Produced to help promote the upcoming “Bruce Lee 75th Birthday Celebration” (Bruce Lee Night) San Francisco Giants vs New York Mets at AT&T Park in San Francisco on July 7, 2015. Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum interviews Bruce Lee about, well, pitching! The footage of Lee was taken from a 1971 television interview by Canadian Pierre Berton (from his self named show).
Want to feel humbled by our insignificance? Here is an entertaining little video which explains that while our galaxy, our universe, may be teeming with intelligent life, but why we’re unlikely to encounter it.

Bravo.
No, this was not done in the wild, but with elaborate camera set-ups using a Phantom HD High-Speed digital camera shooting at 1200 frames per second in a controlled environment. The results are glorious. If you watch it to the end, they show how it was all done.
Did you see the incredible pictures of Saturn taken from the Cassini Spacecraft? Images from the Hubble Space Telescope? NASA has thousands of incredible photographs of, well, the heavens… all available online. Click on the photograph below to start a random slideshow of just a few of these stunning vistas. Check back from time to time, I will update the show.
This is a brief talk by Professor Mark Muesse of Rhodes College who makes a compelling argument for embracing Mysticism as a way to understand the nature of ultimate reality (as opposed to Theism or Atheism). I dunno, it makes sense to me. Dare I say it? Maybe I am a Mystic?
Please Say Something is short animated film by David OReilly. It is awesomely beautiful and his other work is also fantastic. OReilly is a young Irish film maker based in LA.
