Here is a next example of Psychedelic Dancing for Exercise this time featuring surf music. Surf is often instrumental allowing more imagination as you listen. It has groove, extended guitar and drum solos, and in this case, wicked feedback! Feedback is a quest for eternity and is great for psychedelic inspiration.

This Mash of three mixes discusses where groove comes from and how you can get tribal! The music is from the Mermen and includes one of the greatest feedback songs called Honeybomb. I have another version of the song too on CD that rocks! The one you are hearing here is live and is certainly good enough.

I hope you are getting on the tunes and trying out some of this psychedelic dancing for exercise! Spread the word peaceful people!

This is the first of many CAR VLOGS which may move over to a site of their own. In general, it means pointing the camera at yourself as you drive and vlogging. It could mean pointing the camera out the window but that is generally discouraged as you tend to want to look where you are pointing and that is unsafe as you are driving.

Safety is an issue and some aspects are discussed in this vlog – click above to view.

As often as possible we will include background shots from the actual drive. Shooting pictures is much easier as it just takes a glance if that but if you are not the multitasking type then please do not do this from the driver seat. The pictures in this vlog posting are primarily of the Dundas and Hamilton portion of the journey to Oakville where I teach. The trip is about 40 minutes with very little traffic as I take the 407 toll road past the rush hour traffic. This will be where most of my car vlogging will come from as there is a backvlog of about 100 of these videos.

SUBJECT OF THIS CAR VLOG
This current and first published car vlog talks about car vlogging referred to here as car casting. It summarizes some previous ideas and works through some live ideas. It is a little scattered as discovery is taking place. It is not the most creative of sessions but it is a decent introduction to car vlogging or car casting.

META is a sci-fi story based in the times of the Dan Zen game, Save Earth.

A premise has been written in the form of a prophetic poem. The verses will be put into a Zen Mix and will be posted here over the next while.

We would like to encourage this type of story telling using Zen Mix. And indeed, if anyone would like to make a mix of any of the META episodes, please feel free to post the link to the mix in the comments of the episode post. It is so easy to do that we started our first one with an eight-year old daughter! Click above…

Show us that you are destined to be a star!

  1. Record yourself with a digital camera saying the poem below
  2. Upload this video to vimeo.com
  3. Take a picture for the background and post it on flickr.com
  4. Go to zenmix.com to mix the two and then post the link here

You can use our background – just look beneath any mix to find out what video or background url was used and copy it into your own mix – remember copyright though. You are free to use our backgrounds for META. In this case we used an upcoming motion graphics tool called Zen Pan to make a background.

Here is the META verse…

It will come to be that a new organization called the Free Nations will play watchdog to the United Nations and in 2020 after years of policy battle, the two will combine to form the World Government.

Even if you do not create a mix for META, you are welcome to leave your comments! In the future, we will tell further mysteries from Moustache Mysteries.

All the best,

Dan Zen

For years, mad inventor Dan Zen has been psychedelic and digging psychedelic dancing. Now after trying Thai Chi and Yoga and Belly Dancing, he has come to realize that psychedelic dancing is a fantastic free form exercise.

“We are not limited to the structure and monotony of Thai Chi” explains Dan Zen, “nor even the structured story telling of Indian Dances or the Hula. Psychedelic dancing is the story of energy – of freedom and groove!” This makes the dance ideal for exercise as you can go from simple sway to frantic flip outs!

This vlog – click the vlog link above will introduce you to some of the concepts of psychedelic dancing as exercise and we’ll be posting ongoing samples with different psychedelic songs as we go. The feature song in this vlog is Neu’s Hallogallo – some early 70’s German electric mood psychedelia – introduced to me by two people at once – Gaven Dianda and Sam Lades.

Peace groovy people!
