This is the awesomely humorous, poignant, and heartwarming story of a skateboarding vacuum cleaner named TIBBS (Together Interconnected Between Beautiful Stars) and his sidekick Willow Jon adventuring around the world together talking to people about making a cleaner better world.
Willow Jon. World Traveler. Dancer. Gonzo Journalist. Spiritual Explorer.
My name is Willow Jon Collamer and I'm on a journey of fearless self discovery. I play music, travel the world, make films, and have bad ass adventures. It is my desire to challenge the Status Quo and inspire courage in the hearts and minds of the people. Courage to discover our true self. A self that grows and evolves with each new experience.
I challenge you all to get up, reach inside yourself, dig around and find that spark of love, that part of yourself that yearns to be free, that begs to be noticed, that screams to feel something, anything.... and begin to be silent and listen.
I am Willow Jon Collamer and this is Willow Jon Slept Here
Willow Jon loves a challenge and an adventure so when Discovery channel offered him a role on a new survival show called, “Tethered” let’s just say he jumped at the opportunity. This time Willow Jon finds himself pushed beyond his breaking point as he is physically tethered to hard headed Navy vet Keith Barton with a six foot chain to see if they can survive a 10 day 50 mile trek through Panama’s deadly jungles, shark infested waters, and relentless heat, with only a machete, a flint, and a pot. In this survival show splitting up is not an option.
In the fall of 2009 I took a trip to Thailand, Cambodia, and Loas. I spent three months with my video camera and my guitar filming and playing music. I visited the spiritual temples of Anchor Watt in Cambodia, chartered a slow boat down the Mekong river for seven days, and did some adrenalin pumping deep water solo rock climbing in Ton Sai. Everyday I was singing songs, dancing, and making friends with people of different cultures from all over the world. Spontaneous adventure at it’s best. As my English mate Simon would say. “It was pure Genius!”
On this southern Caribbean adventure I find myself in Guadeloupe, France camping on the beaches with the local Rastafarian’s, sailors, ex patriots, and thugs, exploring active sulfuric volcanoes, cliff jumping, fishing, swimming in the turquoise waters and hitching around talking with people about living life to the fullest with grace, love, and compassion.

Clare and I met in Twisp, Washington in 2012 where I was attending The Wild Mind Film Camp. Clare was giving a public workshop on horse training with a beautiful black horse named Pecos. I was blown away by her courage, spirit, and experience so I asked if I could come shoot some video of her and her horses after I was finished with my documentary film camp. She said yes and so I jumped in her pickup and drove down to Omak with her and the rest is history.
Wes Whittaker and I met as children exploring the winding creeks, ancient caverns, and mystic red rocks of Sedona, Arizona and now years later, through much studying, contemplation, and experience, Wes is now exploring the inner landscape of the mind, body, and spirit. In this video he discusses the benefits of integrating some of the eastern Buddhism philosophy with western modes of contemplative psychotherapy and how this can lead to a more peaceful and meaningful life.
I had the pleasure of visiting the holy Buddhist relics where I received a blessing of overwhelming love and peace, viewed the spectacular gems, pearls, stones, and other relics of individuals who lived a life of universal values, and spoke with Norbu about how we can live with more love in our lives.
