Ever spent hours trying to find a song that “goes” with your video to find that the song costs SEVEN HUNDRED DOLLARS?!? I know right?! I didn’t need a $700 song, I needed, well a DJ Clumsy Vegetarian song!!
Yup I’ve been there. That’s why we started “DJ Clumsy Vegetarian”…because I be droppin’ so many beats. Music by the average person for the average person. Don’t go selling it ya over-achiever but come on, we could all use some “okay” music to go along with our video blog.
Use this music all you want, I just find it fascinating that you can share music for others to use. Link back to here if you wish!
I mean there are some great places to get music for your blog, I like Ben Sound.
But if you want to try downloading for free some DJ Clumsy Vegetarian well then by all means…
Yup, we did it! The first week of August this past Summer we ran “Big Idea Camp 2015” a one day, Amazing race meets Harvard business competition. We had 6 students who formed two teams and competed in 5 different challenges throughout the day. It was nothing short of amazing.
Here’s the Twitter play by play on the day… Remember to follow @BigIdeaCamp on Twitter!
Well I’m glad you asked! We’ve been busy working away on project like the Prairie Spruce Commons Cohousing Project (a first of it’s kind in Regina). We’ve been doing some fun work with KSP Technology that involves potlucks and Nerf gun fights.
Also made friends with a Saskatoon local grocer called “SaskMade Marketplace” just another ridiculously cool story of a home grown Saskatchewan business. Born and raised in Saskatoon. They’re big supporters of supporting local, helping grow our community and sourcing many other Saskatchewan based companies. They do these amazing corporate gift baskets that include all Saskatchewan wares. Pretty sweeet!!
And we’ve had the pleasure of working on one of the coolest projects we’ve ever been a part of, it’s called “4 to 40“. Yup, 4 to 40, that’s the amount of hours you need to hire someone for to be considered an “inclusive employer”.
It’s a project we started working on with Sasktel, the University of Regina Campus For All Program and Creative Options Regina (COR).
I am still on the Alumni Board, and have gone from just being on the Regina Volleyball Club board to President this year. I have a vision to grow Volleyball in this city and province, taking ownership is the only way I know how to create change. (actually I just complained too much and when you complain too much in a no-for-profit you end up doing the work). Brandon just put a website together for the Regina Volleyball Club. See below.
We’ve been busy! Possibly another conference in Regina coming up soon too. We need to follow up what we did last year in #Awesome13 (How to be Awesome Online). We’re thinking “How to be Awesome Offline in an Online World”. Counterintuitive I know. Deep right? That’s what we were going for.
Our province is on a growth spurt right now and it’s amazing to see. We also filmed a few new videos for our marketing page (you can thank Brandon for that).
Enough about me. how he hell have you been?!?
Find a bunch of Strategy Lab’s Resources here:
1. They’re not just out to give tickets, they’re trying to keep Regina safe. My initial impression of “Cops” per se was that of the stereotypical Farva off Super Troopers. You know what I mean, just complete jerk-faces? (Yes you hyphenate jerk-faces) Yeah, they’re nothing like that at all. I met a few while I was in the back for debriefing and they were down to earth normal people. And no they don’t try to give you tickets, if you break the law in front of them they’re going to give you a ticket. A few bad eggs hurts their reputation that’s for sure.
2. They have a very, very difficult job. A lot of the people they deal with have no respect for Cops whatsoever, you can imagine how their interactions usually go. Any time you have an exchange with a Police Officer it’s usually because of something bad happened. They’re the bringers of bad news. It’s incredibly difficult to imagine that in your day-to-day most people you deal with are not happy with you at all, it must affect their mood and attitude over time. Read more
This year marks the 4th annual Coveted Cup in Regina, on July 27th, this three day sports competition founded by Trevor Galon, begins. 32 guys will be competing in the three day grueling event, consisting of a home run derby Friday night, two-on-two beach volleyball Saturday morning, doubles tennis Saturday afternoon, and ends off with golf on Sunday.
The teams are randomly put together a week in advance in the annual (stressful) Coveted Cup draft. Whoever raised the most money for KidSport gets last pick of a partner. The people who raised the least amount of money pick first. You want last pick of a partner to ensure you’re not stuck with a dud. Arguably the most important part of Coveted Cup.
It has evolved a lot in the past four years. Here’s a post I did about Coveted Cup in 2012, The second Annual Coveted Cup.
We also host a Cabaret Saturday night at Pure, all proceeds going to KidSport.
How much money is raised? We’re already just under 10K for KidSport. Pretty freaking awesome if you ask me.
So the teams this year were:
Team A: Trevor Galon (@TRPGalon) / Jeffrey Maystruck
Team B: Jason Galon / Dan Morin
Team C: Andrew Rink (@Andrew_Rink) / Mark Tran
Team D: Jordan Snitzler / Justin Bozak
Team G: Scott Dombowsky / Grant Sellinger
Team H: Robbie Findlay / Matt Solomon
Team I: Mike Distasi (@Di_Stasi) / Ben Matheson
Team J: Curtis Wong / Nick Mazurak (@nmazurak)
Team K: Adam Reiser / Critter Hebert
Team L: E dubb / Trevor Isaac
Team P: Brock Findlay / Robbie McLellan (@panfacerobbie)
