And to go along with that last David Byrne video, here is my favorite song of the summer and then some.
And last but not least is this video...I'll keep it smaller so it doesn't hurt your eyes too much. So stupid...

Also, headed out on another adventure tomorrow. Extended weekend road trip. Zions x Las Vegas x Grand Canyon x Bryce Canyon with a handful of other random stops throughout. I'll come home with some good stories, images and experiences.
Perhaps sometime in the next couple weeks I'll actually put together an in depth super post of my recent travels to X Games, Utah adventures and this upcoming road trip. As for now, here are a bunch of random photos from my iPhone of things I've done over the past couple months...
Keep in touch!
I helped Pep build a deck at his house. Here's a small view of the huge task he took on. Looked great as a final product.
Jordan Seldin works as a Pyrotechnician in the summers. He needed help with a firework show, so I gave a helping hand and learned a bit about things that go boom.
Feeding birds in Zion is for the birds.
This is where we conduct our Surface business meetings.
My brother has this old Miami Vice bullet bike. Scares the ish out of me, but I've got to get scared somehow during the summer months...
Surface's new product run is looking tip top quality and super fun.
My Madre cooks some damn good meals. Eggplant x Mozzarella x Basil.
Utah Olympic Park. Got to keep my tricks up to date.
Mighty beasts. Horses are rad.
You spin me right round baby right round.
The newest Nyman sister and my little brother.
Deer Creek. My muse for the summer.
Estaban and his fiance. Squeezing a few more stand up paddle board days in.
Q-Tip. By far the best concert I've been to this summer. Surprisingly.
Summer sunset over a parking lot.

Now to the real point. RadioLab has a blog that I'm subscribed to. A post came up today that includes the video below. The video shows many quick clips of experiences throughout life. Some of them personal that we can or will eventually relate to and some of them a window into the experiences of someone else. This little piece ties in with the RadioLab piece they've been doing on life and more specifically, the after life. It really struck me as I watched it and caused me to reflect on some of my own personal "moments" and inspired some nostalgia for some long past.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
More to come soon.

I've been trying to keep up to date on the happenings of the movie, which eventually led me to another Jonze project, We Love You So. I'll let the description on the site tell the story...
"In October 2009 Spike Jonze’s feature film rendition of Maurice Sendak’s classic story Where The Wild Things Are will hit movie theaters worldwide. The film represents years of work from hundreds of different artists, writers, photographers, musicians, actors, and creators of all degrees. This place has been established to help shed some light on many of the small influences that have converged to make this massive project a reality.
Simply put, this a place to learn about things we think are great and to share with you the things those things helped make. Wild Things indeed… And also probably a lot of other randoms things that catch our eye along the way."
So I wanted to regurgitate that to my readers. Its a rad and interesting site. Thought you might like to keep up to date, as I have been. Here's a video from one of their more recent posts as well as a great childhood picture of me and my brothers.
We Love You So. Enjoy.

Will had a large hand in creating AutismOne, which is a online community that provides blogs, forums, radio, video, literature among other things to help educate and combat autism.
I haven't had much first hand experience with autism, but from what I understand it is quite prevalent and gaining momentum. So please help Will and the millions affected by joining the AutismOne community and become more educated and supportive of the ones in need.

This one is quite long and to be honest I've only seen the first few minutes, but it captivated me enough to share it on here. Got a soft spot for the ski content...
And three different photos that captivated me for three different reasons...
