Watch Drill Baby Drill Video

Welcome to another edition of The Visionary!

Singer-songwriter and Gulf native Jack Mosley has given ULC Monastery the honor of producing the video for his new single, "Drill Baby Drill".  A scathing response to the irresponsibility and greed leading up to the devastating Deepwater Horizon rig explosion, "Drill Baby Drill" highlights the suffering of Gulf Coast residents, ecosystems, and wildlife.  You can purchase this song, or the entire album Headin’ South, on iTunes,, or, with 100% proceeds going to the World Wildlife Fund to aid in spill clean-up and wildlife rehabilitation. We encourage you to watch the video and read more at and help us spread the word by sharing it with your friends and family.
