A (great, awesome) freelance client sent me a Mino Flip HD for Christmas. Just trying it out at the Zoo Lights the other night.
Client: I already know what I want for the logo. It’s a house, with a face, and it’s on wheels with an exhaust pipe coming out of the back which is shooting out smoke in the shape of dollar signs.
Stewart gets the last word in the FOX/White House tussle
This is fucking amazing. It’s stuff like this that makes you realize how much effort Apple puts into the little things.
If you have a folder that is named “Round 1”, and you Option + Drag/Drop to duplicate it, the new folder will automatically be named “Round 2”. Do it again and you’ll have “Round 3”.
Editor’s note: Can anyone test this in pre-Snow-Leopard versions of Mac OS X? I’m not sure whether this is exclusive to 10.6.
Update: One commenter reports this works in 10.5.8 Leopard.
My school newspaper column was called Cognitive Dissonance.
Senior year at ‘nutrition’. Bouncing Souls Hoody, dress code violating beanie and an overall shitty attitude. I was kicked out of my drama class this year. I also had a newspaper column called DISSIDENT DISPATCHES.
I had 54 tardies to my first period (photography) and was not allowed to walk at my graduation. I slept in that morning and then drove to the beach — which is the best way to spend your high school graduation.
A boy was reported to be in a home-made balloon that was sailing thousands of feet in the air at over 20 miles an hour. When the balloon landed, the boy was not found to be where everyone had assumed he’d be.
The worst was feared, that he’d fallen out. Shortly after contemplating this, the next answer was that maybe he was scared for letting the balloon go and had hidden, or that the entire thing was a publicity stunt by an admittedly eccentric family.
I got very sad when I heard the latter, not because I felt it was true, but because I didn’t like the truth of how quickly our society jumps to that kind of conclusion. “HOAX” they scream. “PUBLICITY STUNT” they yell, and turn it into a media circus, either way.
I guess I don’t believe it was a PR stunt or anything of that sort, because, well, I like to think people are better than that. I’m probably wrong.
But I think I’d prefer to be the kind of person who’s wrong about this kind of thing than to be the kind of person who’s right about it.

It’s astounding that Stewart can bang out a spot-on, devastating critique like this and CNN can still be on the air, blithely doing the same god damn thing the next day. In a rational world, the network would shrivel up and die from pure shame.
Fantastic, amazing work by the Daily Show. Why is cable news still legal?
