In this second episode of the Not Dead Yet Show:

Dave piques interest with a herd of silent, invisible longhorns then offers some agreeable words of wisdom. A bullheaded, levitating GoPro captures a Sunglass Case #SaddleHack you’ve never seen, while Sela reminisces on her scooter about past Birthday wishes from Massai warriors in Kenya.

We like telling stories. The “Not Dead Yet Show” will be a series of such stories on how the Munson clan are taking a flying leap from their long-time home in San Antonio suburbia to take up residence in a clump of safari tents out in the sticks.

Make sure to tune in weekly for a peek at new leather designs in Mexico, weekly how-to’s from Dave, and answers from Suzette on all the questions you never knew you had about the nuances of decorating a tent in the wilderness.

 

We’ll be sharing weekly and adding new episodes here. Come follow along:

Episode One

Episode Two

Episode Three

Episode Four

Episode Five (coming soon)

CrossSquirrel-2

 

So I’m sure you’ve heard about all the storms and flooding here in Texas. Well, Suzette and I are fine. But we lost at least one good squirrel. Cross the “squirrel whisperer” found the bloated corpse after one of our recent monsoons and tried to save him, but despite his valiant efforts (and favorite Spiderman PJs) was unsuccessful.

What I didn’t really expect was all the overprotective family members and well-meaning friends who jumped in to trumpet the dangers of picking up a dead animal after I posted this pic on Facebook. Suzette and I aren’t afraid of dirty hands and we love when our kids run around outside exploring stuff. The dangers of letting your kids sit around watching TV all day is way greater than the dangers of picking up a drowned squirrel. What do you think?

card-1-Final

 

The call went out on Instagram and guess what came back? One after another – a flurry of actual, made-of-paper post cards to fill our non-digital mailbox to the brim. After much hand-wringing and sole-searching (that’s where you mindlessly pick at your shoe while mulling over a big decision) @claire_edwards ended up taking the leather cake, and five hundred bones.

There were so many brag-worthy cards that came in, we had to share a few. Where do kids these days come up with this stuff?

Part 12 of 12

From the filmmaker, Joe Callander:

“This is one of my favorite parts of the film. Enric Sifa, a Rwandan now living in the states, recorded the song. In the theatrical version, I had a big-sounding a cappella choral arrangement, but I think Enric’s quiet, solo version works just as well, if not better. There are only 3 shots in the whole film that directly reference the genocide, and they’re in this sequence. After not directly addressing it visually for the whole film, my intention with these three shots in the final moment of the film was to show that the demons Kwasa battles are very real and will always haunt him, to one degree or another. ”

Part 11 of 12

From the filmmaker, Joe Callander:

“Suzette and Kwasa head back to his old hovel for a look around. Suzette has shouldered quite the task in helping these boys in their early-20s. Some of them she may be able to help in real ways, and some of them are lost forever. But the love in her for these young men is real and unconditional, and it was important to me to show that in the film. ”

Part 10 of 12

From the filmmaker, Joe Callander:

“After Dave brings some tools to set up a leather shop, we really see the differences between Kwasa and Fils emerge as they look over the tools. After coming from such extreme horror and instability, the idea of working a 9-to-5 is utterly alien to Kwasa. Fils, having somewhat more of a stable background, sees the woodshop as an opportunity.”
