New Death Cab For Cutie




MTV is giving us a sneak peak (a stream of the entire album) at Plans, the upcoming Death Cab for Cutie release. I've been listening to it all day. A bit different from their older stuff; some would probably say more mainstream, commercial, whatever. I actually like it better.

Adobe After Effects

Does anyone have After Effects or some Mac program that can do the same work?

Everyone's Favorite Topic

The French sometimes refer to an orgasm as "la petite mort" or "little death" - you know those French, so morbid - alluding to that all too brief out of body experience. Beautiful Agony is a website dedicated to catching this moment on film, and collecting your $14.95/month subscription fee (yes, there are free samples). Regular folk video themselves in the act and submit it to Beautiful Agony. The chosen few are placed on the site (and paid!). You can't see what they're doing, though it's often obvious; you just see their faces - their O face if you will.

You gotta love the Internets!

Update: you might want to hit mute before you try the sample below. The audio is NSFW for most of us.

Software KVM Switch

Teleport PR3

With teleport, you can use one keyboard and one mouse to control multiple Macs on a local network. Instead of a hardware KVM switch, teleport uses a clever bit of software engineering that works much like screen spanning. You install and activate teleport on each Mac; then you arrange the virtual displays on the master computer. When you move the mouse cursor off the edge of one screen, it moves onto one of the others–you can then use your mouse and keyboard as if they were connected to that computer.

Price: Free

Postcard From NY

Hello gang and greetings from NYC. Just got back to the hotel [blogging via internet TV is kinda cool] after playing the part of Midwestern tourist for a while. My meeting with these guys went very well, although I felt like a little boy dressed up in his dad's clothes and I expected Ashton Kutcher to burst into the room at any moment to tell me I'd been Punk'd.

I expressed my enthusiasm for working with Modern Bride or Lucky, but once they learned that I've already lived through The Devil Wears Prada, they think I might do well at Vogue. Well, we'll see what happens. As I've said I'm not getting my hopes up.

I'm meeting a friend here at the hotel [where I just learned you can actually buy a condo - fuck me] for a drink and then we're off to do a little shopping and on to dinner in the Meatpacking District.

I'll be back in T-town tomorrow. - TTFN

Pussycat Mashup

DJ Earworm gives us his take on this summer's guilty pleasure - namely "Don't Cha" by the eponymous Pussycat Dolls. He scrambles up PCD with a little Newcleus and Marvin Gaye for even more fun: Don't Cha (Wish Your Cyborg Could Dance Like Me).

Mashups are typically a mixed bag. Some folks are incredibly good at it though. Earworm is one of these people - he knows music and he has a great sense of humor. I'm still in love with his "Stairway to Bootleg Heaven" mashup combining Dolly Parton's send up of the Zeppelin classic with the likes of The Eurythmics, Pat Benatar and the Beastie Boys. And Scissor Sisters fans must check out "No One Takes Your Freedom" (which works incredibly well) and "We Need a Filthy War."

I feel that Whiskey Wednesday has become so popular we should start marketing it more. So I've developed a package design once we make our own whiskey. Tell me what you think. Later we will work on flavor, any ideas.

HP Photosmart TV Ad

For those of you who enjoy the HP Photosmart TV ad that highlights the guy freezing photos of himself, NBC Dateline ran a story about “how did they do that?” The video clip is really fun and available for viewing until 8/8/05.

Get Behind "National Anal Sex Month"

SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash) -- Here's a holiday we can all get behind: August is "National Anal Sex Month."

For the last three years, the Good Vibrations sex toy shop in San Francisco has celebrated August as "Anal Sex month" because, as spokeswoman Niki Khanna says, "the month has a lot of A's."

Khanna believes having a whole month dedicated to anal sex means people aren't as touchy about the subject as in years past.

However, she says the big challenge is convincing people that the activity doesn't "...have to involve penetration. Some people just like being touched on the tip."

She's got a busy few weeks ahead of her because Anal Sex Month is already one-third completed. Khanna is just getting the word out because she admits she got behind in her work.

Hillary Takes Out the Trash



I'm not entirely sure how I feel about Hillary in 2008. Maybe if she ran with Oprah on the ticket... But suffice it to say she'll need better creative than this ad currently running in New Hampshire. It is kinda cute though. Reminds me of the Saturday morning cartoon spoofs on SNL, and the message is definately on target.
