NEW YORK : MANHATTAN : METROPOLIS
 

NEW YORK : MANHATTAN : METROPOLIS

The music in this is a bit meh, and there is a fair amount of repetition, but I love this short because it gives you an idea of just how massive the Manhattan borough is. Pause it every now and then, put into perspective how large those buildings are, then think of population that occupies them. What they do for a living. What they do for fun. I need to get to this city.

Weekend Watching: Slomo
 

Weekend Watching: Slomo

Like I said in the LET US ROAM post yesterday, this self-actualisation-esque theme is picking up. I absolutely loved this. The end sequence makes it for me. You want to be there. This New York Times piece is on Dr. John Kitchin who quit a medical career to pursue his passion: skating along the boardwalk of San Diego‚Äôs Pacific Beach. Look, ‘Slomo’ had to make a lot of money before he decided to skate up and down a beach all day, but his story, his mental shift, and especially his scientific take on ‘the zone’ sportsmen and those that meditate talk of is great, and unique to my ears. If you don’t have the time now, bookmark this and come back to it.

Let Us Roam Episode 1 Ft. Ray Barbee

I’ve seen a huge spike in this kind of short. Either brand related, or personal, there is an undeniable increase in the amount of inspirational-follow-your-desires kind of content. A sign of our generations struggle I suppose, that being, in the words of Tyler Durden – or rather Chuck Palahniuk, the fact that we are ‘the middle children of history’, we have ‘no purpose or place’. We get to do what we want, and with that freedom comes uncertainty. No one actually knows if this way of life will work. But we try, and the result is a growing number of people living lives that were almost unheard of a generation ago. Here is part 1 from the LET US ROAM series featuring Ray Barbee, a professional skateboarder from San Jose, CA. ‘Barbee’s film explores his passion for music and photography, which were made accessible through skateboarding.’

My Search For The Ultimate Dish Cleaning Tool
 

My Search For The Ultimate Dish Cleaning Tool

There are people that dedicate their entire lives to a single quest. Countless have even died in their endeavors. Some seek the furthest parts of the world, the undiscovered. Some the ultimate rush, the perfect picture, the perfect song. Some desire world domination, some just want their name up on the regular drinkers wall at their local pub. Me? All I want is the perfect dish washing tool.

For All The Award Winners
 

For All The Award Winners

I know this video is from 2011, which basically makes it a million internet years old, but it’s actually just too good. Besides, it’s so old, it’s basically ok to share again. This clip has the ability to make me laugh out loud while making me violently angry at the same time. It’s done so well it’s impossible not to enjoy it. In the same way, it’s done so well it shows up all those video award entries or agency case study public wanks. Look, I’m not knocking what is essentially my industry, because I know that there is amazing stuff going on, I’m knocking those that put together case studies like this, and pass them off as serious achievements. Or worse, those down the food/agency chain from the original ‘big idea’, that claim the results as their own.

The Tinder Animal Phenomenon
 

The Tinder Animal Phenomenon

I think it’s time we had a chat about this animals on Tinder thing. I wanted to hold back on this post for a bit, to give me more time to wrangle up a few more creatures, but after two weeks of collecting, this zoo is full. Look at this as an ongoing study on the human nature of the single South African – because as far as I can tell, this is a phenomenon exclusive to SA. I started this study with the collection of extraordinary bios and odd names, but, as these scientific ventures tend to go, a far more beautiful yet bewildering truth has presented itself. At first the big cats led the way, creating a new Tinder trend, exclusive to SA. Once the path for wildlife was forged, like animals to The Ark, so came the snakes, goats, birds, large mammals and primates to the world of Tinder profile pictures.
