There’s a guy in my office who surreptitiously records the absurd things we all say, then sends a company-wide email with his collection to ring in the new year.
I was blessed — or cursed, I suppose, depending on your point of view — to have my first “real” programming job in the medical field. I wrote software which managed the processing of human tissue (knees, fascia lata, femurs, etc.) for implantation into human patients. I was very young and very stupid at the […]
Both elevators in my office include this notice: SHOULD THE ELEVATOR DOORS FAIL TO OPEN DO NOT BECOME ALARMED. THERE IS LITTLE DANGER OF RUNNING OUT OF AIR OR OF THIS ELEVATOR DROPPING UNCONTROLLABLY. PLEASE USE BUTTON MARKED “ALARM” OR TELEPHONE (IF FURNISHED) TO SUMMON AID. Here are a few of the issues I have […]
I just cannot understand people that don’t like The Office. Yes, I will agree that the Ricky Gervais / English / original version of the show was very well done and a grand comedic achievement. But after fifteen years I finally love NBC’s Thursday night TV again for two main reasons: The Office and the […]
Looking for work in the Los Angeles area? My company, Brandissimo!, Inc., is hiring! Read on for the details …
There’s a woman in my office who also happens to be the lead singer of Eloise. If you happen to be in Los Angeles and you get a chance to catch a show, you really should. I haven’t been able to see them live yet, but I have several of their songs in heavy iTunes […]
In the last two years my company has published almost 100 Flash games. That, my friends, is a lot. It’s very nearly a new game every week. We have a tremendously talented group of unbelievably creative artists and some of the sharpest web developers on the planet. The games we produce are generally targeted at […]
Alexander McPherson, a professor of molecular biology and biochemistry at UC Irvine’s school of biological sciences, wrote a bitchin’ letter to the LA Times on the subject of sexual harassment training. This is a must-read for anyone that has a brain. As far as I can tell from my colleagues, it is worthless, a childish […]
Just for fun, let’s take a look at what has happened the last few times I’ve taken a vacation. Late August, 2005: I go to Europe to celebrate my girlfriend’s birthday. Katrina wipes out New Orleans. October, 2007: I go to Hawaii to get married. My good friend, mentor, and business partner dies of a […]
More proof that Los Angeles is the world headquarters for Club Awesome™: In how many other cities can you get to the office one day to find you’re now working in Madonna’s crotch?
For lunch today a few of us walked next door to the new Brazilian restaurant that opened this week. It is literally in the building next to my office, so the bar at The Sampa Grill was the absolute closest place we could go to watch the second round of the Masters. The style is […]
A year or two ago I was returning to my office from lunch with some co-workers. I spotted an old, rusty, razor blade on the sidewalk. “You don’t see that every day,” I said. In retrospect I was probably wrong. Everyone likely sees dozens of rusty razor blades on sidewalks and in gutters every day. […]
Right now I am sitting in my suite at the Camelback Marriott in Scottsdale, Arizona, just a little more than a day away from getting to see my Patriots in Super Bowl XLII. The story of how I got here is incredible on many levels, and even attempting to do it justice in a blog […]
Awesome. When I woke up today I thought to myself, “I really hope that there is someone pounding on the other side of the wall behind my head with a hammer all day.” It looks like my wish has been granted!
