Pet Peeves Sep 25, 08, 11:05 a.m.
When people are speaking on the radio, and it sounds like there is too much saliva in their mouth.
Where? Aug 28, 08, 9:42 a.m.
A while ago, someone posted a youtube or vimeo link to this video with awesome new sort of directional audio, there was the sound of matches being lit, scissors, tape etc... Anyone?
Ahem. Aug 13, 08, 11:33 p.m.
(Not that it's happening so much tonight, but for future reference, if someone makes this mistake, please direct them to this thread.)
Use there when referring to a place, whether concrete ("over there by the building") or more abstract ("it must be difficult to live there").
* There is an antique store on Camden Avenue.
* The calculus books are over there on the floor.
# Use their to indicate possession. It is a possessive adjective and indicates that a particular noun belongs to them.
* My friends have lost their tickets.
* Their things were strewn about the office haphazardly.
# Remember that they're is a contraction of the words they and are. It can never be used as a modifier, only as a subject (who or what does the action) and verb (the action itself).
* Hurry up! They're closing the mall at 6 tonight!
* I'm glad that they're so nice to new students here.

So.. Should I sign this contract in blood? Please advise.
Optimizing Images Jul 10, 08, 9:52 a.m.
For web. Anyone have any tricks up their sleeve? Usually I just save for web and do my best to tweak it to find the balance that works, but then I'm blown away by someone like apple's homepage, which has a graphic that's 980x520 and it's only like 65kb.
Rockstar Designer Jul 8, 08, 1:25 p.m.
if I hear anyone say the words Rockstar and Designer together ever again. I will put a fucking fist through their throat. Prison sentence or not, it offends every single one of my sensibilities as a human being.

Question. I finally got a BBQ. Charcoal, it's great. How the hell do you avoid all the newspaper ash from getting on the foods? Have I used too much? Have I not let it burn off enough in the chimney starter?
Tanned Kids Jun 15, 08, 1:54 a.m.
Can someone please post the pictures of those ridiculously tanned kids at their prom? If you don't, I'm going to shit in the fridge.
Buying A BBQ Jun 10, 08, 2:42 p.m.
I'm moving. I'll have a little patio which I'm allowed to bbq on. Who uses propane, who uses charcoal? Which should I buy?
I can't wait to make a butterflied leg of lamb stuffed with rosemary and crushed garlic cloves and red wine and shallot butter. You're all invited.
flash jukebox Jun 6, 08, 8:18 p.m.
Any good really customizable ones out there? Free or not?
Funny Story May 30, 08, 10:47 a.m.
So. This is a good client story.
My business partner and I were in discussion to do some consultation work for a company who is going to release a national product. They were hoping to have us help them develop their branding and marketing plan with their designer. We thought "great, fantastic, consulting is fun."
At this point, we realized their "designer" is actually someone who just got a copy of photoshop, and the only project they've worked on was a set of business cards. (Horrible, at best. Type set in PS, trimming sections out of photos with the magic wand tool. No cohesive placement from one to the other.)
We thought.. "There is no way in hell that these people actually trust someone with this little experience enough to brand a product in which they are taking a second mortgage on their house to fund.." We decided to neglect quoting on consultation, and instead, we quoted on the creative direction and design, and wrote a lengthy precursor to the quote, outlining the reasons that they were totally daft cunts. (In more eloquent ways of course.)
We proceeded to find out that they "like that unnamed 'designer' is still green & wet behind the ears. It's fresh and naive."
Now we cannot wait for the "I told you so" moment. But seriously.. How stupid can you be?
The Apple Blunder Thread May 23, 08, 9:30 a.m.
Not allowing me to cut folders and documents to paste them somewhere else. Seriously guys, what's the deal? Are we not that advanced yet? Wait until OSXI? Bums.
No Drinking May 15, 08, 9:38 a.m.
Day 2 of no drinking.
Last night I noticed something...
When you're not drinking, there seems to be twice as much time in the day, and three times as much time at night.
More observations will follow.
Some Work May 8, 08, 3:31 p.m.
I haven't actually posted any work here in a long time. Here's some illustration I did for the band Wolf Eyes' show here in June.
If you're not familiar with the band, I'd listen while looking, it'll make more sense.
InDesign Pages May 5, 08, 9:36 p.m.
I'm wondering if it's possible to create a document in InDesign with 3 pages facing, so the entire width of them combined is 22" but it's split into 3 pieces, left side: 5.5"x5", middle 11"x5" and right 5.5"x5"?
