Stop and Go!

I have a soft spot in my heart for the app Splish Splash Inn by Shortstack. It was one of the very first apps we downloaded for Vivi to play with, and not only did we love the hip, almost Googie-ish designs of the rooms, but the voiceovers repeatedly cracked us up. In fact, we’re still […]

Old or No?

  One thing you NEVER want to do when working at the G4 network is send out a funny internet video, or picture, or piece of news that is considered “Old.” Because if you did – someone was right there waiting to yell, “OOOOOOLLLLDDDD” at you. And since the job of the folks at Attack […]

My Little Geek

Raising a nerdling is an exhausting but ultimately rewarding job. Oh, yes – rewarding already! When my 2-year old daughter can identify the difference between a clone ranger and a stormtrooper – well, it just brings a little tear to my eye. And hey, now seems like a PERFECT time to RE-TELL the story of […]

Being Elmo

  Before my daughter had even seen a clip from Sesame Street, she knew who Elmo was. But do YOU know who Elmo is? Thanks to one of my favorite “nugget a day” websites Very Short List – you can watch the trailer for the film “Being Elmo,” the documentary about Kevin Clash, the man […]

A New Use For Dr. Seuss

I love to look at those lists that they give to professors that explain the state of the matriculating freshman class. You know what I’m talking about? The ones that say things like, “They have never lived in a world where Madonna wasn’t famous.” Naturally, I look at my daughter and wonder what kind of […]

My Little Nomads

As I write this, it’s another hot friday night in Los Angeles, my husband is out of town and that can only mean one thing: I am partying like a fool! When I say “partying like a fool,” of course I mean, noodling around on the internet, tweaking photos in Aperture, ripping DVDs to my […]

The Waiting is the Hardest Part

Nothing, and I mean, NOTHING makes me RAGE harder than having my “gold time” frittered away by some nonsense. No, I don’t mean “gold time” in the sense of working more than 10 hours – I’m talking about a mother’s precious gold time.  NAP TIME.  I have a window of time to get things done, […]

Yowayowa

  A friend of mine just sent me a link to a marvelous photography blog. I’m enchanted with these self-portraits of Natsumi Hayashi- who always photographs herself levitating. That’s right, let me say that again – these are SELF-PORTRAITS! After years of following the Adventures of the Dancing Kids, I guess I’m a sucker for […]

Love Momiji

One day, I was shopping with my friend in Little Tokyo, when I came upon some super funky stickers. I showed them to her and then put them back, commenting, “I never really understood what you are supposed to do with stickers.” Without missing a beat, she responded, “Kristen. You put them in your sticker […]

Portal 2 Done 70’s Style

I am LOVING this 70’s style movie poster for Portal 2.  Might even pick one up when it’s finally for sale in the Valve Store.  It’ll go nicely with my Aperture Parking Permit, which I  have been quietly sporting on my car for a couple of years now. What do you think… totally awesome for […]

Can You Katakana?

One of the many nice things about working for G4 is traveling. Thanks to Attack of the Show and Ninja Warrior, my husband and I have been to Japan quite a few times – and this October we took our daughter (then 13 months) with us. Tokyo with a toddler in tow was just incredible. We met people […]
