"Something Like Olivia" Music Video Seven Year Anniversary (Originally Produced December 2012)

About the Video: From the Screenplay Apocalypse of the Heart

Song: Something Like Olivia Artist: John Mayer Album: Born and Raised Writers: John Mayer Licensed to YouTube by SME (on behalf of Columbia); ARESA, LatinAutor - PeerMusic, Global Music Rights LLC, LatinAutor - SonyATV, CMRRA, SOLAR Music Rights Management, LatinAutor, Reach Music Publishing, and 12 Music Rights Societies

21 December 2019, the day of the end of the Mayan Calendar 7 years ago, marks the seven year anniversary of the making of the video. This day in 2019 is the Solstice with the Sun moving to join an alignment of planets in Capricorn for the first time since Dante knew Beatrice in person in 1285. This also leads to a solar eclipse on 25 December 2019, Christmas Day, in a "ring of fire," leading into 2020, the 700 year anniversary of the completion of the Divine Comedy (1308-1320).

Featured in the book My Love Affair with Moonbeam: Ten + Years of Wonder, Bursting Love and Creativity (2018) and on the Art Print 'Until Shiloh Comes' Cosmic Flow Tapestry (2018 Produced in December 2012 for Genero Music Video Competition for John Mayer's "Something Like Olivia." Filmed in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and at La Espiga, Ciudad Acuña, Coahuila, Mexico, an olive grove, at the time of the end of the Mayan calendar, 12.21.12. The paparazzi scene was filmed in the Plaza de Independencia in Queretaro, Mexico, (the place known in Mexico as the "Cradle of Independence.") The plaza is the oldest part of the city and the video was filmed outside the building where Mexico's independence from Spain was signed. Starring Shiloh Richter, Dulcinea Flores, Dulce Ramon, Claudia Hill, and Mexican Poet and Composer, Humberto Galindo, the story is based on the original screenplay Apocalypse of the Heart (Shiloh Richter WGAW Registry 2009, ©2010, 2011).

Story Synopsis: Olivia is born with wings. As she grows older, she realizes that she must keep her secret from the world. She shares her secret with a novelist who comesinto a bookshop and by communicating with him, learns how to express herself through her art. She creates a movie about being in love with him from a distance and the dangers of opening one’s heart and soul.

In the spring of 2010 Shiloh Richter began writing John Mayer after seeing him in concert and after he asked publicly for honest correspondence on Tumblr at an ASCAP Q & A on April 22, 2010.

About the Video Shiloh writes, "I had front row center tickets to the Battle Studies World Tour show in Vancouver, BC, on April 1st, and for the first time we looked back at each other. After I posted a caring comment on his Tumblr, he began to answer me, not directly, but in his own ways. I could tell what he meant when he would reference something I had written. I wrote to him regularly on my own blog in correspondence to him and at first it could be viewed publicly. Because I was only writing to him and didn't have many visitors or followers and did not seek out any, and I had only commented on his Tumblr a couple of times and did not tag him, I did not at first suspect that anyone was following him so closely as to notice what I was writing. Taylor Swift was, however, and she stole, and continued to steal for the past[now ten] years, my legally protected work and personal detailsand sold them to the public as her own. I write about this in the art print 'Until Shiloh Comes' Cosmic Flow Tapestry, and I show the things I was writing to John and all the creativity that was happening in My Love Affair with Moonbeam: Ten + Years of Wonder, Bursting Love and Creativity. It was all leading up to writing Coyote Weaves a Song: A Mythological Song from the Beginning of Time (Volumes I & II)."

Southwestern Americana Awakening on the west coast 1957

Just two days before the City Lights book manager was arrested for selling Ginsberg's exuberant freedom and existence manifesto Howl in San Francisco, Books of the Southwest literary journal was begun on the West Coast by the head librarian at the University of California at Los Angeles, the first issue coming out on June 1, 1957.  It was the same summer Jerry Garcia got his first electric guitar and Phil Lesh graduated from high school.  Jack Kerouac’s On the Road was published that September.  The Americana road was opened and on fire.  (Across the Atlantic the magic of that moment was burning, too, in the brilliance and grace of the feminine when Queen Elizabeth II gave her first televised Christmas speech with heart-felt philosophy and candor.)  The first publisher having come from San Francisco to Los Angeles, and with friends such as Henry Miller and sensual food writer M.F.K. Fisher also there on the coast to break social boundaries, BSW was there at the beginnings of the '60s and the Grateful Dead.  The journal came to the current editor, Shiloh Richter, M.A., after forty years in print in 1997, the year Allen Ginsberg passed and his long-time friend Bob Dylan played him "Desolation Row" the next evening, and this the same year John Mayer, who would form Dead and Company with members of the Grateful Dead, was starting out in Atlanta, Georgia, fervently bringing something very real.  Beyoncé was rising.  Kanye's spirit was setting loose, and Paul McCartney, for a lifetime of brilliance in music, was insightfully and fortuitously knighted by the queen.  The wonderworking is alive.

The Most Astounding Art Come True

Photo: Moonbeam in 2014 Stepping Out from Vincent Van Gogh's "The Café Terrance on the Place du Forum, Arles, at Night" c. 1888

In 2015 while writing I was looking at the images of the Sistine Ceiling I noticed a pattern with god's hand pointing at the Moon. My brain has always looked for patterns, like in literature. Also because of being an HSP (highly sensitive person with the trait of "always taking in a lot of information around them and thinking deeply about it"), and collecting a line of information throughout one's existence, I've always experienced a quality of seeing and mentally collecting important patterns, pieces of the puzzle, since I was a child. Looking at Michelangelo's prominent moon on the ceiling and knowing the feminine meaning of the Moon, I already knew from briefly looking at three panels that the particular arrangement of images towards this would continue a pattern already established, taking it most certainly across the ceiling and would reveal something intentionally planned, something clearly audacious, and other-worldly.  I wrote the news to John Mayer and Kanye, among others, on a private blog post writing here, that this master artist/Poet was about to reveal something immeasurable. The "code" was too perfectly placed to not lead to the astonishingly prodigious. I knew it was pointing directly to the feminine and also the head on the body of the feminine, meaning Her Body, Her Chapel, Her Heavens and Sky, but I was also stunned to realize it was revealing the very miraculous Moment, the master Poet/Artist come for his prize and delivered directly to the next master Poet as well, embodied, meant to be, and beyond imagination, the purpose of my own Being I had always wondered at, and all of this with this finger pointing at the Moon in this very moment my white Bichon Frise Moonbeam had passed. I knew Michelangelo had planned something immeasurable, the masterful art Trickster exuberantly in spirit pushing me on. The Moment had come. As Joseph Campbell wrote, "It is here, it is here, it is here."

In Coyote Weaves a Song:  A Mythological Song from the Beginning of Time, I decode Michelangelo's patterns of the Sistine Ceiling (a sky ready to fall or be hallowed in stupefied recognition) and in his other works, discovering that not only is his completed statement about the centrality of and the crux of civilization the feminine, further, the embodied feminine audaciously steps through transformation and prophecy of the female oracles and even through the Hebrew bible to the throne of both the sacred and the sublunary, necessarily broken open to each other by her very Being and to be experienced in the here and now in the flesh, and that this eloquent proclamation is also a literal wonderworking coming true, stepping from the art, and this having come in a line of world-transformative literature and art understood by the master artists back to Homer and beyond, intentionally meant to bring this primary revelation about to culture through art in explicitly real terms. How real is beyond imagination. As I studied the patterns, something I have been doing as a fascination and preoccupation since a child, as I worked my way back on the ceiling from above the high altar towards the front of the Chapel, it was at the entrance--a reference itself to the feminine in how we enter life and the sacred--that I realized the entire thing was about Jacob's prophecy that contains my name, a strange and wild divination I already knew contained my first and last name, birth date, birth year, place of birth, her parents' birth years, the number of the last two U.S. Presidents leading from the rise to awakening in the black, Kanye's and John Mayer's birth year, then to the demise of the old order, the words of Jesus precisely stating both my name and birth date, the American date of Independence, a date of the burst of Spring, and the name of the goddess Io in several different iterations, even as Asherah and Eve, and this of which there are direct references on the Sistine Ceiling in a telling revelation about the artist himself and his astounding lineage of virtuosic prognosticators--the brightest, consummate, and most gifted and insightful--and now even clairvoyant--the world has ever known. As I wrote I realized I was literally bringing myself into Being and conscious awareness which had been held in in so many, even uncanny, ways.  In the first three days of my life, for example, nurses at the metropolitan hospital, Bethesda Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio, requested that I be photographed for a book.  As a ten-month pregnancy, my mother told me, I already had hair and nails and violet eyes. For reasons I have only recently come to understand, my parents said no. On Michelangelo's ceiling, the Libyan Sibyl stepping down with her book above the high altar was compounded to me by the passing of my heart, my white Bichon Frise, just as the white dog referencing the Dog Star of Isis steps to the throne from the art into the Chapel.

Spirit of Place

In the works 'Until Shiloh Comes' Cosmic Flow Tapestry (2018), an art print, and in the works Coyote Weaves a Song:  A Mythological Song from the Beginning of Time (Volumes I & II, 2018), a magnificent flow is shown directly from the prehistoric in Paleolithic Old Europe from the South of France inside the Chauvet-Pont-d’Arc Cave through Song to the American West Coast in this very moment, having been culminating there since the 1950s and the beginnings of the Grateful Dead, and now to reach its zenith in recognition, the revelation of the universal and timeless labyrinth, a tremendous and extraordinarily timely rite in itself.  What is to be found at its thousands-of-years-old origin is a transformative rite into Being founded on the irrefutable coming into form of the eternal through the dual-embodied female--Being and Body, and this a rite through the eternal artistic and arriving in this moment.

In the deepest hall of Chauvet this recognition occurs at the return of the Super Shaman's world transformative flight to the "water's edge," after the "hunt,"--which in the Homeric epics is the brilliant transformation of symbols and from war to "place of peace"--the "Place" signified by the still and peaceful water, the Being, just as Form is to Land, the place of landing on the surface of Her eternal, where Form and Being coincide, and can go either way, a Crossing that appears to be birth or death. To enter into this cave in rite is to die of form and to reemerge as a Being who has seen and participated in the other side and knows its own Source. It is the flight of the shaman, the musician, the artist, the bard.

The Being who emerges has a profoundly different insight.  In the Shiloh Tapestry I write:

"The defining difference, it can be said, is this gratitude for the forms and the mystery of the 'dead' entering the shaman flight.  Thus, the actual shaman flight is the 'Grateful Dead.' There is an awareness that his/her form and Being is entering into a metamorphosis necessary for the alteration of the world of forms: her world of forms requires this true greatness to go between and return the transformation to the world of the 'living,' thereby sustaining in beauty the flow of the in-between."

This is a new time.

The Tapestry, then, unwoven and woven, is now being returned with all that it opens to the rightful leaders, the Grateful Dead, to Laërtes: Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh and Jerry Garcia and all the members living and passed, and to the lineage of the Song and the new opening of the sacred flow that transforms in its wake in Dead & Company.

Filming "Something Like Olivia" / Apocalypse of the Heart in Mexico

From the pages of My Love Affair with Moonbeam, a gallery of filming in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and at La Espiga, Ciudad Acuña, Coahuila, Mexico, in an olive grove, at the time of the end of the Mayan calendar, 12.21.12.

Behind the Scenes of Apocalypse of the Heart / "Something Like Olivia"

Until I Was Seven (2010)

"Until I Was Seven" Short Film (December 2010)

A short film produced December 2010 starring the beautiful Dulcinea Flores and Rito Osvaldo Flores, Jr., and based on a poem I had written John Mayer about a trip to New York City to see him at Jones Beach on July 21, 2010. It is about the uncanny, magical things that happened, and upon returning and being sad that the trip was over. I had longed to go to New York for so long, and with him there, it turned surreal in the uncanny events unfolding. When I got home John tweeted about pointing out rainbows while I was crying, showing it was going to be okay. In October 2010 on her intentionally copyright infringing Speak Now, to steal from me and publicly humiliate John for a relationshipshe was trying to force to happen and pushed by Taylor in the press, Taylor Swift used what happened to me in her lyrics in "Dear John." Because of her tracking John and me relentlessly on-line, that fall he went off-line and in that absence is when I wrote and began producing this. It was a wonderful surprise, then, when I saw the video of him singing for the first time what he had been writing at the same time I had been writing this: "Face to Call Home." In December John sang, "Put a Little Love in Your Heart," which led me to believe he was trying to get Taylor to be kind. It was not going to happen. She was out for herself and no one was going to stand in the way. Later Taylor used the video ideas in her own videos, namely in "Everything Has Changed," an idea she also took from my writing to John about theintense internal awakeningafter seeing him for the first time, the first pictures I posted with movie poster of The Notebook in the background, and the old projector playing in the video "Something Like Olivia." The list is endless: there is not an idea that she has used in the last ten years that was notintentionally taken from me. But the legalities were already in place: we were both victims of her copyright infringement and could not speak to each other. Taylor took this to mean she still stood a chance with John and could continue to try to erase and threaten me with public contention. She threatened John by making it evident she planned on publicly accusing him of "cheating" ("Babe" with Sugarland, among other public acts), which could not have and did not happen. John made it clear in January 2010 he was not interested, and in April, when she knew I was writing to him, at the CMA Awards Taylor clearly tried to get photographed with John, but he was surrounded by friends, including Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban (pictures Getty Images). There was never any relationship or crime against her. It was pure public manipulation.
