It’s that special time of the week where I condense the very best of my world wide web wanderings into a single post. As always, you can follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest for all my wonderful web wanderings as they occur throughout the week.
Onward to the WWW!
Because when you stop to consider how an animated movie about talking toys doesn’t make sense, your whole world crumbles in upon itself. Wait until the barrage of existential crises at the end, and never look at these Toy Story movies the same way again.
It’s a Kickstarter documentary called Present Perfect, and it’s about a preschool cohabiting with a nursing home. I worked in a similar environment during my YouthWorks summer with Milwaukee, and this trailer left me with old familiar yet altogether new goosebumps. Just beautiful.
“The Unexpected Benefits of Being Stuck” by Branden Harvey via Storyline. I’d never heard of this guy before getting sucked into his post about stuckness. Paragraph after paragraph, Branden’s journey to Portland struck so many chords with me in my own trek to Charlotte. If you feel stuck wherever you are, maybe his words will encourage you, too.
Because I knew I was stuck in Portland, it forced me to look at my life differently. Nothing was disposable. Everything was an opportunity. And when I decided to choose to make my life what I wanted it to be, instead of complaining about how stuck I was, everything changed.
So, turns out John Mark McMillan has a wife. Turns out she can sing, too. Here’s “Heart Won’t Stop,” the first of five upcoming lyric videos from John Mark and Sarah McMillan’s new EP, You Are the Avalanche. I got an advanced download from attending their live album recording in Charlotte, and I can attest it’s fantastic.
There’s always ONE way outta feelin shitty. And it NEVER fails….. Give.
