Amazon Says: In April 2011 The Residents brought their acclaimed Talking Light tour to Bimbo's 365 Club in San Francisco. The inspiration behind the Talking Light tour is The Residents' fascination with spooky stories. The Residents realized that what they saw as ""Ghost Stories"" had become a show about aging & death. They wanted to have fun with the concept and, in true Residents' fashion, their idea of fun is darker & scarier than the mainstream defines it. All of these ghost stories share a common theme, centered around TV culture & commercials, which ultimately asks the question: In a world where nearly everything has been categorized, how do we fulfill our need for the Fuzzy, the Vague, or the Supernatural. with TV commercials? The Residents have more creative answers for you. less...

Amazon Says: Examine some of the planet s great gatherings, creatures that come together in inconceivable numbers sometimes in millions, billions, and even trillions. Included are bats and bees, locust and ants, monarch butterflies in Mexico, 17-year cicada hatches, grunion in the Sea of Cortez and carp in the Mississippi River, sardine runs off the coast of South Africa, super flocks of parakeets in the Australian Outback, mayflies on the 4th of July, and even penguins and wildebeest. Some gather to breed or to migrate, some for protection, some simply to keep warm in the cold. But in the process, a kind of super-organism is created in which individual intelligence is superseded by a collective consciousness that shares information and moves with a single purpose for the benefit of all. Check out swarm intelligence, essentially a living embodiment of social media in the natural world. less...
