  1. Julie Cola Shen's Time Capsule: 50 Reasons not to Date a Photographer


    Was inspired to write one of these hehe.

    1. They rather hold their bulky camera, than hold hands with you.
    2. On a romantic date, you’ll watch the sun go down and think “Wow this is gorgeous” and they’ll go “mirror lock, tripod, and stop down f/8 at 1/125.”
    3. You’ll never…

  3. Kid Gets Copy of Skyrim Stolen Out of Hands 5 Feet Outside of Gamestop

    “Young man… I just hope one day you’ll do something equally nice for someone.”


    I just got back from the midnight release of the game, Skyrim. There was a 13 year old boy there. He walked out of the store with his fresh copy and, about 5 feet out the door, some shit-eating douchebag swiped it right out of his hands and ran with it.

    On September 19th, I said goodbye to my trusty MacBook Pro and started developing exclusively on an iPad + Linode 512. This is the surprising story of a month spent working in the cloud.

  13. So Oxytocin is the reason for why we empathize with other people, creatures and ideas? Interesting.

So don’t forget to SMILE (and mean it) everyday :-)
