High FashionPosted 02/25/14
Roberta Mancino expresses her passion for fashion and her love of base jumping in this truly extraordinary "High Fashion" GoPro video starring Giovanni Silvestri, Andrey Karr, Luca Tondelli, and Maurizio Di Palma. Watch them jump from Italy's Monte Brento looking fresh and stylish in Roberto Cavalli high end clothing. If you're going to base-jump off a perfectly good cliff, you might as well look spectacular doing it.

This makes me laugh WAY too hard.
Stalingrad - VFXPosted 12/19/13
Wow, visual effects have come a long way. This makes me wish I had spent a bit more time in the 3D labs at UCLA … for a second before trying to digest how many man-hours it must take to do this at this level. Pass!

Skateboarding Summit - Laguna BeachPosted 11/08/13
This hill I grew up on and rode down a million times. So what if the craziest I got was to go down on a bike. SO! Summit is gnarly, dude! I can still remember seeing Peter O'Keefe and Paul Wade going down on skateboards though. Nuttier than me.
SOLOSHOT automatically keeps your camera pointed at you. That is pretty neat. If only I did a sport that was interesting. I doubt covering one of my tennis matches would be film-worthy.
NOTE: Apologies for the music during the movie. Something about it drives me nuts. Mute! There's your answer.

For the Players Since 1995Posted 10/22/13
While I wasn't able to have a PS1, I did love my PS2 and on. Can't wait for the PS4 and all it has to offer. I'm a total fanboy, it's true.
This is a pretty cool ad. I especially like how they change the vid aspect ratio as history unfolds from standard resolutions to today's widescreen format. Nice touch Sony.
Dear Mr. WattersonPosted 10/14/13
Can't wait to see this. I truly, truly can't explain how influential Calvin & Hobbes was to me as a kid. To this day I still pull out my books from time to time and get lost in Calvin's brain. Thank you Bill Watterson for giving me something so special to love for decades and more.

I'm proud to admit that I've been to one of the Lebowski-Fests that took place in LA. It was an awesome (yet weird) time for me and Kenny. Would LOVE to do another one soon.
Catalina 2013Posted 10/02/13
Kathy and I were lucky enough to head out to Catalina in August to spend a nice weekend on the good old Rusty G. As always, it was extremely relaxing and pretty much the highlight of the year. Here you can see us out at Indian Rock snorkeling around like fish. Good times!

Lastly, believe it or not, I did NOT put any filters/effects on myself when I am in the camera's view ... I am sadly that white (fluorescent).

From the upcoming Special Edition Ascent: Commemorating Space Shuttle DVD/BluRay by NASA/Glenn a movie from the point of view of the Solid Rocket Booster with sound mixing and enhancement done by the folks at Skywalker Sound.

We went out for a night of fun in the 'kiddie zone' of Lakeside Amusement Park last night and it was awesome. That place is a big old slice of Americana. Julia loved all the rides (all that pretty much just spun her around in a circle). The ferris wheel was awesome as were so many other rides. Before leaving, we decided to come back at least once a summer to partake in the Lakeside fun. Good times!

I especially LOVE the last from of the video. What a face!
Google GlassPosted 02/28/13
There has been A LOT of press about Google Glass lately. I've been somewhat lukewarm on the whole project until recently. Although I still think they look pretty silly on your face, the experience and possibilities of what it can offer bewilder me. I'm sure it won't be long until this and similar products are the norm.
Although I'm not too excited about getting deeper in tech dependance (and in general I think we've already gone too far), I'm still a techgeek and therefore will continue to salivate until I can take them for my own test drive.
Mr. RogersPosted 02/27/13
What a truly amazing man Mr. Rogers was to all of us. What a gift! He passed 10 years ago, and is terribly missed by the children that were able to grow up with Mr. Rogers like myself. I wish he were still around to greet and teach my girls.
Enjoy this amazing video or our most wonderful neighbor.

Nice ShotPosted 01/28/13
LeBron James put himself one step closer to redemption when the 6'8, 250-pound MPV jumped into the arms of one lucky Heat fan, after he drilled a $75,000 half-court shot.
As cheese-ball as this video is, I love it. Man, I would love to have a standup arcade like this with hundreds of old classics on it. When I worked at Alena for a short bit, they had a similar arcade set up in their break room.
I was... less-than-productive some days when I felt the need to play Gauntlet or Asteroids.
Painting Coconuts - The Audi quattro® ExperiencePosted 01/16/13

So Real It's ScaryPosted 10/23/12
In an advertising move that's both hilarious and horrible, electronics company LG installed a grid of its new IPS monitors in the floor of an elevator, creating an optical illusion that made it appear riders were about to plummet to their deaths.
In a YouTube video posted by LGBlogUK, the displays are arranged on the floor in a three-by-three grid. The horrified faces of the allegedly unsuspecting elevator riders are then filmed for comedic, er, marketing effect when the floor appears to give out.
Using the tagline, "So Real, It's Scary," the ad dovetails nicely with Halloween -- a holiday that encourages scary pranks.
The Jumper - Follow Up VideoPosted 10/19/12
I received a lot of heat for posting a photo but no video on this subject. Here is my attempt to appease the masses. Enjoy. I especially like this video as Van Halen's Dance the Night Away is playing in the background. Coincidence? Possibly.

The MatadorPosted 09/18/12
We know how to have fun! Usually, a matador will get out of the way for a charging bull. In this case, however, I didn't mind getting run into directly.
Definitely turn up your speakers so you can hear Julia's laugh/scream. As soon as she started doing that, I knew that I had to record it. Classic Julia!
Finding FreedomPosted 08/30/12

Holy Cow! Sometimes you are surrounded by greatness. That has happened to me over the last couple of years. Check out Max & The Moon's new official music video for Out of My Head.

Beep Beep Beep!Posted 07/20/12
After recently finishing a TON of work on our yard, we found that Julia had aquired a new trick. With all of the trucks that were coming by to deliver dirt, rocks, concrete and other materials she heard a lot of them beeping while in reverse.
What we found was if she heard the beeps from trucks or even anybody she would stop what she was doing and start walking slowly backwards. As you can imagine, it has continued to be a trick that brings us to laugh-tears.
With the weight of Great Britain on his shoulders, Andy Murray came just short of breaking a 76-year Wimbledon losing streak to Swiss tennis star Roger Federer. During the Brit's post-loss speech, all of that pressure came pouring out of his eyeballs.
Oh man, this kills me on so many levels. If the girls end up like this (which is somewhat likely) I might have to puke. Twice. Maybe more.
Here she is internet!

Amazed by how cool this could be. Not entirely sure how practical it is at this point but I'm sure that it will get some legs.
Here's another video showing off the Leap Motion.
Lego Art - PBSPosted 05/17/12
LEGO blocks are one of the most beloved toys in the world, playing a role in many a person's childhood. But for some creators, LEGO has evolved from toy to art form. In this episode, we talk to three LEGO artists who have made beautiful mosaics, amazing stop-motion videos, thoughtful sculptures, and have turned these tiny building blocks into a true artistic medium.
Looks like we have our hands full. Watch Julia throw caution to the wind with this fun trip down the slide. Looks like we'll have our hands full once she is a bit older. Oh boy!
Roger Waters - The WallPosted 05/08/12
Here is my far-off-and-away video from my iPhone from the show. The quality is pretty ho-hum but hey, it is STILL super awesome. Later in the video you can see the magic that the projections on the wall portrayed. What a night!
NOTE: If you would like to see a better version of this video, taken in London AND with David Gilmore showing in tow, click here.
Below are a few photos that I took throughout the show. Notice the different builds of the wall. As more and more of the wall was built, more images and video could be projected onto the canvas leading up to the dramatic "tear down". Remarkable. Show of a lifetime!
Pretty remarkable, right? Anyways, if you have the means and this show is coming to your town, I can't stress enough that you really NEED to go see it. You won't be sorry. I give you my trusted seal of approval™.

When you work in advertising, you're obsessed with advertising. Luckily, obsession has its place at the 2012 Dallas ADDY's.
Got a pretty good giggle out of me. I feel this guy's pain a lot of the time. A LOT of the time. It still amazes me when clients can't see my genius and want to question my creative decisions.
World's Largest Rope Swing - Widescreen VersionPosted 02/23/12
Sign me up! I'd do this in a heartbeat. Well, I might have to poop first... but THEN I'd be ready to go! Well, I might have to be a world class climber with all super-brand-new equipment that didn't show ANY signs of wear. Oh, I'd also have to be with quite an experienced bunch of folks that knew what they were doing (like Bro-In-Law Jon for instance).
That being said, I'm positive I would not be the first one to try it out. That is a given. Ya, totally not going first. That guy would have to be nuts.

Julia loves her new big balloon. Watch he have a good time with it when we went out to Wahoos the other night.
BTW, Wahoos CO is so awesome. Every month they announce a couple first names that win free drinks at happy hour (limit 3). Now THAT is great marketing!

Upon arriving at John Wayne airport, Julia wanted to try out her running skills. She needs more practice, it seems.
Quantum LevitationPosted 01/06/12
Ok, so Wipe'Out could actually be true? One of the coolest games ever is Wipe'Out, a game were you drive your hover-racer around amazing tracks at high speed. If you aren't familiar with it, just check out the video. It's JUST like that. Rad. Thanks to codechemist for the link.
To stay on top of the ever-changing advertising landscape, john st. has opened the world's first cat video division. With production, filming and seeding all in-house. Ask yourself, what can cat videos do for your business?
Happy 11 Day!Posted 11/11/11
"Eleven is One Louder"
She Walks!Posted 11/09/11
Julia is certainly taking her time in the walking department but we don't mind. Once she starts going, we're afraid we are going to be chasing her everywhere. This clip was taken tonight and shows some of her first really good step combos. It was rare to get more than 3 in a row before today. Over and over tonight she put together around 6 to 7.
I think she'll be unstoppable before we know it.
Face Melting Drum SoloPosted 11/08/11
Julia received her first drum and, as you can tell, she's a natural. Look out Neil Peart, you're gonna have some serious competition soon.
(The new iPhone 4S takes some awesome video. Pure 1080P, baby!)
Angry birds came out with a new update this week for Halloween '11. To help celebrate, they put out this awesome video introducing a new bird. He's awesome. They're awesome. Angry birds is awesome. The fun keeps coming.
The only times when having 2 iPads might be helpful in my household is when a new set of levels comes out for Angry Birds. Kathy and I constantly fight over who gets to play.
Whole Lotta Love - WOWPosted 10/19/11
This video is redic. Michael Winslow at his finest.
UFC Fighter JuliaPosted 10/19/11
Julia recently got into the act of bodyslamming. We thought it was so great that we decided to take a video of her doing her signature finishing move. If the WWE were this good all the time, I might actually become a fan. Who knows, maybe she's on her way to the mini-UFC.
TEDxUCLA - If h is a chairPosted 10/13/11
Why wasn't this guy teaching at UCLA when I was there? Pretty cool talk. Yaaay typography!
One of the coolest montages of people doing extraordinary feats. Makes me want to get my rig out and go for a few jumps, I can tell you that much.
Art with SaltPosted 09/30/11
Wow, this is cool. I'm so glad that the artist didn't sneeze during the process. That would have been a major "OH NO" moment.
Floor MonsterPosted 09/15/11
Took this little vid this morning. Julia loves it when I hide around a corner near the ground. As soon as she sees me, she starts charging, albeit slowly. I could play this with her all day.
Tahiti Tow SessionPosted 08/30/11
These guys are totally nuts! Look at how thick those waves are? I can't imagine dropping in to one of those monsters. I can't even imagine being on one of those boats near the break. Grande cajones!
Ben HowardPosted 08/28/11
I can't wait for this guy's first album to come out in October. It is going to be awesome. If you don't trust me, just take a listen.
I was right, wasn't I?
Google CatalogsPosted 08/17/11
Introducing Google Catalogs, a new rich, interactive way to browse all your favorite catalogs on a tablet.
Danny Macaskill Can Ride a BikePosted 08/16/11
What I should have titled the post is "Danny Macaskill is a Crazy Nutter That Can Ride Better Than Anyone" but I have a bit of a size restraint... sorry. Anyways, check out this guy. It especially gets amazing around 2:45 into the vid.
Don't Play No Game...Posted 08/09/11
Not the biggest fan of the Beastie Boys album by ANY stretch but this video is just fantastic. Nice work. Very nice work.
Who Doesn't Love a Mariachi Band?Posted 08/03/11
This beluga whale certainly does. I'm what you might call a superfan as well.
MuteMath - Odd SoulPosted 08/02/11
This video is awesome. Follow the link to see each of the instuments stripped into individual videos. Cool stuff!
The Man Without a FacebookPosted 07/28/11
Haha. I love it. A funny take on A Man Without a Face.
"Once in a while a friend request will come along that will change your life forever."
George Costanza TributePosted 07/21/11
I REALLY miss this show. George, especially, was all kinds of awesome. Check out the tribute video to my personal favorite character on Seinfeld.
This Is How It Feels To Have A...Posted 07/19/11
I've said it before. I'll say it again. "How awesome is Guster?"
Thriller at a Baseball GamePosted 07/12/11
Wow, this kid can dance! I wonder how that came about. Was he just sitting there and Thriller came on and he was like "YES! THAT'S MY JAM!" or was it something put on by the park (yes, I know, I'm too sceptical sometimes).
How Big is Julia?Posted 07/01/11
This video should answer the question of how big Julia is. Amazing that she passed her 11 month birthday yesterday.
Synchronized SkydivingPosted 06/22/11
This is some crazy air-dancing. Also super excited to see that there is a super sweet tunnel in Prague. That will come in super handy when the Mrs. and I visit next. Not sure when that will be but it WILL be.
Foo Fighters - WalkPosted 06/17/11
Why do I love the Foo Fighters? One reason that JUST came to mind is that they are willing to make a music video and pay homage to a fantastic movie from my youth.
In Falling Down, Michael Douglas plays an unemployed defense worker frustrated with the various flaws he sees in society and begins to psychotically and violently lash out against them. The Foo video isn't as violent as the movie but it is all-around great. Check it out!
Battlefield 3 TrailerPosted 06/16/11
Wow, talk about an immersive gaming experience. My jaw is still on the floor. Amazing, amazing stuff. May actually have to pick this one up. Although, if the multiplayer is like that last one I may pass. That STILL being said, I might get it for the single player. Wow.
Whole Foods Parking LotPosted 06/15/11
Another classic. Reminds me a lot of Dad Life. Enjoy!
"It's gettin' real in the Whole Foods Parking Lot..."
Solar Prominence Eruption!Posted 06/09/11
Don't care for the commentary too much but WOW, what a video. The size of the event is truly remarkable. Take it easy sun. Take it easy.
Go Ride a Bike!Posted 06/02/11
If this kid doesn't inspire those that don't ride bike to jump on one, I feel like there is no hope for you. Man, this kid is awesome. Thanks to @Halfwheeling for the link.
Thumbs Up For Rock & Roll!
The LaughPosted 05/20/11
With Grandma in town, Julia is having a BALL! Listen to her laugh while she plays at our house last night. That little girl. My goodness. She kills me.
Still Bouncing!Posted 05/17/11
Julia's latest video to show all of you that she has yet to get tired of her door bouncer. She was afraid you all forgot.
Hugs & Kisses,
Duncan - Paul Simon & RaynaPosted 05/16/11
How amazing is this? What an amazing moment for a lucky fan.
"Paul Simon has brought joy to so many for so long, but on this night he made Rayna Ford's dream come true. During a show in Toronto on May 7, Rayna Ford, a fan from Newfoundland, called out for Simon to play "Duncan," and said something to the effect that she learned to play guitar on the song. In a moment of astonishment and disbelief, Paul Simon invited her on stage, handed her a guitar and asked her to play it for the crowd. When she strapped on the guitar, the audience went crazy. In a few strums, the band played along, tears ran down Rayna Ford's cheeks and Simon stood by her side in smiles."
Horrible BossesPosted 05/11/11
Looks HI-larious. Seriously, when can I see this? Oh, right. July 8th, like the trailer said.
"For Nick, Kurt and Dale, the only thing that would make the daily grind more tolerable would be to grind their intolerable bosses into dust. Quitting is not an option, so, with the benefit of a few-too-many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con, the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers...permanently. There's only one problem: even the best laid plans are only as foolproof as the brains behind them."
Dear 16 Year Old MePosted 05/10/11
Great message. Send it around.
Bach in a ForestPosted 05/09/11
Doesn't need much explaination. Just watch it. Some people have way too much time on their hands if you ask me. Time... and a crapton of talent too.
Mumford & SonsPosted 04/26/11
There has been a lot of really good Scottish bands making their way into my collection as of late. The latest that I've found is the above Mumford and Sons. So good! If you like that and want more, I highly recommend "We Were Promised Jetpacks" and "Frightened Rabbit" as well. Real good music folks!
White Limo - Foo FightersPosted 04/13/11
This song is so good, I can barely keep my pants on. Yes, you heard me right.
Atomix for iPadPosted 04/07/11
AREA 5 PRESENTS: ATOMIX: THE WORLD'S FIRST VIDEOGAME MAGAZINE DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY FOR THE IPAD
A digital video game magazine? Yes, please! Just on what these guys have put out in the past, I'm on board. Can't wait to see what kind of stuff they come out with. So excited!
Tempest Freerunning AcademyPosted 04/05/11
How fun does this look (and dangerous)? I hope they have an ER right next door for all the shattered bones.
Highlight for me is the area that looks like Super Mario. Awesome.
Hawken - Mech FPSPosted 03/31/11
Wow, this game looks ridiculous. I haven't been fired up (yes, a pun) about a mech game since... well... seems like almost a decade. This one could be the one to get me back into the game (ta-da, another one).
If only I knew what platform(s) it was coming out on. I guess time will tell.
Shop VacPosted 03/22/11
Ken posted this cool kinetic typography video back in December. Looks like I'm just getting around to posting it here on IM. Definitely worth a watch. Let's you really appreciate the power of good typography.
If you don't appreciate it after seeing this, then you are just dumb.
Sax Man!Posted 03/14/11
I love these types of videos. Guy walks into a group of unaware people and does something unusual. Hilarity. Ahhh George Michael must be so proud.
Thanks to @Halfwheeling for finding this for me.
Big Head Blues ClubPosted 02/28/11
Another reason why I love Big Head Todd & the Monsters... as if I needed more reasons. Here is a performance of All My Love is Love in Vain, originally belonging to the great Robert Johnson.
Orelha NegraPosted 02/25/11
I have no idea what this is all about. All I know is that it is incredibly cool. Am I right or am I right? Thanks to Karen for sending this along.
El Camino del ReyPosted 02/25/11
This is some crazy stuff! I would love to think that I would be brave enough to walk this trail but I'm sure that when it came down to it, I would certainly hesitate at SOME points.
I first saw this video (or another video of the same trail) years ago. Still nuts! If you're ever in the climbing sector of El Chorro in Spain's Andalucia, you should check this out!
25 Best SoundtracksPosted 02/24/11
Found a pretty cool article on Time.com about the best movie soundtracks of all time. Although I loath some of these (not the one above, of course), they are all very memorable.
Sadly, I haven't even seen some of the movies on the list. I guess that is what Netflix is for, eh? Time to get watching. I think I'll start with Easy Rider.
Wow, I want that truck. Pretty sure Kathy and I (and Julia) would be doing this all day, every weekend.
Roadtrip NationPosted 01/27/11
Crazy to see what some old friends that I grew up with have been up to. Very cool project that has gone way further than I ever thought it could. Remarkable. Way to go Nathan and Mike!
IBM Centennial Film: 100 X 100Posted 01/25/11
Wow, this film is done REALLY well. Can't believe how long they have been around, influencing technology and driving innovation.
3D - No GlassesPosted 01/24/11
Cool concept? Sure.
Would I ever try it? Negative. Nothing like sending your muscles into convulsions to better your viewing experience. I think I'll opt for the glasses if the time ever comes.
Willow Smith vs. Sesame StreetPosted 01/20/11
Miniature WhistlerPosted 01/19/11
Whistler gets the tiny treatment with this tilt-shift video, turning one of the biggest ski areas in the world into a living, breathing snow globe.
Dan sent me this. These guys are nuts! I wish that I had their cajones. Well, it's probably better that I don't, actually.
Apple TVPosted 01/07/11
Kathy got me an Apple TV for Christmas this year and I must say that I absolutely love it. I subscribe to numerous video podcast, YouTube channels, Flickr feeds among other media streams. Keeping up with all of these has been manageable on my computers and other devices but the Apple TV does such a good job of simplifying all the UI to give me what I want, when I want it... and on my LCD TV!
Watching photo slideshows is also a special treat as you can finally see the hi-res media that you have captured in years past come to life on a large screen. Same goes for movies made in iMovie. It basically takes all of my digital media and sends it to the most optimum viewing device, the TV, and for that, I am extremely thankful.
Julia's Door BouncerPosted 01/05/11
How cute is she? Honestly!
A twisted/different view of a Christmas tradition.
Stupid RainPosted 12/23/10
Christmas wasn't so merry in Laguna this year with some serious floods in my home town. Pretty lame stuff. Stranger still is that here in Colorado it's completely dry, sunny and mild.
Lego G(r)eek ComputerPosted 12/10/10
An uber-egghead named Andrew Carol, who works as a software engineer at Apple, has re-created the amazing Antikythera Mechanism using Legos. Ancient Greeks created the device in 100 B.C. to predict astronomical events. This is incredible.
Thanks to Dano for finding this for me and sharing.
Flash Mob - Christmas StylePosted 12/08/10
Very cool. These things are pretty popular these days but I rarely see people so talented. Do you? They have some pipes!
I wonder how I would feel if I happened to be caught in the middle of one of these. I bet I would probably just be pissed that nobody invited me to be involved. Crying while they sing. So sad.
Christmas iBandPosted 12/08/10
Wow, what a bunch of nerds! That being said, I think it's really cool. Technology really is changing things, isn't it? Duh.
Thanks to Karen for linking this to me.
Something LurkingPosted 12/07/10
Now THAT is a cool commercial. I hate to think how many man-hours it took to complete. Very cool.
Kings FirecrackersPosted 11/30/10
I was mildly impressed when this video started going. I used to jump rope when I was a kid and I thought I was pretty darn good at it. WRONG! I sucked. Check out these talented girls!
Infinity BladePosted 11/08/10
I've been poo-pooing so many of the iPad games that I have seen up to this point but am happy to report that the tide seems to FINALLY be changing. A new game, called Infinity Blade, is coming out soon and looks ridiculous. Take a look.
The Vendor Client RelationshipPosted 11/02/10
Oh man! How true is this video everybody? Wow. Love it. Thanks so much to CodeChemist for finding this and sending it my way.
Happy Halloween!Posted 10/31/10
We had a nice Halloween with little Julia this year. She dressed as, no, not a pumpkin. Actually, she was dressed up as Winnie the Pooh.
You can see a photo of her outfit here »
Hope you all had a fun, safe time out there. Happy Halloween. Oh, and Happy Birthday to brother Jon too!
Moleskin Pac-ManPosted 10/21/10
Moleskine celebrates the 30th anniversary of Pac-Man, pop-culture icon of the Eighties.
Kick, Kick, KickPosted 10/19/10
Heheh. More documented Julia greatness. She's either going to be a soccer player or a swimmer. I really need to get more video of the little one before she gets too big!
Sometimes I see a music video and just say WOW. This is one of those times. I'm not sure if it's brilliant or awful. One thing is for sure, I'm pretty sure that I will probably be having nightmares about these characters.
I can see the band going back to the director or creative director countless times and saying "it's just not weird enough yet". In the end, I think they nailed it.
Cool Hunting VideoPosted 09/28/10
I don't subscribe to a lot of video podcasts... or audio podcasts for that matter. Of the handful that I do enjoy, Cool Hunting Video is way up near the top.
“Founded in 2003, Cool Hunting is a destination for creative professionals and those looking for the newest original content spanning everything from molecular gastronomy to conceptual design.”
What it really is on a more basic level is truly interesting and massively addicting.
Baby MonkeyPosted 09/23/10
Having a bad day? Week? This will brighten your spirits. What is it? Why, a baby monkey riding a pig. Yup. Enjoy. Also note how great the song is.
More Julia FootagePosted 09/09/10
We took this video a little over a week. She's just so CUTE! Check her out trying to ride a phantom bicycle or something. She's super active all the time.
FUN - It's ContagiousPosted 08/30/10
What a great idea! Reminds me (and probably all of you) of the piano scene in the movie Big. Enjoy!
The 90s Top 50 Music VideosPosted 08/26/10
Pitchfork Media has put together a list of what they think is the best 50 music videos from the 1990s. I'm not sure about some of videos on their list but most of them certainly take me back to happy times. Below are a few of my favorites. Enjoy!
If you'd like to see the entire list, click on the link below all the videos.
Daft Punk - Around the World
Foo Fighters - Everlong
Weezer - Buddy Holly
Tallest Man on EarthPosted 08/26/10
Here is a nice live show of Tallest Man on Earth performing I Won't Be Found. This guy is so gifted, it hurts. If you don't already own his Shallow Grave album, you are DUMB. Get to iTunes music store or your local record shop now.
Scott Pilgrim Vs. The WorldPosted 08/25/10
Has anyone seen this movie that can give some feedback? It looks super-awesome but I haven't heard peep about it. Any feedback is appreciated.
Dragon Age 2 - Destiny TrailerPosted 08/23/10
I didn't play the first Dragon Age but after seeing this trailer for the first one, I certainly am considering picking both of them up. Just looks amazing, doesn't it? I don't even care that it's only a cinematic. If they put this much effort into the videos, the game MUST be fantastic. Looking forward to seeing more.
Ratchet & Clank: All 4 OnePosted 08/18/10
Oh boy, oh boy! A new Ratchet & Clank game is coming out and this one has co-op! Finally, the Mrs and I will be able to run around together and save the universe. Insomniac continues to put out great titles and I know that this one won't disappoint. Apparently, you can play co-op with friends over the network. Who wants to join in the fun?
Dibs on playing as Quark.
Quiznos - Human SandwichPosted 08/10/10
One of the better ads I have seen these days. Ha! Oh, and yes, Quiznos is delicious.
Baby Julia - Day 4 VideoPosted 08/03/10
Just having fun with our new baby girl. Ain't she the sweetest? We had quite a long day with Julia and in the evening she perked up and came to life. We were having so much fun that we decided that we had to capture some of it on video (well, our Nikon 5000). More to come, no doubt, as we have our cameras pointed at our little one pretty much all the time.
Hopefully we don't burn everyone out on material.
The Winnebago Man TrailerPosted 07/23/10
We try to keep InfectedMedia as family friendly as possible. This one certainly falls outside those borders those. If you are opposed to profanity, or are watching with someone who is, please do NOT watch this clip.
Additionally, probably NSFW. Same reason, lots of cursing
All others, please enjoy. I know you'll probably get a chuckle. I've seen this guy on YouTube for years. Classic.
Beck - Happy Wednesday!Posted 07/14/10
Katie posted this on FB and it just made my morning. Love Beck. Video is great too. I really wish I could pull off some of the outfits that his band is rockin'.
Pilot HandwritingPosted 07/07/10
This is one of the coolest web apps that I have seen in some time. Basically, you can print out their type templates, draw your own characters, upload them to their site and create your own font that looks just like your handwriting.
I'm not sure how well it can deal with glyphs but I guess I will have to go through the whole process to find out. Looking forward to it!
Airplane - 30th Birthday!Posted 06/28/10
Wow, it's been 30 years since this gem came out. Truly, truly hysterical. I love this movie, always have. If you have the means, I suggest you take some time out of your busy week, pull out your old DVDs and take a laughing trip down memory lane.
Joey: Wait a minute. I know you. You're Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. You play basketball for the Los Angeles Lakers.
Roger Murdock: I'm sorry son, but you must have me confused with someone else. My name is Roger Murdock. I'm the co-pilot.
Joey: You are Kareem. I've seen you play. My dad's got season tickets.
Roger Murdock: I think you should go back to your seat now Joey. Right Clarence?
Captain Oveur: Nahhhhhh, he's not bothering anyone, let him stay here.
Roger Murdock: But just remember, my name is [showing his nametag]
Roger Murdock: ROGER MURDOCK. I'm an airline pilot.
Joey: I think you're the greatest, but my dad says you don't work hard enough on defense. [Kareem's getting mad]
Joey: And he says that lots of times, you don't even run down court. And that you don't really try... except during the playoffs.
Roger Murdock: The hell I don't. LISTEN KID. I've been hearing that crap ever since I was at UCLA. I'm out there busting my buns every night. Tell your old man to drag Walton and Lanier up and down the court for 48 minutes.
Taken By StormPosted 06/22/10
A new documentary is in the works about the most influential album artist in history. Trust me, probably 80% of the albums you own were designed by Storm Thorgerson (if you have good taste in music of course). This guy is truly a genius.
I have linked the Kickstarter project so that you can donate to make sure this film gets completed. Love it!
"Storm Thorgerson designed 80% of your record collection and has been called the sixth member of Pink Floyd. This film about his life is guided by the lovely notion that beauty and poetic discovery can send us back in time. Soundtracks, signed posters, and original artwork await you."
Sony E3 PresentationPosted 06/16/10
Fun fun! Can't wait for some of these games. Most notably, so far, has to be Twisted Metal. Man, those have always been fun to play.
You can watch the entire presentation here. I would have embedded the video here, but Gamespot's player has embed issues. Stupid Gamespot.
World Cup!Posted 06/11/10
Soccer. This clip just kinda sums it up... especially after watching the France game today that ended in a tie of 0-0. Come ON!!!
Lego PrinterPosted 06/02/10
This video seems to be pretty much everywhere today. Doesn't reduce the impression it had on me though. Super cool. I'd love to have a printer like this. Wouldn't you?
Gary ColemanPosted 05/28/10
You'll be missed Gary. You filled my childhood with a lot of laughs. For that, thank you.
The Office: Woof!Posted 05/21/10
This scene from last night's Office just about killed me. So good, I may just have to watch the whole episode over again. Hilarity!
I'm definitely going to have to Woof! this post so that I can be notified via, well, everything!
My Time: Minus the BearPosted 05/18/10
I realize that I have already posted a music video for the single off of the new OMNI album. This new one, however, seems to be more of the official type. As you can probably tell, I can't really get enough of their music. Great stuff.
For those of you who would like to get the new album, you can find a link to it here. If you want to get even more of their music, I highly recommend their Planet of Ice album which you can link to and listen to here.
Le Tigre - DeceptaconPosted 05/13/10
Every once in awhile, I come across both musical and visual bliss in the form of a music video. This is a perfect example of one of those times.
Thanks to Buzz for the link.
Pantone Plus Matching SystemPosted 05/12/10
Description from linked page on techi.com:
Pantone today unveiled their new Pantone color matching system, Pantone Plus. The new system adds new colors, new tools and a new arrangement to make viewing colors in a range easier.
The Pantone matching system is a valuable tool in any designers arsenal, and with these changes Pantone is hoping to remain on the cutting edge of color selection. The video features Pantone’s iPhone and iPad app, myPANTONE.
One new useful addition is the inclusion of a light checking tool that ensures correct lighting for selecting colors as accurately as possibly.
Check out the new Plus series at Pantone’s website.
Roller CarouselPosted 05/11/10
Karen at work sent me this little gem this morning. What a great way to start a Tuesday! I love it so much.
I'm sure these guys thought it might start getting kinda fast, like the Tea Cups at Disneyland or something, and maybe get nauseous but I bet they weren't counting on this kind of ending! Tremendous! Roller Carousel!
Little Big Planet 2Posted 05/10/10
Well, they finally announced the upcoming Little Big Planet 2. If the second one is anywhere as glorious as the 1st, I'm sure the Seybolds will have to pick up a copy later this year. Fun fun fun.
Oh, and if you don't already have the first game, you should.
Starcraft II - BetaPosted 05/07/10
OK folks, the beta for Starcraft is out and I'm wondering how everyone likes it. I'm sure it is beautiful but is it really something special?
If it is, I could really use a beta key folks. Come on! *wink* *wink*!
Mike Patton's Mondo CanePosted 05/06/10
I'm really not sure what to make of this. Mike Patton, most notably of Faith No More fame has a new project. He is taking Italian classics and singing them behind a full orchestra. If that isn't your "WTF" moment of the week, I don't know what will be.
Here is a description that I found on the linked page:
Mike Patton of Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk, Peeping Tom and Fantomas fame is back with his latest musical endeavor, Mondo Cane. Not one to rest on his laurels Patton has dived right into the Italian songbook of pop songs from the 60’s and 70’s.
Backed by the grandiose sounds of a full 40-piece orchestra and singing completely in Italian, Patton makes the music of Ennio Morricone, Gino Paoli, Johnny Mathis and more entirely his own. The title of the album is in reference to the notorious 1962 Italian shocumentary Mondo Cane and the translation is “the world is a dog”, appropriately fitting for a release bearing the Patton name.
Starcraft II CampaignPosted 04/26/10
I came across this video showing some of the details on Blizzard's upcoming release. This game is going to do anything but suck. The bigger question is do I have the clicking prowess still with me? I doubt it.
Baby Room UpdatePosted 04/19/10
Had quite a big weekend getting ready for the little one. We started by tackling the baby room beginning with a fresh paint job. After weeks of deliberating on color choices, we finalized on two shades of green. As we are waiting to be surprised by if we are going to be having a little boy or little girl, we were somewhat stuck with either green or yellow for the theme color. We weren't really psyched on the yellows that we found so green seemed to make the most sense. The video has a hard time conveying the colors but trust me, the room looks awesome.
It all went a little further after I put the crib together (one of the most exciting things I have ever done). It is gorgeous, isn't it? We are just so happy how well everything is coming together. We need to put up some pictures and add some little polishes to the overall room theme but you can really start to see where it is going. Woohoo! Babies!
Alice for the iPadPosted 04/14/10
I really do think that this is pretty cool. Think of all the learning possiblities here for kids. Want to see engaged readers? This is one way to really get the ball rolling. And just think, the iPad has only been out for a couple weeks!
"Tilt your iPad to make Alice grow big as a house, or shrink to just six inches tall. This is Alice in Wonderland digitally remastered for the iPad. Play with the White Rabbit's pocket watch - it realistically swings and bounces. Help Alice swim through a Pool of Tears. Or hand out sweets that bounce and collide with the magical talking Dodo."
Sketchbook Pro for iPadPosted 04/09/10
I have seen a lot of apps for the new iPad. Nothing gets me more excited about the new platform and it's capabilities than an app call Sketchbook. Imagine being an art student with a tool like this. I don't think I would do anything but doodle and play with this amazing tool. Check it out in this video.
The link goes to a Wired article highlighting 15 apps that are "must-haves" for new iPad owners. I'm not sure about all of them for me but am certainly wowed by most.
Muppet FridayPosted 04/02/10
What better way to welcome the weekend in than with the Muppets signing "Stand by Me"? I can't think of a better way either. Enjoy! Oh, and Happy Easter!
Hard Ticket to HawaiiPosted 03/29/10
This movie clip from the 1985 movie "Hard Ticket to Hawaii" is one of the most random I have ever seen. I may have to pick this up in the 99¢ bin. If I did, I would certainly be overpaying.
Thanks to Sliozis for finding the IMDB page. Check out some of those CLASSIC quotes!
PS22 Chorus - "LISZTOMANIA"Posted 03/16/10
For your daily dose of "that's awesome".

Minus the Bear - My TimePosted 03/09/10
Minus the Bear has a new album coming out May 4th and I, for one, can't wait to get my hands on it. Check out this little music video and get to lovin' it.
Also notable is that they are touring around soon. Wish they were coming to Denver. Jerks.
Google ChromePosted 03/09/10
I think I might be a convert to Google's new browser. I just love it. Fast, secure, better CSS compatibility, etc. I highly recommend it to those out there not happy with their current browsers. I'm looking sternly at you, IE users.
Dolphin BubblesPosted 02/23/10
“Watch the dolphins at SeaWorld Orlandos Dolphin Cove as they artfully create and play with underwater bubble rings and hear what SeaWorlds trainers, educators and guests have to say about this fun and fascinating behavior.”
Free, Essential Mac AppsPosted 02/17/10
A nice list of FREE apps for everyone in love with their mac. I have pretty much all of these in the list. Trust me, they are all great.
Ugh, I hate the CNET embeddable video player. Sorry for that. Too many ever-present controls. Haven't we learned that all controls for online videos should be user initiated? Take note from Vimeo or YouTube.
Pelican Attacks WeathermanPosted 02/17/10
This is just too funny. I think the weatherman was enjoying the attack a little too much. Funny, funny.
Neutra Face: A Musical TypefacePosted 02/12/10
Wow, this was almost TOO much but I had to post it because I really have to support my designer friends out there. One of those "hard to watch all the way through" videos. Yikes.
* Thanks to Stacia for finding this for me.
The Muppets: Beaker's BalladPosted 02/09/10
Wow, I am feeling crappy today with a head/chest cold. When hearing of what a rough day I was having, codechemist sent me a link that turned my mopey attitude right around. Who doesn't love Beaker from The Muppets? Nobody, that's who! Thanks codechemist!
20 Years of PhotoshopPosted 02/02/10
This week marks the 20th anniversary of the Adobe product that literally changed my life. I think that I first started tinkering around with Photoshop when it was in it's 3rd iteration which was around 1995. From that moment, I loved how artistic I could be without using traditional methods. I have many fond memories playing around with brushes, colors and it's newest feature, LAYERS with Dan on my Apple 6300!
Through many iterations of the program (I am currently rocking CS4), I have remained thankful for the awesome tool that has been enriching my work and creativity.
I could go on and on about Photoshop but I won't. That last thing people want is for someone to get mushy about a piece of software, right? Instead, I will point you off to a great article about the history of Photoshop. For super PS nerds, I have included a video with one of the creators who gives a nice interview on it's history. Enjoy!
Sawyer Pierce, The Shap ShowPosted 01/21/10
My man Sawyer bringin' the house down. What a STUD!
Diablo 3 Teaser TrailerPosted 01/14/10
I don't know about you fools, but this game has me excited. When watching this trailer, I wasn't sure if I was watching something from Lord of the Rings or what. Amazing stuff. It will be fantastic.
Michael Jackson TributePosted 01/12/10
Michael Jackson Medley - Brett Domino - AX Synth KeytarPretty much the best thing I have ever seen. This guy RULES! Thanks to Fillup for the link.

Coors DrivePosted 12/22/09
Well, we finally moved into our new house in Golden, CO. Check it out with this wonky walkthrough that I filmed yesterday. Hopefully you'll get an idea of why we fell in love with it so fast.
1 Year Ago TodayPosted 12/14/09
My Dad died a year ago today. As much as I miss him I still get by remembering all of the great times that we had together. I can only hope that my kids some day think so fondly of their time with me.
Pandemic Studios Says GoodbyePosted 11/24/09
Last week Electronic Arts put a bullet in the head of Pandemic Studios, putting many of their 200 staff out of work a week before Thanksgiving.
Today Pandemic ex-staffers let EA know how they feel. Maybe the publisher should be happy that all they lost was a printer in the mass firings of developers skilled at making games with destructible environments.
Jason Segel SingsPosted 11/19/09
Actor Jason Segel (of "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" fame) performing an original song, with The Swell Season, at The Wiltern in Los Angeles, CA. Nov 18, 2009
Here's how this happened... The band was at a restaurant in Los Angeles; drinking tea, when they were offered a bottle of wine by two celebrities. Paul Rudd and Jason Segel. Now The Swell Season has been enjoying watching their "Freaks & Geeks" DVDs while on tour, so this was a nice coincidence. They became good acquaintances, so The Swell Season asked Jason Segel to be a surprise guest and sing a song for us. Wasn't this too cool?
Google WavePosted 11/14/09
Found a nice video (very long and thorough) on Google Wave. I know there are a lot of people out there that don't know a lot about the upcoming Google product. This should give some insight on what they are working on.
Art & CopyPosted 09/30/09
I really want to see this. Might be tough as there are limited screenings. If it is in your area, check it out.
Everybody Loves SketchPosted 09/17/09
Truly amazing. I want this. Would be so great for conceptual drawing.
Jeff's Last ShowPosted 09/14/09
My buddy Jeff played his last Quiet show last Saturday and it was fantastic. Andy and I traveled out to Hollywood to watch the festivities and scored when they decided to end the show with a personal favorite of mine, "He's Just a Friend" by Biz Markie. Great song, great cover, great band. We'll miss you on stage Hef!
Cobra KaiPosted 09/10/09
Kathy's new national skydiving team is now called Cobra Kai. I think it is just hilarious as they chant "Sweep the Leg" and "Strike First, Strike Hard, SHOW NO MERCY". It is all just great. To add to their fun, I have recommended amazing Joe Esposito song You're the Best Around. I'm hoping they play it in their team room and right before jumps. Hilarious! Additionally, I think they need these shirts, right?
Gob's SuitsPosted 08/26/09
Man, I really miss this show. Brilliant! COME ON!

TomTom iPhone App ReleasedPosted 08/17/09
TomTom has released it's application that lets you navigate via GPS with your iPhone. I've always been a fan of TomTom (even without owning one). Now, with $99 I could hook it up to my iPhone and have all the same tools available in a $400 unit. Yaaaay!
Sand PaintingPosted 08/13/09
Kseniya Simonova won “Ukraine’s Got Talent” by telling stories through pictures she drew in sand. A whole bunch of awesome.
Love HurtsPosted 08/11/09
Got me to giggle a bit more than I was expecting.
The Wedge - Newport BeachPosted 07/29/09
I grew up in this area and used to go watch guys with huge cajones attack the super-shore-break Wedge. It is something to behold when the south swell kicks in and starts throwing huge reflection waves off of the jetty.
Tron Legacy (2010) TrailerPosted 07/27/09
MMMMmmmm... Tron. This actually looks pretty amazing. Although, I still think the original film looks amazing. Will this movie live up to the rediculous expectations it will most certainly gain? Only time will tell.
Best Wedding Entrance EverPosted 07/23/09
Title speaks for itself. Check it out!
Thank You YouTube!Posted 07/14/09
YouTube has announced that they will cease to support IE6! They have recently posted warnings on the top of their pages letting users know that if they are using the old, poor browser, their experiences will suffer. As a web developer, this makes a lot of sense as writing code for it is a total nightmare.
If you want to see something completely messed up, view this site in IE6. It is borked and it always will be. I hate IE6.
Post-It LovePosted 07/14/09
This is just great. Thank you youtube! Not sure if this is an ad for Post-It or not but it sure should be, don't you think?
We Won't BreakPosted 06/15/09
A very cool music video that Sonyl sent me. Catchy tune and a great animation style. Definitely worth a (few) viewings. It's also fun to check out some of their other videos as well.
LED SheepPosted 05/04/09
Need a break? Here is a good way to spend the next 2:44 of your internet life. Very cool stuff.
Happy St. Patties!Posted 03/17/09
One of my favorite days of the year! Enjoy! To help celebrate, please partake in this old Muppets video.
The WozPosted 03/10/09
Steve Wozniak, Apple's famous brain and engineer has become a contestant on Dancing with the Stars. Yikes! Watch his first attempt on the stupid-except-for-this show. Gotta give him props for going for it, no?
Check out my new favorite dog, Blizkit, the sleep walking lab. If you like this video, there are a few others out there of this little guy doing the same kinda thing. Hilarious!
The SnuggiePosted 02/10/09
A funny parody of the snuggie infomercial. I really, really hate this frickin' product.
Guitar Hero: RealPosted 02/03/09
Somebody buy this kid a frickin' real guitar already. Watch the crazy fingers at work on "Through the Fire and Flames" on expert.
Jared likes this video and so do I.
Need StoragePosted 12/03/08
A must see commercial. It is just classic.
Mr. Spriggs BBQPosted 11/20/08
Probably the best commercial I have ever seen. I would be ALL over this place if I were anywhere close to it.
YouTube HDPosted 10/16/08
Apparently some videos have been upgraded in quality, and adding either "&fmt=18" or "&fmt=6" to the URL of a video will make it available to users.

Great video. Get out there and vote people. Register!

Swimming LegendPosted 08/18/08
The next great swimming legend from Equitorial Guinea. Thanks to Phong for the link.
One of the best plugins I have ever downloaded. Check it out, it will certainly make your browsing of sites like YouTube, Flickr, Amazon and the like more entertaining.
A fun and silly video on how to silkscreen your own t-shirts, jackets, bags and pretty much anything else. This would be really fun to do if I wasn't trying to sell off my equipment at the moment.
Honda CommercialPosted 06/04/08
Difficult Is Worth Doing - A very cool commercial with a bunch of skydivers making some very complicated formations. Wow.
Mario RC Car & BottlesPosted 04/17/08
To remind you of when you used to work really hard for no other reason than that you were passionate about what you were doing.
Beat Boxing & CookingPosted 04/16/08
Pretty awesome. I wish I could beat box like this. Yes, I know, completely unrealistic but I still would love it.
Raining McCainPosted 03/25/08
You think Obama Girl is crazy? Check out McCain's girls. This just fantastic/horrendous. Pitch perfect!
Hey JudePosted 03/07/08

Silent LibraryPosted 01/11/08
Just watch it. I was in tears (from laughing so hard) by the end.
Jason AlexanderPosted 01/04/08
I bet he wishes he didn't have this in his body of work. McDonalds, singing, good times.
Machine Girl TrailerPosted 12/14/07
This is by far the craziest movie trailer I have ever seen. Def need to not be offended by gratuitous blood and violence to proceed to link. Wow. Go machine girl.
Dance, dance, dance!Posted 12/05/07
Wow, I think I found out where Kathy and her brother David get all of their great dance moves. Maybe they were given lessons by their cousin, Mary, seen here. Wow, that's good stuff.
Brenda DicksonPosted 11/16/07
"Welcome to my home." This is simply hard to watch and hard to stop. Wow is all I can say.
Squirrel MeltsPosted 09/25/07

Some guy playing some Charlie Brown music on an nylon acoustic guitar. Good times.
MS-DOS 5 PromoPosted 09/11/07
One of the best/worst videos I have seen in as long as I can remember. I can't even begin to explain how things like this get made. AMAZING!!!
If I Could Be Anyone...Posted 09/05/07
... I would definitely be this guy. One of the best covers I have ever heard, one of the best music videos on the planet. It plain and simple doesn't get any better than this.
Miss Smart UniversePosted 08/27/07
This girl is amazing. I know, I know, she is under a lot of pressure or whatever. Or, maybe she is just as dumb as a stump.
VTI Rocks!Posted 08/24/07
Check out this promo for the Video Technical Institute from 1987. Man, it's so good, I would sign up in a heartbeat. Ahhhh... the 80's, how I miss them so.
Swedish ChefPosted 08/23/07
This guy used to crack me up as a kid. Still does, really. "Bork! Bork! Bork!"
The HoffPosted 08/23/07
If you can't get enough of David Hasselhoff then this might interest you. For the rest of you, it will probably just hurt. What is Germany thinking???
Russia's Got TalentPosted 08/20/07
If our "America's Got Talent" show had guys like this on, I might actually have to watch it. Luckily for me and my schedule, they don't so I can spend my time doing other things, like, well, watching different shows.
Wave PoolPosted 08/16/07
Crazy wave pool action from Japan. The title pretty much sums it up, where is the water? Who know, all I know is that Japan is an island that SHOULD have a ton of coastline and waves. Go there, dumbasses.
This guy is just amazing. I think I have seen him 3 times now w/ Kenny and Kathy. Good listenin'.
Mew - Snow BrigadePosted 08/15/07
Another reminder why this band kicks so much ass. Love it! Looks to be quite a windy performance, eh?

Hilarious spoof from the Jimmy Kimmel show. Definitely got a giggle or two out of me.
Why Japanese TV RocksPosted 08/09/07

An Army of BassPosted 07/09/07
Spinal Tap's Big Bottom played with, literally, an army of bass players. Hilarity.
This is just about the best music video ever. Imagine Braveheart, the movie, with a big slice of metal.
Dramatic LookPosted 06/20/07
You ever have a video on youtube that you just have to watch over and over and over? This one did that for me. Awesome.
Simpsons MashupPosted 06/20/07
Check out this Simpsons version of Die Hard. Pretty funny and spot on. I bet you could do an hour long short w/ these kinds of scenes.
One of the best commercials I have ever seen. Man, so good.
Cool New Video PlayerPosted 06/06/07
As the number of video players and YouTube-esque companies continue to rise, the better online video players will become. This is the coolest one that I have seen in quite some time. Of note are the options to drag the video around the window and brightness/contrast control.
Star Wars TrailerPosted 04/26/07
It is amazing to me that the Star Wars movies were able to be as successful as they were in spite of having some of the WORST trailers in history. Check out this one for Empire Strikes Back. Who is that guy narrating? Aweful!
Pole PositionPosted 04/23/07
A great commercial for one of the first games that I ever owned. Wow, this vid is just great.
Safety Word: Pineapple!Posted 03/21/07

Exploding SharkPosted 02/01/07
They just don't make shows or movies like they used to. Check out this amazing video from Batman: The Movie. It just keeps getting more and more outrageous.
Stefan's ChokeshowPosted 01/05/07
Worst hockey play you will ever see in your entire life.
Why I love this show so much. Check out my favorite clip EVER! Go Turk, GO.

Meaty Cheesy BoysPosted 10/18/06
Remember this commercial for Jack In The Box? How awesome was this... "What's a target?"
Nerds UnitedPosted 10/10/06
Google has aquired youtube. Wow, that is a big deal. And it all happened for the bargain price of 1.6 BILLION. Wow, I bet these two guys will need surgery to remove their smiles.
Stuff like this really makes me wish that I still was in math. Good stuff nerds, good stuff!
Coolest Door Ever!Posted 10/02/06
Man, I bet this would cost a fortune but man would it be worth it. GIMME!!!
Janice Janice Janice...Posted 09/22/06
One of the funniest videos I have seen in a long time. Partly sad, really, but the reaction of the mother/lady throughout the clip is priceless.
Silver SpoonsPosted 09/15/06
Browsing around You Tube I ran into this gem. Man, my sister Stacey and I saw every episode of this show. SO GOOD!

I'm Heading Out!Posted 08/04/06
Kathy and I are taking a road trip to Colorado for the next week so i apologize in advance for the lack of posts. Maybe Applenerd or Kenzo can pick up the slack. Well, I thought I would leave you with something spectacular. Here it is, introducing a blast from the past, BALKY.
Work It OutPosted 07/26/06
The new Jurassic 5 / Dave Matthews music video is up on the web. Pretty good stuff.
One of the most fantastic public figures was on Larry King and was... well... legendary. Check out the highlight reel here.
Probably the most painful thing I have ever watch. Check out this Adam West TV show that should never have been. Wow, wow, wow. This is incredibly bad.
youtube + $$$ =Posted 07/05/06
eefoof.com. The newest of countless viral video sites. The difference with this one? The site offers to share it's ad revenue with the movie makers. COOL! If only I could make cool movies.
Sling to Your PhonePosted 06/16/06
Have a super-duper phone? Have a slingbox too? If you have both, you can now watch and control your tv from anywhere. Man, that is pretty sweet. Now if only there were some good programming.
