  • Where does Social Justice and New Age Play meet?
    by Took Edalow on January 12, 2018 at 6:29 pm

    Michelle Joni Lapidos and me (Took Edalow) discuss if social justice and new age play/art meet. Starting this year off right! Can we get the the "open" people on the side of the "revolutionary people" or are we all just full of shit? And if we are full of shit can we grow beautiful flowers from it. We talk about Took's frustration with the way "Bushwick new age" culture deals with abusive people and how most communities deal with such things in general. First time premiere of "Permanent Magical Culture" by Michelle Joni.
