- A Rainy Day Full Of Summer Albums.
What a better way to kick off rain in LA, than to listen to pop albums (and some good old Americana)? Sherwood – Qu – iTunes I’ve know the Sherwood guys for years, dating back to working on their first full length when they were on Sidecho. They write some ridiculously catchy songs with gorgeous [...]
- A Little Update & Something For The Ears.
So I’ve been a resident of the “Ciudad” of Los Angeles for a whopping 4 weeks now, and I believe this is the first Friday night that I have stayed in. I owe that mostly due to the fact that I have great friends and way more people close enough for a last minute hang [...]
- IE6 Must Die.
I feel like IE6 sometimes is that villain in a really poorly written action movie. You know, the one who has no place really being a villain, can’t do anything right, has no overwhelming brute strength, has no secret death ray and can be defeated by a child. IE6 is the villain for a lot [...]
- NBC Interviews NAACP President.
Disclosure: I am “white”, a non-minority, am not a member of the NAACP, and the only discrimination I face on a daily basis is by those who hate people who are too awesome. I am not a huge fan of the NAACP. I understand why it was created, I understand all the good it has [...]
- DC Gymkhana Two Infomercial.
I still claim that Rally Car racing is more exciting than any other motorsport. Why? Because people race over every surface and regularly hit trees and roll over, plus it’s so crazy you need a navigator. Let’s face it, if you need to be in a car chase, you want a rally car driver driving [...]
- A Question Of Racism?
I’m generally pretty quiet on the topic of racism, but fairly noisy on the topic of race v. ethnicity v. nationality, and this is kind of a weird mix of the both, so I found it interesting. I got linked to this article about this Korean kid in Canada who was kicked out of school [...]
- Paintings That Are Not Bad.
SO a few days ago, via Digg or some random Tweet, I came across badpaintingsofbarackobama.com. It’s an amazing idea, but the issue is this.. most the paintings aren’t bad at all, in fact some are spectacular. Insert random rant about people making a website with one function in hopes it becomes the next internet meme. [...]
- My Blog And I Broke Up, We’re Trying To Get Back Together.
My blog got all mad at me a few weeks ago, because I hadn’t taken it out in a few weeks, and because I hadn’t called in days, and the only thing it saw from me was a bunch of Twitter updates. So we broke up, we will see if we can be friends, and [...]
- Isn’t It Funny How Artists Ignore Artistic Progress.
So today I was reading a few weeks old blog by a band I very much respect and am a huge fan of. I won’t name them, because it has nothing to do with the band, maybe a little to do with what they were saying (also I’ve heard a ton of bands saying lately), [...]
So I posted some hate on Lefsetz, and really I’m not a fan of the guy. However, in fairness let me tell you guys why I do read what he says every now and then; He gets passion, he gets what music should be about. He doesn’t really get the realities of the industry (i.e. [...]
- Gene Simmons Pwns Lefsetz.
Gene Simmons, you know of Kiss, was up in Canada talking about his record label. Call me crazy but I have always liked Gene. He is insane, and egotistical, but he believes in himself, and whatever he does and he realises failure will only be at his blame. It’s maybe not the way to go [...]
- An East Coast Update.
So I’m sipping on some Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, and it’s quite lovely. That’s pretty much going to be the best part of this update, for some of you. I’m sitting in JFK, it’s snowing outside, it looks gorgeous. This is the second time I have been in New York in the past week. I head [...]
- Hey Remember Me? Or, The Least Coast Awaits.
I used to blog here. My name is Randall. How are you? So I have been ridiculously busy in the last few weeks, and there are good reasons for that. I have a ton of work, and I will be over on the East Coast for a couple weeks. Why? Why not! I will be [...]
- An Open Letter To Sigur Ros.
I wrote you once a few months back about this, and my email went un-replied. This is my second attempt. I ordered the Deluxe Edition of “Med sud i eyrum vid spilum endalaust”, I got my download, I even got my physical, and then months went by. You sent me emails to let me know [...]
- AP Versus Shepard Fairey.
Let me preface this by saying I used to love Shepard Fairey, and then I got to the point where I couldn’t stand him (because he started opening his mouth, as opposed to communicating through the medium that made him noteworthy). So at this stage in life, I can’t stand Shep, but I respect the [...]
- The Twenty-Point-Five.
So you know how it is over on Facebook, everyone has this “Things about me” thing going around like that time when your girlfriend got Mono, then all you friends did too (wasn’t that weird?). So, I got this originally from Chad and it was 16 things, and by the time Lindsay sends it to [...]
- Music You Should Like.
So Friday & Sunday (not, Saturday, because Saturday I drove to AZ and back, well I passenger’d mostly) I was helping my good friend Rohan out on his battle with MySpace and code. MySpace, albeit a great company to work with (yes, I’ve cashed a couple of their checks), can be kind of a mess [...]
Sometimes our Gov’t has been ectremely intelligent and creative in how it plans backbones of our daily lives, some times they are not. The Interstates project that Eisenhower was such a big proponent of is one example of the brilliance of logistics in Government, the Zip Code system is another pretty neat one. Here is [...]
- Reason #182809 Why I Love Letterman.
Vinyl. The man has musical performers on his show and doesn’t hold up the CD, he holds up vinyl. Gorgeous, circles of black, grooves of uncompressed, vinyl. And it’s not just once in a while It’s always. It must be show policy. I wonder if a band is allowed to play if they can’t get [...]
- A Good Client?
I kid. Most of my clients are actually some of the greatest people ever, so I’m pretty fortunate in this one. However, I have in the past encountered these people, and I suppose someone had to take over their design work when I moved on, so this is for you, whomever you are. And those [...]
- Carson + G2 on Obama.
That there is the cover of The Guardian’s G2 section that ran earlier in the week. One of my favourite people on earth David Carson did the design, and inside is a multitude of other designers takes on POTUS Obama’s speeches. Nice little feature for the design geek and/or political dork.
- Awesomenents, The Cure For All.
So this weekend I was in and out of an ongoing funk that I would like to attribute to the still ongoing pounding in my head. All weekend I woke up feeling unrested, and chose to blame it on falling asleep weirdly to whatever I fell asleep to. At some point yesterday after complaining about [...]
- The It Girl.
So anyone who knows me, probably doesn’t know I love “Gossip Girl”, I don’t admit it to many. However, in my defense, it’s a great show with some of the best writing on television. Anything Kristen Bell is involved with pretty much has my vote, anyway. That being said, anyone who knows me, knows my [...]
- MuteMath + Jeremy Larson = Leno.
MuteMath is a simply amazing band. I was fortunate to see them play live a few years back, and it was everything a performance should be. Some bands just get it. These guys made a rather brilliant video that you might be familiar with, then one upped that by recreating it on Kimmel. My good [...]
- Yahoo! Media Player.
The other day I came across Yahoo! Media Player. It’s a very simple way to build in a player to any website. It picks up any link to an mp3 on your page and throws it in the player, as well as sticks a play button next to the link. Most of the web development [...]
- Top Secret Project.
I’m starting a project, it’s going to remain secret for the time being, however it needs people involved. If you are at all the creative type, which most of my friends who read the lame-ness that is my blog are, then let me know and be sure you are up for some mystery. We all [...]
- Things That Suck About The People’s Choice Awards.
I didn’t want to do this, but it’s pretty much necessary. 1. Queen Latifah. 2. The whole, “high five the people as you go to the mic” thing. 3. Kid Rock over Coldplay. 4. The constant “Obama won the election” references. Like the actors did anything. 5. Ellen over Letterman. 6. Robin Williams. 7. Two [...]
- The United Plates Of America.
So a few years back when I was the Creative Director of The Militia Group, I had an intern. Actually I had quite a few interns, but most were local and weren’t there for something like 2-3 months. This particular intern came all the way out to California to live and show up every day [...]
- It’s The “Of The Year” Time Of Year. Part III (EPs).
This will be an ongoing journey through the best of 2008. Thank you for caring. Best Songs of 2008 1. Third Eye Blind – Red Star 2. Mike Dunn And The Kings Of New England – The Edge Of America* 3. The Jealous Sound – Got Friends 4. The Summer Set – …In Color 5. [...]
- It’s The “Of The Year” Time Of Year. Part II (Songs).
This will be an ongoing journey through the best of 2008. Thank you for caring. Best Songs of 2008 1. Augustana – Sweet And Low 2. Gavin Rossdale – Love Remains The Same 3. Mates Of State – The Re-Arranger 4. My Favorite Highway – Getaway Car 5. Jack’s Mannequin – The Resolution 6. Estelle [...]
- It’s The “Of The Year” Time Of Year. Part I (Albums).
This will be an ongoing journey through the best of 2008. Thank you for caring. Best Albums of 2008 1. Coldplay – Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends 2. The New Frontiers – Mending 3. Katy Perry – One Of The Boys 4. My Favorite Highway – How To Call A Bluff [...]
- Another Fantasy Football Season.
So this week marks the official start of the Championship Games for the last of my Fantasy teams. The stats this year are in, and I had an incredibly lucky year. I am in 4 Fantasy Football leagues. In the two leagues that have divisions I won both, finished first in one division-less league and [...]
- Comm Arts Webpicks.
One of my good friends is the uber talented brad.com, that’s not his real name, but I call him by it when not introducing him to girls with the classic “Have you met Brad?”. Anyway, Brad designs websites and every other designable thing and we have collaborated quite a few times (but not as many [...]
- Cat Cam.
In the ever revolving door that is the conversation of “What is art?” we have a new leading candidate to lead the side of “anything”. A cat. Yes, a cat. Two Pacific Northwest film makers decided to start experiencing the life their cat lives. It’s becoming an ongoing project tht has garnered a bunch of [...]
- Dear Nameless Medical Company.
Today I was looking through the design posts on Craig’s List, like I do, to see what freelance design listings are out there, and shoot off a quick email to any that sound interesting. It’s a quick little thing I do bi-weekly that could bring me my next client, and at the least gets the [...]
- And Here I Am.
So life has been crazy, I haven’t blogged in weeks (yet somehow people still come here), and I am finally feeling back on top of things. Here is the wrap-up: I was sick for a good solid 2 weeks, most of it came from breathing pure ash from some of the lovely fires in Southern [...]
- Detroit Bailouts.
So the auto bailout was postponed yet again today, which goes along with my life being postponed lately. I have been sick, barely able to do anything but watch Gossip Girl at 4pm. My apologies to all who it has affected. The person really affected is me, which is a lot NOT like the auto [...]
- Less Politics, More Free Music.
So we elected an African American, and California has more uneducated and religious voters than I thought (I’m not insulting anyone, the exit polls showed those voting Yes on 8 were in fact both those things). Let’s all relish in the opportunity of being a country that can once again innovate and lead this world. [...]
- My Favourite Election Moment.
Aside from the time John McCain introduced Joe the Plumber (and he wasn’t scheduled to appear) and he was no where to be found, this was my favourite election moment. That’s right, 7-11 did their own polls, and they predict a huge sweep for Obama. The greatest part of this map is how they just [...]
- T Minus 1 Day.
So as I sit here on the phone trying to figure out why Los Angeles couldn’t get my voter information out to me in time, I have been traveling some of the series of tubes. Every once in a while people ask me why I’m voting for Obama, I guess it kind of shocks people [...]
- Got Friends?
The Jealous Sound, where do I start? This band holds such an emotional attachment to myself. One song off Kill Them With Kindness was pretty much the anthem for an entire relationship. When I was at The Militia Group and J Sound was signed the entire office was ecstatic. Over the years I was there, [...]
- Google Gears.
So I officially back Google Gears. It took me a while to ponder if I really supported this whole thing, and to really figure out how it can be deployed across the internets, but I’m in completely now. It’s funny how a few months ago everyone thought the future of the web was to keep [...]
- Political Applications.
I was on the phone with my good friend Tell today, and it happened to be at the moment that I discovered the Obama 08 iPhone application. I was utterly thrilled, cause you know, Barack knows the internets. After my moment of jubilation, and my pestering Tell about his Obama 08 BlackBerry application (or lack [...]
- I’m A PC, But I Was Made On A Mac.
This one is just pure unadulterated bliss. Computerworld reports: Computerworld Several digital images that Microsoft Corp. has posted on its Web site to trumpet its new “I’m a PC” advertising campaign were actually created on Macs, according to the files’ originating-software stamp. Four of the images that Microsoft made available on its PressPass site today [...]
- McCain Says Workers Are Strong; Sky Is Blue.
I am never gonna try to claim (for better or worse) that one man is behind a political movement, campaign, or leadership, it is always a team of people. However John McCain needs to find some better people to bring aboard his team. The facts that he doesn’t use computers (and therefore is oblivious to [...]
- Alan Greenspan, Still Ruining Our Economy.
With all the financial sector shakeups this last weekend with Merrill being sold to B of A, Lehman’s declaring bankruptcy after multiple failed attempts to salvage it, AIG being saved at the last second by the Fed, and the potential for WaMu (who is currently the official bank ro rpj.com, B of A here I [...]
- An Open Letter To Dawson Leery.
Dear Dawson, It always pissed me off how you screwed things up with Joey. Sincerely, Randall P.S. Go to hell Pacey.
- Things For Your Eyes.
Earlier Today Chad Pearson sent over a link to this lovely video of Mike Dunn playing at an instore in the FLA. I have raved about how great “The Edge Of America” is before, but I’m gonna do it again. Watch this while you are downloading it from Amazon or iTunes. As a bonus to [...]
- Slam Crunk.
Do you like pop music? Do you like all those Hip Hop songs that make you sing along? Do you like amazing covers that combine the two into one? This is for you. Holiday Parade presents “Slam Crunk”, the newest in a bunch of white guys remixing through guitars and instruments to bring you a [...]
- What Do You Do?
The lovely (and soon to be back in town for a week) Lindsay Strannigan sent me this a few weeks back, it’s hilarious, and has a special inside meaning to Lindsay, Brandon Chamberlain, and myself. You see, they like to think my job is their personal tech support, and usually it has to do with [...]
- Chargers Sign Lance Armstrong.
So I am one of those twittering people, and as I have discussed with most of my close friends, I don’t really “get it” either. But I do it, and every once in a while I sure am glad I am. Yesterday was one of those days. This was why.
- The Good News.
So I have been absent from this little blog as of late, and rally there is no good excuse why. I’m busy working as usual, but I definitely could have spent some more quality time with good ole rpj.com. So where has my time been spent, you ask? Trying to solve the ever evolving issue [...]
- Protesting, And Holding Signs On Street Corners.
Joel posted on his blog the following video. It stirred me up all kinds of crazy, so be forewarned. Just head over to Joel’s blog to see the video. I have a newsflash “peaceful protestors” of Denver, the moment you left the park (where coincidentally the law enforcement had no issue with you) and started [...]
- NBC & Heroes Sponsor Student Films.
Apparently the title of this post is true, because I said so, but not like college student films, we are talking high school, and we aren’t talking that rich private high school with the really great arts program. I love Heroes, it’s probably my favourite show on television (though HIMYM is pretty even), but this [...]
- AT&T Sends Me A Text.
So I got a text message yesterday from AT&T, which was pretty interesting. As a lot of people know the iPhone 3G is getting some flack over the issues with 3G. I’m the kind that doesn’t care a ton, I just turn 3G off if it’s reception is low places, but I guess it should [...]
- The News Most Of You Know.
So this has been a few days forthcoming, but things are starting to look pretty stable, so I may as well put it on my website. I’m officially typing this from my new office, which is located in my house. Yes I will be operating Department Three from Long Beach now. It’s an exciting and [...]
- Twitter Free, Since ’83.
So I have stripped the daily “Twitter Update for” posts out of my weblog. They finally became too much. If you guys care to see them all, just visit my twitter, or the RPJ Live part of this site.
- Million Dollar Cheques.
So my good friend (though soon to be former, if he goes through with this) Chad Pearson decided to go ahead and make himself a lot richer today, on my dime (or 10 million). I sent Chad out a blank cheque to cover any expense with my art for the P Is For Panda “Pandamonium” [...]
- Today Is Officially The Day Of Photos.
So in addition to the earlier post about PGM and one of my photos being used, and the fact that today is the P Is For Panda Pandamonium event which includes 5 photos of mine in super large format (20″x30″), today HITS posted about one of my best friends William Tell, and used a lovely [...]
- PGM On Flavorpill And Filter Events.
Everybody’s favourite person Paul G. Maziar has a few of his events featured on Flavorpill, and one of them features a photo I took of Paul when we were in Mexico training to become Mariachis. He will be reading from his book “What It Is: What It Is” and Filter Magazine is presenting the events, [...]
- Oh, The Dreamers.
This guy (Mark Shuttleworth) needs a reality check. Your target market isn’t Apple’s; Ordinary users aren’t where your market potential is. The Register That dream? To produce a desktop more beautiful to ordinary users than legions of Apple programmers supping on the milk of chief exec Steve Jobs’ alleged brilliance are capable of producing.
Exactly a week from today P is for Panda will be having a little get together in the ATL to officially launch the label side of the Panda (I think this also will be one of the first places you can see the new line of Panda shirts, which I am still slacking on contributing [...]
- Catching Up.
No this isn’t about you and I catching up, this is a rant, be warned. Do you ever get those messages out of the blue on MySpace or Facebook from an old HS (or earlier, or later) friend, whom you truly have some good memories of, and have once over the past 10 years wondered [...]
- Just A Warning.
If you speak negatively about John Mayer, especially failing to actually say anything to back up your opinion (which is wrong by the way) and calling him over-rated and that he knows nothing about music, you will be deleted from my life. You don’t have to like the guys music, you don’t have to even [...]
- Hands Free.
As I hope all of you living in California know, July 1 is the beginning of the hands free cell phone law. You cannot talk on a cell phone with it pressed against your ear, you can however take your eyes off the road to text, email, blog, check traffic, etc. Yes, I actually do [...]
- Cadburry Rube Goldberg.
For those who have never been over to 333, you are missing out on the amazing Rube Goldberg we have on our fridge. Unfortunately it’s can’t really touch how cool this Rube is: a href=”http://www.collegehumor.com/videos”>funny videos at CollegeHumor a
- Do They Sell Mens Clothes Where You Shop?
… or, You Are Wearing A Girls Shirt. Now that we have all the title possibilities out of the way. Just the other night Kyle and I were discussing the ridiculousness of the V-neck. It’s pretty much a plague the likes of Von Dutch hats. Sure the V is comfortable, and shows off all that [...]
- Extreme Urban Soccer.
This is so much cooler than the last 57 soccer games I have watched (which inevitably are the only 57 soccer games I have watched, though it was cool when that one dude told the other dude his sister was “a little too experienced” in the World Cup), however it’s not nearly as cool as [...]
I was graciously included on the Dropbox Beta team. Dropbox is a pretty great idea that helps you keep all your files in sync across multiple computers. It has a similiar use to the iDisk function that .Mac users would be familiar with, only it is more focused with keeping the files locally and then [...]
- New World Moral Order.
This is a very interesting map, created by Maurice Gomberg in 1941 (published 1942). Interesting the concepts written along with the map. It’s a shame a 3 branched “world police” couldn’t be established to help the betterment of mankind everywhere. Even if it could have, would it have helped?
- Mayer, May Not.
Dan Crittenden’s recent twitter post reminded me that I never posted the brilliance that is the following:
- Firefox 3.
Does anyone understand why the version of Firefox 3 is “126.96.36.199″? Mozilla, if you are calling it Firefox 3, make the version 3.X.X., thank you. EDIT: Answer, because Mozilla decided to direct me to the Firefox 2 download. Because their servers were probably on fire or something? That was awesome. Step your game up! So [...]
- Try Giving Them Some Credit.
Our country is so incredibly lost in how it treats young people. It’s no wonder young people in America feel lost or the need to act out. No one possibly thinks these people are capable of greatness. What happened to all the faith being in young people? What happened to giving everything to the future [...]
- Why John Mayer Is One Of My Favourite People On Earth.
Things like this: JM Takeover Of Gizmodo Liveblog Hey guys, John Mayer here. Are you guys excited? I’ve just commandeered the computer of my good friend, Jason Chen, who is also very very handsome. That means a lot coming from a guy like me. My other friend, Moby, is also here. Have you guys seen [...]
- A Twist Of The Update Knob.
So I moved my Photography albums over to my .Mac account, and yes this includes my Photography Portfolio. You might be like, “What Photography Portfolio?” And my reply would be, “The one I was cheating on you with.” Anyway, here it is. I also have an iPhone gallery set up where I will upload pictures [...]
- Random Recommendations 6.2.08
Mates of State – Re-arrange Us Utterly amazing, the best album they have ever written. Chock full of hooks, sugary, angelic, hooks. Chip Kidd – The Learners I finally finished this on my trip up North. It’s a powerful book, anyone who went to art school or designs will probably enjoy it, though I think [...]
- In Case You Were Concerned.
I am in Sacramento, CA, at the airport, wondering why no one uses Bonjour when they are on free open networks. Let’s examine that. How fun would it be to see 30 people randomly pop up on your Bonjour list in iChat and randomly IM you. Aside from the fact that it could be that [...]
- All Quiet On The Western Front.
See what I did with the title there? That is some sort of writing instrument, I dunno which, but it’s clever, like me. It’s also mysterious and exhausted, also like me. So the blog has been a little lacking in interesting things lately, that is mostly because my non-blogosphere life has been a little too [...]
- Brand Tags.
From the world of “Weird things on the internet you aren’t sure what to do with”, comes Brand Tags. It’s an interesting sort of social interaction experiment I guess? Isn’t that what all of these sort of things are supposed to be? Anyway, it’s pretty fun for killing a few minutes. My personal favourite word [...]
A number of years ago in college, the fellow members of our secret society were in a computer lab, doing secret society things, when one of us stumbled upon a CD-R with the words “Y2KHAI” written on them. Since we were in a lab full of Apple’s we popped it in one and one of [...]
- Those Liberal Californians.
Today the State of California Supreme Court overturned a ban on same sex marriage. While I personally have had a rather vague opinion on homosexuality and even same sex parenting (I simply have beliefs on all sides of this debate), one thing no one can argue these days is that if we offer benefits to [...]
- All Of Politics Are A Fad.
Joel posted an interesting take on the shape of Politics in his life, I was going to reply, and I thought I would do so here. You should probably read his post if you want this to make the most sense. I support Obama, I hope every day for him to be our next President, [...]
- 10 Ways Hillary Clinton Can Still Win.
. . . . . . . . . . (you get it, right?)
- Twitter Has Taken Over My Blog.
So I have noticed now that I Twitter, and now that I added Twitter Tools to my blog, my daily digest posts of my daily Tweets are taking over my blog. It’s kind of lame actually, to me at least. I really wish I could have Twitter Tools do a weekly digest, so my blog [...]
- Fenway Time Lapse
Lovely look at the crowd filing in, field being prepared, baseball being played, beer being drank, Manny being Manny, Red Sox winning, gorgeous day/night in Boston, crowd exiting in Time Lapse. Video by Tom Guilmette.
- AT&T Hotspots, Free For iPhone.
AT&T just opened up all their hotspots in the US to iPhone users. B&N, The ‘bucks and more, now free. You might remember a while back they gave free service to anyone who has their internet service, and pledged to open it up to mobile as well. They have finally done that latter. I am [...]
- So We Can Build Up Our Future.
I personally do believe, that everyone is familiar with Miss Teen South Carolina already, so we can save that link/video/quote. Anyone that listens to Jim Rome also knows how much he loves to play said audio clip, so it should come as no surprise that I found the following image on Rome’s friend Tom Hoffarth’s [...]
- I Don’t Know What This Is.
However it’s fairly cool. Oh, it is this. I believe what it does is take people’s Twitter’s from all over and randomly pulls in ones that use certain words in them. I still don’t know “what” Twitter is, but if I ever find out, I might think this is really amazing or something. This might [...]
- Hate Junk Mail?
I have long heard stories of people who try to payback junk mail senders by returning the postage paid envelope full of their own propaganda and other random presort mail. I have never seen an idea as utterly amazing as this. Mailing bricks back to credit card companies? It’s amazing, sure it could get expensive [...]
- Twitter Wars.
So I was thinking about my recent adoption of twitter, along with Chad Pearson’s recent adoption of putting peoples names in his iChat status message, and I realised we could create some sort of uniquely annoying war. We could just randomly post untrue silly things about people (as @ them) and just create an amazingly [...]
- Political Piledrivers.
Last evening, the next President of the United States, the leader of the free world, appeared on WWE’s Monday Night Raw. Yes all of the potential President’s, somehow, were conned into appearing on a wrestling show. Every last one of their campaign managers should be fired. Next up, the decision on the Democratic nomination, live [...]
- My (Soon To Be Un-popular) Opinion On The War.
So I was doing some perusing of the internets the other day, reading this article. It’s not really necessary to click the link, the article doesn’t actually say anything interesting, it just rambles endlessly like our government representation (and this sentence), however it did get me thinking about the war and solutions. You should all [...]
- Darth Cheney Is Brilliant.
Dick Cheney absolutely stole the show at the Radio & TV Correspondents dinner last night. I’m sure he had a brilliant writer working for weeks on this material, but let’s face it the delivery is aces. My personal favourite is around the 3:50 mark, and it just gets better from there. If the last 8 [...]
- One Nation Under Banksy.
Banksy is back at his usual games across the pond. This time he is taking on the big-brother like CCTV that watches over all of London. The Daily Mail gives you the full story on how he set up scaffolding and tarps to pull this large piece off, all right under the watchful lens of [...]
- So This Is Twitter.
Okay, I know I should know this, I know I should be using it, and I know I should have been on this train like months ago. Regardless, Chad Pearson has convinced me to give it a go, and I am officially Twitter’ing. For the record, I still have no idea what this all means. [...]
- This Is A No Blog Weekend.
So I’m down in San Diego for the weekend; celebrating my Mother’s birthday (got her an easel, acrylics, watercolours and related supplies), spending time with the niece, moving furniture around, saboteur’ing with some friends. I haven’t been on the internet most of the weekend, and hardly have even seen my computer. So this is me [...]
- Oh, The Irony.
I found this brilliant advertisement on some website for the “Idiot Test”. It’s amazing when people are trying to get across a message on the topic of intelligence and then disobey the established rules of the English language. Is it an idiot test based on the fact no one intelligent would click on it? I [...]
- Winter Can Live On (If Only In These Trees).
With Spring fully engulfing the West Coast (heck we may be in Summer by this weekend), I thought a little reflection on Winter would be lovely. I don’t get to experience Winter, but I hear it’s lovely, but then again so is 70 degree weather year round. Svilen Dimchevski did this brilliant series of photographs [...]
- Run-On Wednesday.
Here is what I am doing with my life in complete random run-on sentence form for the people who care about what I am doing with my life. I go shopping for yogurt and bread buy way too many things decide that I need to go green and buy reusable bags because they will fit [...]
- iPhone Optimized.
A few months back I made the switch to an iPhone optimized admin version of WordPress, so my Mobile posting would be easier. A few weeks back I added an iPhone version (basically just a stylesheet) of this entire blog you are reading. Those of you on iPhone’s already noticed the last one, unfortunately no [...]
