    on Feb 27, 2009

    on Feb 26, 2009
    So I'm sure you've all been hearing quite a lot about the new Pepsi logo. If you live in LA, you can't help but see the huge super-billboards with the new ad campaign. Maybe you saw the TV commercials rolling out the new logo on New Year&

    on Feb 19, 2009
    I don't quite picture Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry, as they played them in the mini-series based on the P.G. Wodehouse books. I've been returning to the series of novels after too long of a break, and I intend to finish them all. If anyone has

    on Feb 19, 2009
    "When you're in a relationship with someone who's selfish, what keeps you in it is the fact that when they shine on you, it's like this souped-up shine. And you feel like you're in the club and you don't even know what the c

  • Photobook Friday: L.A. Sunscape
    on Feb 6, 2009
    Earlier this month, I was in my bedroom working on my laptop. When I get to really working on something, hours go by, and I don't even notice. I hadn't turned on any lights, despite the sun setting. It's when I realized that everything o

    "There [are] different types of design. One, we can call the cynical design. [...] The design must be [...] for marketing, for producer to make the product sexy. The product may be just like that, they sell more. [...] After, there is the ...

  • I so would like a touch screen
    on Feb 3, 2009
    Alright, it's been a couple years now-- where is this touch screen? I want one. I mean, I know there's the iPod Touch and iPhone, neither of which will I ever purchase because I don't want to look like a tool (Most iPhone users do). And I
  • Instant Flashback on the Radio
    on Feb 3, 2009
    My old stereo. Doesn't work anymore, but I used to carry it around everywhere. I'm too attached to part with it. I had to post this song, "Something About You" by Level 42. I was washing the dishes with the radio on, tuned to Movin
  • Cover to Cover: “Tainted Love”
    on Feb 3, 2009
    Cover to Cover will be a new segment in the blog, but on a less regular basis. Depending on how successful it is, I may be doing it on a bi-weekly to monthly basis. Cover to Cover will feature my favorite songs that have been covered, whether I ...

  • Wordpress Upgrade + Avatars
    on Jan 29, 2009
    So I've finally upgraded to Wordpress 2.7 (I was at 2.3 before, I think). That means I've activated Gravatars (that sounds like something out of Transformers or something, doesn't it?). The default avatar for those commentators (is that r
  • IETester is the best thing to happen to web designers’ browsers since Firefox
    on Jan 29, 2009
    So, IE8 is making its debut and some of you may have noticed that it doesn't quite render the same as in IE7, IE6, or as in other browsers. Sure, I've been using workarounds for IE, but I hadn't upgraded my IE from 7 to 8 and had no ...
  • Americans Talk About Love Pt. 2
    on Jan 29, 2009
    How do you describe the person that you have found -- he's my best friend. Which was a new concept for me. Not just loving the person you're with but liking them. You know, you've probably heard people say, "You should be friends first
  • Technology in the White House: Let’s be real.
    on Jan 27, 2009
    Reading Salon.com's article "You Don't Have Mail" by Mike Madden. I'm very much surprised to hear that the White House is having technological difficulties (e.g. e-mail down). I mean, I love the new website. The fact that this
