don fontaine needed to introduce this

In every decade, there comes a Microsoft ad so bad, so horrible, that twenty years later nerds gather around and get all riled up about how horrible a company Microsoft is.  (For an example, here is the 80’s Microsoft commercial, which I posted about earlier).

I proudly offer you this decade’s horrible Microsoft commercial.  Come back in the 20’s and have a laugh (or, alternatively, have a laugh now).

If that doesn’t show up, check it out: the Naughties Microsoft commercial!

It is really cold here.  This temperature is from my mom’s car, which doesn’t account the wind chill (which makes it about -32 C / -25 F).

Interestingly enough, almost everyone had a different suggestion as to what this thing actually is.  As merely the artist of this object, I can’t say what it is.  What is important is the viewer’s interpretation.

So, what do you think it is?

The Mecca of Fountain Soda

Back in Illinois, I stopped by a local gas station and wanted a fountain soda.  I was quite impressed with the selection in the machine, and the sheer size of it.

For 16 weeks I’ve been taking a series of Improv classes, aptly titled Improv 101 and Improv 201 at Jet City Improv.  As an added bonus, at the end of Improv 201 you get to do a live showcase.  And as such, some Youtube is now needed.

Those are the parts I’m in, but if you’d like you can always check out the entire playlist for our whole showcase.  I was fortunate to sign up into a class of absolutely fantastic and creative people.
