Tardigrades and Spacemen in Sedona?

Planet Sandwich rocks the Sedona Mountain Bike Festival

In case you didn’t get enough – here is a live version of The Tardigrade as performed by Planet Sandwich. I filmed this! It was a great show with an incredible back drop.

I miss seeing these guys live.

Planet Sandwich are:

Paul Perreault – vocals, guitar
Troy Marino – drums
Geoffrey Whittaker – lead guitar, vocal
Richard May – bas

I'm a rock-n-roller poet who left the Big Apple for the Big Sky Desert where I've been letting it be and grooving with universal love, singing to the gods, dancing with the muses and bicycling with dreamtime messengers. I like altering my reality through imagination, movement, breath, and makin' stuff.

  1. Hi Timothy! The Sedona mountain bike festival happens the first weekend of March every year. This was on March 3, 2019. Planet Sandwich plays the festival every year. All the guys in the band are expert cyclists – all but Paul – Paul is a newbie. I haven’t even processed the video from 2020 – they played just a few days before everything shut down in Arizona.

    Richard has his own frame building company called Mustache Cycles – he builds custom frames by hand in a small shop. He was apprentice to Steve Garro of Coconino Cycles.

    Geoffrey is a bicycle mechanic at Flag Bike Rev.

    Troy is a wild man. He is also a skier and is part of a ski patrol that makes sure conditions are safe – he is an avalanche expert.

    All the boys built a bike for Paul with a Coconino Cycles frame and different parts they had. When Paul and I go riding it is so funny to see mtn bike dudes check out his bike. Those Coconino frames are very sought after.

    I ride a Soma steel hardtail.

    I’m sure that’s more than you needed to know! I am a bit of a cycling geek, though riding has been strange these last couple of years. Last year and the year before, the forest was closed down to to fire restrictions and forest fires. This year, it’s open, but my favorite trails are inundated with logging trucks. It’s been freakin weird. I’ve been riding different trails – thought not my favorite. And, the vibe is weird – I think since covid-19 – anything is a little more trepidatious. I am way more cautious – don’t want to end up in the ER ever, but especially now.

    OK! I will stop writing for now. Have an amazing day!

    Holly 🙂

  2. Oh YEAH! And, that O’Keefe Sky backdrop is raw splendor. Love it. The desert, like the Tardigrade, makes its own laws about death, and when you look closely enough you find the living colors, prickly pears, and… Planet Sandwich in that rockin’ venue!! Such a great song. Feels edgy in all the right ways like a Clown Fish cuddling up with an Anemone and immune because it has it’s own intensity full-on. Planet Sandwich and the Tardigrade and the desert. That’s a living and poetic alchemy that I’ll take. Love this! Just love it!

      1. I am SO a fish out of desert water here on the East Coast. TOO many trees and NO Big 360-degree Sky. Ticks instead of scorpions. Trash instead of snakes.

        I’m usually not one to complain, though I’ve molted what brought me here and love my fresh new colors and clarity.

        Fortunately, there’s a cabin in Red River, NM soon to be mine. And, watching this rockin’ vid with the O’Keefe Clouds Sky, and a conversation I had with a friend last week… I’ve turned to tack into the wind to get back to my native SW — Santa Fe, Denver, Albuquerque, Sedona, Red River. It’s going to take some doing and a solid while to do, though… it’s not like I’m afraid of work or going deep and driving my energies. I think I have that driver’s license. 🙂

        Both the studio and the live Tardigrade versions were orbiting through my mind yesterday and this morning like a runaway train binary star system and I was joyfully Silver Surfing its wake with ease as if born to it. It’s good to know when you know… It’s Time. 🙂
        Much ❤ to you and Pauly for pouring some “operations” into the alchemy crucible. And, thanks to the Tardigrade who makes its own laws, and takes the pressure like a quarter million psi I’m done playing cog — that gear that runs seamlessly and fluidly without fail under intense heat and pressure… Next!
        Cool.E.O! This is the 2nd time I’ve written this down. The 1st was in a text to a wonderful friend in Denver last week, mentioned above.

        Ok, one 5-6-year Jordan lap run and now recorded here as… no finish line, simply the Ace of Wands compass of Me rooster-tailing the arced lead line to close the circle, hop the point to land, and continue the next lap like closing the circle was more of shooting a chicane in a river or on the track. WHy downshift when you can rocket straight through? 🙂

        Thanks Holly & Pauly
        I’m proud to have had this happen right here. Birth and molting are just that when they… the snake his skin shedded, the snake his skin not missed.

        1. it’s so exciting that you will be landing back in new Mexico at some point. I think if I ever went back to the east coast I could maybe be in Vermont – otherwise, the southwest is it. i love it so much.

          And I want to explore New Mexico more, and Colorado. My moon line runs through or near Flagstaff, but my Venus line runs through New Mexico and Colorado (the other states it runs through are of no interest to me).

          I am so happy the tardigrade and the videos are helping you dream and visualize the southwest again! it will happen!

          I have been feeling the energy of Cancer big time and am finally feeling like I am ready for a home of my own. While I have some visions of visiting the Pacific Northwest on the regular beginning next year – home is the south west!

          Home! Yes! Before you know it . . . .

          1. Yes, before you / I know it . . . .
            Things have always happened when I step with this feeling… Denver on Dec 2, 1991 after deciding 2 weeks before in Lubbock after graduating, “time to go somewhere I’ve never been and do something I’ve never done. I’ll go to Denver, and paint in oils and watercolors (which up to that point I had not).” 2 weeks later I was on my way, through the night through a blizzard smiling poking along up the highway with almost zero visibility on a road I’ve never driven with the mantra of, “well, sometimes nothing good begins without a little controversy.” Now, the “controversy” isn’t an either/or thing for me. It’s the Both/And of labor pains and birth into next epic epoch of my iteration and evolution.

            Home! Yes!
            And, Yes to you having a home of your own. Before you know it . . . .

          2. Funny, last time I did any Astrocartography was 20 years ago… I wasn’t the Astrologer or person I am today. Too many vague choices back then… which meant “I WAS UNSURE OF MYSELF myself” which stifles a reading when YOU are the reader. 🙂 🙂 After I finish my next product for SHop ImaginAction this afternoon, I know what I’ll be doing with my Chart. :). Thanks for the prompt!!

            1. Sweet!

              I have some website work to do – but I think I am going to let it go today. Paul and I have some songs to learn, including one we both had a hand in writing. Some new videos coming up soon. 🙂

              Good luck with the web shop – and the astro work!

              Have an awesome day, Jordan!

              1. Thanks, Holly! ImaginAction and “Prescient Remembrance: Dialogue of a Vampire” poetry collection both up as of yesterday. One by one Both/And steppin’ 🙂

                You & Paul have an awesome day as well! I’ll look forward to new songs and videos coming up soon like the Sun. 🙂
