Become a skilled computer graphic artist - Splashup, online graphical suite

Photoshop is expensive and not very friendly. The Gimp is free, but it really annoys me with all that floating panes over my desktop. But now you have Splashup. Yes, finally I can finally stop my restless sleeping nights... Or maybe I'm exaggerating. Anyway, splashup is an online flash application with advanced graphical editing capabilities, ans is also surprisingly very easy to use. Maybe the adobe guys should learn something with splashup fellows...

Would you like to blend your iPhone with our new blender? - Will it blend?

This is just to crazy for not to show. BlendTec is a company that fabricates blenders, and are willing to do about anything to show you how good their blenders are. And they have fancy videos, presented by a crazy guy named Tom Dickson, to prove it. Also, you can suggest an object to blend. Don't think on golf balls or snow skis, they've already done it. You have to think harder...

Speaking on blending iPhones, here is the proof:

I think I'm going to suggest Tom to blend my photos from when I was a kid...

This one is easy, but I love the definition:

air quote

In conversation, the dual flexing of the index and middle finger of both hands, to signify the presence of scare quotes. Used ad nauseam by 'pretentious' and ostensibly 'intelligent' university students, to advertise their 'superior morals' and 'erudition'.
Using air quotes in this example is, like, so 'post-modern'.

Navigation hints

Besides the usual post by post navigation I want to provide other ways to navigate this blog.

Tag Cloud

On the right sidebar you’ll find the tag cloud, where you can see the most used tags on my posts. I try to tag my posts in a way related to the subject but also in a way that can relate the links with common features. Most common tags are:
  • Link: don’t know why I did it like this, but is a common tag for all the posts
  • Cool: I just love the word, and that’s the word I use to classify the links where you can become addicted. Maybe addictive was the right word, and in fact, I also use it, but I prefer “cool”
  • Fun and Useful: self explanatory
  • No registration: You don’t need to register
  • Registration required: The opposite
  • Application: Usually flash based websites that work as desktop based software and where you can have some sort of productivity
  • Collaborative: Community based websites, or just websites where users collaborate with the content
Search Bar

Right bellow the tag cloud there’s a search text box, to search for specific content on this blog. It’s Google powered, but you don’t have to leave the blog, the results appear right way in the content area. You can also search the web from there.

About this blog

This blog isn't about anything in particular; basically it provides links to other websites where you pass some spare time, and maybe achieve some of these goals I have in mind for my readers:

  • Have a good laugh and get some fun alone or with friends or family
  • Find some useful tools that will be of great use to you
  • Who knows, maybe you’ll find your passion in life or a great way for you to free it

This blog is also for my personal amusement, and maybe (let me be honest) to help my monthly budget grow a bit.

I realize the blog is somewhat difficult to navigate, so I provided some navigation hints to help my readers.

Hope you enjoy your stay…
