Adventure Not War

Saturday, November 11th, 2017

Adventure Not War from Nimia on Vimeo.

Adventure Not War is the story of three U.S. veterans traveling back into the mountains of Iraq on a mission to heal wounds and experience the country and its culture without the shadow of war.

This film reveals a seldom seen beautiful underbelly in a place of devastation and creates space for healing wounds deeper than flesh and bones. Adventure Not War follows National Geographic Adventurer of the Year Stacy Bare and two other veterans Robin Brown and Matthew Griffin. The film follows the three US Military Captains on an unexpected journey to revisit Iraq, a country that has threatened their sanity since their time of service. This heartfelt film takes a new approach to war, empowering veterans to reclaim their lives and rewrite their histories in places where they served. We hope this film will help promote peace and a universal understanding that beauty can replace hatred if we strive for adventure, not war.

During their 2 week stay Stacy, Robin and Matthew traveled to Kurdistan to work alongside the non-profit Tent Ed, providing educational resources to children displaced by war and do the first ski ascent and decent of Mount Halgurd, the tallest peak within Iraqi boarders.

FROM STACY BARE:

“I came home from war. War never really left me.

Some of my friends came back in boxes. Others filled those boxes Stateside. Climbing and skiing kept me out of the grave.

In order to come all the way home and to leave war behind, I’m going back to ski and climb with a few friends.

More importantly, I want to show America places and people missed in normal war reporting. My goal is to highlight the shared humanity between those of us who fight wars and the people who live in the places where we’ve been. Responsible, global adventure is a key part of achieving global peace and understanding.

As part of this mission in partnership with friends and fellow veterans Robin Brown and Matthew ‘Griff’ Griffin, I went back to Iraq to visit Zack Bazzi and his work promoting education in refugee camps and to make a first ski ascent and descent of Mt. Halgurd, the highest mountain fully in Iraq.”

MadDuoCo Releases Original Pipehitter Tee

Friday, October 27th, 2017

Chesty Puller, Douglas MacArthur, and George Patton all did it. So did Percy Fawcett and Albert Einstein (and Bill the Butcher and Gandalf).

They all smoked a pipe. They were all original pipehitters.

You should be too. Why? For several reasons, actually. For instance, you’re not just gonna look distinguished and badass (though you will, of course). You’ll live longer than all the girly-men who prefer e-cigs and cigarettes too.

Remember the Surgeon General’s report from 1964, the one that first really got people taking a hard look at cigarettes? Prob’ly not. Anyway. It said cigarettes were bad — but pipes, not so much!

“…cigar smoke has 4 times as much benz(a)pyrene as cigarette smoke, and pipe smoke ten times as much as cigarette smoke (p. 58). Yet, the Committee found pipe and cigar smoke to be pretty much innocent of causing lung cancer, and even concluded that pipe smokers live longer than non-smokers.”

That’s right. Smoke a pipe, you live longer.

That might be bullshit, in fact it probably is, but we don’t particularly care. We like pipesmoking.

And that’s why we released this t-shirt. They’re printed on Next Level tees, with several color options available (and more coming soon).

Get yours right here.
