DoodleJump is a really addicting iPhone game where you are this little alien, and you are trying to see how high you can get on the platforms. There are also other monsters, UFOs and other bad guys / black holes trying to kill you.

Mucca Pazza

Mucca Pazza at Festival International

On Sunday I got a chance to go down to Festival International de Louisiane in Downtown Lafayette. We started off listening to a couple of African bands.

After checking out these bands, we got some food to eat, and my wife wanted a Snow Cone, so we were headed down Jefferson Street, and we stumbled across Mucca Pazza, a circus-punk marching band from Chicago.

It seems like every year that I go to Festival International, I find one band that really blows me away. A few years ago it was Beat the Donkey. This year it’s Mucca Pazza.

As we were walking to see what this street performance was all about, I noticed that there were a few members of the band that had megaphones attached to a helmet, which really intrigued me. There is a Violinist, an Accordion player, and other instruments that needed to be amplified, and this was their solution.

If you want to find out more about Mucca Pazza, check out their Website, Twitter, and FaceBook page.

If you like them as much as I do, then head on over to iTunes or Amazon and download their album.

I found this great documentary on Viddler featuring @DJSteen and @heyitsRachel talking about Twitter!

It starts off with when it was just a bunch of geeks; then to when aplusk joined; and finally to when all of the spammers came out and had to get blocked and reported. Enjoy!

Jolie’s Bistro – Lafayette, LA

April 20, 2010

My wife and I celebrated our 4th year of being Happily Married on April 15th. We were married in Crowley, LA on April 15, 2006 at the Levy Park. On Friday April 16th, we went out to Jolie’s Bistro [twitter] and ate some AMAZING FOOD!

I know that Jolie’s Bistro was on Twitter, so I sent them a tweet to let us know that we were coming, and they sat us in a nice quiet spot in the restaurant.

I liked this pic better, what do u guys think? #anniversary The happy couple on our anniversary dinner! How freaking cute?!?!?

First we ordered the Oysters Three Ways, which consisted of Oysters Rockefeller, Oysters Bienville, and Oysters Jolie.

The oysters three way at @joliesbistro is great! I like the one all the way to the right best!! Sorry @abiaugello, no BBQ shrimp tonight :(

Then we ordered our entrees. Krista got the Grilled Mahi with a Corngrit Cake with a Corn and Black Bean Salsa! I got the Rosemary Grilled Porkchop.

The mahi at @joliesbistro was AMAZING!!! Best dish I've ad there so far! I liked my Rosemary grilled porkchop, and it was delish! Wife's mahi was better though! I still ate it all none-the-less!

Both dishes were AMAZING, but I must say that I enjoyed my wife’s Mahi dish better.

Then to our surprise, our waitress, Bailey, brought us a complimentary Creme Broulee for our Anniversary. We were really surprised, and it also tasted AMAZING!!

...and @joliesbistro suprised with a happy anniversary creme broulee!! It was nom nom nom!! Thanks for a great anniversary dinner!!!

If you are in the Lafayette, LA area, I highly recommend that you give Jolie’s Bistro a taste! If you don’t like Oysters, then Abi Augello” suggests the BBQ Shrimp.

Ohh… and don’t forget to Follow Jolie’s Bistro on Twitter, especially if you are planning on getting a bottle wine!

Thank you everyone for wishing my wife and I a Happy Anniversary. Here is my vlog from our anniversary! The 4th year traditional anniversary gift is fruits and flowers!

Cool Pano Pics

April 16, 2010

I took these cool panoramic pics last week, thought that I would share them with you guys. I really like the way that they came out. These pics were taken and edited all directly on my iPhone!

This first one is of my house on a beautiful day outside!

A cool pano I took of my house!

This second one was taken at a Comedy Show out on by Ricky Briggs at the AOC building.

A pano from the Memory Lapse Comedy Show last weekend!

I use 2 specific apps to create such awesomeness. The first one is called Autostitch, where you take a bunch of pics that overlap, and the app stitches them together.

After the stitching process has finished. I launch Photoshop Mobile on my iPhone and do all of my editing, and save it to my camera roll from there!
