I recently returned from a two week trip to Russia. Compared to the expedition and some other post expedition travels, two weeks really wasn't very long... at least it didn't seem very long as it flew by incredibly fast, but then again, the expedition flew by like a blur as well. Needless to say, I packed in as much as I could into those two weeks: from Russian language lessons and Moscow sightseeing, to ... Read more
As everyone is certainly well aware, there was a bombing last week at the 117th running of the Boston Marathon. With no know terrorists organizations claiming immediate responsibility, an anxious public desperately searched for clues and eagerly waited for answers into the identity of the suspect(s). Wild speculation was the order of the day and pundits "in the know" even went as far as to incorrectly and absurdly spew theories about who did ... Read more
We have been working on a documentary about bike community for about a year now and are nearly finished. It is called Bike Driven, and over the course of the last year we have filmed some serious nutballs riding the funkiest of setups in Denver, even tall bikes, but none this tall. The bike is insane and the ride in the video is from a gathering called LA Bike ... Read more
Alexander Polli 3
These days there are countless names in the wingsuit flying world that are pushing the limits, getting arrested, getting hurt doing the wildest of flights. All of their stunts often get them some money or fame...maybe even some money. Without a doubt their antics get the insane stamp smacked right across their ... Read more
For each of us, a few things in life truly give us bliss. For some maybe it is sunsets, for others maybe it is watching their children grow up, but Aleksander Gamme did us all a favor to capture true bliss on video.
Alex is a Norwegian adventurer who recently made his way to the South Pole, all alone. He has gone on many adventures before this, including a climb up Mt. Everest, but the video below captures something that can make us all smile, and it is not some grandiose back flip or jump from the stratosphere. It took him over 3 months to get there and back unsupported. On his way to the South Pole, as part of the logistics of many adventures of this type, he left behind food and gear to lighten his load…many things, like food, that he would need months later on his way back.

Let’s face it, no one likes going through security at the airport. It is arguably one of the least enjoyable aspects of boarding a plane and traveling domestically or internationally. Most people have come to realize screening is a necessary evil and put up with the inefficient, invasive and sometimes humiliating process of going through security at the airport.
iPads are finding their way into every walk of life these days. Doctors are using them to look at charts, they are used for surveys, and now many restaurants use them for interactive wine lists. But the most innovative use to date is magic. The first question out of your head might be, “iPads are like magic anyway, who cares if someone makes a computer program to do something fancy?” For Charlie Caper and Erik Rosales, they answer the question with style. Their combination of traditional magic and the ever so versatile iPad makes for a great presentation at the MIPIM international real estate show this year in Stockholm.
With a mixture of humor and creative tricks with the tablets, the two present a quick vignette of what makes Stockholm a great place. What will be next with the iPad?
