Alexandra from the Syndicate Media Group sent over a press release for Nike's recent release of Casey Neistat's new short movie 'Mind Games'. Written years ago when Casey first started running, this 2.5 minute short explores the mind games runners face and the ideas one focuses on while the body is giving it all it has to keep them running; or while being committed to any other sport. This film was commissioned to be made while he trained in NYC for the New York Marathon this year, to help celebrate the Nike way of showing creativity through sport. Casey carried a small HD video camera with him on runs for 3 weeks to shoot the movie and the music was done by Jordan Galland, a good friend and long time collaborator of Casey's. Syndicate also markets many upscale products, including Ferrari and Land Rover, which I offered to test drive and review. No response yet, but I have my fingers crossed!

- Patrick is still accepting submissions for his Inspiration Page. Apparently if you send him an inspirational tidbit, you get a free shirt. I say apparently because mine must have gotten lost in the mail, along with my arm warmers. I bet I get a t-shirt from Emily or a bumper sticker from Beth before I get anything from Patrick.
- Barbie is doing an Aussie Giveaway, putting us "Americans" and "Canucks" to shame by offering to ship the items anywhere in the world.
