Nintendo did not create the semi-naked dancing girl

According to an article on Reuters, Nintendo would like the world to know they are NOT responsible for a poular viral video that shows a cute girl gyrating on a Wii Fit board in her underwear. Well, glad they cleared that up. For those unfamilar, here is the video from YouTube: It’s a fun bit ...

The best f*&ken band in the world

Well, in my world, at least. The Hold Steady, straight out of Brooklyn, via Minneapolis originally, have a new album out next month, and a new single out, well, today. I’ve been waiting for this for months, had been keeping an eye on their website … and now I’ve heard it for the first time ...

Was 1993 this important?

My first thought about 1993 was that it was my first year after high school, but I don’t remember it being this influential … in fact, 1994, being my first year of exposure to the Internet (or probably more 1995), seems far more important to me. But Wired, in a further effort to play up ...

Don’t look at the site I work on, Charlie

Charlie Stross makes a post, that while by his own admission is a rant, it’s a pretty astute look at the state of web publishing and the attendant bloat surrounding online content and its related advertising and delivery technology. He wonders why 950 words of text can be surrounded by nearly 1mb of images, javascript, ...

Let’s see now …

Another tough one today. Still not getting into the writing as I’d like to, and there’s no one to blame but myself. I know that. Clear skies again fortunately, but it’s suddenly got really cold … insanely so for only April. Hate to see what it will be like in July. Then again, it might ...

Logos and musical intelligence

The job goes on nicely, and the bad weather goes on not so nicely. So some different things: A nice story today that goes into the behind the scenes details of how the unique production company logo is created for the end of every episode of Battlestar Galactica. It’s starting its 4th season in the ...

Wii Day

Finally the family has a new game console, for the first time in eight years. And it’s my first ever Nintendo system. Finally, we have a Nintendo Wii in the house. So naturally, not much else to say here because we played Wii all night. I didn’t get home until later because I was out ...

Ready for anything

I realised today that I’m already doing so much more than I ever did at my own job with the new Penthouse gig — and it’s only been three days. Spent this afternoon working on video editing, and it was kind of unsatisfying, but should be fixed tomorrow morning. Don’t know if I’m just unfamiliar ...

Converting your Blogger blog to WordPress: the help you need

Just last week I finally worked out how to convert my blog, which had been on Blogger for years (but always self-hosted), to WordPress, on my own dedicated web server. I did it with a method that many people no doubt know about, but it was not one that I read about at all. In ...
