Florida Offers Bailout to Fugitives

If you have been paying attention over the last few months you know that the United States government has been nice enough to offer a hand full out bailouts to major corporations such as General Motors. They have also been so kind as to offer the American people a little gift to help stimulate the economy. It did not work, obviously, but they sent out check after check in hopes of jolting this economy back into the black. (That is [...]

Artist Interview: 1-on-1 with I-Exist

I am here today with a hard rock band full of talent from your own back yard. Hailing from Indianapolis, they are making their way through the local scene and doing so with a force. Matching industry quality lyrics and a sound that you expect to hear coming from the radio, they have a good chance to make it in this incredibly competitive market. I have seen these guys a few times and their stage performance is spotless. Hang out [...]

Ryan Moore Turns Down a Hefty Pay Check

What would you do if someone offered you a check for $300,000? Would you invest some of it? Maybe pay off some of those credit cards that you have been putting off? Or perhaps you would get a new car or invest in a nicer apartment? Well, Ryan Moore was offered amount of money this week, but he had some stipulations that came along with it. Ryan is a member of the PGA Tour and is known for his missed fairways and his bombs off the tee. He is a [...]

From One Task to Many

Today I was spending some time reading through a few blogs and came across one from a recent connection in social media guru Douglas Karr. The article, which you can read by clicking here, talked about single tasking rather than multitasking. He stated that he is a “heads down” type of worker and that he can only focus on one project at a time. In his post he challenges you to turn off your Twitter applications, turn the phone upside [...]

Are You Ready for Some Football?

Before I even get started on this, I want to make it clear that I am not a football fan. I do not play Fantasy Football, watch it on television (except for on Thanksgiving and the Super Bowl), and I do not go to games. I live a half an hour away from one of the newest and more talked about stadiums in the National Football League and I have never stepped inside. I have no interest in a bunch of over weight men dressed in tights slamming into each other trying to make [...]

Tiger Woods Tees off at the Barclays

Here we go again. Tiger Woods is up and at them this week for the kick off of the FedEx Cup at The Barclays. Tiger is coming off one of the worst putting displays I have seen from him in a long time (he missed two putts within five feet) as well as one of the most conservative rounds I can remember him ever playing. Tiger lost to Asian sensation Y.E. Yang. Yang came in to the event having only played in seven previous majors, never making [...]

Did You Know I Could Order That Here?

When was the last time that you went out to dinner and ended up getting fast food as no one in the car could decide on a place to eat? If you are like most Americans, it has already happened at least once this week. In fact, 64% of Americans eat at a fast food (McDonald’s, Hardee’s, White Castle) at least once a week. And we wonder why we so fat. Take a look at the movie Morgan Spurlock did a few years back. He ate McDonald’s for breakfast, lunch, and dinner every [...]

The Logo Design Process

If anyone reads this post I hope that his name is Josh Corken. Josh is a fellow blogger friend of mine (I hope he makes the WordPress switch before it’s too late) and he writes nearly every single post about graphic design, 3D animation, or the latest Pixar flick. Sure, he had had some posts that did not fit this mold, but he writes this way for a reason and his following appreciates this style. So this post is dedicated to you and yours as I am going to get serious [...]

A Hotel Built for you Winos

When I first traveled outside of the United States I ended up in Paris, France. While there I stayed with my aunt who lived right downtown Paris. She was working for IBM at the time but took some time off of work to take me around and show me all the stereotypical sites and sounds of France. I saw the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, and even had the chance to witness a show at the Moulin Rouge. We even traveled to the beaches of Normandy [...]

I Will Take Your 140 and Raise You 1,000

Today I found something that is worth talking about. I know what most of you are saying out there, that I talk too much about social media and you have heard the words Twitter and tweet one too many times. But the fact of the matter is I am not planning on stopping this chatter about these social networking tools, and as time goes on I am sure that I will be talking about them even more than I do now. (Scary thought, right?) Each and ever day I am getting [...]
