It’s been since Thanksgiving I posted last. I had some problems with my website, hosting, etc. I finally was able to migrate everything over to a new host but have been unable to fix all the dead links to photos/media/ etc. I will be updating my site and fixing everything shortly. In the meantime, it would mean the world to me if you could take 5 minutes out of your busy schedule to check out this video I made for our LowTide campaign. Everything is explained in the video about how you can contribute and help us out! Please Share/ retweet & contribute! Every little bit helps BIG time!
Happy Thanksgiving everybody. Enjoy your day with your family, friends and loved ones. I am very grateful to have the opportunity to continually do the things I most enjoy doing. Whether I am on the beach taking photos or in LA making music and videos, I am extremely grateful I have people around who support my art and my life choices.
I made this tasty little gem yesterday. Hitler reacts to the release of Poker Face. I’d like to share with you one of the greatest gifts of all. Laughter. Enjoy.
Much love to everybody involved with the song and the video. Thank You!
And just in case you haven’t seen our new video yet. Here it is. Poker Face
We have been working very hard for a very long time and it’s finally all coming together.
My band †b5, The Bangkok Five, started this album well over a year ago. I flew back and forth from Costa Rica a few times to write and record the drums. In fact, this video was shot the day before I flew to Berlin to watch the LA Kings start their Stanley cup run in October. Somewhere along the way, Garrett Warren and I met each other and in between flying remote control helicopters and discussing producing films together, we eventually settled with ideas for a music video. I say “settled” because playing drums underwater is the least crazy/ interesting/ intense/ amazing suggestion he had. I’d love to hear what you think…
I found this story on the Internets this morning while reading the news. It’s appropriate for everything I’ve been through and my goals I’ve recently been trying to accomplish. Maybe you too will find this story motivating and uplifting.
Shake it off and step up!
Donkey in the well
One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.
Finally he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway, it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They each grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement, he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer looked down the well, and was astonished at what he saw. As every shovel of dirt hit his back, the donkey did something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.
As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed, as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and trotted off.
Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles a stepping stone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up!
Remember the five simple rules to be happy:
Free your heart from hatred.
Free your mind from worries.
I heard that it’s about that time to vote so I went ahead and took the liberty to see who the current candidates are. I tried to find something accurate and factual or at least references sited. Oddly enough, these videos where fact checkers corrected the candidates and pointed out their lies, stood out to me most. I feel like the videos equally represent each side.
Good Run America.
Mr. President, you first:
And now for your worthy opponent… Mitt
Pick your poison… These are the morals, values and ethics it takes to run the greatest country in the world.
So anyways, Who are you voting for President?
