Tasting with Tom & Tom: Naked Grape Shiraz vs Naked Grape Cabernet Sauvignon

Recently my roommate (Tom) and I (Tom), have been interested in becoming knowledged in the ways of wine. To do this we’ve decided to taste as much as we can…. also because it’s F*ing delicious. Today’s selections come from the Naked Grape collection, A Shiraz and a Cabernet Sauvignon.

Cooking with Tronne: TOAST!

It only took a month, but the next Cooking With Tronne is now available on Youtube!

Special thanks goes out to Ian Coombs for suggesting “You should cook toast next”!


What else is new… Hmmm….

I’ve been trying to teach myself some more Adobe After Effects and its starting to pay off! You might notice the (sloppily) animated toast man in this episode, as well as the cool “Woosh!” scene change effects.

I’ve been paying a lot of attention to freddiew on youtube. He does the best special effects on all of youtube in my opinion, and his second account, freddiew2 , has some awesome behind the scenes videos. If you haven’t checked him out before, I suggest you do. I’m learning a lot of cool things from watching his stuff!

AND one more thing:

I made a new HD version of the MissilePuppy production logo to go with our videos from now on. Seeing as we now have an HD camera, this makes a lot more sense. The only real difference is the resolution, the object proportions, and the stars. What do you think? I think it’s a nice improvement.

Cooking With Tronne: Ice Cubes

Whhhhh-hhhoooooooo! I am SUPER EXCITED! I finally forked over the cash for an HD camcorder!

I made sure to get a nice one too! Now I may not be able to eat for a couple of weeks, but I am able to bring you this:

For a time I was the only IT guy, just me and no one else. So here is a list of things you may or may not notice depending on the stress levels if you are a current IT guy, or see your IT guy doing…

On a More Serious Note…

First off you may have noticed a few changes around the site. Chandler’s gone and changed the theme and layout on me again, but it does look a bit better, so I’ll forgive him this time. Also we’ve let a few more people into our fold as contributing writers, so hopefully we’ll see some interesting new posts and fresh ideas from them!

And yes, there is a very specific reason why I haven’t written a single blog post in over a month (trust me, I’ve been thinking up millions).

I was involved in a car accident, and if you want the details, read on my friend…
