Tippexperience Ad is Impressive

You seriously just have to watch this thru and then check out the crazy interactivity of this advertisement. Just wow. I went through as many years as I could. Even to year zero. Now it is a cool ad but I personally am not one to need whiteout tape, cool either way.

Mars in a Minute

I love these series of videos. I wish I had them when I was in school.

Eye-of-the-Beholder Celebrity Status

This further proves that Americans just love the idea of celebrity with no basis. I know I am not that old but I remember my dad’s generation of actors actually had talent and ability. This means we really need to adjust our focus. I mean really bugged by the girl at the end… Really?!? Just wow.

Overseas Ads Are Amazing. Period.

I feel like advertising agencies overseas get to have a lot more fun than they do in the US. Maybe its all the restrictions or litigation that would occur from some of these things.

Childhood Passion: Legos

I had a great time with some good friends building out a Lego Shuttle the other day. I challenge anyone to just take some time one day and return to a childhood hobby. It definitely soothes the soul. Unless you are stuck looking for a 1×1 post that is critical to the fuselage of the ship.

What is a blog?

image

What is a blog? Something I am constantly tinkering with and improving. A place for all my public ideas. A digital footprint in the cyber world letting everyone know I was here. A blog adds simple credibility to thoughts by allowing them to be “published” and “timestamped” (although both those are slightly amorphousin the blogosphere). To some others a blog is a personal journal. What are your thoughts? Share in the comments.

New WordPress App

I might be late to the game on this but the new android app for Word press is very nice. I think I might take all of my photos, links, and resources from Twitter and put it on here instead. This way I have the option of microblog or full blog.

Project Delta: Saddleback Leather

Dark Coffee BriefcaseI have been looking longingly at Saddleback Leather since my friend Scott Mcdaniel suggested them on his site, Babygotmac.com. I am a bit of a bag junkie owning several different laptop bags and carriers and most are not your off the shelf of Best Buy or Target kind of bags. One backpack I have is a Mil-Spec Ranger 3-day ruck bag with inserts for 3L hydration pack, 4 AR magazine pouches, 1 NVG pouch, and GOBS of other pockets and strapping. Now though this bag is perfect for prepping for any upcoming Zombie apocalypse it is a bit of overkill in the board room (I still rock it from time to time though). I then got a sleeker Kenneth Cole Reaction leather briefcase in black that seemed more fit for the corporate settings I work in. Sadly though it didn’t have the volume I need for all my gadgetry. All the while the Saddleback offering was in the back of my mind. Well when I put a bug in Scott’s ear he was gracious enough to let me try out his, in the hopes I might buy his. I think he did it also because he knew I would be smitten. The full grain leather, heirloom quality construction, and just a rugged yet sophisticated look has me completely won over. It definitely wins up to the company’s tag line: “They’ll fight over it when your dead” because right now I can’t picture me having any other bag at all.
