2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,900 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 5 years to get that many views.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,600 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

2011 American Pie box break

Opened a box of American Pie, lots of good stuff like:

my hits:

( ^ think I have this one already)

^ McLean looking LEAN (making the ladies swoon back in the 70’s or whatever)

^ /25

^ THATSA THWEE COLER PATCH!

These next two are hilarious, can’t believe Topps actually did this:

^ That’s noted “bloggist” Chris Harris of http://blog.stalegum.com/

I even got a 3D parallel of him!

NICE!

 

Overall I give this box/product 5 out of a possible 5 knife slashes.

 

here’s the video:

2012 Topps GoldRush promo cards set to feature horrific subliminal embeds

What’s that? oh yes, these card mocks have some imagery on them straight from the depths of hell.

Originals from Beckett:

Let’s zoom in on the top right:

What the? It looks like some pissed off demon guy is staring at me!

Lets up the contrast!

Actually that didn’t really help or hurt any, if you don’t see him I’ve created a handy labeled version:

And now the lower left:

Doesn’t really look like a face or anything at first glance, but after staring at it for awhile I was able to determine that it is in fact a collage of hellish faces twisting in agony, HELL SELL!

That’s not even mentioning the weird Beckett logo embed on the lower right, what’s up with that?

Panini Unwrapped Big League videos

Last June (I think) I started talking to THE Tracy Hackler on Twitter and he asked if I’d be willing to film people opening up Panini product at my LCS (Big League) . I agreed and have been making a video compilation every month (just finished the October edition, it’s not up yet though). This is something I probably would have blogged about much earlier than now, but I’ve been busy with school.

 

So here they are, first up is June:

 

Special Gold Standard edition:

 

July edition:

 

August:

 

And September:

 

In addition to the above, I’ve done some video/audio editing and motion graphics for Tracy on a number of his recent videos, I’ll put together a reel of that at some point.
