Unedited Peru Moments

Here's a collection of unedited video that usually just sits on Flickr. Though normally I would just keep them on my Flickr page, there are members of my family who have never heard of Flickr. (Hi Mom!!)

So here are a couple unedited shots from there. I've resized them to be small so they don't take up the whole page. Head over to my flickr page if you want to see them in normal size as well as pictures from my time there as well.

More edited footage will be coming as the week goes on. Hopefully.

Goodbye To Bee - A Lip Dub

The first of what will probably be plenty of videos of my time in Peru. This one is a LipDub that I made after spending 16hrs crossing the Andies, heading into Cusco, Peru. Came upon an epiphany while delirious for lack of sleep and dedicate this to B.

"Don't Hold Me Close
Youre Not The One
That I Can Most
Rely Upon
But I'll Be Here
When You Are Gone
And Maybe Time Will Just Make A Sweetheart Of You"

Watch in Quicktime. Or, even more super cool, subscribe to my videos with my RSS Feed. It's made for iPod/iPhone/iWhatevers.

The Shitter Song in Peru

I´m in Peru!

At the moment, I´m in the town of Pisco, where a major earthquake hit and has decimated this area. People are living in tents; bathing in garbage; looting the homes. I´ve come here to work with Burners Without Borders, a relief organization that has grown out of many of us who participate at Burning Man.

I´ve embedded a video above that was shot last week here to promote one of our latest projects. (NOTE: I didn´t make the video and it was made the week prior of me arriving, but my videos are coming!) This project is about the creation of appropriate toilet facilities for families here in Pisco. The one above will be used by approximatly 130 familes. This is serious stuff, my friends. I don´t know about you, but I do most of my best thinking while sitting on the toilet. Think of all the help this will bring to this community!

For the past couple days, I have been making temporary schoolhouses made out of bamboo. Their school is demolished, and these will be used for the next year until the school is rebuilt.

Want to donate or help in some way? Check the Burners Without Borders website or shoot me an email. You can also find the org on such web2.0 sites like The Facebooks. Use your google, you know you can chip in. If this boy from the city can do it, you can too.

I miss my home and my life, but sometimes you have to put those things on hold.
