My friend just put up the interviews on YouTube that I filmed while in Denver, I figured today was the best day to post these.


My interest in Alex Jones was first piqued in January of 2001 (pre-9/11) when I saw his cameo in Richard Linklater‘s innovative film Waking Life:

Iraq Veterans Against the War Concert & March in Denver from Nikolas Schiller on Vimeo.
Click here to watch on YouTube

The Iraq Veterans Against the War hosted a free concert at the Denver Coliseum with The Coup, Flobots, and Rage Against the Machine. After the sold out show, about 4,000 people took part in a 4 mile march to downtown Denver to give the presidential candidate Barack Obama Campaign a list of demands regarding the war the in Iraq and the treatment of veterans.

This sequential video starts at the Denver Coliseum with clips of the Flobots and Rage Against The Machine, then follows the demonstrators to downtown Denver, and finishes on the Denver police marching like soldiers & a polar bear at Ralph Nader’s “Open The Debates” rally at the University of Denver Magness Arena.

Columbine Quilt

: rendered at 18,000 X 12,000 :

Today is the 8 year anniversary of the tragedy at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado. With what happened this week at Virginia Tech I felt that this map would be a way to honor those who passed away.

To this day I still remember sitting in math class watching it all unfold on TV in 1999. I remember seeing a friend of mine, who’s name I cannot recall, being interviewed on television. I had 10 friends from summer camp who were attending Columbine, but thankfully none were hurt.

Also related, but created unintentionally, are my two maps of Oklahoma City, where I inadvertently placed the Oklahoma City Memorial at the center of the maps.
