Hobbiton – Stuck in Customs

The Party Tree in Hobbiton

96,000,000 Black Balls in LA Reservoir

I found this short documentary on Reddit pretty interesting. The only thing I didn’t understand is why the balls are black instead of white. Also, it’s hard for me to believe that a little bit of that plastic doesn’t leech into the water supply. They never exactly gave the molecular make-up of the balls.

Daily Photo – The Party Tree in Hobbiton

It’s been a few years since I have been to Matamata on the North Island and seeing these photos make me want to return. The farmers that originally owned (and still manage) the Hobbiton Movie Set have always been very generous and kind to me, so I try to repay them with as many photos as possible. In a way, this is an easy task, since it’s impossible to take a bad photo there.

Bel Between Shoots

Michael Pollan on Kevin Rose

This was a great podcast. Michael Pollan’s new book is “How to Change Your Mind,” and I recommend it! He’s a well-known author/scientist who wrote “The Omnivore’s Dilemma” and other great books. Anyway, this one talks a lot about the unexpected benefits of psychedelics and all the new science behind them.
I’m always enjoyed doing psychedelics and it has absolutely changed my mind – for the better.

Daily Photo – Bel Between Shoots

This was taken when Bel was filming a new video tutorial while we were in Hobbiton. You can get that Organize Your Photos tutorial right here! I took this photo about halfway through shooting when we took a break inside the Green Dragon. It’s the famous pub from the movie… that was kind of where we parked up and stored all our gear!
