Every Country in the World Video Project!

Brett Newski Life Upside Down (web).jpg

Hey Pals, this morning I'm announcing my most ambitious music video project to date, "195 pretty good dance moves."

Screen Shot 2018-06-25 at 10.34.03 AM.png

I'm gathering footage of my friends and allies dancing in EVERY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD. Yes, all 195 countries. This video is going to be insane if we can pull it off! Obviously I don't have friends in every country, so I need your help...

We've already got footage from Sweden, South Africa, Austria and Argentina.

This is a massive mission, but with your help we can crush it. The good news is its easy peasy to shoot. Here is a link to the facebook group. Please join up if you're keen to contribute footage or connections. Below are the easy directions to submit. :)

We can use this group as a checklist. It also has basic guidelines for the footage.

*If you have friends (or friends of friends) in smaller, "lesser known" countries, I'd love if you could connect us.

This is gonna be dope! Thanks everyone ❤️

The thing that threatens our sanity most

"CAN'T GET ENOUGH" SONG PREMIERE

Panic attacks were becoming pretty routine. I'd have 8 windows open on my computer all at once. A new email would come in and completely derail me from what I was working on. By the end of the day I'd have worked 10 hours with no visible progress. It was taxing to have little control over my own brain.

 

How do you focus on anything with the relentless bombardment of media from all sides all the time? It's a digital mine field of instagrams, amazon offers, free new music, emails, bla bla blah etc, the list goes on forever. 

 

In the hyper speed of modern times, it's not about what you consume online, BUT what you DON'T consume online. 

 

How good are you at deflecting media? That is now a primary skill in becoming an effective human being. 

 

Can't Get Enough is a song about social media addiction and how it is a legitimately powerful drug we should acknowledge. How do you use it for good while keeping it at arms length? While it is a wonderful time to be alive, we're all trying to find the balance while shielding ourselves from the noise. 

 

Put the horse blinders on, or it'll be a wobbly and unproductive ride. Let's break free of the phone and live in the present physical space as much as humanly possible:)

*I wrote this track with my good pal Aaron Berg

Cheapest "on-the-go" meals for a happier brain.

Being on a budget and on-the-road, I've been endlessly looking for good cheap food that boosts happiness and energy. Here are the three best mega cheap power eats when you're traveling (or at home). 

*Be sure to read the key details below the drawing :)

Plain Yogurt & Nuts: watch out for all the added sugar in so many yogurt brands. That will crush energy and lead to a sulking crash after that nasty siff sugar buzz wears off. I recommend Greek Gods yogurt plain with lots of walnuts added. Massive protein punch. This comes out to about $2 per meal at most.

 

Hard Boiled Eggs: ultimate breakfast! I like to crack the eggs on my car window (and peel them) in the AM when I'm on the road. Then I put the shells in a plant for fertilizer or give them to a squirrel for a nest. Not the most massive meal ever but 2-3 eggs hold me over for most of the morning. Comes out to about $1 per meal if you're getting good cage free eggs. 

 

Peanut Butter & Banana: this is great any time of day. The most delicious of the options. Who doesn't love to smash peanut butter for yum yum good times? Get natural PB. This comes to about $.75 per meal. Nice boost in the AM or afternoon. 

 

PS. I'd be keen to hear your thoughts in the comments section of the new "Ride" video shot over Route 66.

Once I stopped worrying about what other people think and accepted the fact that I'm not one of the "cool kids", life began falling into place. This is a "weirdos unite" song...a tune for the underdog living on the fringe or outside the box. 

What was your moment that inspired you to embrace your weirdness and stop worrying about fitting in? Keen to hear your thoughts in the youtube comments.
