Music

Ever since my teenage years music has been one of my greatest passions. In high school I started a record label to help my friends record and promote their music. I am still a huge music fan and try to attend shows as frequently as possible.

Tattoos are a huge part of my identity as I've been going under the needle since I was 16 years old. love the idea of permanent art and the history and heritage of the tattoo culture. Most of my tattoos are designed like old school Americana tattoos.

Living in Boulder is great because I can ride my bike and hike in the summer as well as snowboard and snowshoe in the winter. Aside from the sports I like to play I also like to play fantasy football with my friends and host a podcast about it.

In an effort…

This post is just fragmented thought, I could spend the time to develop it more clearly, but I’m a busy boy with work right now always. Another time perhaps. Hopefully you find it worth reading and develop an idea of your own.

In an effort to make this thing real I am posting despite an extremely busy day. Here is something to think about since I just watched the movie The Prestige (which is awesome and if you haven’t seen it yet I highly recommend it).

Quote: “Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called “The Pledge”. The magician shows you something ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird or a man. He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course… it probably isn’t. The second act is called “The Turn”. The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you’re looking for the secret… but you won’t find it, because of course you’re not really looking. You don’t really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn’t clap yet. Because making something disappear isn’t enough; you have to bring it back. That’s why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call “The Prestige”.”

This quote uses magic as the subject but it can easily be abstracted as a metaphor for life as a whole (what can’t with enough imagination right?). So if what we are doing now (working, living, building) is The Pledge, is our death The Turn, and what we accomplish that exists beyond us The Prestige?

Or perhaps, our work/life/building (whatever you want to call it) is The Pledge, and our death is The Turn, but The Prestige is never occurs, it is the secret we can never realize. (see: “Now you’re looking for the secret… but you won’t find it, because of course you’re not really looking.”)

Or more realistically it is a movie that has themes that can be stretched to be what you want, cause most likely the interpretation you create was never intended. But that’s rather boring, so I will opt out of that possible answer.
