Isn't this the way you feel sometimes?

My beautiful sister-in-law sent this video to me. And people, it's a GEM.

This man truly takes you through all the emotions, as he contemplates his double rainbow. Things get a little intense in the middle, but he pulls himself together by the end!


"What does it all MEAN?"

The YouTube commenters have been a little harsh, but I think it's great! That his double rainbow moves him so much. Also, not to laugh at his expense, but isn't it funny how his camera shakes in time with his sobs?

I want to meet this guy. I wish I could get this excited over a rainbow. Think about it, these are sobs of joy! Whens the last time you cried over something so beautiful..?? I'm kind of jealous.

Bahahaha I literally just laughed out loud for three minutes straight. "It's TOO MUCH!!" He seems super awesome (and high out of his gourd). He reminds me of this guy who I was next to when I watched the firework show on Town Lake in a kayak. He kept describing the fireworks and saying things like "IT'S A BOWTIE" and "REMEMBER THIS ONE FOLKS" and "RAIN OF FIIIRE!"

@Le Tigre - Right!! That's what I'm saying. We need more people like him in our cynical world.

@thefirstkitchen - LOL, and *I* just laughed at your description of the fireworks guy! "IT'S A BOWTIE." !! Too good.

Come to think of it, some fireworks do sorta look like bowties.

Can't wait to meet you at the Bleet-up! I think I just might go. Even though I've failed to keep up with my blog. Blah. You'll see me, I'll be the loud one with the giant phoenix tattoo on my back. :-) Hard to miss.

That is amazing! I love people like that! I can't believe so many people reacted negatively... we definitely need people who live and experience the moment. That video was awesome!

Austin Eavesdropper said...

@JuliaMarie - YES, I completely agree! Someone even said, "what a sorry excuse for an American." ?? Haha...what is that supposed to mean?

Anyway, I love him. He gave an interview to CBS News yesterday, and said: "I'm just a vessel. The universe flows through me." I want him to be my guru.

@Le Tigre - YAY!! Now I can finally figure out where you blog! ;D Also, giant phoenix tattoo? Sold. I've got birds and leaves on the back of my neck, so between the two of us, we're a wildlife reserve.

Do you have any other tattoos? I'm thinking of getting fruits and vegetables tattooed on the tops of my feet (because I love fruits and vegetables), or words on the inside of my forearm. Except the RIGHT words are really hard to select, so I'm looking out for some that strike me. And that I won't feel embarrassed about when I'm a grandma.

OH. Speaking of. I was with my family last weekend at Lake Whitney, and spotted a girl who had the words, "CRAZY BITCH" tattooed on her back. LOL.

Le Tigre said...

That's hilarious. I don't think I could or would ever get something like that tattooed on me, why would I want other people to know I'm a crazy bitch?
My Phoenix tattoo is not yet done, I actually got it about five years back and one day a few months ago decided I wanted it to cover my entire back ( it was only the upper half ) so I made the wings bigger! I have a Buddha tattoo on my hip and am waiting for a friend of mine to sketch a geisha girl for me. Also, I have loved Julie Andrews since I first met her when I was 3 and am planning on getting a Julie Andrews pin up! :-)

Austin Eavesdropper said...

@Le Tigre - Julie Andrews!! That's great! Also, the Buddha tattoo on your hip. VERY cool. This whole discussion is making me eager to go back and get my second.

And my Dad - hi Daddy! - is probably cringing right now as he reads this. :)

Le Tigre said...

Haha. Sorry Dad.
