Happy Trickster

Happy Trickster

Happy Trickster

Happy trickster, that’s Coyote
Saw him when I dropped peyote
Laying there in bed with me
Sound asleep and dreaming free

Toes were twitching, he was running
Some fool redneck out there gunning
Left his paw prints on the track
Walked on leaves and doubled back

Happy trickster ears akimbo
Living life in constant limbo
Hunted trapped reviled and hated
So under appreciated

Watch him prance amid the grasses
Sneak amid the sleeping masses
Got Coyote? I say thank it
Let him use your favorite blanket

He Studied at Enbridge

November 19th, 2014


EarthSourceMedia Breaking News…

NEWSFLASH: Dems reject Keystone XL pipeline in close vote. According to some sources, there will be another vote at a later date, after which Obama will likely use the pipeline as a bargaining chip in order for another of his policies to pass. Meanwhile, the US State Department ignores the sister project, Enbridge Line 67, which is moving ahead without permits.


He Studied at Enbridge
X L Pipeline that’s a ploy
Ask John Kerry, he’s our boy
While you’re looking toward the south
Endridge came from Kerry’s mouth
Line 67, the Alberta Clipper
One more pipeline for the Gipper
Same black tar from the same dam place
Clock ticks down on the human race
Nice little polar bear swims around
Two more days and he’ll be drowned
Short term profits, long term pain
See the acids in our rain
No one can control big oil
Land and sea they shall dispoil
Obama will approve XL
Sending all of us to hell
Just the facts…
*John Kerry is being sued as his State Department ignores secret evil twin pipeline:


*Polar Bear numbers plummet as sea ice melts:


*Democrat gathers votes to pass XL Pipeline, Obama to ok it later anyway:


Sign the petition against Enbridge, the XL Pipeline’s evil twin:


Let’s stop big oil!!

Introducing Titan

November 17th, 2014
Point of No Return

Point of No Return

Introduction to Triton

Everybody, please meet Triton
Forgive me if these pictures frighten
The magnitude of these foul ships
Forces one to come to grips

Just how much oil do we need
When does good sense outpace greed
Hard work just brought back the whale
Now these fools are straining shale

Pointed ship and kind of stocky
Made with pride in Nagasaki
Please don’t buy from Mitsubishi
Always up to something fishy

Live aboard or land your chopper
One good missile, that would stop her
Triton, this is Planet Mother:
Stop pretending there’s another



1.) Please watch this short fluffy sales video from the industry of Lucifer:

(Thanks to Ed Johnson for this amazing resource!)


2.) Now, send this letter to our leaders in government:


Marvel or Mayhem?

October 29th, 2014

Burning 'Marvel'

Burning ‘Marvel’

Marvel or mayhem?
Give me something slimy
Make it thick and black
Drill a hole with a bit on a pole
Behind the people’s back

Give the children something
They can do without
Blast a hole through bedrock
’till the dragon gushes out

Make the kids get asthma
You don’t give a f@!k
Long as yours are safe and sound
and you can make a buck

Maybe you saw the link or my letter in the Los Angeles Times in response to old oil rigs being left in the ocean to be called ‘reefs’. I got one response, obviously from some long-winded oil stooge and I will include the exchange below. But first, here’s the new news about how the BP oil has made the former Gulf of Mexico into an oily bath of death:


Translation? There’s an Exxon Valdez worth of oil slopping around the Macondo well on the dead gulf bottom, and far more languishing in the vicinity. And yet, here you have the brain dead Mr. Harris calling me names (my reply at bottom):

My letter:


Mr. Harris’s comment on my letter:

Stephen Harris – Indep.
• Rank 8213
For those who are not familiar with offshore drilling operations to compare a $1.5 billion engineering and structural marvel, one of the finest examples of what engineers can do ever seen, to a shopping cart is simply ignorant. All oil companies have end-of-life (“EOL”) demolition and removal budgeted, in addition to massive State Federal bonding that goes into the hundreds of millions of dollars per unit. It is not the oil companies that are pushing for continuing usage of the substructure, usually over 100 feet from the surface for clearance, but the various state agencies and some true environmental outfits that actually have sued the companies to stop the de-commissioning of EOL units. The point is, if some underwater craft, like a US submarine, were to actually hit one of these “rigs-to-reef” projects then all major oils and independents know full well they will still have liability, so they have to correct such continuing liability or the millions of shareholders that are the actual owners of the major oil companies would fire all of the Board and Management if they left the company exposed in such a manner. Fortunately, for 15 years now, the waivers have been forthcoming sufficient to cover such potential liability and every single one of the rigs-to-reef projects have been absolute spectacular success stories as to natural habitats and the creation thereof. This is nothing new, except to “hit” bloggers and those looking for an excuse to undermine American energy security. « less

My response to Mr. Harris and his ‘marvel':

• JoeyRacano
• Rank 12954
Somebody please tell Mr. Harris that his 1.5 billion dollar marvel left an oily bathtub ring the size of Delaware in the Gulf of Mexico. Remember this: These rigs use the latest tech to digitally position themselves at precise coordinates in the ocean, but only to suck up the dirtiest, most primitive form of energy- oil. Some marvel.

Joey Racano
• Just now

-BP should be made to clean up every last bit of that oil and their #1 customer, the pentagon, should help them.

Spirit Fawn

October 23rd, 2014
Taught to Kill

Taught to Kill

Spirit Fawn

Gavin killed the Spirit Fawn
He walked and stalked until the dawn
He had no brains, he had no brawn
Abused by dad, his heart was gone

Gavin killed a Spirit Deer
At age 11, he lives in fear
It seems so strange at death to jeer
A boy so young and cold and queer

Gavin speared the Spirit Doe
His soul has nowhere up to go
A unicorn as white as snow
Too fair to live, the Albino

Gavin made our hearts go mad
Taught to hate the world by dad
A diamond life killed for a fad
Gavin has made many sad

Now soar the valleys, Spirit Fawn
Fairest Deer was ever born
True it is our hearts are torn
But every rosebush has its thorn

Festival Without a Clam

October 22nd, 2014
No More Clams

No More Clams


Festival without a Clam

Man from Pismo, Pismo Man
His beach is famous for the clam
But Pismo’s Clam went on the lamb
You have no clams, Mr. Pismo Man

See the children how they ran
Ran to dig for Pismo Clam
But all they found within the sand
Were empty shells you placed by hand

Man from Pismo, Pismo Man
Beach made famous by the clam
But you won’t get to fill your can
All you’ll get here is a tan

Grandpa filled his old Ford van
Fed his hogs with Pismo’s Clam
Now the Clam fest is a sham
In the end, the hog was man

Man from Pismo, Pismo Man
Hide the truth long as you can
Come to clamfest, bring the fam
But no more clams, it’s only sand

joey racano

*How delusional to hold a Pismo Clam Festival when there are no more clams. Rather than have the children dig up empty clam shells, they should be shown the peril of the greed of their mothers and fathers and grandparents. Tell them where their clams went.


Thank You Whales (and our Friends who love them)!

Go Sea Shepherd!

Go Sea Shepherd!

Another Summer beach season comes and goes
Good folks digging in the sand with toes
Clouds lined up like cookies in the sky
Kids at the shore keep a watchful eye

Thar she blows!- comes the jubilant shout
as another mamma Humpback blows her spout
They’re just in time for the yearly jubilation
Thank You Whales, and the whole Whale Nation!

You saved us once and we took your advice
We promise that you’ll never have to save us twice
From the Shepherds of the Sea to the Greens of Peace:
‘Let the ecosystems heal and the Seals increase!’

For immediate release: Thank You Whales Celebration, 3rd Annual

On August 16th, 2014 at the Avila Community Center in Avila Beach, the Ocean Outfall Group and fellow conservation groups bring you the 3rd Annual installment of Thank You Whales, a celebration commemorating the Miracle of Avila, when whales showed up in pre-hunting numbers at the gates of Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant just in time to bring the world’s attention to planned seismic testing by plant owner, Pacific Gas and Electric. Because of the appearance of whales in Avila Harbor on August 16th, 2012, the seismic testing was defeated. And so every year, we say, ‘Thank You’-to our real heroes, the whales!

3rd Annual Thank You Whales is Saturday, August 16th 10:30am – sunset. Join us at the Avila Community Center to hear from some of the world’s top whale advocates!

Thank You Whales

Have you hugged your Whale today?

July 25th, 2014
Have you hugged your whale today?

Have you hugged your whale today?

Have you hugged your whale today?

Willing a Whale

Somebody once told me if I hugged a whale
The oceans would calm and the sea beasts prevail
But my arms were too short and I knew I would fail
Even when I tried it down by his tail

So using a technique I learned in Madrid
Forehead to forehead I hugged with my Id
That was the weirdest thing I ever did
The whale was surprised melding minds with a kid

I thought ‘Do you like me?’ The whale pictured, ‘Yes,’
and showed me where Blackbeard had buried a chest
‘Now, do run along boy, I’m needing of rest’
And that’s when I hugged him for being the best

That was the last time I saw Mr. Whale
To this day, nobody believes in this tale
But sure as a sunset, the sea did prevail
So call it a fluke and I’ll call it his tail

When the Baleen Doors Slam Shut

June 25th, 2014
Door slams shut!


When the Doors Slam Shut

No one could believe it
Whales were in the Bay
In numbers that had not been seen
for many long a day

A shutterbugs exclusive
Who gets to be that close?
Baleenoptera performance opera
In a mighty dose

Some drew near in kayaks
And birds danced on the nose
But you don’t want to be there
when that cavern starts to close!

Zooming in with cameras
Focus all in view
Zooming birds, excited words
And someone lost a shoe

Surfboards crossed the safety borders
Let me tell you whut-
WHUMP! You better back up when
The baleen doors slam shut!


Notes: Having evolved together in a sacred partnership, the Pelicans are in no danger. The whale in this photo waited patiently for the bird to fly out before closing up shop!
