Ron Swanson as an operating system

Ron Swanson as an operating system

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

I was creating a simple webpage that clients could download a support software package, and I was doing the typical icons for operating systems thing… but I needed an option for no-nonsense web-only support option. I thought “what icon represents the no-nonsense, to-the-point option?” … Ron Swanson! Something about the concept of Ron Swanson as […]

Review of Vibram KomodoSport shoes

Review of Vibram KomodoSport shoes

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

I bought some goofy shoes today… the kind with all the toes broken out into individual little pockets. I saw them a couple days ago in a local sporting goods store and thought they might just help with that cramped feeling my toes have. I know you might just be thinking “get bigger shoes idiot”, […]

Why is Ted Mosby kicking butt in District 13?

Why is Ted Mosby kicking butt in District 13?

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

One of my current vices is watching a show called How I Met Your Mother. Aside from Neil Patrick Harris (oh yes, NPH would do that), the show also stars Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders, Alyson Hannigan, and Josh Radnor. The story centers around Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) as he tells his kids the story how […]

The funniest commercial I’ve seen in a long time

Wednesday, February 17th, 2010

I normally hate to take commercial videos viral, but holy crap this made a group of us laugh pretty hard when we saw it on TV. So hard in fact, we had to rush to YouTube to re-watch it.

A Microsoft ad that isn’t klunky, awkward, or outright embarrassing?

Saturday, January 9th, 2010

Everyone knows MS ads… no, MS marketing in general… it just sucks donkey wang. Even the new Windows 7 ads that a lot of people are saying “don’t suck so bad” are crap… except for Kylie, but that’s all her not MS. Anyway, I have no idea if this is supposed to be a viral […]

Minimally humorous images that still crack me up

Minimally humorous images that still crack me up

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

Over time, things that catch your eye for one reason or another while surfing the interwebostream tubes tend to collect on your computer. Out of all the BS on my computer, these are a few of the images that really aren’t that funny beyond an initial chuckle, but for whatever reason they always get me […]

The best bathroom fan switch cover I’ve seen

Saturday, November 21st, 2009

Mind Camp this year is being held at Synapse in downtown Seattle. The men’s bathroom has one of the best switch covers for the fan I’ve ever seen.

The difference between spelling and grammar mistakes

The difference between spelling and grammar mistakes

Monday, May 11th, 2009

Some people think when a word is spelled correctly but used incorrectly, that is a spelling mistake. I disagree. If a person intended to use a different word, but through a spelling misstep used another word which happens to be spelled correctly, that is a grammar mistake my friend. Take this example; We passed a […]

A series of observations

A series of observations

Sunday, May 3rd, 2009

I’ve taken to using my trusty camera phone to quickly snap things I find interesting or noteworthy, if only to me. Over the last couple days I had several opportunities. First off, we woke up early to take a morning walk and passed this guy’s car. He’s obviously just as tired of the lipper traffic […]

Traffic, Englican, and George Clooney's nose

Traffic, Englican, and George Clooney’s nose

Saturday, April 25th, 2009

Today I went to pick up my mail at the UPS Store. I use those guys for my business mailing address because I used to move around a lot and it was just easier to use them as my mailing address and forward everything than having to make sure my address has been updated in […]
