Twenty Eight Feet | Explore | Find Yourself | Life On A Wooden Boat

October 7th, 2017

Love watching great photography and great little shorts.  David Welsford let go of most of his belongings, bought a sailboat and started living in it adventurously while traveling the world with it. “For me more important than having a big house is having a space that makes me feel good,” says David.

He basically stumbled upon a old boat and talked to the owner about restoring it and bringing it back to life.

It’s a 28′ sailboat that’s around 50 years old that he restored himself. He takes soap showers on the boat and jumps into the salt water to rinse off.  Lizzy Belle is an H28 class Ketch rigged sailboat designed by L. Francis Herreshoff.  H28’s were first built in 1942 and have since become one of the most circumnavigated sailboats in their class.  Lizzy Belle was built in Chester, Nova Scotia by Chester Boatwork’s in 1968 and named after the wife of the original owner Elizabeth Belle.  In the winter of 2012 the first chapter of his adventure became a reality as Lizzy Belle and her crew sailed the blue waters of the Caribbean.

1,300 miles of
climbing mountains,
swimming in rivers,

camping in forests,

Casey In Toronto

October 3rd, 2017

Casey did the keynote at BufferFestival in Toronto on the weekend so I picked up some tickets to see the short films after Casey’s talk.

( I loved Melanie Murphy’s short film about abortion and the struggle women in Ireland face  BTW at Buffer Festival)

The kids went downtown Toronto since we were going to hit the all night art fest.  I’m a Casey fan on how he documents things and his storytelling.  This past July… he did a keynote and I wanted to post it below if you ever wanted to listen to him a little more.


Casey Neistat is an American film director, producer, developer, and creator of popular YouTube videos. Neistat attained commercial success with the HBO series The Neistat Brothers and indie film Daddy Longlegs. With ten years of experience in creating TV commercials, Neistat took his story-telling ability and married it with his commercial experience to re-define branded content on the internet with companies such as Mercedes and Nike. Most recently, Neistat’s technology company, Beme, was acquired by CNN.

Two videos.  Above is the storytelling on how he jumps around to tell a story that is shot by just him.  How he moves the camera around to get a different POV and help with focus on different parts.  How he uses music and old footage of him.

Below:  Yes a quick trip but just how he films traveling which is tough and he tries to capture it a different way by counting down the hours.  His cuts and how he moves the camera around to capture from a different POV.

Ry X | Bad Love | Song Of The Quarter | 4Q

September 23rd, 2017


[Verse 1]
Tell me all your little thoughts
Tie you up, not enough
Give me that bad love, bad love
Show me you’re a criminal
Bite it up till it talks
Give me that bad love, bad love

[Verse 2]
We could be high on feeling requisite
Under the thoughts, give me your love, give me your bones
We could have love on fire
I give it all up for bad love

[Chorus 1]
I’ll be your warmth here
I’ll be your back
I put you in the corner when you open up
Please, baby, back for bad love, bad love

[Verse 3]
Tell me you’re another girl
Heavy lust, heavy touch
Give me that bad love, bad love
We could have love on fire
I give it all up for bad love

[Chorus 1]
I’ll be your warmth here
I’ll be your back
I put you in the corner when you open up
Please, baby, back for bad love, bad love

[Chorus 2]
I’ll be your warmth here
And how can I wait?
I’m holding your bag for you
Please, baby, back for bad love, bad love

How can I wait?
Holding your bag for you
