Freegantown Video

“The dumpsters are never empty in Freegantown, Freegantown, Freegantown.” Is the refrain from the first musical number in this epic piece of Twin Oaks Children’s theater.

Freegantown cast after the second and last performance. With dumpster dive tulips.

This short gem was captured in a low resolution video.  But you can get the witty dialog (including the pitch for more bandwidth).  It should be pointed out that Rowan (Tall Guy) is playing a role inspired by me, or at least inspired by my head-achy guests (from Nero who burned part of Acorn, to Jason who drove some people a bit crazy).

Willow explains how the freegans can eat overpriced organic food from Traitor Joes.

Dark Star (Willow) explains how the freegans can eat overpriced organic food from Traitor Joes, when the dumpsters are empty.

As background, freegan is a dietary preference which chooses to prioritize recovered food (typically from dumpsters, but it could be other places where it has been discarded like farmers markets) over other dietary constraints.  The root is from “free”, which is usual cost of dumpstered and other recovered foods.  More radical freegan philosophies go well beyond free food and boycott the entire money economy.

    The character that Rowan plays is not at all inspired by you. In fact, if I were to write you into a play, the character would be far less innocent and devoid of agenda. Really Pax, your ego runs unchecked these days.
