as a professional creative, i often find myself looking to fellow motion designers for ideas and inspiration. you never know what might spark something: a color palette, a particular font or animation technique. could be anything. however, i’m always careful to maintain a substantial distance from whatever it is i’m drawing from. it’s called having […]


remember the post right below this one about the dog bed and how petco had priced the bed $30 cheaper on their own website than in their store? remember how strange and idiotic that seems? like how it seems they’re undercutting their own brick and mortar store? right? remember? it just happened again. this time, […]


just down the street from our house, theres a fairly small, but very nice city park. baseball field where we can take the dogs to go run. 9-hole frisbee golf course that i don’t take enough advantage of. nice little place. over the past several weeks, the city has been rebuilding the public restrooms there […]

i’ve avoided posting about this for awhile, because i haven’t handled it well. one of my very good friend’s dad died a few weeks ago. had a heart attack behind the wheel. while driving himself to the hospital. fuck. the reason this has been so hard for me is that not only did i know […]

sock ties. you know, these fucking things: fucking hate them. yes, hate is a strong fucking word, but i think it best describes my feelings in this case. for fuck’s sake, how many do you really need to hold a fucking pair of fucking socks together? what, is it just in case the fucking cargo […]


that is all. EDIT: so that is not all. i just got one of the most awesome birthday presents i’ve ever received: my very own jayne hat, handmade by my wonderful wife, complete with blue sun packaging and placed outside our front door adressed to me. my god i am such a dork, and i […]


where someone is walking down the sidewalk or standing on a street corner in the rain? then suddenly a car flies by, driving through a giant puddle, soaking the person on the side of the road? pretty funny isn’t it? let me assure you, it isn’t one fucking bit funny.


just read this article on apple insider. quite upsetting to me, though i can’t say i’m surprised. funny thing is that my buddy stephen called this a couple years ago. i started out as a hardcore pc user, resisting the design world’s propensity towards the mac for years. even though studios i worked for had […]
