Rising to Defeat Censorship⚡️
An Easter egg from Easter Sunday 2022
Good rising and happy Monday, animals!
On Saturday I found the Easter holiday sneaking up on me, and to be quite honest, I had no pulse on what it meant to me anymore. I grew up in the Christian church, so I’m quite familiar with the stories… but my own connection to the meaning of the day had been lost for years. To the greatest extent possible, I just don’t do the regular programming. I have largely regarded the disharmonic SAMO© Gregorian calendar as a nuisance to me, and going through the motions of calendar programming is not my thing. I’m here to make way for the new, and to bring in the new.
In the hustle and bustle of getting the family ready to see family on Easter Sunday, I made the video in the tweet below. While we still don’t have a ton of traction on either of my algorithmically-suppressed twitter accounts, just having the idea, the painting, and having made this video really helped make my Easter Sunday special : )
I did it in the middle of brushing my teeth! 😆
Is Easter the day we celebrate Jesus Christ defeating censorship?
Murdering a guy on a cross for saying things that upset the consensus view is just a form of censorship, after all, isn’t it?
Censorship is a kind of death. Ask Martin Geddes how his relationship is going with the 250,000 Twitter followers he had before he was censored. Oh, doesn’t exist — Dead. Our online identities are not ‘us’, by they are an aspect of us, and they do get murdered by censorship. They steal away our livelihood. But I think most you already know that by now.
I’m just doing my best to say “GOOD!!” to everything that comes my way, because it is an opportunity.
The censorship of Martin Geddes lead to a relationship with him that I personally value quite a lot. Martin is a friend and a War Hero to me, and I’m proud to have spent the time collaborating with him. Also, I’m still VERY bullish on finding the remaining 11:11 For Change NFT collectors out there to Make Censorship History with : ). Fulfilling the mission of the ‘Million buck book’ is a large step towards helping catalyze a multi-billion dollar industry in support of FREE SPEECH — the foundational element of creating a reality that is nice to live in.
Hopefully we’ve been clear enough that we’re on a mission to make the ‘Million Buck Book’ with this project, and we’re going to do it. It’s just a question of “with who” and “When”. I don’t have any control over these elements… but there are always things I can do to move the ball forward. The when, and the with who elements will be answered as each of the NFTs find their way to an Algorand wallet : )
And there are at least TWO major things I am doing to move the ball forward on Making Censorship History THIS WEEK.
Releasing the first draft of the A+ whitepaper, which will seek to clarify a context to how we see Anml Style fitting in to a broader future of work and entertainment ecosystem. This whitepaper will be separate from our upcoming Anml Style whitepaper — which will outline the specifics of the Anml Style token model and beyond!
I AM now offering to physically back 11:11 NFTs #05—#11 with a completely original painting. I believe there is incredible value in doing this, as it will add powerful physical anchor points for each of the ideas expressed through the NFTs, which are amplifying the contents of Martin’s brilliant work. And OF COURSE I would ❤️❤️❤️ to spend time on canvas with paint — and certainly I think the collectors will appreciate physical art in their presence : ) I already have paintings in the works for #05 and #06, and plan to involve some of my favorite local artists to the mix to collaborate with. For #07—11, the buyers will have the opportunity to weigh-in on the size and scope of the piece. When #11 goes for 358,400 Algo 🔥🔥🔥, I’d say we can go VERY, VERY big, if they buyer would like. Might have to be a museum piece?? With each sale in the 11:11 For Change and Anml Style Collections, the story grows!
Our Operations Chief at Anml DAO, Taylor Hill (@SpeculationHill on twitter) , has scheduled a Twitter spaces discussion for Wed, where we will be discussing the A+ Whitepaper. We would love to have you tune in! (can only do from a mobile device).
If you’ve got the funds and you’d like to make an impact on Making Censorship History, and jump-starting your commissioning of a physical painting with the #05 11:11 NFT — the boldly iconic SAMO American Pravda, and receiving your signed OYMTC book from Martin Geddes, You can do that now for *5600 Algo over on Zestbloom*! I’d like to break the sales record over there as well : )
