Explosion of winners at the 0:18 and 1:20 marks! Easily one of the greatest thrills of my life – getting closer to THE DREAM of winning lifetime Coachella tickets! But this year, we just got merch. HAHA!
Coachella for 7 years and counting. 4 years of Carpoolchella in the bus. And we’re damn ready for 2012!!
Take yourself up to the higher standard, which is always one step up from where you currently stand. And spend the time to think about why you believe in certain things, quantify your reasons because you’re worth more than a shrug off the shoulder. Own up to the decisions you make in your life, and offer no excuses for your shortcomings precisely because you acknowledge them as such. Belief should never be predicated on convenience, and life is too short to weave pretension as fact.
To whom it may concern, the letter can only be addressed to yourself. Dr. Seuss is a genius ahead of his time. “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”
As the final months of my 20’s draw to a close, the greatest revelations of my decade have decidedly turned towards the grace and tempered benevolence of nature. And although it is far easier to selfishly believe that the world revolves around yourself (which is true to an extent), I increasingly discover my own (ir)relevance outside the self perpetuating wheel of the modern world. F the system and everything else that tells you who you should be. The real world is not found in the jealousy of material goods and avarice. Listen instead to the winds of the desert, the rain of the forest, and believe in the whispers of your own heart.
Desert Dog expects you to know better than what you think you already know right now. Go out, and discover.
To the most beautiful soul I’ve met in my lifetime,
Thank you for blessing me with an abundance of love and affection
For guiding me to always find the happiness in my heart
For being the little ball of adventure that you are in my life
Thank you for creating the fire and chaos in our hearts, that we may continue to dance in each others arms, to the whispering rhythms of the world. That we may continue to dream and catch the horizons that I know we will conquer.
“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.”
– Siddhartha Gautama
