Stuck In Customs: Sunset in Aruba

New Jason Silva on MDMA and healing with MAPS

Here’s a new video from Jason Silva. He mentions MAPS which is a great organization to which I have donated!

Daily Photo – Sunset in Aruba

Now that I’ve been living in the mountains and trees for so long, I’m thinking about how fun it is at the beach! It might be the opposite for people on the beach. Well, maybe not. I know people that live on the beach that would never even consider living anywhere else. You know how beach people are…

Stuck In Customs: Above the Starbucks

Passport Sunday Party

In today’s Passport Sunday, you’ll see a fun edit of today’s daily photo from Tokyo!

Japanese Girls in the Wild

I make a few inappropriate references in today’s Passport Sunday video, so I don’t apologize for that. You’ll see how this edit does a little bit more of an extreme HDR illustrative look. Enjoy!

Daily Photo – Above the Starbucks

This is a fun tableau vivant from an evening scene in Tokyo. I wander around most of the day with my camera trying to find interesting slices of life here and there. This particular spot is right by the Starbucks in Harajuku.

Stuck In Customs: A Little Village near Mount Fuji

Another Show Suggestion

On Netflix, there is a new show called “Have a Good Trip on Psychadelics” that is absolutely hilarious. There are funny stories from Anthony Bourdain, Carrie Fisher, and a ton of others.

Daily Photo – A Little Village near Mount Fuji

It’s hard to believe how huge Mount Fuji is until you see it in person. It’s so big you can even see it from Tokyo! There is a hike that you can take to the top to see the sunrise. I thought about doing that, but I also heard that the way down is quite slippery and dangerous. Sometimes going uphill on a hike is even easier than downhill.
