How to Say Thank You in 30 Languages

Thank You 30 Ways from Hyperfluent on Vimeo.

In honor of Thanksgiving, here’s how to say “Thank You” in 30 languages. Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Eva and I had so much fun working on this. We’re amazed by how many people shot videos and sent in videos from around the world last night. We’re still getting videos sent in, which we’ll use for next year. I say it in Arabic, Jessie in Hebrew, and Aidan closes out the video. Fun!

The Most Astounding Fact

If you ever question your existence — ever need reassurance of your place in the universe — just watch this video.

In it, astrophysicist Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson answers a question he was asked during an interview with TIME magazine: “What is the most astounding fact you can share with us about the Universe?”

His answer is nothing short of exquisite.

“So that when I look up at the night sky, and I know that yes we are part of this universe. We are in this universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the universe is in us…

There’s a level of connectivity. That’s really what you want in life. You want to feel connected. You want to feel relevant, wanna feel like you’re a participant… That is precisely what we are,  just by being alive.”

the story of wynwood walls

Here in South Florida, art is a pretty big deal. There’s a neighborhood in Miami, known as Wynwood-Edgewater, which has transformed into MIA’s major art district. (It’s actually two neighborhoods, sometimes collectively termed as Midtown.) It’s proof positive that art and business can exist harmoniously and that art, especially public art, can change a community.

HERE COMES THE NEIGHBORHOOD, a docuseries exploring the power of public art and innovation in communities, is basing it’s pilot season around the Arts District of Wynwood. Watch the video above for a great look into how one of Wynwood’s public art spaces came to be.

To learn more about the walls, visit the Wynwood Walls website.

Ok, so I’ve been SUPER busy, totally neglecting this blog. I didn’t have a post planned this week at all, but this morning I got an e-mail from Darcy Prendergast of Oh Wow Yeah with a new light painting video. Now, you all know how much I love light painting, so I couldn’t resist sharing it.

You can also watch their other collaboration, Lucky.
