Lyrics of the Week – Every Breath You Take

AAEAAQAAAAAAAAg5AAAAJGVkNDNhNzEwLTliOWQtNDYyYi1iYzZjLWY5Njk2OWUxNTI3NA

Every Breath You Take

Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take

I’ll be watching you

Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay

I’ll be watching you

[Chorus:]
Oh can’t you see
You belong to me
How my poor heart aches
With every step you take
Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake

I’ll be watching you

Since you’ve gone I been lost without a trace
I dream at night I can only see your face
I look around but it’s you I can’t replace
I feel so cold and I long for your embrace
I keep crying baby, baby, please

[Chorus]

Every move you make
Every step you take
I’ll be watching you

Family adventures throw back to 2014 – Wonders of GoPro

We have an adventures family. Here is a video from the archives. It’s a short my boys did in 2014. Pretty much captures the previous years adventures. Covers the gamut from Snowboarding at Stevens Pass, bike ridding in Sun River Oregon, Jeep 4×4 rides, Gold Bar Nature trails, Bryce hitting the skate parks around Seattle and even some Venice Beach in Southern California.

We still do a lot of these type of activities and even capture many of them on film. I’ve heard whisperings of a Wonders of GoPro II in the works. I hope so Evan and Alec.

 

 

Peace out!

Burning Man signifies society’s shift away from traditional capitalism — Quartz

How much does it cost to escape capitalism? Much ink has been spilled and server space spent on the increasingly commercial influence of Burning Man. From the tech glitterati who shell out tens of thousands of dollars for turn-key luxury camps with air conditioning to celebrities like P Diddy and Katy Perry who get flown…

Lyrics of the week – Paradise

John_Denver_-_RockyMountainHigh

“Paradise”
Written by John Prine 
When I was a child, my family would travel
down to western Kentucky where my parents were born.
There’s a backwards old town that’s often remembered, so my times that my memories are worn.
And daddy, won’t you take me back to Muhlenberg County,
down by the Green River where paradise lay?
Well, I’m sorry, my son, but you’re too late in asking.
Mister Peabody’s coal train just hauled it away.Well sometimes we’d travel right down the Green River
to the abandoned old prison down by Adrie Hill,
where the air smelled like snakes and we’d shoot with our pistols,
but empty pop bottles was all we would kill.
And daddy, won’t you take me back to Muhlenberg County,
down by the Green River where paradise lay?
Well, I’m sorry, my son, but you’re too late in asking.
Mister Peabody’s coal train just hauled it away.Well, the coal company came with the world’s largest shovel,
and they tortured the timber and stripped all the land.
And they dug for their coal till the land was forsaken, wrote it all down as the progress of man.
And daddy, won’t you take me back to Muhlenberg County,
down by the Green River where paradise lay?
Well, I’m sorry, my son, but you’re too late in asking.
Mister Peabody’s coal train just hauled it away.
And daddy, won’t you take me back to Muhlenberg County,
down by the Green River where paradise lay?
Well, I’m sorry, my son, but you’re too late in asking.
Mister Peabody’s coal train just hauled it away.

Lyrics of the Week – True Colors

true-colors-680x452Cyndi Lauper

“True Colors”

You with the sad eyes
Don’t be discouraged
Oh I realize
It’s hard to take courage
In a world full of people
You can lose sight of it all
And the darkness inside you
Can make you feel so small

But I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow

Show me a smile then,
Don’t be unhappy, can’t remember
When I last saw you laughing

If this world makes you crazy
And you’ve taken all you can bear
You call me up
Because you know I’ll be there

And I’ll see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow

[Whisper:] Can’t remember, when I last saw you laugh.

If this world makes you crazy
And you’ve taken all you can bear
You call me up
Because you know I’ll be there

And I’ll see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors
True colors are shining through

I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you
So don’t be afraid to let them show
Your true colors
True colors are beautiful,
Like a rainbow.

Mojocat.com site update

Mojocat_logo_2017I am excited to announce that I am relaunching www.mojocat.com with the refocus on video production, motion graphics and interactive media. The difference is I’m splitting my branding up.

I will point my domain  www.jefftillett.com to my old digital resume

Screen Shot 2017-08-23 at 4.55.10 PMfocusing on my instructional design career. The domain www.mojocat.com will be focused on my business Mojocat Creative Services. The new Mojocat site is draft one of a site build on WordPress. I have plans on taking this site to the next level but for now I am hoping this simple site will do. I think it does a pretty good job of explaining who Mojocat is and what we do. As acompanion to the domain Mojocat I will leverage the Facebook page www.facebook.com/mojocatcs/

Have I confused anyone yet? I hope not.

Series: Declaration of Modern Learner Rights blog posts VIA – Intrepid Learning

I just ran across this great series of blog entries from my friends at Intrepid Learning by Sam Herring on LinkedIn. Besides being a local company here in Seattle I’ve always respected the great work they do. I was first introduced to their work while I was at T-Mobile. I also respect their accessibility locally and involvement in ATD. Sam Herring who is CEO at Intrepid served on the ATD board of directors for 4 years and made big contributions to the learning community. Here is an interview I did with Sam for the ATD Puget Sound 2012 Workplace Learning Conference.

Videos for Real Estate

20121317_1259952540797882_7557224238060855584_oThings have been pretty busy over at Mojocat Creative Services. As a strategy I have been trying to focus where my passion is. I have always enjoyed the video work I have done in my corporate career. I believe my experience as an Instructional Designer gives me a big advantage in creating interesting, engaging and successful videos. My ID career has given me some great experience working with video. Working in the studio at Apple and editing video was a privilege and a real learning experience. I also enjoyed when I was at T-Mobile helping them create a rapid video program. I learned a lot and we had a blast.Tom as Android Like that time I created the Android custom and had a co-worker go around the office while my friend John and I filmed it.

One important thing I have learned about video is that if you have fun so will your audience.

A few years back I had the privilege of doing a series of safety videos for Washington Wineries and the Department of Labor and Industries. This was a very fun project as well as a great learning experience. I was able to film all over the state of Washington in some of the most amazing wineries. I shot the grape crush as well as the entire process of winemaking.  Here is the test video I did. It’s music video so its a bit more fun than the safety videos to watch.

Winery Safety Project Sample

Most recently We’ve have teamed up with our friends at Rain City NW and Keller Williams to help them create videos to not only promote their listings but to help them build there brand so they stand out from their competition. We have three videos in the can as they say.  Our first two listing video where just launched and are creating quite a buzz. We are just starting and I am looking forward to all the great things we will do together. Here is one of our first listing videos. Stay tuned for much more from them.

We would be happy to assist your business with video, motion or interactive content. Feel free to reach out to share ideas on how we can help. Jeff@mojocat.com
