A real life screening of Meditate and Destroy at the Times Square Art Center in New York will be simulcast in the Multiverse Places virtual world this Friday, October 24 at 9pm Eastern Time. I'm really looking forward to this one!
MEDITATE AND DESTROY provides an intimate and dynamic portrait of an unconventional Buddhist teacher and counselor. This powerful 80 minute documentary shows how author Noah Levine (Dharma Punx, Against the Stream) uses his personal experience and punk-rock sensibilities to connect with young people within juvenile halls and urban centers around the country. Tattoos, motorcycles, and an engaging punk rock soundtrack are featured in this hard hitting look at how Buddhism has a place in the world of punks. from Tricycle blog.The film also includes an animated back-story created in Second Life.
