A not so "dumb review" of the Portlandia opening... →
I’ve got the day off work, and I love Portlandia. Caleb Shively cuts to the point of what makes the open so cool. Portlandia episodes start with a cold open that usually makes very little sense, besides the first episode its not clear where the show is set, and in many cases if there are even regular characters. Jumping from that manic cold open to the chill Washed Out theme song and...

As you may have noticed (ha!) I switched my main site to Tumblr after having used Squarespace for about a month. Its nothing against Squarespace. In fact, I would recommend SS to just about anyone who wanted a “serious” site that they could build a brand or portfolio on. The ease of use and total control is exceptional. Their Android and iOS apps are also top notch. But it was total...

I had a pretty good discussion with a coworker today. She was recalling starting out as a secretary, using floppy drives to load her word processing program, and of course, remarking about just how different thigns are today. I regularly hear from staff that they feel like they are simply trying to catch up to Technology (like its this monolithic “thing”). The subtle undertone being...
