Just For Fun

The Next Foundry Video

It’s so tantalizing close that I can barely stand it… Imagine hairy legs with high heels, an epic fight at the grocery store parking lot and lots and lots of cheese dip.  And this is only the beginning.  See you in a couple of weeks.

Techstars Network Meet Xtranormal

Today, it was announced that Techstars has raised a fund to provide $100,000 to each of its startups.  This is awesome news for both participants in the program as well as the Techstars Network, in general. As a complete non sequitur, I had a lot of fun last year making an Xtranormal Video that portrayed…

Even Conan O’Brien Loves Our Portfolio Company Brightleaf

I thought I had seen about every possible way that a startup could market itself.  Until now.  Ladies and Gentlemen, I now present you Brightleaf’s marketing “materials” for their launch at LegalTech in New York this week.  (In all seriousness, they are doing a great job with their automated document platform and more instructive videos…

Perhaps the Most Unexplainable Video of All Time

The story surrounds Winery Peak, a fictitious winery in Napa that unfortunately finds several…

I’m With Coco (and why Reggie Watts will be very famous)

I have been in Boston this weekend hanging out with friends following a few days of board meetings, Techstars demo night (which rocked) and a day visiting with our investors.  I figured that I’d tack on a long weekend and explore a town that I visit often, but rarely go out and “play” in.  Yesterday…

The Worst Song Ever (or why Notre Dame stinks)

Alright, I know I’m going to get flamed on this one, but as a Michigan Wolverine, I can’t resist.  Today, a friend of mine sent me the video below entitled “We are Notre Dame.”  It’s the worst song that I’ve heard.  Period.  The video isn’t any better and the fact the school endorsed it by…
