Here's Rachel's entry for Toaster Film Festival back in 2003. Her little brother, the star of the film, uploaded it to YouTube today. It's awesome.

As soon as we get the video cable adapter for the digital video camera, I guess we'll start posting some Mokpo video. Look forward to it!

Nuclear Winter

Here's another picture from a couple weeks ago... Rachel snapped this one just as the sun was going down behind Mt. Yudal. Looks like it's gonna be a long, cold, lonely nuclear winter. (Pictures taken from the balcony inevitably have wires in them...)

We Surrender!

I found this one on Microsoft's new Soapbox video sharing site.
Give it a few seconds...

Daft Punk Flashback

My friend Travus has been working on a new track and asked me to take a crack at some processing. So I'm going to run it through Cool Edit and apply some filters and compression and see what happens. The song has an Electro feel to it and is pretty cool; reminds me of Daft Punk's "Around the World". Don't know that one? Here's the video courtesy of Google Video. Enjoy.

Wake Me When it's My Turn

Rachel (best wife ever!) bought me an Xbox 360 for my birthday. Here's a picture of Bob enjoying the game Gears of War.

This Video Kills Me Every Time

Not much to report this week, so here's a video that is really, really amusing.

Edit: Had to remove the video because it was annoying. (Damn auto-play...) You can still watch it here.

BTW: I have added a section on the sidebar called News, Comics, & Music. It's where you'll see links to my Shared Items on Google Reader. Just some stories, webcomics, and such that I find interesting. You may enjoy them. Or not. Whatever.

Superbowl Monday?

It's bright and early Monday morning. While many Americans are glued to the Superbowl on TV and holding a cold beer, I'm holding a cup of coffee and watching an exciting game on the laptop.

Thanks to the guys at Cricket TV for doing an awesome job providing the live stream from England's Sky Sports.

I admit that watching the Big Game on Monday morning is kind of weird, but it's also pretty damn exciting. Billy Joel's rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner" even had me a little choked up. While I am enjoying my time here in Mokpo, it's nice to have that connection to home, to know that I'm an American, doing something that is unique to America. (Sure, other countries are watching the game, but do the Nigerians following along really understand football? Do the Latvians that are tuned in understand that this is the real end of the Holiday season?)

I'm in Korea, watching an American football game being played in Miami, broadcast by a British TV network. God, I love this Internet thing- I sure hope it catches on...


Colts win! Colts win!

I'm not a giant Indianapolis fan, but I've been a Tony Dungy fan since he coached the Bucs. I would have liked to have seen him win the Superbowl back then, with Monte Kiffin as his defensive coordinator, but it never came together on offense. The Bucs went on to win the championship the year after Dungy left, of course, but it should have been his ring. Whatever. He's got his hands on the Lombardi Trophy as I type this and I'm happy for him.

Peace Park Pics

With sunny skies and temperatures in the mid 40's, it was a beautiful day in Mokpo, so Rachel and I went for a walk. Here are some pictures for your enjoyment. As usual, Rachel is behind the lens... Click each one for the large version.

Fire and Ice

It's been snowing for a couple days, here in Mokpo, but without much accumulation. It sure is pretty, though. This morning we heard sirens and looking out from the balcony saw an awesome plume of smoke from a fire about a mile away. Here are some pictures.

As always... Click the picture for a larger version.
