Time to Cry Tuesday – Old Friend on YouTube

There I was, winding down the night with a last perusal of Facebook when I stumbled upon a post from one of my craziest friends from college. (keep in mind I went to art school). He had linked to a video of an audition he had done for Discovery Channel.

Although I think this would make a great show, what struck me was not its TV-worthy value. It was more that I got to visit with him in his natural habitat, just as I remember him. This is the guy that was always doing things on a grand scale. A visit to his house could involve fire, blades, welding tools, heavy machinery, mud… anything extreme. If I recall, he bartered his rent for house renovations on an old farmhouse the last two years of college.

Never bored at Scott’s house.

And the best part? He has not changed one single bit. (although he has perfected the art of hammer juggling). 

Time and circumstance sometimes have a way of causing you to lose touch with those you loved the most. Friendships sometimes fade, not because you want them to… just because. In defense of social media – people can ebb and flow right back into your life. There is nothing better than the gift of seeing someone again.

Just as you remember them.

Watch this and I dare you  to tell me you are not jealous that I have a friend like this? And check out his work; he is wildly talented.

    That was great. Wasn’t he really skinny (weren’t we all)?

  2. Great audition. Did he get the show? Was it an audition for a series?
