Today marks the launch of Do Your Thing, a blog created to share fans’ stories and foster the follow-your-heart ethos that inspired the documentary 10 MPH, which chronicles a cross-country trip via Segway scooter, (“Slow Ride,” August 5, 2004, "Storme of the Day,” May 24) also releasing today on DVD.
There isn’t a whole lot to see there at the moment, apart from a few anonymous posts praising the film and a post from one of the filmmakers anticipating its imminent release. Apart from that, you can watch the trailer (funny), add the film to your Netflix or Blockbuster queues (handy!), check out some slide shows, buy a download for your iPod or set-top box, or even sign up to be a distributor for the film. There’s also info on when the film is screening at theaters nearby (August 8 in Boulder, August 9 here in Denver). -- Cory Casciato
