is this how superman feels?

For some reason my sense of smell today has been so incredible — I’m at a complete loss. I can smell *everything* and it’s completely bizarre. I knew something was amiss when I got into my car this morning and noticed several weird scents. At first I thought I smelled cat pee, but as I […]


the javaone experience

Sitting on my bed at the Raddisson Hotel in Orange County, California and listening to the distant sound of the showers in adjacent rooms. I’ve distinctly heard the soap drop several times in the shower within the room to my right. All this soap dropping reminds me about Paris Hilton and her impending journey to […]

Quick update as i’m typing this on my phone. I’m in San Francisco for the JavaOne conference. I have my cameras, so expect something when i return. Sorry this is so short. Super Genius out!


austria trip podcast part 2

I’ve finally gotten around to editing down the second half of my Austria trip. My videocamera is mounted on top of my iRobot Scooba vacuum cleaner in the intro. The chill music is from a french group named AIR. It’s a track called ”Redhead Girl” on their recent album Pocket Symphony. After that, we pick […]

I was driving to work on Friday morning and was startled to witness a white bird with grey wings literally racing the car in front of me. The bird was easily flying 60 miles per hour. I kid you not. At first I thought tragedy would occur at any moment. I’ve seen birds unexpectedly fly […]


spider genius

It was cold last night so I figured I’d kill some time. I recently purchased an extra camera battery for my Canon Digital Rebel and I hadn’t really shot anything with it. I dragged my old Spider-Man costume from 2004 and slipped it back on. Fits well. I’m not that far off. I did a […]


rhythmic ceremonial ritual

Been busy writing lots of documentation at work this week to the point that I’m starting to get writer’s block. For every one thing that I’ve figured out how to resolve there’s two things that I have to figure out why I had to do anything about whatever it was giving me s*** in the […]


the chew chew experience

Last summer I was searching for a tiny camcorder to take with me to the Madonna concert. I bought a JVC HDD (hard disk drive) camcorder. I eventually returned it because it was large and bulky, but not before I filmed this snip of video featuring Chew Chew. Today I randomly decided to make this […]
