Goatee Saver

I may actually honestly buy one of these. I'm one of those directionally challenged men who can't shave a goatee straight to save his soul.

Rock the Vote...Choose Wisely...

Dr. Ronald Chevalier

I'm on a freaking blog tear these days.

House of Cards

I'm so amazed by this. The video was done with no cameras or lights. it was all done with a laser radar system that by bouncing the lasers off of their faces or the houses, etc, a 3d point was determined. You can download the data for just Thom singing and using open source software run it on your desktop. They put the data out there so people could make their own visualizations based off of it.

Getting Comfortable with Discomfort

Interesting read from I think this is my major problem these days, just coping with discomfort and not letting it swallow me up.

No one likes to feel crappy, right?

Certain powerful sensations and emotions are simply uncomfortable, if not downright painful. For some people, feeling sadness or grief is nearly intolerable; others would rather cry for an hour than feel intense anxiety or fear. Having experienced some form of depression on and off since my teens (and having grown almost used to it), I’ve always fallen in the latter category. I’d rather bear those ills I know, if I have to bear any ills at all.

Interestingly enough, it was in experiencing some new ones that I learned something about the old ones, and stumbled across a more effective way of dealing with both.

Garfield minus Garfield

Another fav webcomic of mine. The concept behind this one is Garfield cartoons with Garfield removed and only Jon left. It completely changes the tone of the strip. Even Jim Davis, the creator of Garfield, endorses it and his company is going to publish a collection of Garfield minus Garfield comics.

minus garfield

Garfield Minus Garfield is a site dedicated to removing Garfield from the Garfield comic strips in order to reveal the existential angst of a certain young Mr. Jon Arbuckle. It is a journey deep into the mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against loneliness and depression in a quiet American suburb.

Cyanide & Happiness

I love this comic. It's done by 4 separate artists so the character styles change periodically. It's very dry and a little inappropriate at times, but that just makes it that much funnier to me.

I'm trying something new today called It's a web-based white noise generator. It also does pink noise and brown noise, but I haven't quite figured out the differences yet, other than they sound different. I'm listening to brown noise right now, and I have it cranked to the point that I don't hear anything else around me. I'm interested to see how it affects my focus and mood during the day.

My possible wedding gift to Jen and Dan

It'd be like their own private 7/11 in their backyard. Then on their 1st anniversary I can get them a slushee machine!

Mr. Rogers' Subcommittee

Kids today, and the world in general, need more people like Mr. Rogers. Not to be a babysitter, not to be a teacher, but just to be an advocate for a child. An advocate for someone who either can't speak for themselves, or can't find the words to express themselves.
