Danny MacAskill’s Bike Stunts in an Imaginary World – Sport / Bike, Meets Art, Meets Photography, Meets Music

The video starts at 0:45

This clip is a great mix of so many skills! Awesome bike stunts by the athlete Danny MacAskill (artist name I suppose 🙂 ), great artistry in bringing a toy world to the real world, great footage and to wrap it up… great music, “Houston” with Runaway.

For those interested in Photography, don’t miss out on the behind the scenes clip (link at the end of the video)


Riddle For The Weekend – 4 Men in Hats

Shown above are four men buried up to their necks in the ground. They cannot move, so they can only look forward. Between A and B is a brick wall which cannot be seen through.

They all know that between them they are wearing four hats–two black and two white–but they do not know what color they are wearing. Each of them know where the other three men are buried.

In order to avoid being shot, one of them must call out to the executioner the color of their hat. If they get it wrong, everyone will be shot. They are not allowed to talk to each other and have 10 minutes to fathom it out.
After one minute, one of them calls out.

Question: Which one of them calls out? Why is he 100% certain of the color of his hat?

This is not a trick question. There are no outside influences nor other ways of communicating. They cannot move and are buried in a straight line; A & B can only see their respective sides of the wall, C can see B, and D can see B & C.

A great list for many aspects of life – Pixar’s 22 Rules of storytelling

Yesterday I came across a list of 22 rules of storytelling from Pixar. Straight ahead I started to think about other areas where I could use it, and it actually is a great set of advice for many areas. I could use it in my personal life, for projects, creating business plans and so on. As always, all that we read is interpreted with our own mind / thoughts.

About Life

“For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin – real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, or a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.”

– Alfred D. Souza


More connected – but more alone?

This video really made me think about the modern way of spending time with each other. The topic is far from new, but I think this short movie really put its finger on today’s society, and I’m the first to agree that I’m absolutely one of those who should think more about this.

So, why are we always “on our way”, instead of grasping the moment we’re in?
