Do What You Want

Posted by: Myk Likhov

Fascinationg 15 minute documentary about neurologist Dr. John Kitchin, who abandoned the material life of a “typical institutionalized educated Western man” to become Slomo, an old guy skating in “in slow motion” up and down the Pacific Beach promenade in San Diego.

In the video, I love how Slomo discusses ‘the zone,’ a feeling of connectedness that he achieves through his skating. His background as a neurologist gives him both the science and language to explain his theory about the happiness-inducing effects of skating on the brain.  Cool ideas, and fun to watch .
