DFW and YOU is a documentary film series and we’re proud to say that this—is our first installment! For this first round, we talked to a large spectrum of people in Dallas and Denton and focused on one question: Where is your paradise? As a crew we had a blast connecting with the people of the metroplex, an area we love and call home. We had such a great variety of answers, it was really hard to cut it down to five minutes.
Last night around 8pm, my friend Stephen texted me saying the clouds were amazing. I went outside and saw one of the biggest thunderheads I’ve seen since moving to Dallas. I grabbed my camera, tripod, and wife and drove up to the Spring Creek Forest Park Reserve in Garland. There we had a great view of the storm from beside the road.

While neither random nor favorite; and by no means complete, thematic, nor comprehensive; here is my list of 21 songs from 2013 that struck a chord with me in one way or another. Enjoy!
Hal Lasko, better known as Grandpa, worked as a graphic artist back when everything was done by hand. His family introduced him to the computer and Microsoft Paint long after he retired.
Now, Grandpa spends ten hours a day moving pixels around his computer paintings. His work is a blend of pointillism and 8-Bit art.

Experience the beauty of Mt. Everest at night in time-lapse. While most climbers slept, I attempted to capture some of the magic that the Himalayan skies have to offer while climbing to the top of the world.
Here’s a bit of what I endured at the end to make this possible: eliasaikaly.com/2013/05/into-the-death-zone/
One of the most rewarding parts of the journey was being able to share it with thousands of students on epals.com/everest
