Johnny Johnny on Wine Library TV (sort of…)

So HEY! Gary did a live taping of Wine Library TV yesterday here in New York! I saw the invitation for guests go out on the Twitters so I replied thinking “oh, this will be neat, Gary’s going to get a bunch of interesting people together and we’ll all talk about wine and such, that’ll […]

Super Awesome Animation

About a year ago I attended an satellite event here in New York for a festival called PictoPlasma, which is a super rad european based festival / conference that focuses (loosely) on the art and execution of character design, among other things. Anyhow, Picto NYC had really great presentations and screenings – one of the […]

Super great YouTube video & Propers for Clint

Back from Comic-Con, a super duper time as always. Then blasted up to Vancouver for Sean & Lea’s wedding, which was equally super duper. I’ve got some photos here somewhere and a short video of some of the most bad-ass Cylon costumes I’ve ever seen (which were at Comic-Con and NOT Sean’s wedding, in case […]

Big Tim Hortons Excitement!

Hey! So happy news, Tim Hortons has expanded to New York! 12 Dunkin’ Doughnuts (the perennial New York favorite) closed their doors on friday and were retooled into Timmies over the weekend. By Monday morning, the signs were up and New York was getting its first taste of Double Doubles! I’ve often winged about the […]

iPhone 3GS in the USA!

My iPhone is now in the USA! It’s being detained in Kentucky and (I assume) will ship out Thursday for a Friday delivery! Yeah! How weird does an entire warehouse full of little iphone sized boxes look? I wonder if my phone is sitting next to Leo Laporte’s phone? If so, what are they talking […]

Trip Done & iPhone coming from China!

Ok I’m back in Nashville now from my big trip, at work today. Man did I sleep like a log last night, three days riding that paint mixer beat me senseless. How do people actually ENJOY that abuse? Anyhow, the bike gets dropped off back at the Honda dealership with a “good riddance” in a […]

Tupelo, not New Orleans

Ok, so I had to cut short my ride. Priceline, you can keep my 70 bucks for the hotel in New Orleans. You win this time, Shatner! I simply couldn’t do another 4 hours on the rattletrap crapheap that I rented. I’m now checked into the Scottish Inn in Tupelo – I went from Memphis […]

Bike Update: Made it to Memphis

Ok! So my grand bike trip has begun. I’m currently at my Priceline negotiated hotel in Memphis and I’m too damned tired to go out! My ass hurts, my fingers feel like they’ve been jack-hammering all day. Touching my fingernails makes me cringe. So here’s me, at the start, all excited about my cool bike. […]

Headin’ Down To The Dirty Dirty

I hop down to Nashville every so often for work – my company sends me to Frankin, Tennessee every couple of months to work on a project there. It’s a pretty cool city – great music, some killer BBQ, and very nice folks. Last time I was down the gang in Frankin took me out […]

So Awesome My Head Might Explode

Ok, so you probably know how much of a nerd gamer I am. I mean, I maintain a domain exclusively to show my Xbox Gamer Tag. But this is just too much. They are going to make a Tiki Bar TV Video game and I am the main character. I am the main character in […]

District Nine!

Holy awesomesauce, check this out! How awesome is this! So awesome! How many times can I saw awesome? Awesome. Ok, first, if you haven’t seen the trailer for “District 9”, go and check it out here. Notice the final credit block – how rad is this?! If nothing in that credit block is jumping […]

A Story Told In Three Photos

I’m going through my overflowing iPhoto library and trying to knock down some of the 12,000 photos I have in there. Some of them are doubles – the library freaked out years ago and any photo I had rotated or corrected somehow got doubled – the original AND the copy where there, so when I’m […]

One of the things I love about New York

Most of my friends are sick and tired of me raving about New York. About how I love the energy, how I love the subway, I love the fact I can see the top of the Chrysler Building out my freakin’ window. I love the pizza and the subway and the fact that I live […]

New PSB out March 23

MY BOYS! My beloved Pet Shop Boys are back. A new album comes out in less than ten days!! I’ve been a fan of the Pet Shop boys since I was in elementary school. All the other kids liked Van Halen and Twisted Sister. To me, those were just… boring. Soulless. The same twangy guitars […]

Vegas on a smaller scale… sort of

So I’ve been working a lot these past few months. Like, A LOT. We downsized at my company in December and the work didn’t go away; it just all got piled on me. Which is great in this current market; I’m employed, and working, and indispensable, which is nice, but MAN I got a lot […]
