So, this is pretty cool. You can use this new feature of GoogleTalk to let people chat with you live vie your own website...without paying somebody for the privilege. Dig it. It even tells you whether or not I'm online.

So, the strike sucked. We all know it. Everything sucked for those of us who actually watch TV...as opposed to the intellectual snotty bastard most of you imagine me to be. Well, aside from shitty half-assed reality shows that got green-lighted in the absence of real programming, there was at least ONE show that took advantage of the gap created by the lack of "good" programming that is actually worth watching. Well, I think so anyway. Check it out:

So, Hulu is cool. It's letting me embed The Jerk in my Web Site! There are a few ads...but it's the whole damn movie, and I don't think it's edited, so don't watch it if you are easily offended by things that are, you know, funny.

I don't have much to say, but it's been awhile since I've posted anything. The last two weeks have been rather spring like. Even my crocus is blooming. I'm ready to start planting some seeds inside and hope that some of them live to see the outside. I haven't had any luck in the past. Maybe this year I'll remember to water them.

So, I was working on this logo yesterday and, when I dragged it from one side of the artboard to the other I was struck by the coolness of the process. You see, when you draw a vector-based piece of art you are really building a geometric model that treats colors and transparency as values. The end result is that you can build complicated, detailed, shaded, translucent illustrations with an economy of information.
The absolutely brilliant simplicity of these documents is truly only experienced when you look at the information side by side with the end result.
Also - This is why I am awesome and can make 3D Logos with shading, alpha transparency and shading that work at .25" and 25'.
