Life Is Full of Possibilities is the third studio album by electronic producer Dntel, released October 30, 2001 on the Plug Research record label. The album is notable for leading to the creation of The Postal Service, a result of the collaboration with Ben Gibbard on "(This Is) The Dream of Evan and Chan". A two disc "Deluxe Edition" of the album was released in 2011, which featured four additional songs not included on the initial release along with remixed versions of other songs from the album.


A track on the album, "(This Is) The Dream of Evan and Chan", was so well-received[citation needed] (even being released as a single in August 2002) that Dntel would later collaborate with Ben Gibbard again for an entire album, Give Up, released under the name The Postal Service.
