I had a pretty decent

I had a pretty decent day at work today. Got a lot done, and I had planned on spending tonight trying to work more on Stu’s new website. On top of that, I had a decent idea for a poem, and wanted to try to scribble for a little bit, before I settled down to work in Flash. Only… after…

Any Requests?

My friend Juliet runs a blog called The Daily Apple. There, she researches topics that interest her, writes up a synopsis and provides links to additionl sources of info. A site filled with “little nuggets of information.” Currently, she’s got an open call for anyone to submit potential topics. Did I mention that Juliet has a Master’s in Library Science?…

Cropchecker: Valhalla Ballroom

This weekend, I’m flying in to Columbus, OH, for the CD Release party for Cropchecker. Two good friends of mine (Mike and Matt) are in this band, and I can’t wait to see the show. They’re both excellent writers and musicians, and this will be the first time I’ve seen them perform together. I have nothing but great admiration for…

Check out this great

Check out this great webcam time-lapse of the demolition that’s happening over at the Sun-Times building. Persist works in the IBM building next door, and they set up a camera to capture all the activity. Keep an eye out for the snow as it builds, and also look for the fire that broke out on December 29th (look to the…

Late day

Stuck around the office until around 9-ish with Justin and Kashif. Made some progress I’m actually happy about for the music testing project I’m working on. Afterwards, I hopped over to Inner Town with Justin for a few drinks. Happened to see Cammie there, and shot a few games of pool (I wasn’t really on top of things tonight, though)….

No Ice, No Dice

Walking outside, I half-imagined that the landscape would be covered in a thin coat of ice, streetlamps glinting off of every treebranch. And although it was raining while I was walking towards the bar, apparently nothing much has happened so far. Ah well. Maybe when I wake up tomorrow morning, there will be more evidence of this ice storm. Until…

Inner Town Pub

The Inner Town Pub: a good place to make plans. Hung out with Justin for a bit. And we’re not sitting for 20 minutes before we see Will and Melanie show up. And then, as we’re trying to relocate… Howard joins the mix. All five of us hang out for a bit, swapping stories about old 1980’s sit-coms, charades, and…

Free Drink Coupon

Heading over to meet up with Justin for a few drinks. If you’re in the neighborhood, swing on by and say hello. Mention this blog, and receive a free drink! Sorry. Bit of a silly mood. There’s been talk of a potential ice storm tonight. So it could go either way. Maybe some interesting pics. Maybe me falling on my…

This morning, on the Blue

This morning, on the Blue Line, I was listening to my iPod. Standing on the train, as we bumped along underground… the whole train caused people standing up to shake a little bit, back and forth. For the briefest of moments, it seemed as though everyone was dancing in synch the music playing in my head. For just a few…

Slowwwwwww

Didn’t get nearly as much done as I had hoped today. I spent some time working on Stu’s new site, but very little actual progress. I was really wanting to make more headway on his site today, as all next week is going to be a nasty one at work, I think. A few of us are shooting for a…

Found Magazine Reading, Intuit

Found Magazine Reading, Intuit Gallery. If you haven’t seen this yet (or don’t know Found Magazine), go check out this entry right now. Hell, I was there and I can’t stop going back and re-watching the video of Davy showing off all the found objects. Great stuff! Shaking it up at the annual Martini Party at Cathie’s.

Clubfoot, Meh

Cabbed it back to Ukranian Village with Justin, and stepped in to Clubfoot… where they were having some kind of drink special from 9-1, and were going to be open until 3AM. We walk in right around 1, and the place is still packed. More so than I’ve ever seen. We end up running in to Pogo (who I haven’t…

The Girls

As we were making our way out, I walked by the couch where Cathie and a bunch of her friends were getting a photo. Cathie yells out at me, and asks if I want a picture of a bunch of hot girls on my website. Well, I don’t need to be asked something like that twice. Right before this, Justin…
