booze: from the land of pleasant living

Spotted near the trash bins outside my building. I think I love the tagline the most: From the Land of Pleasant Living. Why yes, I do live rather pleasantly whenever possible. I’m not a beer person at all, but it...


TGIF: the ultimate battle?

Every time I see this t-shirt advertised on the Overcompensating comic feed, it makes me laugh. And I’m betting it would be a much better fight than robots vs. werewolves. Oddly enough with my recent t-shirt addictions, this one just...


video: three is too many

So I broke a 5-year streak and went on an interview today. It was for a job that’s similar to what I’m doing now, but might focus more on the parts of my job that I enjoy and have very...

Macy’s: Fabulosity

Loved this window display from the Macy’s in downtown DC. As Kyle said, it’s so clear that a member of our family had a heavy hand in putting this together.


UI: touchy-feely is still fine by me

This all started with a shared item from Kris’ Google Reader: FluidTunes Controls iTunes by Your Waving Hand. It actually looks pretty cool, your MacBook’s camera picks up your movements in relation to certain controls on the screen and you...
