New Year's Eve Pixels

there's something refreshing about making things simple: like making shadow puppets or playing halo on an atari... so let's get back to basics on this new year's eve. if you think it's easy to make pixel art go here and try it yourself. my first "pixelating" attempt is on oh by the way, happy new year.

Our Little World

we had a cool christmas surprise this year that i wrote about on my personal blog: i ran into a relative while getting gas in a town that neither of us live in. as i was telling some people at homer's about it, one of them said "i think i know your cousin, he's my dance instructor!" all three of us are facebook friends now. the world is shrinking as we speak.

Just in Case You Don't Know

if you're still trying to find that special christmas present, there are a couple of suggestions on the handwritten note that someone found near a school. also a quick reminder that homer's HAS chocolate & other goodies for your christmas shopping needs, and i'm personally giving away circuit bent ringtones on my blog.

All I Want For Christmas

john ainsworth, a regular customer at homer's, played me the ringtone i made for him a couple of days ago. it all started when he asked where he could get some cool space sounds, and it just so happened that i was already making them at home via circuit bending. ask and ye shall receive.

Got Up Early

i usually don't work at homer's on saturdays, and this morning was no different... but i still woke up early. kind of a bummer, but music like this helps. oh yeah, moon city big band starts playing at 7:30 @ homer's tonight!

Soup's On

More Christmas Signs

jenny & i watched christmas story with christy, josh, mike, and connie last night. as we walked past the frierdich's apartment we saw the infamous leg lamp poster in the window. after the movie, the conversation wandered toward blood, child birth, and other subjects that made me grimace, so josh and i tinkered with a circuit bent speak and math to drown out the noise. on a slightly more conventional note, the christmas tree is up at homer's with donations going to the city union mission.

Christmas Anticipation

you can tell christmas is coming just by the desserts on display at homer's. thanks to the good people who make them, and the good customers who eat them.

First Snow

nobody expected the little bit of snow that came through old overland park yesterday... none of the customers anyway. if we can all be a little more patient and be careful out there, everything will be alright.

Lost Art
