Oh Michelle! Visits Stonehenge!
My friend, Michelle, sent me some of her film from her trip through Europe and asked me to develop it. Looks like her most recent visit was to the legendary Stonehenge! …. … … How did she not… the explosions….the noise… We need to get her a digital camera. ~Andrew
Sweet Hollow Road
Last night Jen and I took a trip down Sweet Hollow Road in Huntington. This road is supposedly haunted. Wanting to experience the tales for ourselves we went and checked it out. There are numerous legends about what happened at the underpass of the Northern State that are correlated with Sweet Hollow Road. The 1st urban legend of Sweet Hollow Road is that awhile ago 3 boys committed...
Teacup Yorkie or Dr. Pepper Yorkie?
Brittany and I have wanted a puppy of our own for months now. Mother will not allow it. Yes, it is true. Our own mother, who is married to a chief financial officer of a pet company, will not allow a small, adorable creature in our home. There are puppies out there for free. FREE. Their own owners may be moving or just meanies and want to abandon their own pride and joy. What has the world come...
Oh Michelle! Postcards from Around the World!
This is the first in a new series I will be doing call: Oh Michelle! As you can see, they will be pictures Michelle takes on her trips abroad, but completely oblivious to what’s going on in the background. Special thanks to my friend Michelle who is graciously letting me use her pictures while she travels Europe! Next week: Michelle’s trip to Stonehenge! ~Andrew
Greg just called me to remind that I have a busy night ahead and to not forget about posting (which I did). I feel like I’ll have to be nice when choosing a picture the next time he forgets to post. Oh wait. He NEVER forgets. Way to be. Anyway, um, social media and stuff. It’s cool because you get to watch people fight publicly: Oh Molly and your teen angst. Again Andrew, your...
Tony Bennett. I don’t care what kind of music you like to listen to, don’t like to listen to — your opinion is shattered when it comes to Mr. Tony Bennett. This 85-year-old musical sensation is still living the dream. He has won 15 Grammy’s, 2 Emmy’s, is a member of the Hollywood Walk of Face, the Big Band and Jazz Hall of Fame, and has been honored with a...
Three Ways to Get a Job in the Great Recession
It’s tough out there. If you’re reading this blog, chances are you’re young, which means it’s even tougher. The unemployment rate among those under 25 is several times higher than it is for everyone else. Many find it hard to hold on to hope. Luckily, there are some tools at your disposal. These three tools won’t guarantee you a job, but I’ve seen them work consistently. 1. Get...
Combining 2 Things I Love: Dr Who & Logo Design
Ok so a few months back I got hooked on the BBC sci-fi show Dr Who. It’s been around since 1963 and is technically still the same show with new episodes airing each Saturday night. No I have not watched every season since the beginning, but I have seen everything since 2005 when the show came back on the air after being taken off in 1996(ish?) Anywho the shows been around almost 50 years...
I’ve been trying to write music lately. ...
Somewhat of a Stress-Reliever
I came across this while on my own personal tumblr. It’s actually pretty cool and it worked for me. If you have patience, I would definitely try it. I know this is not a long post but I really want you to try out this site. It’s very refreshing and helpful, especially during stressful times. It’s also really nice to go back and visit from time to time when you need a small break...
On Wednesday, Brittany pointed out (fairly) that I can get a wee bit cranky sometimes. This post is all about my best efforts at thwarting that tendency. High on the list of tragedies of modern life is our excessive apathy. The monotony of life dulls our consciousness to the miracle of existence, and we lose our ability to feel wonder. It’s important, I think, to remind ourselves every now and...
Hey I'm a Graphic Designer!
So what do I hear every Friday from my family? “You’re a Graphic Designer! Why didn’t you post some of your stuff? Where’s the art? How do you get your hair to look so good?!” SO FINE. This week I will post some designs from my portfolio to appease my siblings. Most will fall along the same theme, because they’re concept mock ups from my job. So yeah here we...
Songs For The My Siblings
Two weeks ago Andrew posted the top 5 things he refuses to do for women. This includes holding her purse or taking her shopping. I hypothetically posed the question to Andrew “What if she asks you to hold it for her while she goes to use a public restroom” Andrew’s response was somewhere along the lines of “Well, she thought it was important enough to bring in the first place, she can figure out...
Tuesdays have become crazy in my nazy (crazy in my nasal cavity) so I’m gonna just introduce you to F*ck Yeah Headlines. Everyday this guy Eric finds a headline and illustrates the article without reading it. Here are some: Good job Eric and stuff! Check out his blog for more of the same. Now back to homework…. - Joe
The Labor Day Weekend From Hell
I currently work at American Eagle Outfitters in our local mall. This weekend we had a sale for “40% everything in the store”. This basically translated to the customers as “Come to our store to shop and feel free to rip apart everything to find several items you don’t need and then complain that you can’t combine it with your 20% coupon so that you would get 60% off...
Hufflepuff, the Best House at Hogwarts
Warning: the following comes off as pedantic and pseudo-intellectual. Unfortunately, it’s late, and I don’t have time to write something else. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. *** Not too long ago, and for reasons I can’t remember, Andrew and I were discussing the four houses of Hogwarts, and where he would be sorted were he to attend. I’ve known my brother all his life and most of mine, so it didn’t take...
Worst. Analogy. EVER.
Sometimes it’s hard to describe what you mean to say in a creative way. And some times it’s VERY difficult. Here are some true examples of horrible analogies used by high school students in actual papers. Some aren’t even analogies… The little boat gently drifted across the pond exactly the way a bowling ball wouldn’t. Russell Beland, Springfield From the attic...
