the path of the sage must become the path of the hero

If you are in a shell…


Zefrank has got what I think are some of the funniest videos on YouTube.

But this one is really profound.

Watch. I think you’ll see what I mean.

Wherever you see "jaklumen", that's me. The username is still unique as of 2016, so it's just me, and only me. It's the real me, because I'm bad at faking otherwise.

  1. I’m glad I don’t have to clean all that paint up……. 😉


  2. I watched this all the way through, like you wanted, dearheart. I can see, now, why you like it. One day, you, too, will feel safe enough to break free of your shell. I hope I haven’t been making you feel unsafe. If I have, I’m deeply sorry.


  3. Remind me to always trust your judgement, buddy…


    • Some of Zefrank’s videos– I have laughed so hard I could barely breathe– but this one, this one I watched just after letting a little more of the inner bitter hurt out to the blogosphere, in a safe place.


  4. great video – but from the description I was expecting a “funny” or comical video – however, it did not disappoint – this was AWESOME! what a great analogy to show the way life exposure and experience clings and sticks to us – also, well done with the precise body movements, pacing, color mixing, and the constant, balanced voice of the narrator – great post!


    • Yep, Zefrank usually does comedy videos, but this one is more serious. He does have a very steady announcer voice, too, which has led some fans to suggest he needs to do a video with Morgan Freeman.


  5. Thanks for taking the time to reply – and later I noticed that you even mentioned in your post that this video was “profound” – I just missed it! lol

    Oh no!!! please – no MORE Morgan Freeman! With all due respect – and I like his voice – especially in Through the Wormhole episodes – but enough is enough. And sometimes a steady voice (like the one in this video) is just what is needed – and so I liked it as-is. 🙂


    • Fair enough. There are other notable individuals with smooth announcer voices.

      Incidentally, I practiced speaking like that to overcome telephone phobia, e.g., so that the person on the other end couldn’t tell how nervous I was. Recently, I’ve answered the phone and people (that know me, even) asked if they were talking to a recording.
