Are You Here

We are very disappointed that PBS became a political target in the Presidential debate last night. Governor Romney does not understand the value the American people place on public broadcasting and the outstanding return on investment the system delivers to our nation. We think it is important to set the record straight and let the facts speak for themselves.

The federal investment in public broadcasting equals about one one-hundredth of one percent of the federal budget. Elimination of funding would have virtually no impact on the nation’s debt. Yet the loss to the American public would be devastating.

As a stated supporter of education, Governor Romney should be a champion of public broadcasting, yet he is willing to wipe out services that reach the vast majority of Americans, including underserved audiences, such as children who cannot attend preschool and citizens living in rural areas.

For more than 40 years Big Bird, has embodied the public broadcasting mission – harnessing the power of media for the good of every citizen, regardless of where they live or their ability to pay. Our system serves as a universally accessible resource for education, history, science, arts and civil discourse.

Each day, the American public receives an enduring and daily return on investment that is heard, seen, read and experienced in public media broadcasts, apps, podcasts and online – all for the cost of about $1.35 per person per year.

Because wine makes everything better.

They're back!

Tall wine straws for drinking from the bottle? Allow me to tip my imaginary hat off to you.

Watch Hi Custodian, a 20-minute short film by Dirty Projectors, somewhat of a Jodorowsky-saga fever dream inspired by Kanye West’s Runaway and Prince’s Purple Rain.

Well that was fun. Artsy or ironic, or both, wholly entertaining.

Endings and Beginnings

Tonight might be the last night of my old life. For someone who loves being in control of the circumstances that surround me, it would appear that I’ve lost the reins. It’s frightening in a way completely unfamiliar. The crossroads lie ahead and everything is unknown. Whichever path I take now, there is no return. Nothing will ever be the same. Then nothing ever is. If our very lives are a proof for possibility in this existence, then I hope that I can find my way again.
