Midterm Elections 2006

Tuesday, November 7th, 2006

I will spare you any political views today, you, like myself have probably heard enough. But, a quick observation. I spent about 2 minutes in line at Starbucks today and about 2 minutes voting. Couldn’t they help us all out and just put the polling stations in Starbucks!!

Your favorite logo?

Virgin

The Virgin logo has always been one of my favorites. Perhaps I just like the story behind it. I was told in one of my marketing classes in college that the guy that made the logo had no professional experience. Rather, he wrote Virgin on a cocktail napkin at the pub and it bleed. It looked cool and they went with it.

I wrote this article on logo design last year some time and never published it. So this is a sneak peak for the Savage viewers.

Remember Ring: A painful reminder

Remember Ring

“Did you forget your anniversary again? Missed your significant other’s birthday? Those Post-It notes and alarms on your PDA clearly aren’t working — how about some physical pain? Wrapped around your finger, the Remember Ring (get it?) will make sure you don’t forget an important date by heating up to 120°F for 10 seconds 24 hours before the big day, and then doing it again every hour on the hour. It’s equipped with a micro thermopile, converting the heat from your hand into electricity so the tiny battery stays charged and the internal clock never stops. Your jeweler will program the date, then you can just slip it on and forget your troubles; after all, that’s what the ring’s there to remind you about.”

Now that’s what I’m talking about!

9/11, 5 years later

Monday, September 11th, 2006

We all remember the day, it’s forever etched in our minds. I will never forget my Bible verse that day.

I try to read one Bible verse each day when I get to work. On September 11th, 2001 it happened to be PSALM 37:1-2.

It didn’t really strike me when I read it. It just brought to mind the Peter Tosh song with that verse in it. But, after the day unfolded and I went to read it again, it hit me hard. It brought me comfort to know that God was in control and that these evil men will not escape from God. They will have to answer for their actions.

Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.
For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.
