Yeah, Obsessed With High Fives

August 28, 2009

I don’t know why, but to me, high fives are the best thing in the history of ever. I’m pretty sure that if you spoke to any co-workers, friends, acquaintances or strangers I pass drunkenly in the street, they would tell you my obsession with high fives borders on unhealthy. At the very least it’s in the realm of fucking annoying.

Anyways, the whole point is that I love high fives. And I totally should have come up with this t-shirt like, generations ago. Ugh, I’m so pissed with myself.

High Five to the Face

Sometimes you see a project that is just so simple in it’s creation and execution that you get a little upset for not having thought of it yourself. Like this project by designer Ed McGowan, who has started taking awesome photos of his son’s toys.

But the last several weeks of my life have been ridiculous and hectic. But posting will resume at a real time sometime soon. Maybe even this week!

I Never Thought I’d Say This

July 2, 2009

But this Taco Bell commercial speaks to my soul in a way that even most organized religions would fail to do.

I hate filling out my timesheets, too. IT’S LIKE THEY KNOW ME!

Best. Present. Ever.

I’ve never had as much difficulty shopping for someone as I do when I shop for my father. He never wants anything. Or if he does, he asks for socks or golf balls. But a man only needs so many socks on this planet before he has to look for other uses, like puppetry or…”personal” rags.

You know. I wasn’t even going to that gross, awful place until I wrote this post. I blame you guys.

So to show Dad that I love him more than socks and golf balls, I’m thinking of getting him a kickass, wall-mounted, dead squirrel.


The website says that the taxidermist can “mount any squirrel in just about any position or style” with “vintage items”, which almost sounds like a dare to me. Like he’s positioning himself as the Michelangelo of squirrel carcass posing, and he’s just waiting for his own Sistine Chapel to come along. Because I could totally come up with some crazy themed positions for a dead squirrel that would be like, the artistic challenge of a lifetime for this guy.

But this isn’t about me and my goals. It’s Father’s Day 2K9.

So a golfing squirrel with a little bag and goofy hat and polo shirt would be awesome, right? And you know that the dad who receives a taxidermy themed gift for Father’s Day is going to remember that day for the rest of his life.

So yeah. Welcome to the best gift idea since they came out with greeting cards that have cash holders built into them. Rick’s Custom Squirrels is your new passion.

WTF Is This?

If anyone wants to caption this slash let me know what the hell is going on, I’d love you forever.

This Blows My Mind

June 4, 2009

So the woman who created this [ps I’m obsessed with you now, Avoidant Consumer aka Sarah] had this on her blog. The guy from The Rotten Tomatoes Show on current is John Krasinski’s twin!


Do you know what this means?!

My chances have doubled.

Any excuse to fist bump everyone that enters my life today is a good excuse. Thanks, Obama!

High Fives To This

May 27, 2009


I met Heather Armstrong at SXSW in 2006. We were on a bus together coming back from the Interactive Festival’s kick off party. I was drunk and went up to Heather, her husband Jon and their friend Maggie and asked them where they were headed next. It was like the head of the chess team asking the football team if they could hang.

I got denied.

Also I was sloshed and possibly have video of Heather on a bus and me yelling “That’s Heather from Dooce!” so I’m sure those factors didn’t help sway the vote in my favor.

So yeah. Long story short, this lady is the shit. Proof in the picture.
