YouTube Bans Naked Pumpkin Run Video - Bad YouTube!

I was informed today, Nov 8th, that my 2007 Naked Pumpkin Run Video has been pulled from YouTube. I logged onto my account and sure enough I saw the words "Rejected (content inappropriate)" next to it!

YouTube you suck, no really, It's OK to publish wanton acts of Violence, rip long scenes from bootlegged DVDs and issue a message to the world before you go and shoot your mates in the school yard but nudity, well have none of that!

Naked Pumpkin Run on CNN - your bottom to be broadcast to millions around the globe!!

Update: Here is a link to the actual footage that aired on CNN. Fame at last!

Star Wars with Trumpet

Sit back, relax and enjoy the jolly trumpeting of a Nebraska beauty pageant entrant as she blow her trumpet to the very appropriate accompaniment of "Star Wars". Note that it's not just a trumpet but an intergalactic light saber phallic thingy too! In tribute to Al Gores recent victory we also get to see her walk like a Penguin. This is my new fave video for absolute silliness.

Animoto - create slideshows

I stumbled upon a website called Animoto. Upload 10 photos or more, add a sound track they provide and hit the magic button and out pops a MTV style remixed video of your photos. The kool thing is that no two videos will be the same and if you don't like the mix they create the first time around then you have the option to remix it again and get different effects. This is gonna be hot peeps!

Mic and Headset recommendations for Skype

(This articles describes my experience with external computer microphones.) I've been doing the internet voice chat thing for years, mainly to talk to the family back in Africa so I've had my fair share of microphones in the past.

Stop Taping flyers to my front door !

I came home the other day to find a brightly colored yellow flyer taped to my front door. When you see such a thing the first thought that pops into your head is that perhaps it's some kind of public service announcement "Gas leak, do not enter" or "Will be turning off the water at such and such a time - be advised ..." But on this occasion is was none of the above - it turned out to be a shameless promotion for "Hazardous Tree Removals and Stump Grinding"!


My impressions of Apple iPhone - a mini review

I like to start off by saying that I don't yet own an iPhone but I'd like to post my impressions of it here from the 30 minutes of intimate time we spent together at my local Apple Store here in Boulder on Friday 29th of June 2007. The photos to the left were take with an iPhone at the Apple Store (modified with ImageWell).
