Rumor has it, the fastest way to cool your body down is to join our community. Science. Here’s how:
Here’s the scoop, kids:
Napoleon Trailer - This movie looks gooooood. Good to see Joaquin Phoenix back in the villain role like Gladiator. He wears it well. I’m excited for this one, as a nerd for history. You?
Do Hard Things For An Easy Life - If all we ever do is coast down the well-paved highways of our days, we’ll think it’s easy, but we’ll never really enjoy an easy life. To truly have an easy life, you’ve gotta do hard things first. I know this to be true above all things. This article is simple, but has a punch of truth to it. Do the hard things, celebrate the easy life from those efforts.
Responsible & Sustainable Travel - As two folks that travel A LOT, we’re constantly balancing feeling bad about it, but also enjoying it, but also having to do it for our livelihood. So, how can we do it better? How can we do it responsibly, and equally as importantly, sustainably? I like this article for the lights it shines on exactly those issues.
America By Greyhound Bus - Speaking of travel, I really loved this article about a man who traveled all over the United States, over 150,000 miles, all on Greyhound Bus. The America he saw, wasn’t one of divide, but of unity, and there’s a lot of hope in that. Sometimes we focus so much on our differences, we forget all the many, many, ways we are the same. Tragic. Read this one.
Jolly - If you woulda told me, me a man who doesn’t even LIKE food because I am allergic to so many things, that I’d enjoy watching two dudes sit and eat random foods all over the place, only to talk about them whilst doing so, I woulda told you that you were off your damn rocker. Still though, Sarah and I watch these guys every day, and love every second. Fully support, and I want to hang out with them. Anyone know em?
Appaloosa Bones by Gregory Alan Isakov - Third single off his upcoming album, and I am so proud of my brother-from-another-mother. This one is so good. Give it a listen, yeah?
Typewriter Series Goofiness - More of me reading you poems. Click the first, scroll the rest. You know the drill.Tiktok failed to load.
