My good friend and former coworker, Andy Wallace, one of the best photojournalists in the country, put this video together for us as a wedding gift. 5 years ago we made our guests hike 3 miles to an off grid hut so we could summit a peak with Mt Rainier in the background for vows and wedding photos. We re-did the ceremony the next day at our blueberry farm reception for folks who couldn't make the hike. I wore my grandmother's wedding dress from 1946 (also my mom’s dress) at BOTH events (but I didn't hike in it, per her request - ha! I changed at the peak.) Make sure you watch at least til you get to my buddy, Alex, singing Tennessee Whiskey - you won't regret it. Here's to another 5 years of adventure!
Thanks for your feedback in yesterday's editorial board meeting. I ruminated on the topic and this is what I realized Russell Brand got the most wrong....
Just got back from butchering chickens. I watched the Russel Brand “censored” videos on the way (YouTube removed one of his videos for saying something positive about ivermectin). I’d like your feedback on it all as I prepare a video.
Sharing this comment on the Russell Brand video to show two things I discuss regularly: hero worship on the internet & how that leads to a similar environment as the one I left in corporate news. When audiences seek the messenger over the messages, emotionally attaching to a personality rather than digesting information with skepticism regardless of who’s saying it, it creates similar bias echo chambers where creators simply stick to safe topics, applauding their audience’s assumed heroes and attacking obvious villains.
When your 2-year old helps butcher chickens. 😬 Jack stayed far away so as not to be confused for poultry as well…But hey, now we have a freezer stocked with the fruits of our friends’ labor.
