High fivin' my way to the LA Times

So last time I interviewed an NBA player for English, baby!, the video turned out great, but a behind-the-scenes disaster drew some hilarious media attention. When I interviewed Sasha Vujacic at the Lakers' practice space last week, it went smoothly, and still managed to garner a mention in the LA Times the next day!

Times scribe Brian Kamenetzky was charmed by the Ebaby! high five, which is how we conclude all our interviews. Here's a video from our trip to the Olympics that ends in a high five montage. Stay tuned for the edited Vujacic interview later this week.

Just Throwing this Out There: The Pistones

I haven't done this for a while, but I was suddenly struck with a good idea for a theme band today.

Some rude boys in Detroit should form a ska band called the Pistones. They could have songs like "Big 3 Skank," "Rudy's on the Dole," and "Laid Off and Pis'ed."

What is English, baby!?

I get asked this a lot, since I post videos from English, baby! here somewhat out of context.

Basically, it's a social network for people learning English outside the US that provides lessons based on American pop culture.

It's not my company (it was founded when I was 16), but it's based in Portland and I do a little bit of everything for it, mostly marketing, videos and writing.

We put together a clip reel to help explain what we are and what we do. Enjoy!
