Monster Massive ’08

This event was really great. We sprung for VIP which is absolutely worth it. If you’re going to commit to

having a good time, a bit extra on ticket prices goes a long way. We were mere feet away from Paul van Dyke at the foot of the massive LA sports arena.

Bourke did a great job helping me put together the costume of my dreams for the event.

Lessons learned:

  • People still love Nintendo
  • Shoulder portion of costume made a great cup holder
  • Using the restroom was awkward on many levels

Chumby Antics

I have been working at Chumby for a few months now. If you have never heard about Chumby – basically, it is a small squishy wifi-internet connected device with a touchscreen and some other nifty hardware features. So, I am around Chumby devices pretty often, obviously, since it is my full time job.

Sometime’s I goof off a little..

This is a video of a small application I made on the Chumby. You touch the screen, and a small blob of “lava” follows your finger around. You basically get the sense of smearing the blobs around the touch screen.

And this is a funny video of a Chumby with two USB dogs humping it.

Bacon McFlurry

McDonalds officially unveiled yet another new flavor of McFlurry this weekend. The latest addition to the McDonalds menu combines the popular McFlurry dessert with the salted and smoked meat from the back and sides of a pig.

Executive Vice President Claire Babrowski says “We were just looking for something new. We wanted to combine dessert and breakfast, and I think we accomplished that.”
