The Delicious Meat Sludge Factory

From Rare Earth. I kind of want to do this story again as a real documentary, with an hour and tons of stock footage. It seems like it would be a cool ‘follow the thread’ type tale through a bunch of different individual experiences. Maybe when I hook up with Nebula… Hope you enjoy it!…

The Swiss Colony of Uruguay

From Rare Earth. No bang, no excitement. Just some farmers living life. I thought the Volk deserved a story, too.

Are the CharrĂșa Extinct?

How Does Uruguay Exist?

From Rare Earth. Sorry I took a week off, it was my birthday and I wasn’t really feeling the birthday work. This is somewhat of an update to that old Laos introductory video idea. I had so much footage of Artigas I kind of had to. Hopefully this helps set the scene for future episodes.…

This Dog Licked My Foot

From Rare Earth. I hope you’ve enjoyed this little self-indulgent segue into our new season in Uruguay. The coming episodes feature those classic Uruguayan vacation highlights of Cuban refugees, dead cows, light drug use, and a splash of genocide. Don’t worry, I’ll keep it light. Enjoy!

The Roof That Keeps Bermuda Alive

From Rare Earth. This is the second in my little two part working holiday to Bermuda. Another somewhat happy story. After this we’re headed to Uruguay, a country I knew virtually nothing about until I showed up at the airport. Like Bermuda, it will be a lot less heavy than our last few seasons, which…

The Balkan Series in Full

From Rare Earth. I added a little outro to the Yugoslavia episodes and mushed them all together. The transitions are a little wonky, but presumably next time I do this I’ll be writing it that way in advance. Before we move on to a new country and back to the old style, I just wanted…

The City Where They Murdered Yugoslavia

From Rare Earth. I’m not at all happy with how this video turned out. It has so much unachieved potential. But men tried to murder me just a few hours before I shot this and Francesco was traumatized and had to go home immediately, taking the only remaining camera with him. So I did what…

Where Two Bullets Killed Millions

From Rare Earth. And so it begins. Choosing which people to focus on in history to paint a metaphorical picture is hard. Pronouncing names is hard. Summarizing nearly impossible to summarize history with only a day to write it is hard. But I’m trying! All I ask is that people take the full picture of…

The Rise of the Yugoslavs

From Rare Earth. This season was the toughest to film so far. Not because there wasn’t beauty everywhere, but because we were mugged/attempted murdered very violently and lost all our gear at the absolute worst time. So… the footage isn’t what I want, the script isn’t what I want, but honestly? I’m just proud we…

The Stone Lion Racism Test
