What Would You Do on a Dare?

This is madness! Does this video really need a description? Fine.

I record a lot of videos. I also happen to stream live video 24/7. I don’t blame you if you haven’t watched it, though. Nothing exciting tends to happen in my office – usually. You may tune in and see me doing nothing more than typing away while music plays in the background. Other times, you might just get lucky enough to see something you’d never expect.

In any case, I tend to record things that may have never been published for one reason or another. Either I’m afraid you won’t understand why I thought a moment in life was worth capturing on video, or… well, it just didn’t seem interesting enough to warrant uploading. You may not understand my sense of humor, or you might not quite get why I find something in life exciting. Our tastes are just – different, you know?

My life is more than just technology, you see. It involves spaghetti, too! It also revolves around music, art, Star Wars, LEGO bricks, helium, PUGS and a long list of things that would take me all morning to write about.

Oh, and – yes, I accept dares. Dare me to do something else on video. I dare ya. I triple-dog dare ya. You’d be shocked to see some of the things that others have managed to get me to do. I’ve gone hiking, cleaned my pores and even have been known to dance around my office in a dress.

Okay, enough. Either you’ll enjoy these clips – or you won’t. To each their own. You don’t have to enjoy what I enjoy. You aren’t required to laugh when I do. You aren’t even supposed to find things interesting that I feel are important to the world.

See? I told you this video shouldn’t have included a description. But NOOOOOOOOOO – you just HAD to have a description for the video, even though I think the description was just as pointless as this particular video upload. That’s the point – to have no point.

Ponzi's Garbage Pail Kids

Ponzi’s going to be a Garbage Pail Kid!!! Yes, you all know my fascination with Garbage Pail Kids (even though I’m still mising Bonus Card B5, COLE Gate). A few weeks ago, I emailed Luis Diaz with a small request: that he create a GPK incorporating Ponzi’s two names (well, “Ponzi” is just her nickname – with Latthanapon being her birth name). You see, as I was going through ANS5, she lamented that they never have any GPKs with her name on them. I thought: “Let me see if I can commission an artist to surprise her.” Sure enough, Luis will create a GPK just for you (different options at different prices). He whipped up this sketch:

Pencil Sketch - Ponzi GPK - Garbage Pail Kid - Piercing PONZI and Lust-Upon LATTHANAPON

This will be made into two separate cards: Piercing PONZI and Lust-Upon LATTHANAPON. And today, did a series of watercolors for us to choose from (yes, I couldn’t hold the surprise back when the original pencil GPK sketch came in). We picked the upper far right and the lower far left – which will be arriving in traditional Garbage Pail Kids sticker dimensions soon enough. This is just too cool:

Final Watercolor Copy - Ponzi GPK - Garbage Pail Kid - Piercing PONZI and Lust-Upon LATTHANAPON

These cards will be priceless! I may ask him to go back and render a full-color version of one of ’em to make it look like a genuine GPK. Maybe I’ll just commission another one? What about… WINER Diner, Noble SCOBLE, KEVIN Rosey, Scary ARRINGTON, RUBEL Yell, Tin CANTER, PIRILLO Armadillo, Messy MESSINA, or PONZI Screams? Those would be perfect giveaways at Gnomedex.
