YouTube: Blue Nessie Microphone First Look, Unboxing & Snowball Comparison
In this video I unbox my new Blue Nessie with came out today. I review all the fine details of the microphone: looks, build quality and features. While I don't get a chance to plug it in and check the audio I hope to do that in a future video. So far the Nessie seems like a fine update for my 5 year old Blue Snowball.

YouTube: "Mikey" by Chris Younkin with Animation by Jim Younkin
Music Copyright © 2004 Chris Younkin. Animation by Jim Younkin.
My brother Chris is an amazing musician. In 2004 we both happened to be at my mother's house in East Wenatchee.
I had my 12" PowerBook and he had his acoustic guitar. We decided to record something. This is the result.
The distortion you hear on the guitar solo near the end was added in GarageBand. The backing vocals were recorded by Chris.
The animation was created live by Jim in Expression 3 while he recorded this video in XSplit. (Yes I added the speed limit sign in way too early.)

Last year I decided to support the action RPG Path of Exile by Grinding Gear Games. During pre-open beta I paid $100 for a "Silver Supporter Pack". This video is my unboxing of the contents of the supporter pack.
The package included a letter from Chris Wilson, a Path of Exile Install DVD, soundtrack CD and a huge poster of the world map. I'm happy to have supported PoE during pre-open beta (plus I now have lots of cool PoE stuff!). Keep up the good work GGG!

YouTube: Logitech G400 (MX518) Full Disassembly & Reassembly (For Repair, Research, Etc)
If your looking to fix or repair your Logitech G400 (or simply want to see someone else disassemble it) than this video is for you. This video is a full disassembly and reassembly of the Logitech G400 (the new version of the MX518).
The reason I did this video is I want to eventually lighten my G400 from the standard 106g down to the same weight as my favorite mouse the Razer Diamondback which weighs in at 91g.
I also talk about how I fixed my Razer Diamondback's scroll wheel problem as well as how I was able to lighten my E-Blue (E-3lue) Cobra Junior by 19g so it ended up at a very light 76g.
While I didn't find any easy ways to lighten the mouse (mostly due to it being built like a tank) I did get some ideas on ways I could lighten it as well as a really good look at how the mouse was built.
If you ever wanted to see any of the parts inside this legendary mouse it is very likely it is in this video some where.

YouTube: E-Blue Cobra Junior (Razer Diamondback Clone) Unboxing & Review E-3lue
Nothing feels exactly like the classic Razer Diamondback but the Cobra Junior is damn close. Overall the E-3lue Cobra Junior has almost exactly the same feel as my Razer Diamondback. I bought this E-3lue Cobra Junior on eBay for $12 with free shipping.
From what I could gather from teh packaging and reading online when considering purchasing the Cobra Junior it seems to have a button that switches the DPI between 400/800/1600. The Razer Diamondback runs at 1600 and so far the tracking seems very similar when I (hopefully) have the Cobra Junior at 1600 DPI.
How does the shape of the Razer Diamondback it was replacing? Surprisingly close. I was amazed at how close this mouse feels to my Razer Diamondback. The Diamonback is was clearly the "inspiration" for the Cobra Junior.
In this unboxing I was only able to cover the external feel of the mouse. I haven't used the mouse yet so I have no information on how well it actually will hold up. I will likely do another video on how it is in use if I end up using it a lot.
If you want to buy a Cobra Junior, the eBay auction I found was entitled "E-Blue Cobra 1600DPI Adjustable 6 Buttons USB Wired Optical Gaming Mouse Mice PC" by the seller "newlaunch".
You can also find it on Amazon by searching for "E-Blue Cobra Junior". The Amazon price at the time of this video was around $13 but you also have to pay shipping.
Both mice weighed almost exactly the same on my kitchen scale right around 91g.
