PUNO — TRAVEL BITS
PALM SPRINGS & JOSHUA TREE
75℉-F*CKING HOT / 24℃-HOT!
I WENT ON A ROAD TRIP WITH SHEILA LAM, ALLAN TORP, SISILIA PIRING, AND JOSH ROHRER. WE STAYED IN AN ACME HOUSE IN PALM SPRINGS CALLED THE APERTURE. VERY DANISH, VERY MODERN, VERY PALM SPRINGS. THE PERFECT PLACE TO SHOOT AND PLAY. this was my first taste of video.
THE APERTURE HOUSE
We stayed in an ACME house in Palm Springs called The Aperture. Very danish, very modern, very Palm Springs. The perfect place to shoot and play. Come to think of it, this trip was the catalyst for starting ze vlog!
Sheila and I had been chatting it UP about video and, we figured, let's just shoot some stuff. There's absolutely no plan, but we just did it. Sisilia Piring and Josh Rohder, our video conglomerates, also joined in on the fun. No one had a plan. It's probably really obvious in the video (oh, sound and exposure and whatever).
The point I'm trying to make is that planning usually doesn't do balls for you. It is fear that is the mind killer. Dune fans? I've had the video itch and a crap ton of excuses to not get into it. Whenever I get into this mode, I try to surround myself with people that have the itch too. Get cult-y and inspired.
Fortunately, we all drank that video punch and went for it.

Then we finally got into our groove (or maybe we were just delirious) and made some of my favorite videos.
