“ (pointing at altimeter) We’re at 3000 ft now” “(thumbs up) Great!… How high are we going?” “14000 ft” “Oh, cool” internal monologue and nervous laughter… “aaauummm… 11000 ft higher?! So, um, we’re pretty fuckin high already…” Goals, dreams, wunderlust – whatever you want to call it – we should all have things we want to do. The Bucket List. A safari on the Serengeti, overcoming the fear of public speaking, diving with great whites, writing a book, learning to make the perfect pasta by hand, running naked in a rainstorm, solving a rubiks cube without pulling it apart … Continue reading The Bucket List and other life essentials

Hell I barely like those I can’t banter with and … Continue reading Life is all about the Banter
Howdy Toasters, We live in a truly digital age where you can do pretty much anything from anywhere, anytime and share what you’re doing with anyone who’s watching….. all thanks to the technology that’s integrated into our lives. There’s a debate going around that we spend too much time online and not enough in real life ( or IRL). This is a view i’ve never agreed with because i think the technology we use, how we use and how it’s integrated into everything we do is the modern real life. Today on Good Magazine i discovered an article, featured as … Continue reading The IRL Fetish
Howdy Toasters! Interesting piece from the New York Times for some wiseness from the toaster. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/22/opinion/sunday/the-flight-from-conversation.html “We live in a technological universe in which we are always communicating. However with constant communication have we sacrificed conversation for mere connection?” It’s relevantly timed for me too, over recent weeks of running (usually late) from one place to another, or sat at home studying, being lazy /tired etc knowing i can be in touch with everyone through a tweet, a pin, a grind a link, a text or a call i’m not as motivated to be sponateously social …. it’s led me to … Continue reading New York Times – The Flight From Conversation
