First of all, I just want to say thank you to all you regular readers of the site, you’ve really made this site something I look forward to updating everyday. Moving forward, I’m going to devote even more time to the site because, well, this baby is still growing at an alarming rate. 170,000 views in the past two months is no joke! Big thanks to all the sponsors/advertisers for helping offset my site costs.
In honor of the huge increase of spam in the comments section (none of which actually shows up thanks to the wonderful akismet plugin) and the appearance of spam text messages on my freakin cell phone (how?) I am heading to the spam capital of the world (the other kind!). If anyone needs me I’ll be getting tanned and jacked in Maui for the week.
I’ve pre-written a few posts, so there will continue to be new content posted while I’m away. As soon as I return I’ll post up the Project #3 gallery (had some great submissions already)! Oh, and keep your eyes peeled, I’ve got a bunch of fun stuff planned for the upcoming months.
I just added another little Apple to the family. If you’re looking at getting a new computer consider Apple’s refurbished inventory. They are returns that have been totally refurbished at the factory, certified by Apple, and repackaged with the regular warranty for less $$$. Free shipping too.
TYPEFLASH has brought my productivity to a stand still. SO FUN. You can play around with several animated typefaces, customize them, save them, email them, print them, embed them. Pretty much the only thing they forgot on the site was a bib to catch all drool. (Give my little creation a second or two to load!)
I went camping this weekend with my old man and my sister. We went to our favourite (secret) spot, my pops caught two fish, and it rained just enough the first night that the fire ban was lifted and we could enjoy smores around the campfire – it was a perfect weekend. If you are one of the select few I have revealed the location to, you are sworn to secrecy. There are only a handful of places like this left on earth. Here’s a few flicks from our hike.
Waking up Monday morning sucks… or so I hear. I’m actually camping right now and this post has actually published itself! Thank you WordPress, for inventing the scheduled post feature! So I’m going to continue sleeping soundly in my tent while you take a gander at some really great graphic design work by Shaz Madani.
Feist performs her hit single “1,2,3,4” on Sesame Street’s 39th season. There’s a bunch of new lyrics in this version which teach children to count to four. I realise the song was already called “1,2,3,4” but this is a perfect example of how dumbed down television is now! We used to learn to count to 20.
When all is said and done, I respect Sesame Street for still trying to make learning fun. I just really really miss the old Sesame Street. If anyone needs me I’ll be in my trailer writing a hit song called “1”. I will also be writing a second version for Sesame Street that teaches children how to count all the way up to one, and in a few years time I’m sure that song will have to be replaced with an even shorter version.
