The Science of the Soul

As someone who grew up with a dad who did past-life regressions in our living room on a regular basis I reveled in this Science of the Soul piece.

“Won’t You Be My Neighbor”

The first and last time Mister Rogers sang “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” on TV. My heart!

Fantastic Fungi

That’s the trailer for Fantastic Fungi, a feature-length documentary about the worldwide network of mushrooms & mycelium that thrives beneath our feet. I am beyond intrigued and am a complete mushroom aficionado.

Cooking Lobster

This scene! I will never think of steak the same way. “We should have gotten steak, because they don’t have legs, they don’t run around.”

Moon Ribas

I am currently attending The House of Beautiful Business in Lisbon and one of the speakers that stopped me in my tracks was Moon Ribas. She has implants that let her feel earthquakes happening around the earth. She is the co-founder of the Cyborg foundation, together with Neil Harrison.

Fascinating.

Saying Goodbye to the Person You Used To Be

SoulPancake traveled to Springfield, Missouri to visit Kyle who is putting on “A Funeral for the People We Used to Be.” He is collecting submissions from people of all the things they want to let go about the past so he can burn them in a cardboard viking ship. Submit yours here.

Kyle is the person who had a Viking funeral for his 20s.

Marco Polo Video Chat App

I just discovered the Marco Polo Video Chat App and I am intrigued. With my family and a lot of my friends living in different parts of the world, I often find it hard to stay in touch beyond just text and email. Marco Polo seems to have cracked this nut. You can talk/ aka record a video message when you’re on the go, between appointments, whenever it’s convenient for you. Your friend can watch in real time or later. Unlike other video apps, you don’t need to be live. It’s safe and private. So, that means, no likes, no comments. Dreamy!

Lost in a Rational World

SLOMO from Josh Izenberg on Vimeo.

Disillusioned with his life, Dr. John Kitchin abandons his career as a neurologist and moves to Pacific Beach. There, he undergoes a radical transformation into SLOMO, trading his lab coat for a pair of rollerblades and his IRA for a taste of divinity.

I like SLOMO. The world would be a better place if we paid more attention to what lights us up and follow that. Wholeheartedly follow that.
