While attending CES this year for work, I tweeted my adventures, but since I am fundamentally a very boring person in real life, I figured it made sense to tweet my fake adventures too, just to make it interesting to others. Here are my #FakeCES tweets.

I no longer consider myself a full-fledged nerd or a full on geek. At a certain point life just kind of takes over and those things that dominated our perception of ourselves lose some of their traction, as Craig so aptly explained previously. Right now, I tend to refer to myself as a Reformed Geek. Life has staged an intervention for me and forced me into its own 12 step program that has curtailed my dogged determination to be fully immersed in nerdology.

BLOGMASTER 2000: Mr. Ben Kent – filmmaker, programmer, funny person, and genuinely good guy. How are you doing and thanks for being my inaugural interview here on Blogmaster2000.

My main hope with this series of interviews, as we discussed briefly when I reached out to you about participating, is to connect with people I genuinely admire and try to dig in a little bit to get a better idea of what drives them (you) and how you got here from there. So, if you are ready, here we go…

What was your dream job as a kid? How is this different from where you are now?

All of us here at mediaRif and Gangrene Productions would like to thank their friends and clients with this original Christmas song, I’ll Be Home For Christmas (If I Haven’t Blown a Fuse), written by Craig Nybo and performed by Craig Nybo and Larry Nybo (additional background vocals by Curtis Spendlove, Norm Johnson, Brandon Beck, Mike Terrell, and Ben Fuller).

This video was recorded and animated, by Mike Terrell, at mediaRif studios.

Have you noticed on Facebook that not everyone or every page that you are following shows up in your newsfeed? This has become much more pronounced over the last couple of months as FB has pushed through several relatively big platform updates. It becomes especially noticeable if you simultaneously browse your newsfeed on the website and on an aggregator app like Seesmic, or on a mobile app like SocialScope for Blackberry.

In honor of this most esteemed holiday and all that it represents, we would like to share with you this season appropriate music video that we produced one Saturday afternoon in a corner of our office.

It is time once again for Fantasy Leagues all over to have their team drafts. My Fantasy Chess League is halfway through the season and doing decent, even though Scott went on an Anti-Semitic rant and ran off to live in Iceland (seriously, some people are just too method for their own good) – he is in the lead. However, it is draft time for my Fantasy Music Festival league.

Hello my dear friends with connections to Utah.

It is time once again for me to do a quick personal plug for our annual Comedy Short Film Festival (www.gangreneproductions.com & www.facebook.com/gangrenefilmfestival). It is only a little over a week away and I would like to encourage you to attend for a multitude of reasons (several of which I bullet-pointed last year and will now copy and paste and update where necessary).

KAYSVILLE, Utah, August 8 – After seeing the Gangrene Comedy Film Festival put on 11 years of off-the-wall shows, including such antics as luchadore wrestlers, Mini Kiss, break dancing pirates, and tap dancing grannies, it’s no surprise that fans of Gangrene are scratching their heads and wondering what Gangrene will do in 2011.

“We’ve decided to go Bigfoot,” said festival board member, Ben Fuller. “They’re furry, they’re vicious, and they make us laugh. We know our fans will love it. It’s going to be all guttural grunts and chest-pounding.”

When my dad first told me he had hooked me up with a job for the summer at a company called mediaRif, I pictured myself as your typical business woman depicted in movies, going to work in a big office space, dressed in a pinstriped suit, hair tightly wrapped in a bun with a briefcase latched to my side.

This image I had drawn up in my mind totally changed when we first drove up to the office which is an old brick building located right next to the Kaysville Theater in Kaysville, Utah. “There’s the door to your new workplace,” my dad announced amusedly, pointing to an old rickety red door on the back of a building.
