Devin Queen gives the clarinet concerto of the season. Now we are spoiled, clarinets have never sounded so clarinety. Patty Smith would be jealous.

Richard O'Connell, associate director of production at ITVS, tells us why he believes that ITVS is important. Richard Saiz, Director of Photography. Recorded at ITVS in San Francisco on May 31, 2006.
Go to to join the conversation.

This was an experiment that came out of a presentation I gave to some of the ITVS production staff. I was on the final day of a 10 day juice fast and was a bit delirious, especially when my computer froze at the beginning of the presentation with all of my applications and videos open and ready to present. Here are the links of sites that I showed or we discussed:

Excerpt of full 11 minute video at:
Cindy Sheehan (mother of a soldier slain in Iraq), Jim Massey (ex-Marine recruiter) and others reveal the true impact of No Child Left Behind's military recruitment in our high schools. With no end in sight to the increasingly lethal American occupation in Iraq, this is the single-most important film for concerned parents and citizens to see. Watch the 11-minute film and then take action to "opt our kids out" at Created by Mainstreet Moms and Working Assets.

Day 8 of our 10 day juice fast

Julie Queen and I are trying to get healthy. We cut out coffee and wine about a month ago, and are now at day 8 of a 10 day juice fast.
It's been really amazing not to eat food for awhile. So much energy is taken up with preparing food, cleaning up, driving to get it, etc.
At day 4 my sinuses cleared up. Day 6 people commented that my eyes seemed really bright.
Day 7 my sense of smell became almost supernatural. I walked by a salad bar and could differentiate between all of the smells. I never experienced that before, and with chronic sinus problems have a had a lousy sense of smell my entire life.
At this point in the fast everything sort of sparkles, it's way fun.

We had done 2-3 day fasts in the past, this is a marathon in comparison.

People ask if we're hungry. Not really, once a day or 2 goes by, you get very used to it.

We cheated and had Lisa and Abbot Paul of Juicey Lucy's make the juices for us, 5-16 ounce jars a day full of organic fruit and veggie concentrated goodness. It's a bit pricey, but compared to eating out, very cheap. And extremely cheap when you factor in the expense of the alternative, colon cancer or obesity!
