Since 2008 – Progress Through Politics

Where the Hell is Matt? Nah, seriously, where is he?

In 2006 Matt traveled to 39 countries in 6 months. Later he traveled to 42 countries in 14 months and used a cast of thousands to make this video. So who is Matt? From his website

Matt is a 32-year-old deadbeat from Connecticut who used to think that all he ever wanted to do in life was make and play videogames. Matt achieved this goal pretty early and enjoyed it for a while, but eventually realized there might be other stuff he was missing out on. In February of 2003, he quit his job in Brisbane, Australia and used the money he'd saved to wander around Asia until it ran out…

Matt lives in Seattle, Washington with his girlfriend, Melissa, and dog, Sydney. He hasn't had a real job since Stride called him up. Matt doesn't mind working, but he doesn't much care for having to show up at the same place every day.

So can you dance like Matt? Supposedly Matt's dancing has evolved from 2006 to 2008 trip. Do you like to visit foreign lands like Matt?…

Did you enjoy the background music in the video. Do you know where is it from?

    I love that tube. I used to be able to dance (better than Matt IMHO) and I like visiting foreign lands.

    And I can relate to this,

    Matt doesn’t mind working, but he doesn’t much care for having to show up at the same place every day.

    Surfing, keeping the house warm and catching up on the DVR. It only got down to minus 10 and has warmed up to 2 below! By Saturday it might get to 32 above. Looking for my shorts…

    I cheated and looked at the credits, but the song is called “Praan” and the lyrics are adapted from the poem “Stream of Life”

    I add my voice to the chorus of those who love these vids…makes me feel good on the inside.

    Thanks for postin’ this Louis…had been a while since I’d watched ’em. 😉

    …if for no other reason than he provides concrete evidence that I’m a better dancer than at least one other human being on earth.
