‘YouTube Night’ Recap

(Most of) The Wednesday night YouTube crew

Thank you to everyone who came out Wednesday night, Amanda, Steve, Mary, John, Andy, Laine, Kendrick, Connor, Katelyn, Nicole, the nice girl who will have to remain nameless since I never properly                                                                                   introduced myself, Michael, Brooke, Chris, and Jack. I hope you all enjoyed the shows. I would also like to show some appreciation to Gray Owl Coffee on E. Gray St. in Norman, for allowing us to use their patio, electricity, and most necessarily, their wifi. We couldn’t have done it with out you all. For those of you who may not have been able to come, we watched two episodes from a series created by Bill Mollison. The series is called GLOBAL GARDENER and it’s about the variability in application for permaculture-based principles in the design, not just of gardens, but human settlements, as well. Here are the links:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HD2CBLmkw6c&feature=plcp (Dry Lands) and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HF9IgvjCv84&feature=plcp (urban).

Bill Mollison

Bill Mollison is the founder of permaculture and a hero of mine. I’ve watched these videos numerous times and still find them to be inspirational and informative. I hope you enjoy them as well.

Next Wednesday, September 12th (weather permitting) the theme will be SUBURBIA, and we’ll show a video 20 minute talk from James Howard Kunstler, (the author of THE LONG EMERGENCY, and most recently TOO MUCH MAGIC), then a 50 minute documentary called THE END OF SUBURBIA. The quality of the YouTube upload isn’t great but it’s should be adequate. We hope to see you there. :-)

    “The quality of the YouTube upload isn’t great but it’s should be adequate.”
    Actually, the quality of a YouTube download is not adequate. We do not charge a screening fee for showing The End of Suburbia publicly, however we do appreciate that the film is screened from a DVD.


    Can I show The End of Suburbia publicly?

    Yes, absolutely! You can show documentary to as many people, as many times as you wish, as long as it is not for profit and the DVD or VHS is an original (not a downloaded or pirated copy). There are no licensing fees or screening contracts involved, if the event is not for profit. You are welcome to charge a modest admission to cover costs or fundraise for a non-profit group. If you do happen to collect a substantial amount and just can’t decide what to do with it, we suggest donating some to the Post Carbon Institute. They’re doing an admirable job of creating awareness about oil depletion.
