Help solve this case...

... or at least be entertained by it.

If you don't know who Arin Crumley is and haven't seen the film that he made... sister, that's the biggest crime.

Cute as Hell!

Here's a video for a song that I made a video for:

Unfortunately I wasn't able to get any cute French dancing kids.

Inspiration in a Box.

Have 18 minutes and need some inspiration? Hear how the creator of Alias, Lost, Cloverfield and yes Felicity gets inspired. Fun and worth the time.

Interested in more movie stuff? See how 3 designers shot a "Saving Private Ryan" like beach landing using only a few props and themselves as the actors. (No mention of how long the post production took, but still interesting.)

I Love Canon!

Below is a picture of what I looked like when my hella old, 2.0 mega pixel Canon S200 PowerShot suddenly stopped working before the holidays (leading to a painful lack of joyous family pictures):

Then I find out that my camera has been recalled due to a faulty chip or some such nonsense. I send the camera to Canon expecting my old camera (or a similar low pixel substitute) back in a month or two.

But no, dear readers, within a week, I get a letter that says this:

"Due to the current lack of essential components at our repair facility, and in order to expedite your repair, we have exchanged your original equipment with a new or factory reconditioned replacement model of equal or greater value."

Also enclosed is a refurbished 10.0 mega pixel Canon PowerShot SD900 Digital Elph. Did I mention TEN point O mega pixel?

I realize that I got the old camera as a present 4 years ago and this new camera probably cost about the same.

But because Canon exceeded my expectations, and gave me a MUCH better camera at absolutely no cost to me,
A. I will tell (IM, tweet, etc.) anyone who will listen how awesome Canon is
B. I will most definitely buy Canon accessories
C. I will blog about it
D. I will probably buy a Canon video camera when the time comes
E. I will probably tell myless technically savvy friends and family about his good experience with Canon
F. I will probably be a Canon customer for life.

Canon transformed me into this:

You eggs aren't from around here, are you?

I was searching the web for the old TV commercial that told us "Brown eggs are local eggs and local eggs are fresh." I couldn't find it, but I somehow stumbled upon this magical mystery, uh, magic:

Yes, those eggs appear to be dressed as ninjas.

Watch the English animation. Or the Korean animation if you dare.

My research has found that
"I Love Egg is...
Transforms it body into any shape we can imagine.
The main and sub characters make stories pleasantly and lovely."

You can even buy an "I Love Egg" Yamaha motorcycle.
