Dallas Clayton Interview / Book Giveaway

Dallas Clayton Interview / Book Giveaway

A few years ago Dallas Clayton wrote “An Awesome Book” to teach his son the importance of dreams and dreaming big! After several publishers passed on the book, he published it himself and put it online for free. The Internet went crazy, orders came pouring in, and Dallas set out on an epic book tour. He travelled all over the world, donating copies for every copy that was sold. You may have seen the Google commercial about him! (See here.)

He wanted to change kids’ lives and ended up completely changing his own. The book became so popular Harper Collins asked to re-release it. His second book “An Awesome Book of Thanks” was the first kid’s picture book to be published by Amazon. He wrote a third book “An Awesome Book of Love”, and has just released his fourth, a collection of poetry called “Make Magic! Do Good!”.

Dallas’ energy is infectious, and his emails always get me pumped. It’s downright impossible not to be excited if you talk to him on the phone. Hopefully some of that comes through in this little interview with the man I consider to be this generation’s Shel Silverstein.

Homemade Instrument / Winners

Booooooom & MTV / made of imagination

As our “Made of Imagination” project with MTV and Sony Xperia comes to a close I just want to make sure I say thank you to every single one of you for getting involved!

It’s kinda silly to only pick two winners but that’s how many prize packs I get to give away. I wanted to reward entrants who created something specifically for this project instead of submitting something they’d previously made, and both of these submissions went above and beyond with wonderful performance videos.

Congratulations to Joel Zuercher (Los Angeles, California) and Cristian Martínez (Buenos Aires, Argentina), you have both won Sony Xperia phones as well as some Booooooom goodies!

See both submissions below:

 

Joel Zuercher’s submission is a box with spindles and a hand crank and two guitar wires strung across the front.

 

Cristian Martínez’s submission is a modified toy affixed with metal sponges, car antennas, and crocodiles clips. He is accompanied by his friend Isis Abigail on an oscillator, using herself and a plant as variable resistor. I love how Isis really goes off near the end.

 

I gotta acknowledge Simone Shin’s sewn turntables, Cara Stewart’s broom phonograph, and of course the fast food performance by Jessica and Aurélien! These were also standouts! If you haven’t done so already, take a look at all the instruments:

Submissions PART I + Submissions PART II

Thanks for making this such a fun project you guys! Any Booooooom goodies I promised people will be sent next week!
