Man in the Moon – The MAIN Event…

Or…Picking up where Walt Disney Left Off…

And so it begins…

Man in the Moon

Man in the Moon – a story for all and all time

An event that I reserved a seat for months earlier – with no real idea of what he had in mind. 


Glenn Beck. A visionary, historian, and clearly one of the most creative minds I have ever met. (And, yes, I DID meet him during the course of the 3 day event – actually twice!)

There is something you learn when look directly into someone’s eyes and see their interaction with “ordinary” folks around them. All I will say here is Glenn Beck is the real deal. 

This first video is a theatrical introduction to the Man in the Moon event. Honestly I don’t know if there is any symbolism to the performance, other than an illustration of great choreography. Perhaps you the viewer will see something in it that I missed – and then you can illuminate me via the box below where you can share your thoughts and insights. 

Overall, Man in the Moon is a performance that tells a story – a story that ALL alive today need to be reminded of – and knowing is the first step towards doing.

Note: If you have not seen the first 3 posts in this series from the Man in the Moon event held in Salt Lake City over Independence Day weekend 2013, you can START HERE.

“A Nation in Distress” – This is a truly unique combination of live theatrics (circqe-du-soleil), with a traditional unveiling of the American Flag, and then you see the flag upside down – NOT by accident. Think of the symbolism. (The performers are about 50 feet in the air, and yes, they are UPSIDE DOWN.) All at the beginning of Man in the Moon. (Oh, and at the end, they are NOT actually walking.)

Glenn Beck introduces Man in the Moon, sets the stage, and shows off the technology a bit. There were about 20,000 people in this outdoor amphitheater, he commanded the ears, attention, and admiration of EVERY attendee.

What follows is the LAST minute or two of the Man in the Moon performance. Why just this ending clip? Well, to be honest, I stopped videoing to enjoy the performance and take it all in. You see, the stage had 100 ft. of screens AND a 30 ft. diameter globe (you saw that earlier with Glenn Beck inside it). There were several projectors that were beaming images onto the screens (including the moon) – with up to 18 images being viewed simultaneously! Add in live performers – some of whom were acrobats, Beck picked up where Walt Disney left off. With a stage stocked with so much going on, I wanted to take it all in! And wow did he deliver!! 

Walt Disney is perhaps one of the greatest story tellers, and in doing so impacted our culture – I believe Beck truly has picked up the baton and I can’t wait to see him run with it again. Man in the Moon is far more than a stage spectacular – it is a compelling story – and I don’t mind giving away the “story line” because if anything knowing it will enhance your experience if you are ever able to see Man in the Moon as a live performance. (Video just won’t do it justice.) 

The story line? A rather simple one actually, beginning with Adam and Eve, “light’ is illustrated until the serpent and the apple – and as a result of Eve’s decision, darkness. But, darkness is always followed by a period of light, and then unfortunately darkness. All of this is “reported” as “witnessed” by the “Man in the Moon”. Very engaging, very creative, and VERY thought provoking. 

In my lifetime, perhaps the greatest societal light was seeing the full disc of Earth from the vantage of Apollo 10 as it orbited the Moon on Christmas eve 1968. A very turbulent year, but with Apollo 10 showing ALL of mankind a view of our planet NEVER seen before, I believe it brought us together – if only for a moment. 

Since then? Well YOU be the judge – and as the Moon says – where will we go from here…

(This clip was NOT filmed by myself – but fortunately another posted it and I have linked to it)

This last clip – also not filmed by me – interviews some on the lawn before the Man in the Moon performance, and then a recap by Mr. Beck himself. Listen to his take on the event, and his vision. As I said earlier, I met him, I looked into his eyes and I find him to be genuine. I believe that Beck is planning to take Man in the Moon “on the road” – and show it in cities and towns across the nation to whomever cares to see it. I for one hope he does this as I believe more will benefit by hearing its message.

How do I reflect the light?

Highlights from the “Man in the Moon” Event held in Salt Lake City July 4-6, 2013

“How do I Reflect the Light”… An opening line from Bella Luna, a song written by Colton Avery for “Man in the Moon” – a production that was (is) FAR MORE than just a production… 

As you watch these videos, you will see that Man in the Moon was a gathering – a gathering of mostly Americans who have an intense love for their country. You’ll hear some things that will inspire you, disturb you, and more… 

With these thoughts, allow me to introduce you to Man in the Moon with my words here…

And now a view of Glenn Beck you may have never seen AND an introduction to David Barton – one of our nations most preeminent historians

Did you catch what David’s point was about living in poverty in America?

What do we REALLY mean by “American Exceptionalism”?

Immediately following David Barton’s powerful talk, I encountered two young people that well, I’ll say this, if these two are “typical” of today’s youth, America truly HAS a very bright future! Listen not just to WHAT they say, but to HOW they express themselves…

Some home based businesses are built upon a strong foundation – others upon Jello…

When it comes to home based businesses and the products they offer, I’ve seen alot. And for me it comes down to this:

Are the profits generated by the company driven by “market demand” or “recruiting”?

You see – THAT is the critical question!

Before you review the following video – I suggest you review PART 1 HERE looking at Entrepreneurship – and its history in our nation.

Do you agree with my point made about “anything driven by recruiting”? I’d love to hear your feedback! (Use the space below.)

Hey in closing, Rippln really IS becoming a big deal… Hmmm… a new platform and community – with incentives that will drive massive amounts of e-commerce… Whats NOT to like?! See more by clicking the banner below…

Entrepreneurship – could it be for you?

Entrepreneurship … Did you know that MOST people were entrepreneurs – essentially small business owners with their own ventures in the 1800’s?

And y’know what? Since then… its been on the decline. Factories became more and more prevalent and “we” became employees.


So, is entrepreneurship a worthy pursuit these days?

I share my thoughts on this most relevant topic in today’s world here…

YouTube Preview Image

HERE is the article I referred to in my narrative above. 

Entrepreneurship… is it for you? Does it mean you have to have “inventory”? (no) employees? (no)

In today’s world, you really can be “location neutral”! IF the points I raise in the above video resonate with you,

CONTACT ME! (I’m on skype as alan.sills) – or – I give my number in the video! 

As I noted in my video, there ARE pitfalls…I will make you ONE promise: When we talk, I’ll give you the “straight scoop”, and share with you the results of my experience – both the good and the bad – WITHOUT the hype. 

What will we talk about? Well, I’m NOT going to pitch you! But… I can assure you that ideas like the “40/40/40 plan” vs. “residual and leverage” will come up; along with the concepts of “marketing and promotion” WITHOUT evening hotel meetings and the need to ambush friends and family!

IF you’re looking to take action right now – and there is NO risk to what I’m about to share… a new platform and community called “Rippln” is just beginning to ramp up (ha! beginning? the company is nearing a community of 1 MILLION right now and is growing FASTER than Twitter at a similar stage in its development!) To learn more… click the banner below.


Entrepreneurship – Rippln will provide an incredible platform designed for success

The KEY to starting it all is entrepreneurship and having an “entrepreneurial mind set”. Ready for that conversation? Lets talk! 

Part II is coming soon as well.
