I have two thiiiiick envelopes of Booooooom stickers with your names on ‘em. If you want to win an envelope, here’s what you have to do:
1. Join our Fan Page.
2. Photoshop the Booooooom icon over your face and use it as your Facebook profile photo until Friday 6pm (Pacific). If you don’t have Photoshop, you may simply replace your profile photo with the icon.
3. Leave the message “Can we be best friends?” on the Fan Page wall. The wall message must be posted before Thursday 6pm (Pacific) to be eligible!
The winner will be announced Friday evening!
Yes, this is a scraggly haired photo of myself during production of my gradfilm (and it will be my profile photo during the contest). Good luck!!!
Today we launch our Facebook Fan Page! This will not replace the Facebook Group, it’s just that Facebook actually prevents me from sending out updates now due to our size (5000+). I have planned a bunch of projects and other fun things and they’ll all be more successful if I can quickly update all of you about them. So join the Fan Page if you want to show your support for the site and especially if you want to be involved in any of our upcoming projects or even help plan some of them.
The Facebook Group will continue to be the place to promote yourself and post links to things you think will inspire others!
Yesssssss! Another nice package showed up at my door, this time goodies from Field Notes (a DDC/Coudal product). Now let me start off by saying, I am a fairly early adapter in terms of new technologies and gadgets. I twitter from my Blackberry, and I’ve even updated my Facebook status using my Wii (just once, because I could). But there is no better feeling than jotting down ideas in a good old notebook with your favourite pen or pencil. I love it. Field Notes sent me over a stack of little notebooks. Beautifully simple packaging. Blank, lined, graph paper, several styles. Pencils, rubber bands, even a calendar. Thanks you guys, they will be put to good use!
I am sick at home today but a box just arrived at my front door that cheered me up. The good folks at Oakley sent over three pairs of their new Frogskins (including the four-leg one), plus the Robert Pimple (aka Barry Mcgee) Hijinx frame, and the Will Barras Montefrios! Thank you very much!
We are growing at an alarming rate! We’ve had over 1,000,000 pageviews in just the last 30 days, and we’re still less than a year old! The Facebook Group is so big now, they won’t let me send you all messages anymore (good problem I guess).
So I just wanted to take a second to say thanks to all of you for the support! I feel like I know many of you now (especially the frequent commentors), and there is definitely a great creative community forming here. I love running the site and hope to eventually make it my full-time job! Keep your eyes peeled, there’s lots of fun things coming…
At the risk of having you never come back to this site, I have compiled a list of 17 other sites to feed your creative appetite. Dozens more could have been added to this list (perhaps there will be a sequel to it). Most of the sites included here do not get the credit they deserve, and even the popular ones deserve even more attention. In no particular order:
1. Triangle Triangle – A fantastic photoblog (my favourite on the entire internet). Jake’s tastes are really similar to mine.
