Morning at Berkeley

I had so much fun yesterday that I thought I'd spend the morning and early afternoon in Berkeley again. I'll talk about the fun in a post later.

Mule at UC Berkeley

I will be invading Berkeley frat houses tomorrow to equip those party animals' iPhones with proper voice modulation ability in time for Halloween. So if you are in Berkeley shoot me an e-mail and I'll see if I can give you a light. I'll even let you choose if you want me to increase your Red or Blue count now that the new Election '08 Special Edition flame is out.

See you there!

The Traveling Light

Hello fellow Smulers. It seems that we have a very ambitious trail blazing Sonic Lighter user out there! Whoever it is they traveled on I-80 across the middle of the USA. It is pretty obvious from the southwest corner of Wyoming to the Chicago area but after that who knows! They may have gone all the way to New York. To commemorate this unique event in Smule history I'm posting a picture of the trail. You too can see this awesome trail being blazed if you check out the Sonic Lighter map and set the time to 3 days.

Keep on Spreading the Light!! Woohoo!!

Sonic Boom Released!

Today was a great day for the Mule! Sonic Boom was finally released over the weekend. Now a person can light more than just another lighter on fire with the Sonic Lighter, they can also light Dynamite!!! Woo hoo! And as for me, this means I have twice as much to do. So join me in my new journey to not only spread the light of the Sonic Lighter, but also spread the explosive fun of Sonic Boom!

Last Day in LA!

Well I have to say I went out with a Hollywood style BANG! On my last day I made it to a few more Apple Stores and had the best time yet! But first I spent some time in Hollywood hanging out with the likes of Batman and Captain Jack Sparrow. A couple of unlikely characters to find on the same block, but it made for some interesting Sonic Mule action. Videos to follow!

In my final Los Angeles moments I went to a fashion show! Christian Audigier, designer of the tatoo inspired Ed Hardy clothing line, was showing off his Spring '09 collection. But here's the fun part folks. Believe it or not, after the show I was standing around Smuling it up and who just about bumps into me? Mr. Audigier himself! I guess Hollywood is the place to see the rich and famous. I snapped a shot with my iPhone, but he was moving fast so it's a bit blurry.

I have to say, my time in LA was great fun, and I believe the Mule made quite an impression on this Star Studded town.

Second Day in LA

Today was even better than the first. Apple Stores really do have great employees! Everyone I talked to was very kind, fun, and extremely helpful. They seemed to really like the Sonic Mule Applications, and I actually met the first employee to already HAVE the Sonic Lighter! It was a magical moment for sure, especially since he said he hadn't ever experienced a light-up. Woohoo! I acquired him into my Sonic Network so he can help keep LA lit up on my map. There is more to do in the land of the Mule. Stay tuned...

First day in LA

Well the first day was a good one. I met some great apple store employees and learned a lot about Los Angeles. For the first day I hit up apple stores in the Northern part of LA in the Simi Valley area. Yes there were some fires in the hills, but I didn't set them don't worry!
Today I will be hanging out in the famous parts of Hollywood and the Los Angeles area! If you have any suggestions on where you think I should go feel free to drop a line! themule[at]smule[dot]com!

The First Mule Tour -- Apple Store Conquest

Hello everyone! It is an exciting time in the life of The Mule. Tomorrow I will be heading off on my first official tour. I am leaving the safety of Silicon Valley and venturing out into new territory.

In order to chronicle my travels, I will keep a tour schedule on the right side of the blog (which I will be adding to as I figure out where I'm going, so keep checking for new dates!), as well as document where I have been and what I have done with my very own google map! A permanent link to the map can be found in the "Stay Updated" section on the right side of the blog. Clicking "Mule Map -- Follow the Mule's Exploits" will take you to my special google map.

My first tour will revolve around getting as many Apple Store employees familiar with the sonic lighter as possible, and hopefully download it for themselves. I already did a trial run in the Bay Area with pretty good success. Now I will be trying my luck in other places. Stay Tuned!!

As always, if I'm going to be in your area feel free to send me an e-mail and let me know where I can find you to give you a light!

Sonic Lighter Used to Ignight the Home Team

Thanks a ton to Andy for sending in this awesome Sonic Lighter moment! While attending a 49ers vs. Patriots game he thought it would help to light a fire under the 49ers to help their feet move a little faster. Unfortunately for Andy the Patriots were the ones who put on the heat and won 30-21. Better luck next time!

Keep on sending in those special moments and I'll post 'em!
Rock on.

Keep smuling everyone!

Golden Gate Bridge Light

A Light-up event at the Golden Gate Bridge.

"A bridge signifies patient stability; therefore, it is sometimes used to represent government or magisterial offices. The bridge may also signify change or the desire for a change"

Does a bridge symbolize change and government at the same time? Quite ironic based on the fact that we are in an election year. Well I'll leave that up to you, but there is something very interesting that happened at this particular light up. I'll let you try and figure out what I'm talking about!

The Mule at Castro Street Fair San Francisco

Yesterday's Castro Street Fair was a total blast. Lots of colorful folks were there to show support for the diversity that makes San Francisco such a wonderful city. There were cake walks by the Diamond Daggers Burlesque troupe, a Sexy Geological Cabaret, lots of Alice in Wonderland insanity, and various other great performances.

One particularly colorful fellow though was Mitch Altman the creator of the TVb-Gone and the Brain Machine (which I am wearing in the picture). Both of these inventions are available in kits or you can find instructions on how to do it yourself.

A special thanks to Max Barnaby and the World of Wonderment for letting me demonstrate the Sonic Lighter in the free vendor zone. I met lots of great people and it seemed like there were plenty of iPhone users who were stricken with amazement at the Sonic Lighters capabilities.

The Mule at Castro Street Fair

I will be at the at the Barnaby's World of Wonderment section of the Castro Street Fair tomorrow (Sunday) in the Sciences tent. If you are around come by and I will give you a light! Hopefully the weather will cooperate. See you there!

Last Day in SF

Originally uploaded by themulewashere
Today was a great day! And what better day to end my official stay in SF on? I met the first ever smule user who already had the app on his phone when he met me! In order to show my enthusiasm I am posting a picture of us here! I also saw a few other friendly people I had run into earlier in the week. I would say that Down Town San Fran was a success!
And as usual, feel free to send in a picture or video of an interesting/exciting light of your own!

Wednesday in the City

Hello Everyone. I spent the day in the Financial District of San Francisco. Now that the big Oracle Convention from last week is over it seems things have returned somewhat back to normal. A little bit lighter crowds today. But I did find one very interesting individual pictured here who seemed to like the Sonic Lighter. He is an investor in Solar Energy (similar business to the Sonic Lighter only the energy is measured in Watts instead of Joules) and taught me all about how solar panels work and the process for their production. It seems like solar is a good way to go. There was a stage set up in the Embarcadero Center Plaza demonstrating some of the new solar technology and had some solar panels on display. The City Tour is part of a west coast tour that will be in Seattle and Portland among other cities.

Video from Critical Mass

Here is a video from last week's Critical Mass. More to Come!

The Mule in SF Financial District

Tuesday the First of October I will once again be in the Financial district of San Francisco on the Smule Tricycle. If you are going to be in the area keep an eye out. The past couple days I have been touring around San Francisco getting people to light up in various famous places such as Lombard Street, Coit Tower, and Fisherman's Warf. If you are going to be in the area shoot me an e-mail and maybe I will be able to give you a light! Alright people keep on passing the flame!
