Wow, there's someone who is really living his life fully right to the limit. His journal is something to read.

This is quite a composition - beautiful, funny, sad.

Very interesting post indeed, Ambrosia Voyeur. Thank you for posting this. I woke up this morning rather annoyed about some mildly unpleasant tasks I have at hand. This was an attitude changer.

I don't know why this doesn't have more comments -- it's truly a "best of the web". Thanks for sharing it.

I agree with you, parilous - it's a very good post and I wondered the same thing when I saw it this morning. But some of the best posts on mefi get very few comments - it has ever been thus. Doesn't mean it isn't being read or appreciated - several people have favorited. Usually there are at least a few drop-ins that say "thanks." I guess that's us!

I had no idea that these projects were the brainchildren of one man. I plan on checking back later to find out what the contents of the DVD are.
