Check out the video at the above URL.

Another Rodney Mullen post from me. It’s not about me. I just want to draw more attention to the man himself.

Normally I’d curate the post a bit more but again, it’s not about me.

Below are a few quotes/notes I found epic while I watched the video myself for the third or fourth time ;p

The ability to just go back to something for the sake of loving it.

Falling becomes normal, and picking yourself up again is normal. Resilience

Technical Wizardry

Because we feel like outsiders and we all find the mutual sense of belonging by shaping our community with what we do.

I trip out because I don’t come out in public a lot, I really don’t.

Sharing and feeling connected with people through what you do.

Danny Way – Falling and getting up

What we learn from getting up again and again it changes you.

I wish we could teach that – MIT Professor

I’m gonna show that in our class – YALE Professor

You are on your own. You gotta go through adversity.

Authenticity pushes out style.

That’s just my personality. It’s always been on my own.

That component has always been in me.. I’m a nerd.

I broke my ankle I feel like I should quit -Rod

No they just break sometimes -Tony

Office Dogs: How Could You Not Love Them?

I don’t own a dog currently but I am a dog lover. Some people are not dog lovers and instead hate or are maybe afraid of the unleashed beasts. Unfortunately, my commercial office lease states we are not allowed to have dogs in the building because of that and other reasons. Sometimes though, we still get visits from man’s best friend and it really adds to the work environment at our agency if they manage to sneak in the back door unseen and unheard.

Doner for Life Blood Type O- Universal Doner


A pint of Guinness contains 0.3mg of iron, less than three per cent of daily adult needs. #Onegative #donateblood #beersafter by @raleightl

When it comes to giving back to your community sometimes it’s not about time or money. It’s easy to think that the only way to give is in the form of time or money but I’ve found another way where when I give it goes farther: my blood. I’m one of the few with the blood type O negative. That means I’m a universal donor which is critical to those with more rare blood types who need transfusions. Luckily I’m not afraid of needles because I make a habit out of donating every time I become eligible again. Lucky the time between donations is long enough that my arms don’t have track marks all over them ;)

We are sophisticated puppets.
