I usually try not to just link to things that everyone else is linking to, but this one is just too cool: visual daily headlines. (Thanks to kottke.org.)
Memories of old supermarkets, via Miscmedia. Up here in the Northwest, we had a lot of these old Safeways. There are even a few of the older ones still operating, as far as I know. When I was little, there were also Lucky, A&P, and Tradewell, all of which are long-gone (from the PNW, anyway)….
It’s almost Opening Day, folks….
Speaking of Wonka, the guy who played Mike Teevee has a web page.
So, who would you cast as Willy Wonka in the upcoming movie remake?
Sorry, I haven’t had time to post much here. I’ve been busy getting the Rubber Trouble Rubber Stamps sales site redesign online. It’s taken all week so far, but it’s finally up. If anything else is happening in the world, I haven’t had time to notice.
Steve Hawley mentioned www.icecream.com on metafilter today. The domain is owned by Dreyer’s and Edy’s ice cream (the brand name depends on where you live. Here, it’s Dreyer’s). The site is kind of fun for a corporate site, but by far the best part is the Flavor Finder. You can use this to find out…
Well, this is goofy. I think it would be a better deal to scrounge around under the couch cushions for change.
Another cool (but useless, really) thing about Mac Internet Explorer 5: when you hold your mouse over an image and the ALT text pops up, it does it in a little speech balloon (just like the Mac’s “balloon help.”).
As some of you know, I don’t really use a lot of Microsoft software. In fact, I haven’t run Internet Explorer on my Mac for a couple of years, because when I last ran it, I had horrible problems with system instability. Netscape has worked pretty well for me, but it is showing its age,…
Speaking of the Kingdome, this is all that’s left.
Pieces of the Kingdome are already for sale on eBay. Sigh.
The Kingdome is gone. Jason and I walked over to Beacon Avenue, on the west side of Beacon Hill, to watch the implosion this morning. It was quite an event, with tons of people everywhere, lots of loud helicopters overhead, and a gorgeous sunny sky. Before we left the house, I heard the song “Closing…
Freaks and Geeks got cancelled, and I barely got a chance to start watching it. I wish I could have seen more. I was in high school when this series took place, even. But as usual, network idiocy doomed this show from the start.
It’s the last day of Winter Quarter. This would be a Good Thing if only I didn’t have to grade final projects for four classes all weekend. Grades are due Monday. I have a fun weekend ahead.
