Things I’d like to do before I…


Jeff posted “Things I’d like to do before I turn 30″, and for some reason it made something go off in my head. I haven’t thought about goals/aspirations in a while, for whatever reason. The future used to be the only thing on my mind up until… Continue Reading

But I digress. Back to my lists. I turned 22 in March, and have 3 more years until I turn 25 and start heading into my late twenties. So I have some time to step it up and get motivated again… and this post is going to help (especially if I’m not doing any of these things in a year and can look back on my failure, ha).

Things I’d like to do before I turn 25:
Pay off my car.
Move to, and make a decent living in, Portland, OR.
Visit Japan for an extended period of time.
Write a screenplay.
Buy a house with a massive porch, to do lots of ‘nothing’ on.
Speak at conferences and schools, if not teach.

Things I’d like to do before I turn 30:
Get married.
Direct/Produce a feature length film.
Learn to play the piano (well).
Write for a publication (and a comic, shh).

Congrats to all rebooters


Today is May 1st, and that’s the end point of all Rebooting, and time for voting. Whether your interest peaks at CSS or goes to flash, make sure you vote either way. There’s a lot of good stuff this year and it should be great to see who comes out on top. The previous years have been okay, with the exception of the 2004 winner… which was rather excellent. I’ll dig around and see if I can’t find it. It seems a lot of people this year are doing a lot of things just the same as everyone else, and design isn’t about consistancy, haha. INOVATION, get to it.

Even giants reboot, but it’s about time. It’s been the same since he was all about PS.

Mikula: Toolbox


Certain things come up over and over again on new projects and it’s good to have a resource to reference. Hence, the tool box. I’ll be adding tools to this toolbox as often as things come up. What can you find in this post? Everything from pre-hover states, Safari/IE hacks, and the like. I personally think Safari has more problems than IE. Some things just don’t work for IE, but really don’t work 1/2 assed or different than they should… it just doesn’t support some useful shit that people ant. Safari on the other hand likes to partially support attributes… like line-height. The only Safari specific hack that works perfectly without affecting other browser is the bracket… Continue Reading
