Decide | Persist

Cargo Cult Science, 1974 - CalTech Commencement Address: "The first principle is that you must not fool yourself—and you are the easiest person to fool. So you have to be very careful about that. After you've not fooled yourself, it's easy not to fool other scientists. You just have to be honest in a conventional way after that." -Richard Feynman

Let us get on with it...

Let us dispense with pleasantries and get to the matter at hand.

Shaped by Hand from Elias K. on Vimeo.

This short film features Vince McIntyre, a Canadian farmer who is preserving a way of life from a bygone age. Despite the challenges, Vince is farming without machinery, inspired by techniques he observed as a boy in post-war Ireland. Vince shares his experience of working with the land and why he still believes in doing so by hand.

More of the music by Jeremy Harris & Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith (as the band Ever Isles) can be heard here:

The Art of Fighting // Short Documentary from Alex Barnes on Vimeo.

In 1999 Hussain Sadiqi fled the remote mountains of central Afghanistan as the Taliban stepped up their violent persecution of the Hazara people. This was to be the start of Hussain’s epic 20,000km journey to Australia. 10 years later, this self confessed ‘nomad’ is about to give up his new life in his new country to pursue a life long dream - a dream that was born over 20 years ago, when a young Hussain first saw a torn and battered picture of his life long hero, Bruce Lee.
