Thou Shalt Not Question Stephen Fry

We were going to eat out tonight… after a trip to the book store… So… totally creeped out by the recent article in Harpers about toxic chemicals in your blood and a report on Trans fat that I read… I ventured out with the rest of the fam… and, even though it was a...

What is an OEM? – Tom Manning’s Spamtoons

I gleefully tracked the poetry of spam this past summer (or spoetry) in a couple of posts (Thing 1 | Thing 2). Now, Yale School of Art MFA candidate Tom Manning has gone one better and turned them into cartoons. See the results on the excellent (if far too infrequently updated) Design...

Lance Hahn never paid to play

So, yeah, I’m always the last to know it seems. I heard from about the last person I would expect to hear from that Lance Hahn had died. That news disturbed me and colored these last few day more than I would have thought possible. I only knew Lance a little bit, but liked him

Today is going to be a good day

Today is going to be a good day

This was my neighbors lawn this morning. If anyone, I thought the guy two doors down who kept telling the trick-or-treaters to stay off his grass would be the one to get nailed. What must these guys have done that was so much worse? Maybe all it took was the hideous yellow SUV in their

Truckhead – Don’t you want to be my baby?

Truckhead – Don’t you want to be my baby?

Swimming in the great idea pool of the collective unconscious, it can be funny the things that will float by you on the way to the top. I was more that a little confused and surprised this weekend to come across a comic strip called Truckhead in the latest Nickelodeon Magazine at my local...

I’ve packed my Stickies in a SketchBox

OK. At long last I have converted the cluttered old mess of Stickies on my Mac (I had over 20) into something else. I’ve tried several other notes/thought organizer type apps and none of them, well… stuck. The recently released SketchBox freeware from omz:software did. It very simply...

Irony takes it in the back

Irony takes it in the back

Read that however you like… I’ve been assaulted lately by clueless advertising. Bad concept, execution and placement. First of all this has been a lesson to carry a camera at all times. Even while driving. And at whatever personal risk. It is because I did not follow this cardinal...
