“every night i go to bed praying that people with money get taste, and people with taste get money” – DN
“And so, with Bruce, we went around
To Staples and Home Depot
And asked to see the Duct Tape choice
Without us sounding Creepo.
‘Tho Staples just had basic gray,
The Depot’s colors work!
We bought a roll of rainbow striped,
And from the clerk a smirk.
(It should be noted that the guy
At the Depot where we went,
Must’ve known, his apron shown
A noticeable tent!)”
-By Robert Hillyer
Save the date- March 15th DN brings you his next scandalous party.
Did you know that Daniel used to do a radio show??
Yes, it was called Dlist Radio- and we’ll be uploading all our vintage shows to Mancaster and you can listen HERE
this show features DN’s interview with Lady Gaga, Jack Mackenroth, Brent Corrigan with cameo’s by Aaron Elvis, Matt Phillp and Carlotta Wellington.
On Sunday, guy after guy came up to me asking about the Dream Academy- all i can say, is that you have to just jump in and come join us.
I’m thrilled because my life coach Harry Faddis is joining my Dream Academy to help facilitate.
Who is Harry Faddis:
Harry Faddis, DD, CPCC has been a member of the Easton Mountain Community since its founding and is also a member of the Board of Directors. He is a professional life coach and spiritual director who works with gay men, focusing on all male issues, including spirituality, eroticism, career, finances, and personal power. He is a co-founder of The Gay Coaches Alliance.
OAQ’s about Easton Mountain and the Dream Academy
1.) how am I going to get there?
There are two options. (three actually):
One, for an additional, $40 dollars, you road trip with us up. We’ll leave at noon on Friday the 28th from Union Square. Two, you take the train later in the day, and we’ll pick you up at the Albany station. Three, you drive yourself- it’s very easy. We’ll be returning on theSunday at noon- should be back in NYC by 4ish.
2.) what will we be doing?
Good question~ besides the goals setting workshops on Saturday, there are tons of activities at Easton- hiking, jacuzzing, yoga, meditation, movie watching, exercising
talking with people you don’t know- petting the goats, having sex- it’s all there. The main thrust of events will be on Saturday. Saturdaynight we’ll be doing some comedy with Adam Sank (yes a few of you will be getting up there) and then it’s an underwear party later with DJ Michael Vespe!
3.) Does the price include everything?
Food, lodging, workshops- it’s all in there.
4.) What do I need to bring?
Toiletries, long johns and a sense of adventure. Oh and a couple condoms just in case.
5.) Who will be facilitating the weekend?
Me, a couple friends who do this for a living, and some of the Easton staff who are life coaches (Harry Faddis)- you’ll be well taken care of.
Plus we added a fun special Sunday morning workshop!!!
Culture Jamming activist Jacques Servin joins DN’s Dream Academy
Jacques Servin (aka Andy Bichlbaum) got his start as an activist when, as a computer programmer, he inserted a swarm of kissing boys in a shoot-’em-up video game (SimCopter) just before it shipped to store shelves; he found himself fired, momentarily famous, and hugely amused.
Since then he’s gone on to found the Yes Men, and has impersonated Exxon, Dow, the WTO, Halliburton, Monsanto, and many other companies at conferences and on prime-time TV.
In this workshop, Jacques will talk about how to make productive trouble against environmental, economic and social injustices and the systemic problems that lead to them.
Here are the answers to some of the questions about my Easton Mountain Retreat about housing
1.) Semi Private: you can choose to get your own room in the lodge style housing, which is just like having a hotel room;
2.) The Garden Cabin:
a large communal room with bunk beds. Less expensive, near the outdoor sauna, but to shower you’ll have to walk the 50 yards to the main house;
3.) Quad: a room you’d share with just two or three guys in the ski lodge, with a private bathroom.
Thats housing- now onto what the weekend entails.
Since most of you have been to my events, you know I like to mix the sexual and fun, and occasionally the spiritual. For this weekend at Easton, we’ll have all meals together, plus our workshops with me based on a method for deducing your goals created by JIM ROHN, a comedy show featuring Adam Sank, plus movie nightFriday and Saturday night undie party in the great room DJ’d by the great Michael Vespe.
We’ll leave about 12:30 on Sunday, and have you back in NYC in plenty of time for your Oscar parties.
I’m being a little vague about the actual Goals Setting Workshops, because, if you know me, you know I will def surprise you and give you your money’s worth, but you dont need to know EVERYTHING in advance.
Plus we’ll have opps to do some yoga, jacuzzing, hiking, massage exchange, meditating…
Do you feel like your ship is missing a captain? Are you unable to establish goals and work towards them? Did you know that if you’re not growing, you’re stagnating?
