I thought this lovely family portrait needed framed.

My favorite? The KMC 1 (second from the top), in blue. I listen to that little guy all the time. Not even remotely kidding.

I have a house guest for the next four months. Long story. No one told me he wasn't housebroke. Lesson learned.
Help me.

Looking Up

You know when the snow falls at at first and it's kinda wet and fluffy and fun then all of a sudden you get a polar vortex that plummets the air into sub zero temperatures and that same snow turns into this super dry powdery and crunchy form of torture as your boots step though it? Yeah, it actually hurts my teeth when it makes that horrible sound. But I could be alone there.

I got tired of looking at the snow, so here's one looking up.

Hoosier natives and sister act Lily & Madeleine played WTTS Sun King Studio 92 Powered by Klipsch Audio (which always exhausts me to say) yesterday, and I was fortunate enough to listen in and take some photos. Unbelievably impressive stuff.

Here is the video that went viral and launched them into the spotlight. Keep an eye out for these two!

Yeah, We're Still Old School

We may be releasing little wireless speakers in a rainbow of colors, but no one can accuse us losing our old-school roots. Not only do we still make the Heritage line with no intent on stopping, we also got Lynyrd Skynyrd to rock the house for us at CES. That's how we roll.

Thank you Johnny Van Zant for the love! And for the curious, this is my all-time favorite Skynyrd song.

I love snow. When it doesn't stick around too long.

It's mostly gone now, but it was fun while it lasted. I don't know the lady in the picture, but we exchanged some cliched weather-words as we passed each other on this otherwise completely silent day.
We got about 8 more inches on top of this before it was over. I watched the rest through my front window.

Music Monday: A Movie Soundtrack

On my 3 week hiatus from the office (mostly unplanned), I struggled to keep myself occupied. Translation: from going crazy. Taking photos outside typically does a good job keeping my brain focused, but in sub-zero temperatures I had to be a little smarter than that. So what did I do? I saw a bunch of movies (all very good, incidentally): 12 Years A Slave, American Hustle, Hunger Games 2, Prisoners, somethingI'veforgottenandwillthinkofinaminute... But the one I want to really talk about is the surprisingly awesome The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

Ben Stiller? Yeah, he's funny. Kristen Wig? Yeah, Bridesmaids was hilarious. Rated PG? Sounds like a decent movie to take Steven to. I wasn't expecting much. I mean, really, what truly excellent movies are rated PG these days, unless they're made by Pixar? We saw it on a whim, after pigging out at Steak n' Shake. I'm not much of a planner.

But oh boy, what a treat it was. I found myself crying at the end, inspired on so many different levels and completely in love with Walter. And Iceland. And soccer. And photography (all over again). And most surprisingly of all, Sean Penn.

Is it a perfect movie? Nah. But it's incredibly beautiful, inspiring, sentimental, and all played out over a kickass soundtrack. David Bowie's Space Oddity is a standout, featured prominently and in a pivotal scene. Bonus.

Saving Mr. Banks! I knew I'd remember the one I'd forgotten. Also delightful.

Our booth is getting a lot of attention at CES, I hear (since I'm not actually there). And it's no wonder!!
