Where the Hell is Matt?

tags: , ,

Here's a wonderful streaming video that celebrates this beautiful world and the people in it! It celebrates our common humanity, regardless of where we live, or what we look like. My favorite parts were when Matt was dancing among the red crabs on the beach of Christmas Island, I laughed to see him dance in the demilitarized zone in Korea and to see him and a crowd dancing in a downpour in Quebec, I caught my breath .. for just a moment .. when I watched him dance among the sons of headhunters of Poria, Papua New Guinea (where some of my research birds live, *cry*) and was thrilled by his dancing on the beach of Tongatapu Tonga .. oh, and the group of women who danced with him in Gurgaon, India were beautiful, their clothing was so colorful! And of course, I felt a pang of intense homesickness to see Matt dancing in Gasworks Park in my other home, Seattle, and to see him dancing in Tokyo where I lived for several months as a grad student .. and the music that accompanies this video is wonderful, too. Well, you just have to watch it for yourselves. [4:29]

From his FAQ

There is a place in Palau called Jellyfish Lake. Long ago, the lake connected with the surrounding ocean, but at some point it got closed off. Without any predators to worry about, the lake's jellyfish population evolved -- oh, I'm sorry, "intelligently designiated" -- to lose their stingers.

Give that man a ScienceBlog!

If you look at the Montréal scene at 3:51 you'll see me in the yellow jacket ;) (I'm Irish though). Matt is really cool in person. There were so many of us there, but an hour after introductions he still remembered my name! He responded to my emails afterwards too and is a real down-to-earth guy. He's quite famous from his previous video and yet he never let it go to his head; something a lot of travellers (myself included) can learn something from.
