What the film shows, triumphantly, is that love can unite as much as greed can divide. – Vancouver International Film Festival
The journey began with SCARED SACRED
The spark ignited with FIERCE LIGHT
The time is now to OCCUPY LOVE
THE FIERCE LOVE TRILOGY ARRIVES!
Join acclaimed director Velcrow Ripper (Scared Sacred, Fierce Light) on a journey deep inside the revolution of the heart that is erupting around the planet, as he asks the question, “How could the crisis we are facing become a love story?”
Occupy Love explores the growing realization that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness or meaning.   The old paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is causing economic and ecological collapse. The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound awakening:  millions of people are deciding that enough is enough –  the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life.
The film connects the dots in this era of rapidly evolving social change, featuring captivating insider scenes from the Egyptian Revolution, the Indignado uprising in Spain,  Occupy Wall Street in New York, Indigenous activists at the Alberta Tar Sands, the climate justice movement, and beyond. Woven throughout the action oriented backbone of the film is a deep exploration of public love, and compelling stories of an emerging new paradigm.  It features some of the world’s key visionaries on alternative systems of economics, sustainability, and empathy, including Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Jeremy Rifkin, bell hooks and Charles Eisenstein.  Meet the full cast here.
Occupy Love is  a moving, transformative, heartfelt film, featuring Ripper’s signature stunning visuals and rich soundscapes.  A  powerful cinematic experience that will leave audiences inspired.
DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT: Occupy Love is the movie I have been waiting to make, all my life.  Today’s global awakening is what my earlier films have been anticipating and fostering – a current of potential that was pulsing  and rumbling, just below the surface. Suddenly the volcano has erupted.  As the popular Occupy sign reads, “The Beginning is Here.”

NORML or National Organization of the Reform for Marijuana Laws has long advocated the decriminalization of cannabis for over 40 years. 

Its founder, current leaders and nationwide chapter representatives describe the patchwork of state and municipal laws that allow medical marijuana, while the federal government still regards cannabis as a dangerous narcotic. 

Voters in the US are increasingly recognizing the positive aspects of accepting and controlling medical marijuana in their communities for its medicinal benefits, as well as for its potential to generate needed tax revenue.

Alex Collier is an alias of American citizen Ralph Amigron.[1] As "Collier," he claimed to be a contactee. He alleged that he has been in contact with inhabitants of the Andromeda constellation[2] and purported to have messages to relay from these supposed visitors. "Collier's" Andromedans are of the Nordic aliens type. Collier's statements include an elaborate "history" of the earth from his aliens' point of view. This secret history has elements of many other conspiracy theory and UFOlogy traditions, including Nibiru, Reptilians, grey aliens, colonizations of Earth by multiple extraterrestrial species, Lemuria, and Atlantis. Statements were made by "Collier" that he has been forced into obscurity due to threats made by three "well dressed men" who he believed to be part of a "program".[3] No corroboration has been made of any of these claims, either of being a "contactee" or of having been threatened into silence by any government organization. He has been openly accused by members of the UFOlogy community of having perpetrated a hoax.[4]

The eight-circuit model of consciousness is a theory proposed by Timothy Leary and expanded on by Robert Anton Wilson and Antero Alli. The model describes eight circuits of information (eight "brains") that operate within the human nervous system. Each circuit is concerned with a different sphere of activity.
The lower four, the larval circuits, deal with normal psychology, while the upper four, the stellar circuits, deal with psychic, mystical, enlightened and psychedelic states of mind. These higher circuits are thought to have only recently evolved, with just a fraction of human beings using them. The higher the circuit, the fewer people have activated it. Leary describes the four larval circuits as necessary for surviving and functioning in a terrestrial human society. Leary proposed that the higher four exist primarily for future use by humans who might someday migrate to outer space and live extraterrestrially.
Leary, Alli and Wilson have written about the model in depth and how each circuit operates, both in the lives of individual people and in societies.
The term "circuits" came from the first wave of cybernetics research and development in the United States in the 1970s. (Others[weasel words] have proposed that the term "systems" should be substituted for "circuits" to reflect both a systems theory approach and also the changing anatomy of an entity as it goes through a neurological change).
Each successive circuit represents a more complex phase of evolution. In line with recapitulation theory, the model applies equally to the evolution of an individual organism and the evolution of the whole tree of life. Each neurological circuit provides a new cognitive function (whether or not the organism is aware of the circumstances that led to its activation). more here .

Living for likes makes a teen's social career a whole lot easier, in some respects. Now there's a number letting kids know how popular they are, how well a photo is resonating with their friends, or whether their video stands a chance of vaulting them into the professional world of singing, skateboarding or twerking.
What they may not understand, however, is that this game of likes is not taking place on a level playing field. It was constructed by companies whose multibillion-dollar stock valuations are depending on little more than generating traffic -- more likes, follows and favorites -- and then selling the data that can be gleaned from it.

Taking on the Singularity: Jason Silva and me at the 92Y
 Here's a fascinating discussion I've been meaning to have for a long long time with Jason Silva, about psychedelics, technology, and the "designer reality" I've been writing about since 1988. I talk a bit too much here, but it's probably because I have been storing it up for a while.
What I'm trying to argue is that we don't yet know what's happening right here in this realm - so it might be a little early and foolhardy to be talking about uploading humanity to a new, technologically mediated platform. The opportunity of a digital age - of any new age - is to regain a sense of purpose. Whether it's reevaluating what our economy is for, or reevaluating what technology is for. Or even to consider the value system of "progress" and its own embedded biases.
Anyway, it's a fun talk with a taller, much handsomer version of me from twenty years ago.

Last year, YEKRA brought you Sirius, a film working to disclose the facts about UFOs, extraterrestrial intelligence, and government cover-ups. This year, we're excited to announce the premiere of Mirage Men, which brings you an exclusive look into the U.S. military's "weapons of mass deception."

Meet the Mirage Men: Tasked to carry out a campaign of deception and manipulation against the public, these high-ranking officials have abused the trust of innocent Americans in attempts to conceal government activity. What started as half-truths and targeted disinformation quickly morphed into psychological warfare against truth-seekers and UFOlogy believers.
Since the 1940s, evidence of UFO sightings and alien communication have captivated the modern world. But what if everything you thought you knew was wrong? Dig deeper with MIRAGE MEN, and HELP STOP THE DECEPTION.

The filmmakers need your help to spread this urgent message, because they can't do it alone. With the film available online, and with support from you, they can combat the efforts of those who may be invested in making sure this information doesn't get out.

Mirage Men
How the US government created a myth that took over the world.
ET visitors… crashed UFOs… back-engineered alien technology… the government cover-up of a secret that would change the world as we know it…
These are the core elements of the modern UFO mythology, a story that has captivated farmers, princes and generals for generations, and shows no sign of loosening its grip on the popular imagination.
But what if, instead of covering up the UFO story, elements in the US military had actively encouraged it as part of their Cold War counterintelligence arsenal – manufacturing the myth of the UFO as a powerful weapon of mass deception and the perfect cover for all manner of clandestine technologies and operations.
Now, for the first time, some of those whose actions have directly shaped the UFO mythology, and some of their victims, tell their stories, revealing a surreal disturbing and sometimes tragic sequence of events that is part Manchurian Candidate and part Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
Mirage Men draws viewers into a saucer-shaped hall of mirrors, a shadow-world where every lie contains elements of the truth, and the truth is far stranger than the UFO believers, or their detractors, would have you believe.

Programming The Nation? is a 2011 feature social documentary written, produced and directed by Jeff Warrick. The film revisits the alleged history, research, implementation, and potential effects of subliminal programming in American mass-media, including interviews with Noam Chomsky, Amy Goodman, Dennis Kucinich, Eldon Taylor, Wilson Bryan Key, and other authors and experts in the field of advertising, psychology, music, film, politics, and military weaponry.

Programming the Nation
Media, politics and pop-culture. PROGRAMMING THE NATION? takes an encompassing look at the history of subliminal messaging in America. According to many authorities, since the late 1950s subliminal content has been tested and delivered through all forms of mass-media including Hollywood filmmakers Alfred Hitchcock and William Friedkin. Even our modern military has been accused of these practices in the “war on terror” against soldiers and civilians both abroad and at home. With eye-opening footage, revealng interviews, humorous anecdotes, and an array of visual effects, the film categorically explores the alleged usage of subliminals in advertising, music, film, television, anti-theft devices, political propaganda, military psychological operations, and advanced weapons development. Director Jeff Warrick makes it his personal mission to determine if these manipulative tactics have succeeded in “programming the nation?” Or, if subliminal messaging belongs in the category of what many consider urban legend.
