Compilation 6.5.17

The curious case of “Q”, a full-length documentary about one of my favorite musicians, and the craziest timelapse I’ve ever seen of NYC. Also, a cool story about the motivational power of drawing. And fellrunning. And more…

Welcome to the Compilation – a list of cool content that I find across the interwebs. And today, it’s jampacked!

This was a really cool story! Click on the link to read the whole thing:

This was incredible! When traveling to Kenya, I flew out of Newark, NJ (right next to NYC). From the air, I could make out the Statue of Liberty and the One World Trade Center. But watching this made me feel like I was actually there. 🙂


These guys are in their sixties and running over fells (mountains). My goal in life is to be in that good of shape at 60. 🙂


This is a full-length documentary behind one of my favorite musicians – Josh Garrels. After watching, it filled me with even more respect for his skill as a musician.

What happens when the ever-narrowing gap between artist and audience disappears? In the documentary performance film “The Sea in Between,” Portland-based songwriter Josh Garrels and NYC arts collective Mason Jar Music travel to remote Mayne Island, B.C. to build music from the ground up, on a trip made possible by one inspired family of fans.


You have heard of salty, sweet, sour, and umani.

But what about Q?

Maybe I’m weird, but I thought this was a fascinating article…

If you like these Compilations (and want to continue seeing them in the future), let me know in the comments below. This is what I’m thinking for the Compilation:

  • Keep to a once a week schedule
  • OR, move to a once a month schedule
  • OR, stop posting them

Since I’m not sure what to do, I would love to hear what you think/want. Thanks!
