In the history of HYDLE.com… this ridiculous “TSOIGDH” entry marks my 999th public blog post since May of 2009 – When I started this crazy world of blogging ideas, thoughts and Genius vs. Not Genius intermanents and social media successes or failures.

So for the sake of getting google credit for it…


Turning shit on it’s god damn head is going to be my 1 single inspiration for the next 999 blogpost entries. I can’t wait to open up my connection layer for all my loyal readers… so I can start finding out who you actually are.

Cheers to 999!


Chipotle – Back to the start

[YouTube] <— 4,429,478 [Behind the Scenes] <— 44,751 Congratulations to Chipotle for airing their first national television commercial. Back to the Start was a YouTube web release back in August and carries you through the story of Chipotle, told through the practices of a farmer.

“The film, by film-maker Johnny Kelly, depicts the life of a farmer as he slowly turns his family farm into an industrial animal factory before seeing the errors of his ways and opting for a more sustainable future. Both the film and the soundtrack were commissioned by Chipotle to emphasize the importance of developing a sustainable food system.”

1000% Genius – should have been a Super Bowl ad.

Buy the song and support The Chipotle Cultivate Foundation.

HYDLE + Nabor D – Sherpa House in Golden Colorado

[YouTube] <— 0 The Sherpa House in Golden, CO is amazing. Be sure you drink their authentic Sherpa House Ale from odell brewing company.

The Sherpa House restaurant and cultural center brings you the best of the Nepalese, Sherpa, Tibetan and Indian cuisine from the Himalaya. At least that is what the menu says… and take my word for it – the Tikka Masala and free range Yak Sizzla is amazing here – and affordable.


Bon Appetit

2009 Media Elements

In 2009 I averaged just over 69 captured media elements a day which is directly on par with the last three years.

I shot 9,582 videos and 14,304 photos on the canon. 1,421 came from the iPhone which is no longer a daily pocket device for me.
