Comforting Static In The Channel

June 6th, 2011 by


Familiar? Somehow comforting? Yes.

Comforting like an old shirt.

This tangent leads to this:

Jawbox playing "Static" live, 1992-02-15 in Houston, TX.

And back to this:

Anamanaguchi playing "Airbrushed" live.

Synopsis: Distortion is not a bad thing.

Innovation Equals Two Swords As One

April 18th, 2011 by

Innovation is where you find it inside one's self.


This is "Ni-Ten-Ichi-Ryu (2 Swords Technique)" by Photek.

The song and video are inspired by the famed warrior Miyamoto Musashi's technique and koryƫ.


There are two explicit things to take away from this video:

1.) You can innovate as quickly as you can think of it.

2.) Sword-fighting sequences are awesome.

Bring The Gold. [Do you know what today is?]

March 17th, 2011 by

From beloved animator Brad Neely comes this important treatise on St. Patrick's Day -- or as we call it: Amateur Drinkers' Night.

As an aside to Pat: It's easy to say you chased the snakes out of Ireland when there weren't any there to begin with.
