element14 Presents The Ben Heck Show. . . and beyond!

I’ve been invited to create content for element14, the community marketing arm of electronics distributor Newark as their long-time “face”, Mr. Benjamin Heckendorn is retiring from his eponymous electronics hacking show. I, along with several other very talented creators, will be producing content under the element14 Presents banner on occasion starting next month!

The best comment on the video, by far.

In addition to my contributions to the new show, I will be producing some behind-the-scenes and other derivative content in addition to my regular production content here and on YouTube, so expect to see more things posted more regularly on all my outlets!

Old National Discount Mall: “Something New” (circa 1992)

Does anyone remember going to the Old National Discount Mall down south of Atlanta? We had the Outlets LTD mall behind Town Center in Kennesaw when I was a kid (now part of KSU), so a trip to the other side of town was out of the question! I do remember these commercials in heavy rotation back in the day, though!
