Toys “R” Us Tech

I was in a Toys “R” Us yesterday and spotted some cool tech that, until now (at least as far as I’m aware), was only available in Europe. I found a digital camera, a camcorder, an Mp3 player, night-vision binoculars, and a helmet camera. Check out the vid below for full coverage.

Johnson Arms Sponsors HvZ Reloaded

For those of you who don’t know who Johnson Arms is, prepare for a lesson in The Art of Awesome. Brian Johnson is the owner and operator of Johnson Arms, a specialty aftermarket shop for Nerf (and other brands) blasters. Brian is VERY capable of taking an average blaster and completely tricking it out into a one-of-a-kind piece of art. And they aren’t just for show; What Brian produces is fully functional and is meant for battle. I’ll make a post following this one showing a few of his latest achievements, but this post focuses on what he’s whipped up for me. I think Brian threw in some gold dust, eagle feathers, some tech out of a James Bond movie, and a whooooole lotta talent into a cauldron (probably made from crystals from Superman’s Ice Fortress) to make me this; a custom Paladin Scope. Equipped with an extra knob to give it a sniper scope feel and an internal blue glow to scare the heck out of my opponents, this bad boy will be sitting atop my blaster for the entire HvZ Reloaded series. It isn’t 100% finished as of yet, but here ya’ go, bon appetit.

You can contact Johnson Arms about making your own custom blaster by emailing him at JohnsonArms76@gmail.com.

ShiningFoam Launches

Hey guys! So in case you didn’t know, I’ve been doing a lot of stuff in the background for the past month when I’ve had the chance, and I’ve just launched my new YouTube channel, ShiningFoam. The reason I made it is because I am now a product tester for NERF. I’ve already gotten my first package and am busily editing unboxings now. I have TONS of footage to sort through, but for now, I have five videos on the new channel. Here’s the Nerf Package Unboxing one. Hope you like it!

By the way, being a new channel it is still REALLY small, no matter how good the videos are. Help me grow! And if you like what you see, subscribe to keep in the loop. 😉

Battle of the Ads Winner Unveiled

Nerf announced the Grand Prize Winner for the latest Battle of the Ads campaign. Jude Pedoh (sorry if I’m misspelling that) landed the victory with his video “Hey Dude!”. The short shows that Nerf is for everyone, not just one sect of people or another; It’s also very well edited, and I can definitely see why the video got top spot. Congratulations Jude. 🙂

Also, the rules said that I wasn’t allowed to publicize them until after the contest was over, but here is the rough draft and final version of my submission, “Time for Battle”. Hope you enjoy them; tell me what you think!

Mammalogy: Consumer of LIVES!! o_O

Hello everyone! I want to thank you all for the continued support over the last month or so, and also let you know what’s been going on from my side of the computer! So here’s the deal… My life, mammalogy ate it. Yep, the one class alone requires me to read hundreds of pages of text booky goodnes every week, along with two exams per week. Add on economics, wildlife, technical (fancy science stuff) writing, public speaking (where I actually pretend I’m making a YouTube video when I’m standing up talking to everyone ^_^), research papers, and literal all-weekend-long lab projects, I have next to no time to run my sites! D’:

HOWEVER! My 22nd birthday is coming up this tuesday, and I think I may just be getting a software upgrade for video-making. I have taken a TON of footage when I’ve had the time, but I’ve been waiting to publish it until after my birthday, just to see what happens.

Also, I won’t unveil it just yet but I’m working on -another- new YouTube Channel, one where none of the early videos suck!

So that’s it with me guys, how have YOU been? 🙂
