I think I’d do really well as a blogger if all I did was to borrow content from Exler. So here it is, two appropriations in a row. This is Axis of Awesome with an awesome demonstration that a huge number of modern hits are written with only the same four chords. That makes me[…]
I’m far from being prolific in my blogging these days, for a great number of reasons. Instead of recounting those reasons, I’ll just borrow content elsewhere on this occasion. This clip is nothing short of brilliant. Via Exler.
Even if the assembly manual for a fairly complicated contraption explicitly states that two people are needed to successfully complete the work, a determined and resourceful individual should be able to come up with ways of achieving the desired end result all by himself. If said individual has a history of back problems directly linked[…]
I wonder how many Parisians visit Louvre more than once in their adult lives, if ever. Or Londoners National Gallery. Or Madrileños Prado. Outside of a small group of art students and fanatical art lovers, I doubt that the majority of local population ever finds time in their busy daily routines to come in and[…]
It has been almost a year and a half since I performed my review of three photo-book services (MyPublisher, Picaboo and Blurb). Since then, I did not have much time to engage in projects that would either involve any of the aforementioned services or bring me in contact with something new. And then, several weeks ago, a representative from Adoramapix reached out to me with an offer that I could not pass up: A free book in exchange for the review of their service and product.
I played around with the Adoramapix photo-book builder, created a neat highlights album of our European travels, and in the process got myself a new favorite for future photo-book-making.
One of the things that we always liked the least in Europe is the intent of people in the service sector to have lives outside of their shops. What do you mean, you are closed for three hours in the middle of the day? Are you so dumb as to lose potential customers by madly[…]
My eldest daughter seems to be the primary source of material for my blog lately. At her request, I am putting up another of her drama class projects, so that it is publicized to my considerably larger audience. The assignment was to select 3 words that either described the person, evoked a specific emotion or[…]
Becky has recently taken to riding her bike around the neighborhood. Weather being what it’s been the last few days, she obviously doesn’t wear track-suits on her rides. We live about half a mile away from a synagogue. There are some people who drive to services there, but many people walk, so on Saturdays and[…]
A friend was buying event tickets online. She typed in her credit card number and all of the required information and received the following response on the screen: Your transaction could not be completed because of Reason #2. Who designs these things, anyway?
Hello, my name is Ilya and for a pretty smart guy I must be the stupidest homeowner in the Western Hemisphere. April Fools’ Day came early this year, and, boy, did it make me feel like a fool! Remember my note about not having any water damage in the mid-March big storm? It was not[…]
