I cried like a baby watching this video yesterday. Shane, his family, and friends really touched me. I think what got to me the most is Shane’s wit, sarcasm, and long face, which remind me of my youngest brother’s.
Imagining my brother living in Shane’s position made my heart hurt. But seeing Shane’s attitude and will to embark on this roadtrip share very powerful messages.
Hearing his dad explain his son’s Spinal Muscular Atrophy diagnosis as standing at the edge of an abyss was especially significant. I think people encounter situations every day where they have to decide how they will react: positively or negatively. This video, as well as a shorter version here, really convey what it means to live a positive life in the face of adversity. I immensely admire Shane’s strength, as well as the strength and love of his family.
This is a truly touching video. I urge you, if you feel so inclined, to watch and help Shane achieve his goal. Shane and Soul Pancake would like to raise funds to make a documentary of Shane’s roadtrip. You can read more and donate here and you can check out Shane’s Tumblr blog here.

The Outside Lands 2013 lineup is out!
I have to admit, I wish there was a little more variety from some of the big names at Coachella.
I’m stoked to see RHCP, Band of Horses, Vampire Weekend, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs again. Also, I think it’d be rad if Karen O and Trent Reznor sang Immigrant Song live.
The lineup seems pretty short so I am looking forward to seeing who they add.
