Oh you will never hear me on the air, that would take me away from my computer and coding. They keep a tight leash around us tech guys, it's too dangerous to let us out in the wild with real people.
I am Stefan, I am the guy behind the scenes that makes sure these sites are showing you the correct information, sending you to the correct pages and contest. I'm a giant ninja, stealthily coding and fixing things. I'm also an avid video game and technology geek and never afraid to let my geek flag fly. I have an extensive knowledge of video games and nerdly things. I have a wonderful wife who understands my obsession with gaming and encourages it. Don't be afraid to ask me about video games, technology, or even horrible life advice. I'll be happy to give all 3!
This little guy just happy, smiling and hopping around in the snow. Oh yeah, did I mention he looks like the younger brother from a Christmas Story?
This has to be the sweetest little thing ever. Old man loses his wife of 75 years and won a contest with his song he wrote. So damn heart warming, that the giant shed a tear.
So, prank shows are pretty lame, with set ups that are too real world based. What would happen if you were walking down a hallway, heard screaming and people running down a corridor. Then BOOM, dinosaur out of nowhere! Yeah, if it was a cheesy dinosaur animitronic, that was be lame and not a good prank. But, what if, and stay with me now, it was amazingly realistic model of a raptor, and it came charging after you. Yeah, I'm with you, I'd need new underpants too.
The thunderous roar, the earth shaking violently, is the world coming to an end? No, it's just a big ole truck doing it's big ole thing. Any fan of Monster Trucks know Rammunition and it's brother Raminator. We were delighted by driver Mat Dishman, who took the beast of a truck around the parking lot of LIA Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM in Schenectady. The two cars, had no chance of survival as they sat in the rain, awaiting their sweet release.
It came swiftly, loudly, and violently. I was able to snap a few pics of the before and after. I even was able to get a video of the monster getting airborne from charging full speed, and was lucky enough to capture it slow motion, so you could get every minute detail of the chaos.
I went to the vending machine and the geek in me laughed when I noticed something was missing.
A little bribery gets you everyhwere.
Well, maybe not.
Do you ever wish you could say that? And if can say that, how often do you actually get to do it? There is a gentleman in the offices near us who drives this into work on really nice days.

I don't care what people do with their money, but living in a place where it rains a lot and has the worst roads ever. Driving a Ferrari 360 Spider around with it's power, real wheel drive, and tendency to get away from less experienced drivers, seems like a bad idea.
This is coming from a gear head too, but, a rough ride that wants to be on a track is not home here in upstate NY. Even with the 360 being a "poor man's" Ferrari (generally the older 00 or 01 models are under 80 grand), I wouldn't want to ride around nasty roads and give my already troublesome back something else to get angry about.
What are you thoughts on this, would you drive a track car, every nice day, if it means putting yourself through pot holed and cracked roads where you'll feel every bit of it?
So did anyone else catch this on MSNBC. Martin Bashir had this wonderful info graphic of the President's bus tour.
Hell all this time, I thought Buffalo and Rochester were a long drive to the west, who knew it was actually about 30 minutes north?

He has since apologized for the goof up:
Thank you viewers (and Buffalo bloodline @lukerussert) for pointing out our erroneous PA/NY map...an honest geographic mistake...— Martin Bashir (@BashirLive) August 14, 2013
So, everyone around the office, across all sister stations here in Albany, got together to do this gem. I wouldn't post this just to promote it, I'm posting this because I'm in it! Haha! Take that internet! You'll see a few different faces that you might recognize in there too.
