That Was Epic

You know, sometimes it’s the simplest things that make you go, “Damn, I wish I had thought of that.”

That was epic takes youtube comments out of context and presents them in a simple, and far more elegant than they deserve, format. Voila, poetry! This is one of those cases where idea and execution just work together perfectly. And any time you can turn something as vapid as most youtube comments into some sort of societal study it’s a win for me.


Happy Thanksgiving!

Turkey Day

I’ve been incredibly remiss in posting lately. I will have to remedy that soon.

Welcome to the new facebook…

September 20, 2008

Much has been said about the facebook redesign. Judging by the amount of “Bring Back the Old Facebook” groups I’ve been invited to, it’s probably safe to say it’s not all that popular. Personally, I don’t mind it. Some of it works better, some of it worse, but whatever. For what I use it for, the new design works fine. (I don’t really have any need to have a “My Favorite Drinks ‘n Booze” box front and center on my profile.) Here’s the one thing I find most annoying about the new design:

Why do we need a “Home” link right next to the Facebook logo/Home link? Did people not get that clicking the logo takes you “home”? Isn’t that a fairly common internet standard? They even help you out by having a little house appear on the rollover. Now we have two links in a row that do the exact same thing.

I’ve notice the new design still seems to be undergoing modification. I hope this is one of the things that is still under construction, for my own nitpicky sanity.

Perfect color vision!

X-rite’s online 100 hue test. I’m glad I passed, I felt like my credibility was on the line a bit if I didn’t ace it. (Kidding…sort of. It is good to know.) So if you happen to be here via my portfolio, rest assured that I’ve got my colors down.

July 17, 2008 is an impressive bit of flash that “changes pixels on the screen into digital sand.” And it’s strangely zenlike. Just try it, it’s like a virtual zen garden. You click the grey square to get directions to begin. (I would wish the menu would be there initially, without having to be cutesy to discover it, but site’s fun enough to overlook it.)

Happy 4th

My sister and I were making 4th of July cupcakes. And then I started making Obama logos.

(Sorry John McCain. You should have made your logo easier to fit on a cupcake.)
