Sunken Greenhouse w/ Poor Man's Geothermal
Digging a 12 ft sunken greenhouse by hand using massive, and I do mean massive, iron pipes with flexible plastic ducts run through them, to create a circuit of circulating 5 degree (Celsius) air between the studio and the greenhouse.

Gonna grow fruit trees all year round. Will be hooking in the solar/wind battery array for the lights and fans.
Verboten has secured a location 5 minutes outside of Yorkton to build the AMT Prototype with drive-in style movie screen, bandstand, concession, farmer's market, and so much more. A quarter section just down Mehan road off the Number 9 Saskota Flyway North. More to come on this story soon along with formal welcome to our new Yorkton area partners.
Did you know Verboten has taken ZERO stimulus during this economic lockdown? It's true! Both Anthony and the company have been operating out of pocket for over a year as we simply don't make enough anymore to cover the bills. This is the price a small business pays to remain independent. We owe nothing. Remain uncompromised. What we create is ours and nobody can make a claim on it. Not the government and definitely not some snotty corporate stooge.

The Not So Secret Society

It starts simple. By showcasing the work of studio artists we open opportunities for creative commerce. If you have a talent you'd like to apply more seriously consider coming in for an audition. Maybe you can help us make some revenue generating content.

Then it grows. A family of creators... a tribe forms. They get their own ideas of where Verboten needs to be, forgetting they aren't the only tribe. They turn away from the productive foundation upon which they built their dreams. Undermine their Verboten Legacy with exploitation. Trading creativity for power. Such things rarely end well.

The Founder had a plan to help small town producers get a piece of that city money. Where is the Founder now?

This website is a semi-satirical homage to Verboten's original purpose in defiance of censoriousness and cancel culture.

Today's Horoscope (6/19/2021)
If You Were Born between May 21st and June 21st

The Period of Gemini. It has a pair of twin children for its sign. Mercury is the planet which guides its destinies. The best colours for Gemini are yellow, green, orange. If born in May your lucky stone will be Emerald. If June, Agate.

Who first beholds the light of day
In spring's sweet, flowery month of May,
And wears an Emerald all her life
Shall be a loved and happy wife.

Who comes with summer to this earth,
And owes to June her hour of birth,
With ring of Agate on her hand
Can health, wealth, and long life command.
