The Buried Life: 100 Things To Do Before You Die

Aah the blissful optimism of youth! Way back in 2006, the four buddies that are The Buried Life set off, equipped with little more than a video camera, an R.V, and an insatiable appetite for that crazy game they call “life” to travel across the States, with a mission to knock items off their “100 things to do before I die” list. From the Steve-O inspired (go down a mountain on a longboard), to the socially conscious (help someone build a house), they vowed to help a stranger achieve a life goal for each item they accomplished. Lucky for them, not so long ago, the execs at MTV had been scratching their addled heads in search of new ideas to win back their audiences who, bored of escapist trash, turned off in search of Obama-style civic-minded optimism. They wooed the Buried Life boys with an offer they couldn’t refuse (presumably), and Bingo! The boys will be back this summer with 53 more missions to complete, and lots of strangers to pleasantly surprise.

author: CLARK SATURN – ZIP ZAP ZOP – duration: 02:37

Ok, we’re back and here to stay. And as you can see we are reinforced with fresh troops. Welcome Paul Alexander & Bicyclemark! To celebrate that and more we hereby start our new series: MILESTONES IN VIDEOBLOGGING. From now on, every week, we’ll be posting a video that, as the title suggests, is according to one of you a landmark in videoblogging. The one video that made the difference to you, that inspired the hell out of you or just made you laugh sillily.

You are kindly invited to send us a link, if possible a permalink to the original file, and scribble a few lines why you’ve chosen that particular post. Like the FIRST TEST Jay Dedman did in NYC with Peter van Dijck for instance. Or Michael Verdi NAKED. Or Josh Leo’s FIRST RANT. We would really appreciate if you would send us your loved ones to:
