“Power Surge” (Preliminary)

Well, I was going to post a teaser for a new video project I’m working on, but YouTube doesn’t like the music I used, so I’m left without anything interesting to show for my next ambitious endeavour.  If you’ve been to Disney’s ElecTRONica dance party either at California Adventure or Hollywood Studios, you might be familiar with the Power Surge stage show before the official opening of the party.  I’m at present working on recreating a version of the show to enjoy at home.  More details as they come, but for now, please enjoy my other offerings at my YouTube channel!

Hoppy International India Pale Ale Day!

Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

Benjamin Franklin

IPA descends from the earliest pale ales of the 17th century. The term “pale ale” originally denoted an ale which had been brewed from pale malt. The pale ales of the early 18th century were lightly hopped and quite different from later pale ales. By the mid-18th century, pale ale was mostly manufactured with coke-fired malt, which produced less smoking and roasting of barley in the malting process, and hence produced a paler beer. One such variety of beer was October beer, a pale well-hopped brew popular among the landed classes, who brewed it domestically; once brewed it was intended to cellar two years.


Probably one of my favourite holidays, today is the day when we get to celebrate my favourite style of beer:  The India Pale Ale (or IPA, for short).  I’d love to enjoy a nice tall Sweetwater IPA on draught, but, being in California (and well outside of Sweetwater’s distribution network), I’ll have to settle with a nice, tall Stone IPA this evening.  Oh, the sacrifices!  Anyway, hope you got your ticket!

Come have a pint with me!

Faces Lounge: “It’s All About The Love”

Aren’t videos fun?  I’ve been wanting to do a new video production for a while now, and while filming some colourful characters at a little bar my friends and I frequent in Marietta, I decided that this could make a fun subject for a video.  Thanks to Jon and Mary–who lent me the use of their phones after my battery died–I was able to capture not only some good B-roll, but some interviews with a few of the more colourful patrons as well.  Enjoy!
