Skiing at Anthony Lakes on New Year’s Eve

Yes. That is a video of me skiing down Trouble Creek on New Year's Eve at Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort.

Happy New Year, everyone. Below are some scenic panoramas that my daughter Rachel and I shot at Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort and stitched together in Photoshop.

Unbelievably clear goldfish tank

This goldfish tank is filled and surrounded by my late mother's knick-knacks, and sits upon her credenza from my childhood home in Baker City where it catches the early morning sunlight. It also has an RGB LED light on top so looks spectacular at night.

When you sit and watch the fish in this tank, the combination of sun rays and seeing outdoors right through the tank make it seem like the fish are just floating in air.

When I first moved this tank to the window, it would bloom algae within three days of a good cleaning, and the glass would be impossible to see-through. When I switched to a Marineland C-220 whisper-silent canister filter, the algae blooms stopped and the water became very clear. When I added the (kind of noisy) air bubbler, within three days the water was crystal clear, and has stayed that way ever since. Even the growth on the ceramic pig has stopped, and that used to turn completely green.

It took many months to get this healthy ecosystem running smoothly. Time will tell if this new system can maintain the clarity.

Tippy + Topple Turtle Livestream Video

Highlight of yesterday's Livestream of the brand-new turtle habitat in Miles' room. That is a piece of turtle food that Tippy is chasing around in the current from the cascading water filter. At :50, Topple does his thing, and dives in for a little snack.

The Livestream is long over, so here it is on YouTube.

Stephen Colbert Freedom Eagle Fist Bump

Freedom Bump

Stephen Colbert fist bumps Freedom the Eagle. An outtake from Wonderful Pistachios Super Bowl commercial that was turned into a GIF by a fan and is now moving to the top of the charts on Imgur and Reddit. Take a moment to go on Imgur and VOTE IT UP!

The GIF was made from my behind-the-scenes content that we posted just before the Super Bowl. I don't know what is more adorable. The eagle, or Stephen Colbert's reaction.

Moontoast Social Ads

moontoast-screenshot

Moontoast Social Ads - like this one I created for Kia Sorento - show up in the Facebook timeline or Twitter feeds. Is this the future of social advertisement? Supposedly function in iOS as well, but I have yet to see that work. This unit plays the new "Where do babies come from?" Super Bowls spot.
