I love this project the storytelling the video does. Special thanks to my friend Johnson for sharing.

RAD video from The North Face and National Geographic. A harrowing expedition in search of Southeast Asia's highest mountain. I can't believe the work the videographer did on this - wow!

Great content for Vans, for their #livingoffthewall campaign. Honest, candid, cool - it's just people that are doing their thing, no matter how crazy or weird it is. I love the passion. Check it out.

I've recently taken a shining to story slams. I started to attend a bunch and instantly fell in love with the rawness everyday people shared with absolute strangers. One evening, I was heading to a local Moth storySLAM here in Boston when I found myself making bullets in my head of a story a would tell based on that night's topic: school. I took this as a sign and decided I would throw my hat in the ring; why not. See, these events sell out every week and they only pick 10 names out of a hat to tell stories during the show. Only when I signed up, sure I would never get picked, I did! And even more so, I got the high score that night and was declared the winner. Here's that story:
It was absolutely terrifying, but felt right (at the risk of sounding like a total ass). So, now I'm on the hunt to continue to do more storytelling events and explore what might come from it. I do know that from this, I will go on to compete at a grandSLAM against other winners. Yikes! We'll see what happens next in this story...

My brother sent me a video of an old Gene Wilder interview because he knows how much I love Gene Wilder. The interview had been animated and I thought it was such a delight.

Then I saw one from the dazzling Grace Kelly:
