Let’s try this again.

2014 has rolled around and I, for one, was completely ill prepared for it. Time is rushing by just like…um…some really trite metaphor for the quick passage of time. Hmmm. I think you can see why I haven’t updated this site for a while. My creative juices have evaporated to the point where all that’s […]

Just let it slide.

Remember The Fun Theory? It is a Volkswagen initiative to get people to think of ways to change people’s behavior for the better. I haven’t been to that site for a while but I always thought ‘Damn, Volkswagen sure does have some interesting marketing campaigns.’ For them it’s a win-win: people find inventive ways to […]

Exactly How Many Ninjas Could I Defeat?

None. Ok, maybe that answer was too simplistic. But after thinking the entire thing through that was my final answer. For the past two posts I’ve considered how many 5 year olds I could best and the number of zombies I could conquer. With this installment we’re examining an enemy that has a significant advantage […]

The City of Brotherly Love (Part 2)

Tuesday I spent Tuesday sitting through meetings, consuming anything that had caffeine and coordinating schedules with Matt. After his bar ninja routine from the previous night I thought that he’d be ready to completely run roughshod over Philadelphia. Luckily, that wasn’t the case. Still feeling the effects of, uh, being lame, Matt wanted to keep […]

The City of Brotherly Love

I’m sitting here at my desk after having just returned from the symposium that I went to in Philadelphia. As many people who are participants of conferences know – work in the day, party at night. This was no exception. And, as we all know, I’m somehow a magnet for both a good time as […]

This is why I love Olivia Munn

I adore Olivia Munn (Wikipedia, imdb). She’s the kind of woman you’d like to just hang out with, drink a few beers, tell a few fart jokes and possibly get into a bar fight with. She’s good looking but not the unapproachable type. What’s even better is that she’s so down to earth. Who cares […]

iPhone Music

I love my iPhone. I know that there are haters out there who are all sorts of anti-Apple but, come on, you sort of have to get over it. In terms of design Apple has done a lot to revolutionize our concept of user interfaces as well as interacting with our devices. For instance, there […]

The 2010 Super Bowl Ads

Congrats to the New Orleans Saints for winning the Super Bowl. You have proven that you are the best at the sport alternatively known as North American Hand Egg. Evidently, calling the sport of ‘football’ something more literal like ‘hand egg’ makes everyone else around the world happier. It was an exciting game, filled with […]

Space Battleship Yamato – Live Action Movie

At first I was going to play off badbart’s comment in The Last Air Bender post until I realized that he said ‘Star Destroyers’. This, of course, meant the gigantic, triangular battleships in the Star Wars saga. When I first read his comment I thought he was talking about the American version of Space Battleship […]

M. Night Shyamalan’s “The Last Air Bender”

Let’s get a few things out in the open before I talk about this film. I admit that I am going into this movie ‘blind’ because I haven’t seen the cartoon that this is based on, “Avatar: The Last Air Bender”, which aired on Nickelodeon. The fact that it aired on Nickelodeon was one of […]

Safeway Either Wants Me To Shop Or Head To Vegas

I’m not exactly sure if this is a plug for the grocer Safeway or if I’m merely falling into a marketing person’s trap. For years we’ve been warned about the subliminal aspects of advertising and I never thought that I’d experience a Pavlovian moment until now. This commercial drives me nuts: [flv]http://heyitcouldbeworse.com/media/Safeway_USA__Commercial.flv[/flv] It seems fairly […]
