    Coming to California, eh? Odds are you'll end up somewhere near places I frequent *evil grin*

    Unless, of course, you're moving to San Francisco... I usually avoid SF... and then there's that whole section of the state that's North of SF... may as well be part of Oregon... and then there's Sacramento.... and... okay, maybe I was wrong.

    Here's my thoughts as I watch the video...

    1:10 - HOLY BALLS. New truck is effing awesome. I didn't realize you were shopping for a new vehicle. It. Looks. Good. Your old truck was cool and all, but this new one looks a lot more... dependable. Just make sure the head-bobbing tiger is the first to grace your new truck, okay?

    2:00 - Haha, crowbar. Don't forget the Plunger!

    2:22 - No fear but stressed? That actually makes perfect sense, and I'd probably feel the same. But you're doing the right thing, one step at a time.

    2:45 - A... rapper...? Uh oh.

    2:55 - Represent internet culture? A terrifying concept.

    3:15 - Did you just say--- YOU JUST SAID HUMBLE BUMBLED!! YEAH!! OH MAN I LAUGHED SO HARD!

    3:35 - BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAST!!!

    4:10 - "And my lyrics... don't... smell... uh... *waves around*" L O L ! !

    Overall: Awesome, especially for your going-away, last video in E-town video.



    Time to fly, Lynx. You'll go far.

    I'm glad you guys enjoyed this... I stayed up WAY too late making it and was only going off the hope that people would laugh.

    And Cliff, I agree completely. Not to mention that whole 6 foot 7 thing...

    One day when NINJA moved back home with his mom & dad again he saw that little YO-LANDI from next door had grown some boobs and a nice bum.
    Then NINJA had a baby with YO-LANDI by accident.

    Anyone remember that one time Lynx made a weekly show? It was pretty funny and good times were had by all? Ringing any bells?

    awwwwww man.

    I miss this SO MUCH. You guys have no idea.

    Here's what happened. I was actually shooting something really clever while I was driving across the country. It was a spoof of those Promos for Conan where he was running from New York to Los Angeles for his new show. I was doing the same, and it was really awesome. When I got to LA, I was going to open the first episode of Mind of UPSLynx with that sequence, or tease a new series.

    I shot video in every state I traveled in. When I got to California, in one of the greatest moments of my life, I went down to Newport Beach to watch the sun set over the Pacific. This was just a few days after seeing the Atlantic ocean with my own eyes. I shot the final video of me running by the camera, and that was it. My camera completely failed.

    Remember when I shot that episode of the camera burial? I managed to ressurect the camera about a month later, which is how I was shooting things still. When it died on Newport Beach, CA though, it was dead for good. Nearly eight years of service, that camera finally gave in. It was a poetically beautiful way for it all to end, at the destination of my greatest journey.

    I still have the files, but I haven't gotten a replacement camera yet. The real thing keeping me from doing this show again is the prospects of the new. I want to do a new video series for Icrontic, I just need to decide what.

    Mind of UPSLynx as we know it can't continue. I can't really talk about tech news because of my contractual obligation to AMD (much like how Thrax can no longer write tech news.) But I don't want to do video for news regardless. The best episodes of MIND were when I was doing something outrageous - smashing a computer monitor, a funeral for my camera, spoofing Die Antwoord.

    I'm trying to think of a way to take that concept further. Something like "Hey Ash Whatcha Playing?" or "Two Best Friends Play". I want something original, unique, and enjoyable by all audiences (IC readers and non-readers alike). Once I get that concept, I'm in business. But it's a big deal, and it has to work.

    Man. I miss this.

    I was really looking forward to the filming of Mind of UPSLynx when he lived with me, but HE NEVER DID IT AGAIN.
