“Today a young man on acid realized

that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration,

that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively,

there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream,

and we are the imagination of ourselves.”

– Bill Hicks –


Inspired by the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy and the election of 2012, David Milone (original co-founder of Ours, and member to the bands Computer Cougar, Teenbeaters and Radio 4) created a beautiful song, and colorfully artistic video together with Lindsay Guttilla. Enjoy.

“The election had most of us thinking about what is most important in life. I suppose elections and campaigns tend to do that. Then the storm hit us here in the tri state area. I realized I wasn’t thinking hard enough about what’s really really really important. My friend the other day said we won’t appreciate things we have again in a few days, after the storm. I guess.” – David Milone
