Some ooaddles from before the departure, part 2 of the USA road-trip, a few sketches from the road coming next:
‘Running’ into the team of professional runner Jason Lester’s helpers in Williamsburg, VA. Jason is running cross-country for Nike’s ‘Journey for a Better World‘. Then meeting several people in Myrtle Beach and Isle of Palms during an awing sunrise. Music by Brian R. 25.5 – SC: Myrtle Beach and Isle Palm Sunrise “What’s your philosophy … Read more
Road video featuring “What’s Your Philosophy of Life?” interviews in North Carolina, visiting Duke University and UNC (see the travel photos). Music remix by Rafael Murillo. Learning about health rights, collaboration between campuses, and diverse philosophies. Next up the North Carolina diaries, and travel photos and video from a very contrasted stay in South Carolina.
Travel photos after a visit to Duke University and University of North Carolina, next up the video from the Research Triangle, and other stories.
This is the Road Video from Washington D.C. and area: featuring “What’s your philosophy of life?” interviews and shots of some of the historical monuments. Music by Jay Nada.
First day in DC, Georgetown area. Had never seen the campus. The weather warmed significantly. Skin showed. We got a cheap-ish room across the Potomac – one of the great advantages of traveling with someone. Bought some beers nearby, and met a friendly guy, Moe, who wanted to decide whether he should take his girlfriend … Read more
28th March Day 3 on the road. Tired already – which is never a good sign this early in the trip. We left on Monday 26th, end afternoon. Many things weren’t ready so to speak, including ‘real’ work – that is, ‘jobs’ (both Redrik and I work part-time gigs which help keep us going, despite … Read more
Travel photos from Washington D.C. and the surrounding area, short stay – more soon! Pictures from ooamerica part 2 will be posted on a new page in the Photos tab
This is the first video of ooamerica part 2 – a re-intro focused on the theme: “What’s your philosophy?” Driving through New Jersey to the Welding Room radio studios, then whizzing by Philadelphia. Music by Jay Nada. Next chapter will be Washington DC and Virginia – some politics and history there… Thanks again to Rik … Read more
D-Day! After number of trials and tribulations, we (Redrik and I) are now a few hours away from our departure from the New York area. More than 6,000 miles and 24 states await… And we’ll be launching the Kickstarter campaign in the next days, more on that soon. On air – The Welding Room Our … Read more
March 13th The Road-Test “Virgin, Mobile” – the promotional and default ringtone of my cheap pay-as-you-go phone sings through the room. I look at the name displayed on the blinking screen: Redrik. The date is March 13th. The road-test is scheduled today at 1pm. I’m confident Redrik is flying-colors-ready (FCR). I glance at the time … Read more
Hi all, this is ooa revo (in italics), I hope everyone is going well. The following is my friend and colleague’s first post on ooamerica – I’m confident Redrik’s voice and creative input will strike a resonant contrast with my own dull-buzzard’s de-gurgitations. In the near future we will likely experiment with combined notes and … Read more
Very last pictures from New York City… Departure is imminent, please fasten your seat belts, tell your friends, share the road! Also included the intro picture for ooamerica part 2 – this is not part of the ooamerica picture series, a longer-term project, though similar in style.
‘Video interlude’ featuring NY taxi drivers and a ‘surprise’: part 2 is finally near! After wading through number of obstacles and delays – there are some still – we’re almost there! If this is your first time here, welcome to ooamerica! (more about the project and the movie trailer). If you’re back, thanks! And thanks … Read more
Feb 29 – Leap Day Every life is, to some degree, the story of loss. And renewal. But while the latter brings energy, joy, a feeling of goodness, the prior may take years, or a lifetime, to ever understand – to cope with. It begins with the loss of an age, which we dubiously call … Read more
