Saturday images up!

Tuesday, July 25th, 2006

Finally got around to uploading the pics last night, trying to keep my mind off the stifling heat.

Pics of the Championship Gaming Event:
I was really interested in the behind the scenes aspect, like the camerapeople and the sound people and the way the whole thing was put together.

Camera crew

Met Tommy Tallarico:

Me and Tommy

And the obligatory booth babe shot. But she’s just dispensing Mountain Dew.

Good times, I wonder when it’ll air.

Also posted pics of SHDH11, hosted at Tom’s place. Since everyone else took pics of the interior of people geeking out, I didn’t feel the need to post mine. I did, however, post the pics of us playing in the pool, cooling off in the heat.

Yoinked this truly awesome photo from Adam:


Yeah, I’m an asshole. 😀

Sanford was kind enough to take a pic of Miles, Tamiko, and me.

Me with Rasteroids

Adam’s photos actually came out much clearer because he wasn’t using the slow synchro setting (my bad, forgot to change it before I jumped into the pool. Check out his photostream for more hilarity.

130 miles

Sunday, July 23rd, 2006

130 miles. That’s roughly how much I drove today.

Drove my mom to the airport for her flight to Taiwan.

Drove to the Bay Bridge to go to the Championship Gaming Invitational.

Realized there was debris on the exit leading to Treasure Island, preventing me from exiting there.

Continued driving until Emeryville.

Pondered options in Emeryville.

Got back on the bridge in the other direction.

Got off at Treasure Island.

Spent a large amount of time at the Invitational (photos to shown upon alertness).

Drove back towards the South Bay via 101.

Kept heading south past my house to go to SHDH (again, photos to be shown later).

The distance measurements and calculations are left as an exercise to the reader.

the Phat Phree -The World

From Phat Phree. I’d like to point out that no video games made the list. 😀

Too damn hot.

Friday, July 21st, 2006

ZOMG.   It ‘s 3 AM and I’m still up.  It is way too goddamn hot to sleep.  Fan going full blast.  Still stifling.

Outdoor bouldering…

Finally got Castle Rock pictures up. Matt and I went on Sunday and it was an ass-whupping of supreme proportions. For one thing, everytime a bug went flying in my ear, that certainly didn’t help my concentration. The handholds are infinitely smaller, and god help you if you manage to find a jug in the wilderness.

It was fun, but I think the photo says it all.

Glu Company Picnic

Tuesday, July 18th, 2006

Pictures from my company picnic are up.

Some choice ones:

Illustrating how easily I can be Jedi Mind Tricked.
All washed up.

Quite possibly my favorite from the set.

After convincing Tamiko to go on the Extreme Skyflyers, we really get some air.

Good times. 🙂

Crazy weekend

Sunday, July 16th, 2006

Man, I’m whupped.

Went to Great America for the Glu Company Picnic.

Did Power Yoga this morning as per my new habit.

Went to Castle Rock to go bouldering in the afternoon.

Came back, showered, and passed out.

Woke up a few minutes ago.

Photos coming up soon.

Of Great America and Castle Rock, not of me showering.

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July people. We’ve come a long way, but we’re still a young country in comparison.
