Nomadland Reaction and Review

Above all I am not a movie critic but I am a nomad and I did see the movie Nomadland, so here’s my reaction and review. Learn more by listening to Nomadland-Reaction-Review-Bob Davis Podcast 992.

Have You Seen It?

In addition my listeners want to know if I’ve seen Nomadland.

Not An Action Movie

First of all we’re drowning in an ocean of super action hero movies.

It’s Real And That’s Why It’s Great

Therefore it’s easy to see why Nomadland is winning so many awards.

Did I Say Real?

Firstly this is a movie about a very real topic.

American Workers Crisis

Companies that disappear. Workers who are thrown away and forgotten.

Struggles

Secondly some people struggle with grief, loss and other issues.

Forced Into Nomad Life or Freedom?

Consequently I can be forgiven for thinking the main character in Nomadland is ‘forced’ into life as a nomad.

However not everyone agrees with my assessment.

How Do You Do it?

In addition I often get questions from people about “how I do it”.

Cue The Raised Eyebrows from Dad

Furthermore Nomadland will only intensify raised eyebrows and questions of concern.

Certainly the movie got that right.

Life With No Tether

I’ve already discussed life with no tether.

Not Instagram

In short let’s just say Nomadland isn’t the movie version of the Instagram Van Life feed.

To sum up that is why it’s a great movie.

Real Nomads

Most of the people in Nomadland are real nomads.

Life Doesn’t Pack Neatly Into A Box

And there are elements about their lives and experiences that aren’t neatly wrapped up in a box

We Don’t All Have Brand New Sprinter Vans

Or summed up in that Instagram pic of that young sun kissed blonde woman and her boyfriend taking a shower on the back of their one hundred thousand dollar Sprinter Van.

Bureau Of Land Management Camping Isn’t Yellowstone

Even more let’s not forget the golden sunset on gorgeous beaches and fantastic vegan meal spreads.

Sense Of Freedom

But the movie gets the sense of freedom right.

Your Experience May Vary

In conclusion Nomadland is not every nomad’s experience.

My truck is heated.

Pan frying steaks is my specialty. Obviously I eat meat. Not soup out of a can.

I don’t use a bucket.

This nomad gets along just fine in truck stops.

Diesel #2 is pretty awesome fuel.

A New Trend

Finally mobile workers and a nomad lifestyle may be the coming thing for many reasons.

If you’re considering it don’t let the movie scare you away.

Springbreak-Part2-The-Interviews-Bob Davis Podcast 986

Springbreak Part2 The Interviews

Firstly it’s Springbreak and time for some interviews in Part2 of my travels to Florida this spring. Learn more in Springbreak-Part2-The-Interviews-Bob Davis Podcast 986.

Interesting People?

Secondly as a nomad Podcaster people I meet always say, “Boy you must interview some really interesting people”.

Certainly there are interesting people out here.

Until…

But generally speaking I find most people don’t have much to say when you stick a microphone in their face.

Interviews…Meh

Even more I am not big on interviews.

The Thing In Podcasting

Yes, interviews seems to be ‘the thing’ in Podcasting.

However I don’t do what everyone else does.

I Do Find People To Interview

Every now and then I run across people to interview, though.

For example two young spring breakers in Panama City Beach, Florida.

And a truly engaging woman who owns a coffee shop in Madison, Florida.

As a result Springbreak-Part2-The-Interviews-Bob Davis Podcast 986 is a unique podcast for me.

Different Approaches To Life

Most importantly these interviews illustrate different approaches to life at different times in life.

Something Real

In short I’m looking for something real out here.

No Small Talk

I don’t want to engage in small talk, especially when it comes to interviews.

Long Term Effects Of The Pandemic

In the same vein I ask how today’s younger people feel the Pandemic might effect their lives in the future.

Coffee House

And I wonder how an internationally traveled and accomplished woman decides to run a great coffee house in a small town in the Florida Panhandle in addition to other demanding interests.

I think the answer is truly enlightening.

Unique Times

Finally we are living in unique times.

Huge Opportunities

While there are challenges there are also huge opportunities if we have the right mindset.

Florida!

In conclusion I’ve always thought Florida is one of the best examples of this reality.

The Sunshine State

To sum up I’ve been coming down to the Sunshine State since I was a kid.

Never Ceases To Surprise

The People of Florida and those who come here here to change their lives, never cease to surprise me.

Reclaiming-Our-Lives-Bob Davis Podcast 960

Most Important Thing

The most important thing to remember is we can reclaim our lives whenever we want. Learn more in Reclaiming-Our-Lives-Bob Davis Podcast 960.

Take It Back

Second of all why don’t we take our lives back?

Certainly it’s complicated. Jobs. Kids. Goals. Stuff. Plans.

Complicated Methods For Simplifying Your Life

And I know there’s all kinds of help and methods for simplifying your life.

Moreover there are so many ‘simplify your life’ plans and suggestions, there are even whole books available on the subject.

I Have A Simple Plan

Burn it.

Throw it away.

Give it away.

All of it.

Now.

I Did It!

In the same vein that is exactly what I have done.

In addition it feels great.

Method To The Madness

To clarify I’ve done all this for a reason. The next chapter of my life and these podcasts is about to begin.

Extreme Steps

During the whole clean up effort before a move on my end, I planned the next step.

In addition it’s an extreme step.

And it will rock.

Bored With Everything?

Above all much of my boredom and restlessness recently has to do with the present media situation and how it covers the so called news. Even more, how it covers and talks about everything.

America Is In High Anxiety About The Future

Likewise many of my friends have indicated a high level of anxiety about the future.

Likewise and especially how our media talks about the cartoon show we call politics and news.

Time To Change Focus

To sum up this podcast, I’m not going to say what I am going to do just yet, but it will change the focus of the podcasts slightly.

Taking Action

I can say that I am not going to sit here and do nothing.

I’m taking action.

I’m reclaiming my life

Dynamic Content

Finally I look forward to more dynamic content in these podcasts after what we laughingly refer to as an election.

In conclusion I’ve talked about reclaiming the spirit and passion of my life for along time.

Starting Over

After getting rid of everything I can barely wait to start all over again.
