De Ja Vu All Over Again

Remember that story? I know the analogy isn’t perfect, but I think there are (or will be) some key parallels between the two.

Reborn

Firstborn just launched a new site and I like it. It’s really solid, easy to navigate and functions well. That being said, it’s never going to match up to their 2005 version, which is one of my favorite sites of all time.

Rita Flórez on Why Zines Won’t Die ‘SNL’ Staff Fired En Masse – Um, wow. I didn’t see that coming. I haven’t been in a union since I was a service clerk at Shop Rite when I was 16, but isn’t the point of being a union member so you can avoid things like that […]

For Sale

I’m selling some things on eBay right now, perhaps something catches your fancy.

Flash On

Adobe: Flash On – seems like the bar is being raised for online video. I’m glad to see Adobe is taking this seriously. *note – be sure to click that HD button on trailers that feature it.

The only way you can be allowed to use Powerpoint is if you replace all your slides with photos. Presentations are to be seen and heard, not read. If you can’t write something very brief […]

Russell Crowe Loves New Jersey

Are you aware of this fact? Yes, it’s a fact. He’s an actor who can have do any movie he chooses, and his focus lately keeps pointing back to the Garden State. …and why shouldn’t he love New Jersey? It’s a state rich in, well, everything. People. History. Money. You need more answers? Fuck you, […]

Yar Moothur
