Tame Impala – The Moment

Yesterday marked the anniversary of Tame Impala’s 2015 release, Currents. To celebrate, the band announced they’re working on a deluxe edition of Currents and unreleased B-sides. Basically, new music is on its way.

The announcement inspired me to take some old GoPro footage that was collecting dust on my hard-drive and pair it with Tame Impala’s “The Moment”, a loud, somewhat jarring declaration that, it’s getting closer.

For me it is the weekend. And it’s always getting closer.

Chayed Out

The Gaslamp Killer – Nissim (with Amir Yaghmai)

Adventure: a weekend spent mountain biking, camping and surfing. With the right attitude, landscape, friends and soundtrack, the space between Friday and Monday expands. We left work clean cut, we returned mangy vagabonds.

Eventually, our mind discards the routine, earmarking the highs and lows that represent the pivotal moments in our story. Through adventure, we add the chapters to turn short stories into epics.

While the weekend warrior recognizes that time will always pass and the important responsibilities of Monday are inevitable, he or she also knows that the weekend’s length is only confined by the ability to create memories – to expand time by writing new chapters.

Music is a backdrop to adventure. But it also provides an index for the memories that mark the unusual turns in our path. Hopefully, the following song inspires the impetus, setting or index to a memorable adventure in your story.
