Its been a while since I’ve posted a blog.  I’ve been quite busy with many different things.  I’ve been working with my company (Quicksilver Software) to get our comic book app Longbox out finally (http://longboxdigital.com).  I’ve also been working with some old classmates from college on some game projects outside of work in my spare time.  So, sufficed to say, I’ve been a little busy.

I wanted to post an update and also ask that you vote for me as I have entered Sony’s open casting competition to be a contestant on Season 2 of “The Tester,” Sony’s PSN show that follows a group of gamers that are in competition to become a Sony Quality Assurance tester at SCEA San Diego.

I submitted an entry for myself because I thought it could be a lot of fun and I would like to see what can come of it.  So here is a link to my “audition” video.  Following the video there will be a link to my profile.  If you could, please vote for me, and as always, thanks for reading!

A great man died today.  Captain Lou Albano, otherwise known as Mario from the Mario Bros. Super Show, passed away this morning at the age of 76.

Born Louis Vincent Albano, Captain Lou began his career as a professional Wrestler and eventually moved into management of several WWF (now WWE) tag teams before retiring from wrestling in ’95.  He moved on to conquer Hollywood with roles in the Wrestling movie “Body Slam,” the hit TV Show “Miami Vice,” and the 1980’s music video “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” by Cyndi Lauper.  The role that I’ve personally known him best for, and the character that will forever remain as a vivid memory of my childhood is none other than Mario from the Mario Bros. Super Show.  I don’t remember much from the early years of my childhood, but I still have vivid memories of this show and what Captain Lou contributed to it.  Looking back on the show is hard because, admittedly, it wasn’t that great of a show.  But, as a kid it was the best.  And I’ll always remember it for that.  So here’s to you Captain Lou.
