Incredible Stop Motion Animation

Posted: 08/12/2011 by goodie in news

During lunch today I heard of a new short film that is the largest stop motion animation film ever produced. It is a very cool movie and the sand art is just amazing. BTW it was shot fully with a Nokia cell phone. I recommend you watch the making of the movie first and then watch the actual movie. A ton of work went into producing just a few short minutes that the movie consists of.

For your viewing pleasure……the movie…………GULP.

Kern Valley

Posted: 08/12/2011 by goodie in Kern River

I spent two days in Bakersfield this week making sales calls. On Wednesday night I drove half way up the Kern Valley and chilled by the river. I can’t wait to return to the area in September for our end of the summer Kern camping trip. (Let me know if you wanna go…..the more people the better)

I also was in downt0wn LA this week where I happened upon a bar that stole my name.

See you this weekend……waves should be good!

Downtown LA.

The Big Island of Hawaii

Posted: 08/09/2011 by goodie in travel, Uncategorized, Vacation

Last week I was out of town enjoying vacation on the Big Island. We stayed in downtown Kona but pretty much toured around the entire island. We had an incredible time checking out beaches, waterfalls and other highlights of the island. I was lucky enough to snorkel with wild dolphins and Annika and I also got kicked out of the water because of a recent shark sighting. Here are some pictures of our adventures.

Sorry, it has been awhile since my last post……I have been on vacation in Kona! (Pics to be posted soon)

I returned to HQ last night and Seashore Dr. was packed full of news trucks.

Turns out, some kid dug a deep tunnel in the sand and it collapsed on him. He was stuck over a half hour and hundreds of people assisted in digging him out.  The kid is alive and well today.

Here is the video

search engine optimization

Posted: 07/24/2011 by goodiegoodiegoodieIT in news

we here at goodiegoodiegoodie have been working diligently to get more people to see the goodness that is goodiegoodiegoodie. in doing so we have added a streaming beachcam, a live surf report and even an auto-updating facebook page for all you fb addicts. the last piece of the puzzle is getting goodiegoodiegoodie to the top of the search stats so that everyone around the world can hear about the things that go on in goodie’s head. while working on this challenging project the IT department came across some interesting things, but this is the hands down favorite.

On the eve of Carmageddon and the opening day of the Orange County Fair, I have to ask myself what I’m gonna do? The fair may be in my future but no way am I going anywhere near that 405.

Is this a sign? A dark cloud and full moon over Newport........tonight 7/14
