I hesitate to put this in the trip reports section because 1 - its not a trip report and 2 - I don't think that section gets too much traffic.

I listened/watched a video on a lecture from Alan Watts. Powerful stuff. I really liked the message, so I put some different music to it and some footage from trips I've been on during the last 6 months. Now I have a video.

Here's a link to it:


If there's a general consensus to move it - then no problem, just let me know. Otherwise I hope you enjoy.

TRmasta - It was nasty. Hospital nasty. But a hospital visit with lots of laughing so that's always a pleasure.

Adam - naw, that dude is a total scrub. You know this.

And thank you Mattius - I appreciate it guys

Johnny Duke - You got a link to the original lecture. I would like to hear what Mr. Alan Watts said in full.

Very nice indeed. What do you desire?

Man I appreciate the heads up on the Banff Film Fest. I've got a video project in mind that I'll be working on for the next few months I think, so if that one turns out well then I will submit it. If it doesn't then I'll enter this one. Thanks for the support Puzman.

Said - I'm really not sure. I was able to find that segment I used without any music on youtube, but I'm not sure what lecture it came from. Sorry. If I manage to find it I'll post back here.
