Will it Blend?

Okay, most of you who know me personally know I’m ridiculously happy at my new job. I’m currently redesigning blendtec.com, and little else could fuzzify my geeky little heart like this does.

But many of you, particularly my girl friends, have never heard of “Will It Blend” or Blendtec. And when I say “Oh! It’s so cool! They have these super tough blenders that blend stuff, like magnets and silly putty and iPhones!” you look at me like I’m from another planet.

So here are a few links to fill you in. 🙂

Blendtec on Modern Marvels: Super awesome behind-the scenes stuff, and a great overview, too.

Total Blender on Time Warp: Blending stuff is even cooler when it’s filmed at 10,000 frames per second and then played back in high definition slow mo! On this one they blend strawberries, gum balls, a video camera, and butane lighters. Parental discretion advised if your kid is a pyro. Otherwise, be sure to watch it in HD!

Bad guys, good guy, and a blender: A notoriously tough guy gets in the blender with the bad guys. Who will win? Blendtec had to remove this after the tough guy (whose name I dare not mention since I work for BT now, but you can find one of his many fan sites here) sent a cease and desist. But several youtube users had re-posted the original video, including this one. Too funny.

And of course we have Will It Blend? — a huge video collection of Tom Dickson blending stuff. And last but not least, blendtec.com — which is going to look awesome before the summer’s through.

And the best part of all of it? They Gave Me A Blender! Anyone up for smoothies? 😀


Loved this…

Sure, there’s a fine line between flattery and validation, but real validation does feel nice, doesn’t it?

Ethan’s Website

My son wanted a blog. I thought it’d be better for him if he learned how to code things out on his own, so he’s starting with basic html and a little CSS, and is using it to showcase his collection of snowflakes and favorite videos. He’s home sick today and wanted me to link to him, so I’m doing it. Have some link love, Ethan! His site is at ethan.novapages.com.

Interactive Star Chart

I ran across Astro Viewer when I was trying to google my family’s constellations. Of course it was quite handy in planning our constellations for the star ceiling, but I think it’s pretty cool to play with too, particularly when you use the buttons to “fast forward” and watch how the sky changes.
