"The other is a T1, delivered via microwaves from the Empire State Building. That's right, our Internet is beamed to a weird little dish on our roof from a weird little dish on the Empire State Building's roof."
"Our living room is a Nintendo museum. It has every Nintendo console ever released, including Famicom and Super Famicom, which were only released in Japan."
"We also have a Game Boy, and a Game Boy Printer, and a Game Boy Camera, and everything else. Except the robot. If you have the robot, give it to us."
"The camera at the Apartm.net is less interesting than the flash. The flash for the camera is three Alien Bees strobes totaling 1280 watts of power."
"We normally use them on a 9-foot seamless backdrop mounted on Manfrotto Autopoles in the office. Our friends come over to get their pictures taken."

"We don't really consider it a party until it's full of people we've never met," says Sparling.
