Re: Ow my eyes!

As for the new UC logo, the hate for it is a perfect example of why branding matters. The logo is minimalist and modern. Most colleges like to play up their heritage and history, and as a result, when people look at the new logo they get no sense of those things and their response is to immediately ...

Re: Ow my eyes!

Whatever. Apple didn't become a tech giant because they changed their logo. They became king of the hill because you either had an iPod or you had shit. Features and price drive sales. I don't believe your "the pretty wrapper made me buy this product" fairy tale. I find it kind of hilarious that Wa...

Re: NAP-time at the gryll

I clicked on this link thinking it was going to be a discussion about how to get an infant to go to sleep when he's not feeling well. That said, I think the NAP works well as a piece of functional, day-to-day philosophy, and trying to pick it apart too much just amounts to a lot of philosophical but...

Re: "Hey, they made a little movie for this song - how novel

Are music videos better, or worse, now that they're free from the constraints of MTV's Standards and Practices people?

Dunno, you be the judge.

Averia. The average font:

I find this font very pleasing, which is weird given that it's creation is kind of gimmicky.

They want her skull.

As soon as I read this, I hustled off to Wikipedia thinking "There's no way in Hell that The Misfits were on Jem, but if they were, that would be SO AWESOME."

On this day, Wikipedia has left me disappointed.

A really awesome CG short film that takes place in a post-apocalyptic wasteland.



Clearly inspired by Terminator 1 & 2, but awesome nonetheless.

There used to be a cigar bar here in town that wasn't exactly modeled on the depression, but had a speakeasy vibe to it. Y'know, the whole "go down a dark alley, open the door that has the blue light above it" and when you went inside, it was all swank, stogies, and scotch. It was expensive, so I on...

Portlandia has some pretty great bits. Its worth watching on Netflix, though the first season kind of peters out in the last two or three episodes.

Buzludzha You know how when you play a post-apocalyptic game like Fallout 3 , and you wander around the landscape gawping at the Washington Monument, or the Capital Building, and you kind of feel a little bit bummed out about it all, but at the same time, it's kind of awesome?
