It's been up about an hour and it is already 26% funded. Wow.

So I started making another video (lots of you have probably seen gobs of my videos), but the equipment I bought turned out to be lame. The good stuff is gonna cost more than I'm willing to spend. A bunch of people pushed me to kickstarter.

I think the video I made for the campaign turned out really cool.

This is delicious.

Today is day 15 of my light bulb tests and the first CFL died. The packaging said it would last 12,000 hours, but it didn't even make it to 100 hours.

progress report: two CFLs are now dead.

In response to a point that I seem to be having trouble making, I made this weird little story I call "Mr. Stinkypants and the CFL"
