Revolution & Love.
That's right people. I said revolution and love. You people probably think that the two have nothing to do with each other. That they are completely separate things. You probably think that revolution is all about fighting the man. About slogans and marching and protesting stuff. About avoiding regular employment and tree hugging and wearing t-shirts with Che Guevara on them. Well, you couldn't be more wrong. It's so much more. And there's a podcast that proves my point. It's called Join the Resistance: Fall in Love. And you can find it at the link we have graciously provided. You can also find it by searching for it under podcasts on iTunes. Be forewarned that it contains a little bit of sexual content, but hey folks, I mean it's about love. And there's a little bit of violence, and that's not the revolution part because we believe in non-violent revolution. I won't leave all my impressions of it at this time because I don't want to prejudice you in any way or give out any spoilers. But it is worth seeing, so I share it with you. Because that's what we're all about here at A Revolution of One. Sharing. And revolution. And love....

Here's a blurb about the short film from
Directed by the 2003 City of Atlanta Emerging Award Recipient, Franklin Lopez. Narrated by Indigo Girl Amy Ray, this critically acclaimed short is inspired by the book ''Days of War, Nights of Love'' ''Chapter L is for Love'' by the Crimethinc Ex-Workers Collective ( This film narrates this chapter and visually tells a story.

The story is about two couples. One who followed the path that will most likely please society and the other too passionate about life to care what anyone thinks.

The film has reached cult status and has been downloaded over 30,000 times in over 50 countries worldwide. Unofficial screenings are in the hundreds and translated bootlegs of the film have been seen as far as Indonesia
