We will spend the bulk of our lives at work. We spend more time with our co-workers than with our family. If we are not careful, we will eventually become our job. But wouldn’t it be nice if we could just get paid for living. No spreadsheets, no expense reports, no more eating at our desks, no more working so late at the office that daylight becomes a distant memory. If living life was a job, we would welcome suggestions on how to do it better with open arms. Meetings would be something to look forward to and working for 24 hours straight would leave you feeling exhilarated, not exhausted.
Such a job exists. 55DSL is now searching for bright, young and gifted individuals to work in their Kick Ass Department. This is not a joke, it’s not a competition and it’s certainly not a gimmick. 55DSL needs people to roam the earth and find all that is good and pure and kick ass. Their job will be to film, photograph and blog everything they find so the whole world can see just how amazing it all is. The reportage of this amazing adventure will be done mainly through videos, and they will have images from all visited places for a “55 films around the world" final show.
Everyone can apply through www.55dsl.com starting from February 2007, sending texts, videos, images and audio, but not a flat CV. They are looking for all kinds of creative executions that show the applicants’ creative ability to deal with everyday life, therefore a text can be a poem or a short tale, images can be pictures or drawings or artworks and audios can be songs, or music saved on a MP3.
But the best news is that with the new edition of “Junior Lucky Bastard" there is the opportunity for everybody to win the best 55 seconds of one’s life. People can suggest ideas for a cool way to live 55 seconds just writing them on cards available in selected stores around the world. When one idea is selected, the person who suggested it will meet the JLB and “live the idea" with them, in any part of the world. An opportunity not to miss, if you have a great, original idea!
The list of stores will be available on 55DSL website, together with the detailed info on how to apply and when.
The deadline for submissions is May 1st 2007; applicants will be selected after that date. A short period of training to prepare the selected candidate will precede two months of travel around the world, from September till November 2007.
What are you waiting for...?!
