"THE GAP by Ira Glass" by Daniel Sax
I think it was at springtime 2012, when I came across David Shiyang Lius lovely piece of work about Ira Glass. It was the most inspiring and motivating video, I have ever seen in my life. I watched it over and over again, listened to Ira Glass’ voice and told myself, that I am not the only person who is constantly disappointed about the gap between ones taste and ones skills. Later on in 2012 I decided to do an own filmed version of Iras interview - use my own language to tell his message. It took me about a year from concept to upload.
I made it for myself and for anybody who is in doubt with his/her creative career. I also think that Ira Glass’ message isn’t only limited to the creative industry. It can be applied to everyone who starts out in a new environment and is willing to improve.
Can’t thank everyone enough for all the love and support that has been given to me not only over this weekend but the last 4 years! Wouldn’t be where I am today with out my faith, my family, and my friends, who are really more like family! Thank you to #roguefitness, #reebok, #advocare, #oakley, and #rehband for letting me wake up every morning and do what I love! And thanks most of all to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for taking a broken human being and making me whole!

"When we’re young, we act first and think later. But as adults, we rationalize everything. Basically, the song is about capturing the innocence of youth."
This song is about 6 years old; the remix is about 4. Good music is classic, forever. A way to float on clouds \m/
"That Moment" with Carl Paoli
The difficulties of Life aren’t there to prevent you from doing things but to be overcome.
Saw Jobs (the movie) finally. This thing is a good source of inspiration for creatives. One of the monologue’s that I still remember is the one that Matthew Modine said (portraying John Sculley in the screencap above):
You can make a great product, but you have to convince people that what you’re selling is greater.
This doesn’t only deal with material products per se, but ourselves.
