Halloween at Kimber Hollow 2014

The Kimber Hollow​ 2014 art yard haunt video is *finally* live!

You may commence “The Wednesday (Addams) Dance” or “The Mamushka” or ”Thriller”…
Whichever makes you look scarier.

Truly though, I hope you enjoy the setup. I had a bad year (medical issues) so we had to set everything up in one day so most of the details we pride our design on didn’t get outst the house.

If you’ll be in the Gainesville Florida area for Halloween night 2015, we’d love to have you stop by, snap photos with the creepy ghouls or tombstones, and… Oh yes… They’ll be a TON of candy!
#HFL!!

Boo y’all,

2015 #AprilFoolsDay – Best of the Web

Did you know???

  • The earliest recorded mention of April Fools’ Day, way back in 1392, is in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales?
  • In 1957, the BBC aired a television show about farmers harvesting freshly grown spaghetti. The network was then bombarded with letters from viewers asking how they could purchase their very own spaghetti plant!
  • BBC struck again in 2008 when they aired an elaborate video documenting the discovery of flying penguins.

These days April Fools pranks are even more elaborate and widespread thanks to our BFF – The Internet. Over the past decade, Google has continued to raise the bar on jokes & pranks (some of their “pranks” have become actual products – ah hem, Gmail’s 1GB+ of storage space!). Each year more companies, such as ThinkGeek, Virgin America, and Netflix, join the fun.

So let’s nix the dilly-dallying, tip over this barrel of monkeys, and see what’s funny enough to send snizzlebiscuits & sweet tea flying out your nose…

Pac Man Fever

Fire up Google Maps either in your browser or Android or iOS and search for Arc de Triomphe… Zoom in a bit. Tap the Pac Man button. Run from Ghosts. Rinse and repeat.  Check out Google’s hints for more locales to munch ghosts, strawberries, and ubiquitous dots.

Smartbox by Gmail’s Inbox

All the portability and anti-spam benefits of email with the tactile feedback of paper mail. This will finally put the USPS out of business! A gal can dream, right?

#ChromeSelfie

Reaction videos are SO frakking yesterday. Today, if you’re one of the super-cool, uniquely trending individual snowflakes out there, you’ll jump on board the Chrome Selfie bandwagon. Just visit a website via Chrome on your mobile, touch menu, then Share A Reaction. Smile real purdy like and show off that hipster hair!

Google Panda

Search becomes CUTE, round, fuzzy, and minimalistic black & white. Gotta give a virtual fist bump to Mr. Ozan Mindek – he’s got incredible language skills!

Go forth and click https://com.google.
I’ll wait.
Might as well tell it to do a Barrel Roll while you’re over there.

Google Fiber Dialup

Bee-naw. Bee-naww. Bee-nawwwww. (That’s my impression of the old n’ lovely dialup modem sounds. Sheesh. You try spelling it.)
Google Fiber is swell and speedy. But take a minute to slow down, dial up, and get your hugs on.

A Selfie Is Only Good As Its Stick…

// Join the #ValentinesThatDontSuck Initiative!

“Just say NO to tulle, crappy design, doilies, and suddenly becoming angry if there’s not enough roses in your bouquet or karats in your ring. Simply say YES: smile, mail a note, bake brownies, celebrate “Likes” & “Loves”, and… enjoy Valentine’s Day!”

Those of similar mindset: Welcome to the club!

See what I’m talking about by visiting my Valentines That Don’t Suck board on Pinterest. My goal is to have a curated collection of 50 Valentines for perusal in 2016. When you spot something in your web travels this year, or make something yourself, send me link or a photo please!

My favorites are the geektastic creations, like “I Want To Get In Your Pantones” by Lindsey Reveche at DesignValentine. DV’s tagline is “Talk nerdy to your design crush!”. Awesome, right?
