Just about everyone gets their 5 minutes of fame, and while going through some old files on the computer I found some pictures and videos of mine that I decided to share.

In 2003 I founded the team "Bevo Burger" at the Redbull Flugtag contest in Austin TX.

We built a 15' tall, 25' long replica of the University of Texas' mascot, Bevo, de-horned it, and rode it off of a 30' tall runway into Austin's Town Lake in front of a crown of 40,000+ booing people throwing beer bottles and the like at us. It was an incredible experience I made multiple local TV and radio appearances and interviews, and clips were shown on Good Morning America and Sports Center.

I will try and post a better video later with interviews, clips, and the whole "flight" if anyone wants it, but there is a brief clip at about 16 seconds in embeded in this video:

So everyone share your moment in the spotlight, pictures and video a must!

I appear for about 5 seconds on the 10th Anniversary edition of The Big Lebowski. It is in the extras disk where they are talking about Lebowskifest they show some video of me and a buddy in the Seattle one from a couple years ago.

Nothing huge but it was pretty cool to see myself there.

I have two paintings published in a book of Beatles based art. I have a copy, my daughter has the other one!

Don't know about fame but I was a quad bike stunt rider in a film.
It didn't have a title at the time so I can't find a clip.
It had a cast and crew of over 600 on the days I was there.

I've been on TV a bunch of times. Some of you have probably seen me and don't know it. No video that I'm aware of, other than a few tapes my wife did when it was a big deal. Now she doesn't even tune in.

Let's see, I've worked on in countless movies and TV shows, had my artwork featured on Coast To Coast AM, been a published photographer, published author, have a fungus named after me, I'm a respected figure in the hot sauce industry, ummm....there's more but I'd have to really think about it for a while.... OH ya! I've worked on alot of video games and am credited in them....

I took my 15 minutes and ran with it, lol.
