Check out @Molly23’s hipster dinosaurs. The first one (“Vampire Weekend”) reminds me of Comeau in SCOTT PLIGRIM VS THE WORLD. I think I need to go see that again.

At least you recognize the circularity of your plight, and highlight the manner that technology is destroying our souls.

Sharing xkcd cartoons is like telling people what the weather was like yesterday*, but this idea passes through my mind almost daily since my wife and I started living together. It’s such a weird thing that her presence is sufficient to calm my mental atmosphere, and that always seems noteworthy.

“This week, Frank is opening a miniature drive-in movie theater in the back of the space at 2326 E Cesar Chavez St.”

This is exciting news. Trailer food and movies sounds like exactly the kind of mash-up I can get behind. (…and those Wondercraft gals are the bee’s knees.)

I can’t laugh at this person, only with them. We have a couple tribal stories of a similar nature. @BOsmon, @FayreneSmith, and Laura J one night came up with a business idea where they would work as the middleman(woman?) helping homeowners find plumbers, electricians and handymen. (It’s called a “contractor”.) After a string of helping friends with stalled or stuck vehicles, @KellyMc and Peter E came up with a business plan where they would be available, for pay, to take their truck and tow cables out to help stranded strangers. (It’s called a “tow truck”.) Sometimes the best ideas have already been thought of, and you just forgot about it.

There’s a new version of TrueHDR that supports the iPhone 4 (along with other enhancements.) The pictures look better, but it still works better in conjunction with Camera+ (which Apple yanked from the app store, btw.)
