This is my 2012

This is my 2012

The thing I can’t decide is if this is the rear view or the forward view. It feels a bit like both some days. I played with inverting the image so the end of the tunnel was bright, but I decided to keep it like this. Not dark and depressing. Just unknown....
Conflicting Arrows

Conflicting Arrows

Bad user interface design? The sign is a directional lane indicator. The light is the direction you are driving if you want to get on the road that the sign is indicating. We understand these kinds of instructions, but they seem counter-intuitive when taken out of...
Maybe Not Such a Good Idea

Maybe Not Such a Good Idea

The best so far of the soapbox videos. After the 4 minute mark it gets crazy. I’m trying to figure out just how many cameras are in use and how much footage dude has to sort through. If I’ve linked to this before, it’s still worth another look....

Auspicious Start

I’m beginning to question the wisdom of travelling with two people I’ve known for 28 years: The green line is where we were supposed to go. The blue line is where we went. Share...

Product Placement

This is what happens when the lady is gone. I record shows like Carpocalypse. And after I bathed Leta and read her cute stories and tucked her in to bed, I watched this show while drinking bourbon. George, if you’re out there, you need to study up on this show...
