I’m totally kidding. I’m not the office weird…all the time.
I share the position with five other people–none of which actually work in an office. <–This includes me.
See, the office weird.
*tra la la lalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalala*
I seriously am just from the Land of Warped today. True story.
So, point. Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere point.
I’ve been trying out Springpad for the last week. Basically, it’s a web-based virtual notebooking app that allows you to create notebooks of information and interconnect them via tags.
Like Evernote, really.
Or any other millions of other apps.
I admit, I’m partial to Evernote because of the offline usage and smartphone apps. Springpad does have an offline mode (that I haven’t tried yet), but because I have a Blackberry, there isn’t an app, per se; there’s a mobile site. *hands* It’s not that big of a deal (I have to do the same issue with Google+, the bastards.).
Springpad’s okay. In the last week, Springpad has become my online collection app for quixotism and curiosity while Evernote is my go-to for long-term collection and storage. <–It’s also the program I wrote my NaNoWriMo novel, Hood, in since I could have all the research and reference photos at the ready and cataloged appropriately. Also, I could work on the novel anywhere I wanted to through the mobile app.
OCD=me. What can I say? I’m an organization crazy.
As I use it more, I’ll let y’all know more about using it–or, you could try it yourself. It’s free after all.
So, for some reason, I almost always have Attack of the Show or X-Play on while I’m sitting here fiddling with the thinky-thoughts. Today, Craftzine was mentioned on Attack of the Show for a how-to they did on using conductive thread so that you don’t have to take off your gloves to use your touch-screen phones. Easy version here: Touch Screen Gloves; more complicated version here: Knit Conductive Thread Into Your Gloves.
Geeks and crafters/artists are merging into one mega-being: The Creek. Or is is The Gafters? Best of both worlds.
It’s the Age of the Geek. *is totally Hardison from Leverage*
So, questions and oooooOOOOOOOOoooooooo for today:
Enrique Gomez De Molina makes these really interesting chimeric taxidermy sculptures. He’s being tried for illegal importation of endangered critter bits. Which, honestly, he should know better than to illegally import anything and using bits of endangered critters is severally hinky, but that’s not even really the point.
Does his artwork constitute animal cruelty? What do y’all think of his work in general (and conceptual framework)? What do y’all think of the usage of endangered critter bits?
And, in a less controversial oooOOOoooo, is Whimseybox. There are Wine/Cheese/Beer/Hooker of the Month sites (Okay, not Hooker of the Month. That I know of.); here is a Craft Supply of the Month option. Craftzine did an entire thing on it, and I kinda want a subscription. *rubs tentacles together all Mr. Burns-esque*
And, since Yule, Saturnalia, Hanukkah, Christmas, Squidmas, and any number of other holiday festivities, how about celebrating with “A Very Zombie Holiday” video from the lovely ladies at Team Unicorn FTW:
I totally realize that I owe y’all fairytale meta, but it’s not happening today. Holiday zombies and Team Unicorn are kinda over-ruling it today. Eventually, I swear.
Courage and Happy Holidays.
