DJ Coachella With A Little Help From Your Friends

Energy FACTory DJ Mixer Returns To Indio

Here’s your chance to spin in front of thousands of people at the Coachella Music & Art Festival.

First there’s a catch! With great opportunity, comes great sacrifice. You cannot perform on your own.
You’ll need at least 18 friends, family members or fellow festival goers to power all your equipment. Your team will be in the Energy Playground (next to the stage) riding hamster wheels, tour de energy bikes, energy swings, energy see-saw, turning hand cranks plus more!

All the energy created will be stored in our lithium-ion battery Energy Wells that will power your DJ equipment.

Lastly, you must be able to rule the decks. Send us your website or sample tracks (any email received over 2mb will be blacklisted) so we can listen to your set.
Set times during Coachella are 40 mins. If your friends are in great condition and you’re owning the audience….this time period can be extended.

Garbage Dreams See The Movie

February 5, 2010 by Robin · Leave a Comment 

GARBAGE DREAMS

Director and Producer:   Mai Iskander

Winner of the IDA’s Humanitas Award, GARBAGE DREAMS follows three teenage boys – Adham, a bright precocious 17-year-old; Osama, a charming impish 16-year-old; Nabil, a shy artistic 18-year-old – all born into the trash trade, among Egypt’s Christian, Zaballeen minority.  The “garbage people” as they are called, live in a ghetto located on the outskirts of Cairo. It is a world folded onto itself, an impenetrable labyrinth of narrow roadways camouflaged by trash.

The Zaballeen survive by recycling the city’s waste.  Astonishingly, they repurpose 80% of the garbage, creating what is arguably the world’s most efficient waste disposal system.   When Cairo’s city government suddenly decides to replace them with multinational garbage disposal companies, the community finds itself at a crossroads and face to face with the globalization of their trade.
