(Note : I’ve edited this excerpt a bit as I think further about the many issues raised in the original letter but no big changes , only expansions on the scope )

Independent Artists are ‘First Responders’  to the Soul of Culture and an Endangered Species “ 

© by Cali Lili 

I raised my hand a lot in grade school. Didn’t always know the answer but so pumped engaging on the questions. One day, I found myself in the hallway with the teacher explaining that my class-mates were bullying me because they were jealous. Jealous? Of me? “WHY would ANYONE be jealous of me?”  

Raising my hand was a symptom of raising myself, surviving an abusive home, so my self esteem wasn’t always strong. I guess my hand raised in class was a plea to the multiverse, a signal for some lifeguard somewhere that I wanted to learn. To swim, not drown.

“Never stop raising your hand” my teacher said in a fervent, personal way. Even at that young age I understood someone must have laughed at her, tried to thwart her. She was warning me never to give in to the bullies as I would only betray myself. Her kindness and humanity, her warning about never limiting my own “possibility,” her willingness to be vulnerable yet strong were the underlying lessons.

CUT TO : 

A few years later, I’ve been skipped grades and I’m the youngest kid in high school. Now I’m summoned to the principals’ office. Never been in any principals’ office, like, EVER. He’s yelling at me. My offense? I got accepted into early enrollment for University. I’m skipping the last years of high school, the diploma and the prom because University is offering me full scholarship. This principal guy is yelling at me because his school is “losing money” due to my leaving early. WTF. 

CUT TO : 

A few years later, I’m still raising my hand. 

Dear Honorable Members of Congress,

Dear Honorable Executive Branch,

And 

Everyone who cares about Art, Democracy, Civilization and Food,

SUBJECT :

Rescuing Independent Artists,

An Endangered Species, 

(like Democracy)

from the 

Gentrification Of Culture 

President Biden described America in one word : POSSIBILITY.

I’m addressing you because I believe we have succumbed to a dominance/superiority – supremacy – based bully culture thwarting our possibility. The rise of supremacists might be the symptom of that malady and we might find cures by addressing the underlying causes. Nourishing the body of our democracy instead of pushing ourselves beyond the native wellness of our inherent humanity.

DISTRIBUTION of Movies is Like BEEF … or Generally, FOOD

It may seem odd, but I’m referencing Senator Jon Testers’ Montana bill, protecting small meat producers from the monopoly of mega-distributors here. Obstruction & lack of fairness in distribution opportunities for independent artists is oddly similar to that of beef/food. This also reeks from our nations’ dependence on oil and victimization at the hands of conservative obstructionism including the supremacist misogyny, racism & homophobia on display in the current state of the so-called Supreme Court.  

Like Ben Franklin, influenced by the “Enlightenment,” we can push back the Dark Ages by unlocking that forbidden door embracing the heart of our resistance, choosing disobedience over dogma, lest we become willing victims of so many contemporary “blue-beards.”

The parallels to distribution of film, music, arts, humanities & other cultural “products” (among our greatest “exports” like Democracy) could not be more pressing as we approach upcoming elections. Of course, the big-money-media dominance problem likely stems from an antitrust problem that maintains artificial hierarchies of false superiority, so deeply entrenched, for so long, in the highly influential cultural “media products” we all consume daily (and export too) which has infected our global cultural psyche, railroaded political discourse into a reality show circus and left us, the planet, where we are today. 

I am trying to share what you may not know about the day to day details affecting the soul of an independent artists’ life, the vocation, the “calling” of culture-making. I’m trying to build a case for some possible solutions that might help us all. 

I’m an independent artist who founded my own SustainableStudiO™️ where we make movies, music & publishing about social & climate justice themes with diverse crews. When a small independent filmmaker, like myself, used her meager savings along with some angel investments to make a tiny highly innovative movie & album with a diverse all female crew and then went “begging” to several film distributors, their response-echo was invariably : 

 “we (the distributors) do not accept unsolicited submissions 

from producers we have not worked with in the past.” 

So, these distributors are admitting, in writing, the insanity : that if a filmmaker like me, has not distributed a movie with them before, there is NO WAY to distribute my independently made, non-corporate film in any of the major American cinema or global marketplaces and get paid fairly in order to continue to do my own life’s work. The entertainment industry is arguably among our most lucrative ( for the few ) & exported sources of “American made product.” Or, is it ? 

We Need a Thriving Artist Community Of Non-Billionaires 

Distributor responses like these, were most devastating from so called (imposters) “indie” distributors who held out promise to those of us creating fresh projects unaware that status quo is already busy buying up all the possibilities while portraying themselves to the public as though they themselves are “indies,” thieving from actual independent artists like myself, as we scrape together pennies in spite of the “gentrification of culture.” 

 “Gentrification of Culture” 

“ Independent Artists are ‘First Responders’  to the Soul of Culture 

We represent the innocence

the wilderness within.  “ ©  

Early on I recognized that my culture valued me as a “baby-maker” far more than it valued what I consider my “babies” : my works of art.  Authentic independent artists need breathing room and respect, in the same way parents with young kids, senior citizens or students, are understood and valued in this culture. Yes this may seem a radical idea but guys, people have paid millions for the progeny of Van Gogh, Picasso, et. al … How about affording some grace for living artists? How about a similar tax structure for artists, like the great director John Huston initiated in Ireland? 

Why are Corporate Entities allowed to appropriate / impersonate the important role of artists in culture? We have quietly slipped into an Entertainment Oligarchy where manufactured superiority rules. This “Dominance / Supremacist Fiscal Model” also reflects our dependence on the oil industry and victimhood to Conservative Obstructionism. This is us, in the fun-house fascist mirror we seem to find so fascinating. Lordy I hope we don’t find out for real. Popular culture tends to deride the “starving artist.” I’m asking us to consider, who is getting the last laugh and at what expense to democracy, freedom, civilization, the planet ? 

Recently 60 minutes did a story about Wall Street taking over housing and making it almost impossible for people to own homes or pay rent in the 21st Century. The story aired on March 20, 2022. I’ve personally experienced the horrors of gentrification, when my own tiny sustainable, hand-built studio located in a sleepy little beach neighborhood was targeted by developers. We fought back. I’m asking us all to do the same. 

Corporate talking heads blithely spout false equivalencies and casually endorse products like books, movies and other entertainment products on the so-called “news.” Our culture has long been indoctrinated into worshiping money and dominance, so we no longer show respect for authentic artists not “so-called-curated” by corporate gate-keepers. To me, that means we have lost respect for ourselves, doomed to be groomed in the worship of the corporation.

A compromised culture incubated, birthed, indoctrinated into gentrification  

and  “worshiping at the altar of wealth” will logically elevate notions like “superiority” and “dominance” at the expense of the necessary humanities that celebrate non-transactional human behaviors and values necessary to healthy culture and democracy. I am advocating for non-corporate, authentic independent artists but also for the simple concept of “truth.”

Who writes the A-List? 

We need to support “artists for artist’s sake” which is to say “liberty”  “freedom” and the “pursuit of happiness” for their own sake too. We need to secure “UNCURATED” yet remunerative spaces, for the artist in society. Europe and Canada maintain a healthy respect for artists, why can’t we? 

Please help us all stay independent from the Cultural Industrial Complex, let’s create a “farmers’ market” for indie films & music. Let’s have an online space where seasoned directors & producers can directly communicate with newcomers like me. Let’s not limit our own possibilities, betray ourselves. Let us “raise our hands” in the global classroom, ask questions, not settle for the candidate, or the movie or album with the biggest budget, the loudest voice, the most cruel derision or worse, the indifference of apathy. 

Big money media is so dominant over every screen, from big screens to cell-phones, that they are literally “authoring” – “dictating” not just our thoughts, but the very process of thinking. We need new common sense thinking and action addressing culture-making by independent artists – and also – the mechanics of why we need to vote for ourselves.

The independent artist, unowned, like a public servant who does not answer to big money, is never beholden to big money corporate conglomerates 

and therefore represents the deep “infrastructure” of the soul of our nation, 

without which, we collapse deeper into the transactional, corporate, oligarchical  reality show culture that got us where we are today. 

So Let’s make the possibility of a better tomorrow possible. “

Important Update For 2023 & beyond: Tech Security Matters For Fairness in the Digital Economy

Some of the needed legislation that the FTC , White House Office Of Technology and the Consumer Finance Bureau could help us with – involves unfair business practices employed online by both big & small competitors with access to nefarious technological techniques used to downgrade competitors’ SEO , things like “shadow-banning” or SEO hacking – techniques which can be employed by publicists or anyone with access to this tech to lower artists’ and other small business presence online.

This ties in with our need for national online security. Truly a national security issue that should not be left to each individual computer / phone user because frankly, we can’t keep up with it.

“It takes astonishing courage to step out of the confines of linear expectations, walk alone into the woods with just a True North compass; to launch a small, single – woman sailboat into the Pacific, living out of the sea. Or – to make a film, in LA, with a beggars budget and, yet, have it all become so intellectually gratifying and allowing us to think on it long after.”

Independent Artists are ‘First Responders’  to the Soul of Culture and an Endangered Species “

And 

Everyone who cares about Art, Democracy, Civilization and Beef.

(like Democracy)

from the

Independent Artists are ‘First Responders’  to the Soul of Culture and an Endangered Species “ 

Excerpt from my letter to Congress and the Executive Branch

© by Cali Lili 

I raised my hand a lot in grade school. Didn’t always know the answer but so pumped engaging on the questions. One day, I found myself in the hallway with the teacher explaining that my class-mates were bullying me because they were jealous. Jealous? Of me? “WHY would ANYONE be jealous of me?”  

Raising my hand was a symptom of raising myself, surviving an abusive home, so my self esteem wasn’t always strong. I guess my hand raised in class was a plea to the multiverse, a signal for some lifeguard somewhere that I wanted to learn. To swim, not drown.

“Never stop raising your hand” my teacher said in a fervent, personal way. Even at that young age I understood someone must have laughed at her, tried to thwart her. She was warning me never to give in to the bullies as I would only betray myself. Her kindness and humanity, her warning about never limiting my own “possibility,” her willingness to be vulnerable yet strong were the underlying lessons.

CUT TO : 

A few years later, I’ve been skipped grades and I’m the youngest kid in high school. Now I’m summoned to the principals’ office. Never been in any principals’ office, like, EVER. He’s yelling at me. My offense? I got accepted into early enrollment for University. I’m skipping the last years of high school, the diploma and the prom because University is offering me full scholarship. This principal guy is yelling at me because his school is “losing money” due to my leaving early. WTF. 

CUT TO : 

A few years later, I’m still raising my hand. 

Dear 117th Congress ,

Beloved President Biden & Vice President Kamala Harris

And 

Everyone who cares about Art, Democracy, Civilization and Beef. 

SUBJECT :         

Earth Day 

Rescuing Independent Artists,

An Endangered Species, 

(like Democracy)

from the 

Gentrification Of Culture 

President Biden described America in one word : POSSIBILITY. I’m addressing you because I believe we have succumbed to a dominance/superiority based bully culture thwarting our possibility.

DISTRIBUTION of Movies is Like BEEF

It may seem odd, but I’m referencing Senator Jon Testers’ Montana bill, protecting small meat producers from the monopoly of mega-distributors here. Obstruction & lack of fairness in distribution opportunities for independent artists is oddly similar to that of beef/food. This also reeks from our nations’ dependence on oil and victimization at the hands of conservative obstructionism including the supremacist misogyny, racism & homophobia on display in the current state of the so-called Supreme Court.  

Like Ben Franklin, influenced by the “Enlightenment,” we can push back the Dark Ages by unlocking that forbidden door embracing the heart of our resistance, choosing disobedience over dogma, lest we become willing victims of so many contemporary “blue-beards.”

The parallels to distribution of film, music, arts, humanities & other cultural “products” (among our greatest “exports” like Democracy) could not be more pressing as we approach upcoming elections. Of course, the big-money-media dominance problem likely stems from an antitrust problem that maintains artificial hierarchies of false superiority, so deeply entrenched, for so long, in the highly influential cultural “media products” we all consume daily (and export too) which has infected our global cultural psyche, railroaded political discourse into a reality show circus and left us, the planet, where we are today. 

I am trying to share what you may not know about the day to day details affecting the soul of an independent artists’ life, the vocation, the “calling” of culture-making. I’m trying to build a case for some possible solutions that might help us all. 

I’m an independent artist who founded my own SustainableStudiO™️ where we make movies, music & publishing about social & climate justice themes with diverse crews. When a small independent filmmaker, like myself, used her meager savings along with some angel investments to make a tiny highly innovative movie & album with a diverse all female crew and then went “begging” to several film distributors, their response-echo was invariably : 

 “we (the distributors) do not accept unsolicited submissions 

from producers we have not worked with in the past.” 

So, these distributors are admitting, in writing, the insanity : that if a filmmaker like me, has not distributed a movie with them before, there is NO WAY to distribute my independently made, non-corporate film in any of the major American cinema or global marketplaces and get paid fairly in order to continue to do my own life’s work. The entertainment industry is arguably among our most lucrative ( for the few ) & exported sources of “American made product.” Or, is it ? 

We Need a Thriving Artist Community Of Non-Billionaires 

Distributor responses like these, were most devastating from so called (imposters) “indie” distributors who held out promise to those of us creating fresh projects unaware that status quo is already busy buying up all the possibilities while portraying themselves to the public as though they themselves are “indies,” thieving from actual independent artists like myself, as we scrape together pennies in spite of the “gentrification of culture.” 

 “Gentrification of Culture” 

“ Independent Artists are ‘First Responders’  to the Soul of Culture 

We represent the innocence

the wilderness within.  “ ©  

Early on I recognized that my culture valued me as a “baby-maker” far more than it valued what I consider my “babies” : my works of art.  Authentic independent artists need breathing room and respect, in the same way parents with young kids, senior citizens or students, are understood and valued in this culture. Yes this may seem a radical idea but guys, people have paid millions for the progeny of Van Gogh, Picasso, et. al … How about affording some grace for living artists? How about a similar tax structure for artists, like the great director John Huston initiated in Ireland? 

Why are Corporate Entities allowed to appropriate / impersonate the important role of artists in culture? We have quietly slipped into an Entertainment Oligarchy where manufactured superiority rules. This “Dominance / Supremacist Fiscal Model” also reflects our dependence on the oil industry and victimhood to Conservative Obstructionism. This is us, in the fun-house fascist mirror we seem to find so fascinating. Lordy I hope we don’t find out for real. Popular culture tends to deride the “starving artist.” I’m asking us to consider, who is getting the last laugh and at what expense to democracy, freedom, civilization, the planet ? 

Recently 60 minutes did a story about Wall Street taking over housing and making it almost impossible for people to own homes or pay rent in the 21st Century. The story aired on March 20, 2022. I’ve personally experienced the horrors of gentrification, when my own tiny sustainable, hand-built studio located in a sleepy little beach neighborhood was targeted by developers. We fought back. I’m asking us all to do the same. 

Corporate talking heads blithely spout false equivalencies and casually endorse products like books, movies and other entertainment products on the so-called “news.” Our culture has long been indoctrinated into worshiping money and dominance, so we no longer show respect for authentic artists not “so-called-curated” by corporate gate-keepers. To me, that means we have lost respect for ourselves, doomed to be groomed in the worship of the corporation.

A compromised culture incubated, birthed, indoctrinated into gentrification  

and  “worshiping at the altar of wealth” will logically elevate notions like “superiority” and “dominance” at the expense of the necessary humanities that celebrate non-transactional human behaviors and values necessary to healthy culture and democracy. I am advocating for non-corporate, authentic independent artists but also for the simple concept of “truth.”

Who writes the A-List? 

We need to support “artists for artist’s sake” which is to say “liberty”  “freedom” and the “pursuit of happiness” for their own sake too. We need to secure “UNCURATED” yet remunerative spaces, for the artist in society. Europe and Canada maintain a healthy respect for artists, why can’t we? 

Please help us all stay independent from the Cultural Industrial Complex, let’s create a “farmers’ market” for indie films & music. Let’s have an online space where seasoned directors & producers can directly communicate with newcomers like me. Let’s not limit our own possibilities, betray ourselves. Let us “raise our hands” in the global classroom, ask questions, not settle for the candidate, or the movie or album with the biggest budget, the loudest voice, the most cruel derision or worse, the indifference of apathy. 

Big money media is so dominant over every screen, from big screens to cell-phones, that they are literally “authoring” – “dictating” not just our thoughts, but the very process of thinking. We need new common sense thinking and action addressing culture-making by independent artists – and also – the mechanics of why we need to vote for ourselves.

The independent artist, unowned, like a public servant who does not answer to big money, is never beholden to big money corporate conglomerates 

and therefore represents the deep “infrastructure” of the soul of our nation, 

without which, we collapse deeper into the transactional, corporate, oligarchical  reality show culture that got us where we are today. 

So Let’s make the possibility of a better tomorrow possible. “

Independent Artists are ‘First Responders’  to the Soul of Culture and an Endangered Species “ 

© by Cali Lili 

I raised my hand a lot in grade school. Didn’t always know the answer but so pumped engaging on the questions. One day, I found myself in the hallway with the teacher explaining that my class-mates were bullying me because they were jealous. Jealous? Of me? “WHY would ANYONE be jealous of me?”  

Raising my hand was a symptom of raising myself, surviving an abusive home, so my self esteem wasn’t always strong. I guess my hand raised in class was a plea to the multiverse, a signal for some lifeguard somewhere that I wanted to learn. To swim, not drown.

“Never stop raising your hand” my teacher said in a fervent, personal way. Even at that young age I understood someone must have laughed at her, tried to thwart her. She was warning me never to give in to the bullies as I would only betray myself. Her kindness and humanity, her warning about never limiting my own “possibility,” her willingness to be vulnerable yet strong were the underlying lessons.

CUT TO : 

A few years later, I’ve been skipped grades and I’m the youngest kid in high school. Now I’m summoned to the principals’ office. Never been in any principals’ office, like, EVER. He’s yelling at me. My offense? I got accepted into early enrollment for University. I’m skipping the last years of high school, the diploma and the prom because University is offering me full scholarship. This principal guy is yelling at me because his school is “losing money” due to my leaving early. WTF. 

CUT TO : 

A few years later, I’m still raising my hand. 

Dear 117th Congress

SUBJECT :         

Earth Day 

Rescuing Independent Artists,

An Endangered Species, 

(like Democracy)

from the 

Gentrification Of Culture 

President Biden described America in one word : POSSIBILITY. I’m addressing you because I believe we have succumbed to a dominance/superiority based bully culture thwarting our possibility.

DISTRIBUTION of Movies is Like BEEF

It may seem odd, but I’m referencing Senator Jon Testers’ Montana bill, protecting small meat producers from the monopoly of mega-distributors here. Obstruction & lack of fairness in distribution opportunities for independent artists is oddly similar to that of beef/food. This also reeks from our nations’ dependence on oil and victimization at the hands of conservative obstructionism including the supremacist misogyny, racism & homophobia on display in the current state of the so-called Supreme Court.  

Like Ben Franklin, influenced by the “Enlightenment,” we can push back the Dark Ages by unlocking that forbidden door embracing the heart of our resistance, choosing disobedience over dogma, lest we become willing victims of so many contemporary “blue-beards.”

The parallels to distribution of film, music, arts, humanities & other cultural “products” (among our greatest “exports” like Democracy) could not be more pressing as we approach upcoming elections. Of course, the big-money-media dominance problem likely stems from an antitrust problem that maintains artificial hierarchies of false superiority, so deeply entrenched, for so long, in the highly influential cultural “media products” we all consume daily (and export too) which has infected our global cultural psyche, railroaded political discourse into a reality show circus and left us, the planet, where we are today. 

I am trying to share what you may not know about the day to day details affecting the soul of an independent artists’ life, the vocation, the “calling” of culture-making. I’m trying to build a case for some possible solutions that might help us all. 

I’m an independent artist who founded my own SustainableStudiO™️ where we make movies, music & publishing about social & climate justice themes with diverse crews. When a small independent filmmaker, like myself, used her meager savings along with some angel investments to make a tiny highly innovative movie & album with a diverse all female crew and then went “begging” to several film distributors, their response-echo was invariably : 

 “we (the distributors) do not accept unsolicited submissions 

from producers we have not worked with in the past.” 

So, these distributors are admitting, in writing, the insanity : that if a filmmaker like me, has not distributed a movie with them before, there is NO WAY to distribute my independently made, non-corporate film in any of the major American cinema or global marketplaces and get paid fairly in order to continue to do my own life’s work. The entertainment industry is arguably among our most lucrative ( for the few ) & exported sources of “American made product.” Or, is it ? 

We Need a Thriving Artist Community Of Non-Billionaires 

Distributor responses like these, were most devastating from so called (imposters) “indie” distributors who held out promise to those of us creating fresh projects unaware that status quo is already busy buying up all the possibilities while portraying themselves to the public as though they themselves are “indies,” thieving from actual independent artists like myself, as we scrape together pennies in spite of the “gentrification of culture.” 

 “Gentrification of Culture” 

“ Independent Artists are ‘First Responders’  to the Soul of Culture 

We represent the innocence

the wilderness within.  “ ©  

Early on I recognized that my culture valued me as a “baby-maker” far more than it valued what I consider my “babies” : my works of art.  Authentic independent artists need breathing room and respect, in the same way parents with young kids, senior citizens or students, are understood and valued in this culture. Yes this may seem a radical idea but guys, people have paid millions for the progeny of Van Gogh, Picasso, et. al … How about affording some grace for living artists? How about a similar tax structure for artists, like the great director John Huston initiated in Ireland? 

Why are Corporate Entities allowed to appropriate / impersonate the important role of artists in culture? We have quietly slipped into an Entertainment Oligarchy where manufactured superiority rules. This “Dominance / Supremacist Fiscal Model” also reflects our dependence on the oil industry and victimhood to Conservative Obstructionism. This is us, in the fun-house fascist mirror we seem to find so fascinating. Lordy I hope we don’t find out for real. Popular culture tends to deride the “starving artist.” I’m asking us to consider, who is getting the last laugh and at what expense to democracy, freedom, civilization, the planet ? 

Recently 60 minutes did a story about Wall Street taking over housing and making it almost impossible for people to own homes or pay rent in the 21st Century. The story aired on March 20, 2022. I’ve personally experienced the horrors of gentrification, when my own tiny sustainable, hand-built studio located in a sleepy little beach neighborhood was targeted by developers. We fought back. I’m asking us all to do the same. 

Corporate talking heads blithely spout false equivalencies and casually endorse products like books, movies and other entertainment products on the so-called “news.” Our culture has long been indoctrinated into worshiping money and dominance, so we no longer show respect for authentic artists not “so-called-curated” by corporate gate-keepers. To me, that means we have lost respect for ourselves, doomed to be groomed in the worship of the corporation.

A compromised culture incubated, birthed, indoctrinated into gentrification  

and  “worshiping at the altar of wealth” will logically elevate notions like “superiority” and “dominance” at the expense of the necessary humanities that celebrate non-transactional human behaviors and values necessary to healthy culture and democracy. I am advocating for non-corporate, authentic independent artists but also for the simple concept of “truth.”

Who writes the A-List? 

We need to support “artists for artist’s sake” which is to say “liberty”  “freedom” and the “pursuit of happiness” for their own sake too. We need to secure “UNCURATED” yet remunerative spaces, for the artist in society. Europe and Canada maintain a healthy respect for artists, why can’t we? 

Please help us all stay independent from the Cultural Industrial Complex, let’s create a “farmers’ market” for indie films & music. Let’s have an online space where seasoned directors & producers can directly communicate with newcomers like me. Let’s not limit our own possibilities, betray ourselves. Let us “raise our hands” in the global classroom, ask questions, not settle for the candidate, or the movie or album with the biggest budget, the loudest voice, the most cruel derision or worse, the indifference of apathy. 

Big money media is so dominant over every screen, from big screens to cell-phones, that they are literally “authoring” – “dictating” not just our thoughts, but the very process of thinking. We need new common sense thinking and action addressing culture-making by independent artists – and also – the mechanics of why we need to vote for ourselves.

The independent artist, unowned, like a public servant who does not answer to big money, is never beholden to big money corporate conglomerates 

and therefore represents the deep “infrastructure” of the soul of our nation, 

without which, we collapse deeper into the transactional, corporate, oligarchical  reality show culture that got us where we are today. 

So Let’s make the possibility of a better tomorrow possible. “

Let us “raise our hands” in the global classroom, ask questions, not settle for the candidate, or the movie or album with the biggest budget, the loudest voice, the most cruel derision or worse, the indifference of apathy. 

Big money media is so dominant over every screen, from big screens to cell-phones, that they are literally “authoring” – “dictating” not just our thoughts, but the very process of thinking. We need new common sense thinking and action addressing culture-making by independent artists – and also – the mechanics of why we need to vote for ourselves.

The independent artist, unowned, like a public servant who does not answer to big money, is never beholden to big money corporate conglomerates 

and therefore represents the deep “infrastructure” of the soul of our nation, 

without which, we collapse deeper into the transactional, corporate, oligarchical  reality show culture that got us where we are today. 

So Let’s make the possibility of a better tomorrow possible. “

Below is a copy of the interview I share tonight with utmost respect for all those fighting for democracy around the world and at home in America.

As an artist I already pledged long ago to cherish, honor, love and never squander the freedoms of democracy. That’s between me and my goddesses.

It’s my job to contribute to woven culture in the name of our democracy.

I defy any toxic entity tampering with our mother-earth given rights to life, liberty and YES, GODDESS BLESS the pursuit of happiness. Liberte , Equalite, Fraternite and in all my work, I have added :

Soeurorite too –

not just for humans, but for ALL living beings on our Blue Planet, Mama Earth, including the sea-life populating approximately 75% of our swirling, twirling, soaring swimming pool planet. “

2022 Interview : Victoria G interviews Cali Lili :

What inspired you to become an actor? 

“It seems as though it’s always been a feeling so natural with me, something I’m meant to do, even though nobody in my family of origin works in the arts. In fact,  most of them are scientist / mathematician types and definitely did not want me to do this, but this feeling was always within me asking to come out .   

 At first, I expressed that feeling through dance scholarships in New York, so my work began with rhythm, movement , light and then naturally morphed into theater … more awards and scholarships …

I think it’s better to pursue something within the scope of your mastery even though the “marketplace” doesn’t always reward the best qualified… I feel it’s still a better way of life — to pursue something I have a genuine authentic facility / mastery with — because even when you’re good – it’s a very challenging industry…

In thinking about it now, for me, it seems to be a passion to communicate to others, through a sacred craft and medium, whether it be theater or film or music – to communicate through my humanity to your humanity and also, my love of wildlife, nature, especially sea-life and oceans is part of what always inspires me —

 that’s why some of my company Cali Lili Indies ™️  trademark slogans include :  “ pictures words music in motion ™️“ “handmade to make a difference “™️ & Cutting Edge Of The Pacific ™️” 

BTW There’s actually a “craft” to acting & I feel that’s often conveniently forgotten in exchange for the “trade” or “commerce” …?

– that’s something I’ve always been personally inspired by – to improve my craft. In my opinion it can’t be taught, only worked at – with dedication and for genuinely personal reasons. 

My desire to connect with other humans, and living creatures on this blue planet, through the medium that ‘downloads’ life on film / music / publishing – in order to ‘upload’ life for each other …

… and ultimately, make life better some-how, even if it’s just having fun, admiring beauty, sharing a moment in time and …

… that’s why, when I graduated at a very young age with a Masters’ Degree from NYU 

  • I have a Masters Degree but not a high school diploma lol because I was skipped several grades and then got a scholarship to NYU before I finished high school – that’s why I refer to myself as a ‘runaway with scholarship’

and found out there was a lack of opportunity for delicious roles, I decided to start my own sustainable blue-green-space-studio to make sustainable movies, albums and books – TinyMultiMedia™️  exploring themes that deal with social justice, women’s and girls’ rights, lgbtq rights, interracial and multicultural rights — and equally urgent : climate / environmental / wildlife, sealife issues  … 

… the first sustainable movie and album we released “eVe N’god this female is not yet rated”  was made with an all female mixed orientation film crew and the album was made with a mixed gender mixed orientation music team … 

the project is an Oscars 2020 official contender  … and we’re really proud of it … now working on the next one!  “ cali lili 

Who are your acting inspirations?

SO MANY !!!!!!

 From so many eras … I’m a cinema – lover and I love every era … 

Here’s a few but I know I’m missing some … there’s so many!!!! 

Cate Blanchett, Emily Blunt, Jennifer Beals, Halle Berry, Whitney Houston, Viola Davis, Marion Cotillard, Sidney Poitier, Amy Adams, Marlon Brando, Eva Marie Saint, Gregory Peck, Viola Davis, George Clooney, Denzel Washington , Benedict Cumberbatch, Ryan Gosling, Jean Arthur, Elizabeth Taylor, Meryl Streep, Jane Fonda,  Rosalind Russel, Mahalia Jackson, Katherine Hepburn, Ingrid Bergman, Audrey Hepburn, Vivien Leigh, Joan Crawford, Gary Cooper , James Stewart, Spencer Tracy, Marilyn Monroe , Henry Fonda , Cary Grant,  Robert Redford , Paul Newman,  Claude Rains, And – sincerely, not just because he’s my partner, Wings Hauser.

What is your favorite thing about acting?

Freedom to PLAY and HAVE

 FUN ! 

What was your first acting job?

A student film version of a one-woman Eugene O’Neill play. 

What is your favorite project you have ever done?

“eVe N’god this female is not yet rated “ !

We hope your readers will not only see the movie and hear the album –  but also add even more positive reviews and ratings to the ones we’ve already got !  

That’ll really help the next project! 

We really did make this movie and album to reach out to people and as an all female crew that was dealing with LGBTQ issues and interracial love story climate change and social justice issues we did experience some trolls online so the ratings / reviews and shares from supportive readers will – really mean a lot to us! Especially as we move into the next projects !

What are some qualities you look for in a project?

Freedom to play with some scope of emotion and physicality, to explore something I’ve never thought about or learned about before. Freedom to express something that resonates within me, that I feel capable of translating and shaping into a performance that’s meaningful or fun and entertaining. I want to know that I can deliver for the director / crew / team / audience with my whole heart and skill set. So I look for space to play and an avenue to deliver for the project as a whole. 

Which character that you have played so far has been the most similar to you?

I haven’t played all that many characters but a bit of “me” is in them all … but I’d have to say that “eVe” in “eVe N’god this female is not yet rated” is definitely closest, so far …

How would you describe yourself in three words?

Water. Rhythm. Love. 

What are your social media handles?

What are three qualities every actor should have?

Whoa, I would not presume to say … I think we all have our own path …

Do you have any advice for an aspiring actor?

Breathe … try to understand why you are doing what you do … 

What’s next for you?

I’m already working on the next music video – as well as my next feature length movie and album ! 

We won’t be releasing details about those for a while, but my crew and I are SO PUMPED!

I’m ALSO super excited for the upcoming release of a new single, which is a revisited version of one of the songs on my debut album / soundtrack “ this female is not yet rated.” 

I was hired by award winning producers to sing the title track on camera – for their documentary –  a VERY cool documentary they are making about my partner, Wings Hauser. It’s called “Wings Hauser Working Class Actor “ 

We shot the recording session at the legendary “Nightbird Studios” at the Sunset Marquis – in Hollywood. That studio is AWESOME and has got such an amazing Rock N’ Roll history that I could literally feel it in my body – so many people have recorded there (Rhianna, Aretha, Dylan, Lennon, Blondie !!!!! So many more )

It was a MAGICAL recording session –  complete with unexpected lightning and thunder storm outside  ! 

I can’t wait to share that song !!!!! 

RAPID FIRE QUESTIONS

Who is a director you would love to work with?

SO MANY !!!!!!!

George Clooney , Jodie Foster , Jonah Hill , Denzel Washington, Spike Lee, Angelina Jolie, Jordan Peele, Barry Jenkins,  Dylan Kidd , Don Cheadle, Spike Jonze,  Damien Chazelle,  Jason Segel , Barbara Streisand, Sofia Coppola, Kathryn Bigelow, John Singleton, Ava Duvernay,  Casey Affleck , David Fincher , Craig Gillespie , Lee Daniels, Robert Townsend,

 Adam McKay, Jon Favreau, Doug Limon, John Madden,

And there are many more – !!!!!!

What is something you can’t live without?

WATER  – AIR –  LOVE 

What is your biggest pet peeve?

Unkindness of any kind. 

Do you have any hidden talents?

Lol, good question, I’ll go look for some and get back to you – … 

Do you play any instruments?

My voice is my primary musical  instrument, along with my body in rhythm as far as performance … and I am a pretty good percussionist, I love all kinds of intercultural percussion instruments … 

What is your favorite pastime?

Hmm… I don’t really get the concept of “pastime” – I do love being in the ocean, surfing, body surfing, body-boarding and yet I just always love what I’m doing and I have a busy schedule – I just really love what I do 

Do you have any pets?

My Kitty. We rescued him and he’s just awesome. He is like my 1st AD or my show runner – he runs my schedule and – I’m HIS “comfort animal.”

Freedom to play with some scope of emotion and physicality, to explore something I’ve never thought about or learned about before. Freedom to express something that resonates within me, that I feel capable of translating and shaping into a performance that’s meaningful or fun and entertaining. I want to know that I can deliver for the director / crew / team / audience with my whole heart and skill set. So I look for space to play and an avenue to deliver for the project as a whole. 

Which character that you have played so far has been the most similar to you?

I haven’t played all that many characters but a bit of “me” is in them all … but I’d have to say that “eVe” in “eVe N’god this female is not yet rated” is definitely closest, so far …

How would you describe yourself in three words?

Water. Rhythm. Love. 

What are your social media handles?

What are three qualities every actor should have?

Whoa, I would not presume to say … I think we all have our own path …

Do you have any advice for an aspiring actor?

Breathe … try to understand why you are doing what you do … 

What’s next for you?

I’m already working on the next music video – as well as my next feature length movie and album ! 

We won’t be releasing details about those for a while, but my crew and I are SO PUMPED!

I’m ALSO super excited for the upcoming release of a new single, which is a revisited version of one of the songs on my debut album / soundtrack “ this female is not yet rated.” 

I was hired by award winning producers to sing the title track on camera – for their documentary –  a VERY cool documentary they are making about my partner, Wings Hauser. It’s called “Wings Hauser Working Class Actor “ 

We shot the recording session at the legendary “Nightbird Studios” at the Sunset Marquis – in Hollywood. That studio is AWESOME and has got such an amazing Rock N’ Roll history that I could literally feel it in my body – so many people have recorded there (Rhianna, Aretha, Dylan, Lennon, Blondie !!!!! So many more )

It was a MAGICAL recording session –  complete with unexpected lightning and thunder storm outside  ! 

I can’t wait to share that song !!!!!

My Kitty. We rescued him and he’s just awesome. He is like my 1st AD or my show runner – he runs my schedule and – I’m HIS “comfort animal.”

I debated posting this 2022 interview about my film & music work during this crucial moment in global democracy .

Then I noticed how often I mention the word “freedom” in the interview .

My education in Liberal Arts was cupids’ arrow into the heart of culture I weave with purpose in defiance of tyranny.

Dear World let us join hands to save our planet, by saving our brothers and sisters in Ukraine and everywhere brutality seeks to harm civilization and every living creature on our blue planet mother earth.

So here it is, with some added thoughts.

Victoria G Interviews Cali Lili – Wattpad

https://www.wattpad.com/story/304200211-victoria-g-interviews-cali-lili

Below is a copy of the interview I share tonight with utmost respect for all those fighting for democracy around the world and at home in America.

As an artist I already pledged long ago to cherish, honor, love and never squander the freedoms of democracy. That’s between me and my goddesses.

It’s my job to contribute to woven culture in the name of our democracy.

I defy any toxic entity tampering with our mother-earth given rights to life, liberty and YES, GODDESS BLESS the pursuit of happiness. Liberte , Equalite, Fraternite and in all my work, I have added :

Soeurorite too –

not just for humans, but for ALL living beings on our Blue Planet, Mama Earth, including the sea-life populating approximately 75% of our swirling, twirling, soaring swimming pool planet. “

********************************************

2022 Interview : Victoria G interviews Cali Lili :

What inspired you to become an actor? 

“It seems as though it’s always been a feeling so natural with me, something I’m meant to do, even though nobody in my family of origin works in the arts. In fact,  most of them are scientist / mathematician types and definitely did not want me to do this, but this feeling was always within me asking to come out .   

 At first, I expressed that feeling through dance scholarships in New York, so my work began with rhythm, movement , light and then naturally morphed into theater … more awards and scholarships …

I think it’s better to pursue something within the scope of your mastery even though the “marketplace” doesn’t always reward the best qualified… I feel it’s still a better way of life — to pursue something I have a genuine authentic facility / mastery with — because even when you’re good – it’s a very challenging industry…

In thinking about it now, for me, it seems to be a passion to communicate to others, through a sacred craft and medium, whether it be theater or film or music – to communicate through my humanity to your humanity and also, my love of wildlife, nature, especially sea-life and oceans is part of what always inspires me —

 that’s why some of my company Cali Lili Indies ™️  trademark slogans include :  “ pictures words music in motion ™️“ “handmade to make a difference “™️ & Cutting Edge Of The Pacific ™️” 

BTW There’s actually a “craft” to acting & I feel that’s often conveniently forgotten in exchange for the “trade” or “commerce” …?

– that’s something I’ve always been personally inspired by – to improve my craft. In my opinion it can’t be taught, only worked at – with dedication and for genuinely personal reasons. 

My desire to connect with other humans, and living creatures on this blue planet, through the medium that ‘downloads’ life on film / music / publishing – in order to ‘upload’ life for each other …

… and ultimately, make life better some-how, even if it’s just having fun, admiring beauty, sharing a moment in time and …

… that’s why, when I graduated at a very young age with a Masters’ Degree from NYU 

  • I have a Masters Degree but not a high school diploma lol because I was skipped several grades and then got a scholarship to NYU before I finished high school – that’s why I refer to myself as a ‘runaway with scholarship’

and found out there was a lack of opportunity for delicious roles, I decided to start my own sustainable blue-green-space-studio to make sustainable movies, albums and books – TinyMultiMedia™️  exploring themes that deal with social justice, women’s and girls’ rights, lgbtq rights, interracial and multicultural rights — and equally urgent : climate / environmental / wildlife, sealife issues  … 

… the first sustainable movie and album we released “eVe N’god this female is not yet rated”  was made with an all female mixed orientation film crew and the album was made with a mixed gender mixed orientation music team … 

the project is an Oscars 2020 official contender  … and we’re really proud of it … now working on the next one!  “ cali lili 

Who are your acting inspirations?

SO MANY !!!!!!

 From so many eras … I’m a cinema – lover and I love every era … 

Here’s a few but I know I’m missing some … there’s so many!!!! 

Cate Blanchett, Emily Blunt, Jennifer Beals, Halle Berry, Whitney Houston, Viola Davis, Marion Cotillard, Sidney Poitier, Amy Adams, Marlon Brando, Eva Marie Saint, Gregory Peck, Viola Davis, George Clooney, Denzel Washington , Benedict Cumberbatch, Ryan Gosling, Jean Arthur, Elizabeth Taylor, Meryl Streep, Jane Fonda,  Rosalind Russel, Mahalia Jackson, Katherine Hepburn, Ingrid Bergman, Audrey Hepburn, Vivien Leigh, Joan Crawford, Gary Cooper , James Stewart, Spencer Tracy, Marilyn Monroe , Henry Fonda , Cary Grant,  Robert Redford , Paul Newman,  Claude Rains, And – sincerely, not just because he’s my partner, Wings Hauser.

What is your favorite thing about acting?

Freedom to PLAY and HAVE

 FUN ! 

What was your first acting job?

A student film version of a one-woman Eugene O’Neill play. 

What is your favorite project you have ever done?

“eVe N’god this female is not yet rated “ !

We hope your readers will not only see the movie and hear the album –  but also add even more positive reviews and ratings to the ones we’ve already got !  

That’ll really help the next project! 

We really did make this movie and album to reach out to people and as an all female crew that was dealing with LGBTQ issues and interracial love story climate change and social justice issues we did experience some trolls online so the ratings / reviews and shares from supportive readers will – really mean a lot to us! Especially as we move into the next projects !

Culture

is

Nutrition Meets Environment ™ :

We Consume it

+ sometimes unwittingly,  like the air we breathe, by OSMOSIS :

If You Love Movies + Music : Please ReadTheIndieLabel™ + Ask : WhatsInYourIndie™

If you love your basic democratic freedoms : please support authentic journalism, journalists, a free press + ASK QUESTIONS – like – who’s lobbying in your legislature, and who benefits from legislation?

We Consume Culture + a sometimes it’s OSMOSIS.

As an indie artist – I ask movie + music lovers to SupportTheARTSustainTheARTisT ™

CureAteFoYoSelf™ so many “curators” are working with big money sources of content to make their “picks” that it’s pointless to consider it “curating” especially when we are living in a far more diverse 21st Century – where – so-called “curating” amounts to gate-keeping – when we CAN + SHOULD discover on our own – it’s SO MUCH MORE FUN!

Reading ‘the indie label’ is not unlike reading a nutrition label.

A Sacred Space :

SupportTheARTSustainTheARTisT™

Neighborhoods built from scratch by dedicated, caring, working people, are – like great relationships and also like great works of art / craft made by artisans in communion with culture – a ‘sacred space’ – which must not be violated by the pale glow of so-called ‘progress’ fueled by the zero-sum games of bottom-line parasitical leeches : cultural imposters – bottom-feeders + 1%er top-slurpers .

The 21st century dedicated working class indie artist – like 21st century – middle-class/working class humanity –

– could become an Endangered Species “© together – if we don’t recognize that GentrificationOfCulture ™© is a problem for us both.

It’s not solved with Publicity Stunts + gimmicks –  the kinds of ‘ charity / charities employed mainly to bestow grace on the Charity-Giver and to  absolve them of their quiet Economic Sins –

When ” citizens united” was passed by the ” scotus corporate subsidiary” they opened the door for future elimination of individual human innovation – to be gentrified by corporate-owned “Artificial Intelligence” –

If successful – this would amount to a full scale attack on free-thinking, free-living individual human “genius” (for lack of a better term) – in favor of a “wholly owned subsidiary / subsidized ” form of “genius” – only allowed to see “daylight” once fully patented by the corporation who ultimately “owned” it outright through astronomical – financially – subsidized legal means. Corporate welfare – seeking to eliminate human welfare (unless it serves the corporation).

– ‘these quiet crimes’ referenced in my song ‘4the9th™’ / ForTheNinth™© – about hurricane Katrina in New Orleans are the ‘quiet discrimination’ –

are the silent marauders sowing seeds, like harmful weeds + even more harmful pesticides, like both – virus and it’s over prescribed antibiotic – culminating in the overgrowth and dissemination of an antibiotic-resistant ‘strain’ of an ongoing economic discrimination virus –

– a virus fueled by it’s De-Nihil-ISM™ siblings – racism, sexism, homophobia, ageism , climate denial – where money doesn’t just ‘talk’ – it screams obscenities – and destroys culture + more importantly – it destroys the living artist.

What’s worse is that some of these Intruders – dare to Don themselves, Cloak themselves in the mantle of ‘artist’ – twice insulting the artist + the culture she serves, the culture she weaves, the culture with which she is interdependent.

Sometimes well-meaning, often self-serving “entertainment reporters” / “curators” ( pronounced cure-haters at our studio) who sometimes come in the form of what is often referred to as ‘ arts + culture journalists’ whether they work for high-brow or low-brow publications / media – are often entitled dilettantes / trust-fund babies themselves – who contribute to the so called “curator class” and either detest us because they can’t make art themselves – or simply do NOT understand or care about the real – flesh and blood and guts – and life of an artist –

These “culture-vultures are virulent enablers of this GentrificationOfCulture ™ – and are literally destroying the Culture – and more importantly – the living breathing artist who needs the Culture as much as we need oxygen. Guys – you don’t get it – and I’ll continue to try – to explain.

De-Nihil-ISM™ + GentrificationOfCulture™ ColonializationOfCulture™ – are cure-ated in a healing medicinal born of RESPECT +  self-determination –

It’s about sharing not only the wealth but also the opportunity –

#WhatsInYourIndie™ :

It’s something Audiences – cinephiles and audiophiles alike – can be aware of when ever we purchase movies + music —

The term “indie” is much appropriated and it’s not a matter of race or gender- it’s about – asking the same questions we ask of our nutrition – who made it?

Did some Corporate entity swoop in and find a malleable “candidate” ( as is done in politics) to mold and shape into the “image” of “what they tell us – we the people – want”?

ReadTheIndieLabel™

Just as with nutrition AND with voting – if we all take a moment to “read the ingredients” of who made the Culture we “consume” — and seek out our own “Van Gogh”- support those of us who have authentically dedicated our lives to crafting culture – we would then continue the great tradition of creating Culture together – a relationship between Audiences and professional “culture – crafters “™©-

and together we would pushback AGAINST the Corporate dominance over us ALL – because we are in the same boat.

We need to support the professional artist in media, movies , music, books – in their daily dedication —

getting a fair shot but ALSO what’s getting discarded in many industries and economies : the waning respect and growing indifference to the so called “middle class” which IS the so called “working class.”It’s about respect due – for merit as well as professionalism and dedication of one’s life to either a craft — or just as worthy – any profession – any job done well.


The Professional Artist who is an Authentic Independent Artist – is quite discernible by anyone paying attention to the “nutrition label” – it’s often someone who’s – not ‘signed’ – not ‘owned’ – not ‘in the club’ – or simply – unwilling to follow club-rules but also unwilling to sacrifice the wellness of her Culture for personal gain or ego. She’s – a crafts-person – and viewers + listeners should consider supporting the Authentic Indie Artist —

while corporate middle-persons should support + respecting those who’ve dedicated years to that craft – 

not stand ‘in the middle’ of an artist’s relationship with her listeners + viewers – with your hand out, nor your tongue – slurping off the top –


because

THAT’S

a SACRED SPACE . “©
