Something that would be awesome

Recently, I’ve been getting into Revision3 shows. It started when a friend showed me an episode of Tekzilla. I hadn’t realized how much I had missed Patrick Norton. He seems a little haggard now. But I will still remember the younger, happier version, back in the old TechTV days.

From wikipedia to your eyes, heres Patrick Norton

After I had seen a couple episodes of Tekzilla, I moved onto Scam School. Scam School features Brian Brushwood, a man with impossible hair and awesome talent. In his show, he demonstrates crafty tricks to impress your friends, or girls, or random people, or whatever. They are pretty bitchin’. Though quite a few feature the use of a cigarette, something I don’t normally carry on my person. Still, the show is cool and the episodes are short (about 5 min). Perfect for those who want to learn a neat trick and pass time until their next class.

How he gets his hair to do that? I dont want to know.

I’m getting to the point, so bare with me. After I had finished with Scam School, I decided I should try downloading the HD content they offer for most (maybe all?) of their shows. But I needed another show! So, looking through the list, who do I see? None other than Kevin Rose, hosting a show called DiggNation. The show is co-hosted by Alex Albrecht, who grew on me faster than I care to admit. DiggNation is ostensibly a show about “top social bookmarking news stories.” However, the resulting show is more a window into the lives of the two hosts than anything. Even so, it still makes for a compelling show.

Ok, the point. DiggNation is holding a ‘contest’, though I say it’s a sweepstakes, where they will host the show in one lucky winner’s home. I want to win. Allow me to enumerate a list for you (in no perticular order):

  1. I’ve never won a contest/sweepstakes before.
  2. I think it would be badass to meet Keven, Alex, “Hippy Glen”, and the rest of the crew.
  3. See if my girlfriend will make good on her promise to punch Alex if uses the word ‘Epic’ again.

Anyway, I’m not going to buy a domin from GoDaddy just to get more chances, but I would like my name to be drawn.

That’s all I have to say about that. Good night!
