Trey’s Bulletproof Coffee Recipe

Have you ever tried Bulletproof Coffee? I have it almost every day and it provides a very good energy balance through the first chunk of the day. There is a recipe on the official site, but I will reduce the recipe to something more simple. That site seems to be trying to upsell some products. The recipe actually works, but you don’t have to follow their links. Here’s my recipe, link-free:

1) 1 full cup of coffee (made from coffee beans or instant)
2) 1-2 tablespoons of MCT oil (available from any health food or bodybuilding shop)
3) 1-2 tablespoons of Unsalted butter

I know it sounds strange to mix butter and oil into your coffee, but it actually helps to slowly deliver the caffeine to your body in the most efficient manner.

Daily Photo – Between Operas

I was in Chengdu near a hot pot place that was entertaining the diners with a little opera variety show. Between shows, the girls would go sit outside and eat snacks, still with all their makeup on. I just kinda sat there and watched them for a while, drinking the whole thing in.

Jamming Out in Tokyo

The Creation of Life Raft for a Death Trip

Hey, how about another mesmerizing making-of video from one of my favorite artists, Android Jones. I find his process to be quite inspirational.

Daily Photo – Jamming Out in Tokyo

Shibuya Crossing in the middle of Tokyo is a paradise for photographers. If you enjoy taking photos of people, this place will provide the maximum bandwidth for you. One time when I was there, I saw a live band playing on one of the corners. They were all dressed in gas masks and I have no idea what they were singing about (it was in Japanese). But, they looked pretty awesome, and I grabbed this shot whilst listening to their inscrutable music.

Social Media Influencers on a Mountain

Becoming an Artist, Episode 2!

Welcome to another Wednesday here on the blog, which means another episode of Becoming an Artist, Season 1! We shot a bunch of these while in Africa and I’m happy to share them now here on the blog with you.

Here is episode 2!

Daily Photo – Social Media Influencers on a Mountain

I don’t know how I got caught up in this scene. It was my first time hanging out with supposed “Influencers.” Most of the time, I’m by myself, taking photos and wandering around for an interesting photo. These Influencers seemed obsessed with taking photos of one another, illustrating how they are experiencing nature. Many Influencers are very weird.

A Hot Day in Papua New Guinea

Spotify Playlist Fun

Here is a new playlist of mine on Spotify for you to enjoy. It’s made up of songs that I listen to on a lazy, relaxing afternoon at Burning Man.

Daily Photo – A Hot Day in Papua New Guinea

only spent a week in this country, but I’m just going to go ahead and assume it’s always blazing hot. I met this tribesman and we had a hard time having a discussion. I told him I thought he looked awesome and I liked all the decor. He sort of nodded as if he understood what I was saying. And then I said he looked pretty fit and asked him if he worked out. He was a bit more confused by this question.

Bel in the Middle

The New Critique Show!

Well, here’s yet another experiment in fun! I have a goofy and funny neighbor here in New Zealand who is a photographer. We decided to try out a new concept for a critique show. Here’s episode 1! Tell us what ya think! 🙂

Daily Photo – Bel in the Middle

Man, these guys loved Bel. They really loved her hair. The couldn’t stop touching it and she was just giggling in her silly way. All in all, we spent about half a day in this little village. You’ll see the whole thing in an upcoming episode that we are premiering on YouTube from Africa.
