Shoot The Skies – 365


This is my buddy Tanner. He is one of the most motivated and kind hearted people I’ve met, and he also happens to be a fantastic photography. This is his project and his description below:

“My life was changed forever in 2012 when a Roma Gypsy man in Sofia Bulgaria offered to sell me his 6 month old baby for 50 dollars, simply because I said he was beautiful.

That moment inspired me to do something. In 2013 I released a photograph every single day with one goal in mind: To publish this book, a 365-day photo journal created to abolish human trafficking. www.shoottheskies.com

In addition to being a beautiful display piece to inspire awareness and conversation, 100% of the profits from this book will go The A21 Campaign.”

Please take a moment to watch the video and share. If you can purchase a book. This is such a great cause and he has given up well over a year of his life dedicated to making this possible. Let’s support him and help those victims.

Why Get Creative?

THE GAP by Ira Glass from frohlocke on Vimeo.

I feel that most companies know that hiring out to creative agencies is an integral part of business, but so often I see large companies not getting the high level of work done for their marketing. These videos were shared with me and they are great. Creative and intriguing.

THIS IS CYCLING

Flashback Friday to what real cycling is… “Oh no” “Droppin ‘em, bib time!”

Notes on Blindness

Capture

“I should also say, that this is an experience of beauty… Instead of being isolated, cut off, pre-occupied internally, you are presented with a world. You’re related to a world. You’re addressed by a world. Why should this experience strike one as being beautiful? Cognition is beautiful. It’s beautiful to know.”

Notes on Blindness (click to watch the video) is a op doc featuring the details of what losing your sight is like.

“In the summer of 1983, following a decade of steady deterioration, writer and theologian John Hull lost all traces of light sensation. For three years he kept a diary on audiocassette – over sixteen hours in total – a unique and insightful meditation on memory, consciousness and perception.

The diaries were published in 1991 and met with wide critical acclaim. The neurologist Oliver Sacks described the work as “the most extraordinary, precise, deep and beautiful account of blindness I have ever read. It is, to my mind, a masterpiece”.

INTO DARKNESS uses John’s original recordings, never before heard in public, brought to life by striking cinematography, verbatim reconstructions and creative use of archive footage. The result is a unique and cinematic amalgamation of documentary and drama, taking the viewer into the strange and insular world of blindness.” Seen originally on NYTIMES. The filmmakers, Peter Middleton and James Spinney, are also looking to make a full length of this.

Making of a Champion: Seattle Seahawks


I had heard a lot about this video, but just finally got around to watching it. With all the press and publicity that the Seahawks are getting this season, what a blessing this video is. I love seeing men who are the best at something top level yet count it as loss but a vapor. Yet God and His word are solid and the one thing to build our identities on. Enjoy.

Hold Fast – Be Still

Here is my latest edit for Hold Fast. Since getting a new job at the start of summer this year, I have not gotten out to ride and film as much as I used to, but I am quite happy with how this turned out. Big thanks to Chris Clappe and Kareem Shehab for filming it for me and to Hold Fast for their support. 2013 was a big year for me in many ways off the bike, and I’m excited to continue seeing where God’s plan takes me.

I also recently dropped prices on my Be Still tee shirts (seen in almost every clip hahah). You can pick yours up here.

The Calvinist

What does a modern Calvinist live like? Pray like? Die like?

See him on his knees,
Hear his constant pleas:
Heart of ev’ry aim:
“Hallowed be Your name.”
See him in the Word,
Helpless, cool, unstirred,
Heaping on the pyre
Heed until the fire.
See him with his books:
Tree beside the brooks,
Drinking at the root
Till the branch bear fruit.
See him with his pen:
Written line, and then,
Better thought preferred,
Deep from in the Word.
See him in the square,
Kept from subtle snare:
Unrelenting sleuth
On the scent of truth.
See him on the street,
Seeking to entreat,
Meek and treasuring:
“Do you know my King?”
See him in dispute,
Firm and resolute,
Driven by the fame
Of his Father’s name.
See him at his trade.
Done. The plan is made.
Men will have his skills,
If the Father wills.
See him at his meal,
Praying now to feel
Thanks and, be it graced,
God in ev’ry taste.
See him with his child:
Has he ever smiled
Such a smile before,
Playing on the floor?
See him with his wife,
Parable for life:
In this sacred scene
She is heaven’s queen.
See him stray. He groans.
“One is true,” he owns.
“What is left to me?
Fallibility.”
See him in lament
“Should I now repent?”
“Yes. And then proclaim:
All is for my fame.”
See him worshipping.
Watch the sinner sing,
Spared the burning flood
Only by the blood.
See him on the shore:
“Whence this ocean store?”
“From your God above,
Thimbleful of love.”
See him now asleep.
Watch the helpless reap,
But no credit take,
Just as when awake.
See him nearing death.
Listen to his breath,
Through the ebbing pain:
Final whisper: “Gain!”
