I am a fool for Machine Project. I never get to go to the events. They have a way of being planned in the middle of visits from out-of-town friends or can't-miss attractions such as staying at home with my two-year-old. But there is barely a single calendar item that I didn't wish I could just rearrange the particulars of my life for this one time only. Well, at least Machine's calendar is a blast to read, an event in itself. Machine is so...what I want the world to be. Creative collective, environmentally conscious AND arts-conscious; simultaneously groovy and dowdy, the collective seems really to want to be helpful. It's poetry and edible gardens, crazy cubes, macrame and radio waves and now the colors of the rainbow. Just seeing that poetry bus parked on Sunset Boulevard last week and the tomato-mint etc. micro organic gardens in a trashcan in the window of Machine's storefront yesterday and knowing the two "events" were connected made me feel I lived in a good place.
