WHO WANTS A TREEHOUSE?

If you missed Animal Planet's latest show, Treehouse Masters with Pete Nelson (probably the biggest tree-lover of all time), well get ready. They are on the lookout for epic trees to build dream treehouses. If you think your ol' oak tree has what it takes, visit the casting site here. Note: Only trees in America are being considered, but  this man Nelson will travel far for the perfect one. 

If only we all lived in Treehouses, the world would be such a better, funner place…

MEET MR HAPPY MAN

Meet Johnny Barnes, one of the happiest people in the world, and his main goal in life is to share that happiness. Film-maker Matt Morris captures this humble and lovable Bermudan as he wakes up at 3 a.m. every morning and heads to one particularly busy intersection to stand, wave, blow kisses and shout, “I love you!” to passers-by. 

Imagine if every morning greeted you like this…we are forever grateful Mr Happy Man.

Prior to meeting Jason Baffa we were already massive fans of his work. Over the years he's produced nothing but quality and his latest film Bella Vita looks nothing short of amazing. The best part about meeting someone you look up to is when they are completely down to earth and just as stoked on wave riding as you are. Keep inspiring us Jason.
