One of surfing’s biggest characters is back at it again with a new edit. Noa Deane is an old soul and this edit is so good, enjoy!
Play Together Stay Together
You’ve heard me say this time and time again right? And..it often takes more than that of course..
This is a great story here about an amazing family and the trials and tribulations in life and choices we make.
Happy Solstice 21′-Now Go Play!
At Mocean365 we celebrate and revel in play! In the modern world it is hard to admit sometimes as we are obsessed with Work. But..is hanging out a desk all day work?(I kid I kid)!..Or is putting an immense amount of physical effort into something playful..actually work? Who the f*ck knows but I do know that this video below is pure gold. Filmed a year ago as Austria went into lockdown so it also pokes a little fun..a little playful jab(see what i did there) at the insanity of it all.
Imagine the work that went into this..and there is a video out on the making of this that I will put below so you can see the effort it takes..to play! Mocean365 will always honor and highlight play and it’s importance to us wild animals. Enjoy this and enjoy your Solstice too and hope you are gearing up for a rocking year. I will offer that life is for living, not hiding and living in fear. If you have dreams, don’t wait because as we have seen, there are no guarantees! Go Get IT!
And this is the outakes..
Human Rights and Civil Liberties?
Ready to tune in to some of the current world events that may not be covered by the cute little mainstream media? As much as I would rather focus on my true mission of outdoor movement adventure and stoke..it would be doing a major disservice to ignore the reality for some of our fellow tribe of bipedal hominids.
On a daily basis, there is major injustice going on globally, especially during the last 2 years. How we hear about this will vary greatly. In the US it depends upon where you get your news. Most people will get their news from sources that are basically a conglomerate of mainstream media.(MSM) Individuals such as the worlds fifth richest person, have a major hand in regards to funding these outlets ranging from MSNBC(which stands for Microsoft NBC), to NPR, NY Times etc. So narratives are formed and these days the terminology of those not informed of these news sources “credibility”are quickly formed. “Right wing’, “Trumpers”, “Conspiracy Theorists” “Anti-Vaxxers”, etc. Opinions and alternative thinking and looking at scientific research outside of the sources cited in MSM also results in blanket statements like “Misinformation” as “Fact-Checkers” hired by the MSM are paid to work remotely and pick apart statements, resulting in warnings and censorship as it is seen as dangerous. Vaccine proponent Dr John Campbell was picked apart for a post and he looked at the occupations and backgrounds of “fact checkers” working for an organization with science in their name. Of all of them…ONE had a science background. The majority of them worked in Media and Communications. “Googling something isn’t deep and real research especially when the entity is owned by the largest private land owner in the US, IMO.
Political and government officials are another line of defense against critical thinking. President Biden has made some statements that are truly amazing in their scathing attack of “his own citizens”. Dr. Anthony Fauxci is being widely criticized even within his own circles for making the bold statement that “I am science” which will be looked back at historically as one of the most “bold” statements in 2021. Even left media darlings like Trevor Noah and Jon Stewart have been criticized by their own for making comments pointing to obvious facts like Big Pharma being driven by financial gains and that the origin of certain viruses is dubious at best.
So…back to Human Rights. And back to comics as well…Where you get your news sources will dictate how and what you see of course as well as your openness of mind to a narrative different of your own.(See above for terminology). One such person that has always been openly leftist in his views has created a Youtube channel that has 4.5 million followers and due to his hilarious use of words has somehow avoided being censored and de-monetized like so many in the last couple years with counter views to the MSM and their corporate led empires. Who am I talking about but Mr Russell Brand..someone I previously did not factor in my life and in fact, I avoided his content of any kind at all cost. Well he was pretty good in Forgetting Sarah Marshall but i digress.
His videos are a mix of humor and news where he reads reports and stories done by various “alternative media” sources and shares them with his audience. During the last 2 years, he without trying has seemingly been swayed through his study and research to be able to openly discuss topics that would not be of interest to media drivel proprietors like CNN.
In the video I will share here(we shall see if it ends up being pulled down), he shares what is going on in Australian Quarantine Camps. Remember not long ago when the very idea of these was seen as a conspiracy theory? My “dearest colleague” often says only partly tongue in cheek ” don’t call me a conspiracy theorist, i prefer prophet”. These camps are growing in size and scope and are now not just for travelers, but AU citizens if they have had a positive test or..exposed to someone who has despite testing negative(often several times).
If this is new to you and you are open to it, scope some of the comments. Many are made by Australian citizens and they are pleading for worldwide intervention. Keep in mind that AU is considered a representative democratic country. People are being fined for driving to exercise or trying to get outdoor exposure. Seems important especially in regards to the scientifically proven importance of Vitamin D levels. There are plenty of videos that he has done of human rights and civil liberties violations globally in other forms as well. In a way, he seems to be using this channel to bring light to issues that aren’t illuminated by other media sources.
Here it is if you are inclined to watch. May I suggest a mind expansion just prior to it? And maybe this will help you make an informed decision when asked about this when it comes to your country.
Beautiful Inspiring Film About The Long Game
This film is more than a mountain bike movie. I have seen the subject over the years many times in various locations from east to west. He has been on a journey, his own and it transcends the endeavor that he mostly uses to see the world..which happens to be mountain biking.
I see it as a spiritual quest and as it has gone on, seems to be more of an existential journey. How long can he go, when will it be time to end it? What role does entropy play? And what will the next voyage be?
Thematically it is something i have been exploring more and more in this crazy fucking world. That is; It is THE ACT, NOT THE OUTCOME. My friend and colleague, acclaimed author and expert Frank Forencich calls the journey, The Long Game. I invite you to watch and see what stirs inside you. Feel free to share with me here or at mocean365 at the gmail. Rock your day!
The Dude does Not Abide
During this global pandemic, we have seen human behavior that moves into the realm of pure and utter insanity. It could best be described as Dystopia which is defined as: “an imagined state or society in which there is great suffering or injustice, typically one that is totalitarian or post-apocalyptic”
This is where we are at. There has been no governance that is driven to unify and heal and offer possible solutions to our global health crisis that was charging along full steam before the “panda”(pandemic). No..the solutions were reactionary and in direct opposition to our biology, physiology, psychology and common sense.
Stay inside with your artificial light, sedentary cells, far away from tribe and if you dare and venture out, put on a mask and stay far away from humans regardless of your approach to health and longevity, age, risk factor etc. Doing so..abiding became a signal of doing good..a virtue signal that says “I care about you”. One could say it had tinges of Ubuntu philosophy at it’s core. That idea was quickly dispersed as people rushed to pick a side, mostly depending upon their choice of media channel and political affiliation.
Research continued to unfold, far beyond the “science” of NPR, CNN, Fox..(you pick..they are all the same)..that was extremely enlightening.
PCR testing that was done far beyond it’s intended threshhold cycle rate. The inventor of the PCR test won a Nobel Peace Prize for his work and had publicly spoken out against Anthony Fauci and his lack of knowledge regarding illnesses. He died suddenly in August 2019
The insanity continued. California closed beaches and made surfing illegal stripping away millions of peoples health protocal. I would venture to say as a professional movement educator that surfing as exercise overall trumps going to the YMCA and doing a linear assembly line workout. Even these gym monkey acts were also soon not allowed and the overall vibe was just stay inside
The research quickly revealed the true health crisis and that is we are afflicted globally with preventable ailments and over 70% of annual Dis-eases are due to chronic and preventable conditions. THIS is true crisis. And these numbers rise each and every year as we move closer and closer to comfort and technology paves the way to the easy life we are all striving for?!
Another crisis we were in the midst of prior was that of stress, anxiety and mental illness and of course in turn, addiction; especially to pharmaceutical opiates. Over 130 people a day die due to opiod related drug overdoses and if you are reading this(still) you know someone that has died of this, struggled with this. It is fact. Babies are being born with withdrawl symptoms.
Who produces these drugs and has settled massive lawsuits and paid out billions in fines for their criminal activities? Well the companies that produce vaccines of course! Companies like Johnson and Johnson. By now unless you live in a cave(which i wouldn’t blame you for) there is a good chance you know of their track record overall. Here is one of their many infractions via the Department of Justice website
Johnson & Johnson to Pay More Than $2.2 Billion to Resolve Criminal and Civil Investigations
Allegations Include Off-label Marketing and Kickbacks to Doctors and Pharmacists
WASHINGTON – Global health care giant Johnson & Johnson (J&J) and its subsidiaries will pay more than $2.2 billion to resolve criminal and civil liability arising from allegations relating to the prescription drugs Risperdal, Invega and Natrecor, including promotion for uses not approved as safe and effective by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and payment of kickbacks to physicians and to the nation’s largest long-term care pharmacy provider. The global resolution is one of the largest health care fraud settlements in U.S. history, including criminal fines and forfeiture totaling $485 million and civil settlements with the federal government and states totaling $1.72 billion.
Another exemplary company is Pfizer.. Here are some of their documented crimes(imagine the still hidden ones).
- Pfizer received the biggest fine in U.S. history as part of a $2.3 Billion plea deal with federal prosecutors for mis-promoting medicines (Bextra, Celebrex) and paying kickbacks to compliant doctors. Pfizer pleaded guilty to mis-branding the painkiller Bextra by promoting the drug for uses for which it was not approved.
- In the 1990s, Pfizer was involved in defective heart valves that lead to the deaths of more than 100 people. Pfizer had deliberately misled regulators about the hazards. The company agreed to pay $10.75 Million to settle justice department charges for misleading regulators.
- Pfizer paid more than $60 Million to settle a lawsuit over Rezulin, a diabetes medication that caused patients to die from acute liver failure.
- In the UK, Pfizer has been fined nearly €90 Million for overcharging the NHS, the National Health Service. Pfizxer charged the taxpayer an additional €48 Million per year for what should have cost €2 million per year.
- Pfizer agreed to pay $430 Million in 2004 to settle criminal charges that it had bribed doctors to prescribe its epilepsy drug Neurontin for indications for which it was not approved.
- In 2011, a jury found Pfizer committed racketeering fraud in its marketing of the drug Neurontin. Pfizer agreed to pay $142.1 Million to settle the charges.
- Pfizer disclosed that it had paid nearly nearly 4,500 doctors and other medical professionals some $20 Million for speaking on Pfizer’s behalf.
- In 2012, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission announced that it had reached a $45 Million settlement with Pfizer to resolve charges that its subsidiaries had bribed overseas doctors and other healthcare professionals to increase foreign sales.
- Pfizer was sued in a U.S. federal court for using Nigerian children as human guinea pigs, without the childrens’ parents’ consent. Pfizer paid $75 Million to settle in Nigerian court for using an experimental antibiotic, Trovan, on the children. The company paid an additional undisclosed amount in the U.S. to settle charges here. Pfizer had violated international law, including the Nuremberg Convention established after WWII, due to Nazi experiments on unwilling prisoners.
- Amid widespread criticism of gouging poor countries for drugs, Pfizer pledged to give $50 million for an AIDS drug to South Africa. Later, however, Pfizer failed to honor that promise.
Surely Moderna is better though right? Read below…
“An anti-corruption watchdog group is urging the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to investigate top executives at Moderna, the biotech firm developing a promising coronavirus vaccine, for allegedly manipulating the stock market. “”
“This misconduct was particularly egregious because it involved not only financial fraud and manipulation of the financial markets, but also because it exploited widespread fears surrounding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic,” wrote Kyle Herrig, who heads Accountable.US, in a letter to the SEC. “I strongly urge the SEC to investigate these matters.”
The group’s concerns center on insider trading activity at Moderna after the company last month announced positive results in Phase 1 trials of its coronavirus vaccine. The news pushed up the company’s stock price 30% to an all-time high of $87. In the days following the announcement, Moderna’s CEO, other executives and funds controlled by the chairman of its board sold about $90 million worth of company shares. “
As we moved along into the year, we saw censorship happening at levels that would be considered normal in China or Cuba, but certainly not here eh? Joe Rogan himself called an emergency podcast for the first time in the history of his show to bring the insanity to light. Much of this was due to the research on the use of Ivermectin as a possible treatment for Covid 19. Rogan had on his show two guests. Dr. Pierre Kory an ICU and lung specialist who is an expert on the use of the drug ivermectin to treat COVID-19. and Bret Weinstein an evolutionary biologist, visiting fellow at Princeton, host of the DarkHorse podcast, and co-author (with his wife, Heather Heying) of the forthcoming “A Hunter-Gatherer’s Guide to the 21st Century.” What they unveiled was known to many of us who have been diving far beyond NPR but it was a little glimpse for the mainstream into how this whole at was crossing over into our freedoms. Here is a link
I could go on and on and on and it is not a conspiracy. Early on in this, it was considered a conspiracy to talk about vaccine passports and many posts and videos were pulled down implying this could happen. Same with the lab leak “theory”, which is now pretty widely accepted even amongst hyper mainstream liberal comedians like John Stewart seen here.
It is actually amazing that this hasn’t been censored by the king of censorship..the Google/Gates empire. Yet i digress.
We are now being forced to take vaccinations so we can return to normal and corporations can fully sell us on all fronts. We must fill stadiums and chain restaurants and continue to be led by idiots like Trump or Biden right? No.
There is a quest to return to normal. Normal is what got us here in the first place. If our priorities were more in line with true health and longevity vs comfort and consumption, maybe we could realize that normal is NOT what we need.
We need to renew our approach to our humanity and it starts with our bodies and our health. An embodied cognition highlighted in “New Old Way” by Frank Forencich. Embodied cognition means the nature of the human mind is largely determined by the form of the human body- that ideas, thoughts, concepts, categories and all other aspects of the mind are shaped by the body.
Keep that concept close as we move forward time wise and remember this time, the Dude does NOT Abide.
