Crowd

There’s a lot of different skateboardings but they all just make me want to go skateboard.

20110118

My friend Nick used to put art on eperil. Now he puts art on paper and canvas and the internet.

20100713

Skateboarding is fun.

20100527

How did I not know Trans Am has a new record?

20100518

Remember M.U.S.C.L.E. men? Millions of unusual small creatures lurking everywhere indeed.

20100429

So many neat things being built for smart browsers, 0 to 255 and CSS Desk among them.

20100420

Putting the video back in skateboard photo sequences.

20100404

Pretty convinced The Brutalist Bricks is the best Ted Leo + Rx record yet which is neat as they still seem to be picking up popularity at the same time. Fantastic show touring for it as well despite some technical difficulties.

20100328

Saab is the one that is “built on jet engines” or something right? Best ever.

20100315

Time well spent. OK Go has a new video and pulled a Weezer with it.

20100303

Canvas vs SVG web editors. Like Photoshop vs Illustrator.

20100207

Lady Gaga discussion and a Murder at Sea plug on the Insophisticate.

20100205

It’s nice when art depicts space.

20100119

I like rock n roll. I like posters. I like printing presses. Died Young, Stayed Pretty.

20100109

I miss Echoes. Osmos is pretty rad though. Thanks CDM.

20091224

More punk rock than your punk rock posters: hip hop posters.

20091208

Synth Brittania. Shame the last part isn’t available in my country without location spoofing. Though, the first half seems way better anyway.

20091206

Italy. 50s. Police. Motorcycles. Fun.

20091202

How to pronounce M-O-O-G, by Bob Moog. Or the Tegan and Sara version.

20091127

I’m not really into sports, but this sports team name poster looks neat. If only it came in more megapickles.

20091127

An old fart reminiscing. Leave me alone. I don’t think I’ve had a conversation this good in the 3½ years at my current work. Previously they were near daily events. Sorry guys.

20091002

I get excited about the 1.5tb of external harddrive space that sits on my desk. Physical Storage vs Digital Storage

20090915

Speaking of urbanimals, bears like skateboarding too.

20090908

Finally got a hand in building a mountain website. Painful looking at pictures of snow all day when it’s 106 degrees.

20090901

Watching traffic is the new storm chasing. Google Maps just made it even better (for those of us living in a blessed location).

20090825

Awesome animation. All the way through the credits.

20090725

Those Echo Nest folks sure provide the foundation for lots of fun: Pix n Mixer and iPhone Visualizer. Totally jealous of all parties involved.

20090712

The MDC is great for documentation and now Mozilla adds another usefull resource: Tools.

20090706

Sheer volume of new features vs fast as hell. Not to say Firefox 3.5 is slow or Safari 4 lacks features.

20090609

Still surprised at the number of dollars in skateboarding.

20090510

If only these future worlds were in 1280×800. Thanks Colour Lovers.

20090428

Blasters!

20090407

Finding new music. I dig the difference clouds and why.

20090401

I sorta wish I had a euphonium. Or a tuba.

20090317

Zombi’s new record Spirit Animal is as epic as expected. Seeing as their record label gets it (splash screens excepted), you can stream the whole thing. But you should probably just stop by your favorite record store and buy it.

20090222

Oregon is 150 and OSU, Flickr and The Commons are awesome.

20090215

Holy canvas tag. Mozilla’s new web based code editor, Bespin.

20090212

Double Dragon, Watchmen style. Minutemen

20090212

Thanks NASA. Pretty much set for desktop backgrounds for the time being.

20090208

I may not be seeing a bunch of my bookmarks again. This time not because I forget about them but because they are actually gone.

20090130

Interesting to see the thought Google puts into efficient computing.

20090128

Because a Lamborghini has a lot in common with a snowboard. I’ll stick with Banana Technology.

20090125

Never heard of Travis Bean guitars before but they sure look nice.

20090118

It launched. New ISITEDesign.com. Drupal 6.

20081212

30 Ways to Die of Electrocution

20081211

Perhaps just the excuse I needed to rebuild this thing: WP 2.7.

20081210

CNN.com’s front end design and code makes me happy. Those resizing read/video tabs get me every time and external controls for Flash video never hurts.

20081207

Clean up data, real easy.

20081130

Noise noise noise.

20081116

My friend Chris likes the Phillies. Just a little bit.

20081102

Who knew sorting could be so fun? I could do this all day.

20081020

Bloglines. Apple. Come on. You guys are killing me.

20081017

Probably been around for a while, but just noticed Pencil. Which seems to more or less be an entire app built into a Firefox extension.

20081007

It makes me happy to hear there is still new stuff showing up that math doesn’t quite understand. It makes me think very little of my brain in that those new objects can even be detected and given guesses as to distance away.

20080915

This new Rock Band bass makes me glad I wasn’t able to get a bass with that color scheme.

20080908

Pretty stoked I fixed the crowd RSS.

20080827

Pretty stoked I broke the crowd RSS.

20080827

I try to pay attention to music related internet stuff yet I had no idea about any of these sites. Makes me wonder how there are enough users to make it work.

20080827

Chop off the highs, chop off the lows, then compress it.” Every day.

20080824

Robots and rayguns.

20080821

Browser sniffing server-side CSS hacks.

20080812

I certainly do approve of robots.

20080721

Trans Am better still be filling in the dates. Two days off is plenty for a Portland show.

20080706

Some wonderful looking noise makers.

20080622

All this time and all it took to make Gmail not lousy was to switch on the basic version in my user preferences. If only I would have accepted from the start that not all good things require javascript.

20080611

I was quite pleased with Wells Fargo’s new ATM UI when I first experienced it a few weeks ago. Nice to get a look into its design process.

20080609

See. Powerpoint isn’t so bad when you get to create your slides online.

20080605

Chances are you will like ten of these bands but never get a chance to see them play.

20080531

I fail to take photos once a week. Everyday for 18 years? And Polaroids? Neat.

20080521

My friends make good music. Bluebird is up for download including artwork. Now if only the documentary was on Vimeo.

20080505

Searching the Geonames. Maps are fun.

20080430

One more reason to buy a house in the city: avoid CV08: the suburb eating robot! Charming graphics too.

20080422

Apple, if Dell can get an 8-in-1 card reader nearly unnoticeably into their XPS laptops there’s no reason you can’t get one into the array of ports on a MacBook Pro. Dell, there’s no reason all your product photos have to be locked up in .swf files.

20080420

Thank goodness for that 90 second limit (and pro requirement) else I might have stop tell everyone Vimeo is the best video site.

20080408

Too busy Hobnoxing.

20080405

Sometimes I get pretty stoked on what Flash can do: Photoshop Express.

20080327

WebKit is making me smile more often than Gecko as of late. Never ending feature support. Never ending! Or maybe I’m just more aware of it.

20080319

Looks like I would have hated 12th and Burnside in 1939 too.

20080317

Producing just gets more options making decisions even more difficult to come by.

20080314

These six word reviews and observations of this years SXSW music torrent sort of make my previous years “the” and Portland tallies look silly.

20080313

Electronic music at the University of Iowa. In 1978.

20080312

Old skateboard stickers are way better than new skateboard stickers.

20080312

Nerdier than MIDI: OSC

20080308

Portland. Art. Bikes. Photos. Maps. Maps! Teams of Portland.

20080219

Go make some word associations.

20080218

Death comes ripping.

20080211

MySpace is in on the OpenSocial and it took me two days to notice.

20080207

Many apologies to all those ending up here in their quest for tax form information.

20080131

Wait. How many years did I wait for that color?

20080129

Listened to Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga today and couldn’t help but think of Keepon.

20080124

I’ve always thought bookmark webapps were pointless but I’m starting to change my mind. These might be coming through Magnolia someday.

20080105

Some Wii games I can get into.

20080102

Minesweeper in Kindle? Totally sold! Right…

20071228

My hometown, 1913

20071209

Let me guess, Songza is old news too.

20071202

Hill bombing.

20071201

Announced a while ago, but the site just launched. It’d feel dirty not to link The Email Standards Project.

20071128

Thinking about setting up a site using Indexhibit just cause. Does this sound like a tweet? It’s not.

20071125

Engineerer or designer. Design or engineer. Or the other way around. I’m not sure.

20071120

More Flickr gushing.

20071120

Goodnight, Safari 2. Should I be updating that post to mention the fact it is no longer relevant?

20071116

This video a coworker made is alright I guess.

20071108

The (clicked) Superest: Forcing click throughs by not including images in the RSS. Grrrr. I guess no daily art comes without clicking.

20071029

This one has been sitting on my desktop for a while waiting to get a listen. It’s good. Full album download of Darker My Love.

20071021

Lots of cool features to look forward to. IE, where’s yours? WebKit gets client-side DB while FF3 adds microformat juiciness.

20071021

Just another reason to favor Vimeo: HD.

20071014

I got excited about bouncing balls and paint so might as well be excited about bunnies too.

20071008

Because Portland wouldn’t be Portland with the carts.

20071004

Two new browsers, of sorts: WebRunner and Glitch Browser.

20070929

What’s better, building a custom guitar from parts or wiring up classic recording studio equipment?

20070926

Machine tags fixed? I think so. What broke? Still not sure. But a different method of searching seems to work.

20070924

Editing MySpace profiles makes me want to tear my eyes out and feed my hands to the dogs. I can’t believe people actually provide that as a service.

20070920

Flickr machine tags, why did you suddenly stop working? I’ve cleared your cache and tickled your tummy.

20070917

Graffiti/stop motion. And another.

20070917

My boomerang once landed on the roof the elementary school – first throw of the session even. Maybe if it had lights that wouldn’t have happened.

20070905

Neat for two reasons: I like the internet and it’s done in SVG.

20070903

Browsing Flickr sets to fend off the addiction as frugally as possible. Though maybe this will just result in more shaking despite the myth of it all.

20070823

Writing posts sans CSS and JS because my host can’t resolve the www. is fun. Now to blame them or WordPress for hard coding it in the admin rather than basing the path off the current URL?

20070817

The dashed line in use. Reminds me of my inability to draw.

20070813

Tacoma finally makes Seattle weak in the knees: Mono In VCF. And I like Stars because they remind me to listen to Asobi Seksu

20070807

In case anyone forgot how much of a map and microformat nerd I am, if you saw me smiling today it was probably because of Google’s addition of hCard to Google Map results.

20070731

Thanks to the 70s and skateboarding and electronica. I once had a skinny skateboard sans kicktail.

20070730

I’ve never been into eMusic but their Summer Hits list has a fist full of winners.

20070728

Extending the extensions.

20070724

Trainband. Trainband. Trainband. Trainband.

20070722

I never felt the need to get my hands on the cards, but who can resist stickers?

20070719

Somedays I wish I was a math nerd.

20070719

The best part about iPhone apps being web apps built for Safari and a small screen is I can still enjoy them even without the hardware: Movies.app.

20070717

Google one-ups tab/shift+tab. Keyboards are awesome.

20070712

Remember, if both the weekly papers tout a show as going to be awesome, don’t expect to show up at the door at show time and still be able to buy tickets.

20070707

More map envy. You can now add destinations to direction maps on Google plus drag and drop the route to different streets. So nice.

20070629

Totally missed Go Skateboarding Day because I was too busy being a nerd.

20070623

I guess this means I no longer have an excuse for things not lining up very well in the footer.

20070611

Skid Row » Sum 41 » Scorpions. Thank you Pandora.

20070605

10 Shoot Stuff
20 Die
30 Goto 10

20070531

Das not compute: overhidden: flow;

20070524

Skate Hard Retard! Dig the Anti-Sit Devices.

20070519

Because I really need another couple songs to listen to everyday.

20070517

Heard about some helpful bookmarklets for IE HTML/CSS/JS debugging at BarCamp. It really just needs its own Firebug though.

20070514

I’ve been reading a page a day for 324 days. I’m really into today’s.

20070509

Interrupted by another episode of Peter Griffin vs Chicken, complete with a Snakes on a Plane reference.

20070506

.blueLinks { color:#990000; }

20070502

[ (CSS + Reboot) / 6 months ] * 9 columns = New Matches

20070501

The White Stripes have a new song called Icky Thump. It is real good. I’d have never guessed Dinosaur Jr. to be the MySpace sort of folks.

20070428

It’s actually a bit of break dancing madness, but the timing makes La chute quite exciting.

20070427

POSH

20070421

An extra one million dollars for skateboard parks never hurt anyone. See, I told you Portland likes skateboarders.

20070417

WWII cutaway drawings via Neatorama. I can draw like that. Really.

20070414

Amazing what a little cracked pepper will do for a cracker. Mmmm.

20070409

It’s a big day for new blog designs that have something to do with changing colors. Elan3 is all new and .NET’d.

20070404

“To understand how fish stocks in the Southern Ocean are changing, scientists cunningly recruit the world’s cutest research assistants.” There’s even an OK Go reference.

20070403

I work with a bunch of rock stars. Last month we received an award for our lunar newsletter.

20070402

Interesting discussion at IndieHQ regarding a blog giving away entire albums.

20070319

Wouldn’t it be awesome if planes were coming to Portland for the beginnings of my fleet?

20070317

The episodes are almost as good as the action names. Pulverizer Fisticuffs! Still not as good as so many VW commercials.

20070310

1.618 has a spacey rocker today. Listen to it over and over while downloading 3.1gb of SXSW 2007 mp3’s. And no, I haven’t done the math on this years The bands.

20070306

Yeah. I want one. With a mini ramp outside.

20070302

Noticed this while being bummed about Flickr’s “massage”. Go Madison.

20070302

Google’s new traffic map almost makes me want to start driving more often. OK, that’s a lie. But I like maps.

20070228

Yesterday it was the steampunk keyboard. Today it’s the cardboard micro synths. Details.

20070223

Self defense. With a stick. Good tips and better images.

20070219

A half million minutes of copying is a lot of work. Glad that finished up early this morning.

20070218

Make yourself smile. Listen to MSDW by Voxtrot.

20070217

I’m excited about food lately. If the box mentions granola and/or oat clusters it’s pretty much guaranteed to destroy Tigers and Leprechauns.

20070216

Pretty design and music. Even if it does autoplay. How often I envy Flash for its background stretching abilities. Stupid CSS.

20070213

Spending $208,000 on a truck that doubles as a venue just for a crumby screamo band to play out of is a waste. I’m way more into Friends Forever version of playing out of their car.

20070211

One. Man. Band.

20070210

Neat time lapse of old Arcade games. The rest of the site is rad as well.

20070209

Pipes. Not tubes.

20070208

I need to learn to make my own chicken soup. I’ve tried every canned variety and they are all ass-strep.

20070131

I bet I will never find one of these in my mailbox. In all fairness, I bet no one will ever receive one from me either.

20070130

I’m hesitant to admit to digging anything that might be labeled prog or screamo, but sometimes The Fall of Troy rocks my face off.

20070128

The other day at work I listened to Electrelane while playing with XPath. Be sure to listen to “Love Builds Up” and “Only One Thing Is Needed” and try the examples in XLab. I love it when I think bands are new to me but then their website looks ridiculously familiar. Glad I’m not the only one that doesn’t redesign.

20070127

I once made an audio piece using only samples taken while skateboarding. Musique Concrete.

20070125

The naked people are coming to Portland this summer.

20070124

All I wanted from NAMM was new pbass colors. So far all I got is an interesting new toy from Roland. D BEAM on a guitar processor plus on-the-fly alternate tunings.

20070118

I noticed the term interCaps while reading some docs in the Songbird wiki. Turns out there are quite a few alternate terms for camelCase. NerdCaps? Wonderful.

20070118

I dig Metric. I also dig their singer on her own.

20070115

Just as IE7 starts to slowly make my job easier, Outlook 2007 makes an already frustrating (but currently very small) part of it even worse.

20070110

This was supposed to be where I link to the new 12″ MacBook Pro and comment on the hawesome new features of Leopard plus maybe an additional cool toy or two. Instead, here’s a pop song 3hive linked today.

20070109

What? Portland didn’t make the ten top tech towns? They must not have factored in the new tram.

20070105

I browsed a bit of digg: 2006 in Music on Wikipedia. Certainly a few bands I wish I could add to the disbanded list. 20 ways the world could end – I’m gunning for three, twelve and thirteen. Almost forgot: How to turn a PS comp to CSS in 30 seconds. Right.

20070102

Rather than having a single hero color for their shoes, Emerica randomly loads a featured color. To keep things cohesive, the links from the overview page to the individual shoe pages are matched to the current color. Nice touch.

20061231

One step closer to desktop-like apps in your browser. Be sure to play with the examples.

20061230

I think Supergrass has ten websites. Ahhhhh… ay ya ya.

20061228

PC World has their 20 most innovative products of 2006 list out. I used to get bummed on year end lists yet this is already the second to get linked for 2006. Wish I had known about Farecast six weeks ago.

20061227

First it was drop shadows not bombs. Now it’s drop Helvetica not Arial.

20061221

There must be at least one old gadget whose design I can steal to cobble together a wicked retro-tech theme.

20061219

Ten years of causing trouble.

20061219

I’ve been playing this page in Songbird lately. It makes me smile.

20061216

Some pretty nice free holiday clip art and not your usual free clip art style of site. Yeah WordPress!

20061215

Snowboarders are nerds.

20061213

Hot or Not for effects chains at NoiseFX. Can’t get enough of the pr0n.

20061210

A neat tool sporting clean urls to make finding CSS documentation from the W3C so much quicker.

20061207

I’m of the opinion the Firefox folks got a little carried away with their forced XML/RSS feed previews (as did the IE7 crew). It can break sites and make development more difficult. Here’s how to disable it.

20061206

That spacey robot is back with his skateboard tricks.

20061204

Paper jedi. And Emperor. And Driods. And Yoda. More Flickr!

20061202

No more excuses for developers not to run IE7. Microsoft released an IE6 Testing VPC image, good for four months.

20061201

Some nerd stuff we were talking about at work today: Joe Clark’s /. interview and his thoughts on HTML5

20061130

Opening day vs opening day. I can’t get enough Flickr.

20061127

Digging the full page design of Vail’s weekly weather forecast, especially the icons. Not digging the markup and site wide empty title element. Why am I looking at Vail’s weather in the first place?

20061126

Finding colors is fun.

20061126

I like gamma because it means new ideas are still being added.

20061122

Even though I’m not yet using it and am not working on anything that would be particularly useful as a mobile application, I find it really interesting. Current favorites for checking the mobile experience: MobiReady Report and Google.com/m.

20061121

Too much time perusing, not enough time doing: The Art of Musical Maintenance 3, CSA Images, Storytelling.

20061121

If you customize your browser to the point of disabling scripts from resizing windows, this won’t meet its potential. If not, well, witness the first good thing to ever come out of that browser method.

20061116

The Sprockettes just make me smile. So I should be smiling all weekend.

20061116

So cute. Mr. Afraid-of-Anything-but-Heights is my favorite, despite it’s beta-ish status.

20061114

What’s worse than linking to a band’s MySpace page when they have a real website? Linking to something created by Microsoft that only runs in IE and requires an ActiveX install. Regardless, Photosynth is looking rather rad. I wonder if anyone else might already be working on a less browser centric version?

20061111

Ice cream sandwiches are the new cookies. No link, just saying.

20061108

Finally a tag cloud I actually find interesting. Besides, who can resist JS sliders.

20061106

Gnarly enough to make me think “WTF?” but not gnarly enough to immediately think earthquake.

20061105

I must be getting mellow in my old age. Or it just makes for nice cold, rainy day music: Nellie McKay.

20061102

Now let’s associate all the photos and events with location and weather patterns to determine when and where legends will be made.

20061031

Now seems like a good time to claim having written Green Day’s American Idiot – in 1992. Only in Oregon.

20061028

The double comma is way more interesting than the vaporware.

20061028

I can’t get enough pop songs or computer generated art.

20061026

Another company I love to hate tries to make good. A friend of mine refers to Sparta as “The Mars Volta and At the Drive In for sissies”. Whatevs. AOL is streaming their new album. As well as The Walkmen’s.

20061024

Official release of Firefox 2.0. And unlike that other new browser installation doesn’t require a restart.

20061024

More Canadian pop bliss: Bella. Spiral Beach. The Awkward Stage. And more rock than pop: Choke.

20061021

Sony may be frustrating but they sure have pretty ads. First they did that bouncy ball thing, now this paint thing.

20061021

Why did it take two restarts and over five minutes of grinding to install the official release of IE7?

20061018

Currently watching: Deck Dogz. Noseslide underflip darkslide!

20061017

A day for fictional cities: Springfield and Urville.

20061016

Can you make it through an entire Orthrelm song? Maybe Ocrilim?

20061015

IKEA still makes rad Flash pieces. Junior Pantherz make rad rock music. Must have something to do with both being from Canada and having z’s in their name. What? Sweden? Never heard of it.

20061014

WTF

20061012

Virtual NES.

20061010

It’s pages like this that remind me how useful Songbird is.

20061008

Remember that band Sunny Day Real Estate? Jeremy (ouch, that’s a myspace link) has a new solo album out in about a week.

20061007

Google Code Search searches code. So did Koders.

20061005

They say I’m a map nerd.

20061003

Yahoo just keeps giving away code. Mashup madness!

20061001

More music you don’t have time for.

20060930

If you don’t eat Nilla Wafers, you really should. If you don’t eat Oreos, you really should. If you don’t get homemade cookies in the mail, you really should.

20060929

Like I said, the button tag really is the new black.

20060926

Damn skateboarders and their headphones. Via The Skateboard Mag.

20060925

Almost makes me wish I had a del.icio.us account to see my own habits.

20060920

Scientists are gnarly. The Inner Life of the Cell.

20060918

Where’s the halfpike? Skate or die punk!

20060916

Actually tempting. Must be drugs. And infatuation.

20060915

Homie showed me fractal hands today.

20060913

I was just discussing dirty word filters for a different site and now have cause to consider getting one for comments here.

20060913

Old skool Portland on video. Plus a nice Google Maps/YouTube mashup. And we all know I love my maps.

20060909

Stolen links from this guy’s site that I surfed from the comments on some other site: new Planes Mistaken for Stars stream (scroll down to #29 in the player) and Murder City Devils summer reunion.

20060907

It takes Dreamweaver approximately three minutes to remove 5,347 scattered instances of   from 812 lines of code. Just thought you might be interested.

20060906

My house of the future will have a mini in the backyard. And a mountain wouldn’t hurt.

20060906

This is just turning into a list of bands I’m digging here and there. Catlow.

20060901

I would have thought of skateboarding as being one of the few things proving civilization is not doomed.

20060831

The ratio of good bands to terrible bands on Epitaph looks worse every month. Heavens pushes the ratio the right direction for once.

20060830

MS’s IntelliPoint 5.5 software has a nice magnify feature for the scroll wheel on any mouse pushing Windows around.

20060829

flickr’d.

20060828

First Platinum Seagulls post their video Weekend Warriors for all to download and now Wiskate.com has all the parts from the mostly unreleased Hurry Up and Die video on YouTube: Intro, Ben Vance, Pat Forster and Bill Kaschner, Montage, Jon Bunch, Greg Lutzka, Outro. Go Midwest!

20060827

adidas has some wicked Flash going on. I suppose paying for it is why their magic shoes cost more than a good pair of skate shoes. I remember when adidas always seemed to play second to Nike in the Flash craziness.

20060826

Last night: ir77. One week: Escramble.

20060826

Simplifying all those complicated issues.

20060826

Be a deer in the Headlights.

20060823

OK Go is better than anyone at coordinated dance videos. The most recent and in case you missed the previous sensation. Ha! I just chose your video format for you!

20060821

Game Over. Stop motion using cupcakes and pizza. Also, KaBoom!

20060821

Craigslist various image 404s. Or just refresh a couple times cause they’re random.

20060818

I’m totally down for LEGOS. I mean LEGO bricks.

20060818

There’s been a number of times the past few months I’ve been bummed on Dreamhost, but it is hard to stay mad with their consistently rad blog posts.

20060817

Majafa made me listen to Kasabian’s last album and now their newest single. Type “Club Foot” into their video player after Empire finishes to see their other end-of-video assassination. Monster!

20060816

Rails is all about skateboarding.

20060815

Tables are more than welcome in snowboard parks but that’s no excuse for snowboard websites to litter their websites with them. TWSnow finally got rid of theirs. Funny, on the web I dig Rails and hate tables. In the snowboard park I often wish the rails would be replaced with tables.

20060815

Thanks adidas for the perfect knee-high ledges – some curved, some straight. And they can’t say no given how much they want skateboarders to love them.

20060813

It is good. But I’m convinced Natalie Portman can do no wrong.

20060811

With rumors that only the MacBook Pro will be seeing a processor upgrade this month and now the development of a WebKit based browser for Windows, a new laptop is looking less and less attractive.

20060810

3hive has a real rocker today.

20060809

Number two site in Google for the query “Korn is awesome“. Maybe this will boost me up a notch. Or knock me down for spamming.

20060809

Back in the days of Back Smiths for Donuts, I had my girl Hillary Duff phone my opponent for a bit of distraction. If I was knee deep in a contest now, I’d have Samuel L. Jackson on my side.

20060807

Sonic Youth DVD. You know that video where Jason Lee rides a skateboard? And the many others?

20060731

I’ve been going through gallons and gallons of milk lately. And it’s not that I’ve been eating more cereal or just drinking milk because it’s good, it’s that I’ve been eating lots of cookies. Cookies are so good.

20060731

There are enough good bands in Portland to fill an entire weekend with rock songs.

20060729

My tree dragon is DEAD!

20060728

Malajube has nice videos and the music isn’t bad either (if you only do one, make it Montréal -40° C). The website is pretty too. Except I hate mini scrollers and don’t read french.

20060727

Suburban Home Records is a cool indie/punk label in Denver, Colorado. Check out 18 free rock songs (hint: use Download Sampler link at the top to get a complete .zip file with cover art). When you’re done with that give the mixtape a try. Then go buy some CDs.

20060724

Did you know Thrasher Magazine is as old as I am? Clearly late on this one, but one issue a month from the first year is being posted online. Yeah pool shredding!

20060723

Today is Cap!ta day. This one is looking best for the size, but the quality is questionable for my ninja skills. A close second, but slightly long for, again, my ninja skills. If this one was a bit wider or my toes a bit shorter, no questions asked.

20060721

A bit of a jump on looking for this season’s replacement. Looks like they dropped my favorite size (from the non-pro model lineup) for 06/07. Balls.

20060720

I’m still afraid of flickr (for reasons including the one that apparently spawned the contest), but dang, nice work matches.

20060719

The Crowd doesn’t appear in the default RSS feed. In fact, those strictly on the RSS might not even know this exists. Suckers – totally missing out. If you do happen to notice and otherwise dig the RSS, here are some options: RSS this, RSS that, RSS everything.

20060719

My internet is a lonely place when Dreamhost goes down. Remember that power outage?

20060717

Just another skate map: Spotcovr.

20060716

From the front, I actually prefer the Dell over Apple displays – just need a piece of black tape for the logo. From the back, whole different story. If it were sitting on a desk where people actually see that side, it might almost be worth twice as many dollars.

20060716

I usually hate animated navigation, but I love the motion in this one.

20060716

HTML emails will never go away. Some more tips.

20060715

I dig the video player, but come on Sony/BMG/Epic/whoever you are, making me use IE is so pre2k.

20060715

Search WayTooCrowded
The Header Should Always Point Home
