I think I made this in 2001. It was around the time prank calls using Arnold soundboards were really popular (I’ve got some of those, too), and I can’t remember if I made this at my parents place, or at the house I lived at for that one year in college.
Because, yes, in college, I mostly lived with my parents. Or as I liked to say at the time, “with an elderly couple”.Read the rest of this
I was working on getting an old project updated, and I stumbled upon this beautiful artifact. #TTYB, or expanded: “Take that, you bitch!”
In this new age of hashtags, I encourage you to use this gem. And don’t limit yourself to apps/sites that recognize hashtags. I find hashtags are used best in mediums where they serve no special purpose, like email, text messages, and hand-written notes.Read the rest of this
My girlfriend was in a really crumby mood, so I sent her this video. I also shared it with another friend, and in a very small way, it went viral. Viral between 5-10 people.
And hey, it still cracks me up, so maybe you, too.
In 2009, I emailed my friend Sam this 70 minute video review of the Phantom Menace. I figured if me, as a casual-sorta-fan thought it was real interesting, he’d love it.
I don’t think he ever watched it, but 5+ years later, he’s still replying to that email thread.
My favorite comment, 3.25 years later: “I really think I’m going to enjoy this”
Over Thanksgiving I watched Planes, Trains, and Automobiles for the first time (I know). But it reminded me of a video I started making years ago, which I have unearthed and accepted that it’s something I’ll never “finish”, and this is all that it is.
I’m not sure what it would have been, but I’ll tell you this: the first 25 seconds still crack me up consistently. The combo of the Insane In The Membrane intro and John Candy being obnoxious on a flight… that just does it for me.

This restaurant serves some some the best Thai food in town, and with some changes, I will make this a five star review.
- You need to add a back patio with a fountain. The fountain should have colored lights in it, which would look really cool at night.
- Add apple pie to the menu. My mom has a great recipe, and that’s the one you should add to the menu. I love apple pie, and it would be great if this restaurant served it.
- The “authentic Thai” menu items aren’t that good. If you offered deep fried chicken as an option, it would be better.
Once these things are changed, I will update my review!
