A moment in time in Venice, California:

Mostly Coherent Confessions of a Dharma Brat – Waylon in Venice CA from Alex King & Mito Media.


I’m just back from a week in LA for Natural Products Expo West, which was amazing and exhausting, and then four or five days in LA for meetings, hangings with the best and the greenest. A good week that hopefully will help elephant begin to attain a solid financial footing to go with our rapidly exploding presence in social media (facebook, twitter mostly), my Walk the Talk Show, and our traffic (now at 172,000 unique visitors/month according to Google Analytics).

The last night I had linner with a friend, then met a yoga teacher for a drink…then met my longtime buddy and videographer Alex King at The Other Room on Abbot Kinney, Venice’s main drag. We got some din at the famous (and deservedly so) institution, AK Pizza, then a drink at Gjelina, then ice cream at Nice Cream, I think it’s called, where Alex whipped out his gajillion doller new toy camera and filmed this, off the cuff. When he turned the camera off, we kept talking. Something about the reunion brought a lot into focus, for me. Alex worked with elephant when he had a big staff, a magazine, office. When I had a car, a home. Now, my staff has dispersed across the country, we’re on online vehicle, and I’m experiencing both freedom and success and, probably, the hardest year of my life, financially at least. Having grown up poor with my ma, I’m ready to move on. I’m ready to begin to succeed on every front—including traveling and being in love and all of it.

  7. Does he think that the reported bitterness between the Milibands risks adversely affecting Labour? “Yes. Cheap Puma Trainers We’ve got to really think about the party. There was a Labour family argument in Blair/Brown that got played out in a single family [by] David/Ed .. I think Ed has got great energy and intuition. He hasn’t yet fully grasped how good he is. I always give people a year to sort out any trauma. I think Ed is now beginning to find his energy and move on.”
