Tour Time

Since Lance is going for the jersey again, I thought I would throw up one of my favorite videos from the Tour. It was pretty cool seeing some semi cyclocross get busted out.

Inspiration Thursday

Most of you have already seen this but it's still really good. My wife is an artist and showing her this video gave her some ideas. This dude is really talented doing everything from shooting and editing to making the music. Oh, and for you anti-Mac pro PC fanboys, this is pretty much a commercial for Apple.

The wife did some painting last weekend. Gosh it looks so good. I'll
have to find a good "before" pic.

Didn't she do a great job though!

I just watched "Confessions of a Superhero" and really really enjoyed it. I thought I would make the great Superman my wallpaper for the week.

Check out the movie:

Canon 5D MKII test 2

Danny Lyon: shot this and I edited. I'm very new to Final Cut (coming from Avid) so the effects I added may be a little over the top but I literally just edited this in a few minutes and added music from my friend Josh, over at Lark Studio:

Filmed on the roof of our building in downtown Washington DC. Enjoy!

A great pic by jamesdale10:

I did some slight editing to the photo but not much.

UAV's look like a lot of fun to fly. This the Reaper, one of the hunter killer UAV's.

Side note, have you seen how big the Global Hawks are?! They are huge!

Mobile Post

Testing Pingle from iPhone to blog. Do not adjust your screen.


Some of you may already be following me but since I've been using it a lot more, I thought I'd post something about it.

I use Twitter. Actually, I'm starting to use it quite a bit and there's some good mini posts in there.

What is twitter? To take an excerpt from TweeterNet (which you should really check out):

Twitter is a social networking and microblogging service that allows you answer the question, "What are you doing?" by sending short text messages 140 characters in length, called "tweets", to your friends, or "followers."

So, with that said, check it out, see what you think and if you sign up, be sure to follow me, hopefully you'll find it interesting!

With all the snow we had the other day I thought I would just pick something to go right along with it.

FedEx "DC Metro Delivery"

FedEx must be the latest corporation in trouble financially, looks like they had to cut their truck services and put their delivery men on the Metro. Red line to Shady Grove.

I win things from time to time, whether it's an iPhone, some free coffee, being part of a podcast.... I'm like a super mini celebrity when it comes to my friends, I'm just popping up everywhere. Well I though I'd go through and share some of those moments.

In the back of the Tulsa magazine "Square" there was a contest that shared some lyrics and asked you the name of the song, well I got it right! I won a t-shirt and my pic in the mag! Sweet!

Music Video Monday/Tunes Tuesday

I didn't come across anything that just jumped out at me the other day but a friend tipped me off to this video this morning and it totally made my day.  Probably helps that I like this song but the iPhone/iPod touch as instruments... well done!

Thanks Danny!
