REI Presents: Dear Mother Nature, starring Pattie Gonia

November 21, 2019

Watch the music video “Everything to Lose”: https://youtu.be/1_A2bweGHTY

Wyn Wiley (he/him), aka Pattie Gonia (she/her), has made waves over the past year as an environmental advocate drag queen. We follow Wyn as he travels to Hawaii to see first-hand the impacts of careless consumption and plastics on Mother Nature (or as Pattie says, “Mother Natch”). Wyn meets with scientists, non-profit leaders, volunteers, then rallies the Pattie community to lead a beach clean-up. Ultimately, Wyn partners with sustainable fashion designer, Angela Luna, to create three dresses that personify the plastics crisis.

REI Presents: Everything to Lose by Pattie Gonia

Watch the full documentary “Dear Mother Nature”: https://youtu.be/8Yfk0vvVIoU

“Everything to Lose”
by Pattie Gonia

Welcome to the planet, my dears

Wipe your feet, come on in
No more need for coats in your mother’s den
Take a look around
Take a taste of the waste we’ve found

This… is plastic
And this… is tragic
And it’s not going away

So let us sit
At the dinner table in the home we call nature
Come, let’s chat. I have an ice breaker

Are we still lighting candles while the house is burning?

While we throw flame and fight over who is right
our Mother does not bite, her tongue or sit in silence

Oh no, Mother Natch is pissed

You see, a woman knows when she’s been told
When the men in the boardroom think she’s being too bold
Too proud, too outspoken, too much to handle
When she’s been made the doormat instead of the mantle

Is this our message in a plastic bottle?
XO hugs kisses
I’ll try better tomorrow
Day after day we send our regards
Millions and millions of plastic discards

P.S. We don’t give a damn.
But we should really give a damn.

Now I know what you’re saying, “It’s just a drop in the bucket”
“It’s just one plastic bag, one straw, so suck it”
Well suck. On. This.
Right now, there are more plastic pieces in the ocean
than stars in the Milky Way
A billion plastic bags being used every single day

While we dress this mess in political gains and power change and profits made
Our mother says to go upstairs and put on something new
So come out of the closet and put on your boots
We’ve got a s**t ton of work to do.

So Queens, let me be straight
Father Time is ticking on
And what will be left is what we have done

Our mother is dying while we are out living
We must turn the tide from taking to giving
We will make a difference if we dare choose
It’s time that we act….
we’ve got everything to lose

(TICKING OF CLOCK)

Do I Ride Regular or Goofy? || REI

November 19, 2019

Riding regular or goofy on a snowboard has to do with which foot is in front most of the time. If you’re regular, it means your left foot is forward. If you’re goofy, your right foot is forward. In this video, Katie shows you three ways to figure out what your stance is.
