The Super Bowl

Each year the Super Bowl logo gets lamer and lamer.  See?

Is that boring or what?  The font is all goofy and the two stars are different colors for seemingly no reason.  I hate it.  It's boring.

Thankfully, Stefan G. Bucher of 344 Design has come to the rescue and created a Super Bowl logo that is interesting and appeals to everyone.  I've given you the annotated version.  Enjoy.

Who do I think will win?  I don't really care, but I'm going with the Steelers in a close one.

The Whigs

I don't post about music much, but I've been wearing out the new album by these guys:

They make a lot of awesome noise.

3D Livin'

This is me enjoying the 3D with my new 3D glasses:
I never knew how vivid the world could be until I saw it in 3D.  3D changed my life.

Random Things

Holy crap. It was cold as hell here this week. See?

Fortunately, nothing important froze like my pipes or the fluid within my eyeballs. The cold was the hot topic of the week and it seemed like that was the only thing anyone could talk about. Everyone's Facebook status said something like "I think my toes fell off." The funniest comment I read about the cold was from my old friend Christian who tweeted ( the following:
"Sure, it's 10 below zero with -30 wind chill. But it's a *dry* heat."
Hey, CTA! Fuck you! You put signs up all over the El stops thanking us for our patience and guaranteeing smooth service.  In fact, the signs read:
"Three track is complete.  Smooth service on Brown, Red and Purple is back.  Count on it."
A guarantee of smooth service, huh CTA?  Bullshit.  Since the trains have gone back to four track service, I've had longer waits and more crowded trains than I did when the construction was happening and you were only running three tracks.

It's a sign of a failing organization when you handle crisis situations better than normal operation. It means you're dealing with crisis too much.  Get your shit together, CTA.

Look at what I made:

Wordle: Nothing

It's based on a monologue I wrote for Jerkology. It's about nothing. Or something. Or everything.

Finally, I'll leave you with this:
