I came back to a note from my computer, typed in Word...

Jenny, this is your computer talking. You haven’t been using me lately. I feel neglected. My keys are cold. I crave warmth. Why must you do this to me? What did I do to you? Other than the occasional computer crash, I have done nothing but your orders. Lets work this out. It doesn’t have to be this way. You know those little paper notebooks won’t last. They’ll run out. Fill up. I won’t. You can always create a new document, a new layout, use a new typeface. Please. I don’t ask for much other than to get some sleep at night and be turned off every once and a while. Besides, I love staying up late working with you. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Is this real??

Cool, but I wish it was longer and more substantial

HP - invent from Tom and Matt on Vimeo.
Response to D&AD Student Awards brief set by Hewlett Packard.
Def. cooler than what Cedrick and I came up with when we were doing the same brief 9 months ago, but isn't the right product. (HP Workstation is a specific type of computer, not a printer.)  And it's not clear what the payoff is.  Do these printers produce more pages per ink cartridge?  Are they cheaper than Epson's but just as good? 
Since coming to the Circus, I've def. learned to look deeper than just  doing "something cool."  What's the big idea? What are you ultimately trying to say about the product?  It needs to be clear and creative.  Story of my life.

People are awesome

So someone said I should start writing more in here...

instead of just posting pictures and videos. But I can't help it. I'm a visually-driven person. I do, however, appreciate the art of writing, though I don't consider myself good at it.

Anyways, so today I went to see my mother graduate for her second masters degree. I pretty much loath graduations. They are one of the most boring things I can imagine doing. Sitting through a ridiculously long ceremony, just to briefly see a friend or loved one walk across a stage, hear their name called out over a sound system. I hate subjecting people to such torture on my behalf. I'd rather not even be there myself when I'm the one receiving the degree. But alas, the things we do for the ones we love.

I think besides the absolute boredom and seemingly endless time frame of these ceremonies, my absolute biggest pet peeve is the complete disrespect people show during the event. I'm specifically talking about this whole scenario where the school is calling out names, rapid-fire, as people sprint across the stage, shaking hands left and right, trying to get through 300 names in less than an hour. They ask at the beginning of the ceremony that you hold all applause and cheering til the end of the procession, so that all names can be heard and blah blah blah.

But every single time I have endured one of these events, there are always those asshole people that insist on cheering when their loved one's name is called out. It ranges from a solitary "Whoo!" to a whole ghetto scream-fest. I can't help it, but it pisses me off to no end. The idiocy shown by these people, who insist on showing their family pride, or defying all authority just to do whatever the hell they want, just to show they can. It makes me so mad. Every person in the audience is sitting there, waiting for one minuscule collection of seconds, just to hear that name called out. It's the one second that makes the whole endeavor worthwhile. And these jerks insist on making some people, who've sat there for hours, miss their one moment, drowned out by "That's my baby!" or "Hell yea!"

Stupid jerks. Learn from respect. Like your family-member who just earned their degree, grow a brain.


And yay Mom! I'm so proud of you!

And some wonder why I have no pride for my state....

I want this in my future house.

It can double as the living room too.  Just throw in a nice tv and a super comfy couch.  (And lots of window seat/reading nooks).

This movie still looks like it's going to be amazing...

Seems like it's going to be pretty serious too.  I can't wait!
