I’ve been looking around for some great reading material and I’ve also been listening to a number of podcasts these days in search of new material and inspiration. If you live your life just looking at your Twitter and Facebook feeds, you kind of become more stupid. What the masses are sharing isn’t always good quality content.
I found out about Rich Roll through a podcast and ordered his book today entitled ‘Finding Ultra’ I can’t wait for the book to arrive (Only around November) but in the meantime I found a great interview with him. He came back from terrible health, alcoholism and depression to become one of the fittest men in the world “Rich Roll: Story of Redemption, Personal Triumph and Ultra-Fitness” YouTube
‘Fat, sick and nearly dead’ My girlfriend and I watched this last night and it’s an incredibly moving story about one guy wo decided to change his life around by reversing his health issues by going on a 60 day juice cleanse. Through that journey he inspires people and especially helps one guy come back from the brink of what surely would have been death. Watch the full film here, it’s an incredibly moving piece. YouTube
‘Nature is speaking’ We continue to destroy the planet on a monumental scale, and we never hear the earth talking. This is an incredible series of videos, narrated by Hollywood actors and it contains some great words and beautiful imagery. Watch all the videos on the link. YouTube
‘The Little-Known Story of How The Shawshank Redemption Became One of the Most Beloved Films of All Time’ A dud at the box office when it opened 20 years ago, The Shawshank Redemption now perennially tops IMDb’s favorite-movies list—the ultimate in “guy cry” cinema. A story of studio maneuvering, big paychecks deferred, and well-earned roof suds. VanityFair
And for the last one, a bit of fun. Please enjoy Bill Murray singing Bob Dylan’s ‘Shelter from the storm’ I don’t know why I’ve been watching this continuously for the last 24 hours, but it is great. YouTube
