GeneralComposting (of course). Trash sculpture. Guerilla recycling. Trying to figure out how decaying matter can morph into rich food. We also love performing, laughing, listening and playing music, contemplating many things, or just one thing for a long period of time. We especially like to contemplate where exactly "away" is.........which reminds me, we love fieldtrips in many varied flavors, like when we went to the dump to see where our trash goes (we were rejected!) -- for that story you could read Mary's "Love Letter to the Dump" in our blog.
MusicCheck out our radio show on WDBX.ORG every Monday from 10am-12pm (central time). You can tune in via live webstream.
We also sing (imagine that). So far we have a a funky original called "Compost This" a folky but funny song called "Throw Away." We've also taken to remaking some classics like "Favorite Things" and the "Oompah Loompah" song.
We are currently working on a rendition of "Rocket Man" but we are calling it "Rocket Milk" because evidently components of rocket fuel have been showing up in breast milk. I know, funny, right?
We will be performing a Musical Review in San Diego CA in November. Details to come as it gets closer.
La la la la la...decomposition...la la la la la...everybody has to...eventually!
Rumi captured it best...."We have fallen into a place where everything is music."
MoviesWe think making movies these days has to be the best thing in the world to be doing - besides performance art activism of course---- hey wait ----
Watch for videos - we're working on it!
Booksdeep economy, by bill mckibben, anything by paul hawken and barbara kingsolver, books by amy sedaris & jon stewart, mary douglas's stuff is great, mary daly's gyn/ecology, starhawk is good, carol merchant, ariel gore, al gore, and of course a little theory: derrida, burke, brecht and baudrillard
Really there are too many good books to put down in one place. We review books on our radio show once or twice a month and when we do we will post a bulletin here as well as put them on our website.
And people who compost - both literally and metaphorically!

About me:.. ..........
Welcome to the Composting Revolution.
Glenda Greenhouse and Mary Mercury have been "turning the pile" since 2005 with an edgy blend of performance art and comedy with a purpose.
The Composters think a lot of problems in the world could be solved with a little compostng action. I mean if it works for banana peels and cucumber slices then why not other things (like the war machine or global warming). Sure it takes a little turning and some dedication but it's worth it!
Composting is transformation - literally - it turns death and decay into rich, fertile, hope-filled, sustenance.
There's a revolution in every pile!
So come on and say it with us......
COMPOST THIS !!!
