When I’m lazy, I file things here.

  • Flamethrower

    September 16, 2013

    Since my work at Simply Recipes has been moving more into the video space, I’ve been attempting to teach myself After Effects. To that end, here’s a video of my son, tossing a fireball:

  • Toilet + Phone = Fail

    June 18, 2008

    I nearly filed this in the Heart chapter, because I feel so strongly about it. I came across a particular article today that brought these strong feelings to mind. It seems as though a random woman I do not know dropped her phone into the toilet. It’s a very good article arguing that technological tethers... Read More

  • Muxtape Smart Playlist for iTunes

    March 26, 2008

    What, you haven’t heard of Muxtape? Where have you been the last day or two? You don’t already have a playlist?! And you call yourself web savvy. Not to worry. While the Twitterverse is taking bets on how long before Muxtape gets pulled down by the RIAA, here’s a neat little tip that helps you... Read More

  • Zen Desktop?

    March 15, 2008

    All this talk of creating a minimalist workspace has me thinking. Is it really possible? Here’s a list of things currently on my desk. Help me decide which things to toss/relocate: An empty orange juice glass Several new Plasticmind Design business cards Several old Plasticmind Design business cards Greg Hoy’s business card A jar of...

  • Smokey And The Toxic Fumes

    January 5, 2008

    File this under the “wish after the fact that I had taken a photo but too tragic at the moment to get one” category. For lunch today we ate a frozen pizza. Oh don’t worry, we cooked it first. In fact, right after we pulled it out of the stove, we put it on one... Read More

  • They’re Like Armpits

    October 10, 2007

    I know, everybody’s got excuses and they all stink. But for about a week now, I haven’t been able to log into my MT install. Something about SchemaVersions, database upgrade loops and My Little Pony. And that’s one hundred percent the reason I haven’t posted in a long, long time. Maybe.

  • Clove Victims: Over-Indulgence in the Condiment Is Often Fatal

    April 9, 2007

    Straight from a 1920’s newspaper… farce or fact? A Fair Girl’s Sad Fate–Too Much Clove Eating Actually Shrivels Up the Body A physical wreck from eating cloves. Odd as it may seem to the non-professional person, this condition is not at all uncommon in those who carry this foolish habit to excess. Comparatively harmless as... Read More

  • The Poor Man’s PDA

    February 27, 2007

    I am a walking paradox. My dream house is a cabin in the north Maine woods, yet I live 10 minutes from Philadelphia and my apartment looks out over I-95. I am a song leader at our church, yet I thrive on electronica. And here’s the kicker: I am professional web designer with three computers... Read More

  • Scientific Progress Goes Boink

    February 20, 2007

  • Hello, I’m Alive.

    September 7, 2006

    *twitches* These past two weeks have been insane. Filling in for pastor while he was away on vacation, heading up our 2006 YAMFest (in the face of Ernesto), painting faces at the AWANA fun fair, giving out candy and poppers at the PBU Ministry Fair… it’s a head-spinning whirl of activity, probably the busiest part...

  • Pineapple Upside-down Me

    August 20, 2006

    It’s Sunday afternoon. You know what that means. Sunday afternoon, my body shuts down. I try hard to engage in meaningful conversation, but I find myself fading. Wide-opened-eyed, blinking back sleep, staring like a zombie at this person I care about who is starting to sound alot like Charlie Brown’s teacher. *WAH WAH, WAH WAH,... Read More

  • Man Lotion

    February 28, 2006

    My skin is dry and if I were black, I’d be ashy. But every lotion out there smells girly–vanilla bean, ocean breeze, crushed pineapple with a hint of brown sugar. Is there any good, manly-scented hand and body lotion for my dry skin? (And not the unscented kind, that just smells like old ladies.)

  • In or Out

    February 24, 2006

    My wife and I are having an argument. I’m wearing jeans and a gray turtleneck that untucked comes down about 6 inches below my belt. I say it should be tucked in, she says it should be out. Who is right?

  • Death and Taxes

    February 7, 2006

    Well, I decided to break from the chocolate and flower liturgy of Valentine’s Day and turn it into to the 12 days of Valentine. For twelve days leading up to Valentine’s Day, I’m either giving something to my wife or doing something for my wife. Yesterday it was a batch of chocolate covered fortune cookies... Read More

  • Expectations, Liberalism and Donuts

    January 21, 2006

    Did you ever notice how much we come to expect certain things in life? Like when you go to Dunkin Donuts and you expect them to have donuts. Sure, it was 12:30 am when the two of us had a hankering for donuts, but come on… the sign says Dunkin Donuts, not Dunkin Bagels or... Read More
