaling Commission. The request will be considered at the IWC's annual meeting in Portugal this June. Activists had feared the deal to allow Japan to commercially slaughter whales along its coast in exchange for reduced hunts in the Antarctic would open the door to more hunting. It now seems only a matter of time before other whaling countries follow suit.

Tuesday, March 17, 2009


The Australian government has permitted the viewing of only a fraction of a video showing Japanese slaughtering whales in the Antarctic this past summer, fueling suspicion of a growing collusion between the two countries. The footage was obtained by a Customs vessel. Even Greens Senator Bob Brown was thwarted from viewing the entire footage under the Freedom of Information laws. The Rudd government has been accused of brokering a secret deal that would allow Japan to harvest more whales along its coast for reduced kills in the Antarctic. Release of the video, activists suspect, would annoy the Japanese and threaten the back room deal.

Monday, March 16, 2009


South Korea has indicated it wants to resume whaling if the IWC permits Japan to increased coastal whaling in exchange for scaling down its Antarctic hunt.

“This would open the floodgates for commercial whaling,” a manager from the Marine Science Program told Reuters in Rome. Korean whaling used to supply Japan with whale meat before the 1986 moratorium, after which Korea received a “scientific” quota of 69 whales but has since complied with the global ban. If South Korea follows through on its threat to resume hunting, particularly threatened would be minke whales which are accidentally caught in fishing nets and then sold as food.

“We should be closing the loopholes that permit whaling rather than creating new loopholes,” said Nicolas Entrup, spokesman for the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society.

Saturday, March 14, 2009


Following an allegation by the Japanese ambassador to Canberra, Takaaki Kojima, that Sea Shepherd violated maritime laws when the anti-whaling group challenged the Japanese whaling fleet, the Australian Federal Police raided Sea Shepherd's vessel Steve Irwin. Australia was exposed recently for secretly trying to broker a deal between the US and Japan--one that would allow Japan to slaughter more whales along its coast for reducing hunting in the Antarctic. But the Australian Federal Police action against Sea Shepherd suggests a growing collusion with Japan and a stunning about face by Australia, until now anti-whaling cause's strongest ally.

Thursday, March 12, 2009


After a three days of meetings in Rome, the International Whaling Commission emerged with a change in direction that could threaten the safety of whales forever. A Small Working Group of member countries is proposing a resumption of commercial whaling. This deal could be approved by the full IWC at its annual meeting on the Portuguese island of Madeira as early this June.

Scientists used sedatives to calm and then free a North Atlantic right whale entangled in rope off Florida's Atlantic Coast — the first time a large whale was ever sedated in the wild, according to the federal fisheries agency.

This whale was first spotted entangled in ropes off Georgia on Jan. 14, the National Marine Fisheries Service said in a statement. Georgia officials took a boat out to remove 560 feet of trailing rope and attach a tracking buoy, and teams made four more attempts over the next six weeks to remove the remaining rope, which appeared to be from commercial fishing operations.

Blue Whales are Big

Tuesday 7:27pm


A confession: when I was a kid... from ages 3-7, I seriously considered the career of being a dolphin trainer.... and it was probably in large part because of Sea World. Which is hard. If not for Sea World my love for the ocean and all these wonderful creatures would never be as potent and vibrant as it is today. I remember after my first visit, complete with miniatures, stuffed animal dolphin, getting splashed by Shamu, I started devouring any and all literature on these massive beauts (pronounced bee-you-ts). Pop-up books, coloring books, interactive ones (those were amazing... they should have pop and interactive-y books for a range of subjects... for adults... from the Sonic Youth story to the dramatic retelling of the Summer of Sam murders to... I dunno, urban legends about tumors in chicken sanwiches at popular fast food chains?) and then on to National Geographic's and text books.
...I remember this one book... I think it was called "ENDANGERED!" and on the cover was a beached Sperm Whale with a bloody front. The cover was so dramatic... seeing an animal of that immensity, so completely out of it's element... powerful in its sheer size and powerless its it's gaped mouth despair. I borrowed that book from the Huntington Beach Public Library probably 8 times, each time hiding it behind boring subject like "The Industrial Revolution: Cotton Gin Power Player" so I can get it again when my mom could take me to the library. It horrified and intrigued me, leaving an indelible burn of images it so dramatically captured in it's pages... I was emboldened by it then, but as a kid, the most I could do was read everything on the ocean, swim in the sea, and cut the 6-pack rings out of the Sunkist we bought from Alpha Beta.

The blue whale is the largest animal on Earth, though humans probably have the largest egos. And the most potential/compassion????

Since its formation at last year's International Whaling Commission meeting, the small working group on the future of the IWC, of which New Zealand is a member, has held a number of closed-door meetings.

In an attempt to find a solution to the polarised deadlock between the pro- and anti-whaling camps, the group's two chairs have suggested a possible compromise deal.

This deal would see Japan hunting endangered whales in its coastal waters in exchange for a "scaling back" of bogus "scientific" hunts in the Southern Ocean whale sanctuary. The commission's intersessional meeting opens in Rome on Monday to discuss such a deal.


Monday, March 9, 2009


There are fears the body that oversees the protection of the world's whale stocks is on the brink of collapse. As members of the International Whaling Commission gather in Rome for a key meeting, its chairman warns that whaling nations are set to qhit countries unless they receive concessions on hunting. Dr Bill Hogarth, appointed by the US to head the organisation, has hinted minke whales should be hunted in the Southern Ocean as part of a compromise. "Dysfunctional," Dr Hogarth said on ABC Radio, a US AM station, and went to add the IWC is "bogged down."

Reload, Shoot. MBinaBBB pt. 2

Wednesday 10:04 pm

I’m trying to write about all that I’ve read. I’m getting pretty into it. The scenes where they talk about how the whalers wound the baby Sperm whales so they come to the surface thus luring the mother to the surface to console/protect them only to be shot with a harpoon grenade is really… grim. The first lady of the United States (Jan) is on a submarine now about to sink the ship… things are getting intense. I don’t wanna write anymore. I gotta read. Plus…. crap, I’m starving, I gotta eat something.

Friday 9:15pm

Here is where I am sore: triceps, quads, forearms, where my pecs meet my rotator, the pad of skin that precedes the thumbs… such a weird place to be sore….
Back track, I got one of those 3 day guest passes at LA Fitness with my buddy Tyler, so I felt I should really take advantage of it, going all three days and spending hours figuring out when I got so out of shape… or really knowing how far out of shape I have become. Ughhh.
I go to look for “the Whale Book” and it is no where to be found! Oh shit. And I had just been exchanging emails back and forth with one of the authors who is worried I’m gonna, I dunno, sell his book on eBay? I mean, I’m reading the galley’s which is stuff that not necessarily the final draft so he is worried it’s gonna get out unfinished somehow. I guess it’s the equivalent of having MP3’s leaked online before the release of an album. Some artist are bummed by it because it may not be the most perfect version or they are not getting money for there hard work. Well, I can safely say that ne’er have I not gone and bought an album I really loved that I got the MP3 of first… there is something about having that archiveable, physical copy. I respect the artist. So with that I offer this to the authors of Save the Whales Please (who I know are reading this): I have already pre-ordered your book online, I will not leak this copy out, but all the same, I’m halfway through the book, I’d really like to finish reading it. You both should be glad being that I have 5 books unfinished books I’m still reading (The Rest is Noise, Women, Tropic of Cancer, Man’s Search for Meaning, Last Leg) and I have put them all aside to read yours. Now if I could only find it…

Sunday 10:30am
Phew. It was in my car.
Really, this was a message from a few hours after my last posting, I just got busy and didn’t have time to login. This book is interesting in that I keep returning to how much it reminds of the show “24.” Maybe its because of the dual intersecting plotlines of the political intrigue in Washington with the action/adventure bit in the field. It’s more action packed and surprisingly not so “bleeding heart-y.” And the pacing, I dig it, Danny Boyle pacing, I can hear a soundtrack going with the book. There’s an idea…. what if there was a reading of the book... someone with good voicing, actors playing each part and a narrator like James Earl Jones… or Obama, and a DJ spinning to match the tone of the paragraph! It would be a hell of a more interesting reading then I’ve seen n the pass. That would be cool. Hmm….
I gotta think about that some more.

Sunday, A little while later…
OK. Here are my top 5 songs to be in the soundtrack if there was ever a dramatic reading or film to be made out of this book. You hear it hear first:

1.) Radiohead – How to Disappear Completely
2.) Sigur Ros – Sven G Englar (sp?)
3.) Dirty Three – Deep Waters
4.) Astreal – Xumisitia
5.) Bjork – Oceania

Tuesday 9:07am

Okay, it’s pretty much settled now. If this were ever made into a film, the guy who plays FBI Director Larry Moss on “24” and Agent Renee Walker should totally play the President and First Lady, respectively. Maybe it’s cause I started reading the book just as I really got into the new season of the show…I dunno, I can’t NOT picture them now when I read it. Does that ever happen to you all? People in your lives are persons you just saw on TV remain permanently imprinted with fictional characters you’re reading about, that casting has already been done in your memory and the players are fixed? I can’t remember, for instance what the Amory Blaine looked like when I was reading F.Scott Fitzgeralds This Side of Paradise but I definitely know that the character Goldmund in Hesse’s Narcissus and Goldmund was a combination of the guy who gave me the book and a another dude we hung out with that met the description by the author. I wonder if we always cast characters while we are reading… Anyways.

Friday 1:15pm
The great about reading a Bukowski novel is that the chapters are so damn short that interest is kept and you can read little slivers, 5 minutes at a time and always have a good stopping point. Same with this book… it’s as if they have been retrofitted for a reduce attention span of the current generation. Works for me, it saves from a lot of rereading to “get” the flow of a conflict or conversation. I like the book in that it’s a good thriller-y read and not too preachy or generic given the opportunity to with the subject matter (saving whales etc…). I wonder how intense conflicts between Green Peace boats and giant whaling ships really do get on the high seas? I mean, really, whats to keep a ship from running over a raft and just say that they didn’t have enough time to maneuver around it? I dunno… I mean people kill each other over money all the time, whats keeping the activist in the little skiffs safe at sea? A noble cause, but not a position I’d want to be in.

Saturday 1:15pm
Oh look, the same time as last. After seeing my friend Rishi spinning yesterday, I wanna DJ again. My friend Ginette in Singapore sent me a mix she had blended and made into a single track. I started messing around with the idea of premixing music on Garage band and playing it on a MP3 player live, and having fake cartoon-y turn tables (ala Michel Gondry) and pretend scratching, swapping, fades per remembering the moments from the pre made mix. Well, that sounds convoluted and started doing it yesterday night. Ummm, yeah, it’s hard.
In other news: I think the threat of legal action has evaporated, the authors have stopped emailing and leaving me message… maybe they realized that a.) I like the book therefore want to keep it, b.) this is a kind of marketing/awareness for the book. Everyone wins. I did tell them that if the book began to suck, I’m gonna write about it. They didn’t seem to take that too well.
Look: I champion the artist. Many people have the luxury of simply being a critic: of food, of music, of things that are hyped, clothing, appearance, mom’s boyfriend, blogs, lifestyles. It’s easy to take apart, sometimes it’s fun. Sometimes it’s affirming of one’s identity, some people love being critical assholes. But I do believe there is a different between discernment and the kind of criticism that is fueled entirely by the ego. Have you ever read that Oscar Wilde piece on criticism as an artform?



Mystery Book in a Brown Bag: A Shot of Fiction, Multiple Entry Wounds

A Busy Saturday 4:37pm
Let me preface. I just got off a shift at the JOB-THAT-WON'T-BE-NAMED, and sat on a chair outside of Robek's Juice debating whether I should have eaten that burrito with the chicken substitute for the applewood smoked bacon and kept the black beans, are have gone with the my usual subs of ham for bacon, spinach for beans... look, it doesn't really matter. So I saw the most haggard looking dude... kinda hobo looking but somehow dignified, professional looking... I dunno... there was just something really striking about him. And you know, there are a finite amount of weirdos, in this town full of freaks and randoms, that deserve a second look.
He was sitting there with a coffee from THE-PLACE-ETC... (funny thing is, I don't remember him ever coming in) and he was glaring my way as if I was wearing a Michael Buble' Live in Concert shirt.
I get weirded out and turn around to finish my phone call with my friend the pole vaulter turn accountant. I'd be getting some money back this year, but damn you Californian I.O.U!!!
By the time I turn back to see if he was there, he was gone. I don' t think shit of it and go looking for my car. It was an early morning when I parked and I swear I can’t remember the ride over. (Last time that happened was New Years Eve, and I got towed for blocking some asshole’s driveway. And yes, he IS an asshole, I don’t care about the logic, towing sucks and I hope someone padlocks his garage or a bird shits on him seconds before he walks into the most important meeting of his life, this is a my belligerence in full bloom.)

I don’t mean it.

I walk for 47 minutes looking and cursing, searching for the busted tail light that has been taped up, listening for the beep of my car alarm, whishing I hadn’t quit smoking. I walk across where “Captain Hobo” was sitting and noticed a brown paper bag. I would have left it alone except for the big black letter written across it:



I open it carefully, fearing dog crap in a bag, barf, bombs, week old bologne (how do you spell that?) and inside was a book:

Save the Whales Please

Saturday 8:15pm

The cover looks cool. It’s like a dramatic shot of a whale breaching amidst sea spray and profundity, a large boat looms in the background and a tiny skiff is approaching it… must be the Green Peace-ers. Which reminds me: I opted to donate a cool $21.00 to Greenpeace because the girl with the clipboard outside of the Border’s was rejected by like 10 people, rudely and despite that she was ridiculously optimistic. I listened to her spiel, asked her a bunch of hard questions, challenged her to produce proof that my credit card was being stolen etc… She was good, extremely well informed, and earnest. And cute. I signed up for $21.00 and ever since that day, every month Green Peace takes 21 bucks out of my account. Sometimes I lament this because I think, “Damnit, I’m poor. The orangutan’s in Borneo can wait till gas prices go down (Summer 2008 joke, remember those days, yeah, suck-sicle dribbling down your clean white sleeves). That I didn’t completely agree with banning whaling. I love whales, I respect life, but I hate outside/Western/extra governmental agencies dictating culture. Even so, I am aware there is a black market, profiteers hide behind the guise of culture to get rich, not every whaler is an Eskimo that has been doing for generations. And those big lugs are endangered. Still gas prices…)
The cover. I should read this…. mystery book. Do you… have you ever found a CD on the ground and picked up and put it on? I mean 9 times outta 10 its terrible hip hop or ska or jammy stuff that is 78 minutes long and reeeeeally deep. And this book, it could be a preachy book about whales. But I’m curious. I’m gonna read ten pages and if it gets all Robert Redford “I Love Earth”-y, I’m putting it in a brown bag and writing:


Saturday 9:01pm

Not bad…

Monday 11:10am

I didn’t get a chance to read “Whale Book” due to work and birthday parties, but I thought about something: I’m gonna Twitter/Facebook status, excerpts from pages from the book. Casue honestly, most peoples Facebook status updates and Tweets are banal/uninspiring/”who-gives-a-shit-y”. Then again… those 25 note things are amazing. I can’t stop reading it. I did one. They should have one where you write 25 things about another person, that way you get a counter balance to all the shit that people want you to know who they are. I’m listening to My Bloody Valentines “Soft as Snow (But Warm Inside) right now. What an amazing mess! Well, maybe my idea is no better, but heck, I’m gonna do it. Every day. It will get me to read. Cause I always say I should read more.

Monday 12:17pm

This book is not what I thought it would be. It read like an action adventure… first lady as some kind of eco crusader the first couple… gosh, I just keep drawing comparisons somewhere between the Obamas and the FBI boss Larry Moss from 24, with the first lady played by that delicious Annie Wersching… HOT. The booked is paced really well, the chapters (if you can call them that) are more like location changes, like Law and Order.

Monday 1:30pm
Grenade tipped harpoons. Jeez… and I only hope it’s fiction. It’s probably not.

Tuesday 2:03pm

I really gotta read more. So I looked up this book online and it turns out there’s a website. I send what I presume the staff or the two authors an email saying, “Yo, I got your book, if you wanna see it again I want a brown tube sock filled grape flavored Big League Chew a roll of quarters (never a bad thing to have in LA).” Really, they were happy the book was recovered as it was the uncorrected galley of it, which for the rest of us non-book industry people, means the almost-ready-for-the-public copy (it comes out April 1st… I think on Amazon?) Anyways, I ask if they need it back right away cause I was really into it. They said it’s alright just not to sell it. I say, or leave it in a bag that says: Good, Read. They say, “What?” I say (see entry #1). They say, “No way…” I say “Quite ‘Way’.” They say, “That’s so odd.” I say, “Hey, I’m an online marketer I can pitch this book for you.”
Conversations happen, I convince that I am (ummm… aren’t we all?) and they say ok, you can hold onto it.

Hey, anything for a “good, read”.

Wednesday 10:04 pm

I’m trying to write about all that I’ve read. I’m getting pretty into it. The scenes where they talk about how the whalers wound the baby Sperm whales so they come to the surface thus luring the mother to the surface to console/protect them only to be shot with a harpoon grenade is really… grim. The first lady of the United States (Jan) is on a submarine now about to sink the ship… things are getting intense. I don’t wanna write anymore. I gotta read. Plus…. crap, I’m starving, I gotta eat something.
