Some videos I made back in college

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.

Pinball Simulator

I just found out that the geniuses at 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 [...]

Big Screens

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 [...]

Girl power!

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 [...]

The Space Game

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 [...]

Far out, man. It’s like, the universe

From a 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 [...]

Aaron Brouwer Photography

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:

Conan O’Brien’s Last Night in New York

From the Huffington Post:

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):
