Tuttle #2 – This Time With Video, and No, We Weren’t in a T-Shirt Shop


What is Tuttle LA? from Francine Kizner on Vimeo.

Tuttle #2 was even better than Tuttle #1. We met again at the Library, and started by meeting in the cozy room on the left that has lots of couches, but we had a special surprise — a video Skype chat with Lloyd Davis (aka the Tuttle mothership, as Geoff said), who is at SXSW this weekend. We were a bit loud when on the call, so one of the annoyed Library patrons suggested we head to the bizarre extra room off to the right, which was empty.

With talked about Austin, Tuttle, London and more (check out the video above).

Our new spot in the side room provided us more seating space and let us talk and move around more, but it was a really bizarre space. There were a few yellow walls, some mismatched paintings, a rack of T-shirts and hoodies (all in primary colors), a massage chair ($1 for 5 minutes) and some paper lanterns.

In addition to all the talk about tech, phones, Twitter, WordPress and SXSW, we also did some video interviews. Geoff’s phone died, so we took all the video on my Macbook Pro.

New Music: ortoPilot and Other Links

As part of my job at Sugarscape, I’ve been finding a YouTube video to post everyday — usually someone doing a cover of a popular song, though sometimes people dancing or performing original songs or parodies. This week, I stumbled across a new singer songwriter, Matt Hutchison, whose sound I really liked, so I though I’d share his video here, too. His band is called ortoPilot, and they’re from Manchester. I wish I could play guitar like him!

Another video to check out is Jared and Matt’s Last Guy on Earth — it’s a short clip about aliens running an earth-based reality dating show where they’ve killed off all the men on the planet except for one guy, but, well… he’s not exactly interested in playing the game. They’re going for most views in the month of may, so check it out.

I also finally posted some photos to my Flickr account. You can check out the rest of the Kew Gardens set from last weekend here.
