My Favourite Schwag from the New Media Expo

One hour before NME in Las Vegas was brought to a close I thought to myself, “What is the best way to wrap up this extravaganza of media madness?” After approximately 5 minutes of deep thinking, I came up with dive bombing random people with DIY wooden airplane.”

Thanks YouSendIt for this wonderfully fun bit of schwag, I hope you don’t mind dealing with a few teeny tiny injury and dismemberment lawsuits. I’m sure they are just after a money grab. The propeller barely grazed… ahem *severed* the tendon. What?

Thanks to Doug for filming me and perhaps aiding in the building somewhat of an aviation expert.


I’m gonna take you riiight into the DANGER ZONE!!!

What’s your fav schwag?

I defy you to beat the awesome factor of this schwag. If you can provide an adequate photo or description, I may be impressed.

    I didn’t get a lot of awesome shwag, but I did get a chapstick from shutterstock, lol.
    And the mostlylisa tshirt. But that’s not really shwag, I think of it more like a gift from you to me :D

    Seeing as you brought it to me personally.

    Hence why it’s hanging on my wall of awesomeness.

    Ad by the way, the picture of the viddler crew rockin’ the viddler t-shirts is online:

    The idiot who took the pictures with Derek’s camera didn’t check any of the settings, so it took me and heyitsRachel like twenty minutes to photoshop this pic so the colors didn’t totally suck.

    Are we contacts on flickr yet?

    Oh, yeah. We are.

    I bet a 4 year old would have been able to show all the adults how to work those things in 30 seconds. But could he then go to the casino? I think not! Take that toddlers! :-P

    I am sure all those people really appreciated you throwing that plane at them – not! I know it would have hacked me off a bit :)

    And by the way what on earth is all that stuff around your waste?
