The ET was great, as always.

The pre-show had 3 graphics "celebrities" play old vector-based coin-op classics on the big screen. I didn't catch the name of the first guy playing Asteroids or the last guy playing Star Wars. The middle guy was Ken Perlin playing Tempest.

Most of the good clips are not available online, but a few are...


Travelers: Snowball


HP Hands "Paulo Coelho"


En Tus Brazos


Sears Tools "Arboretum"


Burning Safari


U2 and Green Day "The Saints Are Coming"


Happiness Factory


Vigorsol: The Legend




The Itch






ILM showed a clip on how some of the effects in Transformers and Pirates 3 were done. We show this clip on Friday's at noon as part of our "Friends and Family" demo reel. So if you are coming to visit...make sure you can stop by for lunch on Friday.

Pixar closed out the ET with Lifted.

My favorite is Raymond (the Mill is really good), with Traveler's Snowball, Burning Safari and Portal all tying for second place.

Traveler's Snowball is Katamari-tastic!

I agree with your choices...but the one that stood out the most for me was "The Itch."
