Kazoo is a 16-year-old Double Yellow Headed Amazon parrot. She talks. We don’t always know what she’s saying exactly, but we always know what she means because she’s remarkably expressive.
Take a look at this video and see if you can tell what she’s yelling at the 7-second, 27-second and 37-second marks. This is something she yells at least a few times a week. Maybe it’s French? (She spent her first 13 years in a Francophone household.)

It gets crazy loud in here when I play (Read more…)

I have yet to see anything that so sublimely and elegantly shows how mankind and nature can cohabit this planet, yet we continue to lay a massive pounding on the earth, oblivious to the wreckage, as we struggle blindly through the fog of our own heads and hearts.

“Adrift” is a love letter to the fog of the San Francisco Bay Area. I chased it for over two years to capture the magical interaction (Read more…)

In its deserts, forests, mountain ranges and on the plains, a huge population of modern nomads pursues its version of the American dream – to live free from the world of careers, mortgages and the white picket fence.
When British writer Richard Grant moved to the USA more than 20 years ago it wasn’t just a change of country. He soon found himself in a world of travelers and the culture (Read more…)

It seems to be commonplace today that police actions are filmed. Often they appear on blogs and You Tube. Are you allowed to do that?
Is it interfering, impeding or unlawful to do so?
Do the police have the right to seize your camera, look at what you took or tell you to erase it?
The Ottawa Citizen has a very good editorial on the practice of police intimidation of citizens who use their cellphone cameras and other devices to record the police.
Here’s a summary of what Canadians should know about this.
