Hip Hop Hooray

I’ll leave this without comment.

My Favorite Super Bowl 2021 Ad

I would’ve never guessed that in 2021, I’d be picking Amazon as having my favorite commercial spot of the Super Bowl. Has hell frozen over?

Korean Food Porn

This is food porn at its finest. Watch how this restaurant in South Korea makes it’s smash burgers. No dialog, just raw unadulterated “fast” food cooking.

Carts of Darkness

This came out of left field for me and an immediate soft spot in my heart due to being shot in my hometown of Vancouver, Canada.

Murray Siple's feature-length documentary follows a group of homeless men who have combined bottle picking with the extreme sport of racing shopping carts down the steep hills of North Vancouver. This subculture depicts street life as much more than the stereotypes portrayed in mainstream media. The film takes a deep look into the lives of the men who race carts, the adversity they face and the appeal of cart racing despite the risk.

Disney Recycling

The entertainment magicians showing content reuse at its finest 🤯

Hard Work

If this doesn’t qualify for an Interesting Find, I don’t know what does 😀.

Sometimes we hear a call from nature. When I was 18 years old I ventured out alone with only a backpack full of simple hand tools to actualize my dream. Build my own traditional off grid log cabin by hand from the materials of the Swedish wilderness. Just like our Forefathers did. I had no previous experience in building, gathering materials or filming. So I started studying myself the old arts and learning from my grandfather and mentor Åke Nilsson. I began to cut down trees and film with my phone, learning as I go. My project started full time once I graduated high school in summer 2019. I filmed everything myself and edited this video so you can follow my journey and hopefully learn as I do. The tractor is a Ferguson TE20 "Grålle" from 1946, they were wildly used to move timber. In 1950 the first chainsaws came to Sweden but they were too big and heavy to be practical. I didn't want to take down every closest tree. So by using the tractor (also as a little tribute) I could haul a few trees from further away, about 150 meters. I would have loved to use a horse but don't have one. yet..

It’s nearly 2 hours long, so a real commitment so don’t blame if you if you skip through parts of it. If you’re like me, you’ll end up watching way more of this than you intended to.
