365 FRIENDS is inspired by Ko Un who writes a poem about every single person he has met in his life, and William Stafford who tried to write a poem every day, and Jim Denomie who painted a painting every day during 2005.

Stirred by these models, Mike Hazard has been posting pictures with stories to Facebook every day for eight years.



To begin every morning thinking good thoughts about a person is a luminous way to start the day.

MEDIA DADA'S MANIFESTO 



This is the text for MEDIA DADA'S MANIFESTO, a video poem by Mike Hazard. It's a true story.

My mother went to Target the other day and when she came home she told my four-year-old daughter where she'd been. "Well, you can't go there any more," said Sonia. My mother asked why not? "Because they bombed all the targets."

I am more and more convinced that war begets war. When we build armaments and fight other nations, we build hostilities. We negate what we pretend to teach our children: Thou shalt not kill.

Think of it. This war must be sanitized. If you and I knew the truth, we might want to stop. I do want it to stop. Stop bombing the targets, whatever they may be.
