Remember March 15th?

leave a comment »

March 15th was the day I wrote…

The last two weeks have been crazy busy. I haven’t had time to post a thing. Hopefully later this week. Thanks for your patience.
(ps – I’ve thrown some stuff up onto Facebook and Tumblr, so check me out there.)

Well…
Apparently I never made it back to this site. I haven’t really posted anything here in about a month. To you, my dear and loyal reader, please allow me to extend a sincere and heartfelt apology.

The last 30 days have been busy ones, but I do not feel like I have accomplished a thing. I still haven’t finished the projects I was working on in February. I feel like I haven’t had enough sleep in a month, and so I use every free moment I have to take a quick nap. I seem to only have enough energy to talk the dog in the morning, and that’s about it. My life is a dull as hell, but I can’t find the time and energy to make it better.

Ugh.

Anyway, like I said on the 15th, I’ve been posting things on Facebook and Tumblr instead of here. Let me repost some of the  links I’ve passed around in the last 30 days or so.

An apology: While I thought I was being witty at the time, I think I may have made a real ass of myself last night. – Lesson learned, major lack of sleep can be just as bad as binge drinking!

Into An Asteroid By Dane Ault –

My favorite childhood video game and my favorite childhood movie, combined into one great piece! (though, to be nit-picky, the TIEs should not have the bent wing design.  They should be the classic straight wings.  just saying.)(Yes, I’m a MAJOR SW nerd, and I know it!)

Someone just pointed out to me that Ze Frank’s “The Show” was 5 years ago. Crap, where has the time gone?

Update- Ze is now adding retrospective commentary to “The Show”.  Interesting stuff.

3EANUTS – Like “Garfield Minus Garfield” removed Garfield the Cat from the Garfield comic strip, which then gave the strip a whole new feal, this site removes the last panel of a four panel Peanuts strip, to give that classic strip a completely different take on life. – CLICK THIS LINK

Chip Zdarsky

leave a comment »

What I love about the internet: Number 782 – Sometimes you just stumble onto some pretty cool stuff.

Today, I discovered Chip Zdarsky (zdarsky.tumblr.com).  A friend had sent me a page from “The Petal Falls Twice”, part of his One Page Series, where he posts a single page of a work-not-in-progress.  This page made me laugh.  Here, check  it out for yourself…

Pretty Awesome, eh?

 

Anyway, I found a lot other cool stuff on his site (though this was the funniest).  His site is mostly art work, and I liked what I saw.

I wasn’t sure if this was his work or not, but he had a link to a great piece from The National Post entitled “Steve Murray’s life lessons (for every age)”  I’m just going to give you the link here, but I recommend you click it and give it a read.  There is some witty stuff in thereEnjoy.

VYou

leave a comment »

Here is my new online addiction-   VYou.com

The premise of the site is that you ask questions of people, and they give you a video response.  Also, people will ask you questions, and you need to reply with a video of your own.  That’s it for the most part.  Very simple!

Like all of the social world of web 2.0, there are followers and following, but you can ask questions of people you are not following.  You can ask questions anonymously, or with your name on them.  And, you do not need to answer every question you receive.

I signed up a few weeks ago, but only began playing with the site this week.  I’ve asked a many many questions, received some answers, and even had someone ask me a question.  The site can be a real ego stroke, because who doesn’t like talking about themselves?  But on the downside, is that it’s a real blow to the ego when people don’t ask you a question.  It seems that minor celebrities and pretty girls get more questions then schmucks like me, but then, that’s how the internet works these days.

That said, it’s still a fun site.  I spent time jumping form random person to random person, asking stupid questions.  It was a time killer for sure, but a fun one as I challenged myself to come up with wittier and wittier questions.

VYou is in beta right now, and it shows technically: the audio and video quality is low.  A large part of that must be due to hardware that users are using (webcams and built in microphones).  However, I fond that tmy video and audio cut out when I record an answer, something that does not happen when I use the same webcam on other sites.  I found other people with answers that had laggy video and silent spots in their audio as well.  So, I’m going to blame VYou for this problem.  (However, I’m not an expert, so don’t hold me to that.) Hopefully these problems will be cleaned up down the road.

So, my recommendation to you is go out there, sign up, try it out, be social, and ask me some questions!  Thanks.

Haunted House

The Amityville Horror House is up for sale. The book freaked me out as a kid. Took me 3 tries to finish it. That said, I still want this house! – http://www.boingboing.net/2010/05/25/amityville-horror-ho.html

“The Simpsons Did It” has become an ongoing joke in animation and televison.  But this article proves that The Simpsons did it… Twice.
