Friday Inspiration 326

screen capture from GoPro Inside a Dishwasher

I don’t know how I feel about being a person whose friends think, “You know who would love this video in which a guy puts a GoPro inside a dishwasher to see how it works? Brendan would.” Alas, I did love it, and I watched all 15 minutes of it, and you might too, but if you don’t, I respect that. Anyway, thanks, Bodie. (video)

There are many good lines in this profile of Nicolas Cage, but this is my favorite: “His voice is a low, contemplative drawl that imbues every word with a sense of philosophical magnitude.

I HAVE A NEW BOOK! 

Have Fun Out There Or Not book by Brendan Leonard front cover

After my book I Hate Running and You Can Too came out last year, I decided to compile all of the pieces I’ve written about running since 2014, and put them into a book, with newly written intros to each piece. The book is now out in paperback and ebook editions, and it’s called Have Fun Out There Or Not: The Semi-Rad Running Essays. Signed paperback copies are available in the Semi-Rad Shop, and unsigned copies are available through the following retailers:

Some photos of the paperback, taken yesterday on my kitchen table:
