Keeping Busy

Life Thought:

I have figured out some secrets to life.  But it all boils down to this one word.  It is not a selfish word. Nor is it a word that you have to think about a lot.


You might have a lot to think about once you figure out this word.  But then again, life is a process of trial and error.  


This word...It makes you feel empowered to do anything and achieve any goals.  


The mantra of this word is also attached to this phrase that is burned in to my brain "Do it NOW!" ( I can still see the B&W square not in BOLD that was taped to the computer my mother gave me).


Can you figure out the word?  Let me know if you can.

Its Just a Cover letter, Sam.

So I decided to take a different approach to applying to jobs.  I found this on Craigslist and it inspired me to see if  I get a response to something as silly as what I said below (  Ahh, my Quesedillas are burning!).


Do you think I got the job? 




"Hello,

My name is Sam Potts.  I do all sorts of cool stuff.  Imaging a gorilla in a tree pearing down on the city skyline.  Thats me!  But with a video camera, Sunglasses and a six pack of cola to sip on.  Scooters don't scare me.  Neither do hawks.  But If  I wasn't so friggin heavy, i'd try to ride one.   Hmmm...Maybe someday.. I'll let you know when I attempt it.  Should be interesting.

Anyhoo, feel free to look at my portfolio of videos at vimeo.com/sampotts  and sampotts.com where I have tons of videos and photos!

I have tons of experience and would love to work with some fun and crative people.

Ciao! "
Oh yeah, I went to monster trucks this last friday! They also threw in a demolition derby
