What in Anml hell is going on here?
As the escalation of WW3 continues to accelerates us towards exponential change, it's time to tune in deeply to our Anml Style : )
How are you doing as WW3 continues to accelerate us towards more exponential change??
Somehow it’s pushing me back into ‘writing mode’. ❤️ There’s just so much to integrate now : )
I love to write, and I’m going to let it out and give it my best shot at going full Anml Style with you all this year and beyond.
Still, what the hell does that mean??
We’re going to explore together over a great period of time everything that going ‘Anml Style’ entails — But we have some simple places to start for now.
For whatever differences we may have, we all have an Animal meat-suit with some built-in natures about it. And then there is the programming we’ve all been subject to for several millenniums now. There’s a lot of common ground there that I think we can connect on.
Extending beyond that, Animal Style is about connectedness with the earth. I love walking barefoot through creeks and up mountains. I need that connection to the earth to feel alive and well. Drinking clean creek water is another favorite animal style' activity of mine ; )
But wait, there’s more! Animal Style is also about tapping deeply into your own inner Sol Animal. And many people are now attempting to do that with the “blue chip” NFT projects. Particularly profile picture (pfp) NFTs. In fact, there is hardly a bigger flex on earth today than putting up a profile picture on Twitter that you paid A LOT of cryptocurrency for. I certainly look forward to giving more people that opportunity! If we have it my way, we’ll be redefining what comprises a “blue chip” NFT project ; )
In terms of my own Animal Style, I’ve felt a connection to dragon energy (ex. THOR⚡️🔨) 😆. It was quite a few years ago now that I discovered I had some dragon blood in me, which I learned to be the cause of my ‘Dragon Dreams’— the original working title of a novel I’m now calling “Animal Style: Oink’d 2024”. The story took on a life extending far beyond dragons, and I didn’t want my own dragon blood to dominate the title! Ultimately, this is a story about ALL ANIMALS. And over the years, I found the pigs wanted to have a more dominant role, particularly in the beginning of the story when a tyrannical pig named Swine Daver destroys the planet that birthed him, setting out with a few thousand other inoculated swine to cancel life on every planet man has set foot.
Can you tell I’ve decided to look at the current apocalypse as gas on the flames of my inspiration, rather than an obstacle??? ⛽️⛽️⛽️⚡️⚡️⚡️🔥🔥🔥.
So, in addition to the above-mentioned meanings, Anml Style is on it’s way to being a limited first edition hardcover book, and perhaps even a trilogy or two : ) My goal is to be shipping hardcovers to you for Christmas : ) I made a video for you below, where I also discuss the story’s Orwellian Roots ; )
What happens when the pigs from Orwell’s playful ‘Animal Farm’ converge with his worst dystopian nightmare in ‘1984’ — and then get blended into the cultural memes running rampant throughout the apocalypse has engulfed every moment this side of 2020?? Oh yeah, and we’re birthing the characters and pioneering a new business model through NFTs of course! Did I mention the Moonly 🌝 Anml Yield yet?
You can be forgiven for having a few questions .😆⚡️ (please do ask them!)
As Martin Geddes and I discussed in our inaugural Anml Style video discussion — The “Disney model” doesn’t work for us. Not by a long shot.
We see ‘the way’ of intellectual property dynamics changing rapidly from this point onwards. And we see an opportunity for artists to have a more direct and mutually beneficial relationship with their biggest fans and customers in a truly decentralized ‘Web 3’. And this is how we ‘Make Censorship History’. And while that may sound a bit lofty — we really don’t have any choice. We have to DAO it. And DAOing it going to be pretty damn exciting, if you ask me : ) ⚡️⚡️⚡️
If you’re on board to help pioneer new creative business models where creators can be rewarded without a disgusting eyeball at the top of our slave pyramid, canceling the bravest creators and warping minds over at Disney — I’d certainly appreciate your support!
The first 100 Limited Edition Signed Anml Style: Oink’d 2024 Hardcovers will go to the supporters who pocket editions of the Anml 004 NFT.
I’ve been experimenting with some different ways to do digital publishing… and it’s looking like I might just be releasing them in this Substack — but I’ll be looking to release the book chapter by chapter, and sourcing your feedback with digital releases on the road to printing the hardcover.
Thank you for reading this far! 🙏🥂
