I had a story (and video) in today's paper about Austin Laser Art. They did some very cool free iPod/iPhone/Macbook Pro engraving at South by Southwest Interactive and I was able to catch up with Aaron Haley afterward.
Now the Statesman has a new, better video player, I can embed videos I do for work here, too. Here's the video that went with the story:
I also had a How I Met Your Mother weecap earlier in the week that I didn't get a chance to link to:
Bros Before Shows -- The Bro Code is invoked and shown to be violated as the gang deals with the aftermath of Barney + Robin (AKA Robney. Or Barbin, if you prefer).
Not much going on besides work, recapping and playing Grand Theft Auto IV and Mario Kart Wii, both of which I'll be reviewing soon. I wrote some stuff about setting up an Apple Airport Express wireless bridge in the house and some thoughts on the recent iPhone 2.0 rumors over on Digital Savant.
In lieu of having had a Terribly Happy Mix CD this year, I'm experimenting with ways of doing something similar online. I was posting songs on MySpace, until MySpace became kind of a graveyard (they've really sapped all fun out of that place). Recently, I posted a set of 12 songs on Muxtape, which is neat, if bare-bones. You can find the Terribly Happy Muxtape here. Happy listening!
We also just bought an awesome little HD camcorder (the Canon HF100) so I might start posting some short videos on Flickr and embedding them here as soon as I figure out the minor speedbumps of dealing with AVHCD-format files.
Lilly just started taking her first little inchings toward crawling. It's happening so fast. But all these little things never stop being amazing.

Big Pimpin' '08
I've let some links pile up, so here they go, all at once.
I had a story in today's newspaper about Grand Theft Auto IV. We haven't gotten the game for review yet, but the early word is that it's some kind of gaming masterpiece. We shall see. The piece I wrote is more of an essay about the impact of the series and what people should expect.
Also today is a new Smallville recap:
Double-O-Lame-O -- Jimmy plays James Bond, or at least a watered-down-martini version. Lex finally gets to Zurich and Clark and Chloe try to wrap their heads around time travel. Can they go back in time and fix Season Seven?
I also forgot to link last week to a weecap I did of How I Met Your Mother:
Beek Man's World -- James Van Der Beek breaks Robin's heart, again, as a Canadian loser who isn't aging well. Then something amazing happens with Barney.
And lastly, GeekAustin did an interview with me about some tech stuff and my work blog. They used the photo from my blog, which looks like it was taken when I died and went to heaven, but was somehow sad and ambivalent about it.
Whew! I'll write something for reals around here this week. Summer is coming and I can already taste the recapping vacation.
