My fiancé, Kirstin, regularly attends a CrossFit class, and about 2 weeks ago she and many of her classmates traveled to Columbus Georgia to participate in an event called The Rumble By The River. The event was long (about 9 hours) and it looked like quite a challenge. It started off with a whitewater rafting & row, then a run for several miles. Later on in the dat teams would switch out competing of various weightlifting challenges, and then finally an intense full-body timed workout.
Even though I don’t attend that CrossFit group, I tagged along only planning on taking a few photos of Kirstin and cheering her along. Somehow I got talked into being one of the unofficial event photographers, so I took way more photos than I had planned. Since it was such a fun and unique event, I decided to put my camera in video mode and make a quick video of what it was like at the event. A small sampling is below!
What happens when Thome Yorke of Radiohead and Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers starts a band? You get Atoms For Peace. In my mind Thom Yorke can do no wrong, I’m a huge fan of his and all his projects to date, and this one is no different. The entire album “AMOK” is absolutely worth a listen, but below is a bit of a sampler. Two songs from their album, and one snippet from a live DJ set. The first track “Default” is among my new favorite songs I’ve heard in quite a while.
I can’t even tell you how much I wish I was in the room for the live DJ set in that last video.
I recently returned from yet another trip to the village of Gbetnchal in Togo, West Africa and it was an amazing experience! I had the opportunity to put together a few videos to update people back in the States about what was going on in Togo this summer.
