Of Nothing In Particular

For dinner today I made use of Punch’s $3 pizza coupon. The Cortina (sans cheese) was most excellent. As was the company. Five other good things:

  • Laundry fairies! Ok, ok, so it’s really a commercial but it’s done rather well. And now I wish they were real and would help me. Mostly with folding. Oh how I despise folding laundry.
  • Los Vesparados is an art show combining the cult-following of the scooter crowd with hip and varied styles of art from a line-up of over 25 local and international artists. Opens June 13th, 2009 at 6:00pm and goes for the rest of the weekend. It will be in the gallery on the third floor of the Northrup King Building in Northeast Minneapolis.
  • Odd but interesting news: Andrew W.K. to host ‘Destroy Build Destroy’ on Cartoon Network

    Andrew W.K. has a new gig involving metal: The rocker will host Cartoon Network’s live-action reality competition Destroy Build Destroy, has learned. Each week two teams of teens — with the help of experts, wrecking balls, and explosions — obliterate some sort of large-scale vehicle or machine, then create something entirely different out of it. The winners get to annihilate the losers’ work. Destroy Build Destroy will debut this summer.

  • 100 Cameras Africa: cameras were taken to orphanages in Uganda and Sudan and given to children. After learning how to use a camera, their one task was to simply document their lives. The children’s photographs will be displayed and sold. 100% of proceeds from the sales will go back to the orphanages where the pictures were taken.
  • Clockwork, as always. I thank my lucky stars to work for and with such amazing folks. Especially the Geek Girls, pictured below. Their Twit and Twat mugs are most amusing.

    I completely want to work for Clockwork. You make it sound awesome. I can make good coffee, will bring cupcakes in everyday and make everyone laugh all of the time.

    Giyen, Clockwork *is* awesome! Wish you could fly out for our open house on May 14th!

    Gan, seriously, I’m curious to see how that Andrew W.K. show turns out. And wish I had more money to support the 100 cameras to Africa program.
