...and that's where we left off last time.

I like bike

So I bought a fixed gear bike. Well, it's not a true fixed gear bike as it has still has both brakes and the option to ride free-wheel. But it is light, fun, and pretty fast. While trackstands and riding backwards seems pretty fun, fixed gear was too odd and now it's set back to free-wheel.

Goodnight sweet prince

My favorite watch finally died. After years of bike riding, swimming, snowboarding, and daily office wear, my Casio calculator watch finally croaked. I think it shorted when a bit of water got in it after I jumped off a 20 foot rock into the Kern river. This fifteen dollar watch outlived other watches twenty times its price while never complaining for more batteries or maintenance. Oh well, maybe it’s time for an upgrade.

Logo Design

I just finished this concept logo for a friend's startup.

This is the face I made...

when I my new copy of hamburger eyes in the mail. Hamburger Eyes is a cool little photozine published in the bay area. I bought a subscription a while ago and the last issue I recieved was over a year ago. I was pretty sure they had folded or simply bolted with the dough. But then...

American Gladiators 2007

They’re bringing American Gladiators back. Lemme repeat that for poignancy, they’re bringing American Gladiators back. I’m not sure if this is a good or bad thing. I do have fond memories recreating the Eliminator during lunch on the playground. And to this day, I secretly want a tennis ball launching cannon mounted on the back of my truck. However, like most retro revivals, the new one never quite lives up to the nostalgia. Anyways, here are a few ideas that might set the new show apart from the old one:

An Illustrated Guide to Coffee Drinks

Lokesh Dhakar has this very good infographic on coffee drinks in their various forms. On Saturday, I had drank a Redline. I'm not sure why I did it, maybe it was because it had been a long day; maybe it was because my judgement was already impared by lack of sleep from the night before. Anyways, that stuff is bad news. The whole night I had cold sweats, LS, felt like barfing, and didn't fall asleep till about four in the morning.

Deezer Logo
Web 2.0 is great, but only when you get stuff for free. That's why Deezer is my new favorite site. Think of it as someone's massive MP3 collection readily available to you with out subscription or even log in. Mucho excellento for worko.

iPod Shuffle Colours

Here's something subtle that I missed in the whole new-ipods-hoopla this Wednesday. The new iPod shuffles have a different palette. I know! Shocking right? Anyways, the new colors are a little more muted and a bit darker. I'm not sure if I like it.

Don't Tase Me Bro

Oh citizens of the internet, you sure do have a way of latching onto current events and distilling them into their essence. For example, when a University of Florida student was tasered at a John Kerry speech over the weekend, all you guys came away with was this. That's right. Get your very own Don't Tase Me Bro t-shirt right here. Get it before nobody know what you're talking about (next week).

Give up your car.

I just read this article in the Register about this family of four in Santa Ana who gave up their car and starting taking public transportation and peddle power. At first, I was shocked by this article. Americans giving up their cars for bikes? OC people giving up their SUV and taking public trans? WTH? This has got to be a gimmick. But then the more I thought about it, the more disappointed I am with myself. I like riding my bike, and my bike is perfect for commuting. But for some reason, I'll hop in the truck to run the simplest of errands. I also don't work that far from home. Riding my bike would only increase my commute from 15 mins to 22 mins.

The only thing that I have to criticize the family about is their lack of head protection. Wear a helmet man! I hate helmets as much as the next guy, but I hate paralysis even more.

Burn Baby Burn

NASA's Earth Observatory has some pretty cool photos of the various brushfires around Southern California. See them here. The Los Angeles Times is updating the situation quite often via Google Maps. Very neat.

Please. No more cookies! I can’t take anymore.


“Two students at Southern Illinois University in this St. Louis suburb kidnapped, paddled and burned a young man with freshly baked cookies after a drug deal went bad, prosecutors alleged.”
See what happens when potheads start committing crimes? What’s next? No naptime for you! Oh wait we already do that one.

Chinese dude sweats green

From Ananova:

“Cheng Shunguo, 52, of Wuhan city, says his sweat turned green in the middle of November. Cheng says he feels no discomfort, but went to hospital because he was worried about his condition. Doctors thoroughly cleaned his armpits but it took only 10 minutes for his sweat to turn a piece of white gauze green again.”
Attention people of China: Cheng Shunguo is the next Swamp Thing, kill him with fire and pitchforks. And as sexy as green sweat sounds, do not attempt to copulate with him, you’ll get gangrene.

Who Owns All The Organic Companies?

I've always been a sucker for corporate ownership diagrams and data visualization. It's like my failed design profession mashed-up into my business nerd personality. Here's a pretty good one from GOOD magazine:

A few other ones that are pretty good are theyrule and Who Owns Web 2.0.

This American Life #365

Another Frightening Show About the Economy. TAL does another great job explaining things in simple, every day terms, yet still very comprehensive. This time it's about our bail out. Listen.

I bought myself a new chair

This is the first pace of furniture I've purchased as an adult. It's an Emeco Heritage Stacking Chair by Philippe Starck; made from 80% recycled aluminum. I've been sitting in it all evening and it's surprisingly comfy for being a single unpadded piece of metal. Next up, the bare bottom on a winter morning test.
