i honestly don’t know if i could complete such a journey.  i could not imagine what it would be like to complete this.

This is not a beautiful hiking video | A Pacific Crest Trail Thru-Hike from Peter H on Vimeo.

“This is not a beautiful hiking video. It’s more about heat, pain, hunger, mountains, lakes, sweat, dirt, freedom, and friendship. Actually, it’s about walking. A long distance. For a long time.”

Watch Peter’s journey on the PCT above.

Below watch a great little 40min doc.  It’s inspiring.  I could not imagine hiking it in 4-6 months and push yourself.  I would love to have the chance to hike it with my kids but realistically that is almost impossible.  How someone pushes hard and then over time gains more mental and physical strength to complete such a journey.

Dan Dewey | Dan’s Coffee Run | Starbucks | Cancer

Dan Dewey is my hero.  Truly wonderful how he did this for many years before anyone knew.  He just flew out to LA to be on a talk show that airs on Friday.  Just a couple of weeks ago… someone bought him a car and left it for him.  Val who used to work at Starbucks helped him set up his Facebook Page (which you should like).

Here is the first little video that started it off for him.  Your more than welcome to send some money and buy a round of coffee that happens each week.  He is outside of Detroit.  You can even message him and meet him at Starbucks and help him deliver it to the hospital and hand it out.

Dad Films His Daughter Every Single Week For 14 Years | The Result Is Breathtaking.

Monday, February 15th, 2016

tumblr_n4xbez8nZS1t8bmq4o1_500An incredible 14 years in the making, this viral video shows Lotte Hofmeester grow from a baby to a beautiful teen in a mere 4 minutes and five seconds.

Lotte’s father, Frans Hofmeester, started taking video of his daughter as soon as she was born on October 28, 1999. “She was changing at such a rapid pace, that I felt the need to document the way she looked, to keep my memories intact,” he writes on his website.

The result of his perseverence is this gorgeous tribute to the first 14 years of his daughter’s life, and a heartbreaking expression of the common experience of all parents who watch their children grow from infants into adults right before their eyes.

Daily Vlog | Casey Neistat | Inspiration for Chantal & Graeme

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

Casey just turned 34 and for the next little while… he is going to do a post everyday with video.  I like his POV style of storytelling.  Chantal is starting to make little movies so this is some ideas for her.  Here is the first five that features his little getaway to warm weather with the fam.

That was 209 days ago.  Below is his first couple of Vlogs and right now is Oct 21st, 2015 and he is on 210 days of making a movie every day.  I find him interesting and every couple of days… I catch up on the 5 to 8 min Vlogs and see what he is up to.  He is a super busy dude that is always filming and I don’t know how he puts out one every day.  Crazy.




Nov 1st… I’ll start making my OSE videos everyday again.  😉

Some of his vlogs or older material that he has made is below:

Casey is a good dude. The man is doing daily Vlogs and over 40 in a row. This one made me smile. He is a good dude and I love that he is trying to pull off a video everyday. Catch him on YouTube here. Here he is being a good man to his wife.

As you know… I’m a fan of Casey and how he documents things using very simple methods and some neat little DYI tricks with simple things. You can hit the link on the left and see other posts of Casey and also a couple stories of him and Candice. I think the image from above is when they broke up and she agreed to meet him for coffee in NYC and this is him pulling up on his bike filming it. You can see him in the window to the right. I honestly shoot so much video now because of him.

Here is the latest…

Casey is a special cat. Loves adventure and documenting life. Loves sharing.

My mind is still turning about a tattoo + ideas of what and where.

Enjoy the day!

Document Life | A Phone + Some Time

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

tumblr_mj7d13M9NG1rkbry3o1_500Yesterday… I posted a video by Cameron Christopher that is a little video of the first half of 2014. This morning I watched his 2013 year in review mix.  So sweet.  It’s really easy when you think about it.  You have an iPhone or a new iPod with iMovie and you just shoot footage.  Maybe every 3 days or so…you take the footage and trim what you like and mash it up and then take it off your phone to your laptop and stick it in a folder.

You collect these little mashups and then blend them back to back to back in iMovie and slap a song on it and you have something magical that you and your family & close friends can share.

This stuff inspires me.  It’s videos like this that inspires me to make my little “One Second Everyday” Videos that you can view from the pulldown menu above.

This year was so good. I’m sure there were bad days but I can hardly remember them. To exceptional friends, good vibes, and lightness. ❤ Music: Avalanche by Blackbird, Blackbird
