So don’t let go, of the power of elevation.

Is it bad that during the final battle scene in Kung Fu Panda between Po and Tai Lung, all I could hear in my head was the song “The Glow” from The Last Dragon? “No… I am THE fat panda!”...

… look closer

I think this qualifies as typography pr0n… The album cover for “Fast Asleep” from Funki Porcini is really well done. You’ll want to click the image for the full sized version. I saw this over at I Love Typography and...

it’s such a brilliant place!

Since a lot of what I watch is on Discovery and Science Channels, I have been completely unable to avoid their new promotion and jingle/song. Just reading today’s xkcd gave me an earworm for about an hour. [Audio clip: view...

Today is where your book begins

Well I’m feeling a little better for having vented a bit. I got home and made some dinner and some cocktails and have been enjoying some television. Having the ability to update my TiVo scheduled recordings away from home makes...

Rockin’ the Suburbs

Ben Folds was awesome, as expected. I’d never been to Wolf Trap before, and as a venue with an “under the stars” option, it’s definitely my favorite. Not that I’d planned on it, but I’ll never go to Nissan Pavilion...

Bits and Bobs

I barely pay attention to the screen when I set Pandora, actually its mashup cousin Pandora.fm, to a station and let it go, but some of my recent choices have been pulling up really old school tunes. While switching tabs...

Random Rainy Ramblings

iPod shuffle is never random. As I was leaving the office getting sprinkled and then full-out rained on, my pop music mix was playing a remix of Rihanna’s “Umbrella”. I advanced to the next song and it was “Umbrella” by...

Never gonna make you cry…

The phenomenon of the Rickroll is truly going from cute to mega. Noticed on Kris’ shared feeds from Gothamist: Meet the Mets, Rickroll the Mets Thousands of Internet denizens–including some Mets–don’t want to ever give Rick Astley up, so they...

Photoshop at the Funplex

Hurrah, spring has sprung. Coulda sprung a bit warmer tho, couldn’t it? It looks to be an interesting week or two and I may be hard-pressed not to break my “rule” of not blogging too much about the office. Hopefully...

Leave Her Alone

I would love to know the meaning behind this post-it note I saw on metro last Friday night. Oddly enough it touched on a conversation a friend and I have been having this week, but still is it viral? art?...

Oooh, baby it’s raining…

Last night Jason Calcanis posted a tweet about an interesting cover of Rihanna’s “Umbrella” by Italian pop/punk band Vanilla Sky. It’s a pretty good cover and the video is certainly a lot of fun, with cute guys even! I think...

Don’t Stop The Music…

It’s really hard to feel crap about the morning commute and workday if I cue this up first on my iPod shuffle. I’m not even all that big on Rihanna’s singing ability but it just takes the right producer to...

The dangers of aural pleasure

I defy most people to listen to “Rhythm of the Night” by DeBarge and not find themselves singing along with it by the end of the tune. If you don’t, then you either have no soul or you’re the kind...
