What would you do?

I have just stumbled across a website/blog that I absolutely love and I want to share it with you. It's called The Buried Life and you can access it at http://blog.theburiedlife.com/. I will add it to my links list to the left of this page, too.

I'll let their publicist explain them to you... cuz I dont have time:

"What do you want to do before you die? Inspired by a poem they read in English class that talks of achieving the unusual goals that get buried under day-to-day life, four passionate Canadian college students have embarked on a mission dubbed The Buried Life Tour (www.theburiedlife.com). Their mission is to accomplish 100 items on a list of things they want to do before they die, while helping at least 100 strangers they meet along the way also realize their dreams.

"The Buried Life Tour makes its U.S. debut in a retro 1970 purple bio-diesel bus on a two month, 10-city tour to fulfill more items on their list while inspiring others along the way. The group started their movement in an effort to challenge Gen-Y’s collective apathy and lack of passion. Committed to “walking the talk,” they’re leading by example through accomplishing their life dreams.

"So far, the crew has crossed several items off their list, including opening the six o’clock news (#1), leading a parade (#2) and spending the night in a haunted house (#45). Items they’re still attempting to achieve include dancing with Ellen DeGeneres (#79), throwing out the first pitch at a major league baseball game (#36), and competing in a soap-box derby (#70). The complete list of the group’s life goals can be found at www.theburiedlife.com/list.

"The quartet has created a website to chronicle their adventure and chart their progress. The tour has generated a cult following throughout Canada and the U.S., and has inspired hundreds of individuals to go out and live life while reaching out to help others. Their complete adventure is being chronicled in a feature-length documentary anticipated to premiere in film festivals worldwide in fall, 2008. They also have many clips on YouTube.com including the following video link: http://youtube.com/watch?v=oSFZ3heabVc&mode=related&search=

Have fun!
