I can’t remember how I stumbled upon these videos, but aparently I put them online August 17th, 2007. These videos were made in 2001? 2002? I can’t remember. There are two videos here back to back and a trailer for the first video at the end of both. They star my buddy Daniel Dee of Post Modern Side Show fame. It wasn’t for any video class, although I took some later on. I think it was just for shits / giggles. I think mostly it was an excuse to have him clean out the apartment, while I sat back and held a camera. Anyway, enjoy a look back into the pre Mayor Awesome / Post Modern Side Show days.
The first video is a music video (Song titled “Bionic Jam” by the Baldwin Brothers), the second one is a little more “artsy” to say the least. I can’t remeber where I got the audio for it. I think off a Beck album. The third is a trailer for the music video.
I just found out that the geniuses at futurepinball.com have made a pinball physics engine / pinball creation engine:
“Future Pinball is a real time Pinball Development System. It allows you to design and play your very own pinball simulation in True real time 3D. It uses Advanced Physics to provide the best possible Simulation of [...]
Shepard Fairey is the fella who made the (most famous) Barack Obama poster. He’s currently in a little bit of hot water about the image he used as inspiration for his poster (one of which is hanging up in the Smithsonian, so suck on that AP news). I, of course, totally ripped the dude off [...]
I’ve just submitted my first (of hopefully many) shirts to woot.com. If you have an account, and you fine my work pleasing please go and vote for my shirt.
It’s a combination of previous comics, so that makes it self referential, which is one of the critical design elements, right?
Being an owner of both a mustache and a beard, I have a special place in my heart for women who… um, have a special place in their heart for facial hair. Here are two of my favorite songs about face fungus:
Now, I’m the sort of girl who is equally happy sitting down with her knitting to watch Masterpiece Theatre on a lazy afternoon as I am to go out with the boys to watch My Bloody Valentine 3D. Sure, sometimes I mix things up a bit – y’know, maybe I’ll work on a little embroidery [...]
I’m so jealous of these kids. They get to play around with a giant ass screen (actually a bunch of screens networked together). A fellow named Daniel Shiffman teaches a class and writes books about a programming language called Processing. I’m slowly learning the language in my spare time following along with this book (Which is excellent [...]
I was recently in the bathroom at an all-girl Catholic school (don’t ask) and I saw this vending machine. My first thought was “Holy Cow! They’re selling condoms at a Catholic school?!?!” Then I realized that the only choice these girls get to make is pads vs. tampons. Go girl! You got a choice! We’re [...]
This guy is my hero. I was once spotted on a Jumbotron. I was at a White Sox game one cold autumn day with my buddy Commissioner Cool. They started up the fan cam and I told Comm. Cool that if we got on it we had to start picking our noses. Not 20 seconds [...]
The Space Game is a space-based RTS involving building up a mining base while holding back enemies.
Earlier levels see mining asteroids being the main priority, while later on surviving wave after wave of incoming attackers in the number one concern. It’s simple but very polished, with a number of different modes to choose from and a [...]
I just got done watching the Ween Live At The Cat’s Cradle DVD [$16, cheap]. It’s pretty amazing.
The DVD captures the lo-fi beginnings of the duo circa 1991. Each video is either them performing live in a small basement, pre-recorded in a basement video session, or during the recording sessions of pure guava.
Watching them at [...]
From a space.com article about the size of the observable universe:
“All the pieces add up to 78 billion-light-years. The light has not traveled
that far, but “the starting point of a photon reaching us today after
travelling for 13.7 billion years is now 78 billion light-years away,”
Cornish said. That would be the radius of the universe, and [...]
Thank you wikimedia for allowing people of all stripes to create their own themed wikis.
The next entry in the march of humorous wikis is Dickipedia.
It’s a collection of people who are lumped into the intersection of douchebags and mean.
Some of the writing is entertaining:
From Reagan: “Reagan was credited with saving 77 lives, only 66,923 less [...]
Hey guys, I just wanted to share with you my friend’s (brand new) blog: Aaron Brouwer Photography. He’s my personal rock climbing hero, all around nice guy, and a REAL MAN. Here’s a link to his professional web site. He works for my friend Tina (blog) who is a bad ass photographer who’s pictures were just in People Magazine. Tina also took the header image you see at the top of this page. Here’s a few pictures he took while we were on a rock climbing trip to Joshua Tree, California:
Here’s me on a route called Sail Away:
My friend Bonnie on top of Sail Away:

Some light grafiti we shot:

After 16 years and 2,725 shows, Conan O’Brien’s final episode as host of NBC’s “Late Night” airs tonight. Jimmy Fallon takes over the “Late Night” gig on March 2, and Conan inherits the “Tonight Show” from Jay Leno in June.
“I’ll probably cry like a baby on Friday night,” hetold the New York Times‘ Bill Carter.
The week has been filled with Conan farewells — from Will Arnett to Stephen Colbert to New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg — but in honor of Conan’s last show (for a few months), check out these classic Conan highlights from over the years. Check back later for video of his final episode.
I was just in New York with my buddy Comissioner Cool to see Conan. It was an awesome experience and I’m glad I got it in before he went of to greener pastures. I’ll miss him on Late Night, but I look forward to seeing him again in June.
Here are some pictures of myself, Commissioner Cool, and our good friend Larry David from my New York trip (click to enlarge):
Boing Boing Gadgeteer John Brownlee asked his reader to submit pictures of their duded up laptops. I sent a pic of my little MSI Wind in and he posted it. Weee! Some of the other laptops are pretty cool too. But, objectively speaking, mine’s the awesomest.
A racist political cartoon (pictured) published by the New York Post is being denied to be thus. The editorial board of the NYP are either idiots (for not seeing it) or idiots (for thinking we wouldn’t see the image for what it is). Why not just stand for what it is, a publicity stunt?
I’ve just been invited to The World’s Largest Pie Fight. I’m pretty sure it’s invitational, so if you’re itching to go, you’ll have to go to the organizer’s website.
Weezer holds the record with 120 people. What’s better to stimulate the economy than wasting pastries.
Here’s some video from a San Francisco Roller Disco Pie [...]
According to Snopes.com, swiffer products are _not_ dangerous to your pets. I had been guilty of perpetrating this myth. Someone smart told it to me, so I believed it.
That is, of course, unless you clean your floors with gasoline.
I’ve been a programmer for about 15 years. I’ve rubbed shoulders with some pretty smart people. I’ve also had the pleasure to work with people who can’t quite grasp complex programming tasks or methods.
I _used_ to be a little pendantic. Granted, there is the occasional dope who is completely worthless and drags the team down. [...]
