It’s only when you consider death, that you really do come alive.
| It is always now. However much you feel you need to plan for the future, to anticipate it, to mitigate risks, the reality of your life is now.
Every minute of this video is incredible, and is a great example of life lived based purely on simplicity and passion. It’s incredible what can happen when you strip your life down to just the bare essentials, and do what you love. Honestly, all 17 minutes of this is worth it.
| This is your good old days, it only gets worse from here on. The good ole days are these!
It’s incredibly difficult to walk through NYC and not be enveloped in the solitude. I know the feeling, brushing shoulders with hundreds of people each day and feeling a disconnect between the masses and your own seclusion. While I love NY (no place like home), it’s an incredible paradox that this video hits on the head — something to think about.

|This was the most amazing trip of my life so far…and here it is, summarized in under 3 minutes. This is my first time time lapse film, so it means a lot that you’re here, reading this, stepping into a very special piece of my past.
With the Fourth of July weekend coming to an [unfortunately abrupt] end, it’s only right to celebrate the pinnacle of summer with this incredible footage by Jos Stiglingh at the West Palm Beach Fireworks Show. With more and more incredible drone footage being taken, I didn’t think it’d be possible to create something this incredible. Take a gander! (submission via Ebb Isaac)
Independence Day (while being mostly considered for BBQs and fireworks) is less often considered for what it really means — freedom. I was thinking about the idea of freedom in the good ole’ U.S.A and remembered this video. There’s a lot that we can be in this life, but I’m pretty grateful for the freedom to choose and to be able to live each day the way I’d like it to go into my history.
