You Are What You Post

On the trail with Friends in Glarus, Switzerland.

You are what you post.

Social media is a Presentation of Values.
Every day, every post is a Time Capsule.
A memo to ourselves and the Universe.
It all accumulates.
And it is either a terrible burden that we must shoulder
or a Beautiful Blessing that Elevates us.
What we say here about ourselves, what we say to and about others,
is what we say about the world we live in.
Manners Matter.
Love and Kindness are Paramount.

What we do and what we say online, is a microcosm of our lives and of our world.
What we project here isn’t fiction.
It is a truth that reverberates and has far-reaching effects.
Imagine, if the same Energy that we used to gossip, to make a joke, to be sarcastic, snide, ridiculing, satirical, degrading or passive aggressive was instead used to be Affectionate, Sympathetic, Compassionate and Understanding.  
The slightest shift of Energy and Perspective could Truly Change the way we Interact with Each Other, and thus, Change The World We Live In For The Better.

Our Energies and our Interests should Always be Concentrated on Transcendental Things.
We can’t fight the fire while we feed the flames.

Keep Dreaming!

Street Plant started as a Dream, on the streets of Edison, New Jersey in 1984.
I Dreamt of a Skateboard Company that was a Dialogue.
I Dreamt of a Skateboard Company that didn’t just make stuff, but Made A Difference.
I Dreamt of a Skateboard Company that was a part of a Community of People, brought Together by Love, Passion and Positivity.
I Dreamt of a Skateboard Company that saw Skateboarding as an Elevated Art, beyond sport or competition, that was Open and Welcoming to All.
Every day, my Dream is Being Lived
Every Day, my Dream is Coming True!
I’ll keep Dreaming.
You keep Dreaming too!

Thank You Alex Hellings and the #StreetPlantBattalion Worldwide for Your Support, Love and Dreams!

No Plan B – Live (2017)

Mike Vallely & The New Arms performing the Good For You Song: No Plan B.

Audio Recorded Live at The Tower Bar in San Diego, CA June 8, 2017.

No Plan B
(Mike Vallely / Greg Ginn)

I jumped off of a cruise ship
Into water like cement
Broken I had to swim to shore
“Hey man, what did you do that for?”

Time collapses like a hit and run
Bullets fired from your tongue

When wild horses are tamed
Their spirit is dead
Death is their domain
Get that in your head

I never had a plan b
The only person I could trust was me
Haunted by what the critics say
Fuck them, who cares anyway?

Time collapses like a hit and run
Bullets fired from your thumbs

When wild horses are tamed
Their spirit is dead
Death is their domain
Get that in your head

I jumped off a cruise ship
My life preserver was a straightjacket
I never had a plan b
Hey man, what do you want from me?

Time collapses like a hit and run
Bullets fired from your tongue

When wild horses are tamed
Their spirit is dead
Death is their domain
Get that in your head

The original version of No Plan B is available on the Good For You LP – Life Is Too Short To Not Hold A Grudge (SST385).

The New Arms are:

Mike Montgomery (Guitar)
Kristian Svitak (Drums)

Filmed & Edited By: Rob Wallace.
