I Finally Got My Lazy Ass off the Couch

Thursday, February 28th, 2008

I’ve never had healthy habits, but until recently they never seemed to be a problem; when I was younger I took for granted how active my job really was. I was surprised to find when I got my first post-college “real” (desk) job how the calories started to pile on. For a while now I’ve […]

I’m Still Alive

Thursday, February 21st, 2008

The past two weeks have been incredibly busy. In addition to assimilating to the new job, I’ve been swamped with freelance and work for my class. Alana also started a new job, at Evolved in Columbus, probably the most reputable tattoo studio in the state. We’ve had a lot of work getting everything ready for […]

@bdielman have you seen Symphony CMS? Don’t know if it’s right for us, but worth a look. http://21degrees.com.au/products/symphony/ # There is a very good reason you shouldn’t use one giant 120k background image instead of slicing up your PSD, besides making me cranky. # Was able to make student’s project IE6 friendly in 3 steps.

LA Ink: Season 2 Episode 4

Thursday, February 7th, 2008

The first tattoo of this episode is a crane on a girl’s ribcage. As Kat’s applying the stencil some dude Corey’s tattooing is ogling her and making rude comments. If this ever happened to me when I was getting tattooed, I would never come back. If I were the artist working on a client who […]

Met a gentleman named Spider Sex last night. He was wearing a 3 piece suit from the thrift store, which he allegedly washed for two hours. # At Panera it is possible to ruin a peanutbutter and jelly sandwich. # Apparently Tom Jones’ chest hair is insured for almost $7million. #

Cleveland Web Standards Association ’08 Planning Session

Wednesday, February 6th, 2008

Last night’s CWSA planning meeting was a great success. We’ve had a lot of new faces, some of them traveled pretty far to attend. Some topics discussed last night: Trying to advance standards in the local web and business communities without being the CSS gestapo. Involving other industries in our group. (Maybe we can find […]

thought demonstrating liquid & fixed CSS layouts would take fill hour lecture time. It did not. 30 minutes, for future reference. D’oh. # has a lot of reading to catch up on this week. # Agh the iPhone is 16gb now. The official Apple early adopter cry: "If only I had waited!" # if you’re […]

Some of Alana’s Derek Hess tattoos have made their way onto his site. Though I’m not a fan of Derek Hess’ work, Alana really enjoys tattooing his designs since the style and line work are drastically different than typical tattoo art.

Tuesday Link Roundup: American Cannibal Edition

Tuesday, February 5th, 2008

Symphony CMS. Symphony is a pretty nice looking, free web publishing system powered by XML and XSLT. I can’t wait until I have some free time to try it out. IDSA Mideast Conference ’08 (Columbus, OH) Art + Science, the Mideast District Conference in Columbus, Ohio will explore the dichotomy of art and science, the […]

Finally got a long overdue haircut, feeling significantly less shabby. Not looking forward to conquering Monday. # Putting out fires, which could’ve been averted had someone organized their PSD and named layers. # Alana is in Columbus and just bought me the new Black Mountain and Dead Meadow records (yes vinyl) awesome! # Opening a […]

Home from CWSA meetup. It’s so refreshing to geek out sometimes it’s hard to leave! #

The Cat’s Out of the Bag

Sunday, February 3rd, 2008

Things have been kind of quiet on this blog, as the speed of my life seems to have doubled. I just came home from vacation, and will be starting a new job at Progressive Insurance. I’m sad to leave my coworkers behind; it’s not often one gets to work with such a talented and knowledgeable […]

Isn’t Friday supposed to be the least stressful day of the week? # is about to reluctantly take on a Flash project. Moral conflict abounds. # @antiheroine your site’s hiccuping when I comment She is bland. Never could put my finger on it before. Sometimes bland is right. # @nathansmith the idea of an all […]

realizing Lost isn’t quite the same on TV as it is on DVD. Watching 3 episodes at a time FTW! # Cheeseburger meeting disengage! # @bcullen if you want a good laugh, see the Progressive online application. #
