Cheap Porno

Last night was The New Pornographers’ first show in Philly in 2 ½ years (Not that I knew who they were back then). From up north they came (Vancouver to be exact) in support of their fantastic sophomore spectacle, Electric Version. The show was only 12 bucks, a welcomed departure from the TLA’s usual high ticket prices. With vocal leads… more »

American Splendor

American Splendor tells the true tale of hero-of-the-average, Harvey Pekar, a man wasting his life away as a hospital file clerk with no money, barely staying afloat in his own misery. A chance meeting with the then unknown Robert Crumb turns things around as the two start up American Splendor, a comic book based on Pekar’s day-to-day banalities. Pekar takes… more »

Macromedia Studio MX 2004

In an effort to further confuse everyone about their product names, Macromedia has announced its forthcoming Macromedia Studio MX 2004. The package includes Flash, Dreamweaver, and Fireworks, all sporting the continuation, 2004, of the already nonsensical “MX” moniker. But wait, there’s more! You could get the better version of Flash, Flash MX Professional 2004 for just a few more bucks.… more »

Freddy Vs. Jason

Well, I got to see the much anticipated (ok, not really that much…more on a “you’ve got to be kidding” kind of level than anything) Freddy Vs. Jason last night. In one fell swoop we get to see two resurrected (sorry) franchises again, but this time, pitted against each other! Hollywood once again earns it’s collective marketing degree. What results… more »

What You’ve Been Waiting For

Nearly in time for next year’s party, the gorey pictures and video from the last birthday cut up, Camp Naked Terror 2 : Instruments of Death, are online for your viewing displeasure. Strap on your Flying V and have a looksey (also included is a animated tribute by Jeff Bandelin, as well as last year’s video and pictures). And when… more »

The Big Move: Part 2

Well, we are finally in the new apartment. The move was marked this past Saturday with a whole lotta lifting, sweating, swearing and whining from all invloved parties. But its done! Four flights down, four flights back up makes for an awful way to spend your time. Everything went almost perfectly…until the battery in the moving truck died just before… more »

De-Loused in the Comatorium

Whether founded or unfounded, by saying this I risk similar commentary to my last post from my three regular visitors; I just aquired the new Mars Volta album, and it fucking rocks. A few years ago my two favorite bands were probably the Murder City Devils and At the Drive-In. One of the best shows in recent memory brought both… more »

Moving On and Moving Out

Today is my last day at Power Design. I have taken a new position as a Multimedia Designer at TMX Interactive (ironically located about two blocks from my last dwelling in Conshohocken). For those not in the know, TMX is another design agency (doing exclusively interactive work). Luckily I already know some of the people there, since I went to… more »
