Dengue Fever & IES

This post was written over two weeks ago. I didn’t want to post it until I was sure I was completely healthy, both physically and mentally. Kendra and I both had Dengue Fever. We’re 100% recovered now but it was rough. Dengue Fever (Necessary first note: Kendra was a champ and took care of me when […]

Mark Mermaid Music Monday

I’m giving myself a little break (You’ll find out why next week) and posting our Disney Cover of “Part Of Your World” this week. While it is a Disney song, the degree of difficulty was quite high. We’re not sure if this is how they do it in the original but our version has over […]

The Bandwidth War

Arms aching, I hold my computer above my head, twisting it this way and that, exhausting my strength to find a stronger connection. 20 minutes of WIFI left, but another 200 minutes until the video completes its upload. An irish woman drifts past, “Here ye are. We catchin’ the next boat outta here. You can […]

Navigational Tools

This one truly comes out of the fingertips. I normally keep these blog posts in the rearview mirror all week but, it being my first week in SE Asia I’ve been completely consumed looking out the driver-side window. That is what traveling offers, a complete immersion in the “now”. ‘Now’ this Mark Monday (well technically […]

I’m Scared

My plane could crash at any moment. When I arrive in Bangkok I have no plans, 64 days and slightly more than $1000. None of this scares me, but I’m scared… I’m scared to be the traveler who doesn’t travel. The writer who doesn’t write. The musician who doesn’t play. I’m scared I’ll procrastinate my dreams until I’m […]

Burning Man: A “Party” On Mars

Without a doubt Burning Man is one of the largest parties in the world, but it is not JUST a party. It’s life on Mars. You roam the dusty surface with other LED creatures as fire explosions startle you from a mash-up of mashups. To your left Diplo is swimming through the speakers of a shark. To your right Skrillex is buzzing out […]

Will I Be Inspired?

Right now, I’m either packing up my tent, driving, or passed out with dirty fingernails. Any-which-way, Burning Man has consumed me, forcing an automated post – a question to my future self, “Will I Be Inspired?” Prior to Burning Man last year, I had just moved into a whole new world, a 23 person artist collective. Everyone in […]

A lot of people spent a lot of time on this and we’d all be incredibly grateful if you shared this video around via emails/social media.  Thank you […]

Communication and Optimism

Half way through yet another Mark Monday a friend walked into the café. We had only crossed paths a handful of times, so he was more of an acquaintance, but each previous interaction was always the right balance of amusement and enlightenment. Unaware of my presence, he fiddled awkwardly at the coffee station. An anachronism, dressed like a grandpa from the 1970′s, but with the mind […]
