Yeah, I played the lottery along with all the other bazillion people last week. I didn’t win the lottery. I did, however, win the POWERBALL – which means I won three dollhairs. ($3). Sure, I spent $5 on my tickets… but I got $3 back. AND I ended up buying a large Diet Coke and a breakfast biscuit […]

It’s okay to make a decision and then realize, “OH CRAP, that was a horrible decision.” It’s called experience. It’s […]

I Dislike Comic Sans.

So, I was doing some graphic design today. Which, by the way, I really wish I were better than mediocre at doing. Seriously. I really enjoy graphic design, but I get really frustrated because I’m mediocre. I want to be really good. Great, even. If for nothing else than to cut my time spent in […]

This post has absolutely nothing to do with the AV industry. I calm myself down by writing. Therefore, I’m going to write about this. <RANT> Do you know who that is? That’s RG3. Robert Griffin III. This year’s Heismann Trophy winner. He’s an extremely sought after prospect for the NFL this year. Now, I love RG3 as much as the […]

Creepy Digital Signage in the SSA

So, there I was, at the Social Security Administration office yesterday getting my name legally changed. I’m in the quiet waiting room, a very old, quiet waiting room, sitting among the 30+ other people, and I look up. There, on the wall, among old stuff, is a nice, shiny, new, SHARP Aquos digital signage display with information […]

Roy Williams Tie Choice > Outcome of Duke vs. UNC Game

013.jpg

I am a Carolina Basketball fan. No, I did not go to Carolina. Despite this detail, I do sometimes refer to Carolina as “us” or “we” in sentences. As in: “We really need to work on our rebounding” or “I can’t believe UNLV beat us” or “Why did we EVER recruit Neil Fingleton?” However, despite the fact that my alma mater, quite literally, is the dyslexic […]
