Geeky Stuff Life Tech/Web Travel Videos

Existential Crisis at Blog World… mostly

And now for something completely different…

Blog World hi-jinks with my bff Amanda Coolong (TechZulu), Pete Cashmore (Mashable), Snaps (the Kangaroo), USB HubMan/kid, a Zannel squooshie schwag yoyo & a lone pigeon.

Powered by my sweet Mostly Lisa Viddler Tees, 2 hours of sleep, 3 chocolate chip cookies, a large scoop of vanilla ice cream, Yahoo mints, some nuclear green coloured caffeinated drink and Las Vegas.

I’ll be the first to admit it. This video is pretty weird, but it oddly enough captures the essence of a Blogging/Tech/2.0 conference very well. That essence smelling something like a mixture of day-old deodorant, guacamole, gasoline, melting plastic, glue, warm cookies, and dusty carpet. *sigh* I guess you just had to be there.

At least this time I didn’t dive bomb a geek with a USendit airplane or lose a whole bunch of dough with Rosie O’Donnell.

Thanks to rocknrollgeek for filming, the MindTouch girl that gave Snaps a special button, and Pete $more for just lookin’ fly.

PS. I think Amanda really needs to work on her interviewing skills if she’s ever going to be considered, like a serious reporter or whatever.

    The video is definitely one of the weirder ones you’ve posted Lisa. But Pete stole the show and had the best lines!!

    See, I wish I had been there for THIS part. But nooooooooo, I had to show up as they were closing everything down, lol. I guess that’s what happens when the stupid security cards don’t let you in because you didn’t pay the $100 cover charge. I say cover charge because I want to make it seem really awesome and cool like a club or something.

    I’m gonna try and find Snaps a friend. Maybe a beaver or something. Or a llama.
