I had the great fortune of being able to listen to a lecture by professional caveman John Durant at Hillsdale College last night. I also got to hang out and chat with him for the evening and he graciously agreed to do an interview for The Primal Challenge! Click on the link below to listen to the interview.
Topics: The gourmet hot dog party that started it all, the role of community in keeping you with your new identity, advice for people who want to start blogging or doing something in health, why so many libertarians are attracted to paleo, and advice for people just starting out with paleo.
For those of you who don’t know him, John is a barefoot runner who started the NYC Barefoot Run, a health entrepreneur, and a libertarian who runs a popular blog on the paleo lifestyle, Hunter-Gatherer.com.
I had a great time chatting with him and learning from him. Thanks, John!
The photo was of the recently dedicated statue of Former President Reagan that was dedicated here at Hillsdale College last week. The Reagan statue is Hillsdale’s most recent addition to the Liberty Walk.
Above: Freshman Samantha Gilman volunteers for “Arts for Creative Minds, a volunteer program where college students work with area youth in arts-related activities.” Read the article. (From the February 11 edition of the Collegian.)
Professor Matt Fuerst, part of Hillsdale’s excellent music faculty, is a composer who has had his compositions performed on three continents. In the picture above, he explains his composition method to the Hillsdale Collegian. Read the full story.
I took this photo for today’s Collegian. This is one of Hillsdale’s art professors, Sam Knecht, “painting a large-scale scene of the Founding Fathers signing the American Constitution. The painting is part of the September opening of the Allan P. Kirby, Jr. Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship.” Read the article.
“Senior Kevin Hershock keeps careful count of his T-shirts. As the president of Be A Number, every $20 shirt he sells has a twin that will become the property of an underprivileged child in America or a third world country.” Read the rest of the article.
While on my way to take a photo for The Collegian Tuesday night, I ran into the men of Mu Alpha serenading various women’s dorms. I decided to snap a few shots, as I am friends with and respect many of the Mu Alphans. (For those of you who do not know, Mu Alpha is a men’s music honorary fraternity at Hillsdale.)
Today was a big day for Hillsdale sports!
The football team won 27-24 against Minnesota State in OT at their first ever D2 playoff appearance.
Then, the volleyball team won their GLIAC playoff match against Ashland! They go to the championship tomorrow!
Here are a few shots from the volleyball game. (I was not at the football game, as it was in Minnesota.) Click on the photos to enlarge them.
I am on my way to Chicago on Thursday. I am excited!
Besides lots of sight-seeing, photographing, and eating, I plan to update my photography portfolio here on my site while I am there. I have not updated it in a year, and my skills have improved in that time. I have a lot of photos to take out, and a lot of photos to add. I will post it when I get it finished.
Here are some photos from the alumni football game last weekend. All previous Hillsdale football players were allowed to participate in the event. Guys ranging from their mid-20s to mid-50s showed up to play.
All three pre-fall break exams are finished! Now I have to put the finishing touches on my Austrian Economics paper on the notion of cost and its use in economic regulation, and I will be on my way to visit Ryan in Chicago!
Now, for the regularly scheduled program:
