I Love Mashups

Whether its music or video, I love it when someone takes original works and "remixes" them to create something completely different. Here's a few great video examples:

10 Things I Hate About Commandments

Brokeback Top Gun

And probably my favorite, the Shining Remixed

The Times They Are a Changin'

Remember when you used to go to a rock concert and wave you lighter in the air? Shoot, I didn't smoke but I bought a bic to take to the concert. Well, according to this post, the new thing to do is wave your cellphone in the air -- the LCDs creating a similar effect as the lighter -- without the added risk of setting someone's hair on fire!

Seat Guru

I was just booking a flight to Europe for a business meeting this summer and since I was going to have to fly an airline that I don't normally fly, I was curious what was the seating arrangement for USAirway's A333 jumbo jet. I stumbled across this amazing website,, which is an absolutely wonderful guide to seating arrangements on all the major airlines and planes out there.

Hey! Hey! What do you say?!?!?!

After giving up 9 goals in the first four periods of the playoff series and losing 2 games on home ice, the Carolina Hurricanes have won four straight games to book their ticket to the 2nd round of the playoff!

Guess I better be on in the morning looking for tickets, eh?

Best Laid Plans..

What is it they say about best laid plans? Back on New Year's Eve I blogged about my intention to read a bunch of books and review a bunch of albums this year. And I got off to a pretty good start too (6 books and 18 albums in the first month). I also rambled on about how I was going to become of king of the mountain and tour North Carolina on my bike this year.

Well, things change...

On January 26th, an investment group from Rochester, NY announced that they were bringing a professional soccer team to my hometown. I immediately dropped all my bookwormish plans and aspirations of being the next Lance Armstrong (okay, maybe Stretch Armstrong would have been a more realistic goal) and started a fan club for the new team. Then, somehow I managed to volunteer to intern as the new team's webmaster and IT admin until they can hire someone permanently.

So I've been completely consumed with those two endeavors for the past 3 months and I guess we'll chalk my new year's resolution up for now. But I am pretty proud of the other two projects. Check out the website that I designed for Triangle Professional Soccer and I'm excited to announce that Triangle Soccer Fanatics now has 25 paying members and more than 105 email list members.

Here's a picture of our supporters group in action at the USA v. Jamaica game in Cary a few weeks ago (notice the cool TSF flag in the lower left that Griffin designed for me!)...
