Not sure if this has been posted up here yet, but this is a great documentary about perspectives people have on living in their vehicles:

the only part that bothers me about that doc, is whatever bonehead director was making it edited half the film with this really depressing music that doesn't match bob's attitude about the life at all. it really gives the impression that this is a destitute life or something, when in fact it's something bob enjoys and is pretty adamant about getting others to do. this 'downer' music goes on for entirely too long and seems like it was either lazy editing or just a really big editing mistake. the music doesn't make sense for the majority of the time it's on the screen and makes that portion of the documentary very confusing.

I agree. The music choice was terrible, and seems to contradict the intent of the film. I think they may have thought the music was "epic and ominous" but, pretty off with that one.

I would make such a terrible movie critic. This was one of the first videos I watched before I hit the road. I never noticed the music until just now.
But I do remember some of the info and it has proven useful. But of course now I will never be able to watch it again without focusing on such a depressing dirge.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
