Wired posted a nice article about a couple of guns that you can make out of standard office equipment. Well, maybe that ping pong ball shooters parts aren’t so standard, but either way, it reminds me of the guns on OfficeGuns.com. Check out Wired’s article here or on the pictures below and definitely make sure you check out Office Guns, too, those ones are more powerful.
Saw this over the weekend and though it was kind of funny. Let me try to paraphrase the story, Ivar Hugland, who died at the age of 79 in the mid 80’s, owned a restaurant called Ivar’s. Ivar was referred to as “the greatest self-promoter in the history of Seattle.” Anyway, one of his exploits from the 50’s was just recently discovered, at the bottom of Seattle’s Puget Sound. They were underwater billboards. Who the hell is scuba diving in the Puget Sound, and especially in the 1950’s? I’m not sure that this is really a great self-promotion stunt, but either way, it’s interesting to think that there were some “outside of the box” thinkers back then.

Not sure if everyone that’s reading the blog these days was around for the original Puckulence entry, or for the one about us being number 1 on Google for the work Puckulence. Either way, we’re back again with another dose of Puckulence. This time in typeface form. Thanks to the website Font Capture, all I had to do was print out a form, fill in all the letters, scan it, upload it and the website makes a font for you in about 5 seconds. So now all of you out there that wish you could be a little more Puckulent, this typeface is for you. (you know, right click and hit “save as”)
Typeface coming soon: Cabulence (maybe?)

True Blood seems to be quite a hit for HBO, as half my Facebook friends seem to be constantly posting something about it. Anyway, I just stumbled across this poster for the show and thought it was worth sharing.
Sometimes I realize that I have little-to-no knowledge of certain subjects. For example, lacing a shoe, I had never thought of any other way to lace a shoe other than the “Display” style. Look at all these new options I now have.
This article on Ad Age seems to be making it’s rounds, but it’s an interesting story. I think the headline and the visual is enough to explain it.
