Passive resistance, like Gandhi

I bookmarked Goodie Bag so long ago (in internet time). Then they/he reinvented themselves and it is working. Even when they are clearly making fun of me (well, not really but it is fun to think the world revolves around oneself).

Watch it

(thanks Kirby)

Hollywood vs. New York

Fantastic stuff from Goodiebag.

Ticklinks: Looking in the camera

I Love Progress Bars

Kirby Ferguson can be quite insightful. I love how he uses status bars to illustrate a larger point: we (tech geeks in particular) have a problem being in the moment. Well, this is what I get out of it.

Watch it.

Protecting and Maintaining Your Heterosexual House of Cards

Smart and witty. Even if you are really a straight guy, I bet you have done some of the things described.

Watch it

Dumb and Hummer

Dumb and Hummer

Everytime I see a Hummer on the streets, I seriously want to open a can of whop-ass. And I am not a violent guy but those ugly cars get my blood boiling.

Watch it
