Messy Desk Contest – WOW Link

The gang over at GIZMODO Decided to ask people to send in some shots of their messy desks. And WOW are these some bad setups. Most need more than a trash can, and even more need cable keepers and a dumpster. Check out the link and the pictures. This will make the people that are only KINDA messy feel good, and make the OCD Crowd go off the cliff.

Quick Snack Break – Cool Vid!

Everyday my routine is pretty much the same pattern that I can get out of the house in less than an hour. This guy has a pattern that is hard to beat.

Now on line – Project Gutenberg – The Devil’s Dictionary, by Ambrose Bierce

The Devil’s Dictionary, by Ambrose Bierce
Project Gutenberg EBook

AUTHOR’S PREFACE
The Devil’s Dictionary was begun in a weekly paper in 1881, and was continued in a desultory way at long intervals until 1906. In that year a large part of it was published in covers with the title The Cynic’s Word Book, a name which the author had not the power to reject or happiness to approve. To quote the publishers of the present work:

“This more reverent title had previously been forced upon him by the religious scruples of the last newspaper in which a part of the work had appeared, with the natural consequence that when it came out in covers the country already had been flooded by its imitators with a score of ‘cynic’ books—The Cynic’s This, The Cynic’s That, and The Cynic’s t’Other. Most of these books were merely stupid, though some of them added the distinction of silliness. Among them, they brought the word ‘cynic’ into disfavor so deep that any book bearing it was discredited in advance of publication.”

Meantime, too, some of the enterprising humorists of the country had helped themselves to such parts of the work as served their needs, and many of its definitions, anecdotes, phrases and so forth, had become more or less current in popular speech. This explanation is made, not with any pride of priority in trifles, but in simple denial of possible charges of plagiarism, which is no trifle. In merely resuming his own the author hopes to be held guiltless by those to whom the work is addressed—enlightened souls who prefer dry wines to sweet, sense to sentiment, wit to humor and clean English to slang.

A conspicuous, and it is hoped not unpleasant, feature of the book is its abundant illustrative quotations from eminent poets, chief of whom is that learned and ingenius cleric, Father Gassalasca Jape, S.J., whose lines bear his initials. To Father Jape’s kindly encouragement and assistance the author of the prose text is greatly indebted.

Terrible Movie, So bad it is funny

How poorly acted? So bad you won’t understand until you see the trailer!
How bad a music score? It quits while it is ahead!
Hard to understand accent? What? I’d say he’s from Armpitistan!

Let the laughter begin! THE ROOM

Supreme Sound – Charlie Daniels

Another great of music. Favorite sound, and great live performance, not lip sync, but REAL. I’ve put Charlie Daniels on here a few times, and I would tell everyone not to miss a chance to see him in concert.

Amazing Short Film

Apparently the regular filming was 1 day, but the special effects took nearly 2 years to complete. Fantastic futurist vision of how graphic design may be in the future. A real merge of the MIT Device I posted a few days back from the TED Conference THAT POSTING CLICK HERE and the futuristic stuff from movies like “Minority Report”. MINORITY REPORT WIKI LINK CLICK HERE .

Enjoy it, this is fantastic!
