The first video is the one you see upon entering the competition. The second video is what the person who is being put "on warning" will receive.

Typical high-end HD camcorders have 2.1M pixel sensors and record with 3:1:1 color subsampled video at up to 30fps. We deliver 11.4M pixels at up to 60fps and record RAW, or 2x over-sampled HD in 4:4:4 or 4:2:2 - your choice. That's more than 5 times the amount of information available every second and a vastly superior recording quality. Don't need all that data for your workflow? Dial it back, and keep all the other advantages of the Mysterium Super 35mm cine sized (24.4 x 13.7mm) sensor. You get the same breathtaking Depth of Field and selective focus as found in film cameras. Mysterium boasts a greater than 66db Signal to Noise Ratio thanks to its large 29 sq. micron pixels. And 11,480,800 pixels deliver resolution that can only be called Ultra High Definition.

During Saturday's game against MSU, Tate scored a touchdown, but he wasn't finished. He knew that a touchdown needs a super-sweet celebration and there was no way he was gonna dissapoint.
Sidebar: What is it with football players and the band? There is some secret dislike here. Stanford/ Cal anyone?So Golden Tate gets the very first Daily Hat Award for Excellence in Punking Band Geeks. Congrats and keep it up!

- I like hip-hop.
- Its simple, interesting visual presentation and use of typography.
- It taught me new slang. I embrace any chance to use new slang. Like Runners and Rippers, Beezies and Marks (okay I knew Mark already).

Below is a pencil drawing of Bob Marley that I did a while back. It probably took about 6 hours to complete (give or take). Enjoy.

- I love typography, but not necessarily typeface design— I just do not have the patience for it.
- I want a letterpress— old skool craft that yields amazing results!
- Learning CSS and HTML is integral— gotta stay ahead of the curve.
- My computer is a noisy mess— okay, I already knew this (:P).
So, to commemorate my type-journey, I am going to share some self portraits that I made out of type. One is hand-drawn and one is a vector illustration. ENJOY!
*Man, type jokes are so lame that they are awesome! Wanna hear another one? OKAY!
What did the kinky type designer get his wife to do to his penis?
He letterpress it! (DRUMS)

From Ron Artest's Twitter page:
"Played pickup bball against an 8 year old today. Beat him 47-1. I teabagged him so many times I nicknamed him Earl Gray!"
Toof is a demented little tooth-fairy-esque character who preaches good dental hygiene and mayhem. He has a crew of evil bunnies that help him with his nefarious deeds. I would love to eventually sculpt this little guy (and his friends)!

Tangent: Isn't it funny how you start out with such grand aspirations only to be shot down later in life? I am sure half of the prospective doctors in my class are working construction or some other blue collar job (nothing wrong with that, but, let's be real, it's no doctor). Another funny thing is the 5 year old kid who said lawyer— WTF?

FROM SUN-TIMES STAFF
He's known for hawking a super-absorbent towels on in commercials, but this pitch man found himself in hot water -- without the aid of a ShamWow -- last month.
ShamWow pitchman Vince Shlomi was arrested last month on felony battery charges for allegedly punching a stripper, according to the Web site TheSmokingGun.com.
Police reports obtained by the site claim that Shlomi met 26-year-old prostitute Lenea Harris at a Miami nightclub, and subsequently brought her back to his room at Setai Hotel. Shlomi allegedly paid Harris $1,000 for "straight sex."
That's went things took a turn.
Shlomi told police "that he kissed [Harris] when all of a sudden [Harris] bit his tongue and would not let go," according to the report.
Shlomi then punched Harris several times until she released his tongue, and then ran to the lobby to call police. Harris suffered several cuts and fractures to her face.

1.The highways don't have enough speed limit signs. I honestly saw 1 over a span of 70 miles. It's confusing and I have heard bad things about the LAPD.
2. RA's still suck. They may actually suck worse than they did before. I was in my bro's dorm (yes, I know that is about the coolest way to start a story that there is), and since it is not a dry dorm I thought I would have a beer while I enjoyed some b-ball in the common area. Aparently you can have beer if you are over 21 and you also have to agree to put up with some sophomore's shit-talk about drinking around minors. Hmmmmmmmmmm. That is bound to happen in a dorm with frosh to senior residents!
3. UCLA has an unbelievable sculpture garden and the campus itself is just gorgeous (and delightful!!!). I have always thought that UGA has a pretty campus and I still do. However, UCLA has an overall theme that is present is almost all of the buildings and it just seems better thought out overall. The sculpture garden is super-dank too.
4. Korean BBQ rocks. That is all.
On another note, I am aware that I have exceeded my bandwidth for my photobucket account and now instead of the wonderfully funny gifs there is this obnoxious white box with red x's. I am going to fix that as soon as I get back home so I can share all the other wonderfully lol-inducing images with my internet peeps!

me: How have you been?
him: Really good I am doing sales in Buckhead, I make a lot of money.
me: Uh, that's cool what kind of sales?
him: I sell cell phone parts. It's boring, but I am making good money.
me: Right, well that is nice.
him: Yeah I mean I graduated from state about a year and a half ago, I never thought I would be making such good money by now!
me: It was good to see you, man. Take it easy. (turns around to talk to someone else)
OHMYGODITISSOANNOYINGWHENPEOPLETALKABOUTHOWMUCHMONEYTHEYMAKE! First: you probably don't really make that much money, so get over yourself. Brad Pitt makes a lot of money. You make a decent salary for a twenty-something single person. Second: are you gonna give me some of this money? No? Then shut the hell up, I don't care. Third: you sound like a douche. A hollow douche at that. If you immediately default to talking about money, then you are probably the least interesting person in the room. I would honestly rather hear about how much you bench press rather than how much money you make. *exhales* I feel better now. Thanks internets!

One of the best prank-wars I have witnessed is between two employees of collegehumor.com, a website I regularly visit. About a year and a six months ago, Amir, one half of the prank-war, basically ruined his buddy Streeter's then-relationship when he put a fake marriage proposal up on the Jumbotron at a Yankees game. This prank has achieved epic status, and as such, I will not embed it here. If you haven't seen it, click here .
As retaliation, Streeter pulled this prank last night at the Maryland basketball game. PWNED.

When a commuter pulled into a gas station in Richland, Wash., to fill up the tank of his 1994 Camaro on Tuesday, he thought the $90 he had on his PayPal debit card would easily cover the $26 bill.
But the tab for fuel at the By-Pass Deli and Conoco station off state Route 240 maxed out his card, and then some, the Tri-City Herald reported Thursday on its Web site.
The transaction, Juan Zamora told the newspaper, was recorded as $81,400,836,908.
"That's a B, as in billions!" Zamora wrote in an e-mail to the Herald on Wednesday.
Zamora was concerned that his bank account might be in jeopardy. So he called customer service for PayPal, only to have to argue with the agent over the bill. "Like I had to prove that I didn't pump $81,400,836,908 in gas," he told the Herald.
Though the customer service person finally realized the error, the newspaper reported, how the glitch happened remains a mystery.
"I guess the moral of this story is 'pay cash,'" Zamora said.

I had lunch with some buddies from school today, and we had a pretty interesting conversation. Here are the Cliffs notes:1) the economy has everyone scared sheetless right now, 2) we don't know what we want to do after school and that fact stresses us out, and 3) We need to step out of our individual comfort zones and expand our interests in order to really be great designers. That got me thinking, and I concluded that I would take it to the nets and see what you all had to say!
So this is what I am proposing: anyone who reads this, post a few of your favorite things in the comments section of this post. It can be anything, a book, movie, musician(s), artist, location, whatever. Post one thing; post 5 things. The more the better! I will start.
Illustrator: Akira Toriyama
Yes, that is the guy who created Dragonball, but he is also a great illustrator who is renowned worldwide for his character design. I mean look at how popular Dragonball is- there is a reason for that (and it certainly wasn't the dub).
Artist: Robert Rauschenberg
One of the greatest modern American artists. His paintings and installations are credited with setting off the modern Pop Art movement in America. He also put a tire around a goat and that is eff-ing cool. Google it.
Photographer: André Kertész
Inventor of the Photoessay. His photos are surreal and peaceful but can also be discomforting and hint at violence. Someone who I really admire.
Television/ Movies: Monty Python
This comedy troupe has affected my sense of humor and comedy in so many ways. The Flying Circus television series, Holy Grail, and Life of Brian are my favs.
Music: 80's synth, Dragonforce, and Bjork
I could have easily put something like The Beatles or Stevie Wonder here, but that would be too typical/ boring. I love the energy, implied color and cleanliness of 80's groups like The Smiths, Huey Lewis & the News, and Information Society. Heck, I even listen to a little George Michael now and then (keep that on the DL).
I love how Dragonforce combines technical skill with over-the-top delivery and humor to create something unique and forward looking while remaining respectful of those who came before. Sonic Firestorm is a great album. Set your face to "melt" and enjoy the furiousity (I know it ain't a word).
Bjork is incredible. Her music is soulful and daring, and she is an individual in every sense of the word. I turn to Iceland's greatest export whenever I need to chill out and just relax. "Hyperballad" and "Human Behavior" are 2 of my favorite tracks.
Please make a contribution and put some of your favorite influences and inspirations in the comments section. It could be really cool to look over everyone's influences. Put your name in your comment or leave it anonymous; it doesn't matter to me (though it would be nice to be able to attach a person to each comment). If enough people contribute, I'll try and do something that would kind of tie it all together. ROCK ON! *punches self in face and passes out......*

LAGOS, Nigeria – One of Nigeria's biggest daily newspapers reported that police implicated a goat in an attempted automobile theft. In a front-page article on Friday, the Vanguard newspaper said that two men tried to steal a two days earlier in Kwara State, with one suspect transforming himself into a goat as vigilantes cornered him.
The paper quoted police spokesman Tunde Mohammed as saying that while one suspect escaped, the other transformed into a goat as he was about to be apprehended.
The newspaper reported that police paraded the goat before journalists, and published a picture of the animal.
Police in the state couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
Belief in black magic is widespread in Nigeria, particularly in far-flung .
WTF? Why can't American cops act this way? If they did, I would just keep a goat with me at all times, and if I got pulled over, I would release it and hide in the back.
