Please note: I posted this at the Baltimore Green Examiner right here, but am also including this for readers of this blog. If you’re in the area, hope to see you there!
With Black Friday and Cyber Monday just around the corner, Baltimore’s Action! Film Serieswill be screening What Would Jesus Buy? on Tuesday, November 3rd at The Windup Space in Baltimore’s Station North Arts District, at 12 W. North Avenue. Doors open at 6:30, the film screens at 7:00pm, and a Q&A and shopping session will follow at approximately 8:30. This is one to tell your friends about!
What Would Jesus Buy?, produced by Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me), is a hilarious and energizing docu-comedy about over-consumption and the pending “Shopocalypse: the end of mankind from consumerism, over-consumption and the fires of eternal debt!” The film follows Reverend Billy and the Church of the Stop Shopping Gospel Choir as they go on a cross-country mission to save Christmas from the Shopocalypse. Check out the trailer.
Following the film, representatives from Green America, Ten Thousand Villages, Three Stone Steps and other green and fair trade businesses and organizations will be on hand to discuss responsible consumption and offer you excellent gift options for the season.
So, join us for an evening of film, discussion, drinking, laughter, and shopping!
The Shopocalypse is upon us … Who will be $aved?

Three Stone Steps has a little writing gig. I’m now the Baltimore Green Culture “Examiner.”
I’m delighted to be able to report on local “green culture” although I’m not sure exactly what that means. In fact, “green” is used so often, I’m not sure what the entire word means anymore. But, what’s good about an amorphous word and term is that I get to define it.
Today’s post is about these clever high heeled flippers (pictured above), which would be just perfect if any of those dystopian visions of climate change come to pass. And, frankly, these shoes would pair perfectly with the mosquito netting and waterproof Luna Bag for that special night out.
I wasn’t able to get back to Haiti this year. No need to go into it, but it just didn’t work out.
But, that doesn’t mean that I’m not getting some new Haitian goods. I am! I am very excited to announce that new metal cuffs are on the way, as are very amazing recycled hanging Christmas trees. (You can call them a Hannukah bush if you’d like, and they’d work for Kwanzaa, too.)
Anyway, without further ado, the cuffs. Here’s what they’re made of:
Here’s a photo of the artist working away on them:
And, here’s one. (Really, it’s wearable sculpture.):
I have a recycled metal Christmas tree for personal use. I’d post a photo of it, but someone stole my bag–with my camera in it–when I was vending at a festival recently. Such is life in the worldwide headquarters of Three Stone Steps, Baltimore, Maryland USA.
But, the decision on the new camera has been made, and it’s only a matter of time until you can see it, and decide if you want you own, long lasting, recycled holiday tree. (And, the trees would be great paired with recycled paper Christmas ornaments. Just a suggestion, but, really, it’s hard to get much funkier and greener for the holidays….)
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
