Following the success of their first double Grammy nominated film & album, What About Me? Is the latest offering from 1 Giant Leap. This visionary project took Jamie Catto and Duncan Bridge-man to over 50 locations as they explore through music, the complexities of human nature on a global scale, and aims to reveal how we are all connected through our creativity and beliefs, but most of all through our madness. Covering universal topics such as God, Sex, Death and Money, What About Me? features an incredibly diverse collection of collaborators from Noam Chomsky to Will Young, Maxi Jazz to Tim Robbins, Billy Connolly to Michael Stipe, Eckhart Tolle to Baaba Mal, among many others.

 

The vision of the sequel to Grammy nominated 1Giant Leap album and film 'What About Me?" is to illustrate human insanity. It shows how insane we really all are; how we're needy in relationships, insatiable in desire, wounded by birth, avoiding all pain with happy pills and unable to stop think-ing.

 

It features many individuals but especially: Eckhart Tolle, Noam Chomsky, Tim Robbins, Carlos Santana, Michael Stipe, Tom Robbins

[First Pre-view ever of Craig King's new documentary work in progress. 'Here We Grow' – a documentary on the food industry.]

 

The food documentary, 'Here We Grow', was born out of one man's desire to break the limitations of the retail food world and to help change the way people think about food and wellness. The documentary intends to explore the state of our food supply and help educate people to live healthier, more wholesome lives through socially responsible food choices. The film is intended to raise awareness nationwide through inspirational interviews and stories that will capture the passion and drive of a diverse group of individuals.

About Us

What is the Grateful Web?

The Grateful Web is all about you:  fans, bands, representatives, venues, stores and everyone in between. We provide the platform and you provide the stories through your reviews, pictures and videos.  Whether you have a single comment to share or a whole lot to say, your contribution is welcomed, as we all improve our lives through sharing experiences and music.  Though the Grateful Dead is no longer around, their legacy remains strong, and we are here to celebrate and explore the world through this lens.

How did it begin?

The Grateful Web was launched in June of 1995 by two brothers in a Wyckoff, New Jersey basement.   Mike Moran had just graduated from college and was commuting from the New Jersey suburbs to New York City, working for his older brother, Barney Moran.   Barney has since gone in a new direction, leaving Mike, the staff and the Grateful Web community to keep on keeping on.

Now, almost 15 years later, our evolution continues. With much help from friends such as Aaron Dietrich, we are the stewards of the Grateful Web.  With your help and continued enthusiastic support, we will keep working to make the experience as personal, rewarding and interactive as possible.

What do you guys do?

We provide a space for music fans of all genres to come together and share parts of their life that interest them.  By visiting the site, you will find the most up-to-the minute band information, concert reviews and press releases, as well as political and environment news. We are your best source for all great music that doesn't fit neatly into any one category. Though the site name itself is based on the Grateful Dead, we are involved in all different genres of music -- like the guys from our namesake, we try to stay just as diverse and open-minded. We follow anything and everything in the spirit left behind by the Grateful Dead… influences, inspirees and more.  The site is as diverse as its users, because it is a direct outgrowth of them...of you.  We let our users build the site, direct the site, and ultimately become the site.

The Grateful Web encourages you to submit your concert reviews, comments, stories, pictures, videos and anything else you would like to share…and share it we will!  We want you to create the site.  We are offering up the tools, but it is up to you to use your creativity and passion to help us tell the story.

And the coolest part...

Since our content is largely user generated, our illustrious writers, photographers, and storytellers are the guys and gals you see at shows.  We're are simply fans of the same shows, the same tunes and same good vibes as you are. We all love the music and the message, and that is why we are here.  When you join our network, not only do you become part of the very first hippie online community, but also part of an organic experiment, sprung from a New Jersey basement in 1995 and morphed into the internet site full of music and life that you see today.

A global opinion about War...

- for the Grateful Web

Rome claimed the biggest turnout - 1 million protesters. In London, at least 750,000 people demonstrated in what police called the city's largest demonstration ever. Spanish police gauged the Madrid turnout at 660,000. More than 70,000 people marched in Amsterdam in the largest Netherlands demonstration since anti-nuclear rallies of the 1980s. Berlin Germany estimates between 300,000 to 500,000 war protestors. Paris France was estimated to have had about 100,000. Police estimated that 60,000 turned out in Oslo, Norway; 50,000 in bitter cold in Brussels, Belgium; and about 35,000 in frigid Stockholm, Sweden.

About 80,000 marched in Dublin, Ireland. Crowds were estimated at 60,000 in Seville, Spain; 40,000 in Bern, Switzerland; 30,000 in Glasgow, Scotland; 25,000 in Copenhagen, Denmark; 15,000 in Vienna, Austria; more than 20,000 in Montreal and 15,000 in Toronto; 5,000 in Cape Town and 4,000 in Johannesburg in South Africa; 5,000 in Tokyo; and 2,000 in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

More than 2,000 marched to the federal building from campus in Eugene, Oregon. In New York, rally organizers estimated the crowd at up to 500,000 people. City police provided no estimate of the crowd, which stretched 20 blocks deep and two blocks wide. Martin Luther King III:  "Just because you have the biggest gun does not mean you must use it..." Archbishop Desmond Tutu:  "Let America listen to the rest of the world - and the rest of the world is saying, Give the inspectors time.

Martin Sheen (plays a fictitious U.S. president on NBC's The West Wing): "None of us can stop this war. ... There is only one guy that can do that and he lives in the White House." Iraqi immigrant Azam Houle (left Iraq, now lives in Boise, Idaho):  "We seem to think we can destroy a country and then build a democracy... Democracy at gunpoint isn't democracy." Elsie Hinks, London England: "What I would say to Mr. Blair is stop toadying up to the Americans and listen to your own people, us, for once!" Tommaso Palladini, Milan Italy:  "You don't fight terrorism with a preventive war. You fight terrorism by creating more justice in the world."<p>Friedrich Schorlemmer, Berlin Germany:  "We Germans in particular have a duty to do everything to ensure that war - above all, a war of aggression - never again becomes a legitimate means of policy." 10,000 people in Toulouse France all chanted: "They bomb, they exploit, they pollute, enough of this barbarity."

Najjah Attar, a former Syrian cabinet minister: "The U.S. wants to encroach upon our own norms, concepts and principles...They are reminding us of the<br>Nazi and fascist times." A giant banner across The Wall of the Acropoli (Athens, Greece) - ``NATO, U.S. and EU equals War" Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Oregon:  "Many people say we don't have options, but we do have options... The inspectors could be successful without a war."
