Being optimistic and happy are two mottos that I usually attempt to live by. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the reality. Without sadness, depression, feelings of worthlessness, etc., one wouldn’t grasp how great the rest of life truly is. Like I said, I try my hardest to be positive and not stress the small stuff, but some days that is harder than others.
I have a good job, I’m engaged and planning a wedding, I own my home, I have 3 awesome dogs, my friends and family are amazing, we’re keeping up with our bills (the most stressful thing ever ha), yet, I’m having difficulty shaking this crappy ass mood of mine. I feel unfulfilled and can’t pin down what it is that’s making me feel this way. Regardless, I wouldn’t want to be around me like this (that’s a lie, I’m still awesome), and therefore, I must do something.
Instead of letting this mood take me over, and just accepting that this is how I feel, I WILL do something about it. No, I’m not going to cry in the bathroom stall (again) or anything absolutely fucking insane, but maybe something as simple as working out? Granted, I should be doing this anyway, but it might be a nice idea to get my mind focused on something else. I might also be in a better mood if I were smoking hot. So, yes, this definitely needs to happen.
GETTING INTO SHAPE, GETTING SMOKING HOT AND KILLING THIS DEPRESSION STARTS… NOW!
In this video, there are men who are jumping off a 400-foot canyon wall tethered to a rope and swinging across the gorge. And while the entire video is pretty incredible, the BEST part starts at 11:20 when a girlfriend, Jessica Powell of Meridian, Idaho, is contemplating whether or not to jump. Creighton Baird of Amarillo, Texas, is Powell’s boyfriend and tries his best to encourage her to jump.
After this, the couple did in fact break up. But, it was a few weeks later, and not due to this incident. After the jump, it took Powell 45 minutes to get back up and she had long since cooled off. Powell and Baird kissed and laughed it off.

For all the GoPro shots, we hooked the camera to a Go-Scope, and it
worked out great. For all those asking, here is the pole I used.

Yes, this may be a marketing ploy from Nike. Yes, maybe it is “well-coordinated spontaneity on behalf of Nike’s marketing dept.” But, ultimately, it’s a video showing two men traveling to and from many different countries in just 10 days and having an extraordinary time. If you choose to critique this video, that’s your choice; Although, it’s also my choice to take this video as inspiration, NOT to go and buy a Nike product, but instead, to go travel and explore our planet. There is so much out there and so few of us are able to see it all, or even some for that matter. And it’s obviously filmed and edited very well, which makes it that much more amazing. Kudos to Max Joseph and Casey Neistat.
we shot this in 10 days, just the two of us.
Max, my friend in the movie, is a talented filmmaker, he edited this movie. check him out http://www.maxjoseph.com/‘

I love when people turn an embarrassing incident into something everyone can enjoy. This guy, in Hawaii, clearly has the right idea of how to do things.

Not going to lie, I don’t think I could bench press that much OR pop a wheelie. For this reason, I must give this man credit for accomplishing both tasks… at the same time!
Very early on Wednesday morning, three-year-old Hope Lillian Trott made an incredible walk to the store after awakening in the middle of the night. Young Hope had thought that her mother was at the store buying pizza and had decided to put her coat on over her pajamas as well as her favorite red shoes on, that went with her Minnie Mouse outfit, and head to go find her mom.
The family lives in Maine, so the little girl had left footprints of her journey in the snow before arriving at the store, which wasn’t yet open. A store employee had arrived near 4 a.m. to clean the floors, when he saw Hope crying out in front and decided to alert the police. Seeing as she was so young, the officers traced her footprints back to her home, fearing that there might have been a home invasion.
Luckily, upon arriving at the Trott home, they were relieved to find the door ajar, but everyone else in the home sound asleep. And little Hope was checked out at the hospital, which assured everyone that nothing was wrong with the youngster, despite the weather being 29 degrees during her early morning walk.
Although this is just the trailer, it makes me look forward to the release of ‘People In Motion’ and I hope it makes you do the same. Enjoy!
Trailer for a film we’ve been working on, People in Motion
We traveled the west coast with 5 creative characters who shared a passion for movement. This film documents the experience over 9 months. It was life changing.
