I was walking by this booth and I recognized my friends artwork (Renee) and recognized the company cos we did a contest/promotion together with her last year that went really well! These guys are so cool, so nice and so dedicated to making some of the best computers in the world! We want to partner together!! So excited!

After all these years I’m still glad that Intel attends Siggraph, I think its an important show that I’m glad still exists today.

Me and Kim in southpark!

Me, Chris, Dani and David hanging with our pals!

IMG_2885

Yeah there’s a lot of south park pictures cos they had all these cool scenes and sets where you could take tons of pictures to help them promote the next season of the show. I remember when the first show started, I remember the day I knew what south park was, and it does make me feel old to actually remember it so clearly. It’s a very long running tv series!

IMG_2888

Awesome!

We’re all mad here.
