The Rise And Fall Of My Pet Droid

It’s that time of the month! A new addition to The Traffic Is Terrible is live. TTIT is my musical playground. Where I can let loose and really surround myself with the thing I love most in this world. Music. Since I am not a real musician, and I can’t really play any instrument well, all that is left for me to do, is edit and mix other people’s tracks.

I Need Closure

I need closure. Not with a girlfriend or anything like that, I’ve been happily married for over four years now, but with my side projects. A few days ago, I realized that papahood is just around the corner, and I still have so many side projets just waiting for a final push. How the fuck am I gonna manage getting them all done and juggle being a father at the same time?

The Baby

Remember that Seinfeld episode? It was by far one of my favorites. I really hope that Adva and I won’t grow up to be that kind of parent. Well Adva doesn’t have that annoying voice. She has a quite pleasant one if you ask me. Also, I am pretty sure our baby won’t look like Lyndon Johnson. It would look more like us I assume. Anyways, I guess what I am trying to say here is that Adva and I are pregnant! Yeay! Well, actually Adva is way more pregnant than I am. I am not pregnant at all. That would be weird. I mean, the baby is mine and all, but it is just mot in my womb. Cause I don’t have one. That would be weird as well.

No Nonsense

Two of my peers (and amazingly cool people) just released two great articles on A List Apart. Beside the fact that both articles are very very interesting (yea, I personally know and love the authors, but trust me I am being un-biased), they were also published in a very forward thinking publication. Yea, I know that A List Apart has been around for a while now but with each monthly publication, I am reminded of how they are doing it right. Every month they release only two quality, thought provoking articles.

Greenville Grok

Three weeks ago I came back from SXSW interactive in Austin, Texas. Boy do I love that town. The food is amazing, the beer keeps on pouring and the people are friendly and warm. The conferences…? Not so much. SXSW is not the same. This year they had around 40% more people than last year! Crazy! The problem is that the 40% seemed to be talkers - people who do not “do” anything new, but like talking about it. So essentially SXSW has turned into a bloated beast of social media douchebaggery…

Color Me A Creative

As you all probably know by now, an app called Color was released last week in to the wild. Since it’s release it has received some pretty nasty reviews, rants on twitter (myself included) and parodies. As a person that creates products for a living, I know for a fact that this scenario is a nightmare for the production team. My heart goes out to them. With that said, I think there is a small lesson to be learned here.

The Virtual Designer

Our favorite Monday night TV show is, by far, “The Antique Road Show”. Adva (wife) and I never miss it. In each episode, specialists from leading auction houses and independent dealers from across the country offer free appraisals of antiques and collectibles. Since my wife is about to graduate her degree in Art History, and I am a designer, we both absolutely love seeing all the fascinating art and design pieces people bring to the show. From family heirlooms to garage sale findings, from 17th century piano stools, to a laugh machine from the 60’s.

Javascript for Dummies

Since I am interested in continuing the development of my coding abilities, I decided that next up should be Javascript (or maybe JQuery?). Instead of researching for hours what would be the best method (book / video / website) for a beginner to learn Javascript, I decided that the best way is to find out is to just ask people who are smarter than myself. The Twittersphere. I got some really great results so far, and since a few friends asked me to share the results

It’s Time For A Change

Yup, I redesigned my site. Well, maybe not a full blown redesign, but more of a realignment. This had been brewing for a long time now and I finally got around to it. Though the previous version is only a little more than a year old, so many things have changed since it’s launch - Web fonts, media queries (even though they were around back then, I wasn’t aware of them) CSS3 and more - I had to catch up with an industry that waits for no one.
