Everyone Is Beautiful

From One Hello World | Part of the One Hello World series | 01:43

I realized the other day that I don’t think there is a single ugly person in this world. I think everyone is so beautiful. Then I realized that if there are no ugly people in this world, that means I must be beautiful. It’s an amazing feeling.

One-hello-world_small I realized the other day that I don’t think there is a single ugly person in this world. I think everyone is so beautiful. Then I realized that if there are no ugly people in this world, that means I must be beautiful.

I Just Am

From Salt Institute for Documentary Studies | 07:07

Musicians often have trademarks. Elvis had a snarl, Michael Jackson had a glove, and Bret Michaels has bandanas. For Dan Knudsen, it’s a fanny pack. The Portland, ME musician is not your typical rock star. He’ll likely never grace the cover of Rolling Stone or be seen on MTV, but locally, Dan’s a bit of a legend.

Mmelvin_f10_pe_001-2_small Dan Knudsen is a Portland, Maine musician who has gained a lot of popularity in the local music scene, but he is far from your typical rock star. Dan is an outsider musican who often sings off-key and about science fiction. His unique sound has resulted in not only a devoted following, but also a tribute album by other local acts. Joanna Zwanger introduces him to us. 

Through a Door

From Sarah Boothroyd | 07:48

A haunted and historical soundscape.

Through_a_door_-_jason_barbieri_-_greyscale_crop_small The Nicholas Street Jail in Ottawa was built in 1862, shut down in the 1970s, and described by a jail inspector in 1946 as "a monstrous relic of an imperfect civilization where cells are medieval, incredibly cramped, with conditions far below the limits of human decency." How could a place like this not have a story to tell?
