Instagram Videos – How to Turn Off Auto-Play

By Thursday, June 20, 2013 0 Permalink 0

I have a few pet peeves when it comes to these new micro video apps, but that's for another day. Since Instagram announced their new video feature today, the social sphere has been turning Instagram feeds everywhere into strictly video feeds. My feed is literally all video, which start obnoxiously playing as I quickly scroll through my feed. While by default the Instagram videos have the auto-play option enabled, they built in the ability to turn off auto-play!!! Wasn't that nice of them? I was happy when they said the videos wouldn't loop, but this will keep my feed pretty clean, which is how I like it! Turning ...

Stefan’s Winning Drum Solo

By Sunday, April 14, 2013 0 Permalink 0

Tonight I was showing Jon some old YouTube videos and realized that he has never seen the video of Stefan winning the talent show that lead to him joining the band, Tickle Me Pink. He was in High School and played an almost 4 minute drum solo. The crowd *loved* it! He won the whole talent show, beating Sean Kennedy (lead singer of Tickle Me Pink). This talent show is what lead to the formation of Tickle Me Pink. Don't you love it? I know I do. Kind of fitting as Sean is getting married this week to his lovely bride, Sara. Now, here's a newer video of ...

Fun Music Video – Fierce Bad Rabbit’s Bad Day

By Wednesday, September 26, 2012 0 Permalink 0

Hopefully you aren't having a bad day or week, but if you are, this video will certainly brighten your day! Fierce Bad Rabbit have put together such an amazing video that will surely put a smile on your face. While on tour a few years ago, they stopped a sushi restaurant that has one of those conveyor belts that goes around the restaurant full of sushi. Their friend and photographer was with them and thought it would be fun to see what would happen if he put his camera on the belt and shot a video. This was the result: Wasn't it perfect? I love watching the reactions ...

Social Queen

No, I am not talking about myself here. Aimee shared this video with me early, and I cannot get over how creative it is, and how I relate to it (with the social networks at least). I haven't really paid attention to the movie/trailer for Mirror Mirror at all, but this video definite piques my interest! Plus, this video showcases my exact frustrations with Skype! (Stupid Snow White, I mean spammers). Does this make you want to see Mirror Mirror?

There are only a few days left to go vote for the video Hot Wild Girls in the Dorito's Crash the Superbowl campaign! This video was created by Denver's own Brad Scott (who has done work with Tickle Me Pink, which is how I met him).

Let's show the world what great talent we have here in Denver!

Company of Thieves Cover Tom Petty

Seriously, to all of you that were not at this show last week at the Marquis Theatre (and this is directed to just about everyone I know because there were NOT enough people there), you missed a fantastic show! Opening for Company of Thieves was Popcult (seriously awesome local band), but of course COT stole the show. Genevieve Schatz is an amazing performer who captivates the audience the moment she got on stage in her sparkling dress. Not only does she know how to dance, but her voice is incredible. Don't believe me? Watch the video below, where she covers Tom Petty's "I Won't Back Down:" And Oscar ...
