My new favorite YouTube video

A co-worker forwarded this to me today. Since I am a Web Designer, I just about busted a gut laughing but found myself going “Oh yeah, boy-eee” LOL!

How Time Flies

Thursday, May 13, 2010 | 4:18 pm

Wow. I can’t believe it’s already been almost a month since my last post. I really didn’t mean for it to be so long. My new job has really kept me busy over the last month and a half.

I’m still learning the ropes and reading more books. I’m working on a small, practice Flash game (similar to Tetris), mostly for learning better collision detection and multi-collision detection. I’ve been procrastinating for the last week with it, though. I need to get back on track.

You’d think that making a Tetris-like game would be simple and easy… en toto, it is, it’s coming up with a, what I’ve termed, slot-collision detection scheme. i.e. How to tell when two pieces with very different shapes “notch” together. Coming up with a way to do it hasn’t been my problem, it’s deciding on which one to use and to allow me to expand up later on that’s the problem.

To any of my fellow Kansas Citians, pray for clear skies, I’m tired of this overcast. 🙂

Good News!

Well, sorry to have been away for a spell. A lot of things have changed for me recently.

First off, I got a new job for a large marketing firm locally. Started last week and it’s been pretty cool and busy. I’m enjoying it a lot and the job is a really cool one. Cool co-workers, cool environment and fast-paced work. Oh, and did mention that we are located on the tarmac of the KC Downtown Airport?! Is that not cool or what? I get to see private jets take off, local news stations’ helicopter pop in and out, oh, and not to mention the fighter jets and bombers that buss the airfield. Totally awesome.

Second, my previous employers made sure to get their money’s worth out of me before I left, a couple weeks ago. I guess that’s a good thing. ???? It was hard leaving but I’m glad I did. The place was awesome and I loved the people I worked with, but I needed to move on. So is this profession of mine.

What do I do, you may be asking. Well…. stuff like my own website. I’m a Software Engineer, with a good helping of Flash/ActionScript Developer, all accompanied by a dash of sarcastic whit.

Ode to Fishing

Ok, not quite an “ode” as a funny. ????

Meet Bill Dance. This guy just doesn’t have the right luck when it comes to making a fishing show. Either he has the worst luck in showbiz or he just has a lot of outtakes.

In face, if you’ve never of him or just want to enjoy a long list of fishing-show bloopers click here. You’ll thank me later.

Funny thing

Ok, this is in no way game or video or comic or travel related, but it's just too funny not to share with the readers abroad.

As is my usual, I was perusing and found this little gem. Enjoy or hate me. Either way, it’s still hilarious.
