  2. Ah so good… Lots of great blog posts Nathan. I see much that impresses me as I scroll through your work. So active. I am envious. But this caught my eye as I always played “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised” on the first day of me media studies class. Do you know Sarah Jones’ adaptation “My Revolution?” Excellent stuff.
